216: Friday Story

Thank God it's Friday

FRIDAY STORY

What is the Friday story? It’s the universal freedom cry of people who trade their time for money each week from Monday to Friday.

The expression TGIF makes people smile and celebrate time away from responsibility and, often, boredom.

But, is the Friday story something to smile about? It can be. And, it can also be a trap that keeps people stuck in unfulfilling work and mediocrity.

This episode explores the TGIF mindset. It aims to raise your awareness about the story you tell yourself that defines your work, your goals, and your dreams.

The TGIF story has three components:

  • The Friday feeling
  • The Friday habit
  • The Friday story

This brief podcast challenges you to be brutally honest when you answer the question, “Do I love the work I do?

215: Your Worst Enemy

YOUR WORST ENEMY

Have you ever heard the expression, you are your worst enemy? You’ve heard it and probably have said it.

This episode explores that expression that many of us regard as innocent. We take a close look at how those words impact our lives, and, often, steal our happiness.

We also look at how “You are your worst enemy” is a narrative built on other narratives.

The goal of this episode is to raise your awareness about the stories that are all too familiar to us that we tell ourselves daily, stories that are actually deadly.

Specifically, the episode focuses on three distinct narrative and areas of our lives:

  • Achievement and the narratives of self sabotage that undermine it
  • Personal relationships and defensive narratives that prevent intimacy and growth
  • Financial stories that keep us safe and well within our comfort zone

I offer you the challenge to question all the stories that keep you safe and comfortable, and ultimately prevent true growth and happiness.

Today, we live in a world where powerful narratives of division and hate are leading to death and destruction.

One of the most powerful contemporary stories is the myth of white supremacy.

Do you understand and acknowledge story power in your life?
