Managing Emotions and Having Compassion for Yourself

Managing Emotions and Having Compassion for Yourself

August 15, 2019

As humans, we are emotional beings. That means we always need to be aware of the emotions we are feeling and learn how to manage them intelligently. Sometimes "the show must go on" and we have to compartmentalize in the short-term, but eventually we have to deal with our emotions. If we don't deal with our emotions it will eventually show up negatively in our business and personal life.

In this episode we explain how to push through the pain and have compassion for yourself. We actually get personal and explain how we have gone through managing some tough emotions and how you can too.

Getting Clarity on Your Top Values

Getting Clarity on Your Top Values

July 11, 2019

In several episodes we've referenced values and figured it was about time to show you an exercise for how to determine your top values. Until you are in alignment with your values in what you think, feel and do, you will continue to feel exhausted and unproductive. Focusing on on three top values helps you put everything in perspective and improves your communications, productivity, and feeling of accomplishment.

Check the expanded show notes for the link to download the values exercise cards so you can complete the exercise yourself. It will change your perspective and change your life.

The Stories We Tell Ourselves with James Hazlerig

The Stories We Tell Ourselves with James Hazlerig

June 27, 2019

Stories are compelling, statistics are not. When it comes down to it, we all love a good story. We can even get spell-bound as we read a book, or watch a movie, but probably don't realize you are living your own story. Since we are writing our own future, we have a lot of literary license over visualizing and living the story we want to hear. How do you want the next chapter of your life to go?

We are joined by James Hazlerig, a hypnotist and story teller, who uses hypnotic storytelling to help his clients quit smoking, release fear, manage stress, and live happier lives. You can learn more about James at: http://hypnoticstorytellingcourse.com/

Take Smoke Breaks to Avoid Burnout

June 13, 2019

OK, we're NOT advocating people start smoking, but we learn some interesting lessons from the now old-fashioned idea of smoke breaks during the work day. Taking regular breaks helps us avoid burnout. In fact, sitting chained to your desk all day is actually as or more unhealthy than smoking (ever heard sitting is the new smoking?). Here's some practical advice for how you can incorporate small breaks into your day so you don't burn out in flames or smolder like a cigarette. Taking breaks will actually increase your productivity.
