"Make A Promise Day" — May 4th

May The Fourth Be With You!

Listen to My “Make A Promise” Interview with Laurie Gerber on Handel Group Radio

My interview is now available.  Click on this link (also see link below).  My segment lasts less than 15 minutes I guess.  Laurie Gerber does a great job.  She’s a big fan of the power of making promises.  She refers to it as “a tool everyone has to combat fear and get into action.”  She’s so right!  Laurie also said making promises is her favorite topic and she was kind enough to say that I am “always inspiring” in talking about this topic.  Laurie talked on air about one promise she made to get into action and get past her fears.  She promised that she would take at least one risk every day, do something that took her outside her comfort zone.  She made that a promise and it has helped her succeed in business as a life coach and radio host.  Here’s to your promise Laurie!

During my segment (which begins at about the halfway point in the hour-long show) we covered a wide range of topics including:

  • Make A Promise Day on May 4th.  Laurie gets a big kick out of “May The Fourth Be With You!”
  • The Power of Making a Promise generally
  • The promise I made to my mother on her deathbed
  • My book HabitForce! (available on www.ThePodiumPro.com) and the habits of SUCCESS and FAILURE.  We talked about the FAILURE Trap of “Finger Pointing” (the F in FAILURE) and the need to Recognize, Reject & Replace it with “Shoulder Responsibility” (the first S in SUCCESS).
  • My “What’s Your Promise?” interview with John Assaraf (http://youtu.be/LYdemF5H1KA) in which he discusses the promise he made to God on the birth of his first (and second) son.  Also see my blog post for more details (http://wp.me/pSLX3-7w)
  • The idea of a new “birthday” tradition or ritual to make a promise to take care of newborn children.
  • My new ebook A Promise A Day (available on www.ThePodiumPro.com) and one promise from the ebook that I recommend for everybody:  “I Promise … to be the change I want to see in the world.”

All in all, a very good interview.  Fast-paced, entertaining.  Many thanks to Laurie for inviting me back on her show to talk about the power of making promises.  Always a delight to speak with Laurie Gerber and listen to the Handel Group Radio Show.
