Are You Holding Your Happiness Hostage?
It was a painful moment when I realized that I was living with my life on hold. Did I mean for it to happen? Of course not. Was I aware of it? No. Until I had an experience that brought it to the light of day. I was booked to be a guest on a podcast and it’s what I would call a stretch interview: not completely in my wheelhouse yet but a direction I am moving in.
Car Trouble or Opportunity?
In April and May this year, we took a 3 week road trip to visit family and during our trip, our car started making noises that became increasingly louder until I literally thought the car was going to collapse on the road. We made it to my sister Kathy’s house in Illinois and she noticed the noise (as, I’m sure all of her neighbors did because it was LOUD).
You CAN beat the clock!
I have come to realize that I have a serious problem with time. I’m always racing against it. I’m trying to go fast enough that I can “beat it.” Whatever that means. Rick and I were traveling on a 2-day road trip and we were going to stop for coffee. It was a little place that only had a drive thru. There were 4 cars in line and our immediate thought was: “We don’t have time.”
The Power of Happiness Is in Your Hands
Do you ever wonder what leads some people to be happier than others? Happiness researchers have and their findings might surprise you. Is it that some people are just naturally happier than others? While everyone does have a happiness set point, what researchers have found is that our happiness set point accounts for only 50% of our happiness.
Summer Hiatus for Interviews – Returning in the Fall
We decided to take a little hiatus this summer from the interview portion of the podcast. This will be a great opportunity to prepare for the next season of UnYielded podcast with a great lineup of guests. Meanwhile, we’ll keep in touch with our Rise & Thrive episodes every Monday.
The Difference Between Anger and Action
What can a misbehaving bull teach us about anger? Plenty. Just bear with me on this. How often have you heard someone say: “I know that I shouldn’t get angry.” I think that there is a lot of confusion around that phrase. Primarily, I think we are confusing the feeling of anger – which is a legitimate data point – with the expression of anger – which is where we can get into trouble.
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 allow ourselves the space for more gratitude. Practicing gratitude and discovering our ideal criteria for measuring success can completely transform our life.
When Interpretation Becomes a Limiting Lie
Don’t succumb to it! Don’t believe the lie embedded in our interpretations. When we believe the lie, we accept the limitation. Here’s how it happens: A simple example is that we are learning a new technology and it’s a bit challenging. A factual statement we could say is “I’m learning a new technology and I’m not completely comfortable with it yet.”
Be the Buffalo
Change is inevitable. And it can feel like a storm. When a storm is approaching, a buffalo will run towards the storm, which actually shortens the duration that the buffalo feels the effects of the storm. Cows on the other hand, run away from the storm but the storm almost always catches them, which then prolongs how long the cow is feeling the storm.
I’ll Be Happy When
In this episode I address one of the biggest lies that we tell ourselves: “I’ll be happy when .. . “ Nearly every high achiever that I’ve coached – and I’ve coached a lot of them over the years – has fallen prey to this trap. And, make no mistake, it is a trap. It keeps us stuck – but more about that in the episode.
End of the World in 2 Hours!
The saboteurs are the voices in your head that cause stress and negative emotions in response to your life’s difficulties. According to the research of Shirzad Chamine, we all have what he terms inner saboteurs. Moreover, it also incorporates neuroscience, performance science, positive psychology, and cognitive-behavioral psychology. Also, more than half a million people have already benefited from this effort. 
Lift the Veil on Your Saboteurs
Saboteurs are our automatic ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. They are our autopilot. They cause stress and negative emotions in response to your life’s difficulties. We all have them according to the research of Shirzad Chamine. His research is a synthesis of neuroscience, performance science, positive psychology, and cognitive-behavioral psychology. More than half a million people have already benefited from this effort.
Pause to Build Personal Power
Emotions are a part of who we are. If we understand our emotions and the information they provide, we can develop the most effective strategies for any situation. My guest today fosters and encourages others to pursue personal empowerment and a more serene and purposeful existence. Paige Dest, an emotional intelligence coach and founder of BYODestiny, joins us today to help us better understand and regulate our emotions to make more informed life and career decisions.
The Tetris Effect and Your Unhappiness
Remember Tetris? Amazing game, right? Surprisingly enough, researchers found a key to happiness in it. But it probably isn’t what you think! In studies, people were instructed to play Tetris for an extended period of time. At the end of the required playing time, the participants noticed that as they were out and about, they were bombarded with “Tetris shapes” everywhere:
The Power of a Personal Manifesto
Nothing will change if you go to the gym and sit next to the weight bench without lifting a single weight. Your biceps will not grow stronger if you do not lift the weight.

Mental Fitness

Your mind can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Your mind sabotages your quest for peak performance and happiness. It generates all your negative emotions through self sabotage.

The problem is we may not realize we are operating in a negative mindset because we’ve lived that way for so long. The impact of continuing this way is that we may achieve success, but we won’t find lasting happiness. Our drive to solve problems and achieve holds our happiness hostage and strains the relationships we have at home and at work.

Mental Fitness is the ability to respond to life’s challenges with a positive mindset instead of a negative, neutral or stressed mindset.
