I know first hand that it’s way too easy to slip into the rat race of competition and comparison. In 2016, I hit my first million-dollar year in my business...yet, I was totally miserable. At the time, I was focused on numbers and status, rather than what would actually bring me real happiness and create an impact in the world. That all changed. This podcast is about my journey to meaning and fulfillment and how you can bring it to your own life - today and every day.

    How to Recover From Burnout and Infuse More Joy and Creativity Back Into Your Work, with Sunny Lenarduzzi

    How to Recover From Burnout and Infuse More Joy and Creativity Back Into Your Work, with Sunny Lenarduzzi

    Hey Everyday World Changers! If you have ever felt burnt out from work or life, and you’re unsure of how to get your creativity and joy back, then this episode is for you. Today I’m chatting with YouTube sensation Sunny Lenarduzzi, who built a massively successful 7-figure business and an audience of hundreds of thousands of people.
    As you’ll hear, what a lot of people don’t tell you about success, and what we’re digging deep in today, is that achieving some kind of success in any area of life can lead to more pressure, more anxiety and a whole lot of fear. What happens when you combine all of these things together? It can lead to burnout and a total lack of creativity, and in Sunny’s case, an anxiety attack that put her in the hospital.
    If something you once loved doing now feels like a chore and you’re struggling to get your mojo back, then you’ll want to hear what Sunny has to say in this episode. She is extremely open about her struggles and triumphs, and you will enjoy the fun, free flowing conversation that we have about success, burnout and what it really takes to create a purpose-driven and joyful life. I especially love the activity that Sunny shares with us at the very end of the episode, which I know will help you feel even more fulfilled and proud of yourself for the work that you do every single day.
    If this episode resonated with you, it would make my day if you could take a screenshot of you listening on your device. Post it on your Instagram feed or stories, and tag me, @melyssa_griffin, and let me know how helped you. Knowing that people like you are listening to this podcast is honestly what keeps this show going!

    The Secret to Discovering Which Patterns You’re Creating That are Keeping You From Your Highest Self, with Leesa Renee Hall

    The Secret to Discovering Which Patterns You’re Creating That are Keeping You From Your Highest Self, with Leesa Renee Hall

    Hey Everyday World Changers! Today’s guest, Leesa Renee Hall, is quite literally one of my favorite people. She’s the kind of woman who is unapologetically herself and says what’s on her mind and her heart, even if she knows that some people may get rubbed in the wrong way. As a recovering “nice girl” myself, this is something that I’ve been working on bringing into my life more too, and I’m just so inspired by how Leesa shows up in the world.
    We dig really deep here, and in this conversation we talk about a unique writing practice that Leesa teaches and says is one of the best things she’s ever done for developing more self-awareness, discovering who she truly is deep down and embodying more of herself in everything she does. She knows a thing or two about writing and vulnerability, because she is the author of 7 (almost 8!) books, and more recently, has turned her attention to writing about the intersection of race, spirituality and leadership.
    In this discussion she’ll help you dissect your own identity in a really meaningful way, so that you can truly see who it is you’re being in order to become who you’re really meant to be.

    How Meditation and Mindfulness Can Help You Add More REAL Love and Happiness to Your Life, with Sharon Salzberg

    How Meditation and Mindfulness Can Help You Add More REAL Love and Happiness to Your Life, with Sharon Salzberg

    When I started learning about meditation a couple of years ago, today’s guest was a name I kept hearing over, and over, and over again. Sharon Salzberg is one of the most prominent figures in the field on meditation and a world-renowned teacher, as well as a New York Times bestselling author with 10 books. Sharon has played a crucial role in bringing mediation and mindfulness practices to the West and into mainstream culture since 1974. My favorite thing about Sharon is her focus on love, and how meditation can help us love more deeply and more often for both ourselves and everyone else in our lives.
    In this interview we talk about Sharon’s traumatic past, which led her to look for tools to help her heal and eventually led her to mediation. We also talk about what mindfulness even is and why most people who think they’re bad at mediation are wrong. Of course, she shares how to do it the right way and if you stick around until the end of this episode, you’ll even get to hear Sharon lead us in an exclusive loving-kindness meditation. This will add more peace, joy and love to your day – in a matter of just minutes.
    If this episode resonated with you, it would make my day if you could take a screenshot of you listening on your device.
