Kyle’s Top Two Book Recommendations
One of Kyle's book recommendations was written by Rap Legend 50 Cent who made his wealth through creating music, movies and books like this one. The book is called ‘The Fiftieth Law’ and its surprising how many people are turned off by this great read. However, inside its covers, Kyle tells you how fear is just an illusion but it's your brain that perceives it as real.
Having a safety net or ‘plan B’ underneath you for all the just in case moments in life is one of the biggest reasons many people do not reach their true greatness. Kyle learnt this valuable lesson when he left his teaching career with nothing but an idea, massive amounts of passion and a drive to succeed. Having a Plan B stops you from pushing into true greatness. You'll never know what you’re truly capable of in life if you constantly live with a safety net under you.
If you want to achieve anything at all in life, you must have clarity. Having a clear path to follow is essential. Kyle says that having clarity is like a spider on his web: you're much more connected to your environment. The problem many people face is that they only look what's on the surface, searching for short term gains but fail to see the long term benefits.

It's important you take control of your life and have a set of rules. Kyle lives his life using a few key rules which he shares the first five in today’s podcast. Kyle quotes “discipline will get you everything in life”. Discipline doesn't mean not having fun.
As soon as you start taking full responsibility for everything in your life, you’re going to give yourself more freedom. What most people spend their lives doing is blaming everyone else for their own problems. Kyle’s big ‘aha’ moment was when he took control of every single thing that manifested in his life.
If you find yourself procrastinating and putting off the important tasks that will move you forward in life, then urgency and specificity is what you must learn. Having a deadline to work towards is how you achieve your goals. Without them, there simply is no urgency.
Kyle shares his 25% rule and why you shouldn't be creating to please everyone. The truth is, when you start standing for something, you will get people who dislike you. But those who do like you, won't just like you, they'll love you.
