00:00:17.160 –> 00:00:26.190
Kathy Gruver: we’re going through the last of the seven habits of good leaders that we have been talking about for a couple episodes now, so the first two we’ve got relationships.

6
00:00:26.520 –> 00:00:38.790
Kathy Gruver: we’ve got thinking strategically we have dynamic communication use your face, and we have being a curious learner Jason you know so far, you and I we’ve nailed all these we got them down so.

00:00:39.840 –> 00:00:40.170
Kathy Gruver: What.

8
00:00:40.590 –> 00:00:45.990
Jason Mefford: Oh okay just just deposit just disclaimer i’m still working on all these things myself to.

9
00:00:46.050 –> 00:00:48.480
Jason Mefford: Cry I mean but it’s yeah.

10
00:00:49.200 –> 00:00:51.810
Kathy Gruver: we’re good at, I mean, I would say we’re above average.

11
00:00:52.260 –> 00:00:53.130
Jason Mefford: or above average.

12
00:00:53.460 –> 00:00:54.570
Jason Mefford: I think on these yes.

13
00:00:54.600 –> 00:00:55.500
Kathy Gruver: Yes, cool.

14
00:00:56.310 –> 00:01:00.120
Kathy Gruver: let’s see what the last three or though you never know when we’re gonna fall short So what are the last.

15
00:01:00.300 –> 00:01:03.990
Jason Mefford: To the last three of the next one is courage to be themselves.

16
00:01:04.110 –> 00:01:05.760
Kathy Gruver: Oh, I do not have a problem with that one.

17
00:01:05.850 –> 00:01:06.300
Jason Mefford: I know.

18
00:01:06.330 –> 00:01:06.510
Jason Mefford: If.

19
00:01:07.110 –> 00:01:08.940
Jason Mefford: any of you have been listening right.

20
00:01:08.970 –> 00:01:10.980
Jason Mefford: On to this, you know that we’re.

21
00:01:10.980 –> 00:01:12.240
Jason Mefford: kind of all about this, but.

22
00:01:12.750 –> 00:01:15.570
Jason Mefford: But it’s it’s an important thing right because.

23
00:01:15.600 –> 00:01:29.100
Jason Mefford: You know, so much so many people are afraid of what other people are going to think they’re afraid of the judgment they’re afraid of being cast out that they don’t really have the courage to be themselves.

24
00:01:29.220 –> 00:01:29.520
Kathy Gruver: yep.

25
00:01:29.910 –> 00:01:43.560
Jason Mefford: And so what ends up happening is you know you end up becoming like a plastic Barbie doll that you, you know just do and say and are what everyone else expects you to do.

26
00:01:44.220 –> 00:01:52.290
Jason Mefford: Now doing that again there’s some there’s some serious psychological issues for doing that because that’s playing with cognitive dissonance fire.

27
00:01:52.590 –> 00:01:56.760
Jason Mefford: And you’ll go crazy if you’re always pretending to be somebody else.

28
00:01:57.060 –> 00:02:07.050
Jason Mefford: Okay, so but, but what but the important thing about it is you know we all bring uniqueness to what we do.

29
00:02:08.310 –> 00:02:23.190
Jason Mefford: Kathy you can only give a speech, the way that you give it based on your experience your life your personality right and it’s going to land much better when it’s done, you know authentically you.

30
00:02:23.250 –> 00:02:26.580
Jason Mefford: Again folks authentic is another word that a lot of people are using.

31
00:02:27.270 –> 00:02:34.680
Jason Mefford: that’s kind of what we’re what we’re talking about here is the courage to be yourself just show up and be you, because only you.

32
00:02:35.040 –> 00:02:45.780
Jason Mefford: can lead in certain ways right, I mean imagine if if Gandhi had said well you know i’m a little short Indian man i’m not i’m not a tall European So how can I help change the world.

33
00:02:46.800 –> 00:02:57.510
Jason Mefford: Well, no, he was who he was right and again think about a lot of these different leaders or you know other people that you look up to their themselves.

34
00:02:57.600 –> 00:02:59.520
Jason Mefford: and show up as who they are right.

35
00:02:59.910 –> 00:03:04.170
Jason Mefford: We know who they are, we appreciate their honesty.

36
00:03:04.620 –> 00:03:06.000
Jason Mefford: Their authenticity.

37
00:03:06.660 –> 00:03:14.100
Jason Mefford: And you know I can say something you know 20 times to you and Kathy can say at one time.

38
00:03:15.150 –> 00:03:24.510
Jason Mefford: i’m just making this up right and the 20 times I say it didn’t land but Kathy says, at one time in the way that she can say it.

39
00:03:24.780 –> 00:03:26.070
Jason Mefford: yeah and now you get it.

40
00:03:26.700 –> 00:03:27.060
yeah.

41
00:03:28.920 –> 00:03:29.370
Kathy Gruver: Yes.

42
00:03:30.060 –> 00:03:30.540
Jason Mefford: Yes.

43
00:03:30.630 –> 00:03:31.830
Jason Mefford: Yes, yes, so.

44
00:03:31.860 –> 00:03:34.800
Jason Mefford: One of the habits is courage to be yourself.

45
00:03:34.920 –> 00:03:42.600
Jason Mefford: yeah and not and not be afraid to do that, and I use courage on purpose, because it takes courage to actually do that.

46
00:03:43.260 –> 00:03:50.610
Kathy Gruver: and also to go back to you know we try so hard to morph ourselves into what other people want us to be sometimes that’s a perception.

47
00:03:50.940 –> 00:03:56.520
Kathy Gruver: it’s a perception of what we think we want other people to be so, for example, when I finished my PhD.

48
00:03:57.000 –> 00:04:07.980
Kathy Gruver: I was like Okay, I have to be really serious now and I made my website very serious i’m a corporate speaker and I have a PR Dr Cathy Gruber and I like I changed my headshot from the really fun like outdoor one to.

49
00:04:09.300 –> 00:04:19.020
Kathy Gruver: It wasn’t that because I hate those pictures but it’s like I started to change everything and, finally, one of the like the radio guest list kind of things that I was on the guys like um.

50
00:04:19.500 –> 00:04:28.020
Kathy Gruver: So I noticed you changed your picture and you’re like you kind of changed the color what’s what’s going on, and I said, why have a PhD now I can almost hear him I get up.

51
00:04:28.260 –> 00:04:29.130
Kathy Gruver: here on the email go.

52
00:04:30.480 –> 00:04:30.990
Kathy Gruver: Okay.

53
00:04:33.420 –> 00:04:34.980
Jason Mefford: Still Kathy underneath.

54
00:04:35.190 –> 00:04:39.000
Kathy Gruver: It made no sense and it’s funny because when I when I started to put the red in my hair.

55
00:04:40.080 –> 00:04:42.150
Kathy Gruver: My then at the time, husband goes.

56
00:04:43.500 –> 00:04:54.840
Kathy Gruver: Why are you doing that and I said because i’ve always wanted read streaks my hair and he goes Okay, Dr Kathy gruver you think they’re going to take you seriously when you show up at Google to do a talk and I said yeah.

57
00:04:56.280 –> 00:05:00.390
Kathy Gruver: Because this is not a reflection of i’m a bad speaker, this is not a reflection of.

58
00:05:00.840 –> 00:05:10.230
Kathy Gruver: I don’t know what i’m doing or you know it’s like I didn’t get face tattoos and put Spikes through my face, you know it’s like it’s a red streak lot of people have these now, so it was his perception of.

59
00:05:10.710 –> 00:05:13.920
Kathy Gruver: Are they going to deem you not professional because you’ve got a streak in your hair.

60
00:05:14.490 –> 00:05:21.450
Kathy Gruver: 20 years ago, maybe not now so it’s like this is my way of just throwing a little bit of self expression, and it lets people know.

61
00:05:22.080 –> 00:05:28.230
Kathy Gruver: i’m fun i’m a little bit offbeat i’m a little bit quirky i’m, this is the perfect expression of who I really am.

62
00:05:28.620 –> 00:05:40.800
Kathy Gruver: Even though my headshot may smiling and stuff but they you know they may see my credentials and then the picture and go out okay she’s she’s a bigger well rounded person we thought so yeah express yourself find a way to do that.

63
00:05:41.400 –> 00:05:46.440
Jason Mefford: Well, and it’s becoming more acceptable now for you right, I mean again for a lot of years.

64
00:05:46.920 –> 00:05:56.730
Jason Mefford: We were all afraid to let your freak flag fly now it’s it’s Okay, in fact, you know that’s to me that’s what makes the world a beautiful place.

65
00:05:56.790 –> 00:06:00.810
Jason Mefford: yeah is how all of us are a little bit different and we’re a big melting pot, and I just.

66
00:06:00.810 –> 00:06:02.340
Jason Mefford: Find people’s fascinating.

67
00:06:04.020 –> 00:06:04.410
Jason Mefford: So.

68
00:06:04.740 –> 00:06:12.210
Kathy Gruver: This is why I love the conversation we have the dominatrix if you guys haven’t heard that issue that episode you we just sparked your interest there because it is about you know.

69
00:06:12.480 –> 00:06:23.700
Kathy Gruver: tapping into who you really are finding a way to express that finding the strength and the courage to just be who you are and that’s why I love that episode so yeah OK, so be yourself, we got that.

70
00:06:24.210 –> 00:06:29.040
Kathy Gruver: yourself got it the next one, is leading from the inside.

71
00:06:29.550 –> 00:06:33.870
Jason Mefford: So I think we’ve already kind of done a an earlier episode here i’ve done some on my.

72
00:06:33.900 –> 00:06:37.050
Jason Mefford: channel Jason podcast already about this too, but it’s.

73
00:06:37.560 –> 00:06:39.840
Jason Mefford: it’s about the the whole idea that.

74
00:06:40.860 –> 00:06:44.790
Jason Mefford: You know, and this kind of ties in from the courage to be yourself as well.

75
00:06:44.970 –> 00:06:52.590
Jason Mefford: yeah there’s there’s a lot of times a perception that you have to act dress and do things in a certain way.

76
00:06:54.000 –> 00:07:08.190
Jason Mefford: that’s just not true anymore okay and and what ends up happening so much of the time, especially in corporate America is people are taught to be leaders that command and control other people.

77
00:07:08.400 –> 00:07:11.610
Jason Mefford: That use fear and punishment to get people to do what they want.

78
00:07:12.390 –> 00:07:17.370
Jason Mefford: Now the roots of that go back to the military, especially since the Second World War.

79
00:07:17.700 –> 00:07:29.280
Jason Mefford: You had these millions of men who who fought in the in the war come home and that leadership training that they had in the military got translated into.

80
00:07:30.270 –> 00:07:31.890
Kathy Gruver: Organizations corporate yep.

81
00:07:32.250 –> 00:07:43.410
Jason Mefford: And so it was the i’m the general you must obey my orders kind of a thing, and you know, honestly, it probably worked okay for a lot of the people that were familiar with that.

82
00:07:43.980 –> 00:08:00.780
Jason Mefford: Now I don’t know when they got rid of the draft here in the US, but the the percentage of people here who have had military service much, much lower right so again that kind of command and control leadership doesn’t sit well with most people.

83
00:08:01.170 –> 00:08:04.140
Kathy Gruver: yeah it’s not the culture anymore, they don’t think lunch that’s no.

84
00:08:04.380 –> 00:08:14.310
Jason Mefford: it’s not what’s expected in fact so and what I find too is that you know again it’s not it’s not how you dress it’s not how you look.

85
00:08:14.700 –> 00:08:32.550
Jason Mefford: it’s not the title that you have it’s who you are from the inside out and so again, if you want to be a more powerful person you’ve got to work on yourself right, you know that the Gandhi quote you know, be the change, you want to see in the world.

86
00:08:32.580 –> 00:08:45.030
Jason Mefford: Yes, I love that idea, but again, how does that start it he’s he’s not telling you to go do things right, he said, if you want to change the world, what do you do be the change.

87
00:08:45.210 –> 00:08:57.360
Jason Mefford: yeah he’s not telling you to do anything he’s telling you to be a different person yeah and so that’s why these habits are those kinds of things, this is how you be a different person.

88
00:08:57.690 –> 00:08:58.980
Jason Mefford: Air more authentic.

89
00:08:59.010 –> 00:09:19.950
Jason Mefford: you’re carrying your emotional it’s okay to do that right to have emotional intelligence and to use that and to have that power come from the inside out, so I I usually use the analogy of well you know pick a dictator or think of a third world country dictator versus think of a monk.

90
00:09:21.360 –> 00:09:25.350
Jason Mefford: Two different kinds of people right who do you want to follow the dictator or the month.

91
00:09:25.650 –> 00:09:28.770
Jason Mefford: yeah and again not religion aside that’s not what i’m but.

92
00:09:28.800 –> 00:09:29.100
Jason Mefford: Wait.

93
00:09:29.760 –> 00:09:37.560
Jason Mefford: difference of the people, as far as who you would want to have lead you and who you would want to follow.

94
00:09:37.770 –> 00:09:55.050
Kathy Gruver: This yeah and I think to go back to the whole like for kind of authoritarian boss, is, I think one of the things that was missing then was that humanity that instinct that intuition and you know to me if you just said to me lead from the inside, to me, that is, this sort of like.

95
00:09:56.910 –> 00:10:07.170
Kathy Gruver: intuitive compassionate empathetic kind of leadership, as opposed to bama bama bama yeah so that’s when you said that that’s kind of what what came to me.

96
00:10:07.200 –> 00:10:09.660
Jason Mefford: Good because that’s exactly what I was intending to.

97
00:10:10.050 –> 00:10:13.650
Jason Mefford: yeah is that is that more of it comes from your intuition.

98
00:10:13.920 –> 00:10:15.090
Jason Mefford: yeah and you’re feeling.

99
00:10:15.240 –> 00:10:25.680
Jason Mefford: You know yeah we have a head, we have a heart, we have a gut thinking feeling doing right, and so we have to balance all of that as well, and so.

100
00:10:26.130 –> 00:10:38.490
Jason Mefford: intuition and leadership is becoming much more important and again there’s certain work you have to do to create that internal power source it’s also the same as external power versus internal power.

101
00:10:38.610 –> 00:10:38.880
Kathy Gruver: yeah.

102
00:10:39.090 –> 00:10:41.430
Jason Mefford: which again is the monk versus the dictator.

103
00:10:42.570 –> 00:10:45.000
Kathy Gruver: cool whoo all right, that was six.

104
00:10:45.060 –> 00:10:46.020
Jason Mefford: Alright, so one more.

105
00:10:46.170 –> 00:10:46.770
Jason Mefford: One more.

106
00:10:47.250 –> 00:10:48.570
Kathy Gruver: That we should do we should do now.

107
00:10:50.430 –> 00:10:51.360
Jason Mefford: I think we have time.

108
00:10:51.480 –> 00:11:00.630
Jason Mefford: I think I think we have time to start strong it out for over three episodes to like give it to me damn I mean you have a lot to set patients people issues my people.

109
00:11:00.690 –> 00:11:03.030
Jason Mefford: And it’s not patient patience is not the last one.

110
00:11:04.410 –> 00:11:05.520
Jason Mefford: But that is a good virtue that.

111
00:11:05.520 –> 00:11:06.600
Kathy Gruver: is a good one yeah.

112
00:11:06.870 –> 00:11:07.920
Kathy Gruver: Okay, so what’s the last one.

113
00:11:07.920 –> 00:11:10.560
Jason Mefford: So the last one is ask for help.

114
00:11:10.890 –> 00:11:24.090
Jason Mefford: Oh so again you’ll see that there’s kind of some tie ins on some of this other stuff but in the end, especially from a curious learner perspective right, I mean if you are a curious learner you’re probably going to be asking for help, but.

115
00:11:24.630 –> 00:11:27.270
Jason Mefford: But what I find is you know, especially the more.

116
00:11:28.320 –> 00:11:41.160
Jason Mefford: The higher up we go in organizations let’s say the more education, we have the less we feel like we need help from others, or I can figure this out, I can do it on my own.

117
00:11:41.460 –> 00:11:53.610
Jason Mefford: yeah and, and so the problem is, you know, then you’re just stuck and usually you stay stuck where you are thinking that you can just figure this out on your own.

118
00:11:54.000 –> 00:12:00.630
Jason Mefford: yeah well, you can you can be on a slow boat to China trying to figure this all out on your own.

119
00:12:00.870 –> 00:12:01.080
Kathy Gruver: APP.

120
00:12:01.110 –> 00:12:06.570
Jason Mefford: Or you can actually ask for help, and you can do some things that put you on a rocket ship instead.

121
00:12:06.990 –> 00:12:11.730
Jason Mefford: of choices up to you, slow boat to China or rocket ship.

122
00:12:11.820 –> 00:12:13.500
Jason Mefford: Right, I prefer the rocket ship.

123
00:12:13.500 –> 00:12:14.850
Kathy Gruver: Myself uh huh.

124
00:12:14.940 –> 00:12:15.750
Jason Mefford: And so.

125
00:12:15.780 –> 00:12:20.850
Jason Mefford: You know, as a result of that actually asking for help and realizing that we do all.

126
00:12:20.970 –> 00:12:21.750
Jason Mefford: need help.

127
00:12:22.200 –> 00:12:22.500
yeah.

128
00:12:23.550 –> 00:12:30.570
Kathy Gruver: Well, and that goes along with the relationships, too, and I told the story during that one of me asking a client of mine, can you draw me at the car place you know.

129
00:12:31.080 –> 00:12:41.490
Kathy Gruver: So and that’s a very simple example that you gave me, but the other one thing I was gonna say was I was always told the sign of a good leader is to surround yourself with people who know more than you.

130
00:12:42.660 –> 00:12:47.520
Kathy Gruver: Know it’s like I don’t do my own taxes, I don’t do my own.

131
00:12:48.180 –> 00:12:55.920
Kathy Gruver: Car repairs I don’t do my you know it’s like i’ve surrounded myself, even just me as i’m not in a corporation or a big organization, but I still have a team.

132
00:12:56.190 –> 00:13:06.300
Kathy Gruver: You know I have surrounded myself with people who know more than me and it’s that collaboration is that asking, I mean before we just jumped on for this recording you and I brainstormed a little bit of talk, I have to give.

133
00:13:06.660 –> 00:13:13.560
Kathy Gruver: Because I can’t do it all myself I wanted your opinion on that because I value what you do and I knew, you had some good insight.

134
00:13:13.800 –> 00:13:23.970
Kathy Gruver: So if you can’t then no man is an island let’s how many how many different things can we toss out, but you know it’s true, we have to surround ourselves with people who we trust you aren’t just going to be yes men.

135
00:13:24.690 –> 00:13:31.710
Kathy Gruver: Because that’s a thing of the past to that goes without a authoritarian kind of you know matt what was mad men was it that you know that kind of.

136
00:13:31.740 –> 00:13:32.730
Jason Mefford: Learning madmen.

137
00:13:33.450 –> 00:13:34.380
1950s.

138
00:13:35.460 –> 00:13:40.410
Kathy Gruver: yeah we’re in a different era of leadership and and organizations and so.

139
00:13:40.740 –> 00:13:46.440
Kathy Gruver: You know, asking for help, not being embarrassed to ask for help, not being afraid of being rejected not being, for you know.

140
00:13:46.650 –> 00:13:53.880
Kathy Gruver: You have to tap into that vulnerability and when it comes down to all of this, the communication, the relationships that all has to do with being vulnerable.

141
00:13:54.120 –> 00:14:02.970
Kathy Gruver: So you know we all have that part of ourselves, and we have to find a way to trust that we can be vulnerable around people and that it’s going to work out okay.

142
00:14:03.780 –> 00:14:13.710
Jason Mefford: Well i’ll go there for producing a little bit too, you know before we wrap up there, because you raised a very good point about the vulnerability and this is one of the reasons why this is in here.

143
00:14:13.770 –> 00:14:28.500
Jason Mefford: right if you if you think you know everything you never asked for any help and I got this and i’m going to take care of it, you know, like I said you’re slow boat to China first off right you’re gonna you’re going to progress very slow, but also to everybody around you.

144
00:14:29.700 –> 00:14:47.820
Jason Mefford: You kind of an asshole sometimes right because because you you bring off this error, I know what i’m talking about I know better than you and we try to go through, and show this this air of invincibility.

145
00:14:48.450 –> 00:14:50.160
Jason Mefford: that a lot of people are taught right.

146
00:14:50.520 –> 00:15:04.890
Jason Mefford: In order to be a great leader in order for people to respect me, I have to be invincible I have to be that superhero well even folks you know, in the superhero sagas every superhero has an Achilles heel.

147
00:15:05.280 –> 00:15:14.160
Jason Mefford: Okay, and what’s interesting because you brought up about that vulnerability and again it’s okay as a leader to be vulnerable.

148
00:15:14.310 –> 00:15:15.900
Jason Mefford: In fact, I will tell you.

149
00:15:16.380 –> 00:15:22.140
Jason Mefford: you’re much sexier when you are vulnerable to how do I know this because i’ve watched this in different group settings.

150
00:15:22.230 –> 00:15:35.220
Jason Mefford: yeah where a man who again right man, what are we taught, we have to be invincible, we have to be strong, we have to be the macho one right macho macho man that’s a little different thing but anyway.

151
00:15:38.190 –> 00:15:39.300
Jason Mefford: In seeing.

152
00:15:39.450 –> 00:15:41.880
Jason Mefford: All right, bring you a little village people in this too.

153
00:15:42.330 –> 00:16:00.930
Jason Mefford: But you know that we have to be strong, we have to be macho whatever, but I have seen this play out many, many times, is where a man in a group setting will actually express and show vulnerability show emotion might actually get a little weepy.

154
00:16:01.200 –> 00:16:03.060
Jason Mefford: yeah no I cry sometimes.

155
00:16:03.870 –> 00:16:10.710
Jason Mefford: And I will tell you that’s like the sexiest guy in the room, because all the women are like holy shit that was whoa.

156
00:16:10.860 –> 00:16:12.360
Jason Mefford: that’s sexy right yeah.

157
00:16:12.960 –> 00:16:21.930
Jason Mefford: And so you know again a lot of times this stuff that we’ve been taught is not really true or maybe it was true at some point but it’s not really true anymore.

158
00:16:22.140 –> 00:16:24.810
Kathy Gruver: As we evolve and change because we’re curious learners.

159
00:16:26.490 –> 00:16:28.620
Jason Mefford: So yeah I mean again the best.

160
00:16:29.190 –> 00:16:32.220
Jason Mefford: The best leaders are the ones who actually do ask for help.

161
00:16:32.340 –> 00:16:33.630
Jason Mefford: they’re not afraid.

162
00:16:34.140 –> 00:16:38.520
Jason Mefford: right because i’ll tell you on this too is i’ve seen this transpire both ways.

163
00:16:39.540 –> 00:16:44.370
Jason Mefford: The the people who are willing to hire people smarter and better than them.

164
00:16:44.640 –> 00:16:45.540
Jason Mefford: To work for them.

165
00:16:46.080 –> 00:16:53.280
Jason Mefford: The people that do that grow significantly, and again I worked for one of the people I worked for was a billionaire.

166
00:16:54.030 –> 00:16:55.860
Jason Mefford: guys financially successful.

167
00:16:56.250 –> 00:16:59.310
Jason Mefford: He used to always say that he hired smarter people.

168
00:16:59.340 –> 00:17:02.970
Jason Mefford: than them to run it he he wasn’t.

169
00:17:03.990 –> 00:17:17.160
Jason Mefford: He was he was okay with asking for help with bringing in the best and the brightest people to help him do what he needed to do on the flip side, I remember this one, this one person that I worked with she was very, very.

170
00:17:19.140 –> 00:17:20.280
Jason Mefford: couldn’t be questioned.

171
00:17:21.330 –> 00:17:26.430
Jason Mefford: And so, she would hire people less qualified less talented than her.

172
00:17:26.520 –> 00:17:38.910
Jason Mefford: Sure right because she didn’t she didn’t want to be questioned, whatever else I will tell you that part of the business, there were some really stupid people that worked in that area, in fact I don’t even know.

173
00:17:40.020 –> 00:17:45.570
Jason Mefford: Well, if they would have worked for anybody else those people would have been fired because they were actually an apt.

174
00:17:46.200 –> 00:17:47.520
Kathy Gruver: yeah and their job.

175
00:17:47.730 –> 00:17:57.390
Jason Mefford: And so you can either choose to upscale by asking for help bring in people that are smarter than you to do, or you can go down the spiral.

176
00:17:57.840 –> 00:18:07.080
Kathy Gruver: The other way yeah yeah there’s there really is a lot of choice with this and, unfortunately, so many of the things the seven is.

177
00:18:07.560 –> 00:18:17.550
Kathy Gruver: sort of ingrained in US it’s programmed into us and it’s okay to break out of that programming it’s okay to question those things and make a different choice it’s okay to change.

178
00:18:17.910 –> 00:18:22.890
Kathy Gruver: Which is what we’re talking about in between recording today is about, you know that resistance to change.

179
00:18:23.280 –> 00:18:36.210
Kathy Gruver: And really being self aware and reflective because all of these take kind of sitting with yourself and going, what do I want what are my goals, who am I, and how can I be a better version of myself that’s what all this is about.

180
00:18:36.990 –> 00:18:45.960
Jason Mefford: Rather shoulders there’s some of the some of the people listening, you might be one of them are going hey this sounds like this makes a lot of sense to me, but I don’t know how to do that.

181
00:18:46.500 –> 00:18:55.260
Jason Mefford: Well don’t worry I didn’t know how to do it either right, but why do you think we’re talking about this because I help people do this I help people figure out how to change and how to transform and.

182
00:18:55.770 –> 00:19:03.570
Jason Mefford: and work through and do some of these changes because, like you said got to change is scary we’ve talked about it before on the podcast.

183
00:19:04.920 –> 00:19:09.030
Jason Mefford: But it’s all things that you can learn other people have done this.

184
00:19:09.240 –> 00:19:09.750
Jason Mefford: You know.

185
00:19:10.140 –> 00:19:13.530
Jason Mefford: And if other people have done it don’t you think you can do it too.

186
00:19:13.770 –> 00:19:15.930
Kathy Gruver: yeah yeah we can.

187
00:19:16.260 –> 00:19:18.300
Kathy Gruver: I believe it I believe in all of you.

188
00:19:18.720 –> 00:19:25.080
Kathy Gruver: Yes, yay cool oh my gosh I love this this was such a great idea to go through these seven so to recap.

189
00:19:26.280 –> 00:19:39.090
Kathy Gruver: Relationships think strategically have dynamic communication, be a curious learner be yourself be your authentic self lead from the inside, and ask for help.

190
00:19:39.360 –> 00:19:39.840
Kathy Gruver: I love it.

191
00:19:40.620 –> 00:19:46.350
Jason Mefford: Good stuff well when you do like I said i’ve just seen these are habits that successful people that i’ve studied.

192
00:19:46.680 –> 00:19:54.420
Jason Mefford: yep have they practice, every day, and again I use the word habits, because it’s not something like you can do this for a day or two and then.

193
00:19:54.420 –> 00:20:03.660
Jason Mefford: Forget about it it’s like these are habits that you have to develop and work on every day, every week and do them constantly you know to.

194
00:20:03.840 –> 00:20:07.410
Jason Mefford: be able to stay successful and whatever it is that you’re doing.

195
00:20:07.860 –> 00:20:13.530
Jason Mefford: Whether that’s your personal life, you know, again, all of these things would help you in your personal.
