The Power of Possible]]> Fri, 20 Oct 2017 06:30:00 GMT 18:50 59e976f304dd699d4c777eb5 no full 1 63 This ep, I'm diving into possibility, and how powerful a concept this can be in anyone's life. Possibility is the the thing that drives a spark within us, that ultimately leads us towards action. It is the beginning of momentum that is crucial if we are going to achieve anything, or change anything. It is the starting point.


Specifically in this episode I talk through:

  • Why believing in what is possible for yourself is SO important
  • The 3-Point chain reaction that possibility can set off within you
  • 2 meaningful ways you can help to foster a sense of possibility within yourself


The book I reference in the podcast is The Power of Habit

Andrea Featherstone: Deconstructing Mindfulness]]> Fri, 13 Oct 2017 06:30:00 GMT 51:23 59dfd3c32ed684137d60642c yes full 1 62 Today's guest is an Unconventional Mindfulness Facilitator & former cynical pessimist. She’s the woman that was ticking all the boxes but wasn’t necessarily feeling that deep sense of lasting satisfaction that most of us crave. Perhaps the best description ever – she felt like an empty coloring book.


She’s a specialist in helping people not buy into the sometimes destructive mind-chatter that most of us experience. As she puts it, Andrea helps indecisive overachievers to get clear on their direction and sense of self by learning to tame their mind.


In today's ep. I'm getting to the nitty gritty of mindfulness with Andrea. I really was wanting to understand what it meant to her, and why I might want to practice mindfulness. Specifically, we cover the following:


  • How she defines Mindfulness
  • What the ultimate aim of mindfulness practices are
  • How by separating our sense of self from our minds, we can become more powerful, clearer and feel more alive
  • What we can do when we need a mindfulness hit
  • How meditation can complement mindfulness, but how they ultimate differ
  • How the cynical types among us can still experience mindfulness without the touchy feely edge


Andrea mentions her favorite book: Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now. We also discuss his second book, A New Earth.


To learn more about Andrea or sign-up for her free 6 Day to Decisiveness Challenge, head to www.projectself.com.au

<![CDATA[#61. The Important vs. The Urgent [+ the F*ck it Bucket]]]> Fri, 06 Oct 2017 06:30:00 GMT 22:53 59d699755de031fb48504f93 yes full 1 61 Most of have a tendency to get stuck on distractions, and sometimes drama, and often the most important stuff gets pushed aside.


Today I'm talking about how to make sure the Important stuff (the things that matter most in your life) don't fall by the wayside and become dominated by the things that are nosier and demand your attention more - the Urgent things.


Because a life well-lived is one where you're focusing on, and spending your time on, the stuff that matters most.


In this ep. I talk through the Franklin-Covey Time Management Matrix. To see an image, head to my website: www.thrive.how/podcast61.


This concept is spoken about in depth in Stephen Covey's book - The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - under Habit 3: Put First Things First.


I reference a Fortune article on this topic too. That can be found here: http://fortune.com/2011/03/16/how-i-managed-my-time-the-covey-way/


I talk through how you can prioritize your own life, and some simple tools that can help you spend more of your time on the stuff that is truly important to you.


Exercise: Towards the end of this episode I ask you to think about what things can go in your personal F*ck-It Bucket. Grab a piece of paper, put a line down the middle. Put a title on one side "What Matters Most", and on the other side title it "F*ck-It Bucket". This is a very quick and easy way to do an audit of your priorities and what you might need to pay more attention to.

He however, is not after any attention. He’d rather let the app speak for itself. BUT I got him talking. I wanted to know about the CEO behind the App, so I asked him a bunch of deep and meaningful questions to get to know him better – cause well, that’s what I like to do.


> To download the App, search "Insight Timer" in your App Store <


Here I talk to Christopher about:

  • How he struggles with a daily mediation practice (and understands if you do to)
  • How he believes strongly in the conscious businesses, but how many that claim to be conscious get into a tension with commercialism
  • What Christopher has to say to those who don’t have time to meditate
  • How one of their hopes is to get 1% of the population mediating at the same time, and hit the Maharishi threshold.
  • His thoughts on the importance of mediation and education in dismantling ignorance
  • How some of his greatest growth came from his biggest business failure
  • What his hope is for Insight Timer
  • And his moving yet simple statement on how we can all contribute to a better world

In the first part of the interview, I’m talking to the CEO of Insight Timer, Christopher Plowman, about their amazing App, what it does, what it is going to do, and what those behind Insight Timer are driven by.


If you’re not familiar with it, Insight Timer is the biggest little meditation app you’ve never heard of [as the CEO puts it himself in this interview]. More people meditate on Insight Timer than do on Headspace, but it’s all been organic, word of mouth growth. It’s that awesome product that you can’t help but share with everyone once you know about it. Hence the reason I’m talking to you about it!


Insight Timer is different in that it is a community platform. They provide the platform, and teachers upload their content. What that means is that you can find every type of mediation imaginable, and it’s all > FREE! <


But why are they, the people behind the Insight Timer platform, invested in this objective – of providing to free meditation to all – anyway? how do they intend to remain sustainable? What does growth at Insight Timer look like?


This the behind-the-scenes peek into the biggest little mediation app or as I like to say, the Behind the Scenes low-down.


If you’ve ever contemplated meditating, you should start here. If you’re a seasoned meditator, you’ll absolutely appreciate the timer and the breath of meditations you can access for free on the app. And if you’re a mediation teacher (or aspire to be one day!) this could be an amazing platform to help share you work.


Listen here to be in the know.

She was a TV News Presenter for 20 years, and if you're from the Minnesota region you will likely recognize her from NBC's KARE 11.


But today we're talking about the lessons about life she was learning behind the scenes - what was happening after the camera stopped rolling, and how even when life can look picture-perfect on the outside, it isn't always the case.


We ALL have our struggles and heartache, and we're talking in this episode about how you can pull yourself up and start moving forward from them.


Specifically we cover:

  • How you can start to put it back together when your life falls apart
  • How determination and perseverance are your best friends - we're often stronger than we know
  • The power of optimism and looking for what is still good
  • The power in forgiving you both yourself and others who have hurt you
  • BUT how that forgiveness is not letting someone else off the hook
  • And ultimately, how Joy can help you stay focused on the future and hope.




Roxane's book is called - Pockets of Joy - and it can be found here: Pockets of Joy on Amazon

The book also has a companion journal - Pockets of Joy Journal.


Roxane has generously offered to giveaway a copy of each to the fist person who emails her! Her website with contact details is: RoxaneBattle.com

Arien Smith - Thriving & Mental Illness]]> Fri, 18 Aug 2017 06:30:00 GMT 53:08 59927fe370e067e22a5990ab no full 1 53 This is a meaningful and wise conversation that opened my eyes in more ways than one. It made me re-think some of the ways the self-help movement has marginalized those who are looking to thrive while living with a mental illness, and helped me feel more empowered around what inclusive self-development includes.


[if you enjoyed this episode, please review us! We so appreciate your feedback. Head here: www.thrive.how/review]


Arien Smith is thriving while living with mental illness. He is also a Life Coach and host of an incredibly inspiring online TV show - Arien Inspires (aptly named!!) - where he talks through practical ways that people can thrive while living with mental illness.


This episode, among other things includes:

  • How simply trusting yourself to get through things (even when they're not easy) empowers you
  • How many self-help messages inadvertently marginalize those living with a mental illness
  • Aliveness and the power of feeling, rather than closing off emotions
  • How happiness isn't always a choice
  • Why feeling broken is nothing to be ashamed of
  • How you can be completely afraid and courageous at the same time
  • How your pain can shape you in a positive way
  • How self-discovery and spirituality can go hand-in-hand
  • How you can have wellness and a mental illness at the same time
  • How not loving yourself doesn't make you unloveable


And SO much more! This is jammed full of ah-ha's and insights.

Daniel Gefen is sharing big insights, and deep meaning in this episode. He is the host of the Can I Pick Your Brain Podcast where he talks to Entrepreneurial types about their paths, success, and how they've created what they have.


Here, we're going beyond the surface level. We're not talking money in the bank, we're talking what makes a truly successful and fulfilling life. What is it that we, as humans, need to feel successful in our hearts?


Key points covered include:

  • How Daniel used reverse psychology to convince his wife he was the one
  • Why creativity counts in life (and an epic illustration of how he used it to his advantage)
  • The cycle of a Self Help Addict (and discussion on his upcoming book - The Self Help Addict)
  • The big question you'll like be left with after reading another self-help book
  • The importance of momentum in life
  • How Children can teach you everything you need to know about success
  • 2 ways you can get yourself to look at the big picture in life
  • and How to encourage your children to grow into the people you hope they will become.


As I said in my sum up, I see Daniel as a Life Leader with the power to enthuse and inspire. He enthused and inspired me!


His company is Get Featured, and they get guests featured on podcasts - www.getfeatured.com

Taken from the Amazon snip it introducing her new book, Conscious Communication


Whether we realize it or not, the words we use dictate and control our lives. The persistent messages we repeat can frame our thoughts and trap us into a mind-set that is difficult to break. This mind-set often manifests itself with statements like “I can’t,” “I’m not good enough,” and “I’ll never find the [insert the blank] I want.” Many times, we don’t stop to consider the profound impact that these negative, limiting words have on our mentality, life choices, and the path of possibility that we manifest.

 

I had the honor of chatting through this with Mary Shores. In this episode, we're talking all about how the way we talk to ourselves and communicate with the world around us, impacts on the experience we have. Change your language and you really can change your world. 

 

I appreciate Mary's approach because she is completely practical. As we discuss in the interview, it is all well and good to hear many of the self-help anecdotes and theories, but how do you apply them to your life so that you can really see a change? That is where Conscious Communication can serve as a portal, a starting point, and something that you can really do something about. 

 


Specifically in this interview we're covering:


  • How Mary overcame adversity [including teenage parenthood, being told she wouldn't ever amount to much, the death of her first child, and divorce] to become a powerful force in her own life

 

  • The 5 Keys to How we Communicate with Ourselves

 

  • How communicating consciously can improve our lives

 

  • and how Science & Spirituality have more in common than perhaps even I've been given them credit for!

To download your list of 21 Positive Mantras, head here: 21 Positive Mantras to Help You Live Your Best Life


This episode I'm offering a high-level overview of David Hawkin's Levels of Consciousness Theory. It's a theory that outlines differing levels of emotional frequencies and posits that the way we experience life can be relayed back to our dominant level of consciousness.


We also talking through 3 ways you can start to move in a positive direction. It starts with identifying how you feel, and learning to tune in and self-reflect. Once you can recognize how you feel, you're in a better position to consciously choose if it is working for you.


David Hawkin's levels Consciousness levels list:

  • 20: Shame
  • 30: Guilt
  • 50: Apathy
  • 75: Grief
  • 100: Fear
  • 125: Desire
  • 150: Anger
  • 175: Pride
  • 200: Courage
  • 250: Neutrality (detached)
  • 310: Willingness
  • 350: Acceptance
  • 400: Reason
  • 500: Love
  • 540: Joy
  • 600: Peace
  • 700-1000: Enlightenment

This episode is a golden nugget. Lucy had me literally laughing SO loud. You’ll hear it!


There is a ton of joy in here, but the wisdom imparted is also palpable. Lucy is an expert in comparison, and how comparisonitis can trip us up in life.

 

In here you’ll find us talking through:

 

·     How Lucy had been unintentionally using social media to bash herself

·     How comparison is experienced by all humans to a lesser or greater degree

·     How comparison brings friends such as jealousy and ‘bitchy-leaks’ [that one got a good giggle outta me!]

·     The importance of self-preservation & self-focus

·     Why it is necessary to cultivate a newsfeed that you find nourishing

·     What living a #comparisonfree life looks and feels like

·     The importance of the “so what” question + how comparison always holds a jewel of insight within it

·     How comparing ourselves can lead to procrastination among other things

·     Lucy’s understanding of the fast-food version of self-care

·     The significance of evaluating why you’re doing something and the danger or not doing so

·     Her experience of talking with Oprah (and how she managed to nab the opportunity)

 

Lucy, her infectious smile, and all her work around combating comparison can be found at her web-home – www.proofcoaching.com

 

She also has the book she co-wrote called Higher Selfie which can be purchased here: https://www.amazon.com/HigherSelfie-Wake-Life-Soul-Tribe/dp/1781806675

 

She mentioned Genevieve Davis’ book Becoming Magic in this episode too. That book can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/Becoming-Magic-Course-Manifesting-Exceptional-ebook/dp/B00J7VUL9I

She talks through her personal experience of being "miserably successful" and how important it is for each of us to contribute to the greater whole, in the way we were designed to.


She also specifically addresses:

  • What a sustainable life looks like?
  • How baby-steps are what often lead us to our greatest changes
  • How we can identify, and then start taking, our own baby-steps towards a life that brings us joy
  • How we can tap into our deepest selves needs
  • And how Compound Interest can be an important concept when we think about personal growth (that small bit of effort on a consistent basis adds up to a whole heap!).

I was attached to my surface identity, and it wasn't until I reached my 30's that I was put in a position where life begged me to address this. I was disconnected from myself, and it got to the point that it wasn't working anymore.


In this podcast, I'm talking through my story, as well as how you can start to connect with your Authentic Self and show up in life. I'm highlighting that we are all beautifully, usually, uniquely perfect, and we need to celebrate that.


Points include:

  • Identity, and how it can mask our authenticity
  • How our unconscious identifications can particularly mess us up
  • How exactly we can start to connect with ourselves
  • And, why our own voices matter more than what we hear from outside of us

I reference in this episode, Elizabeth Gilbert's speech, Flight of the Hummingbird. It's a must watch! You can find it here: http://www.oprah.com/own-supersoulsessions/Elizabeth-Gilbert-The-Curiosity-Driven-Life-Video


And if you'd like a "Me" Journal, here is an Amazon search page to get you started (note: I haven't checked any of them out personally, so can't recommend sorry! - still think I just might have to write one!): ME Journal Search

Change is a constant, and yet most of us underestimate how much we do change! If we're not in the driving seat, setting our course, life has a tendency to just happen to us.


Here I'm going deeper into:

  • How it's easy to look backward, but looking forward requires us to look inside
  • The difference between Therapy vs. Coaching
  • What life is like when you're on the Offense rather than on the Defence
  • And how taking the time to think about your future breeds possibility (and possibility contains a spark of magic in my mind! ;))



I reference Dan Gilbert's TED talk, The Psychology of Your Future Self: https://www.ted.com/talks/dan_gilbert_you_are_always_changing


I also refer to an article I find useful in describing the difference between Therapy & Coaching by Patrick Williams. You can download a copy of that here: http://www.cce-global.org/Assets/BCC/Resources/CoachingvsPsychologyTheGreatDebate.pdf

<![CDATA[#37. How I Marry the Mystical with the Practical]]> Fri, 24 Mar 2017 06:30:05 GMT 20:51 58d494b0afaeea4868708df6 no full 1 37

I’m getting personal and talking about my struggle to integrate both the Mystical & Practical sides of myself. I now recognize that it was through finding a way to do so, that I have ultimately been able to find my sense of wholeness.

 

Specifically, I’m discussing:

  • What Mysticism is
  • The Left Brain/Right Brain divide
  • How we mainly live in a Left Brain world (and how Science may have screwed us)
  • And how Action is the key to bringing the mystical stuff into the real world

 

I’ve also got 3 questions for you to ask yourself to help you integrate what is coming up from your mystical side:

·     What is rising in me that wants to be expressed?

·     What can I do to bring this to life?

·     What are my next 3 simple steps?

 

In this episode, I mention Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor and her book, My Stroke of Insight. You can also watch her TED talk here: http://www.ted.com/talks/jill_bolte_taylor_s_powerful_stroke_of_insight

 

I also talk about a book that I found life-changing, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. It won’t change everyone's’ (I’ve decided no book ever really has!), but it turned up right when I was ready to read it and helped me look at my world differently.

 

If you’d like to know more about me, or my Coaching programs where I mix the practical with the old-school wisdom so many of us crave, head over to my web-home at www.thrive.how

Marriage counseling isn't always an option, and a healthy relationship does take two partners who want to make it work. But if you're wanting some tips on what you can do from your side to help your relationship thrive, I'm sharing 3 things that are within your control here. These 3 simple tips that can help keep your relationship feeling happy, healthy and insulated against the hard times, and stop you needing to cry out for marriage help!

A Matter of Mindset - A Simple Hack to Help You Feel More Empowered]]> Fri, 10 Feb 2017 06:30:00 GMT 21:25 no full 1 31 This episode I'm borrowing from psychology and talking through a simple concept that can have big impacts on how you approach the world. I'm taking the theory and making it relevant at an individual level to help you foster a positive mindset. I want to help you remember the power you have to create your own life.

This is modern spirituality mixed with self-help. I'm talking through the theory rooted in fact and contextualizing it deeply with my views on spirituality - because if I can buy into something at a soul level, I always find it more meaningful. 

This episode specifically goes over: 

  • The difference between the world happening to you, and you happening to the world
  • A psychological concept called Locus of Control
  • How this one idea can have such a big impact on your mindset
  • Why your mindset matters anyway
  • How I believe Earth is a Soul-School and why that is relevant
  • And ultimately, tools that can help you change your mindset and feel more empowered

I talk through a story of a man Waiting For God to Save Him in this episode. If you'd like a summary of that in web-form, head over here: http://epistle.us/inspiration/godwillsaveme.html

<![CDATA[#29. How to Stay Sane in Amongst the Political Craziness]]> Mon, 30 Jan 2017 22:36:09 GMT 17:47 no full 1 29 The world has gone a little loco in the last couple of weeks - well that is how it feels from where I am sitting! And I know I'm not alone in my feelings of uneasiness and concern. 

As we appear to be becoming ever more divided, I want to put a little break in the political hysteria and encourage you to do three things: 

  • Look for the good
  • Commit to re-centering yourself
  • Turn your emotional energy into meaning

If we can be conscious about how we are approaching the current political situation, we will come through it feeling less drained and beaten up and more empowered and clear. This podcast will help you focus that and remind you how to come back to what matters rather than being distracted by the noise that constantly surrounds us these days. 

I mention a TED talk in the episode. It is by Robb Willer - How to have better Political Discussions

The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) is an organization that fights for our rights and freedoms through legal avenues. They are the group that had a Court Ruling put in place for Green Card holders after Trumps Immigration Policy release. If you would like to contribute financially, you can donate at www.aclu.org

Common Habits that are Undermining Your Happiness]]> Fri, 13 Jan 2017 06:30:00 GMT 21:35 no full 1 28 In this week's episode, I'm talking through 4 habits that commonly get in the way of people's happiness, as well as strategies to help get a handle on them. They're things that often come up in my Life Coaching sessions and having noticed a definite trend around these points I thought it is something worth talking too.

The New Year is often a time when we think about what we want, but many of us neglect to consider what we don't want. This podcast focuses in on the question of:

  • What do I want less of?

I ask this question in my Free Life Planning Kit. If you'd like to download your copy, head over to my website and pop in your details: www.thrive.how/2017

Burnout is no fun, but even when you're feeling low, there are ways to keep moving forward. 

In this episode I specifically address the 3 phases of personal recovery:

  • Being Gentle with Ourselves
  • Reevaluating Things
  • Restructuring 

When we're proactive and make sure we move through each of these phases, we set ourselves up for a more sustainable life that leads us to being happier and healthier humans. 

I pose a few questions in this episode. If you want to come back and reflect, they include:

  • When was the last time you did something for the pure enjoyment of it?
  • How did I get here?
  • What is out of balance in my life?
  • What needs to change?

  • What our emotions have to tell us about our blocks
  • Where Mantras or Positive Affirmations are useful, and how to use them
  • and for special bonus, how Lindsay & I stay so positively glowy ;)

 

In our discussion Lindsay mentions one of her recent favorite books, Louise Hay's You Can Heal Your Life. This is a self-help classic, and I have just put it in my Amazon cart as the purchase was long overdue.

<![CDATA[#19: Understanding Authenticity: What Is It & Why Does it Matter?]]> Fri, 04 Nov 2016 02:12:33 GMT 23:04 no full 1 19 This week is a basic introduction to the topic of Authenticity. It is such a buzz word in the self-help and personal growth community, but I feel like so many of us really don't have a good grasp on what it even means. 

In this podcast I am:

  • Defining Authenticity, and breaking that definition down
  • Discussing the benefits - why would we even want it? 
  • Highlighting the 3 things that most often stop us from being Authentic
  • Introducing the concept of Expressing vs Impressing

Authenticity is a huge topic, and this is really an introduction. But I believe having a focus on living an authentic life is one of the keys to living a genuinely fulfilling and happy life. 

In this episode I also mention Brene Brown's book - The Gifts of Imperfection

I also reference Sarah Hernholm's TED talk - Authentic Self Expression: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ati3O3-iZls

I couldn’t put it down, and I cried happy tears of remembering and empowerment as I read her heart-stirring words. I also went on to have a session with Rebecca just as I was about to launch my business, Thrive.How. She helped calm my fears about putting myself out there and has played an integral part in me having the courage to step into my power and help shine my light into this world.

We cover:

  • Rebecca's Personal Journey
  • Being a sensitive soul
  • What an Empath is
  • What an Lightworker is and does
  • The rising Feminine Energy
  • The Age of Light

<![CDATA[#5: How to Have Boundaries with Jenn Bovee]]> Thu, 28 Jul 2016 17:40:32 GMT 32:01 no full 1 5 www.thrive.how/podcast5

 

In this episode, I was honored to be joined by Jenn Bovee. Jenn is a Psychotherapist, Mindset Coach, Hypnotherapist and Spiritual Mentor. She is also a fellow writer for the Huffington Post.

This is a juicy episode. Jenn specifically addresses:

  • Parts of her personal journey, and how she came to learn the importance of boundaries
  • What exactly boundaries are
  • How you can identify your personal boundaries
  • The 3 different types of boundaries
  • Some of the traits of Empaths, and why boundaries are especially important for Highly Sensitive People

Jenn gives 3 specific sentence completions in the podcast that she has her clients complete as a way to identify their boundaries. Use these 3 prompts to jog you to write. Don't judge, but rather just let the pen flow:

  1. People may not ...
  2. I have the right to ...
  3. To protect my time and energy it is ok to ...

Perhaps one of my favorite parts of the podcast is how Jenn defines boundaries as "limits of what we are willing to accept and willing to give." I was always prone to thinking of boundaries about what I was willing to accept, so thinking about it being what I was also willing to give was a real ah-ha moment for me!

<![CDATA[#3: How to Approach Personal Development from a Place of Already Being Enough]]> Thu, 28 Jul 2016 17:39:52 GMT 20:11 no full 1 3 www.thrive.how/podcast3

 

In this episode I've answered an audience member's question - How do we let ourselves "be" in a culture that is telling us that we are not enough. We live in a culture that constantly tells us that we are not enough. How do we approach personal growth from a place of being enough without that being a contradiction?

I coach using positive psychology and mixing that with a touch of spirituality. I was drawn to positive psychology because it focuses on our strengths and what is good about us, rather than needing "fixing" us. It comes from a place of us all already being enough, and I believe we flourish more when we play to our strengths.

If you want to improve, first recognize your inherent worthiness. You don't need to "fix" yourself. This is a mindset and a way to approach the world. We are all worthy, and each and every one of us is as worthy as another. Because you went through a tough time doesn't make you any less worthy. We must start with believing this and working on our self worth.

 

Before you start on any journey of self-discovery or growth, start with recognizing your worthiness:

3 Exercises I suggest:

- Write a list of all of your strengths (What are you good at? What are your character strengths)

- Ask people close to you what they perceive as 3 strengths you have

- Write yourself a Love Note

 

Know that you are Right Where You Are Supposed to Be

We are where we are supposed to be. I think it is psychologically healthy to have faith and believe in something bigger than yourself. In my opinion life is a journey and we are each sent lessons. Life is about navigating these lessons and growing.

Be self-compassionate. Be kind to yourself. Treat yourself like you would your own best friend. How we speak to ourselves matters. Do your best to be aware of when you talk to yourself unkindly, and try to override that negative self-talk.

Recognize that there is no behind when it comes to personal growth. We all grow at the pace that we are ready to. You're not racing anyone. We are all walking our own paths, and comparison is irrelevant. You should have no other goal than being better than you were yesterday.

* To Do: Mantra

Write a positive note, message or affirmation that you will see a couple.

e.g. - I am exactly where I am supposed to be.

 

Do what feels right for you - there is no one size fits all to personal growth

Society sells to us constantly that we are lacking. People want to us to believe that we are broken and can be fixed. But there isn't one set path to living a beautiful life. We are so unique. Don't fall into the trap of there being one Guru, or one Path to the good life.

Your growth needs to be driven from you. A coach can help, but the reality is that change can only ever come from you. I can't write a program to help you grow if you aren't willing to do the work. So you must follow what calls to you. So trust your gut, and do what interests you when it comes to personal growth.

* To Do:

Start your personal development and growth purely through trusting your gut. You have to enjoy the journey, otherwise you won't stick with it. 

I believe that if you really want to learn about yourself, grow and development, then you will always be driven to the things you need to help you do just that. Trust this. You are right where you are supposed to be. Trust that you are worthy, regardless of the outside world. There is nothing to prove.

Life is a journey. It should bring you joy, and so should your journey of personal development.

<![CDATA[#2: My Story]]> Thu, 28 Jul 2016 17:39:18 GMT 37:11 no full 1 2 This episode is all about My Story. 

To jump over to my website for extensive show notes and links, click here: www.thrive.how/podcast2

Even though I don't like labels (I think we're much deeper than that) I gave it a go. In summary, I'm a New Zealander who lives in Houston. I'm a Mama and have 2 sons, a 4 yr old and 2 yr old. I am married to a wonderful man who happens to be American. I am also a life long soul-searcher and spiritual seeker. I have a Masters in Psychology. I also have degrees in Communications, Management and Organizational Psychology.

I started coaching when I was working as a Corporate Psychologist. In my consulting role I did Team Development, Leadership Development, a tonne of personality work, and Executive Coaching. I found that when working with people talking about their professional development and their personalities, you couldn't help but move into life coaching if you were really talking about personal fulfillment. We aren't robots and our lives and our jobs aren't separate things. So that was where my coaching career started.

That's a starting point, but you'll learn A LOT more about me from this episode.

<![CDATA[#1: Introduction to Here to Thrive. What You Can Expect.]]> Thu, 28 Jul 2016 17:39:01 GMT 10:31 no full 1 1 I believe our lives are about growth and living up to our full potential. I don’t believe we are here to merely survive, I truly believe we are here to thrive. Here to Thrive: Tips for a Happier Life is a podcast to helping you do just that. 

I’m a New Zealander living in the USA. I moved here in 2013 and currently call Houston, TX home. I started my coaching practice out of my deep desire to make this world a brighter place. That is my why. And I don’t think anyone would deny that the world could do with a giant dose of love right now.

Through this podcast I will share with you tools, resources and ideas that I hope will inspire you to live the happiest and brightest version of your own life.

Here to Thrive, the podcast, is a reflection of me. I have a background in a psychology, and a personal love for positive psychology or the Science of Happiness. I am also a deeply spiritual person, and discuss that more in episode 2. When I say spiritual, I don’t mean religious. I believe in connection with our soul-selves and living from a place of authenticity and alignment. I believe we are all searching for the deep sense of meaning and fulfillment.

Each podcast will have a focus on practical points that you can take back and apply to your own life. Then every 5th episode I’ll also be hosting a guest who I feel can add something a little extra to the conversation.

Here to Thrive; the podcast – will be full of tips, ideas and discussions that will all be focused on helping you live the happiest life you can. I hope you enjoy it! Kate xx
