Overcoming Obstacles With Razor Sharp Focus

Yesterday, on Smashing The Plateau, Scott Smith discussed how finding focus can make you overcome obstacles and challenges in life and in business.

Below are some of his biggest influences:

1) Zig Ziglar and Brian Tracy I was big into them.

They were early influences for me.

2) Tony Robbins

He probably had the biggest impact on me in terms of being a direct influence. He was a messenger that worked for me, and because of what he was doing, I stepped into the world of what I’m doing now.

3) My Mom, Elizabeth

She is a big advisor for me. She’s what I call the most positive/negative person I’ve ever known. She really sees things in a crazy way but it always comes back around to wise advice.

4) My wife, Joi, my late wife, Sheryl, and my daughter, Carlyn

I am grateful to the women in my life. I take a lot of advice from them, and I lean on them to ground me and keep me in my place.
