Sarita Maybin: Ask for What You Want

Sarita Maybin: Ask for What You Want

March 14, 2019

About our Guest

Sarita Maybin is an international speaker and communications expert. She has worked with clients like Hewlett Packard, Kaiser Permanente, Los Angeles County, Department of Navy and the Las Vegas Convention Center and has spoken all over the world. In 2012 she was voted Top 5 Communication Speaker and has had the privilege of speaking on the TEDx stage. She’s also the author of If You Can’t Say Something Nice, What DO You Say? and an expert in confronting tough communication situations in a positive and fun way.

Episode Summary:

Today, we continue the Powerful Women Series in honor of Women's History Month. Our focus today is on the people pillar and how we communicate. We tackle the complex topic of speaking up when it  might not be comfortable and talk about the importance of finding a middle ground to say what needs to be said before things blow up. We discuss how to ask for what we want using the right language. This includes giving the other party a vote by using collaborative phrases and the power of positive communication phrases. This episode is full of practical tactics for both personal and professional communication.

CLIFF NOTES

  • It’s important to speak up and say what needs to be said.
  • Use phrases like, “I would appreciate” to make requests not demands.
  • We need to just ask for what we want. Use a phrase like, “would you be willing to?” Use collaborative phrases at home.
  • When giving feedback focus on the positive rather than the negative and use positive communication phrases like, “help me understand.”
  • 3 Clues that you should pick up the phone instead of email or text. Sensitive subject, conflict, or when there’s a back and forth.
  • Instead of a spellcheck do a “please and thank you check.”
  • The 3Ps by Dr. Martin Sullivan: Don't take things PERSONALLY. It's not PERMANENT. Don't let it ruin the big PICTURE.
  • We can use “if”, "as soon as" and "when" to set boundaries.

Mattie James: The Responsibility of Influence

March 7, 2019

About our Guest:

Mattie James began blogging about her favorite products and outfits in 2008. Five years later in 2010, blogging became her full-time job. In 2017, she began her Mattie James blog where she talks about beauty, life, motherhood, inspiration and more. She also creates courses and has worked with well known brands like TJ Maxx, State Farm, Olay, and many more. She is also the host of The Mattie James Show and the Mattie & Chris podcast.

Episode Summary:

March is Women's History Month or what I call the powerful woman month. This month I am highlighting some dynamic women that I really admire. Mattie James is a brand influencer and entrepreneur who I admire and am thrilled to have on the show. We have been supporting each other over social media and it's great to talk with her. One of the things we talk about is giving ourselves permission which was also the theme of The Bliss Project that I just attended over this past weekend.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Mattie is amazing at working with brands, but she also lives her life’s purpose with her work.  
  • She evolved from a fashion blogger to a mom who began sharing more aspects of her life. People cared more about her story, than just about what she was wearing.
  • For Mattie, everything is content as she authentically shares her life.
  • People want to make their lives better. If you have figured out a way to make your life better, people want to apply that to their lives.
  • To be successful, we have got to prioritize mindset. Our success mirrors our personal development.
  • Assuming that something good is out of reach is a reflection of our mindset.
  • Get to the reason why you want to be successful and ask who you want to help and who you want to make better.

Greatness Requires You to Expect Resistance

Greatness Requires You to Expect Resistance

February 21, 2019

Episode Summary:

I realized as I was finishing up the Results Not Resolutions series, that I didn't mention the best part to all of this. When you start shifting your focus to get to your next level of greatness, you can start to experience things that make you feel like all hell is breaking loose. It doesn't matter how pumped you are about setting goals and getting results, you still have to be prepared for the fact that life is still going to happen.

Resistance will still surface in spite of your best efforts. We will all find ourselves coming to a fork in the road about whether we keep going or whether we give up. Butting up against resistance is why many of us fall away from our goals year after year. Today, I'm going to talk about resistance and how to work through it.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Resistance is a force that acts to stop the progress of something or make it slower.
  • All materials naturally contain resistance to the flow of electric current. We are all experiencing some level of resistance at any given moment.
  • Expect resistance, because no one is immune to it. Even people who look like they are doing great could be going through difficult times.
  • When we make plans and goals, we expect the vision we have for them.
  • Set yourself up to have a contingency plan to navigate through the seasons of resistance.
  • We have the power to reframe this resistance to be for us not against us.
  • Resistance is here to reveal opportunities for growth.

Quotes from the show:

"When you start shifting your focus to get to your next level of greatness, you can start to experience things that make you feel like all hell is breaking loose.” - Patrice Washington

"Set yourself up to become a person that understands that resistance is inevitable and have a contingency plan in place for how you navigate and maneuver through seasons of resistance.” - Patrice Washington

"I'm reaching for my next level of greatness, so I know that there's going to be some level of resistance on the journey.” - Patrice Washington

"For every measure of resistance you face, release a volt that can help you push through.” - Patrice Washington

"You have to decide that being stuck and letting the resistance overwhelm you is not an option.” - Patrice Washington

"Resistance is here to reveal opportunities for growth.” - Patrice Washington

"Resistance is here in order to help us create a plan or a path to overcome something similar next time.” - Patrice Washington

"Expect resistance. No one is immune to resistance.” - Patrice Washington  

"We have the power to reframe this resistance to be for us not against us.” - Patrice Washington

“You get to reframe your resistance and make it about how you release your voltage how you release your power.” - Patrice Washington

“You do not embrace resilience without having been through resistance. The definition of resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties.” - Patrice Washington

Anna Lozano and Lindy Sood: Love Powered: Love Yourself First

Anna Lozano and Lindy Sood: Love Powered: Love Yourself First

February 14, 2019

About our Guests:

Anna Lozano and Lindy Sood are two entrepreneurs who created a business together based on the power of affirmations. They discovered that tapping into their own gifts has been a powerful transformation too. They wanted to share this with their children and Love Powered Co was created. It is their goal to empower the next generations of mindful leaders with conscious products curated for the modern family.

Episode Summary:

Anna and Lindy create affirmation cards with three affirmations and a power phrase. The original intent was enabling their kids to understand how the words connect. They found this method is helpful for everyone. They use words like “I am” to help tap into the power within us. This is a powerful episode that highlights how we can all use reminders to tap into our own greatness and super powers.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Our subconscious uses affirmations to tell ourselves to be better or believe in a powerful statement.
  • Understanding how the words in our affirmations connect is helpful to everybody.
  • Having powerful positive reminders is necessary to prevent us from self-sabotaging.
  • Curiosity is a power not a negative. There is nothing wrong with being inquisitive.
  • The affirmation cards for kids were designed to get them away from a screen and help them connect on a deeper level.
  • Everyone is encouraged to connect with their higher selves.
  • The way we speak about ourselves creates our reality. I am is the most powerful way to begin a phrase.

Quotes from the show:

“This company has taken flight because it was created with so much passion and intention behind it.” - Anna Lozano

"The more that we focus on feeling good the easier life will be." - Anna Lozano

“Benefits we were getting from our affirmation practices that we were doing in our own homes were really transformative for our lives.” - Lindy Sood

“The more we work on ourselves the better it is for our kids, because we are leading by example.” - Lindy Sood

“What you put after the words ‘I am’ shapes your reality.” - Anna & Lindy

“We have the power to shift our beliefs.” - Patrice Washington

“There is nothing wrong with getting the support you need and asking the questions that you want to know.” - Patrice Washington

“We are great. We are enough. We are more than whole.” - Patrice Washington

"In this journey called life as we're striving to be better at whatever we do, we sometimes forget to tell ourselves the right things.” - Patrice Washington

Glen Henry: 5 Steps to Releasing Your Genius

Glen Henry: 5 Steps to Releasing Your Genius

January 31, 2019

About our Guest:

Glen Henry is a musician turned YouTube sensation. His Beleaf in Fatherhood channel has surpassed 100K subscribers. He also has a website and podcast of the same name. He is the speaker behind the impactful TED Talk, What I've Learned About Parenting as a Stay-at-home Dad, as well as, the author of It’s Bedtime Now. This father of three, soon to be four, wants to create a positive impact on both fathers and mothers. His popularity is growing, and he can be seen everywhere including on a new Pamper’s commercial with singer, John Legend.  

Episode Summary:

I am so excited to have Glen on the show today. We talk about how Glen used his honest approach to fatherhood to transition from music to building an audience and becoming a YouTube sensation. He talks about the 5 steps to releasing genius. If you are feeling stuck or blame your lack of success on someone else, pay special attention to whether you could be missing a key step in releasing your genius and creativity.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Glen knew the Internet would be the right platform to reach his audience. He made a 15-year plan and achieved those goals in two years.
  • The first stage that you're genius stands on is an idea. When we have an idea it's already complete in our minds.
  • The second stage is releasing your idea to your ability. This is where your brain and your ability form a relationship of trust.
  • The third stage is where you have started an idea, and you have shared it with a small audience of one like a trusted friend to get feedback.
  • The fourth stage is your audience. This is when people actually get use out of what you have created.
  • The fifth stage is virality. This is when people who aren't your target audience get attached to your work. This is where we receive the most criticism and pick up the biggest amount of growth.

Quotes from the show:

"I'm not responsible for my wife’s lack of vision, I'm responsible for manifesting something she can believe in." - Glen Henry

“Your brain and your ability have to form a relationship together where your brain trusts your ability, and your ability trusts that it's not too overwhelming.” - Glen Henry

“Sometimes we trust our friends more than we trust our ability. Depending on what happens in this relationship can make or break our genius.” - Glen Henry

“You have to manifest your dreams, so that people can see them, feel them, and touch them.” - Glen Henry

“When we release our art to our audience it is no longer ours. They take it and make it whatever they want it to be.” - Glen Henry

“Virality is what our audience does with what we create.” - Glen Henry

“How many of us do not have the results we desire because we skip stages?” - Patrice Washington

"Sometimes we get so caught up in perfectionism that we prevent other people from the blessing. Sometimes you just have to release the genius.” - Patrice Washington  

"At some point you have to get out of the ability stage. What I've learned is to stop making things harder than they have to be.” - Patrice Washington

Success is when you trust yourself and are able to provide that trust.

  • High School music wasn't just about Monique being an actor or an artist. It was about being positioned to penetrate the hearts of young people.
  • Define satisfaction means being dissatisfied with the situation because you are out of alignment. Sometimes we need to give ourselves space to change the things that we are not happy with.
  • To really change you have to get to a point where you are uncomfortable.
  • You can't change without honesty and really looking and assessing the situation and breaking things down.
  • Giving is not meant to be depleting. It's important to set healthy boundaries.
  • It’s important to take care of yourself. Self care is very important.

Crystal Escobar: No More Shoulds

Crystal Escobar: No More Shoulds

January 17, 2019

About our Guest:

Crystal Escobar is a mother, author, entrepreneur, blogger, and podcaster and a wannabe balanced mom. When Crystal first became a mom she wondered if she could be there for her kids and be there for herself. She started exploring her quest for balance in 2010 and now she helps other moms find purpose and balance. She now juggles her blog, podcast, business, and four kids, sharing her journey along the way.

Episode Summary:

This is Part 3 of our Results NOT Resolutions series. Today, I am joined by Crystal Escobar an author and entrepreneur who says, "we cannot live our life based on shoulds." Today's focus is on the space pillar which is all about setting up your life to support you. We talk about achieving balance and when to let things go. We talk about how it is okay to ask for help and how creating a list with 30-minute intervals can help get things done and about why it’s critical to let things go and not worry about the expectations of others.

CLIFF NOTES

  • Don't live your life based on “shoulds” and trying to manage the expectations of others.
  • Harmony can be an upgrade to balance. It's okay to have your own goals and aspirations and try to achieve balance in your life.
  • Sometimes you have to let expectations go and accept that having kids means that sometimes your house will be messy and unorganized.
  • Be organized and set up your workspace, so that you can focus on what you're doing and not be distracted by clutter around you.
  • Multitasking and trying to do more than one project at a time will actually cost you time in the long run.
  • To be productive, create a 30-minute list. List things you need to get done and use a timer to work on each item.
  • It’s okay to set time aside for yourself and your work and get help or outsource some of the household stuff.

Quotes from the show:

“Include your kids in what you're working on so they understand what's possible.” - Crystal Escobar

“Balance to me is more about a state of mind. It's not about all the things I can get done in one day.” - Crystal Escobar

“When you're trying to be creative you have to clear the clutter.” - Crystal Escobar

“We're not as effective as we think we are when we're doing two or more things at once.” - Crystal Escobar

Use a timer when you're organizing and then tell yourself "It's time to move on." - Crystal Escobar

“Become okay with B- work in certain areas.” - Patrice Washington

“When your space is in order it teaches others how to treat you.” - Patrice Washington

“Maybe you can't have a balanced day, but you can plan for a balanced week.” - Crystal Escobar

“Get rid of the "shoulds" in your life. Don't beat yourself up about what you think you should be doing.” - Crystal Escobar

“We have to let go of the expectations we believe others may have of us, because we're only frustrating ourselves.” - Patrice Washington

Nehemiah Davis: Create Your Circle of Greatness

Nehemiah Davis: Create Your Circle of Greatness

January 10, 2019

Nehemiah Davis is a true example of what one can achieve if they try. At the age of 31, he is an award-winning author, entrepreneur and philanthropist. He was raised by his mother and grandmother, and even though the odds may have been against him, he started his first business at age 21 and started giving back almost immediately. He now runs three businesses and the Nehemiah Davis Foundation which helps disadvantaged youth, feeds the homeless in Philadelphia, and helps people all around the world.

Episode Summary:

It's time for part two of the Results NOT Resolutions series. Nehemiah Davis is here to talk about how every one of us deserves our own circle of greatness. We talk about how Nehemiah and I met. Nehemiah shares what the circle of greatness is. He also talks about seeking counsel from mentors who have done what you want to do and expanding your mind. He shares his story and how changing your mindset can change your life. We also talk about entrepreneurship, giving back, finding mentors, and having a network.  

CLIFF NOTES

  • An Instagram profile and a chance meeting on the street led to Nehemiah being able to propose on the Steve Harvey show thanks to Patrice. That is the power of relationships and not looking for anything in return.
  • We are blessed to be a blessing by creating connections for people and not expecting anything in return.
  • The circle of greatness is a community that connects people that can help support one another. It's great when one person creates connections, but it's even greater when it's an entire community creating connections.
  • Keeping resources in the circle and having people smarter and sharper than you in your circle is the key to success.
  • It's important to seek wise advice and counsel from people who have done it. If you want to become a millionaire, learn from a millionaire.
  • Now is the best time to get into entrepreneurship and create your wealth.
  • Nehemiah teaches kids how to be entrepreneurs and create their own jobs. It’s so important to learn the mindset.

Quotes from the show:

“Stop doing a million things a few times and getting upset about the results.” - Patrice Washington

Finding a mentor is the fast track to your success formula. - Nehemiah Davis

“Your Circle of Greatness is created by connecting people who can compliment you in your growth.” - Nehemiah Davis

“You only grow to the extent of those that are around you.” - Nehemiah Davis

“The moment you put in your mind it won't work, it won't work.” - Nehemiah Davis
