Points of Impact: #21 Thriveology Podcast

What is YOUR point of impact?When we think of how we can impact on the world, it can be overwhelming.  Yet, the world needs you and me to step up and make an impact.  You and I need to make an impact.

Where do you start?

There are 5 levels in your life where you can make an impact.  And there are 4 steps to making that impact.

You can pick any or all of these levels.  And you can bring your impact resources into any of these areas.

Let me tell you about the 5 levels, the 4 steps, and the 7 resources you can identify as you bring even MORE impact into the world.

After all, we are designed for impact!

Your Uncomfortable “Comfort Zone”: #20 Thriveology Podcast

Our uncomfortable comfort zone.Last week, we began a new series on making an impact in the world.  I revealed my belief that we are built to make an impact.  I firmly believe that we are designed to make an impact.  And yet, we often stay stuck, not making the kind of impact for which we are capable.

In this week’s show, we look at the 7 biggest excuses we use to NOT make an impact.  All are based in our attempts to stay in our “comfort zone.”  Yet, a comfort zone can be very uncomfortable.  It is just the world we know.  It can be uncomfortable, but feels safe.

Yet our truest self, our most centered part of our existence, our Spirit, calls us to a higher place.  We can avoid that voice in many ways.  But it keeps on calling us.  It keeps on trying to pull us forward.  We may pull back.  But there is another option.

Where will YOU make an impact?

How Will YOU Impact The World?: #19 Thriveology Podcast

How will YOU impact the world?I believe that we are designed to make an impact in the world.  When we don’t, the world suffers and we suffer.

When we do, the world benefits, and we benefit.

So what keeps us from making an impact?  Why should we make an impact?  What difference does it really make?

We explore the power of being a person of impact, of making a difference, and how small impacts reverberate through space and time.

How will YOU impact the world?

Grill That Sacred Cow! — Innovate: #18 Thriveology Podcast

Don't let the Sacred Cow keep you stuck.  Innovate.Perhaps it is that feeling of Spring, and my grill waiting for me.  But I have been thinking about Sacred Cows — those ideas, principles, choices, and actions that are not questionable.  They keep us stuck.

And they head us for trouble.  When something becomes the “Sacred Cow” in our life, family, relationships, or business, our potential for growth is stymied.

Eventually, what was sacred only keeps us stuck.

In this week’s podcast, we look at the cycle of innovation that leads to stagnation:
1)  Innovation

2)  Tradition

3)  Sacred Cow

And we look at how to change that.  I offer five ways to make sure you don’t get stuck.

Let me know what you think!


7 Ways to Immediately Enhance Your Thriving Mindset: #17 Thriveology Podcast

"Imperfect action trumps perfect inaction."  Harry S. TrumanLast week’s podcast covered the difference between the thriving mindset and a “failure to thrive” mindset.

As with most things in life, this is not an “either/or.”  It is a continuum.  We all have some elements of a thriving mindset, and some elements of a failure to thrive mindset.

You CAN shift your mindset to a more thriving perspective — and it is easier than you might think!

I cover 7 ways to enhance your thriving mindset in this week’s podcast.

“Failure To Thrive” versus “Thriving” Mindset: #16 Thrive Nation Podcast

ThrivingMindsetGlassesA mindset is like a pair of sunglasses.  It colors the world you see, but after just a few moments of wearing the glasses, you forget how the color is changed by the sunglasses.

Your mindset colors the world around you, affecting how you see and understand people and events.  It also affects how you react and respond to people and events.

Which mindset do you have?  Do you have a “failure to thrive” mindset or a “thriving” mindset?

Make A Mistake!: #15 Thriveology Podcast

Make mistakes and Thrive!“The successful man will profit from his mistakes and
try again in a different way.”
? Dale Carnegie

We all make mistakes.  No way around that.  But do you try to avoid making mistakes?  STOP!

That doesn’t mean you should stop caring, become careless, and try to make mistakes.  But perhaps we should all risk making more mistakes.

In this week’s podcast, I examine our fears of making mistakes. . . and why those fears can keep us stuck!

We came into this world, making mistakes repeatedly.  That is how we learned to crawl, walk, run, talk, read, and just about every other skill.  And we didn’t care back then.

Then one day, most of us adopt the rule, “don’t make a mistake.”  Too bad!  That usually means we are playing small, missing opportunities, and not likely to grow.

Join me for this podcast, “Make A Mistake!”  Then let me know what mistakes you have made, what you learned, and how we can ALL make more productive mistakes!  Leave a comment below.

Anatomy Of An Apology: #13 ThriveNation

ThriveologyApologyHave you ever apologized, only to have it backfire on you, the other person even more angry than before?  Have you ever had someone apologize to you, but for some reason, it left you feeling more frustrated?

I’ve been there — on both sides!  And after watching countless apologies in therapy sessions (some good and some more like a politician’s “apology”), I noted some “rules” to apologies that work.  An apology that works is one that a) takes responsibility for actions, and b) leads to reconciliation.

Would you like to know the 4 rules to an effective apology?  I cover it in this week’s Thriveology Podcast, the podcast for thrivers.

Take a listen and let me know in the comments area below, what rules did I miss?
