Jan 9, 2017 | 0 comments

Time is your most valuable asset. Are you wasting it? Chris Heller, CEO of Keller-Williams, rose to the top through discipline – a muscle that you need to develop to make the most out of your time. You develop discipline by creating better habits. Chris created habits that improved his mindset and maintained his health.

Mindset is critical for overcoming fear and taking action. One of the most important mindset shifts that Chris made as part of KW was learning to succeed through others. When you have the right people, the fear of losing control transforms into relief.  

Even with support, you can’t achieve everything you want to accomplish in your life and your business if you’re health isn’t close to 100%. You can’t let your health fall through the cracks when you are focusing on your business. If you want to achieve more, while working less, then you need the right habits to develop your discipline muscle. Chris Heller is here to show you how.
