We all have our own issues that we bring to the table. In many instances, our issues clash. Each of us is playing out our issues never thinking of what affect it has on those around us. We are too absorbed own personal mythology.
In the podcast about Control, we looked the human tendency to want to hold sway over our fellow man. We talked about how we try to get those around us, especially those who we are closest to, who are different in some way, to be the people we want them to be – to believe, think and act in a manner that we deem correct.
But most people don’t like to be controlled. When it becomes obvious that this is what we are up to, they tend to put up a fight – or they play along, but do what they want to do anyway. So we have to change tactics. We find subtler ways of exerting our power over them.
In this podcast, we’re diving a little deeper into the subject of control. We’re looking at the tool many of us use to try influence others into being who we want them to be. We’re talking about manipulation, and how it may work in the short term, but in the long term, it’s usually disastrous.

There are many reasons we find ourselves wishing that things were different than what they are. One is that we tend to judge most things, especially in terms of good and bad. We want to experience only what we deem good and keep the bad at bay.
We compare and despair, mistaking what we see on the outside as truth, not realizing that things aren’t often as they seem. We might begin to think that something is wrong with us. We take on a woe is me attitude and soon find ourselves down in the dumps. If asked what’s wrong, we’re likely to say we are just unhappy.
What we are ultimately talking about here are expectations. We are talking about our need for things, people, situations and life itself to show up in the manner that we desire, so that we can then be happy. And because things, people, situations and life itself often don’t show up exactly as we expect them to, we often find ourselves in a state of unhappiness.
In this podcast, we’re talking about how our need for certain outcomes, our expectations, keeps us from experiencing the sense of well being and happiness we so desire. We’re being reminded that we must stop waiting for everything to show up like we think it should and learn to take things as they come. We’re discovering that an expectation, is a premeditated resentment.

Many of us try to mold other people into being who we want them to be, or expecting them to think and act as we see fit. In other words, we resort to control.
Many of us will dispute the fact that we are exhibiting controlling tendencies. We will argue that we just have another’s best interest at heart. We just want them to be happy. But in reality, we want them to conform to our world view to make ourselves happy.
In this podcast, we come to recognize control as the illusion that it is. We learn that it is best to live our lives and let others do the same.
Doing so, will likely require us to deal with some of our own fears and anxieties, but if we want to live truly happy and healthy lives, we’re going to have to do that anyway. And in the end, it allows us to form relationships based in mutual acceptance instead of everyone having to mold themselves to fit someone else’s desires.

Join Personal Development Coach, Tim Billiter for the very first weekly DIY for Your Soul Podcast. In this introductory podcast, you will learn more about Tim Billiter and what the DIY for Your Soul concept is all about.
Each podcast is approximately 15 minutes long and future episodes will cover a variety of self-help, self-improvement and personal growth topics.
The subject of each weekly DIY for Your Soul Podcast draws from a variety of topics and concepts that aim to assist you in constructing a true sense of well being for yourself. They are meant to be thought provoking, to challenge you in breaking free from old ideas and habits that inhibit your personal growth, and to provide you with tips and tools to foster new beliefs and behaviors that will keep you on a track of constant progression.
DIY for Your Soul is the name of Personal Development Coach, Tim Billiter’s coaching practice that is based on the idea that each of us, at our very core (our soul), is ultimately responsible for creating the life of our dreams and becoming the people we’ve always imagined ourselves being.
DIY simply refers to building, modifying, or repairing something though self-reliance; taking on the tasks oneself vs. having others complete them for us. And since most of us, at least at some point and time, find ourselves building, re-building, modifying or repairing portions of our lives, in essence, each of our lives is the ultimate DIY project.
And as for the Soul, it is not about any specific religious beliefs, spiritual practices or dogma It is referencing the life force that runs through you. It is about energy - the energy that we call life.

In the podcast entitled, embracing diversity, we delved into the idea that it is our differences that ultimately make life more interesting and make us stronger in the long run.
But when people behave in ways that don’t fit our desires, or our cultural or societal norms, we shun them. We tend to want everyone to be the same, to fall into an accepted mold. But in doing so, we fail to realize that this would thwart our individual and collective growth. And the ironically is, for all of our differences, we are probably more alike than we realize.
In this podcast, we’re taking the idea of embracing diversity one step further. We’re learning that for as different as we all are, and as much as those differences make life interesting, when it all comes down to it, we’re far more alike than not.
And by accepting that we are more alike than not, we become better able to create lasting relationships, and a sense of belonging. We create an atmosphere where true community can exist, which fosters the kind of growth that leads us towards the life of our dreams

The question, “Who am I?” is as old as mankind itself. From the time we are born, we begin the process of defining who we are.
And as most of us have already discovered, the way we define ourselves is very much dependant on how others have defined us. Thus we move through life thinking this or that about ourselves because that’s who we were told we were. But living the life we desire—the life of our dreams—requires us to commence defining ourselves. I requires that we begin to discover our own answers to that age old question of “Who am I?”
In this podcast we learn just how important answering this question is. We discover the power of “I am” when we recognize that whatever we think or say that follows these two words almost always dictates the choices we make.
Thus when you stick to the same old I am’s that you’ve always fallen back on, then the life you desire, and the becoming the person you want to be, is not very likely. Because like it or not, who you think you are, at your very core, is who you become.

We all have moments in our lives that we wish never happened. We’ve all been through situations that we would never want to go back and do again. And due to these difficult experiences, most of us likely have scars, physical and emotional, that we wish we didn’t have. Often times we hold on to the hurt that caused the scars; particularly when caused by other people.
In this podcast, we’re looking at how the negative events we experienced in our lives, and the negative messages we took in from other, as a way to define ourselves, left scars that we not only need to accept, but that we also need to learn to embrace.
And in the process of doing so, we’re likely to see what life lessons they hold for us. We can begin to ask ourselves, Who might you not have been today if it weren’t for the rough patches? And when we put them into their proper perspective, and see where they brought us, we might even actually begin to be grateful for them. We might even learn to love them.

Humans tend to fear things that are dissimilar, especially when we’ve never been exposed to these things. It is likely just part of human nature to gravitate towards those things in our comfort zones.
This tendency to stick with what we know, doesn’t serve us though. It keeps us trapped in a very small worldview. It limits our choices and options. It breeds disharmony.
In reality, we would all likely be much better off if we faced our fears of those things that are different from us. We’d find life so much easier to navigate if we just learned that diversity isn’t something to avoid, it’s something to embrace.
In this podcast we discover that diversity in people, different skin colors, different cultures, different religions, different opinions, is what makes life interesting. If we were all exactly the same, life would be monotonous. By embracing our differences, instead of trying to make everyone conform to our ways of thinking and acting, we are better able to create much more interesting lives for ourselves.

The concept of being powerless is one that gives great pause to many. Countless people face myriad problems and think that the only way to deal with them is to power through – mind over matter.
But the reality is that there are many things over which we have absolutely no power. We just resist admitting it because we ultimately equate it to helpless. But this couldn’t be further from the truth.
In this podcast, we discover that the concept of being powerless merely suggests that we stop fighting; that we admit that there are certain aspects of ourselves and of life, that we can’t simply overpower. It suggests that the very act of constant struggling against those parts of ourselves that make us uncomfortable, actually strengthens those aspects. By resisting all the things that we deem negative, we actually give them more power.
Accepting this frees us to discover the choices we do have in any given situation. Acknowledging that we are powerless over people, places and things, allows us to discover the true power that we genuinely have. And ultimately we are beings with an immense amount of power.
Thus we learn that That power is the power over how things affect us. It is not the power to change the circumstances of the situation; it is the power to change how it influences our lives. In this we are empowered. By focusing on the power that we have, we can ease the pain and anxiety that many of us face in life.
