Make A Mistake!: #15 Thriveology Podcast

Make mistakes and Thrive!“The successful man will profit from his mistakes and
try again in a different way.”
? Dale Carnegie

We all make mistakes.  No way around that.  But do you try to avoid making mistakes?  STOP!

That doesn’t mean you should stop caring, become careless, and try to make mistakes.  But perhaps we should all risk making more mistakes.

In this week’s podcast, I examine our fears of making mistakes. . . and why those fears can keep us stuck!

We came into this world, making mistakes repeatedly.  That is how we learned to crawl, walk, run, talk, read, and just about every other skill.  And we didn’t care back then.

Then one day, most of us adopt the rule, “don’t make a mistake.”  Too bad!  That usually means we are playing small, missing opportunities, and not likely to grow.

Join me for this podcast, “Make A Mistake!”  Then let me know what mistakes you have made, what you learned, and how we can ALL make more productive mistakes!  Leave a comment below.

Anatomy Of An Apology: #13 ThriveNation

ThriveologyApologyHave you ever apologized, only to have it backfire on you, the other person even more angry than before?  Have you ever had someone apologize to you, but for some reason, it left you feeling more frustrated?

I’ve been there — on both sides!  And after watching countless apologies in therapy sessions (some good and some more like a politician’s “apology”), I noted some “rules” to apologies that work.  An apology that works is one that a) takes responsibility for actions, and b) leads to reconciliation.

Would you like to know the 4 rules to an effective apology?  I cover it in this week’s Thriveology Podcast, the podcast for thrivers.

Take a listen and let me know in the comments area below, what rules did I miss?

Interview with Julie Michaels, Taming the Ego Mind: Episode 10, Thriveology Podcast

TamingEgoMindEver notice how your mind can hold you back, keep you from making the changes you “think” you want to make?  Your mind is sabotaging your progress, whether you know it or not.

Today, I have the honor of talking with Julie Michaels (DreamWithJulie.com ).  Julie is a Master Life Coach, specializing in helping people make permanent shifts to their their dream life — whatever that is!

Julie believes that we all carry an ancient (and yet child-like) mind that is afraid of change.  The fear comes from an inability to see and understand the new reality.  That part of the mind likes to live in a world of same-ness and “known-ness,” not the world of newness and possibility.

At the same time, there are methods and technologies that can help get you there.  Listen in as Julie and I discuss how to make the necessary shift.

Fear Series, Part 1: Authentic versus Existential Fear — Thriveology Podcast

dealing with fear and thrivingFear:  it is not just a figment of our imaginations.  Sometimes, we need to be afraid.

But the need to be afraid, the reaction to a very real threat, is much less common than when our irrational, existential fears kick in.  When that happens, we live small.

In today’s podcast, we take a look at what happens when fear rules our day.  We look at the roots of the conflict.  Are we predator?  Are we prey?  Because we are both, we are left with some remnants of fear avoidance.

That little voice whispering for you to play small, to not take action, to not pursue a life you crave?  That is fear talking.  Fear is pretending to be your friend.  But your fear is betraying you and keeping you stuck.

Learn how to identify the fear for what it is and take action to limit fear in your life.
