Episode #076 - Abolish Mediocrity

WELCOME TO EPISODE #076 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

The feeling of accomplishment is one of pure joy. Knowing that you pushed yourself to greater heights, further limits and new knowledge of yourself is one that is not rivaled by many other feelings.

So why is it that we settle for the comfortable sweatshirt of “good enough” far too often?

While we sit here with greatness inside of us, waiting to be exercised, we often pull up short for one of many reasons.

In this episode, I share three of the most common reasons for mediocrity:

  1. Habit of self-pity

  2. An over-conservative mindset due to fear

  3. Trying to be everything to everyone

I’ll share some personal insights as I’ve fallen victim to all three of these myself and how you can push these aside to have more great moments in your life.

Episode #075 - The Purpose of Purpose

WELCOME TO EPISODE #075 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Have you ever gotten to the end of an extremely busy day and you’re exhausted, yet, unfulfilled?

Or that the things you’re accomplishing don’t quite bring you the joy you thought they would?

What you’re lacking is purpose.

Purpose brings you a deeper, more intrinsic value in everything you do and is easier to draw on when things get tough. Your purpose is a source of strength and drive that will overcome even the most difficult of challenges.

But how do you find it and stick to it?

In this episode, I will discuss the best way to find your purpose and how you can use it on a daily basis to achieve greatness, even on the toughest of days.

I will share with you the benefits of:

  • Being honest and introspective about your dreams and goals

  • Sharing your goals for support and advantage

  • The value of acknowledging your progress

  • How to audit your actions to identify efficiency.

Episode #074 - How to Re-Motivate Yourself

WELCOME TO EPISODE #074 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Through two separate e-mails yesterday, this question was asked of me:

“How do you keep going when you’re just not in a place that you have the focus or care to do anything?”

Simple: re-motivation.

Yes, it is a made up word, but it is one that has served me well throughout my life as I’ve worked my tail off to achieve, and come up short, on many goals.

To me, this is getting the engine going in your heart and soul when you’ve lost your way from the path to your goals and you’re in a darker, more frustrated place. When you lack the overall motivation to achieve, not just the daily “don’t feel like it.”

In this episode, I share the three key things I’ve done that have helped me refocus, recharge and re-motivate myself to get back on track and reset myself to overcome the obstacles of doubt and despair.

Episode #073 - Give 100% of Your 50%

WELCOME TO EPISODE #073 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Have you ever been in a position where you felt that you weren’t able to give 100% of your effort? Maybe it was due to illness or injury or maybe mental burnout because you were busy chasing the images that you see on social media. Just pushing yourself too hard because that influencer you follow is “always crushing it, every single day!!!!”

Well, I’m here to tell you that you need to give yourself some grace.

In this episode, I share my thoughts on 100% of 50%. Basically giving your best of what you have to give. You’re not always going to be at the top of your game, but you can always give your best no matter what the day brings.

I’ll also discuss the dangers of buying into social media influencers and maintaining the superficial level of “crushing it” that might not be what you think it is.

Episode #072 - The Ripple Effect of Positivity

WELCOME TO EPISODE #072 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Imagine your act of positivity is a drop in someone’s still pond of life. That ripple effect is what we should all live for.

Even a simple drop can cause ripples that reach outward, effecting the rest of the water. Your kindness and positivity can shape the day, week or even life of another.

Internal and external changes through deliberate acts of positive behavior benefit us all and will reach us all eventually. The more we do it, the quicker the reach. 

In this episode, I will share how using this approach in your personal and professional lives can have a profound impact internally and externally.
