You’ll have more energy to sustain you and your goals over years and decades when you cultivate your grit. Success is about sustained performance over time, and cultivating your grit each day is necessary to do so. 

Power Phrase this Week: “I am gritty. I am passionate and have a clear vision of the life I am building.” 

Quote of the Week: “Grit is sticking with your future day in, day out and not just for a week, not just for the month, but for years.” Angela Duckworth, Professor at University of Pennsylvania 

Jan 19, 2023
This week on the podcast, we talk about various ways to adopt a growth mindset vs. a fixed mindset. When we adopt a growth mindset, we see challenges as exciting and find optimistic ways of explaining adversity. A growth mindset has been linked to achievement, more happiness, healthier relationships, and a higher motivation.
 

“Quote of the Week: "I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”  Michael Jordan

 

Power Phrase of the Week: "When I get frustrated with my progress, I will remind myself I just haven’t done it yet.”

Jan 9, 2023

In this episode, we encourage you to think about what you really want in 2023. High performers set goals because it gives them direction and focus. They write their goals down. They follow through with their goals and keep them in mind during the year. They write down the steps to reach their goals, and then are flexible along the way. 

Power Phrase of the Week: “I am focused on my goals in 2023.”  

Quote of the Week: “Your goals are the road maps that guide you and show you what is possible for your life.” Les Brown 

Jan 3, 2023

Angie Bastian, along with her husband, Dan, are the founders of Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP, one of the most successful homegrown snack food stories in the 21st century. 

 

Angie and Dan Bastian were looking to put aside some money for their kids’ college fund when they started a small kettle corn business out of the family’s garage. They sold the popcorn at festivals and sporting events, eventually becoming the official popcorn of the Minnesota Vikings after delivering several free bags of popcorn to the players to eat while they watched film during training camp. Eventually, Angie retired from her work as a nurse practitioner and Dan from teaching history to run their company full-time. 

 

The ultimate game changer took place when Angie’s Kettle Corn became BOOMCHICKAPOP, and the rebranding took place. Several years later, Dan and Angie, sold the business in the fall of 2017 as a part of a $250 million dollar buyout by Conagra Brands.

 

In this episode, Angie shares with us:

  • How the popcorn company started,
  • The behind-the-scenes story of the naming of BOOMCHICKAPOP,
  • The strategies they used to overcame setbacks to build the company, 
  • Why we should not discount our own unique perspectives, and 
  • Her personal passions driving her today.

 

“Don’t discount your own unique perspective.” Angie Bastian

“When your brain says that you’re done, you’re only 40 percent done.” —David Goggins, Navy SEAL and ultramarathoner 

 

Remember the following this week: when I feel like giving in or giving up, I’ll remember the 40 percent rule and how much more I have to give—perhaps up to 60 percent more! When I feel emotional or physical discomfort this week, I’ll remember that discomfort is an ally, not an enemy. To embrace my discomfort, I will write out a discomfort plan so I am ready and can stay gritty. 

 

 Power Phrase this Week: “I have a reserve tank that hasn’t even been tapped. I work hard, stay the course, and remain gritty.”

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than the fear.” Franklin D. Roosevelt 

High performers choose courage instead of comfort. To choose courage over comfort, consider what you can do TODAY that is uncomfortable. Courage is a muscle – the more you use it, the better you get at it. Being uncomfortable each day is the fastest way to make your vision for your life a reality and it’s the only way to reach the people you are intended to serve. Discomfort is the price you pay to experience success, step into your destiny and live a meaningful life. What will you do today to be uncomfortable?  

This Week's Power Phrase: “I choose courage over comfort. I flex my courage muscle and go for it.”
