    180 Standing on Her … Tippi Toes - Sarah Nuse

    180 Standing on Her … Tippi Toes - Sarah Nuse

    Happiness, Success, Integrity, Accountability, Intentionality
     
    Summary
     
    What does it really take … to be happy? We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. And in our interview segment, international franchisor Sarah Nuse will share wisdom from her fantastic book, Destined for Greatness. That and more on today’s show.
     
    Bob’s Thought of the Day
     
    We’ll explore:
     
    The idea that the pursuit of happiness is part of our human nature. That acting incongruently with your values makes it nearly impossible to be happy.  A converse truth: when you’re willing to stand on principle—even turning down a business opportunity others think you’re crazy to refuse—you WILL be happier. Knowing that much more often than not, staying true to your principles will not be self-sacrificial but rather the best business AND financial move you could make.  
    Interview with Sarah Nuse
     
    You’ll discover:
     
    The fascinating story of how needing to earn some extra cash in college would lead to an international business career. And how desperation can catapult you to greatness. The power (and necessity) of doing the uncomfortable when building a business.  Sarah and her sister, Megan’s Shark Tank appearance...and the intrigue that transpired. The importance of aligning your business with who you are and who you want to be. Details about Sarah’s Destined for Greatness Accountability Program. How accountability and intentionality can help you accomplish your dreams, expand your goals, and deepen your relationships.

    179 Tweets … and Deeper Meanings

    179 Tweets … and Deeper Meanings

    Twitter, Social Media, Quotes, Excellence, Listening
     
    Summary
     
    The challenge of communicating effectively on Twitter can actually help us to be better communicators. We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. Then in the second segment, we’ll look at a few powerful tweets and then expound on them a bit in order to attain an even deeper understanding. That and more on today’s show.
     
    Bob’s Thought of the Day
     
    We’ll explore:
     
    Why Twitter can be a hotbed for misunderstanding, hurt feelings, and an insult or two. The importance of caring enough to ask ourselves how what we are about to say (and how we are about to say it) will likely be interpreted by the other person. Why we must train ourselves to communicate in a way that works for everyone involved.   
    Segment 2
     
    You’ll discover several timeless, wisdom-filled quotes and why they are so powerful:
     
    "Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you." –Ruth Bader Ginsburg, former United States Supreme Court Justice "Excellence is not an ‘aspiration.' Excellence is not a 'hill to climb.' Excellence is the next five minutes. Or it is nothing at all.” –Tom Peters, author of The Excellence Dividend "The older I grow the more apt I am to doubt my own judgment." –Benjamin Franklin, inventor, printer, and United States diplomat

    One is never too successful to retrain their brain. We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. And in our interview segment, Frederique Murphy shows leaders all over the world how to do that very thing. And that’s what we’ll discuss. That and more on today’s show.
     
    Bob’s Thought of the Day
     
    We’ll explore:
     
    A surprising experience from a number of years ago: while speaking at the Million Dollar Round Table of Insurance’s international convention, I discovered that many of the very top producers had major issues with actually asking for referrals. The importance of developing an abundance mindset in order to overcome an unconscious belief system that keeps us from attaining success and abundance.  
    Interview with Frederique Murphy
     
    You’ll discover:
     
    How Frederique came to devote herself to the topic of neuroscience. The moment she knew she was going to help others discover what she learned herself. The difference between the mind and the brain. What neuroplasticity is, and how you can make it work for your success. Why you must lead beyond the edge of your comfort zone. Three elements you must have in order to change: beliefs, attitude, and behavior. The power of using imagery to help your brain visualize reaching your goal.
