Show Notes

Early in his life he knew he was a teacher and that set the stage for him.

He astutely says: The two most important days in someone’s life are the day you were born, and the day you find out why you were born.

He started 6 companies with 5 profitable in the first year. And 4 of those companies were national leaders in the U.S. in their first year.

For most of his life — his core business — is to predict the future, and being right.

Daniel teaches us in this interview how to do it as well. How to predict the future and be right. This is astounding.

He’s made over 3000 keynote speeches, with a speech in China of 14,000 people to show the size of audiences he teaches.

He is a strategic advisor to some of the largest entities on Earth, such as the Pentagon & Google, teaching his methodologies, on how to accelerate their growth.

He has developed learning systems on how to anticipate rather than react. At the core, once again, he is a teacher and loves to empower people.

He drops the shocker on us when he says he doesn’t want us to focus on success and living the successful life. I could sense people moving to the edge of their chair on that one. He goes on to point out that success is all about “you.” But you should live a significant life.

Ponder that one. It’s quite a mindset.

He goes on to explain that and so much more. I recommend listing to this again, and again.

So we want to be significators instead! lol

And, we should be good at anticipating future events as Daniel so clearly teaches us throughout this interview.
