    EP 49: From Luxury Real Estate Burnout to Leading 550+ Humans with Scott Taylor

    EP 49: From Luxury Real Estate Burnout to Leading 550+ Humans with Scott Taylor

    As a second-generation realtor whose career has included nearly every aspect of real estate brokerage, Scott Taylor knows what it takes to succeed in the space. He has received numerous accolades, has worked as a Keller Williams team leader, and is currently the Operating Partner for the Keller Williams Columbia Market Center. Despite his natural talents and real estate prowess, Scott reached burnout in 2011, and after taking a year off, he decided it was time to turn things around and align with his purpose: helping people reach their potential. In today’s episode, we hear about Scott’s journey and how he went from making one of the biggest sales in Denver in 2011 to shutting his business down later that year. He talks about what he learned from his sabbatical and why that year, where he was not helping others, was so unfulfilling for him. We talk about his decision to re-enter real estate after thinking he had left it behind for good. While Scott is no longer on the sales side of things, he puts a great deal of time into his leadership skills and helping his team flourish. Scott highlights the importance of taking responsibility as a leader and the value of being a lifelong learner, even in an executive role. Rather than wanting to be the smartest person in the room, Scott always seeks to put himself in growth situations where he will push through to the next level. We also touch on why self-confidence is key and how Scott opens his clients' minds when it comes to scaling their businesses. Be sure to stay tuned to the end, where Scott shares some exciting positions he has available!

    EP 48: SUCCESS® Magazine's Ben Fairfield on Micro Adjustments for Massive Growth

    The ability to make small pivots on your life’s journey is one of the most important contributors to success. Life is always going to throw curveballs at you, and it is how you deal with those bumps in the road that determines where you end up. Ben Fairfield, today’s guest, is not only a masterful coach, interviewer, entrepreneur, question-asking machine, and Managing Director of Coaching as Success ®Magazine, but he is also highly skilled at adapting to whatever comes across his path. Ben has over 8500 hours of one-on-one coaching to date and is passionate about impacting others on their personal development journeys. In this episode, Ben talks about how he came to be in his current position. Despite what many people would have you believe, there is no such thing as an overnight success. This does not mean that you have to suffer and endure endless hardship to ensure success, but growing requires continual work and effort. Ben talks about his passion for servant leadership and the power of letting joy in as you feel it, rather than always postponing it. Our conversation also touches on the value of bringing coaching into business, how to move past your limiting beliefs as a leader, the richness books can bring to your life, and the skills coaches impart to their clients. Ben's energy is infectious, so be sure to tune in today!


    Key Points From This Episode:

    EP 47: Under Pressure?

    EP 47: Under Pressure?

    No matter who you are or what industry you are in, you have likely faced or are currently facing pressure. This self-induced pressure is rooted in disempowering thoughts that are weighing you down rather than propelling you forward. In today’s episode, Chris tackles the topic of pressure and shares some actionable advice for those who find themselves caught in a state of feeling like they are not doing enough. As with everything, addressing pressure requires radical honesty about what you are feeling and doing the work to change these thought patterns. It is not simply enough to have positive self-talk; you have to put in the work to change the way you think. So, sit down and ask yourself why you are feeling so much pressure, and take stock of what it is you truly want. This might scare you, but that's what relentless growth is all about.


    Key Points From This Episode:
    The first step Chris would recommend if you feel like you are under pressure.How to find the patterns between the thoughts that trigger you.There is a difference between positive talk and transforming how you think.The work is not done when you have let go of self-induced pressure.Relentless growth requires you to show up for yourself every day.

    EP 46: What if You Made it Simple, Fun, and Easy?

    EP 46: What if You Made it Simple, Fun, and Easy?

    What if you made things in your life easy? This might seem like it’s possible for others, but not possible for you with your unique, stressful circumstances. Today's episode is about showing you just how fun things can be when you give yourself permission to let them be that way. Of course, there will be difficult patches in your life, where you perhaps don’t have all the time or money you want, but if you put in the effort you can absolutely get to a state of flow, and take everything in your stride. It is not always easy to give yourself permission to have fun because we have been conditioned into believing that life has to be hard. However, Chris walks us through four key areas; time, money, delegation, and stress, where you can take decisive action to ultimately simplify your life so that you have more energy to do what you love. Tune to hear it all!


    Key Points From This Episode:
    How to know if this episode is for you.Sometimes we need permission from someone else that it’s ok for things to be easy.A story of a client Chris worked with and the shift they ended up making.The question to ask yourself if you feel like you don’t have enough time.Everyone has limiting beliefs around money, but it does not have to stay this way.A challenge you can set yourself around trying to make it easy to earn more money.Why business owners are so reluctant to delegate.When you delegate, it benefits so many more people than just you.So many of us don’t know what our lives would look like if we were not stressed.Consider what would happen if you let go of the stress you are carrying.Take what you have learned with this episode and run with it!

    EP 45: Be Where Your Feet Are

    EP 45: Be Where Your Feet Are

    When you think about the most stressed-out person in your life (yes, it could be you), do they seem happy to you? Are they living in the moment, or constantly lost in thought, anticipating the next problem in their lives? In today’s episode, Chris talks about presence and the value of being where your feet are. We all have negative thoughts that pop up. But when they spiral and snowball into a series of anxious feelings, we end up getting taken out of the present moment. There are real costs when you are not present. Not only do you waste time, have poor focus, and experience less joy, but you are also just not living life in the fullest way you can. Yes, being present means that you sit with those lows because there’s nowhere else to go, but it also means you can revel in the highs because you are truly experiencing them. If you feel like you need more presence in your life, don’t miss out on today’s show.


    Key Points From This Episode:
