Dr. Tracey Jones brings in a unique guest to talk about this and other leadership concerns in this episode. Tricia Benn is the Chief Community Officer of the C-Suite Network and the General Manager of The Hero Club, an invitation-only membership organization for CEOs, founders, and investors.

Why would you read the story of a lazy, drunk, salesman? The greatest challenge in your time at an organization is providing enough value to justify their keeping you. The best way to show this as shown in “Bradford, You’re Fired!” is firing the poor qualities of yourself and instead encouraging your super-self.

And, Bradford—I’d give that man so much work to do that he would have no time to loaf on his job, no time to find temptations, and no time for temptations to find him. I’d make work for him—to keep him going hard. Then if there was anything in him, it would crop out.” “I have every confidence in you. It’s a great thing to have the confidence of the boss. I’m going to be a hard boss, for I have your interest at heart. If you know this, and realize this, I believe you will succeed. After all, the success of any business depends on the boss and his relations with his employees.” “And in this story of my rise, you may find the secret of success. If you have not succeeded, it is your own fault.” “You are the boss of your self, of the Super-self, the inner man who waits to serve you.”

Forget the weapons that destroy yourself or craft the tools that build your earthly and heavenly mansion. Thought and character are one. Until thought is linked with purpose there is no intelligent accomplishment. A man should conceive of a legitimate purpose in his heart, and set out to accomplish it. He should make this purpose the centralizing point of his thoughts. A man only begins to be a man when he ceases to whine and revile, and commences to search for the hidden justice which regulates his life. You cannot travel within and stand still without. You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration.

He was Scotch, but he wasn’t too Scotch. He let his partners share in his profits and he made more millionaires than any other man who has ever lived. For he declared it was a disgrace to die rich.” “The fundamental idea of the gospel of wealth is that surplus wealth should be considered as a sacred trust to be administered by those into whose hands it falls, during their lives, for the good of the community.” “Wealth is a curse to young men, and poverty a blessing.” “Giving the one tenth—the tithe—is easy. The true disciple of the gospel of wealth has to pass far beyond that stage.” “The real question is not how much we ought to give away, but how much we dare retain for our own gratification.” “There is really no true charity except that which will help others to help themselves, and place within the reach of the aspiring the means to climb.” “Common humanity impels us to provide for the actual wants of human beings— to see, through our poor laws, that none die of starvation, and to provide comfortable shelter, clothing, and instruction, which should, however, always be dependent upon work performed.”

Episode 68 – Acres of Diamonds – Talkin Tremendous
Acres of Diamonds was the most requested speech of Russell H. Conwell, who was known as the penniless millionaire. This famous speech helped countless individuals come into the knowledge of the meaning of true wealth and how to attain it without getting sidetracked by selfishness or greed. Tune in today to hear about the brilliancy found within the pages of Acres of Diamonds. Links: Acres of Diamonds https://tremendousleadership.com/products/acres-of-diamonds-life-changing-classics-volume-v Tremendous Leadership https://tremendousleadership.com/ Life-Changing Classics https://tremendousleadership.com/collections/life-changing-classics Quotes from Acres of Diamonds by Russell Conwell: I know I am right; that the men and women sitting here, who found it difficult perhaps to buy a ticket to this lecture or gathering to-night, have within their reach “acres of diamonds,” opportunities to get largely wealthy. I say that you ought to get rich, and it is your duty to get rich. “Oh,” but says some young man here to-night, “I have been told all my life that if a person has money he is very dishonest and dishonorable and mean and contemptible.” My friend, that is the reason why you have none, because you have that idea of people. Money is power, and you ought to be reasonably ambitious to have it. You ought because you can do more good with it than you could without it. While we should sympathize with God’s poor—that is, those who cannot help themselves—let us remember there is not a poor person in the United States who was not made poor by his own shortcomings, or by the shortcomings of someone else. The man who says, “I cannot carry my religion into business” advertises himself either as being an imbecile in business, or on the road to bankruptcy, or a thief, one of the three, sure. You cannot trust a man with your money who cannot take care of his own. I have no more right to sell goods without making a profit on them than I have to overcharge him dishonestly beyond what they are worth. The moment a young man or woman gets more money than he or she has grown to by practical experience, that moment he has gotten a curse. It is no help to your children to leave them money, but if you leave them education, if you leave them Christian and noble character, if you leave them a wide circle of friends, if you leave them an honorable name, it is far better than that they should have money.

Episode 53 – The Three Therapies (TT)
Everyone should be in therapy. It’s good for the body, mind, and soul. It helps unpack baggage and enables us to deconstruct the mysteries that vex us in life. In The Three Therapies of Life, Charlie “Tremendous” Jones shares practical and applicable ways to heal yourself so you can continue to impact others and change lives. I uncovered this material from a DVD I found. It was recorded back in the ’90s when my father was in his heyday (which was technically every day). In this message, he spoke to an audience of fellow speakers and presenters at the National Speakers Association (NSA). His words rang truer to my ears and heart than they ever had before. I guess I needed some “Tremendous” therapy….

This will help them see with their heart what they heard with their ear. If you’re going to tell people something to their face and it involves their feelings, you better go to their heart and help them see. I love to see where I’m wrong. You love to see where you’re wrong. But isn’t it horrible to have to hear you’re wrong? If you’re going to have a great life while you do a great job, you need to learn how to laugh at your failures. Laughing at your failures doesn’t mean you like to fail. It means if you’re not learning how to laugh and build on your heartaches, you’ll never do much. You see, if you’re going to be serious, you’d better learn how to make things lighter because they’re carrying a heavy enough load already without you burdening them more. The first mark of greatness is thankfulness. The first sign of smallness is thanklessness. If we don’t start learning to be happy when we’ve got nothing, we will never be thankful and happy when we have everything. More is said from a thankful heart than will ever be said with any mind—no matter how brilliant you are. I guess I’m the luckiest person ever born. You know why? When you were born in the ’20s and raised in the early ’30s, you know what you learned? You learned you didn’t have anything but people. There are some things, my dear friend, you don’t get out of by talking to anybody. You’ve got to love through it and sometimes, it never goes away. Other people have to know this and you need to help them know it.

Episode 48 – The Three Decisions (TT)
A tremendous life is built on tremendous decisions. These life decisions have an integrative effect; the choices we make open or close the doors to other opportunities and future possibilities. So we need to make these cornerstone decisions well to build as solid a foundation as possible. We need to make these critical decisions the right way. My father said, “Decision making is a fact of life, just like breathing. That’s what decision making really is.” The key to making the right decisions in life is to make a decision, make it yours, and die by it. Getting these decisions right doesn't necessarily make life more manageable, but it does make it more real, and that's what it's all about.

I believe a job is just like a marriage. I believe if you aren’t learning to love and honor and cherish the job that God gave you, you will not be the complete person God meant you to be. The secret to vocational success is making a decision, making it yours, and living and dying by it. Make a commitment. That’s it. You can’t try out a girl and make a marriage and you can’t try out a company and make a career. You commit your life to a girl and you begin to be her husband, and you start learning to be a husband, and you commit your life to a company and you become an employee and start learning to be an employee. If what you’re going to get supersedes what you’re going to give, you’re in the wrong ballpark. You may as well not work at all and suck your thumb and be a hippie. God never made a job to make a man, He made men to make a job. I’ve always known how easy it is to argue with people and win them over, but I found there’s something you can’t do: you can’t argue with the Bible. It is what it is, take it or leave it. All my life I’d been told what the Bible said, but now that I’d read some of it I found it said about the opposite of what everyone told me it said. And then I realized that all my life I had judged God by the shenanigans and inconsistency of people. I’ve always known you can’t judge somebody by somebody else, but I didn’t apply that standard to God. Well, on that day, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, thank God, by His grace, I realized the Bible was true for me. I didn’t realize it was true for you, I didn’t realize it was true for my wife or kids, that’s their need, that’s their problem; for me I realized the Bible was true.

Just as there are two divisions of a subject, there is one class that is schooling itself and constantly training itself to look upon the dark side of life. And there is another class, made up of people who are consciously or unconsciously, constantly training themselves to look upon the bright side of life. You have to pick which one of them you’re going to be on.” – Booker T. Washington “In the sight of God there is no color line. We want to cultivate a spirit to make us forget there is such a line anywhere. We want to be larger and broader than the people who would oppress us on account of our color.
