You're choosing those voices, either way. Questions: 1. What are the messages you're hearing from the people who are closest to you? 2. What are you doing to build your self-esteem? 3. How are you overcoming the fear that's holding you back? 4. Do you have the Five Predictors of Success?

Here’s how you can ‘harness the wind’ in your world?
24:22When you see things that are needed, or things that are ‘wrong’ it’s also an opportunity to do the ‘hard work’ to create a solution. You likely have access to everything you need. If you engage your passion, tell the truth in advance, and take action, you could indeed make your dent in the universe. Questions: 1. What do you do if see a problem in your home? 2. How can you create your own “reality distortion field”? 3. What does it mean to tell the truth in advance? 4. How can you overcome any fear you have?

Should I wait to be fired or quit now?
42:14If the company wants to get rid of you, nobody is winning by you staying. You are sacrificing your own mental, emotional, spiritual health every day that you stay. That’s too high a price to pay for the hope of collecting a measly unemployment check - which is not a desirable end goal anyway. Take the initiative to create the next chapter of your life. Questions: 1. How can I get to the point where I can spend all my time in my non-profit organization? 2. I have the option to make over 110 grand or pursue my entrepreneurial passions. 3. I'm terrified of having no passion to pursue and being stuck in meaningless jobs for life. 4. If you feel you may be fired, is it better to be fired and collect unemployment or to quit your job before being fired? 5. I just got a job offer in commission only sales but I don’t know if I can survive.

I’m resigning - but I’m not discouraged…
40:05Your quitting - your “resignation” can be a “going-up” experience. Quitting something that you don’t care about, or something where you’re mediocre, or something that is “killing your soul” can free up your brainpower, your energy, your accumulated wisdom, your passion and your talent - for something where you can WIN. Questions: 1. What should you do if you are dissatisfied with your current situation? 2. Is resigning an act of giving up? 3. What are the three critical things you need to be successful?

Positive Thinking is Hogwash - really?
27:18This week a well-known leader and author posted a short segment totally trashing thinking, dreaming, imagining, wishing, hoping, meditating, or praying as ways to get closer to success. Apparently being a robot will suffice - as long as you are "doing". I beg to differ. Questions: 1. Is it useless to think positively? 2. Is dreaming just a childish mind game to avoid the reality of my life? 3. Do I really get to choose the life I live? Get direct links to the resources mentioned on this podcast, including a few books I recommend reading to answer this question for yourself as well as 6 tips to a successful day through a positive attitude, in the podcast show notes at https://www.48days.com/positive-thinking-is-hogwash

Turns out I’m insane by definition…
48:36You know the old saying - If you keep doing the same things and expect different results, you're insane. A listener suspects that of himself. What about you? Are you doing the same things you were doing five years ago - one year ago? With the rapid speed of change we can't get trapped into trying to keep things as they were, or just trying to get back to "normal." Improve your sanity by growing and moving forward. Questions: 1. I love cooking for people. How can I open a restaurant? 2. I’ve been burdened with the thought that I am not very good at anything. 3. Is my personality something to be overcome, or could it possibly be used to my advantage? 4. If I start a new business I feel extreme pressure because I cannot afford to fail at all. 5. Turns out I'm insane by definition, since I’m just as miserable in my new job as I was before. 6. Can my playlist tell me what my passions are?

I’m smarter now. Why isn’t my life better?
45:04More knowledge and more degrees won't make a difference in your life - unless you move from Knowledge to Understanding and then Application. Knowing more is a great start. Now give yourself timelines for taking specific action and your life will change dramatically! Questions: 1. I have 3 young kids - 7, 10, and 12 and my question is this: How do I help them discover and develop their passions and unique God given abilities? 2. How do I overcome concerns about my lack of experience since I’m just starting out as a financial planner? 3. I’ve studied a lot and know more. Why am I not getting any traction on making my life better? 4. I'm unemployed and am trying to find a new job but I think that my former employer is giving me a bad reference. 5. What are some tools or processes high "C" personality types can use to evaluate a business idea without throwing every single one out? 6. I’m a new handyman - I've put out about 200 flyers by placing them in the newspaper boxes - with no call backs.
