Episode 044: Pleasure Triggers and Getting Leverage  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips talks about establishing your pleasure and leverage triggers. Set a goal that you want to complete in 4-weeks. Next, figure out what your reward will be if you GET the task done. Will you go to the spa? Or eat some chocolate? Next, establish your leverage trigger, too. What will you DO if you DON’T get your goal accomplished in four weeks? Will you dump paint on your car? Will you cut your beard off? Find BOTH your pleasure and leverage triggers.  

0:21 – Welcome!  

0:27 – I am incredibly blessed to run this inner circle of people who are mostly entrepreneurs. These are people that are working towards scaling their business. They have to work on their messaging, working on their landing page, and more! It’s definitely a process. It doesn’t happen overnight. There are coaching calls and a retreat at the end of the year. At the end of the retreat, we encouraged them to find the ONE thing that they want to accomplish in the next four weeks. They have to pick ONE thing to focus on.  

2:02 – It’s good to celebrate your small victories. We went around the room and shared our pleasure triggers. Some of the answers were going to dinner, getting a pedicure, going for a hike, etc.  

3:20 – Pick, also, your leverage if you DON’T get it done. Sometimes we are triggered by the reward, but sometimes we are triggered by a consequence. For example dye your hair purple, cut your surfboard in half, cutoff your beard. Have accountability.  

5:06 – You can go extreme with your leverage trigger or be subtler.

1:10 – We got done with a great week from our past retreat! There were so many great takeaways.  

1:28 – One theme that I saw come up a lot is perfectionism.  

1:45 – You are afraid of not being perfect – you don’t do that task – then you are actually failing!  

2:28 – Go and do it, and you will be partially there!  

2:46 – You don’t have the right to do that anymore to yourself.  

2:58 – This is true for any of your big dreams. For example: writing that book, or talking at a webinar.  

3:18 – It’s a different way of looking at it. You have to start the task in order to achieve your goals. Don’t allow yourself to be paused in a state of trying to be “perfect” – there is no such thing!

Episode 041: How to Burn Your Fears  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips encourages you to overcome your fears and obstacles.

0:21 – Welcome!

0:31 – The first few days we were doing our social media cash machine launch.  

1:05 – Some of these people serve people on a one-to-one, and then they launch it to the general public.  

1:41 – An example of this is one woman helps the community with health and diet. Another example is a person helps the community with their sales.  

2:45 – Who were YOU created to serve? By doing this you, you are acknowledging your calling and your avatar.  

3:53 – There are people out there praying that YOU are able to serve them. You can’t let your fears get in the way, because then you cannot serve them.  

4:19 – Write down your fears. Write down your limiting beliefs. Take those notes and set it on fire! Literally, burn the limiting fears, obstacles, and fears. It shows you that you had the power all along and that you have control. It can be an amazing experience!  

5:18 – One of my clients is a private investigator and his computer desktop picture is of this fire pit.  

5:45 – If you can’t burn your fears, then crumple it or tear it up to itty-bitty pieces! Take a physical action to say “goodbye” to your limiting beliefs!

Episode 040: Getting Through the Hard Times  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips talks about changing poor habits to good habits! We are creatures of routine and when you change that routine, your mind might not like it at first. That’s okay! If you take away a puppy’s daily treat, will it be happy on day one or day two? No, because it was used to that daily treat. However! You decided not to give the puppy the snack, anymore, because health-wise it wasn’t the best for it; same for your life. Choose a lifestyle and habits that will help serve you towards your big goals!  

0:21 – Welcome!  

0:25 – Today’s topic: Let’s change some bad habits. Perhaps not snacking at nighttime and instead workout. Limit your time on social media, so you are not comparing yourself to others as much.  

1:04 – It’s hard to make changes because your brain is used to a certain lifestyle and now you’ve changed the routine. Of course, it will be hard!  

1:10 – Kim gives an example of a puppy. Listen here!  

1:46 – Changing habits can be hard! Keep pushing yourself forward, and know that you haven’t given up! When you get those feelings, take a pause, and smile because that means you are headed in the right direction!

Episode 039: Stop Making Excuses  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips talks about taking action steps towards your goals. When you say to yourself, “I want to...” or “I am going to...” ask yourself this one question: “What are you actually doing to achieve your dream?” If you just wish and hope for your dream, it will never come true. You actually have to put forth the effort to make your dreams a reality. Check out today’s episode to hear Kim’s advice!  

0:21 – Welcome!  

0:27 – Traveling as much as I do, I get to have tons of great conversations! I can hear about their dreams, their families and more! I hear “what they PLAN” to do.  

1:11 – Who are you to have these big dreams and NOT do anything about it? Why aren’t you making any progress? Stop dreaming if you aren’t willing to make progress!  

1:42 – DREAM HUGE! Don’t have it sit there in the dream phase, make plans! Do you want to talk about it or are you scheduling these action steps?  

2:36 – Examples: Go to LINKEDIN and make those contacts! What is the topic of your book?  

2:57 – When we stay in this wishy-washy state we are not using God’s given talents that He gave us. Make the next step and schedule it in your calendar!  

3:45 – Schedule it and make it happen!

Episode 038: Why Think Positive?  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips talks about the power of thinking positively. Give your subconscious some positive direction, and you will be quite surprised! It’s okay to doubt, but don’t stay there for too long. Say, “I don’t know if I can do that, but I am going to succeed anyway!” It’s amazing to see how your subconscious works when you feed it positive statements. Check out today’s episode to hear Kim’s advice!  

0:21 – Welcome!  

0:25 – High Point University  

0:45 – I worked with High Point University as a marketing consultant to help their team with social media.  

0:55 – They gave me a bunch of different books, which are excellent!  

1:06 – Book: “Daily Motivation: 365 Messages...” by Nido R. Qubein  

1:14 – Think positive! Your subconscious helps you along the pathway to success. This is why you don’t want to think negatively because it will cause the opposite effect.  

2:14 – Give your subconscious some direction!  

2:32 – Statement: I don’t know if I can do that, but I am going to succeed anyway!  

2:48 – The more you feed those thoughts to your brain – the more it will happen!

Episode 037: Seek Coaching  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips talks about seeking wise counsel from people who are willing to help. It’s important to be in a state of vulnerability to learn and grow.

0:21 – Welcome!  

0:30 – Today’s topic: Seek Coaching!  

0:39 – People want to appear perfect, but it’s important to seek out wise advice! Nobody expects you to be perfect.  

1:20 – Nobody joins our Facebook groups because they already have an established, amazing network system! They join because they want new strategies for their business. They are looking to better themselves and their business!

2:16 – Be willing to be coached!

Episode 036: When You Pause Progress  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips talks about the gaps in our productivity. We make these goals and as we are progressing along we will have gaps within our time and productivity. It’s just a fact of life. What is important is how we start, again, after those gaps! It doesn’t matter if it’s been a few days, months or even years! Get back on track and start again. Progress is progress and you need to keep moving forward!  

0:21 – Welcome!  

0:27 – What do you do when you have a pause?  

0:34 – I had some days between recording sessions of the podcast.  

0:51 – I am making daily choices. I am not being made to do anything I don’t want to do.  

1:07 – Of course, I didn’t choose my flight delay or traffic.  

1:27 – I had some gaps in my recording sessions for the podcast. I chose to come back to recording after that small gap in my schedule.  

2:16 – This is NOT true: “If it’s not perfect – why bother to do it at all?!”  

2:23 – There will be lapses of time in our schedule and our productivity.  

2:31 – You don’t stop! You keep making progress! I don’t care if your gap is a few hours/days/months/years. It doesn’t matter!  

3:03 – It’s just a fact that it hasn’t happened, yet. BUT IT CAN! It starts with you taking the next step!  

3:10 – Take the next step because you, my friend, were made to thrive!

2:30 – Ask the unasked question.  

2:49 – For example: I want to know more about what YOU want.  

3:12 – This way it doesn’t go against the grain.  

3:29 – Find questions about what the other person wants or what they are looking for.  

3:50 – We hear through this funnel.  

3:53 – Book: “I Said This, You Heard That” by Kathleen Edelman

1:33 – This is affirming negative energy that won’t help you towards reaching your goals.

Episode 032: Do the Easy Tasks  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips talks about when you should complete certain tasks. There are low and high-energy times of the day for everyone. Consider completing the harder tasks during a time when you are inspired, thriving, and focused. The opposite, then, is true for the easier tasks. Complete these tasks when you have the least amount of energy. Check out today’s episode for all of the details!  

0:21 – Welcome!  

0:25 – It’s okay to do the easy things that bring you joy! Not all of your work has to be hard!  

0:31 – Today’s topic is: Do The Easy Tasks  

0:55 – Listen to past episodes on the “Power Hour!”  

1:05 – There are other times of the day where people are least productive. My least productive time is around 2:00 P.M. This is the time that I will NOT schedule things that drain my energy. I want to be super focused on my high priority tasks, so I complete those during my power hour!  

1:51 – In the morning, during my power hour, I WANT to do the easy things but I MUST complete the tasks that are energy consuming!  

2:21 – Get the Made To Thrive Planner!  

2:37 – Give yourself a reward after you have completed a non-favorite task.  

3:15 – When is it best for you to complete the easy tasks? Perhaps complete the less-complicated tasks during a low-energy time of the day for you. I would finish your harder tasks during a time when you are the most productive. This way you have the adequate energy to knock-it-out-of-the-park!

Episode 031: What To Do If They Won’t Change With You  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips talks about you working on yourself! As you are improving yourself, there might come a time when the people in your life don’t jump onboard. Don’t worry! This has nothing to do with you and your choices. You are working towards your big goals and Kim advises that you focus on just that. The people in your life may feel reluctant to the changes, because they didn’t ask for change. Don’t judge or nag them, just let them be. When they see how the positive change in your life is making you more joyful, then it will be contagious and they may hop on board, too!  

0:21 – Welcome!  

0:25 – Today’s Topic: What To Do If They Won’t Change With You?  

0:30 – You are setting new to-do lists and this can cause a lot of flack with the different people in your life. Maybe the people in your life weren’t ready for this change.  

1:09 – Just like brand new Christians who have a passion to tell others about their new faith!  

1:26 – I have a strong Christian faith. When you are in the mountaintop experience not everyone will jump onboard.  

1:56 – They didn’t ask for the change. If they come to you with negative commentary it’s not about you, it’s their own insecurities.  

2:29 – Like when going to dinner and someone orders a huge cheesecake. But! If you don’t order it, too, then they question your order choice of ordering a salad instead.  

3:23 – We are normalized when everyone is acting the same.  

3:39 – You are just having a salad?! It has nothing to do with you, if they make such a comment.  

3:56 – It’s not your job to change them, but your job is to show them love!  

4:25 – What do you do instead? Work on a positive mindset.  

4:35 – Kim walks you through the dinner experience at a restaurant. Your order is: sparkling water, and a chicken salad. If your spouse asks you “why” you just say, “this makes me feel good.” You can continue saying, “I like being with you, but this is my food order choice tonight.” There is no judgment there, but you are stating what works well for you.  

5:50 – What you can do is work on yourself. By you working on YOU, they will see the joy and health that you have, and they might want the same for themselves, too!  

6:54 – Be an inspiration, not a nag. Make people want what YOU have! This way they are making their own choice and you aren’t forcing them to change with you.

Episode 029: Trading Places  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips talks about getting advice from the right people. Talk to people who have walked the walk that you are pursuing. Kim advises that you don’t get advice just from anyone, because everyone has his or her own opinion. Take guidance from the people you admire and who have succeeded in the field in which you want to succeed in. Check out today’s episode for more details!  

0:21 – Welcome!  

0:27 – Who do you listen to? Everyone has an opinion, but should you take their advice? Check it out! Take advice from people that you’d want to change places with. If a person’s life is a hot mess, why would you want to hear their advice?  

1:14 – The same goes for running a business.  

1:34 – We can seek feedback, but only get advice from the people who you’d want to change places with.  

1:43 – Another example! When you want to get advice, get the advice from someone who has ACTUALLY done the thing that you want to accomplish. This will save you tons of time. They were the ones who figured out how to succeed, so take their advice.  

3:08 – I have single, married, divorced friends. I talk to them about my life, but I am not going to talk to my best friend who is single about raising kids. I will talk to my mom who is married and has raised her children in a wonderful way.  

3:56 – Think about “who” you are getting advice from. This is so important.  

4:02 – You, my friend, were made to thrive!

Check out today’s episode for all of the details!  

0:21 – Welcome! I just finished my workout!  

0:29 – How to get those big goals done when you just don’t want to!  

0:40 – Nobody is looking over my shoulder, but I went out and completed my run. Before I did my run, I put on my workout clothes. I dressed myself in my workout pants, my tennis shoes in order to get myself ready and pumped!  

1:50 – I am not making up my schedule as I am going along. I have it written down in advance!  

2:01 – I am constantly talking to my “friend” Shelia who is always trying to get me to binge on Bravo. I don’t want to flake out on my friend, so I have to show up.  

2:49 – I told my mom that I was going to go out on my run. I have to report back to her and that is accountability. I don’t want to lie or cheat the system.  

3:13 – Plan it. Schedule it. Set the time and date.  

3:28 – If you want to write “X” amount of pages, make sure your computer is charged and ready to go before you sit down.  

3:43 – I used to go to bed with my workout clothes on, so when I woke up in the morning I was more inclined to go and workout.

How many of you have a flaky friend who misses their appointments, and lunch dates with you? After a few times, you stop making plans with said friend, because it’s annoying and a hassle on your schedule.

God took these clients (who were underpaying us) out of my hands in order for me to fulfill my purpose.  

5:34 – My true calling in life is talking to you all. My tribe.  

5:44 – I have no sadness or ill will for this person because I have complete peace about it now. Trust me, it was a process to get to this level of understanding and gratitude.

6:40 – Kim walks you through a meditation. Take a big, deep breath and think about that moment and thank God for it. Picture the moment and place that moment inside of a box that is wrapped beautifully. This box has a big, red satin bow on it and God hands you the box! You open the box, you pull on the ribbon, and it becomes to unravel. You ask God, “Why would you let this happen to me, Lord?” He says, “This is to allow you to be the person you’re meant to be!”  

8:56 – Say: “God, thank you for creating that moment so I could grow. Thank you for the outcomes, and the people that came out of that moment.”  

Tie the ribbon around your wrist so you can remember that you let go of your feelings surrounding the moment, and to remember how you’ve grown! Resources Mentioned:

2:31 – I was not created to create things for him. I was created to create content for YOU!  

2:40 – Are you serving THE people that you are meant to serve?  

2:53 – If you want to write a book, go talk to an author. If you want to run a marathon, go talk to an athlete.

1:15 – When it comes to REAL we tend not to like it. My daughter’s favorite restaurant is Chili’s and we usually go twice a month. We go when she has achieved a goal.

2:37 – When we see that blueprint do we really stick to the whole thing or only parts of it?

Episode 19: Consistency  

In today’s episode of Made to Thrive, Kim Walsh Philips talks about being consistent. Kim encourages you to create mini-milestones and mini-wins along the path to your larger goal. We can easily get off-track of our main goal because we are not being satisfied along the way. We can get distracted with social media and potentially waste time. We lean into such things, (like social media) because we are instantly gratified. Be careful, though! This could be a time waster and get us off-track of our goals. Instead, set mini-goals along the way and once you’ve reached that goal, you can celebrate the small victories! Be consistent, and in the end, you will be rewarded thoroughly!

4:54 – Be consistent, take the next step forward, and plan mini-celebrations along the way!
