    #1228 - What We Get Confused About Judgment

    #1228 - What We Get Confused About Judgment

     In today’s episode, hosts Kevin Palmieri and Alan Lazaros talk about the fear of judgment. Everyone is afraid of judgment at different levels in different situations. The advice to not care about other people's opinions is not simple. It does not have a switch you can turn off. You can care about other people's opinions, but do not let them control you.

    Additionally, this fear of judgment stems from thinking that you should be perfect. Well, you're not, and that's okay. To some degree, judgment helps us grow. Kevin and Alan share some examples of being judged and their takeaways from those situations.

    #1227 - The Downsides And Upsides Of Discipline

    #1227 - The Downsides And Upsides Of Discipline

    It takes discipline to keep habits and achieve a goal. Discipline can mean missing out on the fun. It is also associated with some level of pain. In today’s episode, hosts Kevin Palmieri and Alan Lazaros talk about discipline and its effect on your trajectory to success. They discuss when discipline reaches a level that makes you sick of it. The opposite is also possible, in that you can miss discipline when you are not growing or seeing progress. They also talk about the correlation between discipline and fulfillment. Discipline can be seen behind the scenes of your life's success reel.

    #1226 - Growing Pains...

    #1226 - Growing Pains...

    When we talk about personal growth, we refer to expansion, blossoming, and transformation. Transformation can be challenging because it requires significant changes in our behaviors, attitudes, values, relationships, and self-image. It’s not a stretch to say that personal growth is hard. Today hosts Kevin Palmieri and Alan Lazaros talk about one thing that comes with personal growth: growing pains. They also share their growing pains, such as the pressure they are under as they continue in their personal and entrepreneurial journey. In the same way, physical growth causes growing pains in childhood; personal development can cause psychological and emotional discomfort in adulthood. Even if we sometimes try to avoid it, emotional and psychological distress is a personal development necessity.

    #1223 - 1 Way That Success Can Sabotage You

    When you have reached your goal and claimed success, you have to work even harder to keep it. In this episode, hosts Kevin Palmieri and Alan Lazaros talk about how keeping success means you have to remember the fundamentals. When you stop doing what you did to get there, you can expect some failure. The work does not come full stop when achieving success. Success needs maintenance. It means you can grind less, but you can't stop, or you will lose your momentum and find yourself struggling again.
