“Retirement starts with the dream” with Chris Hogan

Chris Hogan says it’s important for all of us to understand the power of our dreams. We all have things we want to do, and it’s important to tap into them because dreams are a better motivator than fear. Fear will motivate you for a little while, but it doesn’t last. Why? Because it’s a negative drag on us. But our dreams are an encouraging kind of motivation, so we’re willing to strive and sacrifice for them because we know deep inside what we want to do.

“How to Connect Emotionally With Others” with Jason Treu

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.

“Fear is a Compass” with Jason Treu

Author Jason Treu says the fear of failure, rejection, and uncertainties are often significant problems for entrepreneurs, especially when we’re treading into new territory. Successful entrepreneurs fall on their face at least once, often many times, when doing anything new. But when we embrace the fear and let it guide us, fear can be the compass that gets us to our destination.

“Don’t Let “NO” Get You Down” with Andrea Waltz

Author Andrea Waltz talks about staying persistent in embracing and even pursuing “no.” Successful people fail eagerly while failures avoid failing. There seems to be a stigma about failure that makes us feel bad and even want to quit. We think, “I’m probably going to fail, so why even try?” That attitude holds us back from some amazing opportunities because being willing to fail is what creates the chance for success.

“Setting Your No Goal” with Andrea Waltz

Author Andrea Waltz encourages us to track our failure rate. She wants us to be aware of how many times we get a “no,” and even set goals and celebrate how many times we will hear “no.” Tracking your frequency of “no” gives you an awareness of how you are doing and enables you to make adjustments in your message. And celebrating them is a way to make it fun. Remember, the more times you hear “no,” the more times you’ll hear “yes.”

“Intentionally Get a NO” with Andrea Waltz

Author Andrea Waltz encourages us to intentionally increase our failure rate, go out and hear “no” more often. When we overcome our fear of hearing “no,” things happen, and opportunities fall into our lap that might never have happened otherwise. Establishing “no goals” tends to drive our activity up, which creates more opportunities for us to hear a “yes.”
