Connect or Die and Other Secrets of Relationships ­- Day 4 – Season 1

“Alex, if you keep treating this way, you will never have any friends and be lonely for the rest of your life,” my mom yelled.

I was in big trouble with my Mom.

You see, I had a real problem with disrespecting my mom and “adults” when I was in high school. I mean, I probably received a detention every other week. I once told my German teacher, “Screw You.”

I thought I was funny, but my mom hated it.

She continued, “If you want to keep being a jerk now, then you’ll be a jerk when you’re an adult. And no one likes to work when you’re an adult.”

Sadly, I didn’t learn my lesson.

I was told by multiple mentors and advisors that my personal skills suck.

I treated people like they were the village idiots and I was Einstein.

As I entered college, I made the ultimate career mistake: devalue relationships.

Relationships are your most important life tool. They are what bring new opportunities into your career and life.

I devalued other people; and because I did this I was

  • Fired from 2 jobs
  • Declined by multiple new job positions
  • Today’s episode is all about the power of relationships and how to build them.

How to Make or Break Any Habit – Day 1 – Season 1

Day one is scary. It’s scary to start something new because that inner voice comes out of the dark hole he hides in; he creeps behind you and says, “You’ll fail. Give up while you still can.”

KA-PUNCH!

That was me punching the doubting hobbit in the face. Why? Because this experiment is live baby!

Let’s step back to get the 10,000-foot view. So where is Alex at habits-wise before the experiment?

Exercise: NOTHING

Sex: About 2-3x per week

Books: Maybe 1-2 books/month

Keep listening to find out if I completed these habits and what lessons you can apply to your life.
