The true alchemy of Strive is that it combines, great storytelling, great anecdotes, and some pretty profound insights. No question Scott Amyx’s key takeaway is to get comfortable being uncomfortable… or perhaps find yourself a different journey.

Why Strive is important for future business owners?
Popular beliefs about success are profoundly wrong. Success is not merely a matter of being born in the right place at the right time to the right family. It involves much more than hard work, money, practice, or even intellect. History is littered with people—those with high IQ, talent, money, power, and fame—who squandered every advantage and ended badly.
“There is, however, a way to reach your goals, and I am a living proof. I have found a way to guide my life in a positive direction, realizing success I never thought possible. And it doesn’t require 10,000 hours, being born into the right family, or being as brilliant as Albert Einstein or Marilyn vos Savant. It’s a little secret I call Strive,” says Amyx. It’s all about pursuing personal change that’s uncomfortable.
