“Discipline Equals Freedom” with Joe Templin
“It is that drive for personal excellence, that actually helps you create a life of fulfillment, which ultimately ends up being longer, stronger, and more fulfilling.” - Joe Templin
In today’s episode, I welcome Joe Templin in to the podcast. Joe is an author of a book called ‘Everyday Excellence: A daily guide to growing.’ Reformed physicist, financial planner, startup founder and autodidactic polymath best described as a Swiss Army Knife, Joe Templin has invested the past two and a half plus decades to helping others reach their financial potential as a planner, trainer, mentor and creator.
In today’s episode, Joe talks about the freedom that discipline brings, especially in personal finance.
- I started college at 13 and studied communication and went to Rensselaer Polytechnic and became a physicist and worked for government.
- I am financial planner, a martial artist, and also studied sales psychology and performance psychology which led me into doing more training and development work.
- I have drifted even further into behavioral economics, and authored multiple books which are very much reflective of the multiple components to knowledge that you need to assemble to properly do financial planning.
- It is that drive for personal excellence, that actually helps you create a life of fulfillment, which ultimately ends up being longer, stronger, and more fulfilling. When we talk about financial planning, it's not cookie cutter, and this is because clients are all very different individuals.
- In personal finance, discipline equals freedom.
- We live in a disposable society in a lot of ways and things have planned obsolescence.
- Having the capability of taking the time to allow things to develop makes people more successful.
- If you choose what feels good in the moment, it creates a downward trajectory overall, and ultimately makes things harder.
- If you choose what is more difficult in the moment, it leads to a better outcome in the long run.
- It comes down to the easy choice or the right choice and just consistently trying to make the more difficult decision in order to increase your excellence factor across all components of your life.
- EASY NOW, HARD LATER vs. HARD NOW, EASY LATER choose hard now...always!
