Eric Schmidt has a coach. Bill Gates has many. Here’s Why.

That’s how successful people become more successful. It’s also how you can become more successful.

Many of the world’s top executives, like Eric Schmidt, have coaches that help them see more to make better decisions and live a better life. Bill Gates said in his TED Talk, “everyone needs a coach“. Technically, you don’t need one, but you want one for many good reasons.

A coach can:

  1. Help you see your situations from different perspectives for a more complete picture. When you are involved in the situation, it’s sometimes hard to see things objectively from above. The human mind tends to focus on how you see the situation based on your experiences, emotions, and expectations, therefore much significant information is simply filtered out.
  2. Ensure your actions align with your goals and whys. There are so many things that happen every day, it’s easy to get lost in the details and wonder why you do what you do at some point — e.g. midlife crisis. The not-so-funny thing is that you won’t know until it becomes too late. A coach can catch that before it happens. This applies to big or small things, such as your dreams or work relationships.
  3. Keep you accountable for your commitment towards your goals. It’s easy to put things off when no one is watching us. Sometimes life happens too. More challenges popup. Your dream gets farther and farther away and eventually, you just lose steam. Don’t let that happen!
  4. Provide you with more options and opportunities. You have only one brain — it’s a fact as of 2021. Maybe that will change soon with advances in brain technology, but until then, you can hire another brain to help you find more options and opportunities for any challenge and dream.
  5. Maximize your performance and results. Some coaches have expertise in specific fields that took decades to acquire and you get that too as part of the package. They can help you maximize your performance in your career, business, or life. You could learn them yourself by trial and error, but that’s not a very efficient use of your time — the only limited resource we have.

There are more, but I think you get the idea. In short, with coaching, you get better results for everything in life in less time. That’s more time for you to enjoy life! 😁

If you are not sure which kind of coach to start, start with the general practitioner of coaches — a life coach. A life coach can help you in all areas of life for a holistic outcome and point you in the right direction for specialists.

How Many LICS Does It Take to Gain Mastery in Life?

Just one.

Life
Identity
Control
Skills

To gain mastery in life, there are a few areas that you need to have absolute understanding and command of:

  1. Life: There are many theories about the origin of life, however that we began is interesting but keep in mind that they are theories and the truth is they are of no consequence in how we live it. Some theories leverage fear, safety, or purpose to turn them into truths. In reality, we don’t need any of that. It’s ok to begin without purpose so that you can define your own — that’s actually empowering even if it might not feel that way initially. It’s ok to die when our time is up, but you are definitely welcome to try to change that. Understand the truth that we are stardust and the materials that we are made of never actually die but changes to different forms in a neverending cycle of life and death. However, that’s only where we begin, how it ends is up to you — completely in your own hands and no one else’s. Appreciate the fact that you are conscious, act consciously to realize your dreams without fear or limits, and do good to expand the prosperity of humanity — that’s pretty meaningful. There can be many struggles and sufferings in life, but they are nothing more than obstacles in an obstacle course of life that you can appreciate as they help you become stronger and pave the way to define your unique identity.
  2. Identity: Who are you? Why do you do what you do? Most people don’t think too much about that until they have a midlife crisis or other traumatic events. Without knowing who you are, what you want out of life, and what everything means to you, it will be hard for you to achieve the outcome that you want as you are likely doing others’ biddings. Take some time for yourself to think about those things and explicitly define your identity, beliefs, values, purpose, meaning, personal mission, and dreams. What society or others expect isn’t necessarily something that you need to follow. That’s where it starts, how it ends is totally up to you so you can achieve the outcome that you want for your life. If you have a hard time defining your identity, then it means you haven’t experienced enough pains and pleasures of life — go out and do more. In order to create your unique identity, you may need to break down your existing primitive and societal identity, which can lead to suffering, such as depression — understand and appreciate that it is a part of the life journey. Becoming your authentic self is liberating, empowering, and necessary to realize your full potential. Your unique identity will guide the fine-tuning of your control.
  3. Control: What separates us from animals is our ability to have absolute and conscious control of ourselves instead of relying on instincts alone. That ability allowed humanity to achieve much of its greatness. The lack of that ability left many atrocities in history and likely more to come. Most people see emotions, thoughts, actions, and events are out of their control and are all tied together in a big messy world of life. That’s far from the truth. Each of those things is really distinct but your brain naturally ties them together as that’s how it has evolved to work. Just because it is how it works out of the box, it doesn’t mean it has to be that way. To gain absolute control, it’s critical to separate them. For example, you change yourself to feel excited or sad right now, which has nothing to do with any thoughts, actions, or events. The sadness associated with failure can be changed to appreciation at will regardless of the thought that failure does help you grow. Consciously change your emotions, thoughts, actions, and events and train your brain with associations that support you instead of destroying. You can decide to feel depressed, happy, or not at any moment or for any event — it’s really a choice. You can decide to think negatively, positively, or nothing at all about anything. You can decide to take any action at any time or not. They can be tied together or isolated. All of them are choices and skills that you can master independently so that they can be leveraged more effectively together. Absolute and conscious control will help you take your skills to new heights.
  4. Skills: All the steps in this guide are skills. Power steps improve your ability to gain unlimited energy. Happiness steps improve your ability to be happy every day. Productivity steps improve your ability to be productive. Prosperity steps improve your ability to be prosperous. Everything that you do is a skill, such as how you feel, think, and act. That’s wonderful as it means everything can be improved with effort and the right approach. Natural talent is where you start, but where it ends is completely up to you. Skills can be pushed to world-class levels using deliberate practice with passion and coaching. Identify the smallest unit of improvement, figure out the best approach, practice, rest, and continuously iterate based on feedback. Life itself is a skill. Learn to live a great life or let life push you around — the choice is up to you.

You might have noticed that all 4 areas have something in common, and that’s how things are today is where you start and where it ends is 100% completely up to you. Your life is in your own hands and no one else’s — no matter what happens in the world or what others do to you. That’s the essence of mastery in life.

4 Values To Build Long-Lasting Relationships

Happy Valentine’s Day! 🤗

I hope that you are able to spend time with the one that you love today. You deserve all the happiness that life has to offer.

A year ago, my relationships weren’t great until I figured out 4 values to building long-lasting relationships and made a pact with PUCT by embedding them in my heart.

P for Pleasure
U for Unity
C for Curiosity
T for Truth

Pleasure: Too often we get stuck in the dramas or necessities of life that we forget to enjoy it. Focus on creating more pleasure rather than pain. In a relationship, there is a threshold of pleasure to pain ratio, it will break once crossed. Is it possible to unbreak it? Yes, very difficult but not impossible — that’s from experience 😉.

Unity: If we simply do what we believe is right at the expense of the our relationships, then we have won the battle but have lost the war. Both are important and there are ways to solve the problems so that both can be satisfied, but the relationship comes first if you must choose one — because even if we accomplish the most amazing feats, they are pointless if there is no one for us to share with. This is how you can prioritize your relationship over anything else. 

Curiosity: The old saying “curiosity killed the cat” is better rephrased as “curiosity transformed the cat into a lion.” When you first met someone, you were very curious — you asked about everything. Over time, that curiosity goes away as you feel like you know everything and that’s when the relationship start to become stagnant. Always be curious with whomever you talk to.

Truth: This is the foundation that everything else builds up. If it’s shaky, it won’t be able to support the relationship. Sometimes, we are tempted and think that white/small lies are ok, but slowly everything deteriorates. Be an adult — talk about it and discuss openly if there are any discrepancies or misunderstanding and you will get an outcome that works for both as long as you focus on the problem, and not the people.

Learn more about the values at http://hp.guide.

I hope that the values will help you build long-lasting relationships with everyone that you meet, especially your loved ones.
