You won’t get there by doing what’s expected of you. You can’t play by the rules you’ve been taught to follow. Those rules don’t work for you." "Free people don’t have shoulds. They have choices." "As you can see by my resume, it didn’t take me long to realize that my path didn’t look like that of my peers. The benefit of this kind of resume is that I didn’t have the option of pretending that I could still succeed within the system." Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

[...] Now when I’m making decisions about how I want to live my life, or do my work, I can do what’s best for me regardless of opinions that might not be supportive. I’ve also realized that other people’s thoughts about me aren’t really about me. They are about them." "Deciding what to wear requires mental energy better spent on other things. [...] Now, in curating a small capsule wardrobe, there are no daily decisions required. I get to wear my favorite things every day. I streamline other decisions too so when it comes to being creative and making the big choices, I have energy and clarity."

Mark Manson talks about paying attention to the right things Episode 2975: Are You Entertained - Or Addicted? by Mark Manson on Paying Attention to the Right Things Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew. By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well. That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month. Check out his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--- on his site or Amazon.

2947: Declutter the Holiday Schedule With These 3 Simple Steps by Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism on Staying Calm During the Holidays

Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism talks about decluttering the holiday schedule Episode 2947: Declutter the Holiday Schedule With These 3 Simple Steps by Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism on Staying Calm During the Holidays Rachel started her journey to minimalism in 2008, struggling with depression and horribly embarrassed by the messy state of her home. Her goal for pursuing minimalism was to find contentment and joy in spending time with family and being able to focus on Christ. What she found was that minimalism wasn’t the answer. But it is a tool to use to help you focus on what’s important. Her mission is to help others turn their home into their own personal oasis. Having found an immense amount of freedom with minimalism, it's her goal to share the methods of simplifying and the tools that she had to rely on (and still does!) to maintain a home that is easy to take care of and a joyful space to live.

Kate Hesse of Nourish Nest Breathe talks about self-compassion as a tool for wellbeing Episode 2925: Self-Compassion: A Powerful Tool For Wellbeing by Kate Hesse on How to Be More Kind to Yourself When you implement the NNB Formula, you get really clear on your priorities and values, you set and hold healthy boundaries in alignment with those priorities and values, and you build a sustainable self-care and self-work routine into your life. And suddenly, living a life you love stops being a dream and becomes your everyday reality. There are three pillars in the NNB Formula: -Priorities & Values: figuring out what is most important to YOU -Boundaries: learning how to set and maintain healthy boundaries which align with your priorities and values -Sustainable Self-Care & Self-Work: integrating self-care (nourishing) and self-work (expanding) activities into your daily life in a way that works for you and your schedule.

2921: The Gift of Subtraction by Rich and Regular on Financial Priorities

Julien Saunders of Rich and Regular talks about the gift of subtraction. Episode 2921: The Gift of Subtraction by Rich and Regular on Financial Priorities Julien and Kiersten started rich & REGULAR in 2017 after their stint in real estate investing led them to discover the F.I.R.E movement. At that point, they'd listened to their friends complain about doing everything right, and still not really "feeling" happy with the financial progress they'd made. Their blog became a place where they not only shared in their frustrations, but offered solutions to a richer and happier life. They could not have imagined that just a few years later, they would sign a book deal with the world's largest publisher, Penguin Random House. But that's not all. Their blog has afforded them opportunities to work with incredible brands, world-class media and into the fast-paced world of digital entrepreneurship.

She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

2918: 3 Principles for a Better Life by Mark Manson on How to Get Comfortable With Uncertainty

Mark Manson shares 3 principles for a better life Episode 2918: 3 Principles for a Better Life by Mark Manson on How to Get Comfortable With Uncertainty Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew. By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well. That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month. Check out his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--- on his site or Amazon.

Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism talks about how minimal living inspires creativity Episode 2859: The Art of Less: How Minimal Living Inspires Creativity by Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism Rachel started her journey to minimalism in 2008, struggling with depression and horribly embarrassed by the messy state of her home. Her goal for pursuing minimalism was to find contentment and joy in spending time with family and being able to focus on Christ. What she found was that minimalism wasn’t the answer. But it is a tool to use to help you focus on what’s important. Her mission is to help others turn their home into their own personal oasis. Having found an immense amount of freedom with minimalism, it's her goal to share the methods of simplifying and the tools that she had to rely on (and still does!) to maintain a home that is easy to take care of and a joyful space to live.

2841: [Part 2] How to Grow from Your Pain by Mark Manson on Understanding Your Trauma and Overcoming Depression

Mark Manson tells us how we can grow from our pain. This is part 2 of 2. Episode 2841: [Part 2] How to Grow from Your Pain by Mark Manson on Understanding Your Trauma and Overcoming Depression Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew. By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well. That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month.

She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.
