Episode 148 FEARS of Friday the 13th

September 13, 2019

The freaks come out at night. The freaks come out at night. 

Scary people the crazies the freaks come out. On Friday, the 13th, and especially when it's a full moon.

What are the fears that have been conditioned into us? "Fears are educated into us. And if we wish if you wish, can be educated out of us can be educated out of you." 

Maybe you fear you fear someone on your team, that you can't trust them. And you have this emotion, you have this visceral reaction that creates an energy within you. And you're going to act from that emotion versus examining your thinking first. IF I fear what someone may do, and I have this emotion, I'm going to treat you a certain way if that's you. I'm going to withhold myself from you my best from you as a leader.

I share a formula to help you overcome your FEARS.

August 23, 2019

Give me the respect that I deserve.  You don't deserve respect. You earn it. Respect is earned. It's not deserved.

It pains me when I hear a leader just say I want my people to respect me, they need to respect me more. I'm the leader, I'm the boss, I'm the owner of the company. I'm The CEO and the President I'm the C-Suite this, I'm the VP of that. And I'm here to tell you that does not matter. Your title does not matter.

You put your pants on just like the people that you lead. Now maybe you went and you got an education, Good for you. Maybe you went and you got a certification, good for you. It doesn't matter.

Let a person radically alter their thoughts, and he/she will be astonished at the rapid transformation it will have on the effect in the material conditions
of his/her life. We imagine that thoughts can be kept secret, but they cannot, they rapidly crystallize into habit. And habit solidifies into circumstance.

Episode 141 9 Keys to Make Wednesday Perfect

Episode 141 9 Keys to Make Wednesday Perfect

August 7, 2019

I'm going to find what I focus on so, expect great things to happen. If you, if you expect bad things to happen if you expect to have miscommunications with people on your team or people in your life or people in your home, that's what you're going to get.

Your brain acts like that servo-mechanism, just like in that plane you can put the coordinates in every single day, you put the coordinates and sometimes it's out of habit just out of routine. You get up and you just kind of do the same thing every single day, but I'm challenging you to one wake up. 

Make it a regular routine for yourself every day. Put one new idea into your mind every single day. And when you do that, the the compound effect of that over time will pay off.

So you have untapped potential. But you've got to be intentional about tapping into it. You have gotta stick to your goals. Nothing good in the world comes from quitting. In the face of resistance.

Episode 140 5 Ways to Jump Start Your Leadership

Episode 140 5 Ways to Jump Start Your Leadership

July 30, 2019

Use your perception, you may say well, I'm not very perceptive. Some people are, some people aren't, This is a skill that can be developed. 

What I want you to do is to perceive and learn, learn to see the needs around you, learn to see the problems around you. And the opportunities, there are to lead. 

Don't just point the problems out. Don't sit around and criticize the problems, get up and do something about it. But you gotta learn to be perceptive about it. See, most people are just perceptive about things that they don't have, we kind of hang on to our, our weaknesses, we hang on to the negative things that we say about ourselves, between our ears.

We have to learn to ask questions. Where can I support you? What Have you tried so far? What Have you done that's worked? What Have you done that hasn't work? Where can my experience I have work and how can I support you in that? What can I do to help you? Who can I connect you with?

Seeing this is using your supportive strengths, versus trying to fix the problems or do it for them and like me becoming impatient because they don't take action as most people wait. They're waiting on someone to do it , and I like doing things for everybody, what I want to do is teach them how to do it, and then let them own it, and move forward in that.
