Thanks to you, we hit an amazing milestone last month. Below I share all of the highlights and lessons learned in October 2014.

iTunes New and Noteworthy Ranking

This is an awesome milestone and blessing to our mission here. Because of the increased visibility of the show, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in new listeners. The audience is growing and the message is spreading far and wide!

If you haven’t yet, you can help the podcast expand and reach more people by leaving a quick rating and review in iTunes or Stitcher. Why are podcast ratings and reviews important and how do I leave one?

Lessons Learned

I learned my WHY

It’s no surprise that my most popular podcast episode in October was Episode 17 with Ridgely Goldsborough.

In that episode, he took me on a guided exercise to find my WHY. We all have a WHY that drives. But until I learned what mine truly was, I never knew what motivated me or why I do the things I do.

This episode changed my life and it can change yours too. Give it a listen.

I learned that great leaders demand three things…and at least one of them is surprising

I learned that great leaders demand three things.

1. Accountability

2. Pushback

3. That they work in your strengths

That second surprised me until I dug a little deeper. I cover it in-depth in this post.

2 months left

You have less than two months left to make this the best year of your life.

Think about how you will close out the year.

Which goals have you already hit? Celebrate.

Which ones are you close to hitting? Hit them this week or next if possible. Put it into another gear.

Which ones have you given up on? Ask yourself why.

Which ones do you need a miracle to achieve? Pray. Then go make a miracle happen.

I believe in you and I believe that these last two months are going to be miraculous.

What was the highlight of your October?

    Way to go, Matt!! I think it is remarkable that you have already done 21 podcasts! That took incredible planning, scheduling, and learning.

    It was a great idea to record your blog posts for awhile first – it got you used to talking to us so that you sound really comfortable on your podcasts.

    Loved the one with Ridgely (but you knew that already), and Sundi Jo was very endearing and inspiring.

    One pushback: we can pray for a miracle, but only God can make one happen. 😎

      Agreed but I think of Elijah..if he hadn’t kept asking his servant to look, the rain might never have come. 🙂

  2. Dan Erickson says:

    Great news, Matt. Keep it up!

  3. Joseph Lalonde says:

    Great job Matt! That’s awesome. My highlight for October was heading to Atlanta to attend the Catalyst Conference once again. So jammed packed with leadership knowledge and great people.

    Fantastic news, Matt. Great job! I am amazed at your consistent content output – it is both inspiring and relevant. And it just keeps coming. Amazing.
