“Change Your Relationship With Stress” with Scott Halford

Author Scott Halford says how you look at something can predict how your body responds to it. If you have a big proposal coming up and “sigh,” that’s an indication you’re telling yourself, “This sucks and I don’t want to do it.” But if you have a “bring it on!” attitude it can be very energizing. You will begin to have a different relationship with the things that stress you out. Your mindset does matter. You’re feeding your brain either with a positive or negative message. Your brain is going to respond to that priming, and you will act accordingly.

“You Are The One” with Kute Blackson

So what are you waiting for?

For someone to save you? If so, you’re not alone. But it’s not going to happen. Your parents won’t rescue you. Your friends won’t carry you. No one’s coming. Know why? Everything you are seeking is within you already. Because you’re already here. You. Are. The. ONE.

On today’s show, Dave recaps episodes 566-569 where transformational speaker Kute Blackson shares inspiring, life-changing lessons from his book, “You Are The One: A Bold Adventure in Finding Purpose, Discovering the Real You, and Loving Fully.”

“Love Now” with Kute Blackson

Kute Blackson reveals the real purpose and power behind everything we do…love. But how do we bring love and peace in the world if there’s no love and peace in ourselves? How do we bring love and community in the world if there’s no love in our hearts for ourselves? At the end of our lives, everything boils down to this: did you love fully or did you spend your life holding back?

Here’s the bottom line: THIS is the moment is all we have. This is it. Every single second of our life is the moment you’ve been waiting for, and every moment of your life is an opportunity to love.

“The Master Addiction” with Kute Blackson

Kute Blackson says one of the things we have to give up to avoid suffering and be truly free is our need for control. We have to begin to distinguish the things we can change from those we cannot, and stop trying to control the things we can’t. All of our suffering in life comes from what worrying and working to fix what we have no power over.

What is in our control is our actions and thoughts. We can control ourselves.

“Lose Your Mind” with Kute Blackson

Kute Blackson says our mind is constantly going. We have 65,000-75,000 thoughts a day. It’s a constant person inside of us saying, “Hey, don’t do that,” “Do that,” “Eat that ice cream,” “What’s wrong with you?” “You’re not good enough.” “Oh my God, you’re so _____!”

Our mind is programmed and conditioned from childhood, and many of the thoughts we’re thinking are not even ours, they’ve been passed down to us from generation to generation, and we’re just playing them out daily. But just because the thought is in your mind it doesn’t mean it’s real or a fact. We must realize that it’s not the thoughts that are important but your relationship with your thoughts. The mind is an amazing salesperson, and we must start to question and not just buy what our mind is selling us. Kute teaches us how to decipher and stop buying fake thoughts believing they’re real.

“You. Are. The. One.” with Kute Blackson

Kute Blackson’s message is one we all need to hear. When you look at the world today, with all the craziness going on, we must acknowledge that the Government is not going to save you, your parents are not going to save you, your friends are not going to carry you forever. Bottom line: if it’s going to be…it’s going to be us. When you make that mental shift and recognize that no one owes you anything, it frees you up to stop looking outside of yourself to be saved or rescued, and it forces you to take radical responsibility for yourself and your own life in a way you’ve never done before.

“The Miracle Morning For Salespeople” with Ryan Snow

There are countless books written for salespeople about various sales techniques. Most salespeople use these techniques daily, yet the majority still fail to achieve the results they want. So, what is the difference between "average" performers and the top 1% in your company or industry? The more you study the world’s top salespeople, in any industry, the more you realize that their success is a result of who they are more than merely what they do. Thus, logic would have it that if you want to take your SALES to the next level, you must first figure out how to take your SELF to the next level (because it only happens in that order).

Today, Dave recaps episodes 561-564 where Ryan Snow shares tips from his book, “The Miracle Morning for Salespeople: The Fastest Way to Take Your SELF and Your SALES to the Next Level.”

“Sales Is An Energy Sport” with Ryan Snow

Ryan Snow says what you eat, how you exercise, and your mental energy has a tremendous impact on your sales and business. Ryan says when it comes to sales, energy transfers. So the energy we bring to the table is what we’re going to see in our clients.

Also, we live in a results-driven society. But sales can be a long and grueling process, so there will be times we don’t immediately see the results of our labor. So it's important to have the stamina to keep pushing forward until we see the results.

On today’s show, Ryan gives us some simple tips to increase energy to grow your business.

“Managing Your Time and Money” with Ryan Snow

Ryan Snow talks about the importance managing time and money, and how they impact our ability to become successful in sales and business.

There are many things we come into contact with in business that we can't control. And when we encounter one of those situations, we have two options: either blame all the outside forces or take responsibility for ourselves and our business.

Ryan says, when we start in business, we tend to have a lot more time than money. And it’s easy to waste time when we have a lot of it. So we have to become efficient at managing our time. As our business grows, we have less and less time, but more and more money. So there’s a shift that takes place, and we have to master managing our time and money, leveraging both to make our business grow.

“A Powerful Morning Routine” with Ryan Snow

Ryan Snow talks about The S.A.V.E.R.S. routine and how it can help grow your business. It’s an acronym that stands for Silence, Affirmations, Visualizations, Exercise, Reading, and Scribing. How do salespeople use these strategies? Ryan says we attract the people we become. So if we want to have Level Ten clients, we do that by becoming Level Ten people. Better sales means becoming a better version of yourself, and that comes through practicing a powerful morning routine.
