As someone who has made and lost millions, authored international best-selling books, and hosts a top podcast, investor and serial entrepreneur James Altucher knows a thing or two about getting results and the failures that happen along the way.  Join host Hal Elrod as he interviews James in his unique process for achieving goals and overall self-improvement.

Rather than having specific goals in mind, James sets out to make himself 1% better in four separate areas: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Centered around the idea of self-respect, James has lifted himself up by following his daily practice any time he’s hit rock bottom.

By improving himself through his daily practice, James is able to focus and take control of his life to achieve results through

  1. Sleep, diet, and movement
  2. Avoid spending time with people you don’t like
  3. Aim to be creative everyday
  4. Be grateful for what you have

Ultimately, we chose the experience we get to have in life. You can’t predict the external, but you can control the reactions you have to the challenges that life throws your way. Enjoy each and every day and avoid attaching your significance to anything outside of yourself.
