    5 Questions About Marriage we Want Our Kids to Ask

    5 Questions About Marriage we Want Our Kids to Ask

    You may wonder why this article on questions about marriage is here as most of my listeners and audience are at the halftime of life. The reason is that listeners are concerned about their kids and grandkids. Marriage is one of the most important of their life decisions.
    Saying “I Do” on your wedding day turns into “I Don’t” more often than not and causes havoc, pain and separation. There are no guarantees that any relationship will last, but there are some safeguards. Kids probably won’t ask these questions, but hopefully the topics of each will spur good conversations at some point. I’m joined by Greg, as we are now celebrating 40-plus years. We feel fortunate to have weathered the many storms that have come our way but this was possible mostly because we developed the tools necessary to do so. We hope answering these questions will give you the ability to do the same. Full Article: https://goalsforyourlife.com/blog/questions-about-marriage

    Silence Your Inner Critic-Overcoming the Imposter Syndrome

    Silence Your Inner Critic-Overcoming the Imposter Syndrome

    Your inner critic is alive and well and is often called the Imposter Syndrome, a term coined in the 1970’s. The inner critic is a critical inner voice that is judgmental, critical and demeaning. The term is used often in psychology or psychotherapy.
    When the inner critic takes over, it can be debilitating with self-doubt and fear to move forward. Kris Kelso, (https://kriskelso.com certified leadership coach, shares how his inner critic threatened to take over even when writing his book, Overcoming the Imposter. The big takeaway from this is that it doesn’t matter what level or what field you are in, there is a danger of your inner critic taking over to stymie you and keep you stuck.
    This happens every day with business owners and high achievers, who are especially vulnerable. High achievers hold themselves to high standards and often work alone. Covered in this show are three ways to overcome, or at least manage, your inner critic. Full Article: https://goalsforyourlife.com/blog/inner-critic

    A Hybrid World: Diversify Your Income

    A hybrid world includes the word hybrid, which is something that is made by combining two different elements. It’s a mixture. If you have a hybrid citrus tree, you may have oranges and lemons growing out of the same tree, though on different branches. They’ve been grafted together. Most hybrid versions work extremely well, especially in the right conditions.
    Different branches and types of of business can flow out of the same root source--which is you. This is especially relevant for those in the field of arts, education, coaching and speaking. But it applies to many others as well in order to diversify income. We  cover four ways to develop those branches. Full Article here: https://goalsforyourlife.com/blog/hybrid-world

    When is Enough Enough? Six Areas of Your Life

    At the halftime of life, officially over the age of 40, you may start to wonder, When is enough enough? Many equate having enough mostly with finances and the ability to live comfortably throughout life, and especially after retirement. But there are other parts of life where we can ask the same question. Because when one area is off-balance, that area has a way of affecting other areas.
    In this show we’ll approach multiple areas in answering the question When is enough enough? When you have a dream in one area of life and focus solely there, there’s likelihood you’ll mess up the other areas, so looking at them all makes sense. Six areas we will approach here are: work, recreation, relationships, maintenance, exercise and your spiritual life. Full article: https://goalsforyourlife.com/blog/when-is-enough-enough
