Why You Should Burn Your Boats

Matt Higgins is CEO and co-founder of RSE Ventures, a venture capital firm; vice-chairman of the Miami Dolphins, an executive with the New York Jets; and a guest investor on the Shark Tank series.

Plus, Matt teaches a business course at The Harvard Business School. And Matt Higgins has done all this after being a high school dropout!

That’s right. Matt dropped out of high school; earned a G.E.D. and then put himself through college and law school by attending classes at night.

In his powerful new book, Burn the Boats: Toss Plan B Overboard And Unleash Your Full Potential, Matt shares his strategic thoughts on success.

During this interview for my Willie Jolley Wealthy Ways radio show on Sirius XM, Matt Higgins shares his success philosophy, summarized in these 8 statements:

  1. When you have a Plan B, you automatically don’t give all your effort to Plan A. And as a result, you do not succeed as much as you could.

  2. Any time you plan for failure, you set yourself up to fail even more.

  3. When you give yourself the option to lose, you do not win as regularly as you could.

  4. When you eliminate any “outs,” you’ll keep fighting until you win.

  5. To win big, you must have an “ALL-IN” mindset.

  6. The real joy in living is in the striving, the fighting and when you overcome – the WIN.

  7. Ignore the naysayers. Only listen to the “Yay-sayers!”

  8. Never let anyone "put you in a box." Don’t accept a period where you were meant to have a comma. Your story continues because YOU decide it will.
