    42 Moving From Scarcity To Abundance

    42 Moving From Scarcity To Abundance

    “The way Onlys grow and succeed is not by maintaining the status quo, but to plant seeds, bring others in, and carve a new path for others to follow.” – Angela Chee
    What does moving from scarcity to abundance really mean? And how do we do it?
    As we start the shift back to our everyday lives, I want to share some tips and tools to help you to step back into your power, but to do so with more abundance and joy. I know from personal experience that it is all too easy to say we want to come from a place of abundance when in reality, many of us naturally revert to a scarcity mindset. At work, many of us are driven by this culture of scarcity which manifests in this feeling that there is only enough room for one, but it’s time for a new model — in work and in life.
    “It’s important to remember that the world needs you, but it starts with taking care of you.” – Angela Chee
    In today’s show, I explain how to live in abundance, what an abundant mindset looks like, and what you can do to avoid a scarcity mindset.
    “There’s always this feeling of there’s only enough room for one.” – Angela Chee
    Show Notes: What is a scarcity mindset What is an abundance mindset How do we move into abundance How to thrive in competitive industries How to feel like you have done enough Episode 11-The Power Of Mindset, Gratitude and Appreciation  “When do we feel like we have done enough, accomplished enough, and are enough to just be?” – Angela Chee
    Advice for Moving Into Abundance: Have awareness of your barriers Focus on what you have Celebrate your wins, big and small Train your brain “Pausing to celebrate these moments in our lives allows us to feel joy and gratitude and it forces our brain to see the abundance in our lives.” – Angela Chee

    40 The Power Of Swagger with Author Leslie Ehm

    40 The Power Of Swagger with Author Leslie Ehm

    "You can be accepted for who you are. You don't have to be accepted despite who you are and you don't have to limit who you are in order to be accepted.” - Leslie Ehm
    How do we fall in love with not fitting in?
    Leslie Ehm can tell us. As a former TV host and Creative Director in advertising, Leslie has spent the past 15 years helping top executives and teams unleash their unique brand of swagger. She’s traveled the globe with her award-winning company Combustion working with top organizations like Google, Disney, Pepsico, Lenovo, TD Bank, Uber, and many more. And now she's put all of her tips, tricks, and tales of inspiration into a new book: Swagger - Unleash Everything You Are and Become Everything You Want.
    "My definition of swagger is the ability to manifest who you really are and hold onto it in the face of all that psychological crap that's going to come for it." - Leslie Ehm
    Leslie tells me the success in her life was a series of accidents, but digging deeper into her story I believe it’s because of her swagger — the bold way she moves forward with integrity despite challenges. In today's episode, Leslie shares her "Only" story and how she found her swagger. Hear stories about her purple mohawk, how she became a TV host in the U.K. by walking away from an opportunity, and more. We talk about how to manifest swagger, how ambition can hold us back, and how to rid ourselves of Imposter syndrome and shift our mindset.
    "Those voices in our heads become the stories that we tell ourselves." - Leslie Ehm
    Show Notes: What is swagger How to manifest swagger Can ambition hold you back How to get rid of Imposter Syndrome Why did Leslie Ehm write a book How to take advantage of transferrable skills Lessons learned this year and how you can apply them to your life "People didn't believe that they could reveal who they really were and still find success." - Leslie Ehm
    3 Pieces of Advice or Action Steps: Start to fall in love with who you are Stop comparing yourself to other people Speak your truth in as many forms as you possibly can and frame it for the greater good "I have felt like The Only for most of my life." - Leslie Ehm

    39 #StopAsianHate — Sharing Stories, Speaking Up and Taking A Stand!

    39 #StopAsianHate — Sharing Stories, Speaking Up and Taking A Stand!

    "Representation matters, breaking down stereotypes matters, how you report the news matters, speaking up matters, and standing against hate matters!" - Angela Chee
    How can we use our power of The Only to combat racism and hatred?
    Anti-Asian incidents are on the rise. In the last year alone, the United States reported about 3,800 anti-Asian hate incidents, with 2.3 times more incidents involving Asian women. Now we are grappling with the shootings in Atlanta this past week which left eight people dead — six of whom were Asian women.
    As an Asian American woman, these events deeply sadden me. I believe it is paramount at times like this to continue to share our stories, speak up, and take a stand for the things we believe in.
    "We can turn our pain and fear into power." - Angela Chee
    In today's episode, I share a very personal story that I’ve only opened up about once before, I discuss ways to stay empowered if you have experienced hate, how to help if you witness it, how all of us can continue to stand against hate and why it matters for you and your personal journey.
    I also talk about the Asian American experience in the United States and why it is so important to keep telling our stories.
    “Experiencing racism is not new to me.” - Angela Chee
    Show Notes: How to stay empowered if you've experienced hate How to help if you see acts of hate Ways to take a stand against hate Why is it important to keep telling stories of racism The Asian American experience "We are time of great transformation, but it starts with us and taking deeper look at ourselves, the stories we share, and how honest are we going to be." - Angela Chee

    38 Celebrating Women and The Power of Resilience

    38 Celebrating Women and The Power of Resilience

    "From challenge comes change." - Angela Chee
    How do we continue to thrive and move forward when the whole world feels tired?
    This past year of The Power of The Only podcast we have been on a beautiful journey, exploring new conversations with amazing guests. I hope our episodes this past year have empowered you to step more fully into your power of The Only! I know I have grown a lot this past year. Each episode means a lot to me. I have enjoyed reflecting back on the topics and events of 2020 -- and can’t wait to share more with you.
    We launched on International Women’s Day last year on March 8th and it’s that time of the year again. It's time to celebrate women and that's what today's episode is all about. A challenged world is an alert world. We can choose to challenge and call out bias and inequality and we can choose to seek out and celebrate the achievements of other women. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
    “This next phase requires clarity and a new understanding of resilience and wellbeing for ourselves, our companies, and our world.” - Angela Chee
    On today's show, we celebrate some wise words from women who were past guests on The Power Of The Only, we redefine what it means to be resilient, share my own resilience challenge and I share how to understand the emotional phases of change.
    Show Notes: What resilience is How to understand the emotional phases of change How to use the Kubler Ross Change Curve How to continue to harness the power of The Only How to stay resilient Ways to uplift other women "By understanding the emotional phases of change it can give a greater awareness of where we are at, what we need and how we can move forward." - Angela Chee
    Kubler-Ross Change Curve Shock – Surprise or shock at the event
    Disbelief – Denial, disorientation, trying to prove it’s not true
    Fear and Blame – Anger, frustration, resentment
    Depression and Self Doubt –A sense of loss, low morale, anxiety, and confusion
    Experimentation and Acceptance – Openness to learning and trying
    Problem Solving and Decision Making – High energy, commitment to something new
    Integration – The new way
    "Let's all choose to challenge." - Angela Chee

    37 The Power Of Positivity and Tenacity with “Chopped” TV Show Creator Dave Noll

    37 The Power Of Positivity and Tenacity with “Chopped” TV Show Creator Dave Noll

    “Even after I had shows on VH1 or Nickelodeon or Comedy Central it was still like, I'm a kid from Jersey. I'm a dad who lives in the suburbs. I'm never going to have a Fox show, but you have to believe the impossible is possible.” - Dave Noll
    How do we continue to grow and move forward in 2021 with positivity and tenacity?
    These are characteristics that I work on cultivating every day. Things aren’t easy right now, so we need to consciously create what we want in our lives.  And, as we all know as “Onlys,” creating what’s next takes time and energy. That's why I'm so excited to have Dave Noll on today's episode. An expert at embodying positivity, tenacity, and creativity, Dave has created more than 50 television series including the Chopped franchise, the game shows America Says, Punchline, Insanity, and Face The Truth, and the new podcast game Factorious. Dave and his partner Cleve Keller joined together exclusively in 2007. With 3,300 episodes under their belts, they have become one of the most successful format development teams in the world.
    Dave believes that in order to have these hits, you have to pitch a lot and not be afraid of rejection. Last year alone, he and his partner created 70 plus shows, pitched in over 100 meetings, wrote more than 40 show decks, and loved every minute of it. So how does he keep going and do it with joy?
    "So much of television is pitching that one thing and working really hard at it, but leaving all the doors open." - Dave Noll
    In this episode, Dave shares his “Only” story about his early years at MTV and what he calls his "Power Of The Only Love Story". We discover what Brandon Tartikoff, the former president of NBC, said to him that shaped his outlook and what Julia Roberts, Adam Sandler, and I have in common.
    Listen as Dave Noll shares the secret to his success, how he maintains a positive attitude, and how to stand out when pitching or creating anything.
    "Think of yourself as the product; what is the one thing that makes you unique?" - Dave Noll
    Show Notes: How to keep going How Onlys achieve their success The power of positivity Where Dave Noll got his tenacity The moment Dave knew he made it Tips for pitching television shows and more The One-Click Method "In order to face all those disappointments, you have to keep the wonder." - Dave Noll
