Craig Ballantyne is known by his clients as the “World’s Most Disciplined Man”. He built his Turbulence Training Empire with over 13 million viewers, and then Craig acquired the world’s biggest success newsletter, EarlyToRise.com. His first book, The Perfect Day Formula, has helped over 35,000 high-performers own the day and take back control of their life.
On today’s show, we talk about his early beginnings in Canada and how he reached a goal to become super fit while at the same time falling into what he calls the “paradox of freedom” and why that is not exactly a good thing. From there we dive into how Craig coaches people on the proper way to set boundaries and maintain structure for their lives, how to get your values and vision in order, and effective ways to deal with anxiety and stress.
After the show, make sure to listen to the previous episodes with James Altucher and Justin Goff we referred to, which will give you even more insight on how to deal with these issues and ways to make your life more peaceful, focused, and stress-free.
“We need this structure and these systems in place and when you put that together, you get true freedom.” – Craig Ballantyne
