There are perfect days, when the sun is shining, birds are singing, and babies giggle in joy at the site of you. Then, there are those dark days When Things Don’t Go Your Way. You know, the ones where you lose your keys, drop your phone in the toilet, and the dog uses the remote as a chew toy. We all have these hiccups in our life. What happens when you’ve been planning for something, getting your life on track in a certain direction and what you’ve been working hard for slips out of your grasp? A job you’ve been going to school for changes it’s rules on what their company needs to hire for that position. Early retirement is a no-go after your nest egg disappears thanks to bad investments. You, or the party you side with, lose an election. What happens then?
The Success Freaks received this question from Listener Nada: “Can you talk about how the Ego may or may not fuel the fear we have of how we are perceived and rejection and ways these fears hold us back from opportunities. Also, methods to put our egos in check so that we don’t get in the way of ourselves.” Listen in as Mordant & McFall go in depth with both their answer and, of course, the humor as they edify and entertain their way into helping you be awesome!
On this episode of Success Freaks, McFall pretty much nails his Randy “Macho Man” Savage impression! Mordant sounds silky smooth with nary a scratch in his voice. The guys discuss thinking beyond the Herd Mentality. When Ego meets resistance, you’re doing it right. In the Level Up section, we learn about systematic desensitisation, EFT tapping, and “why ask why?” Finally, in On Beyond, the guys tackle their next big challenge. [Read more…]
“Change is the only constant in life.” ~Heraclitus~
Just when you get used to something – a job, relationship, a certain age – things flip-flop around and you are forced to “Roll With the Changes.” Embrace the fact that Change is a big and necessary part of your life. It forces you to adapt/grow/evolve/get off the couch. Once you learn this, those formally annoying changes become an exciting part of the adventure that will enrich your life. Though not always easy, it doesn’t have to be a drag. You might as well lean in and grow with it – for your changes are a-comin’.
This episode of Success Freaks brings Mordant & McFall to more changes of their own, including more tweaking of their format – the better to entertain & edify you with. Included is a segment dedicated to answering the listener question: “How do you get rid of toxic people in your life when you are toxic to yourself sometimes?” Check out the madcap energy as the Level Up Guys enjoy a rare moment of recording in the same space.
