The James Swanwick Show

Welcome to another episode of Friday Q&A, where you ask the questions and I give you my honest feedback and opinion.  And a big thanks to everyone who has written in over the past month, I appreciate it! Also if you have not written in yet, I encourage you to do so. I would love to give you some insight and a different perspective on the areas you might be struggling with.  A few of today’s questions are; how and where to connect with better quality women without going to bars, how to have deep and meaningful conversations with people after a short amount of time, and how to make friends later in life rather than in your 20’s?

What are you putting off that can get done today? Do you save your hardest and most important task until the end of the day?  Well, today I want to talk to you about “kissing the frog.” It’s a term that popular self-help author and speaker, Brian Tracy coined a while back. The theory behind it is, that when you wake up in the morning you do your hardest and most important tasks first. The thing you’re least looking forward to. By doing this, you are essentially “kissing the frog.”  And by getting that one task out of the way, you’re able to progress through the rest of your day with relative ease. Listen in, and lean how to kiss the frog! Let me know what you think on twitter and instagram @jamesswanwick

Do you welcome change with open arms? Or do you fight change as often as possible? Well, Today I’m talking about why change is good and why you should embrace it. While we are often resistant to change, we don’t realize that life itself is always changing. Nothing is constant really…Change is inevitable, so you might as well embrace it. Also, as we change and grow, we gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world and how we see others. Moreover we are forced to step out side of our comfort zone, and that is usually where all the magic happens. So listen in, and ask yourself “what are some areas in my life that could benefit from change?” Let me know what you think on instagram and twitter @jamesswanwick www.jamesswanwick.com

Are you currently looking for a mentor? Have you ever experienced the power of having a mentor in your corner? Well, if you’ve been listening to the show, you know that I’m a huge proponent of a mentorship. The mistakes we make in our everyday lives can set us back years and even decades, from where we want to be. Unless you know the perfect formula to go through life, you can repeat the vicious cycle of making the same mistakes over and over again. This is why it’s so important to invest in coaches and mentors. You want to tap into minds of people who have been there, made the mistakes, and can show you the path to success and happiness.

Are you frequently skipping your workouts? Well, to be honest I’ve been a little bit slack with my exercise regimen lately. The excuse I’m giving is that I’ve been moving into a new apartment and have been very busy at the moment. If you remember I left to Australia back in November, and because of that I suspended my gym membership. And I’ve only just now renewed my gym membership, here in February. It’s really amazing how much your fitness and exercise practice can change when you get out of the “normal routine.” When you break the habit it’s very easy to stray further and further. Listen in as I explain how I got back on track, and how you can too. Let me know what you think on twitter and instagram @jamesswanwick   www.jamesswanwick.com

Do you consider yourself a connector? Today we are talking all about how to grow your network through introductions. I like to think I’m pretty good at this, as I’m introducing people all the time…And in return they introduce me to interesting people and help grow my business as well. To teach you how to introduce people and how to grow your network, I’ve brought in a former guest and one of the most connected people I know, John Corcoran. John has worked in Hollywood, written speeches for President Bill Clinton and lost his job when Arnold Schwarzenegger became the Governator. Even though he's lived in California most of his life, he is the world's worst surfer, although he does speak Valley Girl fluently. His day job is working with small business owners and entrepreneurs as a lawyer and business advisor. Enjoy the show! Let me know what you think on twitter and instagram @jamesswanwick
