3 Simple Steps One Entreprenuer Took to Go From Homeless Shelters to Impacting Thousands – Kyle Lipton

Published

on

Welcome once more to the “How to Be a Grownup Podcast Breakdown”!  My name is Erik Andress and I am the host of this show.  Today, I am humbled and grateful to bring you the words and wisdom of entrepreneur Kyle Lipton!  He is a walking testament to what we can accomplish when we align with our true purpose in the universe and have a positive vision for our future.

Check out this podcast interview with Kyle to learn all his tips, tricks, and techniques that he wants you to know to live a empowered life:


In this podcast, Kyle has dropped some powerful knowledge and discusses his past hardship that has given him a rare glimpse into how to access a drive and clarity of purpose that many entrepreneurs can only dream of having!

While there were a lot of gems this inspiring entrepreneur dropped, here are the three most important ways Kyle believes that you can do to exponentially increase the abundance in your life:

1. The instruction booklet for “lasting success” is there, you just need to go and get it

We live in an amazing time in human history.  Right now, in your pants pocket or purse is a small device that has access to all the knowledge that humanity has to offer.  Your cell phone, tablet, or personal computer is a key to open the door to virtually infinite free knowledge that can help you.  Start listening to podcasts.  Understand that there are so many podcasters that bring you weekly shows that can bring you knowledge, on a weekly basis, that could rival college courses taught on similar topics in years past.  Use your library card!  There is a plethora of information just waiting for you to unlock it in countless tomes that have been written by powerful women and men that want to guide you towards the life that you deserve to be living.  

When we expand the knowledge that we have at our fingertips, we drastically increase the tools we have to deal with any difficult situation.  Don’t curtail your ability to be a beast at life.  Give yourself every opportunity, every chance, every last possibility that you that you can by becoming a voracious life-long learner!

“If you are not willing to learn, nobody can help you.  If you determined to learn, nobody can stop you.” – Anonymous

2. Your circumstances do not define you, your work ethic does

Kyle spoke beautifully about his past experiences with financial hardship and the steps that he took to remove himself from that mindset.  There is a wonderful parable, that I have said on the podcast before, that I think addresses this point nicely.

Once upon a time, there was a young man that was facing a lot of challenges in his life.  His grades were in the toilet, his girlfriend has just broken up with him, and his car had just gotten towed.  On top of all of that, in the middle of the night, he had heard his parents arguing about a potential impending bankruptcy.  Feeling totally overwhelmed, one night he finally broke down in front of her Dad and told him everything that was weighing on his shoulders.  Without a word, his father brought him into the kitchen and put two pots on the stove, lit the burners, and instructed his son to watch.

As the pots began to simmer and boil, his father dropped an egg in one pot and a potato in the other.  The son began to protest and say that he really needed advice from his father, but the Dad once more instructed him to be quiet and watch.  Soon, the Dad ladled the egg and the potato out onto the countertop and allowed them to cool.  The father waved his son over and asked him to look closely.  “What do you see son?” the father asked with an amused smile on his face.

“A potato and an egg,” the son replied hastily.  “What does this have to do with anything Dad?”

His father then explained that the potato and the egg had each faced the same struggles and hardship-the boiling water. However, they had reacted differently from each other. The potato went in strong, unrelenting and tough, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak. The egg was fragile, with the thin shell protecting its insides until it was put in the boiling water.  From there, the egg turned into something chewy and durable.

The father put his hand on the son’s shoulder and said, “It is not the adversity we face, but rather what we are made of.  We all have pain, heartbreak, and hopelessness in our lives.  It is how we face down our challenges that define who we are as men.”

We must push ourselves to believe that this storm will pass.  When we decide that we are stronger than our hardships, when we decide that we must persevere, that is when we are truly embarking on the journey towards real success.

Champions keep going even when they don’t have anything left in the tank. Eric Thomas

3. You won’t move forward in life, if you don’t start asking for help

Those of us that choose to frequent a website like this live in a different kind of culture than most of our fellow Americans.  We choose to prize personality responsibility.  We choose to, in the words of the ex-Navy Seal Jocko Willink, take “extreme ownership” of our actions and outcomes in our life.  That is why it can be so difficult for us to reach out and ask for guidance or aid when we reach a deadend in our knowledge of any given topic.  It does not make you weak to ask for people to point you in the direction of new and sustainable success.  If you want to get into the best shape of your life, hiring a personal trainer can help you get there.  If you want to bring your business to the next level, there are countless coaches, webinars, and programs out there to help you move forward in the way that makes best sense for you.  If you want to strengthen your relationship or become the best parent that you are capable of being, it is vital for you to seek knowledge for trained professionals.  

There is no weakness in asking for help when your goal is to better yourself.  Reach out to people in your community or those online that you could learn from.  Teachers are not relegated to the classrooms in your high school or college.  There are so many people out there, in fitness, in business, in the therapeutic fields, in the trades that have valuable information that you can use to drastically increase your quality of life.

“The only mistake you can make is not asking for help.” – Sandeep Jauhar

Is Fear of Failure Keeping You Stuck in a Lifeless Job? Here Are 5 Things to Do

Published

on

stuck in a job you hate

Are you stuck in a job that doesn’t fulfill you and you can’t seem to find a way out? Chances are that your fear of failure is holding you back. You constantly dream of change, but the dream is quickly replaced by worse case scenarios or self-doubt: What if you don’t find a better job? What if you don’t stand out in a competitive market? What will others think if it doesn’t work out?

At the end of this line of reasoning is the conviction that you’re not the only one who’s not satisfied, and that’s just how life goes. After all, bills won’t pay themselves, right? So you keep toiling away, increasing your level of self-dissatisfaction while quietly hoping that things will somehow improve on their own.

Fear becomes the self-imposed obstacle that prevents you from taking the steps that are necessary for the change(s) you long for. I can recall numerous times in my life where I gave in to my fears and compromised with my goals and desires to play it safe. I was stuck and my dream life and career felt so out of reach. The voice of my inner critic showed up every time I attempted change, to convince me I wasn’t ready and I didn’t have enough to shift.

So how do we overcome the fear of failure, so we can propel change? By removing the notion that change is a threat. Our ego thrives on fear. Its sole purpose is to keep us safe and protect us from taking risks. When we perceive a threat we activate the part of our brain called “amygdala” and we go into fight, flight or freeze mode.

Our simple survival mechanism limits our potential by overemphasizing the fear of failure. Fight or Flight takes hold, but growth does not. We survive, but we don’t thrive, and therein lies the problem. We crave meaningful work that doesn’t drain us, but fulfills us and makes us happy. So how do we take the leap? (more…)
