This episode is not meant to give you more content, it’s meant to help you make real change in your life. Take some time, listen, and take action with what you learn..

What keeps you from taking action on your number one priority in life?


Craig Ballantyne says that nothing has to keep you from accomplishing the most important things in your life. You can make it happen one small step at a time. The way he suggests you do it is by getting up 15 minutes earlier each morning so you can work on that one thing. Think about it. The house is quiet. Nobody to bother you. Your attention can be focused on that one thing.

And when you do that morning after morning, week after week, you begin to make progress. It’s a sure fire way to accomplish the most important thing in your life. And it’s simple.

That’s just one strategy for making your life a masterpiece that Craig Ballantyne shares on this episode of Growth to Freedom. Be sure you listen, but more importantly, be sure you take action on what you learn. You don’t need more content, you need more application.
