3 Daily Practices of Successful People & 2 Ways to Improve Your Relationship with Money
Today, I am bringing something new to the table. With my good friend, Lewis Howes of The School of Greatness podcast, we’ve decided to join our heads together to talk about conversations that are uncomfortable, pressing on taboo topics, a bit thought provoking, and sometimes awkward to discuss openly. This is a space where we try to answer questions many of us may have thought of but didn’t have the opportunity to freely seek for answers.
So, welcome to the first episode of the Awkward Therapy Conversations. Lewis and I address the doubts surrounding our spirituality and becoming successful. Can we aspire to be wealthy and be spiritual at the same time? Do we have to give up success and wealth to deepen our spiritual intention? Let’s try to evaluate our relationship with money, how to stay humble throughout this journey, why success built on purpose is more fulfilling than just accumulating wealth.

3 Techniques to Switch from Overthinking to Thinking Effectively & 4 Ways to Turn That Into Action
Today, I’m going to talk about the difference between overthinking and thinking effectively, what leads us to overthink things instead of thinking through them to get clear answers, and why we tend to overthink and lose focus.
I share three ways we can differentiate the two and the characteristics we should look out for so we don’t end up wasting our time overthinking. Additionally, I list down four ways we can pivot from being an overthinker to becoming an action-doer, a rational thinker who wouldn’t shy away from making mistakes and failing, and has the initiative to take risks and seize opportunities.
Noah Cyrus ON: How to Handle Negative Opinions of Others & Turning Anxiety into Creativity
Today I sit down with the very amazing Noah Cyrus. Noah is a Grammy award-nominee, multi platinum, Nashville-born and Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter. Emerging in 2016 at the age of 16, she immediately captivated audiences with platinum singles "Make Me (Cry)" and Again. Noah teamed up with PJ Harding for the People Don't Change EP in 2021. Along the way, she performed at Coachella twice, while Billboard named her among its "21 Under 21" for three straight years. She also shined on The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ellen, and The Today Show. Now, she introduces the next chapter with the "I Burned LA Down".
Noah shares to us a vulnerable side of her and how music has helped her heal from her past. Growing up she mentioned that self-love and self-acceptance was something that she never really practiced and is still a difficult thing to do at the present but she is a work in progress and even though life is full of ups and downs, she is moving forward. We also exchanged our thoughts on why change is inevitable for people and how we can be comfortable with it. Noah herself experienced a life changing experience and I am so honored to hear her story.

Kendall Jenner ON: Setting Boundaries to Increase Happiness & Healing Your Inner Child
Today, I sit down with the one and only Kendall Jenner. Kendall is a successful business founder, international supermodel, founder of the incredibly successful tequila brand, 818, and star on the Hulu’s, the Kardashians, which premieres in its second season on September 22nd.
Kendal shows us a different side of her as she shares how her curiosity for people with brilliant minds and doing so much to give back to the world has eventually led to this interview. Behind the glamor and spotlight, she especially enjoys having some time alone with herself, and she values the importance of setting boundaries and why we should do things that lead to genuine happiness. We talk about her childhood and her love for animals, how the simple things give her the most joys, getting through grief after losing a dear friend, and finding the heart to be more kind to your inner child.
Kendall remains grounded and in tune with her inner goddess and is not allowing negativity and ill intentions change who she is, who she may become, and the purpose she is living by.
