065: Josie Robinson – Change Your Perspective with Gratitude

Josie Robinson PhotoLook for reasons to be grateful (every single day) instead of things to be upset about.

Practicing gratitude is a “keystone habit.”  The positive affects continue into other areas in your life.

“Give Thanks” System
T – Think about what you’re grateful for
H – Have an open mind (nothing you are grateful for is too small)
A – Allow yourself to feel gratitude
N – Note your gratitude (write it down)
K – Keep it in a special place51snvkxdrAL._SX338_BO1,204,203,200_
S – Share it with somebody else

Josie’s mantra when she is starting to feel frazzled is: “I am thankful for…”  When she feels herself starting to get upset or overwhelmed, she takes a second to note what is is grateful for.

Within 3 weeks of practicing gratitude, people are 25% happier, sleeping better and exercising more.  The benefits continue even after they are no longer intentionally practicing gratitude!

060: Dustin Maher – It All Starts with Your Food

DustinMaherFitness-15Stan talks to Dustin Maher of Fit Moms for Life about exercise, nutrition, and how it affects every part of our lives and business.  Our body is our engine – food is our fuel.  Exercise smarter. Change the food you eat. You are the role model for your family and company.

Food myths:

  1. Fat makes you fat
    Health fats: grass fed butter, coconut oil, cold pressed olive oil, avocados, fatty fish, raw nuts
  2. Cutting calories is the best solution to lose weight

Surround yourself with people who have similar health goals as you.  Are your family and friends moving toward health or moving toward sickness?

Don’t drink your calories
Eat more vegetables.

056: Kim Julen – Using Intuition to Grow Your Business

Kim JulenKim Julen with Finding Your Fiji discusses the importance of trusting your intuition to grow your business.  She discusses a few tests you can do right where you are to help determine whether or not you should do something.

So, how do you know it’s your intuition and not your ego?

Intuition feels natural, spontaneous, familiar
Intuition is uplifting – it feels good
Intuition is positive for highest good of all – no harm will come to others
Intuition is direct, to the point, and supportive
Intuition leaves a strong impression
Intuition is consistent
Intuition often leads to helping others
Intuition encourages making healthy changes

Intuition often comes to you through things you hear, see, think.  For example, numbers, words, animals, or triggers (if you see something and it makes you think of something else.)


How does what you say to yourself affects your reality?  Attract what you want instead of what you don’t want. The universe doesn’t hear a negative, so speak and think what you want.
