Everyone is searching for more peace, purpose and freedom in their lives and in my interview with author Cindy Henson we explore her personal journey
Hey, Maybe it’s’ You–you must admit this is a great title for a book dealing with all of our personal crap, excuses and reason for not
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing a young new author and coach by the name of Zander Fryer. Zander and several other authors co-authored a book with Jack Canfield entitled ” Mastering the Art of Success“.
In my interview with Zander, I get the opportunity to explore the journey and path that Zander took to become a top-notch coach as well as learn about his personal passion for helping his clients find and live their purpose. Early in Zanders career, he made some mistakes and those mistakes lead him down a path to become one of the top systems architects at a major software company. Then one day one of his mentors ask Zander a question that changed his life forever. “What would you do if you could not fail?” Zander had a passion for leading which came from his experience in being in the ROTC, and with that passion, he developed his own coaching organization.
Zander has studied under the best–Jack Canfield and advocates to his clients to find their joy in life and by knowing that you will live a life filled with more abundance, happiness, and fulfillment. Zander has a great exercise to help someone find their life purpose. He asks you to sit quietly and ask yourself “What is your life purpose?” then write what comes up. Then he asks you to ask “What is your true-life purpose?” and repeat this about three times. The purpose of doing this exercise three times that you will most likely get to the true inner purpose and it will help you refine your purpose.

I know that personally throughout my career I have made changes and taken course corrections. If you are like many people you may want to make a career course correction but you are uncertain about what your new career path might look like. There are obviously lots of decision one must make, but in my interview with author Tim Cole, he outlines a great set of guiding principles that I believe would be great to follow.
In Tim’s new book “The Compass Solution” you are 4 P’s which stand for 1) Personal Accountability 2) People 3) Process 4) Perspective. These main principles are important guideposts for navigating the path to a better career. As Tim states “It is your performance, your goals, and your vision for your life that will dictate your future. For the remainder of your career, it will be the one thing you can count on and that you can set your course around. Nothing else and no one else.”
I ask this questions to the listeners of this podcast. If not now then when? When will you make that all important decision to make the career change you have been thinking about but afraid to take? Don’t let your fears hold you back. Use this podcast and Tim’s book as the tools that can provide you with the courage and strength to make the change. Allow the important information in the book to be your guide to a better career and life.

Many of us are guilty of trapping ourselves in the web of negative self-talk. The not-good-enough, self-doubt cycles that many of us cope with on a daily basis. We know its detrimental, but what are we doing to stop insidious cycle of negative self-talk? How do we reduce this thinking quickly and replace it with a positive affirmative monologue?
In my interview with author and coach, Gary John Bishop we talk his new book entitled “Unfu*ck Yourself-Get Out Of Your Head and Into Your Life“. This book is an easy read packed with practical advice on creating more success and abundance in your life and quieting the pesky self-doubt. Over the years, Gary has coached thousands of individuals from entrepreneurs, athletes, professionals and creatives. Gary’s philosophy has yielded a high success rates by leading individuals down the road to replacing old negative self-talk with positive thoughts and sustaining this growth and potential.
Gary states that “If human emotions largely result from thinking, then one way to appreciably control one’s feelings is by controlling one’s thoughts—or by changing the internalized sentences, or self-talk, with which one largely created the feeling in the first place.” Gary believes the answers we are seeking lie within ourselves, but we must be open to finding these answers and believe in our guiding voice.
If you feel like something unspoken is holding you back from abundance and reaching ultimate success, then give Gary John Bishop a listen! If you are interested in knowing more about Gary please click here for his website.
In my recent interview with author Susan David, we had the opportunity to speak about her new book entitled ” Emotional Agility-Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life.” The premise behind Susan work is that if people can learn the techniques of emotional agility, they can master the challenges in life that frequently derail them and create depression and despair.
It is all about navigating our inner world which consists of the negative self-talk, our thoughts, feelings and the habitual patterns that we create in our life that do not serve us from releasing our emotional baggage. Emotional Agility is an innovative approach to navigating life’s twist and turns with insight and accordingly to our values, rather than our knee-jerk “hooks” in which our thoughts, emotions, and stories drive our behavior.

“Your past can not be changed, but you can change tomorrow by your actions today.” This great quote is part of a new book by author and co-founder of the Hudson Institute called “Life Forward-Charting the Journey Ahead.”
At the true heart of “Life Forward“, it is masterful as assisting the reader in understanding how to deal with change. We all know that change is the biggest constant in our lives, but considering the rapid pace of change in our high tech, alway on society, it would be great to learn how to navigate change more effectively.
Most developing cultures in the first half of the twentieth century looked at the world through lenses prepared to see evolving stability, progress, and in the U.S., the good old American dream. The lenses that we now see through are change, change, change, change.
The forces of change seem to have no containment, limits or predictable sources of control. Those of us still wearing the old lenses have increasing difficulty seeing the astounding advantages of the new paradigm–the global marketplace, worldwide civilization, multicultural peoples, new careers, technological advances, transnational political structures and more.
In my interview with Pam we discuss the old rules and the new rules, these new rules are a foundation to assisting the reader in learning how to cope and assess how to deal with change. I know you are going to really enjoy my interview with author Pam McLean. If you want to learn more about the book, and the wonderful courses and programs that the Hudson Institute offers please click here.
In my recent interview with author Joanna Garzilli we speak about her new book “Big Miracles-The 11 Spiritual Rules for Ultimate Success“. During our interview together we get to discuss the 11 Spiritual Rules starting with ” Aligning with Spirit”.
In my dialogue with Joanna she tells some of her personal story in finding these laws and the personal pain she experienced, but the first law is about being a spiritual being, and knowing that you don’t have to imitate someone else, all you need to do is learn how to be yourself. While this might sound easy, so many people don’t have the confidence and the self-esteem and they are constantly trying to be someone they believe is better than them—well no one is better than you finding your authentic self and letting the world know.
Joanna’s second law is “Being a Spiritual Vehicle”. She state that in choosing a spiritual path you are choosing a path of continuous personal growth and actively seeking your spiritual transformation. Your main purpose is to expand your capacity to both give and receive love. I hope you will read her new book “Big Miracles” to learn about the other 9 laws to assist you in transforming your life to that of a spiritual being.
Throughout “Big Miracles” author Joanna Garzilli is providing practical advice and techniques to awaken your spiritual being, and in so doing achieving the ultimate success in life you desire.
I hope you enjoy this great interview with Joanna, for more information about the book please click here to be directed to her website, or click here to join her on Facebook.
Bill Jensen is a returning guest to Inside Personal Growth. This time he joins me to discuss a book he published sometime ago called The Simplicity Survival Handbook. Simplicity is something that we all need a bit more of in our lives. We have become more inundated with complexity in our world as a result of the speed of transmission of information, and the devices that keep us tethered every minute. We are spending more time on email, distracted by social media not to mention that the devices are “always on” which leads to us being so distracted that we are not paying attention to our most important relationship–our family.
Simplicity is the power to do less (of what does not matter), simplicity is the power to do more (of what does matter), states Jensen. Bill guides the reader on how to reduce email clutter, write shorter emails, go to fewer meetings, how to quickly communicate with anyone more effectively, how to leave shorter voicemails and much more.
If you are like most technology workers your day is filled with emails, voicemails, texts, meetings and attempting to put out fires and solve problems. Now this is what you are probably paid to do, but what if you could shift some of those activities to more productive and creative endeavors? Imagine the value you would bring to your organization, and how much better you would feel everyday.
I encourage you to listen to and implement some of the thirty-two techniques that Bill Jensen writes about in his book “The Simplicity Survival Handbook“.
