Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God ~ Leo Buscaglia.
Have you ever looked at a talented and gifted person, and wondered if you had any talents and gifts as well? If so, you are definitely not alone. I have wondered the same exact thing as well. But if there is one thing life has
Yay! I’m back! I can’t believe Season 2 of the podcast is already here. I’ve missed you so much. Even though I must say, taking a break was definitely what my soul needed. However, I’m super excited to be back to you my friend. And as a result, you are in for a treat on today’s season 2 premiere episode.
On today’s episode, I discuss all the incredible things I experienced during my hiatus (i.e. getting knocked up for the second time) as well as all the mind-blowing lessons I learned along the way. One particular lesson that keeps coming back over and over again is my addiction to
Each moment of the year has its own beauty – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wohoo!!! Today’s episode is season 1 finale of the Joy in Failure podcast. I can’t believe I’ve recorded 20 whole episodes in such a short period of time. Words can’t begin to describe my gratitude for each and every one of you – for listening and reaching out and sharing all your stories, testimonies and love with me. My heart overflows with
“Playing big doesn't come from working more, pushing harder, or finding confidence. It comes from listening to the most powerful and secure part of you, not the voice of self-doubt.” ― Tara Mohr
Today's episode is inspired my one of the most transformative books I've read thus far called Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message by Tara Mohr. Lately, I've been reminded how essential it is to play big if we want to fully express who we are on this earth to be. Many of us have been taught how to play small, and hold ourselves back from
Today’s episode was inspired by lessons learned while attempting to bake my 5 year old daughter's graduation cake. Since I started to learn how to bake, I've realized time and time again that baking is exactly like life - to be successful, you have to expect to fail and mess-up countless of times. In this episode, I share a story about my buttercream disasters
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston S. Churchill
Today’s episode is a huge celebration and testimony on how making friends with failure and rejection got me a dreamy job. Wohoo!!!! This week I started a juicy job with a super nice company that literally cuts my daily commute by 3.5hrs. And the best part, I can still go on my long alignment morning walks :).
For those who may be new to the podcast, I got laid off from my
Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway! – Mother Teresa
In today’s episode, I delve deep and show you through my personal stories how to be your true self and live like you’ve got nothing to hide. As you listen, you’ll hear me share my experience last year in Oslo that inspired me to finally stop hiding from my truer, bigger self and decide no matter the situation I find myself in, to live life like I’ve got nothing to hide.
I also get super candid about
"There is no path to happiness. Happiness is the path "– Buddha
I recently discovered one of the most amazing books from an superly eclectic store in the Minneapolis airport called Frivolous (wonderfully unnecessary). The book I found is appropriately titled ‘Find Your Happy’, written by M.H. Clark and designed by Sarah Forster. And since discovering this book, I’ve literally read it to myself every single morning, which has been extremely transformative for me. It has become
There is only one person responsible for the quality of your life. That person is YOU!! – Bob Proctor
Today I talk about why it’s so important for us to treat our lives as businesses, and how we can begin to embody our personal power by becoming the Chief Executive Officers of our lives. Thanks to an epiphany I had recently, I realized instead of striving so hard at becoming the boss of something outside of me (such as a company), I always felt
Faith and fear both demand you believe in something you cannot see. You choose! – Bob Proctor
Today I explore the topic of how to choose faith over fear. To experience the joy in failure, I believe faith is one of the most useful tools we have at our disposable to help us overcome our fears and preserve despite the odds. I love the definition of faith in Hebrews 11:1, which states "faith is the confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see". I also love the common definition of fear which states "fear is the false evidence appearing real".
In this episode, I share why
Self-worth comes from one thing-thinking you are worthy – Wayne Dyer
Today I explore the topic of self-worth and how the act of feeling unworthiness tends to prevent us from experiencing the joy in failure.
Once upon a time, we were kids who were so sure of ourselves and so full of self-worth. Until we were conditioned to depend on circumstances and people outside of ourselves to feel whole and worthy. As adults, we continued on our quest for
Not until we are lost do we begin to find ourselves – Henry David Thoreau
In today’s episode, I explore the question on “how to find joy when you feel lost”. Right now, I’m in this space of the 'unknown' after losing my job a couple of months ago. And lately, even though I have become very skilled at
he purpose of life is to know yourself and love yourself and trust yourself and be yourself – Yogi Tea quote
In honor of the 10th episode of the podcast, I was incredibly inspired to share 10 lessons that have changed my life. In this conversation, I get super candid about what held me back in the past from being true to my inner being, following
