#57 Actions Speak Louder than Words

We’ve all heard this expression countless times. But have you ever really thought about your words and your actions towards others? We could have the best intentions with our words but our actions may not be demonstrating this. In this week’s episode I give examples and encourage you to stretch your mind and really look within to whether your actions are reflecting your words.

#55 HE WHO ANGERS YOU CONTROLS YOU

This week’s quote is about the control we give to others when we are angry with them. It is totally normal to get mad at others, but when we stew in our anger, when we give our precious time discussing with others what someone said or did to anger us, we are giving them control over us. Learn how to have more peace and be in control of YOU.

#54 HALT

HALT is an acronym that stands for Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired. In this week’s podcast I encourage you to stretch your mind and think about referring to this acronym before you make any decisions. If you are one of the four adjectives, or a combination of them, then HALT. Do not take action, until you take care of yourself first. An important lesson that can help us gain more clarity and lead a more peaceful life.

#53 Disagreements

“We need to get along with others even though we disagree with others”. In this weeks podcast we stretch our minds and really think about why we often have a hard time doing this. Why, when others do not agree with us, do we have such a hard time accepting this fact and moving forward? Listen and learn how we can we get along with others that don’t share our viewpoint. It’s not as hard as you may think and it’s all totally up to you—you hold the Power!

#46 Acceptance of Things we cannot Change

How often do you spend trying to change someone else? Are you able to believe and accept the fact that the only person you can change is yourself? A friend of mine recently said “I can’t change it, I can only do my best with it” when talking about a family members personality trait. This attitude and recognition is so important if we want to lead a more peaceful life. Listen to this weeks podcast and stretch your mind to think about this and how you can bring more peace to your life by adopting this mantra when dealing with others.
