Grief is an intense and complex emotion arising from losing a loved one or a significant life change. It is a universal experience that every individual will encounter at some point in their life, but it is also a deeply personal and unique journey. Understanding the nature of grief, its stages, and how it affects individuals can help people navigate their own grieving process or support someone who is going through it. This episode provides a thorough understanding of grief, covering coping strategies to help individuals gain insight into their own grieving process or support others during this difficult time.

You derive so much value from having good people around you. Sometimes, you can be that good person. Parents are their children's first mentors; one skill they need is financial literacy.I interviewed Clifton Corbin, author of Your Kids, Their Money, who also updated The Richest Man in Babylon so that parents can teach their children how to handle money. Imagine what it would be like if you were money-savvy in your early childhood. How successful would you be today? Tune in and find out how to become the mentor to your child — or the people around you.Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation:Resources to teach children financial literacyWhy we need relationships and not just moneyYou're more qualified than you think to talk about moneyWhy everyone benefits from a mentorEpisode Highlights:[3:37] Fundamental Texts for Financial LiteracyThe Richest Man in Babylon is a fundamental text but an ancient book. Clifton worked with his ten-year-old son to modernize it and wrote Your Kids, Their Money to help parents.[12:26] The Value of RelationshipsFor Clifton, relationships are just as meaningful as wealth. A sense of wholeness and fulfillment comes from financial security and healthy relationships. You need the whole package.[19:24] The Domino ConceptPart of financial literacy is learning which domino to tip so that your money makes more money. The key is paying yourself first, meaning some portion of what you make goes directly to you. It's an investment in yourself.[33:01] Clifton's Tips for ParentsParents are their children's first mentors. They have to teach them financial literacy and the power of relationships. Talking about money can be uncomfortable, but we must prepare our children.Notable quotes from the Episode:[14:04] "It's about surrounding yourself with people who not just share your values, but who have also invested in you and invested in your well-being."[19:39] "Pay yourself first."[38:36] “You know how to earn, you know how to save, or you know the ramifications of not doing some of these things. So you have experience that your child does not have.”Resources Mentioned:Connect with Wyatt Graves: LinkedIn | WebsiteThe Mentee Podcast: Website | Apple | SpotifyThe Richest Man in BabylonYour Kids, Their MoneyFree Kids' Money WorkbookConnect with Clifton Corbin: Instagram | LinkedIn | Website

For entrepreneurs, investments can help us reach our goals, make a profit, and grow our businesses. Learn to build good relationships with investors to create an investment fund.Dallon Schultz, President of REV Equity Group, shares his expertise in nurturing relationships and creating funds to invest in the business. How can investment and equity funds benefit us, our team, and our customers? What should we know to set up an investment fund?Tune in to the episode to learn more about investment funds and how to create one!Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation:Relationships can change your lifeSharing profit and getting investmentsStarting an investment fundThe importance of a securities attorneyAligning and connecting with your investorsEpisode Highlights:[09:06] Connecting the Investor With the DealMany successful entrepreneurs have the mindset of building and nurturing transformational relationships. REV Equity Group is a private investment firm that realized the importance of these relationships. Dallon and his team noticed a disconnect between investors and operators and saw the need to bridge this gap.[18:43] Getting Customers InvestedProfit sharing can get the team, consumers, and investors more deeply invested in the company. To do this, be aware that there are multiple layers. In most situations, you have more than one customer. Find what connects them, and remember to consult with a securities attorney before you raise capital.[29:46] The REV Equity FundREV's fund works in two ways. They can use the fund to buy shares in a company purchasing a property. Meanwhile, a tenancy-in-common structure is more of a partnership. They purchase a big percentage of the ownership.Their fund should generate enough profit interest to distribute to investors and hit their target returns. This works with multiple investments as REV underwrites the many deals that flow into the fund.[40:18] Setting Up Your Own FundStress test your ideas before you set up a fund. Ask your network for their insight. Having a fund involved in several unrelated things may deter investors. Consult with a security attorney. Often, they can provide ideas and suggestions to help set up your investment fund.Notable quotes from the Episode:[14:39] “We're bridging that gap between the investor and the operators.”[24:08] “Before you raise capital, consult with a securities attorney.”[35:16] “If we're bringing in half of the capital, we absolutely want to have more of an involvement and say in how that deal is operating.”Resources Mentioned:Connect with Wyatt Graves: LinkedIn | WebsiteThe Mentee Podcast: Website | Apple | Spotify VIP Private Mastermind EventMiddle Class to Millionaire by...

Is your mind your best friend or your worst enemy? All of us can get triggered. It's important to build your mental fitness so you can stay powerful even when you are feeling triggered. In this episode, mental fitness Jedi master Colin Thompson joins Matt as they discuss the three-step process to building your mental fitness. Pick up tools to improve your relationships while increasing your peace of mind. Once you're able to maintain a positive mindset regardless of what is happening in the world around you, the things that trigger you now will no longer trigger you. Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation: An introduction to positive intelligence What is mental fitness? The three-step exercise to build mental fitness The two choices that are not helpful: Fight or flight The power of the pause [09:53] What is Mental Fitness Physical fitness refers to your body's vitality and energy, and its ability to do things that you want to do. Then you build that up through nutrition, exercise, sleep, hydration, etc. Mental fitness is the exact same thing. But instead of the muscles in your body, you're working with the muscle in your head – your brain. You build your mental fitness by dealing with issues in your life – small issues, and then larger, larger, larger, larger ones over time. [18:24] The Three-Step Exercise to Build Mental Fitness 1. Be mindful of when you get triggered. As heat is building up, you have to be able to intercept your saboteur. 2. Pause and ask yourself what is the opportunity? How am I going to respond? Figure out how you can better manage the situation, such that nobody gets triggered. 3. Develop the ability to take the next positive step. As you change your behavior, the person who triggered you will change their behavior as well. This is not easy to do. But once you start building momentum, it's very powerful. [22:00] Finding the Gift/Opportunity in the Trigger The moment you find yourself being triggered, that's the moment when you can either respond to it or take a different action. When you're able to take that pause, you allow yourself to settle so you can figure out what you can do to make sure everybody is in a good mood. Notable quotes: [11:18] You build your mental fitness by dealing with issues in your life – small issues, and a larger, larger, larger, larger one over time. [11:27] [23:33] You can't handle more until you handle what's in front of you. [23:35] [31:34] When you have that pause, you're going straight into, "What can I do to make sure everybody's in a good mood?"

Let us tell you a bit more… This year, 2023, marks fifty years since Os Guinness published his first book back in 1973, “The Dust of Death.” It started what has become a prolific writing career for the well-known social critic. Today in our time with Os, we hope to introduce (or reintroduce) you to Os Guinness, and his profound contributions to discussions about freedom, culture, faith, and the quest for meaning and purpose. Stephanie and Os start by discussing Os' latest book, a truly brilliant, magnificent little gem for all of us to be inspired by, and titled, Signals of Transcendence. The modern world is a place of great distraction, and it can be difficult to make sense of our human existence. But at some point in our lives, we may experience particular moments that prompt us to search for something deeper. Sociologist Peter Berger described these hints and clues as “signals of transcendence” that awaken us to unseen realities. In Signals of Transcendence: Listening to the Promptings of Life, Os Guinness tells stories of people who experienced signals of transcendence and followed them to find new meaning and purpose in life. Notable figures such as Leo Tolstoy and C. S. Lewis as well as lesser-known individuals experienced a variety of promptings that signaled to them that life could not continue as they had thought. Through unsatisfied longings or disillusionments or glimpses of beauty or joy, these moments drew people toward epiphanies of transformation. And the same can be true for us, should we have the courage to follow the signals wherever they may lead. BONUS! READ A SAMPLE OF SIGNALS OF TRANSCENDENCE “I'm at a point in my life where I realize that there has to be more to life. Something must be missing.” This remark, made to me by a business leader in Silicon Valley, expresses what countless people come to see in their own way and say in their own words. Previously, they were mostly contented in some season of life; some were wealthy, successful, and even highly celebrated in one field or another. But they reached a point where they knew in their heart of hearts that none of it quite satisfied as they hoped. Who am I? Why am I here? What is life all about? Life raises such questions to all of us at some point, and certain experiences break into our lives that spur us to question whether our answers are deep enough, prompting a search for what we sense is missing—an unnamable something more. Life itself is extraordinary, and somehow, we all want to know what it is to live a worthy life, one that fulfills the promise of life. Peter Berger, the eminent social scientist, described the experiences that trigger such longings as “signals of transcendence”— arresting and intriguing experiences that both capture our attention and call for further explanation. The thrust of these signals points to some meaning beyond themselves, and they won't let us off the hook until we stir ourselves to find what it is. Such experiences puncture one's satisfaction with the status quo and push one to search for something beyond. The signals stir in us a sense that there must be something more to life, but what is that often unnamable something? In stirring us, signals of transcendence are a prompting by life itself, as it were. They trigger both a contradiction and a desire, and call into question the past, the present, and the future. They challenge the present and the past by contradicting the temptation to settle down and be satisfied. They challenge the future by spurring a desire to search for the something that is missing, that toward which the experience is hinting. In so doing, the signals lay bare some aspect of our human existence that we have forgotten or suppressed, at least partially— including things lost and left behind. Such aspects of a fuller and more complete reality must be rediscovered if life is to be lived to the full. Equally, an understanding of those aspects has to be grounded solidly if it is to be truly fulfilling. Hence the quest for faith and meaning triggered by the signals—the quest for meaning that is adequate and faith that is true. Follow the signals and discover more of the reality of who we are and what the universe and life are about; then our lives will be better aligned and more able to be free and fulfilled. Freedom, after all, is simply the ability to be who we are, to think freely, to speak freely, and to act freely. But who in truth are we, why are we here, and what is life about? The signal is power packed with the thrust of such questions.” (Taken from the introduction to Signals of Transcendence) MEET OS GUINNESS OS GUINNESS (DPhil, Oxford) has had a lifelong passion to make sense of our extraordinary modern world and to stand between the worlds of scholarship and ordinary life, helping each to understand the other—particularly when advanced modern life touches on the profound issues of faith. As a frequent speaker and prominent social critic Guinness has addressed audiences worldwide, from the British House of Commons to the US Congress to the St. Petersburg Parliament. He is a senior fellow at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics and was the founder of the Trinity Forum. Born in China to missionary parents, Guinness is the great-great-great-grandson of Arthur Guinness, the Dublin brewer. After witnessing the climax of the Chinese revolution in 1949, he was expelled with many other foreigners in 1951 and returned to England where he was educated and served as a freelance reporter with the BBC. Since coming to the United States in 1984, he has been a guest scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Studies and a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution. He was the lead drafter of the Williamsburg Charter, celebrating the First Amendment, and has also been senior fellow at the EastWest Institute in New York, where he drafted the Charter for Religious Freedom. He also coauthored the public-school curriculum Living with Our Deepest Differences.

You are the light, and you are here on Earth to light up the world. When you feel your very best, you're out in the world doing your best. It's only when you feel hurt that you could hurt others. Join this episode to learn about the journey your soul is taking through the darkness to remember who you really are. You'll learn rituals to increase your positivity and help you shine your light the brightest. Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation: The story of the little soul and the sun Remembering who we really are The role of negative thoughts and the ego The eight bad moods of the ego Rituals you can practice to make you feel good every day The power of meditation, prayer, & journaling [05:17] Remembering Who We Are We're walking through this world of darkness to remember who we really are. And who we are is not the pain and the hurt and the suffering and the darkness – who we are is the light. We can only know that light – love, joy, peace, forgiveness, and compassion – when we experience the opposite of it. When we get stuck in those bad mood emotions, we're like a magnet for more bad things and more things that attract circumstances that prove that those emotions are valid and worthwhile. So if we do things that are negative, we'll feel more negative. [17:23] Rituals to Make You Feel Good Be mindful that your brain is not you. Choose which thoughts you want to believe and which ones to pass on by. Limit the inputs that are negative. Eliminate the news. Watch positive shows. Unfollow people in your social media feed that make you feel bad. Stay away from things that trigger negative thoughts such as fast food, alcohol, pornography, and lack of sleep. Finally, feed your brain with positive inputs and make a list of the things that make you feel good. [25:29] The Power of Meditation, Exercise, Journaling, and Reading (1) Meditation allows you to separate yourself from the thoughts that your brain is giving you. (2) Journal - Write three things you did well the day before. Then write three things you're grateful for. Get super small on gratitude, whether that's your cup of coffee this morning or the electricity in your house. Then write down the top three goals in your life. (3) Read. Feed your brain with something positive. (4) Exercise - It's scientifically proven that if you exercise, you feel good. When you work out, you feel good about yourself and it increases your confidence. Notable quotes: [05:17] You are walking through this world of darkness to remember who you really are… You are the light. [05:30] [06:23] Humans have about 70,000 thoughts a day… how many do you think are positive and how many do you think are negative? [06:33] [23:41] Here's the truth. When you feel on top of the world, what can you accomplish? Anything!

Change is one of the few constants in life, and yet we often fear and resist it. As humans, our brains are hardwired for what we're used to, and when something unexpected pops up, our brains are triggered to protect us from potential harm. Change is inevitable, however, and it can be overwhelming for both businesses and individuals. Are you ready to become an active participant in change? Join me on the latest episode of Insight Out where I sit down with Marché Pleshette. Marché is here to help equip us with the tools to turn uncertainty into opportunity through change and will share her vast knowledge in the world of leadership and communication. We will explore Marché's insights on how to embrace change and use it to our advantage. We'll discuss the three zones of change: status quo, disruption, and adoption. We'll also look at historical examples of how change has been used to innovate and level up. Meet Marché Pleshette, Marché is a keynote speaker, facilitator, and leadership coach who has been at Franklin Covey as a consultant since 2008. She has taught many people how to infuse the philosophy of the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People into their life and business. She focuses on effective communication, leadership, professional change and transitions, employee engagement, and retention. She is the co-author of Franklin Covey's newest book, Change: How to Turn Uncertainty into Opportunity. Marché Pleshette was inspired to learn the competency of embracing change in order to innovate. She discovered that change is a process that requires support, understanding, and the ability to look around and see what is possible. She found that by understanding how to navigate change, leaders can help their team members to not be overwhelmed by it, but to use it as a tool to level up and become even more successful. With the right attitude, Marché realized that change can be embraced, rather than feared. Now, let's dive into the nitty gritty of change and how to use it to our advantage. In this episode we cover: How Judy Hendrix Influenced Marché to be a better facilitator, be a better presenter (00: 03:30) Why do we fear change and how can we learn to embrace change? (00:05:25) The three zones of change (00:09;20) How change has played such a pivotal role in how we've evolved (00:16:50) Why should we implement a paradox mentality into our everyday life and how? (00:20:20) How can leaders better understand and support people going through change? (00:21:38) How can we learn to embrace change and become active participants in it? (00:30:40) How do you then make the change when you realize a change has happened or it's happening (00:37:29) What is a commonly held belief about change that most people disagree with (00:43:28) Notable quotes: “You could either get owned by change or you could decide to own change yourself” - Billy “Change is constant, It's kind of an oxymoron. It's the one thing that is going to constantly happen” - Marché “If you're persistent, anybody will see you can get to a point that is greater than where you started” - Marché “Necessity is the mother of innovation” - Billy “Change is the mother of invention and history” - Marché "We have this clarity that change is truly a competency and if we could really get good at it, we'll volunteer for change." - Marché “If you have happy customers usually means you also have happy employees” - Billy Resources & Links: Marche's Website: extraoutcomes.com Marche on Social Media: https://www.linkedin.com/in/marchepleshette/ https://www.instagram.com/extraordinaryoutcomes/ https://twitter.com/MarchePleshette https://www.facebook.com/marche.barney Billy Samoa Saleebey LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/billysamoa Email: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com Loved this episode?

Everyone wants clarity, but they're not only seeking clarity out of confusion or because they're lost. It's because they crave more. They know they're meant for something more but need to learn how to get there.There is no better place to find clarity than at a Mastermind event with other people who are on the same path or, in some cases, have already been there.Deborah Cornella, Sales and Marketing Specialist, joins me to talk about finding clarity, getting out from being lost, and connecting with intentional people.Tune in to the episode to learn how to make intentional connections!Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation:Choose the five people you surround yourself withBeing called out has benefitsDon't rely on your fallbackKnow your blind spotEpisode Highlights:[7:04] Are You Looking for Clarity?When you feel lost, you look for clarity. But it's not just because of confusion — it's also because you want more than what you have right now. The best place to discover clarity is with people on the same path, journey, and in some cases, those who have already found it. If you are feeling lost, the fastest way to get out of being lost is to get in the room with people who aren't lost. [11:28] You Need to be Called OutTough comments help you grow. Being called out on your shortcomings can create an environment where everybody knows your stuff. Someone should call you out when you're hiding behind something or not doing something you should or could be doing.A good plan and idea aren't enough — you must follow through. Someone calling you out can help you pull the trigger on what you want to happen.[17:29] Stay Connected To Be Connected With Our GoalsYou have to connect to people to stay tethered to your vision and desired future self. You leave knowing someone who will hold you accountable.[24:55] You Can't Afford Not ToDon't fall into the trap of saying you lack time or will do something tomorrow. You should say, "I can't afford not to." Just do it. Stop making reasons about why you can't. Remember: you have to follow through.Notable quotes from the Episode:[10:13] “I knew that the fastest way to get out of being lost was to get in a room with people who weren't lost.”[15:43] “I took everything I learned there and everything I learned from the one thing and everything I learned from the previous Mastermind I've been in to ramp myself into the top producer within three months.”[33:35 ] "Just do it. Stop making up reasons and excuses about why you can't or why you won't."About the GuestDeborah Cornella works for Chiro One Wellness Centers as a Sales and Marketing Specialist.

Are you just going through the motions of life? Or are you living it to the fullest? It may be time to change your perspective. Going from a “have-to” to a “get-to” view is an eye-opening experience that can help you be intentional about the choices you make every day.In this episode, I discuss the difference between a “get-to” and a “have-to” perspective. I talk about how you can face the trials and tribulations required to Get-To the other side of this goal that you want, as opposed to the “have-to” perspective. Are you ready to change your perspective?Tune in to the episode to improve your life and learn how to be a “get-to” person!Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation:Changing your perspective from a “have-to” to a “get-to”.You always have the freedom to choose.Be intentional and purposeful.Your mindset may be holding you back from becoming your desired future self.Stop being reactive and start being proactive about what you do every day.Episode Highlights:[2:05] “Get-to” vs “Have-to”: Shifting Your PerspectiveThe distinction between “get-to” and “have-to” is a simple one to make. It's a tactic to shift the mindset and get more out of life. Behavior comes before motivation; action comes before motivation.Shifting your perspective from a “have-to” to a “get-to” is an excellent tactic to get you into action. Think about the things you get to do and be grateful that you get to do them.[4:26] Everything You Do is a ChoiceYou always have a choice in everything you do. Everything you're doing is a “get-to” option, a “get-to” behavior, a “get-to” activity. You don't have to do anything. That is when you have the decision to make. [8:24] The Fear That Life Will Come To An End Life will come to an end, and you will have regrets that you wished you had lived a different life. Make it a point to do it with passion and intentionality. Bronnie Ware, a hospice nurse, did research documenting the answers of her patients who were near death. Most people's biggest regret is not living the life they wanted instead of doing what they thought others expected of them.[11:07] There are Only Two Choices in Everything That You DoAsk yourself, "What if I didn't have to do it?" You have a choice in what we do. If you maintain a “have-to” attitude about it, then fear drives you, not faith. The choices you make are driven by fear or by faith.Notable quotes from the Episode:[2:20] “Behavior precedes motivation, or action comes before motivation.”[3:16] “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”[ 4:38] “By having this “get-to” perspective, you have a choice in every single thing that you do.”[10:16] “People are not living the lives that they intentionally want to live, they're living a “have- to” life instead of a “get-to” life.Resources Mentioned:Bronnie Ware: Regrets of the DyingConnect with Wyatt Graves: LinkedIn | WebsiteThe Mentee Podcast: Website |

Michael #1: Python Parquet and Arrow: Using PyArrow With Pandas Parquet is an efficient, compressed, column-oriented storage format for arrays and tables of data. Less wrangle-able than Pandas, but way faster and lower memory Questions answered Can we use Pandas DataFrames and Arrow tables together, and if so, how is this done? (It turns out the answer is yes, and it's quite simple, as we'll see). In what ways are Arrow tables “better” than Pandas DataFrames? In other words, for which tasks are Arrow tables better suited? Conversely, what tasks are possible or easy in Pandas that are difficult or impossible in Arrow? As an on-disk format, how does Parquet compare to popular alternatives such as feather, orc, CSV, etc.? Brian #2: FastAPI-Filter Arthur Rio Add query string filters to your api endpoints and show them in the swagger UI. The supported backends are SQLAlchemy and MongoEngine. FastAPI-Filter documentation The philosophy of fastapi_filter is to be very declarative. You define the fields you want to be able to filter on as well as the type of operator, then tie your filter to a specific model. default filters: neq, gt, gte, in, isnull, lt, lte, not/ne, not_in, nin, like/ilike The swagger support is actually quite cool. Michael #3: 12 Python Decorators to Take Your Code to the Next Level Decorators are awesome This is mostly home-grown decorators, but some standard ones too Notable ones: @warps @lru_cache @repeat @timeit @retry ← no please use tenacity @countcall @rate_limited @dataclass @register @property @singledispatch Brian #4: PyHamcrest Contributed by Txels PyHamcrest is a framework for writing matcher objects, allowing you to declaratively define “match” rules. PyHamcrest tutorial Having a tool that allows you to pick out precisely the aspect under test and describe the values it should have, to a controlled level of precision, helps greatly in writing tests that are “just right.” From Brian: I've been reluctant to try matcher style assertion helper libraries, as, with pytest, assert works just fine. However, I can see cases where PyHamcrest assertions could help test readability, and that's always a win. Examples: equality: assert_that(theBiscuit, equal_to(myBiscuit)) exceptions: assert_that(calling(parse, bad_data), raises(ValueError)) async: assert_that(``**await** resolved(future), future_raising(ValueError)) boolean: assert_that(theBiscuit.isCooked()) There's predefined matchers for objects, numbers, text, logical checks, dequences, dictionaries Extras Brian: pytest tips and tricks - recent post, and discussion on upcoming Talk Python episode sharing pytest fixtures - placeholder page where I'll share slides and code after my talk.

For this episode we have the accomplished filmmaker, Hamish Downie from Australia who is currently living in Japan for over 16 years. He joined us to share their creative journey, their opinions as a gay man in Japan and their future dreams. We begin with Hamish discussing how he got to Japan as he lived between Tokyo and Osaka. Then we continue to talk about the challenges in the Japanese mainstream film culture scene and LGBTQ+ genre which leads to Hamish introducing his film “Matcha & Vanilla''. A film highlighting the struggles and love of a lesbian couple in Japan, including the topics around classism, ageism and LGBTQ+ rights. He hopes that this kind of film can be enjoyed by Japanese audiences, as a way to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ stories, towards understanding and acceptance. Moreover, the discussion touched upon the importance of allies, media representation as a gay man, a daring drag experience, the continuous coming out stories, dream celebrity collaborations, and lastly ends with what they want to stand for, what they are grateful for and their favorite song. We hope you find time to check out his amazing films and reach out into his ongoing youtube channel and creative works. Hamish Downie is an Australian filmmaker based in Japan. Notable work includes the music video for Robyn Loau's single "Never Let You Down", and the multi-award winning short film, "An American Piano", which he wrote and produced, and was officially selected to screen at the TIFF Kids 2015 Festival. His debut feature film, "Matcha & Vanilla" starring Qyoko Kudo and Tomoko Hayakawa, is now streaming on Gagaoolala. And his first animated short film, "The Last Anomaly" is playing the festival circuit now. Also, every Friday, he posts a column on Japan called News Sushi, and interviews with creatives from all over the world (called 5 Questions With) on Arizona-based website "Two Gay Geeks", and has recently gotten some attention for his deep dives into Hollywood Golden Age stars on YouTube.

Your heart is calling to you now, and has been your whole life. When you tune in and listen to the callings of your heart, blessings follow. In this episode, Carolyn Rivers, founder and director of The Sophia Institute teaches how you can identify your own heart callings. Carolyn and Matt dive deep into the wisdom of the heart and how you can cultivate your heart's yearnings. Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation: How everything is sourced by love How a book sparked Carolyn's aha moment The more we follow our heart callings, the louder they get Ways to feed your soul Listening to what your heart is telling you [05:57] Following Your Heart Callings His Holiness, the Dalai Lama teaches that the mind is in the heart, not in the brain. The brain works with the heart but the wisdom of the heart is what's most important. The heart holds joy, and it holds love and wisdom. Scientists are now teaching us that even the cosmos itself is sourced by love. There's a feeling in our body when something is meant for us. The more we follow our heart callings, the louder they get and they lead us. Follow the threads of guidance that come through to you and you will always get enough. But you have to take things step by step. [19:10] A Balance Between Your Heart and Your Logic The heart is your starting place. Then you turn to logic and reason because that's how flow actually works. Both are needed, not just one. So you need to develop both within yourself. And as you do that, you become stronger, wiser, clearer, and more focused. You don't want either side to be dominant, so you have to choose both in partnership. [21:18] Listening to Your Heart You can feel love in your body. You can feel how every cell in your body tingles with energy when you've got that love sourcing through you. It's not just about romantic love, but about loving what you're doing. When you're in that flow of writing, or whatever it is you're doing, there's a lot of love that pours into yourself. When you listen to your heart, you can hear answers. It's not a thundering voice but it's the knowledge that rises up within you.

Being around successful people can be impactful and motivating. Building relationships can help you gain clarity, focus on your vision, and take action.Adam Eidson, Season 2 host for The Mentee Podcast, joins me to discuss the benefits of being part of a Mastermind class. Could this change your mindset and your direction for the year? How can getting into a relationship with outstanding individuals help you grow?Tune in to the episode to achieve your goals and connect with people better!Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation:Build relationshipsTake actionHave clarity and accountabilityGrow and be betterEpisode Highlights:[04:10] Take Action and Make Connections Geoff Woods used to run The Mentee. Back then, Geoff said, "Anybody, call me. If you call me, I'll help you." So Adam did, and Geoff answered. From there, they built a relationship and went on Mastermind weekends, where Adam learned to hone the skill of building relationships.[06:06] Add ValueGeoff invited speakers such as Ron Lynch, the marketing genius behind GoPro's remarkable growth from a $2 million to $150 million company in just two years. Adam found meeting these successful people enriching.[07:58] What is it I Want? Align your vision and goals. Losing track of your dream can happen; coaching can help you stay on course. Inner work requires reminding yourself of what you want. Accountability and clarity are essential for achieving success.[10:33] Transformational ChangeBeing around people who have achieved epic success can be inspiring. There is vulnerability and transparency; everyone aims to gain personal growth and learn from each other. The mastermind event is not about exchanging business cards but building relationships and adding value. The experience is not transactional but transformational, where you can be your true self.[13:15] Making the Best of My DayRon Lynch encouraged people to make the best of every day, like putting a coin in a slot machine, and to think about what they want others to say about them at their funeral. With these unforgettable stories, Adam highlights the importance of living a life with purpose.Notable quotes from the Episode:[08:04] “What is your vision? What are your goals? Stay aligned with your vision and goals.”[08:44] “It's easy to say, ‘I want a raise' or ‘I want to lose weight' but it's the inner work … it's reminding yourself, hey, what is it I want?”[12:04] “Don't go network. Build relationships.”Resources Mentioned:Connect with Wyatt Graves: LinkedIn | WebsiteThe Mentee Podcast: Website | Apple |

A Mastermind is an event for a small group of intentional individuals seeking to upgrade their lives and take “living the good life” to a whole new level. It helps bring clarity and leaves a significant impact on your point of view in life.Vadim Makhlis, a renowned entrepreneur, joins me to discuss what compelled him to attend a Mastermind and what he learned there. How will joining a Mastermind help you become wiser? Listen to this podcast to find out.Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation:A Mastermind can leave a significant impactFind clarity if you feel lostConsider what you did and did not doWe grow into the conversations around usHuman connections are best made face-to-faceEpisode Highlights[1:02] Introduction to the Mastermind Wyatt and Vadim met at the second Mastermind. Vadim returned for the second because the first had made such an impression on him. He'd been keeping an eye on Geoff because he was the host of The Mentee at the time.[2:50] Why Vadim attendedVadim had left the automotive industry to start another company that was only loosely related to the industry, but he found it “numbingly dull.” He felt a little lost after leaving a job that compensated him well.He began to listen to Geoff and attempted to find his way. Then Geoff said something about the Mastermind that Vadim knew he needed.[4:38 ] Money concernsVadim hesitated to join a Mastermind because of his finances, but a Mastermind was worth the price. What he learned made him his money back and more over the last five years.[7:16] A Mastermind forms small, intimate connectionsVadim believes everything is better done face-to-face, if and when appropriate and possible. That is how you make human connections.Many of these connections have brought Vadim tremendous value over the years. We grow into the conversations around us.Notable quotes from the Episode:[5:42] “I look back on the things that I applied, and then I looked back on those things I didn't apply. And how both of those things have made me money and whatever else over the last five years.”[7:18] “There was a lot of value in the things that I didn't apply, and then came to see the wisdom of what I had learned but didn't apply, and then applied it the next time.”[8:39] “Anything that's done is done better face to face… You just make human connections that way.”Resources Mentioned:Connect with Wyatt Graves: LinkedIn | WebsiteThe Mentee Podcast: Website | Apple |

A new year means it's time to set our goals. And as always, remember they come with challenges and setbacks we must face and overcome. So to achieve our goals entails becoming unshakable and having grit in the face of adversity. But what does it mean? How does one become unshakable? In this episode of the Mentee Podcast, I am sharing my thoughts on becoming unshakable. Listening to a podcast with Tony Robbins inspired me to engage in classes and discussions on the matter. I bring you the culmination of my thoughts on what it takes to be unshakable.Tune in to this episode to gain insights on achieving your goals.Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation:Be unshakable.Shape your environment towards your goals. Find the right mentor.Episode Highlights:[3:29] Gain Clarity to Create Necessary Forcing Functions Find clarity on your goals for the year and what matters most. Shape your environment towards them by taking action and creating forcing functions. Forcing functions are the things and situations that compel your initiative and willingness to engage in an activity. Steer them towards your goals and your values to be unshakable.[7:40] Forge the Right Relationships for YouThe people you choose to surround yourself with will affect your journey to reaching your goals. They could either hinder your progress or be of great benefit and support to you. You can choose and create forcing functions to find the right people. The best relationships to forge are finding mentors who have already achieved the goals you want for yourself. Notable quotes from the Episode:[2:24] “If you're unshakable, then you have grit.” [5:12] “Sometimes you have to just sign up.”[10:43] “Action leads to habits and habits create our futures.”[16:06] “Take action.

We all deal with some form of anxiety, and when you are feeling anxious please don't be hard on yourself. The key is to reimagine anxiety so you can start making positive changes rather than resisting it or battling it. In this episode, Neelma Pyfrom, owner of Living Lotus Life Coaching, shares her wisdom about how to reimagine anxiety so you can live your best life. Neelma and Matt dissect what lies beneath the anxiety so you can heal the root causes and liberate yourself. Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation: Why anxiety is very personalized The kind of self-care you want to do Anxiety is a form of fear Why feelings are neutral, not good or bad How to get out of fear How to use your phone in a calming way Embracing your “thought adventures” [04:22] Understanding Anxiety First, look at what triggers your anxiety – whether it's getting on a plane, being with a large group of people, or walking into a room full of strangers. How anxiety presents itself is different for everyone. Once you start to understand where your anxiety comes from and you're able to reorient the voice that tells you all those things that make you anxious, your confidence starts to build up. Take baby steps, reevaluate, pivot as needed, and figure out your next step to get to where you need to go. [12:13] Feelings are Neutral Feelings in and of themselves are neutral. Anger has the same "pH" as fear, sadness, happiness, etc. However, we tend to lean into the ones we like, avoid the ones we don't, and awareness is important. A lot of times, we don't know what we feel, or we don't know how to express it. But knowing what you're feeling helps you to know what you need. [20:03] How to Get Out of Fear Fear is energy that's getting you ready for a fight or flight. And it's all there is. But you have to learn how to use this energy in a positive way. Also, when you're in that state, that's where growth occurs. You have to go through it and not avoid it if you truly want to grow. The more you embrace fear, the more it gives you confidence. Notable quotes: [08:24] We have an internal voice that tells us we're not good enough. We need to reorient that voice… Tell it “You're not serving me.” That starts to build our confidence. [08:55] [04:40] Anxiety is very personalized... it's understanding the specifics of what our anxiety is and getting in touch with it. [05:03] [12:53] It's okay to have the feeling of anger... it has to spur us to action… that comes from responding mindfully and thoughtfully. [13:09] [13:47] Knowing what you're feeling helps you to know what you need. [13:50] Resources Mentioned: Connect with Neelma by calling 843-471-0395.

No one taught me how to be warm and nurturing. I had to figure that out on my own. No one taught me how to hold space and not try to fix someone's tears. I had to figure it out on my own.
