There is suffering happening all over the world. We all can do something.
Children can be a great example.
When you see a kid give up what little allowance they have to help someone else or set up a lemonade stand, you realize that what you’re able to give is enough.
We can’t just turn a blind eye.
For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Scott Harrison where he talked about living a life of giving.
Scott Harrison was working as a nightclub promoter in New York when he became “morally bankrupt.” He sold all of his belongings and set sail to Africa in an effort to redeem himself. He returned to New York with one goal: to provide clean water to everyone on earth.
Twelve years later, he’s raised over 320 million dollars and provided water to people in 26 countries with his nonprofit charity: water.
He may not be driving a fancy car or going on huge vacations, but he is ending suffering for hundreds of people a day. For him, that means so much more.

Take Your Business to a New Level with the Shark Tank Masters
What makes one business succeed and another fail?
The most important element is the entrepreneur.
If you watch the show Shark Tank, you know that people get investments from sharks just by being a passionate salesperson.
It’s about going all in.
So how can we ensure that what we put our time and money into will be unstoppable? We have to learn from the people who are at the top of their game.
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I’ve combined great advice from past conversations with five Shark Tank masters: Barbara Corcoran, Matt Higgins, Daymond John, Sara Blakely, and Kevin Harrington.
How to Live a Long Life with Dr. Steven Gundry
How many fad diets have you tried?
There’s a reason that they don’t work.
Health and diet are not one-size-fits-all. We all have a special set of genes that tell us what foods we need.
But it’s more than your genes.
Doctor’s will ask you if you have a history of a disease in your family. That’s because you not only share the same genetic make-up, you probably eat the same way.
It’s a combination of the two that will determine your health.
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the secret to longevity with one of the world’s top health experts: Dr. Steven Gundry.
Believe in Your Value
We all can struggle with taking money in return for our services.
It’s hard to ask for what you need.
My father sold life insurance. He taught me a lot about not being ashamed of selling something that adds value to another person’s life.
That’s why, for this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with my brother Christian Howes about how artists can set themselves up for financial success.
It’s all about knowing your worth.
If you are making other people’s lives better or easier, you should be comfortable putting yourself out there as a business.
Learn how to believe in your value by using the power of selling in Episode 771.
The Power of Digital Detox with Cal Newport
Very few of us have the courage to be alone.
When we are quiet and don’t distract ourselves, we have to face hard questions.
It can be scary.
Instead, we reach for our phones. We might be trying to fill a void, or we might just be addicted.
Technology is a lot like processed food. We want more and more, but we’ll never be satisfied.
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about focus with someone who has famously never owned a social media account: Cal Newport.
