As 2016 comes to a close and I begin to dream about 2017, I am so excited that Ed O'Keefe's book, "Time Collapsing: The New Art of Speed, Power, Money, and Meaning" has come into my life. And my hope is you'll walk away from this last interview of the year with a new perspective to make 2017 your best yet.
Not only is Ed a father of 7 (all under the age of 12), he's an incredibly successful entrepreneur. He went from completely broke to cracking the code to starting and taking multiple businesses from zero to multiple 7 and 8 figures. Over the years, with his passion for studying high performers and through his own business experience, he has distilled down the time-collapsing strategies that help people get from point A to point B with record speed.
In this interview, Ed talks about:
The holiday season can be stressful. The travel. The family. The shopping. All of it. But it doesn't have to be.
On this podcast, I talk about how to shift our mindset in a way that we can have the BEST holiday ever.
The song featured on the show is called, "Slow Burn" by Autograf.
What I know for sure is that what stands in the way between what we say we want and what we have is almost always fear. And the way we move past fear is through RISK. Looking back at my life, I realize now that the biggest risk I ever took was for my marriage. I fought for it. What it required was risking getting hurt again. Lots of people told me I was stupid for staying, but I knew what I wanted. It sure as hell wasn't easy, but it was worth it.
All the time, we hear people saying, "Be yourself!" or "Just be confident!"
But does that actually mean? And how do we do that?
Relationship coach and author Aaron Steinberg has the answer, and it's PRACTICING HONESTY.
"Where you feel like you would have to take a risk to communicate what you're thinking or what you're feeling, take that risk," says Aaron.
Also in this podcast, we talk about
-Why we stop being honest in the first place
-What happens when we tell little lies to ourselves and others
-Why "picking our battles" is bull shit
