JumpStart - HTWFAIP 1 - Don’t Criticize, Condemn, or Complain

You need to master this skill!

 

It’s the most valuable skill a human being can possess and yet it’s not taught in any school.

 

It’s the key skill behind all of your successes (and failures).

 

And, over the next 10 days we’re going to unpack how to master this and other important skills as we discuss what I consider to be the most influential self-help book of all time: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie:

 

Have you ever noticed:

 

  • How Dale Carnegie’s first principle is also the core principle of my own best-selling book?
  • That some people are just able to make people feel good and agreeable?
  • How some people have an innate appeal other people seek out?

 

Let’s crack open this life-changing book and talk about how you can begin to apply the first and most basic principle >>>

JumpStart - The Oatmeal Dove Paradox

JumpStart - The Oatmeal Dove Paradox

July 29, 2021

Yesterday I concluded my most recent speaking trip by going outside to have breakfast and enjoy yet another gorgeous Phoenix sunrise.

It was early morning and I was primed for a good day when things suddenly took a turn and I was left with making a choice, one that changed the morning and bolstered my whole outlook.

In this JumpStart learn, 

  • How to experience irritation and let it pass
  • What lies behind new choices
  • The universal energy of love that’s waiting for you when you make new choices

Let me share with you the “Oatmeal / Dove” Paradox >>>

JumpStart - Your Mental Inch

JumpStart - Your Mental Inch

July 27, 2021

We all experience challenging situations.

But when we begin to paint ourselves as a victim in any situation, we lose our ability to improve it.

It’s as if our own thoughts are conspiring to make things worse.

In this JumpStart learn:

  • How to mentally prepare yourself for difficult people and situations
  • Why the first mental inch is the most important
  • How to keep your calm in challenging situations

Remember, once you’ve given an inch the next inch is much easier and before you know what you’ve traveled a long way down the road you never would’ve chosen >>>

Jumpstart - Nothing but home runs

Jumpstart - Nothing but home runs

July 21, 2021

Yesterday I sat down to meditate at the big community park here in Key Largo.

Afterward, I took a little walk around the park and discovered an old man on one of the baseball fields tossing up a softball, hitting a home run, and then running the bases.

But there’s more to this story inspiring story:

  • Discover how this man (out of shape and well into his sixties) consistently hit home runs over and over
  • Decide how to keep score such that you’re always winning
  • Learn why it’s never too late to start hitting home runs

This is such a touching and motivating example of “dance like no one is watching” >>>

  • Why you should “call an audible” on your negative thoughts and then argue them into submission

Jumpstart - The “Other” Shift

Jumpstart - The “Other” Shift

July 19, 2021

The movie “The Big Short” is a great explanation of the housing collapse of ‘08 and the powerful ensemble cast in the movie are excellent.

In one scene, Steve Carrell’s character enters a group therapy session late and begins addressing everyone assembled loudly talking over the man who was sharing something deeply personal.

In time, Carrell’s character heals from his grief over his brother’s suicide and his focus begins to shift from himself toward others.

It helps us all to remember that:

  • Self-obsessed people are hurting, not hateful
  • Saying “You first” in situations is an affirmation of mental health and maturity
  • Giving others the right of way can actually lead to greater abundance

Today, let’s honor Disney’s Chip and Dale by saying, “After you…” >>>

Jumpstart - A Little is Better Than a Lot

Jumpstart - A Little is Better Than a Lot

July 18, 2021

When I was a kid, I wanted to play the drums but my mother, however, insisted we all learn to play piano first before moving on to other instruments.

My teacher Miss Nell required a practice journal at each lesson -- I hated the piano and so I rarely practiced.

I decided to do a week’s worth of practice in one day pushing myself through 3 hours of clunky scales but rather than improving, I discovered:

  • This made me hate the piano even more
  • A little every day adds up to a lot more than a lot now and then
  • Little consistencies are the secret to great lives

Let’s talk about how to incorporate little things that improve your life into your day starting now >>>

Jumpstart - Anchors

Jumpstart - Anchors

July 15, 2021

One of my all-time favorite quotations is from the French poet Collete, “I lived a wonderful life, it’s too bad I didn’t realize it at the time.”

  • Do you ever long to go back and enjoy something now lost to you?
  • Do you feel like life is always pushing you forward with lots of stress and little joy?
  • Do you find yourself taking important people and moments for granted?

If you said “yes” to any of these questions, this JumpStart will help you begin to enjoy life more in the moment rather than as a hazy past memory.

You have a wonderful life; it’s time to start enjoying it now >>>

Jumpstart - Everybody’s a grape

Jumpstart - Everybody’s a grape

July 13, 2021

Remember the California Raisins?

They were claymation commercial characters promoting raisins from California to the world dancing to “Heard it through the grapevine.”

(Really great marketing if I remember it all these years, right?)

Well, raisins come from grapes and today I’m traveling to deliver a speech at a winery so I wanted to remind you of some important lessons we can learn from grapes:

  • Our options are ripe or rot (just like a grape)
  • You can choose who and what causes you to ripen (unlike a grape)
  • One thing determines 90% of who you are (and you can control it)

Begin now to consciously choose who are you are “ripening into” >>>
