The Joy of Service

IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU. Many of us want to have an impact on this world. We want to be a positive force in people’s lives. When we can take a step back and consider how our actions affect others, we can discover the joy in being of service. The way you deal with the people in your business and personal life is essential. Practicing the habit of service will increase the amount of happiness in your life and might also ripple out into your business. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisit a conversation I had with Shep Gordon, where he discussed why he is devoted to serving others. Shep Gordon was the manager behind mega-talents like Alice Cooper, Blondie, and Teddy Pendergrass and knew everyone who is anyone in the music and Hollywood business. He is also credited with creating the role of celebrity chefs through his work, bringing them into the spotlight. His fantastic career has led to both a documentary about his life (directed by Mike Meyers) and a recent memoir written about him, published by Anthony Bourdain. Shep Gordon thinks we could all enjoy the art of service when it comes to life and business. Learn about the power of serving others in Episode 876. In This Episode You Will Learn: The importance of service and focusing on others. (2:50) Building a brand based on happiness. (3:30) The importance of reinventing yourself. (4:30) How he found his passion for life. (4:55) If you enjoyed this episode, check out the video, show notes and more at http://www.lewishowes.com/876

Speak With Your Heart and Create a Big Life with Cleo Wade

LOVE THYSELF. Our wounds often rob us of the life we were meant to live. Many of us live with pain and regret. It becomes a vicious cycle. We have the power to break the cycle. You deserve to heal.

Simplify Your Sales

FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR CLIENT. The world is full of people waiting to bring their incredible ideas to the marketplace. Many entrepreneurs first think about how great their idea is and how rich they’ll get. Before you unleash your masterpiece to the world, take a moment to think about who your product is really for. Entrepreneurs often start with marketing and building business plans. Many don’t make it as far as understanding the outcome they are trying to achieve. Start with the end. Start with the transformation and work backward. Learn to fall in love with your client, not your product. Once you know who you’re creating for and what the outcome will be, everything else will fall into place. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Darren Hardy, one of the most successful entrepreneurs I know.

Jon Dorenbos on Forgiveness and Choosing Happiness

PLAY THE LONG GAME. The cover of a book never tells the entire story. People often assume that successful people have had an easy life. Many, though, have persevered through extremely painful life events. Sometimes it takes accepting your reality in order to move forward. Sometimes it takes forgiveness. You will face setbacks and some of those setbacks might be tragic. Preparation and process can get you far. But sometimes you need to dig even deeper and release yourself from trauma in order to truly move forward. You will be tested. But keep going. Face your reality, follow your dreams and live with purpose. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about turning tragedy into triumph and living out your rock star dreams with an NFL superstar and elite magician: Jon Dorenbos. Jon Dorenbos is a former NFL long snapper football player. He played for the Buffalo Bills, the Tennessee Titans, and the Philadelphia Eagles. He also has a successful career as a magician.

Jocko Willink on Extreme Leadership and The Power of Self-Discipline

BE MILITARY MINDED. A lot of people think that leadership means having all the answers. Barking orders at your team, hoping they stay in line and obey. Pretending to know it all even when you don’t. True leadership is understanding human nature. What if leaders accepted responsibility for any mistakes made on their teams? We have to stop thinking of leadership as a destination. It is a journey where we listen, learn, and strategize with our teams, not for them. It’s not about ego; it’s about humility, balance, accountability, and execution. In today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the art of leadership with a retired Navy SEAL officer and a business consultant: Jocko Willink. Jocko Willink is a decorated retired Navy SEAL officer, author of the book ‘Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win,’ and co-founder of Echelon Front, where he is a leadership instructor, speaker, and executive coach. Jocko spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy SEAL Teams, startin...

Jocko Willink on Extreme Leadership and The Power of Self-Discipline

Fight for Fearlessness

DO YOUR JOB. If you want to be a leader, you must learn how to master your feelings. That is what life requires from leaders in any field.

You must be consistent and practice habits that will improve your confidence. Little by little, your self-confidence will grow, and your fear will take a back seat.

For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation with Captain Dale Dye, where he shared strategies to help eliminate fear and build leadership skills. Captain Dale Dye served in the US Marines for 22 years, he received 3 Purple Hearts for his injuries sustained while in Vietnam, and he dedicated a second career to bringing realistic depictions of war to Hollywood screens.

Brian Grazer: The Art of Human Connection

PEOPLE ARE BETTER THAN WIFI Often, we have talent. We work hard and practice our craft. But something holds us back from reaching our highest potential. Often the things holding us back are fear, doubt, and a lack of self-confidence. Do you have trouble talking to new people in crowded rooms? Are you able to make eye contact when speaking to your peers? Those are some of the things we need to do to improve our relationships. If not, we could be limiting our growth potential. Making better connections is possible, and the rewards are tremendous. It’s up to you. Become more than the work, be the story behind the work. Allow people to connect with that, and there are no limits to what you can accomplish. In today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about how the importance of making personal connections with the author, film producer, and movie legend: Brian Grazer.

Brian Grazer: The Art of Human Connection

BROTHERHOOD OF EMOTIONS

WRESTLING WITH YOUR FEELINGS. Being an elite athlete comes with rewards. People who work hard and dedicate themselves to their craft deserve the fruits of their labor. They train hard and make painful sacrifices to achieve their goals. The money, the fans, the praise, and the accolades come with being the best in your field. But what is the cost? What have you sacrificed to achieve your dream? Outside of your profession, are you able to deal with life and the challenges it presents? If you sacrificed your emotions in the process, you’ll have to figure out a way to make yourself whole again. We must make sure we’re at our best physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Often that takes just as much work as being great at our craft. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Randy Couture about brotherhood in sports, emotional breakdowns, and the psychology of a professional fighter. Randy has fought in 16 title fights and has six UFC title reigns in the Light...
