#61 Taking the High Road

“We rarely get lost taking the high road” a friend said to me recently. This quote stood out from others about taking the high road because it referred to the possibility of getting lost. I never really thought about it before, but we do get lost when we react to a situation vs responding to it. We wander away from the person we want to be or become. Give yourself the mental exercise you deserve and take a listen.

#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.

An important lesson that can help us gain more clarity and lead a more peaceful life.

#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?

This attitude and recognition is so important if we want to lead a more peaceful life.
