Nicole Walker’s Interview Commentary
I really enjoyed this interview with Lindsey and I hope you did as well!
I agree with Lindsey’s stance on the importance of energy and paying attention to the energy we put out. As Lindsey stated, energy is always being exchanged, and we should be mindful to ensure we are putting positive energy out into the atmosphere. The energy we radiate affects the lives of those around us, so it is our responsibility to be aware of our energy. Both positive and negative energy creates a ripple effect, and we have the power to decide the type of energy we offer the world. A quote by Jon Gordon reads, “Positive energy is like a muscle. The more you use it the stronger it gets. The stronger it gets the more powerful you become.”
I admire Lindsey’s courage to be vulnerable and accept the help she needed to make her conference more successful. As Lindsey mentioned, “It takes vulnerability to let things go”. As women, we have to be careful of allowing everything to fall on us and utilize our resources to help ease the stresses of life. Yes it has to get done; however, we do not have to be the individuals to do it all!! Accepting help, seeking help, and releasing control over certain aspects of life and business is not always easy; yet, it is essential to be more productive. Successful leaders focus on the goals, and delegate the tasks.
I can relate to Lindsey’s belief that multi-tasking is a myth, as I feel the same. Lindsey and I both believe there is a difference between being busy and being productive, and encourage others to be mindful of how their time is being spent. Lindsey suggested a great tool we can utilize to ensure we are being productive and not just busy, which was a Daily Brain Detox. Clearing out our mind is necessary to properly plan and execute our success strategies. Writing our plans on paper helps to make them real and increases our probability of attainment, and working on items until completion will get us to the goals we desire more efficiently. A quote by Christopher Westra reads “The quickest way to do many things is to do one thing at a time.”
Nicole Walker’s Takeaway of the Week
Lindsey mentioned to importance of taking the purpose from our pain, and using it to be great. As Lindsey suggested, we should think of ourselves as seeds, and realize that we already have everything we need inside of us to be amazing if we allow ourselves the room needed to grow, bloom and blossom.
I will make it my business to nurture the seed within me, so I can continue to reach the heights I have been created to reach because my goal is to maximize my capacity in this world.
A quote by Brian Tracy reads, “You have within you right now, everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you”.
Nicole Walker’s Leadership Challenge
My leadership challenge for you would be to think about the one thing you can take away from this episode and adopt into your life. I know it’s hard to absorb too much information at one time and it’s even harder to try and implement too many changes at once. When I attend a training or listen to podcasts I aim to walk away with a least one thing that stuck out to me and one way that I can change as a result. I challenge you to do the same! If you decide to take me up on my challenge I would love to know about your key take way.
