190) David Gardner Interview - The Big Jump!
Today on the Art of Likability, I'm happy to welcome David Gardner from the Big Jump Podcast and ColorJar Brand Consulting and Design onto the show! David also happens to be a 6'9" former professional basketball player and a D-I athlete at Dartmouth. From discussion of stereotypical "broke athletes" who blow their sports earnings after finishing up their playing days to other athletes who take on the business world, this episode is all about reinvention and renewal. Certainly athletes must go through reinvention at a young age, but what about the rest of us? We must know how to reinvent ourselves too in a time when it's common for people to have 10 jobs over a lifetime (and that number is climbing)! Come make the Big Jump with David Gardner and me on the latest, freshest episode of the Art of Likability!

188) Darryl Strawberry Interview
Today on the Art of Likability, I'm overjoyed to have minister Darryl Strawberry dish on overcoming addiction and helping others to do the same. Darryl is a minister now, and in a previous life he was a Major League Baseball All-Star and World Series Champion for the New York Mets and the New York Yankees. Away from the baseball diamond, Darryl had to go through life problems like everyone else. He could swing a bat with the best of them, but it was infinitely tougher to step up to the plate against his inner addiction demons...until he did. This is Darryl's story of how he was reborn from his previous life as a supremely talented yet immature athlete to a grown man of God, spreading the good word on beating back addiction. Remember: You Are Awesome! -Arel

187) How to Have REAL Joy
Ever catch yourself wishing you had 500,000 Instagram followers, or dreaming that you were richer than some other person? These thoughts bring angst and take away from enjoying life; they really do. I think it's odd that we tend to focus on what we lack rather than what we have. And if you think about what you have, oh boy. The inherent value of what you have is immense. Your smartphone, computer, home, cash on hand, medical care, even the access to clean drinking water. Jump in with me to the latest episode of the Art of Likability, where we realize that you're probably richer than you're letting on, and how we can have REAL joy from this revelation. Please help to spread this message by leaving a review and a 5-star rating, if you enjoyed this message! Remember: You Are Awesome!

186) The Insider Secret of High Performers
Everyone's always talking about networking, forming new connections and new business opportunities. I get it: new and exciting is...new and exciting!

In this episode of the Art of Likability, we divulge the insider secret to your network that is staring you in the face. That's really all there is to it: Your Network. Please let me know what you think of this episode and remember to like and subscribe! This helps us to grow our audience and message. Remember: You Are Awesome! -Arel

185) How to Create Win-Wins in Your Life
With the Art of Likability, we know that our relationships are one of our most valuable resources. They come with a lot of potential for growth, but they also come with potential for conflict. In an argument, many people automatically are looking to impose their worldview and win over the other person, but that only causes long-term resentment. Never mind that the other person is looking to win over you as well! That makes win-lose situations, which is a low-value proposition for everyone here in the Art of Likability Community. Some people even go for lose-lose scenarios, even worse! In this episode of the Art of Likability, we discuss how to avoid those pitfalls and orchestrate a win-win for everyone! Smooth over conflict and maintain a great relationship. Curious? Let's jump in...

In this episode of the Art of Likability, I discuss my process for overcoming resistance in order to get done the things I need to get done!

183) Ask This One Question to Connect and Learn!
Isn't it great how our world is such an interesting world? Too bad we don't have all the time to experience 100% of it. More realistic is to live and learn vicariously through our friends and our networks! In this episode of the Art of Likability, we talk about one question that helps you to connect with someone and get a little bit of their perspective! "What's one takeaway you got from the experience?" Here's one takeaway I got from a friend: As an extra bonus to this episode, you'll also hear about a quick tip on what contributes to arthritis/joint pain and what to do about it! How did I learn this? I eat my own cooking and used the question in this podcast! Have yourself some of this cooking and remember: YOU ARE AWESOME! -Arel

182) When You Fail, Listen to This
Failure happens, and it's something we learn to deal with as we go up and down on the rollercoaster of life. If you listen to the Art of Likability, you're the kind of person who's already heard the idea that failures are teaching experiences. We're not here to reiterate that idea. This episode of the Art of Likability focuses on the language you use with failure, specifically the one thing you should never say about failure. Let's jump in, and remember: You Are Awesome! -Arel

181) A Super Simple Way to Look More Attractive
Should you go to the gym, or put on makeup to look more attractive? Those are great ideas, but that's not the focus of today's episode on the Art of Likability!

Let me just pull you aside for a quick moment and let's talk breathing through your nose and how helpful it is! Leave breathing through the mouth for...the mouth-breathers (See what I did there?)!

180) How to Get Over Fear the Right Way
"How did you get over your fears?" This is one question I often get, in one form or another. Whether it's the fear of starting a new relationship, the fear of success, the fear of failure, the fear of putting in effort and resources towards improving yourself... Fear is always there. Most people's first reaction with fear is to control it, to deny its existence outright. In this episode of the Art of Likability, we move beyond the first reaction to a more seasoned reaction with fear: working with it, instead of trying to wrestle with it. Check out the seasoning in this "seasoned reaction" and pair that with YOUR AWESOMESAUCE! -Arel

177) Becoming the Superconnector with Scott Gerber
Imagine a stereotypical networking event. Go in, talk to 200 people, walk out with 200 business cards. Success? Hold it. Scott Gerber of the Young Entrepreneur Council and author of fresh off the press thoughtpiece Superconnector: Stop Networking and Start Building Relationships that Matter connects with us today on our show, the Art of Likability. In a modern world built upon sales, leads, and convert, convert, convert, Scott wants to reintroduce the idea of human connection. Instead of creating a business card collection (like a stamp collection) like a networker, Scott recommends you to become a connector instead. When some can only see the immediate lead from a business card, a connector sees multiple steps ahead: the relationships that blossom from genuine human connection. Jump into today's episode and become the likable connector you can become!

176) How Alive Are You Really?
"Going through the motions of life." I don't think any of us want to feel like we're move from day to day without any clear goal or reward. We want to feel motivated, driven...alive!

In this episode of the Art of Likability, we talk about four methods you can use to avoid drifting purposelessly, to avoid feeling like you're floating through life...to feel alive!

175) How to Talk About Difficult Topics
Politics. Religion. Personal views. All taboo topics in our America today, and everyone is told to avoid those topics when they can. Even calling out someone for being late becomes a touchy topic. As touchy as these are, skirting these topics won't lead to the change you want to see in the world. You can't just let someone come late to work all the time. Should you find it necessary to discuss these matters, what is the diplomatic and likable way to handle the situation? In today's episode of the Art of Likability, we go over a common reaction to taboo topics and the likable way to handle such conversations. This episode is sponsored by Freshbooks!

172) Dealing with Criticism
In today's episode of the Art of Likability, we lay out a three-step process for dealing with criticism. You hear it, I hear it, we all hear criticism. Just a fact of the everyday world-it happens as if it's automatic. What's also automatic for a lot of people is their reaction to criticism. Most will automatically focus on their failures and magnify them. It's almost like a natural reaction! Our three step process for dealing with criticism discusses this "natural reaction" and aims to circumvent it by installing habits of being grateful. Jump in and see what you think!
