Perhaps it's not looking forward to your next presentation, or you don't know where to start with your latest business idea. Maybe it's not feeling motivated enough to start that project you've been thinking about for months or find that perfect client. The bottom line is: sometimes we need the right push in life and the right person to give us that nudge. So, what can you do to make that giant leap forward? Try these strategies: Take one step back to move forward. Often, the first thing to do when you need to move forward but feel stuck is to step back. Stop. Avoid trying to force something to happen. Then, you can see what needs to be done and break it down into smaller steps. The more you do, the quicker you'll start to feel better and be in a position to take the next step. Monitor your state of mind. When life gives you lemons, it can be hard to see the positive. It's so easy to see the negative situation and feel overwhelmed. Try to stick your head in the sand for a while. Try to block out circumstances you can't change and focus on the things you can change. Before long, you'll have a much more positive outlook and will end up making more progress than you ever imagined possible. Identify the details of what's going on. Sometimes we don't realize how many pieces are involved. It's easy to think you're facing one problem when it's a combination of things. Be honest with yourself. Which aspects can you change, and what elements can you influence? Also, which parts could you let go? Let the past go. Just because you had a terrible experience in the past with no chance of a positive outcome doesn't mean the past has to define you. Embrace the mistake or pain as a chance to learn and grow. Who knows, the negative experience could be the catalyst for future success. Consider your options. Look beyond your current circumstances and examine all the choices and possibilities. Don't get caught up in your present feeling and give up your power. You always have a choice about your next move. When you look at all the options at your disposal, you feel hopeful, motivated, and empowered. Devise a plan and stick to it. At this point, you have all the information you need. You've worked to change your mindset, taken a step back, let the past go, and considered your options. Now, it's time to take action. Set some goals and realize your dreams. Get out of your way, follow your heart, and seize the moment. Remind yourself of your "why." There's no time like the present. Take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way and most importantly, always remember your core values. Remember why you started this journey and what you ultimately want. This attitude will help you stay strong and focused. Start small. Building momentum is crucial to your success. Take small steps each day and gradually build momentum toward your goals. Discard what no longer works, even if it worked in the past. Use past experiences as a guide, but don't be afraid to try something new if it works better. Sometimes, people fail because they're scared to let go of the systems that brought them to their current stage. Don't let that happen to you! Always be grateful. Your attitude has a significant impact on your life. Gratitude is the best attitude to have because it takes you away from what you don't want and focuses you on what you do want. An example of gratitude is feeling thankful to your parents for all they've done for you. Another is feeling thankful for your health and not being afraid to go to the doctor when you have a health issue. Motivation is not always constant, but you can find your way back to it. All you have to do is relax, take it easy, and consider what you're trying to accomplish. Even when things seem impossible, there's always a chance for you if you have the patience, determination, and enlightenment to persevere.

2 TIMOTHY 1:5, I'm reminded of your authentic faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice. I'm sure that this faith is also inside you. In this second letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul addressed him in a very personal way. Paul reflected on Timothy's faith in God. In doing so he identified the legacy of faith proceeding from both his grandmother and mother. He even knew their names, Lois and Eunice. On November 29, I celebrated another birthday. While I saw my entire family on Thanksgiving day on the 24th, it was great to have dinner with my wife, my father, and two of our children who live in the city. Birthdays are an obvious reminder that we are blessed with the gift of life. It is also reminder of the blessing of life givers-–– our parents and life givers who extend back through our grandparents and all of our ancestors. What we carry forward through our lives should be a reflection of the grace of God and the best attributes of our parents and grandparents. Now that I have the blessing of hindsight, it is easy to see the imprint of my maternal grandfather Rev. Ray Elijah Hudson, who was also my first pastor in mentor, my maternal grandmother Amanda, my maternal grandfather and grandmother William and Essie Hayden (who were also Gospel singers and musicians). I also think about my maternal great grandfather, Reverend Frederick Williams. One of the birthday greetings I received read, "I am thankful for knowing you and God having you in this world!" The thought of living one's life in the present world creates the feeling of hope, and expectation that one's life is making a positive impact on people in our world. On our birthday when we celebrate having life, we can also celebrate giving life, not only in parenting, but enriching others. As we are also in the midst of the Christmas season, I cannot think of a better gift than giving hope and enriching the lives of people. I think this is the summary of the legacy looking back over my family. They were all people living life in order to give life to others. We are all life givers.

Hello, Hello! This is what happens when you made other plans. Said another way... Life on life's terms. Covid, how is mom, how in my niece, make arrangements for the day we leave, make reservation for the place we stay the night. Then call the school to let them know what is happening, make calls to change doctor appointments and it goes on and on. Also the fact that my cousin got covid and Love let us spend some much needed time together. Like its said "just when you think it is the worst thing that ever happened, it turns out to be the best", not that she has covid rather that we got to spend time. This is not about being perfect. It is about noticing, allowing the situation to be as it is, then surrendering the situation to Infinite Love. That is done WHILE taking the next appropriate actions since we do the foot work and THEN leave the outcome to Infinite Love.

To Write us a Review please open up this Podcast in the Itunes Store on your computer and search for Living Life on Purpose https://elevatelifeproject.com/podcast Show Notes: How To Be More Optimistic Every Day Are you a “glass half empty” kind of person? Maybe you consider yourself to be a realist, or you think you're more of a pessimist. Either way, you might find that life gets a little more enjoyable when you can take a more optimistic approach to things. Research suggests that optimists actually enjoy a range of lifestyle and health benefits just because they look on the brighter side. If you're an optimist, you're more likely to have better health, both mentally and physically, reduced stress, and more determination to reach your goals. So, how do you be more optimistic? It all starts with approaching life in a positive frame of mind. How to Tackle Life with More Optimism We can all have moments where we feel down in the dumps about something. You might have a bad night's sleep and suddenly struggle to see anything in a positive light. Maybe a negative experience at work has given you a sour taste in your mouth. However, when pessimism takes over everything you do, it's hard to find the joy in life. While you don't have to be happy-go-lucky all the time, you can take steps to actively increase the amount of optimism you bring into your world. For instance: Give yourself more credit. How often do you sell yourself short? When something goes right in your world, do you admit it's because of something that you've done, or do you assume it has nothing to do with you? When something good happens, take a minute to stop and analyze your thought process. Ensure that you give yourself credit for making that positive thing happen. Avoid undermining yourself by saying that you had a lot of help from others or suggesting that anyone in the same situation could do the same thing. Instead, own the fact that you've accomplished something and allow yourself to be happy about it. Give yourself a break. We can often be our own worst critics. Unfortunately, this makes it quite difficult to live a life based around optimism. If you constantly beat yourself up for making mistakes, take a moment to think about how this is affecting you. Ignoring the bad things that happen in your life is never a good idea. Burying your head in the sand can make issues more significant. At the same time, failing to understand the negative could mean you're doomed to repeat the same mistakes. However, that doesn't mean you should dwell on the bad things or make yourself feel terrible for what you've done. Instead, remind yourself that you're a human being, and like anyone else, you make mistakes. You don't have to be perfect all the time (that would be unrealistic). Give yourself a break and remind yourself to learn and do better in future. Surround yourself with positive people. Finally, one of the best ways to become more optimistic is to surround yourself with those who already look on the bright side of things. Sometimes it takes practice and training for you to reach a point where you can start looking at things from a different perspective. When you surround yourself with positive people, you can pay attention to the way they look at things and learn from their approach to the world. Optimistic people help you to become more positive yourself by giving you a model to emulate. Plus, you'll often find that positive people can be wonderful cheerleaders when you're trying to make positive changes in your life. They're always there to support you and give you credit when you're struggling to take it yourself. It's Time to Be More Optimistic The key to optimism is to maximize your focus on the things you do well and the good experiences you have in life. At the same time, it sometimes helps to minimize your failures or at least prevent them from taking over your perspective. Being optimistic doesn't have to mean ignoring the bleaker parts of life, but it does force you to let more positivity get through. Examining your shortcomings and mistakes will allow you to overcome challenges and achieve more in the long-term. However, it can't help to give yourself a pat on the back for the things you do right too. The more you practice challenging your thought patterns with the quest to become more optimistic, the more automatic the experience will become. You can start by focusing on developing optimistic habits gradually. Eventually, you'll get to a point where you can accept both the positive and the negative parts of your life. Seeing more of the positive will help you to become more optimistic as you enjoy its many benefits.

"I've learned to live from inside out, not outside in."—Peggy LitPeggy Lit is a spiritual teacher and author helping people heal themselves for over 16 years. She co-founded the Center for Living from the Heart and is passionate about helping people connect to their inner wisdom and power.This is Peggy's story—Before Peggy's spiritual journey began, if someone asked Peggy who she was, she would've said she was just one of twelve kids born and raised on a farm in South Dakota. However, when Peggy started having out-of-body experiences, all that changed! One of her first out-of-body experiences was what she could only refer to as the Holy Spirit coming to take away her original sins. Her initial response to that was. "I have more than one original sin?" At the time, Peggy didn't understand what was happening to her. All she knew was she was experiencing "oneness, " which felt amazing! Because of these out-of-body experiences, Peggy realized that she was responsible for her own experience of herself and that she could choose to let go of all the pain she carried within herself. As a result of this realization, Peggy and her partner David began to help others do the same by teaching them how to slow down, connect to their heart, and accept themselves fully.In this episode, you will learn the following:What are out-of-body experiences?How to live from the inside out!What is Oneness?How to find Marla:Website: ANewHealingCenter.comFacebook: @ANewLifeCenterOther Butterfly Kisses Episodes you'll enjoy:Eps. 8: Living Life as a Psychic Medium With Jessica MangumEps. 36: Behind the Screen with Carrie SchmidtEps. 42- GetHART with Meris Gebhardt: A Mindfulness Coach Who Gets You!Follow me on:Instagram: AmyGrayCunninghamFacebook: AmyGrayCunninghamYouTube: AmyGrayCunninghamTwitter: AmyCunningham1LinkedIn: AmyGrayCunninghamWebsite: ButterflyKissesPodcastLoved this episode?

Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you.

In this episode, Bill is joined by Author, Speaker, Podcast Host, and Founder of Jen Du Plessis, LLC, Jen Du Plessis herself. They talk about how she was able to live a life of luxury through the years and what gives her the confidence to do all the things she does. She also shares how she shifted from earning money but not being present for her family to do both simultaneously. Jen Du Plessis, America's Mortgage Mastery Mentor, helps mortgage loan officers and real estate agents who are overwhelmed, stressed out, and sabotaging their personal lives for the sake of their business to multiply results in record time and have the courage to say yes to their personal lives (which sometimes means saying no to clients). During fifteen of her 37-year career in the mortgage industry, Jen has been listed in the top 1% of loan officers nationwide, spent three years in the top 200 nationally ranked originators, and has funded over $1 Billion in mortgage loans. She is recognized as an Influencer in her industry as the best-selling author of LAUNCH-How to Take Your Business to New Heights, the top podcast host of Mortgage Lending Mastery, and a highly sought and charismatic speaker; speaking on stages with such icons as Darren Hardy, Tony Robbins, and Les Brown. Today Jen is passionate about empowering mortgage loan officers to achieve professional and personal breakthroughs so that they stop the daily chaos by identifying their priorities to gain calm to take back control of their business and life. She is guiding her coaching students to attract clients rather than chasing them. And lastly, she is devoted to helping each student's business grow exponentially rather than hitting the reset button to have the same results year after year. She has been seen and heard on Good Morning America, Sirius/XM Radio, Voice America, and Mortgage News Network. Jen has been featured in publications such as The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post, is a regular contributor to Mortgage Executive Magazine and Mortgage Women Magazine, and has been recognized with the Women with Vision Award as one of the Top Women in the Mortgage Industry.

The truth is, life's not black and white. Today, we're embracing the greys. And this means so much more than your favorite muted fall fashion tones.Mary Lawless Lee is a mother, writer, entrepreneur, and creator. She's the author of Happily Grey, a book about in-between living – and she's our guest on today's episode of The Big Silence. We start by unpacking the inspiration and meaning behind her catchphrase, the moment she realized she was stuck, and how that realized truth led to a divorce, and evolution, at the age of twenty-six.This one's all about self-discovery, as Mary describes her path back to writing, how the practice serves as a meditation in her daily routine. In the spirit of writing, we also reframe some weighty language – as we agree that bringing adventure into your life doesn't need to mean traveling the world, and that mom-guilt has no place in an honest reality.

Since then, the Goodins have been making history - fighting for their children's lives and every other child who comes after them.Join me for this special episode, as Tonya shares their amazing story and how she finds hope amid her heartache.

We consider how people will view our house, car, clothes, career, and vacation photos on social media. It's questionable how many people are actually living an authentic life versus trying to impress their peers. This is a trap. At the end of the day, living a life with the primary intention of impressing others will leave you feeling empty and angry. The best way to avoid the temptation to impress others is to overcome the fear of being judged. Live life on your own terms with these strategies: Avoid judging others. You assume that the things that you do and think about are the same things other people do and think about, but that's not always true. You'll be less prone to worrying about being judged if you stop judging others. Deal with your inner critic. We wouldn't be worried about other people judging us if we didn't think about it. While the thoughts that pop into your mind are beyond your control, you do have the power to redirect your attention to more useful and supportive thoughts. Catch yourself when you have a negative thought and think about something more positive, instead. Remove the people in your life that judge you. This might seem harsh, but why in the world would you want someone like that in your life? Have a chat with them and explain that you're done tolerating their behavior. If they refuse to change, or can't change, let them go. Avoid making comparisons to other people. Everyone is different. It's impossible to make any comparisons to others that are 100% fair. You're either being too kind to yourself or too hard on yourself. It's easier and more meaningful to just compare yourself today to yourself in the past. If you're making progress, you're doing very well. Remember that it's not really about you. People that judge you have issues. They might be jealous. They might be upset that your success is highlighting their lack of success. They might be seeking attention. They might just be unkind in general. Regardless of their reason for judging you, ignore them and move on. Be a savage. You might feel weak and fragile, but you're not. Your ancestors were tough. They were savages compared to the average person today. You come from people that survived wars, plagues, droughts, and had to perform a lot of miserable manual labor. You're tougher at your core than you think. You're always going to be judged regardless of what you do. No matter what pair of shoes you wear, some people will love them, and others will hate them. Every single thing you do and say will be appreciated by some and scorned by others. It's a game you can't win, so it will benefit you to refuse to play it. Just do what you feel is best. You're going to be judged either way. If you stay home and do nothing, everyone will think you're a lazy bum. There's no escape. The fear of being judged can be crippling to your happiness and sense of fulfillment. Everyone is going to judge you, but it doesn't matter. The opinions of 99% of the people you know are completely irrelevant. Instead of worrying about what others think, spend your time creating and building your life. Overcome your fear of being judged and live on your own terms. It's the only way to live. #lifecoaching #lifecoach #motivation #inspiration #selflove #selfcare #mindset #meditation #success #personaldevelopment #mindfulness #leadership #reiki #motivationalquotes #happiness #empowerment #healing

Free Quiz by visiting https://elevatelifeproject.com/purpose If you liked this Podcast, please subscribe in Itunes and write us a review. This is what helps us stand out, so more people can find this show. To Write us a Review please open up this Podcast in the Itunes Store on your computer and search for Living Life on Purpose https://elevatelifeproject.com/podcast Show Notes How to Reduce Procrastination Procrastination isn't just a symptom; it's a condition. It tends to develop over time and can also lead to other issues. If you procrastinate, you may want to stop and ask yourself what exactly it is that you are "putting off" and if it is even worth it. If you accept that procrastination is more than just an annoyance, you can begin to deal with the habit and develop more effective ways to manage your time. The biggest key to conquering procrastination is realizing what you are doing when you procrastinate. Some people ask themselves, "Why am I procrastinating?" Perhaps it's to make themselves feel like they're accomplishing something. Or maybe it's a coping mechanism, a way to divert attention from something unpleasant or painful. So how can you reduce procrastination and regain control of your time? Try these tips: Identify the habit. You might find that your procrastination stems from re-prioritizing your workload. A person who delays an essential task for good reasons is not procrastinating. On the other hand, procrastination is the issue if you never get back to completing these necessary tasks or keep focusing on other functions to avoid the important ones. You can tell that you're procrastinating if you do some of the following things: You make sure to fill your day with tasks that aren't urgent. Or you spend time reading the same emails several times a day with no decision on how to act on them. You're also procrastinating if you begin an urgent task but then wander off to grab a cup of coffee. In that situation, you know it's procrastination when you never get back to finish it. Just start working. A sure way to procrastinate is to spend too much time deciding whether or not to take action. Instead of debating, take action and get the work finished. You'll only regret not doing it if you let it slide. The reason this tip is so practical is in how it helps you take the first step. The first step is usually the hardest. Once you've taken it, the rest becomes more straightforward. If you had to push a car, for example, you'd find that the most challenging step is getting the vehicle to move, but it gets much more manageable once you manage to do that. Apply the same principle to your work. Even if it's small, take the first step toward what you want to get done. It doesn't have to be the most significant step you've ever taken – just get the ball rolling, and you'll gain momentum. Avoid assuming that willpower is the answer. The temptation to procrastinate can come from within you, but it's also the result of your environment. In an environment in which you don't feel supported, you don't feel welcomed. In that environment, you don't fully realize your intentions. Ask yourself, “What do I need to achieve my goals?” Then make a list of the steps you need to take to achieve those goals. Once you've figured out the steps, get started taking those steps, one step at a time. One step leads to another, and another, and soon you're moving in the direction of your goals. Many people assume that willpower is enough. But willpower -- one type of motivation -- is like fuel to a car. The issue with relying on willpower is that you can only use it before you feel completely wiped out. In addition, once your willpower runs out, it's challenging to find the motivation to start back up again. That's why it's so important to think about your goals and plan the steps you need to take to achieve those goals. Then take those steps without focusing on the unpleasant aspects of the task. You can link procrastination to a lack of motivation. If you become preoccupied with your own goals, you're less susceptible to procrastination. That's why it's always a good idea to set goals that motivate you. It's also a good idea to plan. Planning can reduce the need for willpower. It's already challenging to use willpower to get a task done, so planning can make it easier. Just as you have to eradicate procrastination to be more productive, many factors contribute to your success. Also, remember that there's no shame in asking for help. Many people procrastinate simply because they're afraid to ask for help. Talk to your friends, family, or coworkers if you need help and get the help you need to finish the task.
Our first ever LIVE podcast taping went down in Wichita and we had the best time!! It was so awesome to have listeners from all over Kansas join us and even cooler that some traveled from Texas, California, Oklahoma, Colorado, and West Virginia to be a part of this special evening! Amy is on a journey to really LIVE LIFE, to GET UNSTUCK, to MAKE A MOVE, and assess how she wants to SHOW UP in the world, so those are the 4 things she talked about: LIVING LIFE: What does it look like to really live your life? (ft. Dierks Bentley's thoughts on his song ‘Living') GETTING UNSTUCK with @KatDefatta: What have you not been able to admit to yourself? (ft.Walker Hayes' thoughts on his song ‘Beer In The Fridge') MAKING A MOVE with @CristiDozier: What is the next right step for you? (ft. Nicolle Galyon's thoughts on her song ‘Winner') SHOWING UP: How do you want to be remembered? (ft. Little Big Town's thoughts on their song ‘Rich Man') Journaling has been a huge part of Amy's healing the last couple of years, so we are very grateful to have writing prompts for each thing from writing expert & author, @AllyFallon LIVING LIFE: Write a hypothetical journal entry for a day that you're really living your life the way you want to live it. Example: What do you do on that day, who do you talk to, what do you not do, where are you, how do you feel about yourself, what decisions would you make, what conversation would you have? Take 5 minutes to imagine this day and write it as if it already happened. GETTING UNSTUCK: What is keeping you stuck and what it might look like to let go of it? MAKING A MOVE: Make a list of 10 things that would feel like winning to you even though it might look like losing to someone else? SHOWING UP: Imagine this is your last day on earth - who do you want by your side - and what do you hope they remember about you? Books have also been helpful during this time, so Amy put together book recommendations for each thing as well: LIVING LIFE: Hero On A Mission by Donald Miller GETTING UNSTUCK: The Body Keeps The Score by Bessel A. van der Kolk MAKING A MOVE: Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed.

"Our trauma shows up in everything we do, from the way that we love to the way that we parent if we have children. And, of course, it shows up in our business as entrepreneurs."For me, success feels like living an authentic and aligned life—it's when I wake up every day and feel fulfilled by the work I'm doing and the people I'm surrounded by.As an entrepreneur, my version of success looks like being able to build community and create a safe space for people to come together, share their stories, and find support for their own journeys.But my version of success may be different from yours. We have different goals and aspirations. And we don't share the same paths or stories. As we all are in a constant process of learning, unlearning, and growing, we are gradually evolving and transforming into something significant. Each new experience is a chance to learn more about ourselves and the world around us. And that is why it's essential to live a life by our own rules and definition of successAnd this week, I'm excited to bring you an interview with Sam Smith. Sam is a designer, entrepreneur, and mom who is on a mission to infuse more soul into style. In addition to being a wife and mom —she holds several titles including CEO of New Vintage by Sam, founder of The Creative Consulting Group, founding member of She's Well Networked and COO of Bmore Empowered. Listen in as she talks about how she sparked her creative style in business, and how she cultivated a culture in her company.Exceptional Highlights:If we're not honest with ourselves, we are on autopilot. We will be in general spaces, not in our signature. Seeking external validation is never the move.Entrepreneurship is important, but it's not everything. Though I do want to be successful, I want to have balance and time for family.The world feeds messages that make us feel we aren't enough. So it's up to us to protect and nurture ourselves; nobody is going to put on a cape and rescue us.Show Highlights: 9:12: The importance of finding purpose in art and passionSam: I recreated designs by looking at magazines and using my imagination to re-envision the pieces. But first, I had to find myself and what my fashion aesthetic was.26:44 The significance of having the confidence to growSam: I've learned to develop more simplicity and find ways to refine my process.29:09 The Vision of the Healing Hardware CollectionSam: My focus in creating the Healing Hardware Collection was to get people to think more intentionally about how we adorn our bodies. 49:38 Ways to nourish our soul and the deeper aspects of oneselfSam: I listen to quiet my mind a lot. So driving has become one of my meditative practices. I love to go in silence, especially on the back roads with lots of greenery.

To Write us a Review please open up this Podcast in the Itunes Store on your computer and search for Living Life on Purpose https://elevatelifeproject.com/podcast Show Notes: 5 Habits to Break Today to Make Tomorrow Better Habits are interesting things: they start as one-time events, and before you know what's happening, you have already formed them. Without these habits, many things in our lives would be excessively time-consuming. Our body starts habits to prevent us from thinking about every little step every single time. So habits can be good or bad, and once you form one, it is hard to stop. A habit can lessen your problems, or it can cause more. The habits that you form today can lead to a good or a bad tomorrow. It all depends on which habits you choose to develop. For example, you can choose to procrastinate, which leads to more stress in the long run. Or you can choose to do things efficiently, which will decrease your stress and increase productivity. You have control over your habits. So, what current habits should you break right away if you truly want to make tomorrow better? Here are a few examples: Stress eating. Stress eating involves eating unhealthy snacks or meals when you're stressed out. If you eat like this regularly, you're probably not eating as nutritiously as you should. And most of the time, it's not as if you're intentionally eating this way. You do this because you feel stressed out, so you eat. You don't have to. Breaking the habit of stress eating may be challenging, but it's essential to do so. The habit of sitting for too long at a time. It can seem challenging to find the time to do anything these days. But it's crucial to make time to exercise. Exercise can help you feel your best throughout the day, and it's a great way to cope with stress. You might think it's okay to sit down for hours on end, especially when you have a lot on your to-do list. But it's important to get up and move around now and then. Moving around helps boost your metabolism, which can help prevent weight gain and reduce stress. Hitting snooze on your alarm clock. No one likes waking up in the morning. But anyone who wakes up is happy to do it finally. The difference between the high achievers and the rest of us is that the latter hit the snooze button on their alarm clock. Hitting snooze also makes it easy to fall back asleep and push back time on essential activities. This habit can affect your mood and makes it difficult to perform at your peak during the day. The thing with sleep is, the more sleep-deprived you are, the less productive you'll be. That is because sleep revitalizes your body and your mind, which helps keep you alert and focused. That does not mean it's a good idea to hit the snooze button multiple times each morning in an attempt to get more sleep. Do this instead: Go to sleep earlier than usual if you feel you don't have a good rest each night. Spending hours on social media. According to a study, daily social media users spend an average of 2.5 hours on sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. The problem here is that social media is often used not to relax but to procrastinate. 76% of adults between the ages of 18 and 34 use social media to waste time at work, according to a survey. All that time spent on social media is time lost at work or school. Instead of wasting time on social media, use it more productively. Limit your social media activity to no more than 30 minutes a day. Working overtime. According to statistics, the average American adult works 40 hours a week. But the reality is, most of us work for longer than that. When we work overtime, we forfeit family time, sleep and keep our physical and mental health in decline. Working overtime also costs us more money because, according to the research, it costs $1,000 a year more to work full time than to work part-time. By working less, you can build a more substantial divide between work and the rest of life. If you want to make tomorrow better, it's important to start with breaking your bad habits. These habits can drain your energy and prevent you from reaching your true potential. If you think you should quit a habit, try quitting for a little while first. This way, if the outcome isn't what you hoped for, then it's easy to go back to your old ways. But if things go well once you break the habit, then there will be no turning back!

What comes to mind when you think of living life moment to moment? Being in the present? Living outside of anxiety and fear? To me, when I live life moment to moment, I acknowledge how I can build love for myself through presence by being aware of how my emotions can change literally from moment to moment. Emotions last approximately 90 seconds when fully felt. It's when we attach meaning to these emotions that cause them to last longer—often feeling more painful. What inspired today's podcast episode was a recent feeling of anxiety and overwhelm that caused me to nearly have a panic attack and cry uncontrollably just before I was set to go drive to visit a friend. Luckily, I was able to calm down enough to verbalize my feelings to my husband on the phone and later to my friend in person. Both provided me immense comfort and support. Later that night, me and my friend were walking in town and she and I spotted a Colbie Caillat concert playing in under 30 minutes. We looked at each other and we decided to go! It was the best most impromptu night ever, and I was left feeling so grateful, calm, and happy. That's is the perfect example of how when we live life moment to moment we can see that our current states are only temporary—the good and the bad. We never know what's truly going to happen next! I hope this episode inspires you to be more present in your daily life!
Therese Skelly is a former psychotherapist who has 20 years in the coaching industry, and now blends her deep knowledge of psychology/mindset with business coaching and wildly accurate business intuition.In this episode she shares about pushing the edges of her comfort zone and what that taught her.Since she's writing a chapter for a book, she sought the services of a creativity/writing coach. Hearing the stories Therese was sharing, the coach invited her to participate in a “Story performance” in a few weeks.Deciding to share a very intimate story, Therese “went for it.” The story was not a “safe” one to tell like the time she went on vacation. No. It shared about past abuse, trauma, and overcoming what had been done to her by saying yes to something.The zoom performance was exhilarating, and at the end, the idea of being waaaay out of her comfort zone was quite transformative. (Plus she got great feedback on the quality and courage of her performance and people shared with her that her story helped the as well.)Therese shares how being “comfortable” is something we strive for, but ultimately doesn't create expansion and growth.This show will inspire you to take more risks, play in creative energy, and live more richly.Want to tell your own story?

Do you feel like you are a hot mess of emotions? Well, you might be an empath. In this week's Butterfly Kisses Podcast episode, I talk with Jennifer Moore about what it means to be an empath. Learn if you have the gift of empathy and how to use it to your advantage for success and personal freedom. "I became really curious, and it didn't even occur to me that sort of the gift of prophecy or the ability to dream about people dying was something we didn't want to have."—Jennifer MooreJennifer Moore is a highly sensitive and empathic person who has been interested in spirituality and the paranormal since she was a child. She is the author of "Empathic Mastery: A 5-Step System to Go from An Emotional Hot Mess to Thriving Success." This is Jennifer Moore's story—Since birth, Jennifer has always been magical, curious, and interested in spirituality. She attributes her personality to her birth experience, which was traumatic, causing my mother to hemorrhage and nearly die. As a result, her grandmother showed up in spirit to help them both. Jennifer has been attuned to spirit and higher frequencies ever since." Empathy is the capacity to imagine what someone else is going through. Empaths are open to receiving information but experience it through their perception. They pick up, absorb, and feel the thoughts, feelings, energy, sensations, and distress of the world around them. This can be a great gift, but it can also be a burden if you don't know how to manage your empathic abilities. In this episode, Jennifer Moore shares her journey of becoming an empath and offers tips on managing your gift. If you're an empath or just curious about what it means to be one, listen to learn more.

If so, you're not alone. Many people find themselves in this position in their lives. The good news is that there are ways to find your inner self again. Here are five effective tips to help you find your inner self again: Identify your passions and focus on them. When you know what you're passionate about, it's easier to find direction and purpose in your life. If you're not sure what your passions are, take some time to explore different activities and interests. To find your passion, ask yourself what you enjoy doing, what makes you feel fulfilled, and what topics get your attention. Once you identify your passions, attempt to focus on them each day. It could mean working on a hobby, pursuing a creative passion, or taking steps to achieve a goal. Set small, achievable goals to understand your passions and boost your self-confidence. Each day do an activity that you enjoy. It would be best if you took the time to relax and recharge. If you're constantly on the go, you'll eventually burn out. Schedule some “me time” into each day. Use this time to do something you enjoy, such as reading, listening to music, taking a bath, or spending time in nature. Taking care of yourself is crucial if you want to find your inner self again. Book a spa day, listen to your favorite songs or go roller skating. Identify things that make you feel good and make time for them. Connect with nature. When you're in nature, it's easy to feel more connected to your inner thoughts and emotions. Take a walk in the park, go for a hike, or sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. You'll likely find that spending time outdoors helps you relax and clear your mind. Spend time outside every day, even if it's just for a few minutes. If you can, go for a walk in your backyard or take a hike in the woods. These activities will help you feel more connected to nature and yourself. Spending time in nature will help you feel more connected to your inner thoughts and emotions. It will also benefit your physical, mental, and emotional health. Spend time with friends and family. Another way to find your inner self is to spend time with people who make you happy. You feel more relaxed and at ease when you're with loved ones. Take the time to reconnect with old friends or plan fun activities with your family. Attempt to surround yourself with positive people who make you feel good about yourself. Hanging out with friends can be fun to relax and feel more like yourself again. Choose friends that are supportive, positive, and make you laugh. Set dinner dates, go to the movies, or spend time at home. Pets can also be supportive companions. If you don't have any close friends or family nearby, consider getting a pet to help you feel more connected. Cats, dogs, birds, and fish can all make great pets. Consider what type of pet would best fit your lifestyle and home. Cultivate a positive mindset. A final way to find your inner self is to let go of negative thoughts and cultivate a more positive attitude. Finding your inner self will be difficult if you always focus on negative thoughts. Attempt to let go of these thoughts and focus on the positive aspects of your life. Think about things that make you happy, such as your favorite memories or people in your life. You can also try positive affirmations to help shift your mindset. Repeating things like “I am worthy of love and happiness” or “I am strong” can help you believe these things about yourself. Focus on the present moment. What is good about this moment? How can you make it meaningful to you? By following these tips, you'll be on your way to finding your inner self again. Remember to be patient and to enjoy the journey. Don't give up on yourself. Believe in your ability to find happiness and inner peace. Start each day with positive affirmations, take a long walk, and attempt to work on your passions as much as you can to help you successfully find your inner self.

Free Quiz by visiting https://elevatelifeproject.com/purpose If you liked this Podcast, please subscribe in Itunes and write us a review. This is what helps us stand out, so more people can find this show. To Write us a Review please open up this Podcast in the Itunes Store on your computer and search for Living Life on Purpose https://elevatelifeproject.com/podcast Show Notes: How and Why Others Try to Hold You Back From Success When you're trying to change your life, there will be people that feel the need to get in your way. A few of them might actually believe they're trying to help you, but they're not. They want you to stay just the way you are. That way, they can feel comfortable about not improving themselves, too. It's frustrating to find out that few people are on your side, but it's something that must be managed if you want to succeed. See how others may try to derail your success: They point out your past failures. We've all failed numerous times in the past. Some people in your life will undoubtedly bring up those failures in an attempt to sabotage your efforts. Suppose you decide you want to climb all the 14,000-foot+ peaks in the US. You might be reminded by a “friend” that you couldn't even climb the 2,000-foot peak at summer camp. They might even suggest that you come up with a more reasonable goal. They will try to make you feel guilty. Guilt is another weapon. Sticking with our mountain climbing theme, you might be told that all that travel is expensive. You might also be told that you should be saving all the money for your child's college education. Or maybe you should spend all that time with your family instead. They try to distract you. “Hey, forget the mountains. Let's all go on a big vacation together instead.” These are just a few of the less devious ways those around you might try to sabotage your efforts. But why would they do it in the first place? It doesn't seem kind and supportive, and it's not. Though they might try to present it that way. There are several reasons why people close to you try to sabotage your efforts: They want to stay comfortable with their mediocrity. If you do something amazing, they have to deal with the fact that they have not. No one wants to feel like they're losing the game of life. Rather than deal with their own fear, insecurity, and laziness, it's just easier and less work to hold you back. While there are some people that are genuinely happy to see you achieve something great, win the lottery, or lose 50 pounds, there are even more that are jealous. They'll try to stop you from being successful. And if that doesn't work, they'll attempt to diminish the value of your success. For example, “Oh, if I had all of your free time, I could easily lose 50 pounds, too.” People don't like change. Everyone is getting something from you. If they got nothing out of their relationship with you, they wouldn't associate with you at all. If you change, it threatens the status quo. If you become something different, where does that leave them? It's psychologically easier for them if you just stay the same. The solution is to commit to being successful in spite of the objections of others. You might want to consider removing the worst offenders from your life. Life is hard enough without having your own friends and family trying to make it even harder. Commit to your goals for the right reason. Impressing others is a shallow reason for doing something. Do it for yourself. Consider keeping your big goals to yourself. You receive less resistance from others. Choose what's best for your life and do it! You don't need the approval of others.
Today's guest on episode 47 is Shay Skinner. Shay came to me with a question for a Q&A episode that I felt was far too intriguing to address in short form. What I've found in four years of running this platform is that it's often easy to find yourself preaching to the choir, in a sense. Perhaps folks are new to some of these methods, but below the surface, most who are successful in their pursuit of financial independence come with some solid ground work already in place. At the foundation is often a supportive family.Shay wrote to me about her history of near financial ruin and eventual bankruptcy. Upon follow-up, it occurred to me that her story was so different from the typical money nerd that I had to have her on. Most importantly, I think her history is far more relatable to many in the general public. Shay did not have a solid support system from her family. In fact, at certain periods members of her family sought to actively undermine her wellbeing. From this stemmed a serious downward spiral in mental health, ultimately culminating in a suicide attempt.But we are not just here to discuss hard-luck stories.What drew me to Shay's narrative is her accountability for an absolutely miserable situation. While she was certainly not to blame for her circumstances, she took a point-forward look at her life. She filed for bankruptcy, and began a slow process of climbing out of debt and using the same old methods of saving and investing to put herself on solid financial footing.This is a story of redemption, and I'm happy to bring it to you today. I want to thank Shay for her willingness to discuss deeply personal and hard topics. Topics Discussed with Shay SkinnerShay's introduction to rock climbing as a positive life forceHow Shay was disowned by her family at age 19, leading to a mental health crisisWhy Shay came to bankruptcy as a clean startThe shame of bankruptcy and the requirements for filingDiscovering a path towards financial independence from a coworkerComparison culture and hidden ways it impacts our spendingShay's psychological struggles with stock market volatilityThe importance of communityMoney relationships with a partnerHow Shay has gone from crushing debt to saving 50% of her income!Why Shay wants financial independence but doesn't want to stop workingWhy women resist early retirement more than menThe importance of discussing moneyThe pros and cons of a college educationSo much more!

Nonviolent communication is powerful because it has really understood some very key things about what creates a connection between people. It helps people create an environment in which what is talked about is done in a value-free, non-judgmental way. So then what is talked about is focused on what is going on in each person on a vulnerable level rather than a 'let's have a dialogue and debate' approach. Sometimes it's like an archeological dig to get to the root of why one person feels the way they do. The outcome is a bi-directional desire to be, to cooperate, to help, and it's spontaneous. - Wayland Myers Are You Stressed Out Lately?

What to do instead of making very quick assessments and judgments when we encounter something by neutrally observing the situation. How to get curious about someone and what they're saying instead of reacting quickly. Conscious communication skills to help you open up to someone about your emotions. [21:15] Examples of Practicing NVC in Everday Life Why it can be harder to practice the NVC model the higher the intensity of feelings and emotions that you are feeling. A specific example of how Wayland used NVC to help a friend including share his honest emotions with him. How Wayland and his wife were able to work out a difficult moment of tension through NVC when he shared with her that he was thinking of not coming to her book club anymore.

The 4 important pieces of information someone needs to use NVC to help repair a relationship or to heal or situation. How Wayland tries to "reside in the heart of the giraffe" and why that is key for him when practicing NVC in his personal life. [45:00] Political Divison + How We Can Be Whole Again Why Wayland believes that underneath it all, we all have the exact same needs despite our different opinions about politics. What Josh and Wayland would like to see from the US government especially honesty and open communication rather than just mandates. The long way we have to go yet as a species and why we're like a 13-year-old behind the wheel of a Ferrari. Why we might find ourselves being drawn to one side of politics over the other. Wayland's views on politics and why the Left and Right may have different beliefs on methodology and what we think is important but we all want a government to do what it can do for us and do it well. How we can switch our mindset and be more curious than judgemental when it comes to other people's different thoughts, opinions, and beliefs. The software vs hardware in our brain and why some beliefs are just naturally wired within us. I Feel, Therefore I Am: Neuroscientist Antonio Damasio on Consciousness as a Full-Body Phenomenon [1:01:00] Wellness Tools for Greater NVC + Loving Curiosity Exploring whether or not NVC is enough or what other tools we can use to bring more loving curiosity into our lives and relationships. Why taking care of your own health and physical needs is key before helping others. How Wayland's wife has been one of his greatest teachers. The difference between male and female brains when it comes to social skills and problem-solving. Why females often just seek comfort instead of resolution when speaking about their current thoughts, problems, and conflicts. [1:07:00] Loving Detachment: Why It's a Gift Unpacking what loving detachment is and why Josh is working on it right now in his own wellness journey. Wayland's own definition of loving detachment and how to apply that to different close relationships. Why loving detachment can actually be a gift and plays a positive role in the human evolutionary process. Wayland's daughter's addiction and the struggles she went through at a young age.

The Creative Act: A Way of Being by Rick Rubin The most important factors that will help a person be creative, heal and grow in life. [1:24:00] Living Life on Life's Own Terms The life-changing moment Wayland's father went through when his father passed away from the Spanish flu and his grandmother told him that he was now the man of the house. How his father's childhood impacted the way that Wayland was raised to not accept life on its terms but to take charge and be responsible until he tried the 12-Step Program. Wayland's atypical depression and having the need to take medication for it for about 30 years. Exploring epigenetics and how events in the mother's life can impact a baby's health while in utero.

[1:30:00] The Four NVC Components: Observation, Feeling, Needs, Request The polarization that Wayland sees in our society today and why that concerns him so much. Cultural differences such as in Holland where they don't show appreciation or say, 'Thank you.' How we can tell if a need is coming from a wounded and unhealthy place or from the heart and soul. Inner work practices for peeling back the layers of the needs that we had when we were younger and why they no longer mean something to us now. The impact of Wayland's father forbidding talking about emotions as a family. Similarities in both Wayland and Josh's own families growing up. Why we have such a righteous need to be correct and "win" an argument. The three things that are true when we are angry according to Marshall. [1:40:30] Building Resiliency with NonViolent Communication How NVC can help us build greater resiliency. The current state of the USA's democracy that is pushing people to be more resilient, use their voice and get more involved. Wayland's ideal world and how he believes we can get there together. The call for both political parties to learn how to engage in constructive dialogue because we need both perspectives and diversity for us to learn how to enrich the value of our lives as a result of it. Why our fundamental need is not to feel safe; we just want to feel safe. How, in a heterosexual relationship, a woman can share with her male partner that she does not feel safe. Also how, in a heterosexual relationship, a man can share with her female partner that he does not feel respected. How Wayland has gotten to a place where he now trusts his inner compass completely to follow his dreams and what brings him joy. Nootopia - Save 10% at checkout with the code "JOSH10" Feeling & Knowing: Making Minds Conscious by Antonia Damasio Power Quotes From The Show How Loving Detachment Helps People Heal "Loving detachment is where we allow the other person the opportunity to encounter the natural consequences of their choices. The dignity of being autonomous and capable is so powerful. I always used to think that the concept of loving detachment sounded like abandonment but my daughter needed to encounter that consequence because it was her turning point. That was her springboard and that's the thing about hitting rock bottom, you can push off." - Wayland Myers Men vs Women's Approach to Handling Conflict "One of the things that has really helped eliminate about 9 out of 10 arguments in our home is to ask yourself, 'Are you looking for comfort or solutions?' For males such as myself, my very first impulse is to get in there and fix it but maybe your partner just needs you to listen to them. In the example of my wife, 80% of the time she just wants to be able to talk about something openly to help her work through it; she doesn't want me to give her a solution." - Wayland Myers How to "Reside in the Heart of the Giraffe" "When you have two people in a situation of being in a heightened state of emotional pain, as I call it, try to reside in the heart of the giraffe. To do this, look at the other person and say to yourself, 'They have the same set of needs for connection but the way they're going about it really isn't working.' For whatever reason, they have gotten desperate but there is a very positive vulnerability behind all of that front that they're putting up. I just hold that awareness and know that this is a good person because I know they're a good person and we're just really fumbling and stumbling because we really haven't figured out how to sort this thing.
