We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode here and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

 

Fear of Rejection

Aaron talks about when he first started his business 5 years ago, people told him to get on podcasts.  Specifically John Lee Dumas-Entrepreneurs of Fire. Aaron wanted to be on his show. Everyone around him said there was no way he would get on the show.  He has been on the show 4 times and is #5 in John Lee Dumas’ top ten.

“What would have happened if I didn’t ask? - Aaron Walker

 

Transparency

Aaron says that after 6,000 podcasts they are starting their 12th cohort in Iron Sharpens Iron.  He says he says no at this point in his journey than he does saying yes. He asks the listener to think about what they are trying to do that may resonate with the person you want to say yes to you rather than no?

“We have got to develop a sense of courage to go out there and ask.” - Aaron Walker

Welcome to the View from the Top podcast, Season 2.  Up next you can hear Aaron Walker host an expert interview with Greg Salcicolli.

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode here and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

 

Greg Salcicolli Introduction

Aaron starts by talking about how a guy named Cody Foster recommended Greg’s book to him. He mentions how he and his wife had a disagreement 2 days before he received Greg’s book in the mail. Aaron took the book to his backyard and started reading. He was shocked to find the very first chapter addressed the exact same problem he was having with his wife. Aaron was impressed by the book and bought copies for everyone in the mastermind group, and they all enjoyed it.

“I’m reading the book, and I’ll be dad gummed if you’re not talking in the first chapter about the same problem my wife and I were discussing.” - Aaron Walker

 

The Reason that Great Men Fall

Aaron asks Greg the reason that great men fall. It is not an overnight process, it takes a combination of a lot of things. Greg says it usually starts with the orientation of one’s ego. If your ego is pointing you in the wrong direction, it can cause problems in your life. You have to focus on the right things or your ego orientation will cause trouble. Greg says to work on bad habits and isolation. We make mistakes when we are in isolation. We are not designed to be alone all the time, we are designed to work together on things.

“The seed bed where fall starts and begins, is with an ego that has a wrong orientation.” - Greg Salcicolli

Welcome to the View from the Top podcast, Season 2.  Up next you can hear Daniel Bauer interview Aaron Walker as they discuss vulnerability.

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode here and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

 

The Foundation

Aaron talks about how authenticity is the foundation of what they are building at Iron Sharpens Iron. Aaron says it is important to be vulnerable and transparent, because it allows you to overcome the difficulties in our lives. He also says getting up in front of people and being transparent is encouraging and inspiring to them. This can build a cycle of transparency and authenticity that benefits everyone involved.

“The more you are transparent with people, it gives them permission to be transparent with you, and now we have an authentic conversation.” -Aaron Walker

 

Personal Bias

Aaron says by telling the truth, people can spare others of the challenges that they have faced. People also have a tough time seeing their own flaws, and having others being honest with you and your flaws can lead to great changes. He uses the duct tape activity as an example. One person sits in the middle with duct tape on their mouth so they cannot speak, while the group around them gives their honest opinion on things they can improve. The more people that share the same view on someone can change how they view themselves and their flaws, and this ultimately helps people work on their flaws.

“The more people share in those groups and the more they are honest with the people that are participating, the more it helps them.” -Aaron Walker

 

The Reasons People Hide

Aaron talks about the reasons that people are not transparent. He says the main reason is because of trust. If people are not sure if they can trust you, they usually won’t be fully transparent. Aaron stresses how important it is to be a trustworthy person, and to be confidential when someone tells you their story. Aaron also says there has to be a good time and place to be vulnerable. This is not small talk, this can’t be something that gets brought up at the dinner table.

“I highly recommend that you don't form a new relationship and air all of your dirty laundry immediately, people have to earn the respect to share at this intimate level we are referring to.” -Aaron Walker
