Have you ever been at a point in your life where you thought you should have accomplished more than you have? My guest in this episode, First Lady, author and life coach Cledra Gross calls it S.H.A.M.E. – “Should Have Already Mastered Everything” syndrome.

If you're trying to move forward and it seems like you get stuck, or if you have a situation or decision that's weighing on you, you're in the right place. In this episode, Daree and Cledra discuss how to drop the weight--literally and figuratively--and let go of everything that's been holding you back.

In This Episode…

  • How to get unstuck when it seems that life is holding you back
  • How to drop the weights of depression, ego and low self-esteem
  • How to create your Plan BE when your dreams seem to have no hope of coming true
  • A different way to look at the act of letting go

Children love to pretend. But when you become an adult, you're not supposed to continue playing pretend, right? So why are so many grown ups still pretending? Either they are busy deceiving others or self-deceived.  

 

In this episode, I talked with the author of The Invitation to Love, Darren Pierre, Ph.D about:

  • Why people grow up and keep living a life of pretense
  • How you can help someone that you suspect is living a lie
  • Learning to live with authenticity
  • Having empathy for people who haven’t “grown up”

Just because you can get it on and pull it up, doesn't mean you should wear it outside. There's just some things you can't "unsee."  And the poor taste in fashion--being a little more trashy than classy--trickles to our kids. Some kids are growing up with female influences that are not the best examples about how to present yourself.  Or they’re taking their cues on appearance and beauty from celebrities on ratchet reality TV shows. My guest, life stylist and designer Kionica Tolbert  of @UniquelyHooked in Dallas, TX breaks it all down.

In this episode, Kionica and I discuss:

  • How to select appropriate fashions by age (13 and up)
  • Setting the rules for how to dress in public
  • Guidelines for dressing modestly (to offend the fewest number of folks)

When our spouse, partner or significant other hurts us, we sometimes feel justified to respond with anger, guilt, or sarcasm. It may make us feel better for a moment, but it rarely produces the results we are hoping for. There is a quote from a book called Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs, and he says: You can be right, but wrong at the top of your voice. In essence, what this means is that we can be "right" in our assessment of the situation and still be "wrong" in how we respond.  We should treat each other with respect, even in the midst of conflict. And being kind and respectful is more likely to lead to reconciliation, because being kind, respectful, tolerant, and patient even in the face of hurt feelings allows your partner to focus on his or her mistakes, rather than your response. 

 

In this episode, LB and I discuss:
  • How to diffuse heated arguments
  • Proper communication that won’t alienate your significant other during a conflict
  • How to T.H.I.N.K. before you speak and avoid “trigger” words
  • Avoiding the “Win or Lose” mentality and mind-shifting your perspective on the issues

It can be scary to try to step out and do something new, especially when it comes to your career and your relationships.  But instead of asking yourself,  “What if I fail” or “What if I can't do it?”, but rather, “What happens if I DON'T?”  So many people wonder what will happen if they step out on something and fail, but what about if they never try?

No one can stop you from following your dreams and pursuing your purpose—no one but you. Life coach Kizmat Tention (aka "Kizzymat") shares her inspiring story and explains how she designed the STEP UP program to help her clients step up, take control of their lives and start living life on purpose.
