    Dive into an enlightening conversation with David Henzel and Eduard Brink on this episode of the Love Not Fear podcast, where they delve into the heart of new year's resolutions - their creation, their challenges, and what it truly takes to stick to them through the year. Broadcasting live from Eduard's office, this episode offers a rare glimpse into the personal and profound journey of setting and sticking to goals. 

    They explore the curious case of resolutions - why we make them, where we stumble, and how a select few manage to cross the finish line.

    "Fear is a warning sign, but it's important to take action and become solution-oriented rather than staying in a state of fear." - David Henzel

    Creating an environment that supports positive habits is crucial for maintaining them. Making habits easy and removing triggers that lead to negative behaviors can increase the chances of success.Reflecting on past mistakes and learning from them is essential for personal growth.

    Ep. 23 The illusion of comfort: Why stagnation isn't bliss

    Ep. 23 The illusion of comfort: Why stagnation isn't bliss

    Have you ever considered that your comfort zone might be holding you back? David and Eduard challenge this notion head-on, exploring why comfort often leads to stagnation and how embracing discomfort can unlock new levels of self-discovery. They share practical advice, from reimagining daily routines to tackling fears headfirst.

    This episode isn't just about pushing boundaries but about understanding them. Why do we cling to comfort, and how can stepping into the unknown lead to unimaginable growth? Whether it's about transforming body and mind through exercise or the subtle art of negotiation as a life skill.

    Join us on this journey of self-discovery, where we learn to balance the scales between comfort and growth, and understand how fear often masks itself as comfort. Get ready to redefine your comfort zone!

    "Comfort can be a prison if there is no growth or uncertainty." Eduard Brink

    In Today’s Episode:
    Leaving comfort is the journey of growth. By stepping out of one's comfort zone, individuals can experience personal growth and achieve their desired goals.Comfort can become a stagnant situation if there is no growth or uncertainty. It is important to embrace uncertainty and seek significant growth to avoid feeling trapped in a comfort zone.Fear often drives individuals to avoid risks and hinder significant growth. Overcoming fear and exposing oneself to new experiences can lead to personal development and a more fulfilling life.Redefining comfort as a dynamic process of continuous growth and self-discovery can lead to deeper satisfaction and success. It is important to collect skills, experiences, and develop a growth mindset to navigate future challenges.Taking small steps outside of one's comfort zone, such as trying new activities or engaging with strangers, can help build the confidence to tackle bigger challenges. Mental cleanup, such as completing tasks or canceling subscriptions, can also create space for growth and clarity.
    "If you do not grow, everything becomes stale. If a business is not growing anymore, it's dying. If a relationship is not growing anymore, it becomes stale and it dies. Also, if your status quo, even if it's nice, if it doesn't evolve, then it becomes, meh, normal. I think this is how we were built." David Henzel

    Step out of your comfort zone:
    🤍Find your discomfort zone. Identify an activity that makes you uncomfortable but is beneficial for your growth. It could be public speaking, starting a workout routine, or even engaging in a hobby you’ve been postponing.

    🤍Take action. Commit to this activity for the next week. If it's public speaking, join a Toastmasters session. If it’s fitness, start with a small workout routine. The key is to start and push through the discomfort.

    🤍 Share your experiences with us. How did you feel before, during, and after the activity? Did you notice any changes in your perspective or personal growth?

    🤍 At the end of the week, reflect on your experiences. How has stepping out of your comfort zone impacted you? Share your stories with us in the comments or email us. We’d love to hear and possibly feature your stories in our next episode!

    Ep. 22 Confronting inner barriers: The role of protector and projector in self-development

    Ep. 22 Confronting inner barriers: The role of protector and projector in self-development

    Ever felt like there's a part of you holding back, whispering cautions and fears into your ear? That's the Protector, the voice that aims to keep us safe but often at the cost of our full potential. Contrastingly, the Projector represents our bolder, more outspoken self, pushing us to expand our comfort zones and embrace the unknown.

    In this riveting episode of the Love Not Fear podcast, join hosts David Henzel and Eduard Brink as they delve into the compelling concept of the 'Protector' versus 'Projector' within us all. Through their engaging discussion, David and Eduard explore how we can identify and balance these inner voices to transform our lives. They bring in fascinating insights from SpeakerLab's, and even touch upon the power of alter egos to demonstrate how adopting a new persona can empower us to overcome deep-rooted fears.

    But it's not just about creating a new self. As David shares from his personal journey and the inspiring lessons from the book, "The Alter Ego Effect," it's about integrating these aspects to be a more authentic, fearless version of ourselves. Eduard brings the conversation full circle by discussing how we can practically apply these concepts in everyday situations, from public speaking to personal relationships.

    This episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to break free from the shackles of fear and self-doubt. So, tune in, as we embark on this thought-provoking journey from the confines of the Protector to the liberating realm of the Projector. Where do you stand in this inner debate? Let's find out together in this episode of Love Not Fear.

    "The new you is the old alter ego." Eduard Brink

    In Today’s Episode:
    The protector is the voice of fear that keeps us in our comfort zone, while the projector is the voice of boldness and expansion.Adopting a projector alter ego can help us overcome fear and step outside of our comfort zones.Affirmations can be a powerful tool to calm the protector and shift our mindset from fear to love.Surrounding ourselves with the right people who push boundaries and inspire us can help us overcome our own fears and limitations.Prioritizing tasks and using time blocking techniques can help us manage our time effectively and accomplish our goals.
    "Projector reminds me that everything you want is on the other side of fear." David Henzel

    Are you ready to transform the way you approach your fears and unleash your true potential?
