In this show, you will learn:

  • The difference between a “level 10” person and a “level 5” person facing a problem or obstacle.
  • How “becoming bigger” than your problems or obstacles is a major key to success.
  • How predetermining your reactions to a problem or obstacle sets you up not only to face them, but to conquer them.

Also, David shares one of his favorite quotes by Teddy Roosevelt from The Man in the Arena: Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In a Republic”, Delivered at the Sorbonne in Paris, 23 April, 1910.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
