3 Myths To Avoid About Happiness

September 6, 2019

We all want to be happy. If you didn’t, you wouldn’t be listening to this podcast. But in order to be happy, we need to figure out what happiness is, and more importantly, what happiness isn’t.

Every one of us has their own idea of what happiness is. We all see happiness in a different way and may think there is a different way of reaching that ever-elusive goal. But there are some pitfalls, some flaws in our thinking that may try to through us off-track along the way.

That’s why I wanted to share 3 myths about happiness and briefly explain just how easily they could actually lead us toward pain and unhappiness.

Break The Habit Loop With Mindfulness

Break The Habit Loop With Mindfulness

August 23, 2019

Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens.

Mindfulness can be a useful tool in identifying and modifying bad habits.  We develop a habit loop filled with cues and triggers that can force you to lead life on autopilot.  By becoming mindfully aware of these cues and triggers, as well as the outcomes of rewarding yourself, you are able to modify this loop in a positive way.

Dealing With A Job Loss

Dealing With A Job Loss

August 16, 2019

I will never forget the day I lost my job.  It was horrifying.  I was in complete shock and felt like my world was shattering around me.  Instead of showing my feelings and emotions to my family and the world, I decided that I had to be strong and act like it was for the best.  Act like everything was going to be alright, even though I really wasn’t sure that it was going to be.

It seems cliché, but when you go through a tragedy or a crisis, like losing your job, most of us experience some version of the five stages of grief.  We may think this is reserved for death or divorce, but the same principles apply to any tragedy in your life.

We are all different, so everyone experiences these stages differently.  Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, the psychiatrist who identified these stages, said they’re not necessarily experienced linearly, and some people may not experience them at all.  They are just broad, sweeping stages that people go through when grieving.

Recognizing these stages can help you cope with the loss of your job and help you deal with your emotions so you can begin to recover professionally.

Move From Mediocre To Excellent

Move From Mediocre To Excellent

August 12, 2019

We all have that natural tendency to want to fit in and not stand out from the crowd too much. Where do you think this tendency comes from? I personally think it comes from long, long ago when we traveled the Earth in tribes. It was beneficial for us to blend in and not stand out from the tribe. Standing out and being different could mean death. We wanted to fit in with the tribe so they would provide safety, shelter, and food.

But what has happened over the years is that people began to not want to fit in. Many people have decided that they want more than they were getting from being like everyone else.  Some of the people that change the world the most don’t blend in with society at all.

So do you dare to be different? Do you dare to be excellent? If so, this episode explores some questions you can ask yourself to take action and move from mediocrity to excellence.
