Episode #082 - Focusing on Goals Through Adversity

WELCOME TO EPISODE #082 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

There is nothing more frustrating that being focused on a goal, kicking it off properly, building momentum and then

SCREEEEEECH!

Roadblock.

If you’ve not been there, you will be. Anyone who pursues a goal, big or small, professional or personal, will encounter this. The bigger the goal, the bigger the adversity.

So, what do you do about it?

In this episode, I will share 4 tips on how to overcome adversity when pursuing your goals. These have worked wonders for me in achieving some monster, and minor, goals in my life and I’ve utilized them with scores of people I’ve coached.

I will dive into the following tactics to adhere to when things go sideways (and they will):

1) Reset your mindset

2) Pause for gratitude

3) Go back to your plan

4) Don’t overcompensate

Episode #081 - Time to Tidy Up Your Life

WELCOME TO EPISODE #081 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

I’ll admit it without reservation: I’m a KonMari addict!

If you’re not familiar with KonMari, it’s the method made popular by Marie Kondo (konmari.com). She is a tidying expert, author and now has her own Netflix show “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.” In it, she helps people in various stages of life de-clutter their homes and find happiness.

Through her direction of bringing everything in a certain group into one pile and keeping things that only spark joy, it’s amazing what you find you’ve been holding on to for way too long. In trying her method at our house, it’s unreal what we uncovered, even as self proclaimed minimalists, through this approach.

Not only has it brought more peace and joy to the house, but also a ton of positive energy into me.

Last night, I got to thinking, “What about applying this to life, career, social life, social media, etc.? Why couldn’t you do the same thing to de-clutter your entire life?”

In this episode, I share how to de-clutter your daily life using the KonMari Method as I gush about Marie and her amazing philosophy. You will walk away with a new outlook on the things that impact your life every single day so that you can find true bliss in everything you do.
