This week I have two amazing guests: Danny Creed and Craig Marshall. Together they are on a mission to help entrepreneurs make the most out of their ventures. Join us for a truly inspirational talk!
On today’s podcast:
- How to deal with everyday stress
- The benefits of meditation
- Nevermind your failures
- How to be comfortable with yourself
How to deal with everyday stress
Danny works with a lot of executives and entrepreneurs, and he realizes that now that we have access to technology 24/7, most of us think that we should do everything. One of the first steps in professional relief of stress is to organize your day.
If anybody tries to sell you time management, run. You have to learn to prioritize the things you need to do and then manage your time accordingly.
A German philosopher once said, “Never allow the most important things in life to be at the mercy of the least important things”.
For thousands of years, yogis have known that most of us think, on average, about 1000 thoughts an hour. The goal of yoga is to slow things down so that we can go deeper and think more creative thoughts.
Yogis developed very simple breathing techniques. When you meditate, your heartbeat slows down and your thoughts slow down as well.
Nevermind your failures
Danny’s philosophy on a mistake or a problem is that it’s a failure only if you don’t learn something from it.
Danny’s four-step process to overcome your failures is:
- What happened? Be very honest and don’t point any blame at someone else
- Why did it happen?
- How will it never happen again?
- See you later aka move forward and don’t look back
It’s not a big deal to reframe our challenges if we really understand the need to look at them from another level.
We are all creating our own reality. Our thoughts are turning into things, so it’s really all about focus. If we frame something as a failure, we’re going to get more of it. It’s a spiral and there is no happy ending to an unhappy journey, as Craig likes to say.
We all have inner self-talk. Through meditation and mindfulness practices, we can reframe who we think we are.
Most people live a “circumstantial life”: they believe that once they get all their ducks lined up they will be happy. When we’re at peace, we draw all the circumstances we want.
How to be comfortable with yourself
We’ve been trained to give the easy answer instead of the right answer in life. Danny asks people “Do you live your life in survival mode or possibility mode?”
The Life Success Chart is a pie chart broken down into nine areas of life that Danny and Craig use. They ask people to put a dot in every one of these slices. If you put a dot in the middle of the pie, it means 0, if you put it on the outer side, it is a 10. So if you reply with a 5 at a specific slice, you would place your dot somewhere in the middle.
You end up with 9 dots on the pie chart. If you connect all these dots, it’s an amazing graphic picture to look at.
The word “yoga’ from Sanskrit literally means union. Yoga is a lifestyle, it doesn’t have to do just with the body.
In order to get a hold of our minds, we have to first recognize that sometimes our minds cannot control our minds.

Are you aware of the habits that are limiting your career advancement? If you want to have more influence and more power, it’s time to put an end to certain patterns of thinking. To help you achieve that, I’ve invited someone I truly admire: author and executive coach Marshall Goldsmith.
On today’s podcast:
- The profile of the leader of the future
- Don’t always add value and listen to your people
- Don’t sacrifice your career for your job
- Become aware of what is limiting your career and start making changes
The profile of the leader of the future
The leader of the future has to have four attributes, according to Marshall:
- The ability to think globally and being able to manage people in a global setting.
- Cross-cultural appreciation. Diversity is not just about dealing with minorities in the US, but also about dealing with different cultures all around the world.
- Being tech-savvy. We can no longer hide from technology.
- Being able to build alliances and partnerships. Nowadays leadership is much more across, instead of being top-down.
- Shared leadership. In the past, leaders assumed they knew more than the people they led. Today the leader is no longer superior. Leaders of the future have to quit being the smartest person in the room.
Don’t always add value and listen to your people
In his job as an executive coach Marshall gives people a lot of feedback. His clients pick the areas in which they need to make the most changes, and he helps them with that.
He says that managers have a constant tendency of giving too much value. It’s very hard for smart, successful people not to constantly add value. Your suggestions as an executive become orders and you can end up diminishing the ideas of your employees.
Before you speak, breathe, and ask yourself, “Is it worth it? If I am not the expert on this topic, why am I speaking? Anything I say will probably end up doing more harm than good.”
Don’t sacrifice your career for your job
Marshall’s latest book, “How Women Rise: Break the 12 Habits Holding You Back from Your Next Raise, Promotion, or Job”, is a collaboration with Sally Helgesen. The idea was to create a book for any woman who is ready to advance to the next level.
One of the brilliant concepts in the book is sacrificing your career for your job. Women are much more likely to do this than men. They can get so wrapped up in doing a great job, that they don’t really invest in their career. They tend to have this naive assumption that if they do a good job, it should be the best thing to advance their career.
What you should be doing is always looking at that next job. If you’re not careful, you can become indispensable. Then you’re really stuck. Indispensable means, “We can’t get rid of her, she’s adding too much value.”
Become aware of what is limiting your career and start making changes
Women are much better than men at giving credit to others and saying we instead of I. This is generally a good thing. The only problem is that sometimes you need to get promoted.
If you want to make a bigger, more positive difference in the world, you need to have more power. You can’t influence people with no power.
If you want more power, you need to be aware of the things that stop your career. If you think, “I love my team so much, I’m ashamed to be promoted”, you ultimately limit your career and the influence you can have in the world.
We hold on to mental models too much. If we say, “That’s the way I am” with no intention of changing anything, then we will always get what we always got. We always have a choice. If we want more power and more authority, we need to change this way of thinking.
