Finding Certainty in Uncertain Times with Scott Gass

“How can you become bigger?” – Scott Gass

I had a wonderful time talking with Scott Gass @scottgass. He is an international speaker and trainer on peak performance. He helps individuals and businesses break through their inner psychological blocks and get to the next level.

He was one of Tony Robbins top speakers and trainers for seven years and recently lived in Asia for the last two years working with businesses there. He traveled to 20 countries and worked with business owners in Asia without knowing the language.

Here are some of the key takeaways from our time together:


You need tools to master your state

The way you feel = your state

Health is your foundation

Put good food, thoughts, words (read) in your mind and body every day

Question Scott asks himself, “How can I become bigger?”

It’s not what you do. It’s who you become.

How can you improve yourself – mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually?

Tools/Rituals Scott uses:

  • Exercise
  • Prayer
  • Mindfulness (meditation)
  • Reading
  • Breathwork
  • Fasting

Stand out instead of trying to fit in

Be in an ENERGY RICH state

Heighten the emotion – clear intention – raise the vibration

Rejuvenate, reset and realign with fasting:

  • Get awareness around food
  • Most food we eat is based on our emotions
  • Diminish cravings for unhealthy foods
  • Know your why 
  • Reset intestinal stem cells in your gut


Functional, compound movements – Multi-joint movements

More volume over time vs. heavy weights

Goal is not to be sore – can do more volume during the week

Scott’s current workout:

  • 3 sets of pull ups
  • 4 sets of push ups
  • 3-4 sets of squats
  • Power cleans
  • Turkish get ups


80/20 rule – 80% healthy, clean / 20% go nuts – enjoy life, be flexible

Front load – eat healthy meals early to build momentum through day

Scott’s eating is a combination of:

  • Intermittent fasting
  • Gluten free
  • Vegetarian / Vegan

Experiment and try new things

Switch it up so your body doesn’t get used to the same thing


You can only control what you can control

Set up habits and rituals to create certainty especially when traveling

Do what fills you up and gives you momentum

  • Plan your day night before
  • Knock out big thing in morning
  • Spend time with family

To do something we’ve never achieved we have to become a different person

Most people grow in times of uncertainty 

No matter where you go you take your habits with you

Routine gives you certainty in uncertain times

You got your way by getting in the way = SHOW UP

We get to create/ reinforce our habits every day

We create our habits and over time our habits create us

“Be a slave to your habits” – Og Mandino

Three ways to create change 

  1. Total immersion – go to an event
  2. Accountability – group dynamics / mastermind group
  3. Spaced repetition – do the little things over and over and over
