Aaron Walker: From Ordinary to Extraordinary

By  |  0 Comments


Today’s guest Aaron Walker started his career as an entrepreneur at 13. Nearly 40 years later he’s run over eight businesses and sold some of them to Fortune 500 companies. These days Aaron focuses his efforts on helping ordinary men become extraordinary.

During our conversation he shares with us the following priceless information:

  • The truth about the relationship between money and happiness
  • The importance of significance
  • Why you need to subject yourself to scrutiny


Money and Happiness

From the point of starvation to about $70k/year, money can make you happy. Afterwards, any additional money you earn will bring you minimal happiness. While money is nice and can do tremendous things for you, it should not be your primary objective.

The problem with attaching your identity to tangible possessions is that when you lose them, you become devastated. Money and possessions should be the means by which you live your life, rather than what you live your life for.

A major trap a lot of entrepreneurs fall for is working towards a monetary goal and thinking about happiness in terms of “when” (e.g. I will be happy when I earn XX amount). Instead of focusing on “when”, we need to learn to enjoy today and enjoy the now. The key is to learn to be content, but not complacent.

Significance

Your family and the relationships you build are central to your success. You can chase after your dreams, but don’t forget significance. Make a concerted effort to pay more attention to other people and help people who can’t repay you. You’ll find that if you do so, you will be much more successful and significant at an early age.

Subject Yourself to Scrutiny

We are only able to view our world through a single lense. Subjecting yourself to the scrutiny of others may be a painful process, but it is vital to personal growth. When you let your veil down and show others the real you, you will gain strength and excel in your success and significance.
