leangela nola girl “Lori: I must say how much your podcast has helped me. A couple months ago I decided to take the journey of finding my true self. Your podcast is taking me on this journey. I’m so thankful for your wisdom and insight. You are helping me to accept the fact that I’m in control of my reality and my reality is my responsibility. I’m taking what I want and I’m anointing myself. Women need to hear your message. Thanks a ton.”

 

Question Highlights:

  • Michelle asks.. I have a Q for Lori, how does one have less and less mental breakdowns per week, per month, per year. I am trying to improve my life by having less mental/emotional breakdowns. I feel like sometimes I don’t ask for what I need or I bottle up emotions so that leads to them. I would love your personal take on this! Thank you!!! Love you Lori!!!
  • Alissa asks… My question is about social anxiety because I've realized that this is something I suffer from when I'm around new people.
  • Do you have any tips for overcoming social anxiety and how to feel confident in a room with people you don't know well?

Quotes

"It’s about really making an empowered decision from your intuition. “No, there’s something that’s actually out of alignment here that I don’t want to be a part of.” I feel like if we drop into that space and we become anchored in our truth, there’s nothing that we can really get overly triggered by because we know we’re listening to our soul and not running around in fear because of our mind.”

“Really taking this entire month just celebrating everything that’s been created, and to be with myself and all of that process to just reflect on all the growth, all the evolution of things in business, and just be in deep gratitude and celebration.”

 

Caty Pasternak believes that we are all meant to EXPERIENCE our power as conscious creators and to live with radical authenticity, love, and abundance. Within her first year, she created a multiple six-figure coaching business. And it wasn’t because of a fancy marketing tactic…..it was because of my embodiment, creativity, and energy.

Caty also creates content for multiple channels, as well as posting weekly videos to her Youtube channel, and her podcast, Sexy Soul Radio.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Grace during the holiday season
  • Expectations put upon us
  • Why you should stop trying to be enough
  • Teaching people how to treat you

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes

Today I felt it really necessary to talk about expectations and not being enough. We are going to flip the script a bit today though, and rather than talk about our own expectations, we are going to chat about the expectations that people have on us. On the book tour, I noticed that there were so many people who felt this nagging expectation from people in their past to keep showing up how they used to show up. We’ve all heard it, “Oh, you aren’t the same person.” Well today, I’m going to free you from that–I’m giving you the permission to disappoint other people.

I also wanted to remind you to get your tickets to The Bliss Project, coming to Newport Beach, CA this March. It is going to be an incredible weekend of complete life transformation & immersion!

 

Quotes

“”The more grace that you can have with yourself, and let go of those expectations, and just say, “You know what, I’m going to be really present and I’m just going to stay in motion.””

  • @empowermentwithelizabeth: “I’m planning a retreat and I’m curious about the process of Bliss Project–how you went from the idea to executing it. How did it get from an idea to reality?”
  • @victoriaevansofficial: “How do you seperate your physique from your self-worth? I’m really struggling right now not to put so much value on my body after losing weight. I’m having a hard time seeing myself as my body. Did you ever struggle with this as you were competing in fitness?”  

 

Review of the Week:

“Lori, I can’t thank you enough for what both your book and podcast have done for me. When I went through a messy breakup with my ex, one of my friends/fellow coaches suggested this book to me and your podcast. I’ll be honest, at first I was apprehensive. So many friendships and relationships have been burnt in my life, why light another candle and redevelop a tribe? But, you’ve given me the courage to be brave, to step up, and to anoint my own dang self with self-love, encouragement, bravery, and replacement of negativity, fear, judgement, etc. With positivity, compassion, understanding, I’m excited to see where your journey takes you because you’ve helped so many of us and deserve the best. Keep rockin it sista!”

  • Releasing our energetic cords

Today, I want to talk about focus. So many of us believe that we have to care about every little thing, and that our value is determined by just how caring we are. This causes so much scattered focus, leading to us actually not doing anything for what we truly care about. We are going to talk about our superpowers and energetic cords, and how to release them in order to move forward.

I am beyond excited to share this episode with each one of you, especially if you’re ready for incredible wisdom to totally pierce your soul, because today I am joined by Dr. Erin Haskell. Dr. Erin Haskell is the creator and host of Good Morning LALALAND, a live streaming television show focused on reporting good news and inspiration. She has so much truth, light, and intention in all that she does. Erin is an all around go-getter and spectacular woman, and I knew she would be a great guest to have on the show.

In this conversation, we talk about how Erin likes to start off all of her meetings with an invocation for the group, plus she shares her story and how she found her way to being the Doctor of Divinity. We go deep into how and why we should reprogram ourselves from past stories and traumas, and releasing fears and anxieties. Erin also shares ways that we can work on ourselves in relationships, how to free yourself from judgement, and both finding and understanding our own truths.

This conversation moved me, and truly shifted my soul. I can’t wait for you all to listen and have a little piece of Dr. Erin in your life today, too.

 

Question Highlights:

  • What was the pivot from darkness to the first step out of darkness?
  • How do we gain the willingness to look + start working on reprogramming?
  • What is the best way to release fear and impostor syndrome?
  • How do you allow you to show up for yourself?
  • What to do around finding your truth without the judgement?
  • How can you free people up around relationships?
  • What can we think of to get back to a neutral state in order to make decisions when in relationships?
  • What is an ultimate truth? A relative truth?
  • What type of ministry does Erin practice?
  • What is Erin’s book, Awakening, about?

 

Quotes

"All those judgements, al that stacking up of self-judgement, and that gets triggered when we are touching on our greatness."

"Relatives truths are what’s true for you."

"You are here to judge; you’re here to say what works for you and what doesn’t work for you."

“That is the highest stance is to not make anyone wrong.”

“When you do your own work, everyone around you transforms instantaneously.”

“We need to have fun, we need to play, but we need to remember what we’re here for which is really… we’re here to do work.”

 

Dr. Erin Fall Haskell, Doctor of Divinity, New Thought Leader, Transformational Author and Speaker, Conscious Entrepreneur, Global Peace Leader Award 2016, Mother and Lover of Life!

Erin lives in Los Angeles, where she is featured in television, radio, magazines, and top blogs as the expert “Spiritual Coach.” She is the “Dear Abby” of the consciousness movement where she focuses on bringing fun to “The Shift” in La La Land. After many years of counseling top celebrities and Grammy winners she wanted to bring her programs to the masses. Her book Awakening; A 30-Day Guide to Unleashing Your Inner Guru, comes to bookstores near you in 2017. Claiming her birthright of prosperity and abundance, she is a self-made millionaire and an active philanthropist. Bottom line, she attributes her happiness and fulfillment to the spiritual truth, which is not just knowing the universal truth, but living it!

“There are moments in life when something happens, life alters, and your entire perception transforms instantaneously.” For Erin, that moment was 22 years ago when she was holding her stillborn son in her arms, just after giving birth to him. “Tears were streaming down my face as I looked at his beautiful body and realized his body was still there, but he wasn’t. I realized he wasn’t his body; he is a spiritual being. One can conceptually understand that we are not these bodies, but I got it on an entirely different level, my entire world crumbled, delivering me to spiritual revelation.” This sent her on an intense spiritual quest traveling around the world, discovering truths and working with gurus and spiritual masters learning how to live and embody the truths that had been revealed.

291: Your Journey WILL Be Messy, and That's PERFECT
08:44

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • The current Tribe Called Bliss book tour
  • Why “the messy stuff” is good for you

 

Show Notes

Messy is a part of everything. It’s vital to be messy in the beginning. We don’t get the good ideas if it’s NOT messy.

A lot of times we stop ourselves from doing things because we think about the things that we DON’T want to happen; the worst case scenario parts.  But we need to focus and change our perspective around this.

So many of us are stuck in those thoughts that you’re literally it won’t even allow yourself to move forward.  START! Start Googling, take the next action to make the path less scary.

Your mantra for this time is: “I’m going to leap, it’s going to be messy, and that is going to be perfect.”

I am so beyond grateful for today’s guest, Dr. Joe Dispenza. His books and teachings were at the very beginning of my journey and completely shifted everything for me. I believe there are moments in life that impact you so deeply and you’re never the same. In this episode, I talk about that moment and how everything I looked at changed forever. 

As an international lecturer, researcher, author and educator, Dr. Joe believes that each of us has the potential for greatness and unlimited abilities. This is why his passion has led him to educate thousands of people on how they can rewire their brains and recondition their bodies to make lasting changes. I can tell you firsthand that this is what he did for me. I truly believe his teachings were the beginning of rewiring the way I think. With a passion for neuroscience, epigenetics and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions and evolved consciousness. You will be blown away by Dr. Joe’s miraculous stories!

  • Can you paint a picture of what it looks like when a person knows what to do but can’t quite visualize it?
  • What’s the connection between moving your body and getting into a new environment and accelerating that change?
  • Can you tell me about your events?

 

Quotes

"It’s so much easier to forget our vision than it is to remember it.”

“We’re innately wired to be creators.”

288: How to Prepare for the Tests Life Throws at You
19:15

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • The need for tests in order to realize our dreams
  • Fear of tests
  • Supporting yourself

 

Resources:

 

Show Notes

I just returned from being on an Oprah Magazine Cruise with Holland America and am still sitting in the experience. I met so many amazing people and got to speak to and coach a different demographic than I’m used to. And while having lunch and random conversations with so many of these people throughout the week, I realized that we’re all the same, and we’re all tested at one time or another. 

Never be ashamed of your dreams or the thing you want to do the most. There will always be tests along the way that test your faith. And while they’re often super uncomfortable, they are 100% necessary to help you realize your dreams. Instead of giving up, say “bring it!” This is your faith practice. It’s digging in your heels, being scared, and not feeling good – and moving forward anyway. After all how can you be tested if you’re not experiencing it?

“It’s OK to be afraid, but it’s not OK to give up." 

So lean in. Experience it. Let time help you work through it. Your faith is tested by often extreme measures. Learn how to support yourself through it. Who can you call? Can you pray, meditate or read a book? What keeps that faith alive? Just as you would study or prepare for a test, you must prepare (not avoid) the tests that come up around your dream.

“Don’t resist the test, prepare for it – it’s how you pass.”

These tests will strengthen you and help refine what you’re meant to do. Stop avoiding them.

“You don’t get better or get the reward unless you keep showing up – no matter the result.”

So keep showing up. Let go where you can and know that you’re not alone. Something beautiful is just around the corner. Are you ready for it?

283: You Will Get Caught Being Yourself

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Releasing expectations
  • Being yourself
  • Lori’s newest spoken word poem

Show Notes

I have been on a major rollercoaster this year (an awesome, but scary one), and I think it is so vital that I share with all of you why stepping into and becoming the your highest self is the hardest thing you’ll ever do. 

I’ve been tackling some really big things lately – lots of speaking gigs, book tour events etc., and not gonna lie, they’re all freaking me out. But here’s my trick to getting through them all – I’m letting go of any expectations I have around the outcomes.

“In order for me to work through fear, I have to fully accept anything and everything can happen.”

There is no ONE thing that is going to make or break my life. And as I navigate each any every new thing, I gain more and more clarity around being truly me. Full honesty, I feel the most alive and “myself” that I’ve ever felt. You see, there is zero room for being something that you’re not, because eventually you’re going to get caught being yourself. For me, that’s showing the side of me that loves to perform spoken word, sing (future podcast performance?), and swear. Parents, this may mean putting “earmuffs” on the kiddos now and again. Keep in mind, I’m not trying to purposely offend anyone – it’s just how I express myself on occasion.

For example, in this episode I’m sharing a 30-second excerpt of a new spoken word piece I’m working on…I drop the F-bomb once, but it’s because that was the word that moved me in the moment. It’s about being yourself with a bit of discernment for your audience, right? 

So here’s to stepping into a new version of yourself! Who’s with me and how soon do you want to do it? Whenever that moment takes place, please let me know so I can cheer you on!

281: Why Your Passion Still Requires Hard Work
41:58

I’m so excited for you all to hear my conversation with the magical trifecta that is Betches Media – Samantha Fishbein, Jordana Abraham and Aleen Kuperman. With a following of more than 6 million followers on Instagram, their presence has taken social media by storm with their funny and light-hearted approach to wellness, dating, careers, pop culture, politics and more. If you haven’t heard of them, I highly recommend traveling down their entertaining Instagram rabbit hole (I did and it was incredible).

In an effort to offer the missing female counterpart to the “bro” culture, these three college friends decided to share their voice and opinions with the masses. With an obvious need fulfilled, their website at the time took off and has since morphed into podcasts, an eCommerce store, books and so much more.

With two books already under their belts, a third book, “When’s Happy Hour,” which focuses on careers is set to release Oct. 23. Whether you’re in college, unfulfilled by your job or fulfilled but driven for more, this book will teach you how to succeed in a career and make yourself better – with lots of laughs along the way.

These women are redefining what it means to love what you do, and I’m so happy they’re taking us all along for the ride.

 

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • What Betches Media is all about and how it was founded
  • Taking action and creating content
  • Taking an honest look what you’re good at – and what you’re not so good at
  • Importance of planning
  • Self-awareness
  • Monetizing what you’re good at
  • The ups and downs of eCommerce
  • How Betches found their voices through speaking the thoughts that other people were thinking
  • How Betches deal with criticism
  • How Betches manage their friendships
  • Who Betches wrote “When’s Happy Hour” for
  • Redefining what it means to love what you do

 

 

Resources:

 

 

Question Highlights:

  • Could you explain and break down what you’re doing in your business?
  • How did you all get started and what was your intention in the beginning – and how has it changed since then?
  • Why did you pick the topic for your new book?
  • In the beginning of your business, what were the parts you loved to do and what parts were challenging?
  • What do you do to protect and nurture your relationships with each other?
  • What are your favorite parts of what you’re doing now?
  • What is a question you wish more people would ask you?
  • What are some new challenges coming up for your business right now?
  • Who is your new book, “When’s Happy Hour,” for?

 

 

Quotes

"It’s better that people are saying something, even if it’s not good, than not saying anything at all. At least criticism shows that people care.”

“Even the most amazing job that allows you to follow your passion is work.”

“Follow what makes you happy, what you’re good and what moves you, and live in a way that aligns with that.”

 

Betches is a multi-platform media company for millennial women to experience comedy and empowerment in an honest environment. Founded in 2011 by Cornell University alumni Aleen Kuperman, Samantha Fishbein, and Jordana Abraham, the company was launched as a blog with the core column “Betches Love This.” Betches has since expanded to become a robust, digital destination that boasts a strong social media presence through their cult Instagram with more than 6.2 million followers, @Betches, two New York Times bestselling books, I Had a Nice Time And Other Lies… and Nice Is Just a Place in France, e-commerce platform, Shop Betches, and vast editorial content including multiple pop-culture, political, and new-centric podcasts and video.

280: Spoken Word Poem: Fear Marks the Spot
17:54

This past weekend I was invited to write and share a new spoken word poem at my soul sister, Danette May’s event. To say I was terrified is putting it mildly, but I did it! And while I’m still processing my the journey and the emotions around it, one thing I know for certain is that my fear is always the X that marks the spot when it comes to what fulfills me and makes me feel like I’m living in my highest potential.

I shared a couple clips of the poem on social media, but have gotten several requests to hear the poem in its entirety. Always one to feel the fear again (why?!), I’ve recorded it on this episode and have provided the words below. If my words pull at your soul and you know someone else who would benefit, please share. Thanks so much for all of your support!

Here we go…

I got up today only to find that I’m still not yet where I want to be

A little less “I woke up like this” 

A little more - “existential crisis” – feeling stuck in my reality.

 

When I think about who I am now, compared to who I think I’m supposed to be 

I wake up every morning, AND INSTEAD of doing things that set me free

I put on a straight-jacket and wear someone else’s identity. 

 

Not even accepting myself on my own ID 

Height one inch taller

Weight 10 pounds smaller

Anyone else fear a lie detector test at the DMV – or is it just me?

 

Just the thought of trying to change my life makes me feel defeated 

Like I got the short end of the stick

Or like this bitch over here got all the talent 

And I got cheated.

 

When I close my eyes, I can see my life’s vision

But when I open them, I can’t see past my email, my thighs, my to-do list and dirty kitchen

I mean what’s it gonna take to reach my dream, be seen, and get attention?

Instead of growing my mind

I put all my energy towards beauty, titles and Instagram mentions.

 

When will I be enough?

Thanks to Fairytales and Ariel, I’ve spent my whole life chasing people and stuff

“Look at this stuff isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?”

 

Still waiting for my Prince Charming, castle and Fairy Godmother

Jerry Maguire said, “You complete me” 

So feeling enough must ONLY come from a love.r

 

So many mixed messages, it’s no wonder we’re confused

The world tries keeping us busy stressing over low carbs, waist trainers and red-bottom shoes

They sidetrack us from our purpose with diets and promises of youth

But it’s a choice to decide to be committed to finding and living your truth.

 

The other day I was walking past a man in conversation with his mate

He said, and I quote, “You deserve the life you tolerate”

I just about choked

Cause at that point in my day I was feeling upset

Sorry for myself because there are unlived dreams I haven’t met yet

If what I tolerate is the life that I’m living 

then you’re telling me it’s been my choice to not use these gifts I’ve been given?

 

They say through ownership I can get my power back

I gotta be honest – easier said than done

I was really hoping this whole personal development thing would be a little more fun…

 

True story – I was recently at an event like this

Sitting in the audience

And from the stage I felt the speakers words hit me in the soul much like a deliverance:

I am not what you think I am; I am not what I think I am; I am what I think you think I am.”

Let me repeat that….

I am not what you think I am; I am not what I think I am; I am what I think you think I am”

Moral of the story is the only thing that’s stopping us, is what other people think 
Get your mind off other people’s shit 
And put your soul back in the driver’s seat! 

The only thing wrong with you is that you think something is wrong with you.

 

Everything is right with you 

In spite of you

Ignoring the higher you

The answers are all inside of you

So why are you

Gripping onto others view

When what they think of you is… 

NOTHING. Because they’re only thinkin’ about themselves.

 

The truth will set you free,

But first it will piss you off

And the truth is:

If you keep fighting for your limitations, you get to keep them

It’s time to stop choosing suffering 

and choose to fight for your queendom. 

 

I know the life I’m born for and the woman I’m supposed to be

I’m embarrassed to tell you my soul is an undercover celebrity

So where do I go if I believe the life I have now must be disputed 

It’s like I can see I’m on screen

But my voice has been muted

It’s been so long since I’ve used it, or maybe I never learned how

But lately something’s stirring, rising up telling me my time is now.

 

What stops us are the lies we choose to believe

It’s an imagined future of pain that we think we perceive 

It’s when I’m alone that my fears go viral

Next is panic, then my anxiety starts to spiral. 

 

I’m picturing judgment, comparison, an imagined future that’s not even real 

It’s our past informing our future telling us how to feel!

I believe the reason we feel pain is because we need to bridge the gap,

Between our fear and our faith in our source and its unlimited tap.

 

In order to become the woman I’m chasing

I have to let go of the woman I’m facing

The mirror is the place where you have to fall in love

With all the scars from our past 

Reconfigure them from curses, into gifts from above

Trusting that what you have now is what you need to begin

And who’ll you’ll become will transform as you start to step in.

 

If I don’t start to take action now, it will be consequential 

Because my biggest fear is dying, without reaching my highest potential

‘Cuz it just takes one to change your family tree

and your bravery and courage is bringing your ancestors to their knees

They may not have been able to use their voice or have what you do

That’s why you must take action,

They have blazed this trail for you.

 

But we have to wake up from the lie, and emerge from our comas

To stop sleepwalking through life requires more than a kiss from a prince or diploma.

 

See, the magic of life is that it gives you clues

And if you’re open and seeking you get glimpses of truth

And in case it’s still in question, YES you’ve been chosen, you’re forgiven it’s written

But you gotta SHOW UP - STAND UP - RISE UP - stop sittin’.

 

The map to your bliss is to follow it, and keep showing up

It’s going to be messy, your hands will shake, you’ll get criticized and you’ll want to throw up

Becoming the biggest version of you is the scariest thing you’ll do 

You’ll have darkness and pain and some friends will leave you.

 

But I’m going to let you in on life’s ultimate hack

It’s that you get to choose gratitude even when it feels like the universe doesn’t have your back.

God wants to use you

He guides those who are willing

And it’s not up to you to decide if your dream is worth killing

 

You’ve got a soul contract to live into your life’s call 

Don’t worry about failing, you will, it’s a part of it    

But you’ve got sisters here to catch you when you fall

Choose love

Choose forgiveness 

Choose courage

Choose your truth.

 

Every single time you show up 

It gives more hope for our youth

Stay close to what makes you feel ALIVE

Don’t just survive 

That’s not why you’re here

But you gotta continue to do the things that help you get clear.

 

PAY ATTENTION to soul hits, nudges and winks

AND whenever you get them, take action and don’t think

Sometimes when I’m quiet, when I’m running, or if Eminem’s rapping

I’ll lose myself in the music and feel God start the tapping

On three, everybody get up, we’re gonna start clapping

 

3, 2, 1…

 

Sister you're a star – you’re a strong girl

Playin’ in your gifts - gonna start to change the world today

You got glitter on yo' face

Your hair’s in place

Spreading your magic all over the place

 

Singin’

 

We will, we will rise up

We will, we will rise up

Show Notes

My friend, founder of Organifi and now author, Drew Canole is back on the show and I couldn’t be more happy as I feel a bit like I need to redeem myself after my last interview with him – I can’t believe how nervous I was last time! Since that time, not only have we hung out multiple times, but we’ve participated in a week-long retreat in Costa Rica together as well. I never knew it was possible to laugh so much! Drew has definitely helped me see that fun is a requirement of up-leveling our lives!

Drew has a unique ability to help others tap into different parts of their lives and uncover who they truly are. And one of the primary ways Drew is doing that today is through his new book, You Be You, where he guides readers to “detox their lives, crush their limitations and own their awesome.” Why achieve your goals or present the world with a counterfeit version of yourself when it will never feel completely true to who you are?

Be prepared to have a lot of laughs and hear a lot of wisdom in our candid conversation. And if you’re looking for a way to unlock that next level of being YOU, definitely pick up his book!

 

Question Highlights:

  • Why did you pick the title of your book?
  • When you’re in your “light body,” what does that feel like?
  • In the past, who did you think you needed to be in order to navigate through life in a successful way?
  • Do you ever go through “seasons” – a winter or a dry spell?
  • Once you achieve a goal, what do you do next? How do you unlock the next level?

278: What You Have To Do NEXT in Order to GROW
16:35

Fair warning to you before you start listening to today’s episode – I am en fuego! Having just attended Lewis Howes’ Summit of Greatness and being surrounded by 1,500+ big thinkers, there’s no way I couldn’t be. It’s events like these that force me to take chances and go for the things that scare the living crap out of me!

 

“Fear is your invite for growth.”

 

The purpose of life is growth and progress. We are all meant to find what makes us fulfilled and happy, but sometimes that’s the thing we fear the most.

 

As an exercise, I want you to write down the 10 things you’re most afraid of – they can be big or small. These are your next steps. From here, circle the least scary step – or perhaps the scariest step. Whichever you choose, act on it, no matter how uncomfortable or scared you are. Rejection or failure is inevitable, but the biggest gifts are on the other side.

 

No, I’m not super human, but I will say after receiving 21 rejections on my books, I am grateful for them because they helped me land the publishing company that liked it! Plus, consistently doing the things that I have fear around helps me grow and throughout that process I’m also showing thousands of others that they too can do it.

 

Most recently one of my fears is about sharing a spoken word poem I wrote for my friend, Danette May’s event this weekend. I love doing this, but I’m terrified of what others think! (Be sure to tune in because I’m sharing a small portion of it with you.) But here’s the thing, I want to grow and I don’t want to leave this world living up to anything less than my highest potential. I do mess up while reading it, but I’ve left it in because I want you to see that sometimes we have to mess up and let others see it in order to free them as well. I hope it gives you some of that freedom, too.

 

So today, stop playing small. Do something messy, unplanned or share something that doesn’t feel good. And be sure to share it with me over on IG…I love hearing from you!

277: How to Become the Person Who Makes BIG Impact with Tom Bilyeu
01:00:27

I am so thrilled today to have Tom Bilyeu on the show! I recently had the amazing opportunity and experience of being interviewed on his podcast, Impact Theory and I couldn’t wait to continue the conversation and learn even more about the similarities in our lives and business – and this time, pick his brain.

 

Similar to my journey, Tom grew up in a family who struggled with their weight, and broke the pattern by choosing to pave a healthier way for himself and as result change the trajectory of his life at the same time. That’s why today he’s so passionate about helping others who struggle with their weight. However, Tom is the first to acknowledge that it’s not always an easy path. In fact, when it comes to success in weight loss or a business or career, nothing is guaranteed – except the pain or struggle. And to get through any of that, you must take action and also accept that you may not be right about x-y-z right now. We have to be willing to make changes if we want to see change.

 

Tune in to learn just what Tom does that helps him do just that. He shares so many tangible takeaways for all of us to start looking at what we’re doing right now and more into our next level of life. Please let me know what thoughts or actions you put into place because of them!

  • Why the brain is malleable until we die
  • Embracing inadequacies

276: Anxiety and Productivity Hack!
17:00

Today I’m talking about the vital topic of taking action and curing those moments where you’re just sitting in pain thinking. The last week (typically in the mornings is when I struggle the most), I’ve been overthinking – everything. Have you ever caught yourself in a downward spiral like this? And it’s during moments like these that I’m really trying to work on shortening the amount of time they last.

 

“Pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice.”

 

Here’s my hack – even though I drag my feet sometimes. TAKE ACTION!

 

“Action cures anxiety.”

 

Here’s the thing, even something infinitesimally small and new leads to new results. Plus, when your mood is more neutral, and less in a place of suffering, you’re in a better place to welcome new ideas and opportunities. I’m not saying you need to take action all the time…far from it. After all, we need time to relax and connect with other people, but please do not choose suffering! Take the action that will make you feel better. (Trust me, I wouldn’t tell you anything that I wouldn’t tell myself!)

 

I want you to know that I see you taking uncertain actions despite those doubts in your head, and I’m cheering you on. Thank goodness for tribe because even though I’m scared too, I know I have a group of people that have my back regardless of what’s going on. And I’m here to tell you that no matter what you’re going through right now, I just want you to know that I think you’re magic. We are all magic and we’re not meant to suffer and play small! You need to keep pushing forward and sharing your uniqueness with the world!

 

Thank you so much for listening and supporting my podcast. If this message resonated with you, please share with a friend and be sure to shoot me a note on IG – I would love to hear how it resonated with you!

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Taking new action for new results
  • Limiting the time between taking action and suffering, and designating a time to rest
  • Why suffering is a choice

275: Go With Your Gut - The Journey of Releasing Emotional and Physical Weight with Robyn Youkilis
01:01:59

You know how every now and then you get lucky and have a conversation with someone who just “gets” you, your journey and how your brain works? Well, today’s guest, Robyn Youkilis checked that box. Growing up in a family that used food as a source of love, comfort and connection, I could completely relate. Don’t get me wrong this is a great thing, however the breaking point for Robyn (and myself) is when we started gaining weight and that warm, fuzzy connection went away and instead turned into a difficult connection.

 

Once she made this realization, Robyn set out to create a new conversation around food and weight. She didn’t want to view things as “good” or “bad,” rather she wanted to slow things down and figure out what foods would best support her body.

 

After much trial and error (that still happens on a daily basis), she now teaches others that it’s OK if you don’t have it all figured out – it may even take decades. It’s all about finding a formula that works for your body and adheres to what your intuition is telling you and keeps you in alignment. She also touches on how motherhood impacted her relationship with food and how it led to an impactful shift in her life then and now.

 

I had such a great time connecting with Robyn during this conversation. If you’re someone who struggles with your relationship with food, this episode is a must listen (and her book, Thin from Within, a must read).

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

  • What is your life philosophy and how did you get to this place?
  • What did the process of slowing down look for you?
  • How has food become a foundation for everything you’re doing?
  • What’s something in your life right now that you’re so excited about that you weren’t able to do before because food/body was taking up so much space in your brain?
  • What is lighting you up the most right now?
  • What is a question you wish more people would ask you?
  • Do you have a secret dream that you envision for your future?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Robyn’s relationship with food and how it changed at age 13
  • The emotional and physical weight of not living in alignment
  • Food as an experience
  • Robyn’s initial resistance with motherhood and how it was a major foundational shift for her
  • How Robyn has learned to slow down, connect with her body and intuition and gut, teach from that place and “calm the eff down”
  • How to connect with your body
  • Setting intention behind activities to achieve alignment
  • Finding your intuitive food voice
  • Robyn’s power yogurt parfait and Rule of Five Plate
  • The connection between your food/body and success in other areas of your life
  • Rockstar Coaching Program
  • Robyn’s new book, “Thin from Within”
  • Why Robyn wants people to how she “does it all”
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

 

“You feel good when you're connected to other people.”

 

“My body is my home.”

 

“Let your own story and journey be what you want it to be and know that it’s OK.”

 

“Go with your gut.”

274: Why Being Out Of "Alignment" Helps You
16:29

I’m fresh off a mastermind call with my closest sister friends and I’ve come to the realization that it’s OK to be a walking, breathing contradiction. Typically, when it comes to being in alignment, we’ve always talked about lining it up with our true purpose or highest potential. While I still believe this is a part of it, I also think a bigger part of it is being aligned with your truth in the present moment.

 

In order to feel this “truth” though you have to sometimes be out of alignment and feel those feelings, too. Sometimes this means feelings of darkness and ugliness or worry and insecurity. It’s super important though that we not stay in these feelings too long. Acknowledge them and that you feel out of alignment, and make the conscious choice to leave that dark place (or whatever emotion you’re feeling) when the time is right. Remember that this is all a part of the human experience and determine if there is something you could do to make yourself feel better.

 

Admittedly, I’m in a bit of a dark season right now. I have a ton of amazing things happening in my life now, but there’s this nagging voice in the back of my head that tells me I need to set some more goals and accomplish more. I’m in a season where I need to find self-worthiness without having a ton of goals to prove that I am. Can anyone relate?

 

Have I navigated my way through this particular season yet? No – I’m still working through it. So, right now I’m giving myself grace and allowing myself to feel all the feels. I’m choosing healthy outlets such as walks, nourishing foods and yes, sometimes crying it out, because choosing a downward spiral isn’t going to serve me in the long run. I’m committing to move forward…period.

 

I hope this helps you if you’re also going through a similar season. Continue to nurture yourself and one day, when things clear, you’ll realize that it was all meant to help you keep in alignment with your true purpose.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Redefining what alignment means
  • Why your value shouldn’t be tied to your accomplishments
  • The seasons of life

273: Turn Pain and Fear into Courage and Learn How to Talk to Anyone with Alex Banayan
01:00:21

I love a good story and today’s guest, author Alex Banayan has a great one – so much so that parts of it have become part of my husband Chris and I’s daily walks. Thank goodness I met him in person when Chris interviewed him so I knew whose stories he was actually talking about. ;) Another fun coincidence, we’ve both been on the Price Is Right, but Alex actually WON and used those winnings to fund his new book, The Third Door.

 

Alex shares with us his seven-year book journey that lead him to interview some of the world’s most successful people to show how they broke through and launched their careers. But let’s not downplay the fears and obstacles that Alex had to navigate through as well. From disappointing his family and losing his father to insecurity and being turned down by potential interviewees, Alex was persistent and now helps others conquer obstacles of all kinds – internal and external.

 

Alex truly is a gifted storyteller and I know you’ll be able to relate to some many facets of his journey. You don’t want to miss it!

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

  • Now that your book is out in the world, what has been a response that you weren’t expecting?
  • What was the whole point of writing your book?
  • What does pain with awareness look like for you right now?
  • Do you think there’s always a way for anything you choose or just for the moments when your gut pulls you that way?
  • Have you ever had to let go of helping someone in your life because they’re not ready to help themselves?
  • What was a story that freed you up the most?
  • What is something that shook you before your book came out?
  • What are you most excited about right now?
  • Who is the ultimate person you want to read your book?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Alex’s seven-year book journey
  • Using pain as a motivator
  • Evolving motivation
  • Alex’s insecurity while writing The Third Door
  • How Alex’s pain evolved into curiosity
  • How Alex’s Price Is Right winnings funded his book
  • Why being naïve can be an advantage
  • The difference between fear and courage
  • Why Alex’s family didn’t initially support his book
  • Welcoming fear to get more comfortable
  • How fear was a universal element in achieving a dream in all the people Alex interviewed
  • Sharing in order to connect with others
  • How to conquer internal and external obstacles
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

 

“Pain with awareness is our teacher.”

 

“You can give someone all the best tools and knowledge in the world and their life can still be stuck, but if you change what someone believes is possible, they’ll never be the same.”

 

“Courage is acknowledging fears, analyzing the consequences and then deciding you care so much about it you’re going to take one thoughtful step forward anyway.”

272: The SECRET To Reaching Your Next Level
19:29

This past weekend I spoke at the Thrive event in Las Vegas (which was amazing), and I also came to the realization that my life is one big classroom. You see, I got sick the morning of the day I was supposed to speak. I’m not sure if it was food poisoning or the flu, but needless to say I wasn’t going anywhere for a while. It was like life was flashing a big neon sign with a message that was impossible for me to ignore. In fact, there were multiple nudges, messages and signs that day, but I’ll leave those for another episode as I’m still marinating in a few of them. One thing I’ve come to realize though is that:

 

“Every single thing that happens can be a breakthrough lesson and everyone can be a teacher.”

 

Now this doesn’t mean that nothing bothers us, but it does mean that we get to choose how we view a particular situation and move through it. Yes, you may struggle and it may be annoying or painful, but the sooner we can accept it, the more quickly we’re able to advance to the next level.

 

“The sooner we accept the obstacle as a lesson or the person as a teacher, we get to move through it faster.”

 

As Tom Bilyeu shared with me just the other day, “Struggle is guaranteed, success is not.” In order to get to the next level, we have to experience it all. And if we’re going to struggle, we may as well get something useful out of it, yes?

 

Compare it to a rookie’s journey to becoming a pro. There’s always that point where the rookie is thrown in the game and the team may win or they might lose. The rookie will learn the do’s and don’ts – most likely the hard way. Whatever they experience though, it’s necessary because the coaches make the decision to move up that particular player if they don’t see them in action.

 

Once you realize that obstacles and people (yes, even those rude people in traffic) are here to teach us, you will experience a whole new level of freedom. It will be uncomfortable and you might shout expletives now and again, but practice and sharpening the skills of love, compassion, boundaries and saying no will help you step into that next level of your life.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Why life is our classroom
  • Why struggle is inevitable
  • Viewing obstacles as lessons and people as teachers

270: Take Your POWER Back NOW!
23:49

With a lot of speaking engagements going on for me right now and in the near future, I’ve had to really stop and observe my anxious tendencies and the thoughts that often go along with them. It’s amazing how powerful our thoughts and inner dialogue can be. Today’s episode is all about freeing yourself from the labels that hold you back and knowing that you’re the only one who has that power to do so.

 

How often have you heard, “I have such anxiety when it comes to speaking in front of people”? Hand raised over here because I’ve definitely said it to myself before. But here’s where we change it. We don’t “have” anxiety. We “do” anxiety. We don’t “have” no energy. We “do” no energy. And it’s in this doing that we have the choice as to what we do or don’t do. See where I’m going with this?

 

I’d like you to do a quick exercise to take back your power. First, write what you “have.”

 

            Example: I have anxiety.

 

Now cross that out and write DO instead.

 

            I have anxiety. I DO anxiety.

 

Now describe how you “do” anxiety right now? What actions are supporting this feeling? What thoughts?

           

            I’m drinking coffee. I’m checking messages right when I wake up. I’m eating crappy food and isolating myself. I keep telling myself how nervous I am and that            I’m going to forget what I’m saying on stage.

 

Take notice of the conversation in your mind and watch how you’re talking to yourself. If you’re anxious, reframe and tell yourself how excited you are and why. Replace your thoughts with better thoughts and take your control back!

 

No lie, it doesn’t always go fast. But keep trying on different feelings until it does feel good.

 

“Choose how you feel.”

 

Tell yourself, “I can undo any feeling I don’t want to be in.”

 

And remember, once you start putting out these better feelings, you’ll notice that you’re attracting more too.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Freeing yourself from labels that hold you back
  • Taking ownership of your thoughts
  • Why you don’t “have” anxiety, you “do” anxiety

268: Uncover the Beliefs Your Current Tribe Is Reinforcing
17:22

Just a head’s up that today’s topic may be a touch overwhelming for some, but I don’t want anyone to get too worried, because when it comes to shifting and changing a person’s beliefs – it’s actually never-ending.

 

I’ve discovered recently just how important it is to take inventory of one’s tribe, aka the people who we’re spending the most time with. Keep in mind that this can be actual people, television, podcasts etc. I like to also call them reinforcers.

 

I want you to do a quick exercise and write down the following:

 

  1. List five people who you’re around the most.
  2. What is the main belief, habit or limiting belief or thing that they are reinforcing in your life?

 

When completed, review and determine if these habits and beliefs are reflecting back at you. Are they holding you back? Don’t panic if it’s not what you thought. I’m certainly not here to tell you who to hang out with and I certainly won’t tell you to ditch friends who aren’t “positive” enough. But I am telling you that you may want to load the other portions of your “plate” with more positive or up-leveling people. Crowd out your plate in a positive direction.

 

Maybe that means joining a new group or mastermind? Maybe it’s adding more podcasts, books or self-development events to your life. Whatever it is, just make sure to, “set up a life and tribe that reflects where you’re going and not where you’re at.”

  • Taking a tribe inventory
  • Shifting and changing belief systems
  • Why we need more positive reinforcers in our lives

267: Ways to ATTRACT WEALTH Rather Than Chase It with Patrice C. Washington
57:33

Money doesn’t guarantee fulfillment and today’s guest, Patrice Washington, is hoping more women catch on. As an award-winning author, transformational speaker, hope-restoring coach, and media personality, she started her first 7-figure mortgage-brokering business with her husband before graduating college. Their business was wildly successful until the recession crashed and they lost everything.

Picking herself up after this experience, she realized that she had a lot of knowledge but needed to seek more wisdom. She dug deep and knew it was more important to chase her purpose – not money. She discovered that life is about so much more – relationships, your well-being and your faith to name a few. Recognizing the power of this discovery, she created the 6 Pillars of Redefining Wealth, and now teaches others how they can tie each pillar back to producing wealth – and stay true to who they’re called to be.

I had such a great time talking with Patrice – she is such a down-to-earth, purpose-driven woman who relies on faith and her own unique calling to help others find theirs as well. I hope this episode empowers you to break free from any limiting beliefs that you have about yourself and helps you step into your highest purpose and calling.

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

  • What were some things you took back from your recent trip to France?
  • Does the thought of working with your husband again scare you?
  • What is lighting you up right now in your life?
  • What is something you would say to someone who’s ignoring a redefining moment?
  • How do you trust? What do you rely on to push past fear?
  • What are the 6 Pillars of Redefining Wealth?
  • What’s something that helps build your faith foundation?
  • What mindset do you keep through the dark times?
  • What’s a message on your heart right now?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Patrice’s recent trip to France impacted her
  • How Patrice and her husband are merging their interests to work together
  • Being driven by purpose
  • The shift that happened in Patrice’s life after her and her husband lost their 7-figure business when the recession hit
  • The difference between knowledge and wisdom
  • Why Patrice initially started a blog
  • How Patrice broke out of the box she (and others) had put herself in
  • Why there’s more to money than budgets and credit reports
  • Patrice’s 6 Pillars of Redefining Wealth (Fit, People, Space, Faith, Work and Money)
  • Protecting the vessel needed to create the vision
  • Creating relationships that matter
  • The Redefining Wealth Podcast
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

 

“The purpose that we’re being called into is greater than any pain that will come with it.”

 

“Create a lane where you can be all you.”

 

“I’m committed to the vision but not attached to how I get there.”

 

“If it was done before, it can be done again.”

 

“Everything can go bad with money, but if your mind is in the right place, you can always rebuild.”

 

“You know who you used to be, so before you allow someone to take you back there, give yourself time.”

 

“You can decide to not decide anything until you’re ready to decide.”

 

“Choose peace powerfully.”

Patrice is committed to redefining the word “wealth,” using its original meaning, “well-being.” She encourages women to have “wealth” in all aspects of their lives by pursuing their purpose, being fulfilled, and earning more without ever chasing money. Through her teachings, Patrice empowers women to look at life through the lens of abundance and opportunity, instead of lack and scarcity.

266: Why I Believe You DON'T Have All You Need Inside You
18:26

“You have everything you need inside of you.”

 

You may have read or heard this quote from me before, but if I’m being honest, the first time I heard this quote I called BS on it. I mean sure, it’s an empowering concept, but if you don’t know how to look at it from all sides (which I didn’t when I first heard it), it’s disempowering.

 

But here’s where it does hold true. You do have everything you need right now to start asking questions and to be resourceful. How empowering is that?

 

“You have all you need to in order to create whatever you’re desiring in your life.”

 

For example, when I first started my podcast, I knew nothing…I mean nothing about starting a podcast. So I started researching (Google) and finding others who could help me get it off the ground. I was not meant to create all the things by myself. For this particular endeavor, I had the idea and it was up to me to move it forward. It was literally a matter of asking the right questions.

 

All that’s left to do is start! After all, “pure bliss is becoming the person that you knew you were meant to be.” But it’s up to you to create the experiences in order to bring that person into reality. 

 

Now to all my over-thinkers out there (you know who you are), you may be coming up with a list a mile long of all the reasons you just can’t do it. But here’s my advice: start now! If you don’t take action, you won’t fulfill your purpose. It sounds harsh, but it’s true.

 

Don’t worry if things don’t go as planned. Know that it’s all a part of the process and that the universe will provide a soft landing. And even if you feel that sometimes your actions are selfish, know that you’re making progress and it’s somehow affecting someone in a beautiful way.  

 

Are you with me? Let’s start taking action – big and small steps – now!

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Why everything you need isn’t inside of you
  • Being resourceful
  • Creating experiences to help you step into your highest purpose

265: Why Your Story Is The Most Powerful Thing You Can Share with Cayla Craft
01:01:54

Having grown up in a broken but happy family, today’s guest, Cayla Craft, knew she was meant to do big things and help people. However, she first had to change the lens she was viewing her life through. In order for her to create what she wanted out of life, she had to ditch the mentality of “I am nothing,” and instead share her story to help others.

 

Once Cayla realized that there was no need to compare her journey with someone else’s, she could stop trying to please everyone, find her purpose, dictate how she lived her life and make herself a priority. And that’s just what she did.

 

As a result, today Cayla is a self-made millionaire and now teaches other entrepreneurial women how to do the same. She gives women the tools and resources they need to have an abundant mindset and shamelessly pursue their ambitions while still enjoying life.

 

There were so many moments I related to throughout our conversation and I have a feeling many of you will as well. I would love to hear what those moments are! Happy listening!

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

  • Did you always know that you were going to do big things and help a lot of people?
  • What is something you would say to someone who is still in that push phase or exhausting themselves?
  • When did you know your story was the most powerful thing you could share?
  • What do you tell someone to get started on in order to feel fulfilled and successful?
  • Why is it so important to make sure you’re creating new relationships and leaving old ones behind?
  • Why do we feel like we need to please others and how do we break ourselves from that mindset?
  • If someone is on the verge of having a difficult conversation, what would you tell them?
  • Have you ever experienced “imposter syndrome,” and if so, how did you deal with it?
  • What are your fears right now and how do you handle them?
  • What do you think is the biggest difference between people who are creating the life they love and stepping into their authentic truth and those who aren’t?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Cayla’s upbringing in a broken, but happy home
  • Why Cayla felt like a warrior for so long
  • Removing the lens of “I am nothing.”
  • Why self-awareness is the first step of transformation
  • The importance of doing the internal work
  • Reframing your story and finding your purpose
  • Creating new relationships and leaving behind old relationships that aren’t serving you behind
  • Making yourself a priority
  • Allowing others to feel uncomfortable so they can grow
  • Why we can never take anything personally
  • How Cayla preps when she needs to have difficult/uncomfortable conversations
  • Different perceptions of reality
  • Putting your focus on serving others
  • How Cayla’s raising kids that live empowered and inspired lives
  • Mommy Millionaire Podcast
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

 

“You’ve already done enough; now it’s time for your message to be heard.”

 

“You have to change the story – you have to rewrite what you want out of your life.”

 

“Self-awareness is the first key to transformation.”

 

“Stop living your life for an audience that doesn’t exist.”

 

“Stop looking outward and start looking inward.”

 

“I don’t need to Google – the answers are already inside of me.”

264: Why Being Dissatisfied Can Be A Great Thing
15:31

I want to start off by saying a huge thank you to all who listen and follow this podcast. As we fly into 8 million downloads, I have to keep pinching myself to ensure it’s all real. I couldn’t do this without you all and I am so, so grateful that you choose to spend part of your day listening.

 

A couple months back, I heard the phrase “I am blissfully dissatisfied with my life,” from the amazing Ed Mylett. And I love the balance of the two words because it means being blissfully happy with where you’re at while being equally dissatisfied with wanting more or knowing you have more to give.

 

“In order to be a happy human, we have to make progress.”

 

Whether it’s in terms of your health, family, relationships or your business, progress keeps us alive! The other day the idea of being blissfully dissatisfied was brought back into my life when I received a message from a follower. Upon first glance this woman looked like someone I could be friends with – she was a yogi, into wellness etc. – but upon reading the first sentence (I’m going to have to unfollow you because you seem to have a ‘deep dissatisfaction’ with your life), I don’t think we’ll be friends anytime soon. I close the message before I could read the whole thing because honestly, I was breathing fire! Then I took a moment, went back, blocked her and deleted the message. Sure, I could have responded, but people with energy like that are not for me.

 

So anyway, this message got me thinking back to what Ed Mylett had said and I honestly thought… I am equal parts satisfied and dissatisfied – and I’m totally OK with that. You see, as humans, we’re not wired to be happy. We have a need to be better – for ourselves and others. But in order to find this balance, we can’t be focused on satisfaction in ALL areas at ALL times. We must give ourselves grace in the areas that aren’t the priority and pour ourselves into the other areas despite potential side effects.

 

So yes, I will never be satisfied, but I will ALWAYS be blissful. And I will always strive to show as much love, grace and compassion to all those who think I feel otherwise.  

 

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Why progressing is crucial for our happiness
  • How she dealt with an unkind message
  • Giving yourself grace

263: Further Your Business and Relationships through Collaboration, NOT Competition with Jaclyn Johnson
55:31

I’ve been stalking following today’s guest, Jaclyn Johnson’s @createcultivate IG page for quite some time now. In fact, before I knew her personally, her event photos helped inspire me to create my own stage for The Bliss Project. But here’s the thing, Jaclyn’s events are way more than a gorgeous stage – they’re all about collaboration and helping other women create and cultivate the career of their dreams.

 

Don’t be fooled though, Create & Cultivate conferences aren’t just for entrepreneurs – they’re for all women who are looking for a refresh of inspiration in all things business.

 

Jaclyn and I talk about her rough start as a naïve 23-year-old entrepreneur who didn’t know what she was doing, the lessons she learned from it and why it helped her become the wildly successful CEO Creative & Cultivate she is today. Jaclyn also shares why Creative & Cultivate is thriving and why she hopes to help others with her new book, WorkParty, by providing tips on how to run a business, how to start thinking like an entrepreneur and how to maintain friendships, relationships and partnerships along the way. Since this interview I’ve completed her book and it’s definitely an inspirational must-read!  

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

  • Where are you at right now and how did you get there?
  • What would you tell someone who’s looking for the next thing to get started and take the leap?
  • What’s a question you’ve never been asked that you think people should ask when they’re starting a business or in a business?
  • What does white space mean?
  • What is a lesson that’s been painful and awesome?
  • How did you learn not to take things personal?
  • What do you do for yourself in order to make decisions and implement the culture you want?
  • What is something you’re most excited about and something you’re working through right now?

  • Who is someone you look up to right now for inspiration?
  • What are your Creative & Cultivate events/conferences like?
  • How do you let go of people/relationships that aren’t serving you?
  • Why this book right now and who needs it?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Jaclyn’s entrepreneurial journey started and lead to founding Create & Cultivate
  • Why we tend to be more creative when we have nothing to lose
  • Runway and goal-setting
  • Jaclyn’s definition of “white space” in the business world
  • The importance of getting things in writing in terms of getting serious and legalities
  • Friendships and business
  • Approaching business from a human perspective by not escalating and remaining level-headed and fair
  • Why work is part of Jaclyn’s self-care
  • Keeping separation between business and those friends who are near and dear
  • Scaling and growing a business while maintaining authenticity of the brand
  • The most important messages of Jaclyn’s book, WorkParty
  • Going against the status quo of what business looks like for women
  • Handling hard decisions in the best way
  • Why it’s so much better to collaborate vs. compete with others
  • Why Jaclyn wrote WorkParty
  • And so much more…

Jaclyn Johnson is a powerhouse entrepreneur. By the time she was 28, she had sold her first business, (No Subject), invested in one of the country’s top female owned startups, Away, and launched her second multimillion dollar company, Create & Cultivate.

 

Johnson recognized a gap in resources for female millennial entrepreneurs and responded with solutions, Create & Cultivate and now, WorkParty. In the process, Jaclyn’s own philosophy, built on female empowerment, hustling-hard and innovation have propelled her voice to the forefront of the discussion on career, a new thought-leader for millennial women and Gen-Z-ers.

Known for her powerful messaging and often imitated never duplicated style of digital and experiential marketing, Johnson is reshaping attitudes on female entrepreneurialism, work culture and the gig economy for women all over the world.

In August, Jaclyn’s new book, WorkParty releases via Simon & Schuster, offering her rallying cry for women in the workplace.

262: Oprah, You, Me, Bahamas and Manifesting 101
23:35

Today’s episode is a super special quickie and it involves something I’ve been manifesting for years. While I was wrapping up my three-week European vacation I received notice that I was selected to be a speaker on one of the Oprah Magazine Cruises – yes, THE Oprah! My mind is still whirling from this news.

 

I firmly believe that this opportunity came up after I finally cleared enough stuff to make room for it while I allowed myself to recharge and get away on my trip. And honestly, as odd as it sounds, once I was able to actually “let go” of my dream to meet Oprah (there was literally a dream where it happened – listen to hear about it) and know that either way, I’m OK – it happened. It’s all about living into your gifts.

 

Here’s a little Manifestation 101 on how I was able to live into my Oprah manifestation:

  1. You have to put the work in, believe in a little bit of magic and have faith. Allow that dream to look different and probably the most important – be patient.
  2. Focus on why you’re awesome and what you love about yourself. Who or what brings out that part of you?
  3. Be the energy you want to attract. Raise your vibration to get there.
  4. Get clear and declare it. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ve likely heard my Oprah dream quite a few times. ;)
  5. Release it. You are significant and loved regardless of whether or not this dream happens.

 

I would love to see you on the Oprah Cruise (to the Bahamas) with me! Check out the link in the resources and let’s fill that ship up with the highest-vibing people ever! It will be like a boat version of Bliss Project! Be sure to message or tag me on Instagram if you’re in – I cannot wait!

261: Why It "Pays To Be Brave" with Angie Lee
56:48

You’re going to love today’s guest, Angie Lee, as she’s a wise old soul at the core but not even 30 years old! She and I go back 10 years to a fitness camp we attended together. Since that time she’s become this powerhouse business woman who loves sharing her light and knowledge with others.

 

Today, we’re dialing into the present and talking about Angie’s upcoming book, Raise Your Hand as well as her Pays to Be Brave event in October – and all the fears and doubts that come up as a result. She believes that being bold is key and that “no’s” are imperative to anyone’s journey.

 

I hope you enjoy a good mixture of silliness and seriousness because you’ll get a big dose of both in this episode! Don’t be surprised if you’re ready to write your own book or host an event after listening!

260: Are You Sacrificing Yourself or Your Dreams Just to Fit In?
12:34

It never gets old seeing and hearing what readers are resonating within A Tribe Called Bliss. I love hearing what people are taking away and what makes that light bulb turn on for them. Recently, I’ve seen a lot of people calling out the following quote:

 

“He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.” – Raymond Hull

 

We’ve all been guilty of this at one time or another, and I think it’s been such an a-ha moment for people in the book because it’s giving others permission to step even more into themselves and be who they truly are – regardless of what other people will think.

 

So what part of yourself have you been whittling away in order to make someone else happy? Are you hiding a part of yourself because you’re afraid to show that part? Or is it because you’re surrounding yourself with people who aren’t the right fit for where you’re at?

 

It’s time to get real with yourself – dig deep. What do YOU need right now? Look from all angles, and STOP turning the volume down on who you are. Is it easy? Um, not quite, but I will tell you this:

 

“The highest good doesn’t always feel good.”

 

This is where you must confront any resistance you have head on and grow from it. Find out who you truly are. If you’ve whittled yourself so far down that you don’t even know who you are, it’s time to get to work.

 

First, figure out what emotion is the most important for you to live in. Then, choose one thing a day that helps you live it out. It could be reading or listening to podcasts, but what I’m really looking for are tangible actions. DO something! And don’t worry if you try something and it’s not the right fit. Trust me, you’ll know immediately, just has you’ll instantly know if it’s the “right” thing.

 

So who’s with me? It’s time to put that inspiration into action.

 

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Importance of following your bliss, joy, pleasure and where you’re being guided
  • Constantly seeking resistance in order to grow
  • Taking inspired action

259: Choosing Different Paths for a Thriving Body and Life with Koya Webb
45:25

My guest today, yogi and wellness coach, Koya Webb, personifies the word love. We were fortunate enough to chat in person, but I know you’ll feel her warm energy through the recording as well. And with a platform that encourages people to “love yourself, love others, and love the planet,” it’s no wonder.

 

Raised in small-town Tennessee, Koya was counting on athletics to get her out into the world. Unfortunately, right at the time of a life-changing conference meet, she suffered a stress fracture in her back. Devastated, she heeded the advice of her counselor and took up yoga and breath work to help her rehab. Even though her first yoga class was anything but easy, Koya was in love at first breath. In fact, she found herself completely rehabbed in 6 months and went on to win a conference event the following year.

 

Also during that time, Koya learned to slow down and listen to her body. Today, she credits this practice along with yoga, meditation and maintaining a plant-based diet for the high-vibing life she lives every day.

 

Koya offers so much valuable insight into living a vegan lifestyle (or just dabbling in it), and if you get one thing out of our conversation it would be to stop and truly tune into what your body is saying. You never know what it will tell you if you pay attention.

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

  • What is most exciting for you in your world right now?
  • What is your upcoming book about?
  • What was your life’s big pivot point?
  • How old were you when you first started listening to your body?
  • What would you tell people if they’ve never let their feelings lead them? Where should people start?
  • Does being vegan ever bring up challenges for you?
  • Are there practical ways to start dabbling in a more plant-based diet?
  • What is the most impactful thing that’s shifted for you since becoming plant-based?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Koya’s yoga teacher training course
  • Koya’s upcoming book
  • Changing your frequency from fear to love
  • Why yoga and meditation help connect you to your soul
  • How a stress fracture in her back led Koya to discover yoga and breath work
  • The importance of listening to your body and slowing down when it feels called to
  • How Koya practices what she teaches in her teacher training
  • The benefits of plant-based diet
  • Why online-bought food carries a higher vibration
  • How Koya navigates eating when out vs. at home
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“Yoga is the perfect tool.”

 

“You can’t love others to the detriment of yourself.”

 

“You can thrive and have a lot of energy, gain weight or lose weight on a plant-based diet.”

 

“Wherever you are on your journey, you are loved.”

258: How to Give Yourself What You Need The Most
11:54

The other night I went to a Soul Cycle class despite the voice inside my head that told me I didn’t want to go and didn’t have the energy to move my legs that fast (can you relate?). But after coming off of my three-week vacation, I was struggling. My re-entry back into “reality” has been tough.

 

Thankfully my Soul Cycle instructor gave me the wake-up call (or question) that led to a shift.

 

“What is a gift you could give yourself right now that would make your day or life better?”

 

I actually surprised myself with the answer…an attitude adjustment. Whoa, seems a bit harsh, huh? But here’s the thing. Now is not the time to take it easy on myself. I’ve still got a lot of things I want to do. And one of those things, was getting back into the groove with my podcast interviews.

 

I had a ton of resistance around my scheduled interviews this week, but once I remembered how much I enjoy talking with such incredible humans, I changed my tune.

 

“Sitting in resistance is a choice.”

 

Sitting in resistance was not serving me. It was time to lean in and start asking myself questions instead. What would it look and feel like if I was back in the groove of things? What if I let go and enjoyed it? What would that look like?

 

“If it’s something you’re choosing to have on your plate because you want it there, you can let go of the resistance.”

 

I realize that letting go can be hard and it takes a lot of thought. Trust me, that has been me for the last week. But just start small by asking questions – don’t force it. You’ll find that once you start envisioning all the good things, your energy will increase, too. Resistance, while sometimes helpful, only sucks your energy away. Let’s do the opposite by ramping up your energy instead and watch as more shows up.

 

I hope this message prompts you to take a moment today to figure out what you need the most, move through resistance and lean in. 

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Discovering what you really need to give yourself
  • Why Lori gave herself an attitude adjustment
  • Letting go of resistance and leaning in

257: How to Make a Comeback with Tim Storey
58:51

Today’s guest, Tim Storey, is someone I’ve wanted to have on Earn Your Happy since before it was officially a thing. So you can imagine that I was practically levitating from excitement (and let’s be honest, I still am) to chat with him. If you’ve never heard of Tim, you’re missing out because he’s a master at moving people into action and helping people turn setbacks into comebacks. Seriously, when Tim speaks his energy comes out of his pores!

 

Realizing early on he wanted to help heal others, in our conversation we talk about where it all began (picture seven people in a two-bedroom house) and how he credits his upbringing to helping him think big in small places. We touch on spending time with people who get you (your tribe) and why we all need to start paying attention and be an observer to all the discoveries around us.

 

You may want to listen to this episode twice (I know I’ll be listening again) just to take in each and every one of his wisdom-filled words. I can’t wait to hear your takeaways!

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

  • How did you become a speaker?
  • How can we enjoy the discovery while in the recovery zone?
  • Do you still have slumps and dry spells?
  • What are some of the key things that help you speak with full expression, and how did you get to that place?
  • What made you hold onto what your 6th grade teacher told you and make it your north star? What made it stand out?
  • For people who feel like they need to change to be something or they don’t feel like they’re ready for the “thing,” what would you tell them?
  • Do we have to make an empowering reason as to why we’re in a “winter?”
  • How do you know the distinction of when to share certain things with others?
  • How does one not get intimidated by the thought of mastery, but instead be almost pulled by their message to mastery?
  • How do people know when to go to the next level of work?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • What moved Tim to become a speaker and help heal others
  • Why the recovery zone is the common denominator
  • Staying in the moment during your discovery
  • Going back to being curious and innocent again
  • Changing the channel of what you’re thinking and how Tim shifts his channel
  • Tuning into the right things at the right times
  • Being with people who get you (your tribe)
  • Why Tim still holds onto his 6th grade teacher’s standard
  • Breathing life into others through speaking
  • Why people oftentimes must go left before they go right
  • What Tim did when he was served papers while he was speaking at an event
  • Why your testimony is the most powerful thing you have
  • The Law of Harvest
  • Why we can’t look for results every day
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“Unlock your discovery just by paying attention and observing.”

 

“If you’re not careful, life will knock the curiosity out of you.”

 

“Feed your faith, starve your doubt.”

 

“What I say, I live.”

256: How to Change a Belief That's Holding You Back
19:49

I just wrapped up my three-week trip traveling through Europe and phew – it definitely rocked my world! Yes, the experiences were amazing, but as a person who loves her rituals and who has habits that are deeply engrained, it felt a bit daunting at first. If I would have taken this trip five years ago, I would have left 20 pounds heavier because I would have just given it the all-or-nothing approach. Anyone else?

 

The difference of taking this trip now? Even though my life was tipped upside down in terms of bedtime, food, drinks and activity, I made a conscious effort to figure it out. In order to do this though I had to give up the belief that it would be impossible for me to feel good and happy.

 

“In order to change a habit, you have to change a belief. And in order to change a belief, you have to change a habit.”

 

Spoiler Alert: I feel amazing! “Control freak” Lori went on a vacation of her own! And it’s all because I figured out how to let go and surrender.

 

Here are five things that help me change a limiting habit or belief”

 

  1. You have to believe that whatever you’re desiring is possible for you. For me, it meant applying an abundance mindset to everything. I don’t have to eat ALL this amazing food or have multiple drinks because I know there will be more tomorrow and I can have some then, too.
  2. Gather evidence of why it’s possible. Look at the people and culture around you. Why can’t this be possible for me?
  3. Gather evidence of how you’ve been lying to yourself about the other belief to keep yourself safe.
  4. Look at why you’re afraid to believe something is different. Surrendering can be scary, but sometimes certainty can be worse.

    “Surrender opens the door to something that changes your life.”

  5. Do that new thing/habit/belief for as long as you need to until something shifts. It won’t happen overnight, but don’t stop just because it’s uncomfortable – keep at it.

 

I challenged myself the entire three weeks I was gone, but as I stated above, I feel great – and I ate and drank what I wanted and walked a ton. Will I keep up with the late suppers, nights and overall structure? Maybe about 30% to allow myself a bit more freedom, but my new rule of thumb?

 

“If it feels good, explore it.”

 

I encourage you to do the same by challenging your beliefs and doing it until you feel a shift, too.

254: The Difference Between What Our MINDS SAY and WHO WE TRULY ARE
14:00

 

It comes as a shock to many that before I wrote my book (and sometimes during the process) I’d never seen myself as a writer. I had no previous background; I just knew I wanted to write a book. However, any time I had that thought, I quickly inserted a “but I’m not a writer.” Now that I’ve published my book, I realize that my internal dialogue was clearly trying to steer me wrong.

 

So today I want to talk about the difference between the things we say in our mind and what we really are. It’s time to call out those things we want to do, but never do because our minds offer up an alternate story as to why we can’t. Using writing as an example, “I want to write a book, but I’m not a good writer.” Guess what? Neither was I and that’s why you find really good editors, writing coaches and other skilled people to help you through it.

 

“Remove the ‘buts,’ and become the person you know you are.”

 

You are not meant to do everything on your own! No one does it on their own. I personally have a team who helps with all my day-to-day tasks (and so many other things). Focus on your strengths and let others help you by using theirs too.

 

Furthermore, it’s OK to be a beginner again. Just because you don’t know how to do something, doesn’t mean it wasn’t meant for you. It will be uncomfortable but If something resonates with you, it’s because it is you. And that my friend is what makes you pure magic.

 

I hope this message spurs you to go after your passions and step into who you truly are despite the doubts swimming in your head. The world is waiting for you!

 

Before I go…I’m so grateful for you all and have one small request. If you feel called, it would mean the world to me if you’ve read my book to leave a review and rating on Amazon. You are the reason my book is reaching so many women around the world and I want to keep this tribe momentum going. Thank you so, so much!

From living in a one-bedroom apartment with his family of five to dumpster diving, each family member contributed in some way so they could live a better life. But where many people would use the adversities he and his family faced as an excuse not to go after their dreams, Bedros made them his why and set out determined to help others.

 

Today as an author, speaker and business consultant, Bedros is able to share his unique wisdom with people through his business Fit Body Bootcamp, speaking engagements and his upcoming new book, Man Up. He emphasizes that we are all much stronger than we think and it’s up to us to get resourceful and “man up,” and become the person you’re meant to be.

“It’s time to human up.”

252: How To Make The Most of Your Daily Energy
12:55

 

I feel that energy is the most valuable commodity – and how awesome is it that it’s something we can help control? So with that in mind, what are you giving your energy to today?

 

Ever notice that when you’re feeling low energy or tired that the things that seem big, scary or stressful seem even bigger, scarier or more stressful? When this happens, we know we’re not supporting that habits that keep us fully energized.

 

While talking at the gym the other day with my friend, Mark Karpenko, he told me that we’re all only given 100 watts of energy a day. Wow. Only 100 watts and often they’re not being spent wisely.

 

Sometimes we’re not waking up at 100 watts for a number of reasons. Whether it’s because the kids were up late or a relationship is weighing heavily on our hearts, or perhaps we’re just taking too many things personally – our energy is being drained. The good news?

 

“We can always change something.”

 

Get more sleep. Move your body or meditate. Eat better foods. And sometimes the most difficult (but often most helpful), be mindful of who you’re spending your time with. Don’t give up any of that wattage to things that don’t support love and your true talents and gifts. Be quick to forgive and let the small stuff roll of your back.

 

What will you give a “watt” about today?

 

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • How lack of energy magnifies any worries or problems we have
  • Ways to increase your energy
  • Giving a “watt” about the things that serve you and our purpose

251: Walk in Like You Own the Place with Cara Alwill
53:41

I am so I love with today’s guest, Cara Alwill Leyba, author, entrepreneur and founder of The Champagne Diet, and I know you’ll love her too (if you don’t already) after listening to our conversation.

 

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Cara worked for several years in corporate at MTV, but felt stuck knowing she really wanted to be a writer. She founded her blog, The Champagne Diet, and eventually self-published her first book, Girl Code. Since then she’s published several other books and her newest book, Like She Owns the Place releases July 10 (see Resources to get your copy and buy one for a friend, too!).

 

Cara shares vulnerably and is super transparent about the unglamorous side of business. She does this in an effort to show other women what it really looks like when things fall apart and how we can shift our perspectives, find the good and remember who we were before things fell apart.

 

This is such an empowering, feel-good episode and I can’t wait for you to enjoy it…perhaps with a glass of champagne (not if you’re driving!). ;-)

250: How to Be Friends with Influential People
12:38

Today we’re talking about who you have to become in order to start creating, manifesting and maintaining relationships in your life. Not long ago, I had a desire to hang out with higher-level friends. Now, don’t get me wrong, the friends I had at the time were great friends, but I was looking for something a little deeper.

 

I wanted to have a true tribe of people who had a more expanded mindset, financial thermostat, bigger goals and no limits on their beliefs or possibilities. And it wasn’t just about fitting in because we already know how awesome we are.

 

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as who you become by achieving your goals.”  – Zig Ziglar

 

It’s about adding value and contributing to the relationship on equal levels. If you’re someone who has already up-leveled, you’re no stranger to people contacting you and wanting to “pick your brain” or have coffee and talk business. While it may be flattering, you know it’s not something you want to commit to until you see what they can bring to the table to. It’s not personal when you politely decline (or someone declines your invitation), It’s about finding those people who expand your mindset, don’t question what’s possible and cheer you on.

 

“Be someone who they want to connect with.”

 

One important distinction… don’t change who you are at your core to fit in with someone who isn’t a great match. Just be the most authentic version of yourself! At first, I honestly thought I had to be an expert on the science of self-development principles, but I found that it wasn’t true. Depending on the group or situation, I actually added value in a variety of ways, such as being goofy, holding space, listening or giving advice. So just do YOU! Be authentic, find out who you are and be a person who adds value.

 

I know it’s not always easy to put yourself out there to new groups of people. OK, it can be downright scary sometimes. But do it anyway, because the things that bring you the most joy are often hidden underneath fear and resistance.

  • Who you have to become in order to hang with higher-level friends
  • Bringing value to the table (50/50)
  • Stepping into your truth and authenticity

249: How to Achieve High Performance with Less Stress with Mastin Kipp
56:11

 

It’s always a good day when my friend, Mastin Kipp, is on the show because I always learn something – and our recent conversation was no different.

 

Today we’re talking about how trauma – of all kinds – can hinder the building of tribes (love that we both believe in the power of tribe) and how we can take the steps to build a life and business without anxiety. You know the saying, “your vibe attracts your tribe?” Well, Mastin and I discuss on how even your tone of voice, facial expressions and hand gestures can do the same.

 

Mastin is one of the most authentic, value-offering people I know because he loves his work and isn’t afraid to dive deep and get to the root causes that are often times emotional. I resonated with so many of things Mastin talked about and I can’t wait to hear what you think.

248: How Dreams Get Delivered To You
18:11

Today I’m in Phoenix for the last stop of my book tour, but I recently decided that I may attempt another round later this year because I’m having so much fun with them. Sure, we talk about some pretty serious stuff, but we get to laugh with each other while we do it – and that is SO fantastic! It’s so gratifying to see another dream of mine come true. And if you’ve been following me for a while, you know this dream didn’t happen overnight.

 

Speaking of which, while going through some of my social media posts the other day so I could get a feel what’s resonating most with people lately, I found a post about dreams that hit a major chord.

 

When you ask for something, when you really want something, you gotta know that it’s not getting delivered in its final form. It’s like going to IKEA, picking out your favorite kitchen and furniture to fill your house and saying, “Yeah, that’s pretty! I love it! I want it! I’ll take that!” Then going home to a pile of confusing parts you have to put together yourself only to realize you don’t own any tools and your dog ate the instructions. Yup, that’s how your dreams get delivered – they show up one day at your door as a pile of lessons that you do not yet have the skills or tools to navigate. That pile of lessons, tough relationships and lack of skills serve as your opportunity to figure out how to be resourceful and become the person who can handle building and maintaining the dream. Yup, I have a love-hate relationship with IKEA and building my dreams, but I sure enjoy who I’ve become as a result of figuring out the messes and overwhelm when I realize it’s all gonna be beautiful on the other side.”

 

Dreams don’t just magically appear – as much as we wish they did. It’s about getting resourceful and finding others who can help you toward them.

 

“The only thing you need to do is take the action.”

 

You don’t have to have all the answers right away. You don’t have to be “ready.” But when you’re shooting for your dreams you’re also going to be in a constant state of testing and figuring out what works…and what doesn’t. It’s not going to feel good all the time and you may feel a little crazy at times, but that’s not a bad thing. Experiencing the bad helps us appreciate the success that much more.

 

So support your dream. For me, I love my podcast. I love talking with other amazing humans and learning new things. However, I don’t love the scheduling, editing, posting, and that’s why I have an incredible team that helps me with it. So if you’re saying, “I love this, but not this,” find a way to change your perspective about your dream. How is this not-so-fun part helping you achieve your dream?

 

“Be willing to feel lost on a daily basis. Security is not real.”

 

You’re never going to feel ready, but keep reframing, changing your perspective and never give up. Me personally?

 

“I don’t stop until I create what I wish existed.”

 

Just go with it! Take action (big or small) and make your wildest dreams come true!

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • What dreams look like when they’re delivered
  • How to support your dreams (get resourceful)
  • Taking action before you’re ready

247: Turning Negativity and Pain into Productivity and Purpose with Andy Frisella
01:06:37

 

It is such a massive honor to have today’s guest, Andy Frisella, on the show today. He is such an inspiration to me and I encourage you to listen and hold onto each and every single raw and honest word he speaks.

As a successful entrepreneur in the sports supplementation industry as well as a wildly successful podcaster, Andy LOVES what he does every day because he’s changing people’s lives. But this wasn’t always the case. A once self-professed fat kid eating Dorito’s who never completed anything, Andy realized he needed to make a change ­– even if that meant getting uncomfortable to do it.

Andy shares his journey with us and opens up to tell us how being stabbed radically changed his perspective on the world and how it also accidentally got him into business. Now he’s able to use his business and platform to make an impact and help others.

While you won’t hear Andy mincing words over any naysayers, you will hear him telling it like it is. If you’re looking for permission to do the same and also cut out the negativity in your life, look no further – Andy is walking permission to be REAL.

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What do you tell people whose backs aren’t against the wall… How do they get there?
  • How does the Law of Attraction work for you?
  • What do you do when you feeling like you’re going downhill (fear, doubt etc.)?
  • Growing up, did you feel like there was more?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Andy’s journey from a fat kid eating Dorito’s and not finishing anything to the success he is today
  • The “zero option mentality”
  • Getting uncomfortable to continue growing and evolving
  • How Andy is driven by negativity/the dark side
  • Being resourceful with your energies and motivators
  • Transferring negativity and pain into productive things that help other people
  • How Andy came back after being stabbed in the face and how it helped him connect and boost his business
  • The Law of Attraction
  • Looking for miracles
  • Building a business around purpose vs. making money
  • The Powerless Method (ep. 107 of The MFCEO Podcast – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/win-the-day-with-andy-frisella-mfceo107/id1012570406?i=1000377906163&mt=2)
  • Eliminating the negative people who aren’t contributing positively in your life
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“Even though it feels good now, it’s not going to feel OK 10-15 years down the road.”

 

“Creating progress takes a conscious effort to be uncomfortable.”

 

“I store the negative stuff inside and turn it into productive action.”

 

“It’s not about having all the resources. It’s about being resourceful with what you have, and that includes your energies and motivations.”

 

“Almost everything can be turned into something good.”

 

“It’s not something we choose to happen, it’s something that’s happening to everybody – they’re just not realizing it.”

 

“If you want to be great at what you do, make a business built around a purpose vs. being built around making money.”

 

“Fill your boat with propellers – not anchors.”

246: HOW to NOT Take It Personal
17:24

 

My book tour is coming to a close with one event left in Phoenix, and I have to say that I’ve fallen in love with being in rooms surrounded by so many amazing people and learning from them as well. As you’ve heard in other episodes, I’ve found new takeaways from each stop – but so many reoccurring themes as well.

 

Another overarching topic is about taking things personally. Getting through this, of course, has a lot to do with mastering our mindset, but it helps to understand what it feels like before you get there.

 

Question: If you didn’t take things personally, what could you do in your life? I’ve asked this question at my book tour stops and the answers are endless, but the most common response? “I could be happy.” Whoa!

 

You see, when we worry about what other people think we’re putting ourselves in our own form of prison. Don’t stifle your truth just to please someone else. I highly encourage you to ruffle feathers, share your opinions and share who you authentically are at your core.

 

“If you’re not upsetting people, you’re not living in your truth – you’re living in fear.”

 

Be yourself. Stop people pleasing. Make some waves. I know this is a hard thing to do, but it feels SO good. Trust me, I’m a people pleaser through and through, but by sparing other people pain, you’re only adding more pain to your life.

 

“Freedom and truth are the opposite of suppression and resentment.”

 

Does this mean you’ll never take something personal again? Heck no. It is a constant practice of self-love and you will learn how to release it more quickly. It’s also one of our best teachers in life that helps us develop more compassion and understanding from where other people are coming from.

 

So the next time someone offers their opinion and you take it personally, make a conscious effort to release, forgive and move on…and live a happy life.

 

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Why we need to stop taking things personally
  • Living authentically and in your truth
  • Why it’s an ongoing self-love practice to not take things personally

244: How Perspective Changes Your Life
08:50

 

I’m still on my book tour, and it means the world to me to share the room with so many amazing women. And while it’s a massive dream come true, it’s also forced me to make some massive perspective shifts when it comes to traveling, speaking, signing books and taking pictures. I’ll be honest, it can be a lot for this introvert who is prone get to getting anxiety! But once I’m able to slow down and change my perspective on it all – there’s no way I wouldn’t do what I’m doing. It’s just all about changing the way we view things.

 

One question I pose to my book tour audiences is, “what’s stopping you from connecting in different relationships?”

 

“In order for things to change, we have to change how we’re viewing things.”

 

Whether it’s your body, career or relationships, it is imperative that we shift our perspectives before anything can happen. We need to shift into how we want to feel.

 

It’s amazing how this small little thing (OK, not always the easiest task), can give you tons of energy back. No matter what you’re feeling anxiety around, change the lens you’re viewing it through and see how you can make it easier. There could be a different (and better) way.

 

Do this, and you’ll be on the fast track to changing your life.

243: How to Use Crystals for Healing and Manifesting with Energy Muse (Heather Askinose and Timmi Jandro)
52:12

 

My interview with Heather Askisone and Timmi Jandro, the founders of Energy Muse, was a conversation that was meant to happen. In recent years, I’ve become super intrigued with the use of crystals and it was incredible to dive deeper, learn some new things and also receive validation on some crazy coincidences in my life that involved crystals.

 

Best friends since the 1st grade, Heather and Timmi weren’t always interested in crystals. In fact, both were in different careers (business and high-end real estate) up until they founded Energy Muse 17 hears ago. With their combined experience of healing and business, they are now taking the woo-woo out of crystals and empowering people to make change starting today.

 

I know there will be some skeptics out there, but I have a feeling they’ll feel differently after listening. It’s all about good energy! I highly recommend taking their crystal test on their site to see which stones you’re drawn to – they may just help you through your next challenge. (And if you feel called to do so, I would love it if you shared which ones you chose and what they mean!)

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • How did you both start out on this journey?
  • Who do you typically give the amethyst stone to?
  • When did you realize there was something there for you with crystals? What made you dive deeper?
  • Do you keep different crystals throughout your house or through different times?
  • What was the main reason you decided to write your book, Crystal Muse?
  • How does energy alignment with the moon relate to crystals?
  • Do you have any rituals in your book that help people feel grounded or rooted when they’re at a tipping point?
  • What is the most exciting thing that’s coming up for you with your book release?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Heather and Timmi first met and their backgrounds before founding Energy Muse
  • How energies/stones resonate with people differently
  • The innocence of picking a crystal for the first time
  • The shift that took place when Heather gave Timmi a prosperity necklace
  • How crystals can help us feel and serve as a reminder to slow down
  • Energy Muse’s internal challenge to pick one stone and work with it for 21 days
  • Their new book, Crystal Muse, and why it’s a book of secrets that offers rituals done in 11 minutes or less to render results
  • Emotional moon in Scorpio
  • Why humans are looking to reconnect with each other more than ever
  • What it means to “energetically cut the cord”
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“When you feel, you start healing.”

 

“The more I stopped and slowed down, the more my life moved forward.”

 

“There are so many juicy concepts and conversations that one stone can help you evolve into and unearth.”

 

“The beauty of finding out who you are and where you are at that time is powerful.”

 

“The more we plug into the light right now, the more we are going to be able to get out of the chaos and confusion.”

 

“We, the people, are the bridge between the worlds – the earth and the sky.”

 

“You’re going to feel the pain, but it doesn’t have to last forever.”

242: How To Take Back YOUR POWER
10:20

 

I’m in New York this week having just wrapped up my stop in Boston for the book tour and it was another magical night. It’s so great having conversations with other women – especially those who have or are reading the book and are looking to connect with other women, too! It’s also super interesting to see what common questions are popping up between book tour stops.

 

One common theme that’s coming up, both at the book events and online, is how people are afraid to take leaps and try new things – they feel stuck. Personally, I know I’m wasting time when I start asking myself a lot of questions and stop taking action. All of the what if’s, stalling and procrastination – anything to prevent me from doing anything that might bring me some sort of pain. Does that sound familiar to you at all?

 

“We get stuck focusing on the pain instead of the motivation.”

 

But here’s the thing (and I have to remind myself of this daily), we don’t come out of the womb knowing what to do. Take riding a bike… can you imagine if as a child, we just kept thinking about the pain of the fall, scraping our knees or bumping our heads? We would have never ditched those training wheels! Instead, we imagined how free it would feel to cruise around.

 

So, take back your power. Quit focusing on the fall. Focus on the freedom. And don’t look back.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Why people feel like they’re “stuck”
  • Taking back your power
  • Why we need stop focusing on the pain and focus on the good

241: The Balance Between Making Money and Following Your Passion with Luke Storey
55:12

 

I am utterly fascinated at the diverse background of today’s guest and fellow podcaster, Luke Storey. With a journey that began as a high school dropout, Luke has hit career stops along the way as a musician, fashion stylist and now health and wellness podcaster. I honestly wish we would have had more time to delve into each avenue of his journey, but we were able to touch on so many inspiring topics the led him through each one.

 

A self-professed work in progress, I love that Luke focuses on staying teachable. He’s not afraid to examine each aspect of his life to find out what’s in alignment and what isn’t in order to live in his highest purpose day in and day out. Luke has committed to maintaining a balance of talent and passion, but that often means keeping his ego in check.

 

Tune in to hear how Luke manages to keep just the right level of humility without sacrificing his gifts or self-worth – all while staying true to who he is. This was such an insightful episode – I cannot wait to hear what you took away from it, too!

Question Highlights:

  • What brought you to do what you’re doing now?
  • What did the journey feel like when you discovered that living in your potential soothes you?
  • What were some of the biggest things you pulled from each of your career stops?
  • What does it look like, on a daily basis, when you’re working through something while also being humble and still being fully you?
  • How can you practice being in a relationship when you’re not in a relationship?
  • What are you most excited about?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Luke’s diverse background in music, fashion, speaking, health and wellness and how it led him to the present moment
  • The balance of talent and passion
  • How Luke got his start in fashion styling
  • Living in different purposes throughout one’s life
  • The need for significance and one’s interpretation of humility
  • Integrating the ego with one’s endeavors and work
  • Not attaching worth to one’s gifts
  • The importance of staying teachable
  • The pursuit of pleasure
  • How Luke is getting clear on who he is and what he has to offer
  • Relationships – romantic and platonic
  • Gratitude work
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“Once you figure any area of your life out and get some help, the only key to true fulfillment is passing that on to other people and living a life of service.”

 

“It’s owning that I’ve worked my ass off and learned a lot, but there’s also plenty left to learn.”

 

“Don’t believe everything you think.”

 

“Build a relationship with whatever it is that makes your heart beat all day, every day.”

240: How to MASTER Your MINDSET and Find Happiness
12:25

 

You’ve likely heard it before, but I’ll say it again… This thing called life can be so, so challenging. With lots of new situations popping up for me and speaking to audiences that I normally wouldn’t talk to, I’ve determined that getting through it all has to do with mastering my mindset.

 

Because when you put yourself out there in a new and vulnerable way, you’re not going to be supported by everyone. You’re going to have those people who judge you or say unkind things to you because you’ve “changed” or perhaps it’s someone who wishes they were doing what you’re doing. Always remember that it’s not about you – it’s them.

 

“The more you shift into the person you know you were meant to be, the more you change.”

 

When we allow fear or the opinions of others to get into our head, we are stopping ourselves from living the life we were meant to live. It’s a choice to tune into the small minds or let them fall away. I’m not saying they won’t affect you at times, but you must always return to that place of love and happiness within yourself.

 

Decide what matters and whose opinions are valuable to you. Personally, when I am living in my authentic power and truth, nothing else matters besides what my Creator and my family think (in that order).

 

“We are radically responsible for our own energy.”

 

So, determine what brings you back to that place of love and happiness – in all you do. I find that I’m able to drown out of the noise by bringing in more good (creating, dancing, writing surfing etc.). What helps you?

 

Whatever it is, know that we need you to show up in whatever makes you unique. Don’t let anyone else try to tell you different. YOU get to live this life exactly the way your Creator intended and that is pure bliss.

  • Mastering your mindset
  • Determining what and whose opinions matter to you
  • Living the life you were created to live

239: How to Stop Blocking Yourself and Start Manifesting Your Dreams with Sarah Centrella
01:01:08

 

Have you ever had one of those conversations that happened right when you needed it? Well, let’s just say that my chat with today’s guest, Sarah Centrella, was divinely timed. I always say that my podcast was created so I could selfishly get advice for myself, and this episode delivered.

 

About 10 years ago, Sarah was a stay-at-home mom, married to her high school sweetheart with 3 kids. She thought she and her husband were building this picture-perfect life, but the market turned and she discovered her husband was cheating on her. It was in this moment, broke and divorced, that her life as she knew it changed.

 

As one could expect, Sarah was shell-shocked. But when the dust settled a bit, she came to the realization that she was in control and had the power to decide who she was going to be. An avid fan of Oprah (who isn’t?), she decided to try a vision board after seeing it on her show. Little did Sarah know that 1.5 years later, her vision board would come to life.

 

Realizing that it was no coincidence that her vision board and life matched, she created another and watched those things come to fruition as well. Seeing a trend, Sarah interviewed several people to hear their success stories and discovered that there were eight common steps – regardless of the highs and lows – between all of them.

 

Today, Sarah uses this 8-step plan to help everyone – whether it’s a live coaching appearance or in her book, Hustle Believe Receive – create and manifest the life of their dreams. She encourages action on a daily basis to keep moving that needle toward your end goal/vision.

 

I loved our talk so much as it’s a great reminder to myself that no one is perfect and we all question our path and struggle from time to time. If you’re frustrated with where you’re at with your dreams, be sure to listen to get an instant pick-me-up! Enjoy!    

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • Where did your story begin?
  • What did the journey look like following that sliver of hope?
  • How did you create your vision board, what were the tools around it and how did you use it?
  • What made your vision board life happen?
  • Do you do something daily to get into that mindset?
  • Do you find that some people are afraid to dream or think bigger when it comes to vision boards?
  • Can you share what the 8-Step manifestation process looks like?
  • Where does step 6 (Do it – Hustle) come from?
  • What is the “Live it” step about?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Where Sarah’s story started
  • What moment marked the end of her life as she knew it
  • When and how Sarah came to create her first vision board
  • How Sarah brought her vision board to life
  • Why we must focus on the life (not the things) we want
  • The importance of linking feelings to the images on your vision boards
  • Using Pinterest to find your vision board images
  • Getting present and resetting when necessary
  • Making your vision so clear that you never give up
  • The 8 steps to create and manifest your dreams
  • “Throwing spaghetti at the wall” to see what sticks/works
  • Sarah’s book Hustle Believe Receive
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“I had to decide who I was going to be.”

 

“It can get better; it’s in my control.”

 

“I have always focused on experiences, not things.”

 

“If you don’t have a clear vision of where you want to go and if you’re not excited, at the very first obstacle you’ll say, ‘peace!’”

 

“The hustle is what you do on a daily basis.”

 

“Stop blocking and manifest.”

 

“There will always be a next level in your journey.”

 

“If you stop bitching, your life will change.”

238: Why You Have to Give Yourself Permission
12:19

I cannot tell you how surreal and exciting it all still feels to see so many of you building your tribes and sharing your takeaways, stories and photos with me about A Tribe Called Bliss (ATCB). I think I have a bruise from regularly pinching myself to confirm that this is indeed still real life. ;)

 

One common theme I’m seeing so far among my ATCB readers is how it’s giving you permission in all areas of your lives. Permission to do the things you want to do. Permission to be fully you. Permission to forgive yourself. Permission to have the conversations you need to have. Most importantly, it’s giving you permission to release the old stories about yourself that simply aren’t true.

 

Witnessing this has also spurred me to find areas where I can give myself a bit more permission in my own life. Because lately, I’ve had to accept that I’m just not going to be on top of everything and things are going to slip through the cracks. Book tours are no joke. It takes a whole other level of energy and time management… and saying no. And in order to do this, I’ve had to give myself a whole lot of self-love and grace.

 

“We’ll never get to where we want to go without massive grace and love.”

 

It’s times like this when we need to ensure we’re creating fierce boundaries and focus on saying no. Saying no can be so hard, but it is imperative for self-preservation during our busy seasons. Otherwise, our “good” may never turn into our “great.”

 

“Give yourself space for the true, authentic gifts to come through.”

 

Thank you all again so much for your support of me and my book. I know this is a recurring ask, but if you love the message of this episode or of ATCB, please share with a friend or leave a review so we can reach our goal of 1 million tribes!

236: This Is STOPPING YOU From Having the Friends and Relationships You Want
09:31

I am still feeling the energy of my first book tour stop last night at Wanderlust in West Hollywood. I can’t even begin to describe the energy that filled that room. And if you were there last night, thank you so much for being there and for supporting me and my book. The event was proof that this book really is creating a new way to connect, support and see each other and ourselves in a whole new light.

 

Can I tell you a crazy story about this particular venue? Four years ago, before this book was even a glimmer in my eye, I was there for Gabrielle Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie book launch. I had a lot of fear going into this event, and felt as though I wasn’t “good enough” to hang around this group of people – but I remember also being super excited and happy to be there. Long story short, it was amazing and I found myself sitting on the floor and dreaming of the day I held my own book launch event there. Let’s just say it’s quite clear that manifestation works!

 

This book tour stop (and I anticipate all the others will feel the same way) reaffirmed that all women are looking for deeper connections with female friends. People are done with the games of jealousy, comparison and fear, and are ready to create authentic connections. Everyone is eager to take their relationships from superficial to deep in order to create the safety net we all so desperately need.

 

I hope I get to see you at one of my upcoming stops for even more magical connections! And regardless if you’re able to attend, if you love my book or this podcast and feel called to do so, I would be so grateful if you shared my book with other women. My goal is still a million tribes and I can’t do it without you!

235: How to Replace Your Habits to Connect with Your Higher Purpose with Tara Mackey
56:27

I am in awe when it comes to the resilience of the human spirit and body, and today’s guest, Tara Mackey, just reaffirms my belief. With a tumultuous childhood that lead to a drug prescription at the young age of 13 subsequent prescriptions thereafter, it’s not surprising that Tara once came close to ending her own life. However, seven years ago, she finally realized that the help she sought didn’t come in an orange bottle or from the people who she’d allowed into her life. She knew the drugs (and diagnoses) were holding her back and as a result, she quit all 14 drugs cold-turkey (she doesn’t advise this method) and hasn’t looked back since.

 

Tara now takes pride in educating others to get off drugs and even more in helping people recognize what’s holding them back and then guiding them to create new habits that propel them forward. I resonate so deeply with Tara’s message as she also truly believes that we all are put on this planet with a purpose. And once we’re able to pinpoint the habits that are holding us back we can then create replacement habits and finally tap into our own intuition and purpose. Tara’s new book, “WILD Habits,” even walks you through the steps to do just that.

 

I think everyone will relate on some level to this episode and I can’t wait to hear all of the takeaways from this episode and her soon-to-be-released book.

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What do you do now and how did you get started on that path?
  • At what point did your intuition start talking to you and tell you to do something different?
  • What were some of the most influential experiences in your life that got you to those moments?
  • Can you explain what you mean when you say “numb?”
  • What do you share with people around what it really looks like when you step into the journey of your purpose?
  • Growing up, were there influences in your life that sparked a feeling of purpose and reminded you of who you were?
  • What were some of your labels and how did you get over them?
  • Do you have any labels now that have come with success that hold you up to some expectation?
  • How do we change out our habits and what does that look like?
  • How do we begin to make the space to follow the WILD Method steps?
  • What was your focus for energy in your book?
  • Do you believe everyone on the planet has a purpose?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Tara got off drugs and now helps educate people to do the same
  • How Tara helps people recognize what’s holding them back and then create new habits that propel them forward
  • Why harmful habits are all distractions from your true purpose
  • The importance of recognizing what you’re using to numb out
  • Labels
  • How drugs impact your labels and your behavior
  • Why it’s OK to change and grow all the time
  • Tara’s WILD Method
  • Listening to your intuition
  • The mind/body connection
  • The importance of movement
  • What toxicity in all forms looks like
  • Why it’s important to step away from judgment and criticism
  • How social media distracts us from our true purpose
  • Figuring out what to put your energy toward
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“I wanted help but help hadn’t come in the form of orange bottles or the people that I had let in.”

 

“We numb because we’re afraid of living up to our full potential.”

 

“Focus on adding up the moments that bring us joy because that brings us closer to who we truly are.”

 

“People will know you as whatever you do in that moment.”

 

“It’s not weird that you’re changing and growing all the time.”

 

“If you’re not moving your body other things get stagnant.”

 

“Become more conscious of why you’re doing what you’re doing.”

234: How To Look Forward To Every Single Day
07:37

 

The day is finally here! My book is officially out as of yesterday and honestly, I just don’t have the words to describe all the emotions I’m going through. This is definitely the best I’ve ever felt, but there certainly were days where things definitely felt challenging. But let me tell you, everything I’ve went through to get to this point was worth it!

 

So today, I have a simple message and it’s that we can’t fully experience the good of anything without enduring the challenging or dark moments. This is why when we reach where we want to go – wherever that is – that we really take time to feel GOOD and celebrate it!

 

When we know there’s always going to be a balance of dark and light or good and bad, we can begin to look forward to each and every day. Stop resisting or avoiding the things that make you heart sing and just go for it – regardless of the outcome. This is how our soul wants us to show up in the world (and everyone else wants to see it, too).

 

“Your joy elevates the world.”

 

So take a minute and really reflect, what are you holding onto that’s blocking the things you desire? Now, take a moment and figure out one small step that will help you toward it. Better yet, tell a friend or your tribe of women who support you.

 

Speaking of tribe… have you gotten my book yet? If you have, I would love if you shared with me what resonated with you (so far). Also, in order to reach my goal of ONE MILLION tribes, if you feel called to do so, it would help so much if you could rate and review the book online so more women find it and create their own tribes as well. And if you haven’t gotten the book, no worries, you can still get a copy at a bookstore near you or by visiting one of the links in the Resources section.

Today is an extra special interview with my husband, Chris, as he’s interviewing me on MY book, A Tribe Called Bliss. And it releases officially tomorrow, May 8! Gah! I am so excited!

232: How to Make a SOUL-GUIDED DECISION
14:06

Wow, we are less than a week away from the release of my book and I am so freaking excited – I can’t take it! And I cannot thank all of you – my supportive tribe – enough for your support so far. So many of my sisters have gone above and beyond to support me and my book, and in return, I’m trying to do the exact same for them by sharing their passions – books, podcasts etc. I’m a firm believer in bringing awareness to ALL women because that’s exactly what my book is about. Imagine what this world would look like with countless women supporting each other. Hello, energetic boomerang!

 

Today I’m sharing yet another excerpt from my book and this section, called Soul Talk, is all about really listening to what our soul wants and helping us step into our highest purpose.

 

“I want to clarify right now that even when you are listening to your soul it won’t always feel good at first. The difference is, when it’s a soul-guided decision, it will feel aligned and ultimately guide you to your bliss.”

 

Because this isn’t always the easiest task, my book walks you through how to tune in and really listen to your soul. It will help you move through what you’re going through – no matter what it is – and help you step into who you truly are.

 

I hope you’ve been enjoying the sneak peeks of the book and cannot wait for you to have it in your hands. I seriously have the best audience and your support means the world to me. If you feel called to help me get my book’s message out even more, please share this podcast with others. Much love to you all!

231: How Healing Your Relationship with FOOD Can Help You LIVE A FULFILLED LIFE with Mel Wells
54:33

 

Take a peek at Mel Wells’ Instagram feed and you’ll see instantly why I love talking with her and following her amazing journey of self-love. As an actress at 18 on a UK soap opera, Mel was exposed early on to the pressures of the performing arts world and keeping a “thin” figure. This pressure eventually led to eating disorder behavior and she remained in that self-described black hole for seven years.

 

Shortly after that time, she left that world, rediscovered her self-worth and rewrote her mindset. She now helps other women get out of the diet culture and change their relationship with food and their bodies. Because as Mel describes, by healing our relationships with food we can also change our relationships with our souls.

 

As a person who’s struggled with my relationship with food and my body, I related on all fronts of Mel’s messages. There really is a parallel between healing that relationship and using that same knowledge in all areas of your life. It ultimately comes down to loving yourself and giving yourself freedom. This was such a heartfelt conversation and I can’t wait to hear what you resonated with the most.

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What got you started on your path?
  • What was it that finally broke the cycle for you?
  • What do you tell someone who feels stuck?
  • How do you calm those fight or flight thoughts?
  • When you get psychological cravings what can you do?
  • What does it actually look like when you support other women?
  • What does being authentic mean for you in your life?
  • What are some tools you’re relying on to get you through your recent move?
  • What journey do you want to take women on at your Self Love Summit?
  • Did you have any limiting beliefs around creating relationships with women?
  • Tell me about your new book, Hungry for More.

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Mel healed her relationship with food and her body (and soul)
  • Connecting to your bigger vision
  • Choosing movement that feels good and isn’t a punishment
  • Trusting your body and that it wants you to live a healthy life
  • What to do when you get psychological cravings – that aren’t hunger related
  • Pursuing a fulfilled life
  • Being in integrity with your values
  • Letting go of old beliefs and obtaining new ones
  • The inevitability of change and growth
  • Mel’s TedXTalk and how she reframed her disappointment when they couldn’t publish it online due to audio difficulties
  • The importance of sharing the things that go wrong
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“When you’re able to trust your body’s natural intuition it helps you tune in with your soul’s intuition.”

 

“If we want to feel free, then freedom is what we have to choose.”

 

“Choosing more control won’t get you more freedom.”

 

“The more I love myself, the more I’m able to lift other women up and genuinely mean it from the heart.”

 

“Be willing to take the masks off and just be completely comfortable with who you are and where you’re at.”

230: Have You Ever Thought “There’s Got To Be MORE?”
11:30

 

As I said before, I’m sharing excerpts from A Tribe Called Bliss up until the release of it and today I’m reading a section called, “There’s Got to Be More.” And it’s all about confronting the thing(s) that are in the way of living in your purpose. It was a perfect part to call out as I practiced exactly what I talked about, and I experienced a new level of clarity as a result.

 

“The things we need to confront will not stop eating at us until we confront them or live in our purpose.”

 

From the start of publishing my book, I knew I had a responsibility to share/address some things with my family before it came out in regard to my feelings. So I set an intention to have a conversation with my mom and come from the most loving, compassionate place and do my best not to hurt her or any other family member in the process.

 

Great news – the call was a success and we were able to clear the energy and open up opportunities for something deeper. Why do I share this? Because I’m on a path to share what’s helping me in the moment – and today was one of those moments. It’s not always easy, but that’s what you get from my quickies – real, raw and vulnerable. All in the hopes that it helps you and helps you step into your purpose.

 

Cannot wait to see you on the book tour or in our book club!

229: How to MAKE A LIVING Doing What You LOVE with Cathy Heller
01:00:31

 

A few months ago, I had the honor of being a guest on Cathy Heller’s podcast, Don’t Keep Your Day Job, and I am thrilled that I get to have her on mine. Not only could I talk to her for hours and hours, but she has an incredible story that I know so many of you will resonate with. 

From early on, Cathy knew she was meant for more and sought to find her purpose in the world (she admits there were multiple attempts). She changed her major to World Religions to truly find out if there was “more,” and ended up taking a life-changing three-year trip to Jerusalem. After returning, Cathy moved to L.A. to see if she could make a career out of her love for singing and music. It took a lot of work, but she eventually landed a record deal. Unfortunately, her record label dropped her before it even had a chance to release. Feeling defeated at first, she bailed on the music and landed herself other “practical” jobs ranging from real estate and casting to floral and interior design. None of these fulfilled her though and she set out determined to find other ways to make money singing and songwriting – and help others at the same time.

 

Fast-forward to today and you’ve likely heard Cathy’s songs on your favorite TV shows, ads and more. She cracked the code to making money while fulfilling her purpose and now helps others do the same. In the past year, Cathy has taken it to another level as well by creating her podcast, which takes her knowledge and easily parallels it to anyone else’s passion project.

 

Cathy keeps it real and is the first to say that no one wants to see perfect – they want authenticity. Once you listen, I know you’ll agree. Tune in to hear all the goodness Cathy shares with us. I know that you’ll wrap up your listening session feeling just a little lighter and like you’re one small step closer to stepping into your purpose.

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • Can you tell us a bit about your background and your journey that led you to where you are now?
  • What pulled you to keep going through the various stage of your career/life?
  • How do we get people involved and excited?
  • Outreach leads to some of the same questions when it comes to content too, right?
  • What do you say to someone who struggles with perfection?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Cathy’s life and career journey that led her to where she is today
  • The many attempts made by Cathy to find her purpose – record deals, real estate, interior design etc.
  • The online course Cathy created to teach others how to license their songs to TV and film
  • How Cathy transitioned her knowledge to the podcast platform
  • The difference between a hobby and business
  • Finding your audience and who you’re creating things for
  • How you can make a living by doing four specific things
  • Why outreach and the value you can add is important
  • Creating content
  • Authenticity
  • Why we must be willing to be uncomfortable
  • Consistency and showing up
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“The mind likes to suffer, but I don’t need to.”

 

“The opposite of depression is purpose.”

 

“Success without meaning or fulfillment is an ultimate failing.”

 

“What makes any business works is radical empathy.”

 

“Vulnerability is the most powerful tool anyone has.”

 

“Wherever you are, there’s something you have that you can help somebody with.”

 

“We are all in beta – no one has it together.”

 

“Be willing to be a mess and do it anyway.”

Each week, Cathy encourages thousands and thousands of listeners to find more purpose in their life and get paid to do what they love full time. She started out as a singer/songwriter and found success licensing her music to TV, film and ads.

She started teaching online courses to artists which were quite successful and she’s been asked to speak at Podcast Movement, Social Media Worldwide, UCLA, Berklee School of Music, The Grammy Museum and the Billboard Film/TV Conference.

228 How To Avoid My Failure
13:05

My husband, Chris, and I were talking the other day and we thought it would be fun to share a short excerpt of A Tribe Called Bliss in the weeks leading up to the release date. So today I’m going to share a part from the beginning of the book, called “Tribal Fail,” which talks about what it looked like when I started to build my tribe.

 

You’ll discover that finding your tribe at first is awkward as hell, but it’s invaluable once you’re able to break through the surface with other women and form deeper connections. Because here’s the thing… we ALL need a tribe. Seriously, it’s proven (more details on that in the book) that the most successful, healthy and happy people have a group of people who always support them and have their back. And this is exactly why I wrote A Tribe Called Bliss and encourage you to build your tribe and work through the book together.

 

Again, it’s not always a straight road to find these people, and if you’re not quite ready to dive in with others, I encourage you to read the book through alone first. It will definitely get you into the right frame of mind to start your tribe when you’re ready.

 

This is just another reason why I’m so excited about my upcoming book tour. I cannot wait to connect people to their tribes! You never know who you’ll meet and form a lifelong relationship with.

 

Thank you so much again for helping me get this book and my message out into the world. Hope to see you at a book tour stop near you!

227: Make an Impact by FOLLOWING YOUR PASSION with Val Chmerkovskiy
53:07

As some of you know, my husband and I are huge fans of ballroom dancing, so it’s only natural that we’re huge fans of Dancing with the Stars’ Val Chmerkovskiy. After spending time with him earlier this year in Guatemala with Pencils of Promise, I just knew I needed to have him on the show to share more about his story and why making an impact is so important.

 

Born in Ukraine, at age 8, he and his family immigrated to Brooklyn, NY. As you can imagine it was a challenging transition but his parents inspired him to meet challenges by never backing away from theirs. To help occupy him and his brother’s time, they were enrolled in both violin and later on ballroom dancing. This soon became a passion for the whole family. In addition to Val and his brother Maks’ successful dance careers, they have since opened 14 other dance studios.

 

I cannot wait for you to hear Val’s inspiring story. Not only is he so passionate about his own life and what he does, he also hopes to inspire others to do the same. Tune in to hear how’s he connecting with others to do just that and how he’s making an impact in the world today. 

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What did your life look like growing up and where did your passion for what you do now come from?
  • What is most exciting in your life right now?
  • Was not giving up or quitting a mindset that you were taught growing up?
  • What do you think it takes to be a good leader/mentor?
  • What have you learned from being on your 50-city tour?
  • Do you still get nervous before you perform?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Why Val is so inspired by his parents
  • How Val and his brother got into dance (and violin)
  • Val’s (and his parents’) entrepreneurial spirit
  • Why it’s essential to have pride without the ego
  • Why mentorship is important to Val
  • Forming connections and making an impact with others
  • Val’s 50-city tour
  • Why Val loves seeing others who are passionate about what they do
  • And much more…

 

Quotes

  • How can I possibly dwell in my own success without having the energy of wanting to pass it forward and reciprocate?”

 

  • “A blessing isn’t realized until it’s passed forward.”

 

  • “I feel most fulfilled when I have a purpose.”

 

  • “Trust your track record.”

 

  • “Be nervous because you care, but don’t sell yourself short.”

--

 

Valentin “Val” Chmerkovskiy was born in Odessa, Ukraine to an engineer mother and marine merchant father. At 8 years old, Val’s family immigrated to Brooklyn, NY as refugees seeking asylum from the corrupt ex-communist nation. It was in a small Eastern European community in South Brooklyn where Val first picked up ballroom dancing as an after school activity that his parents hoped would keep him out of trouble. Soon after, Val found another passion in playing the violin, further easing the nerves of his parents as the arts kept their curious son off the South Brooklyn streets.

Although he resisted the temptation of Hollywood for a few years, in 2011 Val eventually joined his brother Maks as a member of the cast of professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars for its 13th installment. The 14-time US National Champion and two-time World Dance Champion quickly rose to stardom, becoming a fan-favorite for his impeccable performances and unique demeanor. Val won his first Dancing with the Stars Mirrorball Trophy with partner Rumer Willis during the ten-year anniversary season of the show. He later took home his second title in 2016 while partnered with Olympic Gold Medalist Laurie Hernandez. Most recently, Val was partnered with Paralympic swimmer Victoria Arlen, making it all the way to the semi-finals for which he choreographed a dance that brought a wheelchair into the world famous DWTS Ballroom for the first time.

Val is the first and only American to ever win the IDSF Junior and Youth World Championship, along with the prestigious British “Blackpool” Open, the German Open and the Asian Championships in Shenzhen, China. After overseeing the biggest youth ballroom dance program in the US, the Rising Stars Dance Academy, Val co-founded Dance With Me, one of the nation’s leading social dance studios, where he also lends his expertise as Art Director. Longing to continue his work with kids, Val implemented the Dance With Me Juniors program with the mission of keeping kids active, healthy, and creative.

Val supports numerous educational organizations and children’s charities, including the Children’s Hospital of LA and Pencils of Promise, for which he helped build two schools in Ghana using the funds he raised for the organization. He also spent the last two years mentoring kids at the KIPP Scholar Academy in South Los Angeles and brought his most improved mentees along to live tapings of Dancing with the Stars to inspire them to continue working hard.

As a classically trained violinist, Val has performed at Carnegie Hall and at Lincoln Center as a concertmaster for the ISO Youth Orchestra. He is fluent in English and Russian.

Val recently finished writing his first memoir titled “I’ll Never Change my Name,” set to be released in March 2018.

226: Make RESETTING Your ENERGY a Priority
12:12

 

I’ll be honest…With my book releasing in a matter of weeks, it’s been really easy to become overwhelmed with all the tactical stuff and let my thoughts be led by fear. As a result, I’ve been literally praying for a reset. And, today wouldn’t you know, my prayers were answered.

 

I’ve had back-to-back podcasts scheduled this week and I was resisting my interview with Sarah Centrella… not because I didn’t want to talk with her, but because I had so many others things going on. I pushed through this resistance though and wow, am I glad I did. It was smack-dab in the middle of our conversation when I realized that this was the exact message and conversation about manifestation that I needed to help me reset and connect back to my why. It is always a mixture of work + magic, miracles, fear, leaning in etc.

 

So now I’m back on my path and fully committed to blazing trails for all those right now who need the support of like-minded women with the help of my book, A Tribe Called Bliss. We need to remember to always circle back to make sure we’re connected to our why, and if we’re not we must use the tools that will get us there.

 

“Support your soul and that will support everything in your life.”

 

Remember, you are not in this alone and when you’re struggling don’t forget to use your tools or reach out to someone who you know will help you reset your energy back into strength and love.

  • Women supporting women

225: The Art of Imperfections with Candice Kumai
43:39

I’m so happy to have the amazing Candice Kumai on the show today! A former model turned culinary chef and celebrity, she has now tapped back into who she truly feels called to be and that’s as a writer. Today, we’re talking about her new book, Kintsugi Wellness, and her journey and Japanese heritage that called her to write it.

 

Kintsugi is the beautiful Japanese practice of taking a broken item and sealing or mending the cracks with golden repair. Candice uses this as an analogy in everyone’s life as she feels that our struggles or challenges are what make us more beautiful. We are all imperfect and she whole-heartedly hopes we all can see the goodness in our flaws and celebrate them in ourselves – and in others.

 

There are so many fascinating components to both Candice and her new book – particularly the deep dive into her heritage’s practices and philosophies – and I can’t wait to read it in its entirety. Be sure to pick up your copy, too and let me know what you think!

--    

Question Highlights:

  • Can you tell me what Kintsugi means, where it came from and where it came up throughout your journey?
  • Do you think it was important for you to go through your rough times?
  • What means the most in the world to you right now?
  • What are some of the most exciting things you’ve learned in your research?
  • What do you think were the core Japanese practices that shaped you?
  • What’s something wise you’ve heard lately?
  • What is resonating for people in your book?
  • How do you incorporate mindfulness into the food you make?
  • What are you most excited about right now?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • What Kintsugi means and how Candice came to write her new book, Kintsugi Wellness
  • The importance of connection and sharing our stories and pasts
  • What Candice’s Japanese heritage means to her
  • Wabi Sabi and what it means
  • Letting go of expectations
  • Accepting your imperfections and seeing the beauty in them
  • Being unapologetically who you are
  • Resilience
  • Learning to let go
  • And much more…

224: Why Contradicting Yourself Is Good For Your Growth
11:27

 

Today I’m talking about being a living, breathing, walking paradox. As we all grow and evolve, there’s likely been at least a handful of times where you’ve felt this way. You’ve thought you were on the right path, but suddenly something just doesn’t feel right to you. It’s like your favorite jacket. You wear it all the time, but suddenly you just don’t like it anymore. You need a change so you try a new jacket on for size.

 

“If you’re growing and evolving, change is a part of you.”

 

When resistance like this rears up, you have a choice – either keep resisting and take zero action for it, or lean in to discover what part of your authentic truth comes out. It is so freeing!

 

During this episode, I read a short excerpt from A Tribe Called Bliss, about my own paradoxical truths that I’ve discovered and allowed to free me. We are all multi-faceted people. We don’t need to be ONE thing. One of my paradox examples is being humble yet powerful and confident.

 

It feels super awkward at first and trust me, it took (and still takes) a lot of work to let these contradictions show though. But you’re only stifling your true authentic self. Share your opinions and in turn share your value with others.

 

What’s a paradox in your life that you can step into, own and celebrate? Even the smallest things count as big ones.

 

“Contradict your way to clarity.”

 

You will feel the most you you’ve ever felt and invite more amazing people into your life who are doing the same.

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

  • Why you should lean into resistance
  • Being a walking paradox
  • Lori’s paradoxical truths that have personally freed her

223: How Being YOU Attracts ABUNDANCE with Chris Lee
55:09

I’m so thankful that I stumbled across life coach, Chris Lee, on Lewis Howes’ podcast awhile back and that I since have had the honor of talking to him in person and now on Earn Your Happy! With over 27 years of experience in the arena of mindfulness and emotional intelligence, I had a feeling our conversation would be epic – and I know you won’t be disappointed.

 

With a childhood spent in Puerto Rico as a Jewish American, Chris’ life was not picture perfect. He was bullied and made fun of for his religion but his strong mother helped him to realize that he was able to look beyond the current situation and see how he could support his own life and make the situation better. He thought that if he could make the best out of this situation, that he could also help teach other people to do the same.

 

What I love about Chris’ work is that he only teaches the tools that he has experience with (you can find those 10 principles in his book noted in Resources). Furthermore, he is admittedly still a work in progress and still uses these tools to keep him living his best, most fulfilling and authentic life. I know you’re going to identify so much with Chris and the stories he’s shared. And it’s my hope that it will help you step into your own super-star authentic self as well.

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • Would you share what you’re doing now and what was the turning point that got you started?
  • What were some of the things that brought you to what you’re doing now?
  • What was the first level for you of opening up?
  • What was the first thing you needed to move through and how did you see how the tools expanded into other areas?
  • How do you move through issues of self-worth?
  • How did you find your authentic sentence/self and how does someone else find theirs?
  • Where do you borrow faith from, where does it come from and how do you get enough faith and courage to take the first big step and leap?
  • How do you stay connected to your why?
  • What’s making you feel the most abundant right now?
  • What does fun feel like to you? And why is fun productive in your life?
  • How do you tap into compassion without getting completely sucked in or drained?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Chris’ childhood as a Jewish American in Puerto Rico
  • The duality of light and dark within all of us
  • Shifting mindset, focus and energy to attract more good
  • Shifting actions to shift results
  • Developing authentic affirmations
  • Determining your why and staying connected to it
  • The importance of having a group of supportive, like-minded friends
  • How Chris creates and uses his vision board
  • How Chris starts every day with meditation/prayers of gratitude
  • Interpreting things in a way that empowers
  • How Chris plans to bring his wisdom to people’s homes
  • And much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“I don’t need to make it happen, I can attract it to happen.”

 

“The power within has the power to really move things in a way you never thought possible.”

 

“When I honor my purpose, I’m happier.”

 

“Create a bulletproof belief about yourself based on who you authentically are.”

 

“The why is the fuel.”

 

“True freedom is the ability to interpret.”

222: UPGRADE Your MELTDOWNS
12:16

Yes, you read this episode’s title correctly – I’m talking about meltdowns today. I’m owning the fact that I’ve had a few more than normal lately and I want you to know that you’re entitled to have them, too.

 

“Meltdowns are healthy – don’t resist them.”

 

Right now, as you’ve heard, I’ve got a lot of amazing things happening, but all of these things are pushing me right to the edge. It’s a lot like feeling like a pressure cooker. The stress builds and builds and I feel like I’m going to burst! And… sometimes I do and that’s OK!

 

As a matter of fact, after my magical Bliss Project event both my husband and I had meltdowns at the end of our short two-day recharge. After we had them though, we felt better. And it’s because we allowed ourselves to move through our emotions!

 

Here’s where the upgrade comes in… You can have a downward spiral, but find the good in it! Don’t let it get out of control to the point where all you’re looking for is the bad. Have the meltdown, but find some good in it by making sure to have a solution-based conversation after – either with a friend, family member or co-worker.

 

I’m not going to lie. Different seasons of your life are going to require EVERYTHING you’ve got and it’s going to feel like it’s never-ending. You’ll likely want to throw the towel in and fly to a remote island. But it won’t always be this way. I promise if you keep going, you will make it to the other side.

 

So, what will make you feel better or more in control in the present moment? Whatever it is, do that. Just make sure that you’re getting super intentional by creating the time and space to recharge. And of course, having that full-out ugly cry will certainly help every now and then, too!

--

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

  • Why you’re entitled to have meltdowns
  • Why meltdowns are healthy
  • Getting intentional with your time and space

220: The Key to Unlocking Your BLISS!
12:40

Today I talk about being authentic as it’s one of the most important things you can follow throughout your lives. But for a lot of us, we find ourselves struggling to attract and connect with the people who we want to connect with. Personally, I discovered later on that it was because I wasn’t showing up fully as myself.

 

I didn’t want others to see that I was anything but “fine” because I didn’t want to be a burden. Instead, to receive much-needed validation, I constantly put myself in the role of fixer and peacekeeper. So in order to start showing my true self, I had to get vulnerable and share more of myself to others (something I still have to make an effort to do).

 

“If we don’t risk vulnerability and rejection, we will never actually have authentic connection.”

 

It won’t always go well, but when you take the risk, you leave yourself open to attract a tribe of people who will act as a safety net for you when you do face your fears. In my book, A Tribe Called Bliss, Be Authentic is one of 7 sacred agreements to creating relationships (I read an excerpt from the book during this episode).

 

Becoming authentic is actually following your joy and what lights you up. When we’re not following that it often has to do with the relationships we’re in. And sometimes we have to weed out the inauthentic relationships that are keeping us tied to the version of ourselves that we think we should show up as.

 

“You can’t be seen if you’re not showing up fully you.”

 

It’s time to get vulnerable and take risks and peel back all the layers of the real you. By doing this you’re able to attract your own tribe and attract all the people you’re meant to attract. Put simply:

 

“Stop trying to fit in and start trying to be more YOU.”

 

Imagine the incredibly powerful shift and movement we can all make with we join forces for good that cannot be stopped. I’m so excited to get this shift started on May 8!

219: Get in Flow by Stepping into Fear with Lindsay Sukornyk
48:29

I’m so thrilled to have my friend and fellow master-minder, Lindsay Sukornyk, back on the show! Not only is she a great coach, yoga instructor and mom, but she’s also one of the best conversationalists I know. When we talk there is never a bad conversation.

 

In this episode, we talk about stepping into fear and reframing it as an opportunity for growth and aliveness. Lindsay and I also discuss the impact nature has when it comes to helping you get into more of a flow state (her Alive + Awake retreats are perfect for this). Regardless, it’s about listening to the “whispers” that nudge you in the direction you’re meant to go. And generally those are the things that resonate with you and make you feel good. Don’t know about you, but I am all for more of that in my life!

 

I guarantee you’ll feel a little lighter after listening to the words of my unicorn friend and eager to elevate your life to the next level (perhaps in Costa Rica?).

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • How did you decide to move to Costa Rica and start doing retreats and other things?
  • What makes you this insane warrior going straight for the fear and straight for the opposite of what’s logical?
  • How do you allow yourself to lean in, have faith and get into the flow state at any time?
  • Why are we so resistant to be ourselves?
  • What is most exciting for you right now?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Lindsay left her elite career because she was unsatisfied and wanted to tap into her highest potential
  • Yoga, mindfulness and spirituality
  • Working remotely and how to make it work
  • How Lindsay changed her perspective on fear and reframed it as an opportunity for growth and aliveness
  • Triggering flow states by stepping into fear
  • The effect nature has on transformation in all forms
  • How Lindsay’s Alive + Awake retreats help others step into their highest potential
  • Lindsay’s book-writing journey so far
  • And much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“Listen to the whispers.”

 

“This way to the good stuff.”

 

“This whole journey for us has been one of leaping into the unknown and making it up as we go and then ultimately listening to the whispers of our souls, but also taking the actions required.”

 

“When we play and have fun, everything can go way faster and far more smoothly – especially when it comes to transformation.”

 

“Surrender to the magic that’s available when we let go of our plans and expectations.”

218: LESS Preparation, MORE Faith
18:07

 

With so many projects happening right now, I’ve had to tap into a different part of myself – a part that requires me to lean into my faith and imperfection. You see for a long time I had a story around the amount of time I needed to create. What I’m finding now is that it was just that – a story.

 

In the past few months, I’ve learned to create (talks, programs etc.) in a much shorter amount of time. And scheduling wise, because I didn’t have a choice, I practiced massive amounts of faith to get it all done!

 

“Everything can be done in the amount of time that you have.”

 

The truth is that we use the amount of time we have – no matter how long that time period is. For example, I took the full 30 days to write my TedTalk – and tweaked right up until the end. I wanted my message to be perfect. But what I’ve found is that my audience doesn’t want to see perfection all the time. And just because I have the time, doesn’t mean I should use it all.

 

“When you over-prepare, over-perfect and over-tweak, you’re not leaving space for faith or trust.”

 

Where in your life are you over-perfecting or over-prepping? Now, don’t get me wrong, you should prepare, but you must leave space for your divine message to come through. Try tapping into what your audience wants to hear. Chances are if you have the fears, they do too. How can you use your experiences to help them overcome them? When you authentically share like this you are inviting yourself and others to up-level and live out your purpose.

 

After all, it isn’t about you – it’s about your audience and the message that you were meant to share. There is so much power in your imperfections – so let them shine through and have faith that others will relate to them as well.

 

“Focus on less perfection and prepping in order for your message to come through.”

 

--

In This Episode We Talk about:

 

  • Upleveling and learning to create in a shorter amount of time
  • Why procrastination can be a gift
  • The power of imperfection and authenticity to change lives

217: Tap In To Your Creative Flow with Hila Plitmann
38:48

Today’s guest, Hila Plitmann, is like me, a regular at SoulCycle. It’s no surprise that I noticed her energy right away as she was always smiling, singing or dancing. But when I heard her angelic voice, it stopped me in my tracks and I knew I had to meet her.

 

Hila connected with music at a very young age, landed her first opera role at age 14 and attended Julliard School of Music. Now a singer and actor, Hila is just as passionate about music now as she was years ago. And once you hear her sing (and our conversation), you’ll see the intention and light behind her.

 

I always love hearing about all of the various creative processes out there and I hope you’ll also enjoy hearing how Hila taps into the feelings of her body with each new project or song.

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What was it for you when you were younger that made you know that you had to follow this dream of singing, and what were the consequences if you didn’t experience or follow it?
  • What would you say to someone who maybe doesn’t know how that creative expression can come about? How do you nurture that?
  • When you go into creation mode, what are you thinking when you want to put something out in the world?
  • Did you recognize your dream and create it? What happened after?
  • What do you do now when you have a lot of extra creative energy?
  • What new things are going on for you right now?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Hila and I connected at SoulCycle
  • Not taking pain too seriously, but rather embracing it and inviting it in
  • Walking and writing to process feelings
  • Releasing self-judgment and criticism
  • Tapping into the feelings of your body to create
  • Hila’s non-structured structured life
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“It’s a state of timelessness when music and stories are in my life.”

 

“Relish and let yourself be in this amazing experience of life.”

216: What Elevating Really Feels Like
11:48

I’m just getting back from my Bliss Project event weekend and honestly still recharging and processing all the magical things that happened. One of the topics we discussed at length was what happens before and after breakthroughs or graduating to the next level.

In my experience as well as other Bliss beauties, I’ve found that when we’re on the verge of the next level of our lives, things start to go wrong. We doubt if we even have what it takes, things feel like they’re falling apart etc., and we want to give up. But if we stick to it and keep pushing through with full-time faith we’re rewarded.

“Full-time faith will always bring us to a higher elevation of life.”

 

Personally, before each new level I’ve discovered that either something from the past comes back to haunt me or my faith is tested by multiple things going the exact opposite way of what I’d planned.

 

We all have “rocket ship” or “coast” moments – we’re either full throttle and feeling a little unsure and sick or breaking through to enjoy the coast that comes after.

 

I would love to tell you that you could go on coast mode your whole life, and things will be easy all the time, but I can’t. Again this is where full-time faith comes in. We must believe that everything, even the bad stuff, is happening for us and helping us get to that next level as soon as possible. 

 

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • What it means to uplevel and what it feels like
  • Why challenges tend to come up right before a breakthrough
  • Why we don’t get to choose when we have faith

214: Everything You Want Is on the Other Side of Fear
13:14

 

This past weekend, I spoke in front of 10,000 people at Grant Cardone’s 10X Growth Conference. And while it was one of the most amazing speaking experiences of my life, it came with a ton of doubt, lack of clarity and more nerves than I’d ever experienced.

 

During the weeks leading up to this event and planning my talk, I struggled to find clarity. I panicked. With several big things happening this past month, I was stuck in my own head and nothing else could come through.

 

“Being busy can be the biggest curse when you’re trying to be creative.” 

 

At this point, doubt crept in and I began to wonder how the hell I even received this opportunity. I knew I was meant to be there and share a message, but I questioned if they had the right Lori Harder. So, I did what I knew I needed to do.

 

I reached out to my Earth angels and asked for their support and confirmation that yes, I could do this, and yes, I was meant to do this. It helped so much. My talk fell into place and it was off to Las Vegas for the conference.

 

However, the day before the event I felt waves of sheer terror. Dizzy at times and feeling like I was going to pass out, I told my husband, “I’m going down.” He quickly helped me reframe with questions such as, “What are you excited about? What are you grateful for?” It helped a little, but I still felt shaken. That is until I stepped onto the stage and saw all of the people. I was instantly grounded and realized that,

 

“No vision is given to us if it’s not for us. We must have faith in that.”

 

When I pictured all of my tribe who supported me, my faith kicked in and I felt calm. I felt a part of me I’d never felt. It was one of the most incredible talks.

 

So, the moral of the story? Have faith. Take risks – even when it scares the crap out of you.

 

“Stop thinking that a mediocre life is going to make you happy.”

 

Everything you want is on the other side of fear. It doesn’t always feel good, but it’s not supposed to. Lean into that uncertainty and know that for all the lows we experience, we often experience an abundance of highs.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • How Lori overcame her anxiety around speaking in front of 10,000 people
  • Why we need full-time faith
  • Why we need to lean into uncertainty

213: How to Help Move Energy Through You So You Can Keep Growing with Scott Stabile
55:10

 

I’ve been a big fan and follower of today’s guest and author Scott Stabile, for a while now. After losing his parents tragically at the age of 14, he felt that he had dealt with the loss in the years after – he did well in school, had a lot of friends, but he kept his parents’ death a secret to all those who didn’t know.

 

It wasn’t until he was in his 20s that Scott jumped into personal development and realized that he never really faced his loss or dealt with the wide range of emotions that were involved. He had built a wall around himself to keep out the dark, but because we can’t be selective about what we let in, he blocked out so much of the light, too.

 

Today, since learning to move through his emotions/energy, Scott has made it his mission to use love as his guiding force in life and serve the world with the power of love and positivity. On every level, he strives to operate from the energy of love, kindness and compassion. Can you imagine if the entire world did this? Scott believes we must focus on showing up in our own truth and then aligning ourselves in love.

 

I cannot thank Scott enough for being so open and honest and willing to share so much of his heart with us today. It has definitely further engrained in me to originate everything I do in love to obtain the best outcome. And if you love this, you’ll really want to check out his book, “Big Love.”

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • Where did your story start?
  • What did it look like when your wall was up? What was the turning point?
  • What did the space look like when you had to go back and heal, forgive and let go of the shame?
  • Is there something else you do to help move your energy/emotions through?
  • What was the moment that helped you see what you needed to let go?
  • How do we show up with an “open” intention?
  • What is something you do when neediness (or another emotion) comes up again?
  • Why did you write “Big Love?”

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Scott’s tragic loss of his parents at age 14 and how it affected him
  • Getting honest with your feelings and sitting in the uncomfortable
  • The energy and discovery that comes with writing
  • The power of conversations to help move energy/emotions through
  • The importance of self-care
  • How breathing in a conscious way can unlock pockets of darkness
  • Showing up in your truth and having an awareness of how you’re showing up in the world
  • The power of intention, acceptance and flexibility
  • Self-love – becoming aware of it and making it a practice

Quotes:

 

“Love is the guiding force in my life.”

 

“Unless we’re honest about what we’re experiencing in the world and unless we’re willing to sit in the uncomfortable feelings and feel, there is no potential for healing.”

 

“When you’re ready to grow and heal, and you’re really open to looking at yourself and your experience honestly, life is going to provide ample opportunity for you to do so.”

 

“When I’m taking care of myself, I feel more taken care of by the world.”

 

“When we’re willing to take responsibility for how we’re showing up in the world, the possibilities for growth are endless.”

 

“We can be clear on our intentions, but that doesn’t always mean that we’re going to get what we want. And it certainly doesn’t mean that we’re going to get what we want in the way we want to receive it.”

 

“Wherever we’re putting our energy toward avoiding feeling, we’re giving all of our energy toward that feeling.”

 

“What does love invite me to do in this moment?”

 

“Go within. Go to love. Love is the key to joy.”

212: How to BUILD A TRIBE that Takes You to the Next Level
20:58

 

Now that my book is available for pre-order, I am over the moon excited to talk a bit more about it and the journey it’s taken me on so far. First of all, I’ve always felt there was a book inside me waiting to be shared with the world, I just didn’t know when and I certainly didn’t know how it would happen.

 

It may come as shock to some that I’ve been working on this book for nearly four years now, but after many rejections, the publishing company that I wished for accepted my proposal and offered me the exact amount I had envisioned. The rejections were hard, but I only needed one yes, and I had faith that it would come.

 

“When we continue to choose faith, it’s going to show up in a completely different way thank you expect.”

 

But once my book proposal was accepted and we talked timelines, I did the unthinkable. I scrapped everything I’d written and started over. I knew so much more than what I initially wrote about and knew that this book was going to be a launch pad for a bigger movement. The book title, A Tribe Called Bliss, hit me like a lightning bolt on a plane ride home from a getaway with my husband. I knew, without a doubt, the message my book was meant to tell.

 

So here it is: we are not meant to do this all alone. We need to surround ourselves with a tribe that up-levels our lives, but also supports us and holds us accountable to our goals. But after many years of unknowingly searching for this tribe, I know it’s not an easy task. And that’s where this book comes in. I walk you through how to build your own tribe, step by step, and provide you with scripts and talking points to help you and your tribe reach your highest potential. There will be bumps along the way, but I’ve also included tips to help you remedy them.

 

It is my hope that you all grab a copy of this book and invite others to join you. I can only imagine the energy that will be pulsing through the universe when women do this together. I know firsthand that I would be lost without the support and encouragement I have in mine.

 

“It takes a tribe to build a tribe.”

211: Why You're Supposed to LIVE Your DREAM LIFE with Sheri Salata
01:05:07

 

You know how you meet someone and you instantly feel a soul connection? That’s exactly what it felt like when I heard today’s guest, Sheri Salata, speak at an AWE (Amazing Women Entrepreneurs) event about a year ago. I loved her energy and identified with her when she began speaking, and I then had the honor of meeting her briefly. Needless to say, I’d been dying to interview her ever since and was thrilled when were finally able to sit down and chat – in person!

 

Sheri is funny, successful and soulful – a powerful trifecta if I ever heard of one. With a 21-year career with The Oprah Winfrey Show, she admittedly had the dreamy career, but she realized she didn’t have the dreamy life. And she came to discover that it was because she forgot how to dream and use happiness (not misery) as her compass.

 

As Sheri and her friend’s podcast, “This is Fifty,” suggests, it’s never too late to change your story, find happiness and follow your dreams – no matter what your age is.

 

This was one of the fastest hours of my life and I know this episode will fly for you too. It’s my hope that you soak in every moment of Sheri’s dreamy goodness and put on your magical glasses to see the miracles that surround us all.

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What did it feel like when you knew there was something else?
  • How did you start to calibrate your “compass?”
  • What do you tell women who think it’s too late or that their dreams have passed?
  • What is a story you feel you’re working through right now?
  • What is on your “to-be” list?
  • How do you get your “being space” rolling?
  • Where are you getting joy from during your 90-day cleanse?
  • What are you most excited about?
  • What are you a beginner at right now?
  • When you spot something (a miracle), do you call it out or celebrate it?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • What Sheri knows right now
  • Why happiness is the right compass (not misery)
  • Dreaming as a muscle and a valuable activity
  • Changing your story to make your dreams come true
  • What achievement means to Sheri now
  • The importance of having ONE integrated life
  • Why Sheri seeks happiness, joy, love and peace in everything
  • What it means to be in the “being space” of manifesting
  • Being in integrity with yourself and making tweaks as you go
  • Clarity and what it means to Sheri
  • Why it’s important to lean into self-care rituals and the energy that’s going to help you manifest your dreams
  • Sheri and her friend’ Nancy’s This is Fifty podcast
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“I’m a champion resetter and reframer.”

 

“Happiness is the right compass.”

 

“Stories make our dreams come true.”

 

“Reimagine what’s possible and reignite that flame.”

 

“I work on my ‘to-be’ list, not my to-do list.”

 

“You can have the greatest boss in the world, but you’re still getting bossed.”

 

“I only want to be on the joy road.”

 

“Be a ‘BE-er” of transformation, not a talker about it.”

 

“Dreams put you in a state of potential and possibility while appreciating where you’re at right now.”

 

“There’s no more important story than the story you’re telling yourself about yourself.”

 

“Don’t lose hope in your own possibilities.”

 

“Stir the hope soup.”

 

“Hope is the beginning of the trail.”

 

“You’re supposed to live the life of your dreams.”

210: How to Navigate the Puzzle Pieces of LIFE
15:38

 

In a recent Instagram post, I shared how life was a lot like buying something from IKEA. You ask for something and you receive it, but it’s nothing like you expected. It comes in pieces, there are no directions and oh, your dog ate the instructions. So now you have to figure out how to make something out of this mess. It’s time to get resourceful.

 

Life is much the same. Every day you’re thrown a new obstacle – whether it’s relationships, love or business – that you must navigate through. You build the skills as you go – and more than likely crash and burn a couple of times – but you learn what works and what doesn’t. These challenges aren’t obstacles, they’re lessons and it’s our job to figure out what they are.

 

I’m right in the middle of a huge “IKEA delivery.” So many pieces, with zero direction and I don’t know which end is up. Can you relate? I’ve once again had to allow myself to be a beginner and create a new process as I go. It’s rocky, but I’ve learned that I can let myself to kick, scream and cry so long as I’m putting in the time and work. There’s a TON of lessons being learned and I know I will use them moving forward.

 

“Obstacles are here to serve me, not break me down.”

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why we must choose adversity before it chooses us
  • How life delivers you exactly what you’re asking for
  • Why we need to find the lessons among the obstacles

209: How Radical Truth Telling Solves Everything with Lauren Zander
56:48

Oh my goodness, today’s episode with life coach and author, Lauren Zander, rocked my world! I had so many self-realizations during our conversation, I had to remind myself that it wasn’t a coaching session for me!

 

With a degree in environmental studies, Lauren took a job in the field right after college. But as time went on she realized that while she loved the cause, she was unhappy with the actual work. From there, she pivoted into the only self-help company she knew of and worked there for seven years until she ran out “screaming” and started her own personal coaching business.

 

Fast-forward to today and Lauren’s coaching company, The Handel Group, runs four different divisions dedicated to helping individuals and businesses alike create cultures that promote happiness and allow everyone to excel. Almost nothing is off limits when her and her teams deep-dive into their clients’ worlds to figure out what the problems are and what needs to change or be fixed.

 

I have a feeling that you’re going to run out and grab Lauren’s book or her coaching programs because I know it made me want to! She promotes the truth and she speaks nothing but – and it’s just so refreshing. Enjoy!

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • Where do shifts begin for people?
  • How do you get a smaller culture not to be afraid to share how they feel?
  • What’s something we can do to shift into a powerful mindset?
  • What are some of your favorite ways to connect people?
  • What are you most excited about with your book, Maybe It’s You?
  • Have you been in front of an issue that you felt was so big you didn’t want to begin?
  • How do we know when it’s time for a person to not be in our lives?
  • What recharges you?
  • Is there anything in your life that feels like it needs completion?
  • Is there something you need to release and care less about in order to care more about where you’re going?
  • What inspires you?
  • Do you have favorite books?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Lauren’s transition from environmental studies to self-help and coaching
  • The many different modalities of Lauren’s company, the Handel Group
  • How to help people feel more comfortable in smaller groups
  • When leaders don’t lead
  • How everyone has the ability to change a culture and be a leader
  • Lauren’s book, “Maybe It’s You”
  • How people ignore their self-dialogue and how it affects them
  • Why telling the truth is the easiest and best thing to do
  • The things you tolerate in people and what keeps them around in your life
  • The promises Lauren keeps with her co-workers
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“Self-discovery is actually the way to make a lot more money and be happy.”

 

“Anyone can change a culture.”

 

“Anyone can wake up and decide to be a leader.”

 

“Truth-telling is not that complicated.”

 

“Stop thinking you need to lie.”

208: The Real Life Cycle - FEEL, REFRAME, REPEAT
15:52

Last week, I had the privilege of traveling to Guatemala as part of Pencils of Promise, an organization that’s committed to building sustainable schools. And wow, what a life-shifting and world-changing trip. I thought I was already rooted in gratitude, but this trip really grounded me and made me even more grateful for everything.

 

Pure transparency, this trip didn’t come at an ideal time with my crazy schedule. But it actually turned out to be THE perfect time for me to get a major (and much-needed) perspective shift and reframe.

 

Upon returning, I found myself grateful for the sidewalk, clean water, my bed, but especially my cup of coffee – you name it! In the village where we stayed, they literally grow their own coffee beans, pick them, roast them and then brew their cup. This particular village has only had electricity for five years and most have homes with dirt floors. How often do we all tend to take these things for granted? Some of the things we worry about are so small when you look at other parts of the world. My advice:

 

“Choose what you’re going to hold tight near and dear to your heart. And choose what you’re going to let go of.”

 

There is so much that doesn’t matter. Choose to focus on the people you love and get more love out into the world. Focus on giving back, spreading your message and doing what you love so you can make YOUR impact on the world.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why it’s so powerful to find beauty in the simple things
  • Why we must share our message with love
  • How perspective and gratitude change everything

207: Move into an Abundant Mindset for Maximum Growth with Dynamic Duo Eric & Chris Martinez
49:21

I’m so happy to have fitness experts and coaches, Chris and Eric Martinez (Dynamic Duo), on the show today! After dealing with the tragic loss of their father at the young age of 17, both were left with a lot of anger when dealing with that pain. After some missteps along the way (we all have them), they made the decision to stop stewing in their pain and pursue their passion. After stumbling on and becoming inspired by a magazine article, they took action to get coached and followed up by earning their certifications and creating Dynamic Duo Training.

 

Now they’re teaching all their clients how to make massive shifts in their mindsets to promote growth and abundance while working on the physical as well.

206: THREE Questions That Can SHIFT Your Life!
15:35

As I’ve shared in recent episodes, my plate is currently full ­­– the fullest it’s ever been with the most beautiful, epic things. But here’s the flip side, I still get anxiety around it all and feel overwhelmed. With that in mind, it’s imperative that I find the peace in between the moments of chaos.

 

Thankfully my husband shared three life-shifting questions from Tim Ferriss with me to help shift my perspective when I feel chaos creeping in. I cannot believe what a game-changer they’ve been in the past week. These questions are to be asked whenever you’re presented with a task that you’re either dreading, nervous about or just plain unsure of how you feel about it. Are you ready? The three questions are:

 

  1. What would this look like if it were fun?
  2. What would this look like if it were easy?
  3. What would this look like if it were graceful?

 

These are the questions asked by those who want to live an epic life. Just the other day, these questions helped me show up for a call as my authentic self. I didn’t pretend to be someone I wasn’t. I approached it with zero expectations and made an authentic connection and the call ended with a surprising (incredible!) outcome. When you incorporate these questions into your life, you’re also inviting in more ease, forgiveness and power to let go of the things that aren’t serving you.

 

Feel like giving it a whirl? Try asking these questions for a day and let me know how it works for you by sharing under my post. It’s so exciting to share the tools I’ve used and I love to hear how they’re helping you, too!

  • The three questions that can help you live an epic life
  • Why it’s important to make and have authentic connections
  • What it means to find sustainability

205: How Science Can Help You Learn to Eat Intuitively with Kelly Leveque
58:59

 

My guest, health nutritionist and author, Kelly LeVeque and I have been circling each other for quite a while, which makes me so ecstatic that we were finally able to connect. With an early interest in health (it was her favorite class in high school), she went to college and after worked eight years in the cancer and genetics field. During this time, however, Kelly still felt pulled to help others with their nutrition and did so as she was able. It wasn’t until a friend finally told her “enough already,” that she went back to college for nutritional coaching and has been seeing clients full time since 2015.

 

Kelly truly loves the science behind nutrition and uses the power of it to motivate her clients and elevate their nutrition choices. She admits that she doesn’t believe in eliminating food groups, but does stress the importance of finding the right balance for YOUR body (hint blood sugar plays a big role). We talk about several aspects of this philosophy and you can find even more of them in her new book, Body Love. I related with so much of this conversation and suspect that you will too, so be prepared for your brain to grow a little.  

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • Is there any exercise you do to help yourself get really clear on what you need?
  • When a client has the same issue repeatedly is there something you always look at or are there multiple tests?
  • For people who are stuck, where do you begin?
  • How do you balance the points between sticking to it and sabotage?
  • What are some of the main side effects that you see?
  • Have you ever been addicted to caffeine?
  • What is the biggest myth you’ve run into when looking at intake forms?
  • Do you ever see where you can find joy in experiences versus food?
  • What do you do when you’re seeking comfort?
  • What have you learned about yourself because of eating cleaner?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Bio-individuality and Kelly’s pillars of nutritional needs
  • Learning to love yourself at your fit weight
  • Intuitive eating
  • How Kelly uses science to motivate clients
  • The importance and effects of insulin and cortisol
  • Side effects of different foods
  • How science can set you free with your diet
  • Avoiding the drastic “pendulum swings” and finding balance
  • Setting attainable goals
  • What Kelly does to decompress
  • Making healthier replacement comfort foods
  • Taking charge of your health and understanding it
  • How a glucometer works
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“You have to be willing to change.”

 

“If you’re balanced and satisfied, you know what you can and can’t do.”

 

“Little changes become habits.”

 

“Make it a choice, not a cheat.”

 

“Blood sugar is an indicator of what’s to come.”

204: Why GROWTH Doesn't Always FEEL GOOD
20:04

Growth doesn’t feel good all the time. I’ve mentioned this before, but over the past couple months it’s been proven even more as I’ve noticed that my career and life are at totally new and different levels. Don’t get me wrong, this all feels amazing…but it’s ALL new things and quite honestly, it’s a bit overwhelming and scary. There is so much that I don’t know about where I’m at and I’ve come to the realization that I need to be OK with that.

 

“Allow yourself to be where you’re at. Allow yourself to be a beginner.”

 

This mucky, but glorious spot means more growth is on the horizon. Nothing is ever as it seems and there is always a period of adjustment. Welcome it and enjoy the ride. All those moments that feel awkward and clunky as hell? Embrace them.

 

“Find the lesson in the resistance.”

 

Sure, we could stay at the same level year after year, but deep down your spirit doesn’t want that. It craves growth and your life has unlimited levels to achieve. I mean could you imagine staying at the exact same level for the rest of your life? Me neither.

 

Don’t forget, this isn’t a race. Even if it feels like you’re not moving, or you feel too busy or things are coming and going in your life – be grateful for all of it. Everything is happening for you and you will not miss what was meant for you. Every moment has a purpose, whether it’s to clear space, slow you down or take you to the next level.

 

Root yourself in the present moment, shift your perspective and find the lesson in it. Believe that everything that is for you will find its way to you – and it will.

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • That growth doesn’t feel good all the time
  • Why it’s OK to feel like a beginner again
  • Why we need resistance for growth

203: How to Make the Adjustments to STAY ALIGNED with YOUR GREATER VISION with Regan Hillyer
01:03:40

I’ve been so eager to connect with today’s guest, entrepreneur, world-traveler and speaker, Regan Hillyer, ever since we briefly chatted at an event a few months ago. And I’m thrilled that dreams come true!

 

Originally from New Zealand, Regan started out on the path to become an architect, but after a fateful visualization exercise, the idea of becoming an architect left her feeling sick to her stomach, and she knew at her core it wasn’t her truth.

 

After sharing this realization with her father, she was crystal clear on what she didn’t want, but had no clue what was on the other side of that. That’s when she threw herself into personal development. The powerful shifts came a couple years into this journey, so much so that people started asking her how she did it and she got her first experience as a “coach.”

 

Since that time, Regan has helped thousands of other men and women in their self-development journeys find their truths, too. Whether it’s financial or personal, she coaches others to be true to who they are and help them build six- and seven-figure businesses in the process.

 

I could have talked on and on and with Regan – I was soaking it all up! She offers so much knowledge and even talks about her different rituals that help her stay aligned with her goals and mission. If you’re looking to gain more clarity around your goals, this episode is a great kickstart! Enjoy!

202: FAITH Means Trusting THIS...
19:05

 

This past weekend, I attended an event for the network marking company I’m affiliated with it and it was incredible! Every year around this time I always reflect and am so grateful for the relationships it has brought into my life. I honestly never thought I would be part of this type of company (it took a long time and ton of fear), but despite the nay-sayers and my own initial reservations, I haven’t regretted it for a second.

 

So if you’re feeling fear around something and/or a pull on your soul, go for it and ignore all the background noise within and outside – I’m living proof. Trust me, after creating a podcast, network marketing and writing a book, I’ve come to trust my soul to guide me in the right direction. But in order to do so, I have to consistently keep chipping away day by day at my goals.

 

“Consistency trumps everything.”

 

If you keep showing up and learning, you will go exactly where the message on your soul means for you to go. And this often times means ignoring the protective voices in your head and of others. Ditch the stories that swirl around in your head and choose the thoughts that align with your message. And yes, we ALL have a message (that means you!).

 

“If you have a pulse, you have a message.”

 

Your message is as unique as you are, so if you haven’t pinned down exactly what it is, don’t worry, you just need to listen more closely and give it a bit more time. Even if you think that pull is something far too simple… stop and listen. Does it bring you fulfillment or happiness? Ding, ding – you’ve got a winner, and now you must protect it.

 

Full honesty? It takes a ton of bravery to create boundaries and protect your goals and message. After all, your goals are linked to your happiness. But let’s not forget faith. It is imperative that you have faith throughout the winding process of life.

 

“Faith is trusting that you’re forgiven in the face of no closure.”

 

What do I mean by this? Lately, I’ve had to say no to a lot of people who I’ve wanted to say yes to. I’m a people pleaser (old habits die hard), but I work on it every day. Sometimes when I say no or have to leave a conversation abruptly, I feel such guilt and fear that someone will be upset with me. The reality though is that they likely didn’t even notice. And if they did, they either understand or will forget it in a matter of minutes.

 

“Create boundaries around the things that are leaking your energy.”

 

Stop leaking your energy by carrying guilt for something that doesn’t exist! Give yourself the gift of closure – forgive and move on. I’m not saying that you won’t have your challenges along the way, but preserve your energy to fulfill your goals/message.

 

“Big, bold steps take energy and bravery.”

 

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why we need to create boundaries to protect our goals and message
  • The importance of whole-heartedly having faith and forgiveness
  • How you can gain energy back by getting closure

200: How To MAKE MORE TIME and ENERGY for Your Goals
19:09

I don’t know about you, but I love the natural reset that occurs with a new year. It’s a way to reset our intentions and make sure our time and energy are in alignment with our goals. But often times, this extra time and energy never come around because we’ve already taken up the “extra” with anxiety and stressful thoughts that don’t serve us.

 

So today we’re talking about how we can get more time, energy and willpower. And the simplest (but not necessarily the easiest way) is to clear your mental space.

 

“Fuel the potential and focus on the possibility.”

 

This means no focusing on what could go wrong and only focusing on all the amazing things that could go right. Become aware of overwhelming thoughts. And when you feel those thoughts sneaking in redirect them to something positive. What would help you right in that moment? What do you need? A walk outside? A fresh cup of coffee? A talk with a friend? Making a to-do list? Whatever it is, do that. Seriously, find THE smallest thing that helps you feel better.

 

Next, close the loops! You know all those small, trivial things that happen day after day – let them go! For instance, you’re driving and someone cuts you off. You’re mad, and what could be a quick blip of annoyance turns into 20 minutes of fuming over a person who hasn’t thought twice about it. You just used up 20 minutes of your mental energy – and it didn’t help you (or that person) at all. Use your energy wisely. Use your thoughts to fuel your dreams, and get more drive and willpower. Don’t waste your mental space on a bad driver or something equally as simple.

 

Now I’m not saying that you can’t ever get mad – it happens! But we must remember to shift out of those low-level (draining) thoughts as quickly as possible. Think of low-level thoughts as energetic sandbags. For each low-level thought, add a sandbag and carry it around. Another low-level thought? Add another… Imagine if we never ditched these energetic sandbags, how weighed down we’d feel.

 

We need to close the open loops that are draining our mental batteries by forgiving and getting rid of any indecision in the process. Once you do, you’ll replace any pain, indecision, guilt or shame with more peace, ease, space and power in your mind. And I don’t know about you, but that’s my favorite space to be in.

 

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why the new year is such a great time for a reset
  • How to create more time, energy and space in your brain
  • What it means to close open loops
  • And much more

Peta Kelly's most favourite title is HUMAN AF. She is a conscious entrepreneur, author, speaker and philanthropist. She was recently featured in Forbes Magazine and was just ranked by Inc Magazine in the Top 10 Female Entrepreneurs changing the world.

 

She’s is an unbridled soul and barefoot bandit on a mission to unleash the jeaniius of GenY’s globally.

She dropped being a PhD science nerd at the age of 22 and went on the pursuit of that ‘thing’ that was calling her higher. That's when she found her first business pursuit in network marketing and She became a 7 figure a year earner in Isagenix by the age of 26. Her network marketing journey led her to her bigger, more global soul work and now she’s building a global enterprise, Jeaniius – a global hub of nakedly brilliant people, mobilized to create change for our planet through conscious enterprise and magical collaborations.

 

Peta teaches the new way to live, lead, earn and give and what excites her the most is bringing her brilliant, badass generation together as one team and one family so that we can gift our planet and our kiddies, an environment where they can thrive. Peta is an angel gifter and a silent investor, and thrives on expanding the cycle of abundance and contribution, especially when it allows young people to kick ass in their endeavors. A millennial with a love of millennials, Peta speaks on global stages, barefoot, to tens of thousands of people, and to millions through her various platforms, sharing visionary messages of conscious living to move hearts and minds to what’s possible.

 

Self-described as an alien, a “vessel” for what needs to flow through her, Peta is the creator of The New Way Live, Jeaniius and The Supercharged and she’s got her first book on the way in early 2018.

Peta was recently featured on The Rise Up movie with Michael Bernard Beckwith, Jack Canfield, Danielle LaPorte, Gabby Bernstein, Marie Forleo, Tony Robbins, The Dalai Lama and more.

 

She's a new Mum to her beautiful daughter Sol and has now found a new supersized passion for empowering women to create a beautiful pregnancy and birth experience.

197: How to FREE YOURSELF from JUDGMENT with Gabby Bernstein
54:21

One of my favorite (and most frequent) guests, Gabby Bernstein is back, and I know you’re all just as thrilled as I am. We even joked that she should be a co-host (you never know, right?). Today we’re talking about judgment, and I personally couldn’t agree more with the importance of talking about this topic. Judgment is the root of so many problems and whether we’re judging others or ourselves, it’s so bad that we barely realize we’re doing it.

 

Believing that deep down we are all loving, kind and compassionate people, Gabby felt called to write her newest book, Judgment Detox, in an effort to explain how judgment separates us from our true nature and instead makes us feel guilty, which in turn makes us judge more, which again makes us feel guilty and so on – the judgment cycle.

 

Fortunately, she has a six-step process that is virtually guaranteed to help us all out and it could not come at a better time for the entire world. Don’t miss out on this enlightening episode as she gives us a few sneak peeks of the wisdom in her latest book as well as a look into her creative process, asking for help and her hopes for a baby in 2018. I can’t wait for you to hear (and share) this beautiful conversation with others!

 

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • Can you share why you wrote Judgment Detox and what it is?
  • Was judgment something that kept coming up for you so much that you wrote the book?
  • When there’s an addiction to something, what do you think it’s serving and how do we interrupt the pattern?
  • What creative process do you use that honors the messages you write about?
  • How do you set up each of your writing sessions, and what rituals do you do beforehand?
  • How did you discover your writing strengths and weaknesses?
  • What’s one of the biggest boundaries you’ve had to set up or reinforce?
  • What does your self-talk look like when you walk away from stress?
  • Have you missed out on anything from implementing this boundary?
  • How do you enjoy the process when there are so many new opportunities coming your way?
  • What advice would you give someone who's ready to step out into their goals and dreams, but has fear around putting themselves out there?
  • What has been one of the biggest things you’ve implemented in 2017 that has helped you the most?
  • What is the best advice you feel you’ve ever gotten?
  • What is your biggest hope for Judgment Detox?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Why Gabby wrote Judgment Detox
  • How the book is designed to help change your beliefs that hold you back with her six-step process
  • Why judgment is the root cause of all of our problems
  • Gabby’s definition of the “judgment cycle”
  • What Gabby’s healing with her Judgment Detox process and what she’s still working on
  • The wounds that lie beneath judgment
  • The Emotion Freedom Technique (tapping)
  • How Gabby writes to heal
  • The importance of finding what makes you feel safe
  • Making it a priority to hire help sooner than later
  • Hiring people for their energy, not necessarily their experience
  • The timing of pregnancy and babies
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

“Judgment is such a huge separation from our spiritual connection and our alignment to a higher power.”

 

“When we judge we separate from love.”

 

“Witness your judgment without judgment.”

 

“I don’t believe in my judgment anymore.”

196: Find The Courage To Live The Life You Were Meant For
22:05

Can you believe it? This is my last official quickie of 2017! What a ride 2017 was. And before I get into things here, and no matter what happened, I want you to acknowledge everything that happened – good and bad – and how it’s helped you learn.

 

Try to reframe the word failure, because it’s not always about winning or failing, it’s about learning or… learning. Yes! Can you we agree to take the word failure out of our vocabulary? As Nelson Mandela once said, “I don’t lose. I either win or learn.”

 

We need the contrast to help guide us where to go next. Personally, there we several things that I hoped to accomplish or have a different outcome within 2017, but it just made me realize that those dips and darkness were needed to amplify all the good things.

 

“The failures just tell you what to do next.”

 

And it was often the opposite of what I thought. Whether you lost a business, a friendship or a relationship, you learned. We are always learning and all the things we learn only help us live in our purpose. But here’s the thing, in order to realize all this, we need to find the courage to go against the grain. We need to say no. We need to do things that challenge what others say is the right thing to do.

 

You don’t need new goals; you just need to have the courage to say no to things that aren’t elevating your life. And trust me, it’s not going to be easy, but when you really dig deep and think outside the box, you can say truthfully that you lived a life that fully made you expand into the human you were meant to be.

 

“Step into your courage and into your truth.”

 

Wishing you abundance and bravery in 2018 – I cannot wait to see you rock your life!

 

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why failures are part of our success
  • How deeper courage won’t show up until you call upon it
  • Why you don’t necessarily need new goals to live in your highest purpose

Photographer, jewelry maker and my guest today, Liana Louzon and I go way back (more than a decade) to my fitness competition days. It’s safe to say that a lot has changed, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the positive, driven and encouraging vibe that she gives off just by speaking with her.

Originally from Russia, Liana made her way to Canada at the age of 14 and shares her journey of assimilating and learning a new language. While there were times of struggle, Liana learned to tap into her intuition and has since used that very skill to forge ahead in her creative businesses – namely her jewelry company, Rocking Vibe.

If you’re a creative or longing to get MORE creative, be sure to listen in to hear how Liana taps into both her intuition, gets in her “zone,” and as a result creates a springboard for creativity.

--

Born and raised in Moscow, Russia, Liana immigrated to Canada at the age of 14. While learning English as a second language, Liana found that artistry (including her passion for photography as well as jewelry making and beading) helped her feel grounded and became a way of expressing herself as she faced the challenges of life in a new country. As her life evolved, Liana became a mother which ignited her desire to use her passion to contribute to a better future. In the summer of 2014, the idea of Rocking Vibe glimmered in her heart, and it wasn’t long before that spark became a fierce fire and Rocking Vibe was created.

194: The Soul PULLS, The Ego PUSHES - Goals and New Year's Resolutions
13:41

 

With the New Year a week away, goals and resolutions are at the forefront of everyone’s mind. And while this is a super exciting time of year, it can also be super overwhelming, too. Especially if you don’t feel you were successful with the previous year’s goals.

So here’s what I suggest this year (and every year for that matter): Focus on RIGHT NOW, and you’ll figure out the HOW later.

“It’s now about the how, it’s about knowing what you desire.”

Get clear on one or two goals and make sure they’re in alignment with your desires. Nothing is set in stone so let your feelings guide you. If you’re having trouble getting clear, try sitting for five minutes or more in the morning (or whenever you have the time) and ask yourself, “What would bring me the most joy?” Additionally, “How can I serve others and still bring myself joy?”

Sometimes it’s a matter of reframing and refocusing on things that already exist in your life. For me this past year, it was my online Body + Soul Program. I knew I wanted to attract more people into my tribe, but the more I focused on those that I didn’t have, the more lack I felt. So I reframed and focused on the people who I already had.

“I manifested more of what I wanted because I was grateful for what I already had.”

Focus on what you want. Focus on the those “pop” or “soul hit” moments that make you feel alive while also fulfilling your purpose. Pay attention and let those moments continue to pull you – even if your ego pushes back. There will be resistance, but you can always refocus, reframe and get back in alignment with your true desires.

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why it’s important to gain clarity on 1 or 2 goals
  • Why you don’t need to focus on the HOW when it comes to your goals
  • Why we must pay attention to our “soul hits”

192: How to Avoid Trashing Your MINDSET and Environment
13:14

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.

191: How to Grow Your Business by Growing Yourself with Andy Murphy
01:00:16

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.­

190: How To Move From INTERESTED to COMMITTED
17:10

 

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

189: BUSTING STEREOTYPES with Plus-Size Model, TV Star and WWE Superstar Nia Jax
43:45

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.

188: Relationships Are Our Biggest Teachers
12:40

 

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

187: Quiet the Mind to Get The Answers You Seek with SealFit Mark Divine
01:05:24

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.

--

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.

186: Finding Space Amid the Chaos
19:45

 

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

185: Release Your Victim and Wake Up Your HERO with Wes Chapman

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.

184: Why EVERYONE Needs To Shake Up Their Lives
15:53

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.

182: Getting SO Vulnerable I Could Barf, Seriously
20:34

 

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

179: Mistakes and a Little Bit of Crazy Are Vital in Order for Your Dreams to Happen with Lorna Jane Clarkson
01:05:09

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!

178: Become The REAL You
17:37

 

“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

177: Removing The Masks That Hold You Back with Lewis Howes
01:08:15

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.

“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.”

176: How To Be Your OWN GURU
14:02

 

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

174: Allowing Yourself to Process is the First Step in Helping Others
11:00

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

172: How to START Doing What You WANT To Be Doing
10:05

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

170: How To BECOME Your HIGHEST SELF
09:55

 

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

168: How to Select the RIGHT People for a Tribe Who Help You Reach the Next Level
15:06

 

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

167: How to Claim Your Power and Get to the Root Cause of What’s Holding You Back with Mastin Kipp
50:43

As a long-time follower of Mastin Kipp’s work, I am beyond thrilled to share our conversation with you. Not only does he talk about his journey (business and spiritual) up to this point, but he also touches on how his purpose seemed to evade him until recently and how he turned that experience into his new book, Claim Your Power. I’m currently reading it and it’s so amazing that he offers a practical step-by-step process to help you find your purpose, bring it to life and get out of your own way.

 

I love that Mastin is so transparent when it comes to his journey and I’m honored that he shares what he’s learned and experienced firsthand. There are so many powerful takeaways that can help you return to your natural state of happiness. If you’re willing and ready to work on finding your purpose this podcast is a must listen.

166: Give Life to More POSSIBILITIES by Making Less Excuses
10:41

 

Today’s quickie is all about the word (and thing) justification. I once was a pro at justifying why I was the way I was (fearful, anxious etc.). I spent SO much time, energy and efforts on the excuses as to why I couldn’t do x-y-z when I could have been investing my time into my dreams!

So let’s try a little exercise… Let’s replace the word justification with excuses. Let’s call out those excuses and see them for what they truly are – false glass ceilings – because that’s all they really are no matter what you might think.

 

“Human beings can do whatever we believe we can do.”

 

So look for the justifications/excuses in your life right now and write them down.

 

“If your thoughts are going toward your justifications and excuses, you’re actually living for them.”

 

So which is it for you? Are you living to keep your dreams alive or are you choosing to fan the flames that keep the fires of justification and excuses burning? Take a deep look and discover what you’re really living for. Hint: If your time is spent making excuses and justifying, you’re never going to give the power to your presence to be able to move forward into your dreams.

 

“Give the power to your presence.”

 

Your family, friends and the world need your gift right NOW. Of course there will always be a dose of fear that comes along with it, but embrace it knowing that it feels a whole lot better than never stepping into your full potential.

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why justifying and making excuses are holding you back from your dreams
  • How to call out your excuses
  • About the importance of breathing life into your dreams instead of your excuses

165: Surrender Your Way to Success and Become a Magnet for Your Dreams with Danika Brysha
01:00:00

EYH – Ep. 165 – Danika Brysha – Surrender your way to success and become a magnet for your dreams

 

Today’s guest, Model Meals Founder and CEO, Danika Brysha, may look a little familiar to some of you as she’s been a part of several campaigns as a plus-size/curve model for big names such as Target and Old Navy. While she has a successful modeling career now, it was winding road to get there.

 

From a young age, Danika continually struggled to feel that she was enough when it came to her body. Growing up in the era of the size double-zero, she focused on her weight for more than a decade of her life. This fixation eventually reached its breaking point when it led to bulimia and dental issues.

 

Wanting to take care of her body better, Danika stopped throwing up but turned to drugs to keep the weight at bay. This went on for quite some time until she graduated college in the television industry and had had it with her body image struggle. She let go and let herself settle into where her body naturally fell (about a size 12/14). She was soon approached by an agent who suggested that she get into plus-size modeling. After signing with an agency and moving out to New York, her modeling career took off, but she soon hit another snag.

 

Wanting to start off the New Year (a new career and move, too) renewed, she tried the Whole30 meal plan. She was blown away by her results and not only did she lose 15 pounds, but she was amazed at how much clarity she had and how amazing she felt. Her plus-size modelings clients didn’t agree and she started to lose modeling gigs. As a way to earn money, Danika offered to help people in New York City eat cleaner by making meals for them. This side-business went well, but she still wasn’t able to make ends meet.

 

It wasn’t long before Danika moved back to California where she grew up and moved into her parents’ garage. This was a serendipitous moment, however as it led to the eventual launch pf Model Meals with a friend and Danika has since signed with a new modeling agency.

 

Danika’s journey of self-love is one of several ups and downs, but instead of fighting against them she’s learned to surrender and use her own feelings as a guide through them. Her story is so relatable and there’s something that everyone can take away from it. I hope you enjoy our conversation as much I did.

164: How To Stop SABOTAGING OURSELVES
16:45

How many of you scroll through social media more often than you’d like to admit? Hand raised here! But check this out… My friend, Michael Zeller, just informed me the other day that when you’re distracted from a task, it takes 13 minutes for your mind to get back on track. So just think, if you’re sidetracked even four times a day, that’s a WHOLE hour of floundering trying to get back on track. This is why we must…

“Get fierce with eliminating distractions.”

These days our thoughts and social media are the winners when it comes to time-wasting. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it’s always bad to spend time on social media, but it is when all you’re doing is comparing or numbing out. For instance, are you really just checking in on Jane, or do you immediately start comparing her life to yours when you look at her pictures? If the latter sounds familiar, I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone, and you CAN stop comparing yourself to others, But first, you have to beat the addiction to comparison (and the other common addictions such as judgment, blame and numbing out). Below is a chart of the common saboteurs and alternative practices you can implement to help rid yourself of those addictions and keep your happiness and productivity high!

“You are NOT stuck with who you think you are right now. Don’t believe everything you think – it’s probably not even your through.”

Recognize your honest truth (as hard and uncomfortable as that may be) and CHOOSE to see things differently and choose better thoughts.

“Your life will manifest around the things you think the most.”

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • How comparison, judgment, blame and numbing out are keeping you from doing what you want to do
  • Tips to replace the above practices
  • Why happiness is your TOP priority

“We are constantly chipping away at the things that will make us happy and productive in the long run – even when we don’t feel like it.”

“Our routine-driven life has absolutely 10x’d all areas of our lives.”

“I’m happier, healthier, wealthier and more fit than I was yesterday.”

“By taking inventory of all the good stuff in my life, I’m dictating the thoughts that will dictate my day instead of letting my day dictate my thoughts.”

162: You CAN'T or You WON'T...Tools to Help You REFRAME Your Thoughts
12:59

In light of the devastation that’s happening in Texas right now with Hurricane Harvey, I wanted to help in the best way I know how – and that’s through the reach of my amazing communities. As some of you may know, I’ve launched my FREE 14-Day Challenge (starts Sept. 5) and I’ve decided to link it to a donation to the Disaster Relief Fun for Houston.

Here’s how I would love for you to help… For every five people that sign up for the challenge, we will donate $1 – up to $20,000. To put this in perspective, our dream number to equal that would be 100,000.

The added bonus, you GET TO move your bodies for yourself – and for a cause. There’s nothing like getting a big dose of perspective when you realize that there are thousands and thousands of people right now who CAN’T go for a walk or play with their kids outside right now. We all have days where we don’t want to work out, but when you realize just how blessed we are to move our bodies, it definitely reframes it. And it’s not just fitness, it’s everything in life.

“We make time for the things that mean the most to us.”

Whether it’s working out, having coffee with a friend or doing extra work, take ownership of your thoughts and actions. Sometimes it’s a matter of getting really honest with yourself and switching the phrase, “I get to…” becomes “I have to…” Or instead of “I can’t…”, reframe it to “I won’t.” Pretty powerful, huh?

“The beautiful and harsh truths free us.”

Once you can acknowledge this, reframe and forgive yourself.

“Don’t beat yourself up for the things you enjoyed.”

Catch yourself, reframe, forgive and love yourself. Again, I would love if you would go right now to loriharder.com/challenge to join my FREE 14-Day Challenge. Not only will you be working out for YOU, but for thousands upon thousands of others who can’t right now. Thank you so much in advance for your help!

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • How you can help the victims of Hurricane Harvey
  • Why it’s important to reframe your thoughts
  • How the truth frees us

160: Make Friends With Your FEAR
09:31

 

Fear. Yes, it’s one of my favorite topics and I often feel like I should talk about it more because it’s seriously something that’s there every day. Heck, it’s with us is most moments, am I right? But it’s in these moments where some of our biggest breakthroughs are made. It’s that something that you know you need, but you’re scared as hell to do it.

 

“What you are afraid of is a clear indication of the things you need to do.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Personally, one of the biggest breakthroughs for me came with the fear I had after making a significant investment in a course with Jack Canfield. My soul was kicking and screaming, nudging, okay, shoving me, toward it. Every fear that could possibly come up did and I almost bailed on my flight…but I didn’t. I joined an amazing group of people, some who were far more successful than me and realized that they had some of the exact same fears as me. What?! It gave me the power to question,

 

“If I can do this, what else can I do?”

 

Fear is just there to remind us of where we need to go. It lets us know what we’re capable of. It shows us how strong we are. It’s always there in some way, shape or form.

 

“I have fear present in my life at all times – I just have a great relationship with it.”

 

Without fear, life just doesn’t feel quite as exciting. After all, how would we ever appreciate what it feels like to accomplish our dreams without it? Hint: pretty lame.

 

So today, do fear a favor and say, “Thank you, fear. I don’t know what my life would be like without you.” 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why we need fear in our lives
  • How fear makes you aware of what you’re capable of and what direction to go
  • About the importance of trying new things despite any resistance or fear around it

158: Gain Your POWER By LETTING GO
10:23

As many of you know, I’m in the final days of writing my book (due this week) and the act of even doing this quickie podcast was painful. It’s not that I didn’t want to record a message for all of you, it’s just that I kept thinking about all the other things I should be doing. On top of that, I wanted to make sure I was delivering an impactful message to all of you.

I was so attached to how I was going to get there that I made it way more difficult than it needed to be. So, I took a deep breath, let go of that resistance and focused on what was at the forefront of my mind...and here I am!

“When you stop living in the resistance and actually just do the thing, it’s amazing what gets done.”

It was totally the same way before my workout today as well. Gah! Just do it already (and I did)! Anyone else? Resistance pops up everywhere, but it’s up to us to use it to our benefit. I’ve realized recently that I’ve had to let go of the idea that things should come to me in a certain form. When I have set expectations and thoughts that say it has to go one way, opportunities arrived to me in a very slow trickle. But once I surrendered and let go – BAM! Tedx Talk, my book, etc. And I know because I’ve fought to remain so open, much more is on the horizon.

“Surrender to life and watch things happen.”

I hope you join me for a short resistance-releasing exercise in this episode. Even 2-3 minutes of focus can turn things around for you. When you can create a space of surrender, you will make your decisions from a much more powerful, connected place. Are you ready? Trick question – do it anyway.

What feelings do you want? What can you let go of to get you to that place? What can the resistance you’re feeling offer you? I understand that this may make you feel a touch out of control, but be open and know you’re not letting go of the good things.

 

“You’re not losing control; you’re gaining your power back."

How much can you let go of today to gain that power back?

156: Do People Ever DISAPPOINT You
10:25

If you’re human (you all are, right?), you’ve likely had several dances with disappointment. And often those disappointments are because someone has let you down (or at least they’ve let your expectations down) at one time or another.

I know this may be difficult to hear, but the truth is that when you set expectations of others, you’re always going to be let down, and you’re never going to see the good in that person. So how do you get around this?

A recent realization I’ve made is that each person is meant to play a particular role. For example, maybe your friend, Sally, is hilarious, but she always bails on your get-togethers. But then you have another friend, who always has your back and can hold space for you when you’re upset. See how they both fulfill different roles in your life?

“Let people show up in the roles that they are best at.”

Once you realize that all friends don’t have to be ALL things you can free yourself and enjoy ALL of your relationships. Let go of your expectations!

Have you ever connected with someone only to never hear from them again? Of course you question why that is (was it something I said?), but most times it has nothing to do with you! Sometimes it’s just too much pressure for that person and they don’t want to let you down.

Go into all relationships with ZERO expectations. Don’t hold them to anything and just let them be their authentic selves.

“Release them. Free them. Free yourself.”

Instead of expecting, allow yourself to surprised. We all like a good surprise, right?

In This Episode You Will Learn:

• Why expectations lead to disappointment

• The importance of figuring out the role that different people play in your life

• How to let go of expectations

• Why having zero expectations in any relationship makes it easier

155: How To Trust YOURSELF with Rebecca Campbell
56:04

Subscribe to Earn Your Happy on iTunes.

If you feel the need or calling to spend more time and connect with your soul, today’s heart-warming conversation with author and soulful teacher, Rebecca Campbell, is just the ticket. With an early fascination around the world of spirituality, souls and past lives, Rebecca had always felt a little “weird.” Not because she enjoyed these things, but because others were uncomfortable with it. And so from that young age, she seemingly led a double life – one that was “normal” with her school-aged friends and the other with a group of older, wise women who taught her about the healing arts and the power of intuitive arts. Rebecca always knew she wanted to create (writing, designing etc.), so following that path, she pursued the “normal” career in advertising. She had a very successful career as a creative director, but after experiencing a great period of loss, Rebecca knew she wanted to do more with all those little “soul whispers” that tugged at her heart. With the pipes and structures literally crumbling around her and navigating through her grief, Rebecca began to finally answer this calling and began to write what soon became her first book, Light Is the New Black, followed by Rise Sister Rise. She is grateful for all the life events that led her to where she is today and truly believes that this is the exact path she was meant to take. It is her hope that her story encourages you all to follow the “different path” if you feel so called – even if it happens in baby steps to reach your goals.

“The dots always join in the end and nothing is ever wasted.” --

Questions Asked in This Episode

• How did you get in touch with your inner wild woman to be who you are now? • Did you have to reframe while you were going through that journey? • What did surrendering to your soul look like? • Is there a way to answer the soul’s calling without hitting rock-bottom? • What do you say to someone who doesn’t know who they are? • How do you feel about women and sisterhood, and why is it important? • What do you when you feel like you’ve been put in a box as a “good girl?” • What has been the toughest thing you’ve had to let go of in order to step into your authentic self?

In This Episode You Will Learn:

• About the importance of listening to your head vs. your heart

• How to develop a devotional and spiritual practice

• How to surrender to your soul’s calling

• Why you need to listen to your “soul whispers” and the importance of connecting to them

• The commonalities between the seasons of life and nature

• About doing work with other women in sync with monthly cycles

• The importance of ancestral roots and why you must trust your own power/intuition

• Why you don’t have to be a “good girl”

• And so much more…

Quotes:

“Often our soul’s calling is scary, but it was more uncomfortable and scary to stay where I was than it was to throw my life up in the air.”

“Sometimes rock-bottom moments are beautiful opportunities to just do it.”

“Alright, soul, you’re running the shop now.”

“The voice of our soul/intuition is the part of us that is linked to the entire universe.”

“Follow what lights you up.”

“When we’re inspired, when we’re lit up, we’re in our spirit and in that rhythmic flow and in that surrendered space.”

“When we connect in with our spirit, then we don’t have to work out every step of the way – we just have to move our feet.”

“In order for something to rise within us, something needs to fall away to clear that space.”

“When things are blooming, it’s just as good as when the leaves are falling.”

“If we’re trying to fit in a box, the people who ARE your people won’t be able to see you.” “Trust the wisdom of your soul.”

154: Be A Gossip KILLER
12:44

Getting 100% real with you today as I discovered that I was the recent object of someone’s gossip. Doesn’t the word alone just give you an icky feeling? Ugh, me too. And it made me want to gossip right back (which would have made me feel worse), but I didn’t.

It’s our first reaction when someone says something bad about ourselves or someone else, but it never leads to anything productive. So instead, I talked it over with my husband. Because I knew I was in a safe zone to express my feelings and talk things through, I was able to determine that I didn’t need to worry about what this person chose to say about me. I was able to let it go.

Now, this isn’t always the case, but because I’m not close with this person I knew there was nothing I could do that would change anything about the situation. And perhaps they didn’t even mean what they said in a bad way.

If, however, this was a close relationship I would have more than likely confronted this person if I wanted the relationship to remain intact.

“Gossip blocks your blessings.”

Words carry so much energy – both positive and negative – so don’t spend those precious words tearing someone else apart when you likely don’t know the full story.

“Words are either life-giving or death-giving.”

If you’re around gossip, “be the person who gossip dies with.” And if you find yourself around those who tend to gossip, realize it’s only a matter of time before you’re the subject of his or her talks. It’s up to YOU to take the high road.

“Be a gossip killer.”

Be the person who expresses their feelings and talks things out instead of building a wall or speaking untruths about others. Be the person who others can talk to and know that your words are safe with them.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why gossip might be holding you back
  • How to deal with someone who gossips about you
  • The importance of talking something through and coming to a peaceful conclusion
  • Why it’s important to find that “safe zone” when talking things through

153: Hacks for a Better Body, Sharper Brain, and More Willpower with Dave Asprey - Founder of Bulletproof Coffee
01:02:40

I know you are all going to love today’s guest, Dave Asprey. Not only will you be in awe of his transformation story, but he shares so many useful tips and tools to help you gain more energy AND boost both the health of your mind and body.

A successful Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur and the founder of Bulletproof Coffee, Dave once weighed 300 lbs. and even though he spent 1.5 hours at the gym daily and ate a super low-calorie diet, he couldn’t budge the scale. He felt old in his young body. It wasn’t until he decided to cut sugar from his diet (and inadvertently lower his carb intake) that he lost 50 lbs. It took him another 7-8 years while biohacking and figuring out his body to lose the other 50.

Since that time and with an innate sense of curiosity, Dave has discovered and created techniques, and keys to taking control of and improving a person’s biochemistry, body and mind so they work in unison, helping one execute at levels far beyond what is expected without burning out, getting sick, or allowing stress to control decisions.

I learned and related to so much of this amazingly educational conversation and I hope you do as well. Dave’s determination and drive to discover more and more about the human body is so inspiring. I’m giddy just thinking about where his work will take us in the years to come.

Happy Listening!

152: How to Know What Is Actually Making You Happy
09:24

Do you ever wake up and feel like you’ve just experienced spiritual amnesia? You know, when you take classes, listen to podcasts or do something else that lights your soul on fire only to wake up the next morning feeling…not so soulful, barely recognizing who you were the day before.

 

I’m here to tell you that this is normal. As one of my favorite quotes says:

 

“Every day is day one.”

 

It’s one of my favorites because it’s so true. You change on a daily basis and what happened yesterday has no bearing on today. So what made you happy yesterday, doesn’t necessarily make you happy today. And many days you won’t even know who you are…red flag!

 

“If you’ve forgotten who you are, you may want to reassess.”

 

Ask yourself, “what’s working for me. What’s not?” Are you continuing to do something because you think you should or because you think you’re going to get a certain result? Sometimes we’re so caught up in what we should do that we forget what we enjoy doing.

 

To ensure that I stay in this constant state of evaluation and questioning (and happiness), it’s imperative that I pray, meditate and get grateful (this is often only 5-6 minutes a day).

 

“Do the thing that makes you find peace.”

 

Get present, become aware and make time for what truly makes you happy – regardless of what’s happening that day (crazy work day, family visiting, running kids all over town). Play your favorite music that helps you get in flow. Drink that favorite cup of coffee even if you only have five minutes to have a few sips in a locked bathroom. ;-) You will find that every little bit helps to make this experience of life just a little more joyful.

 

What keeps you joyful and in the present?

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • How to figure out what’s not working in your life
  • How to get present
  • Why having daily rituals are so important
  • How to make life more enjoyable

Time to get comfortable, take your pants off (be sure to tune in to get this reference) and get ready to listen as I talk with two best friends (and podcasters), Lindsey Simcik and Krista Williams, who you will soon feel like yours too.

With Lindsey originally from the East Coast and Krista from the Midwest, life brought them both out to California by way of New York. They met a couple years ago when a mutual friend suggested that Krista reach out to Lindsey for advice on auditioning for SoulCycle. They immediately clicked and felt that there would be an even bigger connection later on. They were right! Even though Krista didn’t become a SoulCycle instructor, she and Lindsey did create the hilarious and tell-it-like-it-is podcast, Almost 30. During this podcast, they share the life transitions they’re going through in real-time, where they’ve been and what tools they’ve used to help them get there – all while keeping it authentic to who they are and with a lot of laughs. I hope you love listening to these ladies as much as I did and that it encourages you to find those people who get you and allow you to be unapologetically who you are.

  • How do you allow yourself to show up and create a safe space for other people?
  • When do you feel most free – most yourself?
  • How do you set massive goals but detach from the outcome and remain present?

  • Why imperfect is better than perfect
  • Starting a podcast
  • Why self-love and forgiveness is crucial in the creative process
  • About balancing personalities, responsibilities and tasks when in a business partnership

“Just because it’s not perfect doesn’t mean I shouldn’t put it out there.” – Lindsey

“There isn’t a better feeling than knowing people accept you for who you are.” – Krista

“I’m most free when I’m not focused on the end result.” – Lindsey

“If you’re wanting what someone else has, then you’re not being grateful for what you have.” – Krista

150: Using the RIGHT Thoughts to FUEL Your Emotions
12:24

Penny for your thoughts? What have you been thinking in the last week or so? List the top three feelings you’ve felt, keeping in mind it could be a combination and vary by the hour! ;) That’s how I’ve felt lately anyway.

“How you feel is how you view the world around you.”

Let’s say you’re happy. When you have a hectic day, you don’t get angry, you choose gratitude and feel blessed to be so busy. If you’re anxious or feeling angry, you can likely guess that ANYTHING will set you off (why are they chew SO LOUDLY?) and things don’t look as rosy.

Emotions don’t just appear; they need our thoughts to fuel them. So if you’re pouring gasoline on a fire, you’re going to get bigger flames or an explosion. Same with your thoughts. If your thoughts are literally raging, your emotion (and actions for that matter) will follow suit.

So how can control this whiplash of emotions on a day-to-day basis? First off, take a minute and reflect: What emotions am I feeling? Then, what are the thoughts that are fueling that emotion? Once you’ve figured that out, INSERT NEW THOUGHT(S).

Recently, I’ve had to use this reframing practice along with a little help from a mastermind friend who steered me in the right direction. I wanted to hold onto that feeling of overwhelm – book, travel, programs etc. – and darn it, I wanted to be validated for it. My lovely friend, Lindsay, wasn’t going to give me an inch though. Instead, she encouraged me to “find presence in the busier schedule.”

“Don’t rob other experiences because of one emotion.”

So since then, I’ve been super mindful of these overwhelming thoughts. And I’ve used a special piece of jewelry to keep me aware and remind me to SLOW DOWN and get in the present when those feelings come creeping back. And I encourage you to do the same.

“Make your world instead of destroying it with your thoughts.”

Is it hard? Heck yes! It does NOT always feel awesome, but we must choose to get out of victim mode. Think the most peaceful, loving thoughts, forgive for the other thoughts and move on.

In This Episode You Will Hear About:

  • About the link between our thoughts and emotions
  • How choosing new thoughts can help you
  • About the importance of keeping your thoughts in the present
  • Why being aware of your thoughts is so important

149: How To Slow Down Time with Drew Canole
38:49

I’m so excited for you to listen and get to know green juice junkie (and so much more), Drew Canole. We could have talked for hours! He’s so connected and open with his spirituality that I felt like I was talking to a long-lost friend. Seriously, we’re both from Michigan (now in California), we’re experienced snowmobile drivers and we both take guitar lessons! And our journeys are quite similar as well. Drew had always been into fitness, but after consistently working out two or more hours a day he wasn’t getting the results/body he wanted. He soon realized it was likely the food he was putting into his body (Michigan diet = burgers, pizza and Hamburger Helper).

So it was six and half years ago, after a friend suggested that Drew try a green juice, that he decided to eliminate the junk/processed foods and also drink “copious amounts” of green juice for seven days. Loving the effects, he decided to continue on for 90 days while incorporating intermittent fasting and also documenting his journey on YouTube. He lost 40 pounds! And while his physical appearance was amazing, what’s more is that he FELT so much better. He had more energy, he felt more creative, productive and experienced more clarity in his life. Drew felt in tune with his most authentic self.

“When you get in that flow state, that energy, it radically shifts your viewpoint of every human being.”

After all, when you’re in this state, there’s no time for lack or scarcity – you just see abundance. Realizing that for some, it’s difficult to get to this state, Drew explains that adjusting your nutrition is the perfect hack to reaching this when your mindset hasn’t quite reached this point. He offers the following tips to get started on your own transformation:

  • Get quality sleep. Dial in on what kind of sleep you need and what you’re actually getting – and tweak. Drew uses the app Beddit to track his sleep.
  • Drink A LOT of water.
  • Drink green juice. This is optional, but Drew feels it’s so helpful when trying to retrain your tastebuds.
  • Set a goal. Figure out your “Why-Dentity” or your “why that makes you cry.” Along with this, it’s recognizing what you want to hear from the people you love and what YOU want to see in the mirror. This often creates more of a reality for you. It’s a combination of feeling what you want to and SEEING it as well. Even further, boost your success rate by finding someone to team up with as well.

Developing certain daily rituals or daily practices are also an important key to your success. It’s what grounds us and keeps us in that state of flow. Personally, I know when my sleep isn’t quality or I’m not moving my body, my creativity and motivation comes to a halt. The same goes for Drew. Below are some of his important morning visualization/meditation practices.

  1. Wake up and get grateful. Go through a list in your head or write out what you’re grateful for.
  2. Visualization/Meditation for 10 minutes or more if time allows. He uses a Japanese-style meditation that focuses on breathing.
  3. Email/text three people you care about. Show appreciation to people you care for, but haven’t reached out to in a while – just to show your love.
  4. Coffee (usually some beneficial supplements) and then off to the gym (about 1.25 hours). Sometimes swimming.
  5. Spiritual work/reading.
  6. Shower
  7. 9 a.m. daily work touch-base meeting

Now, I get it… So often a person doesn’t feel like they have the time to build in such rituals. But we both Drew and I believe you can. If you constantly think you don’t have time, guess what? That’s how it’s always going to feel. Drew himself believes that time is just an illusion. He likes to view all time as “the unfoldment of good.” He likes to frame it as constantly being in a state of bliss – tracking how much good can be done in ONE moment. When you’re in this place, time is no longer a question. Instead it seems to expand exponentially.

“The universe is like water and wants to get out of your way when you know where you’re going.”

When time (and life) is approached this way, people and opportunities are magnetically drawn to you. So take time to focus on the times you feel stress or like you have no time. Take a time out. Breathe in and as Drew suggests, “breathe out with a smile.” Notice how much lighter you feel after.

“Time slows down when you’re living in the moment.”

With this approach, it’s no wonder that Drew has attracted 80+ team members to join his team. Ideal boss alert! He encourages people to explore their spiritual gifts daily whether it’s reading a new book a week as a company or attending his team’s daily 9 a.m. meeting. He also ensures that he’s connected and creating a healthy work environment. When it comes to staying personally grounded and connected, Drew finds writing therapeutic as well as frequent spa treatments (acupuncture, cryo-saunas etc.). But it’s also been about is overall vision for his life. When he began to see that what he does every single day makes a difference, he was able to bring that vision to life. Drew wants everyone to know that a person’s vision for what they want to create in their lives is so huge and it CAN be created.

“It’s the consistent action, every single day, that’s going to be the guiding light in your life.”

How’s that for motivation? What actions could you take to today to make your vision a reality? As always I would love to hear! -- Drew Canole is a rockstar in the world of fitness, nutrition and mindset, with a huge heart for others and doing his part to transform the world, one person at a time. Drew is the founder and CEO of FitLife.TV, an online health and wellness media channel where he shares educational, inspirational and entertaining videos and articles about health, fitness and healing and longevity.

148: What Are You Relying On To Be HAPPY
13:17

Are you happy right NOW in this moment? Or do you have certain contingencies that it hinges on? Are you waiting or relying on someone or something to make you happy? Whether it’s a spouse, best friend, job or goal are you depending on something other than yourself to FINALLY bring you happiness? Here’s where that gets a little tricky…

“Happiness is a choice in each moment.”

We must understand that the “thing” you’re waiting on is NOT going to make you any happier in the long term than you are right now in this moment. And that’s why happiness can be a little sticky at times. If you are relying on anyone other than yourself, your happiness level will average out to be where you are now until you decide to be happy all the time. OK, I’m realistic. I don’t expect you to be happy ALL the time. If something bad happens, feel those feelings, but don’t let them hang around too long. Often it’s as simple as waking up and CHOOSING the mood you’re going to be in. It’s all about adjusting your “default mood.” Sure, there may be some things in your life right now that plain suck. But you know what? That doesn’t mean YOUR LIFE sucks!

“Start becoming really grateful and experiencing deep gratitude for all the little things.”

If you’re looking for the good, you’ll find it. The same goes for the opposite. Instead of looking for what’s missing, look at what you do have. I still have times where I need to remind myself to get in the present and stop blaming others – unfortunately we blame those closest to us first (sorry, Chris!). And this is usually when my daily practices/rituals are off kilter (not meditating, not enough sleep etc.). Most importantly, if you find that you’re relying (blaming) on someone/something to be complete, don’t judge yourself too harshly. Recognize it and forgive quickly – you’re human! So what is it that YOU desire? What could you shift your thoughts to right now and get really grateful for? I promise that when you can step into gratitude and learn lessons along the way, the happiness will follow (and so many other great things).

“Your happiness is what attracts amazing people and things.”

In This Episode You Will Hear About:

  • Why happiness is a choice
  • The importance of daily rituals/practices
  • The Law of attraction
  • Tribe

147: Following Your Dreams, Growing Your Passion, Product Launches and Webinars with Melyssa Griffin
01:00:49

Subscribe to Earn Your Happy on iTunes.

Four years ago, teaching English in Japan, Melyssa Griffin decided to start a blog to connect with more people. She soon realized, however, that this blog was becoming less of a hobby and more of something she felt called to monetize and turn into a career. She left teaching and decided to offer web design services. After a couple of years, she had created a profitable business, but she still felt a touch restless… she still felt the pull to teach and do more with MORE people.

Melyssa decided to return to teaching, but this time in a different realm. She now teaches online workshops and courses to those who want to start their own business. And one of the things she’s most passionate about is managing the online communities that go along with them.

Community has always been an important and intriguing part of Melyssa’s life and I love that she had the opportunity to compare Japanese culture/community with American culture. While she found that Japanese culture, in general, tended to be more reserved (opinions and personalities) there was still a sense of community. It was a concept that wasn’t questioned – it just was. Originally from California, Melyssa found that while the culture varied (more outgoing, more flexibility), there was one universal truth. It became clear one day as she watched a Japanese man and his child play in the park. She noticed that even though she couldn’t understand what they were saying, she could still understand the “conversation” through their body language, intonation and facial expressions. It was a deeper human connection that we ALL have.

“We all have this intimate connection that we all have to each other that has nothing to do with the languages we speak.”

With a focus on this connection and sense of community, Melyssa went on to open and close several businesses – a greeting card shop, a web design shop and blogging. While one could have felt a sense of failure around the ups and downs of these businesses, it was through this process that Melyssa made a huge realization.

“Maybe the fun of it is knowing that it will change in the future and that means you’re still growing and learning new things.”

I couldn’t agree more, and I full-heartedly believe that if you’re not changing, you’re not growing – even if that means failing full force along the way. After all, when things are uncertain you might as well explore new things, am I right? Similarly, Melyssa encourages hopeful entrepreneurs to do the same.

“Move in the direction of what feels good. Don’t overanalyze it. Don’t try to calculate it. If something stops feeling good and you know that something is going to feel better, do that and start moving in that direction.”

Melyssa hasn’t always had such a great relationship with failure. Like many, she was raised to believe that she needed to be successful and wealthy. And admittedly, those are ALL great things, but it also implied that failure wasn’t an option. Today, she’s undone most of these beliefs, but she often has to consciously spin the negatives into a positive light.

“Failure is either going to lead you in a direction to something you will enjoy or that will turn out well, or you’re going to learn something massive from that failure and that will lead to something else that’s going to be that next step for you.”

So this is all good and great, but now you may be wondering how you actually even begin to turn your passion into a career you love? For many, there’s the common excuse of not having enough time. While both Melyssa and I agree that this is often the case, we also know that there are tiny spaces of time and small sacrifices you can make to just start. Melyssa suggests to start super small, but get super clear on how and who you want to serve. From there, begin by sharing your knowledge for free. This can lead to collaborations with other entrepreneurs – and you’ll be getting your stuff out there! More tips on getting your business out there

  • Get on Pinterest. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not a social media platform. It’s a search engine for a whole lot more than DIY projects.
  • Do video in some form – podcasts, IG stories. This provides a way to deeper connect with your audience on a personal level.
  • Webinars. Once thought of as more of a “fancy” sales pitch with little value, Melyssa advises to make it valuable. Offer 30-40 minutes of quality training and THEN offer to expand on the training with your product. If you’re looking to grow your audience (and email lists) and make sales – this is a two-for-one deal.

“The more you can have your audience know you, the more you’re able to grow your business and affect people.”

One tip from Melyssa… Don’t get bogged down with the thought that it’s all been done before. Yes, it probably has, but not by YOU! When people follow you, they’ll LOVE all facets of who you are. And they’ll love your story and where you’re coming from.

“We need more voices because we need people who can deeply connect to each type of person out there.”

Of course, you’ll always have those that don’t resonate with you, but guess what? It’s OK! They’ll just find someone else who does, and you will allow room for another to follow you. But what if you get someone who just can’t keep their thoughts or dislike for your message to themselves? Although difficult and sometimes hurtful, Melyssa suggests taking a day to process what’s been said if you need to while keeping the following thought in mind:

“Happy, secure people don’t go out of their way to hurt other people.”

With this in mind, assume that all people are good. That way when you’re ready, you can respond in the most loving way possible without judgment or anger. I love that Melyssa stresses the importance of coming from a place of love and community in all that you do. If your intent is to create a business that can grow, be sure to focus on Melyssa’s three Cs – Connection, Content and Collaboration. Focus on who you can serve and what valuable content you can provide and the community will follow. -- Melyssa Griffin teaches online courses and live workshops for entrepreneurs and bloggers who want to turn their after-work hobbies into full-time businesses. A few of her specialties include list-building, webinars, using Pinterest to get organic traffic, and content marketing. She also leads an active Facebook group of 60,000 members and helps almost 150,000 entrepreneurs with her weekly emails. But most importantly, she's the mom to one wacky corgi, an expert at laughing, and a green smoothie aficionado.

146: Why PLAY is PRODUCTIVE
12:18

Just a couple days ago on the 4th of July, I was able to take a WHOLE day just for PLAY with friends – no writing, no meetings, no worries – celebrating America’s birthday. And while initially I felt as though it may stress me out more (I am on a book deadline), I couldn’t have been MORE wrong.

Today I feel energized, more creative and honestly like I just drank about 10 straight shots of espresso (OK, let’s not get too crazy). I realized that the play is actually equally as (if not more) important as the writing, creating programs, podcasts etc.

“The play IS the work.”

It can be a bit confusing at first because while you’re “playing,” it doesn’t feel as though you’re being productive. But I assure you, you are! It’s especially beneficial when you feel as though you’ve hit a creativity rut.

“The play is productive. The play is important. The play is creative. The play is freedom. The play is expansion. The play is real connection.”

After you’ve taken the time, you’re able to come back with a fresh perspective – new eyes. Ideas abound and the world just seems…better. Am I right?

“Personally, when I play and try new things, I have so much more to say.”

Anyone else? You’re always up-to-date and relevant because you’re constantly thinking of new things and connecting. What would it look like for you to plan some sort of play into every week? Please share – I would love to hear all about it!

In This Episode You Will Hear About:

  • Adding more play into your week
  • Ridding yourself of creativity blocks
  • Finding fresh perspective
  • Connection

145: Social Media Strategies with an Accidental Entrepreneur with Jasmine Star
56:05

Upon listening to my recent conversation with my guest, photographer and business strategist, Jasmine Star, it will become quite apparent why I felt as though we could have continued to talk for hours more. Her story (so far) will have you hooked and feeling the serendipitous pull of it (not to mention all the social media strategy knowledge she drops here). In 2005, Jasmine walked away from a scholarship to UCLA law school to follow her heart. The path led straight to her mother's bedside as she battled brain cancer for the second time. Wanting to be at her side as she fought, she dropped out of law school (fully intending at the time to go back). Praying for her mom to be able to walk her down the aisle at her wedding to her high school sweetheart, she planned a wedding in three months to ensure that this hope became a reality.

Against all odds, both her mother and father were able to escort Jasmine down the aisle on a sandy beach in Hawaii. Shortly after, wedded bliss faded into the reality and she discovered she was jobless, broken, and desperate to follow her mom's earlier instructions of doing something she loved.

On a beach, barely a tan line on his ring finger, Jasmine confessed to her husband that she didn’t want to be a lawyer, she wanted to be a photographer. With no experience or a camera for that matter, Jasmine’s husband supported her decision. That Christmas he gifted her a camera and the permission to pursue her passion. Though not extraordinarily talented at the time, she tapped into her self-awareness, slowly building a brand and community, marketing her services, and transforming from a “doubtful photographer to a savvy entrepreneur.” Four years later, she was voted one of the top photographers in the world.

“As a byproduct of pushing through and consistently ending up on the other side, other entrepreneurs, quiet observers, are paying close attention to what you’re doing. They develop an allegiance not for the perfection, but for the sheer will to succeed.”

Amazing, right? Interview over. Kidding. I wanted to dig deeper and see just how Jasmine is able to teach her programs, keep up with her own social media AND stay inspired. The first tip Jasmine offers is that you can’t just sit around and wait for creativity to hit you like a bolt of lightning (you’ll be waiting awhile…). ;) She feels that she’s most creative and inspired when she’s working through something. Whether she’s unhappy or looking but not finding a solution – those are the moments when things tend to fall into place without evening knowing it’s happening.

“Inspiration is like a small drop, and all of a sudden you realize the bucket is filling – and that’s when you shift.”

So once you’ve locked in your passion, how do you attract your audience? Jasmine likes to create her “ideal” client by asking roughly 20-30 questions. Really tune into WHO you want to serve. Once you’ve figured that out (and this can take some trial and error), you can create content that’s specific to those followers. Jasmine often uses her own social media accounts to help her fill in gaps with her content. Keep in mind that when people comment on your posts, they often are telling you what problems they need help with. Wait now… Jasmine still monitors her own social media accounts? Yep. While she does have a small team to help, she feels it is super important for her to manage her accounts so she’s able to keep a pulse on her followers. While some struggle with the tremendous discipline and time management skills this requires, Jasmine thrives. Many days, her time is planned down to the minute. For example, her marketing is roughly planned out at 10 hours per week. That’s broken down into 600 minutes… and 20 minute increments from there (IG, FB, FB groups, hashtag follow-ups, plus an hour of research a day to keep up on algorithms and trends).

“We always have these high aspirations, but if we’re not clear on our trajectory, there’s a good chance we’re going to miss the mark.”

Jasmine also encourages entrepreneurs to add to this by making it a point to understand their audiences and bring more of themselves. If your audience likes long posts, write them, but know that unless engagement is high, the algorithms will suppress views (IG and Jasmine prefer shorter posts about 86-112 characters). Get real with your audience. Selfies do very well as do stories about your personal background. Show your workspace…let people get to see the REAL you!

“People want to see the simplicity and the grandeur.”

Lastly, Jasmine advises that it’s not all about you. Nobody watches TV, listens to the radio or surfs social media to see commercials, so don’t make all of your posts about your products or services. Instead of focusing all of your attention on selling your product or service, you must first build your followers’ trust.

“The more you show up and the more you build trust by providing valuable content, the better off you’ll be and the faster you’ll transfer them to customers.”

At the end of the day, Jasmine stresses the importance of people knowing that “you see them, you hear them and that you want to know them.” Make sure your brand is more than a website, product or business… Make your brand an experience for your customers. With a successful and ever-growing business, I think this is the perfect advice. For more tips, be sure to follow Jasmine at the links below.

144: To Feel SUPPORTED, SUPPORT YOURSELF First
11:39

Subscribe to Earn Your Happy on iTunes.

Do you feel supported by family, friends, co-workers etc.? If not, we must realize that this support will not magically appear on its own. In order to receive this support, we must first support ourselves – unconditionally.

There was a stretch of time when I felt that I didn’t have any true friends... I didn’t want to drink, party all night only to feel like crap the next day, but all my friends at the time did. I wanted to be healthy and fit, but my friends chose Thirsty Thursday over healthier options. Of course, thinking I had NO other options, I followed along and my dreams continued to take the backseat. But here’s the thing, it wasn’t their fault. It was me who wasn’t willing to put myself first. I wasn’t willing to let go of those short-term pleasures. I wasn’t ready to support myself and get out of my own way. It was time to step into my fear and CHOOSE to become the person I truly wanted to be.

So I chose to start supporting myself. I had to find things, even if it meant on my own, that would help me reach my goals and practice saying no to the things that wouldn’t. For me, the most pressing need when I started this journey was my health. I gradually started making the choice to not go out and drink myself into oblivion. And it wasn’t until I did that, that I could start pursuing my fitness goals/career. What’s your most pressing need right now? What would make you feel BETTER? To get more rest, to eat better, exercise more or change your circle of friends? Full honesty… It isn’t easy.

“But if you don’t start choosing to support yourself, you have to get comfortable with the idea that you’re never going to change.”

You must ask yourself if you’re OK waking up in five years and being in the same place. If nothing changes, nothing changes. It’s scary, but you’re the only one who can do it.

“You can either choose complete suppression or face your fear.”

Face that fear TODAY! What are some ways you can support yourself RIGHT now? Is it time-blocking your calendar to fit in 20 minutes of exercise? Is it scheduling dance or music lessons? Is it reaching out to someone to be your mentor? It doesn’t matter how big or small your acts are as long as you’re ACTING. Failure is a given, but if we choose to focus on the blessing rather than each individual failure we’ll fail faster into better success.

In This Episode You Will Hear About:

  • Supporting yourself to feel better
  • Facing your fears
  • Spirit Junkie Masterclass

143: How to STAND OUT and MAKE AN IMPACT Doing What You LOVE with Gabby Bernstein
40:51

I’m always so excited to have today’s guest, Gabrielle Bernstein, on Earn Your Happy, but today is even more exciting because we’re talking about her Spirit Junkie Digital Master Class – the class that undeniably took my business (and life) to a whole new level.

So often when people have a pull to do something “more”, they automatically respond with, “Who am I to do this?” But really the question that should be asked is, “Who am I NOT to do this?” To nip these thoughts in the bud, one of Gabrielle’s foundational components, trains you in confidence. It’s your time to rise up and the only way to build that confidence is to practice clearing the fear and blocks from your path. One fear that comes up often is unapologetically making money while remaining spiritual.

“Earning for our great work is also a great opportunity to invest in our well-being so that we can continue to do the work we’re here to do.”

In Gabrielle’s teachings, she’s crafted her program to be equal parts spiritual and business growth and business training. She hopes to bust the myth that you can’t make money AND be spiritual at the same time.

“We have to do the spiritual work to clear the belief systems that hold us back from our earning capacity and hold us back from stepping into our light.”

Honestly, I understand this 100% because I, like many of you, was in this same position not that long ago. And it wasn’t until I shifted my way of thinking (with the help of Gabrielle’s Spirit Junkie Master Class) that my business and life catapulted to places I’d only dreamed. I was ecstatic about all the things that seemed possible to me. New opportunities were appearing, left and right!

“Change the way you perceive abundance, then abundance can flow.”

I cannot tell you how TRUE this statement is.

“When you’re in alignment with inspiration, joy, excitement and enthusiasm, you become a magnet for opportunities.”

So maybe you have the ideas, but you’re afraid that it’s already been done before. You’re right, it probably has. But that doesn’t mean the world doesn’t need more inspiration from people like you!

“There are far more people in need of that inspiration than there are people doing it.”

Just make sure that the work you’re doing lights you up from the inside out. If you’re excited about creating your content, trust and know that other people will get excited about it too. The Spirit Junkie Master Class helps you connect with the spiritual side of this process while also allowing you to get laser-focused and successful with the business component. Make sure your energy is aligned with your inspiration.

“Your most valuable currency is energy. If your energy isn’t clear, joyful and inspirational, then you won’t be a magnet for more of that.”

If you’re feeling like you have a message and you want to be unapologetic about sharing that message with the world, I highly recommend joining the Spirit Junkie Digital Master Class tribe. See the resources below to sign up and to receive a very special bonus offer from me. I could not be more grateful for Gabrielle and this course as it pushed me to the edge. She gave me richness and deep roots that gave way to the freedom to take my business to new and different places. I cannot wait to hear about the shifts YOU make because of this course as well…

  • Spirit Junkie Digital Master Class
  • Authenticity

  • How to clear blocks and fears

142: Use Your FAILURE to REINVENT YOURSELF with Danielle LaPorte
50:41

To say I was honored to have a one-on-one conversation with Danielle LaPorte is an understatement. I recently just finished her newest book, White Hot Truth, and it was just what I needed to access my freedom in writing my own book. Talking with her took it to a whole other level. 

For those of you who don’t know who Danielle is, she’s an author, speaker, a poet, a painter, and a former business strategist and Washington-DC think tank exec. She is also an invited member of Oprah’s SuperSoul 100, a group who, in Oprah Winfrey’s words, “is uniquely connecting the world together with a spiritual energy that matters.” In addition to her recent book, she’s also the author of The Fire Starter Sessions, and The Desire Map: A Guide To Creating Goals With Soul – this book also evolved into a yearly day planner system, a top 10 iTunes app, and an international workshop program. You’ve also likely seen her #truthbombs on social media.

At a glance, like many other successful people, one would not believe the career hurdles she’s overcome so far in her life. Very early on, Danielle remembers always having an entrepreneurial spirit. She was the girl running the lemonade stand and intuitively finding other opportunities to make money. Danielle once thought she would be a fashion designer, but she changed directions when she realized she got headaches every time she went to sew. From there, she began helping friends and naturally fell into being a publicist. This eventually led to the creation of her own communications agency – landing gigs in Washington D.C. pitching and selling white papers to the Pentagon. This in and of itself is an amazing accomplishment as she never went to college and is from Canada. When her work in D.C. was complete, Danielle went on to start a consultancy for soulful personal branding, which led to her first book, Style Statement: Live by Your Own Design. It got the attention of Oprah and she received a lot of media and investment interest from that. That small consultancy incorporated and soon after she was fired. While none of this made her feel great, she believes that,

“All the worst things have turned out to be my best things.”

True to her words, Danielle went on to coach entrepreneurs, author the above listed books and hasn’t looked back since. While some would let all these different events knock them down, she persevered by focusing on the reason she’s here. She unquestionably knows her why and she knows what her talents are. Danielle goes on to say, “Life happens. You tried your best and it didn’t work out…You just have to keep showing up.” Danielle also adds that you must take the time to grieve these hard times.

“When you don’t win, you need to stop, you need to cry and recover, and feel the sting and how you feel about what just happened.”

Life is hard. So just take that breather – but then come back – ready to work.

“If you’re going to be brighter and sexier and smarter and more feminine and more innovative and more progressive than the status-f*cking-quo, you’re in for a fight.”

There will always be losses, but you need to know that you walk away knowing more. You’re better. And you’re actually more yourself because of it. I love that Danielle phrases it as,

“Sometimes you need to be lost to be found.”

This is SO true. We need to go through the highs and the lows – and learn from them. And sometimes this means setting boundaries. This is easier said than done as a woman though – and not because we’re too emotional. Danielle explains that as women, we naturally want to merge and connect with people… We want to nourish and heal. We don’t want to be “mean,” and we don’t want to be a push-over either. Being tolerant can be a good thing, but being “excessively tolerant” = almost no boundaries. Danielle doesn’t expect you to do this all on your own. You need someone else to objectively tell you when your boundaries are being taken advantage of.

She goes to say that once you’ve put up that “fence” to keep those people out, you’ll find that no one died. You didn’t kill anyone. And you feel just a little big lighter. Recently, there has been some stress in Danielle’s business where she’s had to use some of the above practices. It’s comforting to know that no matter where you’re at, we all experience resistance in our lives. While she takes time to “walk in circles” and wrap her head around the problem, she also makes a point to view disappointing events in a positive light.

“I always take failure as an opportunity to reinvent.”

Danielle tells us to use these opportunities to question EVERYTHING (no, really – everything). Even through these less than ideal times for her business right now, the powerful message of her recent book, White Hot Truth, is a success. It was Danielle’s hope that people experience the book and feel relieved (mission accomplished with me). Since finishing her book, Danielle herself has more compassion for herself and for others. And she hopes that others will feel the same and then some – more self-love and self-respect, too. And once you do, Danielle encourages you to, “Get off your butt and do something – make the world a better place. The world needs YOU.”

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Overcoming resistance
  • Creativity
  • Parenting and Love
  • Going against the status quo

141: The ONE Variable That's Keeping YOU From An EXCITING LIFE
10:32

Do you feel like you’re living every day like it’s Groundhog’s Day? You know, same thoughts, same people, same problems… Sounds like it’s time to switch things up and add some excitement back into your life. But to do that we need to bust through fears and try new things. Of course, we can’t do that without first changing our thoughts.

To set the tone for the day, I highly recommend waking up and instantly repeating a positive mantra – either out loud or in your head. I know, I know… sounds a little cheesy, but I assure you, it works.

Every morning my husband and I say the following:

“I am happier, healthier, wealthier and more fit than I was yesterday.”

But that’s only the beginning of the day! Do small things throughout the day that keep the positivity and excitement going. Bear in mind that it doesn’t have to be anything HUGE.

“Life and enjoyment of life is made up of the very simple pleasures.”

Here are a few different things you could do:

  • Change your thoughts. Feel a negative thought creeping in? Stop it in its tracks with a more positive one. Be sure to do this throughout the day – not just in the morning.
  • Try different things. Go to a new coffee shop, try a different workout etc.
  • Ask different questions. Ask people BETTER questions: what’s good, new or exciting? What was your favorite part of today?
  • Read a book. Know a friend with a nose for good books? Ask them for their list.
  • Try different foods. Yes, please!
  • Go to a movie.

This list could go on and on… Also, be sure you’re expanding your network – both virtually and in person. Ask a new friend out for coffee or to meet at a new workout class. And since social media has a tendency to highlight more negative things, be sure use that “block” button freely and start following more uplifting people/pages. Personally, I know that I don’t want any seeds of negativity growing in my mind, because that’s exactly what my mind will hold on to. It is SO important for YOU to weed out any potentially negative vibes. “You are the variable. You are the only one who can change your outcome.” Doing the same thing will only ever get you (you guessed it) the SAME thing. And who wants that? Certainly not me and likely not you. “If you want a different day, you’ve got to start with different thoughts in the morning.” Now, go let those thoughts lead you to THE BEST day!

In This Episode You Will Hear About:

  • The importance of experiencing new things
  • Positivity
  • Changing your thoughts
  • Mantras

140: Have a MIRACLE MINDSET with JJ Virgin
35:43

One never knows what they’re going to do when tragedy hits, but JJ had to keep it together and learn fast after one of her son’s was the victim of a brutal hit-and-run accident. With 13 broken bones and an aortic tear, doctors knew he needed surgery, but they also warned he’d likely not survive the airlift to another hospital – much less the actual surgery. They gave him the heart-wrenching odds of a .25 percent survival rate. With that knowledge, JJ had a choice to make. Fortunately, the wisdom of her other son rang through as he asked the doctor, “Point-two-five isn’t zero, right?” Those words were just what JJ needed to make the choice to help her son FIGHT for survival. After a successful airlift and surgery, JJ’s son survived, but because of the trauma was in a coma. It was a daunting road ahead, but JJ start asking herself the “right” questions. It wasn’t “how will he survive this?” It was, “How do I get him to 110%?” And one of the top things she could do to get him there was to take care of herself.

“I did what I needed to do to take extreme care of myself.”

JJ knew she had to: 1. Be there for her son. 2. Ensure her book was a success (The Virgin Diet). 3. She needed to put her health FIRST. And that’s what she did to make sure she was at the top of her game to help her son fight for his life. Not long after JJ’s son’s accident, it was suggested that in addition to the book she had just written (The Virgin Diet), she should write about her recent experience with her son – what tools she used and how she kept strong and positive throughout it all. Thank goodness she said yes to that! JJ’s teachings have come to help thousands of clients reframe their mindset and realize their worth, mind and body. Oddly enough sometimes, it’s not the diet or exercise component that hangs people up, it’s the actual saying or writing down of the words, “I am worthy.” That’s great, but how do you get someone to actually feel worthy? JJ encourages taking ACTION. It’s all about shifting your mindset and moving into action.

JJ teaches her members/readers to practice their “Daily Jam.” Upon waking up every day, the Daily Jam consists of: 1. GRATITUDE: Writing down three things you are grateful for (starting the day in gratitude is a MUST). 2. APPRECIATION: Text someone a message of appreciation. 3. MIRACLE: Write down three miracles that happen that day. And then… Write “I am worthy.” It can be a super difficult thing for some to write, but they work their way up to realizing they are a complete bad ass (and that’s how we ALL should feel by the way). JJ is completely transparent when it comes to her own case of “imposter syndrome.” We all have moments of not feeling like we’re good enough or worthy – that’s reality. There are still days where she wonders what the hell she’s doing. But then she remembers (from personal experience) that no one has it all together. Every successful person has failed their way there… in one way or another. Failure is just a part of life.

“What if fear was actually a sign that you’re stepping up onto a bigger platform and you should feel that? What if when you’re feeling nothing, it’s because you’re playing it safe.”

Fear is never easy to take… but quit playing it safe. Play ALL OUT, even if it means falling on your face.

“It’s necessary, it sucks, it’s painful, but it makes it all amazing and worth it.”

You must be willing to acknowledge the good with the bad. What was good? What were the wins? It’s about appreciating the present moment and lessons and getting real with gratitude.

“When you’re scared to death and you want to get fear shoved out of the way, gratitude shoves it and builds resilience.”

But JJ is again full honest… It never gets easier to take, but the tougher the experience, the more you step up, and the more you grow.

“If your purpose is big enough, it makes you push through. And every time you push through, you’re building that muscle of resilience.”

So on that note, know that you can handle “stuff” – whatever it is. If you set your mind right, you can reframe anything to be a good thing or your miracle. -- JJ Virgin a is celebrity nutrition and fitness expert, who teaches clients how to lose weight and master their mindset so they can lead bigger, better lives.

139: Causing An Effect
12:49

Subscribe to Earn Your Happy on iTunes.

Quick…what are you thinking RIGHT now? Are they positive thoughts filled with love and gratitude? Or are they low-vibe, energy-sucking thoughts that make you want to eat a can of worms? If you’re the latter… don’t eat the worms! Kidding, but seriously, I do want to discuss the power of thoughts and how those thoughts affect your current situation.

I don’t know about you, but I’m fascinated with research – especially when it’s connected to the power of thoughts and changing outcomes. Currently, I’m reading the book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr. Joe Dispenza, and he discusses how by shifting our thoughts from being a victim of our circumstances we can instead cause an effect that creates a different outcome. Nerd alert – I get so excited reading about studies like this.

Dispenza shares research that directly links changes in DNA to positive thoughts. Did you read that? Changes in a person’s DNA!! Isn’t that amazing?! He advises though, that it’s not just about positive thoughts. Within the testing groups of one of the mentioned studies, the changes were only seen when there were positive thoughts AND feelings that went with them.

“It’s not just the thoughts, but rather the intentions behind them.”

We have the power to change our outcomes – just thinking and feeling different things. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m realistic. We’re not all going to wake up singing happy songs and dancing, but that’s exactly why we practice rituals that help get us present and shift into gratitude.

“When you feel grateful, you attract more to be grateful for.”

If you wake up feeling crappy, I get it! Acknowledge that crap sandwich, but don’t eat it! Feel those feelings, but don’t stay there. Give yourself some time, vent to a person if you need to, but MOVE ON.

“Get rid of the thoughts that aren’t serving you, because that’s the outcome you’ll be living in.”

Quickie Tip: Don’t let the idea of changing ALL your thoughts at once bog you down. This is not an all-or-nothing approach. The next time one of those negative Nelly thoughts comes for a visit, recognize it for what it is and choose to make your next thought just a little better. It’s those baby steps that lead to the most impactful and sustained growth.

In This Episode You Will Hear About:

  • How thoughts affect outcome
  • Positivity
  • Cause and effect
  • Gratitude

138: Starting a SOCIAL IMPACT BRAND, Using Tragedy to INSPIRE, and WHY You NEED to Follow your GYPSY SOUL with Rachelle Tratt
58:29

Warning: This podcast may make you want to buy a plane ticket to exotic places and find your soul. Or, perhaps curl up on your couch with a cuddly dog (both of us prefer our goldendoodles) and drink a lavender latte while contemplating your soul’s purpose. ;)

Ok, let me back the train up. Today’s guest, Rachelle Tratt, is a living example of what it means to follow your heart, and you’re going to want to read on/listen to hear why.

In case you’ve never heard of this amazing lady, Rachelle is a Los Angeles-based yoga instructor, community leader, and soulful entrepreneur who created The Neshama Project, a yoga inspired, socially conscious jewelry company that gives back. 

Many may not know this, but Rachelle’s company, The Neshama Project, was actually inspired by the sudden and traumatic loss of her mother when she was only 9 years old. While recognizing now that it was all meant to be part of her path so she could in turn help others, at the time she struggled with anxiety and depression – and just feeling different.

These feelings played out as a teenager as she hit a rebellious phase, which at the age of 18 ended in rehab. It wasn’t so much that she was addicted to alcohol or drugs, it was just that she didn’t know how to cope with things in a healthy way. Part of that rehab program was yoga… While always a self-professed tomboy, Rachelle laughed at the thought of the practice, but once she hit savasana, she was hooked. For the first time in a long time, she found peace.

Not long after rehab, Rachelle became a yoga teacher and eventually ended up taking a yoga training class in California. While living in Florida at time, she knew she needed to make the move permanently to California. 

“It made no sense mentally, but my heart was telling me to go and I knew how to listen to that.”

And speaking of listening to her heart, Rachelle always knew that she would visit Israel (the country where her parents meant). Six years ago, she made the trip, stayed for a month and it was everything she hoped it would be. She felt connected to her mother and while there realized the connection she also felt with the Hamsa hand necklace she received from a yoga friend. Having always been a conversation starter for soulful exchanges, it had followed her after rehab, to California and now to Israel. She knew was meant to play a bigger role in her life.

Just like that, she started searching for stones in Israel (successfully). She wanted to create art and make connections – and she did. Rachelle didn’t have all the answers, but she just knew there was a great purpose for her.

“I believed in the power of a product with a meaning that stood for something greater and the mission behind it.”

Sure, there were a lot of nay-sayers. Having always been a little “different,” everyone thought it was just “one of those things” Rachelle was trying again. Rachelle had faith and trust though that things would work out because she was following her heart’s calling.

“It’s trusting that I am a unique individual and my path isn’t supposed to look like anyone else’s.” 

And thank goodness for that! It’s not to say that there haven’t been growing pains – both personal and business. We’re all constant works in progress. But when something does pop up, whether in the form of darkness, stress or anxiety, she’s learned to acknowledge it and confront it head on.

“My anxiety is directly related to the levels of my self care and self love.” 

Life happens and we have to find the little tools and/or rituals that calm our minds. Here are a few of Rachelle’s favorites:

  • Get your feet on the ground (feel the earth underneath your feet).
  • Breathing
  • Movement – all forms. Yoga is one of her favorites, but she can call just about anything yoga as long as it’s approached with intention.
  • Walking with her golden doodle Bailey (no phone, just being present).
  • One day of rest (kind of like the Jewish tradition of Shabat).

 

Another important factor (and this is super important) is finding a tribe/community/sisterhood that has your back. It can be tricky if you’re from a small area and don’t have as big of a pool as L.A. But she promises that,

“What you put out there is what you attract.” 

So put yourself out there. Way outside of your comfort zone. Start by attending classes and introducing yourself to others. If you seem to click, schedule a time to have coffee… It’s all about using the network around you. And lastly, “dial, don’t file.” People don’t have the time for those who don’t follow through. Nurture your relationships. Does this mean you have to super close relationships with everyone? No! Find that smaller inner tribe who you know on a deeper level, that has your back and you can tell ANYTHING to.

And above all, follow your heart. Follow your soul. Follow your bliss.

*Stay tuned for a post in the hopefully very near future when our golden doodles (and us) have a dog date.

137: Why the TOUGH, BORING Stuff is IMPORTANT
14:46

Today’s message is all about the journey and what it all means. The “journey” doesn’t always have to be this HUGE goal or accomplishment. The beauty of it is that it’s unique to you and it can be ANYTHING that you’re looking to do.

While most focus on the highs, it is equally important to know that the lows (the pain, frustrations and the “hard” parts) are what make the journey, and the highs of it, so amazing. If you’re feeling that discomfort, you know growth is on its way.

“You can’t enjoy the ride without first taking the journey to a place you’ve never been before.”

So you’re on this journey, but what happens when you lose motivation… Monotony hits. You wonder why the heck you’re even on this path. But you must ask yourself, what does your life look like without it? For example, as I’m racing against another deadline for my book, the moment I sit down, all inspiration seems to be lost and doubt creeps in and the last thing I want to do is write. As easy as it is to sink into that mode of defeat, I know the only option I have is to give myself a sometimes-literal shake, dig deep and WRITE.

“You have to keep saying YES and you have to keep MOVING.”

Acknowledge the struggle and how it serves a purpose on your journey. Ask yourself, “How do I get through this?” Reach out to others who are going or have gone through something similar. Know that just because it’s YOUR journey, you’re not alone. And everything you’re going through is meant for the ultimate good.

Just let go…and go with the flow and enjoy the ride.

  • Enjoying the journey
  • Inspiration
  • Pain
  • Growth

136 Easiest Way to Create and Monetize a Blogging or Online Business, Take the Guesswork Out of Starting with Kate McKibbin
59:05

Subscribe to Earn Your Happy on iTunes.

Kate McKibbin is the self-professed very-tall, super nerdy founder of the blog, Secret Bloggers’ Business, and creator of several successful online blog courses and workshops.

Cutting her teeth in the magazine industry in 2007 (when online shopping was just starting to take off), Kate created one of Australia’s largest independent lifestyle blogs (Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily), and grew to a team of five with more than 500,000 visitors a month and several awards to show for her efforts.

Even though her much-loved blog was doing well, Kate still felt called to do more and help more people. In 2014, she created her second business, Secret Bloggers’ Business, to share everything she’d learned about how to create, grow and run a successful blogging business. She did so well that in 2015 she was awarded the Female Entrepreneur of the Year award for her contributions to women in technology. Today, Kate has made it her mission to help bloggers and creatives around the world turn their passions into something that’s profitable, too.

So perhaps you’re looking to get into blogging, but don’t know if you have what takes. Here’s a few things to keep in mind. While a lot of work goes on behind the scenes of a blog, you’re not going to get very far if you haven’t found your passion.

Keep in mind that while blogs used to only be about the person who wrote it (what they ate, what they watched etc.), today’s bloggers must understand that it’s not about THEM! People will follow you based on your point of view, your knowledge and expertise. But don’t worry!

“You don’t have to be the biggest expert in the world. You just have to be a few steps down the track from where your audience is at and help them.”

Also, content, content, content. Are you constantly creating and sharing your findings online? If you can find a group of people who you know you would love to help – and you have the content, experiences and skills to back it up, go for it. You can’t go wrong if you’re going into it from a place of service. So, where do you start? Kate suggests the following steps:

  1. Find your niche. Go “free range” for a bit if you have multiple ideas and can’t decide. What are you drawn to? Put some feelers out there (social media, existing contacts that you may have). What types of things get more engagement? Start putting some of your ideas/content out there and see what draws people in and what sticks.
  2. Brainstorm content. This is a biggie. Come up with as many ideas as possible (Kate suggests 100). What themes could you use (season, different times of the year etc.)? Just because you think it’s great doesn’t mean it’s going to resonate with your audience. Let your audience tell you what direction they want you to go.

If you do start a blog, be sure to have an extreme amount of PATIENCE. Allow 6-12 months to see any type of reward. For Kate, one of her biggest benefits was to have the freedom to do work that she loved. Give it your all, but also be cautiously optimistic.

“Set yourself up so you feel safe enough to take a scary leap.”

When you’re starting out, be super responsive to your audience and be CONSISTENT in your content. This doesn’t mean you have to put out things daily. It can be once a week or month. Just figure out what’s realistic for you and do that. Keep in mind that nothing in life, especially a blog, has guarantees. And you can be certain that others are doing something similar to you. But here’s the thing…all audiences and bloggers are different in SO many ways.

“Don’t compare yourself to others in your space. Find what works for you, but still provides great value to your audience. Focus on you and what’s right for your audience.”

There will be bumps along the road, but stick to it and don’t give up!

“If you’ve got something to say, if you’ve got something to give, and you’ve got a burning fire that says you have to do it, and you feel that pull. There’s no way you’re going to let yourself fail.”

135: How To Figure Out What's Next!
09:37

Earn Your Happy Quickie – ep. 135 – How to Figure Out What’s Next

“There comes a time to stop looking back and trying to figure out why. At some point, we need to shift our attention to what’s next.” – Unknown

Are your thoughts or fears paralyzing you before you’ve even reached a goal? Are you asking yourself questions, such as: Why am I unclear? Why don’t I know what I want to do? Why can’t I move forward? Yikes. I get anxious just thinking about it. 

Today, I want to talk about removing those types of disempowering questions from your brain and replacing them instead with “what’s next?” Sure, I get it. Those questions come from a place of uncertainty and fear and they’re hard to stop. But know that most entrepreneurs (including myself) are willing to explore their curiosity even if that nagging voice in their heads tells them they’re crazy or that it doesn’t fit in with “where they’re at.” They don’t let themselves get STUCK. If they feel called to try something new, they do it regardless of the risk.

“The people who are the happiest are the ones who are most willing to explore all the little soul hits.”

Take the Earn Your Happy podcast as an example. It wasn’t something that I had on my to-do list. At the end of the day,

“I wanted to have epic conversations with people and I wanted an excuse to do it,” 

And well, you know the ending to that story because here we are. You don’t have to have a plan to move forward. You just have to,

“Be willing to put yourself out there and fail.” 

By avoiding any possibility of failure, you risk missing the message you were supposed to hear and possibly something you were called to do.

So, what’s next? My advice… Ask more empowering questions (ditch those that don’t serve you anything more than a side of anxiety) and explore the resources around you. Run toward the failure and thank it for what it’s teaching you.

And one more Earn Your Happy Tip for the road…the more you can fail the better.

134: How to Tap Into Your OWN ENERGY and HEALING POWER with Jessica Ortner
44:30

Have you ever felt off? You know, just struggling with nothing in particular, but never knowing what’s wrong with you?

Can you see my hand raised high above my head?! We’ve all been there!

My conversation with Jessica Ortner totally made sense of this feeling by framing it in a different way. When we feel nervous or anxious, most times it’s not just in our heads – we experience it in our whole body. When you have a stressful thought, she emphasizes the importance of talking through these feelings (you don’t have to be Suzy Sunshine all the time) and acknowledging them through tapping. After all, when your body feels more relaxed, you’re able to take control again.

So what is this tapping thing anyway? Not to be confused with tap dancing, tapping is a technique that uses your fingertips to tap the body’s acupressure points and literally “tap into” your body’s own energy and healing power. Say what?

Jessica also questioned the effectiveness of this practice. Years ago, while suffering from what was a seemingly endless cold, her brother introduced her to tapping. Where did he learn about it? The Internet. Oh boy. How much truth could there be to this? But here’s the thing – it was no joke and it actually helped her. A bit further down the road, it also helped her realize that her issues with her body weight were more deeply rooted. It wasn’t just physical. It wasn’t about a number. It was emotional.

“We have to release that stress and create a better relationship with ourselves.”

So what better way to understand this process than by experiencing it firsthand. I was selfishly glad for the timing of this podcast so I could use it for my own personal benefit (in addition to yours). ;-) During this podcast, Jessica took me through a complete tapping sequence so we could work through my anxiety and fear around my upcoming public speaking engagement (TEDTalk). I would love for you to do the sequence and insert the issue that is currently challenging you. Jessica calls it “borrowing benefits,” because you can still make a connection just by the human experience. (Love that!) Here Are the Steps/Points:

  • Point 1: Start with your Set-Up Statement (Even though I… I accept myself and how I feel.) Now, start tapping on the side of your hand, underneath the pinkie (the karate chop point). It doesn’t matter which side you tap on.
  • Point 2: Move to the start of your eyebrow, right on the bone.
  • Point 3: Follow the brow bone to the outside and tap the side of your eye bone.
  • Point 4: Underneath the eye.
  • Point 5: Underneath the nose.
  • Point 6: Chin (right under your mouth)
  • Point 7: Collarbone (Jessica uses her whole hand here)
  • Point 8: Underneath arm (bra strap area on women)
  • Point 9: Top of the head.

During the tapping process, Jessica stresses that the words aren’t super important, it’s the act of speaking your feelings aloud. You’re not going to do anything “wrong.”

“It’s not about the perfect word, it’s about staying with the emotion.”

Let me tell you, the tapping sequence took my anxiety and fear level from an 8 to a 2 or 3! Amazing, right? If you’re going through something, I encourage you to try it and see if it helps. It’s definitely worth a try to change your energy from nervousness to excitement.

“When it comes to how our body reacts there’s not that much difference between anxiety and excitement.”

I am so grateful that she helped me shift my fear into that space of excitement. And I love that tapping can apply to ANY area of your life – not just public speaking. Having gone through the experience above, how could tapping benefit you?

--

JESSICA ORTNER is the NY Times bestselling author of “The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence” and producer of The Tapping Solution, the breakthrough documentary film on EFT tapping.. She has led more than 5,000 women through her revolutionary Weight Loss and Body Confidence online program, and she is also the host of The Tapping World Summit, an annual online event that has attracted more than 1,000,000 attendees from around the world.

133: FIVE WAYS to be POSITIVE Around NEGATIVE People
11:02

Confession time. Not that long ago, there was a lot of negativity in my life. For some of you this may be hard to believe, but it’s true. I had a ton of toxic friends/relationships in my life and looking back now, I can’t believe I put up with that negativity as long as I did. Some of it was because I failed to set boundaries. Another part was that I tended to take on other people’s “stuff” and carry it as my own. I soon learned, however, that

“You can only control what you can control – and that is YOU.”

I knew that for the sake of my own happiness, I needed to grab the reins and take charge. Here are the five things that help set me on the path to positivity:

1. Know what you can control.

2. Ask yourself, “What is the most beneficial reaction I can have for myself (while still being compassionate).

3. Be compassionate.

4. {Not for the weak.} Call the negative person out.

5. Understand that the person (or your situation) may not change.

Does practicing all five of these things guarantee zero negativity in your life? Not by a long shot – there’s always going to be some amount of negativity in your life. It’s on the street, it’s on the Internet and sometimes, there are people in our lives that we can’t completely cut ties with. If it’s important to you and your happiness, you must start to focus your free time in a more positive place.

If you want to change, you will. If you don’t, you won’t.”

Go to the places that will bring you joy. Spend time with the people who “get” you. And DO the things that help lift you up. Some days will be more difficult than others, but it’s up to you to keep your head and heart in a positive place.

132: Manifesting PR, Running Your Own Events and How to do Outreach for Your Brand with Sarah Pendrick
53:05

Sarah Pendrick is the Founder and Creator of the non-profit movement GirlTalk, and her mission is to empower women of all ages while serving as a resource for young women. Sarah is a self-love advocate, life coach, writer, empowerment speaker and philanthropist. With a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master's in family therapy, developed, GirlTalk, an empowerment program for young women. She travels all over the United States to speak to the women of our next generation and provide them with support, education and empowerment.

Through GirlTalk, Sarah not only features and connects powerful women with a purpose, she also celebrates them through her events and programs by giving them a platform and a space to thrive and use their voice. Growing up, viewing herself solely based on what others thought of her, Sarah always knew she had the ability to be extraordinary, but the opinions of others quickly shot her down.

“I lived this constricted life between doing what I knew I wanted to do inside, and also going to my parents and friends for their opinions.”

Having experienced bullying throughout her middle school years, she felt things that she never wanted other young women to feel, which led her toward getting her master’s degree in psychology, putting in positive work as a volunteer and helping at non-profit organizations and events.

“I always felt fulfilled when serving others and at the same time it also helped me with what I was going through. But the attachment I grew for my clients and their issues, would come home with me at the end of the day, which led me to believe I wasn't meant to be a psychologist.”

Fast forwarding and continuing on to find her true authentic-self, Sarah ended up putting in the personal work to learn about her own self love and to then be proud enough to preach it to others as well. And this eventually became GirlTalk.

Being fearless in the pursuit of asking, Sarah’s confidence skyrocketed allowing her to reach tons of amazing women to help and speak at her incredible events. It’s amazing what the universe will do for you – you just have to ASK. Do you have plans and dreams of your own to serve those around you? Jump right in! #womenempoweringwomen

130: Achieve MORE While Doing LESS with Kate Northrup
55:59

As an entrepreneur, best-selling author, mother, and activist, Kate Northrup supports ambitious, motivated and successful women to light up the world without burning themselves out in the process. Committed to empowering women entrepreneurs to create their most successful businesses while navigating motherhood, Kate is the founder and CEO of Origin Collective, a monthly membership site where women all over the world gather to achieve more while doing less. Her first book, Money: A Love Story, has been published in 5 languages. Kate’s work has been featured by The Today Show, Yahoo! Finance, Women’s Health, Glamour, and The Huffington Post and she’s spoken to audiences of thousands with Hay House, Wanderlust, USANA Health Sciences, and more. Kate lives with her husband and business partner, Mike, and their daughter Penelope in Maine. Find out more and receive your free copy of Have More By Doing Less: 3 Simple Steps To Create Space For What Matters Most at katenorthrup.com Growing up on the coast of Maine, Kate always possessed the ways of a natural entrepreneur.

“My very first business was at the age of 7 with my sister. We would sell jewelry and bouquets of fresh wildflowers.”

Fast forward some years and at the age of 18, Kate was making more income than the average teenager. After graduating from Brown University in 2001, her income for such a young age was enough to prevent her from going into the “after-college-crisis” of looking for a full-time job. But that quickly changed after she moved to NYC and rapidly got herself into more than $20K worth of debt.

“I had this idea that if I acted as if I already had the income that I wanted, that somehow I magically just would. I guess I missed the part that I actually had to do something about it.”

After indulging in some self-help/self-love books (listed below), Kate came to the realization that changing her mindset around her financial situation could potentially and positively get her out of this pickle.

Perhaps if I approached my financial life with the perspective of taking care of myself in a loving way instead of a place of hard-core discipline, guilt and shame that maybe I could make some lasting changes.”

From that moment forward, she added “taking care of finances” to the list of other things that equal “taking care of thyself.”

“Keeping up with my bookkeeping was just as important as keeping up with my pedicures.”

It’s hard to pinpoint the one thing that hit home the most when talking to someone as creative and incredible as Kate, but her advice about growing no matter what stage of life or business you’re in now is something we can all learn from.

129: COURAGE Comes Out Of THIS...
07:38

“We don’t develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging diversity.” – Barbara De’Angelis

I feel that the tribe I have created and continue to grow is truly my life’s mission and work. Just know that without the rain, there would never be a rainbow. You are never alone, and although there are numerous differences between each of us, there is an equal amount of similarities.

“Beautiful opportunities can also bring serious amounts of fear.” But, just remember that everything you want is on the other side of fear.

At the end of the day, all that really matters is that you are running toward your bliss.

“It’s not finding your bliss, it’s following your bliss.” – Joseph Campbell

128: Broke Mindset to a Mulit-millionaire Mindset with Chris and Lori Harder
59:12

This is from an episode of the For The Love Of Money podcast that I was on and I really wanted to share it with you guys! For those of you who may not my past or how it all began for her, I have the honor of sharing it with you today. Having a “money mindset” may not come naturally to everyone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t ever create it.

“My success hasn't always been like this and I know it’s something I will continue to work on for the rest of my life because I know that once you hit one level, there is a whole other level out there that you need to strive for.” -Lori Harder

Growing up, Lori was raised in a very conservative household. At a young age she was told, “Money is the root of all evil and you only need to make enough to survive. Anything more than that is evil and greedy.” With the constant battle in her head between money isn't good vs. how does the world go ‘round without it, can you see how that would create a whirlwind for a young child just trying to “make it?” Having two very different views on the subject when we first met, Lori’s money mindset began to shift after we started to spend more time with each other.

“It was refreshing to see that you and your family thought of money as just a thing that created awesome experiences. It was something you looked forward to and were proud of yourself for earning.”

Even though Lori still had the belief that money equaled greed, she still wanted to create a better life for herself – so she made it her mission to incorporate both beliefs. Why not make money, sufficient enough to live well and financially stress free, while still giving back and be of great service to others? DING DING (light bulb goes off)!

“Money doesn’t make you greedy, I believe that it just highlights more of who you already are. It will just amplify how you were already showing up in the world.”

Moving out to the West Coast, for us, put success and wealth in a whole other category. The entrepreneur mindset and the “shameless” money personalities out here, makes the opportunities endless. There is no cap or ceiling. If you have the passion and the heart to create something and make money off it then the world is your stage! (WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD!)

I know from experience that Lori is NOT the only person to come from a family who has fearful thoughts around money. Whether you think you don’t deserve to have a lot of it, or that it’s evil, or you end up spending it faster than you truly earn it, whatever it may be, my wife and I are here today to break through some of those tough beliefs and to “give you permission” if you will, to take control of your own life and finances. Hard work should always be recognized and rewarded. You will forever be blessed if you think big and share your gifts.

127: Gratification Won't Be Enough To Last, You're Missing This
15:38

“Life doesn’t get less busy.”

If I’ve learned anything lately, it’s that if I don’t start doing the things that I enjoy, right here and right now, then I’m never going to do them. Quit using the “whens” as excuses. You know, the “Oh, I’ll do that WHEN this is finished, or WHEN the kids are away” etc. Life doesn’t slow down and it most definitely doesn’t stop. You – and only you – are the one who can fit in the fun things for yourself. Because even after your “whens” are accomplished, there will be another task waiting just around the corner. So let’s start fitting them in NOW!

“Stop postponing your joy.”

Life happens and there are definitely things that take priority over others, but keeping your soul happy must be at the top of your list if you’re looking for that everlasting gratification. I’m challenging you to start this week – a minimum of 45 minutes a week to do something that makes your soul smile. Follow that one thing that has been pulling at your heart strings. (For me, it’s my guitar…no pun intended.)

“The ones that say there’s no time to play are the ones who need to play the most.”

  • Personal challenges
  • Gratification
  • Time Management
  • Affirmations
  • Gratitude
  • Being Present
