Clips from the Bryant Chambers Movement Podcast. This podcast exists to help entrepreneurs adopt winning strategies for their lives and businesses. Become the strongest version of yourself, then go crush it in your business.
These are the 69 principles I know will get you moving in the right direction to efficiently and effectively take command of your life.
This program is founded on the philosophy of the great general Sun Tzu who said: "He who knows his enemy and knows himself, need never fear the outcome of 100 encounters."
In today's language, I take that to mean, if you have great self awareness and understand intimately the challenges you are working to overcome, your victory is guaranteed.
This program is designed to help you guarantee your own success.
The 5 pillars of self awareness are:
1. Know thyself 2. Know your core values 3. Know what motivates you 4. Know your unique skills 5. Know you your passion
I hope you enjoy the program. Look for a new video in this series every week. This program is similar to what you may have seen in Tai Lopez's 67 Steps program. A really good program that I wanted to emulate with my own story and principles I've learned. If you've been through that program, this will be a great supplement to you knowledge base.
Now, I know for a fact that 69 pillars are not everything you need to know to win at life. Think of this as a playbook that will evolve with you over time as you begin to implement the principles in these steps.
