    Ep.157 ~ Do You Rely On Luck Or Fate? ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous—Podcast

    This is our last podcast episode for the foreseeable future, but all past episodes will remain online for you to access whenever you like.



    Now to a question ~ How do you respond to a compliment or some form of success?


    So often people say their success is a matter of “luck” or “fate.” They’ll say it in response to a compliment or the successful outcome of a job interview or first date.


    Why would people hand off these important issues and positive results to “luck” or “fate” rather than their own decisions, their own behavior, their own intelligence, their own excellence?


    This isn’t just about receiving. It’s about owning responsibility for your choices, your actions, your excellence, and success in whatever ways it manifests. So we ask, how can you feel rightfully fabulous, when you’re not owning who you actually are?

    Ep.156 ~ How Well Do You Handle Disappointment? ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous—Podcast

    How do you respond when  ...


    It’s a certainty, a fact that there will always be disappointment in life. So the most important question is – how do you respond when you experience those shocks, hurts, and sometimes soul-draining, devastating events?


    Do you collapse, feel like a victim, decide it’s too much to bear? Or do you experience the frustration, the pain and acknowledge that it is real, without covering it over with false humor or developing a stiff upper lip.


    Because how you respond to being disappointed is either a recipe for gratitude and a life well-lived, or a deeply contaminated recipe for bitterness and the chronic experience of defeat — no matter the actual realities of your current life.

    Ep.154 ~ Speaking Up In Your Own Defense ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous-Podcast

    Do you even dare do it?


    When you eat out, do you feel comfortable returning dishes or drinks that weren’t prepared like you ordered? Do you even dare do it?


    We’ve talked with so many people who told us they were horrified at the thought of sending back a well-done hamburger when they ordered rare; or limp bacon when they ordered super crispy; or a malt that’s delivered ahead of your meal when you specified that you wanted it with your meal and not before.


    Even when we point out that they are paying for something they specified to be made a certain way, they shake their head and are clearly unable to be in charge of themselves in this regard. So today we are digging into the blocks that prevent speaking up in your own defense!

    Ep.152 ~ Being Nice Versus Honest ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous-Podcast

    Ep.152 ~ Being Nice Versus Honest ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous-Podcast

    Are you more comfortable being nice or being honest??


    How often do you feel you have to be “nice” rather than honest?  


    So often people short change the other person and themselves by reducing their feedback, whether at work or in their personal lives, to “being nice”, when they could provide valuable communication if they were simply, and respectfully honest.


    Why would you avoid telling the truth, in favor of being “nice”?


    Most people say it’s because they are afraid of hurting someone’s feelings. But think about it this way — as the Dean of my graduate school once said, “Nice folks leave a wake of destruction in their path.”


    So make sure to listen as we unpack that bit of true wisdom!

Practical and works!

The difference between Jim&Judith and other career coaches is that they understand the psychological reason behind behaviors and therefore can eradicate the root problems. I had the opportunity to talk to them a few times while working at a tech company. They never talked about any high level principle or abstract concepts, but only gave practical suggestions which no one mentioned to me before. And it worked.
