Spiritual Foundations If you’re like most people, you were raised with an understanding of The Golden Rule, “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12) Regardless of your belief system, you have to admit that this is a pretty solid idea. But does it apply to governments as well as individuals? In this episode Sean and I have an provocative discussion that is sure to raise the hackles of more than a few people.

Rank #2: How To Get Free Podcast Listeners From Apple and Other Media Giants.
So here's the deal…you have a podcast and now you need listeners. By now you’ve discovered that it takes more than putting your show up on iTunes and expecting subscribers to just come out of the woodwork and become raving fans. One of the easiest ways to get those listeners is to have Apple, Google, Overcast, Stitcher, and other giant media platforms send you listeners for free…listeners who want EXACTLY what you have to offer on your show. This week my guest Daniel J. Lewis is going to show you exactly how to do that very thing. Click here to download or listen to this episode now. Spiritual Foundations Peace Is a Weapon “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7) Fear is the enemy of faith. Fear is slavery, the Un-Maker, the Adversary, and the Resistance. Fear wants us to live in bondage to the past (guilt and shame) and even the future (depression and anxiety) – but God wants us to live in the freedom of His love and power in the present. Paul wrote, “For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.'” (Romans 8:15) To be the person God calls us to be, we must conquer fear. But what weapon can empower us to do that? This is a spiritual battle, and it can only be won with spiritual weapons. Peace is the weapon that defeats fear. Jesus told His followers, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) The apostle Paul told the persecuted Christians in Rome, “The God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.” (Romans 16:20) The peace of God is our weapon against fear and Satan. Before going to the cross, Jesus told His disciples, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27). Fear is a natural response to adversity. Peace is the supernatural response that God gives us by His grace. Just as Jesus has authority over the wind and waves, He has authority over the storms in our lives. He has authority over our doubts, fears, and shame. “…as He is, so are we in this world.” (1 John 4:17) And Jesus is now “seated … in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.” (Ephesians 1:20-23) Doubts, depression, anxiety, fear, and shame are the weapons of the Great Enemy. Take hold of the peace God has already provided for you today. Tip of the Week I've been doing a lot of photography and post-photographic processing of late. And I just rediscovered something that's been around for a while…Adobe Lightroom for mobile. It allows you to access, edit, organize, and share photos on your iPad, iPhone, or Android device. Changes sync seamlessly, so updates are available from the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC desktop app, or from your Lightroom account on the web. Note: Syncing to Lightroom CC on the desktop and the web requires a Lightroom CC trial or a paid Adobe Creative Cloud membership.

Rank #1: ITL269: One Little Thing That Keeps People from Success.
In this episode, we discuss the impact one seemingly small thing has on our ability to move forward in our careers. Taking offense can keep you from success. When we take offense, it only produces a feeling. You ultimately choose whether you take offense to something or brush it off. Offended people often feed off their offense and their anger builds over time—and no one likes to be around angry people. This is a societal problem on a lot of fronts. We live in a world that is increasingly obsessed with how people feel. Leaders who have proven their common sense and value can no longer make decisions without threats and demands from people who take offense. While we are entitled to our own opinions, we aren’t entitled to our own facts. Tune in to hear the story of a high school that had to change their mascot because it was potentially offensive. You can also hear more from Andy by subscribing to his new podcast, The Professional Noticer. Just go to AndyAndrews.com/podcast for details. Do you have a question for Andy?

Rank #2: ITL226: Are You Just Raising Great Kids, or Great Kids Who Will Become Great Adults?.
On this week’s episode, I answer a listener question on balancing between our work lives and family lives. Sometimes to get a balance in your life, you have to fall out of balance a little bit. You’re going to have to go over to the other side to get it balanced. Don’t be afraid to move swiftly and make things happen quickly. I see just as many families knocked out of balance by little league, basketball, and soccer as I do from Dad working. Answer the question, “What do we want to happen?” Define what you’re after. What do we want it to look like? When Austin was playing baseball, it was hard for all four of us to get together. A lot of people would say, “Well, are we not going to let them play this? All their friends are playing. Everybody is playing.” Let me remind you what your momma used to say. “You aren’t everybody.” The end result of what everybody is doing can be a pretty average result. If you think that allowing one child to play one sport is worth scattering your family to the edges of the earth for the majority of the year, you’re not doing anybody a favor. When you figure out what you want to be, you can get clear on your priorities. My family knows they are my priority. Sometimes, for a week or so, the priority is to lock myself in a closet and write, but that is only a means to an end and not the end. In almost every area of life, it’s the communication that is the key. You can intentionally engage your time and energy to create who you are to your family and create what they remember. Because you can create who you are, and because you can create how they remember, you are creating who they will become. Tune in to hear examples of how we set expectations during family time and how you can clearly communicate when exceptions must be made. Questions for Andy Would you like to run something by Andy?

Rank #2: I'm Stuck and I Don't Know What to Do.
Welcome to the View from the Top podcast, Season 2. Today, Aaron Walker discusses I’m stuck and I don’t know what to do. We will go on a journey with Aaron while he is earning his pilot's license. We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode and learn more at viewfromthetop.com. Getting Stuck Aaron wanted to learn how to fly and started lessons. They started to do full power stalls which causes it to break left. Aaron let go of the throttle and grabbed the yoke which caused the plane to stall. His instructor told him not to let go but Aaron did on the next stall. At this point the plane quits and Aaron was stuck. The airplane would not start; the instructor had cut the fuel selector switch off to prove a point. They ended up trying to make an emergency landing on a golf course but the instructor pointed it straight done and ended up getting it started. “I said that thing would have worked a lot better if I hadn’t have been stuck and you would have told me what to do before we did the full power stalls I wouldn’t have been quite as nervous.” - Aaron Walker 4 Steps to Getting Yourself Unstuck When we get stuck we need better instruction- surround yourself with people who have the answers. “Get trusted advisors around you; be vulnerable, be transparent, be willing to say I don’t know and that will help you get unstuck.” - Aaron Walker We try to get back where we were at. Find a place that is even better. Strive to go forward and not back. Stop comparisons and change your mindset. Don’t compare yourself to your colleagues, friends or family. You will always feel like you don’t measure up if you continue to compare yourself. Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle or end. You will remain stuck. “You’re trying to prove something to somebody; maybe it’s yourself, maybe it’s your dad, maybe it’s a brother, maybe it’s somebody you need to prove yourself to. It gets you stuck. Stop doing that. You don’t have to prove yourself to anyone.” - Aaron Walker Take Action … Next Steps from the Show Today’s challenge is to get connected.

Rank #1: FL 131 – We help Kevin choose a direction for his online business.
Need help choosing the direction of your online business? Listening in on today's episode might give you ideas as we help our guest navigate through his business and get a clearer direction for it. Joining us on air this week is FYL community member, Kevin DeWit. Kevin is a father who has always been fascinated with music, so fascinated that he had learned and developed his music mostly by himself. He became the family’s sole provider after losing his wife to cancer and has since been raising his wonderful kids on his own. He has 2 children, a son with autism and a daughter, diagnosed with Asperger’s. Time constraints and other demands from working full-time as a Network Engineer are slowly burning him out, so his goal is to make it online and get the freedom to be there for his kids. He created KdWMixingMastering.com, where he offers mixing, mastering and audio restoration services to people (mostly artists) who need help in achieving that professional sound. His music-oriented business has a lot of room to grow, but the frustration from its current lack of stability has led him to consider shifting skill sets. He has the IT know-how that may earn him his family's needed income online, although he isn't exactly as passionate about it as he is with music. Torn between two skills and pressed for time, we're going to help Kevin weigh in his options and explore the possibilities of scaling his online business. Everyone in the business has gone through this phase where they are presented with a fork in the road. Everybody has to decide at some point, and sometimes all it takes is a little push in the right direction. Tune in and learn how today's episode can help you navigate through yours. Don't miss it!

Can’t Miss Moment: Today's can't miss moment is clearing off our schedule and taking our kids to the doctor. The past couple of days, the kids have not been feeling really well, and we were waiting around to see if we really needed to take them to the doctor. Today was the day that we thought we needed to do that. Sometimes it's kind of hard because we did have a couple of podcasts that we needed to record today, and we had to move those around and we don't like to do that. But it is so nice doing what we do now to actually have the flexibility to do that. We don't have to find somebody to fill in for us, we don't have to ask a boss or anything like that. We can just say, "Hey, I'm very sorry, we need to reschedule." Our community members are so awesome. They are totally understanding of that. You can connect with S&J on social media too!

So far, we only actually had one snow day here in Kentucky. But when we had that day, it was pretty awesome just to not have to worry about trying to find somebody to watch our kids, or having to take a day off work because the kids were at home. Instead, we were able to stay right here in the house, we didn't have to get out where it was cold and yucky, and it was super, super cold that day. Like, 10°F, something like that. It was nice just to hang out here. We did different things. We did a snow day packet with the kids. It's like work from school. It we were able to work on that with them. We played some computer games, because we're nerds like that. It was a great day. You can connect with S&J on social media too! Thank you for listening! Thanks again for listening to the show!

Rank #1: The Science Behind Success with John Mitchell—Episode 306 of The Action Catalyst Podcast.
John Mitchell’s 12-minute a day Think It Be It technique is recognized today as the “Top Practical Application in the World” of the legendary book Think and Grow Rich. When he applied his technique to his own life, he saw his income go to over $5 million a year. Previously, for 20 years as an entrepreneur, he earned low six figures a year. The 20-times difference happen because his daily technique significantly increased his control over himself, by probably double.It also made him laser-focused every day on only the 2 to 3 things that move the needle in his business. It also allowed him to rapidly evolve his “Strategy for Success.” He was simply operating every day at a higher level than he ever had before, and it showed up in his income. The science behind his technique was profiled in a Time magazine cover story.John started out as a CPA but became an entrepreneur at the age of 30. He owned companies in a variety of industries: real estate development, a bank, a restaurant, children’s book publishing company, and an automotive company. But upon reaching 50, he wasn’t as successful as he thought he should be. Then he found the top book on success and achievement ever written, Think and Grow Rich, with over 100 million copies sold. And John developed his 12-minute daily technique around the book’s central concept‚—“what you envision in detail on a daily basis is what shows up in your life.” A practical application, this legendary book didn’t exist before John created it. John’s company, Think It Be It, is the top company in the “Success through Science” category of the success and human achievement field.Visit theunfairedge.com for a free webinar from John.Show Highlights I saw that by applying science to my life, I was influencing my daily actions and thoughts. That was so impactful. —John Mitchell Only one in six people had even heard of the book Think and Grow Rich, and only one in 100 knew its central concept, yet everyone wants to be more successful. —John Mitchell We're all using an antiquated operating system to run our lives. We are innately geared toward survival, which causes 90% of your thoughts to be fear-based, you're reactive rather than proactive, and you have less than 20% control over yourself. This is exactly the opposite of how you need to be if you're productive, happy, and creative. —John Mitchell Logic doesn't matter at all to the subconscious mind. —John Mitchell Step away from your life today and write down the personal qualities you want for your life. Get that going and also what improvements would you like. —John MitchellJohn's final thoughts: Hard work is a given. That produces an average life. I'm a big advocate of hard work, but it doesn't create the exceptional life. I came to grips that I want the exceptional life and when I started doing it, I had the freedom to get up every day and do whatever I want and the sense of accomplishment. I'm passionate about helping other people because if you are blessed, you want to help other people. I want to share this with the world because it's so powerful and easy to implement.The Action Catalyst is a weekly podcast hosted by Dan Moore, President of Southwestern Advantage, the oldest direct-sales company in America, and Partner with Southwestern Consulting.

Rank #2: How to Get a Meeting with Anyone: An Interview with Stu Heinecke.
If you knew you would be 100% successful at getting an appointment with your ideal customer, what would that do for you? One meeting can change everything. What if you could to that 100 times, with 100% effectiveness? How long would it take for your business to be where you want it to be? If I told you that there is a way, would you believe me? It seems incredible, doesn’t it? But it’s true.What I am about to share will be embraced by only a few, even though many will want to answer the call. The approach I am about to detail will take courage to do because it is contrary to almost anything you’ve been told to do. You will know it’s right, but it won’t feel right. But it is.What if I told you that selling is similar to dating? That you must stand out and be perceived as different to attract attention and gain initial connection? Search your feelings, Luke. You know it to be true. So, join me on the fun side.One person who has proven these techniques is Stu Heinecke, a founder in a shadow movement that he calls “contact marketing.” On a recent interview with him, I was able to dig into some of the concepts he shares in his award-winning book, How To Get A Meeting With Anyone. Stu describes contact marketing as a way of sending something of meaning (intrinsic or extrinsic) that gains the attention of a prospect in order to obtain a meeting with them. You can use humor, wit, shock, and awe. The goal is to get your VIP to think, “I like the way this guy thinks!”Here are the basic steps Stu gives for using contact marketing.Step 1. Identify the VIP.Step 2. Call the executive assistant and make them aware that something special is going to be sent to the VIP. Gain their permission and buy in.Step 3. Send the details to the executive assistant.Step 4. Send a thank you to the executive assistant.Step 5. Send the VIP something that makes them say, “I like the way this person thinks!” Laughter can be useful. Also, materials that may seem synonymous with your value proposition or a struggle they may be going through. This can be anything from bacon band-aids, to personalized cartoons, to burner phones, even a carrier pigeon. Include a handwritten note.Step 6. Call the VIP, ask them if they received your contact piece, begin a conversation with them, and present your value. Ask for the appointment.Step 7. Repeat because you know that you’re magic!As a sales coach, I have proven this model.Here are two places I have used the concepts to gain market share. The first case happened out of frustration. I was having great difficulty gaining sales appointments with the otherwise friendly people of a community in Maine (our second destination). Nobody was letting me in. Finally, after trying everything I knew, I decided to soften them a witty pre-touch. I purchased 10 craft bottles from a craft store. Then I wrote witty notes, rolled them up, and put them in the bottles. I had them delivered and then called the VIP’s. 80% took my call. Of those, 100% booked an appointment.I have coached many of my clients to use these techniques. All of them see some kind of increase. One guy had an immediate influx of 10 new deals—in 2 days! Even cooler than the immediate increase in business is the magic effect. People feel magic when they do this stuff. This gives more confidence to ask for the sale. And they are having fun. How much better are we when we are having fun?This stuff works. You should listen to Stu’s results and the results of all of the practitioners who he has connected with over the past few years. You have to read the book and definitely listen to his interview on this podcast.Be different. Show authentic care. Be enthusiastic and genuine. Love them and they’ll love you back.Key Points from the podcast:7:10 The art isn't in saying it with fewer words, but more thoughtful words. Humor is also good.12:05 Stu considered a 10% response rate a disaster…He needed to get 100%,
