Trash Talk
The purpose of trash talk is to decrease the effectiveness of a player who is clearly effective.  Your opponent is attempting to decrease your performance. Once you understand the  purpose, then you have the knowledge to avoid many of the traps of your own trash talk. We often trick ourselves by wondering if there is any value in our self criticism.  The old tough love or “iron sharpens iron” defense.  But when you understand trash talk in competition, you understand that it only has ONE PURPOSE …to decrease performance. When dealing with opposing fans - NEVER TRY TO CHANGE THEIR TUNE!!  It can’t be done, they have an agenda.  To get you to shut down!  The opposing fans are not offering you a balanced assessment of your strengths and growth areas.  They are trying to get you to stop attempting to be great in hopes that you won’t be. God wants big things for you - the enemy wants to decrease your effectiveness.  Believe God! Start here: https://www.steadfastlifecoaching.com/ Sometimes God delivers the breakthrough you’re craving in the snap of a finger …and sometimes you’re going to have to “go through it” if you want the breakthrough.  I don’t know how He decides, but I know this.  Whit and I have a specific calling on our life to team up with Believers who are in their own “go through it” breakthrough and lend our expertise to make sure they don’t stop “going through it” before they reach the peace God has waiting for them on the other side Whit and Jake are Christian Life Coaches at Steadfast Life Coaching.  We bridge the gap between the secular wisdom of the self-help world and the transformative power of faith in Jesus.

I have Jesus - Why would I need a Life Coach?
Of course - Jesus is the answer, I want to find my joy in Jesus, I want to put my worth in Jesus, Jesus is trustworthy therefore I never need to worry, and I am righteous because of Him.  Soooooo I guess I don’t need a coach …but I do The main reason - because God chose to limit His authority when it comes to my mind. As Joyce Meyers puts it - “You are the only one that can deal with your thoughts.  It’s not something that another person can do for you. You are the only one that can do anything about your thoughts. There’s not a person alive that doesn’t have to choose to not think something and they think something else. Every single day” There are a lot of coaches who can teach you how to take your thoughts captive. There are SOME who will then help you make them obedient to christ. There are a lot of coaches who can help you to be intentional about where you find you worth, value, and identity. There are SOME who will help you make sure that identity is a child of the living God. There are a lot of coaches who embrace a specific lifestyle.  There are some who invite you to join them. If you’re ready to join Whit and I for a lifestyle of amazing ADVENTURE, BOLDLY following Christ, recklessly BELIEVING that your Heavenly Father wants to partner with you to pursue the MASSIVE dreams He has put in your heart - then we’re excited to meet you nd grateful to have you on the team.  Let’s be “Teammates in Christ” Start here: https://www.steadfastlifecoaching.com/ Sometimes God delivers the breakthrough you’re craving in the snap of a finger …and sometimes you’re going to have to “go through it” if you want the breakthrough.  I don’t know how He decides, but I know this.  Whit and I have a specific calling on our life to team up with Believers who are in their own “go through it” breakthrough and lend our expertise to make sure they don’t stop “going through it” before they reach the peace God has waiting for them on the other side Whit and Jake are Christian Life Coaches at Steadfast Life Coaching.  We bridge the gap between the secular wisdom of the self-help world and the transformative power of faith in Jesus.

And the Greatest of these is LOVE
FAITH - Is the belief that, when you seek it with Himt, your vision will be provided to you by God, not because you're so awesome at creating it, but because He is so awesome at gifting it. HOPE - Is the vision. Your faith gives you permission to hope bigger than your capabilities and then rather than try to be more capable, you can decide to be more faithful. LOVE - Is all that we are asked to do in the meantime and after it comes to fruition. Following His commands is not to be confused with earning anything because THIS IS MY COMMANDMENT - that you love one another as I have loved you. What a relief huh? Get your vision. Believe it is coming. Then Love people!! If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. - 1 Cor 13:1-2 Apply for a FREE breakthrough Session: https://oykk2m84esb.typeform.com/to/aoDyvObT Learn about VIP coaching: https://www.steadfastlifecoaching.com/vip-coaching-page Join our Monthly Membership "Trust U": https://www.steadfastlifecoaching.com/trust-u FB: https://www.facebook.com/SteadfastLifeCoaching IG: https://www.instagram.com/steadfastlifecoaching/ Want to get your own Steadfast Gear?  Visit the new store: https://steadfast-life-gear.launchcart.store/shop

5 Reasons to NOT Hire a Life Coach
Your desire for the breakthrough is less than your desire for another purchase You can make the change on your own You already provide more accountability to yourself than you care to have You know that someone else’s path to success is not the same as yours You are not looking to inflate yourself - you are looking glorify Jesus with your life I’m sure you have a lot of thoughts about life coaching - so do I.  I’ve worked with about 15 different coaches in different capacities …personal, marriage, business, group settings, individual settings, and sometimes just Whit, a coach, and me. We have purchased lifetime coaching for $57 and we have paid $20k for a 4 month coaching program.  We’ve been in programs with a specific goal and programs designed at simply upleveling our mindset. There are some legitimate reasons that life coaching would be a waste of your time, money, and energy. …and there are reasons that the amount of time, money and energy you are wasting because you don’t have a coach is what is REALLY draining your reserves of all 3. Just do me this favor - if you’ve never been coached, embrace the possibility that someone who has been coached as much as I have might have a nugget of information you’ll find valuable. Sometimes God delivers the breakthrough you’re craving in the snap of a finger …and sometimes you’re going to have to “go through it” if you want the breakthrough.  I don’t know how He decides, but I know this.  Whit and I have a specific calling on our life to team up with Believers who are in their own “go through it” breakthrough and lend our expertise to make sure they don’t stop “going through it” before they reach the peace God has waiting for them on the other side Whit and Jake are Christian Life Coaches at Steadfast Life Coaching.  We bridge the gap between the secular wisdom of the self-help world and the transformative power of faith in Jesus.

Mindfulness is Trusting God
“Have faith in God.” - Jesus What if trusting God is the greatest gift I can offer Him?  In that case the more dire the situation, the more honoring the trust. So how cool would it be to adjust the way you see the world in such a way that you ACTUALLY believe that God works ALL things for your good? Pretty scary? …Or would it change everything?

Forgive Yourself

You’re not REALLY going to Quit
Last Saturday I reached the top of Lone Pine Peak alongside Renee Watson and my daughter, Paige Roehl.  When we reached the bottom, Paige said, “Dad, that was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” After we had water and food, I asked Renee and Paige if they would share some insights into their mindset, fears, and self talk during the morning’s adventure - they happily agreed. How do you keep climbing when you’re terrified …for good reason? How do you keep climbing when you think you can’t take 5 more minutes and the next turn reveals there will be no mercy for hours? Why even go in the first place? Paige and Renee both have incredible insights into the struggle and success of REMAINING STEADFAST in the face of adversity that will translate directly to the mountains in YOUR life. Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.

How to Play
We all KNOW the benefits of play … Reduced stress, recharge, increased ability to be present, access to flow state, increased creativity and innovation …and a more fun life!!! …but so many of us don’t know how to do it, or are unwilling to prioritize it over productivity, so we just DON’T. This video was filmed playfully …in the mountains, in one take, with a phone propped up on a boulder, and even a dog that jumped into a lake during filming.  It was filmed playfully to honor playfulness!! Take 15 minutes and learn how you can add more playfulness to your day.

This 30 minute video will inspire you, it will show you that your fears don’t have to stop you, it will deepen your relationship with God as you pursue YOUR dreams …AND it will give you a sneak peak into what coaching with Whit and Jake really looks like.

Trust U - Christian Life Coaching
We run into Christians who have some questions that usually fit in 1 of 2 basic categories: I have Jesus, why would I need coaching, plus, isn’t it kind of idolatrous to be thinking I can “self-help”? Are you just going to tell me to pray about it and that it’s all part of God’s plan?  I know that’s true, but it is not going to help me right now. We just decided to address them both head on.  SPOILER ALERT: The short answer to both is “NO” Additionally - the next place this conversation tends to go is, “Jake, where do you and Whit fit into all of this?  What do you even do?” We figured we’d answer that too!  SPOILER ALERT: We teach you Self-Trust …you learn to Trust U Whit and Jake are Christian Life Coaches at Steadfast Life Coaching.  We bridge the gap between the secular wisdom of the self-help world and the transformative power of faith in Jesus.

How I met Whit
On May 27th 2016 I sent a message to one "Whitney Joeckel" on the dating app Ok Cupid.  May 28th she responded ...and May 30th we met in person for the first time.  But here's the crazy part ...on May 26th I was completely unaware that Whit existed and I had tons of stories about what was possible for me, what limits were "just facts" about my life, and what my best course of action was for the life that was in front of me.  It was all 100% WRONG!!   With that experience in my back pocket, I reflect on the lessons I learned from it each May 26th.  So now - 6 years later - this is what I want to offer to you:   1. "Behind" isn't real  2. You're not as smart as you think you are  3. Real faith surrenders control  4. Confidence comes from your self talk ...and ONLY from your self talk Whit and Jake are Christian Life Coaches at Steadfast Life Coaching.  We bridge the gap between the secular wisdom of the self-help world and the transformative power of faith in Jesus.

The SKILLS of Belief
Just because you know what a hammer is and what it is for doesn’t mean you have achieved mastery - that comes from building your SKILL at using the tool.

The TOOLS of Belief
When you’re building a house, there are tools that make things go way faster once you know they exist …then there are the skills of knowing just how and when to use each individual tool The same is true with belief - you don’t have to just believe whatever pops into your head and hope that someday you believe stuff that helps you be the person you want to be.  There are tools  that make things go way faster when you’re setting out to build belief.

The MYTH of Belief
Mark 9:24  Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” There is a HUGE myth about belief that keeps us feeling stuck and feeling guilty.  The myth is this:  Belief is something outside of me that will take root in me once there is enough evidence to support it. When we subscribe to this myth, our doubt is a problem that requires a solution.  But that’s a lie! Take Aways: Belief is a decision …and only a decision Jesus understood the myth and taught us how to break free from it No one can tell me what I believe - for better or worse.

The Enneagram and your Christian Faith
I had a great conversation with Enneagram coach Kelsey Taylor where we dove into some layers that lie underneath “The Number”  . We talked about skepticism, application, her personal testimony, and how Christians sometimes look on self help tools like this one with suspicion. Kelsey patiently walked me through my questions ..as she does :)  …and now YOU get to benefit from her expertise. Take Aways: The same tools and skills that are promoted through in depth study of yourself through the lens of your enneagram number are present in The Gospel Your enneagram number does not predict what you will do …you have full authority over that.  The enneagram gives you the scouting report on your specific formula for motivation When you learn what you focus on, you will become aware of what you tend to miss.

Boys Weekend - 4 days alone with a one month old
Whit headed out to California to grow her mind with some of the best in the world, and I got to spend 96 hours with my son who needs a bottle every 3rd one.  I decided to use the same technique we coach clients with:  Plan, Execute, Evaluate, Adjust …and I documented it as I went so we can ALL learn from the film room :) Lessons: Plans are better held loosely otherwise I spend my energy trying to bend reality to meet the fantasy I created rather than adjusting my response to the situation I’m actually in Taking authority over my experience of life is about building skills and learning to use tools, not getting to the top of a mountain so I can check it off my bucket list.  Beating myself up for feeling out of control is an indication that I am misunderstanding this journey It takes energy to interrupt the pattern you’re in, but if you don’t like what the pattern is producing, that is energy well spent.

The Amazing Whitney Roehl
Having a front row seat to Whitney’s journey through a new type of difficult time, I wanted to share some observations on the specific qualities that both inspired and blessed me in hopes that you will be inspired to bless others. I unpack: Her relentless pursuit of “Eureka” as she navigates the 2 great pitfalls of self growth What massive action looks like when it is a value rather than a means to and end Whitney’s powerful why - the one that is so powerful that sometimes I am just a passenger on the train her passion is driving She has no idea I’m recording this - and probably wouldn't approve, don’t miss your opportunity to hear how amazing she is behind the curtain.

Life with Maverick Jon: Mindset Shifts in Real Time
We are currently 4 weeks into a MASSIVE life change as we are raising our son Maverick Jon. Whit delivered Maverick on March 21st at 1:06pm and he was 1 foot 9 inches tall and weighed in at 8lbs 5oz Since then - life has been a whirlwind of gratitude, doubts, immeasurable blessings, and overwhelming fears.  We know we have amazing mindset skills …and we know that sleep is REQUIRED if we’re going to access them.  And this poses a problem Bottom line is that Whitney and I are practicing what we preach (we’re pulling out every tool in the bag) and we decided to invite you in to peek behind the curtain and see how we do mindset in work in real time. Check it out - take a little time to explore how default thinking can show up even in the midst of amazing miracles, and what you can do in those moments to take back your authority over your felt experience of live and REMAIN STEADFAST!!

We are in some unprecedented times in education - like teaching 7th graders who haven’t had a full year in a classroom since the 4th grade!!  And teachers asked to become IT experts and teach students they’ve never seen in person. So what if we accepted this reality instead of trying to “should” it back to something it is not?  What if the innovating and creating to succeed in this situation actually applied to THIS situation instead of the situation we wish it was?  What if this could be JUST the adversity needed to create the most resilient generation of 40 year olds when they are taking the reigns of this country?  What part would you like to play in that? Some of the topics we covered in this ONE HOUR zoom session: 1. What do I do when parents try to blame the teacher for their child not performing? 2. What to say to a student who complains that they “studied” for hours for the test and still did poorly 3. What to say to a student who asks for extra credit to help their grade but doesn’t even do the regular credit 4. How do I help students who don’t seem to care, even if their parents are providing a supportive environment and they don’t fully understand the consequences of their actions 5. How do I  deal with students who are distracted using cellphones in class 6. How do I incorporate growth mindset into classroom policies and procedures (but that doesn’t involve letting kids retake every test, etc.) 7. How do I help kids take more ownership of their education Whit and Jake are Christian Life Coaches at Steadfast Life Coaching.  We bridge the gap between the secular wisdom of the self-help world and the transformative power of faith in Jesus.

Allowing Anxiety
There are certain emotions that are just a bit more enjoyable to experience than others and in full transparency, if resisting, numbing, or pretending they weren’t there actually worked - I’d be the first in line to learn how to do it. But the truth is that the more we try to resist an emotion, the louder it gets …and if we numb is or deny it, it’s only a matter of time until it breaks free with a vengeance. So what if you tried a different approach?  What if you allowed it?  What if you accepted ALL emotion as part of your life?  What if you made a habit of learning the lesson it was offering you instead of telling it to be quiet and go away? That’s what this episode is all about.

The Devil is in the Assumptions
Powerful question - is that 100% true?  Because if it’s not, then its not a fact - it’s a choice We make the choice (consciously or subconsciously), then we never look back and think it was a fact.  No problem - unless its a problem and I start believing that dreams of mine are impossible because of these “facts” I have chosen over the past 30 years. Here’s what I want you to try: Think about your dream or goal and why it is difficult to achieve Set a timer for 5 minutes and write down EVERY sentence that comes to mind Read them and find one or two that might be excuses or limitations Ask yourself: “Is that 100% true?” …and if it’s not, then Ask yourself: “Do I want to keep on choosing that belief?” Whit and Jake are Christian Life Coaches at Steadfast Life Coaching.  We bridge the gap between the secular wisdom of the self-help world and the transformative power of faith in Jesus.

Safety Second - Is your love affair with safety holding you back
When you set out on an adventure, people love to say, “Be safe out there.” …and I totally get what they mean, but the TRUTH is that being safe is NOT why we got there. In school we’d always hear adults sayin, “Safety first.” - but I believe that is why so many people have a hard time making the big change that will lead to their new identity, making the big investment that will lead to financial freedom, or taking the risk that will build their resiliency. So what if you tried something new - what if every time you heard yourself whisper “safety first” you whispered back “no - safety second.”  It’s just a little reminder that you don’t REALLY want safety to be your top priority.

The Unshakeable Power of Acceptance
We all believe that holding our standards and demanding people rise to meet them is a powerful stance - but it is NOT!! The most powerful person in the room is the person who does not need anyone in the room to do or be any particular thing in order for them to be okay. The person who has the self awareness to know what it is they are hoping to get when the world changes to meet their expectations, then builds the skill of offering it to themselves …so THEY hold the power instead of the world.

Forgiveness. Your NEW F-Word
Cognitively we KNOW that forgiveness is a good thing, but what about our safety? If I forgive, doesn’t that just let them off the hook? Doesn’t it remove ANY accountability for their actions? How will they learn their lesson? Won’t people just walk all over me? Let’s take a look at options that become available if forgiveness is safe! And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” - Mark 11:25 Here’s the link to the meditation I use: https://www.steadfastlifecoaching.com/products/meditations/categories/3660876/posts/12858462 Comment if you want me to send you the forgiveness script that Whit and I use.

How to Have a Game you can Trust
Dr. Bob Rotella puts it in his book "Golf is Not a Game of Perfect”: "The trusting mentality is essential for getting ready to play competitively. If you want to be able to trust your swing on the golf course, you have to spend time doing it on the practice tee. Human beings are creatures of habit. They cannot, as a general rule, spend all of their practice time in the training mentality and then switch to the trusting mentality for competition. …so how do you practice in a trusting mindset if you need to have enough reps before you can REALLY trust your game?

4 Myths about Weight Loss get BUSTED by Whit
The thing about myths is that they tend to keep us in a box.  Then we use the limits of the box to determine if we’re doing good or bad - and if we are or are not capable of success in the future. In this episodes, Whit Busts these FOUR MYTHS about weightloss I MUST eat perfectly at least 80% of the time to lose weight I MUST workout 3-5 times per week to lose weight I MUST become a “health freak” to lose weight I MUST shame myself for errors so that I can stay accountable in order to lose weight. Any of these seem true to you? Yeah ...that’s the thing about myths.  The problem is that we believe them.

Ditch the Food Guilt - how to stop feeling guilty after you eat ‘bad’ food
It’s a pretty common cycle when you’re trying to change an eating habit - restrict, overeat, guilt, restrict ...ad nauseum.  The big error is actually WHERE we attempt to disrupt this cycle.  Right in the little space between restrict and fail. The REAL culprit is the guilt! Without guilt, you can evaluate, you can learn, you can experiment, you can make 1% adjustments, you can find out what works best for you now, and you can understand how to make adjustments as needed in the future. With guilt - you punish, you berate, you force, you deny, you suffer, you battle, you judge ...and you overeat ...again. It’s not you - it’s the guilt!  Learn how to elevate your relationship with food to place beyond guilt.  Understand your TRUE authority over this cycle!

Super Hero Syndrome - The day life taught me that I am NOT superman
I've wanted to be the hero since I can remember.  My first concussion came from jumping off of a boulder onto my dad without him knowing because I had seen the hero do it on TV. Unfortunately that incident was not enough to teach me the danger of the love affair with swooping to the rescue.  When I became a father, in my mind it was hero or failure.  I set out to be my daughter's hero ...and full transparency, it was more like her invincible, bulletproof, unstoppable SUPER hero. It was WAY too much pressure because it turns out I am, in fact, mortal.  I truth that punched my right in the face when I had to sit down and tell her that the security I had assured her would last forever was actually a security too heavy for me to carry and that it was all about to come crashing down ..and she was going to get hurt.  I couldn't protect her this time.  Even worse, I was the one that was about to hurt her.

Food Confessions - Food, Emotion, and finding your authority
You open the fridge, you see the cupcakes, you’re tired - it’s been a long day, you decide to just eat one, then you feel terrible.  WHY would I eat that at 10pm??  Now the one next to it starts to look really good - and you know where it goes from here. Whit and Jake do it too - we eat refined sugar, empty calories, the foods that make our joints hurt or make us feel bloated ...and we do it because it is just such an easy way to feel a little bit better. But the story doesn’t have to end there.  When you experience this, it is NOT the final nail in the coffin or the straw or the camel’s back.  It’s part of being a human being and it doesn’t have to stop you from reaching your health goals.  You don’t even have to punish yourself to get “back on track” ...there’s no track.  It’s a metaphor.  It’s an analogy. And we’ll be teaching you (or just reminding you) how to navigate this part of human-ness on November 11th at 7pm Central.  Sign up right here: https://www.steadfastlifecoaching.com/workshop Apply for a FREE breakthrough Session: https://oykk2m84esb.typeform.com/to/aoDyvObT Learn about VIP coaching: https://www.steadfastlifecoaching.com/vip-coaching-page Join our Monthly Membership "Trust U": https://www.steadfastlifecoaching.com/trust-u FB: https://www.facebook.com/SteadfastLifeCoaching IG: https://www.instagram.com/steadfastlifecoaching/

Masks, Vaccines, COVID, and the People you Love
What do you do when the people you love have the opposite view as you on the day’s hot button issue?  What if it’s your coworker that you see everyday ...or your parents, your kids, or your spouse? How do you stay in the conversation when the conversation feels shut down right from the start? All you want is to feel heard, respected, valued - is this the end of your friendship?  Your family?  Your marriage?  Is this the hill you want to die on? Learn how this can be EXACTLY what you need to bulletproof your relationships and uplevel your skill at LOVING PEOPLE. “If your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love.  Do no, by your eating, destroy someone for whom Christ died.” Romans 14:15

Whit’s Take on Stress
Whit’s stress management style is extremely effective and a bit different than Jake’s.  She treats stress as an emotion and uses her breath and meditation as effective ways to dance with it. It is important to Whit that she doesn’t attack, resist, or attempt to escape from stress.  She finds it most effective to allow it to be there, then allow it to move through her body, so she can get back to bolding pursuing the purposes God has put on her heart.

How to Remain Steadfast
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, remain Steadfast. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58 Steadfast ...immovable ...unwavering.  What images do these conjure up in your mind?  Maximus Meridius from Gladiator?  William Wallace from Braveheart?  Maybe an image of Moses and his staff leaning forward with supernatural strength against an insurmountable force? Nah - I don’t find these so great. Join in my trying on a different approach to rise up to tha challenge that Paul offers in 1st Corinthians.

The Danger of Thinking you Know
There’s an incredibly common message in the growth community that you don’t need to know “The How” - It is a POWERFUL message that combats the belief that we need to know exactly what to do in order to do anything properly. There’s a subtle other, and less talked about twist on this though.  Thinning that you DO know how ...often followed by, “And I am not capable!” I quietly suffered with this lie in my head for a few years after a vasectomy.  I was incapable of offering Whit the family she wanted, I was outside of God's plan for our marriage, and I had blown it with a selfish decision.  And it felt so true because “I know exactly how pregnancy happens ...and I’m not capable.” Or maybe - I don’t know as much as I think I do and when I see an impossible situation I will expect God to do a miracle.

Ask Steadfast: How to be Kind to Yourself
This is probably the 3rd most common myth we hear on a daily basis ...If I’m nice to myself, I’ll let myself off the hook and I’ll become complacent, lazy, and stagnant. I’d try to be more gentle and open minded with this  ...but it’s just plain false!! Try this little thought experiment: Think about that grade school teacher that you loved ...that you STILL smile when you think about.  Think about the love of learning that was lit up inside you.  Possibly only to be snuffed out by some power hungry overbearing taskmaster who could never be pleased a few years later. Now ...which teacher are you choosing to be when you talk to you?  And what is the justification for that again?  Effectiveness???

Whit Summited Mt. Langley ...PREGNANT
Whit and I had just returned from a fast paced 60 mile backpacking trip in the Sierras where Whit had noticed her body doing some strange things: Waves of nausea Dizzy spells Easily fatigued It was interesting ...but all could be chalked up to the elevations we reached on the trip.  And then we got the results of the pregnancy test!!!

Sometimes I make a plan and I’m pumped to follow it ...but then I forget.  How do you remember stuff you’re not used to doing?

How do you dress to work from home? Business casual?  Pajamas on the lower half?  Costumes?  What’s the deal? Great questions!!  These are Whit and Jake’s answers...

It was my job to read the currents and keep us safe - I didn’t do a very good job and things took a dangerous turn.  But Dan didn’t panic - with no tangible evidence Dan BELIEVED that, “It would probably be OK.” But how can someone believe that when there is a significant probability that it won’t???

Then one fine day I left that world and set out to build a business - BOOM!!!  Talk about a blow to the ego.  My swagger suddenly looked more like a limp. In this podcast Whitney walks me through the transition - the obstacles I didn't see coming, the social awkwardness of failing at my day job, the fear that I was being an irresponsible dad, and the amazing reward for staying committed.

Allowing Disappointment - Whit's Story

The best solution is to build your CAPACITY to feel disappointment so that when it does show up, it doesn't have such a devastating impact. How do you do that?  You FEEL it!  You don't buffer it, you don't resist it, and you don't appease it.  You ALLOW it. In this episode Whit discusses the BIG DISAPPOINTMENT she felt after choosing the BIG BELIEF that she was pregnant.  She holds nothing back as she walks you through the practical steps and the emotional experience of befriending her disappointment. "As I continue to practice allowing ALL emotion, my life gets fuller, richer, and more authentic." - Whit

Laughing through the Heavy Stuff
The best word to describe the time we've spent with Lindsey is DELIGHTFUL.  As we worked with her and watched her grow through over 65lbs of weight loss, we would consistently find ourselves blown away by 2 things: 1. Lindsey's willingness to hold her story loosely.  She had her justifications, her excuses, and her well rehearsed stories of her limitations just like the rest of us.  The difference was that she wasn't so chained to them.  When she saw them, rather than fight to defend them ...she would laugh ...HARD! 2.  Lindsey's consistency in her weight loss - as a matter of fact she has had the most steady and uninterrupted weight loss of any client we've worked with. Now she is NOT the most driven, striving, hustling, grinding client we've worked with ...hmmm, isn't that interesting. Is there something to this "laughing and adapting" technique of hers??  We think it's worth exploring in a podcast for sure!!

Your Worth is NOT a Number on a Scale
When Chelsie started her time with Steadfast Life Coaching, her biggest obstacle was that she didn't believe she was worth the tough choices required to reach her goals.  She was plagued by lies running on repeat in her mind that had been so well practiced they now felt like truth. The journey away from one framework of belief to another can be extremely uncomfortable, so Chelsie started off by borrowing belief from Whitney and I ...and her supportive husband.  As she kept doing the work she built some belief in herself and the progress was even faster. Recently she began to include her faith in Jesus as she sought this transformation ...and that adjustment has changed EVERYTHING!!! If you feel trapped by the story in your mind ...or if you just thought , ""Yeah, but mine's not a story, it's reality" - then Chelsie's story could be just what you need to put some cracks in that wall that is holding you back.

Life After People Pleasing with Shanna Nail
You've been there before.  You're committed.  You've got a plan.  You've prepped your veggies and protein.  This is the week you're going to make the changes.  And then it begins: "Mom - I'm not going to be able to eat before practice tonight." "Is it OK if Maddy spends the night?" "Hey babe, let's do date night Thursday night.  What do you say to going out to a nice restaurant and getting appetizers AND dessert!?!?" Maybe you even get the words out, "I had planned to eat healthy this week." But the rebuttals come in, "Oh come on - you deserve a night out."  "One dinner won't make that much of a difference." And deep down, you agree, but mostly because you think the same stuff.  It's not going to make a difference, I'll just blow it in a few days anyway, it's so selfish to ruin everyone's night since I never even stick with it." ...and there it is.  You go to the back burner, your weight stays the same, you have plenty of fuel to beat yourself up for failing again. But at least other people are happy ...for tonight. What if you could end that cycle?  What if you could fill yourself up with so much love and validation that you become the example you dream of being for your family?  How would you show up differently at your ideal health? Is it really selfish to make some difficult choices on the way to that change? I like the way Shanna puts it, "NO!" Shanna did it.  She lived that reality and she did the work to live a new one now!!  Check out her story.

How to Overcome Impossible
As Whit and I get back to life after taking 12 teenagers on a 7 day wilderness adventure, we reflect on some of the insights that came up while the kids were staring at challenges with NO BELIEF that success was possible.  Then what they learned as they leaned into the impossible hard enough to make it possible. The key is the fuel ...the emotion ...the feeling that you are experience as you are taking on a difficult challenge.  I KNOW you have a "mountain" of your own - that challenge in your own life that just looks impossible from here.  I believe that these lesson learned in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California are the same lessons that help you to climb yours.

You've Got to Believe it to See it.
"I'll believe it when I see it" - we've all thought it, we've probably all said it, but what if the entire premise is wrong. Every time I've tried to chase down a scary goal or make a big change in my life I do a risk/reward or cost/benefit analysis in my head.  Ultimately I come to the same conclusion - if the result was guaranteed by certain date and come a certain way, then the goal wouldn't be scary.  The scary part is all the risk and all the reward have to be put in up front and reward is "out there" somewhere. One thing I know for sure - if I DON'T put in the work I will FOR SURE miss out on the reward.  So the conclusion is this ..."I need to see it to believe it." is a cop out.  It's a trick that our lizard brain uses to keep us safe and comfortable.  The truth is that we need to believe it FIRST, then we'll take the actions that will allow us to see it.

Most of the suffering we experience in life comes from the difference between our expectations and "What Is."  The audience's suffering during an improv comedy show comes from actors attempting to force there expectations instead of accepting "What Is."    So here's the theory ...the skills the GOOD actors use might be a great a benefit to US.
