Gina teaches the mechanics of the mind to help coaches and business leaders get better results faster. In today’s show, Gina gives us some interesting insights into different mechanistic mind models.  First, she walks us through her “Process of Change”.  A willingness to change is the first step in this evolution.

But, yet, most of us throw in the towel midway and slide into a life of mediocrity. This segment of the show will surely rejuvenate and inspire you all over again.

In today's episode of The Greatness Machine, Darius chats with Jay Wilkinson, entrepreneur, author, speaker, angel investor, CEO of Firespring, and self-proclaimed "geek with social skills" about the rapidly shifting world of business. Hailing from Nebraska, the "middle of everywhere," Jay realized at a young age that he simply wasn't suited to taking instructions from others and became an entrepreneur, starting eight businesses by the time he left college - most of which failed.

What is a recession, and are we in one now? Today I’m flying solo to talk about the US economy, its current state, and what to expect during the second half of the year.  A recession is generally characterized by negative gross domestic product (GDP), rising unemployment, falling retail prices, and contracting measures of income and manufacturing lasting months or years. Recessions are often classified as two consecutive quarters of plummeting GDP growth, which the US economy is currently experiencing.  GDP fell at an annual rate of 0.9% in the second quarter this year, following the last quarter’s decline of 1.6%.  But before we talk about these figures, let’s take a step back and look at the four to five consecutive quarters with the most significant revenue growth in the last 15 years.  US real GDP rose at an annual rate of 6.9% in the fourth quarter of 2021, following a 2.3% growth in the third quarter, a 6.7% pace in the second quarter, and a 6.3% increase during the first quarter of the same year.  Despite the two recent negative quarters, we need to look at the numbers and what they represent. Moreover, a negative GDP growth rate does not necessarily connote that the economy is entering a recession. In this episode, you will learn about the US economy, GDP, recession, and why running a country is similar to running a business.  Topics include: The real GDP growth in the US for the first two quarters of 2022. The definition of recession How economists determine whether the economy is in a recession Why we need to look at the data and consider the previous quarters Why a negative GDP does not indicate a recession And other topics...

You are right in saying that dreams allow us to see the future with optimism and see the impossible become possible. This can inspire and motivate us to achieve our goals.
