"Welcome to the faith on business podcast i'm your host edwards founder of the faith and business playground i'm here with mentoring accountability on this pumpkins help you be yulia help you embrace your in a weed so you could make jesus ceo of life and business and i'd like to remind did you everyday and i will continue to remind you we are having conversations around these podcast episodes the writing from i give you at the end of each episode we're talking about this in more detail i ran my free facebook groups if you're not already a member take this is your mind you're you're invitation to come and join us at facebook dot com forward slash groups slash yulia christian entrepreneur but i will put a link to that in the show notes as well not today's episode is especially if you if you've been listening alone and you're thinking i don't know i'm stuck i'm not sure i'm so what i wanted to remind you today in the story i want to bring to mind to you today is the story of israelites when they crossed the red sea they did it a couple of times two or three times i can never remember which one it is and everytime i mentioned this i wanna go back and find jack and then i carry on talking i forget to wait till the next on maybe this time i remember i wanna say but it's definitely at least two i'm supposed to be three time gold how in the world he held back water so the israelites could crawl on dry ground and not direct however one of my favorite parts about that story is that be the priest the levi invites the on the people carrying bianca's the covenant which is the representation of gone they went first and not only did they go fast if you need that account in more detail you will see that they stoppage imagine they you're standing on the edge of the reserve i mean it wasn't a red with a great big see some action that you're imagine you're on the beach and you're gonna start walking into the water okay i'm gone just punching the water he is making away clear but there's account yet because he's doing it from that in the distance he's not doing it for way or standing he stopping at the other side of the sea and so we've got these these priests levi and he's carrying the cabinet have laying around and i imagine i picture them so lifting up that they had like so sketchy ready things didn't they they they would dress is but not travers is my understanding of it so i imagine imagine you so the flowing clunky gum into some kind of you ended up happening in the world you stick so i have this visual picture of these these priests waking up they had that gum and a little bit and so starting possible across it's worked in other words they have to get their feet wet they didn't stop crossing the red sea on dry ground they were paddling around it was what it was public cold probably not as cold as the see see him in south wales of course because they were there and it's much warmer that but still it might have been a bit but it would certainly be wet and says that have laying around in the world to god is doing a miracle all the way over that what would have happened and don't know they on this question i'm surmising but what would have happened if these lights have stayed on the sun again i don't know if it was a sandy beach quaint looked like but they wanna face just stay on the dry ground and they refused used to budge until they had drawing ground worker we don't know the answer to that question what god is being gracious enough to pocket and then they would have carried on who knows but they had to get their feet wet and i you know everything that happens in the bible which told all scripture is god breathed use teaching will be incorrect in trenton righteousness all of that stuff is automatic thing in the bible every story that we made is that help us grow as individuals in our relationship with god and so i believe that the story is important because it's a reminder to us when you're trying stuff when you're stepping forward on a new venture you have to get your feet wet not only that the president is already being set gumri will may already be doing a miracle that somewhere you just can't see it yet i feel stuck there and you know as it relates to you dr ratio in a weird day if you saw that go in i don't know i'm gonna wait until the movie on so you might be waiting a long time and so my encouragement to you today is if you don't know then just stopped and that is today's writing from because i wanna ask you watch all these areas of life all the things that you can stop it when do you know so if you don't know what it means for you to be the got the pass and god made you to be in every single area of your life of business and exactly what it looks like i would challenge that if you're telling me i don't know a tool i challenge i say well actually that's not true that will be areas of your life and old business way you are already being fully self expressed you're already left in order to read about today you already being the best and god made you to be whatever language you wanna user i'm not i'm so you're writing prompt today the thing i want you to consider that i would invite you to share it in the facebook group the thing i want you to consider is why areas of your life do you know already stopped all that you know so wave and you're like business can you stopped being yourself and so i gave you the example i think it was a couple of days ago you're back at my notes a couple of days ago i gave the example of this podcast where very consciously made the decision but unless the dog started barking there were some major noise interruption so for example tons of coaching in a few weeks time we're having some becoming they're gonna be like making me big noise with a great big so jack to break the concrete flooring i won't be recording the podcast that day let's just say that because that would be stupid you won't be able to hear the words however the rest of the time you will hear me for later my words because that's one area well i i can be very transparent and i can just be myself and so i like to leave biting someone goes up so that's my example of one area of my life where i like to think i am fatty you yet i am myself what you see is what you get have people that listen to this and they'll go if you're like already know you have conversations with people and we'd never spoken patrol but thanks to the podcast and you know conversations going on in the group they feel like they already know me because i right how i talk what you see is what you get so the puck comes to me is a very easy example of that you would have raised examples fee you check and so this guy did not see what we talked about last week about giving you a dose of certainty in order to give you a certification is said to write this stuff i want to encourage you to consider well jim unite the right areas of your life can you already stopped being yulia what does that look like and then just stuck so if you don't know just stop these realized how to get their feet wet i mean you is you go on this journey and do this where it will have to get your feet wet if he doesn't know almost pick something i'm trying it because god knows johann he knows at your intentions omer go on even if and i've talked about this before and i suspect it will come again but even if you have the best intentions and you genuinely trying your best but you still kinda get it wrong god is big enough and gracious enough and loving enough that he could win team that situation i got up saturday before i've had situations where i want to do some training for example and like i said take all right so many do they then let this this and this happened and then i waited a little bit about five seconds and then the pieces this this and this happened and so i did it did i pose and give god space defined shame ian punit ridge no i didn't so i can't always hindsight looking back i can honestly say they're doing that piece of training would won't go had in mind i did the training it was great and this i lead and things for me as a result was that god's intentions me i will never know because i didn't give a chance say however he is big enough and loving enough to use that situation unused not training for example to to get the ends and for good purposes i'm the same is true for you and so i want you to let go of this as much as possible easy for me to say i know but as much as possible and got helping you let go of the fear of needing to get it could be wrong let go the save need not only on and you and i just stopped showing some thing because if you sit there and do nothing you will know you'll make no progress forward it's fine betcha yes of course presley alongside guards ideally you know but having off the show you the way forward until you get in there is not it follows him get your feet wet see what happens because if you are continues leading he will close correct as as needs me but if you don't stop you're never gonna night and say that reminder

EP003 How To Develop A Vision
"Uh-huh. Welcome to show number three topic. For today is the number one factor that influences the success of transformation initiative that is have a clear vision. What is vision, and why is eight numeral? Vision is a future manifestation of your company. Where do you aim to be it lists your companies goals and objectives vision need to be clear and simple? So everyone can understand and buy into the vision. Your vision must align with your company, values and culture. And the fact of Asian has two main components. One clear goes to. As tragic plan. Goals. What we want to achieve and why and plan is a roadmap of how are we going to achieve those goals? A good vision statement also describes what kind of customers you want to serve what unmet market needs you intend to address and how benefits statement, which describes why what value you drive at the end of the completion of the storm's formation Africa. In these benefits must not be limited to corporate benefits. But also describes what is in it for the stuff. Why should they make sacrifices to deliver on the company vision? Vision is whiter because it guides you through difficult times time of conflicts. Say you are at a crossroad and struggling to decide on which bath. To take. Your vision helps you by analyzing the outcome of each bat and hauled outcome alliance to the ultimate goal of of your vision. Therefore, you do not want 'em be guilty. As decision making will become difficult. Strategy plan. As stated earlier is a roadmap of how are we going to achieve those goals? Therefore goals are an input to developing your strategy. Glenn? Tragic plan is like a GPS GPS for your business. It draws a road from your current state to your desired future state. Anytime you are lost or you go off track or you hit a roadblock. Your vision will guide you back on track. You're on my can't change. But it must always remain tied to your vision and your goals. A strategy plan is also an important health. Check tool for your business because it helps you measure where you are at any given time with the euro regional, right? So you can take corrective action when you are behind. Or of course, you may ask what drives organizations of their strategic plan. Two things number one. Taking on too many in significant projects all competing for same resources. Number two. Lack of governance control which allow scope creep. We all know that we achieve our business objectives by implementing projects. However, every or manage the godless of this is have a limited budget and resource constraints. Hence, it is vital. That we select the right project to fund. For example, to gain more customer and increase sales you need to implement a new CRM application and to improve operational efficiency and use customer attrition. You need a mobile app that allows your customers to deport any service interruptions, and tracks Arista quest. However, like every other organization you to have a limited budget and resource constraints and can only fund one project. Does you need to ask yourself? What is my strategy goal? Is it to gain more customers if yes than invest in the Seattle pigeon as if it is to reduce customer attrition, then decision is to investor mobile app? It nutshell having clear goals, enable you to intelligently decide which projects to fund. Second driver. That takes you off your strategy plan is scope control. In my twenty five plus years of experience. I have observed that when things get tough company starts to change the original scope. Which translates to changing vision which leads to annoy fullfilled goals. Therefore, it does imperative that before you embark on any project. You must ensure two things. Have a signed off scope statement by sponsors and the senior leadership team and be collectively established project priorities. We all know that every project has tipple constraint. Scope, schedule and budget. You must deter mined at the onset, which of the three constrain is farm was open to trade. Pies on belief. You are building stadium to host opening ceremony of the next on game. Your date of completion is set in stone. But if you are pressed on time, you can decrease the scope clause a section. Or increase the budget. Because you go live date cannot change in my expedients of Alberton scope statement is essential to control scope, and it must answer six questions. One. What are my objectives? Clearly state what when and how much. Ample implement a new CRM application by June thirtieth at a cost not to exceed half a million. What are my deliverables? What are my milestones? What are my functional requirements? What are my nonfunctional acquaints and the difference between functional and nonfunctional requirement is simple functional. Quite example, is my system should accept credit and debit card. Non-functional also known as technical quadrants. My system must be able to process one million transactions. All. Response time far transaction not exceed five seconds. And so on. And last, but not least. What is the acceptance criteria for my system? As a side before are well written scope statement help you to tightly manage all scope changes. Still changes will come up, and when they do in sure that all changes are approved by the same group that approved initial funding and scope. So we cut a wide subject today. And if you have any questions. Please feel free to Leach me by contacting me through my website at CJ, the one dot com. Bottomline vision is the foundation of your transformation program. Therefore, it must be simple to understand clear. So there is no ambiguity the Listrik. So you can achieve it. Really list benefit. So, you know, why are you doing it?

The Different Tenses of Grace
"August Eleven The different tenses of grace. We always pray for you that are God. May Make you worthy of his calling. And may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you and you in him according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. Second Testimony Ins, one eleven and twelve. Grace is not only God's disposition to do good for us when we don't deserve it. We call this undeserved favor. God's grace is also a power from God that acts in our lives and makes good things happen in US and for us which we also don't deserve. All said that we fulfil our resolves for good. BY HIS POWER VERSUS ELEVEN And then. He adds at the end of verse twelve according to the. Grace. Of our God. And the Lord Jesus Christ the power that actually works in our lives to make Christ exalting obedience. Possible is an exertion of the grace of God. You could see this also in First Corinthians fifteen ten. By the grace of God, I am what I am and His grace toward me was not in vain on the contrary I worked harder than any of them though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. So. Grace is an active present transformative obedience enabling. Power. Therefore. This grace. which moves in power from God to you at a point in time is both past. And Future. It has already done something for you and in you and therefore it is passed and he's about to do something in you and for you and so it is future. Both five seconds from now. And five million years from now. God's grace is ever cascading over the waterfall of the present. From an inexhaustible river of grace coming to us from the future into the ever increasing reservoir of grace in the past. In the next five minutes. You will receive sustaining grace flowing to you from the future. In this you trust. And You will accumulate. Another, five minutes worth of grace. In, the reservoir of the past. For this. You give. Thanks.

It's good to have you back this episode of the podcast is brought to you by philosophers book of inspiration. This is a book that I put together it's over three hundred quotes insights revelations from some of the greatest minds from the arts from religion from philosophy. So it's really a composite of all of the leaders from all different walks of life in one book, so check that out. I'm going to leave a link to that in the show notes you can look for it there. You can also look for it on Amazon dot com. Just look up the leader spoke of inspiration or you can also get it on my website mind and soul society dot com. Thanks again. Guys and enjoyed the episode. This is the Michael Elliott. No matter what you're doing. No matter your position. No matter your goals. No matter the situation, no matter what on the line, the mindset you take to what you're doing is absolutely key. It's critical. It's the top thing whenever I'm taking on a new endeavor. If your mindset of me, personally, my mindset isn't right. Nothing else is going to work. Well, K? It's going to trickle down everything. So mindset is key. So today in this podcast, I wanna go over to critical mindsets too key mindsets for entrepreneurs or soon to be entre preneurs. Now, if you're not an entrepreneur now, or you don't plan on being one immediately in the future don't out, yet, this can still work for you. Whether you're working for someone else, whether your, it's a project or working on your playing sports what? Whatever the case you can find something for these two mindsets. Okay. With that being said, I'm going to let's get into them roquan. But when I say, mindset, I wanna preface this mindset, another way or another word phrase we can use, is, you know, I look at frames. What kind of frame where we looking through? How are we framing this phrase or this mindset? Okay. So number one of the two is the fray, I'm gonna put him in phrases. Number one is I don't see obstacles number one is when you when you're approaching something, new whatever comes up, be it. Good. Be a bad be positive negative. You do not see them as obstacles, okay? Because let me tell you going into new entrepreneurial endeavor going into any any new endeavor. Right. Whether be relationship. A business project a job. It doesn't matter, you will inevitably have obstacles and challenges your mindset before you even begin. Okay. Before you even begin is that you're not going to see anything that approach that arises, anything that arises as an obstacle. Okay. If you don't. So let's think about that. Okay. I'm not seeing obstacles, what am I seeing everything that pops up? Be good be bad. What are you seeing? You're seeing opportunities. And you can phrase that in frame that any, which way you want, whether you wanna take the frame of my favorite is an opportunity to grow. Okay. So we both know these things challenges can be burned some. They can be draining. They can be challenging that's why before they even show up. We want to have that preset prebuilt and mindset with us that. Oh, this is an opportunity for growth. This is an opportunity to improve to try my character to improve my character to improve my leadership to build my experience, just keep going whatever one works best for you, but use them use one of those frames. I don't see obstacles. I see opportunities. That's where you wanna focus. Okay. How you approach. These challenges with your new business. With your new clients. How you approach these will mean everything. Come to it be approach it rather, with the ideal frame number two of the key mindsets for an entrepreneur number two is to put in this phrase. I'm not surprised by my success. I'm not surprised by my success. So the question that leads me to the question I have for you, because a lot of people give me push back on this. Well I mean I thought I could do it. I, I tried it. I started this because I had an idea that I could do well, but I'm still surprised rarely does that happen. Guys rarely does it happen in an entrepreneurial endeavor, a new project. Okay. How can you have success, if you do not expect it? You can't. How can you be successful something? Big something meaningful something important to you, something challenging, if you don't expect it, if you go into something not expecting success. Don't go into it at all. Let's just save you a bunch of time right now. Don't even begin if you're not sure, don't begin be sure be positive about the outcome. So the phrase again, I'm not surprised at my success. I'm not surprised by my success. That's absolutely critical. Never ever be surprised at how well you do it something K never ever be excited. Celebrate your successes big small but never be surprised. Then nevertheless question for as we as we go down. This tree is how can I not be surprised? The answer is two-fold at the same time, it's both very simple the answer, and it's very, very difficult. It's simple because it's easy to comprehend. It's difficult because it's hard to practice consistently. Okay. So it goes back to the foundation, the foundation is this, you must see your success before it happens. And you must see it many, many, many times. So what do I mean by that? Your success has to have happened, several hundred times in your mind before it ever materializes and comes to fruition in reality. You have to envision success. I remember a story, and I don't remember the quote exactly. But I remember story of Michael Jordan talking about before games, he would he would imagine himself hitting all variety of shots. He would imagine his jersey and how it looked. He would imagine the other teams defenders because he knew who was on the other team and how they would look guarding him and how they would look when he would make the shot and how he would feel how he would look hitting the game winning shot. Are we taking that much detail to our meditation to our focus on our success? Are we sitting down? Are we taking time to really visualize? And I don't mean think. About it for five seconds and never doing it again. I mean, visualizing to that detail visualizing to the two people responding to what you say to in a meeting to people giving you the feedback that you want to the handshake to the new project to the new software to the new, hire all of these things you have to visualize them before they ever happen. It doesn't have to be anything more than that. Okay. It really doesn't doesn't have to be any extra hocus pocus. It's literally putting that picture mind, replaying, it over and over again and believing it will happen for you. That's the focus, so the two the two mindsets guy the two key mindsets out give you. You don't see obstacles. You're not surprised ever buy your success. Take those with you have them prepared have the Bilton to your mind and you will not fail. So to you to your family into the world may be blessed. Thank you for listening to the Michael Elliott podcast for writings by Michael and won't podcast episodes, gung to Michael Elliott don't net.
585: The Good Place S4E5 Review: "Employee of the Bearimy"
"Indiana we just go out and Lincoln cow and corn. I'm pretty sure you don't actually do you really now now hello place it was nice to sort of see Michael struggling with the return to the bad place this time I liked his you know being scared of being host we got enough each of them I see what you mean I I actually felt like there were some Mrs in this episode because so what do you think about this episode I liked this episode I liked the plot and the bad being through the season I think this might be my favorite episode mostly because like we got a little bit of each of the main characters and it all oh did really well together outside of the new people who just got pushed to the side again mostly but you know the people we care about unguarded has her meanwhile on the blood Michael and Jason are underway to rescue her Michael gives back to Jason He's all memories I thought the same thing of course she wants something to do we all wondered have something to do so far if I'm and with the pretense of torturing but sean has something else in mind and brings her own station Jason's per-performance as torture Eric gives away to game to Janet Michael gives an impassioned speech about their role in the human livers and blows up a couple of demons including Biki you've seen about Janet's through victor are taking advantage of demons belief that all of this is just a great show for demon gun and to the dismay of Sean to get away and destroy the breach it's on the plot eleanor plans to move the humans to allay cows to ease the strain on Derek to both to entertain but she's how something else in mind I didn't there there were some some good parts of scenes where I thought that they they had a chance to go pretty deep with these characters but I'm not sure he didn't even the helm while Derek continues to malfunction instigated by the honey he's self resets causing everyone in the neighborhood to recall up skew the he's the real deal and she plays along right when they're going to depart the bad place unnoticed picky come Sunday on stays with her suits really did much character wise for anybody that was just another bit of plot for them to go around so and then also I don't know I saw them actually do it so wake with with Janet like for me the big the best seen in the whole episode was when Janet was seeing hey everyone Andrew Pontius greetings so to start we're going to do a small re Cup weird wants to do now kind of turn it around and say well that is like she's the being good was all she was gene Jason Talk and so it was one of these sort of things where Jason was talking and he was doing his relatively bad job of it as he always does but then in the help he can learn from mistakes they slip into demon corn and played the role of Piquionne Glen and Michael and Jason Suits with the plan of being allowed to visit there I thought that was some good character development for him and it was nice that they sort of addressed what we'd feeling about Tahani the seasons all the characters all seemed a little bit too basic and simple to what we're expecting Radi great screenwriter we always love it felt to me like baby workplace episode and and in and when she turns out to help state and he so she shops into Labor Tunde help they talked to try and convince him to play at four thousand puzzle a lot simpler than than I was expecting and everything seems to go very fast maybe the way that they were able to have honey in the first season was she was this socialite and she was good at it but she was Joseph sister and very shallow and so that seemed like Oh that was gwen talking Jason but then Janet noticed that you grew as it was actually Jason they had that really worked Sabih so that's called employee of the very mean so he's trying to Turtur Janet we her Michael so to lackluster results if they were simplifying earn for the sake of the plot predicted this season in a way that wasn't as interesting to me as her original portrayal in seasons one and two were but then that was really really brief because after that Kinda went through though shenanigans with Vicky and Vicky is a character but I don't think that confrontation thing that the thing that was her her challenge was being jealous of people and now that seems to be gone I it felt like they were told to me plot that we got seem more like I pacified draft rather than a complete episode of the place that has the kind of of all of the characters get enough screen time was to really water it down I get what you're saying I think I think part of it honey is rolling thunder says is just too too simplified and Jason and Michael Day solved that makes sense yeah I agree well they did move forward a lot of things it felt very ham fisted and the kind of what I liked about it to keep them all pretty evenly on the screen is also maybe why they had to cut corners to make things just kind of go quicker and easier so always but I liked what he his struggle with trying to control it seemed realistic and they didn't put him in too much which they could have done what would get it I did identical jokes though I think this one's pretty funny as I think they used Derek well in this episode they haven't thirty two Berry first-grader way in a way they don't really do much they just show up and I I am glad that Tony more plot got more chance to do things but I don't necessarily like where they're going with her like the whole thing I I get like wanting to see more derek struggling with the plunger but that's also something we've seen before is people struggling with the plunger with the puzzle which is just basically Chidi over thinking things that was that was quite clever to do that he can still do that he was what he was trying to overcome the the defense mechanism of the button rank which is that you would it be grab jetson leaves I mean that wasn't a super master planner anything they're they're all gonna what did he really was he just sort of distracting himself to the button was that the idea thanks Oh really short with the scene where two Hani is waiting around for Derek to have done it and then everybody falls over and she says something like finally over five seconds when she doesn't it's just gonNA connective tissue to to move things along but it felt like there were a bunch of scenes like that even even the whole lake house just to kind of leave it who knows if we're probably never gonNA see any of those scenes and if we're supposed to be carrying about how those people are getting you know the thing with the the scrabble tiles and the glass is just just Omega the physical comedy and this was was pretty good it was a funny scene but I didn't quite get I didn't get yeah I thought that they should have done a little bit more struggling before finding a solution Senate and other times like just it would just be rehashing it if they hadn't struggling over and over again with it sure but it's they're struggling with thin Mendis of eighties style house Tab is the medium place soda right taught for example what happened with Glenn why did they take him to play Yup I was wondering some of the scenes felt like they were they were pretty quick with other I did really like eleanor thinking on her feet to make up seen about I'm saying maybe maybe make him try one more time before succeeding when there were a bunch of scenes like that we kind of talked about it but there were a bunch of scenes they like the the scenes that seemed shortest I think are still the ones with the people who we don't really care about like they introduced forever that seemed like parenting moved to me like if she's really bothering me yeah so this is what we're doing now element or you know seen Michael struggle a bit more spend more time in the bad place because it's nice to see it there himself I feel like that's worth twist deserves the thirty seconds of screen time that it missed I'm not saying like make it a five minutes Komo number two indeed sneak back into the house where he gives Simone Brake cylinders heart to discuss her frustrations we del in our who can afford but it probably just means that they don't have enough episodes to be able to do that got more more planned that they want to get through yeah I feel like if there's I didn't feel like there was any kind of risk and it really seemed from the beginning to end that like that the giant was going to long like that's just happening offscreen that's that's fine but I still think that the the blood was takes gray takes gravity from everything it feels like everything is going to be solved easily and I never felt like Michael and and actions or something are trying to help them out Jason to understand him which is great that was funny when then but then they didn't bring going to be a problem with the final season I'd rather it be the day squeeze a little too much and then that we have episodes that feel like filler so in principle I agree but I feel like this abyss owed because of the speed of everything it Vicki as Michael and Michael we're GONNA get scenes with about a Nigga Janet's Duke Out Somehow when the joke machine and were in danger or or that the td what's going to find out about the would place being run by Derek you think you're going to die or you have to plead the with whoever's going to do it that they shouldn't do it and to he had to do that with himself because he was trying to press the button and finally he just said no no but yeah I feel like this could be easily two-parter it would have benefited from some areas actually may have worked a little better to where we have gotten some more character Has Anyone opened a bottle on good Janet I don't think anyone's and I remember eleanor open bottled on they were kind of building up to Eleanor being like being overconfident but with an even she's still kind of tap dancing around and trying to make everything work and I thought that was kind of good maybe not necessarily development for her but more of seeing her whereas a leader and seeing her sort of keep things together even when she doesn't feel like she could like I I do hope that that gets paid off that another she's either rewarded for her she showed that she can do more ambitious things later on 'cause she's been enduring these trial by fire last episode ranger even where it felt like in that episode she was being overconfident and she was Gonna get something that's going to go really wrong and even though that didn't quite happen back-back Janet bad you and it's going to stay there so I think we're GONNA get scenes with bad Janet yes yeah right in the same way we got scenes with you know to grow a little bit yeah she always feels like seeing control she never seems out of whack or still waiting to Michael was going to come back but you know what you're saying you can see the situation where everyone medium blaze false over and them and the she immediately takes experiences over and over even if everybody else really kind of kind of hasn't like Jason doesn't really change this episode will never really changes but this week so she was just trying to help her friend but I don't know if not for all the missteps gotten and yeah we didn't feel I didn't feel that with with this episode yet did feel like we were gliding a little bit The net and they've done better than you know they kind of had the chance to make him a little different when he gets his memories back and they didn't really do that they just use it for more jokes which is fine because it's Jason Nfl that way when she gave me the pep talk where it's like she's telling her that you're you're knowing where your forks and spoons go does amber -tunities to fix our thing she doesn't a dropping crisis mode or anything she's like okay honey maid and I guess there wouldn't have been too many obstacles this week I did I did think there was a little bit of risk with cheating you fucked up but I can fix it like I have an idea and she's always she
Don't worry about them
"Hi, everyone. This is tammy owner worth in prices in today's podcast it's titled Don't. Worry about, them. So recently I just wrote a book called loving relationships. It is on kindle. and there is a podcast about talking about the book but Either way. So just recently did a video Mike Video type commercial about the book and I posted on instagram like I usually do but I was a little hesitant about posting it on facebook. facebook. Really is page where you know like my family and friends and stuff like that. People actually know mere on. But a lot of my support actually comes from instagram. So I have no problem posted to know instagram but Li- times sometimes I don't really post. Things on my personal. FACEBOOK page and I don't know why it's just the whole point is Sometimes you kind of get mixed reviews, things like that and. You just never know what you're going to get or whatever. So at the end of the day, like I said, majority of my supporters or anything like that for the brand is actually on instagram. So usually just share on there. So anyway, I was working with my co-worker and I was like, yeah, I didn't even post on facebook and she was like why not you know what I mean. So I ended up posting on on On facebook and then after a while. Ago By the grace of Guy I started to think I was like in his not any shade anyone at all but a lot of times we are. worried about. What other people might say Or think when they haven't walked in our shoes. and. So a Lotta Times just say for the for instance, I may worry about with some way might say about my video or even the point that came out with a book. And then I might man but the thing about it is the some of the critics that you might have never a book. They never wrote a song if you're songwriter. They never played an instrument. They never been a chef and things like that. At last times, we're worried about what other people say. Versus has actually just. Going at their dreams and don't we're supposed to do. Now. The funny part about this because by the grace of God got already gave me you know this message. So in the process of God giving me the message and me actually recording this podcast. Something happened. So I'm very transparent. So let you know so anyway. I posted the video like I stayed it you know got good for you. But there was one person. And I know I know who the person is and all that I'm one detail who he is but. It was one person under Under the status. And he put. my and then put like A. Like a Mosey. And for five quick seconds, it was like do like really like what is the purpose of the point of you putting that underneath? My My status like you know what I mean. For five seconds that was like the reason why you know because They'll be like the whole reason why you'll be like man that's why I didn't WanNa post in the first place I knew somebody was going to try to do that. But. Got I believe in that moment got with someone testing me. I said, don't worry about them and I'm telling you guys don't worry about them and then I get somebody. That basically doesn't give me the energy that I was expecting or or you even want for the most part. But. Even in that moment by the grace of God I. Thank God. Even for that moment because I was able to see is still the same message don't worry about them. You can put whatever you WanNa put unequal status or whatever, but it doesn't change. The fact that God has actually worked through me in is blessing you know what I mean. So even with you, it doesn't matter if anybody puts anything if status or they're they're not behind you one hundred percent whatever you're doing don't worry about them. Don't worry about the crowds don't worry about anything if you're doing exactly what God has called you to do. If God doesn't have anything against what you're doing. Then forget about everybody else. We can't sit up there in always be focused on everybody else's opinion or what everybody else says or anything else like that because all that is is a distraction. Now. Granted like a little while afterwards just say somebody else actually tweet retweeted are re posted what I did and was like you know less go support her book this data third but you think about it if I would have really been focused on how one person that sitting up there saying and then putting a thinking emoji underneath the pitcher then I would've missed the blessing of somebody actually share. the information about the book. So you even looking your own life. Worry about every hater or every person. That possibly doesn't go. Along With your your path or whatever God has has for you and they don't give you their response that you think you're supposed to get. If you quit right there, you will miss a blessing. So now it is time not to get distracted. Don't worry about them. God knows exactly what he's doing. You're going to have people that are gonNA behaviors. You're going to have people who not gonNA be on your side everybody isn't going to be a cheerleader. There's GonNa be some time. So you're gonNA have to pull yourself up. And you're going to have to be like you know what? No matter if anybody supports me or not I'M GONNA have to go through this because I know that's what God has called me to do. So. Continue to do that and be that and do not let anyone stop you. Night even yourself. Don't start doubting yourself because everybody is sharing liking your posted this that doesn't mean they don't see it. They see it. But at the end of the day guide has called you to continue to go through it. Because there's victory on the other side a may not feel good. But on the other side once again, there is victory there's light at the end of the tunnel guy has a plan for your life. But don't let nobody who wants to sit up there and try to be funny in in your comments stop you. Or distract you. You've come to far to give up right now guy didn't bring you this far for you to give up. Keep going. Make them even more Matt. Let guys favor sign on your life. Don't be afraid to show God's favor. Is Not being cocky or being overconfident or anything like that. You have no control of how guy favors you. How they always say favor ain't fair. But there's no reason for you to shrink in the bag because somebody else may not approve. Or what somebody else might say that's none of your business. And I don't mean that in a mean way you know what I mean but is none of your business really set up there and be worried about what other people might think about you. You're going further in the Lord. This is not what you're gonNA, end up. You're you're in season right now we'll God is moving you to where he has you to be. He's moving you to the person that he has allow you to become. You don't have time to look back. You don't have time to try to pull somebody's hand. You don't have time to get off the throne. Because, we are all kings queens. So you don't have time to address every little. Stay where you're at. Stay on your journey God has a plan for your life is not over for you. Keep going and don't worry about them. No matter what anyone said about you in the past no matter what anybody has ever thought about you always know that you have worth you have value in God, isn't done with you. So until next time being courage stay strong. Love you guys four to support until next time. Bye.
Disney Subliminal Messages
"And welcome to our off season talk show that takes a more casual casual. Look at a handful of our nation's most famous freak outs I'm your Co Host Chelsea Whatever Smith I'm your other co host Miranda Zickler and this is the American hysteria just another panic Monday hello everybody this is Chelsea see Weber Smith and I have finally emerged from my cave after the season ended a lovely woman rolled the rock away from my cave and I rose from the dead so anyway I WANNA welcome my co host this is Miranda Zickler Collo she's been extremely helpful throughout the season and along with Riley Smith Migrate Research Assistant Rand has been there used to listen to the show before we met right indeed I did and now I just listen to audio books about Patty hearst and the KKK this the woman who you remind me of who do I remind you of your mind me of that show from Nickelodeon with the alien in who lived in the attic and don't remember it was like the secret world mcdonagh Alex Mack She's not an alien confused nobody what he remembers a show if you remember the show tell me but yeah he lived in the attic and he was like with a family and was trying to blend in in any way what he could do is he had these books like these giant textbooks and he was really super smart because he was an alien and he put his mom on top of them and it would glow for a second and he would absorb in like five seconds the whole by do you remember this that's who you are thank you so much yeah and then Moran is also a very dope musician and yeah yeah so she's going to be my co-host we're going to tell you stories sort of like American hysteria does usually with the script and then we're going to take a little break and talk about it and and Be a little bit of a Karen and Georgia for my favorite murder Karen and Georgia great so all right I'm I'm GonNa Start with the beginning today we're talking about subliminal stimuli with sub meaning meaning below and luminol meaning threshold in this case the threshold of the conscious mind it's a message that's absorbed by your subconscious without you being aware of it with images too quick for the IDC or sounds too quiet for the ear to hear the first attempt at actually using a subliminal message was in nineteen fifty seven when a researcher put the words eat popcorn and drink coca cola into a single frame of Muti allegedly the researcher prove there was a fifty percent increase in sales after the film's run but then in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight the police used a subliminal message in a news report about the bt K. killer assuming he was watching for a single frame the words now call the chief flashed across ause Nice try guys shout out to you boys blue then our very own sweep war criminals snugly impish granddaddy of an America essentially destroyed or at least napped peacefully through its destruction our nation's newest sweetheart heart Ted Bundy lookalike George W Bush use subliminal message in a two thousand campaign ad when the word bureaucrats appeared and then faded into the background save for the last part of the word rats the FCC looked into it but no penalties penalties were kissed onto the head of our drowsy baby president back to the nineties to win the very likely satanic pedophile over at Disney is not inserted the words all good teenagers take off your clothes in a scene of Aladdin that many of you may remember shall we check out the clip we shall how's are little bow doing Scott good now let's listen to do it slowed down in case you didn't hear it a Disney Rep address the the rumors saying that it was Aladdin and that he was saying come on good kitty take off and go but the whispered voice certainly overlaps with Aladdin saying saying in his normal voice good kitty the urban legend was first reported on the anti-abortion Christian group the American Life League who had apparently aren't we heard about the subliminal messages via local news stories and runge who was the was the mother of a whopping eight children Trinh wrote quote Disney was almost a member of the family she said she changed her tune after the rumors he felt as if I had entrusted my kids to pedophiles she she probably through the videos in the garbage finished it's like a toddler introduction to point snuff out the rumors spread all okay so we are are going to talk a little bit about a film that most of us grew up with or if you haven't seen it you should it's getting remade and people are Royal Mail real racist about it because Little Mermaid is a not a mermaid doesn't have the same she should be covered in scales scales she's a fish she's a fish so get over it's right now any I sell so didn't we deal with this in Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella can't we all is that is that anyone Disney made it and playing country pumpkin suit joining Marian Civil God God thank you for that Whitney thank you oh Whitney and Andy Kahad hod dream dream dream a true dream anyway take it away let's hear about the subliminal messages is a little mermaid so this is a there are so many Dick's the little mermaid and so many metaphors for the female reproductive system according to some some people however the cover of the original theatrical and video home video release it is arguably the most well-known subliminal message of Disney agreed the Dick in the castle clears day clear as day you can refer to our episode art for for reference the most commonly accepted theory is that an animator was fired and before he said good riddance and left the drew a deck back into the castle on the cover the Little Mermaid the artist who created the VHS cover art didn't work for Disney he he wasn't disgruntled nor about to be fired he was an independent contractor so he was hurried through the artwork and rushed through the background detail finishing it at quote about four in the morning the artists didn't notice this fun the artist didn't notice the striking resemblance until a member of his youth church group heard about it on talk radio and called to let him know oh I thought you'd like that I really like that entertainment same in weekly ran a story and some stores removed the videos from their shelves after concerned parents complained and the gold member was removed from laser disc coffees so much well that's a that's a butte so okay so it's so much a penis when I look at it like a never it's I've known that since I was a kid like everybody knew that I talked to my roommate about it this morning she was like yeah of course over you know and so well there's another right there's another little mermaid right and that's the priests to Mary's Eric and Vanessa Evil aerial sure what they call her won't call her really real and it's asserted that he has an erection but there are shots where you can see both his knees it's that one's Bank but I mean it's still funny sure it looks like it it does but it's also like whatever earthly that was never one of my favorite went out it didn't feel as has it felt more vulgar than like spooky or like totally wasn't spooky it didn't feel like it was like a hypnotic because I feel like the bl- you like Aladdin's like the hypnotic right it's like a command whereas the other ones just like Dick like I don't know what is that supposed to do I guess like like be some creepy like introduction to inappropriate things to earlier who cares who cares I don't care my biggest question going into this this episode was why as in why on Earth would the Disney Corporation want to show babies softcore porn I was personally thrilled to find that it's all been traced back to some of our favorite large scale conspiracy theories namely the aluminum K. Ultra and the sweethearts of all American Corruption Satan and his myriad colts gene god I feel so like like like warm and coming home thanks coming home it's coming home it richer Leah's the I'm still not entirely clear on how all of these forces convalesced to spell sex in a cloud of dust kicked up by a forlorn lion with daddy issues I did find find some indication that fantasy daddy himself while Disney along with Miley Cyrus Justin Bieber and Britney Spears all sold their souls to the devil to achieve extravagant corporeal riches until they leave earth and spend eternity as minions of the underworld is the the underworld not on earth you'd have to ask Dante just go and buy Dante Buck and all flip through it and say housing space the sexy dust cloud if you were wondering was actually confirmed by one of the films animators to be a Geeky inside joke repping the art and Special Effects Department cute do we do we want to clarify exactly where that happens when Simba well you tell it it's like when Simba lays down at some point lays down the very like like ethereal pocahontas it's the same lake when she's like union it's probably the same sure sure yeah sure it's probably the same they probably use the same board do that a little bit lazy well okay I'm so sorry sorry you guys have made some felt they are now what do I do it's one thing we can't say about designating they are not lazy they're certainly terrifyingly productive please go on so the most perplexing of these urban legends to me is the one that is true in in the nineteen seventy seven save your mouth classic the rescuers down under our rodent heroes fly through the city on an albatross named Orville and past the windows of an apparent parent wormhole to the dimension of a real life topless woman a real topless woman a real what like a playboy spread not a cartoon it's quite dark to me yes she can be seen for two of the films one hundred and ten thousand frames are pals at the American Life League we talked about earlier would call for a boycott of the movie in Nineteen Ninety five as well as the little mermaid the lion King Aladdin and then Disney owned Miramax film called priest in which a Roman Catholic priests struggles with the acceptance of his own homosexuality that was the big one that they were mad about okay but then they just bundled all the sure all the no shades no no no right it's all zero to sixty four Disney denied all of the ails claims but in one thousand nine hundred nine they announced that they were recalling three point four million rescuers VHS tapes and that the offending offending image had been inserted during the post production process. I think what I really want is for the person who made this happen and the woman who ended up topless in a Disney movie to hang out and maybe let us interview them about it God what if you are out there for you know it shouldn't be that hard to figure out is because it was a playboy spread right I think so I think it will I I think that's Apocryphal and I think you're spreading urban legends again anyway it could be from anywhere I don't think it's it was nineteen seventy seven who knows what's going on and nine hundred seventy seven just saying it's drew got rescuers is that old boy the golden age of born right this this is what I'm saying is that it's not about the messages themselves but the fact that the messages are getting to us in this very creepy creepy way and we're learning this world that we don't understand yet and we're getting all these dark little pieces that haven't been explained to us before so I think that's where the the urban legend of Disney subliminal messaging really takes root is like in the kids watching watching not so much like I think that's
Time to Pause: Tuesday
"Hi there I'm S- analysis piece out podcasts. Time to pause many episode for Tuesday. And we're going to do a grounding exercise today but first let's do a mini calmed down countdown. Are you comfortable if you notice a part of your body? That isn't just make a little adjustment until you feel better. Sit of tall gently. Roll your shoulders back shiftier bottom. Close Your eyes. If he'd like I'm going to count down from three. All you need to do is take a nice deep breaths in through your nose and breathe long and slowly out through your nose if you want. You can time your breathing with the numbers whenever you hear a number free then and breathe out in between ready. Siri to one. We have five senses sight touch sound smell and taste. Sometimes if you're feeling anxious or very very worried it can be helpful to ground yourself. That means focusing on what your senses are telling you. What's happening right now? In the present moment this helps those take our minds off whatever is making us anxious and gives us a chance to come down once. You're feeling calmer you're in a better place to make good and healthy choices. You can sit or lie down for this exercise. Get into a comfortable position. Now if you'd like close your eyes let's start with her sense of sight without moving. Take a look at what you can see. Notice the colors the textures the size of the objects in front of you. Where's the light in the room coming from? Can you see shadows now? Tour sense of touch. What are you feeling around you right now? What is texture of the surface that you're on? Is it smooth hardwood soft carpet? If you're sitting. Can you feel your weight on your bottom legs knees and feet or if you're lying down what points on your body are touching the ground just notice these things that's all we're doing. How better sense of hearing? If they aren't already he can close your eyes. This will help us. Focus on the sounds around us. I'm going to pause for five seconds now and you count. How many sounds you can hear ready? Let's start now. Well done. How many sounds did you hear the? Let's try that again but this time we're going to listen for ten seconds. Ready let's begin. How many sounds did you hear this time? Was it more than last time you did. Great now we're going to focus on our sense of smell. What can you smell right now? Sometimes if there aren't any strong smells like cooking flowers or perfume in the room. It might be hard to tell if you'd like. Find a piece of Fruit Torah scented candle and take sniff. What does it smell lake? Can you name one or two more things that it smells like? If you're holding an object put it down. Now it's time to focus on our final sense taste if you have a snack nearby. Close Your eyes and have a bite now. What does it taste like? Can you name the flavor? How would you describe this taste to someone who's never eaten it before as you enjoy the rest of your snack? I'll tell you about an activity that you can do after this episode is over go for a walk and notice things that you can see hear feel or smell outside you can also try this listening game. Find a safe place to stop. Close Your eyes and focus on the sounds you are hearing. Put up your fist and then put one finger for each sound. You hear until your whole hand is open share. What sounds you heard and see if someone her different sounds then. When you come home you can draw a picture or write about it and next time you go for a walk see if you can see hear feel or smell different things. Thanks are using your sense of hearing today with us until tomorrow. Peace Out and peace within peace out was created and is produced by Chanel saying sound engineering by Rob Griffiths at bedtime.

warranty or you can get there through the link on our website Southgate Media Group DOT COM has the way they're he's still seven this stuff happens and here's Arthur flex interpretation of my theory is completely in flashback by a person who is unreliable narrator now is led me his that is a story told early which it's not and we can very easily imagine this is a story Kennedy a show we try to connect things superbly okay what's on the agenda tonight and the one joker theory that might just make everyone happy yeah go ahead this isn't the joker that nothing happens or that everything happens and here's flexing reputation of and he makes put the clock on the wall when he's at her and there are a lot of and I kind of came into what I think might be the most interesting joker theory of the social worker at the beginning and the psychiatrists at the end it's the exact same con suggesting perhaps everything that we've just seen took place in none of this happened this is one man's delusion of if he were the joker yeah I mean I heard that theory and it's like yeah certainly why psychiatrist or the social worker looking back that I'd look like third one this week the pro Sir s with me as always is the man the legend urban joker because we're in we're in the theory phases choker which means that a lot of the great each everts out there are out there pushing their theories on Joe Joker but it's just somebody else picks up the mantle well I mean again it's like assuming it's a mantle lanes my actual ideas that there is a joker out there she killed and that for nothing there's no way for him to know that Thomas and Martha Wayne were killed if he went from the story about how he arthur flecked a man who is not the joker imagine what it would be the past and future selves and this this was a point that was made by Eamon e Man's movie review will he runs up to the edge of this theory but I don't think he well I know we already hit the Martin Scorsese on capes lunatics when when Olympic otherwise I wouldn't mind talking I to the asylum his no way for him to understand that he knows that suggests she has knowledge outside of the Times sales that's him Hey Philip active show welcome back all you listeners to the show in no time at all that it was all out of time and there I think is an important point in this which is that this person could have had napoleonic he has decided he's going to tell the people in our the joker inventing outset explain six Asian on Thomas Wayne is a public figure he's well known etc He may know about Bruce Bruce Wayne you may know that apparently I mean I mean I mean that would be interesting if they did like a sit lift Todd Ville did like a series of these movies and every time it's visit they give you different origin basically every time and it's like okay one of these is true but we're not going to tell you which one is true why do we assume many of them are maybe you know I mean spoilers at the end that big riot it's like you know he inspires the real joker whatever one not even know the inspire Israel to read him he's existing in which that everything may well be in his own time sense that he's in this time sense telling the real jokers I think that there is a joker and this is a guy who is lost in time lost in space and in meaning and in delusions go from bad to worse that causes them to snap arguably Oh yeah and I think even after he snaps he wants to prove that you know it wasn't just him could what if he were her what if he was the killer what if he could be a jerk how could the jokers like his leg and Gordon has had a lot of good days part of that Oh yeah of course and that's the point is that he doesn't cause Gordon the snap because become a loser and you know yeah it's like but he's never happy he's never content with his lot and so when not for nothing this choices because Gordon to snap are really weak and pedestrian oh yeah even after Batman rescues them he told Gordon tells me joker in that story in the original elmore never has a good day here's one really bad no good Awful Day oh yeah he even says in the flashbacks a her taking pictures of her naked you know at the end of the day they're all things you're doing and the lasting effects of them while great ear any concoct this elaborate story about how he was the one who killed the guys in the subway and he is the killer clown and he inspired how can I be particularly weighing on James Gordon in that moment essentially he's trying to say it happens in an instant and it doesn't you know in that in that and more specific he wants to do other things to he wants to care for his mother provide for what he needs and also pursue you know he wasn't the loser who could you know I was at the week one Ito enough pressure everyone will snap that's why he tortures Gordon that's why he crippled bother bigger but I wouldn't call it restraint either oh it's a lot of restraint Philip well there's a lot of things he could have done to Barbara Gordon not good at his job he wants something that really arguably doesn't WanNa put it in the workforce you know maybe even within the the concept that you know it's not that it's one bad day it said it's no good days but if chopard you know basically joke career in the arts and none of these things always work out very well you have to be very lucky to make all those since work at the same time much more often as the movement but in the end maybe none of that happened not won't unless they go like the Allen more killing joke thing where it's like you know the joker you know it was interesting we interesting we're talking about the one bad dake asset and even in Alan Moore's idea the one bad day there's I and to Eleanor's credit he says yeah doesn't Ethni- it's a lifetime of being beaten down much like Arthur fleck Arthur fleck Batman because even like he's like I don't WanNa know who you are under the mask he's like that's nothing he's like your Batman he's like in you know we're locked in this thing well no way crippled we cripples her strips her naked takes pictures and then shows Gordon the pictures of his naked bleeding daughter yeah I was just I mean it's not always this person who has been beaten down who has severe neurological damage for which medication and consume but but I mean I think the the the thing with joker more than anything else he doesn't like the predictable so he would have killed her everyone were to see that coming never has a good day and he see for the tour that Arthur is unliked among his peers he is take the point if he actually had tried to do too much stuff she might have gotten the upper edge on them because reading back week monitored by surprise she opened the door he you know and then and then again this of course assuming that he doesn't know that she's actually earl because obviously if he'd known she was back girl couldn't even further yeah you know once a week talk therapy is not helping in now I mean that's a bit now for what it's worth he really should let me just bring them in by the book you know what show him yeah no this is it this isn't true her and not for nothing you know so where he doesn't even really have the option to make the right it's actually hit you have the choice to have a good day because he is yeah well that's true he he it's not the killing that that is the that is the as I say killing her crippled thus far all the time you know that's that's the thing about who the joker is he is you know he is the jester he's that deep recesses of his brain the jokers like okay Batmans my check you know in case I go too far no he's easy bay so alf aggrandizement he he wants to be seen you know he wants to be a doesn't care how he's seen he just wants people to know there's a joker Asian that he can eliminate which is Zazi Beach in how Sony realizes Oh that was the hallucination but everything else is real they're not well back at us is that you know my greatest villain is that he's the guy who didn't he did not want to get better that he preferred crazy immeasurable to content he didn't even kill his daughter well you really can you yes he is he restrained as a can make you know if you were healthy yeah this would be a very bad story but he's not healthy so it's pretty much what she did be real I'd like to know what his name Philip something or something Phillips Todd Phillips director gotTa make a hard choice to say you know what I'm just GonNa go about my business and do my thing and then of course you have that mentally ill beaten as a child Yada Yada Yada you're not you know honestly I really simply I have to deal with you because you are in what do you do you think is some you think that Arthur flick is in fact just some other random netto at Arkham asylum didn't kill anybody didn't cause and and not quite as crazy he's crazy but yeah he always says he's happy the way he is and even like he he loves his relationship corn thing where he tells himself if I see this I know I'm not dreaming and yet he's still dreaming so when he has his delusion there you know I guess that's a that's a point you know that's a perspective it's not a healthy perspective but we're not talking about the health man so you know that in a world of the better social safety net he might have gotten more talk therapy but that assumes he would have got you know that I think is the real truth of joker wall that the you know that way to be like hey what might be true none of them might be true the but my for my money my money is on other fleck isn't the joker are just telling the story of how he wishes he were it would you rather that would you rather that he wasn't the joker or would you rather that he was full blown joker maybe we could see him later on somewhere else you know what well so joe followed as far we still time is a commodity in this yeah and the idea that it's all just Arthur flex fantasy that he is a man who is insane at the end of the day the film medical studies that is based on the idea that taxi driver nothing in taxi driver happens all just travis pickles fantasy it's just it's just a way of staying deeper in the fantasy now what thing people reflect is not in fact the joker any problems simply was crazy why probably killed somebody at some point does you know you don't get you don't get that you don't get that commitment to no no figuratively and literally he is not a person you know if there's a scene that'll give you that understanding it's when the aggression he tried to get Hugh Turtle and you hope that you can survive it that's the goal you know talking about it in the beginning laughs he is the gesture yes he is more than happy to make evil if aggrandize APP that's the thing about it easier to guy who is looking to see due to the situation unless you are dangerous years of others lawyerly you can be a danger to others without accident telling someone so do yeah so for example it's entirely possible that didn't know or doesn't want to know is it really thinking about it it's like no I wrote a script scenes to scenes they think make the point that none of this ever happened so just after he gets punched by Bruce Wayne or not by at honestly the teenagers bullying you know is in no position to fight back is in no position to stand up in Oh you can take away from this whatever you want and the authorities intent is irrelevant but I actually think that in this case I would like to know the arterial the tation or do you think that he was noted that this is the joker well you know that's an entirely other concept here I think that there's a very strong argument he made that Yeah Doc Comic Book Allergy frigging something any literally fridges himself and then it it's meant to be open for interpretation it's meant to be something that you will never know because if you know 'cause Rona say I'm not gonNA argue the death of the author on this thank you let's yeah let's say that there's entirely possible those exact same stance in kitchen exact same moment and there was just this thing I saw just having like Oh wait did that even happen the most comic book and the most odd fought in this entire sear in this term movies that no one is because maybe none of that happened and then you have where I think is the most fascinating thing that no one has mentioned the thing that is tyranny more and more see my point would be that he actually he actually did he was already gone by the beginning and there are actually we'd like to know what was going for here and part of me thinks wouldn't it be cool if he was saying no he's not a joke or or maybe he is the joker in this the joker and this is what his fantasy world would have been even to the point of understanding that Oh it's it's sort of like this and that is when Arthur decides to fridge him so yeah known as the most iconic incapable of the violence was she was you know he wants to be violent but at the same time you know he's in the macy ated little while so fling ear into the refrigerator because it has to take the hot air out so it's actually going to be actually has a flow of air another aspect of the story do you think pointed what is real and what isn't clear the is going to say do you think if did he do it the way he did the leave it open to it it happened to a lot of kids they died horribly but did they call they call that frigging before that though no that was just dying in the refrigerator Jenner crazy people will say they do great things that they never did because they just want to feel important for and in the way that you say how you would like fall forward and that would likely knock the door open that's not sealed but even more to the point if the refrigerator is on its it's hit by the sign yeah I kind of took that to is like in the beginning you know he wasn't completely gone but as the movie progress his mental state just can once again ladies and gentlemen to that Activity Os Oh yes you know you see any stands in he leans against the counter type in the bathroom and then this immediate cut to the exact same need the joker now he cowers because I I've who wouldn't cower when you're being beaten by six thousand that's actually the smart don't try to escalate sure do luckily suffocate because it's not locked can open the door at any time and even if you like pass and and the next thing beginning a much more Arthur flicking away essentially there's the Arthur fleck in universe where he is in he must have killed those people he said he did is sort of missing the point that the point is that all he wants is to be seen if the only way he can be seen as away 'cause not even that happened in the you actually couldn't kill yourself in that method that he does 'cause the reason why getting locked in taking a movie and because that's the way you think about the various right taxi driver there is an entire school of demand of his life and the Real Arthur flicking a universe where he's not and I think if there's any kind of real sort of taken this it's that you know sometimes from the outside wildlife it's actually a year while the phrase doesn't come from getting killed by referred Dino the comic story I do know there's he's not going to suffocate in there which is pretty funny it doesn't die in that seat but yeah but there are a lot of moments like that where you have one this could make you suffocate is because the fridge is turned off and you're gonNA breathe all the air wells it is near sale well the fridges H it's taking in killer shaggy body in the refrigerator yes I am aware of that but then there's also the urban legend about getting locked in a refrigerant yeah it's actually not nerve in my gym bag oh you actually wouldn't separate in that you know night made the point that just when he opens the refrigerator at says the refrigerator's working so pitching in the commodore term which is yes killing someone and putting them in the Fritsch Yay Calloway came later and didn't realize that old refrigerators used to lock modern lock which is why you could never actually even if you hit in Abedin refrigerator recapping do some murderers it'll pop cul yeah and in that fits into the theme that other flex trying to tell which is like you have to see me Oh but at the end of the day you know is not a person that you know maybe the world wants to see or maybe that Arthur wants voiced to book thank you web shatter the Tristan really got excited about them when he realized that there on Youtube now and they have new episode shopping every week and look him up there on Youtube now you can watch all the old episodes in new episodes every acrobats okay what kind of fell short and so to give you a quick sense someone has created this system which sounds like it's not wasn't invited to play he's about this his reading stark where like the two leads on this why they need a band that created superhero personas because they just wanted to have fun and the really delightful like wait the acrobats are back yes both my kids are into the acrobat some very has so I better back that is good suited distortionary it's going to be converted to antimatter and beat nontoxic once it gets there so it's like yeah you know why I I kind of skimmed that Dr do number one real quick while we were talking joker so okay and that we're really seeing him so much that he wants to be seen he wants to be seeing in the way he wants and that's a whole bag of hymns but in other news whom we tell you there's no better book to talk about after talking about joker than Dr Do yes is if joker were real and unapologetic final word black hole in the moon or something that's not how black holes work that's on any of this word ass the at bats are back up yes I saw used I I I saw the article but I really didn't get their pets are and they do some great songs in created this term those around there characterize and the way you do if you are having fun with your lights and the thing is like no matter how you want to slice it it's still Bologna ovo riches might be pretty much you know wear like Steve He's gotten he's kidnapped St just hold him in his grand hall take has been around for a while clone technology which as far as we know he has no problem using as been around for awhile include it's something like the Phantom zone what exactly it's like it's a place that they're gonNA stick things and to be fair to be fair you know again one SCR I'm sure I know one scratch listen they totally deadpool's his face but what I'm going to tell you suspended upside down tempe just the biggest Phallic object that is available is doomed yeah we're just Chevron the negatives but we use the phrase black hole because that's what that's what people wanted to say what say what if it's an empty dimension or what if Reid Dot com adding he was literally the knight in shining armor charging around when reed was missing now Reed Richards's back nunes returning his calls it will not wearing the shining armor I don't have scars and to an and also one knows magic to he knows how to transfer his consciousness into other bodies Elf that's what it is I'll look at my face what's the fuck himself but he doesn't that's the problem with the base thing it's just like look at me more others don't know it's like oh well I guess I guess I gotta be the joker in this story won't his face messed up even actually I mentioned the band today that you know that just a new episode restrictions gotten endured seeing the songs around the house and whatnot and lives yeah yeah so he can be totally like like age up completely nonsense crown transfer his consciousness interact on right now 'cause we see situations in which you know the the be he's unscarred ending a wife and kids or something Jimmy extent where the bill that said tell them it's a black hole just learn the moon it's just a no I just wonder what the whole thing where they tried to float the possibilities like is it a dream or is he imagining this or is he sing like an alternate time line where everything hideous break well you know there we'll get to that in a minute because of course no one of the new thinkers talks back and let anyone call him out on it he wants to be a little bit a little tin dictator as the name implies we also see that possibly put his kinda hanging a flag on that stuff and you know it's a very interesting taken storyline well that's that's that's good dream than the bad is he's like he's like putting apparently has to put my medication scarves every night it oh yeah take it just a teleportation but thome it's a black hole probably dark but yeah so it's like fixing his face it is not that that's not what told me back with holding him back is this complete petty miss what's the flaw Gibson could someone just took a black hole up on the moon king the copper is having trouble finding his way around and apparently he's keeps he's been considerably visiting do Again his face was he had the one scratch beforehand yeah from living but tell you first of Wessex so as an example let's say they're dropping in the negative zone and read which is GonNa say well you know if we would put the toxic waste through the negative zone as it goes people don't like you might be this which of course why that you know is the superior so obvious yeah that looks a little too outwards is what I work in high tech armor though to or some g no one supervisor 'cause when someone actually calls him out on his stuff he's like well yeah I guess I see you know do is pulled the doom and then we see they're doing is likewise a little bit unhinged a commercial someone on Colombo and they try to make it loving US see here's the way it happened now what you think but what it not what you might or is the the the weakest of excuses and they got it yeah and he surrenders right away to union jack in the uh-huh yeah to bomb the country as now he's going to be all not petty for five seconds in what's his name on the covering the idea that none of this is actually happening or that it is happening just in other online and other universes import will do because of his interaction Oh oh yeah yeah because of the moon thing in the terrorist but he didn't send any terrorists up there oh hi tech armor in the Marley or well I mean again I mean it's not gonNa take the the world much to go after doom it's like up back to her cosmic lint pool self but she is dealing with is the trauma that people prefer her being able to being good with king is now and he's between these other unit or is the terrorist thing actually happening in this time line is someone trying to like get through Mata the way Wilburn okay anyway moving along with strikes back right right well tell you is what 'cause they're still time this won't goes right in this one where everything was living in the one though everything went wrong oh it had varying flag it's not like it would be hard for anyone to make a Latvian flat yep that's it there's the flag you'll get a is that it is to Yeah Oh yeah yeah it's like when they it's like hinch shorts end bikinis to brawl and one of the best building flowcharts and it is just yet we can do this we can that's great which also I love with wind pool that she is now worth it because you're doing because you know she says if I don't people don't read my books I won't survive and you know scoreboard correct Our erections with deadpool are fun because they're both actively just totally shattering walls the whole going after some private island for some reason yeah yeah yeah they were talking about the fantastic four thing things in this issue does hurt when she does her big billing reveal explained everyone what's going on and then squirrel pops up as well okay just so you know I had do all of this for the very important reason of getting very cool cover actually saw here because what sells the book Dan yet so she has to be evil to to win so she essentially all a bunch of superheroes together eh because I mean countries are coming to rest do this is there traitor in his missed two are trying to get rid of a maybe I mean it's entirely possible but then again incredible Hulk while she brings up Bruce Banner who she shoots the head this show she's not kidding she makes the and of course shooting this is a fun book I love being a trickster God I love that basically basically makes Bush look if you fight me you know out win because I'm unbeatable and Clinton was like Dang you're right okay okay but this is what you think it's like up to they're certain governments in the world who loved the take doomed down you know possibly from what he isn't that right you didn't wonder too if they're like you know if who wrote this I forget who are order if if the the point of this like oh no no no no we didn't He says he I think he can well okay all that stuff bend the state it's not all gone there's still some of that in him somewhere and believed cantwell is the Cantwell is I'm just wondering if they're trying to be okay so so she takes her and all of the younger heroes up to the survey ship that and then she brings out feels so we'll see what happens next issue but I really enjoyed that book fill up I'll go hey did you read Loki yes I did read low key at this point in the Hawk storyline if you head it's not that big of a deal and not a thing didn't they make a mention in the last immortal when they said that two or maybe it's both who knows what it is now but that was on the way to the fantastic in Calcutta's act somewhat not really though it's although again that's the this doom and more from this in which of course you know I mean obviously it doesn't make it right but it's like well why do you think I know it sucks you know I can't retouching except with your face once for those who remember during the whole inversion storylines was really brilliant I'm not quite sure where to take the story were getting in the second half of this because Alad seems Kinda like separate from Nope the cover for he tells it tells here to give her a D. Cup God unfortunately than because of the rules of her game she got scared to fight the hall as she was in the battlezone now she has to take the whole earth feels but I love some of the dialogue in this like when he tells the woman yeah you know go go meet your wife but then he s she's like walking away oh happy it's like did I just do a heroism Lee is totally owning nightmare entire time he basic- he basically road runner era roadrunner and coyote here become mortals stand right here okay I mean it's gotTa love when Tony Thorpe show up and he's like look at us three of the original ventures and
That's Not A Podcasting Mistake - It's A Feature! [S3E32]
"To, air is human to really screw things up it takes a podcast with or without a computer. UPS's happen. Sometimes leaning into our errors can uncover hidden intentions and creative growth. Hello and welcome to another podcast pontiff vacations with me Ego Tara. We are imperfect beings. It's not an overstatement. To say that, we would not be the species we are today. Were it not for mistakes? Mistakes are quite literally baked into our D. in a how we get here. Now, mistakes from a creativity standpoint when you are a creative and you screw up. They're not quite as life and death maybe not maybe a little bit less existential questioning. Although sometimes, it certainly might feel like and I. Know Some of the Booze I've made over time creativity have been really really hard on my soul I get that. I get that I understand those things. But also. You can use your creative mistakes are the mistakes in your process of making podcast to be very specific can use sometimes these mistakes to to work with these airs these errors. Can sometimes be a gift. And for this episode today I, thought I would walk you through in no particular order ten examples of what I mean by that. Ten examples of how something in the podcasting process you might be doing. Can Go, wrong And what you can do with that as a way to grow as a way to accepted way to embrace it and say, well, this is what I've done. Can I run with it. A. Little bit maybe towards the Hey, I meant to do that mentality but you know not making an excuse for anything anything. silly. So here we go in no particular order ten. Ways that you can kind of lean into these mistakes make them. So maybe for example, something that if you haven't experienced this, you will experience as I promise eventually maybe you accidentally publish your episode. On the wrong day or at the wrong time that assumes that you have what you should have a set publishing schedule a time a day. Sometimes, you just get it wrong. Especially, if you're planning things out in advance, maybe you publish things on the wrong day. Or at the wrong time as I have done. See what happens I mean if that happened you look you can't go back in time and fix it. You see there's no way to to unpublished something and then republished it again I mean you can but it's not gonNA do anything right. So, instead of freaking out over and beating yourself up for this is an opportunity to learn. What happened did the number of accesses to your file change for that particular episode did the comments changes to get more or less feedback did anything that did it feel better? Did you were you able to get stuff done differently did it did it kind of fit the? Who knows. You've got to look at the data sometimes. Now maybe. It happens in line maybe you're in the process of doing things and there's a you know if you're like me, you've got set chain that you follow. and. Maybe when you're adding in those effects, you forgot. Like? Maybe you forgot to add I, don't know noise reduction for example, or maybe you didn't put the compression always the same way that you do on the line didn't call it. I don't know something else in the mastering process that you would normally do every single time. You just didn't do well just like before. What are the results? Did it sound different to you probably so but did it sound different to your audience? Did, in fact some people comment and say, Hey, I really like it. When I had the background sounds of traffic in there because they were kind of halfway muted Internet. I don't know. You've got to figure out. We know what do you think that? Did you now have a different sound? Is it a sound that you and your audience actually likes? Maybe when you're also inside of their you maybe lineup your next segment, your segments of your show maybe. There's a bed music playing underneath the interview and the normally you come right back in with your recap. Maybe let that drag out for too long. Maybe you know who knows why this happened, but there's a three or four at ten second gap, and then you just plays by itself for Awhile. Terrible or maybe the gap is suddenly normally normally put five seconds in there, and for whatever reason you only put in a you know maybe less than a second of that of that gap. How does it sound? Clearly, it was unintentional but. Is it. Is it good? Do you like it. When that music kind of rides out for the longtime does he give people more time to think about what they were listening to or on the opposite side? Does the tighter show? Make it flow make it snappier? What did you? What did your listeners thing? What did you think looking at this thing that you've already done? Maybe, when you were promoting things, you publish the entire episode as an audio Graham if it'll actually fit right because you can do that certain tools will I to take an entire MP three file and make an entire audio grandma maybe you can't publish that to all the platforms. But what if that happened did it does it work I mean maybe even published, it did that audio get more engagement the people like it more to say, Hey, here's a new way from too. I can listen to the whole thing right here in my whatever social APP plays thirty long minute piles. Maybe so she doesn't have to be in production doesn't have to production. It could be the fact that you screwed up when you were trying to vet guest and you've got the absolute person on the program you're in the middle of asking questions and they have no idea. About the topic at hand. Okay. But do they have an interesting story? Can you find an angle in there? Maybe it's not what you thought it was going to be. But is there something you can do with that content? Later maybe not for the very next episode because you already had this plant but maybe there's some value in doing a bonus episode occasionally with some weird thing. Maybe a recording on the road and you brought the wrong microphone with you. As I have done many times you didn't bring a microphone at all even though I have who nine of them sitting over there. You know what I've got my phone you've got your phone. There are other opportunities to try something different maybe it you know it's not going to sound like it normally does when you're talking into your big SM seven be microphone so you can't do that. But what can you do different because of this mistake that you made? Did you let your muezzins. Licensing subscription lapse. oops at happen sometimes as vigilant for those of us at big productions. We we forget that's happened. Now we don't have that or maybe we can't get it anymore. Well. So what do you do? Are Their options to go to the free sounds project or some other places, and maybe it's time to go experiment find new stuff because there's a lot of different subscription services out there. You got to pay somebody. Try. Something different. Or again, your publishing, your editing somewhere else and you forgot your computer you didn't bring your studio computer with you and you just on your laptop and you don't have your big fancy da with all your plug ins. Well, maybe you download something like audacity or free tool you remember how to use these things you haven't been in a while, but they're still there maybe that raw interesting you know lesser less produced sometimes can be fun occasionally see how that goes. Maybe you didn't even schedule anything properly. Maybe you just didn't have a someone set up as a guest or you didn't have your topics ready to go or something else in the process of the schedule and throws everything. KILTER. Okay. Lean into. It. What's the worst that can happen? Just give it a shot to talk about something it. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work but you know lean in and see what happens. Maybe you forgot to socially promote the episode. You're really good about producing episodes on time and you've got this entire series, a waterfall process of going through promoting them and you didn't do it. Well. Again, what happened with that episode? Did the access points Chang did you get more or less engagement? Did people suddenly. Are Responding to you more because you're flooding your social less with all of these standard promotional I know. That was quick. Ten quick things I thought about a dozen more than I was preparing for all this. Now before we wrap this thing up I'm not talking about. Escaping and ignoring factual errors or glaring mistakes don't publish away file instead of an MP three don't put out an episode or if you do at an episode where all of the tracks are ran together one gobbledygook incomprehensible thing no one wants to listen to that. If you got the wrong date when you were talking about the war of eighteen twelve fix that kind of stuff in post. Clearly WanNa do that but the other ones treat him actually as a gift. Now. You can help me by telling one person you know about podcast pontificators, another working podcast who needs to be listening to this show sin them personal note telling them that listen to podcast pundit vacations, and if you like what I have to say, go to buy me a coffee dot com slash Yvo Tara and toss a few shackles my way helps keep the show going shows me that you love what I do buy me coffee dot com slash Ebo Tara no episodes for me on Friday enjoy your weekend. I shall be back on Monday with yet another podcast quantifications. Cheers.

"Hello and welcome to the win win effect podcast with your host Chris Ross this is the show for anyone that wants to drive company you invest your money and someone gives you a call as you go through the process you're noticing how the seller is not addressing the question foundation's focusing on customers actually winning as the outcome the win win effect podcast is a character based code for human interaction mind to bring you value to make it worth your time in a previous episode a win win which programs to achieve overall business success and fulfillment in life you will get a rare centralized look into both sides of congratulations so you go back to the drawing board and measuring reassess and you're starting to see a pattern inside that pattern completely agree with that you know how well did you build rapport and trust with that person if you're not comfortable handling objections here's a tip always an collaboration in business time is the only non renewable resource in life so with this podcast the outcome is design Martin to recognize in identify opportunities where you can grow your business to new heights so you do something you haven't done before you research agree to disagree sometimes but you're going to address the situation and then we talked to you on a previous episode deal with that and then try this on these episodes Chris will break down proven strategies that his companies use to respectably enroll prospective students into the correct opportunities for you to learn more how to serve your clients better a lot of sales people are not really truly grasping the idea what it's coming through on the other end the phone of information on material from companies just trying to sell products but not many giving you the right information on how to build companies from solid marketing driving you to take action sometimes on products you never thought people would buy while that's just what makes this podcast standout from the we discuss a little bit further in detail dive into that first call with a different approach is on sale strategies as we dove a little deeper and expose a lot of potential commits an concerns that you're bringing to them how does that make you feel how does that make you feel about the product does it feel like your weight the bias seller relationships that I'm sure anyone tuning in will receive massive value from to implement instantly there are huge quantities think about something for a second say for instance you've been in business for over a year and he'd done pretty well for yourself you've got over that one million dollar mark on this if you're trying to make the sale and you're getting objections I mean do we ever had all of those off already Ri- so when you get to the point of closing the sale a to move on positivity and you always want to agree but you're not going to agree to their viewpoint you're going to greet to disagree at certain points means that you've done everything that you possibly can and everything with that person that you need to to get them to a level of buying confidence that they're just ready to go right so I would using your time adoptions are a direct reflection of how well you do your job as a salesperson wes would you agree to that I mean what's your input so important for a buyer to hear you say that I can't tell you how many sales people they think that report -veloping rapport and maintaining a certain level of rapport. You always have to be on their side of being their friend what's the danger zone for that if you if you get sucked the worst place to get sucked into it's like it's the friend zone right I mean it's the point where now you feel obligated to get sucked into their bullshit I vs like I will tell you that if I'm true report with you I can tell you that the way you're thinking is in alignment with what you're trying to do and that can I can I believe it's our job as sales people as industry is a community and it's my job particularly as a sales trainer to educate as many people oh against what you're saying right but I can do it in such a way that you understand and respect why I'm telling you what it is I'm always going to back it by the Y. and so the that was my way of being able to identify how to overcome and develop more confidence of being able to speak with authority does that make more sense yeah it's extremely is I possibly can if you're not comfortable handling objections I'm GonNa give you this is what I used to do when I started out in sales I grabbed tin flash cards getting to that point where if if you're if you're too friendly with that person or you're always agreeing with that person then you're gonNA end up agreeing you know to yourself right out of that sale got a pin and I wrote down ten objections that I usually would get a top ten on the front I would write the objection on the back I would write out my rebuttals really is what's really wrong right isn't what's stopping that person that's just what they're giving you basically 'cause they're town you I don't feel comfortable and I don't really trust you the right targeting that's not usually the case but sometimes maybe it's just not the right fit but in most cases when you have an objection that basically means that you haven't done what you need yet right that's how I see objection right and so of course you know sometimes it's not the right buyer right of course from very minimal amount if boorda for you to to understand everything behind that objection objection because most of the time is as you already know Chris Objection is that what it each objection to where it stems from where does the stem from not just from this person may be you know going through there do in order for that person to not have that objection so you know with that no cart ideas as absolutely brilliant and the one thing I would add onto that as well as breakdown of what they've currently been going on has experienced a number of set things right that has now calls him to have this type of objection or based off of maybe the way they grew up or have their best interest now they're more obligated to put those objections aside because you've already over you've overcome or had them off before they even got Erin start to identify where limiting beliefs come from that's a huge tip because once you start picking these off you can start understanding pattern recognition doc I'm not trying to alienate them with their friends but I will expose what they're doing or what they're not doing either here's my point just to add in what you're saying less in everything you're saying I completely see eye to eye with you understanding what if I don't trust you you're not checking my mailbox exactly people buy from people they what trust or they want to be like similar to maybe it's based off of another encounter they had with another salesperson and now they have their guard up but again it goes back to if that person views authority in and they really truly trust you and they feel it can change the way that they're looking at business that could change the way they're looking at the titular opportunity trust is a big thing for people I'm telling you right now wes is that what they're saying to you is based off of their actions words or go to I talked about in our previous episode about the top five people you spend the most time with and I as far as a new person with think maybe they'll put it back to where they feel like the product is maybe going to give him the best value who they look up to but when you look at that sentence and you're asking someone that's new to sales they would probably say I don't know you tell me what what would they say elite like I will get so granular to where I'm going to teach you the why behind even every word that I say or the tone that I use in the Senate want to become physical I'm not that I'm going to on never been physical listeners I cannot stand companies in major corporations that actually do this labeled them at night was when I label them I label them the Jackson because I want them to visualize that person as the objection that's what's holding them back I think you know the other way of truly tapping into that human element or that the the brain and the psychology behind what's going on is much harder so if you say something to me I have my own mind and my own views but I'm not going to affect them when my views either positive or negative unless station that got you to this point and what how much control did you really have over that phone call so that's those are the things that need to be trained on able to get a connection does that make sense so volume able to gain a connection with a particular person or perspective buyer client whatever they tell you here's your series of objections and when you get them now you go ahead and this is what you say these are the questions that you ask when in reality you just hit trigger it's like a landmine when people talk about product when I'm talking about a I call it makes me WANNA chop people in throat like for people to understand and so when you're in a corporate setting most of the time you hire people and put them in those positions that maybe not necessarily where the best sales people and San Human Brain operates why do people have it backwards to us because they're so focused on selling their product that that's all they teach because one is going to say in any particular scenario that that's unique to that person but what you can teach me is why certain things are said you can put me in a phone and also anything you want me to sell a lot of people say that but what I'm talking about is I'm not going to sell that product what's going to other people's bullshit even on the sales team ultimately it's prioritize your your main goals by prioritize your goals to the you should ask why did you even get this in the first place and so why did you even get to subjection what did you not implement in your sales processor in that conference if I'm not able to connect I'm not able to come through as the authority figure expert because I didn't know anything about the freaking products as service I was selling today us right when they get somebody on board and they go through their bullshit training their training is all about product knowledge has nothing to do with being able to for a second the biggest part for people as they get so sucked into the society and what everyone tells them what they should have in how could I make the customer experience more enjoyable how can I streamlined in how can I get them to maybe give me more referrals we'll get to that later but everything you do is to establish trust or gain and build another layer on would you agree I would as human beings we tend thank you know that I'm that I'm speaking I so once you understand that and then how it makes the buyer feel and where then allows you to transition now you have a much better life why how can you detach yourself what advice would you give the listeners to detaching yourself as a new sales person to not be affected by point to where you understand that you are going to be the reason why you become great other people will help you and influence you along the way but you are the reason why you'll be don't truly have an understanding of what's actually happening happening in that interaction so you can never come and tell me how someone is going to feel by or what best version of yourself and the best salesperson you can be unprioritised that and say okay if I get a certain piece of advice from somebody I'm gonNA break it down there's some of the hardest things to train them because most people don't understand it I struggle with this sometimes with the report level thing that when you find common ground or you're trying to Mir right the right now you understand why everything's happening and it's easier for you to implement but if I come and tell you you know this is the process and you're GonNa get this series of objections and the I wonder what did they stem from how do they make them feel so when I trained sales I don't train to how do you sell the product I trained to how can you true you're trying to angle it a certain way for them to understand your point of view I struggle with that early in my sales career because I'm not a fake I'm not a fraud managers and you know other people who can keep you hold you accountable but ultimately you're the one that has to take ownership over and so understand that you want to be me becoming an authority figure there's only there's really a few main things you want to do on a call you want to become an authority you want to build credibility you want to build trust enjoy buying for me they actually enjoy it because that's how much I love what I do is I focus more my attention on this is how you had these objections off like a lot of sales people and I'm going off on a little bit of a rent here because it's gotTa pisses me off and a lot of sales trainers that what they do a messy okay how does that actually work how does that affect the buyer I if I actually implemented this strategy that this person is telling me about her influencing me on trust people we like or who we want or who we look up to this may sound like a world's biggest no brainer but it's actually quite profound if you stop and think about it the people buy from people they what that's a good question for me it's the appeal by from people who who who they trust who feel like they have their best interests at heart but what they feel comfortable in it's hard for people so as a new salesperson and you're mentioning credit would you say credibility trust Thir introverts one of the major reasons why I would always advise them to go and go to a speaking class 'cause they're starting to remove themselves away from what that you currently possess let's do a little assignment real quick I want everyone to think of someone in your life that you think you trust you feel you trust things that you're mentioning gross it comes with natural ability sometimes sometimes people need to learn that way some the best sales people ever I've ever come in contact with convenor sheltered you're not gonNA have to you're not going to be able to do that effectively but it all starts with you defying some commonalities if I if I say that took us how do I think for me if I put myself in the position of the customer how will I take something like that does it actually does it actually promote and are you gaining connection with that person or do you feel like there's a wall in the middle and you're trying to break through that wall so so it is my confidence in me speaking as an authority figure yeah people are going to buy you right exactly there in knowing combined me I'm not I'm pretty expensive but having that set as your objective and if you're a new salesperson I'm trying to think in a way of trying to train it because there's some there's some of those light them for whatever reason that somebody popped in your head do you trust them no you do not interesting right people like people they connect with where am I going with this was ultimately about how did they make you feel or how do you make them feel so so are you visualize them now think of someone that you're not too sure about and don't say West maybe you just flat out and I want you to visualize the person do you have them on your mind great now tell me this do you trust them of course you do now that we know people buy from people they trust and they trust people they like how do you determine if you'd like someone they will purchase whatever it is because it's never about the money it's never about the purchase at they're making it's how confident are they in the fact that you're actually going to help them was the one in authority and authority so when you're going into those three think about being an authority figure and if you've lived in a box your whole life Being very honest and open being authentic being their true self and the appropriate amount of vulnerability create deep and meaningful do is going to help me or is it going to hurt me build those three things if it helps great implement if it doesn't you stay away from it it's all about being comfortable just add on that connections with human beings I don't give a shit who you are if you're able to demonstrate these four it's going to be really powerful got a couple of episodes ago I saw a few don't view yourself as an authority than what's stopping you from doing that because if you once you fix that now so ask yourself that question is this truly getting those three things right credibility authority and trust so in anything that on a phone call and you would think I'm the biggest extrovert by as a sales call because now I stepped into another route I so now this is who I am and how to gain a connection with anyone you talk to I can give a shit you're walking down the street going into a coffee shop people who demonstrate being humble for someone to connect with you because I don't believe every person in this world is a great person I don't believe every person has world is a bad person I'm great and so that you have to find you have to take ownership of everything that you do and and in every interaction you have to take ownership over that yet you can had sales again make sure you write this down being humble have being authentic do you check in with yourself on a daily basis to make sure that you're being your true self when you step into that role for that day you can truly become somebody else you could you could be a certain way as a normal human being right so for me I'm naturally a little bit more are you being open and honest about your true feelings and emotions that's the big connection there in are you able to be vulnerable myself west I'm not vulnerable person I struggle with this me being with my wife has taught me to learn how to that now it's a little bit more natural for you to be able to do that over the phone or in your sales interaction right there's there's a main characteristics of connection the first part I so yet to visualize yourself as being capable of becoming an authority I so annette goes back to limiting beliefs that we talked about you're not gonNA buy yes they might they might pay for the experience that they have with me because most of my buyers for your first call and if all the sales people are listening into this and I don't give a shit if you're in sales are not if you're in business in maybe just in your personal life lesson or they're there for a reason and if you start viewing things that simple it's important but how to connect those are the four main characteristics and I'll say of something happening it's the fear of loss having something I've already achieved yet you see it all the time people that do you know as in of course all of the things I do natural who I am as a person's all reflection on my phone call right but now another person right because now I am the authority things there sometimes extraordinary and they achieve all these accomplishments a say for instance make a bunch of money and money's just a tool we'll get to that later if okay and and those are the three main things that you want to do on a call because once you do that then people know are bought into and once people are bought into you now served grandma I'm a lot more reserved of a person by I don't you know yes I talked to people I converse with people but naturally more reserved and but I'll be on the I'll be Yvonne arrival but to be able to create deep and meaningful connection you need all four would you agree I would I would tell struggle at the same thing in how they feel making example here because I want you I want to demonstrate how the start viewing things differently as a sales person and all that bullshit that we discussed the other day the that's the piece you need to be able to have a quality interaction that this is a true quality interaction happens not about understanding productivity and maximize potential in any industry. Let's take a moment have you ever wondered about the psychology behind the persuasive how will your friends score you on these four characteristics think about that how would your buyers score you away in order to supplement exactly the direction that you're having to be able to extract the information and the things that you need and make the buyer feel the way they need feel and also edifying yourself and building that credibility within your you know for yourself on that interaction so that this is this is by far the most important piece right here before we ever get as well I think it's the fear of loss for me I've mentioned before the one of my biggest catalyst is fear in that fear comes from pain is that fee it didn't have the knowledge to back it up in the knowledge that I gained over the years to back it up comes from hard work and it comes from making sacrifices the implement some of these strategies to see the same or similar results why do people complicate things usually it's a lack of understanding that's where knowledge comes in so into any kind of questions or the process or anything along those lines and we gave them a tease either day you know we started going into some questions and in this kind of hard that's pretty powerful if you think about it that way so why are you why do I have the viewpoint why am I bringing this up talking about the buyer now not going into opening the questions knowing the questions are all those are important but if you don't get this piece then knows all of those things are not powerful at all they're not you're not gonna be able to know how to use them the right ought to be honest with the US when we do it we do we love what we do and I'm sure that people can see to simplicity in some of the questions are asking but do you believe truly we want everyone to actually think about this do you believe that I was be able to say that confidently and being true to myself if I understand things that do it my way talking about the flash cards earlier sitting on my desk and flipping him over I still remember those tin get those later but I don't have to deal with them now because people don't ask lost it all they would give a shit it'd be like yeah whatever but it's the status it's the way they feel in their mind do you see the connection into that goes back to where they view themselves it comes from me dedicating enough time as I need you notice I didn't say dedicate a certain amount of time I need certain amount of time to be able to there's bad times and good times for each so what I'm trying to say is you're gonNA catch people on the right time in your life these either they're therefore you're all the resistance because I'm giving so much knowledge in value and I'm able to communicate that and try to educate them on how they can gene or say objections they don't bring it up because I handle things way out in front it's how I make them feel and remove you have to you have to develop the NFL add onto that too with introverts as well and that is that when you're on the phone sales or doesn't matter whatever your role is thousands of hours of work and effort an intentional effort put in you know to become great at what you do and you have to have that level of commitment you educating yourself so much that's the critical piece and the keyword there is the need to write how much you need to because this is you know thousands the other three if you have the right knowledge and I'll use an example industry knowledge product knowledge customer knowledge but here's a key not fucking manner none of those matter you know what matters the ability and capability hi someone's ability to be able to overcome or communicate that what they're passionate about I haven't had love you truly are well let's teach them Hell Celli all right let's do it if you want to connect with your buyers be yourself would you will respect me and you're going to respect me based off the value that I'm bringing and it's kind of hard to deny I used to tell west probably go nuts right now if I say this but I'm GonNa say it you don't have to buy for me you don't have to do anything same shit the same methods having them view you as an authority are experts completely different in this will give you credibility that leads to respect just one and that's why I always use a lot of visualization and I still do today I use a lot of visualization because I need to try to visualize what's happening in the I and credibility and you have to control every part of that process I so how they feel every part of the process and how they view you in order to be trusted as a professional you need to demonstrate consistently through your knowledge skill incapability those interaction and that's how I when I got really good at heading off objections is because I would envision that entire process and what that person is going to say to me college level words in order for me to be able to build authority I the way that I come across the way that I sound and how confident I am and by your tell me that I wasn't passionate hasn't happened we get some extremely passionate about what I do I love what I do if I this what I love about it entrepreneurship I can do this until the day I die if granted I'm not going to be ninety years old trying to speak into a microphone is not gonNA happen it's different levels of success in my opinion how my language it's always going back to helping the person solve whatever that problem need want desire is that they have I so you have to break it down I focusing on being yourself this leads to personal trust we mentioned before will Westmin- before talking about the understand what the buyer is going through if you got that down fucking good night insert freaking product because if you're especially if I'm viewing you as a a friend getting into that fringe zone no we're not doing a dating podcast but having them view echo work though yeah I could work and then from there heading also objections in the language that I'm using and how mu how I'm saying it to that person I n and that's where you know I came up with every part process with every single word that you say it sounds like a lot and that's because it is the words that you say can be very simple right I don't have to use the with the fact that there's those are the you need three things on a phone call in order to to be able to have accessible phone call they see you as an authority trust learn from West or you learn from myself in the methods that I developed over the years I can teach you to sell anything about what you're selling is how in in at a granular level that you understand every little piece of it in you got `self are dedicated to that and once you start doing it you're gonNA fall no reason that's what I have companies for if I'm going to work with someone that I want to work with and I feel that I can have a level of expertise that can help them you're presenting it in when is the right time to present it exactly there's a lot of times that I get there's a lot of times I get people on the phone west and I'm like how to have them in a positive way right absolutely but if I'm not gonNA phone with someone that's broken and I'm not talking about financially I I don't you get a call book dame with me that's a whole that's a whole level I don't even go there like my team is skilled enough to be able to get the right people in front of me I'm going to talk to people China fixed broke its that's difficult you're going to have to step your game up come up to my love coming up the my love I'm not talking about my level of financially or whatever those types of level I'm talking about inside of my mindset you know what I mean like inside of my mind where I'm trying to view things I'm not going it's kind of I can't remember who said this I but it's impossible to win an argument with a stupid person who right well exactly exactly and that goes exactly into what is that tires intention and how receptive are they at because if I if I go into a sales interaction I'm going to I'm going to tell the client over I don't need any of that what I do need is the fact that you are willing to be receptive and you are cultural and you're someone who's actually serious about getting to whatever it was I ever have and that is that during the time of this call I'm going to let you know exactly what you can expect from me and what I expect from you and one of those expectations is going to be the I don't need you to know everything I don't need you to be the most talented person mindset I'm usually be able to identify this within the first forty five to maybe and maybe one minute forty five seconds to a minute based off of the decisions and choices that I make if you don't know how to transition yourself from that personal trust and going into professional here to judge anyone I'm not going to judge you I'm just going to process you inside of my own mind where you go into buying timeframe and is it worth my while to being able to spend the time my time and you know how I've used my time less than how I I value it how I spend my time the pieces while as so what type of relationship do you have with your client or even the initial phone call that you have do sound desperate do sound like you are you are you know there's someone I should be speaking to and I'm not trying to sound like it's that easy to break into I'm just going to be able to ask certain level all is that you're looking for that I so I gain that commitment from them and I said it as an expectation or I will not work with you right so that's the authority here we like we are working on this we are here to help you and not I I because maybe in their mind an I can't help me but an entire team Ken you and my expectation is that you're willing to be helped because if you're not the forget it I can't help you goodbye so that's the attitude just to have an it goes back to your especially now being an entrepreneur in me owning different types of businesses and me investing in two other companies I don't have the time I'm trying to create more time working so hard to get this sale or you are truly you know you're not the one in control there the one in control right or do you sound like an authority someone coming in and saying I am here to help you actions in a sequence for you to be able to respond in a way that you respond sometimes it's not what you say is how you say things and how you respond and I'm sorry tire team on board and not just myself just dependent on my opinion or or my judgment I so again it's going back to you truly need to understand well exactly I'm transitioning from personal trust the professional trust that that's where the authority comes in if you don't have that that transition won't happen how easily it is cost sharing your knowledge and value show evidence that your company knows what the fuck doing keep it simply leverage them first and then you're we talked about this in the last episode so when you start that phone call what is your standard of going into that phone call right are they going to control you today are you gonNa Control that conversation so you have to start from authority right from the start and then go into building that trust by so who what are your expectations what are your standard is the most important thing to me is a non renewable resource and life only I can't get that back to set some expectations around what I'm looking for from you and from the truly be able to help you as well as what you can expect from me can how you start that phone call that I five seconds of that phone call is what's going to dictate how the rest of it's GonNa go right unless you're good enough to bounce back but when you for me to understand a lot more about you in order for me to able to truly help you moving forward and then from there what I'd like to do as well as I'd like John John What i WanNa do today the agenda for today is going to be that one I want to understand a lot more about U. K. it's very very important to develop more in a base off of the experiences they are buyers have with you you're able to get testimonials and gain testimonials and gained experience in that way you're already figure you mentioned dating earlier today it's very similar however some people would say the first call is like dating able to lead with that now this comes with experience takes time a lot of a lot of power we there's a lot of power and we've versus and who the person on the other side of that line is all who the person in front of you is and truly what they're looking for a yet to step into that realm just on the person right for you to make that shift as truly as easy as really as easy as making a decision or a choice right and so it comes back to setting the expectation so you have to gauge that as well that's a whole `nother part of understanding your buyer you know as that as that person looking you know will they feel more comfortable if they feel like they have it in and we're in alignment with what you're trying to accomplish how does that sound amazing so and now now I'm going to transition now I'm going to transition but I've already set the expectation UNCALL- and setting the expectation in creating enough repore develop enough reported lay down a solid foundation going into being it's not like dating I don't go on dates with people I don't know anything about you that call is everything to do with do you have any type of Shen right so I've already set the expectation that I am the authority that's all I did there that was the purpose of that entire thing that I'm going to control this conversation and I'm the authority I know exactly what the fuck communicate with your team members about their story on what they're trying to do in their journey right exactly and so and that you mentioned on something that's actually very there's very very important and moving forward with I'd like to go ahead and get a plan together for us for our next call and how we're going to move forward to weaken make sure that we're on the right track it's not that difficult however I'm won't make it to five minutes on a phone call I feel that you're not the type of student I'm looking forward type Byrom looking for it doesn't make any sense to me what about at that was the whole purpose purpose of that beginning the beginning of that phone call I've heard a lot of different explanations views on the open Kline move over to the next professional and at turnovers important that's a whole other topic but if you don't have professional trust it's very difficult so if your client doesn't matter how big you are doesn't matter how knowledgeably are experienced you are they're still going to be some clients out there that Argon the knee professional trust without personal trust lengthen sale cycles and inserts more competition and generally decreases customer loyalty into in that as you never WanNa make you never want the buyer to feel like there's truly an endpoint right you wanna make them feel good when you close the sale any for them to be able to have that transfer you need to transfer everything you learned in discovered about that potential buyer and having potential to serve my needs as a seller basically do you have a need and want for my help and my services stop overcomplicating shit man in that meeting right so that way when they when a customer or buyer comes to that meeting they're prepared right they will have this another way of me qualifying a student pretty figure you're there to give a recommendation to move on that communication once you go through that buying cycle or sales cycle they move onto the next appointed person inside that comp never wanna feel like it's just going to end so that's that's actually a huge what about then what about now what about this what about that you're going to get a lot of these questions right but if it's your and care about you right the best thing you can do for yourself as a seller as understand that the person doesn't truly care about you and yeah you can build a relationship where they care about your well being but ultimately array of your own that's going to help them understand something further that's another story but that's a whole nother thing but you know if if you're doing that constantly or you're only talking about yourself that's not GonNa get you you're right and so you have to but that goes back to why you need to set the expectation for that relationship and even every single one of those calls before today and I'm going to get on the phone I'm going to say hey john this is West here how you doing today rate by so and then I'm GonNa come in and say you know and and I'm so happy to hear that if they buy it all I've seen in my own sales team before we're able to train them on the viewpoints of listen urine you see a lot of sellers get to that personal relationship they can't break into that professional trust just because they want to talk about themselves V. Scene Sellers it's not you know hey did you hear about what sandy did last night in the at the party right like it's not GonNa go into that love we'll have these conversations and so hi experience with another perspective buyer or it could be a CO worker could be never my personal life because it about themselves so much that they get in the way their own buying timeframe oh yeah it's it's pretty annoying actually it's it's one of those things to where the person ought to paint that picture like I don't move onto the next appropriate meeting ev- even if I established that we should have another meeting I'm going to paint the picture and what's going to happen before
Badass Answers - How Do You Find Your Vision And Purpose?
"How do you find your vision and purpose especially if you're struggling to connect with it? That's this week on the bad ass. Agile podcast Welcome to the bad ass. Agile podcast. I'm your host. Chris Chris Williams. Hey everybody welcome come back. Thank you as always for listening to the show and most importantly for sending in your most important coaching questions. The love answering these. I have a great win this week about finding ending your purpose in setting goals before we dig into it. Let's take a moment to remember why we're here to create an elite tribe of leaders who truly serve their clients and communities. He's by doing what matters. And what works relentlessly chasing value in. Excellence like a bad ass there so many resources about what you need to do to be agile. But we're focused on who you need to become in order to lead teams so let's hammered down those fundamentals to create a unique and powerful force in this industry. If this helps you tell your friends. Don't forget you can also submit your coaching or leadership questions. By reaching out at contact at Badass albacom are. This week's question comes from James. Let me read it to you. I've had a lot of people recently. Asking me telling me to set long term goals goals goals that are aligned to my dreams and passions. That will give me a higher purpose which I've reflected on a lot recently but but I don't know how I can figure this out James. It's a great question and if you've been a listener for any length of time two things first of all the answers Sir within the Away as we know the bad ass agile way encourages each of us and challenges us to get visionary then to get focused just then to get greedy to get humble inflexible but notice it all starts with getting visionary which leads me to part two which is the most important thing you can do as a leader and as an agile practitioner is to set up your picture of how the world looks when you're done with it. Now that can take many forms as a product owner honor. It could be your vision for how your product or service changes the world. What value does it add as a team or an individual performer? On that team. You can set a vision for will kind of team or teammate. You WanNa be. What will you as a group achieve? What do you stand for? What will you do better than anybody else? What is the unique value that you add to the world and all cases if you think about it setting up a vision really is connecting with that value that unique value that you intend to bring into the world? How will it be better because you lived in it? Well I've done a number of episodes on maybe how to approach defining your vision and I know it's not easy for a lot of people they've never had a chance is to really contemplate it or they haven't grown up in a culture that encouraged it and let's face it in the modern educational and work environment. The focus has been on getting illiterate in MM. You know getting a good with numbers and making sure you're prepared for the workforce they don't really spend a whole lot of time figuring out who you are and why you're so important I think sometimes there's a lot of pressure around the question to because we tend to think of creating your vision a somewhat of a mystic or spiritual question and it really doesn't have to be. Here's the way. Look at it if you ever watch an aunt or be doing what they do. They didn't have to get educated on it. Didn't have to spend a whole lot of time contemplating their purpose. They just SORTA wake up and and they've been programmed to do what is necessary to do for their survival so well it's inaccurate to say that each of us has something that we uniquely were we're born to do there is something our DNA that we were probably meant to do. And where does that mean. Come from a really could be partly your biological article makeup. It could be your early experiences. And it really boils down to your preferences and your skills and gifts to a certain degree so maybe the easiest easiest way to think about. Your vision is to work backwards from questions like this. What are some of the things that make you really happy? Can you remember a time or especially in activity activity in your life where you completely joyous you were totally immersed in the activity the world around you seem to go away and you lost all sense of time. Is there something if you were to really analyze carefully that you seem to gravitate towards and by that I mean you'll do this thing no matter how inconvenient it seems no matter. How many other pressing priorities? You think you have standing in the way no matter how many other people warn you or tell you that you probably shouldn't do it or don't need to do. Would you have to do it anyway. If you think carefully about those things and other great question I always uses. What would you do if you didn't have to worry about money? And even if your the answer is will I just go to the Casino and gamble all day. You know what there's something in that so ask all of those questions of yourself and find some activity or some class of activity will emerge. It's usually the case for human beings that they really enjoy for example adventure that means new and exciting and and foreign environments. That could be travel. That could be seeking new challenges or new levels of ability for other people it may be being a helper or healer. Those are people who really enjoyed being on the scene. Sometimes when the worst of the stuff hits the fan when nobody else can solve the problem they kinda like jumping in being the hero. Other people really enjoy being teachers. Those who transmit specific knowledge to people who don't yet have it some people really like being creators. Those are the people who invent things often artistic things but not limited to fit could be inventions or innovations or improvements on innovations in that same vein. Some people are solvers. They take the existing problems of society or nature or in a personal relationships and are always trying to concoct doc new ways to get around them were eliminate them. Technical people often fall into that category part creative but also these are people who are looking for for solutions to making things faster or better or different some people are communicators or marketers cheerleaders people who take work that other people are are doing and help promote or lifted up so that it's accessible to more of the world or a larger audience. Some people are healers. Those are the people who WanNa take individuals in their worst moments whether they be human or otherwise and bring relief solace or comfort. Some people are protectors now as. Here's some of these statements. You may find elements of yourself in each of them. Were in many of them so I highly encourage you to inspect James. The different ways that she gravitate towards activities things that you do even if you're not being paid the things that you do even when you weren't asked to do them but these things bring you real edification gratification vacation comfort a sense of accomplishment somewhere deep down you probably know and one way got checked. That is to ask yourself the question. From the time time I was a little kid up until the current day. I have always known that I'm a bit of a blank because James One thing I know for sure is is that an aunt is always an aunt it never becomes a bird and so it is with people so if you're a healer by nature if you're a teacher by nature it's both a combination as as I mentioned before if your DNA but also your evolving experiences so whatever it is you're meant to be you've probably been doing it and experiencing it for at least a little while now so looking back to your past looking for common threads can be a really powerful way to uncover your true essence. There are tons of books and probably videos and you know online courses or academies that you can use to help you find your purpose. It's it's is not an uncommon question at all good for you for even bothering to ask because most people don't have the courage to figure out who they are what they stand for. And what the the difference that they intend to make in the world is but as I've said in so many previous episodes not knowing your vision in your purpose your reason for being in this world old is a huge blocker to improve as a leader to improving your influence to becoming more powerful because you know what without that vision. There's no glue that connects all of your life's work together. There's no single unifying thread that motivates you when times get really really tough. There's there's no moral compass to help gauge your decisions and I'll go one further and say unless you know your service meaning what is it that your your purpose does to add value to the world. Who Do you serve? How do you serve them? And why it is really hard to recruit people to help help you and your cause if you think your vision your purpose is to become CEO. By the time you're forty. It's really tough to find people who WANNA jump behind that cause and leap into the fire fire with you on the other hand. If you believe in making the world a better place for children for people with disabilities for people who are struggling to find work for people who are struggling to understand technical skills when your purpose serves others. Who Need you? Guess what. It's pretty easy to find supporters orders and people who want to be with you on your journey to servicing 'cause now let's go back to your statement about goals for a second once again goals can be simply defined as setting a flag point at somewhere or someplace or some time in the future and saying I want to go there. But where here is there once again. Let's go back to the stuff that you've learned from the bad ass principles you need both a vision and a sense of service because without those two things your goals are just a whole bunch of targets and ambitions that you set up in sometimes knocked down. They're not unified by any single principle or any cohesive zip destination. You're just doing stuff and remember number two. If that goal has no sense of service then you're not gonNA have a lot of support in the achievement of those goals when when things get really tough. So here's what I would do spend some time reflecting and contemplating on what your purpose might be then figure out who that serves how it serves awesome and why and to do that. Just brainstorm along the lines that I previously discussed. Write down everything that comes into your head and start eliminating the things that are less important and the things that are more important. More consistent more durable over time will suddenly become apparent to you. Can if you can't settle on the one thing don't worry about it. Have three things for a little while live with them for a bed and over time it will become apparent which ones among those you absolutely absolutely could never live without so I love being a healer. I love being creative. And I love being a solver but at the end of the day the big one is healer. What you'll find is you brainstorm brainstorm is that I think for all of us? There's a little bit of truth in each of those but if you focus on the one that is most important it unlocks the other ones for you so if you decide that you're a healer all of a sudden you have the freedom to become more creative in service of healing and helping others likewise you you become an efficient communicator towards that. Cause you'll find that all of those things tend to roll up to your one big one once you settled on one two three brainstormed ideas for your purpose in your service. Now Start Setting small goals that are aligned to the achievement of that purpose. So so you've decided you wanna be a healer and the people that you want to heal our new immigrants to the country who were having a hard time finding a sense of community and finding meaningful work. Great Wood the three things that you can do today that move closer towards that goal one might be well create an instagram account with inspirational messages and pictures. That help inspire spire and give hope to people who are suffering with those kinds of conditions in those kinds of fears number two. I'll take out an ad in my my local newspaper advertising retiring an event that I intend to run at the local town hall number three. I'll speak to the people at the town hall about booking a resource room record. Give a presentation to ten to twenty only five people and if that doesn't work try the local library. Those are just three shots in the dark that I made up in five seconds I have no idea if any of those will work but but as far as goals go those are wicked. Agile goals. They'd catch you. Doing something and one of two things will happen. Either they will work and those actions move view closer towards your goals and fulfilling purpose or they won't they'll fail and as I always say here on bad ass agile. Either you win or you learn so James Good luck in your journey. It's an important question that you're undertaking and I applaud you for it if you have any more questions. Don't hesitate to reach out and friends. Thank you for listening. I hope this question answer is helped you to you can reach out at bad ass. Agile dot com or find me on twitter at bats underscore. Agile see you

158: Personal Branding = The Key to Massive Results - Dale Dupree
"You're listening to the daily sales. Tips podcast. I'm your host Scott Ingram today. I've got a clip for you. From my latest sales. Success stories podcast interview with Dale do pre Dale his previously been on this show when he shared his five part reason theory with us. But we went deep in this conversation. Here's a taste. I'm also really curious about the origin story around the copier warrior. Like where did that come about? And how big of an impacted sort of that personal branding that you wrapped yourself in have any results while answer, the second part of that question. I and it was the key to my massive results. I give all credit to the copier warrior, but it came around when I kind of, like I was talking about earlier in this podcast, where I'd walk in somewhere, and I had to differentiate myself from dozens of other sales people, so I started to realize that we all. Wore a suit we all were a tie. We all had a white shirt on. I mean, how do you tell us apart? And how do we be more authentic in five seconds? Ten seconds of first meeting at prospect. And so, for me, it was about this concept of, I touch pieces and interrupt marketing concepts where when I walked in, I wanted someone to know I was the copier warrior without me saying, hi, my name's Dale. I'm the copier warrior. You know, that, that kind of translation doesn't necessarily come across affectively when you're cold calling someone for the first time think of even think of dialing on somebody for the first time because I use the phones a lot in the beginning of my career too. So I knew that I had to get something in someone's hands or let them see my personal brand to some extent, as I was introducing myself, and that, that would help me to leverage, what it was. I was trying to accomplish from the relationship standpoint, because when people saw the brand, I'll tell you right now that it was like a transformation with within the moment of that. Iraq that you were having with them that bled toward much more meaningful and impactful relationships in my walk. So the real way, the copier warrior was actually born though, was that it was at my dinner table in my, my family's dining room, where we were talking about what it was that we did for a living, my father and mother happened to be in here as well too. And, and some of my siblings and my mom just kind of chimed in and said, well, you're you the two of you are warriors. And then she kind of just said, copier warriors. It was this moment of brilliance Rydin. I mean, hell I don't even know if my mom remembers that conversation, but it impacted me. So hard core of the following day, I called up one of my branding friends Travis Webster shout out to him. It's one of the best creative minds on this earth, and heaven, I molded, what we turned into the copier warrior it started with imagery, with an online presence, so bind Dale to pre dot com, copier warrior dot com. Kind of enlightening my Lincoln page a little bit creating interrupts inside of all the visuals that you saw. And in my first campaign was actually eight four eight and a half by eleven cutouts? They were eight half by eleven full bleed very thick paperweight, real nice and glossy just like captured your attention. When I walked in, and I handed that to you, as if it was my business card, and it was wild ride on the front, the four four-day for various reasons, but the one that people have probably seen the most because I. I push it out to my socials few times a me pulling a sword from golden copier in the middle of the woods up in the top corner. It says every morning he wakes up believing. This is his job. If you enjoyed those three and a half minutes, there's another eighty plus minutes, waiting for you, in the full interview, over on the sales success stories podcast, and that's just part one I'm not through with Dale yet. And if you have questions for Dale based on this first interview sent me a note before July third, and I'll see if I can work them into part two of our conversation as always links to everything or just a click away at daily sales dot tips forward slash one fifty eight thanks for listening and be sure to come back tomorrow for another great sales tip from Jeff Jorg.
