    How To Boost Your Patience, Energy and Progress So You Can Do the Best Work Of Your Career

    It happens to the best of us. We find ourselves impatient and frustrated that we’re not accomplishing or creating fast enough. Maybe it’s building your business, getting a colleague to accept your recommendation, or getting recognized for how hard you’re working. Release all of this noise because it’s holding you back.
    Today, I want to introduce you to a  game-changing tool that will help you boost your patience and energy for whatever masterpiece you currently are or want to build.  This tool has been responsible for helping many left-brain dominant, high-performers get out of their own way and onto building the best work of their career.  It’s also a great reminder that getting back to basics helps you gain the clarity and passion to ultimately succeed at the mission behind  your work.   
    Our mission is to help you become unstoppable so you can do the best work of your career while you enjoy more inner peace and personal freedom. Be sure to sign up for my emails that announce the Playing Full Out Podcast as they share a lot more than is in these podcasts. You can sign up here at rita@ritahyland.com.

    Unleashing the Power Of Fun (plus my 4-Part Sensational Summer Blueprint)

    Unleashing the Power Of Fun (plus my 4-Part Sensational Summer Blueprint)

    When was the last time you did something just because it delighted you? When was the last time you broke from your routine and were fully immersed in an activity for pure enjoyment? Or when you added a little absurdity into your day simply because it made you feel alive? 
    Doing something for the fun of it not because it serves some greater purpose may seem like a luxury to you today, but research confirms something quite different. Far from being frivolous, self-indulgent, irresponsible, or even selfish, having fun is actually ESSENTIAL to a life well played.
    Unfortunately, in our uber goal-focused lives, as much as we crave activity for pure fun, we have a hard time giving ourselves permission to embrace it. 
    Today, I’m sharing with you a personal moment that reminded me not only that it was time to get my play on again regardless of what I had accomplished, but some of the science behind unleashing the power of fun in our lives. I’m also sharing with you my go-to 4-part blueprint (and challenge!). It’s a ritual I do at this time every year.  When you do it you’ll ensure you don’t get to the end of summer and realize you  missed out or denied yourself the fun that you need and silently crave.
    If this episode is helpful for you, please share it with someone else who would benefit from hearing it. Also, be sure to leave a review on Apple Podcasts letting me know what you enjoy about Playing Full Out and any questions you have. We may just use the subject for a future episode!

    Embracing Fear Without Being Flattened By It

    Embracing Fear Without Being Flattened By It

    Have you ever hesitated to make a key call in your business? Go for a heavier weight at the gym? Say “yes” to a great invitation? Or move forward in your most important work? Or big idea?
    Today’s episode is perfect for you if you’ve noticed your attachment to certainty or getting it right may be slowing you down. Oftentimes, attempts to avoid situations that might be uncertain are unconsciously disguised as being busy, over preparing, or refining our work. 
    Ultimately, it becomes impossible to innovate, share controversial ideas or effect the change we want.   The truth is fear can hold you back and limit you in every area of your life without you even knowing it.
    That’s why today I’m sharing with you the one lesson I wish I knew years ago: no matter how accomplished, how much older, or how recognized you become, fear is going to accompany you. And the worst problem we can actually face is not knowing that it’s fear that’s holding us back.
    Join me in this episode as I share the things I feared most, how surrendering to that fear led to my greatest experiences, and my favorite approach to acknowledge your fear and use your past to inform how to create your most satisfying and rewarding present and future.  
    The good news: You can change your relationship to fear and allow this to be the end of avoiding situations that might bring it.  I am glad you’re here.

    A 10-Minute Challenge To Uncover What You Stand For

    A 10-Minute Challenge To Uncover What You Stand For

    If you’re looking to bring more energy, freedom and meaning to your work and days, uncovering what you stand for may be what you need.
    Do you ever have a day, when despite accomplishing a lot, you step back and question  is this meaningful? Or you wonder what is the reason for all the effort and energy that you expend daily? Do you wonder if what you are doing matters? If so, you are not alone. The pursuit of goals alone can be very unsatisfying. The extrinsic rewards of money, achievement and admiration do not fill us. 
    If you want to guarantee that your days reflect what is most important to you, that your work is contributing to something beyond yourself, or you’re simply looking to reinvigorate your team, this episode is for you. 
    There is quite literally no better formula for bringing forth the genuine brave warrior in you and others, than knowing what you stand for.  And in this episode I talk about a no-nonsense formula to uncover your stand, that thing that makes you courageous, how to distinguish it from a position, and what knowing your stand can do for your business and even your personal world. When you uncover your stand you will feel a surge of energy and freedom that many describe they’ve been missing over the past couple of years.
    Today I’m giving you the tools you need to get clear on what you stand for and how to use that knowledge to guide all that you do.

    Addressing the Real Root Cause Of Stress That Wreaks Havoc On Our Body, Work And Life

    Addressing the Real Root Cause Of Stress That Wreaks Havoc On Our Body, Work And Life

    If stress is a regular part of your business – you’re not alone. These techniques can help. 
    We live in a stress-filled world. Many accept stress as a regular part of their days. But over time, stress takes a major toll on our business, body and relationships. We aren’t built to constantly be in a state of fight or flight. Here’s the good news - we don’t have to be. You don’t have to start or end your day with debilitating feelings of stress as your norm. It’s no way to live, and it’s no way to lead. The first step is to realize that other people and situations are not the cause of your stress. Getting at the root-cause along with learning how to self-regulate when stress strikes is the key to more freedom, energy and peace than you’ve experienced before. In this episode, I share the techniques that will truly help you diminish the stress and the havoc it wreaks. Your personal and professional happiness and success relies on you understanding why your stress exists, not outlasting it.
    If this episode is helpful for you, please share it with someone else who would benefit from hearing it. Also, be sure to leave a review on Apple Podcasts letting me know what you enjoy about Playing Full Out and what you would like to hear in the future.

    Becoming a Jumpseat Leader with Peter Docker

    Becoming a Jumpseat Leader with Peter Docker

    When you are in crisis, do you immediately tighten your grip and take control of the situation? It’s very common for leaders to do just that. But what if I told you that we are called to do the opposite? What if, instead, you boldly loosen your grip and empower others to find a possible solution? It’s not always easy to relinquish control, but it is inevitable at work and in life. Our guest, Peter Docker, shares how to courageously hand over the reins, and empower others to step up and take action. Peter Docker teaches people how to navigate the challenge of leadership in any situation. His latest book, Leading from the Jumpseat, delivers the message that leadership is about lifting people up and giving them the space they need so that, when the time is right, they can take the lead.
    I hope you love this interview as much as I did and take away some strategies on how you can lead yourself and others better in any situation.  If you do, please share this interview with your colleagues and friends. Also, be sure to leave a review on Apple Podcasts letting me know what you enjoy about Playing Full Out and what you would like to hear in the future.
