9/4/2019
More

The intellectually thoughtful you and I may say we welcome failure and that we know we can learn from failure, but then there is the emotional you and I that very often struggles with it.

The Courage to Start

8/28/2019
More
Is there an idea you have been contemplating but haven't yet started? Hopefully this episode can help you to get started. Very often we are not scared of starting, rather we are scared of the discomfort that comes with starting - the thoughts/concerns we attach too starting.

A Spotlight on Judgement

8/21/2019
More
In today's episode I am discussing Judgement, a particular kind of judgement. Judgement towards people out there who are doing very meaningful work, making a positive difference in the lives of many people. Let's get selective about what we engage with, the content we consume, the conversations we have - it all impacts how we show up in the world. If we are swimming in a sea of judgement then perhaps taking action, being vulnerable, trying new things will be more challenging. If you...

(John Maxwell) John recommends that you ask yourself this question if contemplating a particular action: "Am I not taking action because it's not good for the situation or am I not taking action because it's not comfortable?"

Seeking Approval

8/7/2019
More
We all seek the approval from others to some extent. It is human nature, we all want to be liked, to be accepted, to be approved.
