When a business defines its values it determines what it wants its governing value system to be with customers and employees. When we set our own personal value system it’s very similar. Actively choosing the values you wish to create your life around can give you direction, definition, and clarity as you make your day-to-day choices it also creates stories you can use to teach your children with. Stay with me today for some thoughts on the process of setting your own personal values that will guide your life story creation and why you want to do it. What are your values? Do you have stories of you living your values? If you don’t, maybe those aren’t really your values. Let’s talk about it.
What does a successful life look and feel like to you? For everyone, it’s going to be a little different. For Dr. Jen Faber, my guest today, she had built a six-figure wellness practice and was a thought leader in her industry, but despite all she had created in her professional life she felt like a version of herself was trapped inside and was screaming to break free. Jen had to redefine what a successful life meant to her. She took a hard look at the fact that a good life for her was about doing what made her happy, living in a thrive mode and feeling alive every day. So, she made changes…she sold everything she owned and became a digital nomad. Stay tuned as we get a peek into someone who has taken the refrain we so often talk about – of creating your life on purpose – and let’s watch how she did it so we can learn how to do it also. Jen is the author of The 90 Day Life.
Have you ever woken up at approximately 3:00 a.m. in the morning? It’s weird. For years I would wake up between 3:00- 4:00 a.m. and often at exactly the same minute regardless of when I went to bed. This went on for so long that I started to think it was some sort of weird sign, but then I was listening to Wayne Dyer who talked about waking up at 3:00 a.m. and how he felt great inspiration at that time – how he would write so much of his acclaimed work during those early morning hours. Then one day, Jennifer Anderson stood up and announced that she had created a journal called 3:00 a.m. with God, specifically for recording the thoughts and inspirations that she feels so distinctly during this all too common phenomenon of waking up at 3:00 a.m. Tune in for our discussion and her story on how and why she created the journal, as well as a few ideas on how to recognize inspiration.

Healing is a cyclical event. We don’t do it once. We do it over and over. As I ponder on this topic I think about all the people I have interviewed – people who have lost children to hiking accidents, car accidents, suicide. People who have lost spouses and parents to murder and suicide. A woman with an eating disorder and a man whose father tried to kill him as a child in order to prove himself a prophet in God’s eyes. This is just the tip of the iceberg. The stories are raw, powerful, and illustrate people who found ways to stand up, heal, and move on to make the world better, to make their own lives better, and to rise from the ashes of pain, loss, betrayal and self-loathing. Today’s conversation is about healing, because it’s a part of every story, and the alternative is to suffer.
