A vision without action is nothing more than a fantasy, and action is merely a means to an end without a vision.  Having a vision is imagining what life will be like after reaching your goals. Not only is it important to have one, but it is essential to communicate your vision in a way that attracts excitement and action. After all, vision is about your goals and how you plan to achieve them in the future. Jonathan Domsky, business and life coach and founder of Untangled Coaching, joins us on The Greatness Machine for the second time around to talk about vision, purpose, and the common limiting beliefs that stop most people from reaching their full potential.

Topics include: How Jonathan realized he wanted to become a coach Two basic kinds of visions and their definitions The difference between affirmation and declaration Why having a sense of purpose is important What motivates people to take action What is vision and why you must have it Five reasons why hard-working people don’t have to lives and businesses they want What stops people from achieving greatness in their lives And other topics… Connect with Jonathan: Website: https://untangled-coaching.com/  LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/business-personal-growth-coach Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jonathandomsky/  Connect with Darius: Website: https://therealdarius.com/ Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dariusmirshahzadeh/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/whoompdarius/ YouTube: https://therealdarius.com/youtube Book: The Core Value Equation https://www.amazon.com/Core-Value-Equation-Framework-Limitless/dp/1544506708 Learn more about your ad choices.

Success does not necessarily equate to happiness and contentment. We often think that it is by grinding day in and day out that we would find fulfillment. Most of us think of happiness as a destination, one that we can only truly experience when we reach a certain level in our job or hit a certain number in our business.  Unfortunately, that is not the case. While it can be rewarding to achieve our goals, it is also true that sometimes success will only give us momentary happiness before it leaves us feeling empty. Today, I am flying solo to talk about that one special event that opened my eyes to the importance of cultivating gratitude and what it means to lead a fulfilling life.  In this episode, I will share what it means to have a competitive attitude and why healthy competition is essential as we work on our dreams.

Where we spend our time represents what we actually care about, regardless of what we say our goals and priorities are. Prioritizing helps you decide what you need to do, what you don’t need to do, and when you should focus. Priorities are concerns, interests, or desires that come before anything else. But what does your life look like according to your priorities?  Unfortunately, when the thin line between need and want gets blurred, we often get carried away and forget the things that matter most in life. We go from place to place, switch after one task and another, and get lost in the cycle of busyness. Today, I am flying solo to share my personal realization about the importance of setting priorities and how to do it when everything feels important. In this episode, I will talk about how I reached my goal for this year and what I plan to achieve in 2023. I will also discuss how goal-setting, prioritizing, and time-blocking can help one achieve success in both life and work. Topics include: How to set your top priorities in life What made me reassess my priorities Why it is important to make time for yourself Aligning priorities with core values What I did to hit my goal of reading 22 books this year What my goal is for 2023 And other topics… Connect with Darius: Website: https://therealdarius.com/ Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dariusmirshahzadeh/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/whoompdarius/ YouTube: https://therealdarius.com/youtube Book: The Core Value Equation https://www.amazon.com/Core-Value-Equation-Framework-Limitless/dp/1544506708 Learn more about your ad choices.

What makes a good story? Good stories create a sense of connection and are easy to understand. They are delivered with calm confidence and keep the audience interested and engaged. The best storytellers are those who get personal and know how to incorporate their own experiences into the story.  Just like in business, good leaders share their knowledge and personal story to build trust and loyalty between themselves and their team members.

Negotiating anything in life can make even the most socially robust entrepreneurs break out in cold sweats. Many of us are not born with negotiation skills but have to learn how to persuade our audience to be on our side. Learning excellent negotiation skills can take your career to the next level by negotiating a significant raise at your annual performance review. Negotiating a raise is so much easier than negotiating hostage situations like our next guest has while working with the FBI. In this episode, we talk to Chris Voss, also known as “The Master Negotiator.” Chris retired as the lead international kidnapping negotiator for the FBI, is the CEO of the Black Swan Group, and is the author of the national bestseller Never Split the Difference: Negotiating as If Your Life Depended on It, which was one of Darius’s favorite books.   Drawing on his FBI experiences where the stakes are high, Chris Voss’s company, The Black Swan Group, specializes in solving business communication problems using hostage negotiation solutions. Their negotiation methodology focuses on discovering the “black swans,” small pieces of information that have a huge effect on an outcome. The biggest surprise is learning the tactics behind negotiating a business deal are very similar to negotiating with a barricaded gunman for the lives of hostages.   Don’t miss this thrilling episode! What Darius discusses with Chris Voss: How to be an effective negotiator for anything.   How information gathering can give you an edge in the negotiation game. What it takes to subtly convince someone to have it your way. What small things make the biggest impact in negotiations.   How to diffuse a situation by calling out the negative.   How emotions drive human behavior, not logic. The Black Swan Rule: Treat others not the way you want to be treated but the way they want to be treated. Common mistakes in negotiating. Why you are 31% smarter with a positive mindset. Why curiosity is a superpower.   How to make the gunman feel empathy for you!

What’s holding you back? What’s stopping you from achieving the life you have always wanted? Unfortunately, many people experience regret for the things they never did. Perhaps they rejected a wonderful job offer, passed up an opportunity to expand their business, or missed the chance to travel the world.  While there are plenty of reasons for missed opportunities, choosing to live a life in a box is what stops most people from dreaming big dreams.  Today, I am flying solo to talk about how constraints and limitations affect our way of life, how we see ourselves, and how they hold us back from becoming the best version of ourselves. I will also talk about my personal journey of finding success after removing the constraints I previously put around myself.  In this episode, I will discuss the benefits of having a no-constraints mindset and how it taught me to raise the bar higher every time I reach a goal without beating myself up.  Topics include: Breaking free from constraints The one thing that stops people from reaching their full potential The effects of having a no-constraints mindset What I achieved when I started living without constraints The two things I put no constraints around And other topics… Connect with Darius: Website: https://therealdarius.com/ Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dariusmirshahzadeh/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/whoompdarius/ YouTube: https://therealdarius.com/youtube Book: The Core Value Equation https://www.amazon.com/Core-Value-Equation-Framework-Limitless/dp/1544506708 Learn more about your ad choices.

Leadership provides a shared vision that inspires and pushes people in the right direction. A good leader is someone who communicates the policies, eliminates biases and stereotypes, builds confidence, and provides a safe work environment for the members to learn and share their ideas. A good leader understands generational differences and can engage diverse generations in the workplace. After all, great results can be achieved when individual members respect their differences in perspective and learn from each other’s ability to solve problems. Tim Elmore, who is the founder and CEO of Growing Leaders, was listed in the Top 100 Leadership Speakers in America by Inc. magazine. He has written over 35 books, including the best-selling Habitudes: Images That Form Leadership Habits and Attitudes, and is now set to launch his new book titled, A New Kind of Diversity.

Are you giving yourself the gift of dreaming? Or are you only grinding hard towards your goals? Many people think that dreams will take you nowhere unless you embrace the grind and take action towards achieving them. However, they allow you to see the future with optimism and to see what’s impossible become possible.  Today, I am flying solo to talk about dreams and goals and their big differences, how they affect our disposition towards success, and what it means to allow ourselves to just dream and stop beating ourselves up when things don’t turn out right. In this episode, I will discuss what Ed Mylett’s book The Power of One More made me realize about my dreams and goals. I will also talk about my motivation for starting my podcast, The Greatness Machine, and what I aspire to achieve for the show.  Topics include: The key difference between dreams and goals The realizations I got after reading The Power of One More by Ed Mylett Why I decided to start The Greatness Machine podcast Why you need to give yourself the gift of dreaming And other topics… Connect with Darius: Website: https://therealdarius.com/ Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dariusmirshahzadeh/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/whoompdarius/ YouTube: https://therealdarius.com/youtube Book: The Core Value Equation https://www.amazon.com/Core-Value-Equation-Framework-Limitless/dp/1544506708 Learn more about your ad choices.

Unconscious leaders are expert decision-makers and have a clear vision of what they want to achieve regardless of how their decisions or behavior can affect others. They tend to focus on the external environment and are driven by their emotional responses. Conscious leaders, on the other hand, are those who lead with full awareness, authenticity, intentionality and hold themselves accountable. Rather than focusing on oneself, conscious leadership underlines the purpose of the organization as a whole. Nathanael Chawkin, founder and CEO of Palæstra Leadership, takes us back to when he learned about conscious leadership and how his parents played a vital role in introducing him to meditation and consciousness. He also talks about his work with Palæstra Leadership, where he specializes in transforming organizational culture by coaching executive dynamics.  In this episode, Darius and Nathanael discuss the impact of conscious leadership in an organization, the benefits of meditation, the differences between spirituality and religion, and it is important for a leader to have a greater purpose. Topics include: Nathanael looks back on how he started conscious leadership How Nathanael started working for the Stagen Leadership Academy What is conscious leadership, and why it is important How Nathanael started meditating at a young age Understanding spirituality and religion Why it matters to have a higher purpose as a leader The benefits of higher intelligence in humans The importance of self-knowledge  Palæstra Leadership and what it offers Nathanael talks about Awakening Leadership and their upcoming plant medicine retreat in Costa Rica And other topics… Resources mentioned: How To Change Your Mind by Michael Pollan: https://www.amazon.com/Change-Your-Mind-Consciousness-Transcendence/dp/1594204225  Connect with Nathanael: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nathanael.chawkin/?hl=en  LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/nchawkin/  Palæstra Leadership: https://www.thepalaestra.com/  Awakening Leadership: https://awakeningleadership.org/  Connect with Darius: Website: https://therealdarius.com/ Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dariusmirshahzadeh/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/whoompdarius/ YouTube: https://therealdarius.com/youtube Book: The Core Value Equation https://www.amazon.com/Core-Value-Equation-Framework-Limitless/dp/1544506708 Learn more about your ad choices.
