Power Quotes From The Show


Why Routine Is The Secret To More Freedom

"When you firmly stick to a routine and schedule, you will have taken away all the complexity of making decisions to free up your day, give yourself more freedom, and live a more fulfilling life. The word, 'routine,' sounds very rigid; however, it allows the rest of the day to be totally un-rigid. If you look at the most successful people in the world, they all identify routine as being critical to their success. It's not the same routine for everyone, it's just a routine that works best for your life." - David Hauser



The Most Important Factor Is You

"The biggest change for myself has been identifying what works the best for me. I've spent a lot of years thinking that I just need to listen to what other people are doing, how it works for them, and taking in that conventional wisdom. So, when I understand that what was important was how it worked for me, how I felt, and how performed, that was a paradigm shift that I just can't compare to anything else. That new mentality then allowed me to try different approaches, individual testing, and uncover what actually worked for me but until I stepped into that mode, nothing was possible." - David Hauser



Emotional Intelligence Is Key For Human Optimization

"Emotional intelligence is a key part of the human optimization process because it's so important to identify with both the emotional and physical feelings that you have. Most of us, and myself for sure, try to ignore and cover-up those feelings as much as possible but when you actually want to change something, you have to open yourself up and be present."  - David Hauser
