What if there was no right way to achieve your goals and the only thing preventing you from reaching unparalleled success was something you could move beyond with a nudge in the right direction? I’ve recently come to the realization that I have not been moving forward towards my version of success as quickly as I would like because the fear of my mom dying or getting injured when I was not around was overwhelming my ability to take action. Now that I have made my fear conscious, it does not have the same power over my actions. That is not to say I am 100% moving forward yet, rather I am developing a plan to minimize the negatives, like injury, that can happen while I am away.
My guest today has moved from a life of fear to a life filled with examples of how he built successful careers and businesses after pushing through them. Not only is Dr. Joe a sought after speaker in the law enforcement and business communities he also is a bestselling author of a book about the Russia Mafia. That book was written after he spent a year working with the Russia Police in their organized crime department and he became a world authority on the topic. I don’t know about you but that job alone would bring my fear meter off the charts!
