Sometimes being told to think positively can be the most frustrating thing someone can say to us. It can feel as though that person doesn't understand what we are going through.

For many of us, we are not good at asking for what we want or even need. It’s a habit of ours and one that is powerful to change.
Many of you are stressed out right now. It’s not surprising. A lot is going on. However, you have the opportunity to swim upstream and live these next few months differently. It’s like there is a low hanging, delicious apple in front of you. In today’s podcast, I show you how to pick it.
As we change so does the way we see people. Are they the same people? Are we the same? It’s about perspective.

These next few days are not going to be easy as we wait for, what is for many of us, the most important American election of our lifetime. In today’s podcast, I give some tips on how to manage over these next few days.

How do we work with the things that have happened in our pasts? Is it possible to overcome trauma and pain with positive thinking? In today’s podcast, I explain.
Most of the time, we underestimate our power. But what happens when we accidentally overestimate it? In today’s podcast, I answer a question from one of my students who is concerned she may have been part of someone in her life becoming ill.
