Episode 11 Emotions

Episode 11 Emotions

September 19, 2021

There are positive emotions and negative emotions.

In the book by Napolean Hill, “Think and Grow Rich,” Mr. Hill talks about how your impulses are affected by positive and negative emotions.

Use your positive emotions to feed your creative effort.

Negative emotions will affect you, well, negatively.

Mr. Hill states that, “Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time.”

We must form habits to apply and use positive emotions so that there is not room for negative emotions to occupy our mind.

In this episode, I will expand on my acronym, RISE.

We are faced with many challenges every day.

Each challenge offers YOU the opportunity to make a choice. You are able to choose how to proceed, who to include, who to exclude, etc

Really examining what you have to offer and what those around you have to offer provides the opportunity to see the value in yourself and the value in others.

This leads me to the RISE acronym:

Realize Individuals' Significance Everywhere


Episode 7 FOCUS

Episode 7 FOCUS

July 12, 2021
In this episode I will take you on another brief coaching journey.
I will talk about focus. Focus is to pay particular attention to something or make something the center of attention.
In today’s society of being too busy, many things can be thrown your way at once.
Multitasking is coveted while prioritization may be lacking.  This can cause nothing to be completed well.
It can also cause you to lose your way, your path, your purpose in life.
To tackle this, I have broken down focus into 5 sections: Find, Original, Creative, Unique and Solutions. It is an easy way to remember how to FOCUS on what is important.
Listen to Episode 7 of Cultivate to Thrive Podcast to experience the journey of FOCUS.

Episode 6 REST

Episode 6 REST

June 21, 2021

In this episode I will talk about REST!  Revitalize and Energize Self for Transition!

I ask you, if you are seldom refreshed and energized, how can you be your best for others?

Life happens. We get caught up with deadlines and expectations.  We are often pulled by the busyness of life. It seems society teaches us that if we are not always busy, we must not be successful.

I disagree. If you are not resting and revitalizing yourself, you cannot be successful.

Often times when we are on a mission of change or meeting demands, we just persevere no matter what our body tells us. This can be very detrimental to our health.


Listen as i give tips to be the best you that you can be!

When was the last time you checked on your own wellbeing? What does that even mean? Sure, we understand what it means when someone asks us how we are doing.
