    497 | The Lies Villains Tell Themselves, Part 1

    How has examining victim mentality changed or challenged your thinking?

    Exposing the lies and combating them with the truth will help us to live a life that’s healthy and full of meaning. Victim mentality is just one way that we can rob ourselves of that better life.

    And while we’ve probably all “played the victim” card - more than a few times - it can be really tough to see when we’re being a bully. Now, you may be thinking, but I’m a nice person, I’d never hurt a fly… Well, let’s walk though this a bit.

    Everyone goes through seasons in life when insecurities drive them to make poor choices, to lean into others, or even push them around. We’ve all been there, especially when we lose our sense of worth or we wrestle with unhealthy behavior patterns.

    Think about it. No one is immune to the weights, wounds, and disappointments of life.

    Have you ever put pressure on someone else to get your own way?
    Have you ever used emotions, words, or actions to get others to conform?
    Have you ever uncovered someone else’s weaknesses in order to hide your own?

    I’ve said this before, without examining our lives, thoughts, and actions, our tendency is to get stuck in harmful and distorted thinking patterns. Without even realizing it, we might even be harming others to get what we want or what we think we need.

    Today, we expose the other side of Victimhood by looking at the lies that Villains tell themselves.

    Don’t be afraid to uncover the truth, look at yourself in the mirror, and take the necessary steps to change for the better. Your life - that better life you’ve always wanted - is waiting for you.

    And, I can tell you that your relationships with others will benefit as well!

    Enjoy today’s episode,

    496 | The Lies Victims Tell Themselves, Part 2

    496 | The Lies Victims Tell Themselves, Part 2

    Have you ever played the “victim-card”? I’m sure that we all have at one time or another. Why? We’ve all been duped into believing some of the Lies Victims Tell Themselves.

    Here’s the deal, we all struggle with untrue recorded memos in our heads, whether about ourselves or other people, and those recordings are often set to repeat on endless loops.

    These untruths, or lies, that we tell ourselves usually manifest in two distinct ways: encouraging us to act as innocent victims or evil villains. Acting out, in either way, can be really unhealthy!

    On today’s episode, we’re going to take some time to examine our lives and make sure that we’re living authentically by learning to interrupt these distorted thought patterns.

    So, what’s the first step? We’ve got to recognize the lies holding us back from embracing the good life we’re meant to live! I’m sure you’re acquainted with at least a few of these:

    I’m not good enough
    I’ll never measure up
    Everyone’s against me
    It’s not (ever) my fault!
    My life is just a mess
    Life is out of control

    Do any of those sound familiar? The “victim-mentality” lens colors everything we see, every event and interaction, as something that’s happening “to us” - and not for our good.

    But, what happens when we wake up from victimhood? What happens when we discover that we are actually in control of our own thoughts, feelings, words and actions?

    494 | How To Help Your Team Own The Vision

    494 | How To Help Your Team Own The Vision

    Ever get that sneaking suspicion that not everyone on the team is fully onboard with where you’re going as a company? It’s more common than you might think!

    Getting others to buy-in to your vision is a challenge, but it’s not impossible and it can be highly rewarding! Can you imagine what it would be like for your team to become fully engaged?

    There’s nothing like having your entire company owning the vision and running with it!

    Imagine the possibilities! But that’s not where most business owners are. Sadly, most struggle to “convince” their teams of the destination and the best way to get there.

    That’s what we want to discuss today. In this episode, Brian and Joel take a stab at what it takes to develop a culture of community and commitment around the goals you’ve set.

    Here’s the deal: if your team can’t see how they’re connected to the vision, they’ll be reluctant to own their part in it. It won’t make sense to them. And they won’t be able to help you achieve it.

    But, if they’re connected, committed, and cooperative then the sky’s the limit!

    493 | How To Really Connect With Customers

    493 | How To Really Connect With Customers

    No matter what industry your business is in, you’ve likely got customers or clients that you have to interact with. But, how do you know if you’re really connecting with them?

    Do you know their needs, wants, or desires? Sure, maybe you do your fair share of market research, but do you have a connection with your clients that goes beyond the statistics?

    Have you developed a relationship, as much as possible in your field, that helps you intuitively anticipate their needs, even their motives, for buying your products or hiring your services?

    For some business owners, a client can become little more than a number; a means to a profitable end. Well, hopefully profitable. But, in our experience, this approach backfires!

    If you’ve ever found yourself seeing clients this way, then it probably wasn’t too long before you discovered that the ends don’t justify the means, at least not in the long run.

    Your relationship with your customer is the primary lifeline you have to a healthy and profitable future.

    Here’s the deal: no matter what business you have, what product or service that you offer, “You are in the people business”, first and foremost.

    So, how do you create a culture of consistent care for clients in your business? And how can you effectively communicate that care - through your team - to your customers?

    On today’s episode, Joel and Brian take a deep dive into the motivation and methodology behind developing a stronger connection with your customer.
