  • How to Overcome Negative Thinking

    Have you been strapped in tight on an emotional rollercoaster, soaring up, down, and then back up again? Are the negative thoughts or worries flooding in making it impossible for you to take back control of your happiness? As much as we all want to be more positive, negativity can be so alluring due to how our brains work to protect us. In order to venture down a more positive path, we have to convince ourselves to take action that we know will shift our mindset. In this short episode, Jen Costantino and Autumn Shields give voice to negative thinking and discuss tools to help us focus more on the positive side of things. Experiencing emotions is never a bad thing, but if you find yourself overanalyzing everything, worrying to the point that it’s all you can do, or ruminating over things you can’t control, then this episode is for you! 

    Here’s what we discussed in today’s episode:

    • Being aware of how the things in your environment make you feel & how to not let what you can’t control, control you. 
    • How to protect yourself from getting stuck in negative thinking.

  • Living Life In The Sweet Spot

    How do you know if you are living on purpose? Are you using all of your God given gifts? Tough questions….  Here are some sure signs that you may not be:

    1. You use an alarm clock to wake up in the morning.
    2. You hate Mondays, call Wednesday “hump day,” and live for Fridays.
    3. You can’t honestly look yourself in the mirror and say, “I’m doing what I was put on Earth to do.”
    4. You don’t believe making other people’s lives better is the purpose of your work.
    5. You are not (truly) grateful for what you have.
    6. Your focus is on making money.

    People that feel true satisfaction and are living on purpose find themselves surrounded by abundance.  It shows up in their relationships, their work and in their bank accounts.  They can’t wait to get up in the morning, they don’t care what day of the week it is, they are bursting at the seams with gratitude and unquestionably the purpose of their work is making other people’s lives better.  

    You may be saying to yourself, “Yeah right, life isn’t like that!” If that’s your belief then you’re right, work isn’t like that.  But if you just read that and are curious how your career can be just like that, then let’s dive deeper.
