Big Choice, Big Change By Heather Nichols

Have you ever had a sense that it’s time for a big change? Many of us do, yet often it can seem too enormous to take that first step. You may put off change many times – perhaps thinking that it would just be too difficult or you will get to it someday when the children are older or you have more money at hand. And unlike someone who desires things to always remain the same, you have made smaller changes.  Do bigger choices seem intimidating? . Perhaps it could be leaving a job you have outgrown, beginning or ending a relationship. Maybe you would like to move to a different country or begin a new business or even finish a college or high school degree. What if it didn’t have to be difficult or overwhelming? What if it didn’t mean working harder, longer and suffering to create an extremely different life for yourself? What if you had some profoundly powerful tools that could create a different reality with more ease than you have ever thought was possible? Join Heather Nichols and Blossom Benedict as they share some of their favorite tools create those big changes in life with ease, speed, a sense of joy, creativity and potency!

Our Oceans, Our Future: a conversation with Fabien Cousteau by Catherine Calarco

Educate + Empower + Restore. It is a great honor to be joined by Fabien Cousteau to discuss the Ocean Learning Center (OLC) and the experience of living 31 Days underwater. Our dynamic conversation will provide unique insights and review amazing adventures of the Cousteau family. Following his grandfather’s words, “People protect what they love, they love what they understand and they understand what they are taught.” – Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the mission of the OLC is to raise awareness, educate, and inform all citizens of the world of ways to protect and preserve the planet’s waters and endangered marine habitats and marine life. Through knowledge and innovative technologies regarding ocean preservation, the team at OLC collaborate with partners to develop educational programs and activities in aquatic conservation, restoration, and marine projects dedicated to protecting the Earth’s waters and its inhabitants for the future of our next generation.

The Oceans provide our planet with air, water, and food. We share an unbounded curiosity to learn about our environment and life.   As an Aquanaut, Fabien lived under water for 31days.   His experience demonstrated the uniqueness of our planet and the joy of being part of the ocean environment.  

“”Ninety-nine percent of our livings space is the ocean”  

The oceans hold a huge amount of secrets and amazing new discoveries.   New technology now makes it possible for us to explore it like never before.  At the same time, the ocean environment is threatened with islands of plastic (gyres), the loss of coral reefs due to bleaching and acidification that threatens the entire planet itself.  Dynamics of climate change impacts the ocean and us on land.  Technology can save the ocean but it will take people to make it happen.  
How can you get involved?  Connect with Fabien at http://www.fabiencousteauolc.org/ and join in the efforts to save our oceans.  Join us on Humanity Evolve! Tuesday 1pm Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica

I struggle By Marni

What am I going to write about? The time I struggled and showed my ass by behaving like I’d lost my mind? There are moments I feel like I’m part of the circus or better yet starring in a sit-com.  My life is far from always being full of laughter though we laugh a lot in our family.
I get tired of taking everything so seriously.  So I put on a pair of “TV glasses” and see what each situation I’m worried about, frustrated with, pissed about, and enjoying would like through the camera of a sit-com.
I discovered this solution when Eli was an infant.  I was alone and changing his diaper.  He stuck one foot in poop, then another, then his hand.  Somehow it got on my hands too.  I was by myself at home.  And as a new mom, I began to panic.  How do I figure this out? How do I get my son and myself clean without getting poop everywhere.  Every idea I thought of resulted in me seeing my son ending up falling to the floor.  All the tools I needed were in other rooms,  The thought of carrying poop from room to room with a dog and three cats standing by to enter the fray filled me with more anxiety.   My body tensed and tightened.  And then Eli began to cry.  Big surprise, right?  And then as he wriggled in more poop, for a split second I imagined my reaction if I was watching this on TV.  What was the big deal? And I began to laugh.  And as I laughed and my body loosened, Eli calmed and smiled.  I have no idea how, but somehow I cleaned us both pretty quickly and easily.  And from then on, I pulled out my “TV Glasses” during life situations.  Any caregivers out there ever experience similar situations?
Which brings me to a few days ago when again I was struggling, frustrated and a little scared.  Instead of picturing the sitcom, I cried.  I disagreed with my producer for my upcoming radio show and participated in unnecessary arguing drama.  I was not fit for human consumption and I felt it in my body. I reflected on all my “life plates” I keep spinning, my to dos.  Are these life or death “plates”? Nope.  What will happen if I don’t get EVERYTHING done? Nothing.  What am I afraid of?
Truth? Falling on my face which is FAILING. Yet even as I say that most of me is not afraid.  I know in the deepest part of me, even if I fall on my face there is a reason.  I know the experience will provide me with an opportunity.  Now truth be told.  It isn’t comfortable to fail.  So I don’t know of anyone who runs out and says Yes, I’ll choose Failure.  What I know is if I don’t choose change,  which comes with risks, and pushing out of what is comfortable, I stay stuck.
Complacency becomes another word for stuck.  Don’t make waves. Status quo.   Don’t ask a tough question because of what might happen.  Did you know stuck means you don’t get to experience the fantabulous either?
Self-esteem plays a huge role in your willingness to embrace change.  Change can have ALOT of unknown and unfamiliar feelings and factors.  So of course complacency will feel better in some aspects because you know it.  And you know your outcomes even if they are painful.
So here I go taking another leap:  1) I premiered my radio show heard globally   2) I stopped part of my business marketing which I believed until recently was the largest draw for meeting new clients.   I do not know what I’m doing next to grow my community.   I trust it will be revealed soon (there was a bit of GULP the first time I said that)  3) I am continuing to lovingly detach as a parent (more on this in future articles). Providing my son opportunities to grow and fail (as safely as I can)  4) I am visibly emerging with  live videos on social media, radio, joint ventures with other healers 5) I am learning how to do my radio show from my computer and all the mechanics and marketing (there are at least 10 things here I don’t know)  6) I am allowing in my relationship with Marc instead of listening to the voice telling me to “drive the train”.  With more leaping each week and sometimes daily.
And while some days it feels harder and some days I fail.  I am still happy everyday.  And more and more consistently, I feel an ease and a joy.  I feel a freedom like I did as a kid riding my bike super fast with the wind blowing my hair kicking my feet out as I went down a huge hill and yelling WHEEEEEEE!!!
With Love and Gratitude,
Marni

How to live a confident and vital life!  By Catherine Calarco

DSC_0025 copy 2  

Interested in learning how to transform yourself at the speed of thought?  It takes only 90 Seconds!  What often blocks people from feeling capable in life and from having greater success with finances, health or relationships is how they handle unpleasant feelings. Psychologist Joan Rosenberg unveils the innovative strategy and surprising keys for experiencing the challenging emotions that lie at the heart of confidence, emotional strength, and resilience.
On Humanity Evolve!, we Explore the link between confidence and dealing with negative emotions to live a full and vital life. The idea for Emotional Mastery™ emerged out of Dr Joan Rosenberg’s personal and professional desires to understand what makes people do the things they do – a question that dates back to her childhood days, watching and wondering why people treat each other in harsh and unpleasant ways. Out of her psychological work with women over the last 20yrs, Dr Joan began developing the foundational ideas for Emotional Mastery™. Three decades, tens of thousands of hours of clinical practice and the past ten years of neuroscience research have been distilled into an approach that radically changes people’s lives. Neuroscience concepts explain why this approach to change works. Health and well-being involve daily choices and daily actions and efforts. So for the rest of today and for tomorrow too, just start by being aware of your choices.  What choice will you make that supports your physical health?  What choice will you make that supports your mental and emotional well-being?  Now, Emotional Mastery™ can help you live a confident and vital life!

A Year on Performance and Mindset! by Luis Vicente Garcia

IMG_1004

What do you think if you hear about a year on Performance and Mindset? For me it has been a celebration of both Entrepreneurial Magic and Personal Success!

Join me as we celebrate a full year with or radio show ‘Performing at Your Best: Mindset Evolution with Luis Vicente Garcia’. We had an incredible year filled with amazing concepts, new themes, inspiring notes and fabulous interviews: Joan Detz, Margaret Maclay, Steve Olds, Marc Koehler, Bob Burg, Hans Trupp, Michelle Poler, you name it. We talked about business ideas and fear; emotional intelligence and franchises; business expertise alongside purpose and vision; and we talked about the Sustainable Development Goals issued by the United Nations. We focused on improving and changing your mindset in order to increase your performance.

Join me in this one hour show as we review our first year on Performance and Mindset.

When we talk about Business or entrepreneurial success, we might not be really sure what it is or how to define it; and this will prove to be critical. You need to know where you are today and where you are going; then, figure out your plan to get there.

Whether you have been in business for years or you are a start-up, things look harder and more difficult than what you originally thought, take more time and might have a bigger cost than planned. Your three main resources: time, team and money will be tested over and over again. What you need to do here is to understand what makes you apart, what is important for you and your company and how can you start redirecting some of the approaches and ideas you have been using in the past.

This actually is the number one critical issue for all people and companies that do need to change: adapt and be flexible. This implies realizing the need to adapt to the changing business environments, looking at the trends in the market and your industry, while improving some of the important areas (if not all) in your company.

When you do it, something starts to happen and suddenly there is a better flow of energy, new ideas start to flourish, a more dynamic team takes action, goals are reached and visions are aligned. In all, you, your staff, team members and your company start talking about success and what it would mean to be successful (and yes we know we all measure Success in a different way).

Over the course of the year from June 2015 to May 2016 we had an incredible team that helped us reach thousands of listeners form all over the world; we invited amazing guests, talked about important business issues and development tools. And most importantly, we talked about you, your teams, your companies and how you can improve your performance while changing your mindset.

In this hour-long show we will review the best highlights from an amazing year so please join us as we review our first year on Performance and Mindset!

The Business Interpretation of Performance: Training Intent – “The MAGIC of the Martial Arts of Business” by Luis Vicente Garcia

Luis Vicente Garcia on Keys to Manageial Success

When we go out to work or live our own lives, we must decide how we are going to do it. When we continue to learn and then implement the knowledge we have accumulated and the abilities we have developed, we need to understand that how we do one thing is how we will do everything we do. At the end, it is all about performance.

Over the years we acquire new knowledge that we must apply; have experiences that we learn from; meet people and start developing a network whom we influence and who we learn from. These factors all combine into allowing us to be who we are today, at a personal and professional level.

It is here where Training, Performance and Focus intersect and define how we do all that we do, simple or complex. It determines our ability to perform in an excellent manner, consistently. Now we must apply the learning and experiences we get from life, and the keys we obtain from sports and martial arts.

Join me as we take the Training Intent of Martial Arts and give it an entrepreneurial meaning, so we can all benefit in our businesses.

The Keys to Entrepreneurial Success! by Luis Vicente Garcia

Luis Vicente Garcia Giliberti. Seminario Liderzago ante la Incertidumbre #1

When we talk about Business or entrepreneurial success, we might not be really sure what it is or how to define it; and this will prove to be critical. You need to know where you are today and where you are going; then, figure out your plan to get there.

Whether you have been in business for years or you are a start-up, things look harder and more difficult than what you originally thought, take more time and might have a bigger cost than planned. Your three main resources: time, team and money will be tested over and over again. What you need to do here is to understand what makes you apart, what is important for you and your company and how can you start redirecting some of the approaches and ideas you have been using in the past.

In all, you, your staff, team members and your company start talking about success and what it would mean to be successful (and yes we know we all measure Success in a different way).

There are many definitions on business success and in this program we will be discussing some ideas that will allow you to understand some of the Key Elements to Entrepreneurial Success.

CHANGE has a positive impact on your Performance! by Luis Vicente Garcia

Luis Vicente Garcia at the Entrepreneur Symposium_High Point University_Nov 2014

As we learn about how to improve our Performance we need to understand that learning about CHANGE is a critical and key ingredient for Success. We know that change happens when we alter the form or nature of something; I will include of someone as well. Change is always present in everything we do, whether it is in or personal or professional lives. It affects our society, our families and the companies we work and interact with.

George Bernard Shaw said “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” This is why understanding that change can have positive and everlasting implications of growth, evolution and transformation is extremely important in today’s world.

Join me in this episode as we see the concepts of performance and mindset from the perspective of becoming a change leader.

Crossroads of Life

Crossroads of Life

an_authentic_life

Have you ever found yourself in a position where all you have worked toward is right in front of you, but instead of a simple black and white decision you are presented with a handful of options? None clear cut. None with reassurance of long term happiness.
This situation embodies one of the most complicated tasks any of us will face in life – the concept of making the right decision. Every few seconds we have the opportunity to change our lives, our careers, our future, and the lives of many others, some of which we will never meet.

You already have the tools to succeed. It’s simply a mindset you need to access at the crossroads of life. Success is right there on the horizon. The question remains, how do you navigate the path ahead?
Here are some keys to weathering life’s crossroads:
1. Have a little faith and trust your gut. We all know, deep within ourselves, what we need to do — what we know, how to think, when to trust — during times of crisis. We can learn to access and trust our innate wisdom; it is personal and always available. When we don’t follow our inner guidance, we feel a loss of power and energy.
2. Move ahead with purpose. Pick one option, commit to it, and get moving with focused intention. Climb that mountain.
3. Take in the scenery. Once you’re moving, you’ll quickly feel whether it’s the right direction for you. Be in the moment and respect the value of being here and now. Allow yourself to feel the feedback that comes from action.
4. Adjust your course accordingly. Evaluate where there is room for improvement. Consider all the factors that led to the consequences and adjust your course and move forward with an increased awareness of how to navigate the path ahead.

Life’s too short to remain stuck. Life is experiential and full of difficult decisions. Every day holds new opportunities to learn and grow. Take life in your own hands and trust all you’ve learned and your inner wisdom. Enjoy the empowerment of traveling new paths and climbing the mountain. Readjust as needed and discover new heights. As W. Clement Stone once said, “Aim for the moon, if you miss it you may hit a star.”
