“When I have an alignment of my mindset of my head, if my heart is open and my hands are taking action, it unleashes my potential.” Joe Niego

The pathway to success is never straightforward – there are always bumps and bruises along the way. In this episode, recorded live at The Peak Experience, Joe Niego teaches how you can overcome obstacles, unleash your potential and skip down the road to true success, just like the characters in “The Wizard of Oz.” Topics discussed include the three reasons people trip up, the powerful affirmations you can use to help you succeed and why you should constantly try to take a position of humility as you learn, interact and assess your mistakes.



  • The difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset.
  • How to keep an open heart on the road to success.
  • How to step outside your comfort zone and be courageous.
