Do you want 2015 to be a breakthrough year? Today I want to share with you what I’ve realized in the past few weeks as I have been making plans to take my business and life to the next level. I realized there were some clear steps I took in 2014 that made the difference for me.

Today I’ll share 10 Essential Steps to Make 2015 a Breakthrough Year.

The cool thing about these steps is that any single one of them has the ability to open the floodgates for you. Any one of them could single handedly make 2015 a breakthrough year.

My hope is that when you listen, you immediately identify one or two MUSTS for you. I want you say “I know that one or those two will have the biggest impact. Those are the things I must do to make it a breakthrough year." Then I want you to take action on the first one.

So sit back and listen carefully as I reveal what made the biggest differences for me in 2014 and I pull back the curtain so to speak on how to overcome your biggest obstacles and make 2015 a breakthrough year for you.

You’re probably not a good listener. No offense, it’s just statistically likely. So, the question is then, why are you a bad listener and how do you fix it?

No one wants to be known as a bad listener. No one wants to forget an entire side of a conversation and have to ask someone to repeat. Everyone wants to be a good listener. Few people want to become a good listener. Just like everyone wants to play the guitar, while few want to learn to play guitar.

Today I’m going to share 7 reasons why you might be a bad listener and 7 ways to fix that. All of these are from experience. Trust me, I am a recovering bad listener. It’s something I struggle with every single day.

But I am getting better. Here’s what I’ve learned and how you, too, can be a better listener.

What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? That is the powerful question that today’s guest asks. Have you ever asked yourself that question?

So, what is it? What is the thing you would do if you knew you could not fail?

Is that what you are doing right now, professionally? What about in your relationships?

Today’s guest is more than a decade younger than me, but I learned a lot from this interview. In fact, I took more notes of my own after listening than I have on any previous interview.

I’ll think you’ll enjoy it and learn a ton as well.

About Greg

Greg Faxon helps people to live deliberately. I love his attitude and purpose.

Greg believes that:

  • Most people live passively. They work hard all of their lives, only to wake up one day with a feeling of emptiness, with no idea where they are or how they got there. Is that you?
  • A small few work smart. These are the people that you probably know who always seem to wake up motivated, happy, and productive. They naturally make more of an impact because they have discovered something…that some this:
  • You don’t have to do what you are told. You don’t have to trade your sanity for success. When you live deliberately, your life becomes a lot less painful and a lot more enjoyable.

I left the restaurant manager in tears...and saved a dollar on my meal. Neither of those was my intention. To be perfectly honest, I didn't give much thought to what I'd done...and in the process learned how to uncage my heart.

I was in a particularly bad mood when I arrived at the restaurant. It was late. I was hungry. I knew what I wanted and I wanted it now.

I stood with my arms crossed and an obvious look of annoyance on my face. I was the only person in line and yet I was asked to wait.

Shift gears with me. This story isn’t going where you probably thought it was.

I was asked to wait because the person in front of me hadn’t paid yet. She was an employee there.

I looked over as they called to her, themselves annoyed somewhat at having to make me wait for her. She was holding a newborn in one arm and her tray in the other. She was in uniform and my best guess is that she immigrated here within the past five years, not having been born into the privileges which I take for granted every day.

In an instant, I no longer saw the source of my inconvenience. I saw a fellow human being. My hunger subsided. My impatience vanished at the sight of the baby and her struggling mother.

Have you ever thought of yourself as a prophet? Probably not. After all, what comes to mind when you think of prophets? Perhaps, crazy people from the olden days who walk around predicting the future or calling down fire on a mountaintop.

But you are a prophet. Yes, you.

And it's time to start acting like one.

Your words have immense power! And I want for you to use that power to your advantage.

Today, I share a story about a guy named Tom who prophesied his own downfall. I share what he did and what you can learn from it so that you don't make the same mistake.

Your future becomes what you say about it today. Choose your words wisely.

I had an interesting experience a while ago as I left my office for the night. I met a seven-year old who I think embodies what it is to be a World Changer. And she probably doesn't even know it. This very brief discussion with a seven-year old really lit a fire in me and was one of the inspirations for this podcast.

Seven-year old Jalen asked me, “Do you like Burger King?

I told her that I don’t and she mentioned that she was trying to sell a coupon for a free burger for a dollar.

“Is that for school?” I asked.

“No. I found it in the newspaper and I’m trying to sell it. It’s worth two dollars and I’m going to sell it for a dollar.”

It's that attitude that I believe more of us need and that's what I share in today's podcast.

What do you do when you reach the point that your punch-the-clock job is no longer an option? What do you do when you realize that you are virtually unemployable?

Today's guest knows exactly what that is like. Eleven years ago, she made the decision to stay at home with her two sons and to start a new business. After many ups and downs, her new vision is to inspire other parents to create their own successful parent entrepreneur lifestyles. She is encouraging others to make the time and the money to be able to raise their kids and enjoy the fruits of their labors.
