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

What You Hear from Others and Even Yourself May Not Be True
Some of the things you hear from others and even yourself may not always be true and correct. My guest for today believes that life is what you make. Learning through numerous miserable life experiences, by now, she teaches “Habits of Happiness” in various settings, including groups, clubs, church activities, corporations, and community continuing education centers. Moreover, she hosted a radio talk show called “The LemonAid Stand,”  where she featured people who have taken life’s lemons and made lemonades. Also, she is now in demand as a motivational speaker who enjoys discussing how to discover true joy, peace, and love regardless of the circumstances in life. Heidi Alldredge, an inspirational and wonderful personality, joins us on today’s episode to share her story and offer new insights that will leave you with a renewed sense of hope and optimism for life.
Choosing Optimism Will Change Your Life
The way we perceive, feel, and explain the world around us has great influence in our life journey. Optimism is a way of responding to the world around us that has many benefits, including developing better coping skills, lower stress levels, better physical health and higher persistence when pursuing goals. In this episode we explore how to make the choice of optimism and what we can do incorporate optimism into our lives.
Are You Owning Your Impact?
Each of us possesses unique abilities. My guest for today’s episode believes that we all have a fundamental right to use our ability to contribute to a higher cause than ourselves, something that goes beyond economic gain. He envisions a society in which the vast majority of individuals wake up inspired, feel at ease in their surroundings, and end the day feeling gratified by the work they do. He believes that leaders will aid us in achieving this objective. Also, he mentors and supports leaders from all walks of life committed to putting their people and mission first. Stephen Shedletzky, speaker, executive coach, and advisor, joins us to share his wisdom on leadership, culture, and, more significantly, how he assists leaders in hearing and nurturing the voice of others.
