Episode #089 - The New Version of the Happy Hour

WELCOME TO EPISODE #089 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

The moment you hear the words “happy hour” you immediately think of a bunch of friends or co-workers sitting around having a drink at around 5:05pm (or sooner depending on how the week went.)

This podcast will change the imagery you think of when hearing those words, but it also will change your life for the better.

In this episode, I will discuss the new version of a “happy hour” which is dedicated to your self care and will help you raise your levels of happiness, focus and energy throughout a hectic week.

By dedicating this time for yourself and deliberately implementing happiness into your week, it becomes the best meeting you’ll have.

For those that don’t think they have the time, I give you a fool proof way to find the time.

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

Episode #085 - Redefine Your Happiness

WELCOME TO EPISODE #085 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

When we are born, we’re pretty limited in our emotions and even more so limited in what causes our happiness or sadness.

As we grow and experience life, we create this unique collection of things, experiences, sounds, sights, people, etc. that bring us joy.

However, in the age of social media when we’re too busy scrolling other peoples’ lives, we have lost touch with what makes us happy in our core.

In this episode, I will give you an incredibly simple trick to redefine your happiness and use that trick to bring bliss into every single day of your life moving forward.

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
