EP26 Inspiration or Desperation – Choosing your Super Power
Today’s episode is about “choosing your superpower.” What do we mean by choosing your superpower?
We are talking about inspiration or desperation.
It’s nothing fancy. People want to know, “What are the big secrets, what’s this, what’s that? How do I do this, how do I make a change?” I believe that through either inspiration or desperation, you’ll have what you need to keep yourself going through the tough times.
When we are looking to make change in our life, when we are looking to start a business, when we are looking to get into that new relationship, when we’re looking to move from one financial bracket to the next, when we’re looking to buy the new house, when we’re looking to get the new job, to raise our kids in a certain way. Whatever it is that you’re looking to create in your life. For me, it’s a certain life that I want to live. I want to live a certain way and it’s different from the set of skills, the set of information that was passed down to me from my parents and grandparents.
I’m talking about how Amy and I were looking to make a change in the way that we live and in the way that we raise our kids and looking at that, it’s not really that I look at what my parents did and think that there’s anything wrong with it, it’s just not what I want. When you want to make that type of change, you need one of these two superpowers, inspiration or desperation.
Looking at the people that I work with really close, the ones I have mentored one on one to have massive change in their lives, the ones who have gone from confused and lost without direction to becoming empowered and unstoppable to eventually, being in the stories of others. One of the things that we really focus in on in the beginning is inspiration and desperation. One of those two pieces or a combination of the both are necessary in order to make the changes we want in our lives. I n this episode we dive deep into each one of these and give a few examples.
