Brofessional Development: “That Which You Don’t Hate, You’ll Eventually Tolerate.”
In this episode, special co-host Corey Boxx joins us to shoot the breeze on a whole host of subjects. Corey is the Vice President Of Business Development at Drive Social Media which helps businesses of every kind grow through measurable and scalable ROI-focused advertising.
We do a deep dive on a selection of quotes by a variety of well-known figures, including Ed Mylett, Helen Keller, and Jim Rohn, among others. We also get into a bunch of other topics, from business to credit card debt all the way to getting yourself organized.
Listen in as we share the famous sayings that immediately come to mind when we think of the quote, “That which you don’t hate, you’ll eventually tolerate.” We then give our thoughts on how to apply this quote in the context of personal and professional development.
Finally, we talk about “should”s in our lives that, because of constant neglect, eventually turned into “must”s; why work-life balance is BS; and our tips for pushing past excuses and getting over the pain threshold toward change.

- Anything that’s not moving you forward is ultimately an enemy to your progress and growth.
- Complacency is at odds with progress. […] You’ve almost got to get radical with how you view yourself. Either I’m moving forward or I’m going backwards.
- You reward your dog when he does something good. So, if you accomplish your goal, reward yourself. Have something to work for, as big or as little as you want it to be, and then you set the next goal.
- Work-life balance is an illusion. Most people work just enough to be miserable.
- Work is just part of life. Finding rhythm with it and finding purpose in it allows me to enjoy life more.
- Once you find that one thing, put yourself in a room where you are the most out-of-shape; you are the brokest; you are the dumbest. You will naturally be like, “I’ve got to level up.” The cheat code is that, the quickest path there is being around people that know the way.
