045: Do You Want to Accelerate Your Results?

What would your life look like if you had a 28-hour day?

Many people think they would get so much more done but I don’t know about that.

I founded a leadership development retreat years ago with my best friend and we would take about 30 people up to the mountains for a weekend of self-improvement, personal breakthrough, and growth.

One of the exercises was an activity to determine how much time they waste every single day. They were horrified to see how much time was left on the table.

The reality is that if you had more time in the day you would not necessarily be more productive. Let’s make valuable use of the time we already have before we ask for more.

In today’s show, I am going to share with you how you can sky rocket your results.

044: What I Learned From My Injury

Getting knocked out from what you love to do is a terrible feeling.

Recently, I injured myself working out and could barely move for a couple of days. It was terrible. At the time, I thought it was going to keep me from doing what I love for weeks or even months.

Fortunately, I am on the mend but I learned a very valuable lesson from the experience.

The lessons I am going to share with you will certainly help you bounce back from challenges faster and stronger than ever before.

043: Turn Failure into Success

thumb_IMG_3660_1024

We spend so much of our life worrying about failure and comparing ourselves to other.

We don’t start projects because we fear we might fail.

We surf social media and see how wonderful everyone else’s life is not realizing they are just showing the “highlight” reel. In many cases, even the highlight reel is just a façade to give the perception of things being great when in reality they are crumbling inside.

Reality is we are going to fail at times – many times. We are going to get knocked down and we have the choice to stay there or get back up.

We can choose to compare ourselves to others or get so busy living our purpose that we don’t have time to compare ourselves to others.

The choice is always yours.

041: What Can Gymnastics Teach Us About Patience?

I am terrible with being patient. I like to be good at things immediately. I like to see immediate results.

This is not a virtue when it comes to learning high level gymnastics moves that require a high level of preparation and conditioning.

It is probably why I have put off this gymnastics program for so long.

Now that I started, I have already learned a lot about patience and being humble.

Looking forward to sharing these lessons with you today.

037: Is Clutter Keeping You Stuck?

chaos-227971_1280

How many times have you walked by the messy office or table and said to yourself that you will take care of it another day only to watch that space become messier and messier?

Clutter is a distraction. A cluttered external space represents a cluttered internal space and a clutter internal space does not attract abundance.

Literally, this week I cleaned up a couple of cluttered spaces in my life and saw massive growth. It happens ever time.

Give it a try and see for yourself.
