Welcome back to The Serial CEO! No matter who we are, no matter what we do, if we’re going in the right direction in a self-directed life, hard times are in our future. Today, we’re going to talk about prevailing in those hard times, showing a strength of character in adversity and having the elite mentality of operating from a place of winning.


  • Fight for your ‘Why’. If you decide that you are going to become elite, you have to fight for it.

  • Decide who you’re going to be ‘right now’. It doesn’t matter who you were in the past or who you think you will be in the future, the only thing that you have complete and total control over is who you’re going to be ‘right now’ before you make your next decision.

  • Operate from a stance that everything is going to come out fine. Ultimately, we are all capable of solving any problem that comes to us.

  • Prevail in your battles! If you’re an elite individual, it’s mandatory; you can’t lose.

  • Be ‘the one’! Step into your greatness! Show the world who you are through the actions that you do on a daily basis.

  • Test yourself! Know what you’re made of in the hardest of times and be proud of the way that you’re able to show your character in those moments.

“Life with a ‘why’ is hard because life is always going to make you fight for your ‘why.’”[01:33]

“Difficulty is a time to show character.” [02:24]

“Operate from a stance of knowing that everything is going to come out fine.” [04:00]

“You must be strongest during the beginning.” [06:15]


We all have hard times coming. Be resolute! Be elite about it! Boss up and deal with your decisions with the fullness of who you are!
