How To Heal Yourself From Your Past Part 2
In continuing with the theme of tearing down to rebuild one's life, I thought I would continue with the conversation I was having with my friend and how much it inspired me to do today's podcast. It isn't possible to create a new life if we continue to relive, recite and repeat the memories of the past.  "Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind!". If we want a new life, we have to create a new mind, a new personality, a new story, a new you! Listen to today's podcast to start the process of healing yourself.

What To Do When You Don't Believe In Yourself (Plus Free Goal Planner!)
I believe the only way to get out of the "self doubt" rut is to take action. Doing something consistently everyday will keep you from using that same energy to worry and analyze what is wrong and what could go wrong in the aspects of your life. My suggestion is that you start a 30 Day Challenge for yourself. You can decide to - save money  - drink more water - eat a leaner diet - get into an easy exercise routine - wake up an hour earlier - meditate/do deep breathing exercise - read a few pages of that book you've been meaning to read! I created a free daily planner you can use to monitor whichever activity you choose to use! Click here: It is free to download, no email address or anything of the sort.

How To Improve Your Emotional Intelligence
How do you improve your emotional intelligence or EQ? First of all, what exactly IS Emotional Intelligence? According to the dictionary, here is the definition of emotional intelligence:  "the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically." I have broken down, as simply as possible, how emotional intelligence has completely changed my life by doing one thing: being aware of my emotions, both the negative as well as the negative. Emotional intelligence is about managing both sides of our emotions. It is unhealthy to be too negative as it is unhealthy to be too positive, and I explain why in this video.

How To Crush It In 2019 By Doing This One Thing!
In this podcast I suggest doing only one thing to achieve your goals this year! If you get overwhelmed easily, then why not decide to focus on one goal each day? Focus on ONE activity that you want to accomplish. You can even start a 30 day challenge for yourself where you decide to focus on 1 goal, idea, habit, activity, whatever you like. But you have to promise yourself that you will get it done!  1. Use my daily goal planner to write down the 1 goal you want to achieve 2. Write down what outcome you would like to achieve from this goal 3. Make sure you sign your goal sheet after you have completed your goal, as a sense of pride that you actually did it!
