Cool New Way To Look At Success Compliments of Alex Hormozi
Alex Hormozi's Refreshing Spin on the Concept of Success
I listened to an interview with super-successful entrepreneur Alex Hormozi on Modern Wisdom.
If you're not familiar, Alex is known for his game-changing insights into the world of business and self-improvement.
During the interview, Alex shared a really cool way to look at success.
When I heard it, I had to listen to it multiple times, write it down, and share it with you.
It is the perfect mindset to have, especially for those of us who don’t plan on retiring.
Check it out…
Finite vs. Infinite Games
He talked about how success is an infinite game but that most people get it wrong by playing like it’s a finite game.
Finite = Known players, infinite rules, the point is to win the game.
Infinite = Known and unknown players, no rules, and the point is to keep the game going.
Success isn’t about wins and losses or standing on the podium holding a trophy.
The True Measure of Success
Success is doing the things that make you successful.
Because if you do all the things that make you successful, then by definition, you are winning.
Three examples he listed...
If you are trying to get in shape, you don't win by getting in shape; the point is to stay in shape for the rest of your life.
You don't win at marriage; the point is to stay married.
You don't win at business; the point is to stay in business.
The point of the game is to keep playing.
The Process is Key
I love this mindset. It really forces you to think hard about what you want and are willing to do day in and day out to achieve whatever you want to achieve.
It puts the focus on the process rather than the outcome.
It’s why doing an exercise like Ikigai and having a deep understanding of what motivates you is huge.
The Take Away
Being successful isn’t a destination.
It's about doing the things that contribute to your success consistently.
Don't get caught up in the outcome; focus on the process.
Ask yourself this;
What do you like doing so much that you can do it every day, no matter the outcome?
Your answer to that question is one of the keys to work feeling less like and less like work.
Follow That River
Today’s tune is from singer-songwriter Nick Shattuck.
He’s singing to musicians, but his message easily applies to anyone on a mission to live life on their own terms.
I can’t tell you the number of times this song has lifted me out of a funk or helped me put things back into perspective.
Listen now because I think it’ll do the same for you.
As always, thank you for reading!
Have a good one,
