Episode #086 - Your Imperfection is Perfect

WELCOME TO EPISODE #086 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Perfection is a myth, a falsehood that, for some reason, so many people chase. This idea of never making mistakes and living this faultless life will bring more stress and unrealistic pursuit.

So what if I told you that by accepting your failures, your faults and your mistakes, you would then be “perfect?”

In this episode, I discuss the benefits of humility and transparency in your personal, and professional, life as you admit your mistakes.

Amongst the personal benefits of stress relief and growth, you can also expect to experience improvement these areas as a leader:

  1. Earning respect from your team

  2. Vulnerability strengthens your team

  3. Leading by example (improving your own humility)

  4. Building a culture of trust

Career stagnation is one of the worst feelings that you can possibly have, especially if you’re an overachiever by nature.

You’re cruising along, knocking it out of the park and then, your path for growth either has obstacles, no clear vision or doesn’t exist at all.

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.

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.
