135: Remix: Why it’s ok to be wrong and what’s intellectual humility?!
Ooooh yeah! We are remixing a popular episode (75!) and updating it with an awesome study about intellectual humility! What’s that?! Listen up! You’re gonna love it! And before you snap back, "THERE'S NO WAY I'M WRONG!" Haha, this episode is intended to break your brain open a bit! We're talking about why it feels wrong to be wrong, but how being wrong can lead to so many wonderful things that are right! One huge takeaway from this episode is an exercise asking you to question if you're wrong about yourself, what you can do and what you are capable of! And not in the, "You can't do it..." way, but in the, "But what if you can?!" So go on a philosophical journey through time and space with us and see if you can't find some solutions or a little bit of awesome in thinking about your current life shtuff in a new way! I hope you love it!

Ep. 134: What’s on the inside will come out!
Listen, I know what it’s like to feel at your complete wits end. To have voices from every direction telling you that to feel better and be who you want to be, what you need to do is never give up, change, and just try a little harder. And how that can make you want to cry because you’re already trying as hard as you can! That’s not the point of this episode (or anything I do)! The point of this episode is to help you think about what you actually want to carry each day, what you want to be filled with, and to give you a few simple ideas for how to do it! So you can feel a little more awesome than you did before. Not worse! Just a tiny bit better, possibly! Give it a try! You’re doing a really good job!
