Mordant & McFall discuss how members of our inner circle are the ones who take the brunt of our learning curves. They see what seems like hypocrisy, get the religious anger of our failings as we learn, and hopefully stay strong to the other side. Learning is the most dangerous game of all – even for those watching from the sidelines.
Mordant adopts a country twang while Charles asks if “you have seen a whole new world?” after listening to the prior two episodes. The gang reminds us how they are battling in the trenches with us. We all have to adapt to the learning curve of life and realize our inner circle is going to take the brunt of it while we struggle for air. To counter this, we all need to work on communicating and “adulting” effectively. You will get some relationship advice along the way as well as being reminded that time is precious. It’s time to cut yourself some slack and create space for riding out the learning curve. [Read more…]

In the season of love we find ourselves focused on what other people think – about us, our relationship status, our place in life, and many other things that don’t truly matter. But, what about that all-important love that all too often get’s missed – self love? Is it selfish or narcissistic to nurture and love yourself? Can you even love others if you can’t love yourself first?
Hot off the St. Valentine’s Day holiday, Mordant & McFall discuss what it means to love as well as some of the pitfalls that come along with being in love. Join in for an episode all about what should matter most – what you think about, and how you show love to…yourself. [Read more…]
‘Tis the season to be…grumpy? During this holiday season, do you find yourself spouting Bah Humbug more often than Merry Christmas? Do thoughts of family dinners this Christmas Holiday stir up more feelings of dread than visions of sugarplums dancing in your…well, you know. If you find yourself in a quandary about Kwanzaa, a huff about Hanukkah, or exasperated about X-mas, then this is the show for you.
With a birthday just past and Christmas around the corner (when this episode was recorded), Mordant & McFall tackle the slippery slope of the Holiday Spirit and the meaning(s) of Christmas. Is Santa Claus truly for everyone… or only the less-enlightened, more materially-minded masses looking to horn in on a religious holiday? Your Level Up Guys go back and forth on this one, chucking Christmas cheer and tongue-in-cheek tinsel all over the Holiday Season. Give a listen and decide for yourself whether they are being Naughty or Nice.
Happy Holidaze & God Bless Us, Every One!!! [Read more…]
This week on Facebook.com/SuccessFreaks, Charles asked the question Would you Rather be Brilliant or Inspired? First off, what’s the difference if any between the two? Are we just arguing semantics here or is it anything like Would you Rather be Lucky or Good? While one aspect taps into personal abilities and the other divine gifts, how does one choose?

With so many things happening in your life, you often lose sight of what’s most important. Remaining present will bring clarity in the midst of chaos giving you the tools you need to not only survive, but to thrive. Remember, it’s called a present because it’s a gift you give yourself. Staying present not only allows you laser-beam focus on whatever task may be at hand, but also gifts you with the ability to enjoy the richness of life happening around you.
In this episode, Mordant & McFall discuss remaining present as a salve to any emotional pain you might be experiencing. Rather than dwelling on your most recent loss, often it is best to concentrate on what remains immediately front of you. Staying present helps keep you balanced and grounded – no matter the storm of chaos raging around you.
