#25: Court Creeden on the Life Changing Power of Being Yourself

This week I had a candid conversation with Court Creeden, the founder of Parent Financial and the author of the hot new personal development book, Blue Goat. I like to dig deep into the story with people and Court didn’t hesitate to go there with me. Do you feel like there’s more to life? Do you feel like you’re destined to do more than just live for the weekends? Are you ready to make a difference by living your truth? If any of this applies to you, then Court Creeden is the Red Pill that’s going to wake you up.

A few of my favorite moments:

On sideline critics:

In the book, I actually call them the  ‘couch cowards.’ They’re the people that are sitting on the sidelines that, no matter what, they’re going to find fault with something because all too often they’re the ones who aren’t happy themselves. So, they’re constantly looking for other things going on in the world around them. They never want to look in the mirror they only want to look at the screen.

On living your truth:

And we’re worried about what people are going to think or assume or judge about us because of who we are and what we do. And, if we can say “I don’t care at all about how other people think about me, as long as I’m making decisions that are honest, genuine, and because they’re in line with the life I want to live, that’s living your truth.”

On appreciating what we have:

They have it all. They’ve got the house, they’ve got the car, they’ve got the job. They have all the clothes. They have a refrigerator full of food. They have everything you could ever possibly need or want, and yet they’re still thinking and worrying and concerned and consumed with what they still don’t have. And, we go through life year after year after year after year always worrying about what we don’t have, and never actually enjoying what we have.

On living every day like it’s your last:

If I die today, am I doing exactly what I want? And, I truly…I mean it when I say it, if I die today, I’ll be the happiest guy you ever met. Because I live every day to make sure that whenever my last day comes I’m exactly where I want to be. And, if I’m not in that place today, then I’m going to change everything.

On the magic of being yourself:

That’s the magic of being yourself and not being afraid to step out of the herd and being that Blue Goat and saying “no, I’m going to create, I’m going to do, I’m going to be myself. I’m going to be unedited. I’m going to go share whatever it is I’ve been given that are my gifts, and I’m going to put them out there in the world. And, if we all do that, I think there’s going to be so much more creativity, there’s going to be so much more beauty, there’s going to be so much more love, so much more energy, than us all doing stuff we hate, things we don’t like, and dealing with the crap of a life that we’re just stuck living.

If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten:

We’re constantly just doing the same things, day after day after day, and yet we’re expecting something different or great or amazing to happen. It just doesn’t work out that way.
