Podcast Transcript: Welcome to Episode 9 of Grow For It! This is a podcast for small business owners, managers and other professionals. I’m Jim, and my goal is to work in the space between your ears – you know, on your mindset – to help you move closer toward your Vision.
Today’s episode focuses on Avoiding Negative Influences. These are the things with the power not only to limit your progress, but to potentially derail your ability to reach your full potential. Stick with me as I’m about to give you some insight in to a very personal part of my life. I hope you’ll be able to feel empowered, afterwards.
By the way, I want you to know I recently launched a radio show focused on small business and entrepreneurship. It’s called, “Let’s Get It Started!” You can listen to it Wednesday evenings at 7pmEST in the Louisville area, stream it live via the iHeartRadio app, or find the recorded broadcasts also available on my website.
If you’re an iTunes fan, go to the podcast section and type Jim Ray Consulting Services into the search bar. You’ll find this podcast along with my radio show broadcasts.
Before we begin our discussion about avoiding negative influences, let’s review where we’ve been. In Episode 8, we discussed the need to work ON your business, instead of IN your business. We unpacked the constant temptation to focus on the Tactics, when you really need to be working on the Strategy.
Today, we’re going to get a little personal, in an effort to reinforce your mindset and amp-up your performance.
If you’re ready, LET’S GROW FOR IT!
As a business leader, manager or entrepreneur, there’s a ton of responsibility on our shoulders. While we try to work ON our businesses, there’s also a need to work ON ourselves.
People are motivated to achieve for a variety of reasons. It’s a driving force high-achievers feel every day. That drive has the ability to stoke a fire inside that pushes us to go further and work longer in pursuit of our goals and those things that come along with it.
As positive as it sounds, that same fire has the potential to consume us and everything we’ve worked for. Read more
