    Sick of Being Grateful

    Sick of Being Grateful

    I’m not cynical. It’s just this time of year, gratitude seems to feel forced. Personally, I wake up annoyingly perky with “thank you” as the first two words to escape my lips. We don’t need a day for this. We need to decide what or who is in and what or who is out of our circle. Recognize the small stuff. Acknowledge yourself. Take a breath. Celebrate in your own way. I’m grateful for you!

    Checking Under The Hood

    Checking Under The Hood

    It used to be that at gas stations, you could get full service. You’d get your gas pumped and you’d learn about the fluid levels in your car. That doesn’t happen much any more and what’s true is that we don’t pay much attention until we get a service notice or until something goes wrong. Even then, we need to take action to get checked out or to get rejuvenated. And that means, drawing from that analogy, that you need to take action to take care of yourself. Put “get-away” days on your calendar every couple of months. Check in with yourself about your relationships, your finances, your career, and your philanthropy. What could use more attention and what distractions do you need to cut out? It’s time to check under the hood! It’s also time to invest in yourself and check out my signature small-group intensive: http://ExponentialSuccessSummit.com Thank you for listening to One Sharp Sword!

    Interview with Nicky Billou

    Interview with Nicky Billou

    Nicky Billou (pronounced like Baloo the bear) is a thought leader, business coach, and inspirational speaker. He’s a podcast host and international #1 best selling author. Ultimately, he helps people get out of their own way so that they can value themselves and the work that they do. On our call, you’ll hear him talk about being a Christian from Iran. He reframes sales to being about service and reminds us all to serve others out of suffering. His model is one of Problem - People - Profit and he notes that Business Is A People Game. Nicky challenges us to think about how badly we might want change (though change scares most people). The clients he works with are: Decisive Committed Coachable Resourceful He notes that to boost your earning power, you need to triple (yes triple) your investment in your own personal and professional development. (And I can tell you from personal experience as an elite mindstate coach that this advice is absolutely right. Work on yourself so that your growth allows you to serve more people at a higher level.) Remember to Value Yourself and to Value What You Offer. Beware of expectancy bias (or leverage it, too).

    Growing Pains as Life Works For You

    Growing Pains as Life Works For You

    You may have recognized that you’re not the same person you were 20 years ago. What matters to you today is different from what mattered, even yesterday.

    In this episode, one big question, one core observation, three core tenets, and one thing to repeat show up: Do you know what happens if you don’t step out of your comfort zone?

    Absolutely Nothing

    Most people spend more time planning their vacation than they do planning who they want to become to have the life they say they really desire.

    The three key principles involved in Exponential Success are:

    Values - what you had won’t be what’s needed for where you’re going

    Vision - get real clarity about where you’re headed (sometimes people need coaches to gain that clarity)

    Vitality - get grateful, get happy, and be that beacon of light for others

    Life Is Working For Me - repeat that with the emphasis on a different word each time. Say it out loud and listen to yourself as you do!

    And, it’s time to register for the next Exponential Success Summit. You do not want to miss out. Be among the 12 at the table (I keep the group small on purpose).

    Will I Do It?

    Will I Do It?

    We all have so much on our plates and to-do lists, that it’s important to keep that question at the forefront of your mind as you take on something new. Will I Do It? Or, might it just feel like something fun to entertain? I have started so many programs and books with the best of intentions and, when it comes down to “will I do it,” the answer is no. No, I won’t actually do it. And when I make that decision, I cut myself free from something that began to feel like an obligation. If the answer is “yes!” then the next question is “when?” - and that means pulling out my calendar and putting THE thing on the calendar in a given time slot that doesn’t compete with anything else. Cool, right? If you’ve got something on your to-do list that’s rolled over multiple times, then either delegate it, do it, or take it off of your list. It’s just that simple! Keep making your magic. See you here next week. Check out http://ExponentialSuccessSummit.com = Wayne =

    Winning or Succeeding

    Winning or Succeeding

    It’s important to redefine success. Winning seems to be about making someone else lose. The truth is, well, that happens. It’s also true that this is an abundant universe and we can support each other in getting better.

    And that’s the key to this episode - How do you define success? Is it by doing or having more than someone else? Or is it that you got what you wanted and needed and you lifted others along the way?

    You decide!

    See you here next week and remember to check out http://ExponentialSuccessSummit.com to dive in deeper.

A gem that your podcast library needs!

One Sharp Sword is a podcast that delivers the goods on so many levels.
Dr. Wayne Pernell infuses his tremendous skill with his big heart, and contributes a tremendous resource to the personal development field. He provides impactful content in episodes of varied time frames (to fit all schedules), which are full of his own wisdom and which he also wields through the perspectives of his talented guests. He is kind, smart, considerate, and wise, all the while delivering the tough love paired with the tools we all need in order to raise our own bar. Thank you so much Dr. Pernell!
