Lessons - The Influence of Women's Speech on Language Evolution | Valerie Fridland, Sociolinguist, and Author

➡️ Like The Podcast? Leave A Rating: https://ratethispodcast.com/successstoryIn this episode of "Success Story: Lessons," we'll speak to Valerie Fridland, Professor at University of Nevada, Reno. We delve into the evolution of language, focusing on how historically suppressed women's voices have paradoxically set the precedent for future speech patterns in men.• The Influence of Women in Language Evolution: Valerie Fridland explores how women, often in the role of homemakers and primary caregivers, have historically led language changes. This phenomenon, termed "intimate diversification," demonstrates how children initially adopt speech features from their mothers, influencing language trends across generations.• Leapfrogging in Speech Patterns: Fridland discusses the concept of 'leapfrogging', where women are typically a generation ahead in adopting speech features. These changes are then passed down to their children, and eventually, men catch up, establishing new linguistic norms.• Gendered Speech Features: The conversation also touches on how certain speech features become gender-specific. Fridland explains how sociocultural factors influence these trends, leading to variations in speech adopted by men and women.• Sociocultural Dynamics in Language: The discussion further delves into how ethnic and cultural backgrounds shape speech patterns, particularly among young men, influenced by a desire for solidarity and group identity.➡️ Show Linkshttps://successstorypodcast.comYouTube: https://youtu.be/BfkjIlAjha4Apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/success-story-with-scott-d-clary/id1484783544Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/7iVUYI1XzbKPYKiS4HAltfhttps://twitter.com/FridlandValerie/➡️ Watch the Podcast On Youtubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/scottdclaryOur Sponsors:* Check out HelloFresh: http://hellofresh.com* Check out Justin Wine and use my code SUCCESS15 for a great deal: https://www.justinwine.com/* Check out Miro: https://miro.com/Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Lessons - Why You Can't Learn From Your Mistakes (Hindsight Bias)

In this Lessons episode, we dissect the intriguing concept of "Hindsight Bias" — the tendency to believe, after an event has occurred, that we would have predicted or expected it. This cognitive distortion affects various aspects of our lives, from personal decisions to societal judgments. Let's unravel the facets of hindsight bias and discover ways to counteract its pitfalls.• The Hindsight Illusion: A dive into the story of a failed relationship that exemplifies how we reimagine past events to fit our present understanding.• Historical Recognitions: Even ancient philosophers like Seneca, Confucius, and teachings from Buddhism touched upon the essence of hindsight bias without naming it.• Societal Implications: Hindsight bias isn't just personal; it affects our legal system, business strategies, and societal narratives. Its influence is pervasive, from investors regretting not choosing the "obvious" stock to doctors feeling a diagnosis should have been clearer.• Countering Hindsight Bias: Strategies ranging from envisioning multiple histories, embracing a beginner's mindset, focusing on the decision-making process, reframing disappointments, documenting thoughts, seeking diverse perspectives, to rigorously assessing decisions based on processes and not just outcomes.• The Hindsight Horizon: A concept that captures how far we can objectively see into the past. Emphasizes the role of habits, behaviors, and practices that can either obscure or clarify our hindsight vision.Our Sponsors:* Check out Factor 75: https://www.factor75.com/* Check out HelloFresh: http://hellofresh.com* Check out Justin Wine and use my code SUCCESS15 for a great deal: https://www.justinwine.com/* Check out Miro: https://miro.com/Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Lessons: Why You Need Ruthless Prioritization With Your Business | Marc Randolph, Co-Founder of Netflix

➡️ Like The Podcast? Leave A Rating: https://ratethispodcast.com/successstoryThis episode of "Success Story: Lessons" features Marc Randolph, co-founder and first CEO of Netflix. He shares insights on the early stages of building Netflix based on quick, low-cost experimentation. Here are the key takeaways:• Iteration Mindset: Marc started with the vision of providing online movie rentals, but emphasizes beginning with small, incremental tests rather than overplanning. He advises trying lots of quick experiments and being willing to throw out anything that doesn't work.• Customer Discovery: Instead of making assumptions about customer needs, Marc speaks directly with prospective users to validate ideas. He highlights the importance of authentic customer feedback, even if it means changing directions.• Ruthless Prioritization: Marc suggests identifying the single riskiest assumption in an idea that must be tested first. Focus on quickly testing just that key element before over-engineering a complex product.• Low-Fidelity Prototyping: He used the simplest, fastest, cheapest tactics possible to test the Netflix concept, such as manually mailing DVDs to himself. Marc advises avoiding overproduction early on.• Willingness to Pivot: Once you start getting real customer data, you'll likely need to modify your idea. Marc emphasizes being flexible and pivoting based on experiment results.• Persistence Despite Failure: Marc notes most initial ideas won't work. Success comes from relentlessly trying experiments until finding something that resonates.➡️ Show Linkshttps://successstorypodcast.comYouTube: https://youtu.be/56MoLUKPJDsPodcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/success-story-with-scott-d-clary/id1484783544?i=1000571022992➡️ Watch the Podcast On Youtubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/scottdclaryOur Sponsors:* Check out Factor: http://www.factor75.com* Check out Justin Wine and use my code SUCCESS15 for a great deal: https://www.justinwine.com/Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Lessons - Cracking The Leadership Code | Alain Hunkins, Leadership Coach, Speaker and Author

➡️ Like The Podcast? Leave A Rating: https://ratethispodcast.com/successstoryIn this episode of "Success Story: Lessons," we dive into insights from leadership coach Alain Hunkins on driving change and managing up. Alain emphasizes that lasting change requires leaders to create a sense of urgency and self-awareness. Without a "wake up call," people tend to stick with what's comfortable.Alain outlines tactics for managing up the chain of command, which centers on aligning with superiors' goals. He advises positioning ideas as helping leadership accomplish their vision. This takes empathy, building credibility over time, and artful framing.We also get Alain's wisdom on his "three C's" of leadership: connection, communication and collaboration. He boils down that connection means showing people you care through empathy and reliability. Communication requires confirming understanding, not just stating ideas. And collaboration happens by meeting people's core needs - safety, energy, purpose and autonomy.➡️ Show Linkshttps://successstorypodcast.comYouTube: https://youtu.be/Z7qxvaenCIUPodcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/success-story-with-scott-d-clary/id1484783544?i=1000479531305➡️ Watch the Podcast On Youtubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/scottdclaryAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Today, Grant unpacks his signature concept - The 10x Rule.The 10x Rule, as Grant explains, is not merely a strategy but a lifestyle. He identifies four levels of action: inaction, retreat, average, and 10x action. Most people, he argues, oscillate between the first three levels that yield little satisfaction and success, but it's the 10x action that propels significant change.This episode emphasizes two critical elements: courage and massive action. Grant argues that 'average' action is the most detrimental, as it leads to a cycle of unfulfilling mediocrity. He suggests breaking free from average and embracing the 10x Rule by adopting risk-taking behaviors and a mindset of wealth creation.He draws on Elon Musk's work ethic as an example of the 10x Rule, highlighting the importance of risk-taking, big thinking, and unwavering dedication to massive action. Through the 10x Rule, Grant invites everyone to step out of their comfort zone and achieve extraordinary success.➡️ Show Linkshttps://successstorypodcast.comYouTube: https://youtu.be/ayiBhmT4PCAPodcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/success-story-with-scott-d-clary/id1484783544?i=1000475270739➡️ Watch the Podcast On Youtubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/scottdclaryAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

The conversation revolved around three truths essential to a fulfilled life: first, clarity on what you want; second, understanding the path to get it; and finally, learning to bask in the joy of achieving it. Jack wasn't shy about his thoughts on our education system, pointing out that it doesn't really equip us for success in the real world, but rather preps us for an employee mindset, not an entrepreneurial one.In our chat, Jack also introduced us to his "Success Principles Workbook," a handy guide that captures 17 key life principles from his previous best-seller. The first lesson - accepting 100% responsibility for your life - struck a chord, especially in these times of COVID-19 uncertainty.
