Episode 39 - No Labels, No Limits - with Pax Tandon, Mastering Mindfulness through Positive Psychology

Season 1, Ep. 39

Pax Tandon is a mindfulness thought leader with a degree from the world-renowned Masters of Applied Positive Psychology Program at the University of Pennsylvania. Through her coaching, consulting, writing, filmmaking and media appearances she has helped everyone from newbies and skeptics to seasoned meditation practitioners commit to an elevation of spirit and to flourish. She now brings these tools and strategies to a wider audience in her forthcoming book, Mindfulness Matters: A Guide to Mastering Your Life [Schiffer Publishing, August 2018].

“Mindfulness is the foundation of thriving. It is hard to fill a cup that is already full, and mindfulness helps us empty the cup so we can add in better liquid,” Tandon says. “In a world of constant distractions and stimuli, we’re losing our most valuable superpower: our ability to focus. Mindfulness brings us back to the present, the only reality that exists, and helps us stay grounded there.”

"Positive psychology isn't about being positive all the time. It's not a happy-ology. It's not a yellow bumper sticker on the back of your car. It's actually about recognizing that negative emotions serve a really strong purpose in your life and in fact negative emotions help engender a kind of change that positive emotions cannot. Negative emotions serve a purpose. Our greatest force for change are negative emotions that lead to the greatest growth."

She is a frequent speaker and presenter on women’s leadership, girls empowerment and the role social media and technology plays on girls self-esteem, confidence and brain health. Where does she find the inspiration? Maria says, "Inspiration is everywhere. You have to look to find it, but it's really found in those ordinary women, right? We call them ordinary because we haven't heard about them in the media. But it's those everyday women that are seeking their truth and they're being vulnerable and they're sharing it and, and they just keep going. Even though they hit a wall, they pivot and they try again. They inspire me to keep going."

Episode 64 - No Labels, No Limits podcast - with Joe Pettit, Professional Speaker and Nutrition Expert

Season 1, Ep. 64
It’s our honor today to interview Joe Pettit, a Professional Speaker, and a Nutrition Services Expert. He is quickly becoming one of the hottest speakers on resilience, producing results by strengthening your personal development, and leadership. He has an uncanny ability to engage, connect, and inspire audiences. He presents at state and national conferences, nonprofits, and schools. A blogger, entrepreneur, and motivation addict – he’s got an incredibly interesting story. Take a listen. Here are his instructions and advice for a smooth, daily flow, “How you set up your daily routine is how you will be able to conquer your mind, how you start your day and how you end your day. The first thing that I do when I wake up, I just say something that I'm grateful for, what, what is my mission for the day? And then immediately I go into listening to motivational videos. Now, I believe that a couple of things that cause the most friction in the morning is what we wear and what we eat. So, to eliminate this friction, at night I pick out my clothes and iron them. Then, I go ahead and cook and prepare my breakfast so that once I wake up in the morning, it's a smooth process. That is how I make sure the day is aligned.” His last bit of advice is, “Ultimately, I think there's one thing that we forget is that life is long and we need to be really patient, that things don't have to happen right away. But the number one message is to be aware of who you are and be okay with who you are.” Connect with Joe and learn more about his Garden here: www.joepettitinspires.com - get your free ebook on Inspiring Leadership FB: Joe Pettit Instagram: Joe Pettit Inspires LinkedIn: Joe Pettit #cupofjoe #NLNLpodcast #speaker #leadership #beokaywithyou #inpsiration
