Ralph Marston and Kimberly Cain explore strategies for creating and nurturing valuable, meaningful connections with the people around you and with your own highest possibilities.
Knowing and Understanding Yourself
The world will suggest for you plenty of things to pursue. The trouble is, those things can’t bring fulfillment.
Do you really want what you think you want? Or are you just following a borrowed dream? When following a dream that isn’t even yours, there’s no passion to propel you forward. Even when you do somehow manage to reach it, the prize will be empty if you never really wanted it.
You can stop listening to what the world says you should want and start listening to who you are. You can allow yourself discover what truly brings you joy. You can let yourself live, not to impress others, but to follow the values you hold most dear.
Real success comes when you can be who you are. Listen as Ralph offers some suggestions on how to do this.
Words of Encouragement
The more difficult the situation, the more reasons you have to move beyond it.
What if you could give yourself permission to feel great about right now? What if you could have the go-ahead to bubble with enthusiasm for what you can do with this day?
Imagine being able to look forward to the future with eager anticipation. Think of how it would feel to radiate true confidence as you work to transform the challenges into achievements.
No matter what your situation, it’s certainly not going to hurt to have a little bit of encouragement as you deal with it. That’s what this week’s podcast is all about. Listen as Ralph goes through a whole list of compelling reasons to be encouraged, no matter what you may be going through.
Living Each Day With Serenity
Serenity gives a powerful way to experience life.
In serenity, there is strength. Staying calm, when confusion and chaos surround you, keeps you firmly in control.
With serenity, you can respond with much more power and positive focus. By staying calm, instead of letting events scatter your attention in a thousand different directions, you remain in control.
When you can quiet your mind, suddenly the distractions which seemed so overwhelming feel like they’re a million miles away. As you sink deeper into the awareness of being here in the present moment, you leave behind the worries, the fears and the doubts.
Join Ralph for a journey to a powerful, refreshing, energizing place. And experience the value that serenity can bring.
Activating Your Courage
Courage is already within you, and always yours to choose.
Challenges are great, risks are many, and uncertainties abound. You’re not sure what will happen today, or tomorrow. Nonetheless, you can move ahead with courage.
Courage is knowing that you can enact a positive response to whatever happens. Courage is being realistic about your prospects, listening to your fears, and taking well-informed action.
Join Ralph for an exploration of courage. Feel your purpose, choose your courage, and transform the challenges into achievements.
Moving Forward With Persistence
No matter where you start, with enough persistence you can reach the goal.
Every success story is a story of persistence. Persistence is not particularly glamorous or exciting. Yet the results of persistence can be truly amazing.
Persistence is not always easy, though it is always accessible. Once you’ve made the effort you can continue making the effort, and that’s what will make the difference.
It’s completely understandable that you will, from time to time, feel like giving up. It’s also absolutely possible to let go of that dejected feeling, and to replace it with an even stronger desire to persist no matter what.
Listen as Ralph makes a compelling case to persist in your efforts no matter what.
Living a Joyful Life
Joy gives an energy to life in a way that nothing else can match.
Nothing feels quite like pure, authentic joy. The very fact that joy feels so good, so right, is an indication that it’s something to be treasured, enlarged, and shared.
The more joy you have in your own life in your own life, the more you have to give others. By experiencing joy, you let the true person inside come to life. That person is overflowing with love, abundance and creativity, all of which will add immensely to your life and the lives of those around you.
Listen in as Ralph considers the place for joy in life and celebrates the immense value that flows from living with joy.
