In this episode Joel and Antonia talk about the difference between modesty and humility while giving some great ideas for giving yourself permission to be awesome.

In this podcast on permission to be awesome you’ll find:

  • Oftentimes we think that we wasted our time during our younger years especially if we didn’t get any return on investment.
  • There are many ways for people to identify themselves, perhaps in a certain time we graduate, the times we spent before and many more.
  • Make a list of the things that you experienced in order to get what you really want.
  • Remember that you wouldn’t be where you are today without things you experienced in your past.
  • The skills you’ve learned and things you did helped you to arrive where you are now.
  • We tend to forget to be grateful for the things in our lives that has gotten us to the places we’re at. The more grateful you are, the more you accomplish and achieve.
  • People who have been raised in a survival context (example – people who had terrible upbringing and faced a lot of tragedy in life) have the ability to navigate the world in a very interesting way.
  • Humility VS Modesty. Humility is all about where you stand in relationship to everybody else. Modesty is about accepting your limitations and at the same time, acknowledging your skills.
  • People are more inclined to trust you as a person when you provide an accurate assessment of where you stand.
  • Give yourself permission to be awesome. When you accept how much power you have and all the amazing things that made you who you are now, it takes you to a new level in making a huge difference in the world.

    Listening to this podcast right now, and I had to pause to chime in with a similar story to Joel’s. I totally relate to the story of reconceptualizing a job you dislike in order to maximize what you get out of it until you can move on. My first career path as a middle school band and music teacher, and I realized pretty early on that although I loved studying music and getting a degree in teaching, I was miserable in the classroom. I had a one-year contract I refused to break, but I got through the rest of the year by reconceptualizing the experience as “band director camp”. Something about thinking of it as a camp soothed me in knowing that it was temporary, but it also helped me to think of the experience as a learning one, and that I could take that knowledge with me as a forged a new path. Joel’s “CEO Training” story reminded me SO much of that!

      Thanks for your comment Tracey! I think we’ve all been in that situation where we have to find a way to tolerate a job until something better comes along. I hope you have found the “something better.”
