327 – Ben Wood – The Four Agreements – Don Miguel Ruiz – Personal Development Series

Today David has a very special guest; his 14 year old son, Ben. Those of you who tuned in last week, heard David share a very private and emotional moment, when he discovered that his son had started to lie to him. Today David shares more about how they managed to resolve the problem. Ben tells us about a book that he read to better understand the situation, and improve himself and his life. The book is called “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. It is a practical guide to personal freedom; it is about 4 agreements that you need to make with yourself to live a better and happier life. The 4 agreements are: 1) Be impeccable with your word: First with yourself, and then with others. 2) Don’t take anything personally. 3) Don’t make assumptions. 4) Always do your best. David takes Ben through these agreements and asks what he thinks they mean. Ben’s most important take away from this book was: Always tell the truth, no matter what. That sounds like something we’ve been hearing from David himself for quite a while: “Tell the truth all the time with compassion.” Songs: Killer Queen by Queen Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen I Want To Break Free by Queen Another One Bites The Dust by Queen Books: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz The Speed of Trust by Stephen...

326 – Simon Sinek – Why Good Leaders Make You Feel Safe – Personal Development Series

Today’s show is about a very important and deep topic! Today David talks about “Trust” and it’s value, “Truth” and it’s liberating powers.  He talks about the Power of trust to make us feel safe! On that topic, David plays us bits of Simon Sinek’s speeches where he talks about trust and leadership. Simon talks about the military and companies, and explains how “Leadership is a Choice not a Rank!” And what makes people want to follow one person vs. another regardless of their rank and/or authority, only because those are the ones that have “Chosen” to look after the people around them. A trained ethnographer and author of Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, Simon Sinek has held a life-long curiosity for why people and organizations do the things they do. Sinek is an optimist. He believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together. Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” Sinek teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home everyday feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them. He is best known for discovering the Golden Circle and popularizing the concept of Why, the purpose, cause or belief that drives every one of us. The Golden Circle is a naturally occurring pattern, grounded in the biology of human decision making, that explains why we are inspired by some people, leaders, messages and organizations over others. Sinek shares his optimism with all who will listen. He speaks around the globe and has commented for local and national press, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Houston Chronicle, FastCompany, CMO Magazine, NPR and BusinessWeek. Sinek is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post, writes his own blog, simonsinek.com and makes regular guest appearances on MSNBC’s Your Business, among others.

323 – What Does Home Mean To You? (Sir Richard Branson) – Personal Development Series

You don’t want to miss this show! Today, David talks, tenderly, about a great man who has been an inspiration in his life. A man who wants for nothing, and can chose anywhere in the whole world to live, but has chosen a remote island that can house only 40 people, to call home. A man who brings out a sense of honor and beauty in everything he touches. The man is Sir Richard Branson and the story is about his home, his private island, Necker. Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson (born 18 July 1950) is an English business magnate and investor. He is best known as the founder of Virgin Group, which comprises more than 400 companies. At the age of sixteen his first business venture was a magazine called Student. In 1970, he set up a mail-order record business. In 1972, he opened a chain of record stores, Virgin Records, later known as Virgin Megastores. Branson’s Virgin brand grew rapidly during the 1980s, as he set up Virgin Atlantic and expanded the Virgin Records music label. According to the Forbes 2012 list of billionaires, Branson is the sixth richest citizen of the United Kingdom, with an estimated net worth of US$4.6 billion. David reminds you again to crank up the dial on your life and squeeze the juice out of every second.

321 – Find & Follow your PASSION with Mike Johnston

To be honest with you, when I heard that I would be interviewing a drum teacher I was not 100% sure whether it would be the kind of show that was suited for The Kickass Life.  What happened next blew my mind. Mike Johnston’s story is so incredibly powerful and his passion oozes out of every word. This is a story of how one man went against the odds and gave up the “high life” as a musician traveling the world, to follow his passion for teaching, and how his passion has turned into a multi-million dollar enterprise that truly inspires others. This was one of those interviews where the end comes way too quickly,  and I was left wanting more. What’s the little voice in your head whispering? And do you have the courage to listen and then follow the path of your deepest passion? Find out how Mike did just that.

319 – Thandie Newton – ‘Self’ vs. ‘Oneness’ – Personal Development Series

In today’s show David will discuss  Thandie Newton’s TED Talk and how our beliefs that are formed and how we can embrace ‘otherness’  and ‘oneness’ to explore, grow and change and to be our best and live life to its fullest. Thandie and David will discuss: Our ‘oneness’ vs. ‘separateness’ How the ‘self’ that we design, becomes the vehicle through which we experience the world How the ‘self’ and our belief that is designed by others is not our vehicle and not our truth, but is something that we can and should change in order to find a ‘self’ that fits How the ‘otherness’ and the desire to be a part of something affects our mind as we want to fit in How dance and acting gave Thandie insight and the deep insight into other lives and emotions How we never enter into our authentic self when we act out to win the approval of others How ‘race’ simply comes from our desire to create difference How ‘oneness’ becomes possible through awareness and how critical that is to find our purpose and live life at it’s fullest How the lack of ‘self’ is how we find our truest self, authenticity, and purpose Quote for today: “I had a degree from Cambridge and was an actor.  But my life was a car crash.” – Thandie Newton Links for today: http://www.ted.com/talks/thandie_newton_embracing_otherness_embracing_myself Songs today: Your Song – Elton John Candle In the Wind – Elton John I’m Still Standing – Elton John...

289 – Successful Body Language

David discusses Amy Cuddy’s research and TED presentation on body language. Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other peoples perceptions and even our own body chemistry simply by changing our body position. Why you should listen Amy Cuddy wasn’t supposed to become a successful scientist. In fact, she wasn’t even supposed to finish her undergraduate degree. Early in her college career, Cuddy suffered a severe head injury in a car accident, and doctors said she would struggle to fully regain her mental capacity and finish her undergraduate degree. But she proved them wrong. Today, Cuddy is a professor and researcher at Harvard Business School, where she studies how nonverbal behavior and snap judgments affect people from the classroom to the boardroom. And her training as a classical dancer (another skill she regained after her injury) is evident in her fascinating work on “power posing” — how your body position influences others and even your own brain.   Useful Links: TED Presentation   Todays Quotes:  “What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear a word that you’re saying” “Communication and feelings are 55% body language, 38% tone and only 7% words”   Today’s Songs: Rock that Body – The Black Eyed Peas Your Body – Christina Aguilera B.O.D.Y – VIXX Your Body – Pretty Ricky Your Body Is a Wonderland – John Mayer  ...

237 – 600 Seconds – Don Miguel Ruiz

Today, David explores Miguel’s work from his International best seller The Four Agreements and challenges you to keep them all week and see how it impacts your life In the photo for todays show you will see Don Miguel Ruiz and his amazing Life Partner, Mike Dooley, Lisa Nicols and of course David hanging out having ton’s of fun.  This is a testament of the joy that can be in your life by following the Four Agreements. Todays Book:  The Four Agreements – Don Miguel Ruiz Songs: The Doors – Riders of the Storm The Doors – Light My Fire   The Four Agreements Summary:  1. Be Impeccable with Your Word Speak with integrity.  Say only what you mean.  Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others.  Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. Impeccable means “without sin” and a sin is something you do or believe that goes against yourself.  It means not speaking against yourself, to yourself or to others.  It means not rejecting yourself.  To be impeccable means to take responsibility for yourself, to not participate in “the blame game.” Regarding the word, the rules of “action-reaction” apply.  What you put out energetically will return to you.  Proper use of the word creates proper use of energy, putting out love and gratitude perpetuates the same in the universe.  The converse is also true. Impeccability starts at home.  Be impeccable with yourself and that will reflect in your life and your relationships with others.  This agreement can help change thousands of other agreements, especially ones that create fear instead of love.   2. Don’t Take Anything Personally Nothing others do is because of you.  What others say and do is a projection of their own dream.  When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering. We take things personally when we agree with what others have said.  If we didn’t agree, the things that others say would not affect us emotionally.  If we did not care about what others think about us, their words or behavior could not affect us. Even if someone yells at you, gossips about you, harms you or yours, it still is not about you!  Their actions and words are based on what they believe in their personal dream. Our personal “Book of Law” and belief system makes us feel safe.  When people have beliefs that are different from our own, we get scared, defend ourselves, and impose our point of view on others.  If someone gets angry with us it is because our belief system is challenging their belief system and they get scared.  They need to defend their point of view.  Why become angry, create conflict, and expend energy arguing when you are aware of this?   3. Don’t Make Assumptions Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want.  Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama.  With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life. When we make assumptions it is because we believe we know what others are thinking and feeling.  We believe we know their point of view, their dream.  We forget that our beliefs...

235 – Steven Covey, The 13 Habits of HIGH Trust

Posted by on 1:59 pm in 30 Minute Shows, Podcasts | 0 comments

235 – Steven Covey, The 13 Habits of HIGH Trust

David is inspired after meeting Steven M R Covey and discussing his Bestselling book ‘The Speed of Trust” to share the 13 principles. Listen in and enjoy as he add his own ‘Kickass’ spin to the habits and how they can affect us in our personal and professional life. David also shares a recent TED talk (See Link below) on the subject of being trustworthy. The Band today is COLDPLAY (See Links Below) Quote if the Day: “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” Book: The Speed of Trust by Steven M. R. Covey 1. Talk Straight Say what is on your mind. Don’t hide your agenda. When we talk straight we tell the truth and leave the right impression. Most employees don’t think their bosses communicate honestly. This creates a trust tax. This causes speed to go down and costs to go up. We spend entirely too much time trying to decipher truth from spin. Straight talk needs to be paired with tact. There is no excuse for being so blunt you hurt feelings and destroy relationships. Tact is a skill that can be learned and when coupled with straight talk, will build relationship trust. 2. Demonstrate Respect The principle behind demonstrating respect is the value of the individual. The behavior is acting out the Golden Rule. Almost every culture and religion recognizes the value of the Golden Rule. We should treat people the way we want to be treated.   Our actions should show we care. They should be sincere. People will notice if an action is motivated by a lesser reason or an impure value. Respect is demonstrated in the “little” things we do daily. 3. Create Transparency Tell the truth in a way that can be verified. Transparency is based on principles of honesty, openness, integrity and authenticity. It is based on doing things in the open where all can see. Part of transparency is sharing information. If ever in question, err on the side of disclosure. Rollin King, founder of Southwest Airlines states, “We adopted the philosophy that we wouldn’t hide anything, not any of our problems, from the employees.” That’s transparency. 4. Right Wrongs To right a wrong is much more than apologizing. It involves making restitution. With customers it may include that free gift along with the sincere apology. We have all been to a restaurant where we received an apology along with a free dessert or a coupon for something free the next time we eat there. It is the principle of going the extra mile.  Some will justify their wrongful behavior while others will try covering up their misdeeds. Both of these attempts will not only fail to make deposits in trust ac- counts, but are certain to make substantial withdrawals. 5. Show Loyalty There are many ways to show loyalty to your employees. Covey focuses on two. First, give credit to others. As a leader you need to give credit to the individuals responsible for success. A leader should never take credit for the hard work of others. Just as bad is the one who gives credit to someone in their presence, but then down-plays their contribution to others. Giving credit to others is the right thing to do. It will...
