Episode #087 - Empower Your Potential

WELCOME TO EPISODE #087 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

How many times in your life have you said “I can’t”? That method of self-limitation happens in all of us. We all convey doubt upon ourselves when faced with the smallest of challenges.

But what if you could change that conversation?

In this episode, I discuss how to fulfill your potential by removing self-doubt and empowering a new method of goal attainment. By creating experiential goals and setting small landmarks along the way, you can achieve whatever you want with the right level of dedication and focus.

Even if you fall short of the ultimate goal, you will learn a tremendous amount about yourself and enjoy the progress and growth you’ve uncovered along the way.

Episode #076 - Abolish Mediocrity

WELCOME TO EPISODE #076 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

The feeling of accomplishment is one of pure joy. Knowing that you pushed yourself to greater heights, further limits and new knowledge of yourself is one that is not rivaled by many other feelings.

So why is it that we settle for the comfortable sweatshirt of “good enough” far too often?

While we sit here with greatness inside of us, waiting to be exercised, we often pull up short for one of many reasons.

In this episode, I share three of the most common reasons for mediocrity:

  1. Habit of self-pity

  2. An over-conservative mindset due to fear

  3. Trying to be everything to everyone

I’ll share some personal insights as I’ve fallen victim to all three of these myself and how you can push these aside to have more great moments in your life.

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 #066 - What's Your Best Life?

WELCOME TO EPISODE #066 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

With every negative event, every tragedy, comes an opportunity to reflect, learn and appreciate.

Recently, I had a friend from high school pass away unexpectedly and tragically. Josh was one of the most amazingly genuine, caring and positive guys I have ever known. Whenever you talked to him or saw him, he had this natural ability to make your life better and make you feel like the most important person in the world.

Josh had moved to Hawaii, become a lifeguard, was a drummer and was surrounded by an amount of love and respect that we could all aspire to. To me, he was truly living his best life. 

In reading the outpouring of messages from friends and family, it brought forth the question:

What does it mean to live "your best life"?

We all see the posts on social media claiming a moment in "living our best life," but are we living a holistically "best life"?

In this episode, I share some of my reflections in the wake of this tragedy and how I combine my learnings with some of my marketing experience to create a personal audit to ensure that you can live your best life for the rest of your days. 

If there's ever an episode of mine that you share, please let it be this one as I want everyone to know how amazing Josh was and how he can teach us all how to live our best lives.
