The “Great Resignation” or “Great Migration” has incited a movement by employees to find roles where they feel valued and appreciated. But not everyone wants to be recognized or shown appreciation in the same way. In this episode, David sits down with Dr. Paul White, author of “The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace”, to talk about how to show appreciation for your staff in ways that are meaningful to them.

Science tells us that we're exposed to somewhere between 2 and 11 million bits of information per second, but we can only consciously process 50 to 60 of those bits. To simplify things, the unconscious mind creates shortcuts to size up information and reach conclusions efficiently. That strategy works great for lots of things. When you arrive at a traffic light, you don't have to think about what the red light means, and you don't feel confused about what to do when it turns green. Thanks to symbols and mental shortcuts, you can sail through many daily situations — no problem. Those mental shortcuts can serve us well — most of the time. When it comes to relationships, though, those mental shortcuts can be a problem. It's easy for us to jump to conclusions based on our perceptions. We come to conclusions based on what we think we perceive in others' body language, behaviors, and tone. Then we act on those often erroneous conclusions, causing us to pull back, assume things we shouldn't, make bad decisions, or even alienate others. As much as we may like to think otherwise, we're not mind readers. Not only that, everything that we do perceive is first filtered and then always distorted by our own experiences, beliefs, values, and perspectives. Here's how we can make those filters less likely to limit us: Recognize that you have biases, that you can never know the whole story. There's nothing personal about this. It's simply a reality based on how the mind works. Become more self-aware by recognizing your own beliefs, values, and biases. And, become aware of how you could do better. Ask more questions. Instead of assuming, get curious. Ask for clarification. Ask for more details. Ask why. This process will benefit all of your relationships — whether personal or for business. It will increase understanding and broaden your perspective, paving the way for better connections. Thanks for listening!

Nothing you do will be easy at first, but that's not a bad thing! Entrepreneur and Fractional CMO, Armen Mardirousi, joins host Casey Stanton to discuss the importance of setting clearly defined goals. Listen to learn about why and how to break them up into smaller pieces. Armen also shares his experience on how to face many of the problems that Fractional CMOs confront every day. Takeaways: The importance of being resilient cannot be understated, especially when it comes to business. The first year of just about anything is difficult. Embrace the grind and grow from it! Make sure you know exactly what you want to do before you start doing it. If you don't know the destination, how will you know when you get there? Determine what you want to do and then reverse engineer a way to do that and break it into doable pieces. It is a fact of life that there are some things that you just can't prepare for. When things like this happen, it's imperative to push past them. Recognize any mistakes made and learn from them, but don't waste time and energy on things in the past. Everyone will try to give you advice about pretty much everything. It's important to listen to everyone and be respectful, but ask yourself, “Are they where I want to be in relation to the topic they are talking about?” Unfortunately, a lot of people have had bad experiences with marketing agencies, consultants, etc. As a Fractional CMO, it's on you to overcome a prospect's opinion of marketers by understanding what they've dealt with and communicating your plan. A “blueprint” that you can adapt to each client you work with is a great way to clearly explain what you're going to do and how you're going to do it. You should say to the client, “I'm here to help, and here's how I'm going to help.” An amazing benefit of being a Fractional CMO is that you can choose to work with clients that help people in ways that you can see. You can select clients who are helping others which can make the work very fulfilling!

Sermon Overview Scripture Passage: Proverbs 19:11-12 It's been said that unjustified anger is like an acid that brings harm to anything it is poured on, including the very container it inhabits. If we can't control our temper, we risk wrecking our lives and destroying our testimonies. Proverbs 19:11 reveals God's answer to anger. “The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger, and his glory is to overlook a transgression.” Scripture says sudden anger is to be controlled. When we feel it coming, we must confess it to God and keep it contained until we have a chance to consider it. Sinful anger is to be condemned; it is not a weakness, it is wickedness. It is anger without a cause rooted within us. It is centered on a person rather than on an offense. It refuses to forgive and let go. Stubborn anger is to be conquered. Bitterness and wrath take over when we let the sun go down on our anger. We allow the devil access in our lives when we let anger rule over us. We must recognize and repent of our anger and refuse the devil's schemes to use our emotions against us. If we don't control, condemn, and conquer anger, it will control, condemn, and conquer us. But there's a sanctified anger we are instructed to channel. It is not destructive to the soul, and it does not result in sin. We see it in Jesus in Mark 3, when He cleared the temple of malicious Pharisees and self-seeking merchants who were taking advantage of the poor. It is not only possible to possess righteous anger, but it is also expected. In fact, injustice ought to stir us and move us to act. Never once did Jesus retaliate when he was personally attacked and abused, even when He was crucified. Yet, Jesus was moved with righteous anger to act when He saw other people being attacked and abused. Adrian Rogers said, “Sometimes anger is love's clearest expression, but we need to be careful with it.” If we want to follow the example of Jesus, we are instructed to get angry at the right time, for the right reason, against the right thing, in the right way. Apply it to your life Is there a sudden, sinful, stubborn anger in your life that is controlling you? Recognize it, repent of it and rebuke the enemy, so that you may live righteously and protect your testimony.
How do we get ourselves to stop being so uppity before God? How do we make ourselves realize our own spiritual poverty that we might inherit the kingdom in all its power and glory? The answer, of course, is that we cannot. Before you can receive spiritual fullness, you have to realize that you need it.
Are you working words a goal, and things are starting to get tough? Our awareness we are at a stepping stone pace of moving towards our goal. We know distracting thoughts and emotions will pull us away from our focus. Recognize that you have positivity inside of you that is glowing. I will guide you […] The post Reflections on Gifts and Gratitude Awareness appeared first on WebTalkRadio.net.

People today want to be spiritual. They want to get in touch with a higher power, they believe in transcendence, they want connection with something out there. But Jesus says we must realize we are not spiritual at all.
Stress and Worry are debilitating factors on your path to productivity. Yet, when controlled, they can accelerate your success.

Yet, you may only partially manage their impact. Learn to live with them but turn stress and worry to be enabling factors on your journey to success. How? Tune in to find out!
It's a problem as old as roleplaying: You have a few players who are engaged, paying attention and driving the story, and other players who may be shy, or not interested in what's going on today. The result is that half your table may not be involved in what's going on. A few weeks ago, DM Tony posted his article with 6 Tips to Get Everyone at the Game Table More Involved. That's the tip of the iceberg for this essential DMing topic. On the show today, Thorin, Tony and Dave will dig into what causes players to disengage, how to bring their attention back to the table, and the tricks they use to keep everyone involved in the game. 2:00 Why do players check out at the table (or your online gaming platform) in the first place? 6:00 Hook ‘em right off the bat: Why DM Dave starts the game by asking each PC “what's your character doing?” 10:00 Using initiative to make sure everyone gets a chance to participate even outside of combat 14:00 Don't be afraid to call on players who haven't spoken up to tell you what they're doing 17:00 Call on everyone in every scene: Don't assume shy/wallflower players don't want to be more involved — they may not be seeing the opportunity, and that's on the DM to facilitate 20:00 Recognize different types of role players: Non-actor role players may not want to engage as much in speaking in-character, but often they do want to come up with creative ideas and actions 23:00 The lesson of Tropic Thunder: D&D is a game of individuals, make sure each player is enjoying the game and getting to do what they want their character to do 27:00 Tactical engagement: Can you run a big heist caper in your D&D game? Who leads? 36:00 Tactics of engagement: Skill challenges and other tools we use to get everyone in the party involved at the same time 42:00 Using character backstories to keep players engaged (and why DM Thorin is a little cautious about them) 52:00 How DM Tony teased a PC's flaw to get the other players interested in that character 59:00 Tempting the party into doing more exploration and discovery 64:00 Final thoughts Support this podcast

Finding balance, support, and boundaries with your partner can be difficult, especially when you're spending near-constant time together. I'm joined by my husband, Dr. Mark Novitsky, to talk about re-evaluating our relationship. Setting goals and boundaries, making time and effort, and supporting each other is essential for a healthy, thriving, happy relationship. Re-Evaluate your Relationship By: Scheduling regular check-ins for all the different hats you wear Supporting your partner when they need it Set and stick to realistic boundaries, even when it's hard Recognize the effort your partner makes About Mark Novitsky, MD Dr. Mark Novitsky is a Board Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist and Board Certified Adult Psychiatrist. Dr. Mark believes that effective work with children involves working closely with parents, schools, and other medical/mental health providers - to achieve a joint goal of optimizing a child's well-being. His extensive clinical experience includes, but is not limited to: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Mood Disorders Depressive disorder Bipolar disorder Anxiety Disorders and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Childhood trauma/Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder Autism Spectrum Disorder Substance Use Disorders Dr. Mark is an adjunct faculty for Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University's Department of Psychiatry. He was previously the Corporate Medical Director for one of Philadelphia's largest non-profit Child Mental Health Organizations. He is a graduate of The Beck Initiative, a joint collaboration between The Aaron T. Beck Center at The University of Pennsylvania and CBH/DBHIDS, for Cognitive Therapy and Research. For the last several years, he has had the privilege of working at Washington DC's premier psychiatry office, Potomac Psychiatry, as a child and adolescent psychiatrist, adult psychiatrist, and a forensic expert witness providing court testimony in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia region. Potomac Psychiatry has been featured as the Faces of Washington, in The Washingtonian Magazine. Dr. Mark grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs, received his undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University, and attended both medical school and psychiatry residency at Temple University School of Medicine (now Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University). He served as Chief Resident in his third year of residency at Temple. He completed Child and Adolescent fellowship at Thomas Jefferson University, where he served as Chief Fellow. During his fellowship, Dr. Mark was awarded a research grant. He has several publications in peer-reviewed journals and has presented his research at the annual meetings of both the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP). In 2013, his Adherence in Pediatric Psychopharmacology-A Multi-dimensional Perspective and Approach was a docent selection of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Dr. Mark has taught hundreds of medical students and residents, and most recently was the lead Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist in a non-profit public outreach campaign to Philadelphia schools through Michael's Giving HAND (Micahel P. Donatucci Foundation, Inc ), teaching school administration, teachers, counselors, and parents about how to identify and address Depression, Anxiety, Substance abuse, and Bullying. When he's not working, Dr. Mark enjoys spending time with his family, walking around Longwood Gardens, checking out live music, and being outdoors with his Labradoodle. The Importance of Boundaries and Communication When the pandemic hit, Dr. Mark and I knew we had to sit down and re-evaluate our relationship and the hats we wore. Living and working in the same house proved to be more challenging than we'd initially expected. We both found ourselves pushing boundaries. It's still a work-in-progress, but Mark and I opened the conversations that needed to happen so we could get our relationship and happiness back. We knew we needed to establish our goals in our relationship and as parents, but first, we needed to figure out our individual goals. By setting our individual goals, we were able to fit them into our shared goals easier. What's worked for us is setting aside time to discuss each of the different hats we wear; for example, if we're on a walk, we dedicate one topic per lap. It's all about finding what works for you. Support Your Partner, Especially When Things Are Hard One of the things we've learned over the last two years is how to support each other as parents, too. Even though we have different parenting styles, we can still show up and ‘tap-in' when we see the other struggling or needing a bit of extra alone time. When things get difficult, as they do, especially when spending close to 24 hours together, we've found that remembering what originally drew us to each other is helpful. Going back to those early roots can help a relationship stay alive and loving. Finally, it doesn't have to always be about the outcome. I've noticed how Mark is making more of an effort in many different areas. I'm so excited to see how our relationship together, as parents, and as business owners continues to grow and evolve. Homework for Women Physicians Are you and your partner setting aside time to have the conversations you need to? Do you struggle to set boundaries with your partner? Let me know in the comments on the episode page how I can support you! In This Episode How to discuss your goals as a couple [7:00] Why it's not only okay but essential, to have individual goals in a relationship [12:30] The importance of supporting your partner as parents [15:00] Remember why you fell for your partner in the beginning [22:30] The importance of setting aside time to have specific conversations [27:00] Why the effort often matters more than the outcome [28:30] Quotes “The conversation for us started with talking about our couple's goals. But, in order to get to those couple's goals, we needed to start with talking about our individual goals and what we're bringing to the table.” [6:55] “That individual goal really was more than that. I wanted to have the time with Ali, I wanted to be able to do these walks. Once I committed to that goal, I was able to find time, even in this current busy schedule, to achieve some of that.” [13:24] “How did we want to show up as parents? One of the things that we both agreed on was that we wanted to give them life experiences. We want to travel as much as we can, we want to do all those different types of things. When we have that bit to look forward to, it really reminds us of the parents that we do want to be. So when the little things happen, the feistiness or the dumbbells getting thrown, when the tap-outs are happening, we have a vision of how we want to show up as our best selves, as parents. Knowing that there will be different parenting styles amongst partners but it doesn't matter. You can still work those in and choose to support each other.” [17:36] Resources Mentioned Check out the full episode page here Find Life Coaching for Women Physicians Online Follow Dr. Ali Novitsky on Facebook | Instagram Subscribe to Life Coaching for Women Physicians on Apple Podcasts Podcast production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 79: Do More of What Works Episode 81: Say "Yes" to Yourself Episode 77: Not Just One of The Guys

It's episode 300!! I'm sharing my top 3 reflections of having a podcast (and a business) over the past 7 years. Hear stories about staying inspired, how to remain consistent, why just starting is the hardest, and all about the magic of trying new things. Thank you to YOU for tuning in, for sharing JSYJ with others, and for bringing joy into the world. I am sending you love, and wishes for comfort and joy. Over the past 300 episodes, I've had some learnings and find myself reflecting on them. Here's what I know to be true: 1. Just start. Whatever it is that you're longing to do, take that first baby step. The first step is always the hardest, and it's often the thing that keeps us from moving towards our purpose and our dreams. Recognize that it's likely fear that's holding you back, and that fear just wants to keep you safe. That doesn't always serve you, or your dreams. And, if you're already doing "the thing," you might find yourself dragging your feet to take future steps. Sometimes I dread editing my own show, but once I sit down, open the editing software, and get starting I love it, just like I always do. Procrastination is a dream killer. Get your momentum going by just starting. 2. Consistency. Consistency is about more than posting on a regular schedule. It's about the timing, about what you share, about the core of your message, it's about alignment between yourself and your business. It's also about showing up for yourself, and for your audience (or your customer, because consistency plays a role in product based businesses too), so they know when and where to find you. When I started I took the advice of Pat Flynn about remaining consistent with my podcast. In this episode, I also share a story about meeting Lewis Howes, and how that impacted my first year of podcasting. Consistency becomes easier when you're aligned across the board with what you love, what you do, what you talk about, and what feels right for your and your business or show. 3. Try New Things (or, living out "Well Planned, Loosely Held") When I started my show, and made the commitment to try it out for a whole year before making a decision on if I wanted to continue, my fried Christine Petty asked me the beautiful question of "imagine what is possible when you say yes to something for a year?" Her words have continued to inspire me, as they speak to the never ending possibilities that are out there when you say yes to your dreams. "Going off script" is another part of trying new things, and something that Andrea Scher shared about in episode 299. In her brand new book, "Wonder Seeker," Andrea talks about the idea of trying something brand new, and out of the ordinary and seeing what happens. In playing with my format for this show over the past 7 years, I have literally learned to go off script. I started with writing every solo episode out in its entirety. I no longer do this. In your show, or your blog, business, or life - find ways to keep things fresh. You can always keep with the core idea, and try on new "seasons," which offer a different way to look at a topic you've stuck with for a long time. Thank you all for tuning in! I have such deep appreciation for you, and wish you so much love, comfort, and joy.

Learn how to prioritize your customers' needs and the benefits of a comprehensive understanding of your company's customer experience. Recognize and leverage the math behind marketing, and get your sales and marketing teams working together to produce better results for your company and your customers.Key Takeaways:Prioritize what the client needs — what's important to your customer — ahead of what's important to your marketing team, your sales reps, and even your company. Why is what you have important to them? What problems can your product or service solve for them? Putting customer needs first is the key to long term success.We say marketing is 50% art and 50% science. Today, the science of marketing is all about data and math. Potential customers can find a lot of information about your company without ever involving you, so they're about 70% of the way to deciding on your product or service before your sales rep is invited to the table. To figure out what they're looking for, marketers should recognize and utilize relevant data analytics.Sales and marketing are two sides of the same coin. In some companies, the culture pits them against each other, but they both work better — more efficiently and more effectively — when they're part of the same team. Sales reps can rely on marketing to create content with the information potential customers want and need, and marketing can get content direction, such as FAQs, from the sales team.Hope you enjoyed this episode of B2B Mentors!

This week we're talking about GRATITUDE! Why? Well… gratitude is our brain's superfood. If we can feel gratitude... it helps us to feel happier, less depressed, more creative, and more abundant. Heck… it can even work in our brain's memory centers to help us remember more! ALL the good stuff! BUT... how do we stir it up? Especially on those days when it might be a little hard to feel grateful? On those days circumstances make it a real stretch to feel gratitude? We know we want to… but how do we get there? In this episode, I share some science and a few of my own favorite strategies. BUT I also share 12 tips from YOU… Dream Think Doers who answered the call… “How do YOU get to gratitude?” It makes for a very special episode that I think you're going to love. Most importantly… we're going to help YOU to find YOUR “Gratitude Secret Weapon!” So let's get to this! RELATED DREAM THINK DO EPISODES: The “Christmas Carol Method” of getting to Gratitude: https://mitchmatthews.com/304/ The “Rest vs. Restoration” Experiment: https://mitchmatthews.com/330/ DREAM BIG… No Matter What (with Amberly Lago): https://mitchmatthews.com/310/ The FIVE Non-Negotiables for an Ideal Day (with Sarah Yourgrau): https://mitchmatthews.com/294/ MORE ABOUT THE The Gratitude Secret Weapon EPISODE: Gratitude is our brain's SUPERFOOD. (The upside is that it doesn't taste nasty like Kale. LOL!) There's PLENTY of science to show that when we intentionally stir up Gratitude… it makes a BIG difference IN our bodies and WITH our perspective on the day and our world! BUT the question is: HOW do you get there? With this episode, I'm going to walk you through 14 different strategies to help you fill your Gratitude ToolBox! The extra-special part of this episode is that 12 of those ideas come from YOU! That's right! I posed the question on Facebook and you guys BROUGHT IT! (By the way… if we're not connected on Facebook… make sure to reach out there! Let's friend it up… friend!) The "Gratitude Secret Weapon" is a simple two-step process: 1.) Acknowledge the importance of Gratitude 2.) Find YOUR way to stir it up! My GO-TO Gratitude Strategy: “Gratitude… NOW!” Listen to the episode to get the full story, but I like to ask the simple question: “What can I be grateful for... RIGHT NOW?” Melissa's GO TO Gratitude Strategy: “Gratitude for YOU!” Again… listen to the episode to get the full story, but my bride finds that her “Secret Weapon” for stirring up true gratitude is to relay her gratitude to someone else. She LOVES to tell others how she's grateful for them. It's a true gratitude win/win! SO… I asked YOU what YOU do to stir up gratitude… to get your brain some of that superfood! And you BROUGHT it!!! You submitted ideas… and I'll admit I added names to make them a bit more memorable! But here are the ideas… in your own words. So… here we go! 1.) "Snooze Bar" Gratitude Denise Griffitts: “What a lovely idea! I used to be one of those people who would hit the floor running and as my mom would say, oh crap she's awake. But over time I have learned to stay in the bed, breathe, and examine what I am so grateful for. It starts the morning in a perfect kind of way. There's a lot to be said for quiet moments of reflection.” 2.) The "Tuck the Day Away" Strategy: Annie Caves: “Honestly I think it was realizing it is good and bad in every day- and what you focus on is made bigger. I heard that how you end your day is how you “tuck it away” in your mind- so I ask the questions: What good thing happened today? What am I grateful for tonight? It helps me to tuck each day away as a good day! It is truly a practice - and when life SUCKS is when I am more mindful of finding what I'm grateful for.” NOTE: A LOT of people suggested keeping a Gratitude Journal. Chuck Thuss brought his to our recent “Next Level Speaker Event” and he showed folks how he's been doing this for YEARS and it's made a HUGE impact on his life. 3.) "Dinner Table" Gratitude Dan Zehner: “Every night with our kids, everyone in the family shares at least one thing we're grateful for. My 3-year-old is constantly grateful for pre-school (too cute). Sometimes it's a favorite toy, time with mom and dad, or just getting to watch their favorite show. It's a great time as a family!” 4.) Find It and Turn it UP! Denny Ransom: “My daily(ish) practice: I pull up mental images of the people and things in my life that I'm most grateful for. I cycle through those images until I feel a sense of gratitude in my body. Once I have that feeling, I turn all of my attention to how gratitude feels in my body, which tends to amplify it. Once I have that feeling 'turned up as much as I can get, I start repeating a little mantra I have: "My life is filled with blessings, I am grateful." Through repetition with this process, I've pretty much anchored the feeling of gratitude to that phrase. If I'm struggling, or need quick access to a state of gratitude, now I can just say that phrase a few times and the feeling of gratitude comes alive in me almost instantly. This practice was a game-changer for learning how to quickly access resourceful states.” 5.) "Happy Memory" Gratitude Julie Thompson: “I learned recently to think back on a happy memory and remember the feelings of gratitude and joy I had. I might think about a family vacation, a special holiday, or a time that I experienced joy while in nature, like standing on a mountain and being captured by the view. I also name things out loud for which I am grateful, and I use Ann Voskamp's monthly gratitude list of ideas from her website.” 6.) The "Gratitude Together" Strategy: Cheryl Swisher: “I am part of a group and we submit 1 thing daily that we are grateful for the next 30 days.” Create a group and start doing this! 7.) The "It's Not ALL Me" Strategy: Patricia Ortega: “I can be a little prideful, so I start with what I'm most proud of (big success at work, owning a home, good marriage...) then I stop and think about how it was NOT all me who made that happen (sometimes it's not me at all!)... I have been blessed by other people, circumstances, resources, that made these things possible. For example my husband's amazing grace, patience, love, and leadership play a major/primary role in making our marriage great, and it's what I'm soooo grateful for ❤️. So my little activity works on both my gratitude and humility. Because God knows we need both. :)” 8.) The "It's a Wonderful Life" Strategy: Nicholas Andrew: “For me, gratitude starts with selflessness. I meditate on what I have and then picture my life specifically without those things. I get deep into what it would feel like to not have who and what I have. I then look again at what I have In my life and the fact that I wake up every morning to it. I thank God for waking me up and then just have a moment of silence with myself. But going deep on the emotions of what life would be like if you lost everything puts what you do have in perspective. I don't take little things for granted as much. My Attitude is Gratitude! For me, it starts and ends with Flip'n your mindset to Flip your Reality.” QUICK LISTENER SHOUT OUT!!! See if it's you! Click here. 9.) The "Grateful TOGETHER" Strategy: LeeLee Genovese:“Gratitude is the single most important practice I have ever taken on. I do it daily, usually in my journal, but also focusing on things I am grateful for, happy about, excited about, proud of, committed to, who I love, etc.. to mix up the focus. I also have categories to spread the grateful love around and think about my mind, body, spirit, family, nature, experiences, beliefs, friends, tangibles, and intangibles, ohhh Love it so. ***BUT, the single most exciting part of my gratitude practice is that at the beginning of last year my husband and I started one together. Simple and sweet and my favorite part of the day. It is also a blessed way to end the day as we do it just before we go to bed, pillow talk gratitude if you will. I started asking my husband what he was grateful for and he loved it so much we often race to be the first to ask. Just the asking warms my heart. The things we share always fill my heart with happiness and love. Communication is powerful as we often learn about each other, or are reminded about the wonderful things we both like doing together, dream together, set goals and intentions together. It is surely a powerful practice for any relationship, I highly recommend it. I'm addicted and can't sleep without it.” 10.) The "Random Acts of Gratitude" Strategy (RAGS): Heather Medford: “I practice random acts of kindness. I'm pretty good about doing that often, but especially if I am in a funk, I will go out and intentionally share smiles and kindness! It's the best way to snap myself back into gratitude!” 11.) The "Write a Letter" Strategy: Aree Bly: If I really want to go big, I write a letter. Full-size paper. Pen. Envelope with a stamp. It's like writing a journal entry about how an individual has impacted me, and also letting them know it. So I get my own gratitude and I get to share it with them. Win-win. 12.) The "Send it Ahead" Strategy: Sonja Sorenson Arnold: “In the morning I send my gratitude ahead of me. I think about (sometimes write them down) what is happening today that I will be grateful for. I think about who I will see and activities I will engage in and let myself feel that gratitude. Then when they happen I can add a second layer of gratitude... even when if they play out differently than expected! I'm still thankful and move into gratitude! So there you have it. 12 + the two from Melissa and me. 14 different ideas for sparking gratitude. REMEMBER: The key is: Recognize the power of gratitude in our lives Find YOUR secret weapon a.) That thing that YOU do! b.) Maybe it's one of these 14 c.) Or maybe you adapt one of these d.) Find YOUR way… and that will be YOUR “Secret Weapon” One last note… In the end… I've found that having a number of different tools to get to gratitude is my secret weapon… because I like to mix things up AND I have a short attention span… so I need to keep things fresh! If you can identify with THAT… I hope these 14 added some new tools to the toolbox! Okay… well… if you're in the US… I hope you have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving! And no matter where you are listening from in the world… know that I'm GRATEFUL FOR YOU! Seriously!!! Please share this episode with someone who might need it! And if you haven't already… please leave a review wherever you listen to the podcast! LASTLY… I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! Let's keep the conversation going!

“I think the X Factor is empathy, right? I think they have to be able to see the world from the perspective of their employees...You came up through the ranks being the hero in your own head, you got promoted, because you are the hero, you are the expert, right?

A call to be generous & servant hearted "In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.' ” - Acts 20:35 We can witness to unsaved family and friends this way and be a good model for our kids. "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." - Matthew 5:16 We are called to use the life and resources that God has given us to serve. "You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh ; rather, serve one another humbly in love." - Galatians 5:13 Examine our expectations With this in mind, let's be ultra clear on what our expectations are for the holidays. Many of us go into the day with grand ideas and an agenda. We have a picture of how this family get together will be and what we will do. Plans don't always go our way. So plan for the day, expect God's glory to be shone, and let all the little things go. If we have unrealistic expectations, the holidays will never be fun and we will probably be upset or angry. Let's remember to serve and glorify God with these days. Remember those who are hurting this holiday season I never understood how hard the holidays could be until my mom passed away. My eyes were opened to the fact that the holidays can be incredible for so many and incredibly sad for so many others. Look out for who you can serve. Who needs some encouragement or a hug this holiday season? Who doesn't have any family to spend the holidays with? Watch for ways that you and your family can serve. Make the holidays about Christ I love November and December. I adore putting up Christmas lights and walking down the oldest street in town, hot chocolate in hand, and ooing over all the lights and houses. I love Christmas carols and sitting by the fire. I love the ambiance and the time of year. But above all of those things, we love Christ. And as in everyday life, we should seek to make the holidays firmly about Christ. Let's make sure to center our celebrations and our joy around HIM. Christmas carols: https://uribrito.com/optimism-christmas-carols/ I have a few goals as I head into the holiday season: Recognize that this is a busy season. This is not the time for mama to kick her feet up and have the perfect holiday. It's the time we can serve and love our families in the best possible way. Adjust your expectations accordingly. If you go into this season with the right perspective, it can change everything. I want to have a servants heart - and look for ways I can serve Bring my family together. More family time, not less, is my goal during the busy holiday season. For our young ages, this sometimes looks like saying no to friends things so we can just be home as a family of 8 together. Finally and most importantly: Bring glory to God. Make our mission about Christ in all we do. From thanksgiving praises, to working hard in the kitchen, from thinking ahead as to how we can be a blessing at relatives houses, to being the first to offer to clean up, from focusing on Scripture to singing joyful Christmas caroles together: We can aim to be bring glory to God in everything we do.

BIO: Fred Diamond is the co-founder of the Institute for Excellence in Sales, a member organization for sales leaders and their teams. STORY: Fred had a friend in college who reached out to him three times requesting him to work for him over the years. Fred turned him down every single time. That friend ended up building a company that he sold three times over for five billion dollars. LEARNING: Be open to the opportunities that come your way. Work with people you like and trust and who trust you too. “If you want to start working for yourself, start now.”Fred Diamond Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/freddiamond/ (Fred Diamond) is the co-founder of the https://i4esbd.com/ (Institute for Excellence in Sales), a member organization for sales leaders and their teams. Members include Amazon, Salesforce, Red Hat Software, and Intel. He is also the host and producer of the award-winning https://www.salesgamechangerspodcast.com/ (Sales Game Changers) Podcast and webcasts. Fred is based in Washington, D.C. Worst investment everTwo years after Fred graduated, he got a call from his college friend, Mark. He told him that he was starting a company and was inviting people to go to New York and talk about what kind of company they should start. Even though Fred was impressed with Mark in college, he didn't consider him a serious entrepreneur, so he didn't go for the meeting. About seven years later, Mark called Fred. At the time, Fred was working at Compaq computer while Mark sold direct marketing services. He asked Fred if he could get a meeting at Compaq to pitch his services. Fred got him a meeting with the guy in charge of direct marketing, and he did a great presentation. Afterward, Mark asked Fred to work for him and help him take his company to the next level. Fred still didn't quite see his friend as a serious entrepreneur, so he said he wanted to stay at Compaq. Over the next couple of years, Fred moved to several companies, and eventually, he decided he wanted to work with pre-IPO startups. He happened to be in New Jersey on his way to Germany for some customer meetings and decided to have lunch with Mark. He told him of his desire to work with pre-IPO startups. Again, Mark asked Fred to work for him in D.C. He'd pay him $150,000 a year and give him 10,000 shares. Again, Fred turned Mark down because he didn't think his company was what he thought a pre-IPO company looked like. Fred went on to work with two pre-IPO companies that folded in just a year. Eventually, he started his own company that has gone to be the success it is today. While Fred is successful today, he regrets missing the opportunity to work with Mark, who built a company that he sold three times over for five billion dollars. Lessons learnedLearn about people in your circles who seem to be successful. Find people you can trust and who trust you. You've got to see what the opportunities might be and then step in to take them. Work with people that you like. Andrew's takeawaysWhen we're in a situation, we see things differently than how we see them coming out of that situation. Now and then, things are going to seem glaringly obvious. But most of the time, it's not going to be that clear and obvious. Be open to opportunities and grab those that are right in front of you. Actionable adviceIf you want to work for yourself, start sooner. If you're committed, cut the bait, meet some brilliant people, be smart, hire someone, figure out where the cash flow will come from, and get the support of a spouse. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsFred's number one goal for the next 12 months is to triple the sales of the Institute for Excellence. Parting words “Start today. There's no better time than today. Get out there and make something happen.”Fred Diamond [spp-transcript] Connect with Fred Diamond https://www.linkedin.com/in/freddiamond/ (LinkedIn) https://twitter.com/IESBD (Twitter)...

223 In this episode, I continue to teach on how you and I need to learn to not judge people based on what they look like or sound like.2 Corinthians 5:16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no more.I attempt to pull this lesson together by the fact when Jesus returned to His disciples after His resurrection His disciples did not recognize Him. If you and I could learn to see God's children the way God sees His children I believe it would be easier to walk in love.
One of the perennial questions writers ask is, “Where do you get good ideas?” It's a fair question because all of us have struggled with finding good ones for our writing. The overriding feeling we have is that we need to do something more, or add some technique, in order to find great ideas. It's not a matter of doing something more, it's actually a matter of doing something less. On this episode, Kent shares how to orient your life so you can be in the mindset to have good ideas. *** Are you looking for a community of enthusiastic, generous writers to help you build better habits and grow your writing business?

HIS POWER FOR OUR WEAKNESS Today's readings are Psalm 124 and II Corinthians 11-13. We are reading from the New Living Translation Paul was being called out for his weakness. There were some who, apparently faulted him for not being the most dynamic, flamboyant speaker. Super-apostles had come to town and were adding to the confusion of this church. They were denouncing Paul's authority and preaching another gospel that was not the Gospel, at all. In our reading today, Paul takes the opportunity to teach us something about real power, strength, and authority. God delights to show Himself strong through our weaknesses. Paul accomplished so much over the course of his adult life. He traversed so much of the known world, planted churches, spoke before kings and governors, wrote letters, discipled people that discipled people, and now you are discipled, because of what he had done. Yet when listing his accomplishments, he points to times of trial, peril, persecutions, poverty, and personal struggle. Paul says that the places where real power, strength and authority can be seen are not from a platform, a boasting heart, or a flamboyant preacher. Real power is seen where real power is needed most. It's seen in our weaknesses. It shows up when things are falling apart and when we're broken down and in deepest need. That's when we can count on experiencing God's power, strength and authority – His life in us. It's most evident when we need him most, when our back is against the wall, when we are under threat, when we don't know what to do, when we are holding on in the middle of a storm, for a day and a night. Paul says these are the times when he found God's strength and presence. Don't miss this teaching from Paul, amidst the flamboyant preachers and super-apostles claiming all sorts of special knowledge. The greatest Strength can be found in our weakness. “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness. I'm glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” (II Cor 12:9) Recognize and trust, today, that God's strength is best shown in your weakness.
Track the Last Date Contacted When we are keeping up with the relationships that matter most, you may not want to systemize and track the date you last contacted someone. Using a CRM may seem impersonal to building authentic relationships in your online communities and in-person networks. When we are building those relationships it will take a little more initiative and attention to keep those relationships growing, nurtured, and fulfilled. So easily we may forget about a relationship and let it slide to the wayside. All of a sudden that person is no longer a friend, but an acquaintance. It is no one's fault, but it happens. If it was a relationship that was very important to you, you might feel a bit guilty. Recognize that that fallout could have been prevented if you had a system to track the relationships that matter the most. When using a CRM, you don't have to track everyone's birthdays or pets or how many kids they have. I would like to encourage you to track the last date you contacted them in order to stay on top of that relationship. This way you can see when the distance has grown between now and the last date contacted. You can assess if you should reach out to them again. This doesn't have to be hard at all. I do this as part of my daily R.I.Z.E. (Reach Inbox Zero Everywhere). You can get fancy in your CRM and add automations about how often you'd like to contact this person. We don't want this to feel routine and cold, but it should help you manage each important relationship in your life to make sure it is nurtured. If you track just one thing about the people that you contact, track the last date you contacted them. Ready, Set, Done ✅ --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/productivitytip/message

In this Life Check Yourself podcast, Marni facilitates a live coaching episode with Michelle. Michelle has been divorced for almost eight years. She has been dating for a while but seems to sabotage relationships when she starts falling for a guy because she is scared. Marni offers her some tools to use when she feels herself pulling away. Key takeaways from this episode: Redefining what a high-quality guy is Creating emotional safety Being compassionate with your process How to stop sabotaging relationships Why Are You Scared to Get Close? [2:39] Michelle dates outgoing, professional guys who are fun to be with but elusive. They look good on paper and check all the boxes and should-haves. What is holding Michelle back is that internally she feels as soon as things start going well she will become disappointed. Therefore, she never achieves emotional intimacy with them, even after dating for a couple of years. This stems from having her feelings hurt and not feeling heard when she was a child. There is a difference between being cautiously optimistic and having expectations. Michelle doesn't trust her feelings because no one validated her as a child. Deep down she fears abandonment. She recognizes she feels stuck and needs to nurture the little girl inside of her. The Path to Meet a High-Quality Man [27:03] Marni offers Michelle the tools to help her connect to her intuition and her essence. When she empowers herself to have the emotional intelligence she wants to have, she will feel emotionally safe and grounded. Marni reminds her that we attract who we are. If she is emotionally open, she will attract a man who is also emotionally open. By creating our own emotional safety we start attracting people into our lives who are emotionally available. Michelle is going to: Be more compassionate with her process. Address her little girl inside and reassure and validate her. Recognize when she starts to feel scared and calm herself. Start trusting herself and allow herself to be optimistic about relationships.

Timothy Snyder (@TimothyDSnyder) is the Housum Professor of History at Yale University and author of Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning and On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century. What We Discuss with Timothy Snyder: Democracy has to be an ongoing activity — not a waiting game for the next election cycle. How fragile a democratic republic can be against the concentrated efforts of would-be tyrants — and that the United States is not immune to their strategies. The small actions we can take every day to ensure we’re doing our part to maintain an open and free society. How to consume information critically in a “post-fact” world. Recognize the scary parallels between historic catastrophes and current events. And much more...
