Failing Forward

EMBRACE FAILURE

What is failure? And why has it gotten a bad rap?

Most of us have gone through an education system that stigmatizes mistakes. Make mistakes, and you get low grades. Make enough mistakes, and you fail.

Failing earns you the label of loser, a person of low intelligence. If you accept the label, you step into a low status identity. That identity becomes the frame through which you view the world.

CHANGE THE FRAME

Refuse to see failure as something negative. Answer the question, “what is failure,” like this. Failure is an important necessary step on the road to success. You’ll be in great company.

Thomas Edison is a prime example of man who delighted in failure. On the subject of his many “failed” attempts to invent the light bulb, Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

MINDSET – MINDSET – MINDSET

You may know exactly what the word mindset means. But until you experience the power of shifting your mindset, of changing your limiting beliefs (stories) to empowering ones, you won’t fully appreciate the meaning of mindset.

Freedom Story

FREEDOM! We all want it. People fight for it. They live and die for it. So, we must all know what it is.

The truth is that if you ask one hundred people to define freedom, you will get one hundred different answers. All of them are valid. All of them are right.

The guest on today’s podcast is John Krotec, a man who is passionate about freedom. He’s an entrepreneur, writer, and army veteran.

He gained his understanding of freedom by fighting tough battles in his own life and winning. His journey highlights the theme of this show, Change Your Story, Change Your Life.

When John abused alcohol, he had to change his story. When he suffered a brain injury in a car crash, he had to change his story. When his marriage was on the rocks, he had to change his story. He did it every time and grew into the inspiring person he is today.

You’ll gain a lot by listening to John’s story. You’ll learn what it really mens to be bigger than your circumstances. You’ll come away with a greater appreciation for a business model that marries contribution and profit.

John created a company based on that model called Greenzone Hero. It honors and supports veterans who fought for our freedom. Greenzone Hero also gives veterans a platform to share their stories.

You’ll tap into your innate sense of compassion for war veterans who have sacrificed their well being and their lives to create more freedom and abundance for all of us.

John may even ignite a new entrepreneurial flame in you that can enrich your business, your life, and the lives of others.

Choice Is Power

How can you step into leadership? First, you must learn to lead yourself; only then, can you lead others.

The most effective leaders do not lead by coercion or force. They lead by example; they inspire people to follow them.

Willard Barth is a strong effective leader. He developed his leadership in the front lines of life and business.

He fought personal demons and conquered them. He endured hardship that could have broken him and driven him to play the victim. He became a warrior sage instead.

Warrior sage is not an easily earned title. It isn’t won in the classroom. It’s one of the spoils of war on the battlefield of personal growth.

It is won by having the courage to choose one hundred percent responsibility. When you do that, you own your strengths and your weaknesses, your victories and defeats.

This interview with Willard Barth is for you if you want to learn valuable lessons about leadership, growth, and transformation.

Join us. I promise you enrichment and entertainment.
