Episode #123: Decoding the mindsets of the most successful people: why some people succeed and others don’t + how we are doing self-help all wrong (with Jordan Harbinger)

January 23, 2020

In this episode I interview journalist and top podcaster Jordan Harbinger on what mindset it takes to become successful, how people are doing self-help all wrong and what we should do instead, and why telling other people about our goals can actually be counterproductive and detrimental.

Jordan has hosted a top 50 iTunes podcast for over 12 years and receives over six million downloads per month, making The Jordan Harbinger Show one of the most popular podcasts in the world.
