Today KJ opens the SOAL listening gallery for a story from Shanna Windle, an attorney turned holistic-subconscious mind-hacker with a mission of helping us utilize the natural resources within ourselves to make changes and regain control in certain arenas of our lives. Using the award- winning approach of Rapid Transformational Therapy Hypnosis, Shanna guides her clients towards finally, completely breaking negative patterns in emotions and behaviors that have kept them from living their full potential.In the aftermath of grief and loss, including a divorce and the death of her mother, Shanna experienced the deterioration of her own emotional and physical well being. She sought answers to rising questions about mental wellness, maladaptive behavior patterns, and sustainable health which led Shanna to the decision to leave a 15-year career in law. She created a holistic health and Rapid Transformational Therapy practice based in Florida, Shine Wellness. Takeaways Hypnotherapy defined differently: Guided visualizations with a specific goal in mind. Carry the intention of uncovering the beliefs that may be obstacles to wholly healing. Habits are dictated by the subconscious mind. 95% of everything we do- our thinking, our actions and our feelings- derive from our subconscious. We have the capacity to rewire our thinking patterns to create new habits! Our brains possess the ability for plasticity and flexibility.Recalibration through prayer, time spent with kids and family, visualization and connecting with nature are all ways to practice self compassion and restore balance.Please rate and review this podcast if our stories have astonished you as well.

Taking a risk—whether you end up succeeding or failing—is always the right thing to do, according to Rebecca Minkoff. Rebecca is co-founder and creative director of the global fashion brand Rebecca Minkoff, and co-founder of the Female Founder Collective, a nonprofit dedicated to enabling and empowering female-owned and led companies. In this episode, which draws from the JPMorgan Chase's sixth annual Women on the Move Leadership Day, she discusses risk-taking, encouraging female entrepreneurship, and her new book, Fearless: The New Rules for Unlocking Creativity, Courage, and Success. Getting comfortable with discomfort Rebecca describes risk-taking as a no-loss scenario: Either you succeed and achieve something you didn't think you could do, or you fail and learn something along the way. “I choose to look at taking risks as always positive,” she says. “I think that sometimes we wait for something to happen to us. And I like to tell women, the cavalry is not coming for us. We have to stick our own necks out to get what we want.” In her book, Rebecca explains that women need to get comfortable with discomfort. “Because if you look at our history as women, and what we've had to do just to vote, to get a credit card, to sign our own mortgages—people had to stick their neck outs and be placed in uncomfortable scenarios,” she notes. “So we can get comfortable with being uncomfortable.” Recognizing that the idea of sticking one's neck out is scary, Rebecca urges women to practice risk-taking in small steps. “If you are like, I don't even know if I can do that, then practice with your friend, with someone who you trust, who you feel safe with,” she says. “Practice asking [your] boss for a raise or, ‘Here's how I'm going to ask to take on a project that no one thought I should take on.'” She likens this kind of practice to working out at the gym: Ultimately, you'll build the muscle need to take risks in real-life situations. Encouraging female entrepreneurship After more than a decade growing her own successful business, Rebecca co-founded the Female Founder Collective in 2018 to support, develop, and elevate the founders of other female owned and led businesses. In just three years, the Collective has grown to a network on 9,000-plus female entrepreneurs and has helped women raise over $15 million in seed funding. Rebecca says that she and her co-founder were committed to helping women access the resources and referrals needed to make their ventures successful. “Education was the biggest [missing] piece,” she explains. “As working women who've started their companies with a passion, they're not going to go back to Wharton or Harvard and get their master's degree.” The Collective aims to fill that gap by bringing in experts for weekly or monthly informational programming as well as large networking events. A relationship with Women on the Move includes free one-on-one curated coaching for all Collective members. Rebecca says that that collaboration has been far and away the most requested and most attended of the Collective's programming. Looking to the future Rebecca says the pandemic has been both a time of great challenge and great growth for her brand, Rebecca Minkoff. When stores shut down in March 2020, they watched 70 percent of their demand evaporate overnight. And yet, she said, it led to their company revamping its product line from more than 300 styles to a fraction of that. “So some of the silver linings from the pandemic is we've gotten more focused,” she notes. As for the future, she says it's looking bright: They've recently launched a luggage line, a second fragrance comes out soon, and a home and lounge line will debut in January. She's equally excited for what she sees as the future of solo female entrepreneurship. As the pandemic has led to higher unemployment and a shifting of priorities for women, Rebecca notes the potential for opportunity that this environment has created. “My sincere hope is that they all start businesses and they all join the female founder collective and or take advantage of coaching services [from Women on the Move],” she says. “Because if they can all start businesses, we're just at the beginning of the cycle of solo entrepreneurs.” “I think you're going to see a boom of people saying corporate America might not work for me,” she adds. “And so if you can start a business, I think it's a great idea and you're going to need resources and support.”

For the past 2,000 years, Satan has done everything possible to stop the mission of Jesus' church. He has used persecution, pressure, politics, and even pandemics to do so. But in spite of our enemy's best efforts, all of the powers of Hell have been unable to stop Jesus' mission. At First Church, we're convinced God isn't finished doing unstoppable things in and through us. As we enter a new season of ministry, we invite you to take this journey of faith along with us. May we resist the pressure to “hit pause,” and confidently embrace the next step God wants us to take. We believe we're here for “such a time as this,” and He's positioned us to impact the next generation for the sake of His Son like never before. Let's show the 918 and beyond the power of our unstoppable God!

“The world has gone mad”….. and more on today's CrossPolitic Daily Newsbrief. I'm Toby Sumpter and today is Tuesday, October 19, 2021. Do you love the CrossPolitic Daily News Brief? Would you consider becoming a Fight Laugh Feast Club Member? Go to FLF Network dot com and click “join the club.” We are committed to bringing the sword of God's word to everything on this planet. This is what we mean by rowdy Christians. God's word cuts all our folly, slices through all our pride, and confronts all our sin. This is considered very rude and unseemly to all the fleshly elites. And we are not sorry at all. In fact, we plan to do it more. So if you want to help us make the ungodly squirm, become a club member today. Go to FLF Network dot com and click on “join the club.” And we promise not to stop being rowdy. Bari Weiss on Commentary “We Got Here Because of Cowardice. We Get Out With Courage: Say No to the Woke Revolution” https://www.commentary.org/articles/bari-weiss/resist-woke-revolution/ “A lot of people want to convince you that you need a Ph.D. or a law degree or dozens of hours of free time to read dense texts about critical theory to understand the woke movement and its worldview. You do not. You simply need to believe your own eyes and ears. Let me offer the briefest overview of the core beliefs of the Woke Revolution, which are abundantly clear to anyone willing to look past the hashtags and the jargon... ...In this ideology, speech is violence. But violence, when carried out by the right people in pursuit of a just cause, is not violence at all. In this ideology, bullying is wrong, unless you are bullying the right people, in which case it's very, very good. In this ideology, education is not about teaching people how to think, it's about reeducating them in what to think. In this ideology, the need to feel safe trumps the need to speak truthfully... How did we get here? There are a lot of factors that are relevant to the answer… But there is one word we should linger on, because every moment of radical victory turned on it. The word is cowardice. The revolution has been met with almost no resistance by those who have the title CEO or leader or president or principal in front of their names. The refusal of the adults in the room to speak the truth, their refusal to say no to efforts to undermine the mission of their institutions, their fear of being called a bad name and that fear trumping their responsibility—that is how we got here. Brian Stelter CNN Interview with Bari Weiss Play Audio Weiss continues: “George Orwell said that “the further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” In an age of lies, telling the truth is high risk. It comes with a cost. But it is our moral obligation. It is our duty to resist the crowd in this age of mob thinking. It is our duty to think freely in an age of conformity. It is our duty to speak truth in an age of lies. This bravery isn't the last or only step in opposing this revolution—it's just the first. After that must come honest assessments of why America was vulnerable to start with, and an aggressive commitment to rebuilding the economy and society in ways that once again offer life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to the greatest number of Americans. But let's start with a little courage. Courage means, first off, the unqualified rejection of lies. Do not speak untruths, either about yourself or anyone else, no matter the comfort offered by the mob. And do not genially accept the lies told to you. If possible, be vocal in rejecting claims you know to be false. Courage can be contagious, and your example may serve as a means of transmission.” Weiss goes on to give a list of her own suggestions of where to throw down with current lies being circulated. There's a lot to appreciate about this piece, and a great deal to agree with. But Bari Weiss is a Lesbian Liberal. This doesn't mean she cannot see these true things. But it means she doesn't see them as clearly as she should. I pray that this is the beginning of an honest search for truth -- true truth, the kind that goes all the way down. Her Judaism no doubt gives her some sense of the transcendent, but even religion untethered from a fixed, objective revelation from a personal God, is a wax nose. If she can explain away the passages in the Torah that clearly prohibit her sexual immorality, why can't we all be relativists? Does she believe her God created the heavens and the earth in six days? If Darwin trumps that, then I'm afraid there's no reason why Darwin can't trump these white patriarchal notions of truth. If we got here by survival of the fittest, there's no good reason to protest against the woke jihad since, they're just trying to survive. Where do you get these benighted notions of equality and dignity and justice, Mr. Weiss when we all descended from mindless pondscum. There's no dignity or justice if we are just a cosmic accident. Mr. Weiss is trying to have a world where truth exists while pretending it doesn't have to be held together by Jesus Christ. Mission First Coffee: "Calling all coffee lovers!

Philly Driving Equality Bill https://www.inquirer.com/news/philadelphia-city-council-isaiah-thomas-police-driving-while-black-20211014.html Philadelphia on Thursday approved groundbreaking legislation that will bar its police officers from pulling over drivers for low-level motor vehicle offenses like broken taillights, a long-standing law enforcement tool that critics said led to Black motorists being stopped at disproportionate rates. With a 14-2 vote, City Council passed the Driving Equality Bill, which details seven offenses — including improperly displayed registration or emission stickers — as “secondary violations” that cannot be the sole reason for police to pull over a driver. Instead, officers can issue citations for those infractions that will be mailed to drivers. The legislation will take effect 120 days after Mayor Jim Kenney signs it, which he is expected to do in the coming days. In doing so, Philadelphia became the first large U.S. city to ban the use of so-called pretextual stops for low-level infractions, a practice that police departments have not only permitted, but encouraged for years to enable officers to potentially search the cars of drivers they suspected of carrying illegal drugs or weapons. Instead, critics say, it led to motorists being unfairly stopped and searched for what's become known as driving while Black. The new law is likely to have a significant impact on the nature of policing in Philadelphia. About 97% of police vehicle stops are for low-level violations, according to the Defender Association. Eliminating those could lead to as many as 300,000 fewer police encounters each year, it projected.” On the one hand, I welcome the thought of 300,000 fewer police encounters. There is no biblical basis for pulling people over for having mud flaps that are slightly too small, for example, as I was earlier this year. Or for having improperly displayed emissions stickers. But this is more of that woke nonsense and therefore I'm worried about where it's taking us. What is the standard for justice here? Calling this the “Driving Equality Bill” tells you that the standard at work here is about as predictable as what a six year old boy wants to tell you when he's waiving his arm around eagerly in the back row of first grade. No offense to first grade boys, but let's just say we never know what you're going to say next. Speaking of which... Chinese Supersonic Missile Caught US Intelligence Offguard https://www.businessinsider.com/chinas-hypersonic-missile-surprised-us-spies-with-its-space-capability-2021-10 “China demonstrated advanced space capability by testing a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile in August, the Financial Times reported, citing five sources familiar with the test. The hypersonic glide vehicle launched by the Chinese military circled the globe in low-orbit space before speeding towards its target, sources told the paper. Although the missile missed its target by about two-dozen miles, the test demonstrated China's advanced space capability and took US intelligence by surprise, sources told the Financial Times. The test showed that China had made "astounding progress" on hypersonic weapons and was far more advanced than US officials realized, two sources said, according to the paper. "We have no idea how they did this," another source told the paper. Several countries, including the US, Russia, and China, are competing to develop hypersonic weapons. The missiles fly at low-altitude trajectories at more than five times the speed of sound. Glide vehicles are a type of hypersonic weapon launched into space on a rocket but orbit the earth under their momentum. Unlike ballistic missiles, they are maneuverable and do not follow a fixed trajectory, making them harder to track and defend against.” There are real world consequences for rejecting Christ. The fool says in his heart there is no god. When you reject Christ, you become stupid. Professing to be wise, foolish hearts become darkened. And you can't keep up economically, technologically, or militarily.

What if taking meaningful action steps towards the achievement of your life purpose was a need rather than merely a want? What if working towards your life mission right now today could change the way you feel about your overall life for the better? Well, today is your special day. In this week's episode, you will have the opportunity to take specific steps towards fulfilling your life's purpose and boost your courage during the next 7 days. Together, let's kickstart your journey, even if you still quite haven't figured out your purpose yet. First, let's go back to kindergarten and reconsider what we've been taught pertaining to our wants and needs. After much reflection, I have come to realize that what other people were trying to teach me was a want, actually turned out to be my personal need. Now, what if executing on your life purpose was a NEED and not just a frivolous WANT? Then I'll ask you a few questions (read: my three rules below) to help you pick one purpose. You'll need to work through those because it is during this episode that I'm going to walk you through My Courage Makerspace Playbook to help you take action towards the achievement of that purpose. Be sure to grab your copy for FREE right here: www.melissallarena.com/courage You'll want to have the playbook in-hand to complete some of the exercises I will speak to during this podcast episode. And so, today is a special day because I'm not a believer of waiting until January 1st to begin anything or even waiting for September either. I have begun major adventures on ordinary Wednesdays or made big decisions in Chipotles. Part of my rationale for treating a day special irrespective of where it lands on a calendar is that I want to do things a little differently. The other reason is that when I have decided on something I must do, then I take action immediately. I don't let a calendar or the world decide on my start dates. If you can't get yourself to prioritize starting this dream on a random Tuesday in October then chances are, it's not yet a need. Instead, it continues to stay in the land of wants. As I am writing my own book about having the courage to imagine more for yourself, I have uncovered a few insights that will help you reconsider what you believe to be a need vs. a want. Taking action now in the pursuit of your life's purpose could heal you and breathe a new imaginative perspective in you that's filled with wonder and smiles. I want you to play with me during this episode. Here are the rules of our game so that you can overcome those challenges…this is the part where I help you pick one purpose…listen closely….because here we go….for the purposes of using the Courage Makerspace Playbook today on this special day….be open to pursue and achieve a personally meaningful goal to you (it should not be something that only others wish for you)....then just think about these 3 rules… Rule #1: The only way to pick the wrong purpose is to not pick a purpose (you can't go wrong) Rule #2: You'll have different purposes at different life stages so no need to think there is only one for you (soulmates) Rule #3: Follow a hunch. Lower your bar. Just go with a hunch. If you feel called to share a particular message with the world then great. Otherwise, just pick one thing you've always been curious about doing and start there. Share this episode with aspiring creators, new entrepreneurs, and big thinkers who want to bring an important message to the world and who need all the courage they can muster to fulfill their ultimate purpose because right now is the only time that matters. Highlights: Motivation: The key is that you're open to pursuing something that is personally meaningful to you. Let this episode with me be only about what you want (no one else). Courage: The playbook is about making space for courage in your daily life. A lot of times you might be battling against conventional thinking and you're really having some inner resistance. Purpose: While you are focused on something for yourself, such as pursuing your life purpose, those are the moments that you are going to feel more healed, more hopeful, and happier. Baby steps: You do not have to complete your life purpose by the end of this episode, but have a sense of some of the things that you might be able to prioritize over the next seven days, one baby step a day. Values: This playbook is our opportunity to talk about what deeply matters to you. It's your opportunity to play with all the beauty that can exist in your life. Fear: Many fears pop up even for the most successful human beings on this planet. Learn how to keep going despite them. Trust: Lasting change is going to require you to trust yourself, have a sense of curiosity and lasting change is going to really require you to be vulnerable. Famous big thinkers and creators have learned to trust themselves and so can you! Curiosity: When you feel butterflies in your stomach, rest assured that your curiosity is going to help you explore unchartered territory. Timeline: Deadlines get us all moving. The idea I present here is that you can use the next seven days to build some momentum. Tune in to this episode, be sure to download the Courage Makerspace Playbook, and do the work. Progress is the goal. Progress then momentum. Inspiration: Once you've picked a purpose or the goal that you want to execute on, think about someone you admire who's very courageous.

Anne is a singer, songwriter and community stalwart living in Miltown Malbay not too far away from me here in County Clare on the wild west coast of Ireland. Anne took up the guitar in her 60s and since then has created and released 2 albums. It might be no surprise that music was calling Anne given her family background. She grew up in Co Kildare in the same household as two famous Irish folk musicians, Luka Bloom and Christy Moore. Anne is hugely respected in her community as a real force for love and courage. This episode was originally created for my other podcast, the Creative Souls of Clare podcast, and it got a great response so I thought Love and Courage listeners might enjoy it too. It was recorded over Zoom during one of the lockdown periods so the video version is also available if you just look up Anne Rynne Creative Souls of Clare.
Our world has become increasingly angry, argumentative, and hostile to the gospel and biblical truth. Unfortunately, the church is, in part, to blame; we've become more known for what we're against than for what we are for. But we mustn't let the hateful misrepresentation of Christ silence our voice. People need the hope and power of Christ now more than ever. In this episode Jennifer Slattery and Ava Pennington discuss ways to increase our courage while simultaneously upping our truth and grace.

GRANT, THE FRAGILE UNION AND THE CRISIS OF 1876From Bret Baier, New York Times bestselling author, award-winning chief political anchor for Fox News Channel, and the anchor and executive editor of Special Report with Bret Baier, comes TO RESCUE THE REPUBLIC: Ulysses S. Grant, the Fragile Union, and the Crisis of 1876 (Custom House; Hardcover; $28.99; on sale October 12, 2021), a riveting and timely reassessment of Ulysses S. Grant. This first installment in Baier's new book series illuminates the life and legacy of one of America's most consequential yet misunderstood leaders, Ulysses S. Grant, whose actions both as general and as president played an unparalleled role in preserving the United States.Published against the backdrop of our own time's extreme political division and recent contested election, Baier's meticulously researched narrative could not be more relevant. While Grant's military genius during the Civil War is rightly celebrated, it has overshadowed our appreciation of his remarkable political leadership as president during the Reconstruction Era. Baier argues that Grant's two terms in the White House were equally consequential, notably his commitment to protecting the rights of African Americans and suppressing the Ku Klux Klan. All the while, Grant sought to all hold together the fragile Union-a mission that would be tested by a crisis that consumed his last days in office, one that threated to plunge the nation back into civil war.Born a tanner's son in rugged Ohio in 1822 and battle-tested by the Mexican American War, Grant met his destiny on the bloody fields of the Civil War. His daring and resolve as a general gained the attention of President Lincoln who appointed Grant as Lieutenant General of the Union Army in March 1864. Within a year, Grant's forces had seized Richmond and forced Robert E. Lee to surrender. Four years later, the reunified nation faced another leadership void when, following Lincoln's assassination, an unworthy successor completed his term. Again Grant answered the call. At stake once more was the future of the Union, for though the Southern states had been defeated, it remained to be seen if the former Confederacy could be reintegrated into the country-and if the Union could ensure the rights and welfare of African Americans in the South. Grant met the challenge by boldly advancing an agenda of Reconstruction.In his final weeks in the White House, however, Grant faced a crisis that threatened to undo his life's work. The contested presidential election of 1876 produced no clear victory for either Republican Rutherford B. Hayes or Democrat Samuel Tilden, who carried most of the former Confederacy. Soon Southern states vowed to revolt if Tilden was not declared the victor. Grant was determined to use his influence to conserve the Union, establishing an electoral commission to peaceably settle the issue. Grant brokered a grand bargain: the installation of Republican Hayes to the presidency, with concessions to the Democrats that effectively ended Reconstruction. This painful, though perhaps necessary compromise saved the Union, but the consequences of Reconstruction's roll-back stills haunt the country.Deep with contemporary resonance and brimming with fresh detail, TO RESCUE THE REPUBLIC reveals Grant, for all his complexity, to be among the first rank of American heroes.PRISE FOR TO RESCUE THE REPUBLIC"With To Rescue The Republic, Bret Baier, the nation's leading reporter of history, has written a veritable tour de force. This remarkable book is history as it should be: magnificently composed, meticulously researched, and brimming with lessons for today's divided political arena. Baier has brought to life the riveting but too often forgotten story of how US Grant preserved the Republic at one of its moments of greatest peril. This is not just a tale for our age, but an absorbing tale for the ages. It belongs on the bookshelf of every lover of history."- Jay Winik, New York Times bestselling author of April 1865 and 1944"Bret Baier's To Rescue the Republic is narrative history at its absolute finest. With great verve and a fair-and-balanced ethic, Baier brilliantly recounts the heroic life of Ulysses S. Grant - as Civil War general, U.S. President, Reconstruction Era leader and beloved national icon. His dramatic retelling of the election of 1876 which pitted Samuel J Tilden against Rutherford B. Hayes is stupendous. A fast-paced, thrilling and enormously important book. Highly recommended!"- Douglas Brinkley, the Katherine Tsanoff Brown Chair in Humanities and Professor of History at Rice University and author of American Moonshot

The magic of this podcast is that I get to connect with amazing facilitators around the world. I met today's guest through the podcast. She also lives in Brisbane and over the last couple of years we've hung out at various events, she's hosted some Flipchart meetups at her property and over coffees (and wine!) we've riffed off all of the topics related to group dynamics, learning and facilitation. Her passion simply shines through. So of course, I had to get her on the show!My guest is Suzanne Rose and she is a Sergeant of the Queensland Police Service, having joined in 1998. She was poached by a spotter in recent years, and landed the perfect role for her personality, running professional development workshops for police training facilitators. This includes her favourite signature three-day facilitation skills workshop - 'Facilitate with Flair'. Her role has led her to study the craft of facilitation beyond her organisation, and to learn what is best practice based on research from around the world, including studies from the fields of neuroscience and educational psychology. We talk more about her Facilitate with Flair experience and how she navigates the mindset of "doing things differently" when working in an organisation which is hierarchical, and where things are done a certain way.Suzanne is committed to transforming aspects of police organisational culture around training. She hopes to reduce the mortality rate with the cause of death being PowerPoint, and actively inspires facilitators to be brave enough to try more engaging and fun ways to deliver their sessions - even the heavy, dry and serious policing topics. Suzanne is a full-time working mum who lives in Brisbane on acreage in koala habitat, with her husband and their two young daughters, a Labrador, pet chicken, and an abundance of wallabies, possums, rainbow lorikeets and kookaburras around their property. She spends any spare time making fun memories with her girls, and can't wait to take them on adventures through far-away lands abroad where nothing is taken for granted.Click here for show notesSupport the show (https://buymeacoffee.com/leannehughes)

Ryan Holiday's first book of an exciting new series on the virtues of ancient philosophy explores the most foundational virtue of all: Courage.In Courage Is Calling (buy on Amazon), Ryan Holiday breaks down the elements of fear, an expression of cowardice, the elements of courage, an expression of bravery, and lastly, the elements of heroism, an expression of valor. Through engaging stories about historic and contemporary leaders, including Charles De Gaulle, Florence Nightingale, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Holiday shows you how to conquer fear and practice courage in your daily life.In a world in which fear runs rampant—when people would rather stand on the sidelines than speak out against injustice, go along with convention than bet on themselves, and turn a blind eye to the realities of modern life—we need courage more than ever.
