Something Of Value

Our society has a variety of ways to convince you that someone or something is valuable. Titles, wealth, cost, status, and many others.

Seizing The Moment

Carpe diem. Seize the day. These words are easy to say, but how do you do it? You may get overwhelmed with the idea of seizing the day if you think it requires grand gestures or huge acts of service (that you don’t have the time, energy or money for!)

But thankfully that’s not the case. Small actions can make a tremendous impact in your life and the lives of those around you.

In this episode, mindset and business coach Kevin Breeding and I discuss why the little things are a big deal, the importance of authenticity, and why you should take risks in life.

  • How to crush overwhelm when confronting your biggest goals ([14:00])
