Gene Hammett: The Trap of Success and More – TPS407


Gene Hammett has been an entrepreneurial leader for over 20 years. He works with leaders to help them have the organizations they really want. On his podcast, Growth Think Tank, he has interviewed hundreds of leaders and best-selling authors with the goal of helping other business leaders create new strategies for growth.


Gene tells the story of how he grew a big business then got complacent and ended up losing it all.
He had a dream of coaching entrepreneurs and the loss of his business, which was very difficult, led him to follow his dream.
The hard thing was learning to forgive himself
Gene explains what he means by the Trap of Success, which is the title of his book.
Entrepreneurs have to create their own world.
In his book, Gene talks about how it’s necessary to change your identity and he shares a personal transformation he went through.
Gene learned to focus and explains how he applies focus to his work.
If you can channel your energy into becoming who you want to be, you’ll make more progress.
Part 1: Start with what you want, not what you don’t want. Part 2: Why do you want it? Part 3: Who would you have to be to have the success you want? Part 4: What is your identity in that place?
We talk about learning to feel what you want to feel when you reach your goal.
You don’t achieve your goals, you receive your goals.
Gene uses visualizations which allow him to imagine how he will feel when he reaches his goals.
