Episode 9 – How to Manage Impulse Control

Are you struggling to match the things you know you should be doing to the the actions you’re actually taking? If so, you might need some help.

We want to help you grow your self control, strengthen good habits, and achieve more. This episode talks about how to get past the desire of doing what’s pleasurable in the moment. Plus, gives useful tips on how master the “ability to resist.”

This can be a challenge. Our culture and technology has allowed and encouraged “easy access” to many things. Doing what matters can take hard work and time. What’s more often appealing is flipping on Netflix and snacking on junk food instead.

There’s a joy in hedonism. It’s attractive to us to rid ourselves of hard work and engage in the “shiny” things right in front of us. In a world of MORE MORE MORE, it’s easier than ever to embrace the many options at our fingertips.

But this approach may not always be healthy or sustainable.

In fact, it creates a pattern of NOT doing the things we know we should be doing. Then feeling bad about it.

Often the things that feel great in the moment are not good for you in the long term. Such as: eating healthy, saving your paycheck, or skipping a night out with friends to catch up on sleep. We know this, but we still struggle to break free from the instant gratification.

If we can fine tune our capability to “resist” and practice more impulse control, we’ll start to see change. In fact, this ninja move could create a HUGE difference. You will find strengthening your delayed gratification muscle may give you deeper fulfillment.

If you grow your impulse control muscle, you’re going see massive benefits in your life. You’ll feel more trustworthy, dependable, and fulfilled. You’ll find clearer direction on what’s important for you to be “doing.” And your mind will be more steady. This will lead to a more sustainable version of yourself.

In this episode we also discuss:

  • Two crucial abilities to master in your doing.
  • Understanding how technology impacts practicing delayed gratification.
  • How instant gratification may lead to addiction.
  • Balancing your desires and your actions.
  • Find sustainability in “doing.”
  • Why mindfulness helps grow impulse control.
  • Understanding what matters most.
  • Focusing your attention.
  • How willpower can serve you.
  • Benefits of being “present.”

Episode 8 – Shifting From Unconscious Consumer to Inspired Creator

How would you feel if all you had to do in your life was consume?

I mean literally being a king or queen – everything is is handled for you and you just sit there and wait for the grapes to be put straight in your mouth. How nice does that sound?

You see, never in history has there been so much to consume and so many options for how to consume them. And never has it been laid out so easily right in front of us.

In the 90s we’d joke about having a 100 cable channels (“but nothing’s on!”). Now there’s practically 100 streaming services with years worth of content on each one…

So what ever happened to writing, speaking, singing, playing music, or just telling stories?
How about becoming a leader and starting a movement?

There are massive advantages to the way we live today – the internet helps us connect to people all over the world, repetitive and dangerous tasks are automated, and life is just so much easier than it ever has been.

But what about you? What’s your contribution?

What even matters to you? Do you know?

Now that you’ve thought about it, let me ask again… How would you feel if all you had to do in your life was consume?

If you’re like many of the people I hear from, you would actually feel pretty empty.

In fact, my clients come to me because they want to be the type of person who is true to their word, who builds a business and delivers amazing value, who gives to others, and offers wisdom that people really want to listen to.

In others words – they don’t want to be just a consumer, they want to be a creator.

So what do you really want from your life? Would you rather be a creator?

In today’s episode, you’ll learn…

  • Why the source of our self-love is by showing up, doing our work, and keeping our word.
  • How focusing on serving others is the shortcut to confidence.
  • What you can decide to do today to change your identity from consumer to creator.
  • How you can flip the script and take control of your life with conscious consuming.
  • The massive upgrade that happens when you learn to control you desire and pair it with gratitude.

If you want to be a well-respected thinker, author, podcaster, entrepreneur, human, etc… You have to know what matters to you. Tune into the show today for a kick in the pants to get you started.

Episode 7 – How to Find Clarity and Take Action Now

Learn two simple strategies to gain more clarity and stop being stuck in overwhelm. If you struggle with overwhelm, you will most likely notice a lack of clarity in your life.

Ever have something little happen and right then, in the moment, it feels like the biggest deal in the world?

Well, we’re trapped in a culture that expects us to be in a constant state of responding to stimuli. TV, on facebook, on twitter, on the phone, at work, in the car – when you combine that with a lack of clarity it starts to look like:

  • I don’t know what to do.
  • I can’t connect with others.
  • I’m always anxious and overwhelmed.
  • My life has no purpose.

Do you find yourself thinking or saying things like this?

Do you know the difference it would make if you knew without a doubt what really mattered to you? The clarity of knowing what you value matters. It matters a lot.

Because the fact is this… Switch focus to what you can control. Your stress and fatigue will disappear almost immediately. And then you can start making real changes in your life with no resistance.

So how can you build the skills to know what to do in any moment and make a clear choice to move forward?

In this week’s podcast, Rob discusses…

  • Why we must find clarity in our lives.
  • How overcommitting is the quickest way to destroy your self-confidence.
  • How to get instant relief from overwhelm and stress.
  • An easy tip to stop procrastinating.
  • How to hold boundaries (exercising the “No Muscle”).
  • Ways to simplify and unplug from technology.
  • The shortcut to authentic self-love and self-confidence.
  • How you set yourself up for failure when you don’t know your limits.
  • How to finally be true to yourself (and everyone in your life).
  • Why social media affects our brain chemistry and prevents us from living our best life.
  • And maybe most importantly… The pain we create by putting our attention on what we can’t control.

Plus, Rob let’s us in on the secret that lets us have the self-love and self-respect to say yes and really mean it… Or say no, confidently, when you don’t.

Look, for most of us, there’s a huge distance between what we say we value and what our actions say we value. If you find yourself making excuses to friends, family, and coworkers like “that’s not me” or “that’s not how I want to show up”… Then this episode is for you.

Next Steps:

  1. Connect with your values.
  2. Identify what you can actually control.
  3. Simplify – say no to things if they aren’t aligned with your values and aren’t something you can fully control.
  4. Strengthen your NO muscle- that’s how you stay simple and keep your word to yourself and others.

Episode 6 – What’s Stopping You From Making More Money?

Alright, quick quiz time (Be honest!):

Which do you find yourself saying more often?

  • I want to be wealthy or…
  • I love the money I have

If you’re like a lot of the clients Rob’s helped, you are just dying to find that automatic button that lets you make more money day after day, and year after year.

Or maybe…you might think that kind of sounds like a fiction?

So, real talk: You’re not likely to stumble upon a big red button that changes your life in an instant…

But it turns out you might be carrying around some baggage that’s creating a ‘money limit’ in your life.

And breaking through your money limit might be as simple as noticing that burden you’re carrying and choosing to put it down.

We’re not talking about very real, very tangible obstacles that you have to overcome – what Rob covers today are the hidden (from you) limitations you’ve placed on yourself that you have the choice to let go of whenever you choose.

So how about learning to identify yours in the next 25 minutes?

In today’s episode, Sarah and Rob discuss:

  • Fear of failure and why plenty of people worry about failing in front of people they respect, but that’s not what really holds most people back.
  • Fear of success, which you probably don’t believe in, but might be the number one reason you can’t make lasting progress towards your goals.
  • Why your unconscious beliefs about “rich people” can prevent you from owning the identity of a wealthy person – and ultimately STOP you from building habits that will cultivate gratitude.
  • Plus, how we use all of these things to construct our own ‘money ceiling’ that we simply cannot let ourselves get past…in fact, if you’re close to hitting it, you’re probably already sabotaging yourself and pushing more money away.

Next Steps

If you haven’t listened to the podcast before, than this might surprise you… but it all comes back to the identity you choose to give yourself. That’s right! You get to choose your own identity – you can even choose to be the person you thought you had to wait to be until you crossed off every item on your 10 year plan.
