We've all been there.

Elevated heart rate, fidgety hands, sweaty pits. All from being faced with a potentially life changing decision, a new challenge or maybe it's just picking the right outfit for a special occasion.

But what if you could make these feelings go away or even make them work in your favor?

In this episode, I share 4 key tips on how to overcome nerves based off personal success and from those I've coached. Learn to take back your life and stop feeling overly anxious about these types of scenarios.

Make sure you take a photo or video of how you're implementing these 4 new tips in your life and share it on Twitter or Instagram and tag me @richbracken1.

Episode #034 - Master the Mirror

WELCOME TO EPISODE #034 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

One of the first things we do in the morning is look in a mirror. Showing the reflection of who we are as beautiful individuals, but a staggering 65% of people don't like what they see when they look at themselves.

So, over half of us are starting our day with negative talk.

By mastering the communication you have with yourself in the morning, you can set the tone for a fantastic day, no matter what comes at you.

In this podcast, I discuss a couple of simple ways that you can change that approach and set yourself up for the best day that you can possibly have. I also explain how the same exercise in the evening will provide you clarity and a peaceful night's rest.

Start implementing this conversation and let me know how it's going.

Have an amazing day!

Episode #026 - Keep Your Keys

WELCOME TO EPISODE #026 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

Like the song says, life truly is a highway.

So many times one of the biggest topics I coach people on is whether or not they feel that they have control of their lives. Whether it's job, relationship, family or friend related, so many of us have those moments where we steer off course of where we want to go to head more in the direction of where we think others want us to go.

There is nothing that should take your focus off where you want to go and how you want to get there. Through a few simple exercises and a focused mentality, you can get to your final destination on your terms.

In this episode I discuss the critical nature of truly establishing where you are in life, where you want to go and how you're going to get there. All the while, keeping your hands on the wheel and not letting anyone slow you down or divert you.

Most importantly, it's completely acceptable to keep your keys in your own hands and not hand them to someone else.

Start today with this episode and please share it with as many people as you can.

What's your resolution? Drop me a note at enrichyoursoul@gmail.com or on Twitter and Instagram @richbracken1. Share your goals and progress as you work to make 2018 the year you make it happen!
