Episode 34 – Change Your Story

Do you have the tools to manage your own mindset?

In this episode, Sarah and Rob provide tools for you to enhance and enjoy your life, even in the face of a worldwide pandemic.

Right now, so many of us are being challenged by different obstacles. It’s more important than ever to master your inner narrative.

Moving your attention out of the “circle of concern” and into what you control, can be extremely useful, especially in difficult situations.

Having the ability to shift your meaning allows you to minimize suffering instantly. Gaining this skill lets you enhance your reality, no matter what you’re dealing with.

Remember, literally every thought you’re thinking is a form of story. It’s the meaning making that you’re doing at that moment.

Crafting a different narrative, for your own identity, for others, and for your own capabilities gives you the power to change your experience of any moment.

If you embody that skill you can minimize your suffering and become truly resilient in the face of adversity.

Episode 28 – The Skill of “Being”

High achievers listen up! Episode 28 of The Rob Scott Show is going to help you understand that achievement isn’t actually the key to being fulfilled.

During this episode, Rob and Sarah talk about the difference between skill and strategy. Strategizing and problem solving isn’t necessarily bad, and can lead to effectiveness and productivity.

However, if you let your mind be continually focused on what’s next, strategizing how to get to “there,” you’re going to miss out on the joy that’s available to you. You’ll never feel satisfied and fulfilled, no matter what you achieve.

There’s actually no “path to presence.” We’re always arrived and it’s up to us to exercise the “skill of being.” Learning to embody the present moment will let you feel more happiness and fulfillment in your being and doing.

I hope this episode gives you a breakthrough and helps you feel more joy in your life.
