Comparing Ourselves To Other People Just Makes Us Feel Bad

Many of us compare ourselves to others with regard to our looks, our jobs, and the money we have (or don’t). Most of the time when we make these comparisons, it makes us feel bad about ourselves. We fall into the trap of believing that other people have more than us and that we will always be less than. There is nothing wrong with finding inspiration or direction from other people, but in order to realize our true power, we must honor our authenticity and find our own individual path to...


If You Trust Yourself Everything Will Be Okay

So many of us try to protect ourselves by not trusting other people. Yes, we do need to try to make good decisions for ourselves, but if we make our entire lives about a lack of trust in other people, we will close our hearts to new experiences. A better approach may be learning how we can trust ourselves. This way, no matter what happens, we will trust that we can handle whatever comes our way, even if we get hurt. Focusing on trusting ourselves allows us to have the strength to open...


We Can't Always Tie Up Loose Ends

Most people feel great when they can tie up loose ends, but we are often faced with situations where ‘closure’ isn’t possible. We find this most in our relationships with other people. We can have a bad breakup, an argument, or even a slight disagreement, and as hard as we try, we just can’t make things right with someone. The truth is that life can be messy sometimes, and all we can do is accept things as they are. Through our acceptance, we acknowledge that we can’t change the messiness,...


Are You Strong Enough To Change Your Life?

Wouldn’t it be great to make your own rules, always be your authentic self, and love what you do each day? So many people these days are encouraging us to find our own path or follow our bliss. Although this can be a wonderful new journey, if we don’t love ourselves or have a secure identity, we will suffer greatly—we might not even have the strength to make necessary changes. Please listen to this podcast to cultivate self-love and resilience to launch your new journey and achieve your...


How Can We Respond To People When They Are Rude Or Obnoxious?

It can be difficult to navigate how to respond to people when they are rude or obnoxious to us. Our inclination might be to respond harshly, but this type of response can create more drama. Often it is best to take a pause and contemplate how our response will serve us. Sometimes it is best to let things go and other times we can cultivate a response that fosters our goals. Either way, focusing on how our responses will serve us moves us away from needless drama and towards more peace and...


If You Want More Success, Then Know Yourself Less

Trying desperately to know ourselves can be just another way of being addicted to certainty. We seek safety in knowing our capabilities and our path to success. But defining ourselves as a certain type of person limits our possibilities. We end up stationary when everything around us is changing. If you want more success, then claim to know yourself less!


The Words That Are Left Unsaid

As much as we care about the people in our lives, there are many times that we leave important things left unsaid. We always think people know how we feel, but sometimes the people we care about have no idea how much we love them or how meaningful they are to us. Don’t leave it to chance. Time passes quickly, and we don’t want to miss out on giving one of greatest gifts we can give—that is, just letting those we care about know how deeply we feel for them.


Nothing Is Permanent: That's Good News When You Are Suffering

There are certain events in our lives that will cause us pain and create suffering. Sometimes we judge ourselves too harshly for how we show up for these difficult events. We forget that others suffer just like we do, and that our pain does not mean we are weak or not able to handle what is happening. Everything is always changing, and suffering, too, is transient in nature. This awareness can help us ease our suffering, reminding us that life keeps changing and there is still space for joy,...


How Can We Have Less Conflicts In Our Relationships?

The problem we have with most relationships is that we think we know what the other person is thinking. But the truth is that we often have no idea what is going through the mind of our boss, friend, family, spouse, or boyfriend/girlfriend. We sometimes assume something that is not true. Listen to this podcast to learn how to pause and question our thoughts about the conflicts in our relationships. Maybe it can be the beginning of having less stress and more joy with the people we interact...


The Path To Less Suffering

Some of us believe that we don’t have the right to feel upset about things because we have good lives or many blessings. What we often fail to realize is that any suffering can overwhelm our minds regardless of how seemingly insignificant the source is. If we are willing to acknowledge the validity of how we feel—whether the root is big or small—we can create an opening for finding a new perspective and letting go of some or all of our pain.


A New Mindset For The New Year

From our experiences, we know that the year to come will be filled with unexpected events. How can we prepare ourselves to deal with uncertainty with more strength and resilience? Listen to this podcast to find a way to embrace the unknown, helping you to stay strong and resilient no matter what you face. MAYBE how you show up for the future will open you up to new possibilities and opportunities for the year to come. MAYBE THE BEST IS YET TO COME!


Do You Give Enough To Other People?

Some of us limit how much we are willing to give to other people based on our past and fears. It's important that we examine our feelings towards giving because it can be such a meaningful and fulfilling part of our lives. The act of giving opens our hearts, enriches our lives, connects us to other people and overall makes the world a better place. A world we feel comfortable leaving to our children. This podcast will explore what holds us back from giving and how we can connect to the deep...


When Things Don't Work Out As Planned

As the new year approaches, many of us are thinking about things that did not work out as planned or goals we did not achieve this past year. BUT NO NEED TO WORRY! You always have this moment, and in this moment, life always will offer you something new to experience. And the more you sit in the now, the more you will feel joy and satisfaction while allowing yourself to be guided towards a new year filled with hope and possibility.


Make The Holiday Season About Letting Go

Sometimes the holiday season is not always filled with cheer. It can be a time when we have more disappointment and conflict with relatives and friends whether at a holiday celebration or special event. However, it is also a wonderful time to let go of past and present hurtful situations, so we can start the new year with a clean slate. MAYBE the best New Year’s Resolution is to see our relationships with fresh eyes in the year to come.


Why Are You So Distracted?

A lot of people pride themselves on getting many things done at once, but what many people don’t realize is that when we are distracted and try to focus on multiple things, we often neglect the situation or the person in front of us, we don’t present them with our best selves, and we don’t get the best results. We also miss out on the most precious and productive part of our lives, which, in reality, is pure presence. When we are fully present we are able to launch new businesses, achieve...


Do You Hate Your Body When You Look In The Mirror?

Have you ever looked in the mirror and started to feel horrible about how your body looked? We don’t always realize it, but many of us have been programmed to reject our bodies, spending our lives searching for an ideal of beauty. Yet, the definition of beauty in the dictionary is “that which gives pleasure to the mind or senses.” This means we get to determine our notion of beauty based on what gives us pleasure. If we focus more on what pleases us, we might just find that our bodies are...


Are You A People Pleaser?

Those of us who have a tendency to be people-pleasers usually want the best for other people. However, the other, more well-known part of being a people-pleaser is the need for everyone to like us, which often leads to anxiety, worry, and ultimately self-compromise. When we can give up people-pleasing, we can start thinking about the pleasure of speaking our minds, the pleasure of achieving our goals, and the pleasure of taking control of our own lives by letting go of the pain involved in...


How Can We Treat The People We Love Better?

For some reason, many of us tend to take our anger, discomfort, and frustrations out on the people we love most. We may insist that it’s because we are most comfortable with our loved ones, but we forget that without tender care, even the best relationships become broken. This podcast will give us tools to treat each moment with our loved ones as sacred and always be reminded that love is the bridge to everything wonderful.


Why Don't You Think You Are Beautiful?

If you were to look up the definition of ‘beauty’ in the dictionary, you would find that beauty is defined as “that which gives the highest degree of pleasure to the senses or the mind.” But are we truly cognizant of what actually gives us pleasure? Or have we been conditioned to be pleased by what the outside world considers beautiful? If our search for beauty is more about external standards of beauty and less about what truly pleases us, we often find ourselves living in a tremendous...


Does Being Mean Move Your Life Forward?

Sometimes we want to be mean to someone because they hurt us. We blame them for something bad that happened, or we want to teach them a lesson. Even though we might feel justified, acting this way tends to bring us further from where we want to be in our lives. This podcast will explore six questions that we can ask ourselves to guide our decision-making, pushing us towards greater joy and success.
