This week on the show, John Henderson joins me to talk about the impact of positive comment in somebody's life, his story about being in jail, and his book, SWAY.
I also shared about committing to get up at 4 a.m. everyday for all of September.
John and I discuss:
Did poorly in school because he didn't fit and think in the structured manner the school wanted
Turning his life around and realising that he is the result of the choices he has made
How everybody in jail thinks they are innocent while successful people he knows think they are guilty
How kids are taught to be generalists when the world rewards specialists
The problem is with the way you are measuring what is and isn't intelligence
How one positive comment can change somebody’s whole life
Finding who to be loyal to and who not to be loyal to is important
Difference made by caring and empathy versus strict humiliation and discipline
John's story of being in jail under "Americas toughest sheriff"
Success doesn't happen without the work
Influence is anytime somebody considers another person or an activity prior to making decision
About his new book SWAY: The Link Between Autism and Influence
