    28 Considering Other Perspectives with Andrea McTague and Zac Erickson

    On this episode, Zac and Andrea explore how looking beyond yourself can change your perspective.































    On this episode of The Shift Show, Zac and Andrea start a conversation after Andrea has a chance encounter in the Tim Horton’s drive-thru. The ensuing conversation explores the value to personal reflection, mindfulness, and taking the perspective of others.



    We can often get stuck in our own narratives, limiting beliefs, and dysfunctional needs. Being reminded of the life circumstances of others can help us see our own life in a new light. By combining our intelligence and compassion, we are able to take the perspective of others, and remind ourselves about what is really important.



    This episode is much more spontaneous and candid than our other episodes thus far, so please let us know how you feel about it via Twitter or our Contact Page.

    27 Limiting Beliefs in Relationships with Dr Lindsay Sewall and Zac Erickson

    27 Limiting Beliefs in Relationships with Dr Lindsay Sewall and Zac Erickson

    On this episode, Zac is joined by Dr. Lindsay to talk all about how limiting beliefs show up in our relationships.































    Sometimes people think they need couples counselling, when they actually need some intense individual therapy. Zac Erickson and Dr. Lindsay Sewall help tease these apart so you can recognize when limiting beliefs are at the core of relationship issues.Limiting beliefs can look like perfectionism, sensitivity to rejection, or an unwillingness to consider someone else’s perspective. We go over several different limiting beliefs and how they show up in your relationship.You can understand why people who are perfectionists tend to avoid relationships because you are destined to disappoint people. In this circumstance you are much more likely to be a workaholic because at work there are very clear standards of what you need to do to be exceptional and therefore “good enough”.Find Registered Provisional Psychologist At Our 124th Street, Edmonton, “124street Shop” Location!
