    Letting Go with Acceptance and NO Judgement

    Letting Go with Acceptance and NO Judgement

    Darren and Jessica Salquist share aspects of forgiveness, acceptance, letting go, and no judgment.

    Jessica wrote,  

    "A time for reflection of all the imperfections,  No longer holding us back from our right to evolution, Letting go from all that we see,  No longer feelings of resentment for you and me, Forgiveness is a pathway for self-compassion and love, For us to have cracks for the light to enter from above."

    Seneca states, "It is not prudent to deny a pardon to any man, Without first examining if we stand not in need of it ourselves."

    What if acceptance was a pathway to forgiveness? What if we didn't judge ourselves and others so we can let go and continue to grow? What if we were empowered by letting go, acceptance, and no judgment?

    Stop drinking the poisonous resentment and judgment and forgive.

    ROMI: Return on My Investment

    ROMI: Return on My Investment

    Life Changers, Darren and Jessica Salquist talk about the return on what we invest in ourselves.

    Unknown Author: "If the plan doesn't work, change the plan not the goal." 

    There are many pathways to your goal/target. You don't always have to change the goal because it is the pathway / plan that may need to be changed.

    How are you investing in yourself emotionally and physically? What's working? What needs work? What is the plan?

    Plan, do check act / adjust.

    We continually check-in and reassess the pathway to our goal.

    How will you profit from your investment in self?

    The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat

    The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat

    Good day to you all. Jessica and Darren Salquist talk about victory and defeat. Does one come with the other? Can you have the thrill of victory without the agony of defeat? There is a relationship between them, and we see the good in both.

    Gandhi stated, "Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory." As far as defeat, Napoleon Hill stated, "When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that our plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more towards your coveted goal."

    Jessica and Darren break down these quotes, sharing the relationship between the two. Buddhism talks about changing the poison into medicine. Taking the not-so-good and making it into something that feeds our soul. Flipping our mindset to see the victory from the moments of defeat.

    If you have a topic you would like us to discuss more, share in a comment. We would love to hear from you. Be well.

    Jessica and Darren Salquist, Personal Trainer, Wellness Coaches, Life Changers and a Reflexologist. The goal of our podcasts is to bring a bit of cheer and good vibes to you all.

    Vocation is a strong feeling of suitability for life. What is your vocation? Purpose? Reason for living? Destiny? Marcus Aurelius says our vocation is to be a good person and we agree.

    Listen in while these two coaches share some stoic wisdom and what they practice each day to continue to be a good person. It is a daily practice. Some days are better than others. As long as this practice is our guiding light, we are making progress.
