Level Up! Get Busy Winning or Learning Today (#82)

Level Up! Get Busy Winning or Learning Today (#82)

We will never be the same person again. Every instant, we are either moving forward or backward. My guest today believes that the past exists to teach but not live. Also, he believes that no one should ever feel as though they have no one, and being inspired by that, he works to ensure that no one ever feels alone. He is a United States Navy veteran who served on many deployments to several countries, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, in the early to mid-1990s. Also, he is the host of the “Time to Shine Today” podcast. This podcast provides knowledge nuggets to empower people and teams to level in business and life. Scott Ferguson, a wonderful human being, joins today’s episode to guide us to level up our health, wealth, and personal development.

Bobbi's Takeaways

Talking with Scott is always like a shot of espresso!  Here are my 3 insights for thriving:

  1. You never stay the same; you are either regressing or progressing.  I’ve heard it said this way before, you are growing or slowing dying.  Here is something to try:  At the end of each day, as you are brushing your teeth, look in the mirror and honestly answer:  how did I grow today?

  2. I loved his advice to his former self:  learn from your past but don’t live in your past. 

  3. When he was talking about competing, he said that he doesn’t mind facing better competitors because he is either winning or he is learning.  I think that’s a powerful notion.  Being afraid to lose is one of the things that can keep us in a game that is too small for our potential.
