    #83 - The Power of Reflection

    #83 - The Power of Reflection

    As the year comes to an end, this a great time to mindfully review the old year before rushing into the new one. The whole "New Year, New Me" mantra obviously doesn't work for everyone.
    Could taking time to quietly reflect back with gratitude be the missing key and one way we unintentionally sabotage our good intentions?
    Tune in and hear my 5's that will help with reviewing and previewing the New Year so that we transition into the new season by design and not by default.
    1. Reflect
    2. Rejoice
    3. Release
    4. Recharge
    5. Reset
    Listen in and then let me know your thoughts. I love hearing from you over at the blog comment section.
    Happy listening and happy, blessed 2019!

    #82 - Angeline Lawrence - Positioned For Power

    #82 - Angeline Lawrence - Positioned For Power

    It's safe to say many of us have experienced bullying in some way, shape or form. 

    It can be cyberbullying, workplace, family, school or peer pressure.
    Many people, children, teenagers, and women have a difficult time overcoming the devastating effects of bullying. Tragically, some victims of bullying turn and become bullies themselves!
    Workplace bullying, as defined by the Workplace Bullying Institute is, “the repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators.” It is abusive conduct, which is threatening, humiliating and intimidating, and includes work interference – sabotage – preventing work from being done or verbal abuse. 
    My guest initially tried to deal with workplace bullying by avoiding the individuals who targeted her. When she had issues with a co-worker, she retreated into her cubicle. However, when her work was sabotaged by misplacing reports and missed deadlines, she was forced to deal with the bullying directly. After all, her professional reputation was in jeopardy and she could not hide in her office hoping it would go away. 
    Tune in to hear how the plot twisted when Angeline dealt with the bullying and went on to become an agent of change. Today she is empowering Christian women to be positioned for power in the workplace. Equipping them with the tools and strategies that helped her heal and overcome the effects of workplace bullying.
     
    Whatever challenge you may be going through, it can change. When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.

    #81 - Are You Running?

    #81 - Are You Running?

    You and I each have a purpose in life. We each have a race to run, based on that unique purpose. And while they stay stick to your lane, on this episode you'll discover why when all of us finish strong, everyone wins!
    One dictionary defines Purpose as - The reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
    At some point in life, most people wonder what is the reason for their existence. Have you ever asked yourself that question?
    Now, while I don't have a one-size-fits-all solution for how someone can find their purpose, I believe having a vision that goes beyond you can help us answer that question. Because they say no man is an island,  purpose will always involve someone else, in one way or the other. 
    I also believe living a life of purpose is not a one-time event, but an ongoing process, that can change as we grow during the journey of life. No one can actually reveal your purpose to you except your creator. People can help you find what is already in your heart as a seed. And others can help you nurture it unto fruitfulness.
    Likewise, no one can live your purpose for you. Or do your press-ups for you. And just like runners in a race, everyone has their lane, and as you and I stick to our designated lanes, we can run with faith and patience until the day we reach the finishing line.
    But what matters in life is not just than winning for ourselves. What matters in life is helping others to win as well, even if it means slowing down sometimes. Today's short story (hadithi in Kiswahili) illustrates the significance of support each other, even as we run as individuals.
    Because we are connected to each other when all of us finish strong everybody wins!
    The conversation continues on my website www.DYSPodcast.com. Come on over there and share your thoughts about today's show.

    #80- 5 Wellness Tips To Manage Stress

    #80- 5 Wellness Tips To Manage Stress

    Flying can be fun. Until we experience frightening turbulences that make us grip the seat handles and whisper a prayer. As I often say, life is like a journey, and can we both agree it's not always clear blue skies and smooth sailing?
    But just like there are instructions of what to do in the event of danger on a flight, so too in life, there are things we can pro-actively do to be better prepared for the stressy turbulences of life. I don't know about you, but personally, I have never actually had to put on an oxygen mask on a flight. If it ever happens, it would be interesting to observe how many passengers stay calm and how many freaks out like some of us often tend to do in unexpected stressful situations. Paying attention to the flight attendant during the safety instructions could be a deciding factor between freaking out in panic and staying calm and helpful to others.
    But the truth its easy to tune out to the monotonous safety instructions because "we know all that already." Just like in real life. Yes, we "already know that" eating healthy, exercising, hydrating, a positive mindset among others are beneficial for our well-being. But do we do these things or do we ignore what we know is right only to discover just how unprepared we are to manage stress when that crisis does come? Not being the bearer of bad news here, but none of us is exempt from life's turbulences. 
    That's why wellness and self-care are not overrated when it comes to managing harmful stress. There are so many benefits, some of which I mentioned in a previous blog post. On this episode, you'll hear 5 simple tips that will boost your emotional, mental and physical well-being. Self-care is like putting on your oxygen mask first. This helps us be better prepared to handle the inevitable rough moments in life as well as help others around us.
    Tune in and discover how these five simple, but effective self-care tips can help manage stress and improve your well-being.

Inspirational! Helps keep me motivated :)

First of all, I'm a sucker for accents! But looking past how pleasant the host is to listen to, I subscribed after 5 minutes of listening.
One of the reasons I listen to podcasts is to keep myself motivated well working on things that I need to get done. This podcast is a great soundtrack to whatever I'm working on.
There's nothing better then a quick and concentrated dose of motivation juice. Keep it up! Simply put: I get more done when I listen regularly.
