Focus Friday: How to Prepare for Your Success

Did you look at the title of this podcast and think, “but what if I’ll never succeed” Or…“I don’t even know what success means.” Good news! This one’s for you.

Today’s episode is about reverse engineering our success and defining for ourselves what it is in life that would bring us the most joy; and it’s also about living with that joy… in this very moment. Grab a pen and some paper for this one, I’m about to ask you questions that dig right in to the heart of your desire and help you understand what success looks like for you, and how you just might find it. IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN: How to define success for yourself The questions to ask yourself to help you move into total alignment What it means to bring the joy with you SOUL SHIFTING QUOTES: “We can create a life and a journey to align with what our definition of success is.” “We don’t get what we want because we’re desperate. We get what we desire because we’re inspired.” “We cannot operate from a place of ultimate conditions. We need to operate from a place of unconditional success.” “Are you preparing with, or for, your joy?”

The Gift of Failure with Master Dog Trainer Chris Fraize

I met Chris Fraize almost a year ago after a friend referred we seek his help with training our sweet (and wild) dogs. I met with him for a consultation at his headquarters, Canine Solutions Training Services. Needless to say, it was clear we had A LOT of work to do. What struck me the most was how Chris pinpointed some of my biggest insecurities and struggles in the session and pointed them out to me with a proverbial laser beam. He has a deep love for dogs and recognizes that by helping their people be the leaders in their lives and families, he is also changing the lives of their dogs.  He is a former standup comedian and has been approached by multiple reality TV networks for his very own shows; but, he has chosen to forgo those opportunities because they did not feel in alignment with his core message. I am happy to report that Chris has not only helped our dogs to help us, but he has helped me step in to my power to become a better coach, parent and leader across the board in my life. I can't wait for you to listen to this epic conversation and to also take away some great tips for working with your dogs, as well.  Chris has been professionally training dogs for more than 20 years. He specializes in canine behavior rehabilitation and has trained Police K-9 national qualifiers, weight pull national champions, therapy and agility dogs. He has given seminars on canine behavior problems, dog bite prevention, weight pull, dog sport problem solving and more.  Chris has been featured on Animal Planet, in Dog Sport Magazine and other national publications, radio, news and television programs. He has won a multitude of awards and certifications for training, judging and participating in canine competition. IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN: Why Chris believes failure is our greatest opportunity. How the past-future pendulum is keeping you trapped. How to be the leader of the pack in your life and business. How the "Disney syndrome" is affecting your relationship with your pets. Why weaving family in to business is one of the most important decisions he has made as a parent and partner. How to be authentically you in your brand and business without apology.

Dr. Elson Haas on Optimizing Health

Are you looking for simple ways to balance your mind, body, and soul? Today's guest, Dr. Elson Haas, approaches diagnosis and treatment with the maxim "Lifestyle first, Natural therapies next, drugs or surgery last." His unique integration of Natural, Eastern, and Western medical approaches, which he calls NEW Medicine, is built on restoring proper body physiology and supporting healthy cells and tissues to promote healing. It recognizes proper nutrition as the cornerstone of health and also includes elimination diets and detoxification practices, often with a seasonal focus. Dr. Haas has practiced this philosophy for more than 40 years in his work as an integrative family physician, incorporating these practices within an insurance model at his clinic, the Preventive Medical Center of Marin in San Rafael, CA, where he and an extensive team of practitioners and staff have provided care to their patients since 1984. In this episode, Dr. Haas explains how, as humans, we are on this planet to learn and grow. When we block that growth, we create resistance in the body. Traditional Chinese medicine sees this very quickly, things need to flow through our bodies. Dr. Haas reveals the 5 keys to staying healthy: Nutrition: eat wholesome foods, avoid junk + chemicals. Exercise: finding something that we actually like to do. Sleep: we need to sleep to recharge ourselves + get energy. Stress: learn how to get along with people + how not to get along with people. Attitude: what is our approach to the world + ourselves? Later, Dr. Haas reveals methods of getting off of caffeine, alcohol, sugar, and other medicines and getting back to our own natural energies.

Today’s guest, Kris Britton, is a Life and Success Coach to women who want to love themselves and live free. Kris empowers women to clear all the blocks that hold them back from confidently living their dreams.

It has been a lifetime in the making + a dream come true, and I couldn’t be more honored to have had this sacred soul-conversation with the one, the only- Mark Nepo. Mark Nepo moved and inspired readers and seekers all over the world with his #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Awakening. Beloved as a poet, teacher, and storyteller, Mark has been called “one of the finest spiritual guides of our time,” “a consummate storyteller,” and “an eloquent spiritual teacher.” His work is widely accessible and used by many and his books have been translated into more than twenty languages.

In 2017 Mark became a regular columnist for Spirituality & Health Magazine.

I hope you walk away feeling as grounded and present in your life as ever, leaving with the knowing that, as Mark so eloquently stated- there is no other place to go than HERE.

And if you don’t love, then what’s the point?” “The reward for being thorough is being whole-hearted.” “Everything is worth writing about, everything is a miracle- I’m the one who comes in and out of focus. It’s all about discovering, rather than inventing.” “We never have to apologize for the truth of our experience.” “Even atheists believe in something larger than them; they just call it ‘nothing’, I just call it ‘everything’.” “That seed below the ground, in the dark, has no idea that there is even a sun or a surface… and it is drawn to the light.” Links Mentioned: Read Carlos Castenada’s Journey to Ixtlan Grab your FREE training, How to Call in your Tribe + Create Content that Converts Purchase Your Ticket to the Ignite Your Soul Summit Here Learn more about Mark and all of his incredible writings at marknepo.com Did you hear something you loved here today?!

Focus Friday: Stay Open

There is nothing quite as peaceful or healing as watching the ocean waves crash into the shore on a perfect midsummer’s day. I stopped by the water for some reflection + healing of my own recently, and got to thinking about the natural cadence, the rise and fall, of our daily lives. In this week’s Focus Friday, I share the downloads that came through about our  willingness to stay open, to receive and to let go and trust that what’s on its way back to us, is precisely the very thing that is meant for us. In this episode: Our daily lives and its ebbs and flows [ 1:40 ] The infinite opportunities that present themselves to us [ 4:35 ] Soul Shifting Quotes: “I can find my center at any moment as long as I am open to it.” “Create space in your life to discover the equilibrium that you really want to live in.” “Know that the waves are going to rise, and they’re going to take things out of your life sometimes- but they’re never going to stop- they’re always going to continue rolling.” “Infinite opportunities are always presenting themselves to us, but often we don’t see them because we are already too closed down protecting our tender hearts. Therefore we miss the magic that is asking for us to open.” Links Mentioned: Grab your FREE training, How to Call in Your Tribe + Create Content that Converts Did you hear something you loved here today?!
