Ryan shares the difference between goals and desire and how that motivates him.
Ryan studies people he admires and then learns and emulates what works…. and ditches the rest.
We also discuss how people make the mistake of hiring someone to SOLVE your problems…..Ryan says you say you can fix the problems yourself by becoming the solution……. I love this.
We talk a bit about failure and what that means……Ryan says in the book that if you have not failed then you are probably doing something wrong. You need to fail to learn what it takes to succeed. Don’t be scared…… just take a step in the direction you need to go and be willing to take the risk of falling on your face……it’s just learning and life.

Ryan’s brand new book Rock Bottom to Rock Star: Lessons from the Business School of Hard Knocks….. is about learning to take those moments at the bottom, when you’re beaten down, exhausted, embarrassed, and cornered, and using them to propel yourself forward.
This book explores how he rose to the top and shares his personal formula for going from rock bottom to rock star” to be the absolute best at what you do.
