Are you generating enough money through your current brand positioning? And how well does every layer of your brand resonate?Understanding and reassessing what your brand equity is while checking if it is in alignment with what you need to achieve is critical to how your business shows up and converts. If you recall my episode about the relationship status of B.A.E. among your customers, then this is the next level masterclass around that core point.It's all about trust.

Today, we're going to be diving into a really, really fun topic. If you listened to last Friday's Quick Tip Episode, I shared with you something that is a bit controversial about how launching in your business is doing you and your potential customers more harm than good. If you've not heard that episode, definitely go check it out. So today, I want to do an Evergreen Funnel Q&A. These questions are from my Accelerator coaching members and people who have been reaching out to me regarding evergreen funnels. So in this episode, you'll learn the answers to the following: Who is evergreen right for? I've seen many of my students think that evergreen is the ultimate passive income business. Should your offer be on evergreen or live launches? What do you focus on if you're not seeing sales on your evergreen funnels? What offer price will work best? Do you send follow-up emails to those who didn't watch your webinar? Is discounting the price of your course or membership a good idea? I'm also going to share tons of different ways to sell your online course or membership on evergreen, how to increase sales on your evergreen funnel, and tips around creating urgency in your offers other than discounting. Although it's a continuous and tedious work, there's a lot of big surprises, successes, and sweet spots you can expect from an evergreen funnel. And by the way, this is our first Q&A episode that I've done in a long time here on the show, and I'm going to do a lot more in upcoming episodes. Appreciate you for always tuning in, and hope you enjoy and learn key takeaways from this podcast… Discussion Points In Today's Episode: 0:00 Introduction 2:25 Who's and who's not fit for evergreen funnels? 4:57 Ways to sell your online courses on evergreen 17:11 Should your offer be on evergreen or live launches? 22:13 Increasing sales in your evergreen funnel 32:17 Offer prices that work best for evergreen 35:43 Should you send follow-up emails when people don't show up? 40:47 How to warm people up prior to making offers 45:31 Create honest urgency with something other than discounting Are you a course creator or online coach who's already averaging at least $7-8K in revenue per month from your online business and you're ready to increase your profit, have a bigger impact, with LESS hustle?

Today, I'm going to do a short meditation with you so that you can meet your guardian angel. If you are new to meditation, I hope that you will enjoy it, or at least give it a try. There are so many benefits to having a meditation practice. I remember even at the very beginning of my journey, how sitting still was not my thing. I thought it was enough that I was being very present and I was getting downloads. But this year, I realized how important meditation practice was for me, especially during my long battle with COVID pneumonia. Meditation and breathwork gave me a baseline and I felt a connection that determined even my mood for the day and allowed me to connect to that vibration I wanted to stay in. It changed the game for me. If you can try to discipline yourself to start a meditation practice, you can work up to 10 minutes. You don't have to do it every single day. But if you do try, give yourself at least 30 days to see where you're at and how it begins to impact your life the way it did mine. In this episode, you will hear: Increasing self-awareness through guided meditation Getting centered and grounded reducing stress and anxiety Meditation improves your attention span and increases your energy The calming effects improving sleep The Guardian Angel guided meditation Supporting Resources: White Light Meditation for Working With Spirit https://www.hopetaylormedium.com/podcast/fh027 Energetic Cord Cutting Meditation https://www.hopetaylormedium.com/podcast/fh028 Offerings with Hope or Alex: Distance Reiki with Intuitive Guidance with Alex Personal Readings Remote and various In-Person Locations with Hope (Mechanicsburg, PA | Easton, PA | Berlin,MD | Salisbury, MD & Parsonsburg, MD) Mentorship with Hope: Start Your Spiritual Business Available Now Journey with Spirit Available Now Membership Circle Starting 11/1 Follow me: www.hopetaylormedium.com www.facebook.com/hopetaylormedium www.instagram.com/findinghopepodcast https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvsTeGQiDr_JPzn_HPSKIiA Subscribe and Review Have you subscribed to our podcast?

If you're experiencing burnout and/or impostor syndrome, there are some practical things you can do to get your energy back so you can lead powerfully. Burnout is a pattern that's happening globally right now. People are stressed, tired, anxious, and it feels like the marathon has no end. In this episode, co-hosts Richard Lindner and Jeff Mask validate this burnout you're experiencing, explain how it causes impostor syndrome to rear its ugly head, and share some exercises you can do to refresh and re-engage. Three Levels of Burnout Leaders have to deal with burnout. Period. First, there's internal burnout. You're feeling it as a leader. Richard says impostor syndrome always builds when he's burned out. “I'm not capable, I don't have the skills to handle this.” He's been feeling some of that embarrassment, shame, and fear lately, and he thinks this is a great time to talk about it. Then there's burnout in the people you're in charge of leading. How do you know when to push them to do their best and when/how to give them a break? Then what about when your leader/manager is experiencing burnout? If the person at the top doesn't deal with it effectively, they push it down on everyone else. It's cascading. At least one of those levels is relevant to every leader on the planet right now, especially in these times. Two Things You Have to Do We're in a season of funkiness and ambiguity right now. The more we label it as weird/difficult, the more we'll flounder. We have to accept it, learn to be cool with it. It's not going back to “normal.” We have a choice of how we'll respond to it. This isn't about putting a happy face on it; it's about changing your mindset. Acknowledge it Change your mindset What opportunities are available now that wouldn't have been available before? New, unique, and trying times are where character is truly developed, where our best selves can show up. Dig deeper into changing your mindset. Get a piece of paper, draw a line down the middle, and make two columns. On the left side, write down everything that's frustrating you right now. There's power getting it out of your head. Write down the crap, get it out, no filters. Let it sit, look at it, meditate on it, accept it. Then prioritize it. Weight it. Which things are affecting/frustrating you the most right now? On the right side of the paper, flip it. Ask yourself these questions: Is there any good in this situation? Am I learning anything? Growing? Getting stronger? Increasing in humility? What can I be grateful for in that crap list? Then look at those two columns, and ask yourself, “How am I going to choose to respond?” We totally have a choice how we respond to any situation, regardless of how difficult it is. Richard says this exercise works, that Jeff has walked him through it before. Getting it out of our head and onto paper is so powerful. “Embrace the suck,” he says. Acknowledge it. Feel your feelings. How you react to that emotion is where the positive/negative comes in. We get to choose. But it takes reps. Go Back to Your Why Some other things you can do: ask, “have I already solved this problem in the past?” Ask: “Is this a season?” Sometimes we need to just stick it out. Acknowledge that the pain alleviation is coming, but it has to run its course. Maybe there's nothing you can do but wait it out for three more weeks. Maybe there's no end in sight. Then what do we do? Say, “I don't know when this will end, but I'm going to keep going.” We're always talking to ourselves, so we might as well say positive things, or we'll keep feeding ourselves negative self-talk and stories. Stop those tapes, erase them, and replace them with something more powerful and positive. This is where step #3 comes in. Step #1: acknowledge it. Step #2: Change your mindset. Step #3: Remember your why. Go back to your individual purpose. Why do you exist on this planet? Then think about the purpose of your company. Dig deep and determine it. If you believe in a higher power, spend time there. If you believe in being in nature, get out in it and get your mind clear. What are your gifts? What energizes you? What activities drain you? When we lose our why, we lose our way. Start With a Brain Dump If You Need To Richard gets super honest at this point and says, “When I hear this and I'm in burnout, I think, just stop for the love of all that is holy. I have a to-do list 10 miles long and you want me to figure out my why?” For the record, he believes everything Jeff is saying. He knows it's true. But he still can't start there. His brain doesn't work that way. When he's in burnout, the last thing he wants to do is pontificate, get introspective. “You don't understand,” he's thinking. “I'm stupid busy.” This is how he buys himself the focus to go through Jeff's process, because he knows it's impactful. It starts with a to-do list, a task list. His brain is a computer, and there are too many tabs open. He has to get out of that, before he can deal with the why. Richards likes to start with a brain dump on a whiteboard. He writes out every single thing he's doing, needs to do, everything that's in his brain, no categorization. He's even been known to use two whiteboards. Jeff talked about a brain dump for emotions, and Richard's is everything he has to do. When you see the overwhelm in physical form, you think, “Oh, of course I'm overwhelmed by all I have to do and think about,” and you can breathe in a sense of relief. The next step is to categorize. Not into home/work, because work/life integration is important, but a grid with four quadrants: Do, Defer, Delegate, Delete. Then you plot everything on the whiteboard into these four areas. Now you're left with a couple of boxes to focus on. You cut it down to 15-20% of your To Do List that you should actually be doing. Look at that “Do” box and get a quick win for momentum to spark your confidence. Richard believes in two big forces in life—momentum and resistance. See: Steven Pressfield's books, The War of Art and Do the Work. Do What Works For YOU Jeff loves that he and Richard shared two different approaches that work for them individually. There's no one right way to lead—or to deal with burnout. You can do it the way that's most authentically yours. That's the beauty of marrying emotion and logic. That's why Jeff and Richard are doing this podcast together. They want to connect with all kinds of leaders around the world with different personalities and ways of looking at problems. As leaders, it's so important to admit our weaknesses and ask for help when we need it. From a coach, family member, peer, counselor, therapist. It's critical that we as leaders have our hearts and minds right. We can't lead others if we can't lead ourselves. If you continue to feel the burnout, stop the cycle. Acknowledge it. Validate it. Work on your mindset. Ask for help. Go deeper on your purpose. Change the cycle. The burnout happens when we stay on the hamster wheel with no end in sight. If you don't learn how to stop and breathe and take a break, it will never get better. Take some space. Know what energizes you, fills you up. Do some of them. Keep your battery charged. Once you've gotten yourself to a place of stability, once you've gotten your own oxygen mask on, you can keep serving and helping your people. Richard and Jeff want to hear from YOU.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 10-15-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of October 18, 2021. SOUND – ~8 sec This week, those abrupt stops to the sounds of the Roanoke River, Gray Tree Frogs, and a household water faucet set the stage for an episode marking the observance of “Imagine a Day without Water,” to be held this year on October 21. We start with some music designed to help you do such imagining. Have a listen for about 40 seconds. MUSIC - ~42 sec – instrumental You've been listening to “Flow Stopper,” by Torrin Hallett, a graduate student at the Yale School of Music. Besides flowing rivers, calling frogs, and household faucets, almost any aspect of life could be affected by a lack of water, including the biological structures and functions that make life possible. Increasing the awareness of water uses and needs is a goal of the “Imagine a Day Without Water” campaign. According to the event's Web site, the effort is, quote, “a national education campaign that brings together diverse stakeholders to highlight how water is essential, invaluable, and in need of investment,” unquote. The event is part of the “Value of Water Campaign,” focused on water infrastructure needs. These campaigns are coordinated by the US Water Alliance, a non-profit organization made up of people from water utilities, government, business, other non-profits, communities, and research establishments. Worldwide, billions of people don't have to imagine lacking good water. According to the United Nations, as of 2019 over 2 billion people lacked access to safely managed drinking water, and over 4 billion people lacked access to safely managed sanitation. In the United States, the American Society of Civil Engineers' water infrastructure “Report Card” for 2021 estimated over $1 trillion needed through 2029 for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater, with $434 billion of that not yet funded. And in Virginia, the Department of Environmental Quality's 2020 “Water Resources Report” identified several water challenges, including maintaining groundwater availability over the next 50 years; coordinating water planning among localities; gauging the impact of unpermitted water withdrawals; understanding stream water quality and ecology; and investing in water-resources personnel, science, and education. Water is fundamental for energy, commerce, industry, agriculture, aquatic and terrestrial life, and human biology. Imagining a day without water—and learning about where water's lacking—can help us envision and work toward well-watered future days.

Adding from the profane to the holy - specifically in the realm of time. Specifically, adding to the sabbatical year on both sides, before and after. A biblical verses teaches to cease plowing in advance, and refrain from harvesting afterwards, according to R. Akiva. [What's What: Apparent biblical repetition teaching new details] In this case, Rabbi Akiva and Rabbi Yishmael learn different halakhic details from the same verse. R. Yishmael learns the "extending the holy time into the profane" from the fast of Yom Kippur, which begins a little earlier than the absolute start-time of Yom Kippur. And which is derived from a biblical verse. Also, on the Jubilee year - when slaves go free, and the shofar is sounded... How much is in the hands of the court? Is the shofar what is required? What does this liberty mean? The sages take different approaches, but the real issue is about biblical interpretation, and less because of an underlying difference of approach with regard to the Jubilee itself. Also, the question of what happens in the Diaspora depending on the Jubilee in the Land of Israel.

I'm seeing sooooooooo many business owners feeling it right now. This lingering ‘funk' where you kind of just want the world to stop for a month so you can have a proper break. But you feel like you can't. It seems like it's everywhere right now. I've felt it too at times. If you've been listening for a while you'll know I'm always talking about your mental checklist. That little list you go through when you're in a funk before you decide the problem is YOU and have an existential crisis. So, on mine is, what time of the month is it? What's going on outside my business right now? Have I drunk enough water? What have I been eating? Have I been boozing? How have I been sleeping? Have I been taking my supplements? But there's one big thing we all need to actually recognise and take stock of at some point. The covid exhaustion is REAL! The social media exhaustion is REAL! The last 18 months have been utterly bizarre and we can't deny that. Just because some of us loved the slowing down that Covid created, doesn't mean we weren't in a perpetual state of some level of fight, flight or freeze stress response. Our brains crave certainty. We haven't had a whole lot of that recently. Our brain and nervous system doesn't like change and we've had TONNES of it recently. Increasing costs of living, not being able to get away, feeling nervous to have a break (whether you're in a job or have your own business!) because it could impact financially. We've lost relationships because of distance. In some cases that may be positive, in others not so much. Many of us have lost people. Many of us haven't known what to do next or what the future holds. Many of us have been way more sedentary than we would have been before. Many of us have eaten more than we would have before and have gained a few covid lbs. Many of us aren't feeling great about ourselves going back into the big wide world. Many of us are still anxious about being in the big wide world in general! As much as we slowed down temporarily it has meant in many cases we're working HARDER now. We're on our screens more. Social media became our method of connecting even MORE and that addiction is now running even DEEPER. We're all navigating this incredibly weird time. That's going to take its toll! On your brain, your nervous system, your energy! And it's entirely possible it might make you feel a little in a funk. I was talking to Mr T about social media earlier, which kind of inspired this (Thanks Tobes!) We have a difference of opinion on social media for sure. He's VERY anti all of it. Which makes sense because one of his core values is connection but to WHERE and WHEN you are. I see social media as connection, he sees it as the death of it. We're probably both right and both wrong. It's no secret that I can't stand Facey B. I'm only on there for my paid for programmes, in and out, serious discipline not to scroll but I see things sometimes and so much of it hurts my heart. I feel people's anger. I feel people's fear. I see the bad behaviour that comes from those things. It's toxic in my eyes. But I enjoy instagram. I know it has it's dark corners for sure, particularly for the younger generation but I find it very easy to curate what I want to see. So I have fun there and can see it as a force for good, if that's what you choose to make it. But he's definitely right in that people are spending way more time on social media, amplified by Covid I imagine. We're in there comparing ourselves. Looking for external validation. Getting lost in mindless scroll holes. Facey B, Whatsapp and Insta went offline for an evening and I saw so many people panic. Or talk about how they used the time, on a Monday evening, to work distraction free. Something just doesn't sit right here, no?! Are you ever taking the time to actually allow yourself to switch off? There's no denying we are addicted to social media, they know that, we know that. I catch myself in it too. We have to find some self discipline and awareness to listen to what our mind and our body needs. I can't bang on about this enough. Even if you're working like a dog, how can you get some balance somewhere? Mr T and I last weekend literally planned to do NOTHING and it was so needed and glorious. It's so easy to just work, work, work. Especially if you enjoy what you do. On top of all this people are beating themselves up for being in a funk! But people are exhausted and it's no surprise why! How can you break out of the cycle? What could you do to even make a 1% difference. Is that time outside, connecting with someone in person, who can help you get what you need. It's very easy to say ‘I can't' but how about reframing that to ‘how can I' and check in with yourself to see if that ‘can't' is really true. It might be! But it's worth checking right?! Fx

Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, joins us to discuss Lebanon. International security experts fear Lebanon may fall into crisis and civil war as violence on the street escalates. The announcement that a court has refused to replace a judge who is involved in the investigation of last year's deadly port blast seems to have sparked street clashes, leaving at least six dead. Our hosts come together to discuss Russia-gate. Ukrainian citizen Konstantine Kilimnick reveals that he was not interviewed by any of the US government investigators allegedly investigating Russia-gate even though he was framed as an FSB operative. Investigative journalist Matt Taibbi was shocked to find that neither Robert Mueller nor any of the other US investigators had contacted and talked to Kilimnick, even though he served as a high-level US State Department operative. Dan Lazare, investigative journalist and author of "America's Undeclared War," joins us to discuss Belarus. Belarusian President Lukashenko's administration refuses to cower to the US empire's neoliberal asset privatization plan, and has therefore landed at the top of their regime change list. This was evidenced by President Joe Biden mentioning the Eastern European nation in his UN speech on a list of nations that need US support to achieve democracy.Professor Ken Hammond, professor of East Asian and global history at New Mexico State University and activist with Pivot to Peace, joins us to discuss North Korea. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un seems to be working to create an air of legitimacy on the world stage. Their recent arms show was presented in traditional western style rather than the traditional boisterous manner to which we have become accustomed. His appearance in a suit and tie is also believed to be part of a makeover for international media consumption.Robert Fantina, journalist and Palestine activist, joins us to discuss Iran. The US Secretary of State's recent meeting with Israeli representatives has been followed by brash talk about war with Iran from both nations. Blinken has said that "time is running out" for Iran, and Israeli officials claim the right to attack the Islamic Republic at any time they decide that the threat has escalated to a point of no return. Dr. Linwood Tauheed, associate professor of economics at the University of Missouri- Kansas City, joins us to discuss Russia and China's fiscal policy. The leaders of Russia and China both have spoken out against US fiscal policy. Russian President Putin argues that the US policy of economic sanctions and profligate spending is part of the reason that inflation is rising worldwide. Also, Chinese President Xi Jinping said that the looming US debt crisis spells real trouble for the world economy.

Intubation is a key part of advanced airway management. Although some of you out there may not intubate, we'll be covering aspects where the identification of the need for intubation and how contributing as a team to the process can make a real difference to patient outcomes. Intubation is subject of a considerable amount of evidence and debate. Increasing use of supraglottic airways both in theatre and in cardiac arrest creates a situation in which there are limited opportunities to train and learn the skill. This brings into question who should these limited opportunities to train go to, what defines competence, which patients now would benefit from intubation. In this episode we're going to cover these topics and more, including talking through how to fine your intubation technique as much as possible. We're coming at this episode with our collective neonatal, ED and PHEM practice which all involve advanced airway management and it's fair to say that we're all passionate about delivering intubation and advanced airway management to the highest level possible. We hope this episode gives a further opportunity to consider the topic in great depth and reflect upon how we can all contribute to improving practice. Once again we'd love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom. Enjoy! Simon, Rob & James

In this episode of The Real Build, I brought back Liza Florida to give a market update and touch on where she thinks the market is heading. Liza specializes in residential real estate, specialized assets, distressed properties (Short Sale, Pre-Foreclosure, and Foreclosure), and mortgage lending. Liza is a Real Estate Professional, Entrepreneur, Investor, and Podcast Host offering outstanding qualifications from extensive work experience. The real estate market seems to be shifting a little. We see low inventory in many areas, but demand appears to be leveling out for now. We are also seeing many supply chain issues causing minor delays and price increases in building materials. Mortgage relief was lifted as of September 31st, and now the banks are ready to collect. Let's face it, we are seeing that things are changing in the market. But Is there a significant slowdown coming? Liza gives an update on where she thinks we could be heading.

Today, I'll be introducing a new segment for my podcast, which I will call ‘What Would Rick Do?' Since this is the first one, I want to do a Q&A around memberships and share some situations that have come up with my Accelerator coaching program members and my recommendations for each case. The first scenario we'll be talking about is what an offer should look like to get more people into your membership. Well, there's a couple of ideas that you can do to reach this goal. It could be a one-off discount of a course with an upsell for them to join the membership… Price anchoring the course and membership… Or, running a Facebook ad to a small offer and then directing them to the membership. One of my Accelerator members did this last year, and it worked really well. But Facebook ads are very different right now as they were before. If you've already created tons of lead magnets, I'm going to show you how you can leverage and repurpose those to drive new people to your membership offer. What I'm going to share are the exact strategies that I would do. This may be a long game, but once you find something that works, that is where you double down.

RAND researchers Cynthia Cook and William Shelton joined me on the Acquisition Talk podcast to discuss their new paper which takes a fresh look at the space acquisition enterprise. Not only is the US Space Force much smaller than its sister services (just 16,000 compared more than 10x that number in the Marines), it is also much more reliant on technology. They argue that the nation's newest military service has a huge opportunity to shape a more agile process and flatter organization. This includes: - Creating a culture of "warrior engineers" - Embracing funding flexibility and portfolio management - Empowering a single space acquisition decisionmaker - Coordinating enterprise architectures and capability roadmaps - Increasing cross-pollination between government and industry In the episode, Cynthia and Bill emphasize the need for the Space Force to think differently about program management. Often, managers are incentivized to deliver on their baseline program instead of taking responsibility for broader integration issues. For example, the GPS capability set was broken out into separate programs for space vehicle, ground, user equipment, and launch, causing synchronization issues. Bill explained how "As a program manager, I had the iron triangle. Don't mess with my cost-schedule-performance. Anybody comes with a new idea, if it's going to make me slip or cost money, thanks for your interest in national defense but I'm going to do what I got to do to meet my APB." Changing this system of incentives requires a different personnel structure, system of promotion, dedicated contracting officers, and methods of accountability. This is particularly true as space systems rely more on commercial, proliferation, and "good enough" solutions rather than exquisite systems that take more than a decade to field.

What do the verses say? 2. What's the backstory? What's the context? 3. What does it mean? What are the principles of this passage? What does it say? It's okay to be confused or uncomfortable while reading scripture. When reading tends to feel like this, it is important to refer to the study notes. If we are justified, how do we grow into maturity in Christ? We are going to talk about maturity in three parts over the next two or three weeks: 1. Freedom from sin's tyranny. 2. Freedom from condemnation. 3. Life in the power of the Spirit. What's the backstory? In verse 18-19, Paul uses the analogy of slavery, which may be hard to digest in 2021 as we go through this difficult time in our history. In verse 19, Paul also uses the word “offer,” which may be easier to understand in this context. Paul suggests that we offer ourselves as willing servants to the Lord. What does it mean? We are free not from sin itself, but from the enslaving, tyrannical nature of sin. In the power of Christ, we have the ability of Christ to break out of our patterns and give ourselves to a higher power. Sin is deceptive in its charm, but destructive in its nature. What does it mean for me? What does increasing holiness look like in your life? Increasing holiness is a person looks like someone that is full of love, presence, kindness, and in enjoyment of the world. Resources: Help!

Toward the end of our earlier introduction to surplus value, the heart and motor of the class struggle, we wrote that: “The rate of surplus value for the capitalist is the rate of exploitation for the worker. By merely prolonging the working day, the capitalist accrues more (absolute) surplus value. Increasing the working day from eight to 10 hours results in two more hours of surplus value for the capitalist and of exploitation for the worker”. For any working period—whether it be a day, an hour, or five minutes—part of the period is “necessary labor” and another part is “surplus labor.” The former is when the worker produces the value of their own wage, and the latter is when the worker produces surplus value for the capitalist. The ratio between the two is the rate of surplus value for the capitalist and the rate of exploitation for the worker. Absolute surplus value, Marx says, is “produced by prolongation of the working-day” . In other words, if the ratio between necessary and surplus labor is fixed, then prolonging the working day will result in more surplus value for the capitalist and a greater degree of exploitation for the worker. Capital's entire reason for being is to produce surplus value, to increase the exploitation of the working class. As a result, there's a logical impulse for each capitalist to extend the working day as much as possible. Yet not only might this produce problems for capitalism as a whole (in that it could exhaust the supply of labor-power available), but the working class fights back against exploitation, and at times is able to force limits to the length of the working day. What happens, then, when political legislation limits the working day to, say, eight hours? This is obviously a limit to capitalist accumulation. For capital, however, “every limit appears as a barrier to be overcome”. Relative surplus value is capital's strategy for overcoming this limit.

Memorable Quotes: “When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.” “Think about the way you're speaking because words create worlds.” “You're hard wired with gifts that you think everybody has, but they're really gifts unique to you.” “When you're aware you're halfway there.” “Community is people and that's what we need. But you start with a community of one, loving and liking yourself so you can give yourself away to others.” What You'll Learn: How to use self-awareness to find your life's purpose and build stronger relationships with those in your community. This Episode Includes: Emotional intelligence is being intelligent about YOUR emotions. Emotional intelligence is the one set of skills we can actually develop by creating new neural pathways. Resilience is a choice and acquired skill, and so is emotional intelligence. You can practice emotional intelligence because you've chosen a life of abundance. You have to love and like yourself first. You can be alone and not lonely when you love and like yourself. Increasing your self-awareness helps you identify your purpose in life and better understand your emotions. Even if you're feeling isolated, think about the gifts you bring that add value to the world, your own world, and those around you. One of the best ways to get out of loneliness is by helping someone else in their need. There are three universal questions we all ask at various times in our lives - identity, importance, and impact. Start by answering those three questions in an effort to understand your strengths, what you value most in life, and in what environment you best perform. Don't leave the house without a smile. There are so many ways you can start to establish your purpose in living. Don't get caught up in the next ten years, start today. Three Takeaways From Today's Episode: Find your purpose by starting small. For example, think about it today in this moment rather than for the next ten years. Consider introducing the individuals on your Wheel of Support to each other and strengthening your community by being a relational leader. Use phrases like “I want to” or “I get to” rather than “I have to” to change the way you view the world.
