  • 4 Steps To Create Mini-Habits And Reach Your Goals

    Most people fail at setting new good habits for their lives because they use the wrong system. “Go big, or go home” is a recipe for that failure. Goal setting and habit formation are essential strategies for growth that move you closer to the life you want to live. If you’re not actively setting goals and forming new habits to push you further along on a consistent basis, you will become complacent, stagnant, and ultimately miserable. Creating new habits is easier when you start small. Setting up mini-habits that build into full habits and celebrating those achievements will set you up for consistent success and faster progress towards your goals.

    Mixed Martial Artist and UFC TUF Champion

    In fighting and in life, focus is what separates winners from losers. Focus is what helped me win the UFC TUF Championship. Any successful mixed martial artist will tell you that seeing yourself as a champion is the first step to becoming a champion. You have to start with a vision. You have to start at the end. That’s why I love Isaiah's book, because it tells you to start at the end and work backwards. Black Hole Focus is an amazing read because it helps people create a vision for their lives and then it shows them how to achieve their vision. Isaiah makes you see yourself at the top of the podium and then it gives you a detailed training plan to help you get there.   Read More

    Author of Four New York Times Bestselling Books; Editor at Large, Esquire Magazine

    Isaiah Hankel has written an absurdly motivating book. In fact, it’s so motivational, I was constantly tempted to put the book down and start getting things done using Hankel’s strategies. It was put-downable in the best possible way. But I always came back for more of Isaiah Hankel’s wisdom—and the wisdom he distills from Einstein, Ben Franklin and even The Shawshank Redemption.     Read More
