Embrace the Fact the Change Is a Process

Show Notes

Clay Clark teaches why entrepreneurs must embrace the fact the change is a process and not a one time event. He also deep dives into the importance of positive self-talk and how negative self-talk can absolutely destroy your dreams.

The decisions to change take a split second, however it is the process that takes time. It’s like this with all things. You must embrace the process.

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “Transformation is a process, and as life happens there are tons of ups and downs. It’s a journey of discovery – there are moments on mountaintops and moments in deep valleys of despair.” – Rick Warren (The New York Times best-selling author, founder and senior pastor of Saddleback Church, an evangelical megachurch in Lake Forest, California, that is the eighth-largest church in the United States)

The words we speak and hear can impact us either negatively or positively. For every word taken in from the environment around you that is negative, you must counterbalance it with three positive words.

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful.” Mark Victor Hansen (The best-selling author behind the Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books)

Are they pretty us small business administration entrepreneur of the year for the state of oklahoma, when I was 27 and I just I really wanted to I was by my prayer, my heart. My goal was to become a source of wisdom and not just be known as the disc jockey guy, because I was very good as a dj. Arguably the best in the region, perhaps the best in the country based upon reviews in income in revenue and he’s kind of things, but I wanted to make an impact on the planet that was beyond just playing music and getting people in the group. Now I had a great time teaching them. It was super fun. Getting people dancing to predominately all white crown. I mean those are the funnest to try to get them. Danzig’s out of there were dance before an event. Words.

Multiple cultures in people from all over the world I mean lot of cultures. Dance I mean the people that are from mexico dance.

But I wanted to make a mark beyond, just being a big being honest, a good dj, a great dj, and so what are the things I decided to do was to focus on becoming a source of wasn’t coming elephant in the room. I’ll give the guy that people would say. You got a business question to ask since I’m breaking down for you to 57 steps that you can take to become a source of wisdom and by the way, if you do the business coach research, you look it up today. Just look it up. Why do people stay at their job? Why do people stay at their job? Why are people committed and excited about their job? And why do people hate compensation is one of the variables one of the things, but people literally cannot stay at a job too long if they think their boss is an idiot I’m able to tell if your boss, isn’t source of morality of their boss is in a source of wisdom, can’t string together, multiple days in a row being on time. All the old peace out, delete they’ll go move on, and so you can argue with what I’m saying, but look at the statistics. Statistics about bad employees, but what about bad bosses I mean so I wanted to become a source of wisdom, so I could keep good people grow. My company’s and move beyond just being the owner of a slumlord owner of a dj company. 11th mindset, as we go through our series on the 57 words of wisdom is xi mindset. Is the decisions to change? Take a split second member.

The decisions decisions to change take a split second, it is the process that takes time visions to change. Take a split second. It is the process that takes the time. That’s really really good. I probably should write that down myself, but the decisions to change take a split-second. However, it is the process that takes time. It’s like this with all things you must embrace the process. If you don’t embrace the process, you’re not going to win the rick warren rick won the new york times bestselling author, the founder and senior pastor of saddleback church, the evangelical mega church in lake forest california, which is the 8th largest church in the united states. He says this is another recordable from rick warren I’m reading. Here he says, transformation is a process. In his life happens. There are tons of ups and downs. It’s a journey of discovery. There are moments on mountain tops and moments in the deep valleys of despair I’m, going to read that again, transformation is a process. In his life happens. There are tons of ups and downs. It’s a journey of discovery. There are moments on mountain tops and moments in deep valleys of business coach despair, so I had to learn to embrace stoicism. How did embrace stoicism? That means I’ve heard the words still explore that mean stewart’s ism was an ancient greek school of philosophy and where they taught the endurance of pain or hardship without a display of feelings and without a complaint stoicism is the endurance of pain or hardship without a display of feelings and without complaint, so I used to get so worked up. When we had a bad day when we had a customer complaint and used to just rob, my joy I would lose the entire weekend.

So if someone needs to hear this right now, I’m not sure who you are, but somebody needs to hear this I would lose entire weekends. I’m talking about massive weekends, entire weekends of my life would be lost because somebody because somebody would complain about the dj service i, think about that. We did 80 weddings a week, 88 0. If we’re doing 80 weddings a week, it’s not even likely that I’m not going to get a complaint. I want to sure someone gets this I had to learn the mindset of stoicism. It took me a long time to get it, but remember:i used to lose week is djing was my passion:i would lose an entire weekend. I’m, not even exaggerating I would sleep in the closet by myself all sunday the entire sunday I would spend it by my business coach self so frustrated that we ruined someone’s wedding, and you might say, will you should be listen. We 80 weddings all week. We would only usually get one complaint a week, but that one complaint would eat me. This is like this for professional athletes that have gone older, I become friends with a lot of professional athletes, and it’s interesting with the professional athletes will tell me it’s the shot. I didn’t make that haunts me all week. This means if we got one complaint a week and a dj connection. That means you only made an air 1.25% of the time, but I’m, not exaggerating i, would literally think about it, dwell about it obsess on it and that one deal I didn’t get with rob me of all my joy and all my time. I work so hard to create so I had to learn stoicism definition. Stoicism is the endurance of pain or hardship without the display of feelings or complaint and I learned that over time and we come back I’m going to teach you the 12 mindset you have to have to learn to become a source of wisdom were talking about how to become an elephant in any room.
