Why You Should Take More Risks
In life it's easy to be risk averse, especially if you're an empath. We fear rejection, failure, and loss so much that we often live in a state of analysis-paralysis, and never actually take a step forward to achieving our dreams or bigger goals in life. If you're happy and you know it, then going with the status quo is totally okay - you don't always have to be reaching for that brass ring. However, if there are any areas of life in which you feel stagnated, or you're not as happy as you think you could be, then it's time to start taking some risks!

Crossing Over: Improving Life Through Death
In life we often don't take time to smell the roses until something negative happens that forces us to actually stop and smell those roses. After the passing of my aunt today I decided it was time to become more introspective and see what lessons I learned from her life and her passing.
Law of Attraction Stories That Will Blow Your Mind
The law of attraction states that thoughts become things. What you think about, you bring about in your life. Once you recognize this, you can take control of your life and attract almost anything you desire. Sounds too easy, doesn't it? Today we talk about what the Law of Attraction is, and how it was made popular by the wildly best selling book and DVD, "The Secret", by Rhonda Byrne. I'll share two incredible stories of my own which are so amazing, the odds of these stories happening defy coincidence and very likely are less likely to happen than winning the Powerball lottery! Prepare to have your mind blown.

The 1% Solution
You can improve your life, achieve all of your goals and your dreams if you stop pushing so hard! Sounds counter-intuitive, doesn't it? To achieve your goals, try less? No of course not!! Put in the effort at 100%, but work on the 1%. By accomplishing a one percent change in your life every day, you'll experience 100% in only three months (give or take a few days). The one percent solution is broken down into two parts: 1. Taking baby steps to achieve a goal, 1% at a time, and 2. Changing your life 1% a day to live your best life. Listen to today's podcast for examples and how to keep changing your life for the better.
When we try to achieve a goal, we often go as hard and fast as we can at the beginning, then lose hope when the results don't show up overnight. Instead, focus on accomplishing one percent of your goal each day. That way you gradually build upon the previous day's accomplishment and develop a routine and since you're actually accomplishing something every day, you will be even more motivated to keep going.
The same goes for improving your life one percent at a time. Make a list of all of the things which are annoyances in your life, or you feel aren't a positive influence on your day in day out. Then, every day, make it a goal to eliminate just one single annoyance. You'll find every day, you'll be increasingly happy.

How To Be Assertive And Find Your Voice
Do you find it hard to be assertive in life? Perhaps when you need to speak up the most, you sit in silence, pissed off, only later to wonder why you didn't stand up for yourself when you had the chance. Especially for empaths, we are averse to conflict and avoid it at any cost, and therefore stay silent when we shouldn't. It might seem better to avoid standing up for yourself, but I've found that it is actually healthier to speak up. While I also used to afraid of conflict since the negative energy would affect me, over the years I've gradually found my voice and started speaking my mind much more. Not only did it NOT result in conflict, but instead, I found people who would otherwise be my adversaries, start to respect me, and apologize.
To become successful in life you are going to have to learn to build your confidence and one of the best building blocks means speaking up for yourself. Today's podcast is about finding your voice and speaking your mind. Instead of being insulted, and then going home to ruminate over why you didn't defend yourself, start becoming more reactive and fearless. It takes practice. Lots of practice! With a few small adjustments, and a baby steps however, you too can find your voice and become the person on the outside that you already are, on the inside. To become successful in life you are going to have to learn to build your confidence and one of the best building blocks means speaking up for yourself.
Living Life In Reverse
Have you ever witnessed the career or life of a friend, colleague, or stranger and wondered if you should be "trying harder", or "doing more" in life? Recently, I was thinking about some of my friends. The ones from undergrad, spent years in their government jobs and have climbed to the highest levels, from being trade commissioners, to ambassadors. The friends from MBA have stayed in banking and have become VPs, hedge fund managers, and climbed pretty high on the investment banking industry. Finally, my friends from law school have stayed at their jobs and become partners at fairly significant law firms. Although I feel like I've accomplished a lot, it made me wonder, whether I should have just stayed in one industry, and one job. The more I thought about it though, the more I know it correctly. Too often things like titles, look pretty on paper, but we overlook the years of stress, hard work, and unhappiness that goes into these job titles, which at the end of the day, don't mean a hell of a lot because they can be taken away from you.
Titles are nice, but what about your life? How many adventures have you been on? Are you waiting to retire to finally pursue your dream business or dream trip? Well here's some news for you: you may never retire. Pensions aren't what they were. Also, as you get older, you may not be able to do all of those exciting things that you can do when you're younger. Instead of waiting until the end of your life to start living, in today's podcast, we'll talk about living life in reverse - retire along the way, and fulfill your bucket list items today. You never know, tomorrow may never come.
