Sometimes we can take on the world and other times we hide in the corner sucking our thumb. Well, maybe that’s just me. The difference? Confidence. What is it? Where does it come from? Can we create or build it? Here’s how those who experience purpose answer those questions.
This is a subject that comes up at our QC Mastermind. When attendees find out they are going to be required to do an 8 minute presentation on the last day, fear strikes the heart of the majority. “I’ve never spoken before”, “I’m not good at it”, “Do I have to?”... all statements and questions we hear. Fast forward 7 weeks and they step up to the platform like a superhero in a cape. What makes the difference? You already know… confidence.
It doesn’t matter that I have been evaluating businesses and the people running them for close to two decades, there’s one thing that always seems to be the first obstacle.
When I agreed to take on a Coaching role with 75+ real estate agents across 3 states, it's best practice for me to touch base with each person and discuss their current state of affairs. Establishing the gap is a primary skill in this work and this week hasn’t been any different. Maybe this is why we naturally hide from a coaching relationship? Nobody wants to know there’s a gap between where they are and where they want to be. If you’re like me, you want the direct path. I’m not really interested in knowing about the chasm between here and there. So what is that first obstacle you ask?

Oh wah ah hah hah hah... (Disturbed reference for those that know). lol
Episode 4 is where we live most of the time when it comes to this process. Getting there is important, but staying there is crippling.
It's what we all talk about having or wanting. It's the key ingredient to getting off our rear and getting into momentum. We all know the feeling...
If you ever get the opportunity to meet Crystal Faile, those are not words you would use to describe someone with her energy and drive. Take a moment and get inspired as she shares her story of why she is so passionate about her work and how she moved herself forward when she found herself in a valley.
Most of us can think of a pivotal day in our lives. For me, it happened the day I woke up in an ambulance, fully restrained and not even knowing how I ended up there. Let me share my story here and how I specifically changed my pattern in life.
