The Foundation

Aaron talks about how authenticity is the foundation of what they are building at Iron Sharpens Iron. Aaron says it is important to be vulnerable and transparent, because it allows you to overcome the difficulties in our lives. He also says getting up in front of people and being transparent is encouraging and inspiring to them. This can build a cycle of transparency and authenticity that benefits everyone involved.

“The more you are transparent with people, it gives them permission to be transparent with you, and now we have an authentic conversation.” -Aaron Walker

 

Personal Bias

Aaron says by telling the truth, people can spare others of the challenges that they have faced. People also have a tough time seeing their own flaws, and having others being honest with you and your flaws can lead to great changes. He uses the duct tape activity as an example. One person sits in the middle with duct tape on their mouth so they cannot speak, while the group around them gives their honest opinion on things they can improve. The more people that share the same view on someone can change how they view themselves and their flaws, and this ultimately helps people work on their flaws.

“The more people share in those groups and the more they are honest with the people that are participating, the more it helps them.” -Aaron Walker

 

The Reasons People Hide

Aaron talks about the reasons that people are not transparent. He says the main reason is because of trust. If people are not sure if they can trust you, they usually won’t be fully transparent. Aaron stresses how important it is to be a trustworthy person, and to be confidential when someone tells you their story. Aaron also says there has to be a good time and place to be vulnerable. This is not small talk, this can’t be something that gets brought up at the dinner table.

“I highly recommend that you don't form a new relationship and air all of your dirty laundry immediately, people have to earn the respect to share at this intimate level we are referring to.” -Aaron Walker

Step by Step

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 21, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Up next you can hear Aaron Walker for a solo show where he discusses the benefits of a healthy mind and body.

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode HERE and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

VFTTpodcast

Healthy Mind and Body

Aaron starts off by speaking about how he was born a long term thinker. Long term thinking allows you to make educated decisions that may impact your future. This concept is prevalent in a book called “The Daniel Plan.”  Aaron asks and answers one of the questions asked in the book. Do you view food as fuel, comfort, or medicine?

I’ve never looked at food as medicine in my entire life, but I’m kind of viewing it that way now and I am personally seeing the benefits of it.” -Aaron Walker

 

How Much is too Much?

Aaron gives some background info on his mindset regarding health. Aaron has never been a guy to work out every single day or watch every bite he takes, but he thinks being in great shape is important. This is obtainable without a crazy new diet or strenuous workout routine. These things may ultimately hurt more than they help. Aaron says a balanced life is important, and find someone to hold you accountable. Your goals are not as far off as you might think.

“I want to encourage you to not be that guy that just goes nuts, gets rid of everything and exercises 7 days a week. You’ll burn out, you won’t hold that pace.” - Aaron Walker

I Can Afford It

Aaron talks about how he and his wife decided to sell their house and buy a smaller house. This has helped him realize what was important to him. For instance, family is something that means the world to Aaron. Once you are able to sit down and think about this, make sure to always take your family into consideration.

 

What Is Getting In Your Way?

Aaron asks us to evaluate what is getting in the way of our lives and what is most important to us. He would like us to take some time and really dive deep into these underlying issues. Is there something that is getting in between you and your family?

“Always air on the side of your family. Businesses don’t have feelings but family does.” - Aaron Walker

Expert Interview with Bob Burg

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 16, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Up next you can hear Aaron Walker sit down with Bob Burg.

Bob Burg is a sought out speaker for company leadership and sale conferences. Bob talks with broadcast personalities and a former President. Bob has been named by the American management association as one of the top 30 most influential thought leaders in business.

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode HERE and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

VFTTpodcast

Why another book on leadership?

Bob says that he loves leadership and there is still so much to be learned. Bob talks about influence and how leadership is intertwined with it. The book shares more of a story rather than a how-to book.

Bob believes leadership is changing and there can be an endless amount of books on the topic.

 

What is a Go-Giver?

Someone understands that they are given an enormous responsibility to bring value to those they lead. Bob describes to move from the “I” to the “other focus” and put the interest of others before their own.

“When we think of traditional leadership we sometimes think of the stereotype that the leader is all about themselves. I do feel that this is changing though.” Bob Burg

With a go-giver leader, they willingly give up their self-interest and understands the more value they bring around them, the more it will benefit the organization.

It takes vision and holding on to that vision to be a successful leader. Doing this helps create unity with the community and see the goal.

 

Keys to Leadership

  1. Hold your vision
  2. Getting others to see your vision so they too can become leaders
  3.   Everybody Matters
  4.     Having people feel good about their work
  5.    Stand for something
  6.    Who you are is one of the most important aspects of being a leader
  7.    “When someone has a high character we trust them because they stand for something” Bob Burg
  8.    Practice giving leadership
  9.    Handing over leadership to others
  10.    Coach those that are in a leadership position
  11.     Great leadership can trickle down

 

Hiring Traits

Bob says he would look for someone that has a history of the “other”. Having the person focused on the team and not the individual self. If you have that as a starting base, then you can look to get to the level 5 leader.

 

“The level 5 leader will take the blame and assign the credit.” Bob Burg

 

The level 5 leader will be the leader that is there for you and will run through a wall for you if they have to.

 

Top 3 Pieces of Advice

  1. Understand people do things for their reasons, not our reasons
  2. A great leader always asks questions: How do my goals align with their goals?
  3. Understand earning trust will be your most valuable asset
  4. Understand the prevalence of technology is vast, but it is always about the people

Robin hurt my Feelings- Adult Emergency

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 14, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Up next you can hear Aaron Walker’s Adult Emergency: He needs help because Robyn hurt his feelings!

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode HERE and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

 

VFTTpodcast

The Story

If you’ve been married for some time, are you laughing like you used to? Is the same sense of intimacy there?  Does your heart skip a beat when your wife walks in the door because you are so excited to see her? If not, why not?  What’s going on?

“I know for me whenever there are relational issues in my marriage I don’t have to look much further then myself to find a culprit. It’s not about who is to blame, but I need to own when I screw up.  My worst sin is getting so engrossed in my work I spend all my energy at work and leave little for my family when I get home.” - Danny Bauer



Adult Emergency

Aaron talks about a time when Robin hurt his feelings by telling him that they don’t laugh like they used too.  When Aaron and Robin have disagreements, they don’t holler and yell or scream and fight, they sit down and talk through it.  Aaron wanted to defend himself but realized what Robin said was the truth.

“We don’t laugh anymore because I’m a knucklehead, because I get so focused on what I am doing and I’m so intense about what I’m doing and I get laser focused.  I forget to laugh sometimes.” - Aaron Walker

 

The Challenge

Aaron admits that he is guilty of forgetting to laugh sometimes.  He forgets to relax and have fun and let his guard down because he is so busy trying to make money and build the community and create his best life.  Aaron wants to challenge and encourage you today to go home, get your spouse, go out, have fun and laugh. It’s worth it.

“But what is the point in all that if we forget to laugh?” - Aaron Walker

 

Summary

Sometimes that’s all we need to wake the heck up!

“It was a small point in the story, but I highly recommend that you put artifacts around your house that illustrate and symbolize your ideal relationship and life to the fullest.  We need reminders of our why.” - Danny Bauer

At VFTT we help men live a life of success and significance.  If your priorities are out of whack or if you’re not laughing like you used to with your wife, we can help.

If you could use some help getting your priorities in order, I want to welcome you to Iron Sharpens Iron mastermind. You can read all about it and fill out an application at viewfromthetop.com

How to Accomplish your Three Year Vision

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 9, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Today I’m joined live with Aaron Walker and we’re going to talk about our live event and the come as be party we’re going to throw ...

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode HERE and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

The Story

In The Success Principles, Jack Canfield talks about attending a Come as You’ll be Party in 1986.  Guests were encouraged to come with book covers, awards, clothes, and pictures that showed them as they would be living 5 years in advance.  At this event, Jack showed the cover of his New York Times bestselling book - that was nothing but a dream at that point.

In 1993 the first Chicken Soup for the Soul was released and Jack went on to write over 80 books.  More than 500 million Chicken Soup books have been sold—and the original has been translated into 40 languages.  Jack says that party flooded their minds with powerful images of already having achieved their aspirations.

Seneca says If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.

Habakkuk 2:2 from the Old Testament says: Write the vision down so that those who read it will run.

These quotes speak to how powerful vision is in our lives.



Come As You Will Be Live Event?

Aaron talks about having a vision and making it come to be.  You have to believe it in your mind first and then it will happen.  The theme caused members to talk in the future and envision where they would be.  

“At the time I stood up and shared my future I hadn’t even written my book and said I would have 10 mastermind groups.  It was scary. Now my book is written and we are getting ready to launch our 15th mastermind group and I am 50% greater than where I thought I would be and I am a year ahead of schedule.” - Aaron Walker

 

Mindset Change

You must work your way to it becoming real and not just perceived.  Aaron talks about what has to happen today. You must focus on the things that matter and plan. The 12 Week Year has changed the way we do things.  In Iron Sharpens Iron we have daily and weekly accountability partners that keeps us going.

“In Iron Sharpens Iron we focus on the task not the goal.” - Aaron Walker

I'm in Financial Trouble and See No Way Out

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 4, 2019 8:00:00 AM

In today’s show Aaron Walker discusses financial trouble and what he did and what you can do too in order to get out of it.

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode HERE and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

 

VFTTpodcast

 

Stress and Financial Trouble

Aaron shares a story about a father who comes home late from work and he apologizes for being late.  He’s not giving attention to his kids or his wife due to the amount of work he needs to do. He is thinking this because of the bills he needs to pay and thinking that if he works harder he can get out of this vicious cycle.

“I was sitting at our kitchen table paying our bills, we didn’t have any children yet and literally started crying.  Robin asked what was wrong and I told her we can’t pay our bills, we don’t have enough money to pay our bills.” - Aaron Walker

 

What Do You Do?

When your business is doing well and making money, you start to think that you can handle everything until the business slows down and you can’t.  Aaron and his wife took all of their credit cards that they were using and put them in an envelope, sealed it and took it to the bank and they have been there for over 30 years unopened.  Best decision the Walker’s ever made.

“You always default back to the path of least resistance.” - Aaron Walker

 

Over-Extended, Lack of Priorities

Sometimes we find ourselves over-extended and our priorities are all messed up.  According to Big A this leads to a vicious cycle of catching up and deciding to pay this or that.  In his younger years there were times when Big A put money in front of his family and that caused incredible stress on him.   That’s reactive living. That’s living outside of your means. Big A got rid of his credit cards, started living within his means, delayed gratification, and began to be proactive with his finances.   Since then, he’s been able to be much more present and connected with his family. In short, he has his priorities in order.

“It will allow you to be more present with your family at home.  You won’t feel the need to do one more email, one more client, I just have to close this deal so I can make that payment.  Be proactive not reactive. Build some boundaries today and take your life to the next level.” - Aaron Walker
