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 #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.

Episode #053 - The Power of Appreciation

WELCOME TO EPISODE #053 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Can you remember the last time you felt truly appreciated and acknowledged? How did it happen? What was said? What did it feel like?
Chances are it was more than a simple "Thank you." Acts of true appreciation go a step further to be more subjective and specific to the person and the qualities.

In this episode I will give you 4 tips on how to truly show more appreciation and the right way to do it. From what you say and how you say it to the benefits of the act, we will help revive appreciation from a lost art to a staple of our societal behavior.

Also, I'll be putting up some bonus content on appreciation for business leaders on my LinkedIn page. You can follow me on LinkedIn here.
