In today’s show, Kyle shares his brother’s story of how he became one of the world’s top online poker players and how it relates to following your own passion to greatness.
“The universe is always looking for a port to plug inspiration into” Kyle quotes. If you have your eyes and ears open and your hear is ready for transformation, opportunities will open up in front of you.
Your Unique Gift
How did Reece become one of the worlds top online poker players? He realised he had a gift and chose to follow it, ignoring all the many people that told him he couldn't do it. He went against the grain and ran the opposite way to the rest of the herd. As a result he lives a life full of happiness and passion.
Kyle’s story was a little different to his brother Reece.. “I was the least smart” Kyle says. This actually was a sign to become a little more obsessed and pushed him to work harder. “To be greater at anything in life, you've gotta be a little obsessed”.
The omens are going to be your guide posts. They will let you know if you’re on the right path to greatness. Remember omens will be with you throughout your entire life, you've just got to be aware of them.
Connecting The Dots
There’s a reason why everything happens in life. You’ll never realise the reason why they happened until you stop, look back and connect the dots. Kyle refers to it like a mountain climber plotting his course up the face of a cliff. There is no clearly defined path to follow. Kyle also met legendary copywriter John Carlton who wrote the ad for a weightlifting book Kyle bought. Which them became Kyle’s training philosophy for the next 3 years of his life.
