“Stop Over-complicating Things” with Joe Calloway

Joe Calloway talks about how we often make things way more complicated than they need to be. One of the biggest reasons we over complicate is because it’s easier to make things complex than it is to make things simple. Anybody can make things complicated, and that’s where our natural tendency lies. It takes time and thought to edit your to-do list and your priorities down. But in the interest of getting the most out of your day, it’s essential to simplify. And this applies to people in their businesses, and it TRIPLE applies to those in leadership positions.

“Overcoming Stress and Adversity” with Kim Ades

Kim Ades asks, “Are you going to use stress and adversity as an excuse for your misery?” Sometimes bad things happen, and people in our lives do not behave the way we would like, giving us a good reason to feel stress and adversity. However, Kim says every “good reason” is just an excuse to tune in to what’s bad in the world, which depletes our life experience. Stress is very often induced by how we react to the reality around us. Events are events, and the meaning we assign to those events will determine whether or not we feel stressed.

“Taming your Critical Inner Voice” with Kim Ades

Kim Ades talks about taming your critical inner voice, which never stops talking. The voice has an opinion about everything: who we are, others, weather, politics, etc. It’s a constant internal chatter. What’s important is to acknowledge your critical inner voice and recognize that you don’t have to obey it. The critical inner voice will have an opinion, just like anybody has an opinion, but we don’t have to listen to everyone’s opinion. When you tame your critical inner voice and understand its relationship and impact on you, you slowly start to make better choices and take full responsibility for your frame of mind.

“Dealing with Challenges” with Kim Ades

Kim Ades talks about something we all must do: dealing with challenges. Sometimes we experience some adversity or challenge and just spin in the same place. We think about it and lose sleep at night because we are replaying the events in our mind. However, when something negative happens it’s okay to have a bad day, but it’s not okay to live in that bad day for days and years to come because it erodes your time and your sense of wellness. You can feel like a victim, or you can start to pivot and turn yourself toward potential solutions, being clear on what you would rather have and how to get there.

“Where’s Your Mind?” with Kim Ades

Kim Ades says journaling allows you to put your thoughts on paper, remove yourself and see them from a third party perspective. They are no longer inside your brain, but they are outside of you. And when something is outside of you, you can assess it more critically and do something with it. You’ll begin to pick up patterns of thought, belief, or of behavior, and identify where your thinking is pushing you forward and where it is holding you back.

“Own Who You Are” with Alexi and Preston

Alexi Panos and Preston Smiles talk about owning who you are and living in your truth. Unfortunately in this cookie-cutter world, many have forgotten the truth of who they are because they’ve said “yes” to all the boxes and labels others have placed on them. Living in your truth is about breaking and disassociating with those labels and asking, from a very clear space, “Who am I? What do I want to be in this moment? What do I want to be in this lifetime?” Then, "How do I want to go about doing that from a place of radical alignment and authenticity?"

“Act Now - Break the Cycle” with Alexi and Preston

Alexi Panos and Preston Smiles say all the theory in the world doesn’t mean anything if you are not willing to put it into play. If you are not prepared to step out of your comfort zone and step into that space of the unknown, you will never have the life of your dreams. You may get knocked down, but you always have to get back up and just be in the game. We are all a product of our patterns and habits, and you get in life what you give to life.

“Be Radically Responsible” with Alexi and Preston

Alexi Panos and Preston Smiles talks about our need to be radically responsible for our lives, which is a bridge to getting unstuck. A lot of people feel like they are stuck or feeling stagnant in their lives, or they don’t know that the next step is. But the truth of it is THEY are the only reason why things aren’t moving forward. And it’s because they are not willing to take radical responsibility for every single thing in their life. You are the space for everything that shows up, and if you are attracting circumstances, people and things that are not to your liking, the only thing that gets to shift is you. And once you change how you show up everything changes.

“You always have a choice” with Alexi and Preston

Alexi Panos and Preston Smiles remind us that, no matter where you are, no matter how low, no matter how much pain you are experiencing, you always have a choice. As long as there’s breath in our bodies we always have a choice and that choice can be towards our empowerment or a choice towards our tombstone.
