    Ep 75 | From Welfare to Millionaire: The 3 Biggest Tips with Sandy Forster

    Ep 75 | From Welfare to Millionaire: The 3 Biggest Tips with Sandy Forster

    Sandy Forster is the money mindset mentor for women worldwide who are ready to experience more abundance and freedom in their life. Sandy went from welfare to millionaire, been featured in Oprah’s Aussie Secret, and loves inspiring and empowering women to break through their blocks, manifest more money, and create a life they’re truly passionate about.

    Sandy went from having over $100,000 in debt to creating an income of $150,000 the next year. And now she is a multi-millionaire and she didn’t graduate high school. Our relationship with ourselves is the key to wealth and abundance.  However, this isn’t the path most of us follow. We think we have to work like crazy just to get ahead. But it actually starts with going within ourselves and changing our internal blueprint to become co-creators of our lives. It starts with taking on the identity, experiences, and opportunities right now that will bring you more of what you want to accomplish and achieve. It started with the inside of ourselves first. Sandy walks us through what it truly means to become an active participant in designing a life of great success and fulfillment. 

    What’s in the episode: 
    Why learning and understanding the Law of Attraction, quantum physics, and neuroscience are important in achieving true abundance in life;
    Understand why you should take action as you do the mindset work when walking the path towards change
    Discover how you can shift from welfare to millionaire through tips and insights based on science and a millionaire’s experience.
    How to align your body, mind, and spirit to achieve and succeed in your goals.
    Powerful daily practices to embody your abundance and success.

    “You can’t just think and visualize your goals. You have to embody and take action.”  Sandy Forster

    Ep 74 | How to Stay Positive in the Face of Adversity with Angie Carlson

    Ep 74 | How to Stay Positive in the Face of Adversity with Angie Carlson

    Wow! My interview with my 1992 high school classmate, Angie Carlson, was heartwarming, inspiring, and thought-provoking. Shortly after giving birth to her son, Angie was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) 30 years ago. This disease has left her using a walker, sometimes a wheelchair, and the smallest of tasks takes a monumental effort.  

     

    It’s easy to look at Angie’s everyday life and the obstacles she deals with, but she chooses to see her life differently. While she doesn’t deny the extreme fatigue, her limitations, or the hardness of it all, she maintains that she is happy in her life because she CHOOSES to be. She describes her highs, lows, and personal triumphs. 

    What’s in the episode: 
    Why we must ask ourselves, “How do we want to feel?”
    Understanding how our thoughts create our feelings.
    Embracing what is and not resisting.
    Making conscious decisions that support how we want to live our lives.
    Advice on how to see things from a different perspective?  
    Choosing abundance, joy, and happiness in the midst of hardness.

    “I feel like there is no other choice. That's the only choice I choose because I don’t want to be unhappy.” Angie Carlson

    Ep 73 | The Impact of Trauma and How It Affects Our Lives

    Ep 73 | The Impact of Trauma and How It Affects Our Lives

    In this interview, I talk with Dr. Melissa Hankins, a 17-year Harvard-trained psychiatrist and certified executive coach. We had a very open conversation about what trauma is, how it affects our lives, and what we can do to heal ourselves. 

    We have all experienced some form of trauma, and many times that trauma plays out in our adult lives. It might affect how we react to our spouse, how we parent our children, and how we navigate our work lives. As Dr. Hankins explained, trauma can affect us in big ways, such as anger, violence, or yelling, but also in not so obvious ways, such as perfectionism, workaholism, and lack of boundaries. Many times it’s the root of our very deep wounds, but we can work to heal ourselves and become better for ourselves. 

    What’s in the episode: 
    What is trauma, and how does it affect our lives?
    The difference between Big T and Little T trauma.
    What is a trauma response, and why would someone have one? 
    What is the key to reshaping our lives?
    How can we approach trauma, understand its effect, and move beyond to heal?

     

    “Even though we are not responsible for the traumas that happened to us as children, as adults, we are responsible for healing them.” Dr. Melissa Hankins

    Ep 72 | Boundary Setting: Dealing with Guilt and Conflict with Krista Resnick

    Ep 72 | Boundary Setting: Dealing with Guilt and Conflict with Krista Resnick

    When we are uncomfortable setting boundaries, it's easy to fall into patterns like people-pleasing to make sure everyone else is happy.  However, this becomes the breeding ground for resentment and anger in our lives.

    Many of us suffer from our people-pleasing ways. We do it for several reasons: To be accepted and belong, to receive love, and to find validations. We worry that people may not like us, creating a life of self-abandon and resentment.

    In this episode, Kim speaks to Krista Resnick about creating boundaries to protect our space and our relationships. It’s great to make other people happy, but it’s more important to please ourselves first by making self-honoring choices.

    Here are the things to expect in the episode:

    Are you for yourself, or are you against yourself?
    Establishing boundaries and aligning with your purpose
    Why self-compassion and self-care is essential to your success
    Choosing kindness over judgment
    And much more!

    What’s in the episode: 
    How do you know when to set a boundary?
    What fears stop people from setting boundaries?
    How to lean into discomfort.
    Krista’s top 2 tricks for starting to set boundaries in your life. 
    How to quit abandoning yourself for the sake of pleasing others so you can be free.

    “Too many times we self-abandon  for the sake of pleasing others?”  Krista Resnick

    Ep 71| The Upper Limit Problem: What’s holding you back from more of Everything!

    Ep 71| The Upper Limit Problem: What’s holding you back from more of Everything!

    Gay Hendricks wrote this amazing book called “The Big Leap”. In it, he explains that as humans we all have what he calls an “Upper Limit Problem.”


    Basically, we have an internal thermostat in our body that says, “I have limited tolerance, for feeling good in my life, I have limited tolerance for how much happiness, I am willing to let myself feel how much love, I'm willing to let myself feel how much success, I'm willing to let myself feel.”  Because of our Upper Limit Problem,  when things are going good for us, we will self sabotage our ability to all the goodness we want to feel in our life. 


    He explained that have limited tolerance for allowing our life to go well, for a period of time. And when we hit that internal thermostat of being able to feel good or feel success, we do something that stops our positive forward trajectory.  The good news….we can change our internal thermostats and reset them to higher levels of success. 


    What’s in the episode: 
    What is the Upper Limited Problem and how does it show up in our lives?

    The ways we self-sabotage and why do we do it. 

    The four zones of work identified by Gay Hendricks

    The zone of incompetence: In this zone, you are engaging in something you are simply not good at. This is me trying to dance in the ballet.

    The zone of competence: You can get the job done, but no better than the next person.

    The zone of excellence: In this zone, you are doing something you are very, very good at compared to most other people.

    The zone of genius: When you’re in your genius zone, are in what author Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi calls “flow.” You’re taking advantage of your natural talents and doing what you earnestly enjoy. You have what could almost be called an “unfair advantage” over your competition.


     


    “Our internal thermostat setting determines how much love success, creativity, happiness, well-being we allow in our life.”  Kim Strobel

    Ep 70| Radical Acceptance: The Secret to a Happy Life

    Ep 70| Radical Acceptance: The Secret to a Happy Life

    Kim reflects on a lesson she took to heart this past year, and she reflected on year 48 of her life and what is taught her, how she grew, and the work she’s done on herself.  She worked on Radical Acceptance, which means that she is working on releasing bitterness and resentment over things she couldn’t and can’t control. 


    It wasn’t easy work, but once she quit resisting the way certain things or people were in her life, she experienced a whole new level of peace and freedom. And because she did this work on herself this last year, she has experienced new levels of abundance, happiness, peace, and wellbeing.


    What’s in the episode: 
    What is radical acceptance and why does it work?

    How does practicing acceptance free us from the binds that keep us in bitterness?

    How can we accept ourselves and our situations while also wanting to change in positive ways?

    What gets in the way of our ability to accept and how to break free.

    Where our power lies and how to step into it. 







    “I've discovered is that I'm a lot happier and more at peace when I accept people or circumstances or situations as they are rather than wishing it was different.”  Kim Strobel
