EP#120 - Change Your Inner World, It Changes the Outer

EP#120 - Change Your Inner World, It Changes the Outer

August 15, 2019

In this episode, I share the concept of, when you change within, the people around you will start to change.

Why is that?

What law or rule is out there that proves this to be true?

Many times, when you truly make a shift within yourself, most of the time, your friends, specific family members, co-workers, etc., will change. And I don't mean them personally but instead, they may not be as close to you anymore.

Your inner world dictates the outer world as the source of your reality is from within you.

When you make a shift to aspire to higher levels of consciousness, the Universe will help remove people out of your way that do not serve the greater good for you and for them.

This is why people will change around you, once you change and so much more.

Tune in to hear the whole episode as I go deep into this concept.

EP#116 - How to Make Your Dreams a Reality

EP#116 - How to Make Your Dreams a Reality

July 31, 2019

Do you have a dream?

Do you want to live a more purposeful life?

Do you want to be able to see what you want and experience it within your reality?

I believe deep down, all of us have a dream.  We have aspirations that we want to achieve in this lifetime.

I believe there are things we want to experience and make life as best as possible.

But, why then, do many don't achieve these things?  Why is it that many go out, seek for achieving their dreams and fall short?

In this episode, I will share the difference between ALIGNING to your dreams vs CREATING your dreams.

There is a vastly different concept but when you understand the difference, it makes the uphill battle, a little easier to achieve.

EP#115 - Fake It Until You Make It

EP#115 - Fake It Until You Make It

July 23, 2019

A phrase that I have heard since I started in buisness, "Fake it until you make it."  

Is this effective?  Is it being authentic?

In an era where human consciousness is evolving and upgrading to new levels never experienced on this planet, one of the biggest factors that is playing a huge role is authenticity and being true to others.

 

In this episode, I share the power of not faking it until you make it and share concepts that you can adapt and realize the power of who you truly are that will help you evolve to new levels.

Many individuals in life have different sides to them.  When they are with their friends, they are one person.  When they are in business or at the office, they are another person.  When they are with family, they are another person.  When they are with themselves, they are another person.

Who truly are you when you don't show up as YOU with all aspects of your life?

EP#113 - Make a Choice and Commit

EP#113 - Make a Choice and Commit

July 17, 2019

How many times did you want to change something in your life and find yourself 1-2 months later, not doing what you commited to?

How many times did you let the wind of life take you instead of you declaring where you want to go?

After working with many entrepreneurs and studying human behaviour and pscyhology for over 10 years, I have noticed how many people quit or allow stories and excuses to pull them away from the EXACT thing they desire in their life.

In this episode, I share about the importance of making a choice, what it means to decide and how to commit to see it through all the way, even when it is failing..

Why would that be?  Why would I say, "Make a choice and see it through regardless of results?"

Tune in to find out...

EP#111 - The Choice of Freedom

EP#111 - The Choice of Freedom

July 11, 2019

Freedom is a word that may mean a variety of things to each individual.  Every time in the US, when 4th of July comes around, I think of Freedom in the sense of many realms and aspects to our lives.

I think about ourselves, from the most primitive, as a soul being given FREE WILL from our Creator.  

I think about the FREEDOM I have to think in whichever way I desire.

I think about the FREEDOM to choose who and what I want to be and show up in the world.

I think about the FREEDOM I have to create anything I desire for creativity and life is in our soul's DNA.

This episode will help give you more clarity and focus on what your freedom you choose to achieve, create, experience in your life.

Do you want freedom in your financials?  What does that look like?

Do you want freedom in your marriage?  What does that look like?

For more info, check out the podcast and let us know what you think!

EP#106 - The Eye of the Hurricane

EP#106 - The Eye of the Hurricane

June 12, 2019
We all have allowed ourselves to be affected by the storms of life.
 
There are infinite things that can take us off centered, distract us, and not allow us to be on our path, our vision that we have created and desire to experience.
 
I know this situation far too often and it is something that we all go through.
 
The truth is, this will consistently show up in your life, but as the old saying goes, "It is not about what happenes to you but how you react to it."
 
In this new episode on The Mindful Experiment, I share some life nuggets to help you realize when you are in the storm compared to being in the eye of the storm and what tools can help you along the way.
