EP151: You Have to Be Brutally Honest with Yourself (If You Want To Grow)


Are you playing all out? Alex recently went through an important exercise that made him realize he wasn’t. He encourages everyone to check out the Wheel of Life self-assessment tool and to rate themselves, honestly, from a scale of 0-10 on where they stand in certain key areas of their life. Alex believes if you’re hitting a 7 or less, you need to reevaluate your life’s priorities and get yourself running on all cylinders again!

Key Takeaways:

  • Alex is really reflecting on how this year turned out as things begin to slow down.
  • Alex recently went through an exercise called ‘The Wheel of Life’.
  • When you’re doing the exercise, you have to be incredibly honest with yourself on where you are right now in some of the key areas of your life.
  • Alex has always been his harshest critic. He’s guilty of comparing himself to where he should be in life.
  • Alex had to do the wheel of life exercise twice because he wanted to make sure he was truly, truly, being honest with himself.
  • On a scale of 0-10, if you’re putting down a 7 or less, then you really need to re-evaluate where you want to be and strive to get there.
  • For example, Alex is not running on a 10 with his health. He’s slightly overweight and he’s uncomfortable with this.
  • If you’re not playing all out, you’re doing yourself and your family a disservice!
  • Sometimes we know what we gotta do, but we just don’t do it! Man up!
  • You don’t need more courses, tools, and resources. You need to push yourself and work for what you want.
