Season Finale

9/16/2021
Hello listeners! It's been a great season, from February to September, and this has been a really fun process for me - starting a podcast and learning how to do it. It was also a major lesson in consistency. I can't wait to start it all again next year - more guests, and more of everything else you've been hearing the past 8 months. During the break, I will still be posting - not consistently, not every Monday and Thursday. But if I meet someone amazing that I want to interview, I'm going...

When I was with the "wrong" people, not only was my mindset wrong, but it was seriously affecting my desires, my goals, my mission, and my vision for my life. It all works together. Any moment you choose, you can begin looking for the exact people you need to stop procrastinating and start getting what you want out of life. Whether they are friends, mentors, coaches, or mastermind groups, it is well worth finding the people who will carry you with them. Buy Me A Coffee! The Ideas and...

Just Two Epiphanies Can Change Your Entire Life Direction

9/9/2021
HOW. The most important question you can ask yourself when you run up against a stone wall. How do I get this done? How do I get through this? How do I learn this skill? How can I run this business successfully? How do I meet the right people? How do I talk to those people? The other word is UNTIL. As Jim Rohn always asked, how long should it take a baby to learn how to walk? How long would you give your average baby? How long before you said, “okay, never mind. It’s just not gonna happen.”...

"No" Is A Powerful Tool with Executive Coach John Chilkotowsky

8/26/2021
Choose what you focus on! If you say yes to anything, you are saying no to a lot of other things. There are only a handful of personal development principles, and when we work on any of these, we are working on the same things that the top executives and leaders are working on in their own lives. Things like focus, making sure you can say no to the good things, so you you can say yes to the great things, and how to find out where your strengths are. I’m excited to have executive coach John...

How To Choose Your Best Self With Author and Leadership Coach Eric Winters

8/14/2021
The Ideas and Concepts Mastermind (Facebook Group) SecondMix.net matt@secondmix.net This is a special day - something I’ve never quite done before. On Thursday, I did a book jam episode on the book Swipe Right On Your Best Self by author and leadership coach Eric Winters, and today I got to interview the author himself. In our brief conversation, he covers so much ground - self-leadership, the normality of anxiety, taking things one day and one step at a time, positive thinking, and so...

Book Jam: Swipe Right On Your Best Self by Eric Winters

8/12/2021
The Ideas and Concepts Mastermind (Facebook Group) SecondMix.net matt@secondmix.net Book Jam - A review, summary, of Eric Winter's book Swipe Right On Your Best Self. It’s so hard to categorize life in a way that makes sense. Life is too big to fit into a little container that we can study and understand it. That’s why there are so many books on the topic – too many for me to read in a lifetime, though I’ll still try. I like to study the way authors categorize things in their own minds...

Grace and the Right to be Angry

The Ideas and Concepts Mastermind (Facebook Group) SecondMix.net matt@secondmix.net I find as I go through my day that there are times I’m not feeling at my best, and I begin to look for reasons why. I will scan my environment hoping to find some reason to be a victim. When my eyes are open for a right to be angry, I will find one. A big part of mindset work is dealing with this part of us that searches for the negative, searches for victimhood, and searches for ways to take offense. But...

Book Jam: Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport

8/5/2021
The Ideas and Concepts Mastermind (Facebook Group) SecondMix.net matt@secondmix.net When I bought the book Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport, it was based on a complete misunderstanding of what the term digital minimalism meant. I had my life cluttered up with digital files all over – my computer, cloud drives, files for everything. Saved articles, ideas, and so much more - my online life was far more cluttered than I allowed my home to be. I’ll admit – I was an online hoarder. And I...

But something very rare happened to me during my time reading – it’s a book about vulnerability, and I hit a section that absolutely exposed me – she nailed a problem that I had been dealing with for a long, long time, and gave a name to it. She calls it Rehearsing Tragedy. It’s something I...
