Encore: Silence

We all like music, TV and conversations, but you might be surprised by the damage noise can do (even when you’re having fun).

Clogging your brain with loud sounds, alerts, and pings leads to a poor sleep schedule and sabotages your ability to focus. And you can’t lead if you can’t think.

While quiet time can feel like you’re missing out on something, it gives your brain time to reflect and rest (which is impossible to get in a busy, chaotic world). 

In this episode, you’ll discover how to stop the buzz and use silence as a tool for a more peaceful and powerful life. 

Show Highlights Include:

  • How to stop treating silence like a ‘timeout’ and embrace it to boost your intuition and awareness. ([0:52])
  • Why spending time in silence turns you into a true leader (and the three leadership skills silence teaches you). ([5:06])
  • How to stop ‘noise pollution’ from stressing out your body, raising your blood pressure, and damaging your hearing. ([6:33])
  • How to create the most concentrated and productive learning space with an ‘Albert Einstein’ level of noise. ([11:52])
  • Why ten minutes of quiet time is essential to your mental health (and how the military, workforce and schools use silence to boost performance). ([14:38])

It’s easy to respond with negativity in a negative world. But what if one bad thought led to a day of bad decisions? Would you think differently?

Encore: Forgiveness

Whether you’re stuck in painful memories or too scared to make a move, forgiveness isn’t always easy. And while some of us can forgive at the drop of a dime, others spend a lifetime trying. Some never forgive at all.

Encore: Gusto

If you’ve never heard of the word ‘gusto,’ it means doing something with zest or a spark. That’s the way most of us want to live our lives. 

But most people don’t live with gusto. They’re stuck in their comfort zones, which prevent them from taking on the challenges they need to grow.

Having gusto is about pushing out of comfort zones to live life to the max. If you can’t step out of your comfort zone, then you can’t grow into something greater.  

In this episode, you’ll discover how to find enjoyment in your days and give life meaning with a little gusto.

Encore: Storms

Nobody can survive their entire life without being leveled by a few personal storms. Whether they be financial, spiritual, physical, or with your relationships.
