Fulfillment in Your Work
Today on the show we're talking about fulfillment in your work and how I continue to assess that moving forward. I think about the internet constantly, how I'm presenting myself and how I'm selling. Every once in a while I feel like I get into a place where I'm going backwards, feeling pressure to post and fill my head with all sorts of "should" statements in relation to what others say marketing is or should be. I find that I start to become a little pushy and it feels gross when you're consumed by the notion of creating "content" versus creating for yourself. That's essentially what we're breaking down today on DOPEamine! Brand Blaster Course: http://www.bit.ly/brandblaster

Happy Thanksgiving! | Family Holiday Obligations
Today on the show we're talking about giving my personal thanks to our listeners and also addressing some of the difficulties that come with family dynamics around the holidays. It can be an absolute challenge to connect with our family, sometimes they ask probing questions, they don't approve of our life choices or they're just plain annoying. We talk about how you don't even have to go, you can protect your energy and it doesn't have to be a time in which you become a punching bag.

Adjustments
Today on the show we're talking about making adjustments. The adjustments I'm making to this show, my life and business in 2019 but also the little tweaks we can make every day to get a better sense of how we're using our time and energy.

Stan Lee: The Greatest Lesson
Stan Lee was one of the greatest storytellers of our time and easily one of the greatest men who ever lived. He never held back from being himself and sharing that with the world. He brought his personality into everything and so eloquently married the real with the fantastical. We all have been affected by him and how he shaped reality in the last century. This episode is for him. Thank you, Stan, for everything. Excelsior!

Connections Through Vulnerability
Today on the show we're talking about connecting with others through your vulnerability whether that's personally or professionally. We can feel quite isolated when we're dealing with mental health challenges and don't know how to connect with people. Small talk takes too much energy and sometimes we don't want to talk about ourselves too much. Finding a way to empathize or connect with others is a beautiful way of both sharing your story and creating a new wonderful connection with someone who can support you, listen to you and respect your journey.

Unlearning Perceptions
Today on the show we're talking all about unlearning perception. What does that mean? That means, that over time we've accumulate all sorts of ideas about what the ideal human should be in a given situation. If you've dealt with any mental health difficulties or disabilities then you'll be familiar with this feeling. I talk with Brian King all about unlearning these perceptions from others that we put into our minds that keep us from the making the proper adjustments we need to make in order to grow as a person and build the life we want to live.

Small Talk
Today on the show we're talking all about Small Talk and the power of the skill in relation to social exploration and your mental health. We all seek some sense of connection and in order to get a more meaningful connection we need to use some semblance of small talk as a means to figure people out a bit before we approve or dismiss of someone. There are skills that you can learn to improve the skill over the time, which I feel are imperative for individual growth.

I'm Not Very Interesting
Today on the show I'm addressing a statement that I hear quite often from artists and designers, "I'm Not Interesting..." It is quite frustrating to see as I continue through my own development because it's something that I feel I've got a good handle on these days. I know the pain and difficulty of comparison, of being stuck in your head and not feeling like you have something to offer but we absolutely all do. We get beat down by life or compare ourselves to those who had a better starting line. At the end of the day we need to trust what we know and love about ourselves, to put it out there and gain insight from what we share but not take that feedback as something we HAVE to apply. This is our life, we can take control of it. http://www.dopeamine.life http://www.bit.ly/cnotedoor

Abundance and Community
Today on the show we're talking all about community and abundance. Abundance being the concept of there being enough clientele to go around and to wall ourselves off from other creatives is to isolate ourselves when we need support. There are times when we need the support of other creatives to fulfill the needs of our clients while we take of ourselves and building community is the best way to do that. We talk about the concept entitlement as well and how expecting too much of yourself also leads to burnout and mistreatment of ourselves. http://www.dopeamine.life http://www.bit.ly/cnotedoor

Mentor Boundaries and Giving Advice
Today on the show we're talking all about boundaries for asking and giving advice. Many young people are looking for mentors to help them through life and it's a challenge to find someone who has the time, cares or can even answer their questions. That can lead to desperation or eagerness on the part of the one seeking advice. It's important to have patience and realize that you've got time to figure things out. The same goes for the mentor, protecting your time is key but not so much that you can't help people with a quick response. There's no need for paywalls on helping each other whenever possible. http://www.dopeamine.life http://www.bit.ly/cnotedoor

Health and Fame
Today on the show we're talking all about health and fame. Two separate topics that all equate to a healthy perspective on you as the most important part of your life. Being health is about you and becoming famous is not what it used to be. You have all of the possibilities in the world to show off your potential more than ever before and no longer do you need to appeal to the mass market to be famous. But to be famous to someone still yields its rewards, whether it's a listener, a client or a friend. Perception is everything.

Making Space for Your Partner
Today on the show we're talking about making space for your partner, family, business partners and all others in your life. One of my goals of this show and in life is to find the most effective ways to meet people where they are instead of trying to adapt people to who I am or what I want them to be. It's a very difficult ongoing challenge, especially with the mental illness issues that I face.

Getting Out of Your Head
Today on the show we're talking about getting out of your head. When we're dealing with mental illness or any stress we tend to ruminate on what's going on and frankly, we won't learn anything new that way most of the time. So, it's important for us to find ways to get out of our own head. That doesn't mean ignoring your problems but finding a friend to connect with, go see the barista down the street, ask someone how they're doing, engage in small talk, play a fun game with people or something simple that gets you to engage with something other than yourself. Chances are you can gain some new information to take with you when you re-enter your own head-space.

Repeated Traumas and Revisiting Complex PTSD
Today on the show we're talking all about Complex PTSD. I've been in the rebuilding phase of my last over the past year and that is all associated with C-PTSD traumas that I've been fighting on two fronts. The past associated with my parents and the more recent past associated with my marriage and emotional abuse. I remind you of what C-PTSD is and then share my story, where I am now and how understanding the details of what is occurring helps me to retain some optimism for the future.

You Get What You Put Out Into the World
Today on the show we're talking about the notion of getting what you put out into the world. Not that you should do so with expectation but that if you're putting out bad vibes, surrounding yourself with toxic people or simply anyone who doesn't align with your life path then they have no reason for being there. It can be difficult to sever these attachments but it can be pivotal for our personal growth. I also talk about my personal growth this week, asking for my help, my ideology development and the challenges I face emotionally about not seeing my son. All of it is a massive challenge that I think is worth undertaking in this week's episode of DOPEamine!

Today on the show we're talking about asking for help. It started out as a conversation with myself about the current desperation that I'm feeling but quickly translated into a realization that I've had a terrible time with asking for help. My mental health is not in the best place so it's a bit of a somber episode. I'm having trouble knowing what to do with my current issues, so thank you for your patience and continuing to be a loyal listener of DOPEamine.

One More Pushup
Today on the show we're talking about avoiding conflict, addressing my personal fears and my own personal accountability. I need to do more and I know I need to do more. This lifestyle I've been cultivating is a largely a fantasy that isn't matching up to reality and for the things that are actually working to not come crashing down, I need to man-up and own that I need to work smarter and harder to achieve what I want to achieve. It's going to take a little more work. Less excuses that I've been blocking myself from acknowledging and continuing to hold my self ACTUALLY accountability. I get real vulnerable on this episode in a way that I haven't done in quite some time. I'm hoping this episode is a turning point.

Obsession
Today on the show we're talking about Obsession. I've been thinking about it because I'm re-approaching mania and that, for me, is one of the symptoms that comes to light. I become obsessed with other people being accurate in their assertions that I become combative with those around me. I certainly like a good debate and I have no qualms about correcting someone but when I become obsessed it hurts, it takes me times and ultimately it's a distracted from real emotional issues that I have to deal with. So, I break a lot of that down as I also start to break down on this episode of DOPEamine. Support the show: http://www.dopeamine.life The Boss Project Summit: http://www.bit.ly/cnotesummit

Challenging Your Ideology
Today on the show we're talking all about ideology. We very much get caught up in the big picture of what we think is happening, might happen or want to happen. It's another way of both tempering expectations but also taking stock in what you can actually control. How can you actually make those big dreams a reality instead of letting them sit in the clouds all the time? What can we do to bring them to life? Just a warning of sensitivity that this episode will be addressing religion, politics, relationships and career advice in regards to questioning our ideology. The overall tone is a bit aggressive as well. Still with me? Great! Then let's do this on today's episode of DOPEamine!

It was around this time in 2017 in which I had just left my previous marriage, left San Diego, left my job and started a new life. It was a scary journey and a risky decision to leave. I talk all about what I learned on that solo drive, the mental difficulties and whether or not I'd do it again. There are great lessons here about soaking it all in, documenting your experience, experiencing life with people you care about, meeting new people and the power of having to sit in silence.

Managing Consistency with Mental Illness
Today on the show we're talking all about consistency in business, in relation to mental health. It's a major issue in today's world for people to put so many expectations on themselves because there are so many external representations of what "SHOULD" be that challenge our every day needs. We're going to have days where we crash, don't feel well, need self-care and have to make it all stop. Setting ourselves up with too rigid of a structure, depending on your personality type, can be detrimental to our need for self-care. We need to trust the patterns we see within ourselves, cut ourselves a break and distance ourselves from content creation FOMO.

Losing Subscribers
Today on the show we're talking about losing subscribers. Those of us who are trying to do business online can sometimes fall into a difficult trap of associating our identity to how many people follow us. There are a few things to consider when we're looking at that drop in numbers. What is causing? Can we get more accurate data? Is it us or are they a fake account being removed? Either way, that has no bearing on your love for the process. What you do is more important than what you get out of it. It's going to keep you moving to understand why you're even doing something. So, if you're tripped up by that then slow down, take a moment and think about where to go next. You got this on this episode of DOPEamine!

Casual Use of Psychological Terminology
Today on the show we're talking about two topics that work well together. General ignorance in modern society and the casual use of psychological terminology as a means to boost the severity of someone's feelings and simultaneously the severity of others. Much of this happens subconsciously so I understand that it's a difficult discussion to have but the point is that we should strive to have more accurate conversations with terminology that moves that conversation forward without having to navigate emotional triggers in every direction. OCD, Anxiety and depression are more severe than it's every day casual usage. Support this show at http://www.dopeamine.life Meet the host: http://www.cnote.media

Being Starstruck
Today I wanted to talk about this concept of being starstruck by other people. Particularly looking up to famous people and assuming that they're instantly better than you, you'll never be that and letting it affect your self-esteem in a major way. In reality, we are all on different paths with different goals and different starting lines. So comparison is illogical and useless. The same goes for anyone who it good. Who is doing well in life. It's not an excuse to project that you're better than anyone or to let yourself get too comfortable and forget that you still have a long life to live.

L’Appel Du Vide: The Call of the Void
Today on the show we're talking about The Call of the Void. This is a concept that many us has experienced. We stand close to the of a build or a cliff, perfectly safe with no intention to jump but we get this startling realization that if we don't actively tell ourselves not to jump that we may have actually jumped. This isn't exclusive to heights, many have experienced this sensation of wanting to jump in front of a train or ram your car into the side of the road or even run someone over. This, as far as we know, isn't exclusive to mental illness. So, we ask some tough questions about humanity in this episode and the subconscious questions that we ask ourselves every day and how the call of the void may be an active moment in that process.

I Was Stuck in My INTP Inferior Fe
Today on the show we're talking about what I've been going through the last week. I've been dealing with a lot of intense stress around money but have also completely given into being too preoccupied with other people's emotions. As an INTP, that is not a playing field I succeed in. If anything, it leads me down a path of absurd thinking that essentially leads to devalue emotions. Mostly because emotions just don't work well for me in the long run. So, as an INTP, I need to acknowledge that my inferior trait Fe (Extroverted Feeling) should not be running the show.

The Edge of Destruction
Today on the show we're talking being at the edge of destruction. I feel like some of my episodes lately haven't about me and what I'm going through, so I figured today was the perfect opportunity to work through those feelings. It's not always easy for me to exhibit emotional expression, it's a challenge and it's difficult to continue to feel like I have the room to express what I need to express. So, I created this show for that reason and am going to use it for that reason. I talk a bit about suicidal ideation, troubles with my past, relationships, workplace frustrations, feeling like a burden and all of the learning I've been doing to try and better understand what I need to do. So, this episode gets pretty heavy, as a warning, but it's reality. It's where I am (a week ago when I recorded it). It's what I'm going through, it's honest and I don't think there's enough "content" out there exhibiting and showing that. So, here it goes. Thanks for being here.

Making Fun of People
Today on the show we're talking about Making Fun of People. Humans be humans and we all have a story. Some of us are caught in a vulnerable state, turned into memes or viral videos. Some of us don't want that. Some people are simply trying to live their lives to the best of their ability. I've been guilty of taking photos of some "weird" person in the past and posting it with the hopes of making myself subconsciously feel better or elitist about my position in life. It's not cool.

You Know Nothing
Today on the show we're talking about the concept of knowing nothing. As we get older, past our teenage years and into our 30s we can't help this feeling of knowing nothing. We are exposed to new ideas, new people, new environments all the time and simply feel as though there is no way we could know everything or anything. It can become a little absurd.

Manifesting Success
Today on the show we're going to talk about the concept of manifesting success. What does it mean to manifest something in your life? To visualize a goal and achieve? Can there be an unhealthy version of that? We ask that questions and play with this idea of "The Progress Wheel" as a means to know if you're working towards something or simply being entitled to an affirmation you're giving yourself. I'm starting on this concept today, so bare with me on this episode of DOPEamine! Support the show: http://www.dopeamine.life Learn about the host: http://www.cnote.media

Male Body Image Issues
Today on the show we're talking about male body image issues and how that affects confidence. In relation to a lot of this week's topics, men aren't very open about their emotional state but particularly aren't open about how they feel physically. We see portrayals of men in media has having perfect faces, bodies, fighting ability, having stuff and getting all the girls. Well, that's enough. You, as a man, can take charge of the things you can control. You can improve your situation but it's about incremental growth and managing your expectations. Essentially turning your expectations into aspirations so they remain healthy and change with the variables of life. So, put down that donut cause we're getting our shit together today on DOPEamine!

The Patriarchy
Today on the show we're talking about "The Patriarchy" as a mean to define the term but also share a bit of the general male perspective behind the emotions involved with making such a massive social change. Essentially I want to use this week's theme as a means to encourage those to get on board with understanding that males are imperative to the growth of humanity and it's not about uneven land grab. It's not about women wanting to take over so much as it is about equal rights. Men also have fears associated with change, insecurities with lifting up their partners socially and it all comes down to personal growth.

Alpha
Today on the show we're kicking off this week's topic, which is the Male Experience. I'm taking this as an opportunity to share my thoughts on being a male in today's world of social change, media perception, what men should take more responsibility for and that being a man is still something to be proud of and respected as long as you're being respectful of the people in your life. Specifically today we're talking alpha males and the perception of alpha males actually being a beta male experience. Beta males are typically more boastful and do so due to their insecurities. It's a vie for status in a world that doesn't require it so intensely but we partake in it anyway because of our natural primal tendencies. Frankly, being alpha takes work but not as much as you think. So suit up, let's get all up in this episode of DOPEamine!

The Racial Divide

More specifically the divide that is happening in our country and how the conflict model we've been working through can be used to identify how progress can be made. It might get a little heated in here but not really. This isn't about being outraged or calling anyone out. This is an attempt at an objective perspective on what is going on and how we can move things forward in a positive direction. I think I addressed the issues as best as I could and I hope you can join me in this discussion with an open mind to help take all of us into the next stage of growth as a community and a country.

Patience with Development Diversity
Today on the show we're talking about having patience with development diversity. Essentially saying that it is helpful for us as individuals to understand that many people in our lives are learning things, experiencing things and expressing things from varying stages of personal development. That by acknowledging that someone is working through their own things at their own pace we can learn to have more patience to let them work through what they need to work through. This isn't universal, it's not an excuse to allow abuse nor is it an excuse to be elitist about your stage of development. It is not about one person being better than the other but acknowledging and respecting everyone's journey.

Internet Conflict
Today on the show we're talking about internet conflict, how it applies to the model I've been working through and how to resolve some internet. Often we end up leaving internet conflict with unresolved issues that we take with us into our every day life. Our family and friends get the brunt of that force that was triggered by someone else. This feeling can be very frustrating to work through. We also take that feeling and associate it loosely with people of other similar types. We end creating caricatures of people instead of treating each other as individuals. There's a lot to break down here so join me for this angst-filled episode of DOPEamine!

The 3 Yous
Today we're talking about The 3 Yous, a concept that I came across on a Reddit thread that was meant to help someone get out of a motivational rut. What I love about this concept is that it externalizes your behavior towards yourself. By thinking about your future self as someone you're helping out and someone who is your best friend, you'll be more likely to do things now in service of that person's success. Even so, if you don't fulfill what you would like to, your present self should be ready and willing to forgive your past self so that you can move forward.

Personal Development and Elitism
Today on the show we're talking about the confusion and perceptions that come from being immersed in personal development. Many of us are dealing with people in our lives judging us for so many little things, mostly due to their own insecurity, and we shouldn't let it affects but sometimes it does. That's reality. You'll reach a point in your growth that may take you away from what people are used to. They may start saying that you're too good for them or that they don't understand you anymore. Truth is, many of us are growing and developing because we have to. That's the difference we're going to talk about today.

Putting People on a Pedestal
Today on the show we're talking about putting people on a pedestal and how that can have negative affects on your self-esteem. It's amazing to have people to admire but when create arbitrary measurements of value we then put ourselves into that equation as well, which runs the risk of measuring ourselves as less than important. We become nervous around those we admire, we can potentially feel unworthy of the same success or feel that we don't deserve what we want.

Thoughts and Prayers
Today on the show we're talking about that common phrase known as "Thoughts and Prayers." How does that relate to mental health? Well, simply, it's a coping mechanism. There are difficult things that go on in the world and we need ways to move forward. But I also understand the cynicism behind it. It can feel like a blanket statement that absolves someone of personal responsibility. From all angles, we can do better and that's why we're here.

Male to Male Abuse (Trigger Warning)
Today on the show we're talking about male to male abuse, specifically sexual abuse. Much of the male experience is dominated by other men trying to show their dominance or "alpha" attitudes towards one another. Some of the time that translates into sexual abuse as a show of physical power or perceived playfulness. The usual "It was a joke" or "no homo" is applied to soften the blow. Society doesn't help much as prison rape is often the butt of many jokes. So we talk about that quite a bit and break down the male side of the #MeToo story from the perspective of Terry Crews and Brendan Fraser.

Targeting Depression in Marketing
Today on the show we're talking about celebrating the 200th episode of the show! It's been a long journey to get this point and I wanted to celebrate that with a whole lot of thank yous! We're also talking about targeting depression in marketing. Many life coaches, health and wellness types and amateur mental health speakers can misinterpret depression as sadness, guilt, lack of motivation and grief. So, marketers see that as an opportunity for change and start using phrasing like "I can cure your depression" which is a very dangerous phrase. So, watch out life coaches...I'M COMING FOR YA!

Bob is the product of a difficult youth but with natural ambition to create his own path he was able to take charge of his life and create a new life for himself. Through persistence and a drive to be something more than destiny had in story for him, he made every effort to build something for himself. He's since done that multiple times and now coaches others on how they can define their own success and create that success. We had an amazing conversation about all of those topics and more.

Mental Illness and Violence
Today on the show we're talking about a pretty heavy topic. We're discussing Mental Illness and Violence. Specifically we're discussing domestic violence and the excuses that both parties make for the continued behavior. Whether it's love, the perception of love, upbringing or other external factors that are keeping people from learning about themselves...it's important to realize that abuse always involves having to take personal responsibility for your behavior. Mental illness is not an excuse to be a jerk. Mental illness can accentuate bad behavior but it does not cause it. I get a bit harsh on this episode, so trigger warning for the topic and my tone of voice. Strap in cause it's going to be a bumpy ride on this episode of DOPEamine!

Apathetically Social
Today on the show we're talking about apathy with being social. Many of us are introverts, many of us don't have the energy to deal with many aspects of the outside world. So, should we feel terrible about that? The short answer is NO! We shouldn't ever feel bad about the boundaries we need to employ. But it's also not always that easy because we don't want to shun ourselves completely from the outside world. So, don't worry, we'll talk all about it on the latest episode of DOPEamine!

As we wrap up MBTI week and finish our promotion of the Super Myers-Briggs Turbo EX course, we find ourselves starting to get into the advanced sections of the course.

MBTI: What is Intuition?
Today on day 3 of MBTI week we're talking about Intuition. What is it? What does it mean to be an intuitive? Specifically, intuitive means you're an intuitive learner because intuition versus sensing is all about learning style, which is about you take in (perceive) information. There's a mysterious aire to intuition thought that's mostly because there is a swath of subconscious pattern recognition going on. So put on your thinking cap and get ready to learn something on today's episode of DOPEamine! More episodes: http://www.dopeamine.life Courses: http://www.cnote.media

MBTI: "Ambiverts"
As we continue MBTI week, we're next going to talk about the concept of Ambiverts and how it has led to some identity confusion. People tend to dismiss MBTI because they only see the surface level concepts and don't take the time to learn that Myers-Briggs covers the concept of ambiversion. Each of us has two introverted and extroverted traits, it's just a matter of how we prioritize them. So, identifying yourself as an ambivert is good for development but also inaccurate and that's what we're here to break down. So chill out, grab a beverage and join us for the next episode of DOPEamine! More Episodes: http://www.dopeamine.life Courses: http://www.cnote.media

The course is called Super Myers-Briggs Turbo EX and is the advanced course for MBTI understanding. Today we're covering the topic of Figuring Out Your Type because it can be a little confusing.

Learning Styles and Mental Health
Today on the show we're talking about learning styles and mental health. I talk a bit about my past as a difficult learner and how I've been able to take the reigns as an adult to figure out ways to nurture my intelligence without feeling like I'm not able to keep up with the expectations of others. Learning my own style of acquiring information has allowed me to make for lost time in a school system that wasn't focused on my individual needs, which absolutely had a negative effect on my upbringing and social life. I'm sure many of you out there feel the same. So let's gather around the fire and get set for a story of childhood educational difficulty on this episode of DOPEamine.

Survival Bias
Today on the show we're talking about the concept of survival bias. What does that mean? It's what successful happen to fall into occasionally when they reach a level of success and start sharing advice with others. This means they may start ignoring certain aspects that led to their success and trying to pass that off as the only way to succeed. It can have negative effects as it can make you feel inadequate when you don't reach the same level of success quickly. Get set for a realtalk episode of DOPEamine!

Failure is Feedback
Today on the show we talk about failure and all of the emotional components that come with it. For most part, failure is a very emotional experience for ourselves and those around us. We experience shame, sadness, depression and defeat at the hands of failure but when it's all said and done it helps us most to look at failure as a means for us to move forward. Failure provides us with feedback for what we've just experienced in order to learn from it. Knowing this phrase "Failure is Feedback" can help when looking back at failures and comparing it to where you are today. Dust your shoulders off and get ready for the latest episode of DOPEamine!

Therapy is important for assessing your mental state and making sense of the past while coaching can be an important aspect of moving forward when you're feeling stuck. Like most things it is up to the individual and their personal needs. So sit on the couch and let it all out on the latest episode of DOPEamine!

Independence
Today on the show we're talking about individualism. What does it take to be your own person? Does that always involve being the lone wolf? The short answer is no, you can be a part of a group or community and still be an individual but it's a matter of determining whether or not that community is true to your values and gives you the opportunities you're looking for.

Partnering to Improve Weaknesses
Today on the show I talk about working with a partner to improve your weaknesses (and strengths). That means working with your relationship partner, business partner, coach or therapist to assess your personal development journey and gain some perspective from someone else on how you can grow as a person. For me, that has been improving my emotional state and being more empathetic to others. To be honest, other people's emotions are my least favorite thing in the world. They're frustrating and feel like a waste of time for me but being in a relationship with a feeling type who can speak the same development language as me has given me the opportunity to improve in that area.

Holistic Cognition
Today on the show I wanted to talk about the concept that I've been developing called "Holistic Cognition." It's meant as a way for someone like me, who doesn't have a faith and doesn't really agree with the current labeling of spirituality as anything I personally resonate with. So, throughout the show I talk about my relationship with religion, how it has been difficult for me to grasp and respect throughout my life and how it is now something that I've been able to apply to my life in ways that are still respectful to my individuality and strengths in being a logical thinker type of person.

Personal Development is Personal
Today on the show I'm talking about the personal aspect of personal development. Meaning, that it is your personal responsibility to foster you're own growth. One of the key items that I talk about on this is taking personal responsibility for your emotions, your reactions, your environment and every aspect of your life that you can. So today, that is all going to translate into your personal development journey. That means researching items in ways that you know how, learning to ask the right questions and take ownership for everything that is happening...good or bad.

ADHD Misconceptions
Today on the show I wanted to talk about ADHD misconceptions. Like many conditions, there is a public perception that often gets in the way of progress from a societal perspective but also hinders individual growth. Some people may oppose a diagnosis because of the public perception, for example. So I wanted to talk about ADHD in particular because it is an avenue that I'm personally starting to explore as I dive further into my personal development journey. A lot of things match up for me. So, I wanted to share what I've been learning, how that connects to me and my growth and hopefully teach you something that you didn't know about ADHD.

Humility
Today on the show I wanted to talk about Humility and how it's especially important on our self development journey. Many aspects of self-development will teach you how to be confident but it can be easy to overlook how helpful it is to keep some of the confidence in-check in a healthy way. That means asking yourself questions and considering that what you know is all that you know. There will always been new information out there and it is important to be receptive to that new information to grow and develop as a person.

Let's talk about what to consider when applying a hustle mindset to your life and considering whether or not it's something you even need in your life.

Trolls and Negative Feedback
You know how it goes as a creator, an artist, or a public persona...there are going to be haters if you're good enough at something. That's just what happens as you start to gain notoriety for the thing that you're doing but since you may not have any experience with it...what do you do? How you approach handling those types of people without being a jerk, hiding any feedback and truth from your audience, or letting it put you into a depressive spiral? I talk about the different kind of feedback that you'll get as you put your work out there and ways that you can deal with it. Mostly giving you the permission anything that is meant to burn down the house that you're building. I also talk about constructive feedback and how that comes into play.

Breaking The Cycle of Abuse
Today on the show we're talking about breaking the cycle of abuse. It's an episode focused on helping former abusers understanding how they can stop being an abuser and also not be susceptible to abuse themselves. I specifically talk about it in the context of romantic relationships but it can apply to family or work dynamics as well, in some cases. I talk about how romantic relationships are about 3 entities, not 2...you, your partner and the relationship. I talk a bit about control and how that affects relationships along with projections of insecurity.

Celebrity Deaths
Today on the show I wanted to talk a heavy but important topic: Celebrity Deaths. With the recent passing of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, the internet is agape with the shock of frustration of losing two important people in the world. With that frustration comes additional frustrations from the responses from the crowd. From the ignorant to the unhelpful, we breakdown the different types of responses and how even you can have an impact on your immediate support system. The point of this show is to share how only sharing the suicide hotline isn't enough for us to contribute to the well-being of the human race.

Thinking and Feeling
Today on the show I wanted to talk about Thinking and Feeling. I wanted to talk about this concept in abstract terms but mentions of Myers-Briggs does come up. It's the inspiration for this episode. Thinking and Feeling is often thought of Thinking vs. Feeling. Thinking being in reference to analytical thinking and Feeling more focused on emotions. Often they are at odds but in this episode we talk about the difference along with how we bridge the gap to help ourselves think or feel a little better in given scenarios or to better understand someone who uses the opposite function more often. I think it's an interesting show and I hope you enjoy it as well! More episodes: http://www.dopeamine.life Facebook group: http://www.dopeamine.group Podcast Course: http://cnote.thinkific.com

I've always had to learn more about people by asking questions, looking for signs and learning about systems like MBTI. I've developed a better understanding of my past through this development and hopefully I can help you, too!

Honoring Mental Health in a Relationship
Today on the show I talk about Honoring Mental Health in a Relationship. In it's most simplest terms, that's about respect and loving one another through every little difficult. Sometimes you have to set boundaries but remember that it's not about control, it's about putting checks and balances in place to make sure that you're cultivating the life and relationship that you want for each other. Speaking to one another about what you're dealing with is also important. We also talk about relationships in which one partner has issues and the other doesn't as well as relationships in which both partners have difficulties.

Marshall Sylver on Hypnotism, Certainty, and Money
Today on the show I have world renowned hypnotist Marshall Sylver with me to talk about the launch of his program called CertaintyInc. He uses his abilities to help other unlock a sense of certainty within themselves to go after their dreams and ambitions. We have a lot of mental blockers in life and this is another avenue that many successful people have taken to explore what they never thought was possible. He's even translated that into his personally life, helping his wife feel no pain during the birth of their children which he broadcasted live to show how it all works. I'm fascinated by the discussion as he shares money mindset tips, talks about how he got started in hypnotism and shares more about his upcoming program. He's been on numerous talk shows in his career and will not stop! You can look for Marshall Sylver at sylver.com and look for certainyinc.com to launch in October.

Podcasting as a Personal Development Tool

Podcasting isn't just about being fun and entertaining but through that process of becoming more entertaining we can learn a lot about ourselves. What we like, what we don't like, what don't we like about how we speak? What is the best way to connect with people? I've been able to use podcasting as a therapeutic tool, which has been very important to me. So I share that and more on this episode of DOPEamine!

Educating Others on Your Mental Illness
Today on the show I wanted to talk about educating others on your mental illness. That means openly discussing your boundaries and needs with those around you to better set yourself up for success during difficult times. We talk a bit about still handling your responsibilities and not using your mental health as excuse while also talking about how sharing your experience with those close to you is a means to battle stigma as well. Providing clarity can be a way of defending yourself against those trying to do harm as well. It's a good show and there's a lot to break down, so join me!

Ashley Sanders | Leadership, Comedy, Marketing, and Grief
Today on the show we have Ashley Sanders who has had her own YouTube and Facebook show for a long time focused on helping people innovate but is now transitioning into helping people become leaders through her Leadership Retreat called Camp Ashley. Ashley is a lot of fun to speak to and she's very open about who she is. She shares with us how she grew up in a family of leaders, how that rubbed off on her, her relationship with comedy, why she doesn't like marketing so much anymore and discusses the processing of grief with the passing of her beloved grandmother. These sound like heavy topics but we approach with a levity that will certainly leaving you smiling once you're done listening to it. You can find out more about Ashley Sanders at CampAshley.net.

MBTI Kryptonite: How Each Type Responds to Stress
Today I wanted to talk about Myers-Briggs inferior function. What is your weakness and what creates stress for your type? How do you overcome that? What can you learn from that? If you don't know your type, this could be a way to learn which type you fall under based on how you respond to stress. In general, I think it's quite interesting to look at each type to see some of the darker sides and what we can to nurture our strengths in order to improve.

Alone
Today on the show let's talk about "Alone." Being alone, feeling alone, feeling lonely, the existential aspect of alone...there's a lot to break down. From relationships to whether or not you physically like to be alone, the point is to talk about this subject from varying points of you. Being alone or not being alone doesn't live within the realm of right or wrong, it's another avenue of discovering your identity to best suit your needs in any given situation. Ultimately, there's this concept that we're alone our entire lives in one sense, so how do we cope with that? There's a lot to break down and think about here as we dive into the deep dark abyss of dealing with the concept "Alone."

Perry Liao | Purpose Driven Mastery for Asian Men
Today I speak with Perry Laio, mindset and spirituality mentor for men seeking Purpose Driven Mastery. Perry focuses on helping Asian men gain a sense of individuality and freedom in the direction of their lives. Many eastern cultures remain closely tied to their families throughout their lives and with that comes the pressure of succeeding in the way your parents want you to succeed. Good grades and a stable job are more sought after than a life of entrepreneurship. With the increasing numbers of business owners only increasing, this episode is important for those who are having trouble stepping into their own light.

Unexpected Life Events
Today on the show I'm talking about unexpected life events. Those major things that happen to each of but often manifest different and at different times. Complacency can take us off guard and being thrown off of our routine can have mental and financial side effects. I share with you a recent story of financial hardship and how I worked through that journey. For the most part we discuss how everyone is different so they're going handle the emotional and thinking aspects of these events differently.

No Action is An Action
Today on the show I wanted to talk about the lack of action equaling an action. It's easy for us to feel like we should just ignore certain things. Ignore our mental health, ignore responsibilities or ignore the people and situations around us. Frankly, not making a decision equals a decision and I'm here to discuss that.

Self-Harm, Suicide and Not Wanting To Exist. WARNING: HEAVY EPISODE AND HEAVY TOPIC!
WARNING: HEAVY EPISODE AND HEAVY TOPIC! Yes, warnings everywhere. This episode is most definitely a heavy one. We talk about self-harm, suicide and the difference between that and simply not wanting to exist. Many of us have experienced this deeply painful feeling of worthlessness, helplessness and simply not wanting to exist. For me, this has manifested in my past as reckless behavior since I didn't value myself as much as I do now. So, essentially I share my stories of suicide attempts and how I've re-framed my approach to suicide as momentarily versus permanent. I'm only able to speak from my experience as I'm absolutely not a doctor and am not providing medical advice on how you should approach suicidal tendencies. If you're suffering please seek professional help or if you're in crisis mode please call 1-800-273-8255.

The Source of Advice
Today on the show I talk about The Source of Advice. When we have an idea for something, especially when it's something in which we may be breaking the mold a bit, we tend to ask our friends if it's a good idea. Frankly, their advice, especially if negative, is likely not going to be helpful. Are they experts in the thing you're trying to do? Why are you really asking them and why are you asking for permission? Let's break it down.

Travel Vs. Escapism
Today on the show I talk about the topic of travel vs. escapism. What's the difference between getting away to enjoy yourself and getting away to not have to face your problems? I break down a bit of what that means and how that has manifested in my life through the various bits of travel I've done, life changes I've made and decisions I've seen others make when it comes to escaping their responsibility. We're currently looking for show sponsors, so if you appeal to podcast creators, content creators, new business owners looking to improve their life then you'll be a great fit as a sponsor!

Depression and Sex

Using Your Mental Health as Creative Inspiration
Today on the show I talk about using your mental health as creative inspiration. Musicians, artists and other creators often us their personal stories as inspiration for their expression, which includes your struggle with mental health. The entire point of this podcast is to promote the idea that it's okay to struggle and mental health is a very real aspect in our lives, so why not use it as part of our creative expression. Sure, some point don't want all of the details of what you're feeling, so applying that to creative expression can be a healthy outlet without alienating yourself in any way.

Triggers and Our Environment
Today on the show I talk about the triggers we face in our every day environment. I give some examples of what I face and offer some insight into things you should consider if you're finding it difficult to get through the day because of your environment. Things like loud noises, bright lights and intense smells can sometimes be triggers for those dealing with mood disorder. We talk a bit about the stigma behind the word "trigger" and mood disorders as well.

We also talk about integrating creativity into your day and what you can do on your own to get your creativity going. This is most definitely one of the more fun shows that'll leave you wanting to dance through the hallways. Welcome, Saras! You can find out more about Saras at SarasFeijóo.com!

Taking Responsibility for Your Mental Health
Today on the show I wanted to talk about taking responsibility for your mental health. What does that mean? Well, simply put, in most cases your life is not anyone else's responsibility. Yes, that sounds harsh but that's the reality we live in. If we let ourselves go, don't find the right support, don't learn more about yourself and refuse to grow then we'll most definitely be doomed to deal with more difficult aspects of mental illness. I talk a little bit about comparing mental health to being born into a family below the poverty line and that not being an excuse to throw your hands up and give up. There's a lot to break down here, so I hope you'll join me!

Revisiting The Past
Today I wanted to talk about revisiting the past. It's something that we eventually do on our mental health journey but how useful is it? Should we take stock in our past? Should we ignore it completely? Many of us idolized the past, or our past, specifically. Many of us have had difficult pasts and may not want to revisit those things. I'm here to talk about the power of going into the past and the danger of getting lost in it. I hope you'll enjoy this one!

Kate has a wealth of knowledge and some personal stories to share from her life as an introvert. We talk about the mindset of an introvert as well as some stigma surrounding this common personality type. There are a lot of walls to break for people's view of introverts as well as from introverts themselves. Being a natural introvert myself, I was extra excited to have Kate on the podcast. We also speak a bit about the Myers-Briggs personality assessment and how that helps her with client discovery.

The Inevitable Emotional Crash
Today on the show I wanted to share with everyone some of the side effects that I deal with when it comes to the emotional crash after mania. I've been dealing with cyclothymia (a mood disorder) since I was a kid and over the years have learned ways of coping with it. However, I know that there is a certain inevitability when it comes to this cycle. I start to feel and feel like I can take on the world but then the crash comes. So, a major component of that is preparing myself for when that happens. I take extra measure to make sure that when I crash I'm able to come with ways to still get work done.

Self-Discipline
Today on the show I wanted to talk applying self-discipline. Many of us feel like we don't need any rules in our lives but tend to find that some semblance of structure turns out to be beneficial for them. I find that those who benefit the most from sense of routine or structure are those who are dealing with a trigger-like illness. I know that if I break my morning routine or sleep schedule too drastic, it throws me off balance. I wanted to share my personal experience in this area as I continue to grow in my mental health journey!

David Yarde | Upward and Onward
Today I spoke to David Yarde, graphic designer and business owner who spent some time in the corporate world before realizing he'd rather have his own business. He brings up a good point that while many people may see the corporate world as more stable, it's often the other way around, at least for creatives, because your fate is in someone else's hands. He works with his wife, so we spoke a bit about that dynamic as well as taking time to be healthy and not overworking yourself. Lots of great insight from David!

James Gaffney | Punk Rock Mindset and Design
Today on the show we have James Gaffney, a graphic designer with his own business creating his own path the punk rock way. We talk quite a bit about punk rock, how that gen-x mindset is seaping into culture in a larger way, how to build a team and how design stays the same while trends change. If you're a designer at any stage of your career, this episode is for you. Lots of great information from James on how to make decisions for yourself, be respectful to clients while trying new things and we even talk about pricing projects. Lots to break down and lots to share with you all! It was a dope conversation, one of my favorites so far.

Public Vulnerability
Today on the show I talk about public vulnerability. Many content creators are considered to be "normal" every day people. You and I aren't celebrities, we're just people trying to make a living on our own terms. Many of us, however, also don't have public relations teams telling us how to be. How do we approach our work? What can we be open about? What should we be open about? I talk about the positives of being open about who you are and getting in front of any negativity that someone can throw at you. This is the first episode I've done live on our Facebook page, so if you go like us there you can see these episodes as they're being recorded! https://www.facebook.com/DOPEaminePodcast/ You can learn more about the host, Christian Rivera, at http://www.himynameischristian.com

Support for Rape and Other Trauma
Warning: This episode discusses the heavy topic of rape. So today is a bit of a heavy episode. I came across a reddit thread in which a distraught sister had just discovered who her sister's attacker was and decided to take to reddit in order to determine a course of action. Should she confront him? Should she prosecute? Should she urge her sister to do something? What came out of it was something interesting. I discovered that there is a common thread when it comes to trauma, pointing a finger at the victim. Now this isn't about blaming the victim for being attacked but about blaming the victim for not doing anything. Applying pressure as someone who should be providing support for their sibling, friend, co-worker, etc. This episode talks about how we can better support each other in trauma and how we can give the power back to the victim who has had all sense of control taken from them.

Passions and Sins: Enneagram Prompting
So, today I wanted to talk about using enneagrams and the resulting "passions" as a way to prompt yourself to learn about where you are in life and where you'd like to go. Many of us are simply lost and sometimes we need a bit of a boost; some new information about how to proceed. I think looking at enneagrams and the resulting passions, based on the seven deadly sins are a great way to look at how you're making decisions, what is your driving force, what are your weaknesses and what should you lean into. I find that gluttony is my major focus that has it's own strengths and weakness. Strength in aspiring for more but a weakness in not appreciating more of what I have. This is something I'm continuing to work on. There is no one specific answer or path but multiple results may help you look at where you can improve. I hope you'll enjoy this one!

Breakdown: INTP and Mental Health from an INTP
Today on the show I want to share with you a recent YouTube video I did about INTPs and Mental Health. In the future, I'd like to break down more specific examples of what I feel is an INTP personality trait versus the mental health struggles I've dealt with because sometimes those wires get crossed. INTPs tend to struggle socially but can be quite genius when it comes to logic and understanding. Many aspects of what an INTP is translates well into why I even do this podcast to begin with. I think this is a great episode to learn a lot more about me but also help anyone who is also an INTP or knows of an INTP that they have some struggle understanding.

Colleen Farese | Alternative Discovery
Today on the show I have my dear friend Colleen Farese with me to talk about her personal story of finding focus through Tarot and spirituality. She was once, too quickly, diagnosed with bipolar disorder and it wasn't very helpful for her. She didn't feel like herself and needed an alternative method of discovering what she needed. Before you run away, skeptical person, this episode touches on the practical side of Tarot and how the fun of it is a way for you to prompt your mind into being honest with itself. As we know, sometimes the most difficult part of growth is honesty, and Tarot has given her the opportunity to do that. One size does not fit all, so here is a different way of finding clarity in life.

Repression vs. Positivity
Today on the show I wanted to talk about this idea of repression and positivity being two very different things. We can be positive about a situation and about our future but if it's a means to cover up the negative then it's not so helpful. One of the common things I've seen amongst people, those I've come across and interviewed, is that repression can lead to negative physical and mental symptoms in our lives. Not being real about where we're at in life will lead us down a path of simply not being true to who we are and what we need. So, I design repression in terms of my story of divorce, growing up in a tough town of Philly, and how I started to allow myself the room to process emotions and more specifically be clear about my emotions and my intent versus someone else's intent. This show got quite real and I'm incredibly proud of how it turned out. It's one of those shows that just feels like a therapy session. So I hope you'll enjoy it and leave a review! imprinteasy.com/dope

A Fall from Grace
Today on the show I wanted to talk about Falling from Grace. Specifically I mean falling from a high place of importance, understanding or social standing. This could mean losing your job, spouse, falling out from a relationship with a loved one. Essentially falling from some place of perceived perfection. For many of us, that's building a business and having it fail. I share some ideas on how you can regroup and recenter yourself. What you should be doing and focusing on as well as some specific questions that can help you be more honest with yourself. I think you'll like this one.

This one is what I'd like to call a "full episode!" Today on the show I have with me Eduard Boka, a business consultant and marketing strategist, who gives a breadth of knowledge as it pertains to mindset and business. We talk quite a bit about building your foundation, seizing opportunity and looking deeper into "Why" you're doing what you're doing. Eduard also has the unique experience of being from, living in and doing business from Romania with United States customers. He discusses why U.S. customers fit him better. He also shares how he nearly jumped on the idea of Canva before they came onto the market and shares the lessons he's learned from that experience.

I love this episode and I think you will too! You can check out Eduard Boka and his business at https://marketogy.com/

Money Mindset | Growing Up Poor
Today on the show I talk about money mindset and how growing up poor has affected my perception of growth in business. I've been trying to be a full-fledged entrepreneur for a long time but poor money habits, mindset, and perspective have kept me from allowing myself to grow in the ways that I'd like to. I talk a bit about altruism, greed, capatilism and more as we dive into this much needed topic of discussion. Let's do this! I"m now looking for sponsors for the show, so if you're interested please reach out to dopeaminepodcast@gmail.com You can hear the show at http://www.dopeamine.life You can learn more about the host, Christian Rivera, at http://www.himynameischristian.

The Mathematics of Love
Today on the show I wanted to talk about a great TED Talk I came across called "The Mathematics of Love." It's one of my favorites as it dives into the complexities of finding a partner. Even if you feel like you're really good at swooning someone from a feelings perspective, you're still playing a numbers game. There is no tried and true one method for finding the right partner but understanding the odds could put those odds in your favor. Hannah Fry also speaks about how to maintain a health marriage and what the stats say are the best qualities of lasting love. You can find the TED Talk on youtube with a simple google search.

Rosemary was kind enough to share her story and talk about how entrepreneurs can work on issues of anxiety and self-doubt whilst starting their own business. Rosemary also comes from a family of entrepreneurs, so there's a lot of interesting stuff here to break down.

Juliet Lucero | Educating Schools on Anti-Bullying, Mental Health and Shooter Drills
Today on the show I have Juliet Lucero with me to discuss some deep and heavy topics including bullying, mental health and school shootings. These are all topics can make people feel uncomfortable but with the unfortunate reality of mass killings being ever-present in our world, it's a topic we need to discuss. It's also a topic we need to educate schools on in terms of preventative measures, identifying potential threads, helping those with mental health struggles, preventing stigma and teaching people to be better to each other. They even had a webinar discussing 13 Reasons Why and how the show has a negative impact, intentional or not. Juliet shares how her work with Keenan & Associates is assisting schools in improving in these ways. We also talk a little bit about music as she's a DJ in her spare time to relief the stress that comes with a job like this. We had an excellent chat about some important topics that everyone should listen to! You can find her music at JulietStar.c

Not Doing Enough
Welcome to the Friday show! What's the Friday show? Eh, I don't really know yet. I think it'll be a time for me to talk a little bit more about what's going on in my life at the moment. Where I'm in my personal growth journey along with my personal mental health struggle as well. I may have guests in the future but I do like the idea of it being the opportunity for you guys to get to know me a little bit better. Today on the show I talk about "Not Doing Enough." I struggle so intensely with this feeling of never feeling a sense of accomplishment in life, that I'm always searching for the next thing and sometimes I need to take a step back to look at the things I dismiss as meaningful tasks and allow myself to take stock in those things. Taking care of myself is okay and is a part of the goal. Being process focused isn't as easy as it sounds but I'm going to keep working on it and sharing that journey with you guys!

Tyron Cutner | Well-Dressed Mindset
Today on the show I speak with Tyron Cutner about the importance of Men's Style as it pertains to the mindset of the modern man.

He helps other men realize their potential in dressing well and unlocks their life potential through unlocking the well-dressed man that exists in everyone.

Finding Your Thing
Today on the show I talk about finding your "thing." You know, the meaning of your life, the career you want, the piece of the puzzle that will make you feel whole. I discuss the search and what type of thinking you can employ to help you find that sense of being that you may be striving for. Consider in yourself what fits your core values, what makes you feel good, what makes sense and what you have talent in. This is definitely more of a philosophical episode meant to stimulate a bit of discovery. I hope you learn something!

Myers-Briggs Breakdown
Today on the show I'm flying solo to talk about Myers-Briggs personality types and how they can help you on your mental health journey. Learning that I'm an INTP has opened the doors for me to realize I have different strengths to offer the world and have often been trying to be something I'm not. Many introverts feel like they need to be more out there than they should be. We need time to think and process, some of us need to consider, strongly, the types of people we interact with. It's incredibly important to continue searching to find more about yourself to allow yourself to be completely who you are to avoid repressing thoughts, needs, and feelings that lead to many mental health struggles. Disclaimer: I am not a mental health or Myers-Briggs professional, simply someone sharing their own experiences. If you're suffering from mental health difficulties please consult a mental health professional.

John Jones On EFD
Today on the show I have John Jones joining me to talk about his IT business in the UK and how he operated that business whilst having Executive Function Disorder (EFD).

He also employs a lot of similar techniques with raising his kids whom have some of their own difficulties. His partner is his rock and helps help with forward motion.

The Biggest Change Of 2018
2018 can be a big year for all of us if we finally join the year we're in. What does that mean? That means realizing that we have more control of the media landscape than we allow ourselves to believe. Everything we discuss or love is brought to us via more content. We're deciding what gets put in front of us. No longer do we live in a time where few entities control everything. So from a consumer standpoint, we need to take ownership of that for our own sanity.

080 | Repression and Mania
I find mania to be the more difficult and less understood aspect of bipolar disorder. The highs seems you're just being productive or extra fun but what is really going on is a chemical regression of negative feelings. Once brain chemistry catches up, the crash begins. On this episode, I read a really great article that logically breaks down the intense difficult that comes with fending the maddening affects of mania. Once again, I'm not a medical professional. Just someone with experience trying to help.

Believing In Your Value
I've been speaking a lot lately about stopping others from getting in the way of your success but none of that matters if you don't believe in yourself first. You are your own most major barrier to doing what you want to do in this world. I mean that. When something gets difficult, what do we do? We make an excuse not to try. When someone asks us to do something that contradicts with our plan, what do we do? We give in and do it even when we don't want to do. When we start doing something and stop to look at it, what do we do? We just harshly and discourage ourselves. We are essentially our own worst enemy much of the time. We judge ourselves, we freeze in fear, or feel we have nothing of value to offer. Every human being has something of value to offer another person. So, where do we start? Know that not everyone is your audience. You're not ever speaking to 7 billion people at once. You're not supposed to and you can't. Not only because it's a bit near impossible but also because

Valuing People Too Much
In an extension of previous topics, I wanted to keep attacking this notion that anything we want to do needs to be filtered through the lense of other people in order for that thing to happen. Why do we need approval to do what we want to do? Why do we need someone to sign off on our idea? Especially in 2017 when we there are so few barriers to do what we can to show off our talents. Are you a great musician? Put your stuff on SoundCloud. An amazing artist? Connect and post your work on Instagram. The only thing stopping us is ourselves, old school thinking and how much stock we put in other people’s opinions. If you truly love what you’re doing, loving the process and respecting yourself enough, you would never let the opinions, blockades, or fears of judgement stop you from getting what you want. Sure, you can gather ideas and opinions from other people but ultimately you need to take ownership of your choices and learn to live with those choices. So perhaps that fear you’re experie

Media Tools And Mindset
In yesterday's podcast I spoke about the external things in life that are possibly holding us back...family, friends and other negative people close to use who feel like because they feel inadequate about themselves. What's more unfair than that? You holding yourself back because of excuses that don't make sense like "I don't have the tools" or "I don't have the knowledge." Those are two statements that make very little sense in 2017. We literally have media production machines in our pockets. We have the ability to make YouTube videos with our camera phones and edit them with apps or shoot them in one go to not have to edit at all. We can record podcasts with Anchor by literally putting the phone up to our ears and talking for a while. We are our own PR company with Instagram and Snapchat. We can communicate with communities via Facebook and other services...all while commuting or sitting in bed! So what's actually the problem? There's gotta be something bigger. There's a mindset s

Removing Negative Family
With unlimited access to data and many of us having access to cell phones that serve as a mini media production studio, we're slowly running out of excuses to do the things we want to do in this world. Instagram allows us to be our own PR department, YouTube for video production, Anchor for podcasting and Facebook for creating groups for like-minded people...there are fewer and fewer reasons for us to accomplish anything we want in life. So, why is it that so many of still struggle with getting off the ground? Why do we continue to make excuses? I believe mindset is the difference between staying on the bench and getting to the starting line. Unfortunately, we may come across a time in our lives when even those closest to use are going to envy, hate, or look down upon our ambitions, goals, or life changes. Like lobsters in a bucket they can't bare to see you leave for whatever reason they've made up in their head. As unfortunate as it is to see, you have to remember that they are

I simply want you to know that what you waste your time thinking about, the excuses you make for yourself and things you keep to yourself for fear of judgement are things that no one actually cares about but you. Not only do you need to take ownership of that but you need to realize that no one can be more invested in your life than you. Expecting others to create a path for you or always have your interest in mind could lead to a lot of unneeded pressure in your personal and professional relationship.
