Welcome to the Riffing on Realness™ podcast.
I’m Carla Royal, a mindset and performance coach working with high achieving entrepreneurs, and with me is Jennifer
Flynn, an intuitive business strategist. If you are wrestling with how to be real in the midst of rampant superficiality and it’s causing you to overthink, be too guarded, and not live your
potential, then you are in the right place.
In this podcast, Jennifer and I explore how, dropping the masks, being real and vulnerable, can help us connect, adapt, and find a richness of experience amid the chaos.
Expectations vs Agreements (Part 2 to Difficult Conversations Episode)
Welcome to a continuation of last week’s episode where we take difficult conversations further by exploring the difference between ‘Agreements’ and ‘Expectations’.
We dive into how they impact relationships, communication, and our experience within the world around us. They are often the source of difficult conversations and a clear understanding of their nature. Notice how they allow us to navigate talks with more clarity and create stronger outcomes.
Difficult Conversations…The Whats, Whys, Hows, and Whos
Having uncomfortable and difficult conversations is …well….difficult and uncomfortable. Sometimes these conversations find us. Sometimes we find them. We have all had to engage in them either as the instigator or the receiver. In today's episode, we discuss what comes up during these experiences and how we can grow through them and create outcomes that serve all parties. How can we be both understood and understanding?
This is part 1 of 2. Part 2 will drop next week!
The Seats on Your Bus
You are the sum of the people you spend the most time with. They are often a reflection of who you are and how big you get to live.
Join us in conversation as we recount how people have changed our lives over time and what we have learned in different seasons of life and what roles our tribes play.
The Bad Reputation of Negative Emotions
Emotions are here to stay and they get many labels both good and bad. Our culture often dictates what is acceptable in terms of how we express them and when we express them.
In this episode, we unpack what this culture calls ‘negative emotions’ and how they have tremendous power to serve us and heal us just as much if not more than what gets labeled as ‘positive’ emotions.
Join us while we explore the giving of permission to feel all of our emotions and honor what each has to offer without judgment.
Control Enthusiasts and Perfectionists….Say I
Have you been holding on too tightly? The more tightly we try to control things the more stressed and anxious we become. When we can loosen our grip we can find more joy and ease and wellbeing. Joins us while we find a sense of direction and connection in all the unlikely places of perfectionism and comparison and expectations in a world that sometimes causes us to ‘white knuckle’ our way through the day.
Comparison Gremlins And Keeping Up With The Jones’
If you are on someone else’s expected journey for you, you are not on YOUR path. In this episode, we explore how your path is YOUR path and you are exactly where you need to be. Sometimes our paths overlap or travel alongside those of others. It’s time to take back our own authenticity to walk on our own path… in our own time; without comparison or judgment.
Listen and remember with us, how to let go of what does not serve you and embrace your own power. We can be the example or we can be the warning…there is wisdom and healing in both. It’s time to let go of comparison and live free of the expectations of others.
