Episode 21: Laura DiBenedetto - How To Break Old Habits And Build Your Dreams

Gold Nuggets in this Episode:

  • We are all misled about what the real definition of success and happiness is.

    The truly happy and successful people are those who are content with how much they have. They’re great leaders, and they inspire others.
  • Many people go through life, get to the finish line, and realize it’s the wrong finish line – that everything they worked toward, and thought they wanted or needed in their lives, is not what they really wanted or needed.
  • Laura gives some advice to young entrepreneurs, and she briefly describes the six habits from her book. Most, if not all, our listeners will relate to at least one of the six habits.

    “I can tell you what the 6 habits are, but knowing something and applying the wisdom of it are two very different things.”
  • We don’t truly admire people for their toys; it’s because of who they are. We need to understand that it’s not about the stuff, the achievements, or the wallet size - it’s their ability to be the master of their habits, themselves, and their lives.
  • “We are the story we tell ourselves.”
  • Laura’s parents taught her tenacity. “If you fall on your face - too bad. Wipe the dirt off your face, get up, and keep going.” Her dad also taught her to swear like a trucker.
  • Laura disagrees that greed and money are the root of all evil. She says the root of all the “evil” that we see in the world is insecurity.
  • “There’s only one thing you can control in your life - your own effort.” – Mark Cuban
  • “You are capable of creating the life you want. It begins within. Everything you’re looking for is not in the fancy car, and not in what you’ve been taught it is. You deserve to find it, and you’re capable of finding it. It won’t be easy, but this will be the noblest work you ever do that will unlock everything you ever wanted.”
  • Steve congratulates Laura for making Juliet speechless. There’s recorded evidence of it, too.
  • “Your current habits are what got you to where you are now. If you want more, or better, you have to be better first.” – Laura DiBenedetto


Our guest is Laura DiBenedetto, founder of Vision Advertising, bestselling author, TEDx speaker, blogger, and business and lifestyle educator. After retiring at the age of 37, she set out to research and attain genuine happiness. This resulted in her first book, “The Six Habits”, written to empower other people to master their habits and find happiness.
