Living an Extraordinary Life with Stever Robbins

BR02-stever-750x340

Think about the last time you went in for a job interview or a meeting with a potential client. What was your frame of mind? It probably had nothing to do with the sense of creating an extraordinary life. In fact, most people think the same thing.

“Oh please, pick me! Pick me!”

But what if you went in with the confidence that you had something valuable to offer, and the interview was as much for you as it is for them? Then, if you landed that job, what if you weren’t afraid to ask presumptuous questions of someone way above you on the hierarchical ladder? Would you have the guts to ask for a quarterly dinner alone with the CEO?

Today’s guest, Stever Robbins, has a lot to say about happiness and success, and it comes straight from his research into the lives of Harvard Business School and MIT graduates. In fact, as a HBS graduate himself, Stever has been an executive coach for many years, helping his clients understand how to live an extraordinary life, and it all comes back to daring to do what you think you shouldn’t.

Do you want to realize how much value you really have, and your potential to live an extraordinary life? Then you don’t want to miss today’s episode.

KEY POINTS:

  • At 4:00 – Stever talks about the experiences he had interviewing his fellow HBS grads, and asking them if they had an interesting, satisfying, happy life. He also talks about the two kinds of happiness.
  • At 10:00 – Stever explains that entrepreneurs don’t necessarily have more control of their destinies than corporate employees. In fact, corporate employees just pretend they don’t have control, but they really do, if they have the guts to seize it.
  • At 15:00 – Want to know how to talk with your CEO and know how to contribute? Stever explains how to catch the attention of higher ups – and even high profile clients – by asking great questions and doing the legwork they don’t have time to do.
  • At 21:00 – Danny and Stever discuss the importance of learning how to learn, and understanding what is good content.
  • At 24:00 – Stever gives listeners three concrete actions they can take today to live a more extraordinary life.
