20: The Power of Gratitude

The Power of Gratitude

Gratitude is something I’ve been writing a lot about for my book: Gift Mindset.

And my guest today was the first person I thought of when I wanted to do an interview with someone that comes from a place of gratitude, who leads through gratitude, and I think embodies what gratitude is.

Being in gratitude and appreciating the things that we do have versus the things that we don't have I think as a leader in any role or as a business owner, or even life in general – is such an important thing to do and helps us to be and not just do.

Joining me on today’s show is Claire Summers.

Claire is the Founder of Gratitude Glass Jars.

After experiencing a series of deeply traumatic life experiences within a seven-month period, the last of which nearly took her life, Claire created the gratitude glass jar as a visual tool to help herself heal by capturing daily notes of gratitude that enabled her to rebuild herself and open her heart once more.

She decided (or dared) to try out a trade show as a sole exhibitor in the summer of 2017 in New York, where she won the award for the best product for gifts and lifestyle and was hand-selected by the team at Oprah, for consideration within Oprah's favourite thing within eight weeks of launching.

Onstage with Oprah Winfrey sharing her story, it became the number one selling product on Amazon and appeared on endless TV spots and media across the globe.

Gratitude Glass Jars has developed into a lifestyle brand with an assortment of products that encourage people to pause, share their stories, and inspire others. The movement is global glass jars are all about capturing the spirit of living, celebrating life events, sharing memories, and expressing words of love.

On the show, Claire speaks about The Power of Gratitude, including:

  • What gratitude means to her;
  • A different perspective on gratitude;
  • Separating gratitude from wants, and much more

18: The Gift Mindset of Resilience

The Gift Mindset of Resilience

Joining me on today’ show is Suzanne Waldron.

Suzanne is a behavioural change facilitator whose Master's research focus has been on prosocial leadership.

She's been working with people across Australia with a focus explicitly on communication and meaningful relationships, which is something just so important in this day and age.

She's an ambassador for our UK. She's a TEDx Perth curator, and the co-founder and director of a short doco series called: Stories Out Loud. She's a public speaker and media contributor. And she's been nominated for Western Australian of the Year.

On today’s show, Suzanne will be talking about the Gift of Resilience, including:

  • The psychological determinants between why some people think about doing something significant things beyond themselves and go on to do it versus those people who only think about it and never do it.
  • The meaning and importance of ProSocial Leadership.
  • The importance of understanding yourself and your boundaries, and much more

LISTEN NOW:

 

About: 

Suzanne Waldron was born in England, and lives in Western Australia. She is fascinated with humanity and how we relate to ourselves and one another. Born deaf, she had multiple operations to restore her hearing. She lived in a truck travelling Europe before becoming a foster child, then homeless teenager. She experienced a tough upbringing. This led her to dig deeply into life’s array of emotions and how we can each utilise all that living has to offer. Her first book A Flourishing Mind takes the reader through her life experiences and learnings via harsh realities, to a place of deep hope. She has recently published her latest book: Sleeping Giants.

Today, she is a behaviouralist having studied a Master’s Degree in Coaching and Neuro-Linguistics. Her research focussed on pro-social leadership and the psychological aspects of inner fulfillment through moving significant ideas (beyond self) into action. She studies philosophy and economics to widen her knowledge on meaning and the systems we live in and finds solace in painting as a creative outlet.

Believing that honest, hopeful and truthful relationships are the bedrock of fulfilment and progress, Suzanne works with individuals, organisations and influencers to build cohesive relationships in community, government and not for profits. She works globally combining her skills as a behavioural change facilitator, artist, writer and speaker.

Suzanne is a curator for TEDxPerth and the Museum of Freedom of Tolerance. She is an active ambassador for R U OK? and Nakuru Hope. She was nominated for Western Australian of the Year 2016 for her work in the community.

Limitless Leaders™ Connection – #Goal – When you get to interview one of your favourite authors!

Bob Burg Podcast

In times of uncertainty, growth and change I’m super excited to have recently interviewed Bob Burg for my Limitless Leaders™ Podcast.

Bob is a Hall of Fame keynote speaker, and International Best Selling author of The Go-Giver, one of my all-time favourite books. I read a lot of books, and it's a book I refer back to often.

In his book The Go-Giver, Bob shares how a subtle shift in focus is not only a more uplifting and fulfilling way of conducting business but the most financially profitable way, as well.

Although for years he was best known for his book Endless Referrals, over the past few years it’s his business parable, The Go-Giver (coauthored with John David Mann) that has captured the imagination of his readers.

The Go-Giver, a Wall Street Journal and BusinessWeek Bestseller, has sold over 950,000 copies. Since its release, it has consistently stayed in the Top 25 on Porchlight’s (formerly 800-CEO-READ) Business Book Bestsellers List and also translated into 28 languages. The book was rated #10 on Inc. Magazine’s list of the Most Motivational Books Ever Written and was on HubSpot’s 20 Most Highly Rated Sales Books of All Time.

Bob is the author of a number of books on sales, marketing and influence, with total book sales approaching two million copies.

The Go-Giver contradicts the notion that to be successful; you need to be a go-getter, a competitive hard-charger focused on getting new clients and making ever-bigger deals. I love how the book is written, it's easy to read and the lessons throughout I have bought into my life since I first read it.

This book reinforces that giving rather than getting is your first priority in business and in life—and success will follow.

Becoming a “go-giver” means giving value to others, not as a strategy or quid pro quo, but as a way of leading a satisfying life.

 

The key Five Lessons we explore in the interview:

  1. The Law of Value: How much more you give others in value than you receive in payment defines your worth.
  2. The Law of Compensation: Your income depends on how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
  3. The Law of Influence: Your influence (social capital) is determined by the extent to which you put the interests of others' first.
  4. The Law of Authenticity: The most important thing you can offer is yourself.
  5. The Law of Receptivity: For effective giving, be open to receiving.

I absolutely loved interviewing Bob, and I know you, an important person in my community, will glean so much value from the Podcast interview.
