Dealing with Mental Roadblocks
What are mental roadblocks and where do they come from? Typically 2 kinds of roadblocks when people are stuck: Bucket 1 -- Roadblocks caused by a skills or knowledge gap. Can be solved by learning skills, increase knowledge (book, video series, etc.), direction from a coach/mentor Bucket 2 -- Mental roadblocks. Happens when people HAVE the skills, resources, and knowledge already (or know what types they need) but are still stuck. Reading another book -- not going to fix the issue. Most mental roadblocks come from some combination of past experiences, the way we've interpreted past experiences, things we believe to be true, or HOW we've been handling stress. Causes of some roadblocks can date back to childhood, others are developed or deepened through life. Typically come from one or combo of 3 levels: conscious/thought roadblocks, subconscious roadblocks, conative (instinct-based) roadblocks What are some of the most common mental roadblocks that high achievers, specifically, face? 1) Subconscious isn't working for them / brain not aimed correctly / accumulated subconscious stress 2) Common belief patterns that create self-sabotage (I'm not good enough, I'm not enough, I'm not smart....) 3) Conative stress (working AGAINST their grain)What do your clients experience when you work with them to get rid of these roadblocks? We take them through a 3-level process that addresses: Subconsious. (Drain accumulated subconscious stress, aim the brain, get subsconsious working FOR you instead of against you) Conscious. Identify, then permanently eliminate the thought patterns/negative belief loops causing self sabotage and anxiety Instincts - Identify and optimize striving instincts to increase sense of flow and ease. What is your best advice for anyone listening regarding how to unblock the mental roadblocks? 1) Don't bother with affirmations -- waste of time. 2) Take the first step!! First step is awareness! So many people missing that! Jot down your thoughts for 3 days. See the repetition and the junk actually cycling around in your mind. See the assumptions and beliefs and know those are all going on in the background. 3) For people that can't work with us -- meditation is always a great tool. However, we recommend DRIFTING. If people want to learn more about you and what you do, where can they go? The new MindFix site isn't launched until later this month, so for right now, go to http://www.ErinPheil.com or connect with me at http://facebook.com/erinpheil

Lives of Doctors’ Wives
In this episode, I interview the amazing Melisa Mons who transformed a Facebook page into a movement 10,000 member strong. Hear about her journey as she along with other doctor wives friends took an online support group and turned it into the Lives of Dr. Wives Foundation http://doctorswives.org/ synopsis: began in 2009 with Melisa Mons, a wife who knew she could not be the only one on this medical journey. Soon, the group began to grow by 10, 20, 500, 1000, and now over 10,000 members worldwide. Throughout its growth needs were identified and that gave birth to our many programs. Our programs are aimed at improving the lives of our members while providing an opportunity for others to give service. Over the years our programs have impacted several of our member’s lives. Visit our testimonials page to read some of their stories. Later, the idea was raised of becoming a non-profit organization. Finally, after much consideration and research Lives of Doctors’ Wives Foundation (LDWF) was established on July 27, 2015.

Married to a Doctor- What they didn't teach you in medical school
Are you dating a medical student? Is your husband a resident or a medical doctor? Love and medicine can go together well but at the same time, can present many challenges. In this episode of Married to a Workaholic, Guy Golan interviews Lara McElderry, the host of the Married to Doctors podcast http://marriedtodoctors.com To join the married to a workaholic FB group simply go to workaholicspouse.com Guest bio: Lara McElderry studied Family and Consumer Science at the University of Arkansas, then furthered her training with a Masters Degree in Teaching. During her time at school, she supported herself as an emergency room secretary. Early in her twenties, Lara paused her training to live and work in Brazil as a missionary becoming fluent in Portuguese. Upon returning home, she taught junior high and high school English as a Second Language classes as well as Parenting, Family Dynamics, and Sexual Education. This background has helped her to parent her own five sons as her husband has been in training, currently as a surgical critical care fellow at the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque. Last fall, after moving to Albuquerque, she decided to start her own business and create a new podcast. Bouncing around topic ideas, she finally landed on what she felt she could speak to: medical marriage. Her interviews explore a range of topics including finances, communication, sex, hardships, as well as the joys and opportunities given to those married to doctors. She appreciates the wide variety of physician partners, and has interviewed stay at home moms and dads, authors, a psychiatrist, a sexologist, millionaires, and those living off student loans. Always interested in new perspectives, she continues to seek out those with unique stories and insights. When asked if it took courage to start the show, she said, “Yes, because I knew that I would become more vulnerable, and inevitably someone would judge or make assumptions about me. I decided to let people be wrong about me. I had too many questions to ask others and too many stories of my own to not share my voice.” Lara’s hope is that in her openness and willingness to begin the conversation, she strengthens families, and helps to make successful homes happier.
