Donna Kunde - “The Business Owner’s Bookshelf”
PROFIT RADIO..."Grow With Us"
The Business Owner’s Bookshelf will take you, the business owner, on a journey inside the world of several classic business building books and the wisdom they contain. The focus of this season is preparing you to form your first Inner Circle of power partners. Our method will be to dissect several classic business books and the wisdoms and truths they contain.
Strong Inner Circles don't come together by accident. Who you are is who you attract. First we will learn how to calibrate our thinking. Once calibrated, you will be able to choose your power partners and make the most of your newly formed relationships.
“Men are anxious to improve their circumstances but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound.” James Allen, As a Man Thinketh
...Remain bound. When I first read this quote I was not in a good place in my life or my business. I wanted to be free to choose my circumstances and get off the hamster wheel that was my life. Over the next several years, I learned how to THINK in a way that opened doors of opportunity and set my life in motion to start a new journey. I’m not going to lie, the journey I am on still has detours, speed bumps and hills to climb, but now I know what to do to get back on course. Every unpleasant situation has a lesson to learn. Learn the lesson. Only then can you move forward. That is what we will be exploring over the next 8 weeks.
I will be sharing my 35 years of experience in the cognitive and behavioral sciences. You will also get to benefit from my expertise as a coach and as a certified hypnotherapist. The coach will be asking powerful questions to jumpstart your thinking. The hypnotherapist will be sharing insight into how to recognize your current thinking patterns and steps you can take to begin thinking in more constructive ways.
Today’s show is titled, “Thoughts Become Things.” During the next hour, I am going to present the argument that what we think precedes what we get. Inevitably when this idea is mentioned, counter arguments are posed regarding things like natural disasters, pandemics and serious crimes or health related issues. To that I say, life will be life. It is not a matter of what happens to us as much as it is how we respond to what happens to us. In life, we are always presented with choices in how we act and react. It is this line of thinking that will be our focus today.
In his book, “As a Man Thinketh,” James Allen says, “on the subject of the power of thought....it’s object being to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that….They themselves are the makers of themselves….by virtue of the thoughts which they choose and encourage; that mind is the master-weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance, and that, as they may have hitherto woven in ignorance and pain they may now weave in enlightenment and happiness.”
As we shape our thoughts, they are reflected back as our circumstances and our results. This series is going to unlock the secrets of the creative process and how to begin seeing through your current circumstances in order to truly create the business and life you desire.
Most people unknowingly use the re-creative process in their lives, recreating the same thoughts over and over again on autopilot. Through awareness, we can change the course of our business by taking the plane off autopilot and charting a course that better serves us.
We will explore thinking gems from several impactful books including “As a Man Thinketh,” by James Allen; “Think and Grow Rich,” by Napoleon Hill and “Psycho Cybernetics,” by Maxwell Maltz. Many concepts will be brand new to you. Let’s journey together into the world of discovery!
I encourage you to listen to this series with an open mind and be willing to receive new ideas. Then continue the conversation in a special group I have created just for you in our Community of Commerce called The Business Owner's Bookshelf where I have put downloadable copies of two of the books we will be exploring. The easiest way to listen and engage is inside the IBGR app for Android or iOS. See you on the inside...
Objectives - The WHY
We are embarking on a new journey. Over the next eight weeks, I’m going to invite you to explore your current thinking. Along the way, you will learn how to tap into your creative process. This will allow you to become the master of your thoughts instead of recreating the same thoughts over and over again on autopilot. Isn’t it time to stop running the race on the hamster wheel of life and start covering actual ground on your way towards your goals and dreams?
