56: The Art of Loving Yourself, Loving Others and Making the World a Kinder Place (Orly Wahba)

Podcast cover
Read more

Orly Wahba found herself feeling shy, lonely and ignored in high school, until one day she looked in the mirror and remembered a dream she’d had as a child to make a difference in the world. She literally changed her personality and life, and began doing everything she could to be the type of friend she’d wished she had in high school. Listen to hear Orly’s experiences touching the hearts of 7 years worth of middle school students, creating a viral video that has been watched by 26 million+ people, and what she’s doing today to continue to spread this boomerang of kindness.

Orly Wahba is an author, speaker, educator, entrepreneur and community activist who began her career in Brooklyn, NY, where she taught Middle School children to embrace unity, build self-esteem, and be an influence for good. She’s the founder of Life Vest Inside, a non-profit with a mission to empower people of all backgrounds to lead a life of kindness. LVI shot to national attention when her film, Kindness Boomerang, went viral, landing her a spot on TED. In her spare time Orly loves sports, music, movies, figure skating, and above all, spending time with her family.

Nuggets of Wisdom from Orly:

"Margarette Mead: Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

"Showing that each and every person makes a difference matters in a huge way. Everybody has something they can contribute."

"When a person understands their value, they can now understand the value within each and every person."

"To empower people to understand their value, that they matter, that they are significant. And even though they might be one in 7 billion people, the number that matters the most is that they are one. "

"So often people do not understand their value. And if you think about it, if you do not understand your value, there is no way you could understand the value of another."

"Every single second we have a choice, whether to act or to allow things to pass us by."

"When we put something out there positive into the world, the impact and the effects are tremendous, that who we are makes a difference. It does not matter what our job title is but just who we are. That when you walk into the room, you impact people, you affect people. You touch people's lives just by being you. And that is so important to remember."

"I believe that any child can learn, any child can succeed. It is just about being able to get through to them, empowering them enough to believe in themselves when they fail. Because a kid that can do well is going to do well, with or without that grade teacher."

"I know that you are going to try and push me away. I am one person you are never going to push away."

"If you think you cannot do it, you cannot. If you think you dare not, you do not. If you would like to win, and think you cannot, it almost like saying you would not.  If you think you lose, you are lost. For out in this world, we find success begins with a fellow's will;  it is all in the state of mind. Life's battles do not always go to the stronger or the faster man. For sooner or later, the man who wins is the one who thinks he can."

"I am in the job of falling in love with people more and more each day. You cannot see the beauty in others if you do not stop and see the beauty in yourself. You just cannot. Kindness has to begin with you. If you do not love you, if you do not truly believe that you matter, that you make a difference, that you are not your job, or you are not how much you make, or you are not how many followers you have, if you are only going to look at yourself in those ways, if you do not truly love you, outside of those things, then how are you going to love other people?"

"Loving yourself and building that confidence is not like a video game. It is not like you finish all the  levels and then you won. It is a constant battle. There are days where I feel really low on myself. And that is okay, and that is normal. It is not about always being positive, no one can always be positive. It is not real then. You are allowed to feel down. You have to take ownership of those feelings, but you have to be able to be able pick yourself back up afterwards."

"It is very easy to compare ourselves with others, especially in today's world of digital media. When people measure themselves, and measure their value based  on numbers (how many followers, how many likes, how many friends..), those things make no difference. It is a facade; it is so fake; what does it mean? It might for the moment make us feel good. But the only person that could really make you feel good about you is you. Happiness comes from you. It comes from inside. If your happiness is going to depend on a person or on a thing, then it is going to be something that will never become attainable because it is going to be something you are constantly chasing. But if it is happiness based on something that is within you, it is based inside of you, then it is a choice that you make every single day. It is not easy. But nothing that is worthwhile is necessarily going to be easy."

"Our ability to stay afloat in a world that sometimes seems to be pulling us downward is inside of us. It is through the kindness that we give to others and through the kindness that others give to us that we keep each other afloat in this world because we cannot prevent the obstacles and the mishaps and curve balls from coming our way. They are going to come. But what we can do, what we have the power to do, what is in our ability to do is to throw somebody a life vest. A lifeline of kindness. That even though they are still surrounded by those troubles, they are still surrounded by those waters, that life vest is the difference between life and death. It gives them the hope to know that it is going to be okay. "

"...it is not huge gestures, it is the simple things that make the difference. And what we find often is that when we give of ourselves, we actually receive so much more. In a sense, it is like blowing air in our own life vest to keep us strong. When we give, that is the air that we blow into our life vest, making our life vest bigger and stronger, so we can then help others. Because when a person is engaged in active giving or in active kindness, then we feel so good, and there is scientific evidence and proof behind this. We release endorphins. People are less stressed. They live a longer life."

"Confidence comes from a place of strength. A person of confidence will make you feel like you matter. They will make you feel included. They will make you feel important. Arrogance comes from weakness. A person of arrogance will make you feel fearful, will make you feel like you are not good enough, will make you feel intimidated. That is the true test."

"I had to learn to be okay with being alone and still loving myself."

"Use positive energy to propel you forward. Negativity will only lead you down the road of negativity. The more you start looking for good, the more good you are going to see."

Some of Orly's Favorite Things:

Personal habit: "Prayer is a very big thing for me. That has kept me the most grounded. It is my guiding star. Honestly, through all the hardships."

"From Friday night to Saturday night. No phone. No television. No talking about work. No any sort of electric things. It is just being with my family. Being with myself. Connecting to and reflecting on the previous week as to what happened. How I have grown. To have a great time of connectivity and just hanging out with family and playing board games and stuff."

Easy meal: "Fish and beans."

Possession: "Magic Bullet"

Orly's Favorite Books: "The Garden of Emuna: A Practical Guide to Life by Shalom Arush" and "The Secret by Rhonda Byrne"

Best advice received: "Believe in myself and to keep pushing forward. And to know that everything happens for a reason." - Dad

Orly's Happiness Formula:

1. Recognizing you matter. Self-Value component. Self-Love. 2. Pursuing your passion. 3. Opening yourself up to ways that you can offer a lending hand to others. Giving kindness. Engaging in kindness.

A Challenge from Orly:

"Catching Kindness cards. The purpose of these kindness cards, when you see somebody doing it--an act of kindness for someone else--you give somebody a card, and it says on it, 'Tag you're it. You have been caught in the act. Now it is your turn to catch someone else in the act.' Exercise your eye muscle, get out there and spot kindness that is happening around you. Not that is happening to you. It is easy to see kindness happening to you, but the more you start becoming aware of kindness that is happening--good things that are happening in the world--a lot more goodness is going to be reflected back to you. Have at least one positive thing a day that you catch people doing for others."

80: Love Your Marriage Again by Learning the Art of Letting Go of Expectations (Laura Doyle)

Podcast cover
Read more

Laura Doyle struggled for years in her marriage until she finally learned the art of letting go of expectations. Learn how she did, how it helped her husband like being around her again, and how Laura is happier than she’s ever been in her relationship. You can explore more at www.lauradoyle.org

Nuggets of Wisdom from Laura:

"I stopped trying to control my husband and instead, I focused on my own happiness. And that, in turn improved what he sees. I suffered so much in my marriage. I tried everything I could think of, went to marriage counselling and none of that worked for me. And now I know what actually works to make marriage magical again."

"Restoring respect in your relationship in one of the intimacy skills. Respect is like oxygen for husbands. That is how important it is to them. And when they feel respected, they feel loved."

"Intimacy is not just in the bedroom. It is the interactions, the tenders, the funnies, sometimes it’s those interactions you wouldn’t have with anyone else in the whole world. The physical intimacy is the one thing that differentiates the romance from any other relationship you have in the world. Intimacy is when I feel desired. It’s when I feel that he is seeking my company and when he is sharing with me openly because he feels there is emotional safety. That’s when I know the intimacy is high."

"The only person you can ever control is yourself. And then when I did change, my husband responded to me so differently. It was so much better, like ten times better. For me, it was actually good news."

"Only happy people can have happy relationships. It’s unspeakably wonderful to feel so loved every single day. It gives me a lot of inner strength and I say that not to brag but just to say: This is what’s possible for all women. Cause all husbands respond so beautifully to being respected and they want to make their wives happy."

Some of Laura's Favorite Things:

"Most women feel it’s awful until they do it. And that habit is apologizing to my husband when I am disrespectful. I apologize for being disrespectful… I honor my husband’s thinking.

Express your desires in a way that inspires. To let him hear what I wanted instead of complaining. Instead of saying: John, this place is a disaster area! I would say: John, I would love a clean kitchen."

Favorite kitchen gadget: "My Zester. It adds so much flavor."

Rachael's Favorite Books: "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus by John Gray"

Laura's Happiness Formula:

"Asking myself these two questions. How do I feel? What do I want? Desire is the seat of feminine power. Communicate with everyone around me in a way that’s honoring of me but also showing up as a delight and not a bear. Not a martyr, and not a nag, not a porcupine but someone who can smile because you are all filled up."

A Challenge from Laura:

"Get Cherished.com 5 days challenge. Everyday for five days, I will send you an email and do an experiment that’s gonna give you an unfair advantage and making your relationship vibrant and easy. If it works for you, keep it."

34: How to Stop Overspending with Lauren Greutman

Podcast cover
Read more

One evening Lauren spent $600 on clothes. When she got home, she left the purchases in the car so her husband wouldn’t find out. The next day she decided she had to tell him what she had done, and how it was only the tip of the iceberg of the $40,000 of debt she had racked up. “When I told him, he just stood there staring at me for a while, then he said, ‘I forgive you. Let’s get through this together.’” Fast forward to today: Lauren and her husband are not only out of debt, but Lauren is teaching others how to do it, too. Lauren is the author of ‘The Recovering Spender’ and blogs at LaurenGreutman.com. Listen to find out the 3 rules that help her stay out of debt today.

Nuggets of Wisdom from Lauren:

"When the pain of staying broke becomes greater than the pain of changing your spending habits, that is when you will make a change. " "A lot of the debt was because I got us into the debt and never told him about it because I did not want to burden him. It was not that I was like trying to be sneaky. I just did not want to burden him. I would just say, 'Okay, it's what everybody does. I am just having a terrible time dealing with it so it is my fault, so I just need to handle it and get us out of it....'"

"I started feeling really guilty about it. I started thinking like, 'Okay, I hid this from him because I didn't want to fight with him... He knew we were in debt, but he did not know how much. But he knew we were in debt and here I am, going and spending $600 on clothing and now I am hiding it from him. This is not just good for our marriage and our future. The next day I decided to come clean to him and tell him all the debt that we had. And make a real difference. I felt like for the first time I realized that I could not do it myself, like I needed his help to handle this and to have somebody to talk to about it. It is really like - not only it is lonely and stressful but it is just damaging to your marriage if you have this big elephant in the room that you can never talk about it."

"He said, 'I forgive you, let us get through this together.' And so those are the words that changed everything. That was 9 years ago and from then on we got out of debt in 2 years. We just had a passion for teaching other people all the mistakes that we went through."

"I have a spending problem. I think I always have the personality to be addicted to spending. And because of that I have to know what boundaries I have to set up around myself, so I do not spend money. Like 3 rules that I have. #1.) Do not go to Target alone. My second one, if I do any online shopping, I use a prepaid debit card, so I have to fund it beforehand. And #3, I do not use credit cards. So, those are my three big boundaries I had to put around myself, to keep myself safe. So, yes, I would definitely say, it is an addiction of some sort."

"The biggest thing that they need to learn is how to set a realistic budget. For years, I was so terrified of the B word. I cringed on the inside. But once I saw that a budget can actually bring freedom to me, it really kind of opened up my eyes to all that's possible. For so many years, I spent money without knowing what was going on and, yes, that was fun and great, but then, you sit down at the end of the day, and you are like, 'Oh my gosh, I spent this much money. I did not know that I spent this much money! I don't know where it went. And now, you don't have money for your bills.' So, I found out that budgeting actually gives me freedom to spend what I want to without giving me that guilt and feeling of depletion at the end of the day. I think people need to set that realistic budget, and it can really really help them."

Some of Lauren's Favorite Things:

Personal habit: "That I can turn work off.  I think that is a big thing. As an entrepreneur who works online, the temptation to work all day and all night and every weekend is there, you know, in your face all the time. We finally got an office outside of our house and that has been really imperative to my success with everything that I do online. I got so sick of being half on, half off all day long, that setting it up this way has really kept us very productive during our work hours and also being able to be a husband and wife at night and hang out with the kids, go out to dinner, and do fun stuff together without feeling guilty that I have so much work to do."

Easy meal: Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Possession: Blendtec

Lauren's Favorite Book: For the Love by Jen Hatmaker

Best advice received: "Be kind to others because they will be kind to you."

Lauren's Happiness Formula:

"I am happiest when I stick to my budget, I spend time with family, and I sleep."

A Challenge from Lauren:

"I want everybody to think about their values and if their spending is a reflection of that value system. Because whether you are in debt or not, you can always do something better with your finances. It always comes down to your value system."

Constant rushing, problems with relationships, and neverending to-do lists can leave us feeling lost, out of balance, and knowing something has to change. In this episode, Leah Guy shares how to create 5-minute chunks of time to care of yourself, how to begin acknowledging your feelings and emotions so you can begin meeting your emotional needs, and how to use your emotional wholeness to improve your relationships.

What You'll Learn in this Episode:
  • How to easily build small chunks of self care into your day.
  • Why expecting your spouse to change is actually a form of self-sabotage.
  • How to let go of the need to control.
  • How checking in with your thoughts, emotions and feelings is much more doable (and effective!) than a strict, formulaic approach to meditation.

84: Creating a Powerful Vision for Your Life (Valorie Burton)

Podcast cover
Read more

Being able to ask powerful questions is an important tool for good communication and happy living, and journaling is a phenomenal way to unlock the answers to those questions. Valorie Burton shows you how in this episode.

For more about Valorie, you can visit her website at www.valorieburton.com

Nuggets of Wisdom from Valorie:

"If you love what you do and you are so passionate about it, you probably would do it even if you don’t get paid for it. That’s the ideal state." 

"I discovered my purpose in terms of my actual mission statement. I had an epiphany of it one day at a bookstore in 1999, that I was meant to inspire women to live more fulfilling lives, that I would do it through writing and speaking. Within a few weeks after that, I began writing my first book. I’ve written 11 books. "

"Things have unfolded not as I would have expected them, but in just the right way. I’m not sure I would have been ready for my husband. So I don’t begrudge my divorce or anything else, because it has led me to where I’m supposed to be."

"I believe wholeheartedly in journaling and writing. Writing was a part of who I am as a kid. Journaling has health benefits. It can help us work through trauma. If we can write our best possible selves in our journals, it’s a very powerful exercise. I had written what I had envisioned in the present tense. My journal was full of hope. I think that helped me a great deal in getting to a place where I was ready for what I really wanted."

"I’m a coach. What coaches do best is ask questions. It’s not about having the right answers, it’s about having the questions that help others to be able to come up with their own answers. Because I really believe everyone has their own answers. So the person who’s able to ask powerful questions, whether it’s the question that helps you negotiate better or the question that helps you connect with someone better. Being able to ask powerful questions is really an important tool for good communication."

Some of Valorie's Favorite Things:

Morning Routine:  "Meditate for 5 minutes, pray, think about what I’m looking forward to during the day, asking, 'What do I get to do today?' Always eat breakfast (perhaps a breakfast burrito - spinach/eggs/cheese/burrito)."

Favorite Book: Don Miguel Ruiz's The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom"

What does it mean to be a Vibrant Happy Woman?:

"Being vibrant and happy is really a part of how I define success. My definition of success is harmony of purpose, resilience, and joy - knowing I’m here to inspire others."

A Challenge from Valorie:

"Just be happy right now. Stop waiting for things to unfold the way you want to. Stop holding your happiness hostage to your circumstances and make a decision right now to be happy. I made the decision to be happy. It’s a choice. It’s not always easy. It’s a whole lot better when we find reasons."

13: How to Live a Slower, More Authentic Life with Kris Vaughan

Podcast cover

Kris Vaughan was always a go-getter, moving at 100 miles per hour, feeling great pride in her ability to do it all with great efficiency. But that all changed when she decided to run a half marathon, which finally put her already-delicate health into a downward spiral ending in a thyroid crash or what some call adrenal fatigue. After 2 years of nourishing herself with healthy foods and having lots of quiet time just “being,” Kris has restored her health and continued to make it a priority to live slowly, deliberately and with authenticity.

45: "I Can Choose to Be Happy" (Ruth Soukup)

Podcast cover
Read more

After going through years of severe depression Ruth Soukup made her way back to a place of light and hope. She said, “I made a choice to be happy and not spend the rest of my life feeling broken.” Fast forward to today: Ruth is a blogger, author, and entrepreneur, as well as the New York Times bestselling author of Living Well Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life and the founder of the Living Well Planner™. Through her popular blog, LivingWellSpendingLess.com, she encourages more than a million monthly readers to follow their dreams and reach their goals, sharing easy-to-implement tips and strategies for saving time and money while focusing on the things that matter most. She lives in Washington State with her husband Chuck and two daughters, Maggie and Annie.

Nuggets of Wisdom from Ruth:

"Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is only the courage to continue that matters." -Winston Churchill

"Life is just a journey that we're on. We have ups and downs. We have highs and lows. And it is just a reminder to me that when things go right, it does not mean that that is the end, and I can be done. And when things go wrong, it is not the end of the world... you've got to keep moving, and you've got to keep going forward."

"I slowly began to figure out how to live again, and it took awhile. But it was that conscious moment of saying, 'I am not going to dwell in the past anymore.'"

"There is hope. I think that was the thing that for me, especially when I was in that really dark place. I love my story just in the sense that I am one person that you can look at and say, 'She was there. She was in that dark place and things got better for her.' There is hope, and believe that there is hope and there is light at the end of the tunnel and hold on to that hope even if you cannot see the last light and you cannot feel the hope for yourself."

"That is really where my heart is: encouraging women to set goals for themselves and to figure out practical ways to handle those other things that keep us so busy, so that there is a little more margin for those things that really get us excited."

"As humans, we do not need somebody to preach at us and tell us all the things we are doing wrong and the other people are doing it better, but to realize that there are other people out there who have struggled just like we do and maybe have a rough time and have some solutions along the way: 'Here's what helped me, this might help you too...'"

"Give yourself permission to dream for 20 minutes or half an hour about all of the possibilities and write those things down, and start thinking, 'Yeah, you know what, I could maybe do this.' I like to encourage people to dream, or to set goals that are so big that they scare you a little bit. Because I think that when you feel that little tingle of excitement inside yourself, like, 'Oh my gosh, I cannot believe I just said that. I cannot believe that I just admitted that to myself, that I really want to do that...' -that is where you start to like feel that passion, to feel that fire inside. And then from there, once you have given yourself permission to think big and dream big, I really like to encourage people to dream big and plan small. Instead of starting with a day to day thing, starting with your grand vision. And breaking it down to your goals for the years, and then break that down into your goals for the month. And then break that down for your goals for the week. And then for your goals for the day. Doing that makes you realize what is really important. Because the reality for us is that there is only 24 hours a day. We can only do so much and none of us can do everything. You start with your big things, and you make those the first things on your list rather than the last things on your lists.  You will accomplish more..."

"That failure has actually taught me so much about myself. Because I realized failing was not the end of the world. I thought dropping out of law school would have been the end of the world but instead it allowed me eventually to... find what my passion is, which is what I am doing now. But I  would have never been doing what I am doing now if I finished law school. "

"Sometimes the process of trial and error, and the process of just putting yourself out there and trying new things allows you to find what you truly love and what you are truly passionate about."

"Keep doing the best that you can and you will be fine."

Some of Ruth's Favorite Things:

Personal habit: "Getting up early."

Easy meal: "I love breakfast for dinner. And freezer meals."

Possession: "Cheese slicer! Gouda."

Ruth's Favorite Books: " The Power of Habit by Charles DuhiggSmarter Faster Better by Charles Duhigg, and Good to Great by Jim Collins"

Best advice received: "Everybody feels that way and we are all just making it up as we go along. And the best thing that you can do is just keep plugging away and keep making it up as you go along."

Ruth's Happiness Formula:

"My kids and my husband. Being able to do the work that I do. Being able to get up early in the morning and work at something that I love. Helping people along the way and making a difference in people's lives. "

A Challenge from Ruth:

"Take the Crushing It mini course."

About this Happy Bit:

Often, when we marry and have kids, we abdicate some of our responsibilities, such as meeting our own emotional needs, managing our finances, making independent decisions, or even creating the healthy boundaries necessary to take care of ourselves physically and emotionally. We can change all of that by making the choice to be the captain of our own ship and taking 100% responsibility for our happiness.
