    22: How to Cultivate Resilience and Grit

    22: How to Cultivate Resilience and Grit

    Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. It's essentially your mental toughness. Grit on the other hand, is a unique blend of passion and persistence. This week we're diving into resilience and grit. We'll be talking about how it plays out in your work teams, family and friendships. 
    5 Ways to Develop Grit and Resilience

    Be intentional in connecting with others who thrive in resilience. They will help you when you welcome them into your thought patterns.

    Reroute your negative thought patterns. Take the negativity captive when it approaches your mindset. Of course, easier said than done. Allowing a friend to transparently hear what you tell yourself is a great way to begin to identify healthy and unhealthy patterns.

    Change is constant. Allow yourself to embrace it.

    Catch your negative self-talk. It won't help you persevere if your negativity is your greatest enemy.

    Be compassionate to yourself. Grit and resilience is about growth. It's not overnight, rather it's a lifelong journey. Allow others on the journey to help you develop Grit and Resilience.

    21: Why Great Leaders Really Do Ask Great Questions

    21: Why Great Leaders Really Do Ask Great Questions

    There's no such thing as a stupid question, but there is an art to strategic, smart questions that drive connection, accelerate connectivity and advance your empathy across relationships.
    You might be blessed in your current position with excellent leadership that ignites inspiration, activates connection and reminds you to bring your best self to the table. For others, you may be experiencing anything but that kind of leadership.
    So rather than waiting for a great leader to show up to demonstrate to you what it looks like, I want to dive into this episode with you and get you narrowing down on what great questions really look like in your life.

    This week we talk about the unseen stories of 2020. We're diving in to touch on the homework that needs to be done in order to heal from whatever you had to "sit with" in 2020. This message encourages you to face "all the feels" and come out on the other end stronger. If you have something you need to cut out of your life from 2020 - let it go. If you need to equip yourself with the recommendations you received in 2020 - dive into them. Let this message speak truth and honesty to you, regardless of where you're at this season.

    19: Life is Distracting. Stay Committed to the Moment

    19: Life is Distracting. Stay Committed to the Moment

    Perspective is about seeing life from a particular viewpoint. When you're driving on the highway, more often than not, you'll see spots with binoculars or blue signs that say Viewpoint. There's a sign to indicate, pull off to the side so you can pause and enjoy the moment. We pull over, get out of the car, and say WOW - what a view. You might even say, let's take a moment to check out this viewpoint. You rush back in the car and keep going.
     
    At one point, before our lives were meticulously curated, we followed along in social for all of life's moments. We were trained to follow along to see what our friends were doing at that exact moment. Regardless, you've learned that life is about moments. We have all learned this. We've come together, to share content about telling us to purge social, to heal with our trauma, to let it go, to rest, to practice self-care and to actually live our lives. However, you experience this - it's about distractions stealing what you're committed to in the moment.

Whether you've felt confident in the season of chaos or you've felt loneliness in the midst of vulnerability - there's an ongoing sense of fear. It's up to us to press past what it will try to steal from us. Fear will come for your relationships, your mindset, your friendships and your growth. Listen in, see what you can relate to this week, and make the choice to stop allowing fear to take over life's most precious moments. You were meant to experience more in life, not remain fearful.

    17: The Power of Interruption and How It Will Change Your Life

    17: The Power of Interruption and How It Will Change Your Life

    This week, we're talking about the power of interruption. This episode is going to encourage you to interrupt someone for good in the midst of this Global Pandemic. This is the episode that's going to remind you about the person that keeps popping into your mind. Text the person that’s on your heart and let them know you’re thinking of them. Call them. Leave a silly voicemail. Message them a video of your dog on Instagram. Ask them how they’re doing. I know we’re exhausted with this question because we assume the answer is the same, but some days are better than others. Someone just might need your voice, laugh, or energy today.
