“The Truth About Authenticity” with Laura Coe

Laura Coe says our minds are a great tool for analyzing things, but often not good at telling us the truth. We all have certain people we look at and say, “Oh, man, they’ve got it together!” We project our fantasy to other people, believing they don’t struggle with the same negative thoughts we do, and that’s just not the case. How do you find your authentic inner voice in the crowd of other voices that surround you? The limiting thoughts in your head that come from other places always make you feel weighed down. But when you listen to your deeper, authentic self, you’ll find there’s a lift of excitement and enthusiasm that comes with it.

“How to Get Your Mind in Shape” with Laura Coe

Author Laura Coe teaches about how to take back your life and get your mind in shape. We live in a culture where, when we have limiting or negative thoughts, the typical response is, “Man up!” But she says it’s important for us to question the cultural mindset that it’s okay to walk around with these thoughts weighing us down. “Push through no matter what, and just work harder” is not always the answer. Sometimes it’s questioning these belief systems and taking a different path.

“Why You’re Stressed and Tired” with Laura Coe

Laura Coe says the stress in your life isn’t from lack of time, sleep, or organization, but from neglecting your emotional life. The thoughts in our head that most of us don’t pay much attention to can start to weigh us down. And when we say things like, “I dread this, I feel heavy, or I don’t want to do this,” we don’t realize how much those thoughts start to weigh us down. And just like our physical bodies can weigh us down, our thoughts can as well.

Toan Lam says we all have the gift of time, however short or long it may be, on this earth. And having unique experiences matters because everything we go through matters. Toan believes life is designed to challenge us so we can grow physically, mentally and spiritually, and it’s up to you to focus in on that and pay attention.

“Communicate Your Story” with Toan Lam

Toan Lam believes we are all brought into this world with an extraordinary power, with something that makes us different and unique. Nobody will think and say things the way you will.

You’ll start collecting little pieces of the puzzle of what makes you stand out, and EVERYBODY stands out.

“Embrace Your Story” with Toan Lam

Most people think they don’t have much power, and they don’t matter. Toan Lam says you can affect change just by tapping into the power of your story and realizing you are stronger than you think. We are all brought into this world with an extraordinary power. It’s up to us to discover that power and use it to its fullest potential before we die. That’s real joy. But joy comes from using your abilities, not only to help yourself but give to other people and invest in them.
