Charles & Mordant play the blame game in real life…. But, maybe they should be pointing the finger at themselves? This episode, learn about teaching life lessons to kids and dealing with the neighborhood “bullies.” Sometimes you have to step back and decipher who is the actual problem child – even with adults. All of us must hone our “powers” and use them for good. Even if that means feeding the monster so you can live your life and welcome everyone to Planet You.
Mordant & McFall tackle the issue of when confidence in one person meets the worry wart in another, how to deal with the conflict, and how to shut up (on either side of the equation) and learn your lesson.
On this episode of Success Freaks, we promote a good cause, but somehow forget to set up the show. We hear what happens when co-workers clash between ‘Worry Wart’ and ‘It’s Fine!’ attitudes. We share a few personal stories of growth. In the Level Up, we learn to look for the lesson in every situation. And in On Beyond, we share the cartoon reactions we sometimes have to each other.

We strive to surround ourselves with the people and environments we want to be like. Sometimes in that journey, we become unaware of the toxic environments we are moving through to get to our goals. Mordant & McFall discuss how to become more aware of your environment and how to maintain the life you desire despite your toxic surroundings.
This week on Success Freaks the guys talk current events, they ask with whom do you surround yourself, and Listener Lauren offers a change to a Success Freaks catchphrase. In the Level Up section, C&M teach you to be aware of your environment and responsible for your situation. And in the On Beyond section, it’s the connection between Perception, Words, and Environment.
Segment One –
Charles & Mordant debate the correct use of the term “V” vs. “VS.” Mordant is mixing his passion for success with his cold medicine for this show. Charles fills us in on his plans to officiate an upcoming event at Dragon Con 2015. The guys discuss the idea of trying to get ahead in a toxic environment.
Segment Two –
Mordant talks about the question “Who do you surround yourself with?” Charles tells a story about an incident that grew from his situation or environment. He also brings up the ways a “toxic environment” can influence your life. Mordant introduces the idea that it’s OUR responsibility to overcome our environment. The guys follow up with examples of this in their lives.
Segment Three –
Charles reads a letter from Listener Lauren. In the episode SF #213 – Level Me Up, Scotty, Lauren heard Mordant use the term “Suck it up, Buttercup!” Lauren feels that it’s a very negative expression and suggests an alternative. Mordant & Charles discuss the origins of the phrase and the differing ways it can be perceived, the importance of assuming responsibility for whatever situation you’re in, and the differences between “Sucking it up” and “Leveling Up.”
Segment Four – This week’s “Level Ups”
The guys talk with the chat room and go into further detail in the conversation about “Sucking it up” and “Leveling Up.”
Charles’ Level Up: Overcome a negative environment by being Aware. Pay attention to everything around you.
Mordant’s Level Up: Don’t blame your environment for your situation. Overcome it.
Segment Five –
On Beyond Success Freaks: (Here Charles & Mordant talk about how they “Go bigger, Badder, Better, More!”)
The conversation on dealing with your environment continues between C&M and listeners in the chat room.
