    Connecting to the Life Changing Power Within You

    Connecting to the Life Changing Power Within You

    Listen to episode 595 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: Connecting to the Life Changing Power Within You. Edited and adapted from You Can, But Will You? By Orison Swett Marden.
    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Emerson says that we are weak when we look for help outside of ourselves; that it is only as we throw ourselves unhesitatingly on our thoughts that we instantly right ourselves, stand erect and work miracles. In other words, you will never do the biggest thing possible to you while you rely on outside help, upon others to boost you, to give you capital, or to start your business. It is only when, figuratively speaking, you throw everything else overboard and dive right into the great within of yourself that you find the spring of success, the achievement force, the power which does things in a big way.

    Self-Respect for a Life of Happiness

    Self-Respect for a Life of Happiness

    Listen to episode 594 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: Self-Respect for a Life of Happiness. Edited and adapted from You Can, But Will You? By Orison Swett Marden.
    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: At the very outset of your professional life, you can make no better resolution than that, whatever happens, you will stand well with yourself, that you will never forfeit your self-respect, never besmirch your honor by perverting your divine nature to do mean, low, dishonorable things. If you firmly resolve that you will always have the good opinion of at least one person in the world (yourself), no one, no conditions or circumstances, can cheat you out of an honorable career, an honorable life.

    Avoiding Detours on Your Road to Success

    Avoiding Detours on Your Road to Success

    Listen to episode 593 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: Avoiding Detours on Your Road to Success. Edited and adapted from C’mon Up by Franklin Fillmore Farrington.
    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Nobody who drives a car enjoys seeing the sign “Detour” — for it means the long and hard way. For some reason, the straight, smooth road has been closed, and we are asked to go out of our way and endure the consequences.
    The person who lives an overly emotional life is constantly making detours, going the hard, difficult, “round about” way. The people who end the day with the expression, “I am so weary,” are generally emotional people. They do no great work but allow their energy to leak away in needless emotions.

    The Power of Letting Go | Live NOW

    The Power of Letting Go | Live NOW

    Listen to episode 592 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: The Power of Letting Go | Live NOW. Edited and adapted from C’mon Up by Franklin Fillmore Farrington.
    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Worry is the bugaboo of life! You have not yet lived unless you have learned to neutralize the acid thoughts of fear and anxiety. Sooner or later, mental unrest manifests itself physically, mentally, and financially. The old saying, “When about to let go, hold on,” should be revised to say, “When about to hold on—let go.”
    One of the best ways of testing a person's physical and mental condition is to ascertain their ability to relax. When we tighten up mentally, we see an immediate effect on the body. High blood pressure, indigestion, headaches, the hardening of the arteries, and a score of other ailments are often a direct result of the desire to “hold on” instead of “letting go.”

    The Power of the Subconscious Mind | Life Changing Podcasts

    The Power of the Subconscious Mind | Life Changing Podcasts

    Listen to episode 591 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: The Power of the Subconscious Mind. Edited and adapted from Success Psychology by Coleman Hall Bush.
    Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: The conscious mind has the important duty of being the thinker for the other departments of our mind. It acts as the adviser and master suggestor for our sub-conscious mind, and the sub-conscious ALWAYS receives these suggestions from our conscious mind, whether we know it or not, and it has a follow-up-system of working them into realization that many people are blind to. In other words, we may get a “rotten patch of hard luck” today and wonder why, but THE ORDER was placed through our Conscious Mind, maybe years ago.
    The conscious mind is the leader. It takes the leadership and initiative in all forms of development. When the conscious mind gives its order to the sub-conscious, that order is taken up and acted upon by the sub-conscious department of our mind, while we sleep, possibly, but it is taken up and acted upon A L W A Y S.

Narration

I have been listening for three years & loved this podcast. Then suddenly it changed — The lea became loud commercials & The wonderful narrator became computerized? What happened?!

Narration is awful

The messages are great. The content is so important. But the narration is horrible.

inspiredpat ,

Confused

The podcast has good topics. However I feel like the host is drunk every episode. He is sluggish and slurring his words.
