EP#40 - The Power of Disappointment: How It Can Level You or Inspire You

August 14, 2018
00:0000:00

Disappointment is something we all face at one point or another in life.  May it be something small or something vastly unexpected.  Regardless of the magnitude of your disappointment, you always end up having two choices: Allowing it to level you or allowing it to inspire you.

How can disappointment ever be a bad thing if the Universe is always working for you?  I used to get caught up so many times in my life about coming up short to what it was I desired I wanted to accomplish.  It would take days and weeks before I would get over it.  But overtime, the message kept speaking clearer and clearer to me: The Universe is ALWAYS working for YOU!

It was that moment, life shifted and slowly but surely, I looked forward to the failures, the disappointments and much more.  It showed me how my focus was off or that the Universe had to break ties and connections I had to help me raise up to new levels of expansion and moving me closer to my visions.  

How do you allow for disappointment and coming up short on goals affect you?  How do you deal with failures and so forth?  Do you let them uplift you or bring you down?  Tune in as we dive deep into a concept we all face!

EP#38 - Breaking the Pattern of FEAR

August 7, 2018
00:0000:00

Fear is a human emotion that we all face.  It is part of the experience.  Fears are there, at times, for protection.  But in this modern society, our fears are usually false evidence appearing real (F.E.A.R.). The worries we had 1000 years ago, 5000 years ago or even 1 million years ago, don't exist today.  We don't have to worry about walking down a trail and have a saber tooth tiger around the bend.  We don't have to worry about being eaten by a lion or even worry about infectious disease when we have a severe wound.  Times have change but so has the saber tooth tiger.  Even though it may not exist anymore, it has evolved to exist within the mind.  This type of saber tooth tiger shows up in your life as worry, anxiety, anxiousness, anger, frustration, resentment and more.  It is the things that we fear about happening which about 99% of the time, they don't.  

In this episode, I break down the aspect of fear and how you can help your brain to stop focusing on fear and give it an opportunity to reset.  I will share what fear does to your critical thinking centers and how it actually blocks you from thinking and much more.

EP#32 - The Perspective We Created With Pain

July 11, 2018
00:0000:00

Pain is something we will all go through and always face.  Some call it, "suffering," but whatever the label you choose, it is something inevitable.  Why?  Why does pain/suffering have to exist?  Can we escape it all together?  OR is pain something truly absolutely amazing?  Is pain something that helps us grow?  Is it something that teaches us valuable lessons about life?  

Which one do you think is correct?  Well, the truth be told is, whichever way you look at it, you are right.  There is no right or wrong to this perspective.  You are the one who determines if pain is something that happens to you rather for you.  Or, you can see it as something happening for you, instead of at you.

In this episode, I will be sharing with you many different concepts of pain, sharing with you personal stories and at the end of this podcast episode, I can promise you, you will look at pain in a whole new way or a whole new inspiring way!  

Lastly, I share with you a few tips that can help you shift your perspective on pain into being something that benefits you rather than being a victim or being destructive to you.  Tune in!

EP#30 - The Inevitable Truth of Physical Life

July 2, 2018
00:0000:00

In today’s episode I am diving deep into chapter 10 of my new book, “Rediscover Your Greatness.” In this chapter, I will be discussing the Inevitable Truth of Life.  The truth of our physical life is, it will come to an end.  But instead of fearing the end, I will discuss concepts and aspects of why it is important to look at it as something to maximize your life and play out to the fullest.

I mention in the book and on this episode about living your life on E.  I share the importance of every single day, making sure you gave all that you can to every aspect of your day and when you do this, when your time is up, you will see, you left everything to the world (left with nothing in the tank).

EP#26 - How the Darkness Molds You Into the Light

June 19, 2018
00:0000:00

In life, we live in a world of duality.  There are positives and negatives.  Hot and cold.  Light and Darkness. Etc. Etc.  But, why is it that most of us fear the darkness?  Why is it that we rather enjoy a life that is all blissed out and peaceful and do whatever it takes to avoid going into the darkness?  Does this come from proramming at a young age that the darkness is scary?  Where does this come from all together?

In this episode, we will be discussing chapter 6 of my book, "Rediscover Your Greatness," and in this chapter, we dive into the law of duality and how the darkness is your portal, your gateway into the light.  We talk about how the Universe is always working FOR YOU, not against you.  So, when there is darkness in your life or what I love to say, "contrast", it is serving your highest good.  How can you use the darkness to propel you into the light.

I will be sharing multiple stories of how I went into the darkness and faced it head on and was grateful for the lessons it taught me.  I was grateful for who it turned me into being and how it truly served my highest good, even when my mind could not understand or comprehend it.  Tune in for more!
