UnYielded: Thriving No Matter What – Blog

The UnYielded Blog is dedicated to bringing hope, knowledge and assurance that people can be more successful and more fulfilled if they choose. It’s what I’ve done for the past 20+ years in my career, it’s who I strive to be in my personal life and it’s what I believe I was called to do.

Posts fall into these major themes:

Awareness – own accurate awareness of who we are and who we want to become

Habits and Practices – how we put our values into action

Just Start – finding the courage to risk failure, make a mistake, or push a comfort zone

Mindsets – what we believe to be true and to be possible about ourselves and others

New Paths – seeking new paths; responding at a crossroads; resilience when a challenge forces us off our current path

Overcoming Obstacles and Challenges – often great teachers, they also reveal a better version of ourselves.

You at Your Core – Knowing who we are, absent the shoulds that creep up on us and limit our potential. Coaching – Learning how to learn and how to help others learn

Are You Holding Your Happiness Hostage?
There is a highly pricey trap into which we have all fallen occasionally. Some of us believe that we can be happy when we are at ease. Some of us think that when we relax, we can be satisfied.

Car Trouble or Opportunity?
If you think about how you will encounter rude drivers when you get into your car to drive, you’re likely to miss the person who lets you merge into traffic.

So which is more prevalent in your daily life, the positive or negative? Do you think you have trained your mind well?
You CAN beat the clock!
When you go by plane, your itinerary must adhere to a certain degree of rigidity because the plane will not wait for you if you are late.

But at some point over the course of the years, it is possible that this has taken over your entire life.

The Difference Between Anger and Action
How frequently have you heard someone say, “I know I shouldn’t get angry”? There is considerable ambiguity regarding this phrase. We are primarily conflating the emotion of anger, which is a valid data point, with the manifestation of rage, for which we can get in trouble. In other words, It is acceptable to feel anger. What counts is what you do with it, where sometimes you may run into difficulties.
Are Your Values Showing Up On Your Calendar?
Many of us have been taught to look for flaws. Instead, it is time to start noticing the great things that occur in our lives, even on a tiny scale, and realize how grateful we ought to be. Conversely, practicing gratitude and discovering the ideal criteria for measuring success can completely transform our life. My guest today is someone who integrates social and emotional intelligence into all aspects of her life. She serves as the executive director at the Institute for Social and Emotional Intelligence. She is also a coach for social and emotional intelligence. Amy Sargent-Kossoff joins this episode to discuss her extraordinary knowledge and expertise in rethinking and rewriting life stories with emotional intelligence.
When Interpretation Becomes a Limiting Lie
Are there any things you won’t even attempt because you believe you will fail or be unable to master them? Avoiding such tasks is quite acceptable; if you do not wish to do them. But if there is something you genuinely want to do, regardless of the chances, you can achieve it if you make an effort to learn and practice it. Generally, when we accept a limitation, we likely shortchange ourselves; nonetheless, life is too short and beautiful to have a limitation.

I’ll Be Happy When
We, including most top achievers, tend to motivate ourselves by withholding praise until we achieve our objectives. We erroneously believe that this is inspiring, or we fear that if we are not critical of ourselves, we will grow complacent and regress. But the issue is that we are hindering our performance. On the other side, we are goal-oriented and skilled at sacrificing the immediate for the future. This is why we may set objectives and attain them despite the difficulty of the work. Nonetheless, it forces us to postpone our joy; our happiness becomes a hostage of someday, which does not materialize on our calendars.
