How to cope during difficult times #111

Ep. 111
Life is totugh without adversity but when it strikes its always a good tip to know the things that will help us cope during those difficult times.Transcript:So life is tough enough as it is. Whether its striving for that next promotion, that 6 pac physique or juggling your hobbies with your children.But what happens when adversity strikes and times become even more difficult?Well this video will give you some steps to really protect your mental health and wellbeing during these times.Write it down: Journalling or simply writing down what has happened is a key to removing the mismatch of ideas and scenarios you are creating in your head. You will likely jot more logical representations of what is actually going on and you are more likely to find a solution either to solve the difficulty you are facing or coping with it.Tackle it. If it is something that can be tackled, then one of the sure fire ways to eliminate or ease your fears is to tackle it. Now ideally this should come after step 1, as you will likely have a better solution for tackling your difficulty.Get support. Your friends and family are there to be leaned upon and not ignored or avoided during your times of difficulty. I have found personal strength, encouragement and support when I have found the courage to reach out in my moments of adversity and I cannot recommend it enough. If you are facing something more serious, especially mental health related, please see your GP and request further help.Remind yourself of the last time you faced a challenge or time of difficulty and how you are still here today to watch this video or listen to this podcast. This can be your badge of honour or reminder to jog your memory of how resilient you are.Control the controllables. I speak about this more than I speak about anything but if we can remember this quote, mantra we will always have a better perspective on things we are able to control and cope with during difficult times.Allow yourself some time to go through what your going through. If you are grieving, be kind to yourself and give yourself the time you need. If you are facing obstacles or difficulties that you want to scream and shout about, do it. Just don't let it become an everyday thing and know that at some stage you have to take that step forward and grow from the experience.Prioritise your self care routines. These include working out, eating right, hydration, meditation etc. The things you know after doing them, positively benefit you are often the things we quickly neglect or stop doing when we need to do them the most.Episode on forgiveness:https://youtu.be/Rq1oDkLYpqkBooks to buy:Buy Outwitting the Devil: https://amzn.to/3c97pGqBuy Principles: https://amzn.to/2ZOk1jsBuy How to stop worrying & start living: https://amzn.to/3esi4h4Buy The 4 hour work week: https://amzn.to/3cuAwnZBuy Essentialism: https://amzn.to/2xHUTiLBuy Mindset by Carol Dweck https://amzn.to/2QajMvZSupport the podcast: https://www.patreon.com/findyourvoicePodcast equipment recommended:Rodecaster Pro: https://amzn.to/2M36Lj5Rode podmic: https://amzn.to/36yfYcyRode NT-USB - https://amzn.to/2X7LsDpCameras:Sony DSCHX90 Digital- https://amzn.to/2TCAfIDCanon Powershot SX730 HS- https://amzn.to/2yQkbs6Canon EOS 4000D DSLR Cameraand EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 III Lens -https://amzn.to/2WYtWkTNikon D5300- https://amzn.to/3c825mNLogitech BRIO 4K webcam- https://amzn.to/3enEuA1Sony a6500 mirrorless- https://amzn.to/2ZAOJfWPodcast host (acast):Acast: https://open.acast.com/invite/r/arendeuLinks to me:YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/findyourvoicepodcastWebsite: https://www.arendeu.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/aren.deu/Twitter: https://twitter.com/arendeuFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/aren.singhLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/aren-deu/Podcast: https://www.findyourvoicepodcast.com/subscribeAs an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases, but you are charged the same.

How to be unapolgetically you, with Tanya J Miller who is a speaker, coach and author showing up daily, with purpose, with intent to be 100% authentically herself. A fascinating conversation we had a few weeks ago which should have been released earlier. Sadly due to personal unforseen circumstances it was halted as the intro of the show stated.But life will continue to test us and providing we still have the ability to sit the test, i.e. live and breathe we can live to fight another day. Tanya has been through immense adversity in her life and does not shy away from the necessary processes that we may sometimes need to fall on, such as trauma and doing deeper work. I hope you enjoyed this episode and be sure to reach out if either of us can ever help.Key time stamps:09:25 Imposter syndrome12:30 Somebody needs what you have20:30 How to deal with loss / grief27:50 Use the hard timesI urge you all to follow his journey below:Episode on forgiveness:https://youtu.be/Rq1oDkLYpqkBooks to buy:Buy Outwitting the Devil: https://amzn.to/3c97pGqBuy Principles: https://amzn.to/2ZOk1jsBuy How to stop worrying & start living: https://amzn.to/3esi4h4Buy The 4 hour work week: https://amzn.to/3cuAwnZBuy Essentialism: https://amzn.to/2xHUTiLBuy Mindset by Carol Dweck https://amzn.to/2QajMvZSupport the podcast: https://www.patreon.com/findyourvoicePodcast equipment recommended:Rodecaster Pro: https://amzn.to/2M36Lj5Rode podmic: https://amzn.to/36yfYcyRode NT-USB - https://amzn.to/2X7LsDpCameras:Sony DSCHX90 Digital- https://amzn.to/2TCAfIDCanon Powershot SX730 HS- https://amzn.to/2yQkbs6Canon EOS 4000D DSLR Cameraand EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 III Lens -https://amzn.to/2WYtWkTNikon D5300- https://amzn.to/3c825mNLogitech BRIO 4K webcam- https://amzn.to/3enEuA1Sony a6500 mirrorless- https://amzn.to/2ZAOJfWPodcast host (acast):Acast: https://open.acast.com/invite/r/arendeuLinks to me:YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/findyourvoicepodcastWebsite: https://www.arendeu.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/aren.deu/Twitter: https://twitter.com/arendeuFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/aren.singhLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/aren-deu/Podcast: https://www.findyourvoicepodcast.com/subscribePlease reach out to Tanya:All links: https://www.tanyajmiller.com/As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases, but you are charged the same.

how to stop procrastinating #108

Ep. 108
Do you procrastinate? Is procrastinating ruining your happiness? Do you even know if you procrastinate?Then maybe this episode is for you.Transcript:1. Fear of failing perhaps? So we leave It until the last moment. When we fear failure we actuals desire control and procrastinating at least makes you feel like you are in control. 2. Perfectionism. Very closely linked! This isn’t great though! Perfectionism is linked to anxiety and depression. When we look for perfectionism we are just adding pressure to our mental state. 3. Night owl? A random one right, but this is something I've realised. My most creative time is in the evening. Now I'm odd because I don't mind mornings either in terms of productivity but evenings is where I work my best or have my most creativity moments. Can you relate to this?4. Self-doubt? Studies have shown self-doubt and procrastination to be linked. Now self-doubt is okay if you are seriously self-aware and realise maybe just not YET you are where you need to be. However, if thats not the case and you are just your worst critic, doubting your ability and failing to see that even just doing right now will provide long term will see you procrastinating and never really get going until either the end, or just completely abandoned the task altogether. Dont doubt yourself. At the very least accept where you are now but recognise you can and will become so much better with execution over time.Now if you recognise these as some of your traits don't despair there are ways to overcome this too!1. For me personally, I had to stop being a perfectionist. I had to let go of this elusive, impossible expectation of being perfect. 2. I realised that my goal of becoming more was more important than my guaranteed learning moments. Now I call these learning moments as I know I will never be as good today as I will be tomorrow, and just knowing that eases pressure but also inspires me for the brighter future. Think about something you do so well today? Perhaps its driving while you listen OR playing an instrument for example. Was you this good when you first started? Of course not. Remember that its important next time you let self-doubt come in.3. Recognise when you are at your best. So judging on the night owl point, If you are better at night, then tailor your day to suit your creativity moments. It won't seem like procrastinating then.Episode on Perfectionism:https://shows.acast.com/findyourvoiceEpisode on forgiveness:https://youtu.be/Rq1oDkLYpqkBooks to buy:Buy Outwitting the Devil: https://amzn.to/3c97pGqBuy Principles: https://amzn.to/2ZOk1jsBuy How to stop worrying & start living: https://amzn.to/3esi4h4Buy The 4 hour work week: https://amzn.to/3cuAwnZBuy Essentialism: https://amzn.to/2xHUTiLBuy Mindset by Carol Dweck https://amzn.to/2QajMvZSupport the podcast: https://www.patreon.com/findyourvoicePodcast equipment recommended:Rodecaster Pro: https://amzn.to/2M36Lj5Rode podmic: https://amzn.to/36yfYcyRode NT-USB - https://amzn.to/2X7LsDpCameras:Sony DSCHX90 Digital- https://amzn.to/2TCAfIDCanon Powershot SX730 HS- https://amzn.to/2yQkbs6Canon EOS 4000D DSLR Cameraand EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 III Lens -https://amzn.to/2WYtWkTNikon D5300- https://amzn.to/3c825mNLogitech BRIO 4K webcam- https://amzn.to/3enEuA1Sony a6500 mirrorless- https://amzn.to/2ZAOJfWPodcast host (acast):Acast: https://open.acast.com/invite/r/arendeuLinks to me:YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/findyourvoicepodcastWebsite: https://www.arendeu.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/aren.deu/Twitter: https://twitter.com/arendeuFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/aren.singhLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/aren-deu-...Podcast: https://www.findyourvoicepodcast.com/subscribe

Why you need to unlearn #107

Ep. 107
One of the great things with life is, it teaches us wisdom. Now whether we choose to listen to podcasts, read books or learn from those who have walked the path before us, wisdom can immensely help your journey to finding your own voice and achieving your own successesBut half of true wisdom in my eyes is learning to UNLEARN the things that are not true and we have been told throughout the majority of our lives.So in this short video (if you’re on YouTube) or podcast if you’re listening there, I am going to run through some things we must 100% start to unlearn starting NOW!1. You Must Stay HappyThis is so dangerous because we are on this constant pursuit of happiness, almost as if there is a time or place where we will only ever experience bliss.I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news and drop a spoiler here but that is not possible.Also more importantly there’s nothing wrong with you if you feel angry, sad, jealous, anxious or any other emotions other than happy.Emotions don’t define you.2. Being Alone Is Same As Being LonelySpending time alone is one of the best things you can do for your life and your wellbeing. It will give you time and the environment to plan and reflect on your life.Don’t miss the solo meetings with yourself and recognise its not the same as loneliness. I have also done a crucial video on how to solve loneliness on the channel if you are experiencing that so check it out.3. Your skill set and potential is predeterminedThe most important thing I can ever tell you, is that you can achieve and become great at anything you truly want, over a long enough period of time if you are willing to work at it and level up.So make sure you jump back to some book recommendation videos or check the description for some books that truly changed my life. Carol Dweck mindset, Outwitting the Devil Napoleon hill and breaking the habit of being yourself, Dr Joe dispense!4. Money Is…For some of us, we feel money is everything and the answer to all suffering in life.If only we just had enough than we would be happy and successful..But then we have the reverse this to this which is, money is the root of all evil. And that intrinsically stops us ever really attracting or striving to earn more.What I will say is these beliefs need to be unlearned asap. Neither will serve you.Money will enhance your personality, it will allow you to create more opportunities for you and others and it is only the love of money that is evil.Please dont think happiness comes with money. Happiness is a state of mind and can be manifested at anytime if you allow yourself to do so.5. Failure is a bad thingGrowing up failure was the worst word in the world. NIf you fail a test at school, its not the test you failed, its almost like you are the failure yourself.Failure throughout the rest of your life should be done with the same enthusiasm and awareness that it is a teachablemoment to one day help you succeed.6. Success Is The Finishing LineThe pursuit of success never ends. There are no destinations that you will ever be satisfied with.As you reach one milestone, your goals and dreams will shift towards another, and then another and then another.There is nothing wrong with this, but it is dangerous if you do not recognise this.Now just a kind reminder, that if you haven’t already please do smash that notification bell, and like button and subscribe to the channel if you find this or any of the other episodes useful, it would be truly appreciated. Okay back to it…So anyway, this thing called success in life.We must recognise that Life is a journey, a game, and we have control of how we play it. But don’t just fixate your mind on the final level, and miss out all the fun along the way!The relationships, the adversities you can add to your wisdom, your wins and of course the growth across all your life!7. Obstacles Ruin Your LifeYou dont need me to tell you my views on adversity.They can be our biggest gifts, our best teachers and builders of traits you cant get from simply reading a book or watching someone else!8. Listening too everything you’re toldRemember people tell you what they usually think they know. A person speaking with certainty or confidence does not always mean a person speaking facts, or the truth. So sometimes, people can tell you the wrong advice.Only take advice, from someone you are willing to trade places with, for that particular advice.Episode on forgiveness:https://youtu.be/Rq1oDkLYpqkBooks to buy:Buy Outwitting the Devil: https://amzn.to/3c97pGqBuy Principles: https://amzn.to/2ZOk1jsBuy How to stop worrying & start living: https://amzn.to/3esi4h4Buy The 4 hour work week: https://amzn.to/3cuAwnZBuy Essentialism: https://amzn.to/2xHUTiLBuy Mindset by Carol Dweck https://amzn.to/2QajMvZSupport the podcast: https://www.patreon.com/findyourvoicePodcast equipment recommended:Rodecaster Pro: https://amzn.to/2M36Lj5Rode podmic: https://amzn.to/36yfYcyRode NT-USB - https://amzn.to/2X7LsDpCameras:Sony DSCHX90 Digital- https://amzn.to/2TCAfIDCanon Powershot SX730 HS- https://amzn.to/2yQkbs6Canon EOS 4000D DSLR Cameraand EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 III Lens -https://amzn.to/2WYtWkTNikon D5300- https://amzn.to/3c825mNLogitech BRIO 4K webcam- https://amzn.to/3enEuA1Sony a6500 mirrorless- https://amzn.to/2ZAOJfWPodcast host (acast):Acast: https://open.acast.com/invite/r/arendeuLinks to me:YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/findyourvoicepodcastWebsite: https://www.arendeu.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/aren.deu/Twitter: https://twitter.com/arendeuFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/aren.singhLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/aren-deu-...Podcast: https://www.findyourvoicepodcast.com/subscribe
