Episode #092 - Turning Rejection Into Power & Confidence

WELCOME TO EPISODE #092 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

We’ve all felt it.

That painful sting of rejection that makes you immediately question your worth, what’s wrong with you and how this could possibly be happening!

Having battled some serious funks of depression through my own episodes of rejection, I learned a valuable lesson: you’re actually being pushed in a better direction.

In this episode, I’ll share a couple of mental shifts that will help you be more agile in your emotions when facing rejection or failure (big or small) and how that negative sensation is actually a power source waiting to be tapped into.

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 #019 - Motivational Monday - Visualize Your Finish Line

WELCOME TO EPISODE #019 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Coming off a week of recovery from running the New York City Marathon, I've realized how many lessons I learned over the past 7 months of training, as well as running the race itself.

Today, it's all about visualizing your finish line. What does that look like to you? What does finishing a personal challenge look like in that moment of completion and success?

Throughout my training, I visualized how I wanted the experience of crossing the finish line to look, I knew exactly how I wanted it to go. As I ran and trained for months, that was what drove me through the early mornings, the late nights and the last couple miles of training.

When race day was upon me, I focused on that as I stood at the starting line. 

Nothing was going to keep me from living that vision.

In this episode I discuss the value of that visualization and how it can help you get to cross your own finish line. No matter what your challenge or goal is, you must picture what success looks like. 

As you set your goals, feel free to reach out to me at enrichyoursoul@gmail.com and tell me your story. I've been there too and I want to help guide you to a better peace of mind. 

Also, follow me on Twitter and Instagram at @richbracken1 and tag a photo of your personal goal and why you want to accomplish it!

I love y'all and want to see you change the trajectory of your life, starting today!
