Welcome once more to the “How to Be a Grownup Podcast Breakdown”! My name is Erik Andress and I am the host of this show. Today, I am humbled and grateful to bring you the words and wisdom of entrepreneur and mastermind behind the #besomebody movement, Kash Shaikh! He is an example of hustle, positivity and hope that we can all look to and try to emulate!
Check out this podcast interview with Kash to learn all his tips, tricks, and techniques that he wants you to know to live a empowered life:
In this podcast, Kash shares powerful insight on how his past experiences and the fight for success that he endured, have given him invaluable knowledge that people around the world need to hear and study!
While there were a lot of gems this inspiring entrepreneur dropped, here are the three most important ways Kash believes that you can do to dramatically increase the quality of your life:
1. There are many different valid avenues towards lasting success
We get told a lot that there is one way to succeed. You have to get the right grades to get into the right college. After attending the right college, you will enter the workforce and find comfortability in the fabric lined walls of your four foot by four foot cubicle. Soon you will find the adequate romantic partner and …ZZZZZZZ (*falls asleep mid sentence*) It’s BORING even just typing it out! The rules that have been imposed on you are PRETEND! Teachers, administrators, parents, bosses and so many more well meaning people have tried to keep you on the well trod path of comfortability and success.
You were BORN to chase greatness. There are extraordinary men and women over time that have MADE history not simply participated in it. Not a single one of these thought leaders made their mark on the world by doing the same thing that society has always done. Not a single one of those influential individuals changed society by embracing the status quo. Go beyond your boundaries of comfortability. Believe in the parts of you that are sensational and understand that you can use those to fuel your success in business, in relationships and in life!
“At first they’ll ask why you’re doing it. Later they’ll ask how you did it.” – Nathan Chan
2. Hear your haters, but keep moving forward towards your dreams
What steps did you take this morning to differentiate today from EVERY other day of your life? Did you eat a healthier breakfast? Did you sneak in a thirty minute workout before you had to head off to work or school? Did you hop on a call with your business partner to get a little grind in before you had to start your day in full? Did you send a text to your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband or wife to let them know how grateful you are that they are in your life? If you aren’t pushing yourself to be better from the moment you wake up, to the time that you lay your head on the pillow in the evening, then your haters are right about you. Then those that doubt you have a valid point.
Many people simply dismiss the naysayers, when they should be looking to see if there is any truth in their criticism of you. Are you going down a path that will lead your business into ruin? Are you dating somebody that detracts from your happiness as opposed to adding to it? Are you surrounding yourself with people that enable you to make destructive decisions instead of constructive ones? Develop a keen sense of self-awareness and become your own harshest critic. Demand excellence and discipline from yourself in all areas of your life. You can not have uncommon results when you keep taking common action. So, buck mediocrity by taking constructive criticism and pushing yourself to be more than anybody believed you were capable of becoming!
“Most haters are stuck in a poisonous mental prison of jealousy and self-doubt that blinds them to their own potentiality.” – Steve Maraboli
3. Sacrifice being comfortable for the greatness you are capable of achieving
We don’t go to movies to see the main character succeed immediately. We flock to the cinema to see somebody that embodies the “underdog story”. We watch films like this because they resonate with us at a core level, and shakes up something primal within our hearts. We love these movies because they portray some unassuming character that is willing to risk it all to find glory. They are willing to leave behind the comforts of home to face down internal or external demons. We love these films because we want to see that “underdog” spirit in us!
Understand that this kind of heroism doesn’t have to be relegated to movies. It doesn’t have to be stuck on the silver screen. You are the hero of this story. You are the main character that is charged with facing down the challenges in your life. It is now or never. Your journey towards success doesn’t start tomorrow. It has to start right here, right now, in this very moment. Get up from your chair and start making those choices that will lead you towards the success that you deserve to have. Lace up those tennis shoes and go exercise. Keep cold calling for your business until you get the coveted “yes” that you have been looking for. Call your significant other RIGHT NOW and tell them you just needed them to know that you loved them. Stop telling yourself that making the same choices, doing the same things the same way that you have always done them, is suddenly going to yield different results! You need to let go of your comfortability and start pushing yourself towards mastery!
“You must be willing, at any moment, to sacrifice who you are for what you will become.” – Eric Thomas
