    ITG #14 - Leadership

    ITG #14 - Leadership

    Welcome to Inspired to Greatness... the show all about spreading inspiration, motivation, and being great., I am your host, I hope you are having an amazing day, my friends! Today we are talking about... Leadership and HOW to be a leader!

    If you want to be a leader then take a look at what motivates and inspires those around you and feed that. Learn how to focus on the positive and always be pushing toward the future. Empower people to be the best they can be... THAT is what it takes to be a great leader.

    "There is a difference between being a leader and being a boss. Both are based on authority. A boss demands blind obedience; a leader earns his authority through understanding and trust." Klaus Balkenhol

    "The best leader is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and the self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it." Theodore Roosevelt

    "Do you know that one of the great problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas?" Margaret Thatcher

    "Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems." Brian Tracy

    "A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don't necessarily want to go, but ought to be." Rosalynn Carter (Leaders challenge and motivate us to do what we didn't know we could do)

    Lead by inspiration, not intimidation. -Rebecca Aguilar

    Don’t find fault, find a remedy. -Henry Ford

    ITG #12 - Working with Passion

    ITG #12 - Working with Passion

    Living your life with passion is important... having a certain lust or gusto for life will allow you to enjoy all that this beautiful world provides you. But Passion in your work is just as important. While it might not be practical when you are young or in school, taking your passion and turning it into your vocation is VITALLY important to your happiness. Doing what you love should always be a part of the big picture... even if it only starts as a side-gig or an after-hours hustle. If you don't LOVE your job, then find a job doing what you love and take the steps to get that job.

    “The secret of joy in work is contained in one word – excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.” Pearl S. Buck

    “Yes, I’ve made a great deal of dough from my fiction, but I never set a single word down on paper with the thought of being paid for it … I have written because it fulfilled me. Maybe it paid off the mortgage on the house and got the kids through college, but those things were on the side—I did it for the buzz. I did it for the pure joy of the thing. And if you can do it for the joy, you can do it forever.” Stephen King

    “If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, go out and sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures. Sweep streets like Handel and Beethoven composed music. Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will have to pause and say, here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.”
    Martin Luther King, Jr.

    “The law of work seems unfair, but nothing can change it; the more enjoyment you get out of your work, the more money you will make.”
    Mark Twain

    “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” Steve Jobs

    “You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.” Maya Angelou

    “Never continue in a job you don’t enjoy. If you’re happy in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined.” Johnny Carson

    ITG #11 - Social Media

    ITG #11 - Social Media

    We have an exciting show for you this week. We are joined by a very special guest... Kari Sanders (For.Non.Blondes on Instagram), Dr. Casey's wife... she is an amazing hair stylist from here in Fort Worth, and we are going to talk about how she has gotten to 11,500+ Followers on Instagram and more social media tips!

    Social media is about building a relationship with your community, your fan base, your network, your potential customers, your tribe... whatever you call it; but it's about building a relationship. Putting in the effort and the WORK (yes, social media is about work... all relationships take work)... putting in the work to bring VALUE to the people. You bring value, give them something that is helpful or informative or just entertaining... and then they will appreciate you. When they appreciate you they will come to you when they need what you have OR they will suggest you to their community, tribe, friends, whatever... when they need help.

    “Focus on how to be social, not on how to do social.”

    “Social marketing eliminates the middlemen, providing brands the unique opportunity to have a direct relationship with their customers.”

    “Our head of social media is the customer.” - McDonalds

    “People want to do business with you because you help them get what they want. They don’t do business with you to help you get what you want.”

    “Social media is about the people! Not about your business. Provide for the people and the people will provide you.”

    ITG #10 - Adapting To Change

    ITG #10 - Adapting To Change

    BE THE BIRD!!!!
    Today we are talking about... Adapting To Change!!!
    ———
    Quote for Topic: ( Adapting To Change )

    He who rejects change is the architect of decay. ~Harold Wilson

    Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to remain the same but get better.
    ~Sydney J. Harris

    The path of least resistance is the path of the loser.
    ~H. G. Wells
    -----
    Business Tip:
    How to be prepared for change:
    Choose who you listen to.
    Have hypothetical business plans.
    Strategize ahead of time for opportunities that may arise.
    Get feedback on your plans. Then Refine.
    Always be thinking about what could change, what should change. Be Forward thinking
    (Don't be married to the process or idea)

    The ability to set time management goals.
    _______
    Motivational Moment:

    The world is changing very fast. Big will not beat small anymore. It will be the fast beating the slow.
    ~Rupert Murdoch

    Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts. ~Arnold Bennett

    It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg.
    ~C. S. Lewis

    Change might be uncomfortable, heck it's probably scary... you might be comfortable or happy with how things are. And often change can come with setbacks. But if you never adapt to the changes in your business, in your industry, or in your life... you will be unsuccessful. Because change is going to happen... no matter if you want things to change or not. Change will happen and those who adapt early will far outpace those who struggle and resist.

    "You might be happy with the status quo, but the status quo might not be happy with you... the status quo is never permanent." - Matt Blake

    ITG #9 - Networking Together

    Welcome to Inspired to Greatness... on the show this week we are talking about networking and working together. Our guests, Greg & Shirley, are an amazing couple and have a wonderful product that can change your life. We talk about how they help people, how they network, and how we should all work together!

    We're all working together; that's the secret - Sam Walton

    Effective networking isn't a result of luck - it requires hard work and persistence. - Lewis Howes

    One of the challenges in networking is everybody thinks it's making cold calls to strangers. Actually, it's the people who already have strong trust relationships with you, who know you're dedicated, smart, a team player, who can help you. - Reid Hoffman

    Business Tip:
    Networking Effectively:
    Be Genuine and Authentic
    Have clear goals about why you are networking
    Ask open-ended and conversation moving questions
    Be a resource for others
    Have a clear message about what you do and why you're special
