FREE Toxic People Survival Guidehttps://krisreece.com/toxic-people-survival-guideIf you're like many well-meaning Christians who choose to stay with a narcissist, you can't quiet that nagging question—how do I love this person without letting their toxic behavior get to me?Another common thought is, I'm barely done forgiving them for their last offense and here come three more.The underlying question is, How do I love them without losing myself?!To love a toxic person without losing yourself, there are three traps that you'll need to avoid.Trap #1: Empathy. In general, empathy is a wonderful, Christ-like quality. But when you have empathy for a narcissist, the receiver only hears another opportunity to take advantage of you. (Even if they don't say that out loud.)The real trap of having empathy for a narcissist is the false belief that you can heal them.Trap #2: Codependency. Codependency is an unhealthy--almost addictive--attachment to another person. It is the devil's counterfeit for interdependency. When codependency is thriving, you can't be ok unless the other person is OK with you.The underlying trap of codependency is a quiet belief that you can change them.Trap #3: Hope. All things are possible with God. But the problem doesn't lie with God, it lies with the narcissist's choices. And until they stop choosing demonic behavior and repent, there isn't much hope.Proverbs 13:12 reminds us, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.”So, if you're hoping that today will be a good day but then getting rocked when it's not, it's likely that your hope doesn't have substance.The trap of hope is the belief that it will be worth the wait.Now that you know where the landmines are and how to avoid them, let's apply the three key principles to loving a narcissist without losing yourself:1. Accept who they are, and how they are.I can almost here you now, “Kris, how can you tell me to accept such terrible behavior? That's like saying, ‘That's ok, just walk all over me!'”That's not what I'm saying. Acceptance doesn't mean agreement. It doesn't even mean tolerance. It simply means that you recognize who they are and how they are and give up the responsibility, or the hope, of trying to change them.Maya Angelou once said, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.” It's time to hang up the hope that today will be a ‘good day” and then getting bent out of shape when their lies, manipulation, self pity, anger, condescension, and blaming behavior ruins the day.In other words, stop being shocked when their behavior is narcissistic.Simply determine what your boundaries will be and stand firm to protect yourself. For example, if you usually drive to parties together but you're constantly getting into arguments over his road rage, drive yourself, grab an Uber, or don't go at all.If you want to learn how to set healthy boundaries you can be proud of….check out this episode here (link)2. Practice emotional guarding.Proverbs 4:23 says, “Above all else guard your heart for out of it flows the wellsprings of life.”Unless you enjoy intense emotional rollercoasters that leave you exhilarated one minute and vomiting the next, you will have to emotionally—and maybe physically—detach from this person.This means that you no longer own their behaviors and emotions.I realize that this may feel cold but that's where avoiding the trap of codependency comes in.You've likely been trained to take on more than you should in a relationship, all in the name of love.This isn't biblical. Jesus didn't do it, and neither should we. In fact, if you want to see a comical parody on what it would look like IF Jesus were codependent, check out this episode here

“If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present — gratefully.” — Maya Angelou

As the great John C. Maxwell once said, "A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way." This quote encapsulates the essence of true leadership – the ability to not only envision a better future but also to inspire others to join you on that path.In today's rapidly evolving world, we face challenges that require innovative solutions and a new approach to leadership. It is no longer enough for leaders to maintain the status quo. Instead, they must pave the way for a brighter tomorrow by setting new benchmarks in their respective fields.Leadership is about having the courage to make bold decisions, take calculated risks, and embrace change. The legendary Nelson Mandela once said, "I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." As leaders, we must face our fears and rise above them to create a world that reflects our highest aspirations.The world is hungry for leaders who are not only proficient in their fields but also possess a strong moral compass. Leaders who embody empathy, integrity, and compassion. These qualities, when combined with a relentless pursuit of excellence, create a new standard for leadership that will elevate society to new heights.As Mahatma Gandhi once stated, "Be the change you wish to see in the world." We must embrace the responsibility of leading by example, demonstrating that ethical behavior and steadfast determination can coexist. In doing so, we will inspire others to follow suit and create a ripple effect of positive change.So, how can we become the trailblazing leaders who set new standards?First, we must cultivate a growth mindset. Carol Dweck, a renowned psychologist, said, "In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point." Embrace the idea that you can always learn, adapt, and improve.Second, practice servant leadership. Robert K. Greenleaf, the founder of the servant leadership movement, described it as, "The servant-leader is servant first... It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first." By prioritizing the needs of others and empowering your team to succeed, you demonstrate a level of leadership that sets new standards.Third, embrace diversity and inclusion. As the brilliant Maya Angelou said, "In diversity, there is beauty and there is strength." By fostering an environment that values different perspectives, backgrounds, and ideas, we create a fertile ground for innovation and progress.Lastly, never forget the importance of self-reflection and personal growth. The legendary Socrates once declared, "An unexamined life is not worth living." Make time for introspection, evaluate your strengths and weaknesses, and continuously strive for self-improvement.
The Feisty Women's Performance Podcast
Since Title IX passed in 1972, there has been extraordinary growth in women's sports and performance. However, for decades, athletic research primarily conducted on males has simply been applied to women, and as we've discovered, when the standard of performance is based on that one type of person, it skews our understanding of what is considered “normal physiology.”Christine Yu, author of the new book Up to Speed - The Groundbreaking Science of Women Athletics speaks with Sara Gross about the future of research on women athletes. As Yu says, “Women and female athletes need specific research that reflects their personal experience to provide appropriate and specific guidance from nutrition and injury prevention, to customized training, and even clothing and gear.”So, what reputable science and research is out there for performance-minded women? And, how can we apply good science to our lives in order to boost performance and remain healthy for years to come? Sara and Christine discuss this and more, including:Why females have often been considered “messy” and “poor subjects” when it comes to research studies on athletics The impact good (and bad) research can have on female athletes, especially when it comes to longevity in sports and overall healthHow more female scientists and researchers are asking the right questions and leading the way to close the gender gap in researchWhat surprised Christine the most when researching and writing the book?What angered her, and what has she applied any of the good research in her own daily life?Maya Angelou once said, “When you know better, you do better.” Yu's book provides an understanding of how we go to this point and, thanks to the vigilance of others, how we are starting to do better.Order Up to Speed - The Groundbreaking Science of Women Athletics Follow Christine on Instagram: @cyu888Download the Feisty Female Athlete Guide:https://www.womensperformance.com/ Learn More about the Feisty Kona Tri-Cation:https://www.feistytriathlon.com/trication Follow us on Instagram:@feisty_womens_performance Feisty Media Website:https://livefeisty.com/ Support our Partners:The Amino Co: Shop Feisty's Favorite 100% Science-Backed Amino Acid Supplements.

Subtitle: When you think about creativity, you typically think of painting, poetry, or some other art form. The truth is, creativity is in everything; whether it's a design, a color scheme, or a plan of action. In business, creativity can be your secret weapon to success. The hard part is convincing others that it's a weapon, not a hindrance. In this episode, we break down practical ways to market creative as well as the importance of communication, conviction, the true meaning of a brand, breaking stereotypes, and more in this week's episode.

Ken responds by discussing the importance of leveraging creativity and how it can create value. He breaks down practical ways to use creativity to drive business elements and highlights its power in generating practical results.

He explains how creativity can elevate and express that promise, emphasizing the importance of backing up the brand with logistics, practical elements, and product execution. Bob adds to this by stressing that without the practical elements to back up the brand, it loses its value. The guys then discuss how creativity can impact and improve areas of our lives on a personal level. They talk about the importance of breaking down the existing stereotypes about creativity and shifting one's mindset to embrace creativity as a valuable skill. They emphasize that creativity is not limited to artistic endeavors but can be applied in all aspects of life, including problem-solving and decision-making.

Bob answers by emphasizing the importance of communication and interpreting branding, marketing, and strategy in a language that the client can understand. Brad adds to this by discussing the importance of understanding the customer journey and how a brand makes them feel. The guys also discuss the importance of backing up a rebrand with fulfilled promises and how communicating the value of creativity is crucial in effectively marketing creative services. They acknowledge the challenges of marketing creative services and stress the importance of communicating their value. In conclusion, the guys close with a quote by Maya Angelou, "people don't remember what you said or what you did. They remember how you made them feel." This quote highlights the importance of the emotional impact that creativity can have and how it can leave a lasting impression. Overall, the episode emphasizes the practical value of creativity in business, personal growth, and marketing creative services effectively. Top 3 Curtain Pulls in this episode: Keep your promises. Keeping your promise is crucial in building a successful brand. If your brand promise is not backed up with logistics and practical elements, then it has no value at all. Failing to deliver on your promise can damage your reputation, reduce customer loyalty, and ultimately harm your bottom line. It's crucial to ensure that you're consistently delivering on your brand promise by aligning your creative strategy with practical elements and focusing on delivering an excellent customer experience. “Your brand is not your logo, it's not your brand colors. A brand is a promise. A promise is elevated and expressed through creativity.” Communicate value. Communicating value is crucial when marketing creative services. To effectively communicate value, focus on the client's issues and frame them in a way that they'll understand. By approaching marketing from a communication perspective and using common language, you can build trust and establish a level playing field. It's also important to understand your customers' journey and tailor your messaging to resonate with them. Ultimately, focus on being clear, concise, and compelling in communicating the benefits of your creative services. “I always approach it from a communication perspective. Because most people understand that you're kind of on a level playing field. And if you can reinterpret branding, marketing, strategy, all of that and put it into common language of communication, I think you'd then you're on that's how you can sell that a lot better.” Find your conviction. Finding conviction is crucial in the creative industry. It involves having a deep belief in your creative abilities and the value of your work. To find your conviction, collaborate with like-minded individuals, define your brand, and be true to your values. Trusting your instincts, taking risks, and creating authentic work can lead to greater success and fulfillment. “You have to have really strong conviction as a creator.” For more tips, discussion, and behind the scenes: Follow us on Instagram @AgencyPodcast Join our closed Facebook community for agency leaders About The Guys: Bob Hutchins: Founder of BuzzPlant, a digital agency that he ran from from 2000 -2017.

And then I would take it a step further and say, Does being creative and learning how to think creatively? Is it essential for success?” [4:08] Ken talks about the importance of leveraging creativity and the value it can create. [5:32] Ken breaks down some of the ways you can practically leverage creativity. “That's why I think creativity is so powerful; it's so practical, because when leveraged correctly, it actually drives practical business elements.” [7:41] Brad discusses what a brand actually is. “Your brand is not your logo, it's not your brand colors. A brand is a promise. A promise is elevated and expressed through creativity.” [12:13] Bob talks about the importance of backing up your brand with logistics, practical elements, and your creative. “If it's not backed up with the logistics and the practical side and the product and how that product is executed, then the brand has no value at all.” [14:49] Bob begins a new discussion, talking about the practical and personal ways creativity can impact and improve areas of our lives. [21:07] Bob talks about the importance of breaking down the believed stereotypes about creativity and shifting your mindset. “There's real value in going, I don't have to just do it this one way. That's the value that people come and pay us for.” [24:44] Ken discusses the importance of identifying your superpower and advantages in the market. [26:18] Brad talks about the power of strong conviction in creative, product, and brand. “You have to have really strong conviction as a creator.” [28:18] Ken asks the guys if they have any strategies or thoughts on how to effectively market creative services. [29:55] Bob answers and discusses the importance of communicating the client's issue to them in a way they'll understand. Often miscommunication is the issue, so looking at the application of creative services with that lens is an effective way to market them. “I always approach it from a communication perspective. Because most people understand that you're kind of on a level playing field. And if you can reinterpret branding, marketing, strategy, all of that and put it into common language of communication, I think you'd then you're on that's how you can sell that a lot better.” [32:21] Brad talks about the importance of understanding the journey of the customers and how does your brand make them feel? [35:31] Brad discusses the importance of backing up a rebrand with fulfilled promises. “But if you reinvent yourself, it's not just changing a logo; that was the last thing we did. They had to change and make a promise that they had to organizationally keep.” [38:51] Ken talks about the challenges of effectively marketing creative and the importance of communicating its value. “In a marketing problem, there are very few things that are not creative related.” [42:03] Brad closes with a Maya Angelou quote, “people don't remember what you said or what you did.

As I have watched in despair as the medical and general rights of our trans community members continue to get stripped in state after state, I am continually motivated to interview people who work in the field and can speak to the many issues I feel people are making decisions based on fear, bias, misinformation, bad science, bad politics and plain old discrimination. Dr. Lisa Hansen recently wrote an excellent op-ed in the Salt Lake Tribune titled “Mental health professionals see the danger in Utah's anti-transgender law.” We will discuss her many points, as well as what she is seeing on the ground since she runs a non-profit mental health clinic which specifically targets care for LGBTQ+ youth and their families. Hopefully what Maya Angelou said is still true: when we know better we do better. To find out more about Dr. Hansen and her clinic, please visit: https://flourishtherapy.org/lisa-tensmeyer-hansen/ Please consider donating: https://flourishtherapy.org/#donate Your donations go directly to supporting clients to receive the quality care they need and deserve. Donations will also go towards empowering more counselors and therapists to be trained in best practices that increase the quality of life for LGBTQ individuals and families.

In this episode, I sit down with musician, bandleader, professor, and historian Mausiki Scales. We talk about his growing-up years in Gary, Indiana, where he was raised in a household that promoted education and black excellence. He shares what it was like for him, as a teenager, to meet the likes of James Baldwin, Maya Angelou, and Gwendolyn Brooks and the profound effect that had on him later in his life. He went on to meet deep-thinking, impactful professors at Tuskegee University; it was there that he experienced a cultural awakening, and in graduate school at Clark-Atlanta where his love for travel, and especially his time in West Africa, helped him see the world in a different way. We discuss the influence on him of African writer Fu-Kiau, as well as Mausiki's approach to African spirituality and bringing balance to the community. Lastly, we take a deep dive into his musical career and the influence of Fela Kuti and Parliament Funkadelic.https://www.mausikiscalescommonground.com

So many of the people we once looked to have gone and we're all looking for those who will fill the void. Kobe Bryant, Steve Jobs, Queen Elizabeth, Maya Angelou, Nelson Mandela and Charles Stanley are just a few of the patriarchs, matriarchs, and icons that have gone in the last decade. We're living in a time of massive transition and change. Times like these, even more than others, demand courage. We are living in the midst of a great transition — a changing of the guard.

Today, CEO and activist Jay Jordan tells his story. We begin in Stockton, California (13:31), where he came of age on the heels of the 1994 Clinton Crime Bill (16:33) before being arrested at eighteen (19:47). In stark contrast to former President Trump's arraignment (3:17), Jordan then details his experiences navigating the judicial system (24:15), his years in prison (28:30), and stints in solitary confinement (31:55). On the back-half, Jordan reflects on the end of his seven-year sentence (38:28), the limitations of living with a criminal record (47:22), and how he found purpose in advocating for people like himself (54:52). To close, he shares his groundbreaking work with Alliance for Safety and Justice (1:07:46), including a new, transformative California law (1:13:04), and a philosophy by Maya Angelou that guides him today (1:18:24).

Maya Angelou is one of the most well-known poets from the United States. She wrote and published for decades and had such an impact that her legacy will live on for centuries to come. Today, we explore her words about exploring ourselves. She encourages us to express ourselves through our creations and thus, to show the world both who we are and to show ourselves the same.

Welcome to Literary Journeys—Poetry Read-Along Episodes— “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou
Chatting With Sherri welcomes author and caregiver; Jessica L. Cannon! "Hello, I am Jessica, Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP), Dementia Support Group Facilitator, Wife, Mother, Sister, and loyal friend. I am here to share lessons learned through my highs and lows along my caregiving journey so that you may become healthier, happier, and hopeful. I Journaled throughout my adolescence and aspired to be a published author by the age of 25 but God had different plans for me. Stepping into a role as a part-time caregiver for my mother in 2009 and then full-time by 2016 provided a whole new perspective on selfcare, self-compassion, and self-control. Helping her transition through each stage over the years has increased awareness of habits, pitfalls, and assumptions the public struggles with. Her transition into a memory care facility expanded my knowledge and exposed me to even more areas families go through unwillingly. Being given an opportunity to see life through the eyes and mind of a person living with Bipolar Manic-Depressive disorder then adding mixed Dementia later in life made me understand how God's plan would unfold for me. Sharing my story with valuable lessons learned along the way has given me purpose beyond what I could ever imagined. I now aspire to create a cultural shift to slow the epidemic of increasing caregivers related to Dementia which includes cancer and diabetes patients, special needs families, and parents in general. " All this lead to her new book; “The Proactive Caregiver!” “When we know better, we do better.” – Maya Angelou

Fearless Authenticity with Jeanne Sparrow
A Magician, a 2nd basemen (for the New York Yankees of course), a Meteorologist… all career options that author Kevin Powell considered, but what finally stuck was the act and art of writing. The library is where he fell in love… with books, art, music, cultural diversity, and anything he could get his hands on. Kevin believes that the stories we tell are the history of this country, and his passion for writing and passing along those stories is a form of activism that will keep voices from being silenced and forgotten. Kevin shares with Jeanne how his hunger for learning will never be satiated, how the illustrative life of Ernest Hemingway gave him his lightbulb career moment, how absorbing the work of writers such as Toni Morrison, bell hooks, Audrey Lorde, and Maya Angelou (to name a few) changed his perspective on defining manhood, the joy and nostalgia he still finds in gospel music, how speaking publicly can be liberating, and why it's important for you to discover your own definition of success rather than chase someone else's. About Kevin:As a poet, journalist, essayist/blogger, public speaker, civil and human rights activist, filmmaker, and the author of 16 book, Kevin Powell is one of the most acclaimed political, cultural, and literary voices in America. Kevin is a native of Jersey City, New Jersey currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. As an activist, he is the president and co-founder of BK Nation, a new national, progressive, multicultural organization focused on such issues as education, civic engagement, leadership training, health and wellness, social media, arts and culture, and job and small business creation. Kevin was also a Democratic candidate for Congress in Brooklyn, New York, his adopted hometown, in 2008 and 2010. He was a senior writer of VIBE magazine from 1992-1996. As a pop culture curator, Kevin produced the first exhibit on the history of hip-hop in America at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, which toured America and overseas. As a humanitarian, Kevin's work includes local, national and international initiatives to end violence against women and girls (including a very well-regarded appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show highlighting domestic violence); and he has done extensive philanthropic and relief work, ranging from Hurricane Katrina to earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, to Superstorm Sandy in New York, to his annual holiday party and clothing drive for the homeless every December since 9/11. His newest books Grocery Shopping with My Mother and The Kevin Powell Reader: Essential Writings and Conversations are both available now.IG: @kevinpowellbrooklynTwitter: @kevin_powell
"Phenomenal Woman" Maya Angelou poem [recorded 11 years ago] #poem Miles Davis soundtrack [No edit no microphone raw file] #soundtrack https://silviadossantos.net/podcasts/
After literal years of discussing Taylor's persistent use of birdcages and bird imagery, Katie and Madyson have gathered every single birdcage reference to unpack the Queer symbolism behind it all. To kick off the episode, the Archers revel in the assumption that Taylor debuted her brand new green dress in Tampa on a Thursday as a reference to S3 E3's hairpin drop from Sappho Speaks. Then, they review all of Taylor's cage-related lyrics in her discography and establish their interpretations of its meaning in her work. Aside from her lyrics, they also look at an extensive timeline of Taylor's relationship to birdcages in her life; They read excerpts from the Lover Diaries, fawn over her human sized birdcage in her Nashville condo, and review all the birdcage imagery from Speak Now's promotional shoots. Finally, the Archers connect all of Taylor's birdcage references to the very established Queer history of birdcages ranging from Maya Angelou to Dali to Rebekah Harkness to Alice in Wonderland to British art from the 19th century....

Dr. Maya Angelou said it best, “When someone shows you who they are, Believe Them.” Why do we choose to believe someone a liar when they constantly show us who they are?

New York City, 1973. Bob Guccione, founder of the men's magazine Penthouse, is about to drop his latest project, and it's not quite what anyone is expecting. Enter Viva, an erotic magazine for women published by a porn king but staffed by – drumroll – a bunch of feminist writers and editors. Viva features groundbreaking full-frontal male nudes, writing by feminist icons like Betty Friedan, and profiles of literary legends like Maya Angelou. Its cover stars include Bianca Jagger and Shelley Duvall. Anna Wintour is even Viva's fashion editor at one point. But what is originally conceived as a high-end, progressive, sexual utopia for women… doesn't quite turn out that way.

We meet so many accomplished and delightful guests on Mysterious Goings On. However, it is rare we get to meet a living legend such as our guest, Oscar and Emmy Winner George Stevens, Jr. His father directed incredible films, including GIANT, PENNY SERENADE, SHANE, A PLACE IN THE SUN, and perhaps most importantly, was there to film the liberation of Dachau. George Stevens, Jr. is the founder of the American Film Institute, creator of the AFI Life Achievement Award, co-creator of the Kennedy Center Honors, and a director in his own right. He has also served as Co-Chairman of the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities. He has won eight awards from the Writers Guild of America. In 1992, Stevens won the WGA's Paul Selvin Award for his screenplay SEPARATE BUT EQUAL. He also won a Humanitas Prize in 2012 for THURGOOD. In 2012, Stevens was awarded an honorary Oscar for his lifelong contributions to the film industry. He was presented the award by his friend and colleague Sidney Poitier. We're talking with Stevens about his new memoir, My Place in the Sun, which is chock full of anecdotes, little-known facts about celebrities, and the power of quality filmmaking. The book chronicles his family's history in show business, his father's work during World War II, and how it shaped his upbringing. Young Stevens was asked to help his father with two assignments when he graduated from high school: breaking down Theodore Dreiser's novel An American Tragedy into two notebooks and reading other books from the studio to look for potential films. His father also gave him the opportunity to tell him the story of Jack Shaffer's Shane, which led to his involvement in the film. Stevens was then recruited by Edward R. Murrow to join the United States Information Agency and later founded the American Film Institute. My Place in the Sun is chockablock of stories with his encounters with names you'd know, including Elizabeth Taylor, Sidney Poitier, Alfred Hitchcock, Maya Angelou, Fred Astaire, Robert and Ethel Kennedy, Yo-Yo Ma, Cary Grant, James Dean, Muhammad Ali, Bruce Springsteen, Barack Obama, and many more. It is available in hardback, paperback, ebook, and audiobook. This is truly a special episode, friends and film fanatics. You do not want to miss it! Website: GeorgeStevensJr.com Click to buy: My Place in the Sun Reviews: “As a deeply patriotic and proactive American, everything he has touched seems to have found a place in our collective history.” --Steven Spielberg “George Stevens' new book is a fascinating journey through his amazing life. He has been at the center of Hollywood for longer than he cares to admit and has the stories to prove it. You will even find out why I've always called him ‘Kingfish.' Movies, family, the arts, and politics – My Place in the Sun is quite a ride.” -- Quincy Jones “Elegant and engaging…this memoir delivers.” --Wall Street Journal “Once you start, you simply cannot stop reading this book. George Stevens, Jr.'s life has been a marvelous journey, as gripping and immersive as his father's films. Throughout his life, George Stevens, Jr. repeatedly encounters greatness, and finds his own greatness along the way.” --J.

Jews Talk Racial Justice with April and Tracie
In this contemplative episode, April reflects on key insights she gained while on vacation. Rest and fun opened up the truth that despite leaning into heart- and spirit-led living, there is still more room–and even an obligation–to be fully and truly oneself. Movement toward that truth can feel scary, since humans sometimes (often?) compromise who we are in service to belonging. But belonging based on censoring our true selves is not true belonging. Discussion and reflection questions:What in this episode is new for you? What have you learned and how does it land?What is resonating? What is sticking with you and why?What feels hard?
