788: Jason Drees – How to Do the Impossible

I have always believed in the integration of mindset, purpose, and doing all the “inner work” as a main aspect of our self-employed business lives. I have always turned to personal development first in order to more effectively develop my business. Today’s episode is all about the importance of mindset…and about how the right mindset can help us to do the (seemingly) impossible. In my conversation with Jason Drees, we talk about strategy differences needed for “big” vs. “small” goals, how to adjust expectations, and the criticality of reframing your mindset.

Jason Drees is a husband, father of four boys, entrepreneur, author of Do the Impossible, speaker, and performance coach based in Austin, Texas. With over 10,000 hours of coaching sessions delivered in his career, Jason has an uncanny ability to rewire the mindsets of those he works with to achieve unprecedented results. Jason’s ever-expanding understanding of the power of mindset continues to push his clients to unlock their full potential and experience extraordinary growth in all areas of their lives.
