    Summary
     
    How important is it to your self-image, and to your business’s bottom line, to walk in your value? We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. And in our interview segment, Amanda Buse joins us with some excellent insights and strategies on how to communicate your value to your prospects, customers, and clients … and have a business that’s both very enjoyable and very profitable. That and more on today’s show.
     
    Bob’s Thought of the Day
     
    We’ll explore:
     
    An answer to a blog reader’s question regarding the statement, “Money is an echo of value; the thunder to value’s lightning.” Why a lack of money is absolutely not a commentary on one’s intrinsic value; only the value they’ve brought and communicated to the marketplace.  Insights about the term, “walk in your value® based on the experience of Amy Wells.  
    Interview with Amanda Buse
     
    You’ll discover:
     
    Why women tend to undervalue what they have to offer. A fascinating study: women-owned businesses only make 30% of the revenue that male-owned businesses do (and the reasons behind this). Two keys to earning at the highest levels: a system, and belief in yourself. How fear and imposter syndrome hold us back. A simple way to stay in touch with your network and earn more referrals.

    171 Grappling with the Gray - Rabbi Yonason Goldson

    171 Grappling with the Gray - Rabbi Yonason Goldson

    Ethics, Relationships, Business, Morality, Decisions
     
    Summary
     
    Deep within our hearts, we always know what the right thing to do is, don’t we? Or do we? We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. And in our interview segment, Rabbi Yonason Goldson joins us with some ancient wisdom that will help us to navigate through those often gray areas that life sets before us. That and more on today’s show.
     
    Bob’s Thought of the Day
     
    We’ll explore:
     
    Some examples of what are known as “moral dilemmas.” An example of an ethical dilemma from the book, Grappling with the Gray.  
    Interview with Rabbi Yonason Goldson
     
    You’ll discover:
     
    Why it’s not always about knowing what the right thing to do is. The purpose of study: to learn how to think in an ethical way. The difference between the ethical and the legal. Why we are sometimes resistant to do the right things. Why compliance can be the enemy of ethics. The importance of refining yourself so you can consistently do the right things. Why relationships are the bedrock of success in every aspect of our lives.

    “There’s no app for being ethical.”~ @yonasongoldson #ethics “It’s not a question of always knowing what the right thing to do is. It’s knowing how to approach complex situations and do the best we can to get to the most equitable and ethical resolution.”~ @yonasongoldson #ethics “Legal is not necessarily the same as ethical. The last refuge of unethical is … ’But it’s not illegal.’”~ @yonasongoldson #ethics

    169 Confirmation Bias - It’s Real!

    169 Confirmation Bias - It’s Real!

    Confirmation Bias, Thinking, Decisions, Emotions, Beliefs
     
    Summary
     
    Imagine a world where we only accept as truth that which we already believe and ignore whatever we don’t. Actually, you need not imagine it. It’s … what we do. We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. Then in the second segment, we’ll see what we can do about lessening its effect on us. That and more on today’s show.
     
    Bob’s Thought of the Day
     
    We’ll explore:
     
    A reminder about cognitive dissonance, which we discussed in Episode 133: it is one of the most negatively powerful ways a person will unconsciously allow their emotions to keep them from making a correct decision or a necessary change. A definition of confirmation bias: “The tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one’s preexisting beliefs or hypotheses.” Daniel Goleman’s powerful quote, from his book Emotional Intelligence: “The emotional mind takes its beliefs to be absolutely true, and so discounts any evidence to the contrary.” An example of confirmation bias from a conversation I recently had on Twitter.  
    SEGMENT #2
     
    We’ll explore:
     
    Why people who are suffering from confirmation bias... don’t realize they are doing so. The importance of continually asking yourself--especially the more strongly and passionately you feel about a thing--if you might be experiencing confirmation bias. A recent interaction when I realized I had confirmation bias.  
    Click to Tweet
     
    How does confirmation bias dramatically hold us back from clear decision-making? Find out in this episode of The Go-Giver Podcast. #confirmationbias   The degree to which one suffers from cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias is directly proportional to the emotional investment they have in their current  belief. #confirmationbias Stay aware of the possibility that confirmation bias might be running through your thought process, and ultimately, your decision-making process. #decisions When it comes to confirmation bias, the most important thing we can do is to continually stop our unconscious thinking and ask ourselves questions. #thinking
