These are stories about mindset and our human experience; struggling and overcoming adversity, social anxiety, fear of failure and other personality quirks.

I was afraid to be myself most of my life. This podcast is helping me break thru mental health and social stigma. My old negative beliefs and fears are losing power and I am able to be myself more every day.

I am not a guru. My guests and I share our stories and what works for us. We are moved and inspired to grow by different experiences. Grab what resonates with you and go experiment, fail and grow.

14 Feeling Guilt for being Sick | Getting Help
I have this weird thing I don't understand well. I feel guilty for being sick. My health took a dive the last 2 months. I pushed myself hard to keep working on my business and podcast. Eventually I had to stop to rest and get help. I have a hard time saying what is wrong sometimes I don't even tell my doctor. But this time it was different. I told my doctor everything...I am getting help. I am even going to get counseling Want to learn more about your personality?

12 What makes you different is your power
I met Jeff and Tommy at the 2018 OREIA convention in Cincinnati I got up in front of 100s of people to ask Ron Phillips, keynote speaker, a question.  My knees were shaking and I told everyone I was nervous. I describe that experience in episode 9.  That's how Jeff, Tommy and I connected. Jeff struggled with similar social anxiety.  Jeff Rabinowitz  facebook.com/damntherecession biggerpockets.com/users/pharmerjeff  Tommy Desmond  tommydesmond.com/blog facebook.com/tommydesmond  Memorable quotes:  "What makes you different is your power" Jeff  “Some of the most intimate reserved things designed to be hidden from the world...when you show it to everybody...the fear gets destroyed ” Tommy  “No one reaches out to you for compassion or empathy so you can teach them how to behave better. They reach out to us because they believe in our capacity to know our darkness well enough to sit in the dark with them.” Brené Brown  “To increase our tolerance for discomfort … you practice being uncomfortable” Brené Brown  Mentioned:  renegadedetroit.com/podcasts/story-time-with-jeff/story-time-with-jeff-ep15-origins biggerpockets.com/blogs/4527-con…private-lender Ron Phillips  ron-phillips.com  oreiaconvention.com  @lisabilyeu  lisabilyeu.libsyn.com   Want to learn more about your personality?

8. Carpal Tunnel and almost losing my mind
Some years ago my wrists started hurting when I typed on my computer. I ignored the pain like any other Macho man. That was stupid and after a few years of not taking this serious, the pain was horrible and 24/7. I spent years seeing doctors, therapists, surgery and doing alternative medicines searching for a cure. And I didn't know exactly what was wrong!? The pain started in my wrists and after many years it spread to my forearms, hands, back, neck, feet! I am still not 100% sure what this is.  After many tests and doctors, I was told all sorts of things depending which doctor you believe. It may be Carpal Tunnel, repetitive stress, tendonitis, spine, neck issues and even my mind. Reading books like “It’s Not carpal Tunnel Syndrome” by Suparna Damany, physical therapy, rest, nutrition, exercise, adjusting my posture and meditation helped me. I am now able to manage the pain and I believe I will heal myself with time.  Mentioned: “It’s Not carpal Tunnel Syndrome” by Suparna Damany (damanyhealth.com/info) Borderline Idealist (borderlineidealist.com) The Art of Authenticity || Emotions | Health | Success | Philosophy | Fulfillment: Dr. Shefali Tsabary: Conscious Parenting ( artofauthenticity.libsyn.com/dr-shefali-tsabary ) "Relaxing Piano Music"  Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/   Want to learn more about your personality?

7. The not so subtle art of SCREWing up
I had some misunderstandings about introverts.  I thought I was an introvert but really what does that mean? I thought I was stuck! I am not just an introvert its way more complicted.  We screw up all the time. I used to be too critical of myself for messing up. If I did something stupid I would criticize myself harshly.  Its ok to mess up  Thank you AJ and Christian at the Borderline Idealist podcast for inspiring me to continue recording!  Want to learn more about your personality?
