Master the Key: How to Free Your Potential with Mike Flynn


Everyone is talking about finding your “why” or your purpose in life. The idea is that once you know your why, everything else falls into place. But what if you don’t know your why or how to find it? What do you do when you realize you are trapped in a story that you would have never written for yourself? How do you become who you were created to be?

Today we have Mike Flynn back on the show. He is the host of the Impact Entrepreneur podcast and has just released his new book, Master the Key: A Story to Free Your Potential, Find Meaning and Live Life on Purpose.

Mike is going to teach us the 4 elements of ownership, why me must learn to sit in silence with ourselves, and how to find our why. He also reveals the most important key to stepping into our destiny—to believe we are worthy of it.

 

Mike Flynn

Mike Flynn has been advising individuals, as well as executives of companies large and small since 2005. And beginning in 2009, he felt called to do something more, something even greater. Mike commenced that journey in 2015 when he launched a podcast called The Impact Entrepreneur Show. Since then, he has had nearly 200 one-on-one conversations with some of the worlds most elite athletes, thinkers and entrepreneurs in an effort to discover how they are using their personal stories to have a game changing impact in the lives of others.

Master the Key

Master the Key is unlike any personal development book you’ve ever read. Mike illustrates the human quest to find meaning in life through a fictional story that leads readers to the truth.

His main character, Steve, suffers a financial downfall that leads him to a personal crisis. Through a series of conversations with a few wise people, he learns why his life is all wrong.

These factors have prevented him from a meaningful life:

  • Unconsciously allowing a circumstance or someone else’s story direct one’s self-narrative
  • Chaining one’s gifts to the pursuit of status and achievement
  • Allowing a comfort or fear to replace action
  • Misunderstanding the power of community

What You’ll Learn

  • How Mike Flynn’s fictional story helps people tap into and free their potential in a way they never expected or experienced before
  • Why simply knowing our “why” is not enough for us to be successful when pursuing our purpose in life
  • What we have to do before we find our why, which is to believe we are worthy of one
  • How to overcome the negative thoughts you are feeding yourself mentally
  • Why owning your worth and gifts is not egotistical but is actually the best way you can help others
  • How to analyze adversity in a way that it ferments into a fine wine that serves you
  • How to master your narrative and make your own story
  • How we oftentimes believe that if we don’t have the perceived outward success the world has prescribed for us, then we think we’re not worthy of it
  • How the only way to get what we’re worthy of is to be courageous and do something uncomfortable while focusing on a vision that things can be different
  • How to get out of your own way by sitting in silence with yourself
  • The importance of reflecting on the negative events and experiences of the past
  • How to overcome the belief that you are not good enough
  • Why silence scares us so much
  • Developing time tolerance
  • The number one thing a man wants from his spouse—her belief in him
  • How our gifts are often chained to the pursuit of status and achievement
  • How we show up in the world is usually how someone else expects us to show up in the world
  • The first step to Mastering the Key
  • How to own your story
  • How to own your gifts
  • The transformation that occurs when you shed others’ expectations
  • Unchaining your gifts so that you are free to rebuild yourself in your own way
  • When you’re not being intentional about your life, you use your gifts for the wrong purpose. That is why it doesn’t feel fulfilling.
  • The willingness to practice and hone
  • Owning action and owning your community
  • How we set ourselves up for compounding failure when we don’t know our worth
  • Why it may be dangerous to quit a job to pursue a passion
  • What to do before considering taking this leap

journey inward

A Father’s Journey Inward

On Thursdays we like to interview every day dads. Today we talk to Dad Edge Alliance member, Ben. His mission was to become the best father he could be to his 6 year old son and a 4 year old daughter. He knew that they were picking up on what he did, not what he said, but sometimes he had a hard time being calm. After struggling with anxiety most of his life, he realized he needed to find a way to stay patient, especially when the kids were crying and things were stressful with work.

Ben had to go inward to face his flaws, to confront the truth about who he was and who he wanted to be. This unlocked the journey to living his life according to his values, to staying calm through the storm by accepting others as they are and letting go of the need to control.

The less pressure you exert, the more influence you have. Accept others and don’t control.

The Secrets to Achieving Wildly Important Goals with Mark Divine

The Secrets to Achieving Wildly Important Goals with Mark Divine


At the start of the year, we are always thinking about goals like losing extra weight, eating healthier, and managing our finances more efficiently, but what about wildly important goals? Have you ever set a goal so challenging that it takes you beyond your limits and changes you forever?

Today’s guest is Mark Divine. He is a former Navy SEAL commander, founder of SEALfit, and author of The Unbeatable Mind. His book was the inspiration for The Dad Edge and he was the first big guest on the show. Mark Divine just completed a burpee challenge to raise money and awareness for veteran suicides, which occur at the horrifying rate of every 22 seconds. This wasn’t a one-time event, but a year-long commitment of doing 300 burpees every single day.

Mark talks about how he pulls through and even thrives on these kinds of challenges. It’s not all grit. He uses breathing techniques, yoga, meditation, and intuition. You will be awed by the insights he shares in this interview. Save this episode to stay connected to your goals so that you can enjoy the fruits of your labor at the end of this year.

'Life is suffering. When we embrace the pain and use it for personal growth, that’s when we start to experience the magic.'—Mark Divine @UnbeatableLife #personalgrowth #adversity #mindset Click To Tweet
