The Tactical Advantage for a Successful You with Tony Whatley (SPECIAL EPISODE!!!)

What you can achieve in life depends on who you are and your willingness to walk the hard path. And in order to win the battle, you have to be that person who has the heart, not of a quitter, but that of a winner! 


This week, The Daniel Gomez Inspires Show brings to you a special episode with a special guest, Tony Whatley- the man behind 365 Driven and bestselling author of SideHustle Millionaire. This book is more than a book of wisdom, but an actual, genuine story- Tony’s story. In this episode, Tony relates his own share of fears, challenges, and criticisms received from other people. More importantly, Tony reveals how he found the courage to fight for his thoughts, how he ignites his drive even if he finds himself not liking what he does (at times), the importance of being you and not bargaining yourself for what you can become, and finally, how you can keep yourself motivated to continue reaching out for a higher level of success. 


Become a free-thinker. Quit trying to dilute yourself with what others say about you. Because at the end of the day, your success and the value you can give to others is what will define you. Like Tony says, “Your strategic advantage lies in knowing that other people will quit, but NOT YOU!” 

"Even motivational speakers need motivation. What motivates them?... Successful people execute. They are results-driven. They are not looking for motivation, they look for results. And the results are gritty, grimy, and dirty. And you have to get your hands muddy sometimes." -Tony Whatley
