Leaders like Steve Jobs surrendered to the motivational ideas of Robin Sharma, one of the world’s most renowned leadership experts. During an exclusive interview, he tells the essential keys to walk towards success

“Philosophy without methodology is an empty victory,” says Robin Sharma. He is one of the world’s leading speakers on leadership and personal mastery. As a presenter, Sharma has the rare ability to electrify an audience while delivering original and useful insights with the focus on people being able to do their jobs better, teams delivering excellent results, and making organizations enter the best-ongoing system.

For nearly 20 years, many of the best-known organizations on the planet, from Nike, GE, Microsoft, FedEx, PwC, HP and Oracle to NASA, Yale University and YPO have counted on him in their most challenging developments.

Sharma’s books such as The Leader Who Had No Title or The 5 AM Club have topped the international bestseller lists and his social media posts reach more than 600 million people a year, which makes it a real phenomenon. Bill Clinton, Jack Welch, Steve Jobs, and Shaquille O’Neal are some of the most famous figures in the world who have reached goals with Sharma.

“I hope that everyone finds a quiet moment to connect with childhood dreams, access their own heroic nature, and remember that even the longest life is a fairly short journey,” he says as a mantra.

How to sustain this path in a pandemic?

I believe that life will never be the way it was in early 2020. This does not mean that conditions will not improve and that there is no better future ahead. What I am suggesting is that the world as we knew it is not going to return. But I think with some of the essential rules to stay positive in a pandemic. Studies have shown that people who watch the news are actually less realistic than enablers because they get a skewed version of reality. Yes, it is smart to check every few days or so what is happening so that everyone can protect their family and make the necessary turns in their business. But spending hours a day watching events you can’t control is toxic.

Talk about the hour of victory, what is that about?

The first hour of your day has a huge effect on the positivity of the following. You have to take over the mornings. Start with vigorous exercise and then include some time for prayer, meditation, journaling, and reading, any practice that involves calm. These steps help keep perspective. Pests have happened before. Humans succeeded and often took advantage of difficulties to generate innovations that improved society. This too shall pass. This challenge can be used to remake our heroism, increase creativity, and build an even better life. “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” advised Winston Churchill.

You said that getting up at dawn is perfect training for self-control, why?

Because increasing it in one area of ​​your life raises self-control in all. You can play with your phone or change the world. You cannot do both. The idea is to focus, to work on a 3-step morning ritual that came about after working with high-performing leaders from around the world to create good results. While this morning habit will make you more productive, it’s also about reducing stress and maximizing creativity, happiness, and growth.

Why at 5 am?

The key is not the specific schedule, but when it is not feasible or useful it is not done, and that is good! The goal is to take what works and leave what doesn’t. Still, anyone can get up at 5 am. One of the gifts of the human being is neuroplasticity. If we recite our excuses long enough, we really believe they are true. We are made to change, to grow. We are made to own our heroic nature. According to University College London, if we do some practice or habit for 66 days, we reach a point of automaticity where it becomes easier to do that new habit than not.

What habits do you recommend for your “victory hour”?

We think in three twenty-minute segments, designed to prepare body, brain, and spirit for the day ahead. The results are going to surprise you. Genius is more about habits than talent. I think one of the most important things a human can do is hit the pause button every morning while the rest of the world sleeps and ask: How can I strengthen my thinking? How can I isolate my heart? How can I optimize my health? How can I lift my soul so that when I go out into the world, I am creative, productive, compassionate, radiate positivity, and have resilience in case I am knocked down?

Specifically, what are those three times?

I call the first one moving. The first twenty minutes should be with some movement. Dancing, walking, running, lifting weights, joking around, whatever gets your blood moving, your heart pumping, and endorphins circulating. The way you feel when you wake up is not the way you will feel at 5:20. In twenty minutes you will feel better and the brain will be ready for intense concentration. Then comes a time for reflection. It is a way of turning inward and connecting with what is most important to each of you. You have to do any practice that helps you connect with what is most important to the heart and soul. The last moments are to grow. Read, watch and listen to learn. Here are some ideas from my own library scheme for my growth: watch an episode of a documentary or a talk. Read everything imaginable. Take a free writing class or a hobby or skill you want to develop.

What are the effects of this 20/20/20 system?

When you exercise, you release something called BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) that really optimizes your brain. You also release serotonin and dopamine, which make you feel good and set you up for happiness and productivity throughout the day. Then you reflect. This step is about meditating, praying, journaling, just sitting quietly with your thoughts, or doing whatever else you need to do to reflect on yourself. These 20 minutes are ideal for filling your cup and enjoying some time alone without distraction. And it’s finally when you ask yourself the tough questions: What are my priorities today? How should I appear in my life right now? What do I need to change to be a better version of myself?

How can you contribute to us in this complex time?

We model the behavior of the people with whom we spend our days. Fill your life with exceptionally great, enterprising, healthy, positive, ethical, and sincere people. And in time these lofty traits will be incorporated as their own. Don’t let dream thieves, energy thieves, and enthusiasm bandits enter your bubble because you will surely be just like them. Self-love, self-care, requires that we rest, recover, and do what needs to be done. If you take any routine with the idea that you must be like a robot and follow a morning routine or a night ritual or whatever, everything will be a failure. We must be merciful to ourselves. There must be room for the difficult seasons of life.
