65. Creating Higher Level Thoughts to Alleviate Social Anxiety
Most of our thoughts are prompted by our current environment, and we can’t help but think about what’s right in front of us. What we see and experience becomes what we think. The issue is our evolutionary training, or in other words, our brain’s propensity to keep us safe and out of harm’s way— and this can include showing up, speaking up, and doing things that our brain says may be scary. That is a big problem when you’re in business and you want to look good and be in the spotlight because every day your brain wants to keep you safe, but intellectually you want to excel, but you’re in a holding pattern. This week’s episode will help you better manage your mind to think better, higher quality thoughts and begin to work towards a life that is free of social anxiety.

54. Setting Big Goals to Reach "Impossible" Outcomes
Have you ever had a desire that no matter how hard you tried, you couldn’t see yourself achieving it? Successful people are relentless goal setters.

One of the most challenging goals an entrepreneur can set is promoting a product or service, particularly when accustomed to avoiding the spotlight. Just as fit people have habits surrounding eating well and exercising often, entrepreneurs and personal brands have habits surrounding self-promotion with the soft power and always identifying ways to get seen, be heard, and stand out.

53. Revealing Your Blind Spots for Deeper Self-Awareness
Self-awareness and exposing blind spots is a primary area of focus in our coaching programs. A blind spot is something about yourself and/or your actions that you don’t see clearly or are hesitant to acknowledge. Blind spots surface out of a lack of self-awareness or simply a gap in information. When you are absorbed in your own needs and concerns, you may overlook clues suggesting that others may not be eager or willing to support you or your goals. They can show up as apprehension, a lack of willingness to share opinions, or unusual aggression. When you see and feel these things happening and do not feel it is warranted, check in with your honesty stakeholders to make sure your actions are appropriate and self-aware.

47. A Case for Keeping Conversations Brief (aka How to not be a long-talker)
A common misconception is that talking ad nauseam and being long-winded makes a person appear knowledgeable, and nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, it’s often a telltale sign of nervousness and a lack of self-awareness. What happens is a thought enters your mind and before you’ve had a chance to fully process it or determine what, if anything should be said, you set off on a diatribe that includes every detail you know — and that’s overkill. And everyone recognizes it, except unfortunately the person committing the transgression. Today’s episode is all about creating clarity with conversation points and how to be both brief and the most interesting person in the room.
