In this week's 5-minute episode, Dr. Cindra shares that failure is inevitable and when you define failure on your terms, you are able to see failure as an event, not who you are. You are able to keep pushing outside your comfort zone because that is how you learn and grow. Remember you want to fail. That means you are pushing yourself to be all you can be and stepping into your potential.


This Week's Power Phrase: “I see failure and mistakes as opportunity to learn and grow.”

Quote of the Week: Zig Ziglar said it best, “Failure is an event, never a person; an attitude, not an outcome; a temporary inconvenience; a stepping stone. Our response to it determines just how helpful it can be.”

The World’s Best choose courage instead of fear. They feel the fear, but don’t let it keep them from doing what they want to, have to, or were designed to do. As Jimmy Johnson, the coach who led the Dallas Cowboys to two consecutive Super Bowls, once said, “Do you want to be safe and good, or do you want to take a chance and be great?”
 
This Week's Power Phrase: “I embrace my fear and choose courage.”

Quote of the Week: “Do the thing that you fear to do and keep on doing it…that is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer your fear.” - Dale Carnegie (American author)

Flying an airplane is a challenging activity, even in clear skies and perfect weather…

Now imagine you are flying a plane in combat. The enemy on the ground is trying to kill you by shooting down your plane. All while you are trying to save the lives of YOUR TEAM on the ground who are under attack. That's exactly what Martha McSally did as an A-10 fighter pilot in the Air Force. 

Martha's life has been spent overcoming things like fear, self-doubt, trauma, adversity, and obstacles. 

After arriving at the U.S. Air Force Academy for basic training at 18, she was told that it was against the law for women to become fighter pilots. 

So what did she do? She decided that’s exactly what she would do and became the first woman in U.S. history to fly a fighter jet in combat! 

Plus, she later became the 1st woman in U.S. history to command a fighter squadron….which meant, in combat, she was the first one in and the last one out! She deployed 6 times to the Middle East and Afghanistan, flying 325 combat hours, earning the bronze star and six air metals. 

After serving our country for 26 years in the Air Force and retiring as a full Colonel, Martha was elected to Congress. She served 2 terms in the U.S. House of Representative and was appointed to the U.S. Senate after Senator John McCain’s passing. As you can imagine, she has had a front row seat, and been an active participant, in shaping the world we live in… always in service to others.

Now, Martha continues to serve by sharing her hard-learned life and leadership lessons through keynote speaking, online courses, and beyond. 

In this episode, Martha and Cindra talk about the:

  • The ways fear holds you back from your dreams 

  • How you can “Drop the Drag”

  • How to intentionally shape your identity

  • And, she openly shares how she has worked through trauma in her own life to help us understand how we can work through ours.

 As a high achiever, it is good to strive for success and have high expectations. These high standards keep you going, striving to be your best. When you strive to be your best, you help others around you do the same. But perfection is unattainable. Instead, consider striving for excellence instead and Dr. Cindra shares with us how to do just that.

Power Phrase this Week: “I am kind to myself when things don’t go perfectly moving on quickly to protect my confidence.”

Quote of the Week: “At the root of perfectionism isn’t really about a deep love for being meticulous. It’s about fear. Fear of making a mistake. Fear of disappointing others. Fear of failure.” - Michael Law

Flow is like a muscle—the more you train and experience flow. In this episode, Dr. Kamphoff shares the 3 barriers that get in the way of flow for you.

Power Phrase this Week: “My mind is like a muscle. I train my mind to increase my chances of finding flow.”

Quote of the Week: “Flow is being completely involved in the activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies.” - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Wherever you are on that scale, the mindset that Joel is going to share with you can help you be an even better speaker and communicator. Joel has been paid to speak at over 3,000 events and has personally coached well over 10,000 speakers. He is considered one of the highest performing speakers and speaking skill coaches in America.

Apr 16, 2024

Leading yourself can be very difficult because our brain is hardwired to see what is missing. Instead, you can lead yourself to your own personal vision by remembering:

  1. What you think about yourself, you become.
  2. Thoughts only have power if you believe them. 
  3. You can act independent of how you feel.

Chance thinking doesn’t lead to success – instead, make time each day to master your thoughts and lead yourself even more deliberately.

 

This Week's Power Phrase: “I lead myself today.”

Quote of the Week: “Work harder on yourself than you do your job.” — Jim Rohn
