The way you start your day dramatically affects how the rest of your day will unfold.

In this mind-blowing episode we get to hear from one of the world’s top leadership experts, Robin Sharma. Sharma discusses his bestselling book, the 5 AM Club — a series of mental frameworks for morning and daily routines to increase your productivity, prosperity, and performance.

Robin discusses the methodology, the science and the belief system to the proven formula that thousands of the most successful and fulfilled people in business, relationships and athletics all have in common.

The 5 AM Club challenges us to leave mediocrity and pursue mastery. It takes us on a rollercoaster ride into the latest science on elite performance. Ultimately, it provokes us to reach deep insides our hearts and souls and connect with the hero that lives inside of us — but may be lying dormant.

If you take the Victory Hour, you are fundamentally more focused, productive, brave and of more service to the world that you cannot help but change the world.

— Robin Sharma

World class is not an event – it’s a process. Great business, great relationships and a soaring, creative, loving, high-impact life takes work and takes a process.

Consider this your wake up call to your greatest self.

Don’t fall into the trap of ‘being busy being busy’ but never honouring your gifts and talents. Tune in today.
