Who are your biggest critics?  Think about that question for a moment.  Who are the people in your life who are most critical of your dreams?  Who are the people that leave you feeling depleted, deflated and depressed? In today’s episode you will learn the 1 thing that will silence your critics forever...

SHOW NOTES: http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/086

We all have had a critic in our lives at one point or another. You know, the type of person that when you leave their presence, your energy is depleted, your joy stripped, and your dreams crushed.

In today's episode we talk about:

  • What is the definition of a critic (and who is not a critic)?
  • The one tactic to silence your critics forever.
  • Does "loving your enemies" mean you have to put up with critics in your life?
  • Critics only have power over us if we let them.
  • What if your critic is a family member?

We also announce the winner of the free copy of Margaret Neale and Thomas Lys' book, Getting (More Of) What You Want  from Episode 85.

What makes a leader? Is it circumstances? Genetics? Some people choose not to be a leader because they believe that leadership is “luck of the draw”--that some people are just born leaders. In today’s episode we are going to debunk this myth and explain how YOU can become a great leader.

SHOW NOTES: http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/084

We’ve all either had, or seen that person who just seems to be a natural leader…they are charismatic, they’re problem solvers, they’re good public speakers. So the question is, are great leaders born or made?

This is the question that we answer in this episode.

Here are some of the things we talk about in the episode:

  • How do you become a leader?
  • You are a leader by choice
  • What great leaders and parents don’t do
  • What great leaders and parents do.
  • The one reason most people choose not to be leaders
