    Ep 56 - Just Get Started

    Ep 56 - Just Get Started

    WE MADE IT! It's our anniversary. That's right, The Grind and Gratitude Show is ONE year old. The podcast has been going strong for one year. Over the last year, we have been bringing you tips, guidance, and guests dropping gems so that you can take the information and uplevel your business or your life.


    We are thankful to have reached listeners in 50 countries and we plan on continuing to bring you amazing content, conversations, and information to create the life or business you want. However, this episode is not just about us, it's about you! And in this episode Coach Stone talks about the power of getting started and doing it scared. 


    If you have some big dreams or major goals that you want to achieve and you are afraid to get started or you haven't taken action to make it happen, you will love this episode.


    Here is some of what you will find out in this episode:


    [2:17] That's right, the Grind and Gratitude Show launched one year ago. And I'm so excited about that because I just didn't know how long I would continue to do this show for I didn't even know how to launch a podcast back then.


    [8:09] I think it was May 27 or something like that. And literally, that was eight days from the time that I decided to launch the podcast. And I knew nothing about a podcast. But I just made up my mind that I'm launching the podcast on that date. And I gave myself eight days to learn as much as I can about podcasting because I was launching the podcast in a days.


    [9:39] This is why you have to get going on your goals. Because maybe there's something that you've been thinking about for a long time. You just think I don't know how to do this.


    [10:28] So sometimes you just might have to find out who can help me is the friend, is it a family member? Is it somebody I know, maybe it's not somebody, you know, maybe you need to get a coach or a mentor? Or maybe you have to buy a course or a program. Or maybe you have to, you know, find some, some courses or programs or material from somebody who's already doing what you want to do.


    [11:12] Whatever you're curious about, whatever you're passionate about, whatever you're constantly thinking about, you have to take action on that thing. Because that's what you're being pulled to do. That's what you're being called to do.


    [12:43]  I took eight days, I learned as much as I can, I bought some equipment, I partnered up with some people who knew how to do it, and they helped me launch my podcast. And it's been a journey like this, this, this platform has opened up so many things in my life, it's helped me to kind of understand more about who I am, in my mission in the world and my purpose, and connecting with other amazing people.


    [14:48] So I was afraid of a lot of things. But the thing that I have in common with every single thing I've ever achieved is that I just got started I did it scared. And that's my message to you, you got to get started. And you got to do it scared. Because if I hadn't have done this, I wouldn't be impacting lives all over the world.


    [15:24] You know, we check the analytics a couple of weeks ago, we reached 50 countries. We have listeners in 50 countries. So wherever you're listening from right now, I just want to say thank you so much for tuning into the grind and gratitude show.


    [17:45] Be thankful for the things that you have. Because when you start to look at your life with that lens, you start to attract more of the things that you want.


    [21:41] I'm saying that there are things in your life that you've achieved, or that you've overcome, that you never thought you could achieve, and that you never thought you could overcome. And when you think about that, you have to go back and think about all of those things and use that as fuel for your future goals and dreams


    [22:27] So we get messages from people that just like, Man, I'm loving the podca

    Ep 55: 7 Reasons Entrepreneurship Might Not Be For You

    Ep 55: 7 Reasons Entrepreneurship Might Not Be For You

    Many people dream about being their own boss. They have a desire to quit their jobs, become an entrepreneur and do what they love for a living. One problem though... Entrepreneurship is NOT for everyone. Not everyone has what it takes to put in the hard work, to be in control of their own destiny, and to do what it takes to have a successful business.


     


    In this episode, Coach Stone breaks down 7 reasons entrepreneurship is not for you. 


    [2:48] I want to talk about seven reasons why you're not cut out to be an entrepreneur. If any of these reasons kind of ring true for you, then I'm not saying that it's not for you. I'm just saying you have to evaluate where you are with these things.


    [4:20] Being an entrepreneur, you're going to have to get outside of your comfort zone, you're going to have to stretch yourself, you're going to have to grow yourself mentally, spiritually, physically, you have to grow. If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you can't be comfortable.


    [5:58] Entrepreneurship, and being a business owner is not about making quick money, it just doesn't happen like that. And even if it does, is not going to be sustainable.


    [9:23] If you hate sales and marketing, if you hate promoting things, if you hate talking about you know your products and services to potential customers, then being an entrepreneur is not for you because you're constantly communicating to people what it is that you do, what products you sell, the services that you offer. 


    [12:58] If you are somebody who constantly makes plans and doesn't execute, then no entrepreneurship not for you.


    [21:34] Being an entrepreneur is all about that. It's all about solving a big problem, and then positioning how you're solving that problem. 


    [24:58] At the end of the day, it's up to you. If you want to try it, put yourself out there, find something that you're absolutely passionate about, find a big problem that you solve, investigate it, research it and then start it as a side hustle, and if it takes off then maybe you launch it as a full-on business.

    Ep 54 - 4 W's to Win in Life

    Ep 54 - 4 W's to Win in Life

    Sometimes in life we lose sight of the things that matter, we lose ourselves and we find it difficult to create the life we want. We forget that we are winners, we don't remember we are champions.


    In this episode, Coach Danny Stone helps you to get back to the winning mindset. He breaks down the four W's to win in life and your business. As a Transformational Speaker, Coach, and Author, Coach Stone has helped hundreds and hundreds of people to find their inner champion and to start winning in life again, he shares the four key factors with you in this episode.


     


    Here's a snippet of what he talks about on this episode:


    [2:39] We fall off, we fall off because of the mistakes that we made the failures, other people's opinions, or we're comparing ourselves to other people. You know, that's the worst sometimes you look at social media, and you see somebody who's living this life, and you say to yourself, they just seem like they're so far ahead of me.


    [5:36] The first w if you want to win in life, the first W is getting clear about your What? What is it that you really want? 


    [7:32] When you tell your mind that you want something, and you're serious about it and you're committed, then your brain is going to do everything that he can to help you get that.


    [8:36] Then once you get clear about your what now you got to ask yourself the whys. Why are these musts? Why is it a must that I achieved this goal or live this dream?


    [11:39] I made a commitment, I dedicated myself to losing weight to eating healthy to getting my energy back. And you know what happened? Once I got clear about the why, once I realized it was about something bigger than what I initially thought, I committed to it, I committed to training daily, I committed to eating healthy, I committed to sharing my journey with my friends and my family.


    [14:24] The third W is run WRUN. And now see I got a little bit creative there. And this WRUN means write it down and run. That means take action. So you need to write down your goals. Write down what it is that you see for yourself. 


    [19:09] The fourth W if you want to really win in life, the fourth W is you need to have the will, the will to never give up the will to stay focused and not be distracted by other things and shiny objects.


    [20:35] When you think about sports teams, and they're down in the game, and it doesn't look like there's any time left on the clock, and they might have one second left or 10 seconds or three seconds, and you're like, there's no way they're going to win this game, they're not going to make that shot, they're not going to get that touchdown, they're not going to score that goal. And then they come out. And somehow they win. And you're like, you know, how is that possible? It's because they had the will to win, they didn't give up.


    [22:45] The only thing that's stopping you is those limiting beliefs and that inner critic that says that you can't do it. Or when things get tough, it says give up. That's the only thing stopping you from winning in life and winning in your business, you need to stay focused.


    [25:13] There are so many times that I just thought that I couldn't do it. And I just threw in the towel. And I now realize that I could have kept going. I was the one that was stopping me, there were no other forces that were stopping me from doing the things that I wanted to do. It was just me. It was just my mindset. 


    [27:52] You are a winner. I got to keep telling you this, you're a winner. You're a champion, you've done things before that you never thought you could do. you've overcome some major challenges that you never thought you would get through. And so you need to remind yourself of that. You need to remind yourself that you're resourceful, you're resilient, you're brilliant, you're amazing. And that you can get anything that you want.

    Ep 53: 3 Secrets to Really Achieve Your Goals

    Ep 53: 3 Secrets to Really Achieve Your Goals

    One of the most common questions people ask Coach Stone is "How do I achieve my goals?" People want to know how to get things done. They want to know how to FINALLY accomplish those goals they started and didn't finish.


    In this episode, Coach Danny Stone breaks down 3 secrets that he and his coaching clients use to walk towards creating the lives of their dreams. You will definitely want to grab a pen and paper to make notes for this episode.


     


    Here's some of what is mentioned in this episode:


    [4:23] In life we're never really taught how to go after what we want, how to even get clear about what we want. We're not taught how a step by step process to make things happen in our lives. We're not taught about mindset and how that's important to get what you want.


    [6:46] I started to apply some of these things to my life, secrets that I kind of come up with that are really going to help you because they've really helped me to achieve my goals faster than I ever thought possible. 


    [9:13] Most of us don't spend enough time thinking about our dreams and thinking about what it is that we really want. Because we don't think it's possible. So we don't spend time on it. We're not clear about what it is that we really want. And so you end up spreading yourself thin, you end up chasing all of these different things.


    [11:56] So clarity is key. That's the first thing that successful people do they get clear, super clear about what it is that they want in their lives. 


    [13:41] Maybe you've tried in the past and you failed, and then that's holding you back, you're still remembering that failure, you're still remembering that you tried to achieve something in the past and you were unsuccessful. So that's holding you back. And because of that, you keep going in and out of focus, you keep going back to I really want this thing and you take a little bit of action, and then you pull back.


    [15:36] I wrote the book, had the book done, the cover everything in less than 90 days. Why? Because I was focused, I didn't get sidetracked with all of these other things. I said, Look, every day I'm going to write, I'm going to do something towards getting this book done, I was focused.


    [20:04] And the key to really achieving your goals and your dreams is to break that bigger goal into smaller chunks. And then you break those chunks into daily actions. And that requires a plan.


    [27:43] Nobody's more special than you. There's no magic wand that some people have that we don't have. It doesn't exist. It's clarity, focus, mindset, action, you know, plan. These are the reasons why some people are highly successful.

This Podcast is Pure FIRE!

From the first episode I was hooked! The episode on why believing in yourself is a lie was spot on. It’s like Danny was in my head! It’s not that easy to just believe in yourself, but he laid out actionable steps to take to build belief in yourself and your dreams. I’m definitely going to recommend this podcast to more people. This podcast is pure fire!
