Encore Episode: What You Have In Common With Wine

October 18, 2016 | By | No Comments">No Comments

Today’s episode is part viticulture and part life lesson. I think you’re going to enjoy it…especially if you like wine!

Hi folks, this week we are bringing you an oldie but a goodie and revisiting one of our top rated podcasts of all time. (This is one of the most important things we talk about, and it’s so powerful…) So this is an encore presentation of us talking about what you have in common with wine!

In this podcast I’ll explain:

  • How wine grapes are grown and how this relates to you and your business
  • Your Root System
  • What makes a great farmer and how that farmer harvests a perfect grape
  • The process of destroying perfect grapes to make great wine
  • How farming and the process of wine making relates to you and your business

Every great business has seasons and there is a cycle or a process to growth. There are times to take advantage of the sun, the shade, creating boundaries and making sure things are set up correctly to grow. My own businesses have had moments of destruction to create something new, next thing you know, we grow. For me, I see that as God preparing us.

Just like the wine, there are seasons of aging in a barrel, mellowing out and giving us extra flavor. We can’t discount the destructive times. In those times, we’re becoming more intense. If we don’t look back with our teams and celebrate what we’ve come through or what we’ve done, we don’t understand that it’s a season we’ve grown out of.

Why Entrepreneurs Plateau in Their Business – Part 2

iTunes Stitcher Radio SoundCloud

subscribe-itunes-button

Welcome to the show, Nevin! He was our first podcast live call in Q&A guest! We brought Nevin back on to dive even deeper and get really practical…

If you have questions that you want answered, solutions you need, things that are holding you back… Let’s talk! I will give you the best solution I possibly can. It’s really easy. Get on the schedule here.

TODAY we are diving deeper into why entrepreneurs plateau in their business, why Nevin plateaued. 

While there are common generational and external influences for many folks…this is truly a personal discovery process. Nevin and I unpack what this process looks like, here’s what we walk through together:

  • Recovering from the endless cycle of people pleasing
  • The universal “empty” feeling, and where it comes from
  • How to get self-worth from God
  • The right and wrong places to gain self-worth

This is so important…

Worth from people lasts about five minutes. Trying to make yourself feel good by making others happy also lasts about five minutes. How do you get that happiness from somewhere else? We’ve been trained. We’re programmed to think,

“If I don’t take care of them in their struggles, I’m not a caring person, I’m a bad person. Or…it’s the right thing to do.”

We have this unhealthy mindset:

My worth tanks if I’m not constantly making someone else feel better or better about themselves.

You have got to get yourself out of this place! Where should self-worth come from?

I believe your greatest worth, period, is the act of love that happened with the cross.

How To Move Forward When You Feel Stuck

how to move forward

 

I am all about solving problems, fixing things, getting my hands dirty, and discovering the why behind the what…but what do you do when you feel stuck?

Today on the podcast, we hear from Jill, who is struggling with just that.

“Hi Chris, my name is Jill, I’m 45, I am not married, never married, no kids and have found myself in a situation where I am not working, I’ve been looking for a job since November, I moved across the country two years ago and still am not connected at all.  

I did that because I felt that’s what the Lord was asking me to do, but I know that I’m extremely closed down and I have a business, I’m an AdvoCare independent distributor, have been since 2002 and can’t seem to get myself to do that business and it’s all about not having a belief in myself. 

I hear on your podcasts about life plan and agree that that’s exactly what I need to do but I found myself having zero money, no ability to get to it and honestly I don’t know what to do anymore. I‘m extremely unhappy and that’s not the kind of person I am, so any hope as far as advice or action plan would be very, very welcome.

Thanks Chris, I love everything you do.”

Wow! I know that there are a lot of people right now that can relate to Jill’s question.

Listen in to hear how to move forward. Here’s what I unpack:

  • The God Factor – It’s in God that we get the answers and the direction.
  • Isolation – it is amazing what happens when you are isolated and you’re left to your own thoughts which tend to contain some level of lies or some broken belief systems.
  • Community – There are 2 aspects to community. Having it, having people around you to keep you from being isolated in your own thoughts. It’s also a community of people that are sharing the same experience. When you have that community of people sharing the same experience, growth happens.
  • Understand Your Root System  – When you gain perspective on your root system, you can see how and why you make decisions the way you do. You can identify what training or beliefs are there that aren’t healthy and hold you back. When you understand why you make decisions the way you do, you can change them.
  • Depression – Do the things that refuels you, whatever that is.
  • Diet & Exercise – Get sugar as far away from you as you can, and get your body moving!
QUESTION: In what ways have you been able to get “unstuck”?
