Youth motivational speaker and Amazon bestselling author Jeff Yalden recorded Episode 28 of The BOOM Podcast as he was getting ready to fly out to speaking gigs in St. Louis, Missouri and Harrisburg, Illinois.
He began by giving a huge shout-out to a few people in his close circle of friends for coming to the aid of his fiancée Janet’s 91-year-old mother, who had suffered a fall while the pair were out on their boat on Labor Day.
“We had to reach out to a couple of friends that were able to get there within minutes, and I can’t thank them enough,” he said.
Yalden added that relationships are like a bank account. What you invest in it emotionally, you can take back out.
“Remember that about relationships. Bring the BOOM every single day to your close circle, your trusted confidants and the people that you admire, respect and you trust with your life,” he said. “There is going to come a day when you’ve got to pull that back out.”
Yalden has been laying out daily principles of his brand-new workbook and planner, The BOOM 28 Day Boot Camp: Creating a Life of Success. Find Motivation. Crush Goals. Overcome Obstacles. Live with Purpose.
The BOOM Boot Camp is the perfect companion to Yalden’s Amazon bestselling book, BOOM! One Word to Inspire Action, Deliver Rewards, and Positively Affect Your Life Every Day.
The BOOM principles can change your life, but you must be committed to putting in the work necessary to make your plan a reality.
If you have been taking action on these steps, you are now ready for Day 14:
TURN UP THE BOOM!
What you invest you get in return. Commit further. Turn it up
What are you investing in?
“You invest in your car. You invest in education. But some of the important things that need to be invested in, we don’t make a priority,” he said.
Your NUMBER ONE INVESTMENT PRIORITY should be to INVEST IN YOURSELF.
If you invest in yourself, you will find that you are more able to then invest in your family and in your close circle of trusted friends.
Contrary to what you might think, investing in yourself is far from selfish.
“Self-care – investing in yourself – is probably one of the greatest things that you can do,” said Yalden. “After you take care of this, you now feel more apt to be able to reach out to others. You have more energy and more patience. You can be more present – more engaging and inspiring to other people.”
And as you turn up the BOOM – make sure that your efforts line up with your expectations.
“Do you expect great success? What do your efforts look like? Are you expecting great success from someone that’s grinding 50 hours a week, yet you are only putting in three hours a day? Your expectation is too high and is going to lead to great disappointment.”
Does your effort match the result that you are expecting?
“When I say turn up the BOOM, what I am saying is to ‘bring it’ every day. Bring time management. Bring your organizational skills. Bring your to-do list, and bring being present every single day.”
Take personal responsibility for the little things. When we take care of the little things, the bigger things start to happen.
“My friends – Turn up the BOOM. You can do it. Today is the day. Recommit. Take action. Be motivated. Be present – and most of all, be awesome!”
