Lies Run Sprints, While Truth's Run Marathons |David T.S. Wood

Humans are conditioned to lie. A recent study showed that the average person lies three times in a 10-minute conversation. Why do people lie? The truth is that people lie for many reasons. People lie to gain freedom, to fit in, to avoid embarrassment—more reasons than you can count.   Sometimes, telling the truth can be incredibly hurtful. Words delivered clumsily or in anger can make a lasting negative impact. Learning to tell the truth with compassion is difficult—but important. Why? David. T.S. Wood shares his thoughts in this episode of My Extra Mile. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Why humans are conditioned to lie How to tell the truth with compassion Why you should trust your gut feeling A challenge to clean up your act How do you tell the truth with compassion?   When you wield truth, it allows other people to be truthful around you. But it can be difficult to pull off elegantly and compassionately. David has friends who have awful body odor (it wasn’t for lack of resources). They didn't want to use deodorant because it can be harmful to your health. People talked about them behind their backs and it started to interfere with David’s relationship with them.   So, David started their conversation with: “Is this a good time to chat?” He warned them it might be a tough conversation and he wanted them to be prepared. His intention was to build a stronger relationship with them. If he didn’t care about the person or the outcome, it isn’t a compassionate truth.   David breaks a conversation down into these steps:   Enter a conversation with someone when you’re in a good headspace. Make sure the other person is in a place to receive whatever you have to say. Go into the conversation with an outcome in mind. Tell the truth with compassion.   Telling the truth isn’t about being angry. It’s not about you being right or wrong. If you want your words to change how people behave or you want to be understood, then angry words accomplish nothing. The other person closes down and there is no room for truth. Examine where you’re coming from. You need to wield truth with compassion and elevate yourself above the situation. Learn to trust your gut   When people aren’t being truthful, you feel it. You might not be able to pinpoint it, but you have a gut feeling that you’re being lied to. You HAVE to trust your gut and your subconscious mind. When people aren’t telling the whole truth, you lose respect for them and trust in them—and rightfully so.   The subconscious processes 4 billion pieces of information every second when our conscious mind only processes 2,000. When little kids don’t like someone, parents tend to poo-poo it and force them into situations they’re not comfortable with (like showing someone affection when they don’t want). When that happens, we lose the trust in ourselves to trust that little voice and trust our intuition. Why is living in a world of truth so powerful?   You gain respect, forge greater connections, and build self-confidence. You gain a deeper sense of self-trust. David has found that negative energy ends when you tell the truth. We all know what it feels like to own the truth. Sometimes it can be liberating and other times it’s awful. But when you accept responsibility for your mistakes and tell the truth—No matter how embarrassing it is—most people appreciate it and empathize with you.   Are there some conversations that you’re afraid to have? Are there areas where you’re exaggerating or embellishing? David challenges you to look at your life: Practice cleaning yourself up. Stop telling the white lies. Lead with intention and remember what you want the outcome to be. Make your conversations solution focused. Build toward telling the truth with compassion—all the time.

100% Trust 100% of the Time | David T.S. Wood

What would happen if you walked through the world with a deeper trust in yourself and a deeper trust in humanity? David lives by the principle of 100% trust 100% of the time. He’s learned that when trust is present things move faster, which is the premise of Stephen M.R. Covey’s book The Speed of Trust. This episode of My Extra Mile is David’s exploration into the topic of trust and how to build it into your life. He shows that ability to trust impacts your life positively. David shares some amazing stories in this episode—don’t miss it. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   The Speed of Trust by Stephen M.R. Covey David’s mantra: 100% trust 100% of the time If you want the world to trust you, you have to be trustworthy The concept of reconditioning your reticular activating system (RAS) 100% trust 100% of the time   David operates on the principle of 100% trust 100% of the time. David believes his life flows easily because he isn’t consumed with distrust. It affects his ability to connect when he first meets someone. People have a lot of fear with how they protect their world, which closes them off. Just because you were robbed once doesn’t mean it will happen again. It’s how you respond and adapt that matters. David chooses to avoid carrying paranoia and fear with him.   You don’t have to live in a world of distrust. David feels that feelings of guardedness and distrust attract exactly what you’re trying to protect yourself from. How does David trust 100% of people 100% of the time? David shares a few stories that demonstrate that when you treat people with trust, people become even more trustworthy. What happens when someone breaks your trust?   That doesn’t mean that you can’t listen to your intuition. Some things are necessary. But you don’t want your default mode to be distrustful. You don’t want to walk through the world projecting distrust. If someone breaks David’s trust, he’ll have a conversation with them. David truly believes that when he addresses someone, he’s teaching them how to treat him. He’s showing them that what they did doesn’t work for him and he allows them to start over. If people prove themselves to be untrustworthy in multiple situations, David is certainly more aware of it. If you want the world to trust you, you have to be trustworthy   If you want the world to trust you, you have to be trustworthy. Keep your word. Do what you say you’re going to do. Apologize for your mistakes—and be sincere. Tell the truth—not an adapted truth or an element of truth but the whole truth. When you break trust, clean it up in an authentic way. People will relate to you and understand. Live in a world where your word is your bond.   When we are trustworthy, we teach people to trust us more. David emphasizes that you shouldn’t wait for the world to show you it’s trustworthy before you become trustworthy. David’s personal experience is that people show up as trustworthy when you give them the benefit of the doubt. Recondition your reticular activating system (RAS)   The world is more beautiful with trust. Our ability to share trust attracts and brings so much back because of your capacity to be open. David’s predominant thought pattern is trust. So he’s always seeing reasons to trust more.   Have you come across someone who looks menacing or distrustful? Your reticular activating system (RAS) is likely conditioned to see through the filter of distrust. But you can recondition your RAS to choose to trust and see good.   Perhaps the kid on the street corner in a dark hoodie isn't going to rob someone, but they’re cold. Maybe they just had a fight and are covering up their emotions. Whatever we predominantly think about we see and notice in the world. We see the world as we are.   You can choose to be a more open, kind, loving  and trusting person. To hear all of David’s thoughts on the topic of building trust, listen to this episode of My Extra Mile. Resources & People Mentioned   The Speed of Trust by Stephen M.R. Covey Connect with David T.

How To "Authentically" Build a Thriving Social Media Following | Krystal Morrison | David T.S. Wood

How do you build an authentic social media following? Today’s guest on My Extra Mile, Krystal Morrison, shares her method for approaching social media. She shares the rituals that she implements each day, how she manages social media, and how she’s built a community. If you’re striving to cultivate a social media community—don’t miss this episode with David T.S. Wood. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   What made Krystal the woman she is today Why Krystal chose to embrace social media Why some people gain traction and others don’t How to bring genuineness to your social media Developing congruence between real life and your social media Modeling after—but not copying—people or brands you admire The daily rituals that Krystal embraces for success Setting boundaries with social media How Krystal constructs her Instagram posts How to grow your following organically and authentically   When you seem to be doing everything right, why isn’t your following growing? Krystal asks you to reflect: What were you feeling when you were posting? Were you having the worst day ever? When you aren’t in a good place, your posts won’t be well-received. There’s a larger energy at play.   A lot of people post something and don’t stick around to build community. Krystal posts to communicate and connect with people. The goal is to build relationships. To do that, her goal is to connect with 5–10 people a day. Another thing she recommends. Read your comments and respond to them authentically. More comments on your post helps the algorithm as well.   Krystal is genuine and truly desires to get to know people. She doesn’t see them as a target for her business. She always comes from a place of “they spoke to me” and “they’re human.” She’s hoping to bring some light into someone’s day. Listen to hear the method she uses to connect and build relationships. How to develop congruence between real life and your social media   If Krystal can’t show up authentically, she doesn’t. If she’s having a hard day, she just doesn’t log on. She gives herself permission to come back to the platform when she’s in a better place. Then maybe she’ll share the story in an inspiring or funny way. Because life isn’t perfect. But she wants to share what led to the bad day or what she got out of it. If someone comes to her page, she wants them to feel they got value out of the interaction. The rituals that Krystal embrace for success   Krystal has two children and when she wakes up to them, she’s engulfed in their world and their needs—just like any mother. So, she started getting up earlier to take 15 minutes to quiet her mind and meditate. She tries to take 5 minutes every day to write out what she appreciates and is grateful for—everything that feels good in her life today. What makes you feel light, fun, eager, and excited? She recommends doing that before you do anything else. It’s simple but it elevates her energy. How Krystal sets boundaries on social media   Krystal likes to implement a schedule, so she doesn’t hit a place of burnout. Krystal only works after she’s had an hour in the morning with her children. She also allocates 30 minutes to check her inbox. How many times do you login and get distracted? Don’t get stuck in the scroll-hole. She gets on, makes her post, and interacts with 10 other people.   It’s about being intentional with your time—not getting lost in the scroll. Krystal also turns her notifications completely off. The truth is, you have control over when you pick up your phone. Create control in your life and what you allow in your mind at that moment.   She notes that “How we’re taking care of ourselves is how we will show up in social media and our businesses.” If your social media feels flat, how can you connect more? How can you bring light and love into someone else’s day? Be a connector instead of just a poster. For the rest of her tips and tricks, listen to the whole episode!

There's Nothing "New" about being "The New Normal" | David T.S. Wood

Everyone’s heard the phrase “The New Normal” being tossed around recently. David T.S. Wood really dislikes the phrase. Why? The new normal is like saying that something shifted in the world and we’ve been handed only one option. In this episode of My Extra Mile, David explores the negative connotations of this phrase and shares his preferred definition. Don’t miss his inspiring take on the new normal.  You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Redefining the whole idea of “The new normal” Taking this opportunity to redesign your life Changing the lens, you view the world with Making your “normal” the opposite of normal Give the new normal a NEW definition   Returning to normal means going back to a status quo. David believes that one of the most dangerous things in humanity is complacency, apathy, and being in your “comfort zone.” It’s boring, predictable, and same-old-same-old. So, what if we have to adjust to a new way of behaving?   How does David process what’s going on? He never wants to be normal. He does well because he’s abnormal. He doesn’t play in the lines, he breaks the rules, he doesn’t do what everyone else is doing. The challenge with being different is that you will piss people off, you will stand out, and you will be a target. Take this opportunity to redesign your life   If your life was normal before, look at this situation as an opportunity to redesign your life in a more beautiful way. If you’ve lost your job and a few months of no income has put you in a scary financial situation, maybe it IS time for a new normal. Is that the way you want to live? How do you better prepare yourself for situations like this? Who do you have to become to earn more money?   When David started working, he had a job as a dishwasher at $4 an hour. But he wasn’t a normal dishwasher—he was exceptional. He was positive. He did his job well. He built relationships. He got a shot as a waiter which eventually led to him down the road to owning a restaurant. David projected an attractive energy and doors opened for him. Change the lens you view the world with   This pandemic is simply something we’re all dealing with. World war II was horrendous. Millions of people died. David looks at that scenario and says, “Look at our life today.” There’s a pandemic, but he points out that we can’t say it’s the worst thing humanity has ever had to survive. People are still thriving.   David emphasizes that “It does come down to the thoughts we’re willing to think and the lens that we’re willing to look through.” David understands that in this time millions of people are thriving, millions are stuck, and millions are playing into a victim mentality.   But it’s not just happening to you. It’s happening to the whole world. What can we learn? How do we thrive? How do we create a positive and beautiful lens? We have two choices: We can hate it or we can love the situation that we’re in. David points out that this situation allows us to experience things differently.  David’s “normal” is the opposite of normal   David encourages you to sit down and define what your normal is. Do you see low-energy words? Do they put you in a box? Does your definition put you in a victim mentality? Do your words shrink you down? Do they have negative connotations? Erase those words from your list of normal.   David emphasizes that the words you speak determine how you live your life. The words you speak determine who you are. The words you speak attract positivity or negativity. Look at your language around your new normal and make it positive. Say it with certainty and positivity. You are NOT a victim of a pandemic.   David has always seen himself as the master of his own fate. He can control what he does, what he thinks, and what he speaks into existence. How he lives and responds to what’s happening comes down to those key elements. If you were in a bad place before, this is the best time to change.   Eradicate the word normal from your vocabulary—or at the very least redefine it. Make it vibrant. Make it full of possibilities. Take responsibility for your actions and your choices and choose to respond differently.   Resources & People Mentioned   BOOK: Man’s Search for Meaning   Connect with David T. S.

4 Simple Steps That Will Radically Change Your Life | Shawn & Kari-Lyn Owen | David T.S. Wood

In this episode of My Extra Mile, Shawn and Kari-Lyn Owen share a philosophy you can embed in everyday decisions to move you forward in your life. It helps you view your setbacks and obstacles differently so that the biggest setbacks can be some of your greatest learning lessons. You can have the greatest why, but if you can’t identify and work through your obstacles, it’s far harder to reach your goals. They share the powerful framework that helped them start reaching their goals in 4 simple steps. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   The ‘WOOP’ principal that Shawn and Kari-Lyn live by How to identify and overcome obstacles How WOOP can be applied to simple and extraordinary goals How to recapture the art of dreaming The process of self-discovery to reach your inner struggles How to integrate this framework into your life How to start small and work your way to larger goals How to utilize this strategy with your family   ‘WOOP’ is a 4-step system created by Gabriele Oettingen that is professionally referred to as Mental Contrasting with Implementation Intentions (MCII). It’s a well-researched way to help YOU achieve your goals. How does it work?   W: What is your ultimate Wish? O: What is the Outcome of that wish? O: What are the Obstacles that stand in your way? P: What plan will you implement to overcome those obstacles?   Before implementing this system in their life, Shawn & Kari-Lyn never felt prepared for major obstacles. This was their missing piece.   Human beings tend to look at success stories and see the result. You don’t see all of the muck in the middle. Shawn points out that when you look at the obstacles you’ve overcome, that’s where the richness comes from. You don’t love it in the moment because you can’t see the end. But those obstacles are where the breakthroughs happen. He states that “You can’t create success without having some challenge along the way.” You must identify obstacles to overcome them   When you know the obstacles that could be in your path you can plan for them. Shawn and Kari-Lyn emphasize that you must have a strong enough desire to succeed. Working through the obstacles needs to feel worth it. If the outcome of your wish isn’t strong enough to overcome the obstacle, it won’t happen.   What does your wish look like? What will it feel like for yourself? Your family? Break the obstacles down into mini obstacles. Do you believe you can do this? Shawn and Kari-Lyn share the extraordinary goal that they’re working toward and how they break the process don’t. Listen to hear what their process looks like! Stop using external excuses to hide an internal struggle   Shawn believes that most people start with an external excuse such as “I don’t have enough time” or “I don’t have enough money.” But those external excuses always come down to an internal issue. Most core issues stem from a belief that you aren’t worthy or aren’t good enough. It takes a brave person to allow themselves to go to that level.   They emphasize that you need to look for patterns. When else do these excuses show up in your life? When has this happened in the past? Was there a life-defining moment in your childhood where your internal conversation became “I’m not good enough” or “I’m not lovable?” When you know the root cause you can acknowledge what’s happening and look at your behavior to decipher: Is this moving me towards my goal? Or away from my goal? Implement this strategy in everyday life   Just like anything else, incorporating this into your life takes practice. It’s just like an athletic coach who doesn’t start a beginner with something they’d expect an expert to do. Shawn suggests starting with something small. As you begin to reach those small goals, it motivates you to continue reaching towards the large goals. Look for evidence that this works with something simple. Get the little wins, build the muscle, and then aim for bigger goals.   Their final piece of advice? Whatever is happening, you can do one thing every day to push towards your goals.

How Lisa Wolny Turned Adversity and Despair into Prosperity and Joy | Lisa Wolny |David T.S. Wood

Lisa had a massive stroke at age 30. Her husband fought and overcame prostate cancer. Lisa’s daughter has struggled through debilitating mental health issues. Lisa Wolny has overcome a lot of tragedy in her life. She has a depth of courage and perseverance that most people don’t. But she feels that the last 10 years were the training ground for what will be the greatest build in her network marketing career. Listen to this episode of My Extra Mile with David T.S. Wood as they discuss her journey through life and network marketing. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Why Lisa got into network marketing What she learned before she was “all in” How to prepare to pivot and adjust Lisa’s secret weapon: The WGAS Factor How Lisa navigated her business’s sudden decline Why Lisa started teaching trainings on “How to Save Money” How her business carried her family forward How Lisa became a network marketer   Lisa hit rock bottom. After recovering from a stroke and trying to handle four children, Lisa was desperate for a solution for her health. Lisa was being heavily recruited to become a network marketer, but it wasn’t until she hit rock-bottom that she was ready to give it a shot. She needed flexibility and income, so why not? She understood the numbers quickly and thought “Who wouldn’t want to do this?”   David believes in the right vehicle at the right time with the right you. You have to be ready for it.   The product experience that she had is what changed her mind. She wanted to be a better version of herself. When she saw the numbers and paired it with her experience, she felt she had a responsibility to impact thousands of lives. She wanted to share the message with the world. So, she went all-in on network marketing. Network marketing is about pouring into other people   Lisa’s first year was all about herself. It was about getting her transformation down. But during that process, she enrolled a ton of people. She was all in—but not all-in to pouring into other people. She made $27,000 from home her first year while becoming the best version of herself physically.   Then she went to an event and started questioning, “How does this really work?” She figured out what she needed to do. It had to stop being about her and become about other people. The next year she made $133,000.   The next year her father-in-law passed away. Her mother-in-law has dementia, so they took her in. It was a huge transition. It was the first time she had to rely on residual income. It’s usually during a crisis that you realize the impact of that residual income.  When she was out of commission caring for her mother-in-law, her income didn’t drop.

Turn Your Obstacles and Challenges into Unlimited Success | Warren & Arlene Lance | David TS Wood

Warren and Arlene were drowning in debt before they got into network marketing. They were conventional business owners fighting to survive—but going out of business. Warren wouldn't allow himself to fail because he had a wife, family, and staff he was responsible for. He had to do whatever it took to survive. Listen to this episode of My Extra Mile with David T.S. Wood to hear more about their incredible journey as they transitioned from conventional business owners to successful network marketers. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Becoming a successful network marketer The concept of ready, fire, aim Network marketing requires flexibility Why network marketing is one of the highest-paid professions How Arlene’s mindset helped her overcome cancer The journey of network marketing opens up a world of opportunity Becoming a successful network marketer takes drive   Warren and Arlene have earned more than $10 million since starting network marketing. In the beginning, Warren got a $25 check. Then it grew to $150. Eventually, he was making around $3,000 a month doing something that didn’t feel like work. Arlene points out that “When you’re doing something that you’re passionate about and that you love, it never feels like you’re going to work.”   Warren is always working, but it feels like serving other people. But getting to that point requires effort. You have to put the time in to learn and grow. You have to be intentional and consistent. You have to make time for it. As you’re consistent, you evolve, and it becomes easier and easier. The concept of ready, fire, aim   The concept of “ready, fire, aim” is that you get ready and just dive in. You fire away while you’re refining your skills. You master the nuances as you go. So many people spend too much time getting ready to get ready and never pull the trigger. You don’t NEED all the answers to pull the trigger.   Your skillsets and marketing tools are constantly in flux. You’re always learning. But when you start impacting lives and feel the excitement of those people, it’s so easy to keep nurturing the business and watch it grow.   Warren points out that you can create residual income that can eventually replace your full-time income. Not only that, but the skills you develop, the conversations you have, and learning to listen can be taken outside of this profession. Why network marketing is one of the highest-paid professions   When you have someone try your products, you get 6% of the sale. If you have 100 people, you get $600. It seems insignificant for the effort. But what happens over time is that your network grows from 100 to 1,000 to 10,000 and it becomes significant. When people realize and capture the opportunity and believe they can do it, they become unstoppable. It’s all about building networks.   Warren has worked with and watched a massage therapist, a liquor distribution guy, and even a forklift driver begins to make 7 figures a year. What do they all have in common? What type of person should you look for? Who should you work with? Listen to hear Warren’s thoughts! How Arlene’s mindset helped her overcome cancer   Arlene was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer. Because Warren had made the shift to network marketing, he was able to be there and be her rock. He was able to be 100% present and not have to worry about missing work. It was a huge blessing for them.   When Arlene got diagnosed with cancer, she made a stance. She was going to be okay. It was challenging. There were moments where she was sad and afraid. She learned to allow herself to feel the fear and anxiety—but she wouldn’t allow herself to live there.   She emphasizes that you just have to make the choice that enough is enough. We all have life happen to us. Arlene learned to ask: “What is it that I’m meant to learn in that moment?” It’s critically important to be careful of the language that you put out—and the language that you allow in.   How does the journey of network marketing open up a world of opportunity? What kind of people do you find in the profession? How do the skills you learn translate into every area of your life? Warren and Arlene are full of incredible insight.

How to Elegantly Navigate ALL of Life’s Challenges |Tanya Kirkpatrick | David T.S. Wood

Many women are struggling with authenticity and transparency in a world that exerts pressure on them to be perfect. Women tend to get lost in their children and their spouses. When their kids are grown and out of the home, they feel they have nothing left to contribute. That it’s too late to transition. But according to Tanya Kirkpatrick, you can make this the best chapter of your life. Tanya is authentic, transparent, and passionate about coming alongside women and lifting them up. Don’t miss this insightful and encouraging episode of My Extra Mile.  You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   How to stop playing the comparison game How to forward-speak into your life Tanya’s experience as a professional network marketer How to pivot during the challenges everyone faces in life The big lessons Tanya’s learned about loving and growing people How to build the muscle of awareness Take responsibility for every choice that you make Steve Harvey’s “Take the lid off the jar” video How to stop playing the comparison game   Tanya loves to speak with women about setting intentions. What would it look like if you were to make some shifts in your life? What would be the qualities of a woman who sets those intentions?   She encourages women to write a top-ten list of their non-negotiables. That is who you want to be. It’s about becoming the person you most want to attract. Becoming that is falling in love with who you are and who you’re equipped to be. Tanya says the next step is to put your intentions on sticky notes around your mirror or somewhere where you see them day and night. Make them “I am” statements:   I am a woman who loves her body I am empowered to make good choices I am a woman who supports her family I am a beautiful individual   Do not settle. Once you settle, you continue to settle. It becomes your identity and you lose your vision for your future. Think of your authentic self. It’s the self that portrays love, kindness, compassion, and empathy. Tap into that part of yourselves and don’t give in to the negative voice you’re conditioned to believe. We hear everything that we speak out—so why not put the good stuff out into the universe? Do you SEE the people around you?   Tanya shares that she has an amazing cleaning lady. One day, her cleaning lady came to her and said that she was struggling with her health. She asked for Tanya’s help. Tanya felt so convicted. This woman has been in her house every week for over a year and Tanya didn’t see her.   Tanya challenges you: Do you see the people around you? Do you open doors for people? Do you say thank you? Tanya said to herself: “Never again will I ever have someone in our home and not serve them.” Are you mindful of the people around you? Learn to see the people around you who are desperately looking for what you have to offer. Humans are blessed with the gift of choice   If you don’t like your job, your family, or yourself, what are YOU going to do about it? You hold the power to change. Amazing people don’t just happen. Tanya has lived through sexual and physical abuse. She’s in tears when she says that she attempted suicide. The nurse at the hospital told her, “You’re here for a reason. Don’t ever give that away.”   If she can push past her experiences, you have the power to do it as well. If you need someone to say, “Yes, you can.” Tanya is there for you. Give yourself permission to do the work to become the next level of you. It is going to take you standing in the gap for yourself to move forward.   Where do you see yourself going from here? Where will you show up?  How can you help others get there? How can you bring more value to this world? How will you pour into younger generations? How can you blaze a trail for younger women?   Tanya emphasizes that you can’t grow and expand and be a next-level servant leader without challenges. It takes growth and grit. Tanya is passionate about coming alongside women and saying, “You’re not alone.” Listen to the whole episode of My Extra Mile to hear her amazing journey.

When David Implemented THIS Strategy, His Life Changed Forever | David T.S. Wood

“When I take 100% responsibility for everything in my life and everything not in my life, there’s no one left to blame.” — David T.S. Wood   One of the reasons David shies away from social media is that influencers tell people how to live. They push quotes and personal development. David believes the best way to bring a quote to life is to share a story—not push it down people’s throats. In this solo episode of My Extra Mile, David tells some stories to share how he’s implemented this quote in his life with radical results. Don’t miss it! You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Taking 100% responsibility for everything in your life How to learn to be unattached to being right Why you need to stop playing the blame game The importance of celebrating your wins A couple of simple exercises to embrace Why take 100% responsibility for everything in your life?   It’s an empowering quote—but only if you live it. When you take 100% responsibility for everything—the empty bank account, maxed out credit cards, or being overweight—you don’t live in the world as a victim.   Once you take responsibility for the good, the bad, and the ugly, then you have the power to do something about those situations. It’s easy to blame external circumstances. But there are plenty of people who are living through the same hardships you are who model the right way to do things. There are thousands of people who live a fit and healthy life with the body you want.   David had an urgent phone call with a successful, wealthy individual. Something happened that David never does—he overslept the call. David always strives to be an honest person. But because he missed the call, he felt himself searching for an excuse, a little white lie or justification to ease his embarrassment. But in the end, he said “You’ll never guess what—I overslept.” They laughed about it and moved on. He took responsibility. You have to be unattached to being right   David points out that if you want to be right, you’ll live in a world of resistance or struggle. When David first started backpacking, he spent some time in Egypt. While there, he studied the pharaohs who believed that there were multiple answers to every question. David lives his life in the realization that there’s not one clear-cut answer. Everyone has a different perspective. Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right. The importance of celebrating your wins   When David looks at his home, his lifestyle, and his ability to do things—he takes responsibility for those things, too. He navigated his life to be successful and he’s very blessed, grateful, and fortunate. He can say “I created this.” You can remain humble and still celebrate your wins.   David suggests doing an exercise: write down the things you’ve accomplished that you can celebrate in your life. Then take the time to truly celebrate your wins. When you take responsibility for your wins, you build momentum towards the next step you take.   David emphasizes that as you take responsibility for the good, it feeds your soul and allows you to move forward with more energy, passion, and confidence. When you are confident you are magnetic and attract more of what you want. Responsibility makes you invincible because everything starts and ends with you.   David shares more personal stories to emphasize his point + another exercise you can use to change your life.

A Powerful Approach to Living in an Inclusive World | Martyn Sibley | David T.S. Wood

22% of the UK population is living with a disability. 1.3 billion people globally have a disability. Those 1.3 billion people spend over $8 trillion a year in the market. Yet only 0.06% of advertisements feature disabled people. Martyn Sibley runs a marketing agency that is a vehicle for his life mission: the inclusion of disabled people.   Martyn is trying to wake businesses up to a world of marketing that they’ve been ignoring. In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T.S. Wood talks with Martyn about his disability, his mission and vision for the future, his love for travel, and how he’s changing the world. Don’t miss this educational and inspirational episode. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Martyn’s vision for a more inclusive world Becoming disabled versus being born disabled Thriving versus surviving: The ability to adapt What life was like for Martyn growing up How Martyn met his soulmate Martyn’s passion for traveling the world Martyn’s philosophy of life Moving outside of your comfort zone Disabled people get to dream, too   Martyn was born with a genetic condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. He was 3 when he was given his first power chair. It gave him freedom and independence. Living to adulthood wasn’t a guarantee for him. But his parents found support groups and answers to the barriers they were facing. They learned that those barriers are more cognitive than anything else.   Martyn points out that life will be different, but you should still dream for the biggest mountains for your children. It may take longer to get there. You may have to take different paths. But ultimately, you can still live out the dreams you have for your family. Martyn emphasizes that every life is valuable and there are beautiful experiences to be had regardless of your circumstances. Overcoming the barriers society has placed on the disabled   The biggest barrier Martyn faces is the fear of having disabled people in marketing and advertising. Why? Martyn points out that people are afraid to get it wrong. They’re afraid to have conversations altogether because they don't want to end up with their foot in their mouth. But Martyn would rather someone uses words or phrases that aren’t politically correct if they’re speaking from their heart and with good intent. He shares that “Language has a point and a place, but it’s more about connecting as people.”   The world has not been designed to include disabled people. Martyn notes that “The more disabled people are a part of designing the environment and attitudes and policies, the more the barriers they face are pulled down.” The ultimate goal is that he’ll just be a person—not a disabled person—with no more barriers out there. He notes that “It’s about changing the stereotypes of what someone can or cannot do based on a perception.”   20% of disabled people are born with a condition. 80% acquire a disability. As you get older, the incidence is higher. Martyn notes that another reason society is uncomfortable with disabilities is because it’s a glimpse into the reality that anyone might have to face that circumstance. Martyn’s message is one of inclusion   Consumers are looking for particular products and services that speak to their vision of sustainability. People want to buy from brands that are inclusive and care more about people than profit. Brands are taking notice and realizing that it’s time for a change. They are looking to employ more disabled people and to be more open and accessible. They are shifting towards inclusive marketing—but it’s a slow change. Ultimately, a world needs to be created to be inclusive for all people. And you have to have all of the different voices in the room in order to guide change.   Martyn’s journey is one of joy, passion, and inclusion. Listen to the whole episode to learn more about his life, his passion for travel, inclusive marketing, and how to build a world inclusive of all people.

Your Ability to Adapt is Your Ultimate Superpower | David T.S. Wood

How do you respond in the midst of negative circumstances? Do you allow yourself to give in to emotions of anger, rage, or frustration? Or do you accept whatever happened and move forward? How do you respond when things don’t go the way you planned, and you get pushed off track? In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T.S. Wood shares some stories about the power of adaptability. Changing your outlook on your circumstances can change the trajectory of your life. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... How David almost lost his home to a fire Learn to adapt with the little things to adapt to the big How David’s son’s car accident changed his life How to adapt in the most difficult of circumstances David’s superpower in practice   Years ago, David was at a concert when a storm rolled in. Lightning was striking left and right and people were running for cover. David and Asta wandered into a local bar instead. A friend called him and said, “Dave, your house is on fire!”   David is standing in a bar having just learned that his house is presumably on fire. But he realized there was nothing he could do. So, he called the bartender over and asked for two shots of tequila. So, they sat and sipped their tequila before driving home.   When they drove back to his house, they spent 4-5 hours fighting the fire side by side with his neighbors and the fire brigade. At 3 am, when things had died down, he served everyone drinks in his garden by the pool.   His reaction was his superpower: he adapted. He had to make some choices: If the house isn’t there, what am I going to do? How am I going to feel? Am I so attached that my life will change or end if it’s gone?   If the house had completely burned down, he would’ve started a new chapter. He could rebuild or take the money and move somewhere else—it didn’t matter. If it was gone, it was gone. David knew he could handle it.   Can you look back on the worst thing that’s ever happened to you and realize it was actually the best thing that ever happened?   The world is constantly adapting—and so must you   The world has changed. But the world is always changing. It is completely transformed. Adapting to the world that is, is not about holding on to what was. It comes down to your ability to adapt to what is really happening versus what you wish is happening. You have to accept the reality of what is.   Adaptability has to be practiced with the small things. In the moment where you’re wishing something is different, you are living in regret, anger, and emotions that don’t serve you. But what if you can develop supreme adaptability? What if you live in a world where you can accept everything that’s happening as it’s happening? Where you can shrug something off and say, “If it happens, it happens.” Negative events can change everything for the better   David’s son was in a horrible accident where he veered off a road and eventually smashed his car into a large tree. The tree was on the edge of a steep cliff. His son was in shock. His beloved car was wrapped around a tree. The accident was the accident. The response to the accident—and the story they created—is what they could control. The car was a complete write-off, but he had to move on. If he had the car, he may have stayed in their small town. But he ended up moving to Vancouver and eventually Montreal. This one awful moment in time changed the course of his entire life. Cultivate the superpower: learn to adapt   David shares a call-to-action: Cultivate the ability to accept things as they happen. You can mourn, you can be upset, but you can choose when it ends and when you move on. Accept what is happening, choose your mourning period, adapt quickly, then move on. You’ll see a whole other world open up in front of you.   The people that can’t adapt get stuck. They live there for years. They carry it around like a great big weight on their back. You have the power to choose how long you’ll be stuck in that moment and how quickly you’ll move out of it. You can’t go back in time and wish it was different. What’s done is done. But you can handle and endure anything if you learn to adapt.   Listen to the whole episode for more impactful stories and encouragement from David. Connect with David T. S.

How One Woman Thrived Alone, In Norway’s Frigid Winter | Heather Atkinson |David T.S. Wood

Have you learned to master fear and discomfort to push yourself to places you thought were unreachable? Heather Atkinson thrived for 5 weeks alone in Norway’s bitterly cold winter. How did she do it? How does she find comfort and joy in being alone? Heather shares her fascinating journey in this episode of My Extra Mile with David T.S. Wood.  You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Heather’s frigid journey in Norway’s winter Understanding the influence of fear Heather’s experience with the Wim Hof method Creating a sanctuary in the space that you live The challenges that Heather has navigated How Heather got into network marketing How YOU can live with a joyful heart   Heather’s journey into Norway’s bitterly cold winter   Heather wanted to see how far she could push herself, so she went to Norway in the middle of winter—alone. She wanted to answer the questions: How much would you push yourself when you’re completely alone in a remote place? What will your mind and body allow with no outside influence? How can you control your fear? So she took 5 weeks to see what she was capable of. She told no one where she was or what she was doing. She didn’t need anyone to push her—or congratulate her.   Her biggest fear was not being able to completely commit and realizing that she could fail. So she had to push herself every day. She constantly thought: “What will you feel like at the end of the day if you haven’t done it?” She didn’t want to feel disappointed or mediocre. If she could make it through one day, she could make it through the next.  When people set their minds to something, they don’t necessarily have an agenda. They just reach their goal with whatever means necessary. Heather did what she set out to do.   Embracing the Wim Hof Philosophy   Not only did Heather spend 5 weeks alone but every day she spent time buried in the snow—in her bathing suit. How? By training under Wim Hof and following his methods. His courses help people understand their own thresholds. His whole philosophy is to help you understand that you can do anything. You can train your brain to do as it’s told and not let fear kick in. The breathing techniques can help your pain receptors turn off. You lower your heart rate and don’t feel the cold as intensely. It’s built around controlling the breath.   Her trip to Norway was her way of taking his courses and putting them into practice. When you’re buried in the snow and 100% immersed in the cold, there’s a point where you reach a euphoric stage in your brain. Your whole-body tingles, your ears ring, and you feel as if you’re going to pass out. You don’t feel any pain. She learned to harness that feeling of elation the entire day and then she learned to carry that through her everyday life. The joy she found far outweighed the fear she faced. Live in a state of joy: Find what makes your heart sing   Heather grew up in a tough home. At a young age, she vowed that she would never live like that again. She wasn’t going to let the little things in life bother her. At 17 she left home and she lived for 10 years in a van. She always told herself she was the luckiest person on the planet—and truly believed it. You can resolve to choose joy. Being able to see the joy in everything is her greatest gift to herself.   When Heather is feeling anxious, afraid, or in a negative state of mind she does something physical—she trains hard. She emphasizes that everyone can do something that makes their heart sing. For her, it’s something physical. You NEED to take time to find something you find joy in. Find something that makes your heart sing and do it every day. To hear Heather’s powerful and adventurous life story, listen to the whole conversation!

David Shares His Foolproof System to Resolve Conflict | David T.S. Wood

Do you struggle navigating conflict to a successful resolution? Does engaging in conflict leave you running in the other direction? Are you ready for a strategy to master the art of conflict resolution? Conflict is naturally present in our lives, but most people are unaware that conflict can be resolved elegantly. How? David T. S. Wood shares his foolproof conflict resolution strategy in this episode of My Extra Mile.   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   The three primary responses to conflict The house of a thousand mirrors Leadership and Self-Deception: Get out of the box The importance of the right mindset LEADERS: David’s foolproof conflict resolution strategy A second acronym for everyday conflict The three primary responses to conflict   “The larger conflicts that we see consuming the world today are simply reflections of the smaller conflicts that consume us each day.” — David   David views conflict as something that naturally occurs when you live or spend time with other people. It’s when our wishes, desires, or needs don’t get met or matched with the person that we’re with we spiral into conflict. There are three primary ways that people respond to conflict:   Avoidance: Most people avoid conflict and say, “I’m fine.” Aggression: People who are in conflict give in to emotional responses such as anger. Resolution: When people seek forgiveness, say “I’m sorry”, etc.   David LOVES conflict. Why? Because after it’s resolved, a deeper relationship develops. Our experience with the world is determined by moment-to-moment feelings and interpretations. Humans are story-making machines. We experience the world as we are, and the world treats us in accordance with that—however we show up. Get out of your box   We all have a box that we carry everywhere. When we are closed in our box, we see everyone else as the problem. We treat people as objects (i.e. road rage). We are dehumanizing the person in that situation. Instead, if you’re angry, make an attempt to humanize the other person. How does that help you react differently?   When we are in our box, we push other people into their box. They become guarded, closed, and defensive—in a millisecond. We can’t get out of our box by trying to change or cope with others. Running away won’t help. Implementing new skills or changing your behavior won’t help when you’re self-focused. Instead, you have to focus your attention on others.   When we’re outside of our box we take personal responsibility. We want to help. We are open, connected, fascinated, and curious. We project a different energy and we feel differently. Connect starts with intention. Are you projecting connection and intention when resolving conflict? LEADERS: David’s foolproof conflict resolution strategy   David termed the acronym LEADERS:   Lead with intention: Conflicts typically occur from a misunderstanding or projection of other anger. So you must lead with intention towards the outcome that you want. If you’re still angry you’re not ready for conflict resolution. Explore timing: Is this a good time? If they say “no”, you must respect that. Set a time where you can reconnect. The right thing said at the wrong time is still the wrong thing. Ask them to go first: Active listening is powerful. When you actively listen, your opinion CAN be changed by the other person. Don’t interrupt: Even if it takes 45 minutes to hear someone’s side of the story, let them say everything that needs to be said. Explain your side of the story: Don’t expect anything to change or the person to agree with your side of the story. Understand you may not get an apology. But the intention should be to resolve the conflict for yourself—despite the outcome for the other party. Resist the urge to gossip: If you’re whispering to other people intentionally, you’re not resolving the conflict—you’re perpetuating it. Stay true to your intentions and stay on high ground. You can ask for help and guidance if you’re doing it to reach a solution without using names and the exact scenario. Always talk about people as if they’re standing next to you.   To hear David’s full explanation of his strategy and the stories he shares to drive the point home, listen to the whole episode!

You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Changing the results, you see in your life Nailing down the broken window you must overcome David’s garage renovation and re-organization How to master your master closet Conflict resolution: Clean up your conversations The 5 minute-exercise to declutter your life Leave a legacy that is simple + straightforward The theory of broken windows   A social experiment was done by a scientist where he parked two different cars, opened the hood, and left them sitting for one week. One car was placed in a high-crime neighborhood in the Bronx and the other in a California neighborhood. Within one week, the car in the high-crime area was completely gutted. But the car in California sat for an entire week completely untouched.   So, the scientist broke the windshield. Within 24 hours that car, too, was completely gutted. The reigning theory is that a broken car window is the temptation needed to attract thieves. Similarly, graffiti on a building attracts more graffiti. If you allow something negative to remain untouched and unfixed, it attracts more negativity.   What is your broken window? What things in your life are attracting negative energy? What things, places, or people aren't serving you? David notes that holding on to negative energy is like drinking poison—but expecting the other person to die. Fixing your broken window can free up space in your lives to attract beauty, adventure, and opportunities. The different areas you can declutter your mind + life   What areas can you begin the process to declutter? David shares some examples from personal experience:   Your garage: David began renovating his garage by dedicating an entire morning to sort through large cupboards full of clutter. The items either went into storage, were donated, or put back in the cupboard. His garage is now his man cave with a ping pong and pool table, foosball table, dartboard, pinball machines, and his cars/bikes. Your closet: David went through everything in his closet. If it didn’t fit or he hadn’t worn it, it got donated. The first time he did this it took hours and was admittedly exhausting. But the feeling afterward was indescribable. Your bedroom: David worked with a couple where the wife desired more intimacy in their marriage. So, David asked what their bedroom was like. It was a landing place for unfolded laundry and the bed was never made. He challenged them to make the bedroom a sanctuary so that it was inviting of intimacy. He challenged them to buy beautiful sheets + candles, get rid of the television, and create a space conducive of the energy they wanted to attract. It radically changed things for them. Your conversations: When he has a conversation that needs to be cleaned up, he leads with his intention: “I want to be closer, I want a deeper relationship, etc. but there’s something we need to talk about…” David’s 5-minute challenge to declutter your life   David’s challenge is simple, but the results speak for themselves:   Set a timer for 5 minutes and address ONE thing in your home that needs to be cleaned, organized, fixed, etc. Junk drawer? Unorganized closet? Messy pantry? Loose toilet seat?  Choose one area, set your timer, and spend 5-minutes cleaning it up.   Why is this so important? A cluttered and disorganized life full of unfinished projects attracts negativity. It clutters your mind and removes your focus. If you constantly feel overwhelmed and can’t seem to finish anything you set your mind to, start small. Declutter your surroundings and you’ll be amazed by how things change.   If you notice something, address it immediately and clean up that energy. It frees up space to allow you to recommit to something and complete goals that have been lost in the clutter of your mind. David knows from experience that the results are freeing and worth the effort. Listen to the whole episode for the full discussion.

Move Beyond Your Bio and Limitations | Andrea Henkart |David T.S. Wood

What labels have you assigned yourself? What ‘bio’ do you project as who you are? Are you placing limitations on yourself because of what society says about you? In this episode of My Extra Mile, Andrea Henkart Joins David T.S. Wood to talk about becoming an awakened person and moving beyond the limitations that you’ve set for yourself. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Learning how to move away from external influences The impact of social media on young women How to change women’s mindsets about themselves Recognizing the labels, you’ve assigned to yourself Why most people don’t show up authentically with their parents How to re-establish self-trust and authenticity The role of adversity and overcoming in awakening Practices to ground yourself in the moment Embracing “yes” can radically change your life An impactful story about the power of kindness How to change your environment to change your energy Change the narrative for yourself—and future generations   There’s so much pressure on men and women to look, act, and show up a certain way. Andrea points out that the perception that women have of themselves isn’t based on reality—it’s based on society. Women have lost sight of who they are and what their value is.   But she emphasizes when we can quiet ourselves and listen, we can come to a place where we believe and trust our own self: “When we value ourselves from the inside, we ignite from the outside.” Unfortunately, society and social media are all about comparing—and comparison truly is the thief of joy.   Andrea notes that adults need to show up as an example for their children. Modeling is how kids learn. How ‘mom’ is feeling about herself is what she is projecting to her child—insecurities and all. Embracing yourself leads to setting better examples for your children. Focus on creating more love, more peace, and more friendships. When you feel beautiful it radiates from within. Move beyond your bio   A lot of women struggle with self-worth and self-love. How does Andrea help someone awaken in the workshops she offers? She puts women in groups to talk, share, and go deep. When given the opportunity, women can be real, raw, and move beyond their bios. They’re allowed to question: Who am I? It’s about being real and showing up—and being radically honest with yourself.   One attendee told Andrea that she had never really trusted women before. She was a businesswoman and always related better with men. But she was allowed to be raw and open with a group of women. She realized it was what she’d craved for so long. Women walk away feeling empowered. Re-establish self-trust and authenticity   Andrea lost her husband in a tragic plane crash. It was a struggle to pull herself out of the ashes and recover from the loss. She had to reevaluate who she was, what she was going to do next, and how she was going to show up as a human. And it was painful. But she notes that it was David that helped pull her out. He said, “Andrea, how much longer do you want to feel this?”. It was a pivotal moment. She knew she needed to start letting go of her fears and start saying “Yes.”   Andrea points out that we all have adversity in our lives that we must accept and overcome. But you must reflect on the adversity and acknowledge: How much longer do I want to stay in this space? It’s okay to be in a place of not knowing or not having an answer. But you can find depth within yourself to grow and rise from that. You can’t change your world without changing yourself first.   But how do you do that? Andrea shares that you shouldn’t take yourself too seriously. Find ways to have more fun, say yes more often, and live in gratitude. When things look really dark and you feel your worst, focus on what you’re grateful for. There is a voice inside all of us that is wise—but we don’t listen to it. Tune into that voice. Listen and trust your intuition.   Andrea shares a powerful story about kindness, some practices to ground yourself in the moment, and how to change your environment to change your energy.

A Candid Approach to Extraordinary Relationships |Morgan & Anna Richards | David T.S. Wood 

Anna and Morgan have been together for 15 years and they’ve developed an extraordinary relationship. But how did they get there? What is the foundation of their strong relationship? What did their journey look like? In this episode of My Extra Mile, Anna + Morgan share how they developed their relationship and what ‘life together’ looks like for them. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   What ‘life together’ means to Morgan + Anna Building an extraordinary relationship on unconditional trust Why “Self-love” isn’t woo-woo but vitally important Internal motivation is the driving factor for change Why you NEED to nail down your shared values The difference between a belief and a value Why people attract the wrong men or women An exercise: Look at your non-negotiables together A life lived 100% together    Anna + Morgan do ALL of life together. They work from home together, they work out together, and they travel the world together. Morgan jokes that the only reason they don’t have kids yet is because he doesn’t like going to the gym alone.   Has it always been easy? Of course not. Things were toxic when they were young and in the “party” phase of their life. They’re careful to point out that they’re not perfect and their life journey is unique to them.   You simply have to know what you want. Anna knew from the time she met Morgan that he was always going to be in her life. They failed forward together and held each other through the lowest of the lows. They’ve navigated the highs together as well.   They’ve had so many ups and downs. Morgan has spent many nights on the couch. But they’ve gotten to a beautiful stage in their 30’s. They don’t really fight—they disagree, then they’re over it. But how did they get there? Unconditional trust + Self-love   Morgan points out that their relationship is built on unconditional trust. He trusts Anna with his life. Whatever is going on, they always come back together. They know that they can’t live without each other in their lives. They’re a team, a unit, lovers, & best friends. They take those responsibilities seriously.   But they also love themselves—and unconditional love for yourself spills over into your relationships. You have to feel whole in yourself first to feel whole in a relationship. As you learn to love and trust yourself more, your relationship can flourish. Anna loves the quote by Maya Angelou: “I don't trust people who don't love themselves and tell me, 'I love you.'”   People run into issues because they look for motivation from external circumstances or other people. External factors can be motivating, but the motivation for real and lasting change—physical or otherwise—has to come from within.   Because Anna and Morgan strive towards becoming their own powerful individuals their life together has become sweeter and more grounded. But they admit it’s a journey. You NEED alignment on core values   What are your shared values? If your highest value doesn’t align with your significant others, the simple truth is that you probably won't work out. That’s not saying you have to agree on everything—because that’s not how relationships work. But your life-values need to align and adapt together. You can have separate growth journeys, but they need to intersect.   Morgan’s example is Protestants and Catholics: Their core beliefs are completely different, but their values are the same. You need to sit down and hash out what your values are together. For Anna and Morgan, the things that matter most to them—honesty, integrity, humor, and trust—bind them together.   So how do you develop an extraordinary relationship? How do you find out if your values align? Anna and Morgan state you need to determine your values.   Determine your values by taking Dr. DeMartini's Value Determination Test. Most people think they know where their values lie and then find out they were dead wrong. It’s perfectly fine—but it’s better to know. You can then navigate and work out your life around your values. If your relationship is in turmoil and you’re at a crossroads, nail down your individual values. If they don’t intersect, it may be time to move on.   Anna and Morgan share other resources that they believe impacted their relationship positively—be sure to listen for their recommendations.

A Simple Exercise to Radically Change Your Life | Allan & Lari Hilzinger |David T.S. Wood

Are you ready for ONE tip—one simple exercise—that can radically change your life? Are you ready to shift your focus to shift your reality? In this episode of My Extra Mile, Allan and Lari Hilzinger share the vision exercise that has been a game-changer in their life. What is it? Listen to find out! You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   This ONE tip will radically change people’s lives. How to shift your focus—and shift your reality A simple vision exercise, that changes everything You NEED to be future-focused   Before Lari embraced this life-changing exercise, she always found herself dealing with financial concerns and relationship issues. She spent all of her time trying to get out of the current situation—not focusing on her future. She didn’t have the time to define ultimate goals and was spiraling out of control. She was stuck in what she didn’t want, which is a dangerous place to be in.   Allan and Lari point out that when we look at the average person, their reality creates their life. Some people are crap magnets where everything goes wrong. Why is that? Because they’ve accepted their reality and do not strive for change. So of course, nothing changes. They continue to attract struggle.   Once they realized they could change their vision to what they wanted to create things began to change. A vision exercise: “I choose the end result of”   The exercise Lari & Allan embrace is simple but profound. You create a list of positive choices and your heart’s desires: It starts with “I choose the end result of” and YOU fill in the blanks. Allan shares some of his: I choose the end result of building my highly successful and profitable business empire. I choose the end result of mastering wealth creation to fund our dream life. I choose the end result of impacting millions of people through my gift of writing and speaking. I choose the end result of a fun, adventurous, and connected relationship with Lari I chose the end result of an open, loving, and involved relationship with my daughters.   Lari shares some of hers: I choose the end result of living my true nature and purpose I choose the end result of being healthy I choose the end result of a fun-loving adventurous life with Allan I choose the end result of facilitating impactful change and growth in others I choose the end result of synergistic relationships rich in growth, fun in love   You take your vision statements and envision what each item looks like every single day. You visualize what the end result looks like. No limitations. No conditions. Imagine it as crazy, amazing, and as beautiful as you can imagine it. How to bridge the gap between current reality and the future   They admit that it’s not easy to do right away but the exercise becomes easier as you begin to believe it. To help bridge the gap and find actionable steps you can take towards the future you’re claiming they recommend doing this:   Write down what comes up in your vision. Look at your current reality. Step back into the vision and look over your bridge to the current reality. Think about how you can create a bridge to your future and your desires. Ask your mind: What steps did I take to get to future success?   In Allan’s example, he envisioned the end result of building a highly successful and profitable business empire. In his vision, he sees himself doing business deals, making tens of millions of dollars, and using money to make more money.   In his current reality, he’s made six figures but the last year has been a rough go. So he looks over the bridge and decides on an action step:   I need to talk to more people about the opportunity of network marketing. Don’t get caught up in the how   They both emphasize that you can’t get caught up in the how. Instead, get caught up in the vision. It doesn’t have to happen a certain way. If you succeed, focus on the success and not the negatives along the journey—because it’s all about the end result. However, that happens, it happens. It often won’t happen the way you think it will so you must be open to how it will unfold.   They use the example of a rubber band: one end is your current reality and the other end is your vision (your end result). As you stretch the rubber band—holding your vision and focusing on the end result—it’s structurally impossible for you not to get there because you’re creating tension. The only way to quit is to quit on the end result. If you have negative tension, you get pulled more towards negativity.   At every single moment, we get to choose what we focus on—the negative or the positive. Hold that tension and hope for your vision. A vast vision is scary for a lot of people. But it IS possible. Listen to the whole episode for an in-depth discussion on this powerful vision exercise.

The Power of Personal Integrity | Bruce Buffer |David T.S. Wood

Personal integrity is a powerful character trait that successful people embody. It’s an integral part of who you are. If you lack integrity, it is inherently apparent in everything you do. Conversely, those people who live lives full of integrity emanate positivity. In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T. S. Wood talks with Bruce Buffer about the importance of personal integrity and how it’s the foundation for everything you do. They also talk about what motivates Bruce in the ring and he shares a moving call to action for future generations. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   The importance of personal integrity, transparency, and authenticity Be the best you can be—and the money will follow What is it like sitting ringside and announcing big fights? A discussion of the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling The role kindness plays in Bruce’s business partnership with Kristen An inspiring message to future generations Embrace personal integrity in everything you do   Bruce emphasizes that personal integrity is everything. He NEVER lies (unless he’s playing poker with you and trying to get your chips—then it’s acceptable). He points out that one of the worst things you can do is go through life trying to remember the lies you’ve told. It’s toxic. He implores you to always be honest and truthful—or don't say anything. If someone lies to him in business, he’s out. The relationship is over because he can no longer trust you.   When people see someone, who lives a life of integrity and they see you're a person of quality and substance, they will follow you. If you are a businessperson, you need people to respect you and follow you. That means you need to exemplify personal integrity. But how do you cultivate that? What if you weren’t naturally raised in strong values? Invest in yourself + invest in others   Bruce shares that you have to be happy with yourself as a human being to project happiness and success to the people around you. You need to love yourself before you can love others. If you believe in yourself, then you can project positivity and integrity. So, you must invest in your development as a person.   You must also invest in and give to others. Bruce embraces what he likes to call the “Three-foot theory”: When the people you work with and spend time around are healthy, happy, and profitable—it will come back to you. You will absorb and receive the same for yourself.   It’s one of the key reasons why he and his business partner, Kristen, invest time in doing recordings for all sorts of events. Because everyone is special and needs to be treated as such. They charge very little and most of the proceeds go to charity. They believe in doing good for people and paying it forward. The thank-you notes they receive will bring tears to their eyes.   They just did a video for a man’s wife who has cancer. He wrote them back saying it was the first time in months that she lit up. It’s worth every effort they give—and its what life is all about. What makes announcing UFC fights so fulfilling   Bruce is quick to say that he’s a fan first, and an announcer second. He has a hard time putting into words the feeling that goes through him when he steps into the ring. 50,000+ eyes in the arena are on him plus the millions watching. He’s having a blast and doing what he loves.   He’s enhancing the moment to take fighters and fans to a higher level.   It takes every bit of lung power and passion that he can put into it. He knows what it’s like to stand across from someone that wants to take his head off. He strives to give them everything in that moment that he would want for himself. He announces them the way he would want to be announced—like he’s the one about to put his blood, sweat, and tears on the line. They allow him to enter their space and it’s a really cool moment. Future generations can make their mark   Bruce points out that everything about 2020 has emphasized the necessity for the ability to adapt. He emphasizes that this is the chance to mark yourself as one of the greatest generations ever. Take the time to be strong mentally and physically to perform better than you’ve ever performed before. Take this as an opportunity to be the best you can be.   Set your goals, write them down, and pursue your passions to fulfill your life. The future IS golden if you look at it as such. Above all, exemplify personal integrity in all things. Concentrate on being the best you can be for yourself—then be that for everyone else.

The Raw Truth Regarding Legacy Income | Morgan & Anna Richards | David T.S. Wood

What does legacy income really look like in network marketing? If you have a killer first year, should you expect that to continue? In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T.S. Wood chats with Anna and Morgan Richards about network marketing. More specifically, they talk about why it’s not treated like a legitimate profession and what can be done, and misconceptions about how network marketers make income. If you’ve been on the fence about network marketing, this is the episode that could change your mind. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Anna and Morgan’s podcast: The Anything Goes Podcast Why many feel the need to legitimize network marketing Why network marketers don’t have the courage to own their profession How networking marketing impacts your spouse The journey of leadership in network marketing The raw truth about building a legacy income Why network marketing made sense as a career move for Anna Why the network marketing industry is dominated by women How different ranks come into play and impact you Why YOU should go into network marketing Why network marketing is frowned upon by so many   Why are so many people turned off by network marketing? Because they think of the inexperienced or the worst examples of network marketers as the standard for the entire industry. People come into this wanting a change or transformation in their life, but they lack the experience. They don’t have the training and understanding. People form an opinion on network marketers who are in their infancy. What do Morgan and Anna do differently with their teams? How does it make an impact? Listen to find out. Success is about showing up—no matter what   When Anna left a six-figure job and threw herself into network marketing, she was arguably not ready. But she got to work. She was training women in a profession she didn’t know and learning alongside them. She learned that she needed to take the pressure off of her “title” and simply be present. It was about being in the trenches with everyone else and failing forward. It was about showing up no matter what. Building a legacy income isn’t linear   Every business has natural peaks, valleys, and plateaus—network marketing is no different. Anna’s first year—working harder than she ever has—she made $400,000. Every year since then, they’ve done approximately $200,000 or so a year. Anna’s highest income was her first year. Why? Partially because of when she started in the year and how different events and promotions can amplify the income. But they’ve earned multiple six-figure incomes in network marketing for seven years. Dropping from $400,000 to $200,000 is a normal business cycle. It’s a process of learning and a challenge to overcome.   That’s why it’s important to understand the natural cycle of building a legacy income. It’s about building a foundation and developing a team. Morgan and Anna note that while you’re building stability and a solid foundation, you should keep your life simple. Ride out the peaks and valleys as you build your legacy income, so you NEVER find yourself in a place of desperation. Anna and Morgan continue to discuss how different ranks impact you, why you shouldn’t make drastic lifestyle changes, and why comparison will take you out of the game. Don’t miss it.  Why should YOU go into network marketing?   Why should you say “Yes!” to network marketing? Anna and Morgan have spent six years figuring this out and they’re grounded in it. Anna points out that it’s not a matter of if you’ll do network marketing—but when. Everything is becoming referral based. You’re already doing it.   Morgan points out that approximately every 10 years or so, the economy lets us know that jobs and security can be volatile. It is a necessity to have something like this to give you breathing space to fall back on in times of desperation.   The more good people that can find their way into the profession will raise the tide for all ships. It will continue to legitimize network marketing. Financial wellbeing and longevity will become more important. Ai and robots can’t do what network marketers do. It’s about taking freedom to another level.   Why is the network marketing industry dominated by women? Why does Anna believe she was destined for network marketing?

Lari remembers feeling responsible for money at a young age. She’s experienced having it all—and having nothing. It took her a long time to realize she was repeating childhood patterns in her adulthood. It was pounded into Lari that you need to work hard for everything in life. A lot was expected of her, and she was expected to show up for her family and her community.   Allan never had money as a kid. He was talented in sports but putting pressure on his parents to help pay for gear, travel, etc. was out of the question. They always had enough to get by but that was it. Despite it all, his Dad always said: “At least we’re happy.” Allan grew up with the mindset that people who have wealth just happened to get lucky or they came into wealth. He would gamble thinking if he could get lucky, he could make money. Instead, he got himself into a lot of debt. How do you reprogram your money mindset?   Lari and Allan point out that you must acknowledge and understand that your money mindset has stemmed from everything you’ve experienced and modeled up until this moment. To overcome your mindset, you must dig deep into where it comes from. One of their money tips is to write down what your mindset is, look at it, understand it, and accept it. You must learn to appreciate that it’s the journey you’re on.   Lari took a course—that she talks about in depth in this episode—where she realized that she always ran to her Dad when she was in trouble. Do you run to someone else to solve your problems? When things get tough, where do you turn? Can you reprogram your actions? Keep listening to hear their thoughts. Making behavioral changes regarding money   You have to be open to change. One of the money tips Lari and Allan recommend is learning one new thing about money every day. Turn your cars into universities. When you’re hiking or working out—listen to a podcast or read a book. Your wealth can only grow to the extent you grow yourself.   Another one of their money tips is to surround yourself with people who are in a better financial position than you so you can learn from them. Who are the people in your life that do have a handle on their finances? Ask them questions! Recognize that behavioral and mindset changes are a continual shift and change that will require effort.   Lari and Allan emphasize that you must also take responsibility and start budgeting. Budgeting is NOT a constraint—it’s a freedom. How can you live your life with the money you have? It’s the best way to set yourself up for success. Verbalize where you’re at and what you want. Know and understand that it’s a journey—you can’t change it overnight.   Lari and Allan got clear on what they wanted, they set goals, and they took action. They were focused on their goals—and then the money came. Where focus goes, energy shows. How do money archetypes play in? What are the archetypes? Listen to the whole episode to learn more!

Master Life’s Most Important Superpower | Tracy O'Malley | David T.S. Wood

Do you know what your superpower is? Tracy O’Malley’s superpower is the ability to talk to anyone. It’s useful in network marketing, sales, and even just everyday life. The world changes color when you have the ability to talk to anyone. So how do you talk to anyone? What is the key to connecting with other people?   In this episode of My Extra Mile, Tracy O’Malley returns to delve deep into the power of self-awareness and how it’s the foundation for anything you wish to accomplish. She talks about learning your Enneagram type, learning to see each type in others, and how to adapt your approach to connect with people on an individual level. If you want to learn her superpower of being able to talk with anyone, this is where you need to start! You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Tracy O’Malley’s superpower: The ability to talk to anyone How she cultivated the ability to talk to anyone The nuts and bolts of learning to talk to someone How to determine your Enneagram type Adapting your energy to the person you’re with Adapting how you communicate with your children What it’s like to be able to talk to anyone Use the Enneagram personality test as a starting point   Tracy could always read people, even as a little girl. She saw things that other people didn’t. Looking back, she sees it as an intuitive gift. For most of her life, she used that skill to protect herself and manipulate others. Now, her intuitive abilities come from a genuine and authentic place of love and compassion—not protection and guardedness. Those are the skills she uses today to help change the world and help others step into who they are.   But how do you get to that place? Tracy had to learn to realize the motive behind how she was communicating with others. The Enneagram helped her put together a framework to understand who she was. It helped her understand that “Everything that I do, everything that I say, every way that I communicate is coming from a place of ‘Tracy doesn’t want to be backed into a corner, be vulnerable, or rely on anybody.’” You have to understand that and have compassion for yourself.   Tracy was originally hesitant to take the Enneagram test. She didn’t want yet another label. Now, Tracy is vocal about how important the test is and believes it’s one of the greatest tools you could ever use in personal development. It can help you get out of the box the world has put you in. It can open your eyes to things that haven’t made sense to you. Do you want your message to be received?   You don’t want people to adapt to you because they’re afraid of you. That doesn’t build a connection—it builds fear and divisiveness. If you’re choosing to be a leader in your home, business, or the world, you must be willing to adapt first. There IS a way to be effective. You can adjust your tone, the words you use, your posture, and body language.   Tracy realized that if her kids—or whomever she was interacting with—weren’t receiving the message she wanted to convey that it was on her to change. If they can’t receive your energy you must choose to adjust if you want your message of love to be received. Tracy shares some deep and insightful stories of how she learned to communicate and connect with her kids in a meaningful way. So, keep listening! Awareness is the key to transformation   Making deep and meaningful changes is going to require some radical honesty with yourself. You can’t pick what looks good on paper. The enneagram is a roadmap that helps you decide where to go. If you have the wrong coordinates and wrong compass, you’ll be going the wrong direction the whole time. It’s only effective if you are honest with yourself.   Each Enneagram type has its own superpower. You can’t operate on the superpowers that you aren’t. Own who you are, look at the whole package and have compassion for yourself. You must remember that developing self-awareness is the key to all transformation. The Enneagram test is simply a tool that helps you become more self-aware—but it can be life changing.   Tracy used to thrive being in-control. As a child and even as an adult she never felt seen, heard, or understood. The ability to see that in others is giving them a gift, whether or not they see it. She can see past their shields. It is her greatest superpower, without question. Because it’s coming from a place of love and compassion for humankind. If you’re ready to find your superpower, listen to this episode of My Extra Mile!

Leading and Succeeding from the Heart | DelRae Messer | David T.S. Wood

Servant leadership is all about focusing on others with no expectations of return. Leading with your heart isn't easy, but when you focus on lifting up others, you inevitably lift yourself in the process! In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T. S. Wood interviews servant leader, DelRae Messer, about identifying leadership styles and nurturing the vision in others.   If you want to identify your leadership style, learn how to build a reliable team, and nurture your path along the way, this episode is a must-hear!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Servant leadership and how to lead from your heart Becoming a leader in every area of your life Questions to ask to identify your leadership style The evolution of leadership Inspiring others and nurturing yourself Letting go of comparing yourself to others Focusing on why you're doing something Practicing gratitude and appreciating where you are   Servant leadership & collaboration   Leading with your heart and your desire to impact others is the definition of servant leadership. Being a leader isn't based on your authority or experience; it's based on leaving people better than you found them. By collaborating with other people, your leadership style will continuously evolve.   Have you ever considered that you have the opportunity to lead in every area of your life? In your home, family, finances, relationship, and even personal challenges, you can lead with positivity and tackle any problem with confidence. Becoming a better human will help you achieve your goals and help you build them surrounded by supportive people.   Questions to ask to become an impactful leader   If you don't think you're a leader, ask yourself why? What is your reasoning for thinking you're not doing enough? Is your thought process focused on success, status, or achievement?   What is your definition of a leader? What character traits, core values, and respect do the leaders in your life have? When you learn how to define leadership accurately, you will start to write your own story about leadership.   Watching other people succeed and helping other people become leaders can empower you and help you feel better about yourself. Breathing belief into other people can, in turn, breathe more belief into yourself. Becoming an effective leader is about developing leaders.   Evolution always unfolds the same way. It will go up, down, and plateau, but you have to let go of the outcome and focus on the journey instead. Inspire action in other people but be sure always to nurture your path first.   How to develop your leadership style   Get uncomfortable, speak out, and share your story! Work with your team and relationships to develop a collective vision, so everyone is working towards the same goal. Set a goal just for yourself and stay in your lane to show others the power of belief in yourself.   The fastest way to slow your growth is to compare yourself to others. Your path is unique, and the skills others have gained will never be the same as yours. Each person's journey is different, and success will vary, so be proud of what you've done and how far you've come.   What are you struggling with right now? What are your most significant pain points, and what has benefited you along the way? People won't care how much you know until they know how much you care. A focus on servant leadership isn't something you do with any expectation of return; it's about doing things for others with no expectations. Focus on practicing gratitude for the little things while working towards the big.   Connect with DelRae Messer Follow DelRae on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wellnesstentrepreneur/ Follow DelRae on Instagram: @DrDelRae   Connect with David T.

Create the Ultimate Romantic Relationship with These Skills | Beth Hanishewski | David T.S. Wood

Have you ever received relationship advice that is so simple and easy to implement that it seems too good to be true? Energy + Value + Currency = Happiness! In this episode, David T. S. Wood and his guest, relationship guru Beth Hanishewski, discuss this proven formula that can help you find happiness and hope in your relationships. If you want to learn more about this formula, this episode is a must-hear!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   A relationship formula that works Identifying your partner's energy Figuring out what they value most What your partner's love "currency" is Beneficial questions to ask your partner Relationship advice and homework to help you get started How to recognize your energy   Think of energy in 4 quadrants: feminine light, feminine dark, masculine light, and masculine dark. These names aren't speaking to gender classifications but rather the characteristics that accompany different types of energy.   For example:   Feminine light: emotional, spontaneous, inspired, collaborative, and nurturing Feminine dark: spiteful, whiny, manipulative, hysterical, and submissive Masculine light: logical, competitive, focused, loyal, and present Masculine dark: closed, grumpy, controlling, and violent   Now, think about how your energy changes when you're around this person. When you think about that person, do you feel yourself anticipating their energetic effects on you? What energy makes you feel your best? Try to pinpoint that feeling to focus on when you're around that person. When you change your energy, you may see a shift in theirs as well! The secret to nurturing their values   Have you taken the time to consider what your person values most in life? Their values are the unconscious, intangible things they hold highest in their life. If you aren't aware of their values, you could be unintentionally robbing them of the most crucial elements in their life.   The feminine tends to value safety the most, which includes physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, sexual, and even financial matters. When you do or say something that makes them feel unsafe, you will be able to see their energy change. If you're not sure if you're affecting them, ask! Once you know, talk with them to see what you can do to help them feel safer.   The masculine values freedom, including their time and energy. Do you ever tell your partner to do something with the expectation they do it right away? Consider giving them the time to decide when and how they'll do it instead.   Identifying their "currency"   In the relationship formula, currency is how you show your person you care. Some examples of the different types of currency are:   Feminine: safety, connection, and protection Masculine: freedom, appreciation, and trust   When both sides of the relationship are paying out the right type of currency, you will achieve that perfect connection. You can then work towards creating synergy to see who they truly are, instead of criticizing them for their flaws. Be sincere in how you work towards your happiness, and the results will speak for themselves!   Relationship advice to help you move forward   When used correctly, the relationship formula results in happiness and hope for yourself and your relationship. But, if you take away any of the pieces, you could see the energy shift back into the dark/negative zone.   If you aren't sure where to start, ask your partner these simple, but effective questions:   "How can I love you better?" "What do I do that pushes you away?" "What do I do that pulls you closer?"   Take responsibility for your actions and forgive yourself and your person for not knowing better. When you're in your light, everything around you is affected. But, when you move into the dark, everything around you becomes INFECTED.   HOMEWORK: Apply the formula to your relationship, note what happens, and see how it changes things for you. Focus on keeping your energy positive, shower your partner with the currency that means the most to them, focus on the values they crave, and don't set any expectations. Expectations are the thief of joy.   Going first isn't easy, but the most important influence in a relationship is YOU!

Small Steps You Can Take to Change Your Money Mindset, Panel Discussion | David T.S. Wood

When it comes to your money mindset, what motivates you to save or spend? If you don't know the reasons behind your action, it can be hard to rewrite your story to achieve the life you want! Luckily, in this episode of My Extra Mile, David T. S. Wood discusses this topic with a panel of money experts as they share simple steps you can take today to change your money mindset.   Changing from a spender to a saver starts with knowing where your money goes as you earn it and only spending on what you can afford as often as possible. If you want to find your money mindset, this episode is a must-hear!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Paying yourself and learning how to save Setting aside money for your future Finding balance in your life Understanding where your money goes every month Planning and spending consciously Learning how to live within your means What "fear of missing out" is and how to avoid it Creating a realistic budget   How to change your money mindset   Do you pay yourself first? Each time you earn money in your job or side hustle, you need to start setting aside some money to pay yourself! An excellent place to start is 10% of each paycheck going into your pocket and 20% for your savings or retirement. By immediately taking these funds out, you will begin to build a future for yourself.   You won't notice the savings right away, but as you consistently take an increment off your paycheck and pop it into your savings, or "set it and forget it" you will start to see a real change. It's essential to find a balance, though.   Find ways to consciously spend on things that matter and save for your big goals. Read and study money masters to learn how to manage your money effectively. Learn what compound interest is, where to put your money so it works for you, and spending and saving with purpose.   Saving, spending, and everything in between   Did you know that the average person in the US has less than $400 in savings? When you live outside of your means, you won't be able to navigate trying times by having money in savings to help you come out ahead. These are the cases when people in need stack on additional debt by borrowing, compounding, and exacerbating an already problematic financial situation.   Additionally, before you purchase things with credit and build more debt, save instead so you can try to purchase it outright. Live within your means, and don't buy things emotionally. Don't buy a car you can't afford, don't buy a house and get wrapped up in a mortgage for more house than you need. Wait to buy until you can afford it or until you're ready to commit to the long-term purchase.   What's the priority for what you're buying in your life? Are you buying it because you want it or because marketing tells you you need it to live a good life? Do you feel like you buy things based on a "fear of missing out" (also known as FOMO)? It's crucial to understand your payments and earnings and how they play together in your financial future.   Building a budget that works   Do you know how to start a realistic budget that will bring results? You have to create a budget that works for everyone's financial goals in your household by taking everyone's expenses and goals into consideration. Find an amount that includes paying yourself first and paying into your savings and paying off any debts or investments. If you don't have any debt, consider saving ahead of time so you can pay it off more quickly, like your own line of credit.   If you feel like you have too much month left at the end of your money, you need to change your money mindset. By rewriting your mindset, you can go from a full-time spender to an efficient saver. If you need more support, read books written by financial experts, find a money mentor, and learn how to be more comfortable talking to people about money!   Connect with Andrew Logan Follow Andrew on Instagram @AndrewJamesLogan Andrew Logan's Book: The Way Out   Connect with Lloyd Ross Follow Lloyd on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lloyd.ross.7 Follow Lloyd on Instagram @LloydJamesRoss   Connect with Shawn Owen Follow Shawn on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/shawn.owen.35 Follow Shawn on Instagram @ShawnOwen15 Shawn's Website: Chipsy and Lulu   Connect with Courtney Bouchard Follow Courtney on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/courtneycave   Connect with David T.

Effective Leadership Tips to Help You Grow Your Team | Cathy Savage | David T.S. Wood

Effective Leadership Tips to Help You Grow Your Team | Cathy Savage | David T.S. Wood   Being an effective leader is essential to growing and developing your team. But do you know what it takes to be a leader? In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T. S. Wood interviews leadership expert, Cathy Savage, about leading with compassion and nurturing others to lead under your guidance. If you want to be a better leader, develop more rounded teams, and take your business to the next level, this episode is a must-hear!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   What leadership is truly about? Learning how to step in and lead with elegance The four attributes of an effective leader Traits that will hold you back from effectively leading The five steps of leadership How to grow as a leader and build your team   What is leadership?   What does leadership mean to you? Is it about assuming control of a team? Is it about stepping up to take responsibility when there isn’t any in place?   Leadership, at its core, is about unifying people to work towards a common goal. But to be an effective leader, you have to first work on yourself. You have to take breaks, develop your skills, and learn to step up even when you’re afraid. You have to constantly embrace your strengths, grow your weaknesses, and enhance your team every step of the way.   The four attributes of an effective leader are:   Compassion Trust Hope Stability   But a leader should also be: Fair Friendly Firm A unifier   Traits that hold some leaders back   Gossip is one of the easiest ways to destroy reputations and erode teams. If someone is gossiping to you, they are more than likely gossiping ABOUT you, too.   Another obstacle many leaders need to overcome is ego. If you’re wrapped up in what is best for YOU, you’re not being an effective leader. You have to control your ego for the benefit of others because it will detract from your ability to lead effectively.   The four agreements to keep in mind are: Don’t take things personally Don’t make assumptions Do your best Be impeccable with your words   A leader unifies the team. When you know you can serve, heal, improve, and put others before yourself; you will be a successful leader. As long as you care, you can succeed! A good leader leads when no one is watching. If you’re going to say something, you have to live it and be true to yourself!   The five levels effective leadership   The five levels of leadership that you will walk are: Position: people follow you because they have to Permission: people follow you because they want to Production: people follow you because of what you’ve done for the organization People Development: people follow you because of what you’ve done for them Pinnacle: people follow you because of who you are and what you represent   Leadership is about continually getting better. You’ve got to learn different languages to communicate with different types of people. Remember that every master was once a disaster, but when you learn to adapt your style to different kinds of people, you will succeed.   There is a leader in everyone. You have to decide to move forward and grow every step of the way. Position yourself to make your presence known and step up and into the unknown.

Learning how to silence it can seem impossible, but with the right people in your life and the right mindset, you can rewrite your inner dialogue. In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T. S. Wood interviews best friends, Kylie Donaldson and Emma Van Der Waal, about their journey to silencing their inner critics so they could live their best lives.

To create a strong mindset, you have to start by knowing your worth. Then you can begin to build your belief and identify your direction in life.   The three elements of success are: The right mind is the key to unlocking your potential The right vehicle is how you’re able to build your success The right time is what makes your success work   You may need to rewire your brain to find success. Start by immersing yourself in the lifestyle you want and believing that you CAN do anything. You don’t need to know everything when you start, but when you push out of your comfort zone, you will grow and figure out how much you DO know!   How to build a success mindset   To build a success mindset, you can start by taking small steps every day. Create a vision of where you want to go and how you’ll get there by focusing on your dream. One of the simplest things you can do is create an affirmation to keep you motivated. Focus on whatever you’re struggling with the most, and then review it as often as needed.   Affirmation Examples: My fears are melting away My mind is open to the idea that my business is growing I forgive those who have harmed me   To take it a step further, create some daily rituals to help you gain the skills you need to succeed.

Or is it negative with people continually making you feel differently than you want to feel?   To help you create a positive environment, consider the following: Surround yourself with the best types of people and remember that you’re the sum of the five people that you surround yourself with the most. Listen, read, and speak positivity to infuse it into every part of your life. Be self-aware, trust the process, and know that we’re all meant to change and grow over time. Remember that you have the power to take ownership of your life. Ask for help when needed! Don’t compare yourself to other people. You never know what is going on behind closed doors. Learn how to catch yourself when you’re headed for a negative cycle to pull yourself back together. Awareness is key! Fall in love with learning.   It’s important to remember to try not to focus on WHAT happens to you, but rather how you RESPOND to it. You can rebuild your mindset at any time!   Your stories will keep you stuck, so choose the story that you want to live. Deal with the problem, learn from your mistakes, and realize that it’s just a phase. Finally, surround yourself with people that will love you enough to help push you through the hard times. With the right people on your side, your story will shift back to the positive in no time!

 Passion, the Secret to an Extraordinary Life | Bruce Buffer | David T.S. Wood

Getting to the heart and soul of what you do is where you find your passion and that is the key to unlocking an extraordinary life! When it comes to living large and giving it your all, Bruce Buffer is no stranger to living passionately. In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T. S. Wood talks with Bruce about how to know when "It's time" to follow your dreams. If you want to live your life fueled with passion, this episode is a must-hear! You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Infusing your life with passion Realizing when it's time for a change and how to monetize your interests Saying "It's time" to your goals The secret to having a great day Waking up to the possibility of what's in front of you A pyramid analogy to help you stay focused The secret to becoming 100% better at everything you do Daily routines to help you live your life passionately   When you get knocked down, you have to get back up and push forward even harder to get to where you want. When you infuse passion into everything you do, you'll:   Enjoy it more Easily face with any positives and negatives you encounter along the way   Living your life with clarity and certainty will allow you to invest fully into whatever you want. You will wake up to the possibilities in front of you and pursue your dreams without regret. To start living the life you want, create a morning ritual, and maybe even add a mantra to keep you focused on where you want to be. The secret to having the best day possible is starting it with a positive, passionate attitude. The power of a pyramid hierarchy   What happens if you don't know what your passion is in life? What if you don't know where you want to go, let alone how to get there? If you're not living your best life, start by identifying the things you enjoy. Then consider what your life would look like if you did that every day!   Life is like a pyramid, whether you look at your home, work, etc., there is an essential hierarchy for everyone involved. The top 2% of the pyramid is the people making things happen and hustling every day. The remaining 98% is just as important as the top 2%, though. Without that support system in place, the whole pyramid would crumble.   If you're going into something for the first time, tackle the essentials first and learn the basics to find your footing. Then, once you've mastered the basics, go on to the next thing, and then continue the cycle as you work towards mastering whatever it is in front of you. But, a word to the wise: don't spread yourself too thin and try to learn many different things. Choose one path you're passionate about that is in line with your goals and give it your all as you climb the pyramid to that top 2%! The key to unlocking an extraordinary life   Hard work isn't what happens while you're on your way up the pyramid. The hardest part is maintaining consistency and keeping yourself successful once you're up there! It can be tempting to become complacent at the top and lose your momentum, but if you do, that is when your business will start to fall.   The key to an extraordinary life is passion, but it's also crucial to learn not to take things for granted. Passion creates a 24/7 attitude of success and appreciating the journey will give you a much better understanding as you encounter others along the way. If you want to get 100% better at anything you do, you only need to be 1% better every day for 100 days! With the right attitude and focus, you can do anything!

Every success story is a journey full of learning experiences, and figuring out how to start a MLM business is no different! In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T. S. Wood interviews Allan & Lari Hilzinger, who, like most network marketing professionals, came to the industry in a roundabout way.   If you want to learn how to start any business successfully, learn how to grow from your mistakes, and hear some tips for starting strong, this episode is a must-hear! You’ll also have access to a powerful exercise to move past your limiting beliefs to invest back in yourself and your dreams!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   A story of moving from multi-career entrepreneurs to MLM experts Focusing on WHY you want to share your business with others Prioritizing what you need to do to achieve your goals Setting goals and doing what’s necessary to reach them Learning how to be ok with “No” and accepting feedback An exercise to help you believe in yourself A look back at what these experts would have done differently How to start a MLM business and identifying your “why”   Do you have a clear enough vision of why you want to get into MLM and can you share that vision with others? Do you love the business? WHY do you love it? Your “why” is unique to your journey and should be the motivation behind everything you do to achieve your goals.   Are you ready to invest in your MLM business full-time or are you planning to devote your time on the side while you continue your other full-time career? Understanding the time that you can invest in your business will allow you to scale your time accordingly and pinpoint the best place to start for your specific circumstance. The balancing act you will have to implement is unique to each MLM, so be ok with where you are and be kind to yourself along the way. The power of a positive mindset   In MLM, you will most likely receive more “No” than “Yes,” which can be incredibly discouraging! But consider it from this perspective instead: “No” may mean “not yet!” When you shift your mindset to focus on the positive and continually nurture the relationship with that person, they may eventually see your success and want a piece of it for themselves!   Additionally, as you grow your business and encounter more MLM experts, accept feedback on your business approach to update and refine your skills. In this industry, it’s a constant cycle of learning and growing as you identify the best and most unique way you can connect with your target audience. David says, “You can’t say the wrong thing to the right person, and you can’t say the right thing to the wrong person,” so try to keep this in mind throughout your interactions.   This exercise can help you believe in yourself: Write down your list of thoughts of everything that could go wrong. Be as drastic as you want! Now ask yourself, “Is it true?” If you answer yes, take it a step further, “Is it REALLY true?” Now consider, “Who am I when I believe it’s true?” “How will I come across to others?” “Who could I be if I didn’t believe this was true?” Then, focus on that shift in your mindset to focus on the positive. A look back at what they would have done differently   What would you tell yourself if you could go back and coach yourself from day one? It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in your MLM business, or any business for that matter, you inevitably made some mistakes when you first got started.   Here are some starter tips from the experts:   Regularly ask, “What am I focused on?” and “What SHOULD I focus on?” By shifting your mindset, you won’t waste your time on unimportant details and focus on the essential information instead. Start sharing instantly! Don’t wait to start talking about your business. Be open about your journey from day one and ask for support from your contacts along the way.   When it comes to sharing, it can be tempting to want your family and friends to join your business. But, focusing on the sales pitch is a dangerous line to walk. Instead, keep your language focused on yourself and YOUR journey, asking for support along the way. This will increase interaction with your post, keep your products and business in mind, and keep the conversation positive until they’re ready to learn more.

How Losing Everything, Led Tracy to Undeniable Success |Tracy O'Malley |David T.S. Wood

Losing everything can feel like the end of the world. You can fall into unhealthy habits, create negative self-thoughts, and create a cycle of bad behavior that can feel impossible to escape. In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T. S. Wood and his guest, Tracy O'Malley, share their paths through trauma and the struggles they've endured along the way.   They both get real about their paths, what they've learned, and the lessons that have prepared them for their current success. Their inspirational stories explore the power in helping other people grow and how to learn from your past. If you're interested in moving past your pain and becoming your best self, this episode is a must-hear!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Letting go of what doesn't serve you and moving forward Sharing your story with supportive people Taking a step back to learn from your history Becoming your most authentic self Healing your wounds Using pain and rejection to become stronger Sharing your story and being proud of where you are Losing everything and finding yourself   When everything falls apart, it can feel impossible to move forward and rebuild your life. But when you shift your mindset you will start seeing things from a different perspective, allowing you to heal. Start by letting go of the people and things that no longer serve you, being compassionate with yourself where you are, and sharing your story with supportive people.   But, be prepared for those who may not support your journey. Not everyone is in the mindset of growth and many people are comfortable exactly where they are. As you grow and expand your light it could intimidate people or make them feel bad. Be careful who you share your path with to avoid any backslides.   Your experience and unique perspective make you special, so take a step back and see how each part of your journey affects your story and identify what time in your life may be holding you back. The moment you become aware of this blockage, you'll be headed in the right direction to heal your pain and grow from the things that once held you back.   Where to start and how to grow   Not sure where to start? Try ripping off the metaphorical Band-Aids you've put on your past and do the work to move forward. If you want to grow you have to repair, so you don't repeat the bad habits you want to move past. Your muscle memory can be challenging to overcome but staying accountable for yourself will help you achieve the life of your dreams!   When you start becoming your authentic self, telling your truth, and living the life you want, you may experience pushback. But when you keep pressing forward, you may find that your journey, strength, and hope will inspire others. It's important to remember that no matter how far down the path you've gone or how disqualified you feel for the life you want, you are worthy of everything in your dreams! Your pain can be your gain   Everyone carries wounds, but if you keep experiencing the same pain, you need to face it head-on to heal from it and move forward. Your truth can set you free, so connect with people you trust, let go of people who are holding you back, and focus on the things that bring you joy.   Rejection can be painful especially when it comes to your family and friends. Love, service, and heart are the keys to unlocking your potential, but your Self-love is the most significant piece. Show up, honor who you are, be compassionate towards others, and honor the journey you've been on so far. Don't be afraid to crack open a little bit so people can see the real you. Be prepared to let the world see you as you are and be proud of your journey!   Connect with Tracy O'Malley Tracy's Website: http://tracyomalley.com/ Follow Tracy on Facebook: @Tracy.OMalley Follow Tracy on Instagram: @Tracy_OMalley Follow Tracy on Twitter: @TracyOMall Connect with David T.

When it comes to working with your best friend, learning how to succeed together will help you become even closer. In this episode of My Extra Mile, David T. S. Wood talks with best friends Kylie Donaldson and Emma Van Der Waal about their journey and their key to success is doing it together.   Utilizing your unique skillset will set you apart, and when you add your best friend to the equation, you will go even further. Kylie's gifts are her laser-focus, independence, and her ability to match energy for energy flawlessly. Emma's gifts are her ability to bring people together, creating a sense of community, and the support and love she exudes to all she meets. If you want to hear how you can succeed in business with your best friend too, this episode is a must-hear!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Figuring out your unique strengths Building and layering your skills to advance your career Paving your path to success Transitioning into a mentality for success Navigating challenges so they don't slow you down Emma and Kylie's tips for success Developing yourself and your friendships Valuable words of advice   Letting your strengths shine   Kylie and Emma have a lot in common and share a bond through past struggles, but their unique gifts allow them both to shine in their friendship. Their different styles of leadership enable them to create powerful connections with the people on their teams and enables them to help each other along the way.   As with most successful network marketers, their journey to success stands firmly on a path unique to them. They worked hard to build and layer their skills to advance in their careers, and they've learned how to leverage their strengths when necessary. It can be hard to transition out of the "Me" mentality and shift your focus to helping others, but Kylie, Emma, and David, all vouch for the value of community. When you empower others to do their best, it will be easier to step out of your comfort zone and continue pushing others to do their best.   Navigating challenges to succeed together   In business and life, you have to figure out how to navigate hurdles, so they don't slow you down. But, when you have a friend to help you along the way, it's easier to find a path that works well for your other partnerships. Identify your unique personality and work with those you trust to make your teams stronger.   Emma suggests that when you feel stuck, be consistent in your work and dive in fully. To succeed, you need to plug-in and learn everything you can and then share your passion and drive with those around you. Being consistent, not allowing yourself to be distracted, and not taking things personally will help you be the best version of yourself.   Kylie adds that the biggest challenge in starting your side hustle can be your limiting beliefs. If you put your mind to something, believe that you can do it and find a way to make it happen. Showing up as your most authentic self can be challenging and may take a toll on you when other people aren't authentic, but it will be worth the effort.   Personal development and friendships   Your greatest asset is yourself and your abilities, but your second-best asset is your relationships!

Don't let your tough spots hold you back. Instead, develop a mindset that will push you through to your next level.   Kylie and Emma's parting words of advice are: Stay in your lane and don't compare yourself to other people's journeys Work from your heart AND your mind Be open to the hard lessons Get a mentor who will support you, believe in you, and pull you out of a pity-party Identify the aspects of your business that you believe in and focus on what makes it unique to you Ask your friends to keep you accountable Take ownership of your life and dive in fully Show up for yourself, your team, your family, and your kids   Figure out what you want and how to get there.

Relationship Advice & A Proven Formula for Success, with Beth Hanishewski,

Have you ever received relationship advice that is so simple and easy to implement that it seems too good to be true? Energy + Value + Currency = Happiness! In this episode, David T. S. Wood and his guest, relationship guru Beth Hanishewski, discuss this proven formula that can help you find happiness and hope in your relationships. If you want to learn more about this formula, this episode is a must-hear!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   A relationship formula that works Identifying your partner's energy Figuring out what they value most What your partner's love "currency" is Beneficial questions to ask your partner Relationship advice and homework to help you get started How to recognize your energy   Think of energy in 4 quadrants: feminine light, feminine dark, masculine light, and masculine dark. These names aren't speaking to gender classifications but rather the characteristics that accompany different types of energy.   For example:   Feminine light: emotional, spontaneous, inspired, collaborative, and nurturing Feminine dark: spiteful, whiny, manipulative, hysterical, and submissive Masculine light: logical, competitive, focused, loyal, and present Masculine dark: closed, grumpy, controlling, and violent   Now, think about how your energy changes when you're around this person. When you think about that person, do you feel yourself anticipating their energetic effects on you? What energy makes you feel your best? Try to pinpoint that feeling to focus on when you're around that person. When you change your energy, you may see a shift in theirs as well! The secret to nurturing their values   Have you taken the time to consider what your person values most in life? Their values are the unconscious, intangible things they hold highest in their life. If you aren't aware of their values, you could be unintentionally robbing them of the most crucial elements in their life.   The feminine tends to value safety the most, which includes physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, sexual, and even financial matters. When you do or say something that makes them feel unsafe, you will be able to see their energy change. If you're not sure if you're affecting them, ask! Once you know, talk with them to see what you can do to help them feel safer.   The masculine values freedom, including their time and energy. Do you ever tell your partner to do something with the expectation they do it right away? Consider giving them the time to decide when and how they'll do it instead.   Identifying their "currency"   In the relationship formula, currency is how you show your person you care. Some examples of the different types of currency are:   Feminine: safety, connection, and protection Masculine: freedom, appreciation, and trust   When both sides of the relationship are paying out the right type of currency, you will achieve that perfect connection. You can then work towards creating synergy to see who they truly are, instead of criticizing them for their flaws. Be sincere in how you work towards your happiness, and the results will speak for themselves!   Relationship advice to help you move forward   When used correctly, the relationship formula results in happiness and hope for yourself and your relationship. But, if you take away any of the pieces, you could see the energy shift back into the dark/negative zone.   If you aren't sure where to start, ask your partner these simple, but effective questions:   "How can I love you better?" "What do I do that pushes you away?" "What do I do that pulls you closer?"   Take responsibility for your actions and forgive yourself and your person for not knowing better. When you're in your light, everything around you is affected. But, when you move into the dark, everything around you becomes INFECTED.   HOMEWORK: Apply the formula to your relationship, note what happens, and see how it changes things for you. Focus on keeping your energy positive, shower your partner with the currency that means the most to them, focus on the values they crave, and don't set any expectations. Expectations are the thief of joy.   Going first isn't easy, but the most important influence in a relationship is YOU!

Mastering Time Management and the Art of Focus | Susan Sly |David T.S. Wood

If you're feeling unfocused or overwhelmed with your schedule it can be hard to focus on time management strategies. In this enlightening episode of My Extra Mile, David T. S. Wood interviews serial-investor, multi-millionaire, and wonder-mom, Susan Sly. If you're interested in learning how to master your schedule, effectively structure your week, and find time for what matters most to you, this episode is a must-hear!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Learning how to master time management Identifying your primary need and focusing on it Actively structuring your day and week A challenge to help you identify your goals Taking time for yourself so you can be your best self A day in the life of a successful businesswoman Pushing yourself forward to become who you want to be Learning how to set boundaries Deciding to move forward towards your goals   How time management strategies can change your life   You have the same amount of time in your day as the people you admire. All the obstacles you face may seem overwhelming, but there is always a way out.   First, identify what your primary needs are in life, and focus on achieving that one goal. Whether it's money, health, or family time, take the steps you need to accomplish crucial things in your situation. Then, actively structure your day and week to work for YOU by making a schedule that helps you meet your goals.   If you feel scattered, determine how much value your time is worth and then figure out where your time is currently going. For example, write down everything you do for a month to see where your time is going and where you can restructure your days to make the most of your time.   Using a schedule to get more of what you want   Susan suggests always making your schedule the night before so you can know what to expect each day. Being strict with your schedule will help you reach your goals so you can actively make time for yourself, your family, and your business goals. She suggests taking 45 minutes daily to your income-producing activities and staying focused on what you're going TO, not what you're going to THROUGH at any given time.   A common mistake people make is resisting change and being too comfortable being uncomfortable. But, if you want to reach your goals, you have to become someone you've never been. Going backward in life should scare you enough to push you forward. Figure out what you need to say "no" to every day so that you can say "yes" to the things that matter.   Setting boundaries and taking care of yourself first   What boundaries do you need to set to keep yourself focused on the things that matter most? For example: Not working on Sundays Powering down electronic devices at a set time Getting enough sleep Canceling things when necessary   What have you done in the last 24-hours that moved you towards your goals and dreams? If you're feeling unmotivated, start with: Getting a book or study materials to keep you focused Writing out 100 goals Doing something every day to work towards your goals   Taking care of yourself first will allow you to be there for everyone and everything else. Make sure your actions align with what you want most. Ten years from now, what will your legacy be? What will you wish you spent more time doing? You have to CHOOSE to move forward towards your goals to create the type of future you want.

But, it's important to remember that every success story is a little different because every couple and individual has different skills they are bringing to the table. Through hard work and sacrifice, they were able to build a life they love with enough time to do things they enjoy.   With residual income, you're ALWAYS going to have to work to maintain your income. There is a myth in network marketing: once you get the customers and build the team, you can sit back and earn without doing any more work. But in reality, your income will always fluctuate. Just like your life changes frequently, your clients and team members will go through changes too. If you don't put in the work to support and listen to them when they struggle, you may lose their business for good.   A working couple's tips for success   All relationships are challenging at times, but when you add a business to the equation, things can get complicated. Kyle and Megan have been there and want to share their tips to help you work together successfully:   Find the best way to communicate with your partner and try to stick to that method Schedule time together to talk about your lives Don't give up on each other If you disagree and feel the argument escalating, take some time to cool down before continuing Regularly review your short, mid, and long term goals together to stay aligned Acknowledge each other's efforts and be appreciative Try not to compare yourselves to each other or set expectations Tell your kids what you're doing so they get where your time is going and why Create a vision board to remind yourself and your family why you're doing this Create daily practices or rituals for yourself and as a couple Go on dates   The journey will be long and success won't happen overnight. Developing your business will take time but when you hold on to each other and respect each other's roles in the partnership it will be easier to focus on your goals. Stay aligned and find a new way to find joy every day!   Resources & People Mentioned   The Magicians Way, by William Whitecloud Isagenix   Connect with Kyle & Megan Nekrash   Kyle & Megan's Website: Family Freedom Plan Follow Kyle on Facebook: @KyleNekrash Follow Megan on Facebook: @MeganMcEwenNekrash   Connect with David T.

Get from Where You Are, To Exactly Where You Want to Be with Janey Snelgrove

It can be easy to lose track of your goals and fall into a downward spiral of debt when you don’t believe in yourself. In this enlightening episode, David T. S. Wood and his guest, Janey Snelgrove, talk about the power of belief and how to create a vision of the life you want. Janey also shares a hands-on activity you can do with your family to unite your vision and your efforts, and help you reach your goals together. If you’re ready to change your life and rediscover your personal belief as a network marketer, this episode is a must-hear! You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Growing yourself to grow your potential Creating a vision board to keep you focused on your goals Discovering how to believe in yourself and your dreams Identifying your limiting beliefs Learning how to manage your income from day one What is your vision for the future and how do you get there?   Janey is a believer in the power of a clear vision. Try out her vision board exercise with your family to create your own set of specific goals and dreams. Permit yourself time to dream about your wants and be specific about what would bring you the most joy in every area of your life.   What is important to you? What do you want most? (Family time, relationship building, exotic trips, dream home, income goals, etc.) What words can help you gain clarity as you set your goals? What are your financial goals? What are your health goals?   Once you’ve identified these goals clearly, place your vision board somewhere you will see it daily to keep you focused and motivated. Once you’ve started to reach some of those goals, or if your goals change (which they should!) create a new board or update the one you have to keep it relevant. Learning how to believe in yourself and your business   Your journey and your upbringing influence your understanding of business and finances. What are your beliefs in money, and what is your knowledge of how to manage it? Do you believe that you have to work hard to earn money? Have you been told it’s the root of all evil?   These sabotaging thoughts can make you question your business decisions. Your upbringing has developed a default blueprint of your thoughts, feelings, and actions surrounding everything you do in your life. By identifying the unproductive parts of your blueprint, you can rewrite them to stay focused on the life you want.   How to manage your income from day one   When you have a job and a network marketing side hustle it can be tempting to overspend and end up in the same financial situation you’ve been working to escape. Revisit why you took on your side-hustle in the first place and create a clear vision of where you want your money to go. Once you see that path, do the work to make sure that you reach your end goal!   The myth about residual income is that you do the work once and then keep earning, even while you sleep. But in reality, you have to keep working to maintain your ideal income. Your side hustle is a real profession and should be treated with the same amount of effort you invested at the start. You have to keep working, building, and learning to keep it producing.   Janey’s final thoughts are that when you’re digging yourself into a financial hole, figure out what led you there and then choose to stop the bad habits. Stopping habits is just as important as starting them, so by making this change you will be back on track towards your goals!

Setting yourself up with an income-producing side-hustle can be the difference between struggling and succeeding. Talk about money with your family, friends, and colleagues to discover new opportunities for a backup plan. It's never a good idea to rely on one income stream and this can help make sure you and your family are never caught off guard.   The importance of knowing where your money is going   Do you know where your money goes every month? Have you ever sat down to identify all the different recurring expenses on your account and identified items you should eliminate?

Set a budget for spending and saving so you can make sure you're covered both in the present and in the future.   Create additional income streams Choose a side-hustle that can be operated online and from home. If there is a product, choose something reoccurring and consumable. Commit to working with that company for at least five years to give yourself enough time to learn the business. Pay yourself first and, most importantly, don't spend all of your money each time you earn!   BONUS: A game to help you focus on your ideal life   Financial independence is being able to choose how you spend your time and money on your terms. But, financial freedom is having enough money to meet your needs and wants while still having enough to donate and share.   Play a game with your family where you each imagine a life of financial freedom.   What would your magic number be? What would your life be like and what would you do? How would you spend your money?   Write this down and reflect on it regularly to stay motivated towards your goal.    Resources & People Mentioned   Rich Dad, Poor Dad, by Robert T.

Should You Trust Your Gut to Make Big Decisions? with Kyle Nekrash, Ep #9

When it comes to network marketing, it can be challenging to know when to trust your gut and make a commitment to an unknown path. Kyle Nekrash is no stranger to the thrill of needing to make a quick decision and often follows his gut not only in business but through every adventure he takes. In this video conversation, Kyle and David T. S. Wood discuss the “you’re kidding me” moments that have defined their journeys and taught them valuable lessons throughout their lives.   Kyle’s story is full of passion, hard work, and lessons learned. He has discovered that by using his head, heart, and gut, he can navigate each phase of his life confidently and faces all challenges with a “just do it” attitude. If someone has done it before him or if there is a lesson to learn to teach others, he will face it head-on. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... Finding the courage to take a risk Pinpointing the “You’re kidding me” moments in your life, and how they’ve influenced you Learning how to develop trust and confidence in others Navigating your inner elevator to decide when to trust your head, heart, or gut Defining which opportunity works best for your circumstances Getting back to a heart of gratitude and making meaningful connections with people What is a “You’re kidding me” moment and how does it influence your actions?   Have you ever experienced a scary, embarrassing, frustrating, exciting, or challenging moment in your life that left you exclaiming, “You’re kidding me!” Kyle defines these moments as opportunities to learn more about yourself. They can have a lasting effect on your development and can make significant changes to your personality. The moment you decide to do that scary thing or shift your actions to adjust after an embarrassing moment, you start developing characteristics that can help you face anything confidently.   That moment of fear leading up to a new experience and the happiness you experience afterward can help build your confidence to take the next risk. Kyle and David encourage you to keep getting back up every time you fall because this proof of your resilience can help inspire others to follow in your footsteps. When to trust your gut in the decision-making process   Kyle uses an elevator to illustrate our internal decision-making process: In the head, you can be easily influenced, persuaded, or swayed based on facts. While this is a valuable tool, it can lead to decisions you may not agree with. Your heart syncs with your emotion. Your head and heart don’t always agree, so it can be misleading to use your heart as a guide. But your gut rarely makes a mistake. Stemming from your instincts, which develop over time, your gut is usually the best guide for difficult decisions.   When you’re embarking on a new journey in life or starting a new business venture, your brain may try to stop you from taking action by reminding you of all the financial or emotional consequences that may follow. In your heart, you may feel the pull to do it for the chance to succeed, but your head may be clashing with that desire. Ultimately, your gut is what leads you to decide when it’s time to take action. How to practice a heart of gratitude   In times of struggle, it can be easy to lose track of the importance of connecting with others and sharing your experiences. You never know the impact your story could have on inspiring others, so follow your gut and learn when it’s the right time to share your story. If someone influences you and helps you along the way, take the time to practice gratitude regularly and, when possible, share your appreciation face to face.   There’s no right or wrong way to approach a new opportunity. Find a way to make it work for you and trust your gut to know when to take action. Whatever decisions you have in front of you will provide an opportunity for you to learn (whether positive or negative) and can help guide you to the next right thing. Be open to all offers in front of you and trust your gut to know when to take action!

Navigate Your Path to Ultimate Success

When it comes to personal growth, David T. S. Wood's guest, Lisa DeMayo, is an expert on the journey one must take to achieve success. To date, both she and David have spent countless hours taking classes, studying resources, and training with experts in their field. Why? Because they feel that the people, they mentor deserve a leader who has been in the trenches and can relate to whatever struggles come with the business.   David and Lisa both understand what it takes to become an expert in the network marketing industry. What steps are required to get you on your way to achieving the lifestyle you crave? In this powerful episode, Lisa dives deep into the path she has paved, and shares some life-changing tips you can put in place to reach whatever goals you may have. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Looking at your journey to appreciate the personal growth you've experienced so far Discovering the root of your limiting beliefs so you can start to move past them Finding the best coaches and mentors Tips to help you decide which network marketing company is the right fit A bonus assignment to help you find your path An expert look at what makes an effective coach   If you were to go to your favorite search engine right now and type in "network marketing coach" or "lifestyle coach," you will receive a mixed bag of experts and novices who all want to get your ball into their court. But if you only have a limited budget or if you're new to the industry, how do you choose the right fit?   Having studied coaching for years, lived through experiences that have honed their skills, and continued studying to this day, Lisa and David are both blown away by the volume of people calling themselves coaches and experts. To find the right mentors, they suggest the following tips:   1.       Choose a variety of mentors Your mentor should be relatable, but also have a lifestyle you admire. Additionally, they need to have the experience to back up any claims they make. They also suggest changing or updating your mentors as you progress through your business and in life, to help you maintain momentum.   2.       Write down your limiting beliefs Figure out why your insecurities are there and give yourself the space to figure out what brought them on. Try not to let other people's opinions affect you because they can make you second guess yourself.   3.       Reevaluate the people you spend time with Examine your pool of friends to see how they align with and support your goals. If needed, find new people to spend time with that leave you feeling full and supported. How to utilize life experiences to find your path   We live in a society driven by money. But earning enough money to have the freedom to live how you want can be challenging. Lisa's career started as a super-successful pharmaceutical rep. with a generous income, a company car, and an expense account. After leaving that role to spend more time with her family, she moved into her first network marketing role for a beauty company where she quickly rose through the ranks to become a top earner. But when she realized that many players on her team weren't treated fairly, she decided to step away from that organization to find her next path.   After leaving that company, Lisa faced divorce, losing her close friend and mentor, and having to face the job market as a single mother. Taking some time to figure out what she was looking for, she developed a list of criteria that her next network marketing opportunity needed to meet. She based the information on the lessons she’d learned from her life experiences up to that point:   What was on her list?   The company needed to be more than ten years old It needed to be international, reaching more than North America She no longer wanted to have to focus on a singular gender or age range Are the products offered able to be used daily? The compensation plan should be binary, and all team members should have equal opportunities for success Bonus: How to figure out where you are on your personal growth journey   During this conversation, Lisa shares an exercise that she often recommends to those who are trying to assess their personal growth. Write three letters to yourself to discover your reality:   The bad: Write a letter that allows you to notate all your insecurities, frustrations, and anger The honest: The second letter should be a clear, neutral look at where you are currently The abundant: Finally, write a letter full of your dreams and goals for the future   By having these three letters, you will be able to find the middle ground that can help you discover your next step towards success.   Resources & People Mentioned   The Learning Annex Tony Robbins Cashflow Game Oprah Winfrey Brené Brown Eckhart Tolle   Connect with Lisa DeMayo Lisa DeMayo on Instagram: @lisademayo Follow Lisa on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LisaDeMayoCoach Lisa’s book: The Art Of Getting What You Want   Connect with David Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/davidtswood/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/davidtswood Twitter - https://twitter.com/DavidTSWood1

The Four Most Powerful Words in the English Language

The power of belief is an incredible tool to help you reach your goals, both personally and professionally. But do you know what areas you are strong in and which areas may need a little help? In this empowering video conversation, David T. S. Wood and his guest, Cathy Savage, share their insight into how different belief strategies can impact every area of your life.   Belief isn't something you can turn on and off. It's something that everyone has access to but not everyone utilizes. If you want to get plugged in and change your life and business for the better, this episode is a must-hear! You will gain powerful insight and learn some exercises you can practice finding your starting point on your journey to fully invested belief.   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   The six areas of belief and how they can help you grow Figuring out your limiting beliefs and how to change them A BONUS exercise, challenging you to rate yourself and jumpstart your growth The four most powerful words in the English language Getting back in touch with your inner belief Developing daily rituals to set you up for success   The six areas of belief   In network marketing, your belief plays a significant role in energizing new clients and getting them interested in trying the product or joining your team. However, if you don't believe in what you are saying, it will be hard to get THEM to believe. It doesn't matter how good of an actor you are if you aren't honest and sincere about what you are sharing, your clients will eventually figure you out.   What areas should you continuously check?   Belief in the products Belief in the company Belief in the compensation plan Belief in the industry Belief in YOURSELF Belief in YOURSELF becoming a network marketer   Rate yourself on a scale of 1–10 in each of these six areas. What areas could you use a little help in, and which areas are you doing well? Talk with your mentors, do your research, and work towards getting a perfect score for each area.   Identifying your limiting beliefs to jumpstart personal growth   The first step towards inner growth is identifying the areas where you're struggling. Cathy loves to have her new clients or team members create their story, usually a few sentences, of WHY they think they can't do something. She then has them repeat their statements until they (and she) get sick of hearing those reasons. Once they get to that point, she challenges them to change their story!   What might be holding YOU back?   Take a few minutes to rate yourself in the following areas from 1–10 and write a single sentence representing why you got that score for each area:   Health assessment Career Money Relationship   Now, how can you rewrite your story for a more positive outcome? Talk about your struggles with your team or mentor, investigate new resources, and become a believer in yourself. In doing so, you will be able to inspire others to do the same!   The four most important words in the English language are, "I believe in you." This phrase is something you should share with others, but you should be able to say it to yourself first!   Utilizing the power of belief in your daily rituals   Rituals are a powerful way to develop new routines that can help you reach your goals. Before your feet hit the ground in the morning, Cathy suggests saying an affirmation. Hers is, "Every day I'm going to get a little bit better." Your affirmation should change as you progress through your goals.   Some other impactful rituals that you can practice are:   Saying a prayer or meditating Applying essential oils Taking a break from your phone Exercising Researching and practicing optimal nutrition Contacting friends, family, and colleagues Philanthropy or service towards something you care about   Once you start putting some rituals in place, take time to practice them daily and invest wholeheartedly in your journey towards fully believing in yourself.   Resources & People Mentioned   Jen Patch Susan Sly   Connect with Cathy Savage   Cathy Savage’s Website: Welcome to Cathy Savage Follow Cathy on Facebook: Cathy Savage Fitness Follow Cathy on Twitter: @CathySavage Cathy Savage on Instagram: @CathySavageOfficial   Connect with David Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/davidtswood/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/davidtswood Twitter - https://twitter.com/DavidTSWood1

Moving Ahead Financially in Life with Susan Sly

Susan Sly is no stranger to hard work and has had to fight for everything in her life, overcoming challenges as they presented themselves. In this video conversation with David T. S. Wood, Susan shares how she dealt with a difficult health diagnosis, the dissolution of her marriage, difficult career decisions, and more. In this conversation she gets real about her bumps along the way and shares her insight on how to approach new opportunities.   Whatever you’re facing with your business, your career, your home life, or your health, Susan’s inspirational story can help you look at things from a new angle. There are countless opportunities out there for those willing to do the work to reach their goals, so don’t give up hope and keep moving forward! You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... How to choose to stop giving meaning to your pain Learning how to go from struggling to success How you can forge greatness from your times in the valley Who are you, beyond your job, title, or relationship? Where is the world headed, and which industries will lead? What a side-hustle is and how you can build a side hustle mindset How can you start to generate residual income? Learning how to rethink your current course and keep moving ahead in life If you had to choose only one word, what one word represents you?   In the most painful season of Susan’s life, everything came crashing down all at once. She received a concerning health diagnosis, the end of her marriage, losing her business, and ending up homeless as a single mother on her brother-in-law’s couch. This massive shift in her life made her face things with a new perspective. She took a long bike ride one day and did some serious soul searching to try to figure out where she should go next and, on that ride, one word came to her – teacher. With this new direction, she shifted her business vision and now pursues a lifestyle and career that foster this passion within her.   Susan says that the key to overcoming challenges is, “pick yourself up, get humble, let it go, figure out your strengths, figure out who you are, and just move forward.” It won’t be easy, but greatness is achieved by those who work hard to achieve their goals.   When you’re in a rough patch, that is the time to embrace the opportunity to go a new direction. Accelerate your efforts when the right opportunity arises and go that extra mile to find YOUR success. No one gets ahead with a pity party, so you have to keep moving forward to get ahead.   Overcoming challenges during any economic climate   If you’ve recently lost your job or business, how can you narrow down your options to figure out where to go next? Susan, being in the AI (Artificial Intelligence) industry, has a broad view of where the world is going, and mentions that jobs like social media influencers, driving services, delivery services, and most labor roles are being phased out. Each time a massive global shift happens, like the COVID pandemic, industries change to meet the new needs of the people. In order to take advantage of these openings, you have to try to be one step ahead.   Most of the changes that were supposed to take effect within a decade have accelerated to meet the needs of home-based people needing to make an income.   To find the right side-hustle, Susan recommends: Picking something you can do from home Making sure it can be done online Making sure it aligns with your values Not borrowing money to start it Not leaving your day job (if possible) until you have at least six months of income in the bank to pay yourself and make sure you have benefits How to choose the right side-hustle opportunity   At any given time, countless new companies are popping up to try and make quick grabs for investors and employees, but then they quickly turn around and sell. While this may be nice for the investors, if you’re trying to get started with a side-hustle, this can complicate things for you. Before you commit to a company, Susan recommends looking out for the following: Is the company making claims like a cure for something or a get-rich-quick pitch? Do the co-founders or upper management have experience in network marketing or the field they’re operating? Does the company offer free support and training resources (blogs, audio, video, etc.)? Do your values align with the product or service provided? Do people get cut-off anywhere in your compensation line?   Ask yourself this question, “If not this, then what?” There will always be another pandemic, economic shift, or technological advancement.

Episode 5 - How to Fight Elegantly with your Lover with Beth Hanishewski

Conflict resolution skills can help you fight more effectively and help you avoid damaging your relationships. A good fight doesn't mean that every argument will end with you winning. It means that you take the steps necessary to be kind to each other, even when you don’t agree. There has been a notion for a long time that people in relationships who fight each other are bad or wrong. But in reality, those who argue have more open conversations and are closer than those who don’t. Each time you disagree with your partner, you can CHOOSE to fight fairly so both sides win.   In this powerful video conversation David T. S. Wood and his guest, relationship coach Beth Hanishewski, get real about their love of conflict and their journey to learning how to fight fair. They share some of the lessons they've learned along the way, strategies for an effective fight, and use real-world examples to put things into perspective. If you want to acquire these powerful skills for the benefit of your relationships, this episode is a must-hear!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   The different stages of a relationship and how conflict changes over time Finding the right way to fight fairly so you both win Strategies you can put in place for a quick turnaround after your fight A BONUS exercise to help you figure out what you should and shouldn't do in a fight Working with your partner to develop a fight plan   What stage is your relationship in and how does it influence your fights?   Every relationship goes through stages. As you work through each one, you start to learn more about each other and find more things that could cause an argument.   Toddler stage: These are your brand-new relationships where everything is new, exciting, and beautiful. You don't see the flaws in your person, you don't disagree, and you want to spend all of your time together. School-Age stage: This relationship is a little older. You're starting to notice some cracks in the relationship, some of the flaws in your person are more evident, and you're sharing deeper personal truths. Teenager stage: You're both starting to fight for a little independence in the relationship. One or both of you don't want to spend all of your time together anymore, which can be scary. Adult stage: You know each other very well. You both are bringing wisdom to the relationship, learning each other's habits, working around personal rituals, and spending more energy pulling each other closer rather than pushing away.   Progressing through these different phases can be challenging but they are a great opportunity to learn more about your partner and discover new things about yourself.   Strategies to help you fight fairly   No matter how mad you are, try not to say anything you can't take back. Once damaging things have been said, it can have lasting effects not only on them personally, but also on your relationship. Bringing up something from the past, name-calling, threats, and an overabundance of ""You"r" statements can make that person shut down and pull further away from you.   Beth recommends approaching the conversation with "I" statements like:   "I feel…" "I've noticed…" "I want…" "I need…"   By keeping the focus on yourself, your partner will be more receptive to your information rather than immediately closing off. If you feel that you may have already damaged your relationship, it's not too late to repair it! Start by apologizing for any specific things you can think of and then use "I" statements to enter back into the conversation naturally. Acknowledge the issues you discover and commit to making things better.   Conflict resolution skills to turn a fight around quickly   Beth and David both agree that having a quick turnaround is an essential skill in conflict resolution. Understanding each other's conflict styles can help you notice cues that you may be nearing the end of the argument. If things are getting too heated and you're afraid damaging statements could be said, take a brief pause so you can both calm down. After the break, try to get to the resolution quickly rather than focusing back on the argument.   BONUS: Beth suggests an exercise to help you develop details for your fight plan or discover your conflict style. Take a few minutes to write down three things you could do in an argument with your partner to make things WORSE.   Now, write down three things you could do to make your argument BETTER! These three things can help you turn a fight around and start reaching a resolution more quickly.   When should you develop your fight plan?   Open up the conversation for developing your fight plan when things are good between you and your partner. Ideally, pick a time after a recent argument so everything is fresh. Create the parameters of your conflict and share some triggers that you both would like to avoid. Designate a white flag item like a touch or word that could diffuse the fight if it gets too heated.   When a fight plan is in place, your arguments will have less energy, they'll resolve quickly, and you will grow closer to each other. Set a goal with your partner to become GREAT fighters and see how your conflict resolution skills improve!   Connect with Beth Hanishewski   Beth Hanishewski’s Website: http://www.mindsetcoaching.com/ Beth on Instagram: @mindsetcoaching Follow Beth on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mindsetcoaching Follow Beth on Twitter: @BethHanishewski   Connect with David   Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/davidtswood/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/davidtswood Twitter - https://twitter.com/DavidTSWood1

Episode 4 - Learn the Number 1 Questions to ask your Lover to Transform your Relationship.

It doesn't matter what type of partnership you're in; you should ask relationship questions regularly to keep your lines of communication open and healthy. From business partnerships to personal connections, there will always be obstacles that you will need to conquer together. There is a reason you chose your person as a partner, but do you ever take the time to remember what that reason is?    In this video conversation, Beth Hanishewski, the swiss-army knife of coaching, and David T. S. Wood share some powerful questions you should ask yourself and your partner. Beth and David are both experts in the field of relationship repair, and they aren't afraid to get real about the root of the issue. If you're ready to move your relationships to the next level and transform your partnerships for the better, this episode is a must-see!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Transforming your relationship Figuring out where your relationship is on a scale of 10–0 Understanding what the rating you assigned to your relationship means Taking action today to work on getting your partnership to a 10 Remembering WHY you chose that person as a partner Two powerful questions you can ask to generate meaningful, open communication   How to rate your relationship on a scale of 10–0   As a seasoned relationship expert, Beth always challenges her clients to take a moment to rate the relationship in question on a scale of 10–0.   10 means that your relationship couldn't get any better 0 means that it couldn't get any worse   Take a moment to choose a number for your relationship before you read on.   If you chose 10–9–8…   You're happy, for the most part. You have some bad moments, but they don't have a lasting impact. You may experience a temporary loss of connection, intimacy, or in how you speak to each other. If you fight or argue, it doesn't even occur to you that you will leave the partnership. No REAL threats to the relationship.   If you scored 7–6...   You may find yourself saying, "I love them… BUT…". There is one big reason or "but" that you're struggling to move past. Most of your issues have been resolved, except that "but".   If you rated your partnership a 5–4...   You WANT better your situation. The relationship is threatened, and you're considering leaving. You may have been contemplating leaving for a while. There isn't just one issue, but several that you’re concerned about.   But if you rated your relationship a 3–2–1–0...   This area is the most dangerous. You may have completely given up on your relationship already. You may not even care to put in the work to fix your situation.   What can you do to start building your score?   Both Beth and David agree that it's best to work on getting your relationship to a 10 before making any drastic decisions on your partnership. While you can start to do the work on your own, it's best to include your partner by inviting them to be part of your process. Calmly and respectfully open the conversation to see if there is something you can both agree to do for 30-days. If they don't agree, commit to making the change yourself. Chances are, your partner will see a drastic change in you, which could allow you to approach the subject again in the future.   Remind yourself why you love that person, and why you chose them in the first place rather than focusing on the issue. Try to notice the little things you appreciate about them, instead of the things they do that bother you. Taking these steps to change your mindset will help you close the gap to reach that perfect 10.   The two most important relationship questions you can ask   Beth mentions two easy relationship questions that you can ask today to start generating a conversation with your partner. Even if you aren't sure where the issue is, this can gauge what areas your partner may see problems:   What do I do that pushes you away? What do I do that pulls you closer?   Did you notice the focus of these questions? These allow your partner to share some things that THEY need from YOU, rather than opening up the conversation with things YOU need from THEM. This gentle opening can make even the most apprehensive partners feel open to sharing with you. Plus, chances are, once they've answered your questions, they will probably ask the same of you!   Whoever it is that you choose to do this work with, you chose them for a reason. Even if it's someone you decide to part with, David suggests that you should do your best to only say positive things about them to people you both know. If you're able to do this, you may be able to end your relationship on good terms and continue having a positive relationship with them for years to come.     Connect with Beth Hanishewski   Beth Hanishewski’s Website: http://www.mindsetcoaching.com/ Beth on Instagram: @mindsetcoaching Follow Beth on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mindsetcoaching Follow Beth on Twitter: @BethHanishewski

Episode #3 Lifestyle Design, Joyful Living, And Rejecting Regret, with Lisa DeMayo

One of the greatest benefits of the Network Marketing opportunity is the way it can facilitate and empower lifestyle design. If that’s a term you’re not familiar with, you’re in for a treat. This video conversation features successful businesswoman and lifestyle design coach, Lisa DeMayo. Her story is one of difficulty and hardship turned to joy and she shares some of the pivotal moments in her story during this conversation with David T.S. Wood.   Take a deep breath. Stop to intentionally open your heart and mind. If you come to this conversation in that posture, you’ll be inspired, challenged, and equipped to begin taking steps that help you design the life you want.   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   What it means to engage in lifestyle design Developing personal adaptability [4:37] Learning to use hardship to your advantage [11:01] How to design your life as you want in every circumstance [16:20] Making truthful statements that empower your life [24:01] Lisa’s first steps to designing her life and changing what she didn’t want [30:34] How to choose joy and deal with sadness and loss [36:56] Finding a way to take extreme responsibility for your life [43:21] Releasing the burden of shame and guilt [50:45] Hearing Lisa’s challenge to you for moving your life forward [53:30]   People who choose to view hard things as opportunities will flourish   As Lisa says during this conversation, “None of us gets out of life alive.” We know how the story ends so if we are wise, we’ll take the time to figure out how to make the most of the time we have. Both Lisa and David have learned—through both joyous and extremely painful circumstances—that everything that comes into our lives is an opportunity to grow and ultimately flourish.   Lisa specifically points out that the hard times, though we typically want to avoid them or escape them as soon as possible, are some of the best opportunities for designing the life we want. They open a doorway to self-discovery, growth, and resilience like nothing else.   Learn to design your life in the midst of every circumstance   When we talk about lifestyle design what we’re addressing is the inner compulsion all of us have to live the kind of life we want to live. We want to have a sense of control, a sense of direction over the course of our own lives. The good news is that while we can’t control the circumstances that come into our lives, we can control the way we respond to them.   Did you get that? Our RESPONSE to the events of our lives is what has the greatest impact on the overall direction of our lives. What is the best response?   Lisa says a “can do” attitude that sees the difficulty as an opportunity is vital. Use the circumstances presented to you as tools to provide further insight into your own thinking, feeling, and default responses, and make intentional positive changes to what you find. Little by little you can chip away at old habits of thinking and feeling that have been unproductive and unhelpful. Keep listening… Lisa provides a challenging exercise you can implement immediately.   Lisa’s challenge: Take the first steps to free yourself from your limitations   Most of us know it, but don't care to admit that we have emotional baggage, limiting beliefs, and bad habits that keep us stuck, generate consistent patterns of inner frustration, and push us to the brink. Lisa’s recommended exercise (shared near the end of the conversation) is aimed at helping you take the first steps out of that place.   STEP ONE: Take out a notebook or journal and begin brain-dumping all of your “emotional stuckness.” Don’t stop, keep writing, get it all out. It may take as much as a few hours but will be well worth the investment. As you do this, express every pain, every regret, every resentment, every lack of forgiveness, every bitterness that you feel. You need to get them out of your system and onto paper so you can see them and admit that they exist.   And don’t worry… you will burn this list or shred it to tiny bits once you’re done. Nobody else ever has to see it.   STEP TWO: After you’ve admitted what’s on the page (and have destroyed it as a symbol of leaving it all behind you), compose a letter to your younger self. Give yourself advice, based on what you’ve discovered in the previous exercise, about how to live a better life, how to deal with hurts and pains more effectively, and how to embrace attitudes that empower your life rather than inhibit it.   Lisa explains the exercise in detail, so be sure you take the time to invest in your own lifestyle design by watching the video of this great conversation!   Resources & People Mentioned   Brene Brown Zig Ziglar Dale Carnagie Napoleon Hill Tony Robbins - course: Date With Destiny   Connect with Lisa DeMayo   Lisa DeMayo on Instagram: @lisademayo Follow Lisa on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LisaDeMayoCoach Lisa’s book: The Art Of Getting What You Want

Network Marketing Critical Skills with Emily Vavra #2 Part Series - Episode 2 Six through Nine

Achieving network marketing success isn't easy. Top earners in this industry have done so through countless hours studying, thousands of calls, and lots of hard work. In this second-deep dive into practical business strategies, David T. S. Wood and his guest Emily Vavra, share their secrets to success and everything they've discovered along the way. Anyone can be a successful network marketer. Take the time to build your contact list, talk to people regularly, and share your vision. There is no better time to build on your skills or start assembling your team than NOW. Read on for these advanced tips to help you reach your goals and see the drastic difference they can make in your life and business. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... Learning how to help someone get started in network marketing Using events to increase retention and build unity within your team Stopping the fear of your current situation so it doesn't hold you back Figuring out how to change your circumstances so you can focus on your vision Speaking your goals into existence Learning how to use social media to grow your business Step one: Getting a new person started When it comes to determining how to start your working relationship with a new person, you should begin by asking questions to figure out what goals you can help them achieve. Once you've gotten to know their motivations and needs, you can figure out where they will fit in your business, either as a customer or as a part of your team. By introducing a checklist early on, you can have a clear and thorough understanding of what they are hoping to gain by using the products or joining your business. A handy checklist to use with new people who have shown interest is: Invite them to attend a meeting or watch a video Schedule a follow-up call or meeting Have them fill out the new associate interview Talk with them to find out what they need Review the interview and take note of their goals and apprehensions Welcome them to your group publicly and introduce them to your team Each time you touch base with that new person, recommend resources that they can review that may help them overcome their apprehensions. Also, keep the door open to everything else you have to offer while supporting them where THEY want to be. Step two: Encouraging event attendance Events in network marketing are EVERYTHING! They ignite excitement in each person who attends and gives them valuable tools to progress them through the business. It opens up more opportunities for finding inspiration and relatable success stories that can help them overcome obstacles. Whether it's a major, companywide event or a personal get together with your team, be consistent with YOUR participation and encouragement. If you do your part to get people to attend and you offer options consistently, they will most likely start to show up for you over time. Don't let your current situation hold you back from growing your business. Everyone starts somewhere so find ways to move past those fears and focus on your vision and where you WANT to be. With the right mentality and work ethic your situation is going to change, so focus on that instead! Step eight: How to promote a vision of network marketing success Do you have a clear vision of where you want to go with your company? Ask yourself these questions to find and cast your perfect vision: What do you see happening in the future? How long are you committed to pursuing this vision? What are the specific steps in your plan? Why do you want this person to be part of your vision? How do your goals align and how can you help each other! Learning how to shift your vision and unite your goals is a crucial step to keep you moving forward when things get tough. Success doesn't come easily or quickly but having a clear vision will give you direction and focus. Additionally, as you achieve your goals your vision will become your testimony. Take a few minutes, right now, to rate yourself on a scale from 1-10 in the following areas: What is your belief in the products? What is your belief in the compensation plan? What's your belief in network marketing? What's your belief in Isagenix, specifically? What is your belief in yourself? Do you believe that you can become a successful network marketer? Rate yourself honestly and as you cast your vision, work to get yourself to a 10 in every area. Focus on any areas with a low score to make sure you completely understand them. Once it's clear to other people that YOU believe in these areas, then THEY will start to believe too! Step nine: How to utilize social media effectively Social media is a free tool so if you aren't using it, start now! Emily cautions you not to spam your current friends and connections with your network marketing pitches or promotional posts. What you SHOULD do is showcase who you are and what you represent. The people you meet along the way will want to be able to look you up and see if your values align with theirs. Pick 3-5 things that you are passionate about and focus on posting about those things regularly. Emily's top ten tips for effective social media usage are: Be yourself and speak from the heart Don't force things or make everything you post a sales pitch Try to post things that are helpful or inspiring Post consistent content people can rely on Be a content creator, not just a consumer Share your routine and what products you use daily Post regularly and consistently Check-in with yourself regularly to see how your social media usage is influencing your mood Take a break from social media when you need to and don't feel guilty about it! Consider pre-recording posts so you have content to share when you don't want to be active Utilize the tools around you and figure out what would work best for your situation. There is plenty of business out there, so put in the work to get it!

Network Marketing Success BASIC Principles, with Emily Vavra, Ep #1

Emily Vavra’s key to unlocking network marketing success is focusing on helping people rather than making a sale. She walks through her life, looking for the next great connection to see how she can help THEM achieve greatness. Learning how to love people and taking the time to understand their motivations and struggles can help you determine when to take action and when to be a friend.   People don’t want to enter into a conversation if they think you’re only interested in getting them to buy something. Many new network marketers quickly burn themselves out because they focus on selling the products, meeting their financial goals, and rattling off data and statistics to an already apprehensive audience. In this video conversation, Emily and her host, David T. S. Wood, discuss fundamental skills you can start practicing immediately to revive or jumpstart your business! Plus, Emily shares an excellent business starting exercise you can do from anywhere!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in...   Helping people grow and succeed in life and business Finding new people to add to your list of contacts Discovering how to invite people, so they want to say, “Yes!” Presenting information about your business in an exciting and successful way Learning when and how many times to follow-up Knowing when to act to close a sale   Skill one: Finding people to add to your contact list   How many people are on your contact list? Do you HAVE a contact list? One of the first challenges Emily got from her mentor was to sit down for two-minutes and make a list of everyone that she could contact to share her business. She suggests starting with the first five people you would be most comfortable talking to about the company so you can gain experience.   Be conscious of the people you interact with everyday who could be a great addition to your team, or who could benefit from what your business has to offer. However, these are people that you will spend a lot of time with so be conscious of that fact when you invite them to your team.   Exercise: Take two minutes to start your list now! Write down anyone you know who you think could benefit from your services or products. Keep your list updated, so you always have new people to contact.   Skill two: Inviting people to listen and learn   There are two great ways to invite people to consider your business:   The Direct Ask: You can make it clear that you know you’re being direct by saying, “I know this is forward, but…,” or “Have you considered…?” It’s essential to state WHY you want to ask them so urgently.   The Gentle Ask: The “If I… would you…” statement allows you to share information to get their opinion. “I thought of you because…” statements focus on the specific reasons they stood out to you.   When you’re inviting, embrace the “no.” Most people won’t be interested until they’re ready, so don’t let the fear of “no” stop you from inviting them again when the time is right.   Skill three: Presenting information   When you present information about different products and services work to make the information personal and unique. Ask them questions to learn what they may want or need but give them plenty of time to talk and open up on their terms. Use the products available, so you have a testimony to share when the time comes.   To do:   Be authentic Keep the meetings brief (30-minutes or less) Make sure someone can duplicate your meeting (Use the tools provided)   Skill four: Follow-up calls   Find creative ways to stay in touch with the person so they don’t forget about you, but don’t mention your business every time. If you aren’t pushy and you maintain a friendship, you may be surprised when a “No,” turns into a “Not now,” and eventually a, “Yes!”   Your information won’t be important to people UNTIL it’s important to them! Don’t take it personally; stay positive and supportive of that person indefinitely.   Skill five: Closing a sale for Network Marketing Success   People want you to help them better their lives but they all come to the table with different goals and apprehensions. Make sure they have enough information to make a decision, reassure them of a money-back guarantee, and offer them the BEST option available. If you ASK for the sale, you might get it!   Practice makes perfect. Rehearse your pitch anytime you have the chance and get comfortable with “No.” Find a language that is comfortable for you and be true to your authentic self. Your story is unique to you so don’t be afraid to create YOUR path to success!
