In this edition of 'Chat With Titans', Nick talks to David Meltzer, the Co-founder of Sports 1 Marketing and former CEO of the renowned Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment agency, which was the inspiration for the movie Jerry Maguire.
David joins the show to talk about his mission in life - to empower over a billion people to be happy - and the incredible journey of his life so far.
People use money to buy their way into happiness, sometimes by purchasing things they don't even need. Ironically, they soon discover that all the money in the world can't get you there.
The mindset that takes up upwards is the one that sees pain as an opportunity for growth and learning.
A true friend is one that tells us "no". We need to be challenged by those who care about us. Without this, we cannot hope to be the best version of ourselves.
The world is not filled with people out to stop you from achieving your goals. We need to see others as fellow travellers on life's road, and not as enemies to be defeated.
'My journey is from a world of not enough'
'Everything happens for a reason'
'Pain is an indicator of a lesson to learn'
'You can lie to me, but don't lie to yourself'
