If you want to create a new life, or even a small reboot, where do you start? With a vision? A plan? Not exactly. You start by living the life you already have with joy. True joy comes not from our circumstances, but from inside. On this episode we’ll discuss three important reasons to start with joy.
The other day I stopped on my walk to visit two horses who live at the end of my street. One came over almost right away to say hi. He’s gotten used to seeing me on my evening walks in the neighborhood. I often feed him some grass when I stop by, which is probably the real reason he comes so quickly when I stop by.
But this time he didn’t take the grass.
Have you wondered what your purpose is? Maybe even tried to find it? And nothing seems like “it”? Me too. On today’s episode we’re talking about how to be okay with not knowing, and what to do while we’re searching.
I’m supposed to be in Philadelphia at a conference today. I was supposed to be there on Sunday and Monday too. But I’m not. I’m at home.
And I’m right where I should be.
Our plans don’t always go according to…well…plan. Speed bumps, detours, and roadblocks can get in our way. On this episode we’ll explore how to recognize them for what they are, and work with these disruptions to make our plans actually happen
Don’t you wish it was always that easy? Taking a pill and your problem is solved? Maybe in 30 minutes…or 7 days. Presto-change-o: fill the prescription, take the medicine. And you’re all better.
If only it were that simple.
So often we look at other people, and think they have it all together. Maybe you’ve even thought that about me. (Probably not if you’ve listened to this podcast much.) But who really knows exactly what to do all the time? Whose plans work exactly as planned? So much of life is trying stuff to see if it works…and adjusting when it doesn’t. On this episode we get real about just how much we can actually know, killing perfectionism once and for all, and the surprising element that all true success shares.
Last week I attended the Podcast Movement Conference in California. It was the first time I’d gone, and wasn’t sure what to expect. As the time got closer, I wondered if I should even go at all. It’s such a long trip, and I’ve been traveling so much lately that I’m pretty worn out. And I’m not crazy about huge crowds either. But in the end I decided to go.
I learned so much there – and it wasn’t really about podcasting.
I have a confession to make. In the past, I’ve been really hard on myself. Expected more of myself than anyone can actually do. And then I’d collapse in exhaustion. It’s happened at least a few times in my life.
To the point where I’ve made myself sick.
