34 Leadership: Change Management Pain
Are you acquainted with the concept of Painge? No? That’s probably because I made it up! It’s a word that mixes change and pain, because as I’ve journeyed through leadership and through life, I’ve found that the two seem to go hand in hand. Today I want to share insight on how change and pain tie together and what we can do to manage the process on the path to cracking the code of the driven mind. So let’s jump right in and learn the art of Change/Pain Management starting with some stories I’ve witnessed first hand. [00:01 - 03:06] Opening Segment Welcome back!

33 Leadership: Why Did I Do That?
Can you relate to asking yourself that question? My job with my 1:1 clients is to uncover why they do what they do and figure out their subconscious pattern of behaviors. Why you certain things is tied to the way you’ve always done things. And how many of you do things a certain way because it’s tied to money? Listen a lot of what we do is tied to money.. it’s not a bad thing. But we should be aware of it and make sure we’re making the right choices. Write this down: Money Mindset Matters

In this episode of Leadership in a Nutshell, we’re talking about pain point #2- Regret. “Most people want to avoid pain, and discipline is usually painful” - John Maxwell Remember, you’re going to have pain when you have discipline, but today we’re talking about regret and the reality is - when you stay the same, thats the ultimate regret. Don’t be a person that goes to the grave with regret. And don’t be a person who chases perfection because perfection is the biggest productivity killer.

26 Leadership: Pain Point - Discipline
We’re talking about a pain point that’s a struggle for all of us - discipline. Sometimes pain is in our lives to serve a purpose. One of the greatest entrepreneurs and motivational speakers, Jim Rohn, said “There are two types of pain - the pain of discipline, and the pain of regret. Discipline weighs ounces, while regret weighs tons.” I don’t want you carry around tons of weight my friend! Listen, it’s going to be painful either way - but which would you rather have? Discipline or regret? Discipline is challenging, yes. But you don’t want to get to your death bed and have regret. Let’s embrace pain and use it as a driver in our life’s purpose. Turn discipline into a “get to” vs. a “have to”. If this resonated with you please let me know by leaving a review!
