Welcome to Episode 112 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast, we talk with Jeff Heggie, a former professional rodeo cowboy who uses this background and his extensive experience in banking and as an entrepreneur to help others achieve their biggest dreams. What happens in the 3.4 seconds when a steer wrestler faces a 700-pound steer head on? Jeff’s description will have you on the edge of your seat. Although very few of us would even consider steer wrestling, Jeff equates this experience to the importance of not letting fear intimidate you.

Describing fear as “something in the future that’s not real,” Jeff explains the process he used to overcome his initial fear in the rodeo ring and how it can also help entrepreneurs build and grow a business. He takes a unique look at achieving goals and the importance of reflecting on achievements as well as failures to see what they can teach you going forward.

So if you want to know:

  • Why you should find something every day that takes you out of your comfort zone
  • How, when we put things off, the more difficult they become
  • The importance of breaking challenges into pieces and taking them one step at a time
  • Why you need to put yourself in the position of doing it rather than watching it
  • How a “mindset journal” can help you change the negative conversations in your head
