Episode #093 - The Power of Intentional Joy

WELCOME TO EPISODE #093 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Have you ever gotten to the end of the day and found yourself exhausted and thinking, “The day just got away from me.”

It’s those days that just roll by without the highlights of anything special that seem to weigh on us in a negative fashion. We feel like time and life is just blowing by.

Today, we change that.

In this episode I will talk about the benefits of inserting moments of intentional joy into your life and how you can actually live a longer, happier life in the process.

I’ll also discuss a variety of methods to identify intentional joy activities and how to ensure that they happen in you day. One example I talk about is journaling, which I also discuss in an appearance on Fox 4 in Kansas City that you can see here.

Today is the day that you become a happier person on a consistent basis.

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 #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.

Episode #079 - The Constant Process of Improvement

WELCOME TO EPISODE #079 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

It’s that time of year again: Resolution Season!

The time where we reflect on the past year and focus on what we’re going to change or improve in the new year. Typically it’s a huge life change and/or ridding ourselves of our decade long bad habit.

But what if you shifted your mindset with the understanding that it would bring longer lasting change, goal achievement and life happiness?

By treating our lives like a homeowner treats their house, you can get more done throughout the year and find the time to enjoy your progress at the same time.

Whether you’re changing the lightbulb of life or replacing the exploding water heater of your career, all of life’s to-do list is much more manageable with a few minor tweaks.
