Together, they embark on a fascinating exploration of intuition, tarot, and coaching, diving deep into the realms of self-discovery and personal transformation.

A Peak Performance Power Process

Host Karen Roberts - https://karenrobertscoaching.com Special Guest Todd Taylor ​​Welcome to another captivating episode of our podcast! In this episode, we have a special guest, Todd Taylor, who is an esteemed business success and mental fitness coach. Todd will be sharing his invaluable insights on the peak performance power process. Todd Taylor is an expert in identifying the saboteurs that hinder personal growth. He takes a process-driven approach, delving into the root causes rather than just addressing the symptoms. By doing so, he helps individuals cultivate new habits and tap into the dormant powers that lie within all of us. Prepare to be inspired as Todd shares his intriguing backstory. From a business venture after high school to discovering his potential in video production and marketing, Todd's journey is filled with valuable lessons. Drawing inspiration from his father's experience in the industry, he ventured into various business ventures, including digital marketing and DVD authoring. He even had the opportunity to work with renowned fitness expert Billy Blanks. Recently, Todd made a transition to coaching, driven by his desire to unlock people's hidden potential. Through his own transformative experience with the Positive Intelligence program, he discovered a powerful tool to address the ten saboteurs that affect our happiness and success. These saboteurs, ingrained survival mechanisms from childhood, often hinder personal growth without our awareness. Todd emphasizes the importance of empowering individuals to shape their future and choose happiness. In this episode, Karen and Todd delve into the concept of saboteurs and sage powers. They highlight the significance of recognizing and addressing negative emotions that we all possess, such as anxiety, stress, anger, or depression. On the flip side, they discuss the sage powers within us, including empathy, curiosity, innovation, navigation, and activation with clear focus. By going through a specific process, individuals can label and anchor their saboteurs, effectively shifting to a sage perspective. This rewiring of neurological pathways enables automatic reactions that move from saboteur to sage, allowing us to discover gifts and opportunities in every situation. To illustrate the power of sage perspective, the hosts share a captivating Chinese fable called the white stallion story. This tale underscores the unpredictability of events and teaches us not to judge whether something is good or bad. It reinforces the idea that there are gifts and opportunities in everything, a key lesson taught by sage perspective. The hosts also discuss the challenge of taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture, rather than getting caught up in the moment's story. They acknowledge that humans are emotional beings, and transitioning from saboteur mode to sage perspective can be difficult. However, they introduce a program that helps individuals develop three core muscles: saboteur interceptor, sage perspective, and self-command (meditation). This combination of mental and physical techniques serves as a pattern interrupt, allowing individuals to be more present and shift their focus from negative to positive. By practicing and changing the neurological pathways in the brain, one can choose their reactions to thoughts and emotions. Throughout the episode, the hosts present scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of the program. They mention MRI scans showing a decrease in gray brain matter in the left quadrant and an increase in the right quadrant, indicating the shift from saboteurs to sage perspective. Over 500,000 people, including CEOs, Stanford students, and Fortune 100 companies, have benefited from this approach, further emphasizing its effectiveness. In summary, this episode explores the power of recognizing and addressing negative emotions, rewiring the brain through specific techniques, and embracing the sage perspective...


How to Overcome Victim Mindset

Host Karen Roberts - https://karenrobertscoaching.com Special Guest Matt Findora In today's show, we have a very special guest, Matt Findora, a mindset coach who will be sharing invaluable insights on how to overcome the victim mindset. Matt's journey from being a former US Marine Corps air traffic controller to becoming a mindset coach is truly inspiring. He now devotes his life to coaching young men and helping them overcome the victim mindset, allowing them to achieve their purposeful life goals. In this episode, Matt opens up about his personal experiences, including his upbringing in a negative atmosphere and a pivotal event during his senior year of high school that changed his life forever. The conversation dives deep into the power of being open to opportunities and the significance of identifying your purpose to fuel motivation and commitment. Matt emphasizes the need for an action plan, goal setting, and creating daily routines that establish positive habits aligning with your vision. We also explore the effectiveness of vision boards in visualizing your desired outcomes. But it doesn't stop there. We go further into the importance of mindset and overcoming the victim mindset. Many people resist change and prefer to remain on autopilot, blaming external circumstances for their lack of progress. We discuss how weight loss companies capitalize on this and delve into the concept of a victim mindset, where individuals struggle to take responsibility for their actions and constantly blame circumstances, viewing life as happening to them rather than for them. Self-accountability and acceptance of one's current situation are highlighted as the first steps towards personal growth. Throughout the episode, we explore various factors contributing to the victim mindset, such as unresolved trauma, feelings of betrayal, codependency, and manipulation. These experiences can lead to a negative perception of oneself and a lack of self-confidence. However, the hosts encourage breaking free from these patterns and taking charge of personal growth. To develop a growth mindset, we suggest asking the question, "What makes your heart sing?" This helps identify passions and purpose. We emphasize the importance of emotional intelligence, including practices like meditation, visualization, journaling, and gratitude, which cultivate self-acceptance and allow individuals to focus on the positive aspects of life. We acknowledge that society, education systems, and conditioning often discourage the development of a growth mindset, making it crucial for individuals to actively practice daily gratitude, journaling, and other mindset-shifting techniques. We highlight the transformative power of gratitude and how it fosters a ripple effect of positivity, benefiting not only oneself but also others. Transitioning from a victim mindset to a growth mindset requires love as a starting point. By cultivating self-love, individuals witness a transformative shift in their perception of themselves and their surroundings. We emphasize the significance of celebrating even the smallest wins in life, regardless of societal norms discouraging acknowledgment of accomplishments. Intentional actions and achievements allow individuals to break free from the victim mindset. We also explore the benefits of establishing morning and evening rituals, including listing essential tasks the night before and avoiding phone usage upon waking up. Incorporating self-care into morning routines is essential, and we share personal practices like reading a chapter from a book, meditation, and creating space for relaxation. Self-care should never be accompanied by guilt; it allows individuals to replenish their energy and continue pouring into others from a full cup. The unique challenges men face in prioritizing self-care are discussed, including societal expectations and limited emotional range. Vulnerability is often seen as a weakness, hindering...

Host Karen Roberts introduces Aldreama, emphasizing the importance of having a productivity strategist and declutter coach in our lives. During this thought-provoking conversation, we explore the reasons behind our tendency to hold onto more things than we should. Aldreama shares personal experiences and reveals that clutter can stem from various factors such as upbringing, significant losses, sentimental attachments, and a desire to repurpose items. Together, we discuss the significance of asking challenging questions to discern what is truly useful versus what is simply clutter. Aldreama emphasizes that decluttering is not a one-time task but a commitment to maintaining a clutter-free environment. We uncover how clutter can reflect deeper issues in our lives, such as feeling overwhelmed or lacking boundaries. Aldreama encourages us to examine all areas of our lives that may be impacted by clutter, including major life transitions like moves and divorces. Drawing parallels to Feng Shui, we acknowledge the similarities in principles but highlight the importance of individualized organization approaches. We share personal experiences and emphasize the need to avoid overwhelming ourselves with extensive decluttering tasks that hinder progress. Our conversation delves into the effects of clutter on our minds, productivity, and overall well-being. We discuss how clutter acts as visual noise, constantly distracting and hindering our focus. This disruption can significantly impact our ability to generate ideas, make decisions, and ultimately cost us financially. We share a success story from one of our clients who, after participating in a five-day decluttering challenge, gained clarity and successfully launched her own business. This story exemplifies how clutter can obstruct progress and hinder the realization of lucrative opportunities. Exploring the subconscious impact of clutter, both physical and emotional, we define clutter as things that no longer serve us, including people in our lives. We highlight the concept of external clutter and its contribution to visual noise, especially in a work-from-home environment. With constant distractions and tasks vying for our attention, productivity and focus suffer. Addressing the impact of clutter on home-based work, we acknowledge that the rate of impact has increased since the COVID-19 pandemic. Working from home brings additional challenges as various activities and responsibilities compete for our attention, creating constant mental chatter that hampers productivity. We share our personal experiences with organization and the satisfaction we derive from a well-organized space. We discuss our dislike for wasting time searching for things, emphasizing the importance of quick and easy access to items. To stay on top of clutter, we suggest regular check-ins with a professional organizer or accountability partner. These check-ins allow us to address any clutter accumulation, reassess our organizational systems, and maintain a clutter-free environment. We also highlight the benefits of having a clutter buddy, someone who can offer support and accountability during the decluttering process. Overall, this engaging podcast episode explores the profound impact of clutter on various aspects of our lives and emphasizes the importance of maintaining a clutter-free environment to enhance productivity, clarity, and financial success. We encourage you to examine your clutter, commit to decluttering, and incorporate strategies to ensure the long-term maintenance of a clutter-free lifestyle. Join us in uncovering the...

Laban's turning point came during a period of strict lockdowns when he felt an undeniable urge to share his voice with the world. With only 10 subscribers, he reached out to his idol, Les Brown, and to his surprise, Les agreed to be a guest on his show. Laban poured his heart out during the interview, sharing his own story of transformation. During their conversation, something magical happened. Les Brown recognized Laban's potential and encouraged him to write a book based on his gambling background, titled "Bet On You." Les outlined a blueprint for success, including turning the book into a keynote speech and a three-day retreat. In a moment of audacity, Laban promised to deliver the book by a specific date, despite never having written anything significant before. Within a mere six weeks, Laban fulfilled his promise and delivered the first draft of the book to Les Brown. This process completely changed his life as Les followed through with his commitment, wrote a remarkable forward, and endorsed the book.

Laban emphasizes the power of creating a platform and inviting heroes into it.

Through this approach, Laban formed meaningful relationships, friendships, partnerships, and joint ventures. Although Laban is not yet famous or a millionaire, he shares his deep gratitude for being mentored and inspired by extraordinary people. He emphasizes that his success did not come from luck but from taking action and overcoming fears and imposter syndrome. Laban encourages listeners to pursue their own dreams and reminds them that there is ample room for like-minded individuals to connect and make an impact. As the podcast draws to a close, Laban acknowledges that everyone has the potential to achieve similar success if they take action and refuse to let self-limiting beliefs hold them back.
