‘Genein, I can't take any more voice over powerpoints! This is having no long term effect on people's behavior around these DEI topics!” I heard this and I knew one reason why. If facilitators aren't tapping into people's emotional brain, there is no strong connection to the topic. Sitting in a 60 minute lecture you are not emotionally committed to means it goes in one ear and out the other. Especially if it is a topic that can put people in a defensive mode or a ‘I'm not engaged' mode. The neuroscience is clear. The hippocampus's decision to store memories hinges on two factors: emotional significance and previous knowledge for association. Emotion leads. Content follows. Connection leads. Learning (and then hopefully behavior change) follows. In this Diamond Mentor Moment, I'll discuss the importance of training, professional development and classroom learning that utilizes emotional imaginative strategies to teach difficult topics that bring about change. This new era of thinking needs new strategies of online and in person teaching. This new era needs Intercultural Creativity®. Join us!

A simple "meditation" to simply take a break from your day and sit in the middle of it. Notice and become aware of yourself in your surroundings. Would you drive through a beautiful landscape with the windows covered? We so often rush through a day and don't stop to experience the happenings of the moment. The sensations, the smells, temperatures, tastes, textures. Let's take a quick break together, right now. Free anxiety video series: https://www.scottstemarie.com/conqueranxiety
Mobility came on the fitness scene in large thanks to CrossFit. Perhaps you disagree or perhaps that is even untrue. But in 2011-2013 CrossFit was booming and thus came a large demand and need for mobility in the fitness industry. People like Kelly Starrett with Supple Leopard, and resources like ROMWOD mobility became more advisable than ever (from my experience and perspective). To my knowledge, mobility has been an important part of sports like weightlifting for decades. But was not as aggressively integrated into general strength training. Here's the deal, mobility is, in short, your active range of motion. This is in contrast to flexibility which is your passive range of motion. Sitting in the middle splits is your passive range of motion, while sliding down into and back out of the middle splits is your active range motions. Can your muscles get you into and out of your end ranges? As you can imagine from these definitions, flexibility is the potential for mobility. For instance if you can't get there passively, then you more than likely won't be able to get to or past that point actively. Why does all of this matter for putting on muscle and/or gaining strength? I am guessing you'll have more questions after listening to this podcast than when you came into it. But I don't think that's entirely a bad thing. I will do my best to keep it clear and concise, providing disclaimers where needed. I say that because this is not black and white. So, stay curious, and keep context in mind as we move forward. For starters, it comes down to muscle fiber recruitment. One could think of range of motion as the practical use of mobility within weight lifting. Range of motion is simply the distance traveled from start to finish of an exercise. Are you lowering all the way down in pull ups, are you squatting ass to grass? These would be considered FULL range of motion (or ROM). I hope you can see that if you lack mobility in a given area, you may be limiting your potential range of motion in a given lift. This is not the end of the world, most people have mobility restrictions and can still put on plenty of muscle. I don't wish to scare you or over complicate this. Why does range of motion matter for strength or hypertrophy? We answer these questions because they CAN BE connected. Muscle mass is the potential for strength. Muscle is the how the body will eventually demonstrate strength (force production). So now we ask how we build muscle. As discussed on many episodes, there are three main factors - being mechanical tension (this is most important), metabolic stress, and muscle damage. We will be thinking about mechanical tension and maybe muscle damage. For a muscle to contract, muscle fibers are recruited. Number of muscle fibers recruited and strength of a contraction are positively correlated. Meaning more fibers = higher contraction. This is what we are after both for strength and hypertrophy. That is also where range of motion comes in. Within range of motion, the muscle is lengthening - this is known as the eccentric phase. That means the shortening phase only has to contract within the range the muscle was lengthened. That also limits the fibers which are recruited. More range of motion has the potential to mean MORE FIBERS recruited. And that means more potential mechanical tension and muscle damage. Ideally, with proper load, recovery, and diet, muscle cell growth or strength gains. Think about body building and the idea that they want to stress a given muscle from as many angles as possible. The literal point of this is to maximize motor unit recruitment and fatigue. The same applies here. More range of motion or improved range of motion could mean more fibers working. Remember I said this was not black and white. Just using full range of motion in the absence of a load challenging enough to stimulate the muscles is not going to equate to more muscle or strength.

On the last episode I shared some personal feelings I was experiencing that I can only describe as the "Post" Covid Blues. A lack of drive, joy , and overall motivation to attack life. I knew that it was temporary but at the same time meaningful. Now that I am on the other side of this mental state I can share some perspective on not only what I was dealing with but more importantly how to get out of it. I realized I was falling in to the trap of trying to keep up with everyone's highlight reel on their social media. Somehow I wasn't doing enough in my business, comedy and overall ability to crush life. I felt that whatever I was doing, watching or enjoying was somehow the wrong thing which left me an overwhelming sense of missing out. The key to eliminate this was to disconnect from the source of my FMO. Turn off and tune out the noise. The next step was to reconnect with positive people in my life and enjoy the simple things. I took my kids to San Diego and spent 4 days surfing with my pal Robert Yang and eating burritos till my belly burst! I got to teach Fitness Level 3 for TPI and meet a ton of enthusiastic superstar trainers and helped them enhance their skills. Just being in the ocean and doing what I was put on this earth to do, recharged my batteries. Sitting on the beach watching the waves break made me realize that each wave that broke was one that I could have rode but somehow didn't feel like I was missing out. This is because it was replaced by another wave and another wave. Even when I slept the waves kept pounding the beach at Swami's like it had since the beginning of time and will till the end. Just like the opportunities I thought I "missed" during Covid. No need to catch up, double down or grind to get back where I was. Just enjoy the wave I am on and ride it to the beach. And then paddle back out and do it again. Need guidance and mentorship to help you accomplish your DreamBIG?

In episode 122, Roger Butts helps us explore how we can create space for those sitting in suffering. Having served as a Chaplain and Minister, he has often chosen to journey with individuals in incredibly hard spaces, including on the cusp of death. He's learned how much we can bring to the table in those moments -- how distracting and even destructive that can be -- and how each of us actually has the capacity to care for others, no matter our situation. Each of us can create space. How has God invited you to create space for others?

https://trustthedivine.com/ Divine Trust A Practical Guide to End Suffering and Find Your Way Home By Dr. Nancy Wiley Dr. Nancy Wiley's Simple Method to Deepening Your Trust in the Universe's Orchestrating Power…to Eliminate Worry, Increase Your Sense of Safety and Perceive The Benevolent Divine Intention Behind Every Circumstance Living Without Suffering is Achievable! How lovely would it be to always feel that you are protected, safe, loved and that everything is unfolding to support you? There wouldn't be any worry, anger, frustration, misery, guilt, shame or any of the other negative emotions, suffering and mind loops that disturb your sense of peace, gratitude, success, wonder and love. Having a permanent, ultimate safety net is a delicious concept! And one that you can have right now! That's the message and the method in Dr. Nancy Wiley's gem of a book, Divine Trust, A Practical Guide to End Suffering and Find Your Way Home. By surrendering to Divine Trust, you can weather any or all of life's storms with a peaceful grace that helps you over the peaking waves, and the knowledge that you are held in divine hands—that everything is happening for you, or at least for a reason that will reveal itself to strengthen or awaken you. But even IF you are aware of this concept—how do you get there? How do you stop trying to control everything and surrender into or embody Divine Trust? That's where this book comes into play. Dr. Nancy gives some simple strategies that enable you to embrace your Divine Trust and to be receptive to the messages that are yours to hear in that open state. Dr. Nancy has lived in this state for many years, but the urgency of sharing this message accelerated for her in February, 2018. A highly respected orthodontist in Florida, the shocking loss from the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland – including one of her patients and others close to her and in the community—made her realize that in the depth of their grief, a Divine Trust could help her community ease their pain and suffering. Acceptance and surrender to Divine Trust, even in the face of something seemingly horrific, can provide greater or even profound peace. It's an accelerated path to healing. Trusting the Divine Power during challenging or even peaceful times, enables people to “Snap Back to their original Essence, knowing without a doubt they are Presence.” (Divine Spirit). “Sitting in Divine Trust takes me home every time,” says Dr. Nancy. More importantly, she has achieved the state of living without suffering and can guide you there as well! With a foreword by luminary Marci Shimoff, Divine Trust is a guide to “Snap Back” as Dr. Nancy says, into your recognition as part of the Divine Presence, afloat in the vast Sea of Awareness. Raised in a very traditional Catholic home, a sociology of religion class in college soured Nancy on faith, maintaining there was no God. It was only when she was at Columbia University in a combined dental/medical course that she suddenly saw the workings of God (or a Divine Intelligence) in the complexity and elegance of the human anatomy, that she experienced an epiphany—her personal “Snap Back.” That drove her to seek more, to begin a life-long meditation practice, and study with various teachers in a variety of disciplines including Reiki, Feng Shui, Spring Forest Qigong and more. Now having left her orthodontic practice after 27 years, she has dedicated herself to igniting a massive shift in human consciousness, using Divine Trust as the cornerstone.

And I said, okay, my one bedrooms, I'm going to be able to raise the rent 150 bucks a door. My two bedrooms, 250 bucks a door. That's pretty conservative.

Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. [00:00:35] Sam Wilson: Mike Moraski is an entrepreneur author, real estate trainer, a public speaker and personal coach with strong personal resilience and a deep desire to help others live extraordinary lives. Mike welcome to the show. [00:00:47] Mike Morawski: Hey Sam, thanks for having me back [00:00:49] Sam Wilson: Hey man, it's a pleasure. It's absolutely a pleasure. You came on this show. This was episode 197, which I can't believe it's been that long, but that was published June 14th, 2021. So by the time this airs, it'll probably be [00:01:03] Mike Morawski: almost a year. [00:01:05] This one going to be? [00:01:06] Sam Wilson: I have no idea. It'll be somewhere 520-550. We just put them all in the, I don't know, they go in the queue, man. I'm not the one that handles that on my team, but yeah, it'll be somewhere in that neighborhood, but it's awesome to catch back up. I ask every guest who comes in the show. [00:01:22] So just in case our listeners didn't get a chance to listen to that episode. First in 90 seconds or less, tell me where you started, where you are now and how [00:01:29] Mike Morawski: you got there. Absolutely. I started in real estate sales, selling hundreds of houses. I went into the apartment business, built a hundred million dollar company through a syndication and a property management company. [00:01:44] I lost everything as a result of the 2008 debacle wound up on a 10 year federal prison sentence, serving eight of those 10 years behind a wall. And today I'm home in the coaching and training business. Teaching people, how not to make those same mistakes, how to live a balanced quality lifestyle and increase their business profitability and bottom line. [00:02:07] Sam Wilson: And for those of you, again, if you haven't gone back or you haven't heard Mike story, it's a good one. So go back and listen to his story. I don't think he holds anything back, which we certainly appreciate. I know it's a humbling story for you to tell, but it's also a story of redemption and yeah, I think it's a great story. [00:02:24] So appreciate you always being so vulnerable and sharing that. So [00:02:26] Mike Morawski: what I want to say though about that, Sam is I do share that story openly and vulnerably. I believe that there's hope and inspiration in my journey. And I also believe that there's lessons to be learned in this success, the loss and the redemption. [00:02:41] Right. So listen, none of us should allow our future to be dictated by our past. Don't look in the rear view mirror, look out the windshield and [00:02:49] Sam Wilson: move forward. Yeah. And nobody can drive a car, looking out the rear view mirror. That's a bad way to get down the road. When you say lessons in success that you share with your coaching clients, what does that term even mean? [00:03:01] Mike Morawski: Lessons in success. You know, I think that there's success in the failure. Right? Cause it's not that I failed. It's not that I lost everything. I just learned a different way of not doing something. Right. If you take a look at Thomas Edison, when he created the light bulb, you know, the comment is, Hey, I just learned 10,001 ways that it wasn't going to work. [00:03:21] Right. So I kind of look at it the same way. I built a heck of a big business. I built it really fast over leveraged under capitalized and very unstable. And if you can, as an entrepreneur, get your arms around those three things and then pay attention to the details and listen to people around you. I think as an entrepreneur, you can knock it out [00:03:45] Sam Wilson: of the park for yourself. [00:03:46] What do you see if any correlation between 2008 and where we are now in the market? [00:03:55] Mike Morawski: You know, I see a lot of similarities. I see some edginess in the banking industry where they're starting to float some loan programs out there. You know, I had something come across my desk the other day that said, Hey, 85 to 90% LTV on your $5 million multifamily deal. [00:04:16] And I thought to myself, man, you guys should be put out of. I honestly thought that. That was the first thought that went through my mind. And because that was one of the things that got me in trouble, I had $60 million worth of real estate that I was over leveraged on. I don't think anybody should be buying a piece of real estate in today's environment unless they're 65 to 70% loan to value. [00:04:40] If you are chasing rents right now and raising rent rates at unprecedented underwrite. Stop it go back and take a look at, you know, be conservative. This market's going to change. There's going to be a shift. You know, I see a lot of people growing really fast, buying big assets for lots of money and buying multiple assets for lots of money. [00:05:04] One of the things that caught me was I grew too fast. This is a marathon. It's not a. And I think that if you're not looking at those things, you know, there's going to be a change in the housing market. We're going to see foreclosures appear. Like we haven't seen them in the last seven or eight years, but they're coming back. [00:05:24] I have some friends that are. In that space in the residential foreclosure space attorneys that deal with the banks. And there is a backlog right now. So when they open these flood gates, there's going to be some challenges. Will it affect the commercial real estate space? Like it did last. You know, Sam, I don't know, but last time I didn't think it was going to affect the commercial real estate space either. [00:05:48] Sam Wilson: Yeah, I'm with you. There's a lot of obviously uncertainty. A question I always like to ask guests on the show is what's something you're curious about and more often than not. And I probably don't ask it as much anymore because the answer is always like, I'm just curious and is, you know, what's going to happen with all of this. [00:06:04] I mean, we've printed just an unbelievable amount of money. So obviously asset prices are rising. Inflation is going nuts. I mean, where does this end? And you can listen to two schools of thought. There's one school of thought that says, Hey, we have a massive crash and we have massive deflation. And there's the other school of thought that says no, just to be runaway inflation. [00:06:20] Like neither one of them is good. Nobody's saying, oh, there's a bright rosy future ahead. So, you know, that's not the story I'm hearing from either camp, but I'm really curious for you. What are you guys doing? Cause you mentioned here, you know, growing really fast, was it maybe a mistake you guys had made you were over levered, the high LTVs bad loans, you know, loans that were written with terms that no one could comply with, unless everything just went along perfectly. [00:06:44] What are you guys doing right now to make sure that your protected [00:06:48] Mike Morawski: underwriting conservatively. Let me give you an example. We just bought a deal in Tampa, Florida, 40 units. We actually closed down it, you know, a couple of months ago. One of the things in our underwriting process was I did not want to come out with these extravagant numbers. [00:07:03] Like we were going to hit 20% on investor's IRR with a 12 or 15% cash on cash return. Right. I think those numbers are. The sponsors that are putting that stuff out today, need to pull back on the reins. I just did a passive webinar where we brought some investors in, you know, we had about 80 people online and I said, look, I said, one thing that I'm very conscious of today is how do we look at these numbers? [00:07:30] Spreads. I think as an investor, you should be looking at six to 8% cash on cash return. And you should be looking at a 13% higher if you're seeing stuff that's higher than that, I'd really be concerned because I think the market's going to change so much that it's going to cause instability. Sam, you said it hit the feds, just raised interest rates. [00:07:49] Again yesterday you got gas. That's at seven bucks a gallon on the west coast. It's at five bucks a gallon in the middle. You got bread and milk and eggs that are more money and you can't get lumber fast enough. Right? Where's the market going to go, but here's what I'll tell you. On the other side, how do you hedge against that? [00:08:06] Well, if you're an investor and you're looking for an investment, be in rent growth products. Because I conservatively underwrote this deal in Florida. And I said, okay, my one bedrooms, I'm going to be able to raise the rent 150 bucks a door. My two bedrooms, 250 bucks a door. That's pretty conservative considering my property manager. [00:08:26] Is just whipping units now at double there. So anybody who got involved in that deal is going to see a much better return on investment that changed the numbers to like a 20% higher or it's just silly money. [00:08:41] Sam Wilson: It's silly money. And I guess the idea is that you underwrite it. In the potential worst case scenario, I guess that's what I'm hearing. [00:08:51] Cause know, Hey, if you promise investors a 6% cash on cash and that's what you delivered. Okay. You know, no one can get upset, but if you promised them 15 and you gave him six, then everybody's upset. I mean, is that the idea behind that? Or is there. [00:09:05] Mike Morawski: Yeah. I'd like to under promise and over deliver for sure. [00:09:08] And does that mean that I'll get as many investors as fast as I possibly could if I was promising a 20% sure because people are still of the old school, but I have friends that have been in the business 25, 30 years. Doing the same thing and they've pulled back so far right now, you know, I got one buddy, they're raising capital and they're paying their investors of 5% preferred return. [00:09:34] And that's it. No equity in the deal. So as an investor, they're going out to the hedge funds. They're going out to the pension funds and they're bringing capital in and they're paying a 5%, no equity in the deal. And they're doing 50% debt, 50% equity. So when you do the math like that, you say, wow, we could probably deliver a better product, a better return. [00:09:56] And of course, those are, you know, A-class products, fresh bill cost a little bit more money, but you can buy this product. Now, when you have those types of terms in your equity investors, there's just safety in that. [00:10:09] Sam Wilson: There really is. That would be for a capital raiser. That would be amazing if I could find capital that just wanted a 5% preferred return, no equity. [00:10:18] That sounds like, you know, monster institutional money that is just desperately seeking yield more than our everyday investors, maybe that you and I [00:10:26] Mike Morawski: work with. Yeah, for sure. And then what you can do is you don't have to. Play around with your exit cap rate, right? I mean, you can say, okay, so if this deal trades out at six in seven years from now, I'm okay. [00:10:39] Right, right. Because if the market shifts enough because to try and keep cap rates compressed at two and 3% right now, You might find yourself in a tough spot, come five, six years from [00:10:49] Sam Wilson: now. Well, that's exactly right. I mean, there's the argument, the cap rates, regardless of where interest rates go, there's this argument that cap rates will still stay low. [00:10:58] Even if the cost of capital is greater than what you're going in. Cap rate is because they have the potential to value add they have the potential to raise rents. They can do all this stuff that will then inflate that cap rate, obviously to a number that makes sense upon stabilizing. If I even said that correctly, and if I didn't, you can get on here and send me a snide remarks on YouTube. [00:11:18] You know, even with that, there comes that other market dynamic that I think people are missing, which is can the people afford the higher rent. Can they afford the per square foot price in a building? That's more, I mean, at some point, if the economy takes a complete bath, people just, aren't going to have the liquidity to go out and just keep paying a 20% annualized ramp up. [00:11:40] Does that sound fair? [00:11:41] Mike Morawski: And that's what happened to the US. Last time jobs got lost businesses got closed. People moved home, people moved out, they doubled. My occupancy dropped. My NOI ran wild off the chains and I couldn't pay my bills. And we went back with some deals, mitigated with the banks, got lower interest rates, got principal knocked off, you know, and it still wasn't enough and couldn't do it on every deal. [00:12:06] But we tried on a few animals. Testing the water. It didn't even work. Then this goes back to, you know, if you've got a cap rate on a deal right now, that's a terminal cap and you've projecting, you're going to get out of this deal in six years at a three or a four. And that thing runs wild and you're at a six and five years from. [00:12:25] You're screwed. Right. You know, so except for the guys that stood by and said, Hey, you know, I'm going to buy some of this stuff when it goes crazy again. Right. [00:12:34] Sam Wilson: Right. Which is another option. It's tough. I'll tell you. It's really tough to sit with. I call it dry powder, have dry powder on the sidelines, especially when we're watching the value of that dry powder. [00:12:46] Just dissipated at incredible. Great, you know, year over year, what publishing 7% now, which I think is the fraudulent number. Anyway, it's probably north of 10 to 15. And if they're being really honest on an inflation rate, so that's tough to do, you know, to hold capital, you guys taking that approach on anything. [00:13:02] Mike Morawski: Yeah. You know, I'm not a real advocate on sitting [00:13:05] on capital on the sidelines. I think you should. It doesn't work for you on the sidelines. I think that there's ways to deploy it, to make it work for you. But, you know, I'm of the opinion that you have to, you know, keep your capital at work at a quarter of a percent or a half a percent even taking advantage of the overnight swap. [00:13:25] You can't make any money down. Yeah, [00:13:27] Sam Wilson: what have I heard? What did somebody tell me once it scared money? Don't make no money this right. I think that's what you're telling me here. Mike, tell me about something that you are currently excited about. We've talked kind of doom and gloom, worst case scenario. [00:13:42] What's something you go, man. I'm pumped about [00:13:43] Mike Morawski: this summer in the city, Sam. I live in Chicago, summers coming, nothing like a bike ride on the lakefront. Nice hot summer day in the sun, watching the boat. [00:13:55] Sam Wilson: That sounds great. Chicago is one of my favorite cities, especially there, along the lake shore. That's a pretty place to be. [00:14:00] Mike Morawski: She come out, hang out one weekend and we'll find some fun things to do [00:14:04] Sam Wilson: for sure. Absolutely. We can get into a lot of trouble there in Chicago. Tell me on a business front, what's something that you're looking forward to that you said, man, this is an initiative we're undertaking. Or this is maybe somewhere we see, you know, good opportunity. [00:14:18] Mike Morawski: Yeah. You know, I told you when we jumped on this morning that I'm getting my arms around this again, and you know, I'm raising capital to do deals and, you know, I had another investor make a commitment this morning and that excites me right now because I've been out of the game for a while. But now back in the game, Helping other people grow their multifamily business and then partnering with them as well. [00:14:42] It's just been a great venture for me to get back into. Like my one buddy says to me all the time he goes, man, I know you're going to knock it out of the park. And you know, that's not the objective or the goal, the objective. And the goal is really to help other people grow. And for them to knock it out of the park, Zig Ziglar always said that if you help enough other people get what they want, you'll ultimately get what you. [00:15:06] But for me, the exciting thing is to raise capital today. And you know, my goal this year is to raise a couple million dollars in capital and buy another 500 units for our group to push the envelope forward a little [00:15:17] Sam Wilson: bit this year. I love it. Mike, thank you for taking the time to come on today. I don't know if we got a chance last time to chat about your book. [00:15:25] I think that's behind you. Exit plan is your book. Isn't it. [00:15:28] Mike Morawski: I wrote exit plan because everybody, all the trainers and coaches, some great trainers and coaches in the marketplace that I've learned from, even everybody teaches you how to buy a deal, find a deal, get in a deal, operate it. Nobody teaches you how to get out. [00:15:43] Nobody teaches you where to maximize your. Your guests could go download a free copy of that book. They can go to my website at mycoreintentions.com/free and grab a copy of Exit Plan. There's a couple other things out there that they could explore Multifamily Fundamentals. And if you're a passive investor, 27 Must Ask Questions of a sponsor, jump in. [00:16:08] It's a great game. It's really growing and I don't see any reason to not stay really connected and involved over the next several years. [00:16:18] Sam Wilson: I love it. Mike, if our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you, what is the best way to do that? [00:16:22] Mike Morawski: Track me down on social media. For sure. I hang out on LinkedIn, Instagram, any place you get your fix. [00:16:29] That's where I'm at. And always trying to throw some great content up there. Even somebody even said to me the other day, man, I can't believe you're even on ticket. But direct message me. I love to network, so message me there, or send me an firstname.lastname@example.org. [00:16:44] Sam Wilson: I love it. Yeah. You're absolutely active on LinkedIn, which is where I spend most of my time. [00:16:49] I'm always like, man, there's Mike again. He's always putting something out there so, well, I certainly appreciate it. Outro: Thank you again for your time, Sam, you have a great day. Thanks.

Can a nonprofit achieve transformative policy change in these politically volatile times? It may feel impossible but the answer, as demonstrated by the Greenlining Institute, is a resounding yes. It was founded in 1993 to tackle the wealth-stripping impacts of redlining, the deliberate practice of discrimination and disinvestment by banks, insurance companies and government agencies against communities of color. Sectors that mapped out which communities to exclude from the possibility of owning a home or starting a business, based on race and ethnicity, are now at the table with Greenlining, hearing directly from impacted community members. The Greenlining Institute is reimagining California, and our nation, as a place of shared opportunity and power. Its staff of data experts and advocates are laser focused on making the economic, energy, environmental and technology sectors more just. But their direction comes from a coalition of community-based groups, from faith leaders to housing and childcare providers and small business advisers who set the agenda and shape the solutions. Debra Gore-Mann, the incomparable president of Greenlining, brings unstoppable energy, expertise, and lived experience to changing institutions, systems and behavior.
No matter how long we've been working at something or how much money we make, doubts will creep in and times of uncertainty will come. But we must learn to listen to that little voice inside that guides us. Tuning into the wisdom of that inner voice, as well as listening to the wisdom of others will fuel us with resolve to carry on.

In episode 121, Diana Winkler shares a story of suffering that spans decades, and in the process presses us into the concept of "long-suffering". Bible translations often swap this term out for "patience", but the former evokes something deeper, something prolonged, something intentional. In fact, it's a fruit of the Spirit, and we learn from Diana it was the Spirit's capacity, not hers, that got her through, particularly when the Church and her spouse failed to be the support she longed for.

Episode 210 - The DrumheadHaving missed our very fun 4/20 viewing of Qpid, Warped regular minwin is back as we celebrate Matt's birthday in these next two episodes. Happy birthday, Matt! You're truly a gem and we wouldn't be who we are without you. We're also joined by regular guest May.The crew talk about their love for the Escape Room and (somewhat surprisingly) the Saw movie series. We then get lost in this episode's talented guest actor, Gene Simmons, and her possible relation to a famous tongue.But it's down to business when Star Trek court room antics heat up the screen. There has never been a more thorough examination of the sitting devices in a Star Trek episode than that performed by the Warp crew. And it is, much like the early Saw movies, also surprisingly entertaining. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Melissa's story is a great example of how a trip to Israel can be a springboard for your faith and personal Bible study. Perhaps most inspirational is her challenge to loosen our grip on our passions and plans. It's so easy to get carried away with doing things "for Jesus" that we lose focus on the fundamentals of following and obeying Him.

In this episode, we are joined by Michael Alcée as he shares how shifting the mindset helps with the productivity of a person. He acknowledges here that planning ahead helps with getting things actually done, but beating ourselves up for not being able to meet certain self-made demands or rules makes us less efficient. He likens embracing every part of our identity to sitting down at a round table and speaking with every different facet of our personality, the parts we need, the parts we would like to change, and also acknowledging the parts that shouldn't even be invited to the meeting. Also, Michael discusses how this embrace of the self helps with making relationships healthy, from the vulnerabilities to the contradictions, makes us truly human and acknowledging these different parts further helps us communicate as our true selves and make relationships so much easier. More to learn about this theme in this episode so be sure to stay tuned! In this episode, you'll learn: ● Sitting at the table with parts you don't want to talk to ● Learn your own learning style ● Why to be human is to be contradictory ● Telling your partner about how your system works ● Appreciating every creative experience ● And many more!

An Example of a Great Personal Brand Molly is a great example of what it is like to have a solid personal brand. She represents herself and her business in an authentic way. Molly doesn't try to fit into the box of social media norms but instead represents herself genuinely to differentiate herself. Before posting anything on social media, Molly thinks to herself, is this how I want people to remember me? It's a great way to keep your content consistent, valuable, and professional. Surrounding yourself with the right people for strength It is really important to surround yourself with the right people, those who are willing to tell you what you need to hear. This is especially true when we have to pivot as a result of circumstances and we find ourselves lost, overwhelmed, or unhappy. Likewise, we all need someone to help us move from a place of victim mentality and self-pity to take action on our strengths and passions. Others often see things In you that you don't see in yourself When opportunities come to you that seem uncomfortable or impossible, it doesn't mean you can't do it. Molly shared her mindset shift, which is so empowering. Instead of looking at the impossible, that you don't know how to do something, reframe the mindset to, I don't know how to do it yet. That little three-letter word can make a world of difference in how you navigate opportunities in life and business. You can always learn new skill sets. Remembering that you can't have it all will help you have a positive entrepreneurial mindset Having it all looks differently at different points in our lives. It becomes about making choices, what is important for you and your life? Similarly, what matters most to you and what are you willing to sacrifice? The reality is, you can't have it all, all of the time. You have to prioritize and make choices. Look at your choices as sacrifices or freedoms. The latter is going to help you have a positive mindset around your lifestyle and business. As a mom, her choices are for herself or her two daughters. She is a great example for her daughters because she shows them that no matter what happens in life, you can make the best out of it. If your life doesn't turn out how you thought it would, you are still whole, still you, and can still have your priorities in place. As a mom and entrepreneur, you get to choose your priorities and go all in, in the moment you are in. This is how you can avoid burnout. Remembering that you can't have it all, all of the time, but you prioritize and do your best in each moment. Note, that living this way will help you avoid guilt and shame when you can't be fully present in other moments. Mindset and negativity bias Our human brains, naturally, navigate toward negatives. If we have a negative experience and we don't flip the conversation in our minds, the negative will take over and influence every aspect of our lives. Sitting in a place of fear and negative thoughts will not lend to a positive entrepreneurial mindset. Being able to fear less for a positive entrepreneurial mindset Courage isn't the absence of fear, it is taking action despite the fear. Fear can't be avoided, but we can fear less. You can define what fear is for you, as Molly did, and not let it define you. Fear is looking at the experience from the worst-case scenario. Excitement is looking at the experience from the best-case scenario. You can make fear your friend instead of trying to become fearless. You can work to fear less and make fear your friend. Think of fear as a choice, to let it take over your life and hold you back, or use it to propel you forward. Overcoming the fear of being in front of the camera The impact that video has, others seeing and hearing you, is incredible. The more you start putting yourself out there, the more trust you'll build. Practice is the key. Molly used the example of the videos people send her. People will send a short video of themself talking about their business and they appear uncomfortable or stiff. So, she'll ask them to send her a video talking about their family, travel, or pets and their passion shows through, they are more expressive, lean into the camera, and smile more. It's important to keep the momentum of the second video when talking about your business. This energy is what will resonate with your audience. Whatever sets you apart, like talking with your hands, go all in. Robyn shared that when she talks about her passions, her excitement comes through. And what helped her was not scripting everything. When not trying to follow a script, you are more relaxed and your message comes across more. We connect as humans when we are real and share more than our business, but our lives and the behind-the-scenes. The entrepreneurial mindset and navigating what other people think, say, and feel about us Our personal brand is what other people think, say, and feel about us. However, when online, on social media, fear of what other people think, say, and feel about us can hold us back. The entrepreneurial mindset can be influenced and worsened by trolls and naysayers on social media. Before you take a post down or stop doing something, think about these things. Be smart about with whom you share your dreams and visions. If you go to the wrong person who is not your target audience, they may not understand and will give you a lukewarm response or discourage you. Ask yourself if the naysayer or person criticizing you in your area of expertise. Do they understand the field you are in that you should take their input seriously? Don't' let other people's limitations be reflected on you. Often times the trolls and keyboard warriors are responding negatively because your content hit a nerve with one of their insecurities. Negativity will kill dreams. Likewise, everyone needs to be able to take constructive criticism. Two additional thoughts that Robyn had on this topic, Respond kindly in a way that is not defending yourself and is not open-ended to lend to bantering back and forth. If the person responding and questioning your integrity or expertise is in your area of expertise, remember that every experience you've had gives you an advantage. Instead of letting them shut you down, remember that your gifts, experiences, and talents are the things that are going to attract your clients to you. Be sure that these naysayers don't instill more fear and hold you back. Curious about how mindset influences building a successful business?

We've all heard by now that sitting is the new smoking. Excess sitting has been linked to a host of health issues that currently plague modern society. So it comes as no surprise that obesity is linked to sitting as well. Our modern lifestyle has unfortunately created an environment that is more sedentary in comparison to the not so distant past. So what can we do to reduce this risk? To give us actionable tips, we invited Matt Pearle to the show. Matt is the author of Athlete in the Game of Life, and he shares how detrimental sitting is and how we can get more movement in our daily life.

The word filibuster has a long and colorful history, going back to the days when pirates roamed the high seas. Today it refers to hijacking a piece of legislation. Plus, the language of yoga teachers: When doing a guided meditation, you may hear your instructor speaking in a kind of continuous present, with phrases like Sitting comfortably and Breathing deeply instead of the simple imperatives to Sit comfortably and Breathe deeply. These are participles with a purpose, and linguists have a term for it: the politeness progressive. Finally, why CAN'T you have your cake and eat it, too? Also: Book it!, the language of falconry, acronames, how to pronounce brooch,0, at loggerheads, a brain-teasing game for science fans and another one for gardeners, and the many meanings of hickey.
