Future Self with Pete Cohen

May 29, 2022

“Big ideas come from forward-thinking people who challenge the norm, think outside the box, and invent the world they see inside rather than submitting to the limitations of current dilemmas.”  - T.D. Jakes 

In this podcast, we discuss being an Outlier. An Outlier is a person or thing situated away from or detached from the main body or system. It’s a person or thing differing from all other members of a particular group or set.

What is an outlier? Is it good to be one? What would the world be like if there was no one willing to get out of the norm and persevere to be different? Should you be an outlier? Do you have the courage to be different? How great would you be if you decided to pursue that few or even that for which no one else was striving? 

These are questions that I would like you to ponder as you listen to this podcast. Being an outlier, being someone different, or doing something that others have given up on is no mean feat, but your achievement can be the answer to what most people have been searching for and waiting for. It could be the legacy you leave on this earth.


✅ People with a burning desire to help others do not accept what it is; they look outside the box and do groundbreaking work.

✅ Changing the way we think about things allows us to change things. 

✅ Fears and disasters can be a blessing and the greatest turning point in our lives as they can push us away from where we are and lead us to think exceptionally and look for solutions. 

✅ To be an outlier you must:

  • Define your goal
  • Believe in yourself and believe that there is a solution
  • Recognize there is more to what is currently there
  • Aspire to be wiser through the power of possibility and prospection
  • Have a growth mindset by not accepting what is nor caring about what you feel; focus on what you do. Do not be trapped in the tyranny of now, as Carol Dweck says.
  • Have the burning desire to act and never give up.
  • Do not wait for disasters to happen to you before you act.
