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 #090 - The Power of Worthiness & Vulnerability

WELCOME TO EPISODE #090 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

“We’re not worthy! We’re not worthy!”

One of the most memorable comedy lines from Wayne’s World makes us laugh at the visual of Wayne and Garth bowing down to Alice Cooper.

But how many times do we quietly, to ourselves, declare that we’re not worthy of a person, job, opportunity or life path?

In prepping to watch Brene’ Brown’s new Netflix special, I went back and re-watched her TED Talk on vulnerability. In that talk, which you must go watch after this podcast located here, she talks about the concept of worthiness.

It’s as if my eyes saw a new color and I was reintroduced to the real me.

In this episode, I discuss the last 24 hours of my reawakening thanks to the amazing Brene’ Brown. Through the power of vulnerability and worthiness, I plan on leveraging this newfound energy and focus and I wanted to share it with you in hopes that you find the same power.

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.
