I KNOW I ALWAYS SAY I'M EXCITED ABOUT EACH EPISODE OF THE SCHOOL OF GREATNESS.

But I’m REALLY excited about this episode.

And not just because the guest is another Ohio boy! (But I wore one of my best Ohio shirts and hats when he came by the studio.)

You probably already know him from his multiple hit shows on MTV. Or from his long list of world records in skateboarding. Or for his incredible branding with labels like DC shoes.

Even if you’ve somehow never heard of Rob Dyrdek, you’re in for a huge treat.

Rob is cool for many reasons. But I literally couldn’t stop asking him questions during this interview because he is so SMART when it comes to business, entrepreneurship, focus, habits, and vision. Just a few of my favorite things 🙂

Rob and I dove deep into all these topics, as well as the real motivation behind all of them – to create happiness now. We recorded this episode a few years ago, but I wanted to bring it back because what Rob teaches is still so relevant and powerful for entrepreneurs today.

I know you’ll get just as much out of it as I did in Episode 901 with the legendary Rob Dyrdek.

  • How do you describe yourself and your bio? (35:26)
  • How do you manage your energy so that you're always full? (40:33)
  • What are you non-negotiable daily habits? (58:46)
  • How Rob got royalties on a third of DC shoes' entire line in his mid-twenties (4:45)
  • What the term "stirfry" means in entrepreneurship (5:52)
  • What the difference is between a business and an idea (12:08)
  • Why Rob embraces stalkers (16:24)
  • The story behind his sister getting married inside the Fantasy Factory (19:20)
  • How Fantasy Factory almost didn't make it on air (26:45)
  • The story of how Rob almost died surfing with Laird Hamilton (33:38)
  • How to be happy everyday (38:18)
  • The key to living a balanced and full life (43:20)
  • How Rob's life changed when he met Tony Robbins (43:52)
  • Why it's so important to pick one thing to master (44:50)
  • Plus much more...

OUR THOUGHTS ARE DREAM KILLERS. The bigger the dream, the more fear you’re going to have. But to grow, you have to take on new challenges. It’s a real catch-22. I’m very curious about fear and self-doubt. In fact, I’m writing a book about it. In this new year, I want to challenge you to change the way you think about the things that scare you. I want you to start embracing difficult situations and stop letting yourself get in your way. Once you do, nothing will stop you. So how can we harness our thoughts so they start to work for us and not against us? On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I’m re-sharing a previous episode about facing fears with the creator of the “Five Second Rule:” Mel Robbins. Mel Robbins is the most booked female speaker on the planet with a 7 figure speaking business. Oh yeah, she’s also a bestselling author, a former criminal defense attorney, a CNN commentator, happily married for 20 years, and a mom of 3 kids. But what I really fell in love with about Mel was her passion, energy, straight-talking truth, and beautiful vulnerability. I’m pumped to re-share Mel’s incredible wisdom about how she overcame procrastination, fear, and low self-confidence after a devastating career blow and financial hardship. Get ready to laugh, cry, and learn how to master your thoughts to create extraordinary results on Episode 887.
Some Questions I Ask:
Once you mastered your thoughts, did you have no more fear? (13:30)
When did you discover the 5 Second Rule? (16:34)
What area of your life has the 5 Second Rule had the biggest impact? (38:22)
Is there any area of your life that you still lack confidence in? (41:54)
In This Episode You Will Learn:
The definition of habits (the good and bad side of them) (7:19)
Why it’s so important to control your thoughts versus your feelings (11:56)
What anxiety really is (15:45)
How we make decisions (26:05)
The neuroscience behind why the 5 Second Rule works (30:39)
How to use the 5 Second Rule in business negotiations (37:45)
What successful people do in their minds to keep moving ahead no matter how they feel (40:07)
Plus much more...
