14 colossal Brendon Burchard quotes that will make you laugh and think 

Brendon Burchard runs a multiple 8 figure business and built his it around the mantra of the questions “Did we live? Did we love fully? And did we make a difference, did we matter? After a horrible car crash and going broke he finally managed to achieve this. If you get the time to watch some of his YouTube videos you will see how insanely positive, he is. So, if you’re not following him check him out or become part of his 3M+ members facebook group. If you are more of the reading type you can also grab one of his best-selling books, The Motivation Manifesto. Hereby you will find 14 quotes to make you think and laugh from him.

  1. If you create incredible value and information for others that can change their lives - and you always stay focused on that service - the financial success will follow.
  2. At the end of our lives we all ask, 'Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter?'
  3. We all have a life story and a message that can inspire others to live a better life or run a better business. Why not use that story and message to serve others and grow a real business doing it?
  4. The top experts in the world are ardent students. The day you stop learning, you're definitely not an expert.
  5. Have you ever played a video game that didn't have escalating levels of difficulty? Well, life can feel like play, too, when we purposefully engage in activities that demand we test and develop our skills.
  6. Business coaching and the personal development and self-help industry is considered to be one of the booming industries today.
  7. Meditation is a lifelong process. Give it a try. As you get deeper and more disciplined into the process, you'll get deeper and more disciplined in your mind and life.
  8. I have to laugh when I receive newsletters from major personalities and when you hit reply, you get a 'do-not-reply' address. It's ridiculous! Don't you want your customers to reply to you?
  9. My best mentor is a mechanic - and he never left the sixth grade. By any competency measure, he doesn't have it. But the perspective he brings to me and my life is, bar none, the most helpful.
  10. Those things that you just do, if you put that together in a DVD program, let's say, for $97, to teach people how to do that. Well, if you sold 100 of those a month, that's $9,700 of income a month just teaching what you already do and know to people who want to learn how to do the same.
  11. To inspire a singularity of focus, a challenge must be important to you and it must be something you feel you should do now in this moment. If it's trivial or not time-bound, you won't engage. So in selecting your next challenge in life, choose one that is meaningful and will demand your complete concentration.
  12. Even if you overcome a tremendous challenge and feel the personal victory, it's simply not powerful enough. It may activate your left brain, which says, 'I have achieved,' but it will not activate your more social right brain, which desperately desires to say, 'Look, Ma, I did it!'
  13. I've seen that phenomenally successful people believe they can learn something from everybody. I call them 'mavericks with mentors.' Richard Branson, for instance, is a total maverick but he surrounds himself with incredibly successful, smart people and he listens to them.
  14. Challenge is the pathway to engagement and progress in our lives. But not all challenges are created equal. Some challenges make us feel alive, engaged, connected, and fulfilled. Others simply overwhelm us. Knowing the difference as you set bigger and bolder challenges for yourself is critical to your sanity, success, and satisfaction.


There are two quotes in this with strike a chord with me when I look at te big picture in my life and I hope sharing this will help you to improve your life as it did for me.

The point about meditating being a driving force of self-discipline is interesting. At the point of writing this article I have realised based on the books of Tim Ferris and the quotes which went into this little project for my blog that meditation is a very common denominator between highly productive people. Still, I am not doing it long enough to give you valuable insight. What I can tell you is that when I started running and exercising again in 2013 after being sedate  good things started happening in my professional live as well and I got a new job which paid more and made me grow professionally. This project is a direct result of it.

The same thing can be observed with meditating. Since I started it I feel like I am more productive and positive and I am also considering options on how to improve my current job situation more actively as I am not satisfied, but with no significant outcome yet.

In addition, Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter? Are great questions to ask yourself to get some clarity away from the everyday grind. When I ask myself these questions I can say yes to the first two. I have moved out my hometown to study in Stuttgart and from there to live and work in Ireland. In Ireland, I found the love of my life and my relationship with her is great. The only thing I would like to improve on is whether I mattered. I feel like I have a positive impact on my direct family but not much beyond that yet. I hope this project will grow into something which will turn a lot of lives for the better.
