    Getting Over Your Fear Of Public Speaking with Evan Carmichael

    Getting Over Your Fear Of Public Speaking with Evan Carmichael

    Do you have a fear of speaking? Join us today to dig deep with Evan Carmichael on the topic of getting over our fears. Stop living a good life and start living a GREAT life. There are a lot of things that you can do to be good. But what does it take to be great? That's one of the things that we'll delve into in this second part of an obsessed-filled episode featuring Evan Carmichael.

    Many people aspire to goodness, but few aspire to greatness. Why is this? Is it because they don't believe they have what it takes? Or is it because they don't know what it takes? It is often said that failure is the key to success. This may be true, but it is also important to remember that greatness can come from failure.

    It's not enough to be good at something to be great. You must be passionate about it and willing to put in the hard work to get there. In this episode, we'll explore with Evan what it takes to go from being good at something to being great at it, in addition to digging deeper introspectively with the insights about belief and grief from last week's episode!

    Evan believes that entrepreneurs can be successful on their own terms. While dealing with some failures and problems, Evan was still able to find success at a young age and now runs a highly successful YouTube channel, is an author of four books, and is recognized by Forbes as a renowned speaker on leadership and social media. Evan is working to solve the world's biggest problem of people not believing in themselves enough through good karma projects and initiatives that have the potential to impact a billion people.


    What You Will Learn From This Episode:

    00:53 - Too much cannot be a good enough reason
    03:59 - Limiting your talents when it could be greater
    05:54 - Going after the greatness
    10:58 - Stressing over things while grieving
    11:50 - Failing to accomplish your goals and dancing towards success
    16:39 - Knowing exactly what you don’t want

    Obsessed with Energy Vampires with Julie Lokun

    Obsessed with Energy Vampires with Julie Lokun

    Energy Vampires are everywhere. They take and take and take and you are left depleted and exhausted. Today is the day you start saying no to the energy vampires in your lives. You need to take the reigns of your energy and reach out to get poured into it.

    Learn About Omega-3s: With Orlo Nutrition

    What is an energy vampire? How can you recognize one? Relationships are always an energy exchange. Accoriding to Dr. Judith Orloff, to stay feeling our best, we must ask ourselves: Who gives us energy? Who saps it? It’s important to be surrounded by supportive, heart-centered people who make us feel safe and secure. It’s equally important to pinpoint the energy vampires, who, whether they intend to or not, leech our energy.

    Positive energy in others can be rejuvenating. For instance, you’re nervous about a job interview, but the minute you meet your prospective boss you relax. He’s so calm and welcoming, you calm down too. Or perhaps you have a good friend around whom you always feel loved. These energy-givers are people to treasure. The more you surround yourself with positive people, the more you will attract them. In your life, these are people you must gravitate towards. Having a circle of positive people around you can also repel energy vampires. Positive attracts positive. Negative attracts negative. So, your conscious actions in choosing relationships can make a huge difference in your energy level and the quality of your life!
