In this episode, I will discuss:

  1. The misconception between self-worth and self-esteem
  2. Why self-worth provides more happiness
  3. How to grow your self-worth physically and emotionally

Episode #064 - The Power of "Why Not?"

WELCOME TO EPISODE #064 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Our natural tendency in life is to play it safe, do what's comfortable and enjoy simplicity.

So why is it that we get a rush when we see something new or watch a story about someone who challenged the norm? It's because we are also extremely curious creatures and the newness, while a bit unnerving, brings immense energy to our lives.

Which brings to mind one of my favorite questions: "Why not?" 

In this episode, I will explain how the use of the question "Why not?" can bring more joy and satisfaction in your life both from trying new things to challenging norms.

Episode #063 - The Beauty of Scars

WELCOME TO EPISODE #063 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

We are all made of scars.

Whether they be physical, mental or emotional, my hope is that you have a few.

Not that I wish pain on you, but scars indicate two very important elements of life:

1) You've put yourself out there and have endured some sort of adversity

2) You are stronger than whatever caused it

As I listened to "Made of Scars" by Stone Sour during my workout the other day, I noticed the scars on my body more and then started thinking about the internal scars that I've endured.

Rather than pity myself, I was overwhelmed with pride. There is a certain power that comes from knowing that you rose up and moved forward after an interruption in your life.

That's what scars show.

In this episode I describe how I changed my perspective on my scars, inside and out, and I empower you to do the same. This mental change will bring you a new source of pride and strength in your everyday life.
