Chapter 5: The Tectonic Shift, Tsunami, and Undertow: Understanding The Power of Directional Pull (Part B & C) by Ed O’Keefe

There’s a paradox of success you must be aware of.  At the same time your tsunami of success is finally hitting, there’s an undertow of success generated as well.  Artists, athletes, celebrities, and entrepreneurs all fall prey to the undertow.  Beware of the undertow.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What the undertow does
  • Why even good companies fail
  • The dangerous mindset of success
  • Three mind freeing questions to ask yourself

Chapter 5: The Tectonic Shift, Tsunami, and Undertow: Understanding The Power of Directional Pull (Part A) by Ed O’Keefe Most people fail at success principles because they don’t know how to handle the reality of the path.  Goals are vital because they give us a directional point, but they aren’t everything.  In this episode, we discuss understanding the power of directional pull.  The idea that you need to have it all figured out before you get started, is a myth.  The stronger choice is to get moving.

Chapter 4: The Freedom Question by Ed O’Keefe We all seek things we’d like to change in our current life, and all solutions are hiding beyond the obstacles that we currently have.  There’s a distinct pattern of mental breakthrough that I call “The Freedom Question”.  This question allows you to shoot out of the present and into the future.

Chapter 3: Losing the Friction by Ed O’Keefe One of the biggest problems with self-help and success programs is that you leave with more on your to-do list than when you started.  It’s time to “Lose The Friction” as we dive into the third chapter of Time Collapsing.  When you lose the friction, you eliminate the meaningless work or relationships that are holding you back.
