We all have the capability of communicating with the spirit world. Most adults choose not to very true. And it's not really a conscious choice. It's a fear based thing dairy true very very true. You're you're you know what you're systemically articulating this so well you are. I mean this way the way you're unpacking this for the collective is just so beautiful.

"Life journey. Either at my human south or at my soul south level That i needed to find a way to get unstuck from my from my human experience. So that i could actually see things with a bit more clarity. Yeah so You know. I can't prevent other soles from choosing to exit this life by the actions of their own hand. Dot is knowing place to do that. what i can say is that You know once this life is ended. They are greeted on the other side with such compassion and love And offered so much healing that It it absolutely defies human speech And when you feel that level of love and compassion which i have been gifted with feeling i mean it literally takes you to your knees. You can't even hold yourself upright anymore. it's just so beautiful it's it's beyond words But i think that unless you are very sure and most people who decide to end their life through a suicide deaths. They are trying desperately to end their own pain. Yes that's it that's all. They just want their pain doc. Q. let me ask you this Melissa so ethan. Ethan passed over when he was twenty five he just recently. If i'm understanding correctly relatively recently came through to you and physical form did he look like he was when he was twenty. Five or did you. What does that process of development and people changing an aging and spirit. Like did he look the same as he did when he was twenty five or did you see changes in him physically. Now you know He was very recognizable as himself in human form but not quite not quite the same And part of that is because in that in that fifth dimensional place it's an. It's an energetic place. It's not a physical place true and so while he can show himself in a physical body he has control over what that looks like to So as an example sometimes he shows up As his small self like he looked as a child and plays with my grandson. Who's who's six and my grandson doesn't recognize him as uncle ethan. While the case as if i'm getting emotional when you said that him coming back into childlike form like it didn't even talk about that. Yeah and so sometimes shows himself to because children young children are very much still connected to the spirit world so you know we hear about oh that has an imaginary playmate well no..

Racism, Opioids and COVID-19: A Deadly Trifecta

"Two thousand seventeen the governor of illinois implemented a plan to halt the explosive growth of opioid deaths in the state. The plan was to cut those deaths by at least a third by the end of twenty. Twenty twenty twenty was gonna be the turning point for illinois dua l. deeb is a reporter with propublica they're starting to see a decrease and opioid overdose deaths and they were really kind of making progress across the state and they were really hopeful but early last year duo got a tip that the number of opioid related deaths might actually be on the rise in the region so she and her colleague melissa. Sanchez started investigating the analyzed death records from the cook. County medical examiner's office. And what they found was alarming. We found that opioid overdoses surged and cook county and specifically in chicago and that those overdoses were disproportionately killing black residents. I think by the summer we had seen about hundred residents who had died of suspected or confirmed opium overdoses which is about double the number from the year before drug overdose deaths are on the rise all around the country. This was a nationwide problem that we're seeing kind of start to rise before the pandemic and then just continue as a pandemic ravaged our communities absolutely. This is the obvious question for me. Here is whether we have a sense of how much of this increase can be tied to the coronavirus pandemic so cova didn't cause the spike but like everything else that made it worse the financial stress the isolation The desperation all of that seems to be really exacerbating things and then when we talk about isolation with opioid. Use one of the things that they say. Is you know if you're gonna use use with someone else so that then they can administer naloxone the opioid overdose reversal drug. But you know people were not using with others

So that is comparison itis and a majority of people are suffering with it right now. There is healthy comparison and there is unhealthy comparison and a lot of us a suffering with the unhealthy comparison. So like with all of my books. I write them for myself. Because i'm dealing with that at that time in my life and comparison itis was something that i was definitely dealing with whilst i was riding i was suffering the worst of the worst case of comparison. Itis i was constantly comparing myself to others on social media in my friendship circle. All of these women who were getting pregnant around me quite quickly and it took my husband and i eighteen months so that was a huge eighteen month battle of severe comparison itis and i remember the one day i was scrolling instagram whilst i was on the toilet and as you do as you do i was. I came across this new york times. Bestselling author who had just ridden her hundredth book and Was again a new york times bestseller. And i found myself comparing myself to her. You know why why on my books new york times still is like. I'm not good enough. Maybe my writings notice good. What's going on. And i went into this really unhealthy toxic spiral of comparison itis and then i came back upstairs to my and i sat down on my computer and i got an email from this beautiful girl. Who was telling me that. She's writing her first book. And did i have any words of wisdom for her because she was comparing herself to me and she said you know. I'm comparing myself do you. You've written so many bestselling books. And i had this lightbulb moment. That here i was comparing myself to someone else whilst someone else was comparing themselves to me.

The Science of Building Better Relationships With Marissa King

"Here. We go now with melissa king. Okay mercer king great to meet you. Thanks for coming on. It's how did you get interested in this subject. Social networks social chemistry so many people. I feel like you we studying. We teach what we need and that was certainly the case for me. I had spent decades of my career understanding social networks in particular trying to understand how networks related to outcomes like mental health and wellbeing. But what was interesting is when it came time for me to start my own career. I kept getting this advice saying you know you need to get out. You need to network to meet people. But based on everything. I knew from science at that actually was really misguided. Advice and for me actually created a big obstacle to authentically connecting with people in developing relationships in ways that were both meaningful to me and also consistent with what we know is helpful research and so i really wanted to write the book to help other people who have had more experience to me and just almost debilitated by the idea of feeling like they need to get out network. Which simply isn't true. So if you don't need to get out network but you do need to know people in order to get anything done. Where's the sweet spot. When we're thinking about networking we have this idea and our mind that we need to meet new people or we need a larger network and that makes perfect sense. It's one of the easiest things to see and understand his simply. How many people you know but what we know is for almost every outcome the would carry about if you think about what we know from what network research it. Networks are associated with the hood of pay promotion career success our physical wellbeing even being in poverty network is associated with a heightened risk of premature mortality or even our happiness in simply just how satisfied with life for every single one of those outcomes networks matter but it's not the size of your network or how many people you know it's actually the quality of your network in the structure of your network the configuration of your social relationships and by starting to understand what we mean by quality and what we mean by structure we can develop networks are actually much more effective than simply just meeting new

Nvidia to Directly Challenge Intel With Arm-Based Server Chip

"For we start off tonight with a semi smackdown the gloves coming off in the battle of the giants. Invidia fires of direct shot at intel. Let's get straight to. Josh lipton with all the details josh so melissa ceo jensen wong is transformed into a true powerhouse. With that companies graphics chips these are processors that generate images and accelerate. Now video plans to make its own servers. Cpu to those are the primary brains in most computing devices in video. Also saying t. That's first quarter. Revenue is tracking above its previous outlook of five point. three billion. And that's doc posted. Its best day here over a month. Some investors clearly saw in announcement as a direct shot at intel with reported twenty six billion in revenue permits data center group in two thousand and twenty. That was a jump eleven percent. that's doctors had. Its worst day since late february. So how bad is this news. Though for pat gelsinger techy. Patrick moore had capturing that his copy still does both certain advantages invidia with his new service is targeting more of a niche market. Patrick says and intel's still the giants dominates about ninety percent of this market. No response from intel on that invidia news. There was also that big one chip summit today remember. President binds infrastructure plan does include fifty billion dollars to the american chip industry. Melissa back to you josh. Quick question on the niche market point. How big is this market. Or how profitable is this to make the such a big deal that they're going after specifically this narrow part of the market. You're going after what it's called the hp hp mortgage so that is a market that would include things like national lab laboratories like los alamos. That's why patrick moorhead. In his point was saying one. These are different. Intel as dominating about ninety percent of that service you market and patrick's point is that intel's focus is different. It's really targeting. More general business uses and cloud providers. But we'll see how it plays out and listen

"On the move jesse fills the rest of his time competing in a variety of sports. Jesse is a former five-time crotty ontario champion military biathlon champion and an ironman triathlete. While out. it sounds better when you read it. Melissa does it. Yeah sounds more confident it is. It's extremely so back to my question. Jesse can diverse job seekers due to stand out in the corporate recruitment process. I think it's all job. Seekers can do but particularly diverse candidates. There's a lot of things that can be done. But i think what is imperative for candidates to understand what's happening on the other side. Unfortunately the reality of the market is when recruiters of all types are screening resumes. It typically becomes an exercise in exclusion not inclusion so disheartening. As it might be to hear that. I want to give you an image. I want you to picture a junior or maybe at best intermediate recruiter. That has a hundred to five hundred resumes to screen in a single day so black and white black and white black and white. It's impossible for us to take the time and read your entire resume word for were line for line so we skim them and different critters have different techniques and in most cases it.

"melissa" Discussed on Do The Thing, with Whole30's Melissa Urban

"Early, I didn't know anything about willpower at this point or the science of habit and change I didn't realize that willpower was highest first thing the morning. So anything that felt physically or emotionally or mentally daunting. There's a management theory that you should tackle that I in your day when willpower is highest and you can give yourself a big. Big. Win Put the hardest thing behind you. I didn't know any of that I just thought I want to start going to the gym and unhealthy person would get up early in the morning to go to the gym. So I would wake up at five am and I had about a forty minute commute to work, but I found a gym right near my office. So I would get super early be out the door in twenty minutes. Strive to the gym get my workout in then I, would go to the office take. Take a shower, get dressed me my post workout shake and I would start my day by about seven thirty or eight o'clock I think starting with this routine served me. Well, for a couple of reasons. The first thing is that it forced me to really think about what I needed to do to make this morning routine successful. So the night before I would get all of my clothes for work ready. I would lay out all of my gym clothes right down to my underwear and socks in the spare room I would. Would get my lunch ready and pack up all of my snacks and anything. I wanted to take to the office because I knew that if I had to stop and prep stuff in the morning like five am it would probably derail the entire routine. So forcing myself to think about what do I need to be successful with us was really really helpful. There's another piece to this too that I wanna mention because it is something that I have maintained sense day one. So for the last twenty years, I don't hit snooze. I decided that if I was going to go to the gym in the morning and I wanted to get as much sleep as I could. I was just going to have to go to bed early enough that when the alarm went off, I would immediately turn it off and get up and go. There was no snoozing for nine minutes because nine minutes turned into eighteen minutes, which then meant. I. Really didn't have enough time. Time for a good workout and more often than not, I would just want to skip. So that was one of the pieces of my morning routine is the alarm would go off. There would be no snooze. I did not deviate from this once not once, I'm very much a Gretchen Rubin Upholder Aena Graham Type Eight. When I say I'm going to do something I, do it. So the alarm goes off, do not hit. Hit. Snooze. I. Go Straight to the GYM, get my workout in, and that was my morning routine for about ten years until two, thousand, ten when I quit my full time job to take hold thirty full-time, my co founder and I had been doing whole thirty stuff nights and weekends for the better part of a year and a half, and it finally came time to pull the trigger and see if we could make..

"You don't <Speech_Female> have to worry about it. Blunting <Speech_Female> the recovery response <Speech_Female> in fact, <Speech_Female> because cold <Speech_Female> showers do <Speech_Female> provoke a stress response. <Speech_Female> He <Speech_Female> recommends avoiding doing <Speech_Female> them at night in <Speech_Female> general, because <Speech_Female> it might mess with <Silence> your sleep, <Speech_Female> the other thing <Speech_Female> he mentioned is that there <Speech_Female> could be benefit <Speech_Female> in doing a cold <Speech_Female> shower or <Speech_Female> bath. Right <Speech_Female> before your training <Speech_Female> and that it's a central <Speech_Female> nervous system. System Primer, <Speech_Female> so <Speech_Female> that could be a benefit <Speech_Female> as well <Speech_Female> so I would say this. <Speech_Female> Do it first thing <Speech_Female> in the morning. If you <Speech_Female> happen to train in the morning, <Speech_Female> double bonus, <Speech_Female> if you've <Speech_Female> been doing cold <Speech_Female> showers at <Speech_Female> night, and you do <Speech_Female> find them relaxing <Speech_Female> and soothing. <Speech_Female> Okay, you can still <Speech_Female> do that, but <Speech_Female> if you're new to to it I <Speech_Female> highly recommend keeping <Speech_Female> them in the morning. <Speech_Female> All of those <Speech_Female> reasons <Speech_Female> and then the last <Speech_Female> question because every <Speech_Female> single person <Speech_Female> in my instagram <Speech_Female> comments has been asking <Speech_Female> how you shave. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> you could shave <Speech_Female> in a cold shower, but <Speech_Female> the goosebumps <Speech_Female> that you get would probably <Speech_Female> make it really uncomfortable <Speech_Female> so <Speech_Female> when I needed to <Speech_Female> shave I just <Speech_Female> take a second hot <Speech_Female> shower leader <Speech_Female> in the day, so <Speech_Female> my first shower.

"Commitment to yourself if you constantly surround yourself with people who are either overtly overtly or subtly pressuring you to go back to your old behaviors? James Clear talked about this and our recent podcast and Nedra an I spoke about this to that part of self sabotage is putting yourself in these risky situations so if you decide that it is time to perhaps expand upon your social circle. It's not one or the other you don't have to necessarily let your current trends go but maybe you WanNa make them new like minded friends. That are more health focused and whose lives don't revolve around alcohol. What's the best way to meet New People? Well this is gonNA sound kind of obvious but meet people where you would want to hang out. So don't go to the bars on Friday night hoping to meet New People and then draw them into this life. That doesn't revolve around the bar that that doesn't really make a lot of sense. Go places where you're going to meet people who think like you. Maybe it's a class at the gym or the Yoga Studio. Maybe it's on a group hike. AAC maybe you're taking a cooking class. Maybe you sign up for lessons at the Rock Climbing Gym. Go places where you're going to meet people who WanNa do the same kinds of things that you do and that way you remove some of the friction associated with this like I want a drink all the time and you're not a drinker. That's the best thing to do and I should probably do an entire podcast about making friends as an adult because having moved to Salt Lake City about ten years ago not knowing anybody and not going to the bars now going to an office here in Salt Lake. It was really hard to make friends. So I'm going to put a note down for myself that that's going to be another podcast episode but look for New People in an environment where you would actually want to spend time one of you asked. How do I navigate events that are totally? Alcohol centered like a wine tasting. Here is another cold hard truth. You don't go to those events if the entirety of the event is about tasting wine or tasting ear or if it's a whiskey class where you get to sample various kinds of whiskey and you're not drinking. You don't go if someone invited you to a yoga a class and you really don't like yoga you wouldn't go. It's the same situation here. There are tons of social situations that involve alcohol but are not Centered on alcohol. Absolutely go to those continue to go. Don't drink all the tips. I'm giving you and have a great time. But if the entirety of the event is centered around Booze News. Don't go to those events and again if that's all your friends WanNa seem to do. If they only want to do wine tastings and Whiskey tastings brewery brewery tours. You need a new social circle. That's like the truth of that situation. A dear friend of mine asked this question and it's a good one because I struggled with this one myself. A glass of wine is so romantic and cozy with a friend. How can I replace that? I had the exact same team feeling during a whole thirty a couple years ago. I have a group of girlfriends here in Salt Lake. There's five of us. We liked to get together and sit on the patio. Oh on a beautiful summer day and drink a glass of wine. Nobody was a big drinker. I don't think anyone ever had more than like two glasses in an evening but there was something think about that that did feel very romantic and cozy and I really struggled with. What are we going to do instead? The key was just to show up at that advent and not have a glass of wine and realized that you're still sitting on a patio. You're still surrounded by some of your best girlfriends. It wasn't until I did the the activity without alcohol that it made me realize that the alcohol isn't the cozy part of that scenario. It's the set and the setting and the people that you're with and so the advice I would give you. My friend is just to eliminate alcohol from that equation and experience what that relationship would be like outside of alcohol and this is something else. That's GONNA come up again and again which is you are not able to show up as your most authentic addict self if you have alcohol between you meaning even one glass of wine throws me outside of my authentic self enough that I am now no longer longer able to connect as fully as I want with the people I am with and if the point of this meeting is to really connect with that friend and and bond and share and have those like good you know oxytocin boosting results wine. I will tell you only gets in the way of that. Ah So have. Their romantic and cozy event eliminate alcohol from the occasion and realize that. It's not actually about the wine and then you're free three then if you do decide that you want glass of wine the next time it's fantastic and you can enjoy it because it's worth it but you realize that you don't need it. I'll also say this if you're stuck on this idea of like but we always go out for drinks. What else are we supposed to do? I mean there are a million other things that you could do with your friends. I I love going out for tea or coffee so we will meet in the mid afternoon or even if it's in the evening I'll do a pot of herbal tea and like that's just as warm and cozy invite her to here house and Cook a meal together. That's incredibly romantic in cozy your shopping. You've got a playlist on your saw taking your cooking. Then you sit down over a table and eat beat ticks all my boxes. One of my favorite activities to do with friends is gopher or walk. Meet at a park or on a trail. It doesn't have to be a hike but there's something about being outside having the green space having the fresh air and maybe some sunshine and also research shows. This is super interesting. But if you want to have a really open. Authentic conversation with someone. Sitting side by side or walking side-by-side facilitates that better than facing facing each other. Because it feels less vulnerable so inviting a friend out to go for a walk is another really fantastic way of actually connecting acting that isn't centered around going out for a drink. So maybe it's just this idea of getting outside of what you've always done and starting a new tradition. This same conversation applies to dating. I had a lot of people who ask. How do I navigate dating and not drinking? One person actually wrote dating is hard enough without feeling like the Weirdo all right. We're going to tackle that one in a minute but this same thought process applies here as it does to going out for drinks with friends and if you are meeting someone for the very first time you WanNa make it super clear that you're not a big drinker or that you're not drinking at all so if they if your first State says do you WanNa meet for drinks the easiest thing to do is just to say. Actually I don't drink. Would you like to go out for coffee instead or I'm not drinking right now and to be honest. I'm not a big drinker in general. Would you like to meet for coffee instead. Get that right out in the open because if they likes going out for drinks all the time that's not going to be your person and you might as well find that out now talk about setting yourself up for success if you WANNA make new like minded friends or you want to make a new like minded partner. Make sure that that I encounter is really authentic to who you really are if they invited you out for golfing. You didn't play golf you you would say no. I don't golf. Golf is their life. They would.

"To feel more connected to your community and your fellow humans but didn't require investing hours of your time or drawing going deep from your energetic resources. I discovered just this source more than six years ago and it kind of changed my life today. I wanna tell you about my melissa talks to strangers experiment and how you might discover that talking to strangers is the thing that's been missing missing in your longing for more real connection in your life. I grew up on the east coast and i spent most of my life there. I was born and raised in new hampshire and lived in various cities in new hampshire like basically all my life and here's how i describe east coasters. Were not rude. We just don't need to talk to you. If you're from the east coast. Maybe you can relate. We do things really fast and unless it's transactional or i actually know you. There's very little reason to start a conversation nation and this is always worked just fine for me because as an upholder i just want to get things done and so i don't need any unnecessary conversation around around my transactional experience with you. Also i'm an introvert and as an introvert. It's expensive for me to give you my energy like the more time i spend engaging with the people out in the world the more time i need by myself to recharge so i would not spend my social currency on things like you know talking to my cashier or my bank. Tell our or my barista. I would save it for family and friends and i would keep those engagements to a very cursory like high and thanks now. I don't know if everyone we went on the east. Coast is like this but this is definitely my experience and i noticed a huge difference when i go home to visit now compared to where i live now which is utah so i moved out here to the west about nine years ago and i immediately discovered that the culture here is very different so our first week here we walked into a local grocery store here called liberty heights fresh and our cashier greeted us with this super chirpy. Hey how are you guys doing anything fun this weekend and and my partner at the time who's originally from british columbia in an extrovert boot totally chatted her up so happily and i bagged groceries <unk> gave her like a weird little side and we walked out of the store and i remember saying she doesn't know us. Why does she care what we're doing this weekend and he had to explain to me that people are different in the west and other parts of the country and that chatting up strangers is pretty normal occurrence. I thought it was really weird and i did did not participate for a long time so long that like very often when i would be out in public engaging people would say you're not from here. Are you but in two thousand thirteen i thought okay i live here now. I should probably try to fit in a little better so over lunch. One day i hatched this experiment. Melissa talks to strangers. I called it so for thirty days. I committed that i would talk to basically everyone that i came into contact with for more than a few seconds so so this was like wait staff baristas the front desk person at the gym might uber driver every one. I thought it would be really weird and awkward but actually turns is out that it wasn't. I thought people would think i was weird but i couldn't believe how like ninety nine percent of people happily opened up right away. I learned to ask open but noninvasive questions like anything exciting happened today or that. Tattoo is really interesting. Did you get it done around here or stealing from my liberty heights cashier doing anything fun this weekend. I'd hear stories of wonderful an awful customers. I'd hear about an exam. They were studying for a a party. They were throwing favorite meals. They've eaten or cooked like we talked about kids and partners and foods and hikes and travel and every subject under the sun it is remarkable how much you can cover in just a few minutes with a total stranger but we would end up in these randomly begun conversations conversations. I would get a glimpse just a really small glimpse in narrow window into some aspect of their life for just a minute or two but these glimpses were so rich they felt so nourishing from a total stranger someone i would probably never see again. I noticed that car share rides. Were a a huge opportunity. I was traveling for thirty. I was in uber's and left's allot. I would always have like fifteen or twenty minutes at least to draw out my driver's vers leith experience so i heard about the motorcycles they rode the trips. They took the marriages that were flourishing like. I asked more than one uber driver who mentioned he'd been married for more than twenty five years like what's your secret. What's your advice and they were always so happy to share. I heard about marriages ending. I heard about kids. They were proud of. I heard about their kids with addiction and interestingly. I heard a lot of their own recovery stories. It feels like the universe put me in a lot of cars with a lot of recovering addicts and alcoholics so so that was interesting. I learned through these interactions that everyone has a story and every single person. I talked to was really really interesting. I could not believe how much i enjoyed these interactions. I met some remarkable people. I used to share them on instagram under the hashtag melissa talks to strangers so we'd take photos with them right snap a picture of like their steering wheel or their now empty exit row seat but i would share these experiences inches on instagram talking about all the incredible strangers i met and what we talked about. I met professional athletes. I met pilots. I met authors parents grandparents. I was going back through my old photos does and i remembered a dashing former race car driver named gus so apparently if you watch my instagram stories you know i have a soft spot for older men named gus but i remember when i told gus what kind of motorcycle road he laughed and said that's the first bike i ever stole does might be the coolest person i've ever met. I i also learned that these interactions didn't have to be particularly meaningful to fill me up. Sometimes they were really meaningful. So once i it was in california on book tour and my escort was driving me back from an event we had a significant amount of time stuck in traffic and she mentioned how much she really enjoyed hearing me talk hawk because her daughter is also recovering addict and that led to a long very heartfelt conversation about how helpless she feels and how much she default like it was her fault and it was me reassuring her that it wasn't and telling her all of the ways that she is already supporting her daughter and how she can support her daughter. It was a really he leave meaningful conversation and a few of those where it was obvious that god put me in this person's path for a reason but without my talking to strangers experiment everyman we never would have really connected. I would say most of them. Were just surface level connections a few like chit chats back and forth and then i left there line or got up from the table but still i was completely surprised by how much i gained from each and every one of these experiences one minute here two minutes there a couple times throughout my day. It left me feeling so good. I was so much happier after i left those engagements and i feel like the people full i left. Were happier to like. We were both smiling. We were both laughing. I feel like i made someone else's day a little bit better and i absolutely know that it made my day better. Another unexpected benefit was that it made me really good at small talk for things like parties or work events. I was already like pretty comfortable in that environment environment but when you get to practice several times a day in these completely safe environments it really bumps up your small talk game like no matter what in these talking stranger experiments your interaction is limited like at some point. I'm walking away and i may not see them again. Chances are never going to so. There's like no pressure whatsoever. It's awkward. If i say something don which i'll tell you about later 'cause i have said my share of dumb things. It's a cautionary tale years years learn and do something different next time but eventually i moved away from like how's your day going to coming up with really creative ways to open conversations nations and i practised staying really present for just those few moments which made me even more comfortable to walk into a party where i didn't know anybody. One of the most common questions i get when i talk about this experiment is what do you do if someone doesn't wanna talk. I honestly can only remember like maybe one or or two times where someone didn't wanna talk like i would open with like something funny or at ask a question and they would just sort of brush it off. Maybe it happened more often than i'm remembering like honestly ninety nine percent of the time. People were really happy to engage with me. I would say it was way more frequent that i didn't wanna talk. I would be in a bad mood. It'd be cranky. Rinke would be overtired. I'd be like over socialized and i would think to myself like i do not wanna come up with something nice to say to this total stranger but i'm gretchen rubin upholder holder so for the sake of the experiment. I would force myself to do it anyway. The most interesting part was that when i was at my crankiest or the most down talking to this total stranger even for just a few minutes completely lifted my spirits. It was an instant and powerful transformation. I was so whole again. I keep saying blown away but like this whole experiment was just so shocking to me that these short interactions with total strangers could affect me so much it was such a powerful lesson in the beauty of human connection and occasionally. These interactions did lead to so much more than just a two-minute interaction with a stranger. My waitress takashi became a friend in real life and now owns my favorite breakfast pot where i see her regularly. I follow more than in one of my starbucks baristas on instagram.

"She writes, dear Melissa. I need help with self-care particularly around saying, no when work family, friends or life events come up that I don't wanna go to or feel to drain to attend. I always feel like I have to go like they're all obliga- Sion's. That's a really great question. Amanda, in fact, when I asked you recently, what topics, he wanted me to cover in these, dear Melissa segments boundaries, how to set them how to hold them was the number one requested topic? I think this idea of setting boundaries around saying, no it's difficult one. If you're a Gretchen Rubin, oblige her oblige URS respond very well to external expectations. So someone invites you, you feel like they expect you to come, and it's very hard to resist that it's also very hard for obliges too. Hold their inner expectation, which is I actually need to take care of myself right now in saying no to this event would be self care. I do not have this problem. I'm Gretchen Rubin upholder. I've never been a people pleaser. It's not hard for me to say no, it's very easy for me to evaluate my own need for self care against this opportunity to attend. Whatever event happens to be around the corner, but I have learned some tricks along the way because it's not always easy, especially when family or work are involved. And so I've learned some ways to, to help me figure out, whether I really do need to say, yes. Or whether I can hold my boundary instinct to myself care. One thing you can do is questioned. The stressful thoughts associated with attending the event so the first one you could question is I have to attend this event is that true. Like, do you really have to attend the event, if it's your own wedding or your mom's fiftieth birthday party, or a mandatory worked meeting, then, yes, you probably have? To be there. But when you really think about it in my own life, I would say ninety two percent of my social invitations are actually optional. I don't have to go. So thinking about do I really have to attend? This event helps me understand the significance of the event, the impact if I do say, no. And I can then way that against my need for self care. You can also question the stressful thought I don't want to attend this event, ask yourself. Is that true? Do you really not want to attend? Or maybe they're just a particular circumstance in that event that you're avoiding, like I don't wanna be out late tonight or my conservative uncle, and I are going to fight again, or I don't want to have to talk about my break-up, if there's a specific circumstance. That is preventing you from wanting to attend or is draining your capacity to attend. Now, you can ask yourself will do anything to mitigate that I might wanna go to this thing. If. If it wasn't for this doctor. So can you create an if then plan like if someone asks about my break-up, then I'll say it's been tough, but I'm getting through it. Let's talk about something else. Or maybe you can tell your mom to run point if you know, this family member you disagree with starts running their mouth, or you can set an expectation early that you can only pop in for a while. So if you don't wanna be out late. Yeah, I'd love to come. I can only stay for about an hour or so. And then if you find yourself having a great time, there's no reason you can't stay for longer. So questioning the stressful thought around the event might help you get clarity around, whether you do actually want to go and what the consequences might be if you don't go. In fact, that's one of my very favorite tricks. And it's something that my dad taught me a couple months ago. So I was up against my book deadline, but I was also battling the symptoms of my concussion, and I was working myself into the ground to get the book deadline. Don and work on the podcast and work on the way. Website, redesign, and keep my kid alive, and I was doing all of this to the detriment of my own house. So my dad was visiting one weekend and I mentioned during the weekend that I might pop up stairs to write for an hour. And he knew about the book deadline, any looked at me and he said, what's going to happen, if you don't and I was like, what do you mean? And he's like, what's going to happen if you don't turn the book on time and immediately, I was like, oh, well, it's going to be awful. I'm under contract and I have to turn it in on time. And if I've never met never missed a deadline in my life, and he interrupted me and he was like, what's going to happen, if you don't and when I really sat and thought about it. I said, nothing I'm going to tell my editor I need a few more days, and he's gonna say, no problem and that was like an eye opening lightbulb moment for me because I feel like book four we ask ourselves this question, what's gonna happen? If you don't we tend to like, have this airy cloud of dread. Surrounding what would happen if we said? No. Right. It's my first reaction when my dad has the question, which is all my gosh. Everything will be horrible. It's gonna fall apart. Life is going to end as we know it. But if we really dial in on the question when I really stop to think about it and came back with concrete. Realistic answers I realized that saying, no didn't actually have major repercussions, so you know, won't always be like this sometimes saying, no will actually be problematic, like you can't say no to your sister's wedding, even if you don't really wanna go you kind of have to show up. But in most cases, the actual consequences of saying, no are probably pretty minor, like you might miss the opportunity to connect with co workers at the happy hour, or you might get some good natured flak at the next family event for skipping out, or you might hand the book in a few days late. But once you realize the world isn't going to end. You may feel empowered to weigh the car. Quences of saying no against the benefits, you'll gain from holding your boundaries and sticking to yourself care in that instance I did take the weekend off. I did spend it with my family. I did hand the book in a couple of days late. And literally nothing happened. Like what a wow moment for me. Slow clap for my dad now after going through some of these tricks, if you do decide to say no to the event who is don't make up some kind of generic excuse or lie or fake illness to get out of it. You need to practice sticking up for yourself and holding your boundaries and that has to start here. So if you do decide to say, no, Tele truth, and keep it personal. You can say things like my schedule's been really full and I'm rundown. I really need a night at home or I wish I could but you guys are getting started too late. And I've got to get up early in the morning. Sleep is really important to me right now, you can also leave yourself out when you get the invitation. If you're not sure whether you'll have the energy. Event day. So I recently gave this advice to a friend of mine who travels a lot for business, every time, he travels, he's fielding invitations from people saying, oh, you're a see, you're in my town, do you wanna meet for dinner and he texted me from the road a couple of weeks ago when he said, how do you handle this? Like I know I'm in your town. I know we're friends, but I have a really busy schedule, and I don't know if I'm going to be up for this. So what I said to him, was just say that. Hey texter, my schedule's pretty full when I'm in town. But if I have the capacity for meat up, I'll send you a text. And if you happen to be free would love to get together. So no expectations, it leaves the door open should you decide you do want to attend? But now you don't have this obligation during a time where you are already probably stressed or overtired or slightly run down. Finally, if you've been a people pleaser all your life. Don't be surprised when people get mad when you start setting boundaries and holding them. They are very. To you responding the way you've always responded, and they know they can count on. You even if they're kinda taking advantage, or even if you don't wanna do it. And when you change that behavior, and you start standing up for yourself and putting yourself care, I they may not like it. But remember, their reaction is not your problem. Stay in your integrity, communicate effectively an openly but hold fast. You might find that releasing the expectation that every time they ask you have to go makes you even more willing to say. Yes, so there you go. Amanda, I hope that advice helps thank you so much for writing in to do the thing..

"melissa" Discussed on Do The Thing, with Whole30's Melissa Urban

"Hi. My name is Melissa urban, and your listening to do the thing, a podcast where we explore what's been missing every time you've tried to make a change, and make it stick. Today. I'm answering three of your questions. Dear Melissa style will discuss whether staying on the whole thirty longer than thirty days is the way to achieve additional weight loss goals, how mentally hurting disaster when you find things going well in your life can backfire so hard and how to gracefully, but firmly respond to people asking, if you're pregnant, because you turn down a drink. There's a common thread in all of these discussions about the stories we tell ourselves in stressful situations. I hope by exploring these stories, you'll have your own lightbulb moment and be able to hold your boundaries. Shift your perspective, and successfully do the thing, the first dear Melissa question. I'll answer today, I've received so many times since the release of food, freedom forever in two thousand sixteen and it goes like this, dear Melissa, if I still have additional weight to lose shouldn't I just stay on the whole thirty. Can I really afford to move into food freedom? And the essence of the question is actually this, if I have additional weight to lose do I get to move into food, freedom. The I think premise of this question is I'm doing the whole thirty. I know it's not a weight loss diet, but by changing my habits and my health, and my emotional relationship with food, I have lost weight. And if I still have more way to lose shouldn't I just stay in the rules of the program to facilitate me achieving that goal? And the answer is no. In fact, there are so many reasons why staying on the whole thirty because you have a goal weight in mind is actually counterproductive to that goal. So the first thing I'll say is this. I'm not going to tell you not to have a weight loss goal. All that is your business, and though, I will encourage you to approach your health goals in general, from place of self love and self care to do it, helpfully and sustainably to really think about all of the other factors that go into health and wellness and happiness, besides body weight. I'm not gonna tell you not to have a weight loss goal that's entirely up to you. But I will tell you that if you do still have weight to lose according to your own definition staying on the whole thirty is not the answer. I if you decide to stay on the whole thirty until you reach your goal weight. What does that sound like to you, you're on a diet, the whole thirty is no longer a reset? It's no longer an elimination diet. It's no longer about changing your health and your habits and your emotional relationship with food. You've now essentially turned the whole thirty into just another crappy diet, which has never. Worked for you before so thinking about the whole thirty even for the first thirty days, you do it for the right reasons, and in the right way, and you're really embracing the spirit and intention of the program. If you extend to a whole sixty or whole ninety specifically to see if you can lose more weight, you are now bastardising the program to the point where it will not be effective for your purpose because it wasn't built for this, and you didn't sign up for it for this. So don't try to shove this kind of weight loss goal into the framework of the whole thirty because it's not gonna work 'cause it's never worked before, you know, it also feels to me, very punishing. Do I get to move into food freedom? If I still have way to lose no you do not. You must stay in the whole thirty until you achieve your goal weight that is your punishment for your body weight. Like that's not the language or the intention or the mindset that we embrace that whole thirty. And that's not the mindset. That you embraced when you began the whole thirty this is not about punishing yourself. It's not about as signing worth or value to your body weight. And so even asking the question makes it seem as though you feel like you still need to be punished for your body weight. And that is not at all the message that I want to send through the whole thirty another reason I don't want you staying on the whole thirty with the express intention of losing more weight. Is that staying on the program for this reason keeps you obsessing about your body, weight, you know, for the first thirty days, you are embracing the spirit and intention of the program, you were looking for non scale victories, you are denting all the areas in your life, including habits, and your emotional relationship with food that were getting better. But staying on the program specifically because you think you have more weight to lose. Now means you're on the program for weight loss. And the only thing you're going to be focused on is your body weight. So on thirty six

"Podcast. Episode one. Oh, five. I am Melissa hunter. Your host also known to some people on the internet as mommy and this week. I want to talk to you about gratitude now I know this is an overused word technique law kinds of stuff in the self help world and the success world in religion and everything else that's out there. But you know what just shut up and be grateful. There's a reason sometimes that things get overused. Sometimes it's because it's a buzzword, like low hanging fruit or take it to the next level, or we're going to ten exit and sometimes it's because it's a tried and true throughout eternity thing. The people just need to do, and that people are not doing the reason why gratitude over. In the past decade, or so has become such a hot topic is because people have stopped being grateful. We have just become a society of complaining babies. I'm sorry. This is a little bit negative for me. I'm usually a lot more positive because I'm actually really grateful to be here. Folks, you know, people think that I'm just sometimes a little bit of a pollyanna that I see things as positive all the time. And there's a reason for that, it's because I've spent my entire life battling depression anxiety, in, so I have to be consciously aware all the time of what my mind is doing. That's how I mean tain my mental health and it's interesting Jared pedal aqui from supernatural. Don't laugh at me. I'm a supernatural. Fan and jarred is an amazing mental health warrior, and he said at a supernatural convention last year, that you need to get aggressive about yourself care, and your mental health, and that's absolutely true. You need to be really aggressive about this, and you need to get aggressive about gratitude people because if you're miserable, the reason you're miserable is because you don't realize how awesome your life actually is. So let me kind of try to give you the Melissa perspective, and the maybe you can apply this to your life. So for two years while I was well, I still am. But so for two years, I was going through an MS therapy called Teis Avary was a once a month infusion the stuff was great. You can only do it for two years, though, because after that, then your risk for a brain eating infection that. Would leave you a vegetable or kill you and my risk was particularly high because I had a high tighter this particular virus in my body, but I could do it for two years, which was awesome that two years bought me time until other therapies became available that we're able to get me under control. So I'm very grateful for those two years. But during those two years every month, I would go to the chemotherapy center at our at our medical center. And I would be sitting there me, you You know. know dragging a foot a little tired. A little numb as spasms here, and there me poor little me surrounded by women my age, who were skin and bones who were hairless vomiting, struggling, they were fighting for their lives against one form of cancer or another. And sometimes, I would see the new people in this was their first chemo treatment, and they had all the questions and they would look around at the other people in that room. It's not a private situation. I'll just sitting in these chairs sort of arranged in a circle staring at each other. It's kind of a very strange situation and, you know, and I could see the look in their eyes. Like, oh, my God, that's gonna be me and six weeks, twelve weeks. And I would sit there and I would thank God I would be so. Grateful that I only mess, and that MS while inconvenient was not going to kill me. And so I was really, really grateful. And I was reminded every month to be so grateful, that this is what I got in God willing, this is all I will get. And I'm good with that. I am totally good with that. I could be in a wheelchair five years from now. God forbid, it looks like that's not gonna happen. But if it happened, I would still be grateful, because my brother reminded me when I first got diagnosed they were, they were looking at the time to decide if the big thing on my spinal cord was a lesion MS, or if it was a spinal cord tumor, and I said being rational frame of mind, I really wanted to be a spinal cord tumor because then they can cut it out. I can. Radiation or chemotherapy, and then I'll be able to dance at my daughter's wedding, and my brother. Michael said. If it's MS he'll make it to your daughter's wedding. Even if you're in a wheelchair if it's a spinal cord tumor, you might not live to see your daughter's wedding. And I was like, ooh reality check your right? It cancer actually is worse cancer, Trump's MS every time. So that's kind of the way I look at things, I'm like a super grateful person. And I spend an awful lot of time in my consulting practice coming across people who complain a lot, and, and people like to come to me to complain and more and more. I've been shutting them down because it's like don't harsh my mellow. If you're coming to me, because you want my systens you want to hire me, you want my consulting, my coaching my advice. Hey, I'm here. But know that I'm going to give you a pep talk crying. And we're gonna talk about the first. Thing that you need to do is to stop with this complaining thing that you're doing the over problem. It's deal with it. Let's look at how we can fix it. Let's talk about some techniques so we can get you to a better place. Don't just keep coming to me, complaining and complaining and complaining and complaining. I mean you need to put perspective around your life. Sometimes you're listening to a podcast right now which means that you live somewhere on this planet where you are able to listen to a podcast keep in mind that millions if not billions of people. Do not have the technology to listen to a podcast. As a matter of fact, they don't have clean water. Take a moment. Take that in and be grateful. And I'm asking everybody in life to just stop for a second and be amazed because if you're listening to this podcast believe you live in, in society where you can listen to a podcast where you have enough money to go buy a latte, half calf. Allman mill splendid of Frappuccino over ice with some cold foam, right? I mean you live in that world you live in a world where you don't just make a Cup of coffee in your mister coffee at home anymore. You live in a world where you're walking around with this lake amazing electric device with these thing in your ears. And you're listening to someone talk to you while you're going to a job or picking your kid from school or. While you're going for a walk or exercising at the gym, because you have to exercise at the gym, because getting old, and you're gaining wheat, and you gotta lose weight because you don't walk five miles each way to get probably cholera infested war. Let's let's get you'll gratitude hat on. And while you're walking on the treadmill or, or standing on this crowded subway, which in July smells, heinous be grateful for the fact that you're there, and that you're not somewhere else. How about being grateful that you woke up this morning, less Brown said, you know, any day above ground is a great day. Sometimes it seems reductive I know. But guys, it's true. I mean you can be part of the heard of bleeding complaining cows, who are just logging around in the field all day. This axe move move. My life's moods grass every day, right? Or you could be brave and you could be bold and you could become a bird and you can join me up here in the sky. Now, I will tell you that I've fly alone a lot, but it's really cool. The view from up here is amazing. It's breathtaking. It's all inspiring, and I'm, I'm so happy, and I feel so blessed because I'm grateful. I'm grateful for everything. I'm grateful that I'm sitting here doing this podcast right now. I am grateful that my husband put together these really awesome at Iran, dictators that thanks to having a YouTube channel we were able to purchase because if we did not have YouTube channel things would be a little bit tighter around here, and there wouldn't be money to do extra, get really cute at Rhonda chairs for the backyard. No, I'm not making millions of dollars on YouTube now I'm not making the tons of money that we were making in two thousand fifteen so we were able to go on huge first class trips to Disney every years sometimes twice a year. But you know what I got to do that. And. And I'm got these really cool Adirondack chairs that really excited about as a matter of fact, I may take a picture of them and make them thumbnail for this podcast. I'm so grateful for those chairs and for the money to have those chairs see this is where the magic happens with gratitude when you're grateful things start to happen. And that's not why you should be grateful. And a lot of people teach gratitude as a success strategy, not me. I teach credited because you just should be you may or may not become successful, whatever that means to you, you may or may not become rich because you decide to become a grateful person in join me up here as bird being all grateful, and riding the clouds and all that kind of stuff, and that might not happen. Might not, but you'll be enjoying life, and I don't know to me that seems like success enjoying life. Always seems like success to me as a matter of fact, being alive to me seem successful, although I do believe in an afterlife, and that it's a great place. But at the same time, I'm like, not in a big hurry to get there. If you want to have a successful life, happy, life of fulfilling life, you need to get grateful. You need to shut up and be grateful. The first thing I'm gonna ask you to do on this podcast. And we will revisit this topic many, many times. But here's what we asked. You really simple. I want to get a little notebook. Yes. A notebook. Now there is a great gratitude app that I use. But, but pen and paper really is more powerful. I hate to admit that too, because I have trouble writing because of the so I can never read, what I right, but I still right. Because it is a powerful thing that happens with your. When you put pen to paper or pencil to paper in my case anyway, so I want you to start an end each day for thirty days by writing down five things that you're grateful for these do not have to be big things. Okay. I'm very often especially right now in July very often on my gratitude list is air conditioning, and I write it a seat, because I wouldn't be grateful for men immigrate air conditioning. I'm grateful for things like clean water. I'm often grateful for my bed. I really like my bed. I'm grateful for my house grateful for my computer really grateful from iphone, really loved my iphone. I'm grateful for my cats. I'm grateful for you know, if it was a nice day. Sometimes I'm grateful for rain because we needed it. I'm grateful for my dolls. I'm grateful obviously, for my husband for greasy for my family, but it can be really simple stuff, whatever. Just in the moment, you're grateful. For what I'm trying to tell you, as you don't need to write war in peace about what you're grateful for just want you to pause in the morning when you wake up and right before you go to bed and rate, a minimum of five things that you're grateful for they don't have to be things that happened that day..

"melissa" Discussed on Melissa Hunter

"To everybody's mommy this week. I wanna talk to you about priorities and what I like to call. You can't actually have it all. Well, see the thing is, is that you can have it. All you just can't have it all at the same time and priorities, like plural is actually impossible. So I looked up the word priority to understand what a priority really is. And it's a thing a thing that is regarded as more important than another. So I know that when we talk about priorities in business and work in life. We talk about prioriti-. Ising our life. And so we're going to say that, okay, this thing is the most important in this next thing is the next most important. And then we've got this third most important thing in this, like, and then you're like we're on the eighth. Most important thing in the problem. Is that anytime we call something a priority in our minds? We're saying that this thing is like super important, and more important than almost everything else in our life. And as entre preneurs, we have a tendency to have multiple priorities, and that leads very quickly to overwhelm while. It's okay to try to be juggling multiple projects and in life. I mean is a multiple project. I mean, your, your apparent your spouse, your employees or a business owner, your daughter, your sister, your friend. I mean. Those are roles and within those roles obviously, we have some built in priorities. You know, family comes first kids are the most important thing. But when we're talking in terms of business, and managing projects, then we need to really, really get saying here about what we're prioritizing and how we are prioritizing guys, you can't have eight priorities. You just you can't. I've tried it can't be done. I realized that a situation that I had put myself in was that I had three priority projects. Well, okay, originally, I had five priority projects, even though I know better, two of them were events and then the other three were new initiatives that I'm working on. And I was trying to do the two. The most important things. Well, okay. I was trying to do those top three Harry. Let's be honest. I was trying to do. All five of them at the same time, I was treating all five as if they were the priority, because you see, they were my priorities, and that was not working out for me now we're gonna end at all. So I had to take a step back. Take a deep breath. Get out my notebook. I'm with I can still do paper. I like paper. I can't read a thing. I right. But just the activity of writing gives me some sort of a sanity. But if you want to do this type and really sit down and write out each project. Why it was a priority. Why is this one of my priorities, and why does it have this date associated with it in three out of five of those cases, those dates were set by me, because in order for me to not procrastinate it's very important for me to put due dates on projects now two of them were events. So they kind of had their own built in urgency. You know, but the other three were mine, and I had assigned dates and those dates were all sort of clustering together here in July and August. And I was freaking out because every day I was feeling so overwhelmed. And I realized that the more overwhelmed and freaked out, I got the less productive. I was becoming I sat down last night. Did breathing. I got centered Agom focused got my notebook and I asked myself, why? So I'm going to share with you. What my priorities are were working on launching online, courses, I've got rebooting and rebranding my YouTube channel, and I've got building a new branch of family video network. And these all three of them were kind of clustered together, and I was trying to get them all done by July thirty first and because that's the date I said in my head, so I sat down. And when I asked myself, wise this priority for each one of those things I realized that what I originally thought was the number one position priority, which was launching might online courses. And that whole new piece of my business was actually not number one. What was really number one was the rebranding and rebooting of my YouTube channel number two was actually not the launching of my online courses, but. Launching and growing this new branch of family video network. And then in the third spot is my online courses, now, the reason that originally put the online courses at number one was because this is something that I have always always wanted to do. And I have always put off and I said that this was the year. I was going to do it, and come hell or high water this year I was doing it. I was going to put it out there. I was going to start teaching and start doing webinars, and it was going to happen this year and you know what it's still is going to happen this year, but because I put this pressure on myself, and I tied it up with all of this emotion and stuff. I didn't realize that when I stopped to look at the ROI of these things that one really didn't need to be number one, now return on investment for me doesn't necessarily mean how much money am I going to make return on? Investment for me. The payoff for me is, what is it going to give to me, not just financially but in terms of joy and fulfillment because I have found that when I'm joyful and fulfilled I make money a successful. Mommy is a happy, mommy but really a happy. Mommy is a successful, mommy. When I looked at the priorities again. And I asked the why the rebranding and rebooting of my channel is something that gets me so excited, and it's going to be so much fun and have all of these really fun ideas for it, and I haven't been focusing on it because it wasn't the number one priority. But in reality, in terms of payoff of joy, and excitement and fulfillment, and a whole bunch of other personal stuff. It's number one. And here's the thing in terms of finances. It is also number one, because my YouTube channel is my venture capitalist for all of my other projects. And there is a time sensitivity to it because I wanna get this puppy relaunched enrolling in time for it to be super hot and happening for q four for the holiday shopping season because that's when all of the sponsor deals are going to come in for a channel like mine that has to do with dolls and toys. Ding priority number one. So then courses became priority number two, but then I was asking myself. Why on my family video network new branch and the why there is really compelling? It's about helping other people. It's about serving a group of under served people in the YouTube population that it's their time. And this is is the people that I'm working with are so jazzed in so excited and so ready to go, and I just, it's just going to be so exciting. And so fulfilling to see this come together, and there may be zero financial ROI behind this, especially in the beginning. And that's okay because what the ROI what the payoff is going to be for me in terms of fulfillment, and joy, and excitement is huge. So ding priority number two, and then they've got the courses. Yes, this is still a priority for me. And the why is still the same. And yes, there could be a significant ROI financially on this. And it does mean a lot to me, emotionally and spiritually, but it doesn't mean as much. As those first two. And so to make sure that I am focusing on priority number one in making progress on priority. Number one, not only if I set a date for it. Because because that's all well and good. I've also got myself a little notebook I'm into little notebook. So got a little notebook mccarey my purse, and I am going to track and rate down. Everything that I do every day for that priority to make sure that I am doing things every day for that priority, because you see, that is the priority that is more important than anything else. And so I better be spending more time on that every day than any other project. I'm working on. Yes. See how that works that's prioritizing, and you cannot prioritize five things. You just can't. You just can't prioritizing means there's one thing out there that is giving the bulk of your attention. You've got a secondary thing that gets some attention. And then at most. You've got a third thing that you touch a couple of times a week, if you've got more than three things and you don't have like a team that you can assign things to you're gonna go nuts and you're gonna get so overwhelmed. And if you're like me, you're just gonna like freeze and nothing is actually going to get done because especially if you're prioritizing five different things means you're doing little bits of it every day, when you do little bits of little things every day, nothing ever gets done. You need to just get in there digging gator done. And now I invite you to do the prioritizing project sit down right up all of whatever you think your priorities are right now and you can include your family and your relationships and all that stuff. But those fall under a different category, and they always take precedence, but right down your priorities, and right out why they are priority. Why does this need to be? Be the thing that is the most important consider each one as if it's going to be the thing, the priority, and then consider the ROI not just financially, but emotionally and psychologically, and then look at all of them and figure out which one really is the priority, and then which one is your secondary project, and then what's the third one that you can sort of work on couple times a week until you finish priority? Number one, and then it can move up the ladder that is your assignment this week. And then I invite you to enjoy the I cannot tell you how much there was in my life last night. The Cy of relief. The letting go the being able to breathe of having one priority. One thing that I am focused on completely like I'm so zen right now. I'm so relaxed and it's funny because after I did that I immediately just jumped into all of the things that for some reason, I haven't been doing on that, that were so easy to do like getting the stuff out to get my logo done, and sending the color palette to the production company and like all this stuff that I just like why didn't I do the easy stuff but somehow it wasn't getting done. I did it because, you know, once you figure out what your priority is you just go for it. Thank you so much listening. You can find out more about me at Melissa hunter dot com..

"I was about a three hundred dollars short of the twenty thousand dollars and someone paid me in cash for some consulting work that I had done. And I said to Bill, I was like, hey, so it's so paid in cash, how cool is that? And he's like, and with that just hit your twenty thousand dollars. Kinda crazy. So I have written another check for something very specific that needs to happen by October first, and I, I don't know where that money's gonna come from. But that's not my thing. I don't need to figure out where the money's gonna come from God in the universe takes care of where the money comes from how the money happens. You just got to believe that it's going to happen, and you have to believe it every day, and I look at my check every day, and I rate it in my planner every day. And until I manifested all twenty thousand of the twenty thousand dollars. I looked at that check every day. I visualized giving the check to Bill every day. I wrote in my planner every day that I was manifesting twenty thousand extra dollars by may. I it was in my prayers every day, I thank God for helping me to manifest twenty thousand extra dollars by may. I noticed how just rolls off my tongue because I said it constantly and I visualized it constantly it works. It sounds stupid. It sounds woo. But when you. Get past the stupid in the woo. When you get to the place where you realize that there is an actually, there is an infinite amount of money out there and that whatever you need. You can have you just gotta believe it. That's all. It's that simple stupidly. Simple, just ridiculously simple, and I am working through, and you have my stupid stories about money. Even if the stupid story is a little bit sad about a little girl who got money in love and abandonment, all kind of smushed together in her little head. Even if it's that kind of stupid story, even if it's like a tragic back story you can still work through it. And when you work through it, then the money just keeps coming. I just keep getting money from nowhere. And by the way, after the after the seventeen thousand dollars, I just would randomly I it's funny because I told my friend that night I'm just I'm I just keep sitting here, clicking refresh on my Email. I want more money to come in the Email and it did. And I also got a check in the mail from some class action settlement with AT and T for fourteen dollars. I got another check in the mail for some sort of refund for something for seven dollars like I would just get these random checks from nowhere. And just I would just laugh cashed. Every one of them I got a check for like a dollar something. I cashed it. I'd find money on the ground. I'll pick that up. And I was at going towards my twenty thousand dollars because you also have to respect it and know that it's coming from a bunch of different sources. But guys, it works just whatever your stupid story is about money. You try to look into the why why what, what's going on with me and money? And I highly recommend sitting down and writing a letter to money, I highly recommend the book. You are a bad ass that book looks a little silly. And the title might put some people off my gosh, I have read that book, three times now that book is amazing Jensen zero is a mazing. It's absolutely amazing and whatever you're stupid stories. You're limiting beliefs. Your tragic back story about money, your reason why you think that you can't manifest money or that you shouldn't manifest money. Let it go okay in order for you to do good in the. World. You need to be okay? You need to be taken care of to be. Oh, came be taken care of, especially in the western world. You need to have money. In order to employ people, you need to be able to pay them in order to give to charity, you need to have money. You need money. Money is okay. I promise you, you will not become an evil person. If you have a lot of money you are already a good person. So when you have a lot of money you will do good things with a lot of money. I know you will just like I know we will because we do, and we have, and the more money we have the more money we can give the more jobs. We can create for people. The more we can give to the world. So I'm good with it. I'm good with manifesting all the money that I need. So I encourage you to do some manifestation. If you do manifest, let me know I wanna hear about it. Send me an Email at. Manifest at Melissa hunter dot com. That's right. I created Email address just to hear your manifesting stories. So that's manifest at Melissa hunter dot com. And thank you guys so much for listening to the just go for it podcast. That's right. I want you to just go for it when it comes to manifesting money. And whatever it is that you want to do in life. Don't wait any more just go for it. Thank you so much for listening. I'll talk to you again next week. Bye..

"This week on just go for it. I get so excited that I found on the desk so much you can hear it. Welcome to the just go for it podcast with me, your host, Melissa hunter, aka mommy to all the nice people on the internet this week. We're going to talk about manifesting money and what complete and utter nonsense. That is until you manage to manifest seventeen thousand dollars while you run out to get burgers at five guys, I have been a self hell self exploration personal development growth person. Whatever since I was about thirteen years old in our family, counselor gave me a book called notes to myself, and I discovered that people wrote books about how to become a better person or a better me and I just I got hooked. So I'm fifty years old. So what does that like thirty seven years? So it's a long time. And so I've read oh gosh. So many books and listened to so many. Tapes. Yes tapes. They used to be on cassette tapes, and then they were on CDs and now they're on audible and read the books watched videos, I've gone to events, I've gone to Tony Robbins events. I've gone to so many events, I've seen John Maxwell, and I've learned so much, and I've gained so much and, and become someone that I'm proud to be over the years, and the one little sticking point that I've had along the way had to do with money now. I grew up without money. Money was a struggle in our home. My mom was a single mom. My grandmother helped her raise us. Didn't live in. We didn't live in the gutter, but we didn't live in greatest area and it was a bit of a struggle. So I, I grew up believing money was a struggle and a carried that into my adulthood, and even as I studied with all of these people who kept talking about, you know, just changing your mindset about money, and manifesting money, it that one piece never exactly clicked for me. And then, you know, the secret came out, and there was all this manifesting talk, and manifesting became like the buzz word, right? You could manifest anything you could manifest a Maserati, you could manifest your perfect mate. You could manifest anything and honestly over the years, I have manifested just about everything except money. I manifest people like you would not believe when I need people in my life. To help me, grow doubt me do something or to learn something, I just turn around and I am meeting, some new person somewhere at an event door randomly in a store, and just meet people, and I need the perfect people. When I need them, I manifest people. No problem, I manifest success with no problem, I manifest. I manifest did my husband. I actually thanks to twenty Robins. I sat down or night road out exactly what I wanted in a mate, it was like it was like a shopping list. And if he were to go look at that list, and talked to my husband, you would realize that I manifested my perfect meet exactly. It's actually kinda creepy, but the money piece and every time people would start talking about manifesting money are manifesting things like houses, or cars, or anything that had to do specifically with money or financial gain. I would always sort of switch that off in my head. I would I would get this lucrative be feeling. I get this like the vibe right? And you might be there, you might be there with me like I can believe all of this other stuff, but the money and for some people, it's that they feel like asking God for money or manifesting, money is not spiritual. That's for some people. That wasn't really it for me. I didn't think that money wasn't spiritual. I just it just felt itchy because I had a lot of limiting beliefs around money. So is reading the book, you are a bad ass by Jensen, Sarah, and Jen, great big hug, and squeeze you. When I finally meet you in, in the book, Jen has a lot of exercises. And one of the exercises is to write a letter to money. Now it sounds really hokey and stupid. But I in, in this wonderful year of two thousand eighteen I decided that I was going to once and for all. Paul address and work through my issues around money because I realized that I had some deep seated negative issues around money, and that, that was affecting the financial success and stability of my family. So an notice I just made that about my family. I didn't make it about me. I'm working on that. It's like still I'm doing it from a family of not for myself still working through these things guys. But see I notice it when I do it now. So I wrote sat down got my pin got my notebook, and I sat down to write my letter to money and I did not expect it to go where it went guys. And I know what you wondering right now. You're, like, are you going to tell us about how you manifest seventeen thousand dollars while you were getting hamburgers? Yes, I am. This is the story. So I sat down and wrote this letter, and it went to this really. Early unexpected place when I was a little girl I lived with my grandparents, and my mother and my brothers. My grandfather was the light of my life. He was everything to me and pretty much whenever he was sitting in the living room, at least once a day, I'd walk through the living room. And my grandfather would say baby here, I got something for you. And I would climb up on his lap. And by the way, I was the light in his life, because his only son died of a heart attack when he was thirty years old when I was baby and, and having me in their lives to take care of kind of helped my grandfather go on. And so I'm climb up in his lab. And we would do whatever nursery rhymes story is got your nose. You know, the kind of stuff you do with your grandpa, and then he would give me a couple of pennies a nickel dime. Wooh. A quarter. You know, whatever kind of little change he had in his pocket. And he had given me this plastic piggy Bank, and he would tell me go run and put it in the Bank, and I would go run, and I would put the money in my piggy Bank and. You see what happened was, was that for me, money and love became connected, and you're like, well, how could that be a bad thing? Well, when I was ten years old without any explanation without talking to me without anything I went to school. And when it came home. My grandfather was gone. He left my grandmother, he left all of us. He left us. He left me. He just left. And I didn't see him again until five years later when he had died. And it. You know, crushed little Melissa. He was my world. He was my light. He was. He was my grandpa. He was everything to me, and that, that was the first in a series of distabilise ations in my life. But that one was really, really hard hitting. I realized and I had not thought about any of this until I was writing the letter to money as I was writing the letter to money. I think one of the instructions was to think about sort of first memory of money, and I realized that my first memories of money were of my grandfather and sitting on his lap and the love and the piggy Bank. And he left me. And I completely fell apart completely fell apart writing this, this letter, and they went into other things with the letter, but I realized that. Wow. Who did not expect it to go there, right? It's kind of heavy kind of heavy for this podcast. Melissa usually a lot of funnier. You're stupid stories are usually a lot funnier. This one's not so stupid. But it is a stupid story. Guys. This is a limiting belief me believing that somehow money and love are connected, and that money can leave you just like love. Can leave you here's last stuff going on in there that, that I needed to work through. And so, I started to work on my, my relationship with money and I decided that I was going to manifest money I was going to do this. I can do this. So I sat down and I decided that I was going to manifest twenty thousand dollars twenty thousand extra dollars. This is very important. Twenty thousand. Extra dollars for my husband by may, I, I was going to I was going to manifest this money because I wanted him to be able to go. Join this golf club that he he liked and we weren't gonna be able to do that this year. And I thought that something that he really wanted. And so I was going to do that. I sat down. I got out the checkbook. I wrote a check out to my husband twenty thousand dollars. I put a date of may I on it. I clipped it onto my planner and I was going to every day I was going to pick up that check. And I was gonna kiss it and the whole thing I was I was in, man. I was so in. So I did this wrote the letter, I wrote the check, and then I had to run out to five guys to get burgers for my teenager. So I get in the car, I go over to five guys get a burger a job home give the burgers to the teenager. I go look at my Email in I have to. Emails from two different brands one, offering me, ten thousand dollars for video and one, offering me six thousand dollars for video that my friends is sixteen thousand dollars. I was gone for like twenty minutes. So, like within an hour of writing the check for twenty thousand dollars. I got sixteen thousand dollars in my Email that six thousand dollars turned into seven thousand dollars because they wanted it rushed. And here's the important piece of this puzzle. I don't get brand deals. You know, let me change that I didn't use to get brand deal, offers just randomly out of nowhere, by the way, since I've changed my money manifesting mind, set, I have gotten more sponsored video requests in the first seven months here of two thousand eighteen then I got in all of the first six years of doing the mummy and Gracie show, because I changed my money, manifesting mindset, it's absolutely insane. I would I gotta tell you guys when I came home and I got those emails like now I'm all like. To. I'm like one of those people who's onstage go. And that's right. And I had a Lamborghini, by the end of that you guys I had chills, I was freaking out. I was texting miss Robin. I was jumping up and down. And telling my husband, I was telling the teenager who was looking at me like. I tell my mother had to tell everybody I was so freaked out. It was so quick, and specific and God knows that I'm a little dense sometimes in. So when he's going to try and show me something he does ri- call. What can the across the head with a two by four like Bong like okay, do you get it? Now. You can manifest money. Guys, you can really do it. He just got to get really specific about what you want, when you want it, why you want it. And then you have to believe that it can happen. It really all you need to do now. I know that sounds so simple. But, but, but, but, but the thing is for the first time I really believed it. I wrote that check, I visualized myself handing the check to Bill on may first and saying to him. I manifested this for you, because I love you and I want you to be happy and handing him the check and I believed that I could do it. And so I did. You know, I think that's a quote. She believed that she could do it. So she did guys I it. It's really that stupidly. Simple. It really really is. I mean, I cannot believe it. It was that easy now to continue to manifest money and stay on the good side of money. I do need to continue to work at it because it's easy to backslide. It's very easy, and I actually did hit the goal of twenty thousand dollars but I actually hit it the second week in may while I was at an event called clamor..

"Amy porterfield. Oh my gosh. She din yellow port Gabby Bernstein. All these wonderful women. I follow. Tony Robbins been like a Tony Robbins. Acolytes and smacked twenties with other referral for twenty five years. Tony. But they are not the secret to my success. I am the secret sauce. You are your own secret sauce. You are the secret sauce in your life and your business, and you need to realize that I want to share a stupid. Little Melissa story with you, and it's really sweet, and it's really funny, but it does tie into foam. Oh, because I was I was, I had the worst foam. Oh, this might have been my first case of foam out. So I was about three years old somewhere somewhere in there. Very little. And this is actually my first memory of, of being in church and, and we're Catholic, we were raised Catholic twelve years of Catholic school. I was at my oldest brothers. I think it must have been his first, holy confession which I think now is called the sacrament of penance or something or no. I'm sorry. It's now called the Sacramento reconciliation we like to change the names. We like. To change the names, mechanic church like to keep you on your toes. So I must have been about three and I remember his soul, clearly forty-seven years later, because it was my first case foam. Oh, so we're all sitting there it's a packed church and it's very important ceremony. I got that I knew I was dressed up. I knew that I had to be like, super quiet and good. There was at some point that the priests said any, who's probably Bishop, if it was a confirmation, but doesn't matter. He said, you know, the important mandatory to God told me that God was now going to. Descend, an and be among us. And I was so excited because this was the moment. This was the big moment. The big man was coming. I was finally going to see God I was in his house. Right. And the priests said he was gonna come and be with us now. And I was so psyched. I cannot tell you, I still remember. I sat there and I was looking around the church, and we, it's very old school Catholic church that I grew up in and the relax of statues, and so now looking at all the statues, because my dad used to take us to a lot of those Herri Henry housing movies, like the Sindbad movies where the statue would come to life like claim Asian stuff like stop motion. So I'm looking at all the statues, and I'm thinking, maybe one of the statues is going to come to life. That's god. Right. This is what I'm thinking. And then look, I'm looking around. I'm like, okay. That's not happening. Oh, maybe, maybe he's just going to be like a ghost and he's going to come down from the ceiling. So I'm looking at these this very ornate ceiling that we have, and I'm looking for I'm looking all over the church now and they're still, there's just droning and they're singing people are doing stuff and kneeling and I'm looking around and I'm waiting and he's not coming. And I remember I was looking at my mom like the she him is like can everybody else? See him. And I can't am I am. I too little to see him. So I never actually asked. But for very long time after that, I was too embarrassed to admit that I didn't see him by the way, anyone tell anybody that, you know, when God came and y'all saw him. I didn't I don't know. I, I was just it was. It was about. But I you know what? I really felt like I was so mad after that because I felt like I got gypped, that's right. I got gypped everybody else saw God. I didn't I missed out foam. Oh my first foam. Oh and, and I was really annoyed for a really. And I still get foam. Oh, I mean, I still do it's like every event that I up for I go to an event. And I know that there's a piece of me, there's a part of me inside. That is saying this, this is going to be the event that, that, that, that mega shift that huge shift inside me happens in, I finally break through all of my blocks and emerge triumphant like the butterfly out of the chrysalis, but that's not really how it works. It really doesn't as I said, it's just a series. It's just a series of moments in our lives. Like I missed out on B school. Right. Marie four Leo. Does discreet be school thing? I didn't know about Marie folio or be school until right after be school registration closed this year. I was so upset only go. No, but you know what? I don't have to wait until next year to launch a successful podcast or coaching business because I missed be school. I don't have to wait for be school. Am I going to go to school next year, certainly hope? So I think I would like to, but I don't need to wait until I go to be school to succeed. That's a stupid story. Okay. I don't need to have the most perfect Email funnel. Right. I don't have to have the biggest Email list to be a success. I don't need any of those things. Everything I need is inside me. Everything you need is in side of you. We are all that we need to be successful to be happy. And by the way, if you do want to see God, I know where he is. Now, I figured it out, you know, fifty years been around for well, I figured out how to see God I look in the mirror, f why the secret sauce to everything is in side of you. You are the magic pill knowing that you are God, knowing that you have everything you need right? At your fingertips anytime you need it. That's the magic. That's the magic and anything else is a stupid story. So I'm not saying you need to stop reading, and stop going to events, stop listening to podcast. Oh, no. Please keep listening to podcasts. Make sure you are following the just go for it podcast. But don't tell yourself that if you miss an episode of a podcast that everybody's talking about everybody's talking about this podcast. And I missed it. Everybody was talking about this event that I didn't go to now. I can't be successful. Please don't do that to yourself. Use your tools but don't get obsessed with your tools. Don't do what I did. I spent a year year at least year trying to decide which platform and funnel system at cetera. To launch my online coaching business year league really seriously, just like whip up a WordPress site. And like just tell your friends, Melissa lake, you know, a lot of people what the heck, and I'm still sort of procrastinating on it. Honestly, I'm still this message is for me as much as for you. You know, this is a stupid story them telling myself that my website has to look just so before I launch it, and, and, and that my courses have to have this certain look before I put them out there, but over it because, you know what my real foam is real foam. Oh, is lying on your deathbed and not having done everything that you could have done and everything that you wanted to do. That's the real foam. Oh. Real foam. Oh hits on your deathbed until then there is no foam. Oh, there is no phone ABI K. There is just you. And just going for it just know that you have everything you need, and the most amazing things happen, when you step out in faith when you just go for it when you start moving forward, when you give yourself forward momentum and, and just go for it. Everything starts to fall in place. And then not just say that because is the title of this podcast I'm saying because it's true. So say no to foam, oh, become a recovering foam hallock with me. Let go of phone to be you can do it. We can all do it together. You are enough. I am enough. We are enough. We just gotta go for it. I thank you so much listening. If you enjoy this podcast, please tell your friends. Please tell them about the crazy woman who thought she was going. See God when she was three years old. And until we meet again, remember, whatever you wanna do whatever idea, you have don't we just go for it. But..

"Episode number two with your host, Melissa hunter. That's me to the people and the internet. I am known as mommy, but you can go ahead and call me Melissa or mommy, whatever works for you today. We need to talk about a really, really important thing. It's foam. Oh, do you have foam? Oh, do you know what foam is foam? Oh is fear of missing out now? This is a term that sort of joined the lexicon of our modern world because people watching other people do things on social media were getting foam. Oh, they were seeing people at parties in having what appeared to be beautiful. Wonderful lives in there. They felt like they were missing out so this term foam. Oh coined. And I kind of like the term foam. Oh, but we're not going to talk so much about. Seeing people on gorgeous vacations or at parties that we weren't invited to and dealing with foam. Oh, we're gonna talk about foam, oh, and the work Hollick. Now, I am a recovering alcoholic, and I'm an entrepreneur, and we will at some point talk about how the heck do you manage to do those two things? But today we're talking about foam. Oh, so I want to just throw out a couple of blog headlines that I've seen lately, and I want you to think, when you read these, how do you feel? So we've got five productivity hacks. To guarantee success, the three things all billionaires do in the morning. The one change that will ten x your business. Entrepreneurs online, these headlines will sound really, really familiar. There's things like if you only read one book this year for your business blank, how I grew my Instagram following by one hundred thousand people in three weeks, and you feel like you gotta jump on. You got to read it. You've got to use this tool. You've got a follow this system, because if you don't you might be missing out foam. Oh fear of missing out now. You need understand that all these titles are designed to prey on your foam. Oh, and I know this because I write these headlines, I know how to pray on foam. Oh, I also am a recovering foam. Oh, hollick. That's right. I've just going to new term foam, a holic. So there's workaholic which I am. Covering from workaho ISM, but I also realize I am a foam Hollick, and, and it's really it's really not a fake thing because what happens is you become so obsessed with this fear that you are missing out on the one key thing, or the three key things or you're not doing the three things that could change your.

"So I have a confession to make my hair is not spiritual enough. See if you haven't seen a picture of me, I have this really short pixie cut like really, really short. And it's not one of those pixie cuts where like you gotta leg blow dry and flat, iron and use product and all kinds of stuff like that. Ain't nobody got time for that. I've super straight hair, I super shirt, pixie cut. I basically wash my hair I do condition. I do condition. I'm proud of myself. I actually put conditioner in my hair, and then I let it dry. And if I have to do something, I spread some stuff on it that I got at the salon that makes it look like it has some texture and I'm good to go. So what does that have to do with being spiritual or not being spiritual? Well, I was at Gabby Bernstein, spirit junkie. Masterclass. It's a three day event, and I was looking around and I was noticing, everybody's hair, and everybody had this really nice long hair. There were a few ladies like myself, who were rocking pixie. But for the most part, people had pretty nice long hair, and in general, I notice most of the female entrepreneurs that I follow had this really long luxuriant hair, like Marie folios hair. I just the whole time. I'm watching TV. I'm just looking at her hair. It's so luxuriance and like Gabby Bernstein, long blond hair Danielle LaPorte woman's got here for days. So I was sitting there and I was thinking to myself, and I think this was kind of like on Saturday morning, I was thinking to myself. I'm not spiritual enough and nobody's going to take me seriously as a spiritual entrepreneur, because I don't have long luxury, his hair, and maybe I should think about growing out my hair. Let's stop for a minute. And think about how ridiculous it like when I say it, it sounds so ridiculous. And so I turned to my friend Jennifer who met at the spirit junkie masterclass, and we room together, shat out, girl. And I told her, and I told the other ladies around us what I was thinking, and we'll had a good laugh about my lack of spiritual hair. And so the joke for the rest of the weekend was Melissa. Your hair isn't spiritual enough. You can't be spiritual. You don't have spiritual hair. So guys, I don't have spiritual hair. So it sounds ridiculous. Right. But here's the deal. That's a stupid story or what other people would call a limiting belief. I'm I'm more real. I call them stupid stories that we tell ourselves can we tell ourselves a lot of stupid stories in life. And that's one of my stupid stories was that nobody's gonna take me seriously as a spiritual entrepreneur, because I have a pixie cut because I've short hair because I don't have long luxurious speech. Ritual hair. There's all kinds of stupid stories you might be telling yourself stupid stories like I can't start my business because I don't have enough money yet or can't start podcast because I don't have a good name for it. Are stupid stories are things that actually keep us from achieving peace in prosperity, and they're just our egos way of holding us back. And they're also based on our fears, the real thing behind my stupid story is that it was yet another way to keep me from trying to live my dream because I'm afraid that if I try if I just go for it, I'm gonna fail. You might be tying yourself things like, oh, I can't, I can't start this business. I don't know enough yet. I'm not connected with the right people. I don't know the right people yet our need to lose the weight. I before I do whatever it is. I. I need my energy, get some investors. I need more money. I can't just I don't have enough money to start this business. I just I don't I need to wait. There's too much competition. It's too late. I'm too old. I'm too young have kids, I'm too busy. I don't have a good enough idea. You can tell yourself stupid stories for ever about why you can't do whatever it is that you really want to do. But you're telling yourself these stupid stories because you're afraid to fail. I'm telling myself stupid stories about why I can't start a podcast because I'm afraid to fail. I bought like a fancy podcast do Hickey. And, and I haven't set it up yet. So I can't record my podcast. Of course. I could just set up this microphone thing that I haven't put a pillow behind achieve the same result. Right. But no, that's not professional enough. Guess what? I need to embrace the hashtag, so profession it got me through mommy, greasy show on YouTube, everybody. Loved. Us because we were not professional enough. Well, we were not as professional as other people on YouTube, they embraced our imperfection. They loved our imperfection because it was relatable. Guess what your imperfections are relatable? My lack of spiritual hair is relatable. I told myself stories stupid stories about why I cannot be motivational speaker and a life coach for twenty five years. I'm not gonna go into all of the stupid stories trust me. They were more stupid than I don't have spiritual enough hair. But I'm not doing it anymore. I'm here I'm here with a pillow a kiss mouse pad underneath a microphone, some notebook, paper, scribbled bunch of stuff on it. Can't read, and I'm recording podcast. That's right. I haven't been starting this podcast. I have a lot of ideas for the. Podcast. I have a whole trello board full of podcast ideas and notes. And I've had this board going for months. I've learned everything there is to know about podcasting. I listened to podcast why haven't I started a podcast because I can't think of a cool name for my podcast. I mean, Jenner cookers got gold, diggers and referrals, got Marie TV, and I can't think of anything, and all the good names are taken, and there's nothing that goes with my name, my name doesn't rhyme with anything. So I'm lying there after doing some yoga this morning. And I'm lying Shiva's where I'm supposed to be quiet mine, quiet body. But of course, my head is spinning about need to come up with a name for my podcast. And while I'm lying there. God, said, well, okay, God's voice sounds suspiciously. Like my voice in my own head, by the way. But God said just go for it, and then I thought that's the name of my podcast. Yes. It's a stupid name, but you know what? I'm just going to go for it. Because if I we until I come up with the perfect name, I'm gonna be ninety nine years old, and starting a podcast, so here I am just going for it. And here you are listening to me soc-, it worked whatever stupid stories you're telling yourself about why you can't do whatever it is that you want to do just know that they're just stupid stories and their stories. You're telling yourself, it's not anything that anybody else's really thinking or believing. It's all in your head. It's all you, creating your own blocks. Your own speed bumps and detours to keep you from finding peace and prosperity. Because you're afraid you're afraid that if you put yourself out there gin you'll fail. Guess what you might fail. I have failed so many times, I have failed. Spectacularly in fifty years of life. Trust me, I have failed. I have gone down in a flaming blaze of glory. But I have also succeeded massively I have a chief things I never would have dreamed of and every time that I did that every time that I exceeded my expectations succeeded on a massive scale blew my own mind. It was because I just went for it. And I just I swear to God, I got offered a promotion they were like we want you to go and take over Manhattan operations in fix Manhattan Manhattan's in trouble, Melissa near the person to fix it. And I said, I'm going for it. I'm gonna get on a train yet, I'm gonna go to Manhattan every day. Guess what didn't even know what trained to get on had no idea how to use? The subway wasn't even exactly sure how to a cab didn't know where the. Treats were, but I figured it's a grid. How hard could it be cannot tell you how many times I went to the wrong location? But I never lit onto the people who work for me that I didn't know, everything there was to know about Manhattan, and I learned learned as I went along. And you know what I succeeded massively massively I took Manhattan which was a region. That was in the red. That was hemorrhaging money. And in twelve months, I turned that puppy around into a hugely profitable region because I just went for it, whatever you're stupid stories are that you're telling yourself, just know that they're stupid stories you may not be able to stop them. Trust me. I still think about the spiritual hair, but now I laugh now I laugh, when I look at Marie folio, and I'm like, gosh. She's got such beautiful hair, I think to myself, and I've got hair. It doesn't matter that my hair isn't long and luxurious, nobody's going to care because it's what's inside me that matters. I could be bald, bald in spiritual vote is monks are even the Buddhist nuns are bald, right. Who would tell you that a Buddhist nun is not spiritual enough? Right. Whatever your stupid story is that you're telling yourself or stupid stories that you're telling yourself, just kind of let them float on by, but don't listen to them, and don't let them hold you back from doing. You just gotta do it. Just go for it, whatever it is decide right now. Right. This minute. That if this crazy woman sitting with a pillow behind a microphone with her unspiritual pixie cut can put herself out there with a podcast with a stupid name. I can do whatever it is..
