    Self-reliance, self-respect, and a mindset to go along with it

    Self-reliance, self-respect, and a mindset to go along with it

    A single thought can change everything. Your perception relies on your mindset which relies on your thoughts. This is a multi-faceted episode covering three different topics but reminding you of the importance of self-respect, creating access to inner resources, and how being around the wrong people can take away both.

    The hidden emotions that may be inside you and you don't know it

    The hidden emotions that may be inside you and you don't know it

    Most people aren't taught emotional intelligence in their upbringing. And because of that, there are often lingering negative emotions hanging around inside us that might need to be addressed if we're going to experience a life without the burden of anxiety, depression, and emotional triggers.

    Getting out of anxiety and depression are often not easy tasks, but there is an angle I take today that might give you a good start.

    Closing the door so that you can stop overthinking and start moving forward

    Closing the door so that you can stop overthinking and start moving forward

    Sometimes you have no idea why someone did something that hurt or affected you somehow, and you just have to know the reason. You may never find out because they won't share that reason. I call this an open loop. It's how we become obsessed with certain thoughts that we can't get closure for.

    When this happens, life can seem to stop, and anxiety and depression have a higher chance of starting.

    It's time to close the door on old thought patterns that only do us harm.

Pure Gold

I think I found this podcast just in time. I have recently gone through a painful breakup and my anxiety and obsessive thoughts have drained me for months, but now I realise it’s probably the way I have been dealing with these things my entire life. Your talks keep me grounded and remind me there is more to life, and that is invaluable to me. I listen to at least one episode every night before I go to bed, and always sleep well and wake up with a fresh take on my day.

Amazing voice too 🙂🙂
