Ep. 010: Your Obsession Becomes Your Possession!
00:20:56

The title of Grant Cardone’s book, Be Obsessed or Be Average, speaks for itself.  Everybody obsesses about things whether or not we care to admit it.  The question is how correctly focused those obsessions are when it comes to obtaining the life we desire.  He said in the audiobook, “The greatest YOU… will be discovered far outside your comfort zone!”  This podcast challenges us all to become aware and properly in control of our obsessions.  Since much of what we want is on the other side of fear, our proper obessions can also drive us in willingly taking decisive actions outside of our comfort zone to expand our scope of joy, satisfaction and overall accomplishment.
