"You Can Retire Inspired!" with Chris Hogan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">When you hear the word <em>retirement</em>, you probably don't imagine yourself scrambling to pay your bills in your golden years. But for too many Americans, that's the fate that awaits unless they take steps now to plan for the future. Whether you’re twenty-five and starting your first job or fifty-five and watching the career clock start to wind down, today is the day to get serious about your retirement.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On this episode, Dave recaps episodes 386-389 where Chris Hogan shares some financial and retirement advice from his book, “Retire Inspired: It's Not an Age, It's a Financial Number”</span></p>

"Enemy Number One of Your Retirement" with Chris Hogan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Chris Hogan says, when you start to realize the importance of your financial future, you begin to understand who’s an ally and what’s an enemy. Debt is not an ally. Debt takes away from your income. It demands a payment each and every month. Chris wants us to see debt for what it is, and be smart by intentionally getting rid of debt and keeping it out of your life.</span></p>

"Avoiding retirement obstacles" with Chris Hogan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Chris Hogan talks about how obstacles are not stopping points; rather they are proving grounds. It’s important to acknowledge that the obstacle is there, but you can overcome it if you have a plan on how you are going to defeat it. What are you going to do to overcome those obstacles so you can move forward for yourself and your family?</span></p>

"Retirement isn't an age, it's a number" with Chris Hogan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Chris Hogan wants us to understand one key fact: retirement has nothing to do with your age, it has everything to do with a financial number. So it’s not about 65, 62, 70, it’s more about how much money we’re going to need to be able to live the lifestyle we want to live in the future.</span></p>

"Retirement starts with the dream" with Chris Hogan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Chris Hogan says it’s important for all of us to understand the power of our dreams. We all have things we want to do, and it’s important to tap into them because dreams are a better motivator than fear. Fear will motivate you for a little while, but it doesn’t last. Why? Because it’s a negative drag on us. But our dreams are an encouraging kind of motivation, so we’re willing to strive and sacrifice for them because we know deep inside what we want to do.</span></p>

"Build Your Own Social Wealth" with Jason Treu
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Have you ever admired those successful, confident, motivated, and charismatic people who seem to have it all? They've climbed the corporate ladder quickly or started a great business. Their love life is amazing and they have fantastic friends. They've made all the right connections. They've mastered networking and how to build relationships. On this episode, Dave recaps episodes 381-384 where Jason Treu shares practical lessons from his book, “Social Wealth: How to Build Extraordinary Relationships By Transforming the Way We Live, Love, Lead and Network”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"The Right Place at the Right Time" with Jason Treu
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Jason Treu talks about how going to the right places is the key to building the relationships you want, both personally and professionally. Use Google and Facebook or Meetup.com to find events in your local community. You can also volunteer to help work the event you are going to attend. Keep asking people where they’re going and what they’re doing, because then you can build a list for yourself.</span></p>

"How to Connect Emotionally With Others" with Jason Treu
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Jason Treu says you can build relationships much faster than you think if you connect with people emotionally. People have had tons of bad interactions, and typically those interactions have consisted of the same old boring questions. If you meet someone in a professional setting people always ask you, “What do you do?” and it’s boring. Instead, ask people about what they love and what they are emotionally connected to, because everyone is emotional. Lead with emotional questions because when you get down to what someone cares about, you get to know them a lot better than you normally would.</span></p>

"Fear is a Compass" with Jason Treu
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Jason Treu says the fear of failure, rejection, and uncertainty are often significant problems for entrepreneurs, especially when we’re treading into new territory. Successful entrepreneurs fall on their face at least once, often many times, when doing anything new. But when we embrace the fear and let it guide us, fear can be the compass that gets us to our destination.</span></p>

"It Really IS Who You Know" with Jason Treu
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Jason Treu says understanding that connection is why we’re here, and belonging is in our DNA. We all need to focus on how do we build extraordinary relationships both in our professional and personal lives. You can’t get there by yourself. We all need people to help us, from marketing to customers, to being an advocate for you and your business. Plus, we all want to create profound and lasting connections with people in our lives. On today’s show, Jason will teach us how to go about the process of building extraordinary relationships.</span></p>

"Go for No" with Andrea Waltz
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Your success might come down to a simple word…NO. Do you hear it enough? Do you realize the number of times you hear NO is directly related to how many times you hear YES? On today’s Dave is joined by author Andrea Waltz as we recap our conversations based on her book, “Go for No. Yes is the Destination, No is How You Get There.”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Don’t Let “NO” Get You Down" with Andrea Waltz
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Andrea Waltz talks about staying persistent in embracing and even pursuing “no.” Successful people fail eagerly while failures avoid failing. There seems to be a stigma about failure that makes us feel bad and even want to quit. We think, “I’m probably going to fail, so why even try?” That attitude holds us back from some amazing opportunities because being willing to fail is what creates the chance for success.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Setting Your No Goal" with Andrea Waltz
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Andrea Waltz encourages us to track our failure rate. She wants us to be aware of how many times we get a “no,” and even set goals and celebrate how many times we will hear “no.” Tracking your frequency of “no” gives you an awareness of how you are doing and enables you to make adjustments in your message. And celebrating them is a way to make it fun. Remember, the more times you hear “no,” the more times you’ll hear “yes.”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Intentionally Get a NO" with Andrea Waltz
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Andrea Waltz encourages us to intentionally increase our failure rate, go out and hear “no” more often. When we overcome our fear of hearing “no,” things happen, and opportunities fall into our lap that might never have happened otherwise. Establishing “no goals” tends to drive our activity up, which creates more opportunities for us to hear a “yes.”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Changing Your Definition of Failure" with Andrea Waltz
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Andrea Waltz encourages us to give ourselves permission to fail. When you change your mental model of how you view failure, seeing it as a stepping stone between you and success, it changes what is possible. Usually, we equate hearing the word “no” with a failure, so it’s about seeing the word “no” as a space between you and the “yes.” Instead of giving up when you hear “no,” just increase your “no’s,” and when you do the “yes’” will come.</span></p>

"Mind Hacking" with Sir John Hargrave
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Your brain is like a computer. It’s like the central processing unit for your body, mind, emotions…everything you are and do. And just like a computer, sometimes we need to change the programming to get the results we’re looking for. On today’s show, Dave recaps episodes 371-374 where Sir John Hargrave shares proven hacks that can help you change the way you think and make you more productive, positive, and happier.</span></p>

"Create a Dynamic Future" with Sir John Hargrave
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Sir John Hargrave walks us through the process of setting and achieving compelling goals. It’s about imagining what you want to do with your life. Think about how important it is to figure out for yourself where you want to end up. It’s amazing how little time we all spend doing that. Instead, we just float wherever the tides of life take us. But when you start to become the master of your ship there’s no limit to what you can do.</span></p>

"Crank Up Your Confidence" with Sir John Hargrave
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Sir John Hargrave says we have what he calls “loops,” or ongoing, habitual messages we tell ourselves. Usually, they’re just below the level of conscious awareness, embedded in our operating system. He shares a trick to help us develop more awareness of those loops, helping us find the ones that are preventing us from getting where we want to go. We can then reprogram those loops with their more positive alternative.</span></p>

"Crack Down on Distractions" with Sir John Hargrave
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">There’s no end to the digital distractions that surround us. And research shows that the more distracted you are and the more you try to multitask, the less you get done. If you want to be effective and live up to your full potential, get rid of those distractions. Turn it all off and you’ll be more focused and happier.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Develop Jedi Focus" with Sir John Hargrave
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Studies show that meditation makes you healthier, makes your relationships better, and makes you calmer and more focused. Sir John Hargrave teaches a concentration hack to strengthen that “top-down” attention to make ourselves better able to stay focused on the things we want, like our tasks at work. It also helps us resist those “bottom-up” interruptions like random thoughts and text messages that jump out at us constantly.</span></p>

"Leading with Intention" with Dr. Mindy Hall
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dave shares his thoughts based on his conversation this week with Dr. Mindy Hall. Leadership doesn’t happen by accident; it happens because you take the time to know who you are and how you want to lead. Others won’t just “get it,” you have to present who you are and lead with intention.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Shaping a Culture or Letting Culture Shape You" with Dr. Mindy Hall
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dr. Mindy Hall talks about how an organization’s culture is one of the most powerful levers leaders have for impacting performance. Culture is the social energy built over time that can move people to act or impede them from acting. An organization’s culture is never neutral; it will develop by design or default. The question for leaders then is whether they will actively shape their organization’s culture, or allow themselves to be shaped by it. Culture is not a program that gets implemented; it is built through everyday actions and messaging.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Managing the Story of You" with Dr. Mindy Hall
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dr. Mindy Hall talks about what we all know, that perception is reality. Leaders often say, “I’ll let my hard work speak for itself.” That’s a nice sentiment, but the reality is that hard work often doesn’t speak for itself (or at least it doesn’t tell the whole story). You have to speak for your hard work. Hard work can never stand alone as the indicator of ability; to think otherwise is naïve and self-defeating. You must actively shape the perception others have of you and your abilities, not in a self-aggrandizing way, but in a way that does not leave the story of you to be shaped by others.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Choose Your Impact" with Dr. Mindy Hall
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dr. Mindy Hall talks about how every interaction is an opportunity. Every action has an impact. Every moment is a choice. Are you choosing the impact you want to have? Often, leaders are rushing from meeting to meeting with no real sense of what they’re walking into or the contribution they want to make. This leaves both the outcomes of the meeting and their own performance to chance. They miss the opportunity to lead from a conscious state and intentionally shape how others perceive them as a leader.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Notice Yourself" with Dr. Mindy Hall
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dr. Mindy Hall says from experience that nearly 80 percent of leaders do not lead intentionally. They are bright, capable leaders that operate out of intuition, pattern, and reaction. Some do so with very strong results, but those who make the decision to be more self-aware and intentional achieve higher-level results than those who continue to operate primarily from intuition. Developing this aptitude is possible and begins the moment you look in the mirror and begin the process of understanding how you show up, how you affect a room, and what environment you create. In short: notice yourself.</span></p>

"Dominate Your Day Before Breakfast" with Jeff Sanders
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dave recaps episodes 351-355 and highlights important productivity tips shared by guest Jeff Sanders from his book, “The 5 A.M. Miracle: Dominate Your Day Before Breakfast”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Rewind Your Week" with Jeff Sanders
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Jeff Sanders talks about the importance of reviewing our productivity and schedule each week. You can structure the review however you want. The point is that you feel like you understand what you did and what you are going to do. By reviewing your week you will understand what went wrong, what went right, and how you are going to make the week coming up the best it can be.</span></p>

"Equilibrium Zero" with Jeff Sanders
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author and podcaster Jeff Sanders shows us why it’s important to reach what he calls “equilibrium zero.” That’s a state where you are working from a very clean space. You want to achieve the simplicity of only working on one thing at a time, and that only happens when things are clean and organized. You then get to that state where you can say, “I have processed everything around me so now I can give all of myself to my next task.”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"The IDEAL Morning Routine" with Jeff Sanders
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Jeff Sanders talks about how to structure our morning routine to help us dominate our day. The actual routine begins the night before. Decide what time you want to go to bed to wake up when you want. You can choose whatever focus you want with your early mornings but having a philosophy or a strategy is important because it helps to know what you want your mornings to mean to you. Knowing your morning objective is important so you can then plan the exact habits you need to accomplish your goals.</span></p>

"Forget Annual Goal Setting" with Jeff Sanders
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to plan an entire 12-month period. However, it’s never really effective because most of those goals have been ditched completely by the end of January. By the end of the year, you have forgotten most of the goals you set at the beginning of the year, or you’re scrambling to get them done at the last minute. On this episode, Jeff Sanders gives us an alternative to annual goal setting that is much more effective.</span></p>

"Vision to Reality" with Honoree Corder
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dave recaps episodes 346-349 where guest Honoree Corder shares lessons from her book, “Vision to Reality: How Short Term Massive Action Equals Long Term Maximum Results”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Create an Inspiring Vision" with Honoree Corder
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Honoree Corder gives us the first step to creating a compelling, inspiring vision. Your vision is the less concrete, less defined thing you want. Your vision is the energy and driving purpose behind your goals. When you set your intention, when you have a vision of how you want to feel some day, it can feel a little indefinable. But you still commit to moving in that direction the best you know how. You then identify the first goal you can see based on where you want to go.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Big Hairy Audacious Goals" with Honoree Corder
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Honoree Corder talks about why we need to set big goals. Really big goals. She says you know you’ve set the right big hairy audacious goals when you feel a little nauseous. You’ve got a feeling in the pit of your stomach that says, “I REALLY want that. I have to work hard to make that happen.”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Plan A and ONLY Plan A" with Honoree Corder
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Honoree Corder talks about committing ourselves to Plan A without a backup Plan B. A backup plan offers us another option when Plan A gets tough. But there is some providence that steps in that will help you to find your way when you unrelentingly commit to your goal. You will meet the right people. You will come across the right piece of information. When you trust the fact that you’ve made the right decision for yourself, and you’re moving forward, and you just keep walking. If you are 100 percent committed, then you will get where you want to go.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Short-Term Massive Action" with Honoree Corder
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Honoree Corder talks about how short-term massive action can change our ability to reach our goals. The problem isn’t necessarily that we don’t know what to do, it’s that we want more of what we want RIGHT NOW. So we give up what we want later for what we want right now. We want instant gratification, yet real results don’t happen that way. They happen one day, one choice at a time.</span></p>

"Hit The Mark!" with Erik Fisher
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">We all want to be the best version of ourselves. We want sharper focus and more energy. We want to make the most of our time and productivity. On today’s episode Dave Kirby recaps and shares his thoughts on his conversations with Erik Fisher, based on his book; “Hit The Mark!: Improve Your Focus, Boost Your Energy and Make The Most of Your Time.”</span></p>

"Boost Your Energy TODAY" with Erik Fisher
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author and podcaster Erik Fisher talks about common energy drains, proper energy management, and being attuned to our natural rhythms. Eric shares some simple energy boosters to make you feel better and more productive today.</span></p>

"Learn to Set Boundaries" with Erik Fisher
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author and podcaster Erik Fisher talks about techniques to set boundaries without feeling like a robot. Boundaries can sound hard and restrictive, like a ball and chain. Erik shares that boundary management is really about choice management. To achieve our desired outcome, we must be intentional in making choices that help us produce our best work.</span></p>

"Become a Master of Time" with Erik Fisher
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">There are two types of time: clock time and relative time. Clock time is 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour. It doesn’t change. Relative time changes based on the amount of enjoyment we get. That’s why we say “time flies.” On this episode, author and podcaster Erik Fisher shares strategies to help you make the most of your time. It starts with finding the things that energize us so much that it’s easy to manage our time and be productive.</span></p>

"Sharpen Your Focus" with Erik Fisher
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">We often want to focus on certain changes in our lives, yet we end up somewhere completely different. On today’s episode author and podcaster Erik Fisher talks about focus being “the target.” And just like hitting a target, you must have a clear vision of what it looks like. Today Erik is showing us how to sharpen our focus so we can hit the target every time.</span></p>

"Start with Why" with Simon Sinek
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Everything we want to accomplish in life begins with discovering our own “why.” It’s our burning reason and purpose for what we do. All the great leaders in history began with knowing why, and it’s the answer to that question that will lead us to greatness as well. On this episode, Dave Kirby his conversation with Simon Sinek shared from his book, “Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action.”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Ask For Help" with Simon Sinek
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Bestselling author Simon Sinek says we do not have to know all the answers, and we do not have to pretend we do. And when we are willing to admit we don’t know and ask for help, it’s amazing how many people will want to help us. When we give someone the opportunity to contribute to our lives, that also gives their lives purpose.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Admit What You Don’t Know" with Simon Sinek
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Simon Sinek talks about how most of us know what we do, but we don’t have a purpose, belief, or cause that’s driving that decision. When you have a sense of purpose - when you know why - everything begins to make sense. It’s amazing the clarity we get when we have a sense of why we do what we do.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Ask Questions" with Simon Sinek
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Bestselling author Simon Sinek talks about the power of asking questions. We stop asking as many questions as we should and sometimes we just take things for granted. The great leaders are often like little kids in how they ask questions and consume information. They don’t always agree with everything, but they listen intently to see if there’s anything they can learn. They do less of the talking and more of the asking.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Discover Your Why" with Simon Sinek
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Bestselling author Simon Sinek talks about discovering your own unique why. It’s your sense of purpose, sense of cause, or sense of belief. All the great leaders in the world - whether it’s Steve Jobs or Martin Luther King - had a crystal clear sense of purpose, cause, or belief. They understood their why, and that’s what drew us to them… and inspired us to follow them.</span></p>

"Start Making Meaningful Connections" with Derek Coburn
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Most of us have only experienced the negative type of networking. Standing around at a party handing out business cards to people you don’t know, hoping to find a needle client in the haystack. On this episode, Dave highlights some of the un-networking strategies Derek Coburn shared in episodes 311-314 from his book, “Networking Is Not Working: Stop Collecting Business Cards and Start Making Meaningful Connections.”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Trigger Ongoing Reciprocation" with Derek Coburn
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Derek Coburn shows us how to merge client appreciation with networking and, if done the right way, how it can be very beneficial to you and your business. By making existing clients happy, you increase the likelihood of them staying your clients. And through them you gain opportunities to meet more people than you would have met otherwise.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"How To Build a Valuable Network" with Derek Coburn
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Derek Coburn talks about how to build a valuable network without attending networking events. Derek’s method is to host an event comprised of a community of people who have a pay it forward mindset and genuinely want to add value for one another. After you have added tons of value for these individuals, after you have made really valuable connections, and after you have been the one who brought people together in a meaningful way, they are going to WANT to help you any way they can.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Networking 3.0" with Derek Coburn
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Derek Coburn helps us upgrade our networking efforts to what he calls “Networking 3.0.” Instead of handing out business cards and looking to benefit yourself, Derek teaches a change of mindset constantly places the focus on your existing clients, and people in your network. In Networking 3.0 you are always mindful of and spotting those win-win connections that would benefit them, not you when you are meeting new people at events.</span></p>

"How to Stand apart from your competition" with Derek Coburn
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Derek Coburn talks about how we often look at networking as a means to get new customers. But he says our biggest opportunity is to grow our network to better serve our existing clients. The key is to be mindful in helping your clients expand their horizons to help them grow their business.</span></p>

"Personal Productivity Secrets" with Maura Thomas
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Modern life has given us so many distractions and interruptions that we have a lost our ability to focus and concentrate. The abundance of devices and notifications has robbed us of our attention span. On this episode, Dave Kirby recaps episodes 306-309 with thoughts on his conversations with guest Maura Thomas about her book, “Personal Productivity Secrets: Do what you never thought possible with your time and attention... and regain control of your life.”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Tools are only half of the solution" with Maura Thomas
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Maura Thomas teaches that we need more than just a set of tools to be productive. We also need a workflow management process to understand how to use these tools and how are they going to serve us, rather than adapting to some tool somebody told us was useful.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Stop the mental chatter" with Maura Thomas
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Maura Thomas gives some great advice on controlling the mental chatter in our heads that creates stress and distraction. Most people are not very good at keeping track of all of the details. We write stuff down, but we write it down in various places: a notebook, sticky notes, flagged in email, or on the dry erase board in the office. We end up having all these bits of information swirling around in our heads and scattered in a million different places all at the same time. It’s a system that feels productive, but it isn’t because when it’s time to retrieve or access the specific information we’re in a frenzy trying to figure out where to look.</span></p>

"Take control of your technology" with Maura Thomas
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Maura Thomas talks about how, as a society, technology is there for our convenience, yet we let it interrupt us all the time and don’t control it. We need to control our technologies, so we’re not constantly interrupted, making it impossible to focus.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

"Stop Sabotaging Your Productivity" with Maura Thomas
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Maura Thomas explains that focus is like a muscle; the more you work it, the stronger it becomes. The problem is our typical daily behavior weakens our focus muscle because we’re constantly distracted. And the more constantly distracted we are, the shorter our attention span and ability to focus becomes.</span></p>

“What Does it Take to Change?” with Kerry Patterson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">If you’ve tried and failed to create lasting change in your life, it might be because you have relied primarily on willpower. And willpower will consistently let us down. Instead, Kerry Patterson has made a career of studying the science required to make lasting change. Today Dave Kirby recaps his conversations with Kerry on Episodes 301-304 and shares some thoughts about what he’s learned.</span></p>

“How to Change Anything” with Kerry Patterson

Learn how real people have integrated all of the strategies and tactics of the new science of personal success into an effective change plan, helping them find career success, weight loss, financial fitness, addiction recovery, or relationship renewal.</span></p>

“Overcoming Bad Habits” with Kerry Patterson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kerry Patterson teaches us to be mindful of our friends and the impact they have to either motivate and enable us to do the right thing, or motivate and enable us to do the wrong thing. Likewise, the physical world is acting upon you in ways you don’t even realize. And because we don’t intuitively look to the physical world we miss a great opportunity to create and maintain change.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

“Creating Lasting Change” with Kerry Patterson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">To create lasting change, we must have the motivation to change and also the ability to change. Kerry Patterson warns of what he calls "the willpower trap." It's the trap of thinking willpower alone is enough to create lasting change. At some level, you might succeed in the short term, but over the long run you won’t be able to keep it up. Instead, what we need is a desire to change, combined with a cohesive strategy to apply the proper skills required for long-term success.</span></p>

“Start Saying No” with Joe Calloway
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Joe Calloway talks about what is often the most powerful step we can take in simplifying our lives: learning to let go and start saying "no." As a matter of fact saying “no” is the most important part of taking constructive action. Many people might think the opposite - if you are going to get a lot done you need to say “yes” to everything. But if you say “yes” to everything and put everything in the category of being of super-important, then you’ll not get anything done. You’ll flail around in a hundred different directions. Learn what to say “no” to. It frees you to do the most important things, which are the most satisfying, the most productive, and how you make the greatest contribution.</span></p>

“Simplify Your Purpose” with Joe Calloway
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Joe Calloway talks about the importance of simplifying your purpose or mission. Define it clearly and use simple language. You don’t need a lofty mission or vision statement like what they teach in business schools. You can do it in any way that works for you. One of the first things to get clarity on is, “My purpose is MY purpose.” It’s not anybody else’s, so it must feel good to you, and it shouldn’t be what you think is “supposed to be.” It should be yours from your heart. Part of the power in your purpose is in the clarity and simplicity of the language you use. Disney Parks have always been driven by three words: Make People Happy. There’s tremendous power in the simplicity of our language.</span></p>

“Get Clarity on What Matters Most” with Joe Calloway
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Joe Calloway says it’s crucial that we get clarity on what matters most. To get clarity on what is most important is not easy. A quote from Steve Jobs says, “Get your thinking clean enough.” What does that mean? It means to get down to what matters most. All of us can use this filter or lens for making choices and decisions: “Will it make the boat go faster?” When you do that, the most important things tend to rise to the top of the list and will clarify the things that will get you to your goal most effectively.</span></p>

“Stop Over-complicating Things” with Joe Calloway
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Joe Calloway talks about how we often make things way more complicated than they need to be. One of the biggest reasons we over complicate is because it’s easier to make things complex than it is to make things simple. Anybody can make things complicated, and that’s where our natural tendency lies. It takes time and thought to edit your to-do list and your priorities down. But in the interest of getting the most out of your day, it’s essential to simplify. And this applies to people in their businesses, and it TRIPLE applies to those in leadership positions.</span></p>

“Overcoming Stress and Adversity” with Kim Ades
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kim Ades asks, “Are you going to use stress and adversity as an excuse for your misery?” Sometimes bad things happen, and people in our lives do not behave the way we would like, giving us a good reason to feel stress and adversity. However, Kim says every “good reason” is just an excuse to tune in to what’s bad in the world, which depletes our life experience. Stress is very often induced by how we react to the reality around us. Events are events, and the meaning we assign to those events will determine whether or not we feel stressed.</span></p>

“Taming your Critical Inner Voice” with Kim Ades
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kim Ades talks about taming your critical inner voice, which never stops talking. The voice has an opinion about everything: who we are, others, weather, politics, etc. It’s a constant internal chatter. What’s important is to acknowledge your critical inner voice and recognize that you don’t have to obey it. The critical inner voice will have an opinion, just like anybody has an opinion, but we don’t have to listen to everyone’s opinion. When you tame your critical inner voice and understand its relationship and impact on you, you slowly start to make better choices and take full responsibility for your frame of mind.</span></p>

“Dealing with Challenges” with Kim Ades
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kim Ades talks about something we all must do: dealing with challenges. Sometimes we experience some adversity or challenge and just spin in the same place. We think about it and lose sleep at night because we are replaying the events in our mind. However, when something negative happens it’s okay to have a bad day, but it’s not okay to live in that bad day for days and years to come because it erodes your time and your sense of wellness. You can feel like a victim, or you can start to pivot and turn yourself toward potential solutions, being clear on what you would rather have and how to get there.</span></p>

“Where’s Your Mind?” with Kim Ades
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kim Ades says journaling allows you to put your thoughts on paper, remove yourself and see them from a third party perspective. They are no longer inside your brain, but they are outside of you. And when something is outside of you, you can assess it more critically and do something with it. You’ll begin to pick up patterns of thought, belief, or of behavior, and identify where your thinking is pushing you forward and where it is holding you back.</span></p>

“Own Who You Are” with Alexi and Preston
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Alexi Panos and Preston Smiles talk about owning who you are and living in your truth. Unfortunately in this cookie-cutter world, many have forgotten the truth of who they are because they’ve said “yes” to all the boxes and labels others have placed on them. Living in your truth is about breaking and disassociating with those labels and asking, from a very clear space, “Who am I? What do I want to be in this moment? What do I want to be in this lifetime?” Then, "How do I want to go about doing that from a place of radical alignment and authenticity?"</span></p>

“Act Now - Break the Cycle” with Alexi and Preston
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Alexi Panos and Preston Smiles say all the theory in the world doesn’t mean anything if you are not willing to put it into play. If you are not prepared to step out of your comfort zone and step into that space of the unknown, you will never have the life of your dreams. You may get knocked down, but you always have to get back up and just be in the game. We are all a product of our patterns and habits, and you get in life what you give to life.</span></p>

“Be Radically Responsible” with Alexi and Preston
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Alexi Panos and Preston Smiles talks about our need to be radically responsible for our lives, which is a bridge to getting unstuck. A lot of people feel like they are stuck or feeling stagnant in their lives, or they don’t know that the next step is. But the truth of it is THEY are the only reason why things aren’t moving forward. And it’s because they are not willing to take radical responsibility for every single thing in their life. You are the space for everything that shows up, and if you are attracting circumstances, people and things that are not to your liking, the only thing that gets to shift is you. And once you change how you show up everything changes.</span></p>

“You always have a choice” with Alexi and Preston
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Alexi Panos and Preston Smiles remind us that, no matter where you are, no matter how low, no matter how much pain you are experiencing, you always have a choice. As long as there’s breath in our bodies we always have a choice and that choice can be towards our empowerment or a choice towards our tombstone.</span></p>

Spirituality is anything that occurs in the universe that you can’t possibly explain or under-stand. Some things happen around us, and we don’t know why or how they happen, but they happen for a reason. And spirituality is to let go of those things and trust God to take over the things over which I have no control.</span></p>

The copycat will always be one step behind the original, and you are probably not going to win that way. But when you strive to be the unique version of yourself - the unicorn within you - you can begin to create something the world has never seen.

People have had tons of bad interactions, and typically those interactions have consisted of the same old boring questions. If you meet someone in a professional setting people always ask you, “What do you do?” and it’s boring. Instead, ask people about what they love and what they are emotionally connected to, because everyone is emotional. Lead with emotional questions because when you get down to what someone cares about, you get to know them a lot better than you normally would.</span></p>

“Commit to an accountability system” with Jeff Spadafora
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Jeff Spadafora says most people fail to follow through because they try to do it (whatever it is) alone. We come up with plans and dreams, then find out implementing them is harder than we think, especially over the long haul. People have more fun talking about life purpose and joy than they actually want to do it. It’s hard. It takes intentionality, and many times you have to live outside of your comfort zone. The key is to get another person, a coach, in your life to help you stay accountable to push through the tough times.</span></p>

“Permission to Dream” with Jeff Spadafora
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Jeff Spadafora talks about giving ourselves permission to dream. Often, people get stuck once they start to dream because they may have a mindset that says, “If a revenue stream doesn’t materialize immediately the dream get’s shut down.” That’s a huge mistake and based in fear. Jeff says you can explore these dreams without quitting your day job. Instead, create the margin to explore your ideas and play them out, a little bit at a time. When you discover your calling, there is usually a way to attach a revenue stream to it. Don’t think you have to go from “quit your job” today to some fantasyland that has no income tomorrow. But, at the same time, don’t shut down dreaming if you can’t see how it will pay the bills by next week.</span></p>

“No margin. No mission” with Jeff Spadafora
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Jeff Spadafora says we’re just too busy with our work and life responsibilities, and many people do not really stop to think about the trajectory of their life. Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not a life worth living.” Just creating space to think clearly and strategically about your life like you would about your business is really important.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Some people just need to make some tweaks in their life to get back into the flow of “joy.” But there are others who find out they need to make some more significant or radical adjustments. The reason why margin is so critical is not just so that you can think, dream, and strategize, but so you can then turn those ideas into action. And if we don’t intentionally make the time to proactively explore things, talk to different people, and get into different environments, we’ll never move on from where we are.</span></p>

“Aligning Your Actions & Values” with Jeff Spadafora
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Jeff Spadafora talks about how much of the dissatisfaction we feel with our lives comes from a dissonance between our values and our actual lives. It’s different for each person. For some, it might be the mid-life crisis: The red convertible. Quit my job. Trade-up for a trophy wife. Some opt for the big, drastic change, but it’s not for everybody. Often there’s just a subtle discontent with how we are living. That’s the time to get in touch with our values, get clarity on whether we’re living according to those values, then making some strategic, intentional adjustments.</span></p>

“Finding Bliss In Your Work” with Cort Dial
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Cort Dial says bliss is not necessarily happiness, but it’s the experience of being alive, being fully human. It’s when you’re totally being present in the moment and experiencing what it means to be alive. Bliss can exist in tragedy or joy, or any other state of being. But the key to being blissful is you choosing to be present in the moment. When a person becomes intentional and decides to live a life in their bliss, the universe and circumstances seem to line up to support them.</span></p>

“The Five Conditions for Developing Performance” with Cort Dial
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Cort Dial talks about the five conditions for developing performance. Most people develop their work self-esteem according to the actions and words of their supervisor. No one - a technician in a plant or an elite professional athlete - can ever out perform their self-esteem. As their leader, if you don’t help them cultivate high self-esteem you are limiting their performance––and, by extension, the performance of the entire organization.</span></p>

“Selling Your Heretical Idea” with Cort Dial
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Cort Dial talks about the four fields from which business performance can be created. The two common areas that business people often leverage are systems and behaviors. Companies are constantly talking about their systems, programs, and different behaviors. The other two fields of performance are “self,” which is everything that goes inside a human being, and “social,” which is everything that goes on between human beings in an organization.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">You can produce extraordinary results without systems, without work in behaviors, but they have to be inspired, and that’s where your heretical idea comes into play. You have to put a  big idea in front of them, because once you articulate a big gain and they say, “I want to be part of that,” performance is no longer an issue.</span></p>

“Are You A Heretic?” with Cort Dial
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Cort Dial says a heretic in business is someone who can see a problem that no one else sees and can see the next opportunity over the horizon.

That puts the heretic in a challenging situation: they are offering opportunities and solutions to problems that others can't see.</span></p>

“Duplicating Your Day” with Clay Clark
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author & Entrepreneur Clay Clark says the success or failure of a person can be found in their daily schedule. In addition to being a meticulous time manager, Clay says we need to have these three things together: A file system, a process, and an appointed time for action. And if you lack in any of these areas, start focusing on becoming the best you can be in that field.</span></p>

“Your Daily Checklist” with Clay Clark
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Clay Clark says you need to have more rocks in your schedule (you’ll understand what a “rock” is as you listen to the show.) His point is to fill up our schedule with the things that mean the most, rather than to allow our time to be filled with small distractions that keep us from accomplishing our big goals.</span></p>

“Creating deeper love with others” with Daniel Packard
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Daniel Packard talks about some practical tips to create deeper love with others. Sometimes we get the idea that we need to be different to be loved. When you think you’re not enough to be loved it doesn’t occur to you that you could just be yourself, and that somebody might actually WANT to be with you. Instead, we can feel a need to be perfect, or shiny, or smart, or get it right like we are auditioning. The reality is that you, to the right person, are priceless.</span></p>

“How do we build self-love?” with Daniel Packard
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Daniel Packard says life and business can be limited by fear. If you are more comfortable with yourself and have more self-love, you’re better at sales because you’re not emotionally attached to the outcome, so it puts people at ease. You’re a better leader because you can be more magnanimous, more generous, more patient, and more compassionate. You can also be more authentic. When you love yourself more, you’re more vulnerable and transparent, and people resonate to those qualities. It also allows you to think outside the box more, and be a more creative thinker because there’s no fear of rejection or failure. Ultimately, you can bring your most valuable gift to your business place which is your unique self.</span></p>

“Becoming Less Afraid” with Daniel Packard
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Daniel Packard talks about how we can be less afraid in our relationships. If you trace it, all relationship fear at its core is a fear of rejection or being hurt. But if you break it down, fear of rejection doesn’t exist. Rejection technically is someone giving you a “no,” and you relate a meaning to it. It’s not the “no” that’s scary, it’s the meaning we assign to it. And the meaning that’s so scary is the deep fear we all have that we’re not enough to be loved. When you find yourself afraid to be rejected, remind yourself that rejection doesn't exist, and it's just you making it mean something about you. And unlike other people’s actions, that’s an emotion you can have control over.</span></p>

“Your Biggest Love Mistake” with Daniel Packard
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Daniel Packard talks about the biggest love mistake people make: just expecting it to “work out.” That’s the blind spot of love, because everywhere else in our lives if we want something we go out and we create it. But with love we often have a poor attitude, and it’s because we think it’s just going to “show up.” When you start to see that love - just like success or money - is a result of intentional action and a change of attitude, it starts to manifest itself.</span></p>

“The Danger in Assuming You’ve Graduated” with Stephanie Melish
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Stephanie Melish says many people have the mistaken notion that, when you’ve graduated from school, you’ve learned all there is to know. But she says that’s a big mistake because truly successful people are committed to lifelong learning. The truth is that you never graduate. There are lessons to learn in your business and life every single day. Education is important, but you should also be taking the time to self-educate and absorb information. Understand that, as long as you are alive and breathing, you should have the mindset that you’re a student.</span></p>

“Being A Copycat Instead Of A Unicorn” with Stephanie Melish
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Stephanie Melish talks about the difference between being a copycat and a unicorn when it comes to our business. The copycat will always be one step behind the original, and you are probably not going to win that way. But when you strive to be the unique version of yourself - the unicorn within you - you can begin to create something the world has never seen. You have a unique perspective, voice, and vision, and the world needs people who can share that vision instead of just copying someone else’s.</span></p>

“Setting The Wrong Goals” with Stephanie Melish
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Stephanie Melish says setting the wrong goals can lead you to the wrong place, and that’s not what you want when you are running your own business. Stephanie recommends you start at the end with your goals and work backward. Think about the legacy you want to leave. That’s the ultimate goal for your life. Then begin to reduce that legacy into steps you can put into practice that will get you there.</span></p>

“You’re NOT a Superhuman” with Stephanie Melish
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Stephanie Melish talks about a common mistake made by entrepreneurs, and that’s attempting to be superhuman. When you are leading your own path, it’s easy to fall into the trap of feeling like you have to be Superman or Wonder Woman. And it’s crazy to attempt to do all things and be everything to everyone in your business. We have to come to the realization that we cannot do everything and learn to ask for help.</span></p>

“Activate Your Brain” with Scott Halford
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Your brain is the center of who you are. It controls your body, your health, your focus and more. If you want more from it, you have to give it what it needs.

“How to Fuel Up Your Brain” with Scott Halford
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Scott Halford talks about the impact food and exercise have on the health of our brain. Our body manufactures none of the nutrients our brain needs to operate well every day, they all come from food, water, and exercise. On today’s show, you’ll learn how your body and brain are linked and why, when you are constantly in a high stressed situation, the result is usually physical sickness. You’ll also learn a simple breathing technique that can reset the stress response in our brain. You’ll also learn the single most important thing you can do for your brain.</span></p>

“Your Brain Needs Sleep” with Scott Halford
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Scott Halford says when it comes to the health of your brain, the captain of the ship is sleep. Whether you feel like you have time for it or not, your brain needs you to rest. You severely limit your ability to concentrate and focus when you don’t get enough sleep, and a chronic lack of sleep can even lead to dementia. Sleep is an eraser of stress, and it’s also a consolidator. It allows us to download and consolidate all the thoughts and memories from the day, so we become smarter when we sleep.</span></p>

“Say Goodbye to Distractions” with Scott Halford
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Our whole world is busy, complicated and filled with distractions. The temptation is to multitask in order to get it all done. But our brains don’t operate that way. You can only have one conscious thought at a time – that’s it. Multi-tasking is a myth. You can quickly switch between two things, but instead of getting two things done at once, you'll only be doing two things unwell. Author Scott Halford says it’s important to manage the distractions if accuracy and excellence are crucial to the task at hand. Turn of everything that can pop-up into your visual perspective.</span></p>

“Change Your Relationship With Stress” with Scott Halford
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Scott Halford says how you look at something can predict how your body responds to it. If you have a big proposal coming up and “sigh,” that’s an indication you’re telling yourself, “This sucks and I don’t want to do it.” But if you have a “bring it on!” attitude it can be very energizing. You will begin to have a different relationship with the things that stress you out. Your mindset does matter. You’re feeding your brain either with a positive or negative message. Your brain is going to respond to that priming, and you will act accordingly.</span></p>

“You Are The One” with Kute Blackson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">So what are you waiting for?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">For someone to save you? If so, you’re not alone. But it’s not going to happen. Your parents won’t rescue you. Your friends won’t carry you. No one’s coming. Know why? Everything you are seeking is within you already. <em>Because you’re already here.</em> You. Are. The. ONE.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On today’s show, Dave recaps episodes 566-569 where transformational speaker Kute Blackson shares inspiring, life-changing lessons from his book, “You Are The One: A Bold Adventure in Finding Purpose, Discovering the Real You, and Loving Fully.”</span></p>

“Love Now” with Kute Blackson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kute Blackson reveals the real purpose and power behind everything we do…love. But how do we bring love and peace in the world if there’s no love and peace in ourselves? How do we bring love and community in the world if there’s no love in our hearts for ourselves? At the end of our lives, everything boils down to this: did you love fully or did you spend your life holding back?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Here’s the bottom line: THIS is the moment is all we have. This is it. Every single second of our life is the moment you’ve been waiting for, and every moment of your life is an opportunity to love.</span></p>

“The Master Addiction” with Kute Blackson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kute Blackson says one of the things we have to give up to avoid suffering and be truly free is our need for control. We have to begin to distinguish the things we can change from those we cannot, and stop trying to control the things we can’t. All of our suffering in life comes from what worrying and working to fix what we have no power over.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">What is in our control is our actions and thoughts. We can control ourselves.</span></p>

“Lose Your Mind” with Kute Blackson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kute Blackson says our mind is constantly going. We have 65,000-75,000 thoughts a day. It’s a constant person inside of us saying, “Hey, don’t do that,” “Do that,” “Eat that ice cream,” “What’s wrong with you?” “You’re not good enough.” “Oh my God, you’re so _____!”</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Our mind is programmed and conditioned from childhood, and many of the thoughts we’re thinking are not even ours, they’ve been passed down to us from generation to generation, and we’re just playing them out daily. But just because the thought is in your mind it doesn’t mean it’s real or a fact. We must realize that it’s not the thoughts that are important but your relationship with your thoughts. The mind is an amazing salesperson, and we must start to question and not just buy what our mind is selling us. Kute teaches us how to decipher and stop buying fake thoughts believing they’re real.</span></p>

“You. Are. The. One.” with Kute Blackson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kute Blackson’s message is one we all need to hear. When you look at the world today, with all the craziness going on, we must acknowledge that the Government is not going to save you, your parents are not going to save you, your friends are not going to carry you forever. Bottom line: if it’s going to be…it’s going to be us. When you make that mental shift and recognize that no one owes you anything, it frees you up to stop looking outside of yourself to be saved or rescued, and it forces you to take radical responsibility for yourself and your own life in a way you’ve never done before.</span></p>

“The Miracle Morning For Salespeople” with Ryan Snow
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">There are countless books written for salespeople about various sales techniques. Most salespeople use these techniques daily, yet the majority still fail to achieve the results they want. So, what is the difference between "average" performers and the top 1% in your company or industry? The more you study the world’s top salespeople, in any industry, the more you realize that their success is a result of who they are more than merely what they do. Thus, logic would have it that if you want to take your SALES to the next level, you must first figure out how to take your SELF to the next level (because it only happens in that order).</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Today, Dave recaps episodes 561-564 where Ryan Snow shares tips from his book, “The Miracle Morning for Salespeople: The Fastest Way to Take Your SELF and Your SALES to the Next Level.”</span></p>

“Sales Is An Energy Sport” with Ryan Snow
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Ryan Snow says what you eat, how you exercise, and your mental energy has a tremendous impact on your sales and business. Ryan says when it comes to sales, energy transfers. So the energy we bring to the table is what we’re going to see in our clients.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Also, we live in a results-driven society. But sales can be a long and grueling process, so there will be times we don’t immediately see the results of our labor. So it's important to have the stamina to keep pushing forward until we see the results.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On today’s show, Ryan gives us some simple tips to increase energy to grow your business.</span></p>

“Managing Your Time and Money” with Ryan Snow
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Ryan Snow talks about the importance managing time and money, and how they impact our ability to become successful in sales and business.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">There are many things we come into contact with in business that we can't control. And when we encounter one of those situations, we have two options: either blame all the outside forces or take responsibility for ourselves and our business.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Ryan says, when we start in business, we tend to have a lot more time than money. And it’s easy to waste time when we have a lot of it. So we have to become efficient at managing our time. As our business grows, we have less and less time, but more and more money. So there’s a shift that takes place, and we have to master managing our time and money, leveraging both to make our business grow.</span></p>

“A Powerful Morning Routine” with Ryan Snow
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Ryan Snow talks about The S.A.V.E.R.S. routine and how it can help grow your business. It’s an acronym that stands for Silence, Affirmations, Visualizations, Exercise, Reading, and Scribing. How do salespeople use these strategies? Ryan says we attract the people we become. So if we want to have Level Ten clients, we do that by becoming Level Ten people. Better sales means becoming a better version of yourself, and that comes through practicing a powerful morning routine.</span></p>

“We’re ALL Salespeople” with Ryan Snow
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Ryan Snow talks about why everyone in business is in sales - or should be. How does your level of personal development affect your level of success in business and sales?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Ryan studied what makes certain people highly successful in business and sales, and came up with two common themes. First, you are always looking at the value that you are adding for your clients, being amazing at what you do. Second, you can be the best at anything, but if you don’t have any clients to add value to, then you have no opportunity to add that value to the world.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On today’s show, Ryan will show us how to set our focus to grow not only our business but ourselves, so we can affect more people as we have the opportunity to offer value.</span></p>

“There Are ALWAYS More Options” with Elizabeth Crook
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Elizabeth Crook talks about a critical step in decision making, to identify all your possible options. In our culture, we tend to think in terms of either/or instead of having an abundance of possibilities. Often, the way we come to our decisions is to boil it down to, “I can either do this OR do that.” Instead, we should ask, “What are the other options I could entertain?” As we allow ourselves to consider more options, we begin to see our whole range of choices instead of getting locked into binary thinking.</span></p>

“Making Decisions When Emotions Run High” with Elizabeth Crook
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Elizabeth Crook reminds us that hard things happen in life. People lose jobs, or a big client, divorce, illness…something we did not imagine. And as those storms come into our life, it feels like our whole landscape has been destroyed. Many times we try and run from those emotions rather than face our emotional storm so we can move forward. Elizabeth says it’s better to allow ourselves to face and feel the emotions, then move past them so we can base our decisions on the hard truth of the facts as they are.</span></p>

“Opportunity or Detour?” with Elizabeth Crook
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Elizabeth Crook says as we walk through our life or business, all kinds of tempting invitations will come our way. But as you work through your strategic planning, you will have to decide if those “opportunities” the direction you should be going based on what you want, or are they a detour that will take you away from your ultimate goal? Sometimes others will offer us opportunities, and we have to decide if we’re playing their game instead of playing our own.</span></p>

“Decisions With No Regrets” with Elizabeth Crook
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Elizabeth Crook says if you are not clear on what you want and why then you end up looking at pros and cons without having clarity. Your first step is the foundational question, “What do I want out of the situation?” When making a big decision on a complicated situation there are many steps, but the first step is to know clearly what your bottom line is.</span></p>

“Mindfulness” with Wilma Jones
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Wilma Jones talks about mindfulness, or the ability to be present in the current moment. It’s capacity to focus on exactly where you are right now and what you are doing in the moment without judgment. The biggest thing about mindfulness is the incorporation of breathing, because breathing while you're mindful is what causes the physiological changes that happen to your body. There is also a difference between mindfulness vs. mindlessness. When you’re mindless, you let past experiences keep you stuck in behavior patterns. Mindfulness is all about having control over your thoughts without judging and making assumptions about what’s going to happen based on your memories of the past.</span></p>

“Your Killer App at Work” with Wilma Jones
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Wilma Jones talks about why kindness is a powerful force in the work environment. If you have one kind person in the midst of those who are negative or don’t care, the things the kind person does can ripple and impact everyone else positively. Kindness is so powerful because it’s the only thing that changes not only the individual who is kind, and the person who receives the act of kindness, but it also positively impacts anyone who views that act of kindness.</span></p>

“Your Energizing Elixir at the Office” with Wilma Jones
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Wilma Jones talks about why exercise can be an energizing force for you at work. Exercise is critically important primarily because of what it does to your brain as well as your ability to focus. That creates increased accuracy and causes you to be more engaging because it gives your brain the ability to clean out all of those things you’ve been working on and stressing with all day. It’s scientifically proven that, if you can incorporate a few minutes of exercise, it will significantly improve your happiness and ability to do your job.</span></p>

“Gratitude Can Take You Everywhere” with Wilma Jones
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Wilma Jones talks about how gratitude is all about taking back your control. Once you learn how to use gratitude proactively in your life, what other people do or say can no longer make you mad. That’s because you’ve regained the power over how you react to a situation. Gratitude is a way to reframe your reality. When you have more gratitude and thankfulness about what you experience, it changes the way you look at life and the way that you react to things.</span></p>

“NEVER Binge Again” with Glenn Livingston
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Most contemporary thought on overeating and bingeing focuses on healing and self-love.  But people who've overcome food and weight issues often report it was more like capturing and caging a rabid dog than learning to love their inner child.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Open the cage even an inch—or show that dog an ounce of fear—and it'll quickly burst out to shred your healthy eating plans, undoing all your progress in a heartbeat. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On today’s show, Dave recaps episodes 546-549 where Glenn Livingston talks about his book, “Never Binge Again: Reprogram Yourself to Think Like a Permanently Thin Person.

“Building Powerful Food Rules” with Glenn Livingston
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Glenn Livingston talks about the practicalities of implementing food rules in our lives. The process of rule construction is a process of reclaiming responsibility for your food choices. Our history has been to follow XYZ Diet Guru, then letting your inner saboteur say, “Well, there’s this problem with XYZ Diet Guru’s methods, so I’ll have to try some other diet guru.” But setting up food rules is a  process of taking ownership and responsibility for your own eating behavior.</span></p>

The key is to draw solid lines in the sand and recognize the inner saboteur when it speaks.

“Why You Don’t Eat Right” with Glenn Livingston
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Glenn Livingston talks about the various types of foods and eating behaviors that cause people to lose control. We all have a lizard brain, the oldest part of the brain, the brain stem. It's responsible for primitive survival instincts such as aggression and fear ("flight or fight.”) It looks at things in our environment and says, “Do I eat it, do I kill it, or do I mate with it?” But the lizard brain becomes our enemy when it latches onto a toxic food or behavior as if it’s a matter of survival. It doesn’t matter what your higher self wants. All that matters is that the lizard brain says, “I need that to survive. I need to eat that, and that’s it.”</span></p>

“How a Plan Changes Everything” with Rachel Cruze
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Rachel Cruze says a budget doesn’t have to feel restrictive and take away all our fun. Instead, a  budget is a permission to spend. It allows you to do the things you want and value; you just have to do it on purpose. Having a budget also makes your spending more enjoyable and takes the guilt and shame away, because the spending is what you planned and you are not second guessing yourself. Take control of your money or your money will take control of you. And the number one way to take control of your money is to have a budget.</span></p>

“Recognize Your Money Habits” with Rachel Cruze
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Rachel Cruze believes that, if you can create good money habits in your life, it just sets you up well for the future. And the idea of “habits” is doing something every day, little decisions that lead towards something healthy and good. Then you wake up one day and realize that habit has now become a part of who you are. Things become automatic to you, and it doesn’t have to be a stretch and fight every single time you look at your checking account.</span></p>

“The Financial Impact of Social Media” with Rachel Cruze
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Rachel Cruze wants us to remember that social media isn’t all reality – it’s someone else’s highlight reel. It often leads to comparisons and discontentment, which can dead-end in debt. Stop spending too much money trying to keep up a lifestyle you think everyone else is living, and you’re missing out on. You don’t know what is going on in their lives.</span></p>

Theodore Roosevelt said, “Comparison is the thief of joy,” and it's amazing how comparing your life to others can steal your joy.  It can snatch away the happiness and joy you experience in the moment because you are concentrating on someone else’s life, not yours.</span></p>

“Awaken Your Superpower” with Alex Charfen
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Most people live their entire lives in the herd, following trends and driving toward expectations that others hold over them. It’s understandable: challenging the status quo is difficult and scary. But this fear results in a lack of perspective. It forces people to live their lives without.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">While many books, seminars, and presentations have been developed around the power of intention, few understand the real tactics of intention. But there are tactics, steps we can all take to live with intention and achieve our greatest outcomes. By understanding how to lower pressure and noise in our lives, and create the systems and frameworks for protection and support, anyone can allow their unique strengths and abilities – their superpowers – to show up in incredible ways.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On today’s show, Dave recaps episodes 536-539 where Alex Charfen shares how to Awaken Your Superpower.</span></p>

“Two Keys for Success in the New Economy” with Angus Nelson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Angus Nelson talks about Two Keys for Success in the new free-agent economy: Being a self-learner and becoming an expert networker.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Becoming the best at what you do is going to separate you from other free-agents out there competing with you. That means you have to put the time in to become a master of your craft. And with the resources available these days, there is plenty of training and help to get you there.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">The second key is expanding your network of relationships. Not just shaking hands and passing out business cards, but quality and valuable relationships. In the past, you could bury your head, do your job and let your boss take care of the rest. But in the free agent economy, you become responsible for developing the relationships that will help you expand your reach and build your business.</span></p>

“Adopting the New Free Agent Mindset” with Angus Nelson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Angus Nelson talks about the critical nature of self-awareness and coaching for free agent workers. The scope of self-awareness is going a key component, particularly in the transaction of contracts. Big brands can no longer make unreasonable demands on you. Company leadership will have to take on a different approach in how they treat their contract labor force with empathy, compassion, and understanding.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On the other side of the equation, as a contractor, it’s critical to develop the soft skills of negotiating and networking, making them as important as your hard skills. You are now developing rapport and relationships in developing your network and connections, so you have to learn the savvy of interaction.</span></p>

“Keys to Being a Successful Free Agent” with Angus Nelson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Angus Nelson talks about the keys to being a successful free agent. He says the three most important strategies are managing your brand, network, and reputation. A free agent has the liberty to work as much or a little as they want, anywhere they want. Also, the hourly fees tend to be higher, but with the advantages, there will be a demand for excellence and the responsibility will be on you to deliver.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">You are your own brand and company as a free agent, and that means you have to manage your brand and reputation. And as you become the best known and respected provider in your field, people will pay top dollar for someone they know, like, and trust.</span></p>

“Your Place in the Free Agent Economy” with Angus Nelson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Angus Nelson talks about the development of what experts call the “free agent economy.” He says the nature of work is dramatically changing into what he calls the “Gig Economy” regarding tasks. In everything from delivering groceries to delivering people, more and more companies are relying on contract labor. It’s a massive shift where companies are no longer incentivized to have full-time employees.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">How do you make the transition to survive and thrive in the free agent economy? How do you change your mindset to prepare for the changing economy and nature of work? You’ll get answers to these questions and more.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Michael Weinberger talks about the second of what he calls “the big three” of our emotional health: spirituality. Spirituality is anything that occurs in the universe that you can’t possibly explain or understand. Some things happen around us, and we don’t know why or how they happen, but they happen for a reason. And spirituality is to let go of those things and trust God to take over the things over which I have no control.</span></p>

“How to Lose Your Emotional Obesity” with Laura Coe
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Our culture is emotionally obese. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">We are unhappy, we are unfulfilled, we are resentful, and we harbor the emotional issues - from childhood till now - that keep us from achieving our dreams. Whether we know it or not.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">From selling her multi-million dollar business to the Fortune 500 to writing her latest book, it's been a journey for Laura Coe.

“Workouts for Your Emotional Health” with Laura Coe
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Laura Coe says "Workouts for Your Wellbeing" are the key to staying in great emotional shape. And take heart, there’s no physical sweating required. We all have problems in our lives that we’d like to fix. But the first step to addressing those issues, as hard as they are to admit, is to get a realistic assessment of where the pain points are. You are not alone with the crazy thoughts in your head. Getting emotionally healthy is the most meaningful and worthwhile exercise you can do because you’ll live a life that is authentic.</span></p>

“The Truth About Authenticity” with Laura Coe
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Laura Coe says our minds are a great tool for analyzing things, but often not good at telling us the truth. We all have certain people we look at and say, “Oh, man, they’ve got it together!” We project our fantasy to other people, believing they don’t struggle with the same negative thoughts we do, and that’s just not the case. How do you find your authentic inner voice in the crowd of other voices that surround you? The limiting thoughts in your head that come from other places always make you feel weighed down. But when you listen to your deeper, authentic self, you’ll find there’s a lift of excitement and enthusiasm that comes with it.</span></p>

“How to Get Your Mind in Shape” with Laura Coe
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Laura Coe teaches about how to take back your life and get your mind in shape. We live in a culture where, when we have limiting or negative thoughts, the typical response is, “Man up!” But she says it’s important for us to question the cultural mindset that it’s okay to walk around with these thoughts weighing us down. “Push through no matter what, and just work harder” is not always the answer. Sometimes it’s questioning these belief systems and taking a different path.</span></p>

“Why You’re Stressed and Tired” with Laura Coe
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Laura Coe says the stress in your life isn’t from lack of time, sleep, or organization, but from neglecting your emotional life. The thoughts in our head that most of us don’t pay much attention to can start to weigh us down. And when we say things like, “I dread this, I feel heavy, or I don’t want to do this,” we don’t realize how much those thoughts start to weigh us down. And just like our physical bodies can weigh us down, our thoughts can as well.</span></p>

“Embracing and Telling Your Story” with Toan Lam
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Everyone has a <strong><em>power</em></strong>. It comes in many forms: your talent (what you're naturally good at doing), resources or network.

<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Toan Lam says we all have the gift of time, however short or long it may be, on this earth. And having unique experiences matters because everything we go through matters. Toan believes life is designed to challenge us so we can grow physically, mentally and spiritually, and it’s up to you to focus in on that and pay attention. When you can share your story, and care about sharing your story, the world around you cares and shares with you.</span></p>

“Communicate Your Story” with Toan Lam
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Toan Lam believes we are all brought into this world with an extraordinary power, with something that makes us different and unique.

And the best gift we can give to each other is the gift of “yourself” and your story.</span></p>

“Identify Your Story” with Toan Lam
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Toan Lam shows us how to identify and understand our unique story. Think about what makes you unique and different. If you don’t know, ask your friends, “What was it about me that ‘wowed’ you?” Anytime you are wowed, write it down. You’ll start collecting little pieces of the puzzle of what makes you stand out, and EVERYBODY stands out.</span></p>

“Embrace Your Story” with Toan Lam
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Most people think they don’t have much power, and they don’t matter. Toan Lam says you can affect change just by tapping into the power of your story and realizing you are stronger than you think. We are all brought into this world with an extraordinary power. It’s up to us to discover that power and use it to its fullest potential before we die. That’s real joy. But joy comes from using your abilities, not only to help yourself but give to other people and invest in them.</span></p>

“The A.D.D Entrepreneur” with Matt Curry
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Entrepreneurs are different. We're wired differently. We're the 1%. To others, we're on the lunatic fringe, and to many, we're risk takers. However, when you get a group of entrepreneurs in a room together, we're pretty much all the same. One of the key traits that make us who we are is that most of us "suffer" from Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.).</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On this episode, Dave recaps episode 501-504 where Matt talks about his book “The A.D.D Entrepreneur: How To Harness Your Superpowers To Create A Kickass Company” and how we can transform A.D.D. from a limitation to a superpower.</span></p>

“Stop Confusing and Start Convincing” with Matt Curry
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Matt Curry talks about boosting your sales by using the 5 C’s: Commonality, Complement, Connect, Collaborate, and Close. People don’t want their time wasted, they want the information they need to make a decision. And they don’t need more than that, because too much information slows down the buying decision. Often we tend to give the customer too much information, and that confuses them. Instead, stop confusing and get right to the close.</span></p>

“Find a Way To Say Yes” with Matt Curry
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Matt Curry firmly believes in the power of “Yes” and having a positive mindset when it comes to sales and your company. Customers have a problem they need to be solved, and it’s your job to find the solution. Find a way to say “Yes” as much as possible, because if you say “No” enough times, the customer is going to go somewhere else. People will pay you for “Yes!”</span></p>

“Practice the Art of Creative Destruction” with Matt Curry
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Matt Curry says the art of creative destruction is practicing continuous improvement in your organization. It’s always trying to tweak. If you have something that’s working well, don’t just sit on it and relax, try to figure out a way to even make it better. Obviously, if there’s an area where things are not going well that’s not practicing creative destruction, that’s just fixing a problem. But when things are going well, the remarkable entrepreneurs are always trying to refine the system or the workflow to become even more efficient both for you as a company and the customer.</span></p>

“Begin at the Beginning” with Matt Curry
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Matt Curry talks about living your entrepreneurial life and becoming aware of our individual skills and talents. He says that each of us has a “superpower” that we can share with the world. But you don’t find that superpower necessarily right away. You have to do the hard work to experiment and grow to find your superpower, and that's what it means to begin at the beginning. You are going to wade through a lot of challenges, you are not always going to be doing stuff that you like, that’s part of life.</span></p>

“Trust and Betrayal in the Workplace” with Michelle Reina
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Trust is a nonnegotiable for high-performing relationships and organizations. Yet trust is fragile, and 90 percent of the behaviors that break it are subtle, fleeting, and unintentional. Today, Dave recaps episodes 496-499 where Michelle Reina shares powerful lessons in trust from her book, “Trust and Betrayal in the Workplace: Building Effective Relationships in Your Organization.”</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

“Rebuilding Trust” with Michelle Reina
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Michelle Reina says the vast majority of compromised and damaged trust are small and subtle, and they can have an accumulative impact. There is a myriad of small, subtle ways that trust gets compromised: a single act, a single misstep. And a pattern of these breaches of trust that add up over time, we begin damaging the health of our relationships.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">We rebuild trust when we start to reframe those experiences. We consider the bigger picture or extenuating circumstances, and we give the benefit of the doubt to the person who hurt us or let us down. And we always have to take responsibility for how we respond, how we move forward, and how we forgive ourselves and others.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

“Building the Trust of Capability” with Michelle Reina
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Michelle Reina says trust of capability is when you acknowledge others’ skills and abilities, express appreciation for work well done, involve others in making decisions, and encourage learning. At the highest level, trust of capability teaches others that they can trust you to know what you’re doing, to ask for input when you don’t, and to identify and develop the value that others could be adding to you and the organization.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">As you practice the behaviors that lead to a high trust of capability, your confidence in your innate talents grows, as well as your awareness of and comfort with your shortcomings. You become positioned as a resident expert, trusted subject matter coach, and a genuinely competent professional.</span></p>

“Building the Trust of Communication” with Michelle Reina
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Michelle Reina talks about how trust of communication is what defines “how” we are going to talk with one another. Relationships are hard. Trust is not a linear process, and there are going to be times when it will become compromised, for no other reason than we are human beings. When dealing with others, all of us will trip up and make mistakes. When there is trust in our communication we can talk about those errors, and we can leverage them for the learning and the insights they have to offer us.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

“Building the Trust of Character” with Michelle Reina
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Michelle Reina talks about trust of character as the baseline starting point of trust in business relationships. We build confidence in our character when we keep our word and deliver what we promise. We also build trust in our character when we’re clear about what we expect from others, and we help manage those expectations so that others can be successful in how they’re working and dealing with us.</span></p>

“The Power of the Commitment Compartment” with Aaron Anastasi
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Aaron Anastasi talks about the transformative power of what he calls the “Commitment Compartment.” Everyone can place something in their commitment compartment and say, “I’m determined to make this happen no matter what.” But for some reason when it comes to our dreams, seeds of doubt begin to sprout, and it becomes easy for that goal to pop out of our commitment compartment. Getting clear about what we want and placing it in our commitment compartment helps us eliminate doubt and get the kind of momentum that leads to habit, which makes things easier to do with less effort.</span></p>

“Being vs. Doing” with Aaron Anastasi
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Aaron Anastasi talks about how the distinction between “being” and “doing” can change everything for us. We are often focused on “doing,” and pride ourselves on being hardworking and tenacious. But there’s a ceiling to hard work, and it turns out it’s a pretty low ceiling. Especially when we don’t shift our way of seeing ourselves and the world around us. We can choose a way of “being” in any given moment that will open up greater possibility for a superior result. “Who do you have to BE to get the results that you want?”</span></p>

“How to Get Unstuck” with Aaron Anastasi
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Aaron Anastasi gives us advice on how to move through those times when we feel like we’re stuck. The hardest part and highest level of resistance is just before we start. Right before we start we’re in a mode of uncertainty that indicates there’s a lack of clarity in our vision. The more specific we become in our vision, and the more we attach it to our “why” the more we’re motivated. Once we’re clear, the steps of what to do just lay themselves out, and we begin naturally looking for opportunities to achieve our goals and dreams.</span></p>

“Silence Your Limiting Voices” with Aaron Anastasi
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Aaron Anastasi says we have built our entire life on a network of stories. We’re sitting down, we’re standing up, or we’re lying down; those are the only things that are true about us in the physical universe. Other than those, we’re living in some story we have constructed to deal with the world around us. So it’s important for us to choose the stories in which we live. Choose how you perceive your life and that will determine the quality of the actions you take and the results you get.</span></p>

“Broadcasting Happiness” with Michelle Gielan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">New research from the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience shows that small shifts in the way we communicate can create big ripple effects on business and educational outcomes, including higher productivity, better performance ratings, and lower levels of stress.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On this episode, Dave recaps episodes 486-489 where Michelle Gielan shares tips from her book, “Broadcasting Happiness: The Science of Igniting and Sustaining Positive Change”</span></p>

“Why It’s Important to Recharge Yourself” with Michelle Gielan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Michelle Gielan says we all need to fill our own positive bucket before we can give it out to others. Often we ask, “Is the glass half empty or is the glass half full?” Ultimately it doesn’t matter if have a whole pitcher full of water right next to you. If you have a leak in it, it will be empty soon. So fill your pitcher. Make sure to take time out from your workday to go for a walk or get coffee with somebody and give yourself a chance to have a social connection with others.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Vacations without a doubt are one of the best ways you can spend your energy. The key is to get your mind away from the typical day-to-day. The more we find activities we love, the more we can be in the “flow moment” while we’re experiencing it.</span></p>

“How to Move Past “Stressed and Stuck”” with Michelle Gielan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Michelle Gielan says if we’re feeling stressed or negative about something, it means we have a story in our mind about that situation. And that story that’s making us feel negative or stressed is not serving us well. In any given moment we can pull a full range of facts from our environment and our memory. The question then becomes, “What is my brain focusing on at that moment?”</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Michelle says we should “fact check” these memories and emotions. Are your memories correct? Do they tell the complete story? Are there other memories you can think about that will help you reframe that story? If a story is not working for you and is stressing you out, fact check it and make sure you have the right set of facts that can help move you forward.</span></p>

“Dealing with Negative People” with Michelle Gielan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Michelle Gielan talks about dealing with negative people. It’s important to remember that they might not even realize their behavior, so our efforts to redirect their negative behavior is as important for them as it is for us. The key is to do it in a very systematic way that creates a trajectory of positive experiences.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">We have incredible power to influence people, even though we may not realize it. Many times we think, “I can’t change other people.” But we can have an incredible effect on others when we decide to show up and be intentional about our interactions.</span></p>

“The Danger of Negative Conversations” with Michelle Gielan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Michelle Gielan talks about getting caught in negative conversations. What is your response to problems? How do you talk about them in a way that leaves people feeling empowered and ready to take forward action?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">It’s not that you want to ignore the negative. Rather, it’s about putting the brain in a positive place to perceive stress, and other significant issues in our lives that are not positive, in a more empowered state, both for us and those around us.</span></p>

This Contribution Equation is both the shortcut to success and, as Alex contends, the meaning of life. For EPT’s, what life is all about is knowing you moved things forward, you were in momentum, and you made a contribution every day.</span></p>

“Entrepreneurial Loops and Spirals” with Alex Charfen
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Alex Charfen warns us about what he calls “entrepreneurial loops and spirals” and the challenge of unintentional consumption. Whether it’s books, seminars, coaches, or online programs, entrepreneurs have the tendency to consume information and products unintentionally in an effort to find momentum. To combat these negative loops and spirals of wasted activity, we must increase their awareness and intention around the content we consume.</span></p>

“Entrepreneurial Suppression: Why You Feel Like You Don’t Belong” with Alex Charfen
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Alex Charfen says the world is uncomfortable because EPT’s make them nervous. Most people want things to stay the same. Societal systems (like public education) are set up to standardize behavior and suppress what’s unique, different or new. Recognizing this, entrepreneurs can reverse the cycle of Entrepreneurial Suppression to maximize their unique attributes and live in their strengths.</span></p>

“Momentum: The Life Blood of the Entrepreneur” with Alex Charfen
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Alex Charfen says The Entrepreneurial Personality Type (EPT) is a personality type that explains your behavior and the way you interact with the world … there’s nothing wrong with you, and you are not alone. This type is a sub-population of human beings that is driven to move forward, momentum based, and wants to create new outcomes in the world. When we look at success throughout history, and when we look at people who’ve been driven to move the world forward, we don’t see formulas or plans, what we see is a personality type…the EPT.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">If you could point to one word, to one factor, to one element or cause of what happens to you in your life, it is decision.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On this episode, Dave recaps and share some of his thoughts about the important decision-making lessons that guest Kevin Hogan taught in episodes 476-479, based on his course: “Decision Point--Discover a System of Decision Making That Will Clear the Way to Success.”</span></p>

“The NUMBER ONE Way You Self-Sabotage” with Kevin Hogan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kevin Hogan shares tips on how to recognize and defuse procrastination, because of all of the different ways you can self-sabotage, procrastination is by far the most common. Many times we already know we should be doing something, or we should be in the process of making a decision, but we just don’t want to do it right now because the fear is so high.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

“Make Decisions Without Self-Sabotage” with Kevin Hogan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Most decisions we make are non-conscious. For example, you get an email, and you just click on it. We make hundreds and hundreds of decisions every day without any awareness whatsoever, and that’s a good thing because our brain knows what has to happen around us. And 97-99% of the time it’s doing a pretty good job.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">But then there are the bigger, more impactful decisions that are very conscious. Buy a new house, change jobs, or start a new business are decisions that fall in that category. Those kinds of decisions are very hard to navigate when they bump up against our fear of change and begin to inspire self-sabotage. In this episode, Kevin Hogan guides us through self-sabotage and how to make decisions in a conscious, practical way that helps us get past our fear of change.</span></p>

“How to Build Your Know, Like, and Trust Factor” with Kara Ronin
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Kara Ronin says the way we interact with others in business is perhaps the most critical area of focus for any professional. But it’s also the area many of us neglect the most. We often think about how to improve our technical skills, but, at the end of the day, what’s going to make you stand out when you interact with a client is your level of social skills. Kara says those soft-skill elements that people rarely think about can be critical to your overall business success.</span></p>

“How to Do It All” with Linda Formichelli
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">You want to do, see, and experience everything you can to create a rich, memorable life. Travel. Volunteer work. Athletic events. Entertaining. Reading, learning and trying new things. And you want to look and feel great while you do it. In fact, your favorite saying just might be “Life is not a dress rehearsal.”  BUT: Read any blog, magazine, or book and the common refrain is, “You have SO much to do! You need to simplify your life and say ‘No’ to things you don’t want to do.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Linda Formichelli says that’s BS. On today’s show, Dave recaps episodes 466-469 where Linda shares valuable lessons and wise tips from her book, “How to Do It All: The Revolutionary Plan to Create a Full, Meaningful Life — While Only Occasionally Wanting to Poke Your Eyes Out With a Sharpie.”</span></p>

“Are you really working that hard?” with Linda Formichelli
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">According to author Linda Formichelli, most of us feel like we’re always working. But when we get to the end of the day we may realize that we’ve been spinning our wheels, doing unimportant things, putting out fires. Is that really work? Businesspeople and entrepreneurs tend to SAY they're working hard, but they count thinking, planning, and worrying as "work." How much of your day looks like you are actually taking physical action towards your goals?</span></p>

“Overcoming Overwhelm” with Linda Formichelli
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Linda Formichelli says if you are going to try to do everything you want to do, there are times when you will feel overwhelmed. Anytime you do something that’s worthwhile, or anything that is going to be memorable to you, it’s going to involve some stress. And that’s okay if you can find ways to mitigate it. Instead, we should learn to change our relationship with stress and redefine it, so it’s not such a dirty word.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

“Ditch Your Excuses” with Linda Formichelli
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Linda Formichelli says that your excuses are trying to be helpful to you. Somehow your brain is considering it more important to avoid possible failure or being embarrassed than to take action on what you want to do. We need to remember that everybody feels this fear, everybody has this resistance. If you are envying someone who’s doing everything you’ve always wanted to do, even though they look like they have no fear…they do. They have just learned to act in spite of the fear.</span></p>

“You don't FIND time, you MAKE time” with Linda Formichelli
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Linda Formichelli says we need to recognize that we have more time than we think. If you were to track your time, you would find a lot of leftover hours, and that you are not doing as much work, childcare, and house care as you think. We need to change our mindset and understand that the time is there, somewhere hiding out, and we need to figure out how to find it. Then we can arrange it into chunks of useful time where we can do something important.</span></p>

“Stop building castles on sand” with Steve Rodgers
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Steve Rodgers says, ultimately, that we have to know what our “Why” is. “Why are you doing this?” Knowing your “Why” creates the foundation for what you are building. There’s typically a higher meaning and purpose as to why people want to have more money and that’s because they want to do something with it. There’s a “Why.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">But when we don’t build our lives or business on the firm foundation of a clear, passionate purpose, then we’re building castles on sand. And when you don’t know the basis of why you started in the first place, it can make you feel very empty and cause your castle to collapse. You must begin your journey with the firm foundation of a robust and passionate reason why.</span></p>

“Creating Your Roadmap” with Steve Rodgers
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Steve Rodgers says getting your personal dreams mapped out on paper is important, as is talking with your partner/spouse about them. Equally important is to keep accountable to your plan by tracking your progress on a weekly and monthly basis and course correcting along the way. Anything worth playing is worth planning by having a game plan with some actionable steps instead of just winging it and hoping for the best. There is a price you pay for everything, and you have to determine are you willing to pay the cost or not. If you’re not, then don’t do it. If you are, then figure out how to get there and imagine the joys and benefits on the other side of making it happen.</span></p>

“Manifesting the Dream” with Steve Rodgers
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Steve Rodgers says we have to realize that fear is part of the equation. No matter what we do in life, if it has any substance; is going to push, excite, and thrill us; or will help modify or change our lives, it typically has some fear attached to it. Just realize that fear is part of the process. Once you recognize the fear, the quicker you can break through it and find the power that is on the other side of fear. You should even be excited when fear shows up because it means you are getting closer to what you are supposed to be doing.</span></p>

“Creating the dream to possibility” with Steve Rodgers
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Steve Rodgers says the first step in transforming your dream into a possibility is taking the vision that’s in your heart and head, and getting it down on paper. Then create a plan for how you’re going to make it happen. Steve says we should get into the habit of writing goals and business plans, and getting things on paper. There’s something almost “magical” that happens when we write things down. Dreams have a way of materializing, and people are more likely to buy into your vision when it’s clear and articulated on paper.</span></p>

Memorial Day: What's Your Cause?
<p>What does it take to be a hero? Why would an otherwise normal person risk their life to help others? When you think about it, it’s confusing and inspiring to see someone who’s willing to act in the moment, to risk everything for someone else.</p> <p>There are some insights we can glean from their sacrifice that just might help us as we navigate our business and our lives. On today's episode, Dave is going to explore a few of those.</p>

<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Brian Fisher says fear and procrastination are two of the biggest enemies that will rob us of success. He says the one thing that cures fear is action.

Always remember that doors may open and doors may close, but there’s always something good that will come out of it when we are persistent and take action.</span></p>

“Go Beyond Average” with Brian Fisher
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">If you want to be successful in business or life, you must move beyond average. Many people fall short because they do not have this mentality. Whether it’s career, relationships, or life, if you do not go beyond average you’re not going to achieve the highest level of success and happiness you possible for you.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

“Pick a Lane” with Brian Fisher
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Brian Fisher says focus is a difficult thing to master. When we multitask, we get sloppy and careless. So it is critical for our success to be disciplined and focus only on one thing. Put everything else (email, social media, etc.) on a shelf when you are working on that one thing. In life, when we fail to focus on what we are doing the effects might not be apparent or visible until the damage is done.</span></p>

“Don’t Build on Sand” with Brian Fisher
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Brian Fisher says it’s crucial to know your strong personal “why.” You must know why you want to be successful and why you want to be an entrepreneur because it serves as the foundation for everything you want to do in life. If you build a house on sand, it’s not going to weather the storm, but if you build your house on a solid foundation, you can put up with a lot of storms, critics and naysayers, and the challenges and adversities you’re going to face.</span></p>

“Protect Your Personal Power Hours” with Marcia Ramsland
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Professional organizer Marcia Ramsland talks about your individual “power hours,” or the time of day you work at peak capacity, focus, and productivity. Typically it’s one to two hours, and you have to know when they occur. Otherwise, you’ll be zigging and zagging and reacting all day. Determine a particular, intentional point that is a power time in your week.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Also, when is your best time where you’re most alert to talk to people? Plan meetings during these times when you’ll be most ready to interact with others. Then, and probably most importantly, what is your determined relationship time with your loved ones? It’s critical for success that we put an emphasis and guard those power hours in our lives while everything else funnels around it.</span></p>

“15 Minutes - The Difference Between Average and Excellence” with Marcia Ramsland
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Professional organizer Marcia Ramsland talks about how the difference between average and excellence in our lives and careers is 15 Minutes at the beginning and end of our day. There is great power in how we start our day and end our day. If we just find 15 minutes a day to get organized and plan, usually at the beginning or at the end of the day, we’re going to work smarter and faster because we have been intentional about how we spend our time.</span></p>

“Organize Your Digital World Now!” with Marcia Ramsland
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Your digital space is your computer files, your email, and your online marketing presence. And for most of us, it’s probably as big of a problem, if not bigger, than the problem with our physical space. Many self-employed entrepreneurs are working out of coffee shops, so it’s not the physical space as much as it is all that junk on our computer. Digital clutter is just as bad as space clutter because it mentally slows your brain down, hurts your productivity, and can lead to costly mistakes.</span></p>

“Your Workspace - A Distraction or a Productivity Boost?” with Marcia Ramsland
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">When the space around you is clear, your productivity jumps dramatically, and you’ll save time. It’s a beautiful transition when we can get our space, and our mind, organized. Productivity launches and you can move into new areas as you grow. It’s like a pyramid: the base is organization. But that’s never the goal; it’s only the tool, and it moves you up to progressively greater productivity. When you organize your space, it clears your mind and helps everything move faster. The faster the pace of your life the more organized you need to be.</span></p>

“Why Motivation is Overrated” with Joanna Jast
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Joanna Jast says motivation is overrated. Why? Because it’s fickle, it comes and goes. Some days we have tons of motivation, some days we don’t have any. Unfortunately, life doesn’t work like that. We all have commitment and deadlines, and we’ve got to get ourselves going, focus and get things done. That’s why we need to create systems that run on autopilot, so we don’t have to rely on unreliable motivation.</span></p>

“The Greatest Enemy (and Ally) of Your Focus” with Joanna Jast
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Joanna Jast says your environment is the biggest enemy and greatest ally of your focus. The physical environment includes things like the quality of your workstation, the level of ambient noise, and the technology that can unintentionally take control of our attention. All of these areas can be our biggest enemy, or they can become our greatest ally in keeping our focus if we learn to control them properly.</span></p>

“Targeting and Solving Your Focus Problem” with Joanna Jast
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Joanna Jast says when you build your solution to your focus problem, it’s imperative to understand the uniqueness of your individual problem, and then create a solution that is equally unique. It has to be in your context and meaningful to you. Your strategy has to take into consideration who you are, what you do, your habits and tendencies, and what you like and don’t like, for it to be truly meaningful and productive.</span></p>

“Your UNIQUE Focus Problem” with Joanna Jast
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Joanna Jast says many people have problems staying focused. And if you start implementing other people’s solutions, even if they are the best in the world, you’re going to get other people’s answers to other people’s problems. That’s why it’s important to understand what your unique focus problem is, and it’s many layers, because the uniqueness of your focus problem is the key to defining what is wrong with you, and the key fixing it.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Tom Schwab gives advice on how to find or create a mastermind. He says a good mastermind is like a good card game: nobody knows about it and it’s hard to get into. But if you make yourself known you’re looking are interested becoming part of a mastermind, most of the time you’ll get invited to one.

“The Benefits of a Mastermind” with Tom Schwab
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Tom Schwab talks about thebenefits of a mastermind. None of us know our blind spots. If weknew them, they wouldn’t be blind spots. Big businesses have aboard of directors but for small business and individuals, youdon’t have a group that can offer wisdom & accountability.That’s where a mastermind comes in. In a mastermind, you wantpeople to be honest with you, and as long as it’s said in love andrespect, you want those people to give their opinion. Clarity andpeace lay on the opposite side of a tough 10-minuteconversation.</span></p>

“Masterminds 101” with Tom Schwab
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Tom Schwab talks about the basic principles involved in creating and belonging to a mastermind. The original intent of a mastermind was a group of like-minded people sharing ideas and resources, trusting in each other. Sometimes people get confused when they say, “I’m part of a mastermind led by this famous person, and we all come in and learn from them.” That’s group coaching, not a mastermind. A mastermind is a long-term commitment because the more you get to know people and trust in and understand them, the more value it brings. A mastermind is a relationship marathon, not a sprint. It’s not just a season or a trial but something you commit to on an on-going basis.</span></p>

“Playing Big” with Tara Mohr
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Tara Mohr provides real, practical tools to help us quiet self-doubt, identify our callings, “unhook” from praise and criticism, unlearn counterproductive habits, and begin taking bold action. Today Dave recaps episodes 436-439 where Tara shares from her book, “Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead”</span></p>

“Getting Wise About Fear” with Tara Mohr
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Tara Mohr reminds us that, when we are starting to play bigger in our lives or careers, we will have to make some courageous decisions in line with our dreams and aspirations. And that’s when fear is going to come knocking. When we try to eliminate fear or somehow leapfrog over our fear that sets up unrealistic expectations and is unfair to ourselves.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Instead, we want to get wise about what fear is, and what do we do when it comes up. Tara gives us a primer on the two kinds of fear in our lives and gives us the tools to identify what kind of fear we are facing.</span></p>

“See Feedback In a New Way” with Tara Mohr
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Tara Mohr says there is a link between the criticism that most hurts us and the negative beliefs we hold about ourselves. Likewise, there’s a relationship between the praise we most seek and the things that our insecurities tell us. So it’s not so much the “words” as it is how I attach them to what I am already feeling inside. The story tends to be about us.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">One of the most powerful ways we can have a more useful relationship to praise and criticism is always to look at feedback and say, “What does that tell me about the person, or the people, giving the feedback?” Remember that feedback always shows you information about the person giving the feedback and it doesn’t necessarily tell you information about yourself.</span></p>

“Discover Your Inner Mentor” with Tara Mohr
<p><span class="c1">Author Tara Mohr talks about those rare moments in our lives when we have a clear, wise intuition or thought, and we see the solution. We have those moments here or there, but we can’t easily access that part of ourselves consistently. The "inner mentor" is a tool that allows us to access that wisest part of ourselves much more reliably.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

“You Don’t Need More Confidence” with Tara Mohr
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Tara Mohr says you don’t necessarily need more confidence. Rather, it’s about changing your relationship with self-doubt. Regardless of the level of success we achieve in our careers, even the most successful of us have a vocal and vicious inner critic. Even though we may think we don’t have it in “that area of my life,” it’s likely to show up in another area, as in my feelings about my body, or about how I am as a parent, son or daughter. The inner critic can show up in any arena of our lives.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">It’s important that we learn how to live with it and manage it because it will limit our greatest game-changing, innovative work as an entrepreneur. It can even motivate us to do the wrong kind of work that keeps us playing small.</span></p>

“Will It Fly?” with Pat Flynn
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">So you have a great idea for a business? But will that idea ultimately translate into a real product that will solve someone’s problems enough for them to pay for it? That’s where testing that idea comes in.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On this episode, Dave recaps episodes 431-434 where Pat Flynn talked about business strategies from his new book, “Will It Fly? How to Test Your Next Business Idea So You Don't Waste Your Time and Money.”</span></p>

“Validate Your Solution” with Pat Flynn
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author and entrepreneur Pat Flynn says, once you find a solution to the problems of others, you then have to validate that solution. People will say what you want to hear sometimes, but when it comes down to it, whether that idea is going to work out depends if they will actually pay for it.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Everyone most likely already has an “idea” in their head. However, those plans can change into something completely different because they align finally with the problems their target audience has. And it’s not always going to be the same idea you had initially. Many times the validation of your idea will take you somewhere completely different from what your initial idea was - and that’s a good thing.</span></p>

“Dig Into Your Market” with Pat Flynn
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author and entrepreneur Pat Flynn says a great business serves others. That means we first have to know who those “other” people are. The first step is to see who else is out there serving that target audience. The goal for your business is to stand out of the crowd and be different, but how do you know what that means unless you know who else is standing around you.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">You can discover this by creating your Market Map, which is an excellent exercise whether you’re just starting out in business or whether you’ve been doing it for awhile because it gives you a bird’s-eye perspective on your market that most people who are in that market don’t even have.</span></p>

And that starts making a big difference in your personal life going forward.</span></p>

All of these people have crafted a life around these three qualities: Joy, Money, and Flow.</span></p>

“Keep The Batteries Charged” with Anne Grady
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">We give a lot of lip service to taking care of yourself. For example, if your battery on your phone was down to 10% what would you do? You would quickly charge it.

“Boost Your EQ” with Anne Grady
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Your EQ, or emotional quotient is very different from your IQ. It’s a way to measure your level emotional intelligence. Think about all of the characteristics of a phenomenal friend, leader, or confidant, then think about the traits of a horrible one. What you’ll probably realize is none of their characteristics has anything to do with the person’s intelligence, but rather their emotional intelligence. Your IQ is important because it’s the reason we get into school, finish school, get a job, etc.  But it’s your emotional intelligence that is more likely to dictate your success than any other factor. Your EQ is your ability to understand your strengths, weaknesses, triggers, and blind spots, and be able to empathize with others and understand their emotional state. More importantly, it’s the ability to use that information to guide the way you act and behave.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Anne Grady says you don’t lose time generally in huge chunks, we don’t look up and 2 hours have gone by.

It’s like springing a leak, it’s not going to sink your boat all at once but eventually it gets pretty difficult to cover-up all the holes. It’s important to become very deliberate about the small chunks of your time you’re wasting, and how you can focus your time and attention.</span></p>

“Forget the Idea of Balance” with Anne Grady
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Anne Grady says the idea of “balance” is antiquated. It was first introduced in the 18th and 19th centuries when people were working 16 hours a day, six days a week. Hopefully, our life has changed (if you are working that much it’s time to rethink some things.) Our goal should not be to be balanced. Our goal should be to identify our priorities, spend time focusing on those priorities, and not to feel guilty about doing so.</span></p>

“Now Matters” with Peter Voogd
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Bestselling author Peter Voogd talks about why NOW matters in attaining the success you’ve dreamed of. The #1 reason people aren’t achieving the success they’re truly capable of is they’ve never told themselves NOW matters. This ‘someday’ mentality is killing so many dreams and goals. In fact, Peter puts it near the top of the list of reasons why our society is filled with regret, frustration, stress, and unfulfilled potential. Unfortunately a lot of people live on "Someday Isle." “Someday I'll be successful…" Get off the "Someday I'll" island. Expect more for yourself and understand that if you want to be successful it starts with urgency and understanding now matters more than ever.</span></p>

“The Emotions of Time Management” with Rory Vaden
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Rory Vaden says everything you know about time management is wrong. Time management isn't logical, it's emotional.

“Become a Time Multiplier” with Rory Vaden
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Rory Vaden talks about the problem with most time management strategies…that prioritizing doesn't create more time.

The old way of thinking only fosters an inappropriate amount of weight on urgency - what matters now - which then puts us in a state of stress from the start. Rory introduces a new, innovative concept of learning how to “multiply your time” today, and create even more time for you tomorrow.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Professional organizer Alison Kero talks about what tends to keep us stuck when we're trying to become more organized, and what we can do to move past the indecisiveness. For example: keeping something you're never going to use, thinking that "one day" it might come in handy, which then gives you permission to make no real decisions.

“Becoming A Person of Influence: Listening” with Tarun Stevenson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Tarun Stevenson says we should start being mindful and aware when we are in a conversation with others. Ask yourself, “Who’s voice do I hear most often?” Are you thinking about your next reply, or are you engaging with what the other person is saying? Most people’s words don’t reflect what’s on the inside or what they are experiencing emotionally. When we listen, we see past their words and get to the real person.</span></p>

“Becoming a Person of Influence: Faith in Others” with Tarun Stevenson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Tarun Stevenson says having faith in people goes beyond just speaking words of encouragement, or just thinking well of someone. It’s about putting into action those beliefs. Your actions follow your beliefs about who that person can be. You have to follow through and treat people the way you say and the way you believe they can be. Most people will respond to the level of expectation you put in front of them.</span></p>

It can be a sizable investment of time, but it’s about the long-term goal. Do you want these people in your life for a long time? Then you need to take the time and invest in them. It’s about being able to look into the future and say, “This person could be better than they are now, and I can be the person that helps them get there.”</span></p>

“Becoming a Person of Influence: Integrity” with Tarun Stevenson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Tarun Stevenson says integrity is what you do when no one is looking. It’s being able to do the right thing and developing the habit of being honest in your conduct, speech, and attitudes even when you are not being held accountable. We all have areas in our life where we could do better concerning our integrity. We practice the small acts of integrity when no one is looking, then when we’re called on for the big acts of integrity; we’ve already made it a habit in our lives.</span></p>

“Retirement isn't an age, it's a number” with Chris Hogan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Chris Hogan wants us to understand one key fact: retirement has nothing to do with your age, it has everything to do with a financial number.

“Retirement starts with the dream” with Chris Hogan
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Chris Hogan says it’s important for all of us to understand the power of our dreams. We all have things we want to do, and it’s important to tap into them because dreams are a better motivator than fear. Fear will motivate you for a little while, but it doesn’t last. Why?

“How to Connect Emotionally With Others” with Jason Treu
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Jason Treu says you can build relationships much faster than you think if you connect with people emotionally. People have had tons of bad interactions, and typically those interactions have consisted of the same old boring questions. If you meet someone in a professional setting people always ask you, “What do you do?” and it’s boring. Instead, ask people about what they love and what they are emotionally connected to, because everyone is emotional. Lead with emotional questions because when you get down to what someone cares about, you get to know them a lot better than you normally would.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Andrea Waltz talks about staying persistent in embracing and even pursuing “no.” Successful people fail eagerly while failures avoid failing.

She wants us to be aware of how many times we get a “no,” and even set goals and celebrate how many times we will hear “no.” Tracking your frequency of “no” gives you an awareness of how you are doing and enables you to make adjustments in your message. And celebrating them is a way to make it fun. Remember, the more times you hear “no,” the more times you’ll hear “yes.”</span></p>

“Intentionally Get a NO” with Andrea Waltz
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Andrea Waltz encourages us to intentionally increase our failure rate, go out and hear “no” more often. When we overcome our fear of hearing “no,” things happen, and opportunities fall into our lap that might never have happened otherwise. Establishing “no goals” tends to drive our activity up, which creates more opportunities for us to hear a “yes.”</span></p>

“Changing Your Definition of Failure” with Andrea Waltz
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Andrea Waltz encourages us to give ourselves permission to fail. When you change your mental model of how you view failure, seeing it as a stepping stone between you and success, it changes what is possible. Usually, we equate hearing the word “no” with a failure, so it’s about seeing the word “no” as a space between you and the “yes.” Instead of giving up when you hear “no,” just increase your “no’s,” and when you do the “yes’” will come.</span></p>

“Mind Hacking” with Sir John Hargrave
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Your brain is like a computer. It’s like the central processing unit for your body, mind, emotions…everything you are and do. And just like a computer, sometimes we need to change the programming to get the results we’re looking for. On today’s show, Dave recaps episodes 371-374 where Sir John Hargrave shares proven hacks that can help you change the way you think and make you more productive, positive, and happier.</span></p>

“Create a Dynamic Future” with Sir John Hargrave
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Sir John Hargrave walks us through the process of setting and achieving compelling goals. It’s about imagining what you want to do with your life. Think about how important it is to figure out for yourself where you want to end up. It’s amazing how little time we all spend doing that. Instead, we just float wherever the tides of life take us. But when you start to become the master of your ship there’s no limit to what you can do.</span></p>

“Crank Up Your Confidence” with Sir John Hargrave
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Sir John Hargrave says we have what he calls “loops,” or ongoing, habitual messages we tell ourselves. Usually, they’re just below the level of conscious awareness, embedded in our operating system. He shares a trick to help us develop more awareness of those loops, helping us find the ones that are preventing us from getting where we want to go. We can then reprogram those loops with their more positive alternative.</span></p>

“Crack Down on Distractions” with Sir John Hargrave
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">There’s no end to the digital distractions that surround us. And research shows that the more distracted you are and the more you try to multitask, the less you get done. If you want to be effective and live up to your full potential, get rid of those distractions. Turn it all off and you’ll be more focused and happier.</span></p>

“Develop Jedi Focus” with Sir John Hargrave
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Studies show that meditation makes you healthier, makes your relationships better, and makes you calmer and more focused. Sir John Hargrave teaches a concentration hack to strengthen that “top-down” attention to make ourselves better able to stay focused on the things we want, like our tasks at work. It also helps us resist those “bottom-up” interruptions like random thoughts and text messages that jump out at us constantly.</span></p>

“Activate Your Brain” with Scott Halford
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Your brain is the center of who you are. It controls your body, your health, your focus and more. If you want more from it, you have to give it what it needs. On today’s show, Dave recaps lessons Scott Halford shared on Episodes 366-369 from his book, “Activate Your Brain: How Understanding Your Brain Can Improve Your Work - and Your Life”</span></p>

“How to Fuel Up Your Brain” with Scott Halford
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Scott Halford talks about the impact food and exercise have on the health of our brain. Our body manufactures none of the nutrients our brain needs to operate well every day, they all come from food, water, and exercise. On today’s show, you’ll learn how your body and brain are linked and why, when you are constantly in a high stressed situation, the result is usually physical sickness. You’ll also learn a simple breathing technique that can reset the stress response in our brain. You’ll also learn the single most important thing you can do for your brain.</span></p>

“Your Brain Needs Sleep” with Scott Halford
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Scott Halford says when it comes to the health of your brain, the captain of the ship is sleep. Whether you feel like you have time for it or not, your brain needs you to rest. You severely limit your ability to concentrate and focus when you don’t get enough sleep, and a chronic lack of sleep can even lead to dementia. Sleep is an eraser of stress, and it’s also a consolidator. It allows us to download and consolidate all the thoughts and memories from the day, so we become smarter when we sleep.</span></p>

“Say Goodbye to Distractions” with Scott Halford
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Our whole world is busy, complicated and filled with distractions. The temptation is to multitask in order to get it all done. But our brains don’t operate that way. You can only have one conscious thought at a time – that’s it. Multi-tasking is a myth. You can quickly switch between two things, but instead of getting two things done at once, you'll only be doing two things unwell. Author Scott Halford says it’s important to manage the distractions if accuracy and excellence are crucial to the task at hand. Turn of everything that can pop-up into your visual perspective.</span></p>

“Change Your Relationship With Stress” with Scott Halford
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Scott Halford says how you look at something can predict how your body responds to it. If you have a big proposal coming up and “sigh,” that’s an indication you’re telling yourself, “This sucks and I don’t want to do it.” But if you have a “bring it on!” attitude it can be very energizing. You will begin to have a different relationship with the things that stress you out. Your mindset does matter. You’re feeding your brain either with a positive or negative message. Your brain is going to respond to that priming, and you will act accordingly.</span></p>

“Leading with Intention” with Mindy Hall
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dave shares his thoughts based on his conversation this week with Dr. Mindy Hall. Leadership doesn’t happen by accident; it happens because you take the time to know who you are and how you want to lead. Others won’t just “get it,” you have to present who you are and lead with intention.</span></p>

“Shaping a Culture or Letting Culture Shape You” with Mindy Hall
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dr. Mindy Hall talks about how an organization’s culture is one of the most powerful levers leaders have for impacting performance. Culture is the social energy built over time that can move people to act or impede them from acting. An organization’s culture is never neutral; it will develop by design or default. The question for leaders then is whether they will actively shape their organization’s culture, or allow themselves to be shaped by it. Culture is not a program that gets implemented; it is built through everyday actions and messaging.</span></p>

“Managing the Story of You” with Mindy Hall
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dr. Mindy Hall talks about what we all know, that perception is reality. Leaders often say, “I’ll let my hard work speak for itself.” That’s a nice sentiment, but the reality is that hard work often doesn’t speak for itself (or at least it doesn’t tell the whole story). You have to speak for your hard work. Hard work can never stand alone as the indicator of ability; to think otherwise is naïve and self-defeating. You must actively shape the perception others have of you and your abilities, not in a self-aggrandizing way, but in a way that does not leave the story of you to be shaped by others.</span></p>

“Choose Your Impact” with Mindy Hall
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dr. Mindy Hall talks about how every interaction is an opportunity. Every action has an impact. Every moment is a choice. Are you choosing the impact you want to have? Often, leaders are rushing from meeting to meeting with no real sense of what they’re walking into or the contribution they want to make. This leaves both the outcomes of the meeting and their own performance to chance. They miss the opportunity to lead from a conscious state and intentionally shape how others perceive them as a leader.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

“Notice Yourself” with Mindy Hall
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dr. Mindy Hall says from experience that nearly 80 percent of leaders do not lead intentionally. They are bright, capable leaders that operate out of intuition, pattern, and reaction. Some do so with very strong results, but those who make the decision to be more self-aware and intentional achieve higher-level results than those who continue to operate primarily from intuition. Developing this aptitude is possible and begins the moment you look in the mirror and begin the process of understanding how you show up, how you affect a room, and what environment you create. In short: notice yourself.</span></p>

“It’s Time to THRIVE” with Clay Clark
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">So many of us are barely surviving. That’s no way to live. You don’t have to put up with merely surviving when you can thrive. On today’s show, Dave recaps episodes 356-359 and his highly energetic and entertaining conversations with author Clay Clark, as he shares lessons from his book, “Thrive: How to Take Control of Your Destiny and Move Beyond Surviving... Now!”</span></p>

“Anniversaries at Waffle House” with Clay Clark
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Clay Clark talks about avoiding the creation of an uninspiring vision. If you are in the “Waffle House” (explained in the episode) of business, self-employment, or your career right now, you have to get out of there. You need to move on and create a vision that inspires you, then commit to getting there. It might take you five years, but you need to start with a vision for your life.</span></p>

“The Power of Meta Time” with Clay Clark
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author & Entrepreneur Clay Clark talks about how important it is to schedule a time to think and plan. Schedule "meta-time" each day.  Take a timeout to get out of where you are and think above and beyond your current circumstances. Think about where you want to be in the distant future so you can take small, consistent steps toward it.</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

“Duplicating Your Day” with Clay Clark
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author & Entrepreneur Clay Clark says the success or failure of a person can be found in their daily schedule. In addition to being a meticulous time manager, Clay says we need to have these three things together: A file system, a process, and an appointed time for action. And if you lack in any of these areas, start focusing on becoming the best you can be in that field.</span></p>

“Your Daily Checklist” with Clay Clark
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Clay Clark says you need to have more rocks in your schedule (you’ll understand what a “rock” is as you listen to the show.) His point is to fill up our schedule with the things that mean the most, rather than to allow our time to be filled with small distractions that keep us from accomplishing our big goals.</span></p>

“Equilibrium Zero” with Jeff Sanders
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author and podcaster Jeff Sanders shows us why it’s important to reach what he calls “equilibrium zero.” That’s a state where you are working from a very clean space. You want to achieve the simplicity of only working on one thing at a time, and that only happens when things are clean and organized. You then get to that state where you can say, “I have processed everything around me so now I can give all of myself to my next task.”</span></p>

“The IDEAL Morning Routine” with Jeff Sanders
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Jeff Sanders talks about how to structure our morning routine to help us dominate our day. The actual routine begins the night before. Decide what time you want to go to bed to wake up when you want. You can choose whatever focus you want with your early mornings but having a philosophy or a strategy is important because it helps to know what you want your mornings to mean to you. Knowing your morning objective is important so you can then plan the exact habits you need to accomplish your goals.</span></p>

By the end of the year, you have forgotten most of the goals you set at the beginning of the year, or you’re scrambling to get them done at the last minute. On this episode, Jeff Sanders gives us an alternative to annual goal setting that is much more effective.</span></p>

“Create an Inspiring Vision” with Honoree Corder
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Honoree Corder gives us the first step to creating a compelling, inspiring vision. Your vision is the less concrete, less defined thing you want. Your vision is the energy and driving purpose behind your goals. When you set your intention, when you have a vision of how you want to feel some day, it can feel a little indefinable. But you still commit to moving in that direction the best you know how. You then identify the first goal you can see based on where you want to go.</span></p>

“Big Hairy Audacious Goals” with Honoree Corder
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Honoree Corder talks about why we need to set big goals. Really big goals.

“Plan A and ONLY Plan A” with Honoree Corder
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Honoree Corder talks about committing ourselves to Plan A without a backup Plan B. A backup plan offers us another option when Plan A gets tough. But there is some providence that steps in that will help you to find your way when you unrelentingly commit to your goal. You will meet the right people. You will come across the right piece of information. When you trust the fact that you’ve made the right decision for yourself, and you’re moving forward, and you just keep walking. If you are 100 percent committed, then you will get where you want to go.</span></p>

“Short-Term Massive Action” with Honoree Corder
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Honoree Corder talks about how short-term massive action can change our ability to reach our goals. The problem isn’t necessarily that we don’t know what to do, it’s that we want more of what we want RIGHT NOW. So we give up what we want later for what we want right now. We want instant gratification, yet real results don’t happen that way. They happen one day, one choice at a time.</span></p>

“Rethink Happiness” with Anne Grady
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Anne Grady shows us how to rethink what it means to be happy. We often think we must achieve something new to be happy: “If I get a master's degree I’ll be happy,” “If I get married I’ll be happy,”  or “If I get this car I’ll be happy.” The reality is that you can achieve all of your dreams and still not be happy. You’re never always a certain emotion, and it’s really about taking time to acknowledge the good ones when they happen so that you can make it through the bad ones. If you chose to dwell on all of the negative things, you’re going to find them all the time. Life has ups and downs, and you get to choose where you want to focus.</span></p>

“Define Success” with Anne Grady
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Most of us don’t aim too high and miss our goals. Most of us aim too low and achieve them. We don’t want to think about what could be possible because the next thought is, “Well I don’t know how I would do that.” So we settle, and that’s how we get stuck. Defining success means you have to let yourself dream big and identify what you want your ideal life to look like, then start making choices based on that. What you think about, you create; and if you are thinking about a definition of success, you’re more likely to take steps to create it rather than just react out of instinct.</span></p>

“Get Unstuck” with Anne Grady
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Author Anne Grady talks about how to get unstuck. Perhaps some people see a beam of light and hear angels singing, and magically pull themselves out of being stuck. But for most of us it’s about taking it little chunks at a time and figuring out how to get out of the ruts we’ve gotten ourselves into. It’s very easy to settle into routines and get comfortable, but if we stay there, we don’t grow.</span></p>

“Realize Your Courage” with Anne Grady
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Habits are a benefit in our lives. They keep us from having to think about certain tasks we perform regularly. You don’t have to think about how to brush your teeth because it’s a habit. Our thought patterns can also become habits. And if those thoughts are negative and limiting, we begin to find reasons to support the message, and they become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Today Anne Grady helps us find our courage, overcome those negative thought habits and allow ourselves to move forward.</span></p>

“How to Break ANY Power Struggle” with Dr. Rob Pennington
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">We might have different values or goals. Perhaps we have the same perception of the facts and maybe we have the same goal, but we have different ways we want to get there. That constitutes a difference of opinion. Often, it’s a difference of opinion that turns into a power struggle – who can yell the loudest, who can be the most threatening. Dr. Rob Pennington teaches us how to overcome any power struggle with a simple negotiating question.</span></p>

“Find the Agreement Hiding In Every Misunderstanding” with Dr. Rob Pennington
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dr. Rob Pennington says 75-80% of conflicts are because of a misunderstanding. If you realize that and discover the misunderstanding, the disagreement goes away, and you come to an agreement. Perhaps you just could not see the agreement because you believed the misunderstanding to be correct.</span></p>

“Conflict Is Not Personal (It's Just Difficult)” with Dr. Rob Pennington
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Dr. Rob Pennington teaches us to recognize that conflict, while difficult, is not personal. Isn’t it true that the person you are in conflict with would be the way they are whether you’re there or not. If you realize that simple fact, then you realize it’s not personal. It has more to do with the way they have learned to behave or their values, etc. That’s valuable information if you want to have influence.</span></p>

We end up having all these bits of information swirling around in our heads and scattered in a million different places all at the same time.

Instead, what we need is a desire to change, combined with a cohesive strategy to apply the proper skills required for long-term success.</span></p>

“Willpower is Not Enough” with Kerry Patterson
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Willpower is not the answer to creating change in your life. Kerry Patterson says when you have lasting problems and you’ve tried and tried, willpower is not enough. That’s where skill comes into play.  When you learn how to bring certain skills into play, depending on what challenges you are facing, you are 10x more likely to create lasting change.</span></p>
