The Gap & The Gain with Dr. Benjamin Hardy

The Gap & The Gain with Dr. Benjamin Hardy

Organizational psychologist Dr. Benjamin Hardy is on the podcast this week to discuss his upcoming book, The Gap and The Gain: The High Achievers' Guide to Happiness, Confidence, and Success, that he's co-authored with Dan Sullivan, the founder of Strategic Coach and world's #1 entrepreneurial coach. In The Gap and The Gain, Ben and Dan explain why most entrepreneurs and highly ambitious people are unhappy—and how to solve it.

In this episode, Nick and Ben discuss the concept of The Gap and The Gain, which is a system for measuring progress. The reality is that most entrepreneurs or highly ambitious people have made plenty of progress in their lives, but they're unhappy because they're measuring wrong. They're living in "The Gap", and a simple mindset shift can easily transition them into "The Gain", where they feel good about themselves and their business, and they're grateful for the progress they've made—even when times are tough.
