226: Professional Victims

ARE THERE PROFESSIONAL VICTIMS?

I wish I could answer no, but I can’t. Unfortunately, the truth is that there are many professional victims, and their club is growing exponentially in today’s world.

This episode explores the victim mindset that I have labelled Rearden Syndrome. The name refers to a principal character, Hank Rearden, in Ayn Rand’s 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged. The book quickly became an entrepreneur’s manifesto, and it still is today.

Our podcast guest is Randy Gage, a mega-successful entrepreneur, multi-millionaire, international award winning speaker, and prosperity trainer and coach to people around the world who are committed to their personal and financial growth. Atlas Shrugged has been and still is a powerful inspirational book for Randy.

Here are a few of the life changing insights you’ll find in my conversation with Randy Gage:

  • The true nature of the professional victim
  • The personal and financial habits of a victim
  • How and why victims get addicted to blame
  • The shocking truth that we all teach people how to treat us.
  • Why you may let others decide what you are worth
  • The importance of value creation in the 21st century
  • Why you should face the fear of getting paid for your value rather than your time

You can listen to this episode passively or actively. By choosing the latter, you are choosing to live into a self-directed empowering narrative for a very fulfilling life.

224: Fly High

Will You Dare to Fly Too High?

This episode explores the powerful social story that controls many of our lives today.

It is a story that demands our obedience, our conformity, our silence, and our willingness to destroy our dreams that challenge the status quo.

It is a story that made the industrial age and corporate culture dominant for many decades. It is a story that is disintegrating. But, it still hold son to us and stops us from creating, growing, and standing out.

In 2020, we are living in the Connection Age , the Connection Economy. To be fully alive in this new and exciting time, we must not conform. We must, instead, find the courage to create art. I’m not talking about paintings, or sculptures, or music.

You may create those. But, art, in the Connection Age, means your unique authentic voice, your STORY.

These liberating ideas are from a wonderful book, The Icarus Deception, by Seth Godin.

You deserve to listen to this episode. It will help you unleash your pure, strong, authentic voice. It will help you give yourself full permission to create, stop worrying about others’ approval, and, ultimately, feel fully alive.

223: All Beliefs Are Stories

This episode is a continuation of our exploration about you beliefs as made up stories. It takes you on a fascinating, sometimes scary ride, into your unconscious mind and reveals it’s power to create reality.

Some things you will discover in this episode:

  • The answer to the question, “Would you confess to a crime you did not commit?”
  • Any thought that you focus on long enough can become your reality.
  • A documented shocking case of false confession.
  • What a play about the Salem witch trials of 1692 can teach you about your mind and your life.
  • The possibility for remarkable transformation in your life.

222: Your Beliefs Are Stories

Humans are hardwired to feel that their beliefs are real. We filter all that we see and hear through our beliefs and think that the world we perceive is objective reality.

There is so much evidence to prove that all beliefs are just made up stories. Why do we make them up? In order to feel that our lives are on solid ground. There is an upside to that. There is also a major downside.

Our beliefs often clash with the beliefs of others. If we hold on to our narratives tightly we will experience discord, even violence and unhappiness.

Also, if we insist that our beliefs are object reality, it becomes hard for us to empathize with and understand people with very different beliefs than others. And, our blindness makes us vulnerable to unconsciously adopting beliefs that can harm us and others.

A great example of a belief that was passionately held as true was the idea that the German people were the master race,and that Jews were subhumans who should be exterminated. We must not forget that a large segment of German society embraced that belief without question. More importantly, the people who embraced Naziism were, for the most part, ordinary human beings like you and me.

The moment we get beyond our fear of letting beliefs go and accepting that they are stories, we step into the power to create any narrative we want to enrich and empower our lives.
