Ep 35: Okay to Want What You Want

Ep 35: Okay to Want What You Want

September 15, 2020

Why can’t you design and live the life you truly want?  Why do you bury your desire, believing you can’t “go for it”? 

In this podcast, I ask you probing questions to help you acknowledge and then tape over the negative, debilitating thoughts and feelings that play in the background of your mind to keep your desires at bay.  You’ll learn techniques to reprogram yourself with new messages that reminds you that you can go for whatever the heck you want to!

Ep 34: Now’s the Time

Ep 34: Now’s the Time

September 2, 2020

Our beliefs are the root of our reality.  This is hard to believe some days because there is so much outside of ourselves which seems to have the final say in whether we are living the life we want. 

But we can't let the weirdness that is all around us (and yes, it's mighty weird . . . even excruciatingly hard right now) run the show.  We still can be in the driver's seat.  No, we don't GET to be in the driver’s seat, we MUST take that position. 

In this podcast, Cheri helps you get a handle on the amount of control you can and should have in creating the life you want.  Stop acquiescing to circumstances outside of yourself because they will ALWAYS be there.  Rather, step up RIGHT NOW so you can round out this crazy year on your terms!!!

Ep 33: Transformation Ain’t Sexy

Ep 33: Transformation Ain’t Sexy

August 21, 2020

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all we had to do to change was to wish it into being?  But that’s not how it works.  Real change happens on the micro-level, as we make tiny shifts in our thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Because transformation happens so slowly, those of us who desire a change must navigate the tension between setting our sites on our goals and enduring the inevitable wait that must happen as we live our life on purpose. 

How do we stay focused and fired up when transformation takes so long?  Cheri offers four concrete strategies for staying the course.

Ep 31: Living on Purpose!

What does it take to live your life on purpose, rather than live your life by default?  In this podcast, Cheri begins to answer this important question and gives you powerful strategies for creating and living the life you most want to live. 

She shares three key characteristics of a person who lives on purpose; 1) they intentionally choose their thoughts, feelings and actions 2) they take 100% responsibility or everything in their life and 3) they know they always have a choice. 

Living the life you’ve always intended requires you pull out a map, consciously decide your desired destination, then firmly take the wheel! 

Ep 30: Wake Up to What’s Right in Front of You

Ep 30: Wake Up to What’s Right in Front of You

July 19, 2020

What if what you need right now is right in front of you and you can’t see it?  What if you leaned into and re-engaged with something in your life in a new way and found the mo-jo and moxie you’re craving. What if, like Dorothy, you’re wearing your magical slippers right now and all you have to do is notice them and start walking, baby?

In this podcast, Cheri shares how fixing a broken bookshelf brought her face to face with exactly what she was looking for.  By finally doing something that needed to be done, she unearthed the energy and genius she was craving.  This podcast will ignite you to do the same thing!

 

Ep 29: Change is Uncomfortable

Ep 29: Change is Uncomfortable

June 18, 2020

To call this an intense time would be an understatement!  We are in the midst of a pandemic that has taken over 100,000 lives to date.  Add to that, people are vehemently calling out systemic racism and calling for equality. We are watching police violence, protest of that violence.  Emotional and intense times for sure! 

In this challenging time, we have the opportunity for immense change. . . much needed change.  So how do we allow that change to happen?

In this podcast, Cheri doesn’t speak to the specific issues, rather she speaks to a key ingredient for fostering and allowing any kind of permanent change.  This key step is to sit in the murkiness and the discomfort.  To be willing and able to be uncomfortable.  To resist the urge to reach for easy answers but rather remain in the difficult and awkward place between identifying the problem and finding lasting solutions. 

Ep 28: Detaching on Purpose

Ep 28: Detaching on Purpose

April 30, 2020

In this podcast Cheri ask the question, “How do you live ON Purpose when so much of what is happening to you is out of your control?”  That’s a biggie, right?  But she doesn’t’ stop there, she tops that question with an even bigger one.  “How do you not?!”

We only have control of ourselves.  That's it!  We can’t control much of daily politics, pandemics, war, the climate crisis, etc.  We can only control our responses to these things.  We can only control ourselves.   When we forget our mood, our potential, our health, our self-esteem and our happiness is at jeopardy.   

Listen as Cheri talks about healthy detachment and equanimity; two strategies for staying calm when things are unhinged.  She discusses how to intentionally be untethered to things outside of your control and instead staying unruffled in these crazy times. 

Ep 27: Press the Reset Button

Ep 27: Press the Reset Button

April 18, 2020

What will be your new normal after we make it through this corona virus pandemic?  Will you return to the same life you were living prior to the outbreak?  Will you go right back to what you were doing before?  Or will you use this time, the huge expansive pause that most of us are in, to reevaluate your life and make deliberate choices about what your future will hold?

In some ways, this crisis gives us as individuals, as a country, and as world the opportunity to press the reset button.  In this podcast, I’m inviting you to use this time to evaluate what you like about your life and equally as important, what you want to change as we go forward into our new normal.  I’m inviting you to willingly press the reset button so you can live the life you’ve always intended.

 

Ep 26: Navigating a Crisis

Ep 26: Navigating a Crisis

April 6, 2020

What do we do when we're thrown a curve ball?  How to we stay in control when things blow up in our face? How do we stay in the driver's seat when a crisis grabs the wheel and takes us way off course?

That's definitely what many of us are asking as the coronavirus sweeps around the globe, were are all sheltering in place and we're not sure when or if things will ever get back to normal.

So, what DO we do?  That's the topic of this podcast, not the Covid-19 specifically, but rather about how to navigate a crisis.

I share with you what I believe to be the key for staying in control when things are out of your control.
