Should you stay safe and comfortable in your life – especially since everything is working great? Or is it better to seize the adventure, mixing things up and initiating the changes you’ve been yearning to experience?

In this episode, Mordant & McFall poke, prod, & preach about what it means to take chances and live your life to the fullest. Moving beyond the relative safety of your couch, step away from the television or book spouting other people’s creations and create something awesome of your own. You only have time to lose and you’re letting that slip through your fingers already anyway. Why not throw your life into a little turmoil and, quite possibly, become the star of your own story instead of watching/reading about the heroes in someone else’s?

Working to excel in this life, do you do your due diligence? Are you willing to put in the effort required now in order to make sure your business, goal, and/or relationship smoothly sails forward later? If you are wanting things to grow/expand/explode and in a good way in your life, you might find you are going to have to put in some sweat equity early on to set things up to go that way. And, that’s what this episode is about: doing your due diligence, those things you need to do, to excel in life.
Mordant discovers that by putting a day’s worth of effort into setting up several Excel spreadsheets, he can streamline calculations that would normally take him hours on his own.

There’s nothing “bad” really. You just need to do some Radio Edits to clean things up a little and smooth out the rough edges.
Mordant visits Scott & Dawn Neisler and the AM 1450 WGNC studio in Shelby, North Carolina, laughing and chatting about what Scott needed to edit in his life when he went from working the textiles biz to becoming a radio-station entrepreneur. Though not in the same studio as the rest, McFall makes sure to throw in enough of his own worthy wisdom and stories to help polish an already shiny episode. [Read more…]

Since Mordant is traveling from Minnesota to North Carolina, we’re revisiting SF #118 this week. We sincerely hope you enjoy it.
Is fear of success a real thing? If so, why are people so afraid of this beneficial thing they keep saying that want out of life? So many people unknowingly sabotage themselves without realizing it and then wonder why they’re not succeeding.
Fear of Success means being afraid of the very thing you desire. Giving into that fear will keep you safely ensconced in that snuggly-safe bed you are making for yourself by not taking the steps necessary to live a bigger, badder, better, more life. Moving beyond this self-imposed mediocrity means giving up what you’re comfortable with. It means leaving your comfort zone and taking enough of a leap of faith to take a closer look at what you need to change in order to be successful.
Change happens! You can either dig in your heels, hoping against hope that things will stay the same stale-sweet way they’ve always been – or you can get into the flow of things, growing and leveling up your life as you go. The choice, as always, is yours.
This episode, Mordant & McFall entertain and edify you as they share what it means to “embrace The Rhythm of Change” via a variety of anecdotes, shifting points of view, and even comedic voices. Nothing is safe, not even your favorite holidays. Listen in as McFall gleefully rants about birthdays and Halloween while Mordant waxes funly philosophical in the face of such holiday-hating hi-jinx.
