It’s OK to Not Be OK with Markus Kasunich – 10-29-16

August 30, 2016

How many times have you asked someone “Are you OK?”.  We’ve all done it.  We want to know the person is doing well, and has life under control. Most of us respond to that question with an automatic “Yes, I’m OK”.  We’ve told ourselves a story that our goal should be to be OK, comfortable, and satisfied in our life.  But it’s not always possible to say that things are “OK”.  Events and circumstances can put us in situations where we are not “OK”, and where we are challenged to navigate emotions and discomfort that is unfamiliar.  There is growth available to us in these moments if we can learn to be “OK with not being OK”, and to avoid telling ourselves that this is not the way the story should look.

This week guest Markus Kasunich will share his perspective on the opportunities that arise in the moments when we are not OK, and when we are not comfortable.  He will help us to see that “not being OK” is actually a normal and natural place to be, if we choose to embrace it.

You DO Deserve a Wonderful Life with Sammy Rangel – 10-22-16

August 29, 2016

When you were young, what did you imagine your life would be like when you grew older?  You might have had images and expectations of a family, a home, a fulfilling career, or many of the other trappings of what most would consider a rich, wonderful life.  But sometimes perceived wrongdoings  in our past, or a low sense of self worth can make us believe a story that we don’t deserve to have a rich, wonderful life.  Or maybe those around us have led us to believe that we are not qualified or worthy to fulfill our dreams.  This story that we tell ourselves about what we “deserve” in life can be a roadblock to achieving our own potential and keep us from seeing our life unfold in ways that would fill us with joy and satisfaction.  How can we change the story in our heads so that we truly believe we deserve to live a wonderful life?

Joining us this week is one of our most popular guests, who has overcome his own challenging past to help inspire and coach others to truly believe that they too deserve good things in their life, for themselves and their family.

We often tell the inspiring stories of our guests, their ability to find new and better ways to do things, and to overcome challenges in their lives.  This week we turn the tables on the idea of stories, and we look closer at the stories we tell ourselves.  These stories are often our own creation, not based in real facts, and are holding us back from reaching our true potential. What stories are you telling yourself that are in the way of your growth as a being?

Pushing Past Limitations, Following Dreams with Traci Bogan – 9-10-16

August 1, 2016

We are all presented with unique challenges in our lives, and the way that we react and respond to them can change the course of what follows on life’s journey.  This week we explore what one individual did in response to the realization that she needed to make a dramatic shift in her life if she wanted to reach her potential and see her dreams become a reality.  What would you do when faced with the prospect of needing to drastically change the course of your life?  Join us this week as we continue our “People You Should Know” discussion, and share one individual’s inspiring story.

TraciBoganTraci Bogan has made her life’s focus the practice of accomplishing seemingly unachievable goals and dreams.  In 2001 she made the daring and unconventional decision to abandon life as she knew it and walked away from her earthly possessions, consuming career, unfulfilling relationship, and loved ones. She strapped on a backpack and set off to discover the world and her role in it. Since then she has backpacked 75,000 miles, in six continents, traveling through 54 countries of her ongoing 100-country world adventure.

Traci has published 4 books and explores a new country every year, adopting a school and family in need along the way. She has also lived in Alaska, Texas, and China.

In 1992, Traci Bogan spearheaded a campaign to enact legislation that increased the criminal Statute of Limitations for sex crimes against children. This legislation was dubbed “The Bogan Bill,” and it was largely due to her persistent efforts and grassroots lobbying that the law was changed in 1994.

Traci has a degree in marketing, and is a coach and keynote speaker, having been interviewed on various television shows and magazines.  To learn more about Traci, please go to www.tracibogan.com.
