The feeling of being in a rut is mortifying, even if things aren't actually going too badly.  You feel like you are in a rut when you realize a sudden stop in your growth.  This will often happen soon after something "good" happens, like a promotion at work, or the purchase of a new home.  This past week, my wife and I decided to liquidate everything we have and hit the road for the foreseeable future.  Why?  Because despite what may seem like a lot of winning, we began to feel as though we were not growing.  We have been seeing the same results every day, and it is time for that to change.

COMMITTING OVER QUITTING: The Simplest Advice to Improve Anybody's Results, with Jeramiah Solven - Be the Leader EP77
Let me ask you a question.  When is the last time that you quit something? Let me ask you another question.  What was the reason that you quit?  When it comes to the reasons for quitting anything, it's hard to really even say if and when is the right time to quit.  What I can tell you is that, more often and not, quitting is not truly justified.  Quitting is what holds people back, and it has only become more apparent over time that so many people will quit on their goals before they even start working toward them!  That's what we are talking about in today's episode.  We are going to help you understand the importance of following through with what you say you are going to do, while also giving some insights on when might be the appropriate time to quit.  Ultimately, you want to make sure that you are not building up your "quitting muscles" but you are building up your "winning muscles" instead.

One of the few things that we truly cannot control in life is the way that other people act and feel. We may be able to influence them, but we cannot control them.  Everyone who sees success in one area of their life or another will have to deal with critics or "haters" somewhere along their journey, and while some might say that you should just ignore the haters, we think that there is a better alternative.  Instead, you should love your critics.  Use their criticism as fuel to take your growth to the next level.

NO MORE PITY: Coming Out of the Hard Times on Top, with Jeramiah Solven - Be the Leader EP53
During the Holocaust, Viktor Frankl discovered his concept of logotherapy, which explains one of the driving forces behind those that survived being victims during this time.  In short, he found that those who were able to find a purpose or meaning to live for beyond the end in sight were the ones that had the ability to pull themselves out of the tragic events of the Holocaust alive.  On the other hand, those that only had their focus on the end of the tragedy, but nothing beyond that, did not make it through.  This concept of logotherapy applies to all of us in different aspects of our lives.  In order to make it through hard times, one of the best things that you can do is find what is meaningful to you. It will be the strongest motivation that you have to keep pushing forward.  If your focus goes beyond the finish line, rather than on the finish line, you have a much better shot at coming out of the other side on top.

This past week marked 19 years since the tragic events that occurred in America on September 11, 2001. After the attacks, every single person in America was changed for good. Some of us were inspired to join the military, to serve this country, in lieu of 9/11. Others have decided to step up and become better leaders, whether that be in business, in their family, or in some other way. 9/11 is an example of an event that inspired massive amounts of action. It has been said that everything we do, every move we make, is either to move ourselves away from pain, or toward pleasure. Our decisions run deeper than that though, and one particular source of pain stands out among the rest. That is regret. Regret is the number one source of inspiration for action, but oftentimes we wait until it’s too late to act, because that is when the sense of regret is at it’s strongest. This episode will change the way that you look at regret, and will have you finding ways to be fully prepared for the life that is ahead of you. Minimizing your regret in the long run. But using it to fuel your fire right now.

VIOLENCE OF ACTION, with Jeramiah Solven - Be The Leader EP3
In a fire fight, you don't want to KIND OF WIN, you want to DOMINATE. Why then, do most people not attack their goals with the same mindset? Let's be honest, do you want to DOMINATE or do you just want to KIND OF win? Are you COMMITTED to your goals or simply INTERESTED in them? There's a big difference between going all in, and doing JUST enough to win.  If we want to create ever lasting success, we have to adopt the strategy of absolute domination, and the solution to REAL winning is VIOLENCE OF ACTION.  VOA means to us UNRESTRICTED FORCE to absolutely destroy your enemy.  In this episode, Jeramiah goes over the concept of VIOLENCE OF ACTION with stories from his time in the military that show what DOMINATING results it can bring.  Be a person of action. VIOLENCE OF ACTION.
