    EP563: TL NUGGETS #156 - Matthieu Mehuys - How To Create Thought Leadership That Sells

    We should understand that success isn't just about making money, it's about making a meaningful impact and living a life of purpose. Matthieu's journey is a testament to the power of mentorship. When he first started his entrepreneurial venture in regenerative farming, he faced numerous challenges and uncertainties. Through Nicky's guidance, Matthieu was able to clarify his vision, set achievable goals, and develop strategies to overcome obstacles. Mentorship gave him the confidence and faith he needed to navigate the unpredictable ground of entrepreneurship.

    You need to step outside your comfort zone, embrace failure as a learning opportunity, and cultivate a growth mindset. You have to embrace challenges with resilience and determination, turning setbacks into stepping stones toward success.

    What exactly is regenerative farming? It's a farming approach that's not just about growing crops; it's about healing the land, restoring biodiversity, and creating a thriving ecosystem. And why does it matter? Because our current agricultural practices are wreaking havoc on the planet. Climate change, soil degradation, you name it. Regenerative farming offers a solution – a way to produce food that's good for you and good for the environment. And we all should support it. Whether you've got a green thumb or not, there are ways to get involved in simple ways. Start by educating yourself. Learn about regenerative farming practices and how they benefit everyone.

    And, if you've got a backyard, why not try your hand at gardening? It's not just about growing veggies; it's about connecting with nature and contributing to something bigger than yourself. But let's not forget about our farmers – the unsung heroes who feed the world. They're the backbone of society, yet often, they're struggling to make ends meet. That's where we come in. By supporting regenerative farmers, we're not just buying food; we're investing in a better future for all.

    Check out Matthieu's show, "The Regenerative Design Podcast", and his new book "12Universal Laws of Nature [https://www.12lawsofnature.com/]".

    EP562: Mia Durston - Do Hard Things

    "Either I continue on this path, and I knew it wouldn't end well. Or, I had to make a change right then and there."

    "You're never gonna be happy if you're just comfortable and consistent your entire life, never challenging yourself."

    It's never too late to make a change and become the best version of yourself. Recognize the toxic influence of certain relationships. You have to understand the power of proximity and choose to surround yourself with individuals who support your growth and aspirations. By cutting off negative influences and nurturing positive connections, create a supportive environment conducive to your personal and professional development.

    Mia Durston brings a wealth of insight and inspiration from her journey of overcoming adversity and transforming her life. Her story teaches us the power of discipline, confidence, and resilience in achieving personal and professional success. Despite facing setbacks and adversity, she made a conscious decision to take control of her life and pursue her goals with unwavering determination. In our business and personal lives, we often sense that we're capable of more, but our actions or lack thereof hold us back.

    Her journey revealed a deeper longing for happiness, confidence, and self-discipline. Her experience with Hammer Fitness was transformative, leading her to become a vital part of the team, helping others embark on their own journey towards holistic wellness. This underscores the importance of mindset in navigating life's challenges. She faced adversity head-on, refusing to give in to the victim mentality that often traps us.

    2. Stop worrying so much about what other people think. Confidence comes from within, not from being validated by others.

    EP561: TL Nuggets 155 - Raymond Aaron The Magic Of Artificial Intelligence

    "You can either catch the wave or get crushed by it."

    "There is no human as good as a human who uses AI."

    Ask yourself this: "How can I do this better with AI?" Seriously, it's a game-changer.

    Remember back in early January 2023 when Chat GPT went public? That was a monumental moment. And guess what? Chat GPT isn't just for tech wizards or big companies. It's for everyone. Anyone can use it. The growth of Chat GPT has been incredibly fast. It's been faster than anything we've ever seen before. Talk about disruptive! This AI powerhouse is set to impact every single industry out there. That's how big of a deal it is.

    If you're not learning about AI, you're setting yourself up for failure in the business world. It's that crucial. But don't get overwhelmed. AI isn't just about algorithms and data. It's about unlocking possibilities you never thought possible. Things like making movies, healing wounds, or even planning your next epic road trip. AI can do all that and more.

    EP560: Debra Basch - From Victim To Victor

    "If I didn't have that mental image of myself… 'You're strong, look what you overcame.' That mindset… I just understand what a journey takes. And sometimes it takes doing really hard things to get what you want."

    Resolving extreme trauma. It's a heavy topic, I know, but believe me when I say that with the right attitude, it's possible to overcome even the most challenging experiences. In business, trust is paramount. Whether it's with clients, partners, or colleagues, trust forms the foundation of strong relationships. Without it, everything else falls apart. One nugget of wisdom to share is the power of emulation. You know, approaching leaders and saying, "I want to be just like you. So I'm going to do everything that you do so I can glean the good stuff." It's all about learning from those who inspire us and adopting their positive qualities and habits.

    It's not just about lifting weights or running miles; when you strengthen yourself physically, you automatically strengthen yourself mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It's a holistic approach to personal development. This is more than just a workout regimen; it's a mindset. It's about pushing yourself beyond your limits and realizing your full potential.

    Expert action steps:

    1. What you're doing in the right direction, keep doing it. Consistency trumps intensity.
    2. Focus on progress. Whatever it is, don't look at where you've come from and focus on the positives. Progress can be measured in a multitude of ways.
    3. Be honest. If you can't be honest with yourself you'll never achieve your goals.

    So, if you're ready to level up in life, reach out to Coach Debra Basch into her DMs on Instagram (@coach_debra_basch [https://www.instagram.com/coach_debra_basch/?hl=en]).
