    Cause and effect. When you do something it has an effect on something else. The other side is when you don’t do something it still affects something. Last week CJ talked about the difficulties of not having the same routine that he’s had over the last few years. Because he hasn’t had the same routine it was affecting how he went about his day. Today he starts the conversation with somewhat of an epiphany and how although he’s not able to have his normal routine, he still has an opportunity to fix his gaps and increase his strengths. ET rounds out the conversation on what you can do to regain your confidence and how to take advantage of this time instead of letting it pass by.

Change isn’t easy and changing against your will is something most of us do not want to do.

    Everyone wants to be great and be successful, but how many of you show up every day? On today’s podcast, ET talks about the importance of NOT checking out while on your journey to success. Life happens to everyone, but people who become GREAT keep pushing no matter what. While the greats keep pushing and elevating, ET talks to the people who are going AWOL and not showing up consistently. Not showing up in their business, in their marriage, and they wonder why they’re still average. Take notes from today’s episode on the process and importance of showing up consistently.

    A part of being successful is NOT going AWOL. You can’t go AWOL and expect to get the privileges that successful people have. You can not physically clock in and clock out. You can own what happens to you internally. The only way you shift your perspective is to think of others.

    217 - What Happened To Your Hearts

    "Of all the things you can be, why be a taker?  I've never understood that mindset. I mean, how do you decide to take something and give nothing in return? " -ET.
    Today's podcast is a hot one and the issue of "Takers Vs. Givers" is just one of the several points covered in today's session. Success is an incredible attraction, and, as everyone on the squad continues their elevation in both business and private life, more and more people want in on the circle.  The problem is, some but not all of these "new people" have brought with them three particularly nasty spirits. Complaining, manipulation, and taking. If you know anything about E, C, Karl, Mal & the Squad, then you already know, these are 3 Things that the squad doesn’t tolerate. 
    As ever, ETA's very own "Quincy Jones" AKA CJ, plays devil’s advocate when the conversation shifts to the topic of how and when to charge for your services. Today's show covers a myriad of relevant topics and the passion from the guys and their special in-studio guests will have you glued to your headphones!  
    Trust me; if you're in the process of building anything, a business, personal, and professional relationships, or anything else,  you'll need to hear what's about to go down today! Grab a friend, grab a pen, and settle in. Today's the day we make it plain!

    People never see an opportunity unless there’s a check attached to it. A takers mentality allows you to miss a window of opportunity. An investor’s mentality allows you to do things today that pay you down the road. Don’t come to a potluck empty handed. You can’t be family only when you want to be family.
