In this video, Alex Hormozi shares four perspective shifts that Dr. Kashey taught him to keep him going as an entrepreneur.

The first shift is to go a thousand times negative and re-evaluate when faced with a negative situation. The second shift is to expect the worst circumstance when preparing for something, such as working out, and make a pre-formed decision to act anyways despite that. The third shift is to focus on the process rather than the outcome. The fourth shift is to embrace the suck and find joy in the struggle.

These shifts help to manage one's own thoughts and decrease the likelihood of making bad decisions, ultimately creating longevity in the entrepreneurial game.

  • Longevity is key to success in entrepreneurship.
