    Keith Canter: Consistency Over Intensity

    About Keith Canter: He is a financial services executive and entrepreneur who serves as CEO and Co-Founder of First Community Mortgage (FCM). Based outside of Nashville in Murfreesboro, TN, FCM is a full-service residential mortgage lender that originates mortgages in 46 states.

    In this episode Steve and Keith discuss:
    Consistency over intensity Empathy and excellence The first step to being a great leaderEmbracing discomfort in order to grow
    Key Takeaways: 
    Choose to have consistency more than intensity. You don’t have to do big leaps just to get to your goal, you only have to keep stepping forward. As long as you’re moving, you’ll get there. We must make sure that our workplace culture rewards excellence while keeping the human element in the equation and never focusing solely on performance. The first thing that a leader has to do in order to be great is to assess themselves and truly know themselves, their tendencies, biases, and what makes them unique. Trying out things that are uncomfortable produces growth. Ask yourself and your team what each of you would like to do to get uncomfortable in order to grow. 
    "Telling someone the truth is the greatest show of love that you can give.” - Keith Canter

    Not taking freedom and identity for grantedLearning from a mentor Growing an organic business Building a brand 
    Key Takeaways: 
    Never forget where you come from and never take for granted where you are right now and what you are able to freely do. Open your eyes up to the opportunity to learn from people who are successful and well established in your field. Find a mentor whom you want to emulate, don’t be afraid to ask. Build an organic business by setting up a referral network instead of relying on bought leads. Anticipate rejection and keep going in spite of it. Go out there and build your business like it’s a brand. Growth would be slow in the beginning, but the payoff will be immense once you’ve established your brand.

    The secret to success Always strive to grow Adaptability and clarity Being an active listener
    Key Takeaways: 
    The “secret” to success might sound like common sense, but it’s a tried and true method that worked for millions of people: work hard, invest smartly, and be consistent and relational. The key question everyone should ask themselves is “what more do you still need to learn about yourself?” Explore inwardly and know yourself, and strive to always be growing and progressing. As you grow and progress into becoming a better version of yourself, you need to practice being more adaptable. Take the next step and have clarity on what you’re trying to achieve. Be present when you’re connecting to other people, listen actively. Dedicate energy to helping other people find their “why” and not just articulate our own. Frame how we can be with them based on what their why is.  
    “In every other industry, if you're not always learning and adapting, and that includes learning new things about yourself and growing as an individual, then you're probably moving backward.” - Skip Willcox

    Matthew Hudson: The Magic of the Journey

    Matthew Hudson: The Magic of the Journey

    About Matthew Hudson: He is a passionate leader and speaker, devoted husband, and loving father of two kids and two dogs.  Matthew is also an outdoor enthusiast and adventure athlete.  He is a founder of multiple businesses, behavioral science junky, and a believer that the human journey is meant to be the discovery of magic.  

    In this episode Steve and Matthew discuss:
    Being there for people in their pain Accepting hardship as part of the journeyThe importance of truth in our livesSaying the truth with love 
    Key Takeaways: 
    Being there for people in their pain is one of the most meaningful things we can do. It allows us to validate people’s feelings, give them a new perspective on seeing their problems, and remind them that the pain doesn’t define them. Hardship is a part of our journey; it’s a piece of the puzzle that builds up to our whole human experience. When we start to accept it as a part of our lives and dispose of reactionary judgments, we’ll start to see the beauty in those moments too. You can’t have love, freedom, or joy without truth. You derail others’ journeys and also your own when you don’t embrace the truth. When we don’t tell the truth, we rob ourselves and others of the beauty of our journey. Truth can be communicated with love, in fact, it must be done so every single time. Truth said without love is often too bitter. We need to say the truth from the perspective of wanting the person to flourish and grow and without any negative intention.  
    “If we can learn to actually love all of the experiences, as hard as it is in the moment, we can gain just a little bit of perspective. We start to see the beauty in that too.” - Matthew Hudson

    Steve And Jason: Looking Forward

    Steve And Jason: Looking Forward

    They say every year is a chance for a new beginning. But in this world full of chaos, unresolved issues, and people haunted by their own demons, what does it really mean to “look forward” in life? That’s what hosts Jason Abell and Steve Scanlon are going to focus on today. From confronting your demons to making that huge leap of change, tune in to know how to create that new chapter in your life in the best way it can be!
     
    In this episode, Steve and Jason discuss the following:
    ●       Why don’t we like to resolve this?
    ●       Facing a demon
    ●       Creating a theme for the year
    ●       Keeping it simple
     
    Key Takeaways:
    ●       Do you have an aversion to creating new year’s resolutions? Ask yourself why and reflect on the reason. Think about something you’d want to do and imagine if failure couldn’t happen.
    ●       Whenever you commit to resolving something, expect that you’re going to face a demon.
    ●       Instead of having plans, goals, or a resolution, try having a theme for the year. Think of one word that you’d like your year’s theme to be. Some good examples are “mindfulness,” “strength,” or “relationships.”
    ●       Don’t make it complicated. What’s simple gets done. Create a broad picture but also keep your eye on what’s the next right step towards achieving your goal.
     
    “If failure weren't even part of the equation, what would you try?” - Steve Scanlon
    “Simple just seems to get done.” - Jason Abell
