Stop Worrying About Other People’s Opinions

Stop Worrying

So today we are talking about something that comes up quite a bit in our LifePlan sessions – Worrying about other people’s opinions.

Are you looking to other people for affirmation and approval?
Are you finding your self worth in this?

A lot of folks are and it can be crippling to your life.

I constantly see incredibly gifted people  that are so concerned and worried about following rules and for them it’s based on what other people will think of them if they don’t do it.

Their self-worth is in following the rules and when they don’t follow… their world starts to crumble because their world revolves around what other people think of them.

Let me know your thoughts on this one!

10 Signs You’re a People Pleaser

10 Signs You're a people pleaser

Are you afraid of other peoples opinions of you? Do you always seem to attract folks who need rescuing?
Well…you just might be a people pleaser.

Quite a few people who come through LifePlan struggle with being a people pleaser and finding their worth in the acceptance of other people. It can control them.

When your life always revolves around being a people pleaser you actually end up losing life. It robs you of your authentic self
and it all comes from a persons root system. It’s the stuff that’s deeply ingrained in you.

In today’s show I look at 10 signs you may be a people pleaser.

How To Control Your Emotions: The Emotional Bell Curve

Control Your Emotions

On todays show we are talking about the Emotional Bell Curve and controlling your emotions.
This topic was sparked by a recent temper tantrum I witnessed on the race track which resulted in a driver being kicked out of the championship race.  He lost his cool. He didn’t control his emotions.

He’s not alone! Many of us have a hard time controlling our emotional response in negative situations.  Well..the Emotional Bell Curve will soon become your best friend when you need to control your emotions.

Also, we started the new lesson series, The Core, yesterday. Theses are the foundational lessons I teach my exclusive coaching clients. The response has been awesome! If you haven’t gotten started…why?

10 Signs You’re Not Emotionally Strong

Today we’re diving into Part 2 of the 10 Signs You’re Not Emotionally Strong and have recapped all 10 of the signs. If you missed the last Chris LoCurto Show, listen here: https://soundcloud.com/chrislocurto/chris-locurto-show-being-emotionally-strong-part-1

What does it mean to be emotionally strong? Other peoples actions can’t tear you down or affect you or stress you out. You don’t have problems making decisions and you’re content with life. You’re happy and everything in your world is going well. Even if there are struggles or problems, you’re able to get through decision making processes and be strong.

Understanding Your Root System

Your life equals your root system.

The Chris LoCurto Show, Understanding Your Root System, ChrisLoCurto.com

Your life and your decision making process comes from your root system. In LifePlan, I spend time tying what’s happened in a persons life to their root system – family, influences, leadership, friends, etc. Whatever has happened in your past shapes the decisions you make today.

The Lies We Believe [Podcast]

The lies that we’re told, the lies we tell ourselves, and the lies we believe hold us back.

When you’re told specific lies from people you love, like parents or family, those words hold you back from becoming something greater or believing in yourself or becoming an entrepreneur or fill in the blank.

Why do people we love tell us lies?

Creating High Quality Culture

Culture is kind of a big deal around here. I spend a great deal of time teaching entrepreneurs and guiding teams on how to create high quality culture in their organizations. It’s a major component of every business, and it has the power to destroy your company or make you successful.

INC Magazine invited me to do a talk on culture and those lessons have been available in chapters to blog subscribers. Today, I’m featuring three of the lessons in the podcast.

4 Steps To Proper Delegation

Proper delegation is one of the most jacked up concepts in business.

Chris LoCurto, Leadership, Business, Strategic Planning

We think delegating is giving someone a task and expecting that they do it. Here’s why that doesn’t work:

You’re overloaded with stuff so you decide to take something off your plate. You find somebody to give it to & wait for them to either do it very well (and make you happy) or screw it up totally. They screw up & now you have to take it back & do it yourself.

Here’s the crazy thing, that’s what most people think delegation is. Know why?
