When you do something wrong, make a mistake, or say something that you know you shouldn’t have, do you immediately admit you were wrong, or do you practice avoidance, or even make excuses and rationalize your behavior? A lot of us, whether we admit it or not, fall into the latter category.
Many times, we knowingly do something wrong, or act in a manner that does not show us in our best light, and either because of embarrassment, or that we are simply head strong, we begin to rationalize our behaviors. We convince ourselves that it was the situation, or the actions of another, that caused us to behave in the way that we did. And if that hadn’t happened, we wouldn’t have said, or did, what we said or did. We give ourselves a free pass. We’re not wrong. We were provoked. Thus we were justified in our actions or our words.
In this podcast we will look at how our inability to admit when we are wrong is more of a sign of weakness than strength. We will learn that taking personal responsibility not only lifts a huge emotional weight off of our shoulders, it also tends to improve our relationships.

Do you tend to focus on the negative aspects of life? Are you more of a pessimist, or what some call a realist, more than an optimist? Many of us live our lives in various levels of fear and those fears color how we see the world. And negativity is one of the ways our minds attempt to protect us from those things we are afraid of. Negativity steers us away from taking chances and from uncertainties. But all of this comes at a price. And the cost is our failure to live the lives we truly desire, and being the person who we've always imagined ourselves being.
In this podcast we will be looking at how negativity has an overall negative affect on our lives and how we go about recognizing it in ourselves and then beginning to challenge it.

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.
What can you do if your car a gas guzzler? As the price of petroleum continues to rise, many people are converting their cars and motorcycles to electric powered vehicles. Clean transportation enthusiast, Ben Nelson has developed a “Do It Yourself” series to teach people with minimal skills how to build their own electric car. Ben’s educational videos make converting your old gas guzzler easy regardless of whether you are a mechanic or your only experience has been with matchbox cars! Ben covers everything you need to know from battery selection, the motor, controller, adapter plate and other minor parts!
Ben is a natural born guru! While he had no formal training in electric vehicle design before beginning his first project, he quickly learned how to build “EV’s” (electronic vehicles) through a combination of hands-on work, informal apprenticeships, and enough library books to literally wear out his library card. He has presented his electric vehicles at many venues, including the Mother Earth Fairs and being the best attended presentation at the Midwest Renewable Energy Fair. He has also been a collaborator on the Open Revolt project, which makes low-cost electric vehicle motor controllers available to everyone.
In addition to his passion for clean transportation, Ben has also designed and built projects for renewable energy, water conservation, and alternative heating and cooking methods. He teaches these ideas and techniques to others through blogs, web videos, and instructional DVDs.
In this segment of The Clean Energy View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Ben Nelson about how to Build Your Own Electric Car and Motorcycle. Stay tuned!

Does the idea of doing new things scare you, almost to point that you are paralyzed? Do you have ideas floating around in your head, and you’re sure they are really great, but you never do anything about them because you don’t know where to start? Do you know what you need to do next, but you’re stuck because you fear you’ll make a mistake, or you’ll fail?
If any of this describes you, don’t fret, you’re just one of many people in the same boat.
In this podcast, we will be talking about overcoming our fears of failure and not knowing, that often keeps us feeling like we’re in a rut. You’ll also hear from Teresa, who spent the better of 25 years in the investment banking industry, and then at 45, decided she wanted a new direction, to change course, and is now a student.
You’ll hear her tell you how she is able to do this, how she overcomes her fears and doubts, by simply taking actions, and letting go of the results.

Are you someone who has trouble being happy if things don’t go your way?
In this podcast, we will address how human beings often have a hard time distinguishing desires from needs. We’ll discuss how we often move through life believing that we cannot be happy unless all of our desires are fulfilled.
We’ll talk about how this holds us back, and why getting everything you desire, isn’t always the best thing in the end anyway.

So, we've been hearing some mainstream news sources talk about what's going to be hot as 2015 trends, and we're skeptical.

I would like to put to rest the myth of free public transportation. This is a favorite project of the progressive era, but it makes no economic, or even socially conscious, sense and I'll prove it. Hope to hear your worldview now toll-freed 888-773-4496.
