    It's Never Done, It's Simply In Process | #30

    It's Never Done, It's Simply In Process | #30

     
    Why are we always in process? Because we choose to be. Living and being is a process, not an outcome and it involves doing the work and overcoming obstacles but we get better at it over time.
    In this episode we cover:

    What occurs when you choose to be in process and choose this as the foundation for life.
    Why "Im not good enough" is the source code that needs to be changed.
    What drives our need to be "done"?
    The goal of the new paradigm.
    How to enjoy the process of creating who we're being

    #Thrival Tips for your Thrival Kits:  


    •When the "not good enough" shows up, just remember - it's a feeling. Breathe and respond from love.

    •Accept that you're always in process and that's okay.

    •Be here now because there's only one moment. That's a gift. You can choose to be or not to be in process, and love and enjoy it.

    How Do You Know You're Stuck In The Drama | #29

    How Do You Know You're Stuck In The Drama | #29

    We all experience drama in our lives. In fact, we are very good at creating drama and being highly dramatic over the smallest things. It can be very frustrating especially when we don't know we're there. So, how do you know you're stuck in the drama?
    In this episode we cover:

    Suzy's personal experience with this distinction and the steps she took to get out of it.
    How drama affects your life and takes you away from the things you need to focus on.
    Recognising the drama by being aware of the 3 key elements of the old paradigm.
    How this distinction relates to previous ones we've discussed, especially the distinction of "I'm not good enough".  
    Identifying the source of the drama and getting through it.

    #Thrival Tips for your Thrival Kits:  

    Practice asking yourself often, "Where am I coming from - fear or love?" Then choose.
    Fear is insidious. It runs the world. So chances are, you are in fear whenever you ask if you are in fear.  So, let go and choose.
    You are the one that's causing everything that's occurring. You are causing it all with loving intention.

    If Something Doesn't Change, The Truth Hasn't Been Told | #28

    If Something Doesn't Change, The Truth Hasn't Been Told | #28

    It can be very frustrating when things don't go your way despite all the changes you make. But nothing will change no matter how many times you seem to change it if you don't tell the whole truth.
    In this episode we cover:

    Why this distinction is the ultimate responsibility that requires massive honesty.
    How this relates to the distinction of "I get to choose and create the whole of my reality".
    Lorna's experience of this distinction, how she overcame it and how she is dealing with it now.
    Being in charge of the distinction rather than getting rid of it.
    How the distinction applies to running your business.

    #Thrival Tips for your Thrival Kits:  

    If you want something to change, tell the truth and keep telling the truth until it does.
    You will recognize you've told the whole truth when the energy shifts, and it will when you tell the whole truth.
    Be patient and gentle with yourself. It's not a race. Be here now and just tell the truth.

    What Do You Mean By That | #27

    What Do You Mean By That | #27

    Being misunderstood or not understanding something can cause us frustration, but asking one this simple question can change everything: "What do you mean by that?"
    In this episode we cover:

    The challenges that changing communication channels bring.
    How and why it is important to be responsible in our communication.
    The reason why communication doesn't work when something isn't being said.
    The risks of reading between the lines.
    The use of miscommunication as a reason for not being clear enough.
    Why being misunderstood is a myth.

    #Thrival Tips for your Thrival Kits:  

    When you don't get the response you want or expect, ask yourself what you didn't say. Take responsibility and then communicate it.
    Whenever you find yourself reacting to a communication, 1) ask "what did you mean by that?" or 2) feedback what you thought it meant by saying "did you mean this?" and then respond.
    Being explicit in all your communication is a choice. It saves time, energy and makes life simple.

    The Purpose Of Indecision | #26

    The Purpose Of Indecision | #26

    Indecision may be uncomfortable or painful, especially when faced with making big or even small decisions, but it's part of the process that serves an important purpose. In this episode, we distill the purpose of indecision.
    In this episode we cover:

    The outcomes we can expect from the space of 'not knowing yet'.
    The critical role that indecision plays in creating our reality.
    2 scenarios of indecision in your life.
    How 'not knowing something' can make a difference to the decision making process.
    How making mistakes help us learn, grow and find our unshakeable truth.

    #Thrival Tips for your Thrival Kits:  

    Accept that indecision is part of your process and let go of self-judgment when you don't know. Just be willing to sit in the discomfort of indecision and it will shift.
    When you don't know what to choose or if you feel stuck, ask yourself: is it simply fear of choosing what you know you want, or is it that you actually need more information?
    Confusion and indecision are simply showing you there's something you do not know and that when you do know it, it will change everything.

    Love Yourself. Tell The Truth. Be Responsible. | #25

    Love Yourself. Tell The Truth. Be Responsible. | #25

    How would life be any different if you can you love yourself, tell the truth and be responsible? If finding the source of inner peace for when you are in the craziest, busiest, most challenging times of life is of interest, stick around to discover the magic held in this distinction.
    In this episode we cover:

    Suzy's Triple Top Line Questions to sorting opportunities: can I add value, will I have fun and can I make money?
    Cut-through and power of both the triple distinction and the triple top line questions in making decisions.
    This triple distinction, these are the 3 keys to the new paradigm.
    Suzy's personal experience of this distinction.
    Mastering the new paradigm by consistently applying the same rigor with these 3 distinctions.
    The meaning of loving yourself.
    Transforming your experience of life when you love yourself.

    #Thrival Tips for your Thrival Kits:  

    Loving myself means getting to know who this self is that I'm here to loe.  It's about doing the deeper work, accepting who you are.
    When you don't know what to do or how to deal with something, ask yourself: "what would loving myself look like right now?" And then do that.
    Use loving yourself, telling the truth and being responsible as a 3-step conscious process for 1 whole day and see what happens.
