098: Scarcity Mentality

4/2/2018
More
Sometimes the beliefs you hold, end up holding you back. “I’m not good enough, I can’t, I don’t have enough time, I’m not as good as _____, I would if I had more money, this is how I am, I can’t change, if my circumstances were different I could”... etc. These beliefs cause us to think with a scarcity mentality which in turn causes depression, comparison, settling, complacency, dependence, fear... etc. Understanding scarcity mentality is a good first step in change.

095: Finding A Mentor & Making Friends It’s 10:10PM on a Sunday night, everyone else is in bed because I guess the time change hit us harder than expected. I’m sipping coffee and bourbon (mixed obvi). Daylight savings time is sweet because we get more time to catch the sunset but it also messes up our nap and wake up time schedules for the kiddos. Hanna is sleeping so this week its just me and I’m kind of stuck or “in the pit” as Hanna likes to say. This is a short episode on the value of...

Ordinary people can still live extraordinary lives when they learn patience & perseverance. We value continual personal growth, relational growth, spiritual growth, intellectual growth etc, but what do you do when you feel like you’re stuck in a “season” and not able to see any progress?

081: What Are Core Values

10/9/2017
More
It’s important to be honest with ourselves and be able to identify things that we actually value vs. things we wish we valued more. Once we identify our core values- making decisions is a lot easier, but if we haven’t defined what we value we run the risk of drifting in the unknown. For creatives and business minded people to be unclear is to be unkind, and that is why it is crucial to define your core values for yourself. We talk about all this and answer some emails in this episode. Fern...
