WARRIOR OF CREATIVITY 

A lot of people look at Millennials as entitled. Others look at them as lazy. The truth is they are just shifting perspective and are incredibly resourceful. Millennials have found ways to solve new problems by taking the knowledge from previous generations and applying the technology available now.

WARRIOR of Reciprocity

People toss around the idea of integrity in business but I wonder if most really understand what it is. Perhaps more importantly, what the true downside is of being out of integrity. Integrity to me is more than a moral compass. It’s the integration of your values and your behavior in business. It’s knowing that what people don’t see behind the scenes is more important that what they do see.

THE FUN AND CURIOUS WARRIOR 

When you think of a good leader, what do you think of? A good leader is someone who really knows the people that are following them. The people who follow them also know all about the leader. There needs to be a strong level of empathy. People need that emotional connection, and to feel invested. If you throw your power around, you’re only going to get compliance – not motivation. Nothing gets done efficiently with compliance.

WARRIOR of Reciprocity

When you’re a Creative Warrior, there is virtually no separation between you and your business. In fact, what we explore in this episode is the power to get the results you want in your business by advancing your personal development. The anchor of this episode is my favorite quote by Jim Rohn–“Your level of success rarely exceeds your level of personal development.” Think of this as a moveable ceiling. You raise the ceiling by advancing yourself and your level of success rises to meet your new height.

KINDNESS WARRIOR 

Have you ever been in a meeting where you saw someone absentmindedly scribbling on a paper instead of listening to the presentation? Did you think they were being rude, not paying attention, and clearly not interested in what was going on? You couldn’t have been more wrong.

ENTREPRENEUR WARRIOR 

As entrepreneurs we usually try to think of the next best product people will want. We come up with an idea, make it happen, and expect to see success. We know our products are better than anyone else’s on the market, and that’s all we need to be the successful – right?

WARRIOR of Reciprocity

One of the most common debates in business is whether to niche or not to niche. I suppose it works for some but I believe it is counterintuitive to the Creative Warrior’s natural way of being. Do one thing? For just one group of people? But we are capable of being good at many things. To say nothing of it being a smart business model in today’s world is to have multiple streams of income. Listen in to how I define the New Niche and how old niche is about narrowing and New Niche is about expansion.

WARRIOR OF FAITH 

We always hear people say, “Act your age!” But what does that really mean? What is someone who is 41 supposed to act like that’s different than someone who is 40? We are told we have to grow up, but that can come with some dangerous consequences.

When we try to “grow up” we lose the ability to take chances. We become afraid of the world. Adults don’t play in the rain, they cower under umbrellas to escape the little drops of water from falling on us. We begin to follow rules because that’s what we were always told to do. There’s no reason for me to wait 30 minutes after eating before I swim. It has no science behind it, and yet many people still believe it’s true. We follow so many rules blindly, and it may be time to start letting it go.

WARRIOR of Reciprocity

When in business, we can often start following the “rules” of our industry. Thinking the way it’s been done is the way it “should” be done. Of course, there also all these rules in life about proper behavior and the normal way to be in the world. Is normalcy the path to creating an outstanding life? I think not! Learn about the importance of playing by your own rules. Trusting yourself and standing out.

WONDER WOMAN WARRIOR

Everyone knows that nothing holds a creative back more than themselves. We all think that we’re not good enough. We get jealous of others, and give up before we even try. We believe our skills just aren’t good enough.
