Alex Charfen says the world is uncomfortable because EPT’s make them nervous. Most people want things to stay the same. Societal systems (like public education) are set up to standardize behavior and suppress what’s unique, different or new. Recognizing this, entrepreneurs can reverse the cycle of Entrepreneurial Suppression to maximize their unique attributes and live in their strengths.

Top 10 of 2016 - Number 6 - Michael Weinberger

We’re counting down the top 10 episodes of 2016 on the 1 Simple Thing podcast. Today is number 6 on the list. Episode 522: The Peace of Spirituality. We hope you enjoy it and Merry Christmas!

Michael Weinberger talks about the second of what he calls “the big three” of our emotional health: spirituality. Spirituality is anything that occurs in the universe that you can’t possibly explain or under-stand. Some things happen around us, and we don’t know why or how they happen, but they happen for a reason. And spirituality is to let go of those things and trust God to take over the things over which I have no control.

We’re counting down the top 10 episodes of 2016 on the 1 Simple Thing podcast. Today is number 7 on the list. Episode 578: Being A Copycat Instead Of A Unicorn. We hope you enjoy it and Merry Christmas!

Stephanie Melish talks about the difference between being a copycat and a unicorn when it comes to our business. The copycat will always be one step behind the original, and you are probably not going to win that way. But when you strive to be the unique version of yourself - the unicorn within you - you can begin to create something the world has never seen. You have a unique perspective, voice, and vision, and the world needs people who can share that vision instead of just copying someone else’s.

Top 10 of 2016 - Number 10 - Jason Treu

We’re counting down the top 10 episodes of 2016 on the 1 Simple Thing podcast. Today’s is number 10 on the list. Episode 383: How to Connect Emotionally With Others. We hope you enjoy it and Merry Christmas!

Author Jason Treu says you can build relationships much faster than you think if you connect with people emotionally. People have had tons of bad interactions, and typically those interactions have consisted of the same old boring questions. If you meet someone in a professional setting people always ask you, “What do you do?” and it’s boring. Instead, ask people about what they love and what they are emotionally connected to, because everyone is emotional. Lead with emotional questions because when you get down to what someone cares about, you get to know them a lot better than you normally would.
