The Modern You Podcast Episode 007: Limiting Beliefs
[tc_podcast] The Modern You Podcast Summery People have limiting beliefs in their lives because they believe they can't change them. Is that really true? So I always like to start with some good beliefs that we think would make us better but really doesn’t. Here’s a great example of a limiting belief. Imagine a world with no limitations. You could do whatever whenever you want… but so could everyone else… There would be no limitations to killing someone who made you upset, there would be no limitation on how you treated others, there would be no limitations of waiting your turn in line, and there would be no limitation go paying bills or even going to work. Want to punch someone in the face? Do it. Want to drive on the wrong side of the road? Go ahead. Want to steal your neighbors car? No problem. There are no limits. If everyone lived their life without any limits, there would be no order, no laws, nothing that would really keep you safe at home, people would run ramped down the street naked and so on. Now let's come back to reality and think about this. Why do we accept our limits? That's an obvious question now isn't it? We don't want to go to jail, have our property stolen, or die for that matter. What we want is the chance to pursuit happiness, our dreams and anything else we find along the way. So let’s go over a limiting belief that might be in your life that you probably feel right now. Do you feel an obligation to pay your bills? How about filling up your car with gas? How bout running errands? I know that you would probably like doing something else throughout the day but these are just some things we need to take care of. Now that we've gone over what beliefs can do for us and how some are just impossible to escape lets go over your beliefs that you can change right now. I want to start with the most common question I've come across. Should I quit my job? The truth is maybe you don't have too. Most people are so inclined to creating a pros and con's checklist in their head that they don't consider the other areas that they could apply themselves too. For example. If you aren't satisfied with the job you have now why not look at other areas in your job that you are interested in or haven't done before. Not everything has to be a yes or no answer. In the book Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work by Chip Heath and Dan Heath the authors give a great examples of what a person does when they are makin

The Modern You Podcast Episode 006: Learning to Forgive Something Difficult
[tc_podcast] The Modern You Podcast Summery Today on The Modern You Podcast we talk about forgiveness... Sounds like such a nasty word especially when we are upset, or know we need to forgive someone to move on. But I realized sometimes that we live with hate, sorrow and pain throughout our lives. It's very difficult to let go so today is about confronting someone who you know you need to forgive. The problem with not forgiving someone even if they don't deserve it means that you can move on with your life, you are relieving yourself of the pain that has tortured you for the past few hours or maybe years! Today is the day where you need to confront that pain - I promise it will feel like a weight has been lifted off your chest. Tips Mentioned in The Modern You Podcast: Write down what you are feeling before confronting someone this way you can actually read off what you are feeling if you "can't get your words out" Realize that you could lose the chance to forgive them - each day we take for granted who knows tomorrow might be to late Be original and put something together to give someone to remind them how much they are appreciated Being a happier and better person

The Modern You Podcast Episode 005: The Story Behind the Voice on The Modern You Podcast – Max Turner
[tc_podcast] The Modern You Podcast Summery In this episode on The Modern You Podcast I tell a story about me, Max Turner. It's a hard story to tell but nonetheless an important one. This episode is a little different from the other TMY podcasts I have recorded in the past. I will introduce the characters in this story... My mother a drug addict prostitute, Scott the twisted drug addict, my dad a drug dealer... There isn't much to say about these individuals, but I can say that they developed my focus, my love, my passion to re-create myself to be the opposite of who they had become. Here is a Awesome story... To often we find ourselves stuck, with what seems as if elephants on our backs. But it is those times in which we find ourselves stuck that we define who we are as a person. It is those times that make us stand out from everyone else, it is those times where we should focus on others rather than ourselves. I hope that with every post, podcast, and video I share you being to realize that there is much more to you than meets the eye. I may not know you, talk to you or even see you. But that doesn't matter because we all have a purpose in this world.
