Juicers, today we are going to take a hard look at the areas of your life and business that have been affected by fear, and how you can find the courage to move forward. I have listened to the thought “this might not work” over and over, I’ve struggled with days were no deals closed, the effort far outweighed the results, and the expenses were more than the income. Some of you are living this life right now, and it’s crushing your spirit and killing your joy. When the last of your courage is spent and you want to toss in the towel, what can you do? Join me for this hard-hitting, honest conversation...I think you will find it helpful.

How do we find the courage to keep going when we want to give up?

This last week, I have been resting on courage. The word has come up in several conversations and emails. The question that has been on my mind is this: How do we find the courage to keep going when we want to give up? Seth Godin wrote “At some level, "this might not work" is at the heart of all important projects, of everything new and worth doing. And it can paralyze us into inaction, into watering down our art and into failing to ship.” So, how do we find the courage to overcome this? We borrow it.

Borrowing Courage

If fear is paralyzing you from moving forward, I want to offer a couple of solutions. The first is the idea of borrowing courage. There have been so many moments when I did not think being an agent was going to work out. I was stressed, angry, desperate, you name it...and yet, in a moment of grace, there has always been someone to pull me aside to encourage me and tell me I had what it takes, to let me borrow some of their courage until I could find my own. I eventually did, and now it is available if you need it. If you are listening to this episode, and you need to borrow courage, please reach out to me!

Focus on the vision, not your needs

I have talked about the concept this on previous episodes, but I feel this is a great time to mention it again. If you are living according to your needs, you will always be stressed and always scrambling to meet those needs. That is no way to live. I encourage you to live according to a vision. For me, I have to remember, especially on “bad realtor days,” that my clients or deals are not my sources of provision. My faith reminds me to look to God, the true source of my provision. I never want to forget how I am blessed and taken care of, and that is, in part, the vision I live my life by.

Do you have the courage to ask for help?

Simon Sinek says “To overcome our challenges, all that is required is the courage to ask for help.” I know that for many agents, this is the hardest thing to do. We are expected to know everything, especially if you have been an agent for more than a few years. This last year, I have made a habit of asking questions, and it has been an empowering experience! I have been a real estate agent for seventeen years, and there are still situations that arise that I am not sure how to handle. The idea of “fake it till you make it” is terrible advice...all it really takes is the courage to ask for help.

Aug 20, 2018

After an amazing response to the last two episodes where I talked about overcoming fear, It’s time to dive deep and learn exactly how you can overcome the fear of success. For me, this process means renewing my mind and surrounding myself with people who, in faith, command fear to leave and claim the abundance that is made available to us! On this episode, I share some of my own story and what I do when fear tries to take over. I hope you find this one encouraging and empowering!

Fear is the reason you are not breaking through

Right now, many of you are struggling. You wrestle and grind and hustle and plan, but cannot seem to break through into something new, something abundant. Frustration sets in, doubt is the most familiar voice you know, anxiety your most loyal companion. Fear has taken hold of your heart an won’t let go. If you have the energy, maybe you fight back...if not, you coexist with this fear, and hope and pray to see more abundance and blessing in your life...

If I could sit inside your head for a day

When I was a young agent, there wasn’t much that scared me. When the recession hit in 2008, I experienced fear. Was the national as a whole in a panic, sure. But the real issue was taking place in my own head and heart. If i could sit inside your head for a day, I think I would see many of the same lies and thoughts that I had in that season. Fear is a liar, and too often, those lies are tailored to fit you perfectly. What can we do? How can we overcome fear and claim the abundant life that has been given to us? How do we live in blessing and abundance? It starts with renewing our minds.

Renewing your mind

In the Bible, there are 365 verses that tell us to not be afraid (If you want the list, let me know, I will send it to you). When fear starts to control our emotions, we must learn to command that fear to leave, through the authority given to us in Jesus Christ. When you look in a mirror, you can trust that the mirror is showing an accurate reflection of what you look like, right? With the same confidence and faith, you can trust that God’s peace is available to you, that he is working on your behalf. Renewing your mind means meditating on truth. Surround yourself with people who practice this. For me, there are a couple of practical things I do to renew my mind. The first thing, I listen to the teaching from a Christian minister from Colorado by the name of Andrew Wommack. He has several platforms that he teaches from, including a podcast and TV spots. His website is an amazing resource for faith-building, fear-crushing encouragement, and biblical teaching. The second thing I do is listen to Christian music. This helps me keep my mind focused on the right things, and launches me into an abundance mindset. “No Longer Slaves” by Bethel Music is a powerful anthem of truth, and one of my favorites. “Fear is a liar” by Zach Williams is another great song to help you renew your mind.

The Neil Mathweg coaching program

I am very excited to announce that my new coaching program is now accepting new students! I am offering a small group format (2-33 agents, $299 a month/pp), as we as 1-1 coaching ($595/month). I am also getting ready to launch a new Bootcamp-style training that will consist of live training, followed by Q&A sessions. This program will help you get a clear plan in place, then stick to that plan. I will be announcing more details in future episodes, but if you have immediate questions about the program, it’s purpose, format or cost, just send me a message!

Juicers, It is time to crush fear. It’s time to pursue the success you talk about, but are afraid to actually achieve. It’s time to recognize your enemy, call him out, then move past all of the doubt and start living the full life you were designed for. You can no longer afford to put your dreams and goals on hold. The world needs your creativity, leadership, business ideas and influence now more than ever. Fear is the only thing holding you back...

The fear of success

Many of you agents are saying “we want to crush it” or “I’m ready to take my business to the next level,” but in reality, you are afraid of what would happen if you actually reached that level of success. Maybe you worked a deal, but it took all of your attention and time, and you are afraid if you have more deals, you won’t be able to handle it all. You might be thinking “even if I got that deal, I wouldn’t know what to say…” You see, fear has an excuse for everything. It will tell you that you are not smart enough, organized enough, skilled enough, influential enough, or worthy of the success you are pursuing. This stops today. Today, we collectively declare that the enemy has no power over our success, that fear is a liar!

Get Angry!

You have an enemy that does not want you to succeed! That enemy only has power as long as you let fear run your life. That enemy wants to steal, kill and destroy everything that you are working on, and he uses fear to do it! To overcome that, it requires to get angry at the enemy (not at each other, mind you), call him out and strip him of his power! If that sounds like I’m preaching, good! You know best where fear has been given free reign in your life or business. Maybe it’s hiring a coach, or hitting a sales goal. As you eliminate fear, your confidence grows, and your way of thinking starts to shift.

I delayed a dream for nine months because I was afraid

When I started the I Love Madison show, I had a goal of connecting trailing spouses, business leaders and members of the community. For nine months, I planned an I Love Madison meetup to help accomplish that goal. Did it actually take nine months to plan? No. It took 15 minutes, and one Instagram message, but I was afraid it wouldn't be perfect. After stressing over all the details, I finally hosted the event, and it was awesome! All of the people who attended said the format (no agenda) was exactly what they needed. I met some local influencers and connectors, a team member of mine was blessed with some new business for his media company, and 25 or so members of the Madison community connected. Imagine the blessings that would have been missed if I was still operating in fear. When you eliminate fear, often those around you are blessed as a result. If you don’t eliminate fear, you might be indirectly causing those closest to you to suffer.

Coaching Bootcamp

Fear is a liar. Got it? Let’s switch gears for a moment…

I have been building a program designed for real estate agents who want to learn and launch. Unlike the roundbox coaching program that I have been using, this new coaching program will be a 6-week boot camp-style program designed to teach you, encourage and launch you! I will be launching this program in September and will be providing more information in the coming weeks. The format will be live online classes, with one hour of instruction, followed by one hour of Q&A. I will also be offering 1-1 coaching and group coaching sessions. Stay tuned, I will provide you with more details soon!

It is a little bit crazy when I think about the fact that I have been recording for the OJ podcast for nearly three years! Episode 156 will officially be the three-year mark, but I wanted to use this episode (150) to share a few of the life lessons that I have learned recently! I have been learning some amazing things about mindset, so I hope you will find these things as inspirational and life-changing as I have! Thanks for listening, you can expect more ear-guzzling awesomeness in the future!

64 Gifts

Recently, my wife and I attended the Escape Adulthood Summit, hosted by Jason Kotecki from Escape Adulthood. Jason’s mission is to annihilate Adultitis and help people create better lives and businesses. During the summit, Jason brought up the idea of the Crayola box crayon box that had 64 different colors (yes, the one with the crayon sharpener!). If you had that box as a kid, you were considered super cool! Instead of crayons, Jason asked each person in attendance to write down 64 gifts or talents that we had. The skills could be simple, usually small talents we take for granted. After writing down a list of 64 of my talents or skills, I have to say I felt pretty good! This was a powerful reminder to me, and I think it could be for you as well! I wanna know, what 64 things are you good at?

You can’t fill a moving cup!

You have heard the phrase “I need to fill my cup.” Many of you realize that you are all poured out, and you need to recharge, but you don’t slow down long enough to let that happen. If you need to fill your cup, make sure you are finding the time to rest. After all, you can’t fill a moving cup!

I’m telling for a friend

I think people need to share more inspiring stories of kindness, but the problem is, it’s hard to do something kind for another person, then tell the story. It feels like bragging, right? Sure. That doesn’t change the fact that we need to spread more kindness. You know the phrase “I’m asking for a friend,” usually brought up when something is embarrassing? What if we started “telling for a friend” when someone does something kind? Make somebody’s day by being kind to them, or inspire new acts of kindness by “telling for a friend.”

Your 99-year old self wrote you a letter

Have you ever written yourself a letter? I recently participated in an exercise where I wrote to myself from the perspective of my 99-year old self! What would that guy say? What would he regret not doing? For me, the 99-year old talked about consistency with my current projects and encouraged me to stay the course. He’s a wise guy! I am learning to heed his advice! If you want the same experience, write me a letter (to yourself), and mail it to me, and after six months, I will print it out and send it to you!

Fear is a liar

Here is a simple truth: Fear is a liar. I used to struggle with anxiety and fear. It riddled my life to the point where I was taking medication to try and fix it, to no avail. I did not see a change in my anxiety until a friend taught me to take authority of that fear, and command it to leave! Fear comes from the enemy, but I have the authority, as do you, to rise above that fear and realize it is just a clever lie. What fears are riddling your life and stealing your joy? You don’t have to settle...I didn’t, and my life is absolutely better as a result! If you want to hear more of my story, I would love to share, and inspire you on towards a life without fear!
