ISBW #508: Feedback, Live on Twitch

Trying Twitch.tv again, things going better this time. If you want to catch the stream, check out my twitch channel at 12:30, Tues-Fri!

(I also play Stardew Valley on Thursday nights.)

But here we talk feedback and stuff. I talk about how writers evolve and how we may not be able to go back to older work. I also nearly give myself a complex. But I’m OK.

ISBW #507: Recording of half a crowdcast stream

I had some technical difficulties and messed up the video, and only the second half of the episode got captured. Streaming is still a mystery land to me…

337: How Gratitude Changes Everything with Chip Franks

We’re living not just in a global pandemic, but a global mental health crisis. More people are struggling mentally and emotionally than possibly ever before. In fact, nearly half of Americans report the coronavirus crisis is harming their mental health, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll.

However, what can give you the power to manage your mental and emotional state, in times like these, is a strong sense of control of your inner world. Today, we talk about how GRATITUDE can be the key that unlocks the door to your inner freedom.

There are few people I know who excel when it comes to their mental and emotional well-being, like Chip Franks. Chip is a master of choosing the emotion that best serves him in any given circumstance, no matter how difficult or challenging it may be. You’re going to hear Chip talk about dropping his mom off at hospice last week, and how he’s able to remain grateful and joyful, even in the midst of losing his dear mother. 

Today, Chip joins the podcast for the sixth time (not including the times he’s served as a guest host) to share insights on the power of gratitude, about the joy he feels even as he navigates the inevitable, and how we can bring those feelings into every challenge we face – and every area of our lives.

336: How to Be Peaceful & Proactive When Life is Difficult

For today’s podcast episode, I want to explore what enables certain people to move through life’s challenges so much more easily and effectively than others, and give you three (3) steps to develop your ability to do the same.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the primary focus of what I’ve been talking with you about is the one thing that you have control over: your inner world (your thinking, your emotional well-being, and ultimately your internal quality of life).

I know that for many of us, it may feel like that’s easier said than done, and it can feel like the pain, frustration, fear, suffering, and sadness in the world controls us.

However, today I want to show you that you absolutely have the ability to control your thinking and to intentionally create an emotional state that serves your highest good and enables you to be proactive – no matter what’s going on in the world, in your life, or with your family.

We’ll also explore the following three (3) key steps that can help you maintain a peaceful, proactive mindset that will help you feel good, happy, energized, and optimistic, even in the midst of pain and loss.

335: The Miracle Morning "Monthly Mission" 30-Day Challenge

Is there an area of your life that you would like to change or improve in the next 30 days? Today’s podcast episode will help you do exactly that.

For each of the past few months, I’ve been hosting a Miracle Morning “Monthly Mission” (30-day Challenge) in The Miracle Morning Community Facebook group, and I wanted to invite you to participate for the month of August.

The purpose of this challenge is to choose ONE area of your life that you feel needs the most attention/improvement right now and then focus your Miracle Morning S.A.V.E.R.S. primarily on improving in that one area.

In today’s episode, I break down exactly how to do this, caution you to the three primary reasons that so many people fail to complete the challenges they set for themselves, and tell you how you can succeed and gain support from your fellow members of The Miracle Morning Community.

334: The Path of Unconditional Happiness

Do you ever have that experience where you’re reading a book and find yourself nodding your head and thinking, “Yes!” because you agree and resonate so deeply with what the author is saying?

That happened with me over and over again when I read The Untethered Soul and its follow up, The Surrender Experiment, by Michael Singer. They quickly became two of my favorite books of all time, and there are millions of people who would say the same things about his work.

Today, I’m going to read one of my favorite chapters from The Untethered Soul to you: “The Path of Unconditional Happiness.” This chapter reaffirms a fundamental philosophy that has been one of the most important I’ve ever discovered, what Michael Singer calls “the highest spiritual path.” It is that life is meant to be enjoyed, that suffering is optional, and how we always have a choice to be happy, regardless of our circumstances, which begins the moment we make our “vow of unconditional happiness.”

I invite you to keep an open mind, think about the emotions that cause you pain as well as those that best serve you, and think about how you can apply Michael Singer’s wisdom to your life so that you can truly enjoy every moment and be the happiest you’ve ever been.
