In our quest to create the life of our dreams, and to be the people we’ve always imagined ourselves being, we must become willing to truly take a look at ourselves, take a personal inventory, so that we can get a better sense of our strengths and weaknesses.
Now this, admittedly, can seem downright overwhelming. In many ways, it can seem like we are on a mining expedition seeking out negativity. And if all we’re going to do is pick ourselves a part, then what’s going to be left? We might end up feeling like Swiss cheese - full of holes.
But we have to realize that coming to terms with our defects of character is only looking at part of the picture. If we concentrate only on our flaws and our weaknesses, then we are leaving out our strengths.
In this podcast we learn that an inventory is simply an accurate account of what you have and what you don’t. And what you have is just as an important part of the equation as what is lacking.
And we will ultimately find that a strong foundation, on which to build the life of your dreams, cannot be constructed from failures. They have to be built on our strengths. Our failures can serve to redirect us, but in the end, it will be the positive aspects of ourselves, our victories that will motivate us to keep moving forward, and out of the ruts of the past.

Many of us discount the idea that past events in our lives still affect us to this day. We have convinced ourselves that the past is in the past, we grew up, and now we’re over it. We tell ourselves that all that stuff, from all those years ago, no longer affects us.
There are those who fully admit that past events affect the present, but those who deny it, often end up blindly repeating the same patterns again and again, and find themselves totally confused as to why life is not going as they want it to.
In this podcast, you will hear a portion of Dr. Nadine Burke Harris’ Ted Talk on How Childhood Trauma Affects Health Across a Lifetime. After hearing her, you’ll have a better idea of why is it so hard to escape the past and why it keeps reinserting itself into our lives, whether we openly acknowledge it or not.
We’ll learn that each of us must become willing to truly look at our past, truly examine it, and begin to see how it has, and still is, affecting our lives. Until we do, until we begin to process and heal some of these events, until we become willing to face up to the discomfort that comes from facing the truth, the past will never truly be in the past. It will continue to haunt the present, and our future.

In Al-Anon, a 12 Step Program for people who have been affected by another’s drinking, members remind each other to Keep the Focus on Yourself. For many, those five little words scream of selfishness. How can I simply stand by and watch someone I care about suffer, or self destruct, or die? How could I be so selfish?
In this podcast, we discover that this idea is not selfish at all, and it is not cruel. It is actually just the opposite. By focusing on ourselves, instead of the people around us, we learn to create boundaries. We learn that our actions play a part in everything that goes on around us. We take away many of the ways people blame us because we no longer meddle in their lives. When we stop involving ourselves in other people’s business, even if it means we have to see them deal with the consequences of their choices and actions, we then allow them to be dignified human beings with the same power to change their lives that we recognize in ourselves.
Ultimately, keeping the focus on ourselves is an act of accepting others for who they are. And it allows us to concentrate on changing the only people we can, ourselves.

Have you ever told someone something personal and had them go off and tell someone else? Have you had someone in your life, that you truly thought had your best interest at heart, or at least should have had your best interest at heart, violate you in some manner?
Most of us have felt this on at least some level. We’ve had our trust violated. Yet we operate in a world of relationships and often have to rely on others in myriad ways. And like it or not, it requires a certain amount of trust.
In this podcast, we take on the importance of learning to trust. We learn that that trust is a skill that has to be developed, and that a true sense of wellbeing in our lives is dependant on developing that healthy sense of trust.

Is your life not where you want it to be, and you look at everyone else around you and think, Wow how is it they seem to have it all together? Do you feel stuck, like you’re in a rut, and you can’t understand why others seem to be able to move forward, but you can’t? Do you try to keep it all together, to be like a juggler and keep all of those different balls in the air, only to find yourself exhausted and feeling like a failure? And really, if you’re being honest, you’re only doing it because you don’t want others to think that you can’t?
Many of us go through life feeling tired and weary. We’re trying to do it all, or at least appear we are, and it about wears us down. We do so because we think that’s what’s expected from us in life. Everyone else seems to be able to do it, so we probably should too. Yet all we feel is trapped, in lives and situations that aren’t even exactly what we want. We just stay on that hamster wheel because we think it’s what’s expected of us. It’s how we measure up.
In this podcast, we take a look at how constantly comparing ourselves to others often results in us feeling bad about ourselves. As we compare ourselves to those around us, we see the seemingly perfect lives of others, and we just can’t understand why they can have it, but we can’t.
But if we look a bit deeper, we soon discover that we can never truly know what’s going on in other people’s lives, no matter how it appears. Just because things appear to be idyllic on the surface doesn’t mean it is in actuality.
And when all is said and done, we learn to simply focus on our own forward motion. Because in the end, our growth, our personal evolution, is the true sign of a life lived successfully.

In this podcast, we delve into a subject that can be both intimidating, and downright uncomfortable for many people. We are talking about spirituality.
This conversation is not based on any specific religious beliefs, spiritual practices or dogma. It is also not meant to persuade you in one way or another when it comes to your spiritual beliefs – whether you have them or not.
It is an attempt to take a different look at spirituality, and how at least considering it, might play and important role in each of our personal development. Its aim is to help us understand our true essence.
Its purpose is to help us understand that who we really are, isn’t rooted in all of the messiness that comes with being human, and to open us up to a new resource that we can to go to, to give us some relief from all of the hardships we face. And we learn that instead of trying to solve our problems using the same energy that is creating them, we can now tap into our true selves.
Coming up… Attorney Frank Carson on the Back Story
During her campaign for re-election DA Birgit Fladager said, “Frank Carson defended Mayor Sabatino.”
Frank Carson was not elected, but Fladagers office failed to convict Mayor Sabatino, despite an out-of-town judge and almost $1 million in resources from the taxpayers. Frank Carson had an advantage he dealt with the truth.
Sheriff Adam Christianson led an eight year investigation of AJ bail bonds followed by a five-month trial in which AJ Pontillo was exonerated and DA Dave Harris was exposed for his utter incompetence. One juror said, “The DA thought we were stupid.” Frank Carson had an advantage he dealt with the truth.
Frank Carson defended whistleblower Frank Drummond, who was accused of sexual abuse. The jury voted 11 to 1 for acquittal. The jury foreman was disappointed that they could not deliver a unanimous vote. Frank Carson had an advantage he dealt with the truth.
When DA Beth De Jung announced that the DA would not retry case, she engaged in further character assassination to explain why she lost.
These DA’s lost their “victories” because they did not seek justice.
