WARRIOR OF RECIPROCITY

The whole idea of work/life balance is a misnomer. Or is it even work/life balance that you strive for? Perhaps it’s more of a relationship between money and lifestyle. As you’ll hear in this episode, there’s a time to attain and a time to attune. And it very well may be that at different stages of life, while one is in attainment mode that work/life balance is a struggle. Whereas when one is in the attunement stage of life, you may be more interested in the relationship between the life you want to live and how hard you’re willing to work to support your lifestyle. Which begs the question- are you fitting life into work or work into life?

THE NEXT SMALL STEP WARRIOR       

There is no known answer to anything. We often look to “experts” to show us the way when we’re feeling insecure. But this can cause us to lose our intuition in the process. At the end of the day, you are what separates you and your product apart from others.

Why has failure been glamourized? As if it’s some badge of honor, a rite of passage or something we need to go through as Warriors. It’s not. It’s all in how you look at it. I share how I look at “failure”, or don’t see it at all actually. You’ll understand once you listen and will realize you have far more control than you might think to see it as you chose. No more “fail fast” theories. You don’t need to fail fast. You can Master Fast.

THE DETERMINATION WARRIOR       

I’ve grown to have an aversion to the term “likemindedness.” If you only hang out with people who share your views, you’ll never be challenged. The bigger challenge is being around people who think differently and still being able to find alignment.

The power of a single word. The power to change your perspective. My hope is that thinking in terms of thresholds as you go through changes in life, particularly in midlife, will help you embrace the process. Which can at times be painful, frustrating and scary. Perhaps it’s because you’ve been thinking you’re going through a transition instead of a threshold.

THE INNOVATION WARRIOR       

As most of you know, I’m a true systems guy. But not many people think of creativity as something that can have a system. Most assume that it’s something that “hits” you out of nowhere instead of something that you can plan out. However, there is a way to develop a process for creative problem-solving.

My book, LINGO is a branding and marketing strategy. But this episode is about your inner lingo. Meaning, I believe it’s incredibly important to pay attention to the energy behind what you say and think. That’s your inner lingo. To accelerate getting what you want out of your business and life, you want to align your inner lingo with your outer lingo and the thoughts in your mind.

THE PATIENCE WARRIOR       

Gratitude is a personal practice that takes place internally. It can retrain your brain away from negativity and make you more aware of the good around you. So how can we take gratitude and give it an exponential effect? One way to make it active is by sending thank-you notes.

We often wear perfection like a badge of honor. But is it really? Or is it a negative fuel source cloaked in a great outcome? This conversation with a friend over Sunday brunch may give you a different perspective and reframe perfection to excellence. I explore the difference and challenge you to consider the difference in your own life between perfection and excellence.

THE COMPLETION WARRIOR       

I suck at improv. I’ve dabbled in it here and there, but I love it because it challenges me in all the ways I need to grow. I’ve been known to “prescribe” improv to clients, but they often don’t end up taking a class. The fear of looking stupid holds a lot of people back from even trying it. Improv offers a huge number of lessons about life and business.
