    695 - The Most Common Reason Why People Fail To Get Results From Proven Strategies, Techniques, Frameworks and Formulas

    695 - The Most Common Reason Why People Fail To Get Results From Proven Strategies, Techniques, Frameworks and Formulas

    Several years ago, I realized that my brand, Podcast Answer Man, wasn't fully reflecting the guidance I was providing to those seeking strategies, tools and techniques to [fill in the blank]. That's why I decided to evolve my brand to Mindset Answer Man - to provide a better indication of the kind of advice I was giving.

    As the result of working with so many people, I began to recognize patterns between those who were successful in achieving their podcasting goals and those who were not. What I found was that despite having helped many people launch their podcasts, many of them had built their podcasting efforts on a shaky foundation, leaving them unable to experience the full potential of podcasting.

    In this episode, I explore how important the order of operations of STATE, STORY, and STRATEGY is to creating the most successful outcomes.

    694 - Develop a Healthy Mindset: Unlock Inner Strength And Achieve Lasting Success!

    694 - Develop a Healthy Mindset: Unlock Inner Strength And Achieve Lasting Success!

    In this episode, I share an enlightening conversation with Michael Hyatt about his upcoming book, Mind Your Mindset, releasing on January 31st. Our discussion contains powerful insights about mindset and how to transform your thinking to achieve the results you desire in life. This is an episode that you'll definitely want to listen to a second time and take notes! 

    Below are just a few of the insights contained within this episode:


    Everything rises or falls on your thinking.
    Michael paid his executive coach "an unbelievable amount of money" to come and meet with him once a month.
    The tough question: “What was it about your leadership that led to these results?”
    The problem is not “out there.” The problem is “In here.”
    It takes someone seeing your situation from another perspective to help you see other possible narratives about your situation.
    The Narrator is not you!
    “I am not my beliefs, I’m the believer.”
    “Don’t believe everything you think.”
    It’s like we are writing this novel that is the story of our lives. We get to decide what facts are relevant and what meaning is derived from those facts. The meaning that we assign will determine our feelings, which determine our actions which determine our results in life.
    “What do I have to believe for me to feel this way?”
    “What was I thinking yesterday that was empowering?” “What was I thinking yesterday that was disempowering?”
    The power of journaling for self-reflection and self-awareness.
    The power of giving a friend the permission to question our thinking.
    The power of Power Naps.
    “The More I Rest, The More I Receive.”
    The power of pre-loading your subconscious mind with a task just before going to sleep at night.

    692 - Harnessing Equanimity to Conquer Borderline Business Burnout

    692 - Harnessing Equanimity to Conquer Borderline Business Burnout

    Harnessing Equanimity to Conquer Borderline Business Burnout
    Business burnout is an all-too-common occurrence for many entrepreneurs and business owners. 

    It’s a state of exhaustion, stress, and frustration that can lead to decreased productivity and the inability to stay focused and motivated. If not dealt with, physical and mental health problems can manifest.​

    I know what it feels like to experience business burnout. I’ve been there, done that, and have almost died from it.

    It’s a crushing feeling knowing that you’ve put in every ounce of time, effort and energy that you have to offer into something, only to feel like you are spinning your wheels and not getting very far.​

    My two week trip to the hospital, in January 2009, was a wake-up call for me to realize that taking on too much and pushing yourself too hard can have severe consequences.​

    As I look back on my life, I realize that I didn't need to work harder, I simply needed a better state of mind to work from. 

    We all have moments when we feel overwhelmed and it can be hard to find a way out of it. Stress can be a powerful force that can be difficult to break out of. When we're stuck in a cycle of stress and anxiety, it can seem logical to just keep pushing and trying to work harder, rather than taking the time to step back and reset our state of mind.

    The Power of Equanimity​
    I hosted a live stream with my great friend, Ray Edwards, where we had a deep conversation about "the power of equanimity."

    Equanimity is the ability to remain calm, composed, and balanced in the face of life’s challenges. It’s an essential quality to cultivate, especially in times of uncertainty and difficulty. 

    In our conversation, Ray and I discussed the difference between our knee-jerk emotional reactions and our rational responses to the issues that we face.​

     If we master the skill of equanimity, we will have what it takes to navigate the tumultuous waters of life and business with grace and wisdom.​

    This podcast episode contains this powerful conversation.

    The day after this podcast episode was published, the following email came in:

    Hi Cliff & RayJust wanting to genuinely thank you both for sharing the truly inspiring conversation you had in episode 692 of The Cliff Ravenscraft Show.I woke up at 4 am (a bit disrupted sleep schedule while battling through covid) and listened to your conversation and reflected upon my own life.The nuggets of refined wisdom you both distilled in that conversation are pure gold.I stopped the episode, got up from my bed, made a cup of coffee and started manually transcribing each and every word you said in that episode.I am now looking at these notes and am amazed how dense they are and much insight I am getting for my own life.I sense that I've only started and will go over these notes many times in the days to come.Anyway, a honest thank you to you both for having and sharing that inspiring conversation!BestYours trulyName Removed 

    If you've ever felt overwhelmed, exhausted, and stuck in the cycle of business burnout, I urge you to listen to this episode today.

    691 - When You Feel Like It Is Time To Start Something New, Something More Aligned With Your Heart

    691 - When You Feel Like It Is Time To Start Something New, Something More Aligned With Your Heart

    If you ever wondered why I shut down my Podcast Answer Man business and rebranded myself as the Mindset Answer Man, this episode will give greater insight into my decision than I've shared previously.

    Recently, I hosted an "Ask Me Anything" session on the topic of "The Business of Coaching."

    Kate Nankivell let me know that she would be participating live and that she planned to ask the following question: 

    "I’ve just started a new podcast called The Shape of Kate. I’m at the beginning of my much needed weight loss and regain my fitness and health journey and I want to share this journey and so much more through this podcast. Now this represents a departure from my current business so I’m thinking about my monetization strategies.

    My clear intention with this podcast is to be an inspiration through sharing my journey but not a weight loss coach or fitness expert. I’ll interview those experts as I go. They rightly claim their expertise. My monetization ideas at this early stage is to bring on advertisers who pay for results. Eg when people who listen and click through to their offer and/or use my coupon code they pay me an agreed affiliate fee."

    When it came time to have my conversation with Kate, I had already created an outline of insights that would have helped her optimize the effectiveness of her affiliate income streams, plus I had created a list of several other income streams that most people have not considered.

    Yet, within a few moments into our conversation, I closed the browser that had all the pre-outlined insights that I had prepared. It had become clear to me that there was a much more powerful and important conversation to be had.

    Have a listen to this episode to see where our conversation went.  After the conversation, I give a commentary on the overall experience.  I know that you'll gain a lot of value from this conversation.

     

    If you are resonating with the content that I create, you will find one or more of the following products and services extremely valuable and life transformative.
    1. Train With Cliff Audio Journal Podcast - This "audio journal format" podcast contains many of the same insights that my clients who pay tens of thousands of dollars to get from me directly. Plus there are "behind the scenes insights," about how I operate my business, that have enticed nearly all my existing clients to subscribe to this show as well. Go to http://TrainWithCliff.com to learn more.

    2. Free The Dream Online Course - Do you have a dream or goal that you are struggling to turn into reality? Some have gone through this course in a single day, others have taken a weekend retreat to go through it. However, everyone who has gone through the six hours of this material has completely altered their experience of the world. Go to http://FreeTheDreamCourse.com to learn more.

    3. Next Level Mastermind - If you are full-time self-employed and are not yet in an ongoing mastermind group, stop what you are doing and read every word and watch all the video content found at http://NextLevelMastermind.info.

    690 - Take Your Business To New Levels of Success With Great Sales Funnels!

    Did you ever think there would be a day when you would get an episode of The Cliff Ravenscraft Show where I would be talking about building and optimizing Sales Funnels?

    No, it's not a joke. That's really what this episode is about.

    In the introduction, I mentioned how I had "unconsciously" judged Russell Brunson and his Click Funnels Brand as something that was not in alignment with my way of approaching business.

    While I'm not sure that I'll ever become a Click Funnels Customer, I am already a fan of Russell's "The Secrets Trilogy" which are three books titled DOTCOM SECRETS, EXPERT SECRETS and TRAFFIC SECRETS. 

    I've already received so much value from the first few chapters of the first book that I've committed to doing a full commentary series in my Train With Cliff Audio Journal Podcast on each of these three books.

    Have a listen to this episode and you'll discover why.

Cliff Ravenscraft is truly inspirational. I seem to be improving my mindset every time I listen.

YupOkay ,

This dude is insane

Do people know this guy is a crazy religious fanatic who thinks the Earth is 10,000 years old and dinosaurs walked with man? You’re taking business advice from a moron. There are folks leaving reviews asking Cliff to go back to being who he used to be. They are complete morons. If you couldn’t tell he was an egocentric narcissist from day one you are an idiot.

Spiritual Insights in Business

I really appreciate Cliff’s inclusive and informative style, including his live Clubhouse episodes. I especially enjoyed his affirmations episode, which thoroughly explains why they do work for some but not for others and how to solve this issue. Thank you, Cliff, for positive vibes and leading by example!
