    Do you ask for what you want? Or, do you simply take what you’re offered?

    Spot other people’s negotiation (DEAL) styles; and
    Make confident decisions and embrace strategic risk taking.
  • Dealing With the Ups and Downs of Life and Business Recorded: Mar 27 2019 52 mins
    Katie Wood
    In this webinar, you will learn 6 stages of the marathon of life, the ups and downs and how they relate to life and building a business.

    Life is a roller coaster and we can't control the things that happen to us, but we are in control of the how we RESPOND. The word "responsibility" means our ability to respond to life.

    "Marathon of life" and keeping ONE foot in front of the other (repeat theme)
    What you BELIEVE SHAPES everything about your LIFE.
    With our business- I believe that it ISN’T OUR circumstances that make us UNHAPPY (we all go through hard things).
    It’s our ATTITUDE in our circumstances that really make us unhappy. Attitude is a LITTLE THING- that makes a BIG difference.

    "You are in charge of your own race"
    MILE 1- Expectations (they lead to disappointments- When CHANGING YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES isn’t possible - Change your PERCEPTION/BELIEF about your circumstances. )
    MILE 5- Embrace your blisters (Shift from MOTIVATION to DEDICATION- an attitude of whatever it takes)
    MILE 10- Let it go. (Get rid of ANYTHING that will HOLD YOU BACK. What you resist, persists.)
    MILE 16- Conquer your heartbreak hill (we all hit a wall- it's not here to stop you, but PUSH you further than you would naturally push yourself- this is where you build strength)
    MILE 20- No me without YOU (surrounding yourself with the right people - they will make you bitter or better, chose wisely)
    MILE 26 - (finish line) - never really a finish line- it's about finding the JOY in the journey

    WHEN YOU CONNECT the dots looking back at the marathon- everything was here to help you grow- same goes for life.

    Katie Wood is a thought leader, entrepreneur, and creator of The Jourse, a 5-week online program that helps women increase their self-awareness and kickstart their journey to a more authentic, meaningful life.
