Let go.

Let go of your lame excuses.

Let go of your crappy beliefs.

Let go that it’s hard to make enough money to live a great life.

Let go that you have to work a million hours a month to build an amazing business.

Let go that you have to be stuck in a job where you work your butt off, you hate, and it pays dog crap.

Let go.

My guest for the twentieth episode of The School of Greatness knows a thing or two about letting go.

He has one of the top sites in the world that teaches people how to build massive passive income online while living the exact life you want.

It’s with tremendous pride and excitement that I introduce my good friend Pat Flynn.

Hi Lewis,

I really appreciate the interview with Pat Flynn.  I got let go at age 54 as a Senior Mortgage Banker that just moved from Santa Cruz, CA to the island of Hawaii - opened the new office, bought a house and the corporation goes bankrupt in 23 hours 1 year later.  Lost my retirement, savings and went back to the mainland (Santa Cruz/Capitola) 5 years ago and built a Short Sale Division as a Realtor - 70 to 80 hours a week and little or no money and now this Northern California market has no inventory - and I have just become a Broker - too much hard not enough good and relating far too much with your sister's couch story. Enough!  Now at age 58.5 I have fully realized that "Success is not Final and Failing is NOT Fatal - it is the COURAGE TO CONTINUE that counts".  I have hootspa to survive and let go of that word and adopt THRIVE!  Thanks for the inspiration!  

Best to you,

Ellen Carter, Broker - Directions Real Estate

Hi @LewisHowes ,

It was a amazing and awesome interview with @PatFlynn specially the part where he talks about testing the waters first instead of jumping right away. It made sense specially for people like me who are into full time jobs.

I literally listened to it 3 times to imbibe the knowledge.

Thanks for such a great Interview! 

Keep rocking! Be Awesome!

Regards,

Deepanshu Manchanda, India.

It would be awesome if you could make your podcasts and webinars accessible to everyone. Not everyone has great hearing, you know. If Mixergy can do it…!

What you do is make people look inside to start having the conversations with themselves to bring out their full potential.  Great work and look forward meeting you down the road.

Loved this podcast Lewis - thanks for turning me on to Pat (making my way thru #46 of smart passive income -also awesome). The biggest thing holding me back from making more money? Hard to answer because I'm in the middle of getting my first *tastes* after years of hard work :) I guess I'm fairly fearless when it comes to inviting more money into my life. I love business just as much as I love doodling.

Making more time for family and other passions can be tricky when you're in the middle of your hustle. I'm just starting to strike a better balance in the last year & am choosing to spend time with people that mirror support, energy, and enthusiasm. In the last year, I've also had to let go of some relationships that were not supportive.

Major milestone. Saying NO to the freelance work that took care of my base needs. Fear kept me plugged into that work. Letting go turned into a huge YES - I'm making more than I did as a background artist for kid's books. Woot!

So grateful for your podcast and the opportunity to share! cheers, mollycules

Fantastic episode. Two Greats teamed up to give some great tips on how you too can achieve greatness. My favorite quote from this episode is: 

“The only time greatness comes before hustle is in the dictionary.”

This quote resonates with me because life as I have experienced it doesn't have to be a struggle. Rather it is a hustle that leads to greatness... that is if you don't let the detours derail you. Again, great episode @LewisHowes  and @PatFlynn!  Continued success to you both.

Great episode! I love that there is an idea that eliminating television is a "sacrifice"; I have't had cable since 2009; I choose what I want to watch when I want to watch it online and have freed up so much time in my day!

Pat is awesome... but he most certainly does not make $60K a month passively nor does he claim too. Pat works his butt off.

@Terry Springer Thanks Terry! Well, I do work hard, but I could walk away for a very long period of time and the income would still generate on it's own - that's pretty passive to me! There's no such thing as 100% passive though, in the sense that it'll be there forever without any work or upkeep - even real estate and other financial investments require upkeep and management along the way. It's all about flexibility! Cheers, and thank you again for listening to the show!
