What I Learned From Hercules…well…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What I Learned From Hercules (well, the actor who played him)…aka. Kevin Sorbo?

During our last interview Kevin said the following in relation to a question about how to take your career, and life, to the next level:

“A lot of the time the things that are holding you back are the people you keep company with. Get away from the people that are negative. Surround yourself with people who are positive, who are like-minded, who encourage you, that push you…”

Kevin went on to explain the impact this had on his life and how it ultimately led to him landing the Hercules role.

Like Kevin, once I too started getting away from some of the negative people in my life, things began to change almost immediately.

The question becomes: Have you done an inventory on the people you spend the most time with and if you don’t like the results, are you willing to make some tough adjustments?

Until then, here’s to your greater success 🙂

What I Learned From T. Harv Eker

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What I learned from T. Harv Eker during our interview?

One of the key things that Harv said that stuck with me is that you need to be solving problems rather than looking for opportunity.

From my perspective, the question becomes:

Are you looking to add value or are you looking to find business?

Are you helping people solve what is keeping them up at night or are hoping to increase your cash flow while decreasing yours?

When you solve someone’s problem, you immediately become more valuable to them.

What I Learned From Mark Victor Hansen

I recently got to spend some time with Chicken Soup for the Soul Co-Creator, Mark Victor Hansen.

During our time, I asked Mark one habit a person can act on to take their career to the next level.

Mark’s response, “I would ask everyone to read self-help action books, and biographies and autobiographies of people who overcame the odds.”

I didn’t read my first book until I was 27 years of age, and since that time I have learned that each minute I have invested (in time) into feeding my mind has been returned itself many, many times over.

The question though is, how does one decide what to read, watch or listen to first?

I asked that same question to bestselling author Susan Manion MacDonald years back, after she was able to expand her mind enough in two months to put her cancer into complete remission (with just those two months left to live).

Her reply was essentially, “What I did was asked the people who I knew were reading, (watching or listening) the right things, what I should feed my mind first. When the same answer came back multiple times, that’s what I read (watched or listened to) first.”

Having this answer, I’d love to ask – what will you read, watch or listen to next? Perhaps it’s time to see which books, TED Talks or Shows have impacted the most lives, and dive in.

Until then, here’s to your success, Corey

What I Learned From Bif Naked…

Today’s a Great Day to Make it a Great Day!

Last month I had the opportunity to sit with Music Icon (and now Harper Collins Author) Bif Naked.
During our conversation Bif shared the following…
“You can totally reinvent yourself in your 40’s, 50’s and beyond.”
When I was younger I was under the impression that you had to achieve your dreams by a certain age. I fully believed it. Thankfully, many people proved otherwise.
First, I heard the story that Colonel Sanders started Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) at age 65.
I then listened as George Foreman shared the story of winning the world championship at aged 45 years and in the process became the oldest fighter ever to win the World Championship in boxing.

Next, on our show, Jack Canfield shared his experience of co-creating the Chicken Soup for the Soul Book Series (now over 500 million copies in print) in his late 40’s.

More recently, we had the late Wayne Dyer’s daughter Skye Dyer on our radio show and we discussed Louise Hay launching the popular Hay House company in her 60’s, that has impacted so many people in such a profound way, and even the legacy her father Wayne was still creating well into his 70’s (and is still creating to this day).

And so, I have been a believer that you can begin at any age (to create your legacy) and/or reinvent yourself, BUT Bif Naked, just last month, reminded me of this and therefore helped me re-learn it yet again. So thank you Bif for demonstrating that regardless of our age, we get to decide what’s on the next page

So, I guess the questions become: Do you need to reinvent yourself as we make our way toward a New Year? Are you ready to do so? Do you have a plan in place for reinvention? Do you believe you can do it? If a reinvention is not what you ned, how prepared are you to have a banner year personally and/or professionally?

If planning for 2017 is your game (whether reinvention or simply kicking off the year in a big way) and you want ideas to get the juices flowing (or to learn short-cups from the best of the best), feel free to check out our show (or subscribe) at the iTunes page below and learn exclusive insight / wisdom from some of the greatest thought leaders in the world with a quick click and a listen (perhaps you can turn your car into a mobile library, as Brian Tracy suggested, and listen to an episode each day on your way to or from work):
