Rank #1: “Taming your Critical Inner Voice” with Kim Ades

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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.

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. And while that vision might be apparent to that person, the rest of the organization can be oblivious. That puts the heretic in a challenging situation: they are offering opportunities and solutions to problems that others can't see.

Rank #9: “How do we build self-love?” with Daniel Packard

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #12: “Start Saying No” with Joe Calloway

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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.

It starts with finding the things that energize us so much that it’s easy to manage our time and be productive.

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. But we don’t have a charging station for ourselves. If we are not healthy, if we’re not well mentally, physically and emotionally, we cannot be a source of support and strength for others and we can’t be effective.

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.

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.

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.

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.

And celebrating them is a way to make it fun. Remember, the more times you hear “no,” the more times you’ll hear “yes.”

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.
