    Passion Struck

    Passion Struck

    There’s a difference between living a life that ignites your passion and simply existing. You get to choose which one you want. Our guest today, John R. Miles, is here to teach us the proven tactics to living an intentional life that matters.
    John is a leading authority on intentional behavior change, personal growth and mattering. He’s a celebrated leader, speaker, entrepreneur, award-winning podcaster, and author of a new book called “Passion Struck: Twelve Powerful Principles To Unlock Your Purpose And Ignite Your Most Intentional Life.”
    Today we talk about John’s “Psychology of Progress” and the importance of micro choices. We also talk about John’s “Deliberate Action Process” which is: Analysis, prioritization, ignition, execution, measurement, and renewal. We also touch on his concept of “Anxiety Optimizer,” finding the sweet spot of being on the edge without going over the edge.
    We cover a ton of ground in this episode- buckle up and get ready to learn!

    Shine - 10 Disciplines for Maximizing Your Impact and Inner Peace

    Shine - 10 Disciplines for Maximizing Your Impact and Inner Peace

    If you think your anxieties and insecurities are giving you that extra edge, extra drive, think again. In Gino Wickman’s newest book, “Shine: How Looking Inward Is the Key to Unlocking True Entrepreneurial Freedom,” he shows how inner peace leads to more positive, productive energy.
    On our episode today, Gino shares with us the 10 Disciplines to achieve that peace in very practical, and simple terms. If you’re afraid he is going to advise you to go live in a hut on a mountain top, don’t be. His tips are for driven entrepreneurs just like us.
    The bottom line: While you’re achieving outside successes (wealth, status, etc.), you can also be working on inside successes (living authentically, calming your central nervous system, etc.). As Gino will tell you, if he can do it, you can do it!

    The Lies That Mislead and Derail Us

    The Lies That Mislead and Derail Us

    Are you lying to yourself? There are lies we tell ourselves all the time that trip us up. They’re little things we whisper in our own ear that we think will help us be productive, build good habits, or grow our business, but they don’t. In this episode, we’re going to go over the most common lies that mislead and derail us.
    The list includes things like “Oh I’ll just multitask and get these things done quicker” or “I’ll just rely on willpower in the moment.” Those are statements that only lead to struggles and failure later. Don’t use them to plan your day, much less your life.
    We talk frankly about prioritization, focus, discipline, willpower, and work-life balance. We give you the truth to counteract those little lies. Tune in and learn what to tell yourself next time you’re tempted to mislead yourself.

    Creating a Culture of Growth

    Creating a Culture of Growth

    You’ve probably heard of the fixed vs. growth mindset. But did you know it applies to whole organizations, not just individual people? And, just like with individuals, there are certain things you can do to change, improve, and support an organization’s mindset. Today, Dr. Mary C. Murphy, a protege of Carol Dweck and an esteemed psychology researcher in her own right, takes us through her newest book, “Cultures of Growth.”
    Business organizations are full of mindset triggers– situations that shift individuals’ mindset to be more fixed-oriented than growth-oriented. Evaluations, high effort assignments, and feedback can easily create fixed mindset thoughts of “I’m terrible” or “I’m great” instead of “What can I continue to get better.” Dr. Murphy discusses how leaders, and even non-leaders, can purposefully frame these situations to prevent a slide into a fixed-mindset and create an overall culture that supports growth mindsets.
    This episode is jam-packed with neuroscience research, actionable tips, and “aha” moments. Dr. Murphy really puts on a masterclass for us. We hope you get as much out of it as we did.
    Check out Dr. Mary C. Murphy’s book, "Cultures of Growth," today. In a world where success seems reserved for a chosen few, Cultures of Growth unveils a radically different approach to creating organizations that inspire learning, growth, and success at all levels.
