Book Brief – The Gap and The Gain

Listen on

Episode notes

In this episode, I'm sharing my thoughts on the book "The Gap and The Gain" by Dan Sullivan and Dr. Benjamin Hardy. I explore the nuances of measuring success, exploring the shift from chasing external validations to finding internal satisfaction. Drawing parallels with coaching principles and Fearless Living®, I share insights into the impact of acknowledging our growth and reframing expectations. 

I also delve into the book's emphasis on measuring backward (the GAIN) versus forward (the GAP) and encourage you to redefine success as being an inside job that’s connected to your emotions.

What You’ll Learn:

- How measuring against a future ideal or comparing yourself with others creates a sense of being in the GAP.

- How the GAIN is about measuring backward, acknowledging past achievements, and turning every experience into a lesson

- Why acknowledging your progress and giving yourself credit for even the smallest steps is crucial for fostering a positive mindset

- How I connect the book’s concepts with principles of Fearless Living
