One of ET's favorite quotes and one he lives by is, "Where your focus goes, your energy flows." On today's podcast, CJ plays a clip of a viral ET moment where E calls out multiple excuses given for why he can't be successful. These excuses are all based on emotion instead of rational thought. Right now, across the country and the world, emotions are running higher than usual and, given current events, this is understandable and, expected. But, we know from experience that decisions and actions taken based on emotion instead of facts and principles don't always give us the outcomes we've sought. Today, ET and the guys offer tangible, strategic steps to creating real and, sustainable change whose roots are anchored in facts, not feelings.

This week the conversation focuses on solutions with honorary 5th member of the podcast squad, Josh Hatch, joining the discussion.  What are the next steps to educating White people on the realities of systemic racism? How do we make permanent changes in the hearts and minds of the people that will shut down systemic racism and allow equity for everyone?

Today's Podcast is being released during one of the most tumultuous and tragic periods in our country's recent history. The past several weeks have seen the murders of innocent Black Americans at the hands of law enforcement-Breonna Taylor and George Floyd.  And, the revelation that earlier this year, Ahmaud Arbery, a young Black man out for a run in rural Georgia, had been hunted down and murdered by a band of emboldened and empowered racists. His crime, jogging in a neighborhood they felt he had no business.     In the face of these excruciating losses, and after hearing the same bigoted arguments made in justification of their deaths,  our country and, the world screamed in unison, "ENOUGH!"  We've all had enough. We're fed up with Bigotry, fed up with our communities being underserved and underrepresented and blamed for the ills that lack of support has nurtured, fed up with institutionalized, systemic racism, fed up with blatant in your face racism, inequality and injustice.   Collectively, we are tired.    Sadly, but not surprisingly, each of the guys has experienced racism and knows it's as American as Apple Pie and Baseball. Today, they've brought their perspectives and experiences to the Podcast. Jemal King, a former police officer, CJ, a bi-racial man, Karl, a native of Barbados, and ET, who grew up in the inner cities of Chicago and Detroit, who's seen it all. Rich or poor, educated or not, racism considers none of that. It discriminates equally and plays itself out in the daily lives of people of color worldwide. Today's Podcast will shed some light on what that continues to look like for this fantastic foursome.     The Secret to Success Topics: [01:45] - Trey’s Comedy Corner [07:21] - George Floyd  [14:00] - Forever Ago [28:00] - It Ain’t For Them [40:00] - Walk With Us [48:25] - As A Officer [1:03:00] - The Disconnect [1:20:00] - Where Do You Stand? [1:41:00] - Don’t Quit Secrets 2 Success: If you’ve never lived in the jungle you don’t know how the Tiger and the Bears move. Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. White people can’t thrive in this country without black people. Cry if you will, rest if you must, but don’t quit.

The topic of money is one that most people shy away from. Like, politics,  religion, and sex,  money is a subject so taboo it's never to be discussed casually, among strangers or, at Holiday, family functions. At least that's what we've always heard.  On today's podcast, ET recalls a segment from a recent 1% Conference, where he told attendees to change the way they think about money. Did you know that there are 10 myths about money that are keeping people from being wealthy and prosperous? It's true. Today,  ET tears down a few of these myths and shows how holding onto these limiting beliefs about money is holding you back from living your best life.  The Secret to Success Topics: [04:04] - Trey’s Comedy Corner [12:00] - Fair or Foul [20:18] - Everybody Roll [35:40] - Collectiveness Society [43:09] - Bar Alert [53:00] - Get In Position [1:00:00] - No Either Or [1:06:00] - REBUILD Listener Perks: Make Real Estate Real Course Organifi is giving our listeners 20% off of their order just go to www.organifi.com/success.

Problem-solving is the process of finding solutions to difficult or complex issues. In today's podcast, the guys talk about two types of individuals—there's the one who wants to solve the problem when it arises, and then there's the one who avoids solving the problem but finds time to blame others, and vent to anyone who will listen. ET breaks down how to go from being the complainer to the solver through understanding and applying the principle of FACTS over FEELINGS.   The Secret to Success Topics: [05:00] - Trey’s Comedy Corner [09:00] - CJ’s Flu Game [22:00] - Fair or Foul [29:58] - You Don’t Want Help [40:00] - Flip The Switch [55:00] - Autocorrect [1:08:00] - Last Dance Finale [   Listener Perks: Make Real Estate Real Course Organifi is giving our listeners 20% off of their order just go to www.organifi.com/success.

As the Michael Jordan Documentary, The Last Dance, continues, the guys continue digging deeper into the Winner's Mentality of Michael Jordan. This week the guys each focus on a moment in the documentary that blew them away. Karl speaks on Mike's drive, Jemal is intrigued by Mike's fearlessness, never being afraid to fail and always ready to try. ET ties it all together at the close by focusing on how MJ's Vocabulary set him apart. Words are important.

227 - Load Management

227 - Load Management

2020-05-0701:25:371

You're not winning because you're not carrying your load correctly! Effective load management is the difference maker between success and failure in both business and private life. These statements set the tone for today's podcast. Many of you want to be successful, and a part of the 1%, but you're holding yourselves back by carrying a load that's not yours to carry or,  carrying what is yours, incorrectly. Some of that weight looks like the opinions of parents, siblings, and others who have everything to say about how and what you're doing but aren't doing any of the work.  The most critical step to take in effective load management is ignoring the comments and opinions of those whose opinions don't matter. If you're wondering whose opinions "don't matter," and why, here's a clue; if they aren't pulling alongside you, grinding it out with you day in and day out, their opinions don't matter. Period.  This week, ET breaks down the three things you're doing that are standing in the way of your success.  Effective Load management is the name of the game, and the guys break down what that looks like while offering great insights on how to identify your load limits and apply effective load management in your life and business immediately.  The Secret to Success Topics: [03:48] - Trey’s Comedy Corner [10:14] - Fair or Foul [19:30] - Load Management [30:25] - Doing Too Much [43:20] - I Don’t Care [1:05:45] - Ask ET Listener Perks: Make Real Estate Real Course Organifi is giving our listeners 20% off of their order just go to www.organifi.com/success.

Text ET at 313-251-1181 and follow us on IG @S2SPodcast Secrets 2 Success: You’re not winning because you don’t have load management. You will never be successful if you care TOO much about what others think. You have too much on your mind and it’s preventing you from executing. When you learn to do one thing well all the other things will come. Do what you can do and don’t worry about what you can’t do.

Last week the guys took a moment to watch the first installment of "The Last Dance," A documentary focusing on not just the final season but the length and breadth of Michael Jordan's professional basketball career. The guys agreed that although Jordan made it all look so easy and effortless,  the levels of adversity, personal trauma, and pain he endured WHILE killing the game was unbelievable. Life happens, and if you didn't know it before COVID-19 straight stopped the entire world in its tracks, you certainly know it now.  As the podcast continues, they transition from discussing MJ to discussing the importance of having and maintaining provisions. For those who don't know, provisions are things we stock up on in preparation for times like these, namely, canned goods and other non-perishable items. Essentially, provisions are things that will keep you alive. Like all of you, each of the guys has had a crisis period where they relied on their emotional, spiritual and physical "provisions" to get through the doubt, the pain, and REAL life-altering adversity each one faced. The provisions they stocked up on allowed them to emerge on the other side, better than when they went in. They'll share these stories and more on today's Secret to Success Podcast.

Who's your Mattie Moss Clark? Dr. Mattie Moss Clark was the mother and motivation behind the birth and success of the iconic Gospel Group, The Clark Sisters. ET had a chance to watch the biopic and was inspired by Dr. Mattie Moss Clark, who pushed her girls to greatness in an industry that's full of excellence that doesn't always rise to the top.  While studying Dr. Clark's moves and directions, he realized that to be successful at the levels most think they want to be, most people need a Dr. Mattie Moss Clark driving them toward their full potential. Can you push yourself to greatness? Or, do you get upset when other people push you?

Cause and effect. When you do something it has an effect on something else. The other side is when you don’t do something it still affects something. Last week CJ talked about the difficulties of not having the same routine that he’s had over the last few years. Because he hasn’t had the same routine it was affecting how he went about his day. Today he starts the conversation with somewhat of an epiphany and how although he’s not able to have his normal routine, he still has an opportunity to fix his gaps and increase his strengths.

Success is an incredible attraction, and, as everyone on the squad continues their elevation in both business and private life, more and more people want in on the circle.  The problem is, some but not all of these "new people" have brought with them three particularly nasty spirits. Complaining, manipulation, and taking. If you know anything about E, C, Karl, Mal & the Squad, then you already know, these are 3 Things that the squad doesn’t tolerate.  As ever, ETA's very own "Quincy Jones" AKA CJ, plays devil’s advocate when the conversation shifts to the topic of how and when to charge for your services. Today's show covers a myriad of relevant topics and the passion from the guys and their special in-studio guests will have you glued to your headphones!   Trust me; if you're in the process of building anything, a business, personal, and professional relationships, or anything else,  you'll need to hear what's about to go down today!

Everyone has challenges but there are some people who allow these challenges to hold them back. On today’s podcast ET talks about the difference between people who fight the challenges and the ones who let the challenges defeat them. CJ chimes in on how important it is to stop focusing on the challenge itself and work towards a solution. Where your focus goes your energy flows and today’s podcast will help you refocus.

I have just realised that most of us have been in a stagnant "Corona state of mind" for years. what I mean by this is we have probably experienced a traumatic experience that forced us to mentally quarantine and wait for things to change instead of adapting during that difficult time.

CJ I think it's important for you guys to talk about your accomplishments more. Ppl are constantly living in the struggle and forget what's possible, I don't think it's bragging at all. You guys whole purpose is giving ppl the opportunity to dream again.
