We are always growing through life – sometimes intentionally, sometimes unintentionally, and often on autopilot. Messages are planted – through experiences, teachings, victories and defeats. These messages become what we believe to be true about the world around us and ourselves. Some grow stronger while others fade away. The only difference between what sticks and what slides slimily down the wall is what we have, water and prune. Basically, what we focus on. People often find themselves surprised at the very weeds they have been focusing on growing about their feet. Is this you? Which Messages do you believe most about yourself? Are they messages of victory or defeat? [Read more…]

This month, March 2014, on Success Freaks, we’re talking about “Being Human” – how, though going for the gold, we often end up in the gutter.
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
Episode #139 covers the difficulty some of us have with being blown every-which-way – off course in the Bermuda Triangle whilst trying to navigate the storms. Tempests often brought on by our own actions and inactions.
Join Mordant & McFall as they discuss what it means to be unanchored and blown about with no direction and lacking the commitment to get you back on track. Whose fault is it anyway, these storms that constantly blow us off our desired course – further out to sea, away from our goals and the safe shores of Ithaca?
Finally, coming out of hardship, how do we push through and survive the rough seas? Listen in as your Success-Freaky men chat about Keeping the Faith, your Eyes on the Prize, and the remembering Winston Churchill’s famous quote “If you’re going through hell, keep on going.” [Read more…]
With so many different lifestyles coming at us lately, what we consider family has changed from “Leave It to Beaver” into “Modern Family.” Though caricatures of real life, these shows represent real-life relationships that are happening all around us. This episode, Mordant & McFall discuss what it means to move from intolerance to indifference to tolerance all the way over to acceptance of people and lifestyles that are different than our own.
Join your Success Freaks as they chat with stars from the upcoming web series “My Two Black Girlfriends.” Together they discuss their experiences with intolerance, differing family dynamics in today’s society, and creating a web series that crosses some many lines & barriers. For those of you still growing up in a “Brady Bunch” world – where even actor Robert Reed (aka Mike Brady) would not be welcome – this is yet another opportunity to broaden your horizons from the safety of your living room or wherever you might listen to “Fenómenos de Éxito” or “Success Freaks.” Enjoy!
