    Your Fear Is Right

    Your Fear Is Right

    In today’s episode, Eddie shares an experience that taught him that everything that happens, happens for us, not to us. He also learned that our fear can be right, and so we shouldn’t hide from it or pretend it doesn’t exist. It can show us what matters most to us, and instead of thinking it’s telling us that we can’t do something, it’s actually telling us that we can do. We then invite you to learn your strengths so you can be who you are and benefit the world.

    “You are capable of so much more than you think. And your fear? Your fear is just reminding you WHERE. Where your opportunities lie. It’s telling you the truth about where to step next.” 12:43

    We Suck At This

    We Suck At This

    Today we share some experiences and lessons that have shaped Eddie’s desire to help others with his words. One of the most important of these lessons is that if you can get yourself to take a single step forward, you’re fully qualified to help move others forward. We share that we all suck at knowing what we are truly capable of. We share an exercise to help you understand this concept. We encourage you to take a look at the ways you sedate yourself to escape your fear, and determine to replace those things with activities that will help you to move yourself forward. We share with you a technique for setting and achieving goals and increasing your capacity using your strengths.

    “And so if you can help yourself take a single step, you can now help millions do the exact same thing. That was what I learned. That’s the heart of influencing.” 8:50

    How To Get People To Listen To You

    How To Get People To Listen To You

    In today’s episode, we discuss getting others to listen to what we have to say in a way that is truly authentic to who we are and is valuable to the listener. We emphasize the truth that you are infinitely unique, so that if you have an opinion to share, you are the only one who can do it. We break the concept of showing others the value of what you have to say into 3 parts : First, see the value in listening to yourself. The best way to do this is to really understand your strengths. Second, see the value in listening to them. Third, they will inevitably want to listen to what you have to say because you have demonstrated the value that both you and they have.

    -Intro: How to Handle Feedback 0:54
    -Getting People to Listen -- 3 Steps 3:45
    -The Best Way To Teach Others 21:21

    “This concept of trying to live my life authentically means being true and telling the truth based on the way I see it because only I can see it that way. And it’s not because my opinions are the only ones that matter, but my opinions can only be created by me. Which means that if I’ve got something to say, then it’s going to be of value to you because no one else can say it.” 5:42

    Turn Your Fear Into a Skill

    Turn Your Fear Into a Skill

    Today, we explore the concept of turning fears into skills using the talents and strengths that have been given to you. We start by emphasizing the importance of living authentically so that you can bring value to others in a way that makes you happy. We invite you to consider scheduling or attending a workshop. Public workshops are in the process of being scheduled and more information will soon be available on a new website. We talk about the importance of recognizing that any success can be achieved authentically. We invite you to get clear about what you want and what you are worried about; put those two things together, and then ask “How?” You then are able to start using your strengths and talents to start developing that skill.

    -Staying Busy (But Happy) By Living Fully Authentically 1:08
    -Avoid Comparison; Turn Fear Into a Skill 7:32
    -Apply Your Strengths to Learn New Skills 19:40

    “Everything is about taking all these things that you’re afraid of, turning them into a skill, and ultimately doing everything in a way that is fully authentic to you, in a way that nobody else on this planet can do, because you are infinitely unique and cannot be duplicated! That means that what you’re going to do to solve this problem is different than the way anybody else has ever done it because it’s YOU. It’s coming from YOU. And it’s time for you to start listening to your inside voice.” 21:11

    Your Mentor Didn't Mean It That Way

    Your Mentor Didn't Mean It That Way

    In today’s episode, Eddie shares a personal experience when he had an employee quit because of something he said. He shares this experience to illustrate a lot of principles that can help anyone who is in a position of influence and is worried about people misinterpreting their words. In this experience, Eddie was surprised that in his efforts to offer words of encouragement to his employee, he actually drove him to quit. He points out that before his employee left, he should have asked him what it was that he thought that he had said. He then teaches the most important principle: that if you’re taking anything anyone says to you as disempowering, it’s not true. Eddie then invites you to choose 4 of your Clifton strengths, describe each one in 3 to 5 words, and put those descriptions together to motivate you to solve your problems today.

    -Eddie’s Experience; What He Would Have Done Differently 5:00
    -If It Disempowers You, It’s Not True 15:09
    -Eddie’s Challenge With Your Clifton Strengths 19:59

    “So what I want you to do is think about this: when you’re listening to mentors, or friends, or anybody -- whether they’re an expert or not -- if what they said puts power into you, then believe it. Okay? If it puts you and keeps you in your business, then believe it. If you have a thought, or a feeling, or someone shares a story, or ANYTHING, that lets you believe that your strengths and talents are not perfect; if any thought that pops into your head that makes you think that you can’t do this, what you’re choosing to believe is a lie. And it’s time to put the power back into you.” 18:32
