How to Powerfully Move From Crisis to Opportunity

I’m here today unfiltered to share a lesson I learned from my mom about a situation that we have been going through as a family. I recently wrote about my brother-in-law passing away from stage 4 lung cancer. This has been a very traumatic event for our family. It was very sudden, his diagnosis and passing. It’s been causing me to reevaluate some things in my own life.

This has been such a painful process that felt like I was going through a moment of crisis in my life. As a coach, words are important to me. What words create are a philosophy that I always talk to my clients about and that I try to live myself. I spoke to my mom recently about how I’ve been feeling so painful and filled with a lot of emotions. And these were her words of advice.

How to Live a Fully Engaged Life with Thomas M. Sterner

Today’s topic is ‘How to Live a Fully Engaged Life’. To help me talk about this, I spoke with Tom Sterner. If you guys have been listening to this show for a while, you know that I’ve interviewed Tom before. He’s the author of The Practicing Mind, which is all about developing focus and discipline in your life. It is one of my all-time favorite books. In fact, it was so great that I had to reach out and make friends with Tom. Yeah, I didn’t know him before and I read the book and I was like, “I’ve got to know this guy!”

He now has a new book called Fully Engaged, drawn from the most common questions that people had after reading The Practicing Mind. It’s about how to apply the concepts from The Practicing Mind in your life. Tom has tons of wisdom and insight to share!

Tips for Financing Your Reinvention with Jean Chatzky

One of the biggest questions that we all ask ourselves before undergoing a reinvention is “How will I afford it?” Having a financial plan will make it easier for you to focus on yourself and accomplish your reinvention with ease.

With that in mind, I am thrilled to have Jean Chatzky, financial editor of NBC News, on The LiftOff Project this week to discuss how learning to manage money and increase financial literacy is an integral part of your journey to reinvention.

Jean is a New York Times best-selling author of eight books, the latest of which is “Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security,” but reaching this level of success was not smooth sailing for her.  When she first left college she decided to forgo a writing job to pursue a career in retail that offered a salary twice the size.  After buying a car and moving to a different state for a job she didn’t love, Jean quickly learned the importance of following your passions.

Now, Jean’s mistake was a little bit easier to fix as a young woman with no assets, mortgage or children but her journey helped her create a game plan that anyone can follow to make their reinvention without risking your financial safety net.

Secrets of Successful Wealth-Building with Linda P. Jones

When Linda P. Jones was just 10 years old, she read the classic Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill and set a childhood goal that she wanted to build wealth. Not surprisingly she went on to a career in finance, while also independently pursuing an investment strategy that earned her $2 million by the age of 39.

Though she’d reached her goal and was enjoying the fruits of what she’d built, the early death of her beloved husband caused Linda to take stock and reinvent her life. She now works as a wealth mentor, empowering others to reach independent financial freedom.

One of the big insights Linda shared in today’s episode is that when you aren’t wealthy and set wealth-centered goals, sometimes it’s difficult to shift your mindset from “That’s something I’d like, if it happens someday” to “I am going to be a millionaire.” Your brain takes over, accusing you of speaking too soon, and doesn’t allow you to develop the supportive thought patterns you need to achieve wealth.

Linda’s genius strategy for overcoming this mental resistance is sneaky; it’s something I called “The Trojan Horse Method of Affirmations.” It tricks your brain into accepting those wealthy statements, letting them seep into your consciousness and shifting your mindset. Linda’s method? Your affirmations should be a mixture of true statements and “not yet true” statements.

Here’s the example she gave:

[intro]1.[/intro] I’m a multimillionaire.
[intro]2.[/intro] My name is Pamela.
[intro]3.[/intro] Money flows to me easily and effortlessly.
[intro]4.[/intro] I live in Florida.

Now, before your mind can chime in with a “Not so fast, you’re not a multimillionaire!”, you follow quickly with a true statement that it can’t argue with (“Well, my name IS Pamela”). This lowers the barriers of resistance in your brain, allowing you to build new neural pathways around fresh ideas and shift unconscious beliefs about money that you may have been carrying since childhood. You can then move forward each day with your mind as a partner in creating wealth rather than a roadblock.

Linda shared a ton of other sensational tips during our chat including the right language to use to frame your goals, strategies for avoiding the fear and feelings of unworthiness that stop you, and how to use a fun app to amp up the power of your affirmations.

When Life Throws a Curveball

It has been some kind of week. I had a whole episode planned for you called A Reliable Method for Knowing What You Want. It’s a really great topic drawn from “law two” in my book, The Ten of Laws of Career Reinvention, about tuning into your body, and how your intellect needs to come in. It was all great and good. Then life threw me a really big curve ball. Actually, it’s a curve ball that’s been going on for a few weeks, but some things really started heating up with an ill family member, and I needed to switch gears. I’m here with you today, unfiltered, talking to you about the lessons that I’ve learned in this type of moment that we often face in our lives, where things just get thrown at us, and we’re like, “Oh my God, how do I deal?”

A Real-Life Reinvention Story with special guest Markus Grindel

[intro]This week,[/intro] I am sharing with you an interview, a real-life reinvention story that I had about a month ago with Markus Grindel. Now, Markus is an international business executive and a serial re-inventor. In fact, Markus and I worked together. We’re longtime friends, and he likes to say that he was my first reinvention client, which I find highly amusing, but it’s true that we did engineer a reinvention for him. He has reinvented himself several times since.

He has a really interesting story, because as a high-powered executive, he actually left his career to stay home with his child, which is highly unusual for a man. I know you guys are going to love to hear his story. He’s now in the midst of yet another reinvention. Lots of really great advice, so let’s tune in and hear what he has to say.

Update from Coach Pamela

[intro]I am so thrilled to be back.[/intro] I missed you all. Although I have to say it was lovely to be able to take a break over the month of August. It wasn’t really a break from work, it was just a break from creating podcast episodes. The opportunity of taking that kind of break is that allowed me to take a step back, look at what I was doing, how I’d created this and to provide a space for reinvention.

You all know I teach that reinvention as a tool for evolving. It’s a practical life skill. It’s not a one and done kind of process. But it’s a tool that you pull out when you are wanting to create something more. One of the big questions of reinvention is, “How do I know if I’m going to like where I’m headed?”

If you’re thinking about moving towards getting a new job or some other kind of major change or shift that you’re contemplating, one of the big issues is: “I’m going to do all this work, then I’m going to get there and I’m not going to like it.” Reinvention as a practical skill allows you to do two things. One, it allows you to test. Second, it allows you to do is tweak.

Testing means that you have to test your beliefs, you have to test your assumptions about whether or not you’re going to enjoy where you’re headed. That involves talking to natives if you’re looking for a job or looking at how other people are doing things. You are testing your ideas, testing your beliefs. The key to all of this is allowing yourself to tweak your results because it’s not possible to 100% know whether or not something’s going to be a hit until we’re there. That’s why often in career reinvention we suggest volunteering because that gives you a feel for what it’s going to be like without making the final permanent commitment. Then you can say, “Hey, this is a great fit for me” or it’s not.

In this case, the case of this podcast, I took the first half of this year to create something and test it in a way that I thought would be great for me. What this hiatus allowed me to do was to take a step back and look at how I’ve been doing it and see was there a way to tweak what I was doing?

The answer to that question is, “Yes! There is!” We are on a reinvention journey and the podcast is changing. I promise you that this is going to be a good thing because this change is born from tuning into what is the biggest and best for me.

ENCORE: Smart Strategies for Building Genuine Confidence

[intro]I recently had a coaching call with a client[/intro] who was talking about going to a meeting that felt incredible because it showcased her talents.

She felt like she was in her groove and in her flow and things just came really, really simply. She walked out feeling incredibly powerful. Because she had that sense of ease, it felt very fun for her. She brought it up in her coaching session because she also had this thought: “Maybe something was wrong because it was so easy.”

We started delving into it because she realized that she had this belief that because it was easy, it wasn’t the right thing. I thought about that because, in truth, we really do have this idea that things that come easily to us are somehow wrong. You might find that thought lurking in the back of your mind as well…

ENCORE: How to Exploit the Genuine Power of Jealousy

[intro]In a recent coaching session, a client admitted to me that she was feeling pangs of jealousy…[/intro]
when she looked at certain things in her friends’ lives and in some of her work colleagues’ lives.

She felt a little bit like, “Oh, I don’t want to admit this to you.” But then I said to her, “You know, I have gone through the same thing!”

Sometimes when we’re out looking at things in the world, whether it be with our friends or what’s in the media, we’re being triggered by all the stuff we see and we can say, “Gosh, I wish I had that,” or “I feel jealous or envious of people having things.”

When we’re experiencing those feelings of jealousy it triggers guilt within us because we think, “I shouldn’t be feeling that way; I should be a better person than getting into these feelings of jealousy.”

But there’s a really important use for jealousy that I’ve found….

ENCORE: How to Accomplish Your Goals Without Relying on Willpower

In this episode’s ‘Tales From the Coaching Front’ segment, I tackle the question ‘Can you accomplish your goals in life without relying on willpower?’  To do this, I look at one of my clients struggles with weight loss and self-control.  In order to help, I tried to change her mentality on willpower and make it more than just an inability to control her urges.

You see willpower is actually a depletable resource, and so it can be very difficult to sustain a change in behavior, especially if you’re going to kick yourself every time you eat a piece of cheesecake that you shouldn’t have.  Instead, I’ll show you how to approach these moments as a set of choices that when viewed in this way make it much easier to stay on track and accomplish your goals.

And during our “Ask Coach Pamela” segment, we hear from Nikki who is wondering if she should give up a full-time job that provides her financial stability for the opportunity to fulfill a long held dream of pursuing a career in dance.  Even if you don’t want to make this kind of radical change, the questions that Nikki has to ask herself are important exercises everyone should review before switching careers.
