“Surviving your success is often times equally, if not harder, than creating it in the first place.”
As business leaders we understand that it can be lonely at the top, and after so long it’s easy to lose the motivation and drive that got us the success that we’ve achieved. It’s as if we stall out and we lose our edge. Although we know that we can’t keep going without a change taking place we aren’t sure how to come alive again once we’ve reached that lonely place, where the world tells us that we’re on top but we feel like we’ve lost our drive.
On this week’s edition of the Grow My Revenue podcast, I speak with Kelsey Ramsden. Kelsey has been named Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneur two years running and has been recognized globally for building multiple, multi-million dollar businesses both offline and online. She’s also an author and an international speaker.
Kelsey understands that even the best and most successful leaders can stall and so we’re going to talk specifically about the biggest challenges that people face when they feel like they’ve stalled. We also talk about the mindset that helps you get past that, some of the ways that people cope with that stalling and specific approaches you can take to keep you and your team energized going forward. “We start to question our own abilities and our ability to adapt and transform and create.” she says, “which is what we did in the beginning to become successful.”
I know you’re going to love this discussion, and you’re going to learn a ton from Kelsey Ramsden on this edition of Grow My Revenue!
Listen to this episode and discover:
- How our heightened level of success becomes our baseline of mediocre for ourselves.
- Why you should put yourself in places where you’re not an expert.
- What dulls our edge as a business person.
- Why it’s important to remind yourself what it’s like to be in pursuit again.
- And so much more…
Kelsey helps individuals futureproof themselves and their businesses, break the status quo to re-invent for the next level of accomplishment, success. She understands that fundamentally, every successful person is a beginner at every stage because only those who continue to strive are those who survive both for themselves and in business.
In this episode, Kelsey talks about:
- Why you have to go back to the beginning of not knowing everything.
- The importance of getting out of your comfort zone, where you don’t already have mastery, and walking away with an open mind.
- Why you need to stock your “mental shelves” in a specific and strategic way.
- How everyone has 2 languages – and they aren’t what you might think.
- Why you must allow your mind some play space – “let it go for a run”, she says.
“I believe that play is the new PHD, that’s the next level of education…the next degree is learning how to let you mind wander,” Kelsey says. “If you do it prescriptively, you can stock those mental shelves so strategically that everything that you pull off it is gonna have a new recipe, something new and interesting.”
