    267: You're Not Here to Be Average

    22/05/2020 Duration: 12min

    I worked for a company in the 2000s where one of the messages leadership drilled into our heads was “You’re not here to be average.”    The products we sold were not average. The sales team was not average. The owner of the company was not average. And these were good things. I loved hearing this message over and over again because it helped me when times got tough, as times did then, and as times do now.   Reminding myself that I’m not here to be average still helps center me all these years later. I got to thinking about this phrase today when I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw a list Ramit Sethi posted on his feed called “5 thoughts on standing out.” If you haven’t heard of Ramit, he’s the author of the best selling book I Will Teach You to Be Rich. He has also built a sizable online business based on that book.   Here’s what’s on the list:   -The rarest thing in the world is a strong point of view -You’re not trying to serve everyone, just the right people -There’s always room for the best -Cre

    When actors forget their lines during filming, they are known to call out to the crew off-camera, "LINE!" Cue cards in hand, the crew responds, the actors remember, and filming resumes -- or doesn't, as the case may be when actors for whatever reason cannot recall what they are supposed to say.   Today was one of those days when I thought I was ready for my scenes...but discovered I needed help with my lines halfway through the session. The lesson I share with you is short and sweet and oh-so-relatable as we all continue doing our best in conditions that have thrown us off our lines in a million different ways.   = = = = =   Thanks for listening!   The Team here at PYP has put together another uplifting, insightful, and inspiring show for you today.

    261: People Are Not Loyal and Loving All the Time -- Part 2

    07/05/2020 Duration: 16min

    The brutality of someone not loving us anymore or even in the first place is the fuel for some of the greatest music, art, literature, and poetry humanity has ever created. Every opera ever made has at its core the theme of betrayal and lost love. So does every play by Shakespeare. Old-style country music does too. Many music artists have become millionaires singing about suffering and cheating and lying and getting kicked around.   In this second part of exploring the chapter "People Are Not Loyal and Loving All the Time" from David Richo's book The Five Things We Cannot Change and the Happiness We Find by Embracing Them, I offer some ways of working through the times when we've been betrayed or feeling the brutal sting of having our heart broken.   Link to the song featured in today's episode.   = = = = =   Thanks for listening!   The Team here at PYP has put together another uplifting, insightful, and inspiring show for you today.

If you’ve been listening for a while, you’ve probably caught the last several episodes. Each one builds on the other but I’ve also designed them so they stand on their own.   So far I’ve covered everything changes and ends, things don’t always go according to plan, life isn’t always fair, and pain is a part of life.   This final segment is called people are not loving and loyal all the time and if I’m being honest, this chapter is arguably the meatiest so I’ve decided to break it into two separate shows starting with part 1 today. I’ll frame the content for you and then in the next episode, I’ll get into some tactics you can use to work through the times in life when you’re facing this truth.   Link to the song mentioned in today's episode   = = = = =   Thanks for listening!   The Team here at PYP has put together another uplifting, i
