    83. Not just a new normal, but a BETTER normal

    83. Not just a new normal, but a BETTER normal

    My guest on the Peace & Possibilities Podcast this week is more interested in building your health and wellness as opposed to putting a band aid on it. 
    We all know that there are quick fixes to our problems.  When we take this approach, we may solve the problem, albeit temporarily.  But it doesn't have to be that way.
    We can think about a different phase or season of our life as not just a new normal, but a better normal. Doesn't that sound more appealing? 
    What if 2020 happened so that we could all have a BETTER normal?
    Wouldn't it be nice to build your health instead of fix your health? Wouldn't it feel better to concentrate on all the good things happening as opposed to what's not working? Wouldn’t it feel better to ask for guidance on what to do and where to go, and what your pain/problem is trying to teach you? Then after asking about it, you can begin to solve it from a curiosity mind-set as opposed to a problem that is making your life difficult. 

    Moyra Gorski wants us to consider that there's magic in our mess.  There's always a lesson.  We don't have to have it all figured out.  And luckily, she reminds us "as we grow, we find more gifts."

    I couldn't agree more.

    82. There are many ways to bring your gifts to the world

    There are many ways to bring your gifts to the world.
    Who hasn't needed to make a shift this last year?
    Evolving, being willing to change, is important no matter what is happening in the world or our lives. But never more so since the beginning of 2020.
    We're all learning now how important adjusting and changing is, no matter how long it takes to get there.
    When you're considering what you want to have in your life, it's important to think about what you want to bring to the world.
    My guest this week, Sharyn Galindo, had to do just that.  She had to shift her business and her purpose, to encompass the new world she (and we) faced.

    How did she do it?
    Discipline! She practiced these things: Resilience, mind/body breathing, gratitude She got back up! She asked herself (like a swiss army knife of tools and skills), which tool will I need today? She was open to the possibilities (hmm, that's a good topic for a book, don't you think?) She took her time Never-ending self-awareness She remembered, there are a lot of ways to bring your gifts to the world She had, and so should you, compassionate presence Finally, she remembered, mistakes are part of the journey!
    More about Sharyn here:
    Sharyn Galindo is the owner and founder of True North Wellness. She has been in the wellness industry since the early 1990s and to this day continues to expand her knowledge through trips across Asia and by studying modern and traditional wellness approaches.

She created True North Wellness to be accessible and empowering for all.

    81. That's not a living, that's a dying

    Do we have to have the same experiences to relate to people?

    I think not!
    Can you imagine being homeless as a young boy?
    My guest this week, Joe Rojas, didn't have to imagine it.  At 10 he was essentially homeless.  So what did he do?
    At 11 he went to work And eventually worked in the military and at the DOD And now has is own successful business You're probably thinking, that can't be! I know I was.
    How did he do this?

    It was his resilience, his relentlessness and his "I'm gonna do this" attitude. 
    Among other things, he did the following:
    Told himself, "I am not willing to give up!" Counted his wins! He was engaged in the journey. He was gutsy; he learned to push back. He learned how to say no, which avoided many headaches. He stopped missing out on happiness and joy. He learned not to be too scattered; instead he focused.  
    You're going to be so moved and inspired after this conversation.  You won't forget it.

    80. Even if you give up a dream, if it's your destiny, it won't leave you

    80. Even if you give up a dream, if it's your destiny, it won't leave you

    Even if you give up a dream, if it's your destiny, it won't leave you.

    This is how you know.  Your dream won't leave you.  It remains. Always.

    My guest this week is the amazing author Barbara Huson, who has written several books about wealth and personal development.  She's on a mission to help each of us feel confident and have consistent well being about wealth.  They are not exclusive.
    She reminds us of the following:
    Even if you give up a dream, if it's your destiny, it won't leave. Look for signs and ask for signs. The only thing that stands between you and success, is fear. If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you. Anything you want to achieve always lies just outside your comfort zone. She's determined to help you take the charge out of the word "wealth".
    Let's all be well-thy, now! It will serve you and more importantly, the world!

    78. You have to be your own hero

    You'll love listening to my guest this week.  Heidi Dawson, of The Wildly Successful Lifestyle Podcast, has always told her herself: if something's not working for me, I'm not staying in it. I love this! 
    Who is she?  Just an awesome person who is making the world a better place a little bit more everyday, by sharing stories from health and wellness experts along with the mindset shifts she uses to live a healthy, happy lifestyle.
    Just a few tips from Heidi (listen in for more):
    Ask yourself: What do I really want to feel? (This is key) Make joy and fun a priority Make yourself more qualified for the next thing Make yourself better, always Take action, move forward Enjoy the journey (otherwise you'll miss the vacation) Remind yourself: maybe that interaction was for them  
    Finally, I'm sure Heidi would agree with this quote from Marianne Williamson: "We are brought together by an intentional universe for one reason only: the enlightenment of all concerned. Whether our connection is through work or family, a casual encounter or a lifelong involvement, the purpose of every relationship is the healing of the world."
    You'll be so glad you encountered Heidi!
