Description

We live in a world where people are struggling, scraping, grinding, worrying, over-indulging, and over-medicating. In addition to that, they’re underperforming, many lack motivation and direction, and “average” is suddenly acceptable. The Top 1% Podcast is the antidote to mediocrity. If you’re ready to maximize your performance in all aspects of life, become a world-class leader, achieve success so that you can build enough resources to serve others, be happy and fulfilled, and live for something larger than yourself, you’re in the right place! Our Creator has given us each more brain power than we could exhaust in 100 lifetimes, and it is our calling to develop that potential to its maximum capacity in order to serve others while we're blessed to be alive. Welcome to our community!

Quotes:

 

‘The right people to study, I call them old dead guys.”

“Fundamentally, the way the monetary system is set up, it is very much a form of economic slavery. I’m trading my time for money.”

“The way to really help people is to get them in a position where they have enough passive income where they don’t have to play the game anymore. They don’t have to trade their time for money.”

“We’re giving 40% of our income to institutions. We’re giving it to the mortgage company, taxes, Wall Street,  and the credit card. So, it’s there. It’s just other people figured out how to get it before we could get it. ”

“There’s an acronym we teach called “D.I.T.I.” It stands for Debt, Insurance, Taxes, and  Investments. Those are the four categories you would go after.”

“Part of the process is learning how to critique meals and snacks on the go so that way, you can live this lifestyle.”

After becoming a Digital Nomad in 2010, it was two years into that journey when Johannes realized that he definitely missed having like-minded people around him. So he took action and started to build the community that ultimately led to one of the largest digital nomad Facebook groups and the accidental creation of Nomad Cruise, which now attracts nearly 500 participants on each voyage and is one of the largest ‘workation’ events in the world.  He is also the founder of Homebase Global, a travel community for remote workers.

“Either you are becoming a part of a community, or you join the nomad communities where you actively meet other people around the world who are doing this as well.”

“You can meet on one (1) cruise more people and make more connections than I did in four (4) years of traveling.”

“You really need a community. You either need to be traveling with your partner, or you need to meet other people who are doing this as well; otherwise, this lifestyle can get very lonely quickly.”

“Body language and eye contact, those types of things are going to tell a different story than what you are being told.”

“Look at your workplace as if it is a bookshelf. Every book on there is one of the team members. Every one of those books, you should have a better understanding, at least a little bit of a summary.”

“If you don’t train them (employees) and invest in them, they’re gonna leave anyway.”

 “Your (company) vision should be not more than two sentences.”

“Simplification is always more effective over the long term than complication.”

“Be open.  Be transparent. They are going to value that more than if you try to hide something on why you did something a certain way.”

“People will hold their ideas if they feel that you are not gonna take their communications and take them seriously.”

“There’s a lot of people out there who would take a job for $10,000-$15,000 less if they know they are at a place that’s making a difference and they are making a difference than going to a place and having to live in a toxic environment.”

“If you want to be a good leader, you also have to be effective.”

“Failure is temporary, failure comes and goes. It’s only really defeat if you let it. If you learn from it, failure is one of the greatest things, it gifts.”

“At the end of the day, we’re not buying excuses. We’re not even buying promises. We’re buying outcomes. “Be A Pro” is the beginning of that.”

“We all focus and fixate so much on the destination, we forget the journey. If you don’t enjoy the hunt, the kill rarely satisfies. ”

“I don’t believe in the words budget or retirement because those are limiting. If you wanna have an abundance mindset, you use cash management and you use freedom because those are truly objectives and choices and not destinations.”

“So often we got caught in the losses. A practice I implement with my daughters now is at the very end of the day, we’re laying in bed, and it’s “What was your favorite part of the day? Let’s talk about the win of the day, win of the moment”. Because if you’re not enjoying those, you’re gonna pass by and you’re gonna continually feel the grind and not the growth.”

“Opportunity cost is not what you chose, it’s not the combination of things you’re choosing or the options out there, it’s what you gave up.”

“As a very new business owner I need to continually look at what is my most and anything that takes away from that in the now is something I have to have confidence in doing.”

Quotes:

 

“I realized if I didn’t start making over a million dollars a year, I’d never have that exceptional life that I’ve always dreamed of. It wasn’t so much [about] the money as much as it was creating freedom and that sense of accomplishment. ”

“By applying science to my life for the first time ever, I was influencing my daily thoughts and actions. And clearly I was operating at a higher level than I ever had before.”

‘’In the book, it says there’s a secret for creating success. But the author is only gonna give you half of the secret. It’s on you to figure out the other half.”

“The central concept that I uncovered was what you envisioned in detail on a daily basis is what shows up in your life.”

“We live in this world of clutter, and we have so much coming at us that we don’t even recognize a profound when it hits us up the head. ”

“What the book basically says is that you have to program yourself every day to override that innate programming.”

“You’ve got to override that operating system that gears you to survival, and you have to do it every day.”

“People are not used to influencing themself with repetition, only with logic. That’s why they’re great at influencing the intentions but not great at impacting what determines their success, which is their every day thoughts and ongoing actions.”

“My take on the secret is you don’t just imagine what you want, and it magically appears. The missing part of the secret was yes, you gotta envision in detail what you want but more important than that, exactly how are you going to get it.”

“We got strategies coming at our ears. What we need is to make those strategies show up in our thoughts and actions. That’s what makes this different than everything else in the success and human achievement field.”

“Control itself is your everyday actions. Focus is your ongoing thoughts, and your ongoing thoughts determine your everyday actions.”

“Success in life is way simpler than you think it is. When you feed yourself this immense amount of intention and clarity and feed that clarity to yourself every day, the magic happens.”

“You are going to fall off the horse, and you need to find a way to get back on if this is truly what you wanna do.”

“The Olympics occur once every four years. If you’re starting a business… it’s going to take four years for it to really come to flourish in, to slot in, and to start feeling comfortable and actually delivering results.”

“It takes four years to do something significant.”

“If you’re not planning from a business standpoint, if you’re not thinking four years out where you’re gonna be, [then] you’re not thinking long term enough, you’re not thinking big enough, and you need to elevate your ability to generate vision.”

“As someone who has to be at the top one percent, as someone who has to be a business leader, you can’t just go year-by-year, quarter-by-quarter.”

“Most people, in the short term, overestimate what they can do, and they underestimate what they can do in the long term.”

“As you age, you see the patterns of life emerge, and you can start seeing with that perspective more easily. “

“When you set out to achieve something big and don’t quite achieve it, it actually opens doors where you didn’t know any doors existed. “

“It’s not about the journey. It’s not about the destination. It’s about the journey and the destination together. It’s the interplay of the two.”

“The happy fail is really related to your values.”

“Sometimes, a desire can actually take you over and push you towards an unhappy success or an unhappy failure.”

“Materialism can be quite toxic. If that becomes your primary focus, it’s really deflating.”

“Once you identify which values are missing from your life, create a couple of principles around that, create habits, and cultivate those principles and habits so that you can slowly change your life’s  direction.”

“The value should be the foundation of your mission, of what you’re doing, and the vision of how you see the future and how you see your business changing the world.”
