Episode Highlights:

[08:47] Finding Grace in Grief

People are struggling with grief because they either aren’t processing it well or there’s been a lot of fear around the idea of loss.  There isn’t a one size fits all way to go through grief. But a good way to start is to honor where you are and learn to detach from it with amusement. 

[18:52] What is Miracle-Mindedness?

Miracle-mindedness is being fully present. When we’re not fully present, we’re thinking about something that we can’t control, which is the past, or we’re thinking about something that we can control, which is the future. Instead, just be in the moment and take responsibility for how you feel in that moment. Miracle-mindedness is that state of surrendering what you can’t control. It is allowing that state of grace to be guided by intuition.

[30:53] The Alchemy of Joy

Joy is our natural state. As humans, we tend to assign or label every experience we have as good or bad. But if you can just become an alchemist of joy, then you can transmute grief or pain into something that may not necessarily be joyful, but at least less oppressive. Then use your skills as an alchemist to make decisions and think about things differently.

[39:18] Building Your Personal Brand

You have a personal brand. If you haven’t created a personal brand, then it’s been created unintentionally. However, you can choose to refine by finding clarity around who you are, what you do, how you do it, and who you do it for.
