Getting clear on the vision for your life can feel incredibly daunting, but once you gain clarity, every other decision you make will align with where you see yourself going. This takes discipline and the courage to show up for yourself daily, no matter how many times you get knocked down. Today’s guest, Wyatt Graves, is an extraordinary example of someone whose massive vision — helping everyone to live the good life — extends far beyond his personal gains. In this episode, we get to know Wyatt including the work he does in real estate and how the fear of not living up to his expectations motivates him daily. We also learn about how he helps his team achieve the good life. Wyatt does not believe in a one-size-fits-all definition of success and feels as though the hustle culture we have come to accept promotes hard work for its own sake. Instead, by honoring a personal understanding of success, everyone can achieve the good life on their own terms. Wyatt understands the power of community in getting to where you need to be, and we unpack how your environment and the people who you surround yourself with can either make or break you. Along with this, we explore goals and what stands in people’s way of reaching milestones, how Wyatt’s intentional morning routine sets him up for the day, and why getting out of your own way can help your vision grow more than you can imagine. Wyatt’s heart and drive to help others go after everything they want is truly awe-inspiring, and he is someone we can all learn a great deal from. Tune in today!
