    Rewind: Give God Something To Bless

    Have you ever put something off or not taken the next step simply because you were confused about what came next?
    Well, I’m pretty sure all of us have done this at one point or another.
    The problem with this is when we’re not clear on what comes next, we often do one of two things. We either become information-gathers who run around in circles or we do nothing at all. 
    But here’s the thing, in life there’s always going to be seasons where you’re confused. That’s why it’s so important for you to become comfortable in the confusion and realize that any time you put yourself out there in a new way, it will be uncomfortable and confusing, but it’s a necessary part of growth.
    For me, whenever I’m confused, I look at it as an opportunity to meet new people, to ask for help, to invest in myself and to stretch in a new way. In other words, I look at every instance of confusion as another opportunity to create something magical, and I hope after today’s episode you do too.

    Give God Something to Bless Takeaways  
    Confusion can only paralyze us if we allow it. – Patrice Washington
    Any time you put yourself out there in a new way, it’s uncomfortable and confusing, but it’s also a necessary part of growth. – Patrice Washington
    In the confusion, you have to be willing to surrender the most. – Patrice Washington
    Look at every instance of confusion as another opportunity to create something magical. – Patrice Washington
    If you’re waiting to have all the answers before you move forward, you’re going to go to your grave with the best ideas still in you. – Patrice Washington
    God knows what you’re waiting on when He sees what you’re working on. – Patrice Washington
    You have to participate in your own rescue. – Patrice Washington
    I’d rather walk in what I believe may be the right direction blindfolded, than stand still. – Patrice Washington
    Are you letting confusion hold you back? Are you waiting to have all the answers before you move forward? The hard truth is if you continue to stand still, you’ll end up going to your grave with all your best ideas still inside of you.
    And for me, that’s unacceptable. I don’t want to be where I am now in a year from now. What about you? Are you ready to use confusion as an opportunity to grow? Let me know in the comments below.

    Cathy Heller: Clarity Comes in the Doing

    Cathy Heller: Clarity Comes in the Doing

    When you think about your story and how it’s made you who you are today, are there parts you’re ashamed to share? 
    For many of us, there’s often something we don’t want to talk about. Maybe you came from an abusive home and your parents were alcoholics. Maybe you suffered from depression and put on a lot of weight as a result. Maybe your business failed and you had to file for bankruptcy.
    Whatever it is, I’ve found that it’s the messy stuff – the stuff we want to sweep under the rug and forget about – that creates meaning in our life. And it’s that pain that ultimately creates our purpose.
    So when it’s uncomfortable to share or acknowledge a part of your story, or when it’s easier to not put yourself out there and be vulnerable, I want you to remember everyone is carrying around something and it’s in those moments where you open up that you can truly reach them – at least, that’s what Cathy Heller, author of Don’t Keep Your Day Job, and I think.
    In today’s episode, Cathy and I talk about everything from shame and your purpose to clarity and the importance of taking action. Cathy shares about her childhood, her first year in business and where she is now, and says instead of shaming yourself, you should invite all parts of yourself to have tea with you every morning. Join us as we dive in.

    This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer.
    Through this program, you’ll receive accountability and support in a dynamic community designed so you can finally make progress and be ready before you even need to pull that trigger on what’s no longer serving you.
     
    Clarity Comes in the Doing Takeaways
    Our pain often turns into our purpose. – Cathy Heller
    There is no person who is one dimensional. – Cathy Heller
    You tell your story so no one else can weaponize it and use it against you. – Patrice Washington
    Your vulnerability is your superpower. – Cathy Heller
    What makes you beautiful is the fact you’re broken. – Cathy Heller
    People overestimate what’s necessary for them to become successful and underestimate what they can do with three or four conversations a day. – Cathy Heller
    Give yourself permission to make sloppy progress and just get started. – Patrice Washington
    If you’re not willing to keep trying, testing and taking action, you’re never going to get to what you’re actually meant to build. – Cathy Heller
    It is harder to live in a state of celebration than it is in sadness. – Cathy Heller
    Whether you realize it or not, we’re all scrolling social media because we’re hoping something will make us feel less alone, that something will make us feel as if there’s someone out there who gets it.
    That’s why it’s so important for us to share our whole story –, the good and the bad. It’s the thing we need right now.
    So, are you willing to step out and share? Are you willing to be vulnerable? Are you willing to be imperfect? Are you willing to share your pain and struggles? Let us know in the comments below.

    Kwame Christian: Becoming Comfortable with Uncomfortable Conversations

    Kwame Christian: Becoming Comfortable with Uncomfortable Conversations

    Have you ever wondered why so many of us struggle with having difficult conversations? Whether we go into people-pleasing mode or we check out of the conversation altogether to avoid further confrontation, many of us find these types of conversations extremely uncomfortable.
    According to today’s guest, Kwame Christian, conflict is always an opportunity, and it’s difficult conversations that lead us to live our best life.
    But is there a way we can get more comfortable having these conversations? One of Kwame’s best tips is to inject time into the situation and think through things before responding. There’s nothing that says you need to respond to someone immediately, in fact it’s in those snap responses we usually get into trouble. 
    That’s why Kwame encourages us all to step back, think through the process and use his Compassionate Curiosity framework, where you first acknowledge your emotions, then get curious with compassion and finally use joint problem-solving to come to a solution.
    Kwame Christian is host of the world’s most popular negotiation podcast, Negotiate Anything, and is dedicated to empowering others through the art and science of negotiation and persuasion. And his book, Nobody Will Play With Me: Finding Confidence in Conflict, has helped countless individuals overcome the fear, anxiety and emotion often associated with difficult conversations. 
    Join Kwame and me as we go further into conflict resolution and discuss how to best navigate and lead difficult conversations.

    Conflict Resolution Takeaways
    The best things in life are on the other side of difficult conversations. – Kwame Christian
    You can decide not to decide anything today. – Patrice Washington
    Positive emotions can lead us to bad decisions in the same way that anger and frustration can. – Kwame Christian
    When a person can leave a conversation and think differently about the situation, that’s when change is most likely going to come. – Kwame Christian
    Get curious with compassion. – Kwame Christian
    Staying in constant conflict is an opportunity to strengthen our relationships. – Kwame Christian

    Jeff Johnson: When Men Thrive

    Jeff Johnson: When Men Thrive

    As we head into Father’s Day, I wanted to do a special episode for all of our Black men out there. I know 2020 has already been a year of changes and challenges, and I want to give all of you listening hope as I speak to what you might be experiencing. 
    To help me do this, I’ve invited Jeff Johnson, founder of Men Thrive – a digital platform dedicated to helping Black men of all ages show up whole, as they operate with joy and live with power. From creating, producing and hosting BET’s Mancave to launching the Men Thrive community, Jeff is intentionally curating experiences for Black men, and believes in providing spaces committed to men becoming their best selves.
    As Jeff explains on today’s episode, Black men suffer from the highest levels of toxic stress, anxiety and depression. And in America, Black men have the lowest life expectancy of any other demographic.
    But what might be more shocking than that is knowing Black men are suffering from a cultural norm that says they aren’t supposed to feel anything – nothing. No pain, no sorrow, no hurt.
    “Feeling,” Jeff says, “is our greatest strength and in turn our greatest power.” For this reason, Jeff believes when we acknowledge our feelings without being controlled by them, when we embrace our feelings and go inward to examine them, and when we use our feelings to manifest our purpose, then, and only then, can we find our power.
    Join us as we go further into this conversation and look at how history has contributed to this idea of feeling and to the space Black men (and women) find themselves in today.
    This episode is brought to you by our complimentary Purpose Chasers community. Want to share your aha moments with a group of like-minded purpose chasers from all over the world? Visit iamapurposechaser.com and join NOW.
     
    Jeff Johnson Takeaways  
    The slave trade was an economy, and for white people to buy into it, they had to believe the narrative they were sold – that Black people weren’t human. – Jeff Johnson
    Black men wear a mask because they can’t show themselves as human because white people can’t handle their humanity. – Jeff Johnson (paraphrasing Paul Laurence Dunbar)
    Our greatest strength and greatest opportunity as Black men is to show up whole to operate in joy and to live in power. – Jeff Johnson
    If I can be transparent with you about the small things, then we’ve got a track record of trust and can build on it. – Jeff Johnson
    What are your biggest takeaways from this episode? If you were to imagine a world where Black men showed up whole, in joy and in power, what would it look like? What would our families, our businesses and our communities look like? Let us know in the comments below.
     
    Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions
    And with that, let’s dig into Jeff’s responses to our Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions.
    Define Success:
    “Greatness. I hate the word success because I think it’s driven by what the world says you have to do in order to be recognized, but you can be great when nobody is watching. Success for me is the quest for mastery.”
    Define Wealth in 3 Words or Less:
    “Thank you, Daddy.” (i.e., When your children say thank you in the truest sense of the word for giving them what they needed, not what you told them they needed.)
    One Book that Has Redefined How You See Wealth:
    Why Should White Guys Have All the Fun? by Reginald Lewis
    Fill-in the Blanks … “My name is ___ and the truth about wealth is ___”:
    “My name is Jeff Johnson and the truth about wealth is that it is a multi-generational journey. In other words, it’s a relay race where my job is to have my family collectively in a better place when I hand over the baton then when I got the baton.”

    It's Pruning Season

    It's Pruning Season

    In case you didn’t already know, I’m a planner. My team and I plan out each week’s episode months in advance, and this week I was going to be all about the pruning and weeding the things from your life that are damaged, diseased or dying, since June 13 is National Weed Your Garden Day.
    Then George Floyd died in Minneapolis.
    Then I saw the video of Amy Cooper calling the police on Chris Cooper, the black man who simply asked her to leash her dog in Central Park.
    And I decided to shift this idea of pruning and weeding so it’s not only about cutting back what isn’t serving you in this season, but it’s also about pulling out the weeds of racism that run so deep in this country. 
    That said, this episode is going to be a little different than what you’re used to. In the past, I’ve never used my platform to address racism, but one of the weeds I’m pulling up for National Weed Your Garden Day is the idea that as a well-educated, productive, good Black woman I have to bury my pain to make people who are more privileged than me – simply because of color – comfortable. No more. 
    This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer.
    Through this program, you’ll receive accountability and support in a dynamic community designed so you can finally make progress and be ready before you even need to pull that trigger on what’s no longer serving you.

    It’s Pruning Season Takeaways  
    I’ve faced racism from blatant racists and I’ve faced racism from non-racists who refused to become anti-racists. – Patrice Washington
    White friends, many of you have older people in your family who are weeds to the cause of social justice. Speak up and say something. – Patrice Washington
    There’s no way for Black people to have intellectual conversations with people who believe they are lower than animals – no way. – Patrice Washington
    The excessive, unwanted weed of racism is so deep in this country that it will take all of our collective voices to say enough is enough. – Patrice Washington
    Take a stance and become a real ally, not a silent bystander. – Patrice Washington
    To say “I never know what to say” is not enough. You don’t get to have a pass on this. – Patrice Washington
    Silence makes you complacent. Silence is you saying, “Well, as long as it’s not me, I’m going to mind my own business. They’ll figure it out.” – Patrice Washington
    It’s not enough to not be racist. You have to make a decision to be anti-racist. – Patrice Washington
    Change is always uncomfortable, especially when it’s involuntary. – Patrice Washington
    It’s crucial that every one of us take note of the weeds growing around us, and that we do what’s needed to pull them as soon as we see them. Otherwise, they will not only continue to kill us but eventually, they will destroy this nation.
    So, I ask, who are the “weeds” that need plucked? Who are the people you’ve let slide with their racist comments and remarks? Who are the people you’ve seen racially profile someone? And what are you going to do about them?

    Casanova Brooks: Your Story Is Not for You

    Have you ever heard the saying, “Bad things come in threes?” Well, I’m sure you have. You may have even experienced it yourself, where you wonder, “Why me? Why is this thing happening to me right now when I’ve already got all these other terrible things happening?”
    For Casanova Brooks, award-winning real estate agent, investor, speaker and author of Real Estate: Play the Game Like the Winners, that’s how he felt when he lost his mom, his job and his home all within a matter of weeks.
    It was a lot to go through, but Casanova didn’t let it defeat him. Instead, he focused on the next steps and kept going because he saw the potential in the things he was building – relationships, a business, a future, a legacy.
    And today, he’s joining us to share his journey and the wisdom he’s gained from his “bad things come in threes” journey to survival.  Even as a young boy, Casanova had the ability and natural energy to build relationships, and as he says, “I first started with the question of what can I do to serve more?” So now, let’s dive in and learn how he’s gotten to where he is today.
