The other day I was talking with a friend about my recent trip to Nosara, Costa Rica. And one of the things we were talking about was their relationship with Mother Earth. The people there are so conscious of what they are putting out and also regulate what others bring in and take out. For example, there are very few garbage cans and even throwing away a gum wrapper was a challenge.

 

While this did get frustrating, I love that it forced me to be more aware of my surroundings and what trash I was carrying around or just throwing away for someone else to deal with. And as my friend and I continued to talk, we also realized that this concept ran parallel with us as humans, too.

 

What trash are you carrying around? Are you disposing of it in a healthy way? Are you sick of carrying it around? When you hear gossip, are you throwing it on someone else? Or are you up-cycling it into something better?

 

We must be more conscious of what we’re putting out into the Earth – both literally and figuratively – because we live in a cause and effect world. Our actions affect other people and things.

 

“Our physical surroundings affect our spiritual state.”

 

What is one small thing you could decide not to pick up or dispose of in a healthy way? I challenge you to find one thing and approach it with intention and see how you feel. And please share with me what you discover.

 

-- 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • How aware Costa Ricans are of Mother Earth
  • About the parallels between the physical and spiritual world when it comes to collecting trash
  • Why we must be more conscious of what we’re carrying, what we’re putting out and what we’re throwing away.

In case you don’t remember this tidbit about me, I love learning new things and I kind of geek out when a ton of scientific knowledge is dropped. And this is just one of the many reasons why I loved talked with entrepreneur, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) expert and mind coach, Andy Murphy.

 

Originally from Liverpool, England (love his accent!), he made his way to Australia 15 years ago where he created an extremely successful real estate business and discovered NLP in a sales and marketing environment. Years later, after a business setback, Andy was looking for a new and completely different challenge and incorporated his knowledge and expertise in NLP into the world of coaching and consulting, and the rest as they say is history.

 

The timing of this conversation was impeccable and helped me tackle some recent obstacles I faced in regard to creating and speaking. Tune into learn what NLP actually is, how it can help retrain your thoughts and belief systems and help you in all areas of your life. Andy also gives us a sneak peek into some of his other favorite practices that help him live a life he loves (and how you can too). You don’t want to miss this knowledge-packed episode!  

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • What does it feel like when you follow your intuition and how did you know that’s what you should do?
  • How do we start to know that we have power within the moments of fear, panic etc.?
  • What does it take to get someone unstuck? Why are we stuck and how can we move past the place that’s keeping us there?
  • What is NLP and what are some practical ways you’ve seen it used?
  • When someone is trying to win over an audience are there certain things one can do to connect with them more quickly?
  • What are some of your favorite ways of using NLP in your life?
  • Do you meditate or visualize? What does that look like?
  • What are you most excited about right now?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Andy’s journey led him to neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)
  • The power of intuition and how you can tune into it
  • The importance of a-ha moments and perspective shifts
  • Tapping into your “alter ego(s)”
  • Building new brain pathways
  • Why you shouldn’t feel the fear and do it anyway
  • How NLP helps retrain your nervous system by designing your thoughts and belief systems
  • How to develop instant rapport
  • The connection between memories and feelings
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“It’s not who you are, it’s where you are.”

 

“If you love what you do and you’re coming from your heart and your gut feels good, you’re winning.”

 

“Get rid of other peoples’ opinions and focus on your own growth, and I can promise that your life and business will match with where you’re at.”

“Know it so you can change it.”

 

--

Andy left Liverpool, England 15 years ago and traveled to Sydney Australia, where he discovered Neuro-Linguistic Programming in a sales and marketing environment. Breaking multiple sales records in investment real-estate and at the top of the business in Australia, he was head-hunted to New

Zealand.

 

At the age of only 26 he opened a company developing a project to build a 100 million dollar resort in the Fiji Islands. After marketing the company over in Dubai alongside multi-billion dollar developments the global real-estate industry began to slow down.

 

Wanting a new challenge, Andy changed his focus and took his knowledge and expertise of NLP into the world of consulting and coaching.

 

Andy now takes his skill and passion around the world. Such as the USA, Saudi Arabia, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia the list goes on, where clients seek him out for private consulting including entrepreneurs, world champion MMA stars, professional sports athletes, multi-millionaire business owners, TV and film producers, TV and stage actors, trauma survivors and even

Royal Family.

 

Andy`s true passion is to use the most cutting edge psychological tools blended with his own 21st century version of eastern philosophy to help global clients excel to their full potential. This passion is what drives him every day.­

New Year’s is just around the corner and I know that several of you are already working on your resolutions. Or maybe you’re a goal-getter all year round – and I applaud that! However, are you just interested in your goals or are you committed? Let’s talk about the differences between the two…

 

Now when I say committed, I mean committed. When you’re just interested, it may feel like your committed, but in the back of your mind you’re always looking for a way out. You haven’t set a date, you’re not risking anything or putting anything on the line. You’ve still got the opportunity to get out at any time. When you’re committed – you’re all in.

 

“A commitment is a one million percent YES.”

 

Here’s how the language around it changes. When you’re interested, it’s “Someday I will…, or “I would do x-y-z, but…” You’re always seeking out excuses why you can’t without realizing it. However, when you’re committed, you use phrases like, “I will…,” I am…” When obstacles arise, you offer no excuses and instead seek out solutions because you know that these will help someone in some way down the road.

 

“Solutions are the blessings you teach.”

 

Committed people surround themselves with people who don’t tolerate excuses, whereas those who are interested tend to find themselves with those who support those excuses. Weekends are a numbing time-out away from your goals. Those who are committed look for what they need in order to stay committed. Again, there is no way out.

 

“When you’re just interested, you always leave the window cracked open – there’s always a way out. When you’re committed, there is no way out, just through.”

 

And before I go, I just want to share one more difference and it’s in regard to worrying about what others think. You can likely guess this, but when people are just interested, they DO care what others think. When you’re committed, the only thing you’re worried about is not fulfilling your potential. Your worries feel purposeful because it’s not just about you.

 

If you’re feeling more on the interested side and want to get more committed, I encourage you to

 

“Take action from your future self who is committed.”

 

Keep that momentum going and please share with me what committed actions you’re taking today – I would love to hear from you!

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • What the differences are between interested and committed
  • How our obstacles help us teach and help others
  • How the time spent on weekends makes a difference

Any WWE fans out there? Regardless if you are or not, you’re going to love the conversation I had with WWE and Total Divas star, Nia Jax. As a plus-size model and TV star, she is busting body stereotypes left and right and wants other women to unapologetically own who they uniquely are, too.

 

Tune in to hear how Nia’s journey brought her to the WWE, what she had to overcome to get there and how she uses that platform now to empower other women.

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • When you were younger, was becoming a WWE star a dream of yours?
  • Where did you have to go mentally in order to show up at your WWE tryout?
  • What made you keep going?
  • What would tell someone who is waiting for the perfect moment to do something?
  • What is something that because of a no has made you stronger?
  • What is something that you are extremely grateful for right now?
  • Why do thinking it’s so important for women right now to use their voices and platforms?
  • What is something you wish more people knew about you?
  • What have you learned to embrace about yourself that before you wished was different?
  • What are some boundaries you’ve had to set in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle and mindset?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Nia got her start in the WWE
  • How she’s helped bust stereotypes
  • The importance of taking action before you’re ready
  • Why WWE is the perfect for Nia
  • How the NO’s lead to your perfect fit
  • What drives Nia to do what she does
  • Women’s empowerment
  • Being different and owning it

 

Quotes:

 

“Don’t wait on your wait.”

 

“Right now I’m as good as I’m going to get today.”

 

“Women need to use their voice so they’re not settling for anything less than they deserve.”

 

--

There’s one thing that’s painfully clear when someone steps in the ring with Nia Jax: She’s not like most women.

The 6-foot-tall Jax has towered over other women for as long as she can recall. She was kicked out of activities like karate, kickboxing and judo as a child because someone always ended up getting hurt at her hands.

Though Jax eventually turned her attention toward the world of modeling, she still hungered for competition. A cousin of The Rock, she made her way to the WWE Performance Center where she learned to harness her aggression in the squared circle. She immediately blew away all other Superstars in terms of power, claiming all of the WWE Performance Center’s female lifting records.

Unsurprisingly, Jax has dominated her competition since her debut, squeezing the air out of her opponents with a crushing bear hug before viciously slamming them into the mat to earn the victory. She carried that power with her to Raw as a surprise selection in the 2016 WWE Brand Extension Draft and immediately established herself as a future power player in the Women’s division.

From day one, Jax claimed that greatness was her destiny. Her size and power may ensure that she reaches it sooner than anyone expects.

This is the time of year where little bursts of inspiration or positivity are most needed, am I right? With the hustle, bustle and stress of visitors and visiting family, it’s hard not to let it get to you at some point.

 

So this year I’m already switching my focus from stress to excitement. I am in control of how I feel and how I act. No matter what old beliefs pop up when spending time around family and friends, I will not let it derail my current beliefs.

 

I know that most of us have those certain people who criticize their lifestyle, career or habits, but don’t take the bait! You’re not going to change them and you’re certainly not going to change for them, right?

 

Go in with the energy that “it’s all OK,” and let all the little stuff roll off your back. Now this doesn’t give anyone permission to walk all over you, but if you can just LOVE and LISTEN a little more, and release expectations, you’re going to close out the holidays on a high note.

 

See what happens when you can allow, accept and have compassion instead of going on the defense or judging. How much can you grow and let go of this holiday season? Tell me what your plans are for propelling yourself through the holidays and into 2018? I want to hear because we’re all in this together.

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why relationships are our biggest teachers
  • How to show up with the energy that says all is OK
  • The importance of being a better communicator and listener

We’ve all heard how difficult it can be to become a Navy SEAL – the physical challenges alone can make or break one’s success. Today’s guest and host of The Unbeatable Mind podcast, Mark Divine, had that part covered, but he ensured his success by mastering his thoughts as well.

 

From a disempowered background and core story, Mark didn’t always have dreams of becoming a Navy SEAL. In fact, he actually had a successful career as a CPA, but he longed for something more that also appealed to his athletic side.

 

Tune in to find out how Mark shifted his thought patterns and discarded those that didn’t work to accomplish his goals then and how he continues to apply those skills in his life and businesses now. I love how Mark’s approach links the heart and mind – you’re going to be amazed at just how simple it can be once you can quiet your mind and focus on one task at a time.

 

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • What led you to begin you Zen practice?
  • What were some of the core beliefs of your family?

  • If someone is feeling disempowered, what would you recommend for a visualization?
  • What goes on in regard to training at your retreats?
  • How can you break through mentally?
  • What are you most excited about right now?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Mark went from CPA to Navy SEAL
  • Mark’s Zen and meditation practice
  • Changing the patterns of your thoughts from disempowering to empowering
  • What it means to “practice on the bench”
  • The BIG Four Skills (1. Breath Control 2. Maintaining, Managing and Curating Positive Direction of Emotions and Thinking 3. Always Hold an Image of What Success Looks Like and 4. Front Sight Focus)
  • The importance and power of visualization
  • Integrative training with mind and heart
  • The Box-Breathing technique
  • Disengaging from past events to free up energy

Quotes:

“If you can see it, you can speak it and then you can believe it.”

 

“Create a positive memory of the future.”

 

“Sever the negative energy of the past so you can attract the force of the future which pulls you toward the future.”

 

“We always have value and a gift to give, no matter what happens to use, as long as we’re here.”

Mark is from upstate New York and did his formal undergraduate education at Colgate University. His years at Colgate University were focused on athletic endeavors such as competitive swimming, rowing and triathlon racing, interrupted by brief episodes of academic activity. After graduation from "the Gate" Mark started his professional career as a CPA with Coopers & Lybrand in New York City. Clients included luminous and no-longer existent financial firms such as Solomon Brothers and Paine Webber. 

Four years later, with an MBA from NYU Stern School of Business in his briefcase, he left behind the suit to pursue his inner vision to become a Navy SEAL officer. He was 26 when he graduated as Honor Man (#1 ranked trainee) of his SEAL BUD/s class 170. Mark was fortunate to serve with many great men and women on active duty for nine years and in the reserves for eleven...retiring at the rank of Commander in 2011.

After leaving active duty in 1997, Mark started his second business career as an entrepreneur. He co-founded the successful Coronado Brewing Company and launched NavySEALs.com in the same year he left active duty. To this day, it is the leading website for gear and information about the SEALs. 

Mark's business career was interrupted by a stint as an Adjunct Professor of Leadership at the University of San Diego, where he was pursuing his Doctorate in Leadership, then by a one-year recall to active duty in 2004. The recall took him to Baghdad with SEAL Team One to conduct a special project for Naval Special Warfare Command surrounding the role of the USMC in Special Operations. While in Iraq, Mark developed Kokoro Yoga, which allows you to see, feel, hear, and live the goal you are looking to achieve through warrior visualization. 


In 2007 he launched his CrossFit affiliate and the now internationally known SEALFIT program to provide transformational personal and team training experiences. The training utilizes an integrated warrior development model he developed, called Unbeatable Mind, which draws from his 20 years as a SEAL and business leader, 25 years as a martial artist and 15 years as yoga practitioner.  He now hosts a highly rated podcast on iTunes called Unbeatable Mind.

SEALFIT and Unbeatable Mind are uniquely effective at elevating clients to a higher level of operating, thinking and leading - encompassing the full spectrum of human experience: Body, Mind and Spirit in Self, Team and Organization. Mark advises and trains a diverse group of clients through his Unbeatable Mind and SEALFIT programs including: Olympic medalists, CEOs, Superbowl champions and other professional athletes.

I just returned a few days ago from my third trip to the Costa Rican jungles and it was such an awesome trip – even though every time I go, I feel a ton of resistance around it. And that’s because it throws me out of my routine (and it’s a LONG journey to get there).

 

But here’s what this trip helped me with this round – it forced me to take time for myself. It forced me to just sit in quiet in nature (with the occasional monkey making his presence known). You see up until Costa Rica, I was a feeling a little blocked creatively, which was super frustrating because I had a talk to prepare for and an eCourse to come up with. But on the flight home – because I allowed myself the space to let that creativity come flowing back in – the ideas poured out! I couldn’t believe how easy it felt.

 

Now, you might be saying, “This doesn’t apply to me because I’m not creative.” Newsflash – you ARE creative!

 

“We are all creative beings.”

 

You create and put things out in the world every single day – and there are more forms than you think. It’s not just writing, designing or painting. There is an outlet that makes you feel alive – you just need to tune in to find out what it is.

 

Now as you can imagine, while we need to practice creative space all year round, with the holiday upon us, it’s more important than ever to create space so we don’t lose our marbles when family and friends visit. So just like I stated above, you must carve out time just for you.

 

Schedule in your time and practice fierce boundaries for parties or other commitments that don’t excite you. No is a complete sentence and you aren’t responsible for making everyone happy. Use the holidays for what they were meant for – joy and connection.

 

Ask yourself, “What do I need each week to ensure a happy, healthy holiday season for myself?”

 

I challenge you to look at your calendar and make those unbreakable “space making” appointments with yourself. In order to create and transform we must find that space.

 

Let me know how you do! I love hearing from you!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why we need to create space for ourselves regularly – especially during the holiday season
  • How scheduling appointments for yourself is crucial
  • How to set fierce boundaries

I came across my guest, Wes Chapman, as I was preparing for my TedX Talk and couldn’t stop thinking about his story. With a tumultuous childhood from day one including abuse in numerous forms and being told that he was too broken to fix, Wes is walking proof that we are only who we choose to believe we are.

 

Now Wes has committed his life to helping others who feel or have been told they are “broken” and encourages everyone to take control of their lives, ditch the victim mentality and get into hero mode.

Listen in as Wes vulnerably takes us through his journey of rediscovering his self-worth and identity and how it led him to an entrepreneurial career of helping others.

 

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • How do we start to tap into or figure out our self-worth?
  • Did you have something that was holding you back and if so, how did you go about taking the steps to move past it?
  • What is something you are most excited about?
  • Is there anything in your life that you’re still grabbing at even though it’s not making you happy?
  • What are some of your favorite ways to connect with family and friends?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Wes’s tumultuous childhood and how he gained both his self-worth and identity back and how it led him to help others
  • How to tap into your self-worth
  • Why we need to truly understand empathy
  • Letting go of the past and taking your power back
  • Self-control and self-understanding
  • Taking responsibility for the past in order to take control of your life
  • The power of labels, how they create your identity and how limiting they are
  • Why environment is crucial to your well-being
  • Getting back to where you find peace and comfort
  • Disconnecting from technology (and how Wes suggests doing it)

 

Quotes:

 

“Put the victim to bed and wake the hero up instead.”

 

“Your brain only understands what it’s experienced.”

 

“Anything that’s in the rear-view mirror you can 100% take ownership of that.”

 

“If you can positively think your way into a great life, you can negatively think your way into a crappy life.”

 

“Rip the labels off – you are what you choose to be.”

 

“The day of excuses is over.”

 

“I don’t believe in controlling other people; I believe in people controlling themselves.”

 

--

Wes’s message of “waking up the hero” has been adopted by thousands of people around the world. He draws from his unique life experiences to deeply connect with people of all backgrounds, creeds and beliefs. He is the founder of A HUMAN PROJECT, an organization that incubates creative, scalable solutions to systemic problems and gathers together the greatest minds to solve global issues in education, health and society.

 

With a background in technology, design and entrepreneurship, Wes has worked with clients like Verizon, Microsoft, A&E and has been the recipient of multiple “App of the Year” awards from Apple. He holds patents on several medical advancements. His work has been covered in multiple media outlets and publications, including: INC, CBS, TechCrunch, ABC, Forbes and many others.

 

As a speaker, Wes has shared the stage with eminent business owners and thought leader alike, including: Robert Herjavec, Sheri Salata, Gary Vaynerchuk, Randy Jackson, Peter Diamandis and many others.

 

And as co-creator of THE HUMAN GATHERING – named “The #1 Leadership Conference” by Forbes, Wes is consistently bringing together today’s foremost leaders in business, technology, philanthropy and the arts.

For the past month, I’ve been feeling a lack of inspiration, and when that feeling comes up, shortly after the feelings of unworthiness and not being good enough pop their heads back in the picture. It brings back glimpses of the crushing anxiety that I once faced. I knew it was time to start bringing the joy back into my routine (did I mention how much I love routine?).

 

So I decided to enlist the help of a coach. I needed more than the cheerleader voice in my own head – I needed compassion from someone who’s been there.

 

“I don’t want all of the things I’ve wished for to be wished away because I’m anxious.”

 

Even though I’m happy and grateful for all of the amazing things that are happening in my life and business, I was also getting bored. In order to do that I knew I needed to shake things up a bit and change up my routine

 

“Even creatures of habit need to shake things up.”

 

But this creature over here LOVES her routine and has a ton of resistance when it comes to changing it – even if it’s doing things that I like to do. Anyone else? In order change my thoughts around the new, I needed to find the routine and grounding in it.

 

Keep in mind these changes in your routine don’t need to be big – start small! What could you start with? I wanna know! Be sure to comment below or on Instagram – I love hearing!

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why doing new and different things helps eliminate boredom
  • What to with the resistance of changing things up
  • How doing the smallest of things can relieve anxiety

Shero (noun): a female who fights for what she believes in and never gives up, even if it means fighting alone.

 

I had the honor of interviewing not one, but TWO Sheroes on today’s episode – Cassey Ho and Lisa Bilyeu – the hosts of The Sheroic Podcast. Before starting The Sheroic, both women were already successful entrepreneurs in their own right (Cassey is the CEO of Blogilates and Lisa is a founding team member of Quest Nutrition), however both share that there wasn’t a huge “break” that landed them in either role.

 

Tune in to hear about each woman’s journey thus far and how they’ve risen (and continued to rise) to meet the challenges and obstacles that get in their way. I know you will absolutely fall in love with their comforting, loving and vulnerable natures. This hour was seriously a warm-up for more inspiring conversations to come – enjoy!

Warning: As I recorded this episode, my palms were sweating – I can’t make this up. And that’s because as the episode title suggests, I am getting super vulnerable and super transparent.

Ever since I started writing my book, I’ve been in full-on creative mode. I want to create and I crave creating – in ALL different forms. Even as I’ve been the busiest I’ve ever been, I’ve made it a priority because my ideas had to come out.

“Creating the time to get creative has opened up in an insane vortex of things I want to do.” 

To name a few of my creative outlets – dance, guitar and now…wait for it…spoken word. I’ve been receiving massive downloads recently that have spurred me to delve into this arena. And today, I’m going to share one of my poems with you.

Look, I’m not a rapper or poet…but maybe I am? 

“Who are we not to claim these titles even though we haven’t done them if it’s coming through us?”

I am so grateful that I have my mastermind women, Lindsay and Danette, to act as a reminder of my soul’s wishes. If your soul calls you to do something – do it! Don’t judge, just get those ideas up and out! It really does help if you have a person or two who you can share your ideas with. Hint: You know it’s life-shifting when you have a “full-body yes and a full-brain hell no!”

 

I hope you enjoy the poem I share. I now dare you to be vulnerable with me and share with me what it felt like to express yourself. I can’t wait to hear!

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • How to show up as your true self to the world
  • About the importance of creating time to get creative
  • Why you need to get your ideas up and out

As a dance catalyst and teacher, Elana has made it her mission to create spaces for women – and men to help them merge the emotional and logical parts of the brain. While most recently hosting small groups in her home to help women step into their power, she wanted to create a larger event (Wild Vessel) that could help more women and men, too. Elana helps these individuals see themselves more deeply by moving the body to quiet the mind.

 

Elana invites you to an experience to help you see things more clearly in a substance-, device- and shoe-free space (ha, check your shoes at the door). If this sounds like an event that resonates with you, see the Resources section on this page.

  • What is something you want people to know about your event that we haven’t talked about yet?
  • What are you wanting to reclaim more of in your life?

  • Helping women step into their power
  • Merging the emotional and logical parts of brain

Twenty-eight years ago, Lorna Jane, founder of Lorna Jane Active, was a fitness instructor who just wanted to find fitness wear that made her feel good. So much so that she used her own swimsuit to craft her own outfit. Her students liked them so much that they too began asking for their very own Lorna Jane clothing. And while it was never her intention at the time to create a clothing line, Lorna Jane Active was meant to be.

 

Making others feel good doesn’t stop at her clothing line though. In her most recent book, Love You, Lorna focuses on the importance of self-belief. At one point she lost a portion of that self-belief and self-love and worked to regain it back. It’s through her experiences and learnings that she hopes to help other women find their self-confidence, self-love and purpose again – and create an amazing life.

 

Lorna is one of the most-inspiring humans I’ve had the privilege of interviewing and I was positively giddy that we were able to talk in person. Her energy and positive attitude is contagious and can be heard throughout our conversation. I know you’re going to love listening to her as much as I did.

 

Be sure to share this episode with a friend and don’t miss out on Lorna’s giveaway that she mentions in the show!

“The most powerful way to raise the vibration of our world is to fully honor who we came here to be.” – Kristin Ace

 

Today I want to talk about you becoming YOU. Not the “you” you think you should be, but the you that honors your soul – at all corners of it. So ask yourself, in what ways are you honoring your soul? Now, in what ways are you absolutely denying your soul, suffocating yourself or cutting yourself off?

 

Chances are that if you found more things in the latter categories you’re feeling out of alignment with your higher self, which is why with every choice we make, we must choose the choice that keeps us aligned. It’s not easy sometimes (OK a lot of the time). We typically don’t roll out of bed in the morning and feel connected. We must create the experiences that fill our souls.

 

I know you may be questioning what that really feels like, but trust me. You’ll know you’re following the path your soul wants you to take when you feel in flow, connected and free especially in terms of self-expression. Keep in mind that just because you’re doing things that are on this path doesn’t mean that you won’t feel any fear or stress. I often find that the fear isn’t the around the actual act, but the thoughts around doing the act. Fear is still necessary (but it usually helps us in the long run).

 

“Fear is a direct indicator of where you need to go.”

 

So, what’s an experience that you’re being pulled toward right now? Seriously, anything – nothing is too small, big or outrageous! Bike riding, writing, creating, painting, horseback riding, bungee jumping… What will make you feel alive, bring you awareness, excitement, relaxation or learning – or all of the above and more? Both projects and play are equally important, so again, listen to what your soul is calling you to do.

 

“You already know what you are. It’s time to create those experiences to become you.”

 

For the next 30 days, I challenge you to create one soul experience a day. It doesn’t have to be anything big – sometimes the small stuff leads to bigger shifts anyway. See how people react to you. You’ll likely notice that people are more drawn to you when you’re in alignment. I can personally tell when I’m in my highest self because when I go for runs I get more high-fives and more smiles all around – and I FEEL more creative.

 

Give yourself the space to hear your soul and I would love if you would report your findings in the comments of this episode’s IG tile @loriharder. I cannot wait to read them!

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • What it feels like to be in and out of alignment with your soul
  • Why we must create experiences that connect us with our highest self
  • Why fear or pain is an inevitable component of finding the real you

I’m so honored to have my friend and mentor, Lewis Howes, on again. We talk about his new book Mask of Masculinity, which drops on Oct. 31, and how he came up with the idea to write it.

 

While this book was written primarily for men, I discovered that his book is also a helpful tool for women who are looking to understand the men in their lives. Heck, it can help you understand ALL human beings and the masks that people wear to hide or perhaps enhance who they truly are. Once we’re aware of these masks and can accept them, we can tap into a deeper level of connection to all human beings.

 

--

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • How did you know what direction you wanted to head in your business endeavors?
  • How do you know to follow through with an idea?
  • How did you transcend when family and friends tried to hold you back?
  • Do you feel if our parents would have lived more in their purpose we would have gotten more from them and had a richer experience?
  • In terms of dreams and goals, how do you and your girlfriend support one another?
  • Why did you still feel unfulfilled when you were so close to getting everything you wanted?
  • What are the 9 Masks of Masculinity and how did you come up with them?
  • Looking back on your career, would you do anything differently?
  • Were you afraid of feedback? What was the worst feedback you pictured?
  • When you wrote Mask of Masculinity, did anything unexpected come up for you?
  • How would you advise women who’ve been cracked open emotionally to help the men in their lives do the same?
  • Who is the ideal audience for your book?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • What it means to fill in the gaps and spaces in the world
  • Creating more abundance by letting go
  • Surrounding yourself with friends who have similar energy
  • The importance of communication in relationships and why they must support your dreams (even if that support is minimal)
  • Why growth and contribution are the art of achievement (and fulfillment)
  • The 9 Masks of Masculinity talked about in Lewis’s book, Mask of Masculinity, and how he came up with them

  • Only taking feedback if it resonates with you and/or comes from someone you trust and respect

Quotes:

 

“I’ve found fulfillment in being secure in who I am in the moment.”

 

“My dreams are my priority.”

 

“Live with your responsibilities, but also find the path of your dreams.”

 

“When we fixate on making money to gain self-worth, it’s never enough.”

 

“It’s the most selfish thing to give because you feel the best.”

 

“The masks help us get results.”

 

“It’s unfulfilling to always be right and to win at all costs.”

 

“When we can fully let go of these masks and connect to people and have them see us – and fully get us – what’s when true intimacy and connection occurs.”

 

“It’s our responsibility to be aware when we’re wearing a mask.”

 

“Every moment I’m not making an impact I’m wasting the gift I was born with.”

 

“My fuel is based on the fear of regretting at the end of my life that I didn’t give enough.”

 

“When we are acknowledged, we feel like we can do more good.”

Have you ever caught yourself making a decision that you didn’t whole-heartedly want to commit to? Perhaps someone gave you advice or maybe there was an expectation set months before about something.

 

Today’s episode is all about making decisions that you actually feel good about. It’s trusting that inner gut and knowing that you made the right call for you.

 

“We all have inner wisdom and you know what is best for you.”

 

So why don’t we use this supposed guru ability? I promise it’s there, you just have to unlock it again. I’ve learned over the years (more so recently) that if I’m not slowing down and taking the time to get clear on what’s truly right for me, I’m scattered and super indecisive.

 

Did you catch that? Slow down and give yourself space – both physically and mentally. (Confession… those words may or may not be more for me than you as I am taking my own advice daily.) For me that’s taking long walks, going for a run or just going somewhere quiet to connect with my own thoughts. And keep in mind that it can take as little time as 15-60 minutes. Even if it’s not clear in that amount of time, see what pulls at your heart even just a little.

 

I’m not gonna lie. Some answers will come quicker than others. And often “sleeping on it” helps the most (science proves it)! Regardless of how quickly the answers come, know that you are the expert on YOU. Repeat the following phrases to help reinforce this notion.

 

“I have an inner guide. I have the wisdom within.”

 

Know that wisdom comes in many different forms and at the most random times. Learn what things make you feel good and that all is right with your world. After all…

 

“You are the smartest person you know when it comes to you.”

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • How to trust your “gut feeling”
  • Why we need space and time to make decisions
  • Why we find it easier to listen to others about what we want

With all of the recent events happening in the world between natural disasters, attacks and the loss of many lives, I’ve been asked how one should feel about these events. I’ve held back on responding because honestly, I didn’t know how I felt. I hadn’t even begun to process my feelings yet. But I do know that if we’re living in fear, it does nothing for the world.

“When you are in fear, you are not in power.”

So how do you take that power back? First, process your feelings – don’t pass them over. Heal yourself so you can spread love and light to others. Talk to someone, whether it’s a counselor, going to a trauma center or a dear friend who you know holds that space for you. Just be sure to give yourself the grace and space to process.

Once you’ve healed, be sure to keep that love and light in your life by surrounding yourself with those who allow you to do the same.

“Our environments reflect the results we get back in our minds.”

We know that if we stay connected to these groups or tribes we can nip fear and powerlessness in the bud and step into our power.

“When we put loving energy out it will be reflected to us in a bigger way in our lives.”

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why it’s important to process our feelings
  • How to take back your power when you feel powerless
  • Why we must join groups or tribes that are rooted in love and light

Regardless of where you are, I know Christine’s perspective will help you view your obstacles and the emotional ties to them in a whole new light.

Many don’t know this, but when I start selling my first eCourse, The Bliss Habit, I hadn’t even created it. Shocking, right? But it supports exactly what I want to talk with you all about today. You don’t have to know everything that you are doing before you actually get started!

I know it sounds a little bass-ackwards, but I assure you that some of the most successful people in the world had no clue what they were doing when they first started – they just knew they had to take some sort of action.

“You have to start doing to get clarity.”

You can plan all day every day for months and still never have anything to put out there. This is where faith and commitment comes in. You must have faith that if you set a date or book a venue – take some sort of step forward, it will happen. Scary, right?

“But in the panic there is complete magic.”

And a little bit of science, too. Science has proven that when you’re committed and people are saying “yes,” and you have to deliver, your brain gets super laser-focused on doing just that.

“The way to get started is to stop talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney

My advice. Set the date and move forward. There’s no magic formula – just go for it. Make the commitment and take action TODAY!

What will you share with someone or commit to today?

You'll Hear About:

• Why you don’t have to know all the details before you get started

• Why it’s so important to have faith

• Why making a commitment can spur productivity

As many of you know, my upcoming Bliss Project event is only months away and hundreds of you have already registered to join us. But I know that for some, you’re still on the fence for various reasons… Perhaps this would be your first self-development/empowerment retreat. For others, you’ve never left your family for a whole weekend. For others, there is a fear that you’re not “far enough” or knowledgeable enough to attend such an event.

 

Whatever the reason, I can assure you that if you’re being called to attend, it’s the perfect event for you to attend. But don’t take my word on it. Listen in to today’s conversation as I interview five women about their Bliss Project experiences. You will notice many overlapping answers and that’s because we are all way more alike than we are different.

 

Whether you come along or bring a friend, the weekend WILL change your life. I cannot wait for you to hear all about it (and hopefully experience it in the near future) and join our INCREDIBLE Bliss Project tribe.

Up until very recently, I felt like I had a handle on facing my fears and getting comfortable with being uncomfortable, but I’ve come to realize that I haven’t even scratched the surface!

 

This weekend, I’m speaking at an event (THRIVE), and while I’m speaking to like-minded people, it’s not my usual audience. It’s got me stepping outside of my comfort zone and feeling all sorts of butterflies. It’s super beautiful and exciting but scary – all at the same time.

 

This quote I posted on Instagram sums up this fear, excitement and growth that I’m feeling and who I need to become to get through it:

 

“You’ll never grow into the woman you know you’re meant to be until she’s forced to come out. It’s your job to create a life she can’t hide from.”

 

So what does this mean? It’s our job to create a life based on not our current selves, but instead our future selves. You have to do the things, go to the places and let that woman out!

 

“You will rise to the occasion when your butt is on the line.”

 

Sounds scary, I know, but that’s the point. We all have “alter egos” that only come out when called upon, but you must have faith that it will appear. If you create these places when you have so much riding on your performance your higher self will come out. And if it doesn’t happen the way you think and you fall flat on your face…GOOD! You didn’t die, your learned from it and you know how to change it for next time.

 

“I’d rather be failing left and right and feeling alive and growing as a human being than walking around bored and half dead.”

 

There is no magic potion. We are ALL created the same, some just have more faith that things will work out and their higher self won’t let them down.

 

“Choose and create things that you have to show up for bigger than you ever have before.”

Stop waiting and create those places and situations where your higher self can come alive! It will scare the crap out of you, but that’s when you know you’re living a life of purpose and fulfillment. 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why you must get uncomfortable to grow
  • Steps that will help you step into your higher self
  • How we all have alter egos that come out when you need to level up

I am so excited for you to hear my conversation with successful serial entrepreneur, Mike Zeller. From real estate and men’s fashion to digital marketing and sustainable home goods, he’s committed to serving others (in a variety of businesses) and sharing the shifts he makes along the way.

 

Always an ambitious person, Mike used to once run himself ragged to the point of near burnout. However, throughout his experiences, he came to realize that taking time off from the “hustle” is needed and now actually increases his fulfillment levels in both business and his quality of life. If you’re looking to kick up the fulfillment levels in your life, I highly recommend tuning in to hear Mike’s valuable insights and knowledge bombs.

This past week, I’ve been feeling the importance of my tribe on a whole new level. If you listened to my podcast with Mastin Kipp last week, you’ll understand what I mean when I say, “With every new level there’s a new devil.” This could not be more true!

 

With my recent 14-Day Challenge wrapping up at the beginning of this week, I had a few instances come up that reminded me of the fact that the more challenges I do and the more people who join my tribe, the more diverse group of people I’m going to attract. And guess what? Even those these people are a part of my larger tribe, we all have different backgrounds and I’m not going to please everyone. It’s also a given that we’re not always going to understand one another.

 

It seems so simple when you write it out like that, but I didn’t get there as easily. As a verbal processor, I depended on the support of my own personal tribe to get me there. This is a group of people who I’ve collected over time and who I know hold space for me when I need it. And let’s just say I sent out the Bat Signal for them this week!

 

“Your tribe gives you feedback, but they’re also there just to hear you.”

 

Feedback is always welcome, however sometimes it doesn’t help. This is why all relationships must be two-sided. There must be agreements in place and space held for the other party to process as well.

 

“We have to create boundaries and we have to set clear ideas of what the relationship is.”  

 

This is, of course, different for every relationship and that is why you must communicate or one person may turn resentful. For me personally, I have a variety of tribe members. There are those that allow me to process, hold me accountable, support me, strategize, execute and celebrate. These lines do blend every now and then, but at the end of the day, I know who I can go to when I need it.

 

So out of the above categories, which would help you the most right now? And which is the easiest to implement? If you’re having trouble choosing one, you must work on focusing your attention to that.

 

“If you haven’t found what you want yet, it’s simply because you haven’t applied focus consistently.”

 

I know this is hard to hear, but as a person who has (and still can) struggle with this, I know it will change your life and help you tackle each new challenge that comes your way.

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • That challenges never go away, they just change
  • Why finding a variety of people is so crucial in building your tribe
  • How you can set and practice fierce boundaries with your tribe
