Meet Kent Julian Kent Julian is a lot of things... family man, champion swim coach, Certified Professional Speaker, fish taco lover, and proud bald guy. Yet, this hasn’t always been the case. Kent started out as an at-risk child with severe learning challenges and SAT scores so low that he had to take Development Studies just to get into college—on probation. From these humble beginnings, Kent went on to become the Executive Director of a national youth association in order to help teenagers just like him. Then, after 20 years in non-profit work, he did something crazy... he launched two successful businesses. Along the way, Kent realized that the successes he experienced were never “his successes.” Each accomplishment came about because of the teams he was privileged to lead. Whether working with millennial students, coaching championship swim teams, or leading his own businesses, success was the result of committed, engaged teams. Now, with his expertise in leadership and employee engagement, he is privileged to speak, write, and consult leaders and teams all over the country on what it takes to create what he calls “DREAM-to-DO” culture. You can find his work online in places like Entrepreneur.com, Success.com, GoodMenProject.com and more. To find out more, visit KentJulian.com.

LIAM 320 – Success Principle: E+R=O with Kent Julian
Life Is A Marathon
Perhaps the most important success principle that I have learned and applied to my life is the formula E+R=O. I actually learned this principle from Jack Canfield in his book, The Success Principles. Most people, myself included, live with an E=O mindset, which means the events (the things that happen to us) determine our outcomes. If we are happy, it is because good things are happening. If we are sad, angry, lonely, or broke, it is because of events that have caused us to feel that way. This simply isn't true. The truth is it is how we respond to those events that determine our outcomes--how we feel or what quality of life we live. My good friend, Kent Julian, and I had a wonderful conversation about this very topic.
