What is Self-Confidence?

The most important thing to remember about, self- confidence, is that we were born with it. It is our natural state.

How many of you remember your play days as kids? As a child I was always the doctor or teacher.

Boys have no fear. They would climb to the tallest point in their home, put on a cape and jump! They were Superman!

So I would define, self- confidence, as certainty. Confident and certain that you are able to handle your job, your family, social events and personal relationships.

How do you build, self-confidence?

Self-confidence, comes from building your confidence muscle. It increases with positive input from your parents, peers, loved ones and from your personal victories.

But a large percentage of, African American women,  and men suffer from a lack of, self-confidence, because of negative input from parents, peers, and loved ones.

Usually centered on their intellect, the color of their skin, their hair, their lips, their butt, the section of town they live, their lack of designer clothing, and the list goes on.

It is important to note that lack of, self-confidence, always comes from negative comments that you believe. If you don’t let these negative comments in, they will never take root and grow.

Here is a story showcasing how a lack of, self-confidence,  usually starts.

A surgeon opened his office one day and found a tall black man in the waiting room. He was six feet four inches tall and towered over the surgeon. He complained about his lip. You see his underlip protruded out from his top lip. His girlfriend told him she was ashamed to be seen in public with him because of his ugly lip; so he came to the surgeon to get it fixed.

The surgeon told him there was nothing wrong with his lip, it was just a minor protrusion. The black man insisted on getting it fixed; so the surgeon gave him an outrageous price of $1200 hoping he would go away.

He did, he said that he didn’t have that kind of money. But lo and behold, he came back the next day with a little black bag in his hand. He dumped the contents on the table. Bills poured out, his life savings; $1200 worth!

The doctor was shocked. He didn’t want to deprive the man of his life savings so he made him an offer. He agreed to do the surgery for a smaller fee on the condition that he tell his lady love that he paid $1200 for the surgery.

The operation was simple enough and one week later all the bandages came off and the man had a smaller lip he was proud of. All the surgery was done inside the lip so he had no visible scars except for a small scar inside the lip. The man was happy, he strode from the doctor’s office full of, self-confidence, A commanding figure. Tall, black and proud.

However a few weeks later he was back in the surgeon’s  office. His body seemed to have shrunk, his hands lost their strength, his voice squeaked. The doctor asked him what happened to him.

He said “the African Bug, sir. It got me and it’s killing me”

He told the doctor after he removed the bandages he went to see his lady love. She loved his lip and asked him how much he paid for the surgery.  When he told her $1200, she became enraged and cursed him saying she could have used that $1200 and accused him of hiding the money from her. She cursed him and told him he would die.

Deeply troubled and hurt, the man laid in his bed for 4 days worrying  about this curse that was going to kill him. Then running his tongue around, he discovered the horrible thing inside his mouth. He went to see a medical doctor who checked his mouth and confirmed that “the slimy African bug was stuck inside his mouth and it was indeed killing him.

The surgeon looked at this diminished and fearful man and asked him “Is it really in your mouth?”

“Yes sir,” the man said “the doctor tried to help get rid of it with liquids, pastes and potions – but nothing worked. The curse is too strong”. It’s burned inside my lip.

“Your lip?”

“Yes sir” the man said

“You didn’t say lip before”

The doctor ran his finger at the back of the man’s lip and told the disbelieving man that “the bug” was no more than scar tissue from his surgery.

The disbelieving man looked up in wonder and asked “then there is no African bug?”

The man stood up. Instantly he seemed to have regained his full height and strength. A rich smile spread over his face and his voice boomed out again. His, self-confidence, had returned.

The moral of this story is that you can’t get your, self-confidence, from other people. You have to take inventory of your strengths and weaknesses and deal with them on your own terms.

Lifted by Purpose Provides a diverse range of services including training, workshops with the intent to engage youth in conversations about mental health and learn practical strategies to cope with life stressors.

Arifah I am sure that a large population of your clients suffer from a lack of, self-confidence, Why do you think that is?

I think there are many reasons young people lack, self-confidence, I often work with young people who experienced unhappy childhoods or maybe their parents neglected them in some way or they weren’t involved much in their lives.

Also I’d say lack of, self -confidence, sometimes comes from negative input from teachers or authority figures in their lives. Sometimes teachers have a way of saying things that discourage young people.  Making them feel inadequate made and like they couldn’t be successful.  That kind of influenced how they feel about themselves and their, self-confidence, I’d also say young people who have experienced trauma or bullying from their peers can obviously influence their, self-confidence,

I believe that when young people don’t value themselves and sometimes that comes from people not validating them, they often lack, self-confidence,

So how do you make yourself, Face the Fear, but do it anyway?

Tell yourself that it is not going to kill you.

My grandmother used to say “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”

And that’s exactly what, Feeling the fear but doing it anyway does for you. It makes you stronger, it builds your, self-confidence, muscle because even if you bombed you got practice and practice also makes perfect!

Here are my steps to build your, self-confidence, muscle on public speaking or doing a presentation at work.

  1. You can start by writing out your speech word for word and just read it
  2. Then as you get more, self- confidence, and your brain recorded that you did not die, you weren’t booed off the stage, nobody laughed at you.
  3. So the next step is to write out the headlines and speak from the heart on your headlines
  4. Sooner or later you will have, self- confidence, muscles like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Tony Robbins and command the attention of the audience.

Arifah What are your steps to building the, self-confidence, muscle?

I find that it  wasn’t only their, self-confidence muscle,  that needed to be built up, it was their self-worth,  it was a whole bunch of things there was all built into the one thing.  If we were to put a label on it,  it would be that we’re not enough.

You would not believe how many people feel that they are not enough;  even the most successful

people like, Michelle Obama, in her book “Becoming Michelle Obama” felt that she wasn’t good enough.  Why did she feel that way?  Because she was black and from the south side of Chicago!

As, African American women,  we have got a lot of things that we have to deal with, we just have to believe that we are all born with purpose and with the love of God.

I have seven steps that I use to help my clients gain, self-confidence:

  1. Self-reflection – every time I meet with them, I allow them to self-reflect on their day self-reflect on things that were happening in their lives with gratitude.
  2. Acknowledgement and self-acceptance – what makes them unique because everybody is unique.
  3. Positive reinforcement – praising their effort and not obsessing over mistakes.
  4. Mastering a skill – I had the girls work on a project. They created their own YouTube video. Everyone mastered a skill in the production of the video.
  5. Communication skills – I do a lot of exercises around different forms of communication. Assertiveness,  passive, passive aggressive etc.
  6. Positive self-talk and affirmations – paying attention to their internal dialogue
  7. Pay it forward – giving back helps build, self-confidence,

How to Raise your Self-esteem by Erasing Self Doubt

The Secret to Living the Life of your Dreams

 

So What’s the secret to, living the life of your dreams? Have you wondered how someone can be born with nothing, and then live a, dream life? They can live in abject poverty, having nothing to eat, sometimes homeless and in a few years become a millionaire?

In this episode of the Transform your mind, to Transform your Life, radio show and podcast, registered social worker and mental health counselor, Ms Arifah Yusuf Mortley, share what we believe is the secret to, living the life of your dreams.  Arifah is the founder and Program Director of  Lifted by Purpose, a company that Provides a diverse range of services including workshops or programs designed to help the youth in Toronto, Canada deal with mental health issues, make positive changes in their lives after issues with the criminal justice system.  Arifah has been a registered social worker specializing in mental health for over 15 years.  She just started working with the prison system to help inmates live fulfilling lives when released from prison.

There are more, rags to riches, stories than rich kids born with trust funds.

Some Names of, Rags to Riches, people

Oprah Winfrey

Tony Robbins

Dean Graziosi

Neal Donald Walsh – he went from living homeless on the street to writing the book “Conversations with God”

Arnold schwarzenegger

Les Brown

So what do all these people have in common. They focused their attention on what they wanted and not their current circumstances.

Rags to Riches, story of O.J Simpson

O.J Simpson, rags to riches story
O.J Simpson

A young boy was born into poverty in a rundown section of San Francisco. This young boy became a fan of football legend Jim Brown, then the running back for the Cleveland Browns.  Even though this young boy was crippled by Rickets  from malnutrition, he dreamed of one day becoming a star running back like his hero Jim Brown.

Since he had no money to pay to see his hero play, he would wait outside the stadium for the maintenance crew to open up the gate in the fourth quarter and he would hobble on his crocked legs into the stadium and watch the balance of the game.

At the age of 13, he walked into an ice cream parlor one day after a 49’rs game against the Browns and came face to face with his idol, Jim Brown.

He went up to him and said “Mr Brown I Am your biggest fan.  I know every record you’ve ever set, every touch down you’ve ever scored.  Mr Brown one day I am going to break every one of your records.”

Jim Brown smiled and said “That great Kid. What’s your name?”

The young boy smiled and said “Orenthal James Simpson my friends call me O.J”

O.J Simpson did indeed go on to break all of Jim Brown’s records proving that, whatever you water will grow, and that, energy goes where attention flows.

Arifah what is your experience as a counselor with youth transforming their lives from nothing to something?

I think the story is very powerful in terms of sharing his lived experiences with adversity and having a mindset from an early age to be great. Being able to meet his mentor, the person that he looked up to was also a great moment in his life. I admire that he not only set a goal to be like his hero Jim Brown but he wanted to surpass him.

I know that’s the same even with me working with young people often when you’re in your situation sometimes you feel stuck but then if you take the moment to look at it and be like well if I feel like this is the worst situation for me the only way to go is up from here.

The best thing to do is to reflect on your situation, then look at your strengths and look at how you use those strengths.  Ask yourself how do I use those resources around me to get where I need to go.  Then you can definitely work towards transforming your life.

I have a story of a young person.  He was referred to me by another social worker. This young man was always in and out of incarceration.  I was working on a peer support project with young people sharing their lived experiences and the learning from these experiences with other young

People.  This young man was awaiting trial for a new charge and while he was working in the program, he developed a lot of skills.  He learned to tell his story and self- reflect on some of his challenges.

One day his story connected with another youth and the youth told him his story changed his life.  That made him feel like a leader. He became inspired to help more youths in the program.

He graduated from our program, got a job in trades work and when he came out of prison got a full time job at a top company.  Today he is a supervisor, making good money and supporting his family.

As a, Life coach, I know for a fact that if you keep watering your goals with your attention and have faith and perseverance, you will one day manifest them into your experience and soon you will be,  living the life of your dreams.

Arifah what are some exercises or steps you help your clients to live a, Life of their dreams ?

I focus on a strength-based assessment.  This assessment helps young people recognize their strengths or skills abilities and the things that they’re good at doing.  We made a list of things that he was good at.  Some of the things that he profited from illegally; but  skills like marketing,  figuring out demographics, leadership, acquiring a team.  The skills were transferable into other things.

Then we figured out what jobs matched the skills he was good at.  For example, he was good with his hands so we looked at construction jobs or trade jobs like plumbing.

Once we listed the jobs that he had an aptitude for, then it was just connecting him to those Resources. We looked for friends or family members who worked in that industry. We made a resource list of who he knew and where they worked.

Then we looked at what steps would he have to take to apply or what skills was needed for each job.  After this process, he became a little bit more hopeful.  He started to approach the problem with a positive mindset and a strategy.

My youth are able to find the perfect job and start, living the life of their dreams.

Here are the, Life coaching, steps to, Living the Life of Your Dreams

  1. As a Life coach I ask my clients to utilize their imagination.
  2. To withdraw their attention from the negative vibration of their current situation and dream.
  3. Our brains can’t tell the difference between real or imagined images.
  4. Launch their creation of their abundant life by launching their desires into the universe. Think of OJ Simpson.
  5. Become pure positive energy like a breath of fresh air

Everyone has something they can be grateful for even if it is feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin or being able to walk in the rain. Do you know that people in prison would give anything to feel the sun or walk in the rain. Positive vibration attracts positive things and circumstances into your experience.

Control where your awareness goes within your mind because that is where your energy flows.

Learn the fine art of concentration

Concentration is defined as holding your awareness on one thing.

Do you remember the book and movie the secret?

It was about the Law of attraction and creating vision boards and everyone in the movie had their vision come true. Everyone was living the, like of their dreams.

 

So what’s the secret to, living the life of your dreams? “Believe, have faith and persevere”

God said I know the plans I have for you. Plans to prosper you and give you hope.

The Secret to Having it All

How to Heal Your Brokenness

How to Heal Brokenness

My pastor taught a sermon on, brokenness, a few months back, and he made the analogy of a, broken, vase.  He said that a, broken, or cracked vase cannot hold any content, everything leaks out. We must heal our, brokenness if we are going to hold love, self-esteem, self-worth, or confidence.

Certified Life coach, Myrna Young and registered social worker, Arifah Yusaf discuss, How to Heal your Brokenness,

The LORD is near to the, broken hearted, And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34:18

 

In this blog and podcast here are some of the mental health topics we will be discussing every week.  We want to discuss real life issues and struggles of the, minority woman:

Brokenness
Brokenness

Lets start with, How to Heal your Brokenness,

My pastor taught a sermon on, brokenness, a few months back, and he made the analogy of a, broken, vase.  He said that a, broken, or cracked vase cannot hold any content, everything leaks out.  That means that if you are, broken hearted,

  • you cannot hold love,
  • you cannot hold appreciation,
  • you cannot hold compliments,
  • you are incapable of receiving and holding anything.

So it is very important for us to find our cracks and mend them.  As, minority women, most of us have experienced some, brokenness, in our lives.

Here are the top 3 reasons for, Brokenness:

  1. Devalued and rejected by others
  2. Abandoned by our parents
  3. Feelings of not being good enough because we have lack.

 How do we Heal, brokenness?

I know in our practice of social work and in psychology, a lot of clinical professionals, look at the research study around ACES which is our first childhood experiences.

That study basically states that childhood experiences before the age of 18, whether that be witnessing abuse or being abused themselves, living in poverty or just going through traumatic events; Those experiences impact their, brokenness, as they grow up into adulthood.  It may impact how they maneuver through success or how they view themselves as  failures.

These experience are also linked to risky health behaviors, chronic health conditions, low life potential and even early death.

Transform your Mind TuneIn Radio
TuneIn Radio

Myrna Young, Life Coach, I agree that risky behaviors from, brokenness, usually means an absence of self-love and that can definitely lead to early death.

I am going to niche down in our conversation today to address women of color and, minority women, because that’s who we are.

As women we can be, broken, both in our childhood and by narcissistic men in our adult lives, who have rejected us or devalued us.

Our, brokenness, becomes compared with the, broken hearted.   Also when we experience, brokenness, as children those experiences can leads us to get into unhealthy relationships.    Healing our, brokenness,  prevents us from repeating this pattern of unhealthy relationships that would leave us, broken hearted.

It takes work to heal our cracks.  The first step in coaching is to identify how you became, broken, and then replace your subconscious programming with a new program similar to writing over a CD disk.

How to heal the, Broken Hearted

  1. Acknowledge that you are, broken
  2. Follow the pain – pay attention to where it hurts
  3. Trust outside eyes. Have close trusted friends to tell you what they see. This can also be a, life coach, who can uncover your blind spots.
  4. Allow love to mold you like the potter molds clay.
  5. Pray and meditate on the fruits of the spirit, peace, joy, love

Here is a story on, How we become broken, and the process of healing.

Arifah – In my years of practice, I obviously had a lot of opportunities to engage young people who have expressed feeling, broken, based on their lived experiences or their adverse childhood experiences.  As we talked about earlier in the segment, those experiences impact how they view themselves,  how they show up in relationships, in their place within society or their environments.

I recall speaking with this young woman who shared witnessing domestic abuse at home.  She actually found her mother’s body when she came home from school one day. She was then placed into the foster care system.  At 18 years old having nowhere to go, she was placed into a shelter.  I remember her telling me that she really struggled with her identity and her self-esteem.  She harbored resentment towards her family because nobody had come to claim her in Foster care which magnified her, brokenness.

In her late teens she became pregnant and wanted to connect with her family; because she was starting to feel isolated and she wanted her child to know more about her family history. But she faced rejection once more. She decided that it was all up to her, to make a difference in her child’s life.

She then stared setting small goals for herself and accomplishing them.  That started building her self-esteem until she recovered from her, brokenness. She became more engaged in her community and connected with other single mothers. She stopped blaming others or comparing herself to others and continued her healing process.

She decided to develop a plan with a network of positive healthy people. Eventually  she stopped defining herself as, broken, because she realized that she really could make a difference in the life of her child. It was all up to her, no one else.  Like the analogy of the broken vase, she couldn’t hold self-esteem, or self-worth, as a broken vessel, everything leaked out. When she became whole everything stayed in.  That is, how to heal your brokenness,

How to Find your Passion, Purpose and Freedom as a Mompreneur

Are you a stay at home mom? Why not become a, mompreneur?  Allison Lancaster, lifestyle blogger and, mompreneur, shares how to start and grow your business along with your babies.

Today on the, Transform your Mind, to Transform your Life radio show and podcast. I interview Allison Lancaster. Allison is a mom, wife and six-figure business owner. She started her business in 2016 after giving birth to her first son, who spent 2 weeks in the NICU. She has since grown not only a lifestyle blogger; but has become a trusted online business manager for entrepreneurs who are seeking to find purpose, passion & freedom as a, mompreneur. Allison’s passion project is teaching other moms how to become work at home moms so that they can grow their business along with their babies.

Allison How did you go about deciding to be a Mompreneur?

The entire time I was pregnant with my son, I had decided to go back to work. We had a daycare picked out and everything.  But I think going through the NICU experience and  just becoming a new mom, that’s a huge life change.  Whether you’re an NICU mom or not.  I can remember one day that just sticks out in my mind, my son was about two months old, my maternity leave was dwindling down and I could just remember sitting looking at my baby and just crying.  I didn’t want to leave him to go back to work.

Myrna: So you fell in love and couldn’t bear to part with your baby!

I’ve always had kind of an entrepreneurial spirit.  I had my own business as a wedding planner and always had a side hustle. I have always wanted to have my own business. So when I decided to be a, mompreneur,  I started just researching like a mad person on Google for ideas.  I started out by buying things from Walmart on clearance and then trying to sell them on Amazon, which some people make great business out of;  but I just could not do it.

So I considered what I am good at.  I clarified my strengths. Writing has always been a passion of mine, so I decided I’ll just start a, mompreneur, blog.

I really didn’t think that it would be any sort of a career.  It was just something I used as an outlet.

Allison Lancaster, mompreneur

How did you build your Business as a, Mompreneur?

The, NICU experience, was really kind of a traumatic birth experience; so I decided to download by writing about it and maybe helping other NICU moms.

The, NICU experience,  is a different kind of experience from a regular birth. I mean you don’t get to hold your baby for days, possibly weeks and you’re separated from him or her and you have to watch them being fed by tubes. It is both a traumatic and terrifying experience.

Other, NICU moms,  started sharing their experience and it was powerful.. My blog was very quickly picked up and syndicated by a large parenting website.

I joined some blogging groups on Facebook and I found this amazing community of bloggers who were very receptive and helpful.

Then I started promoting my blog on Pinterest, just kind of pinning it just to see what would happen.  My content very quickly gained traction had I had some viral pins.

Then friends started to reach out to me and there they were like, hey you’re doing really well on Pinterest.  You’re being syndicated in all of these places.  What are you doing and how can you help us?

So that’s really kind of where the online business management side of my business was born.

How did you Grow your, Mompreneur, Business along with your Babies?

I took on one client and then they referred me and here we are some 50 or more clients later.

Myrna:  Wow yeah I have a blog ( this one!) and my blog did not take off!  I have never been syndicated and I have yet to figure out what Pinterest does!  So you’re doing great. Why do you thing you were so successful so quickly?

It has come full circle.  Initially I would have said it was the marketing pieces of it and the website building and things like that. But late last year I noticed a shift.  People wanted to hear about the nuts and bolts of running a business and that is what I blogged about.

Today I kind of talk about everything, I call it a lifestyle blog. I share a lot of my grandmother’s recipes.  I’m a southern girl and we like our food.  I share a lot of parenting kind of tips and advice too. I have 2 kids now.  A 3 year old and a 9 month old.  As they’re growing, things that I’m learning and discovering, I share.

How to Find your Passion, Purpose and Freedom as a, Mompreneur

Mompreneurs, are women entrepreneurs who just happens to be moms as well. A lot of, mompreneurs, started their  businesses because they wanted the freedom to stay at home with their babies, or the freedom to travel or whatever kind of freedom they are looking for.

I have started very recently a free course for, mompreneurs,  who want to become virtual Assistants.  Mompreneurs, who want to stay home with their babies and don’t necessarily want to sell a product or create a product. I want to teach them how they can start a business offering  virtual assistant services.  We all have marketable skills whether that’s accounting, bookkeeping or marketing. I kind of coach them through the process.

Most, mompreneurs, don’t even remember what their purpose was in starting their business. They just wanted to see the light at the end of the tunnel. So I do a lot of business strategizing with clients. I ask them what is your five-year plan for your business?

Why did you start your business, was it to stay at home with your babies or was it to travel?

Then I ask them. Are you seeing those things in your business right now?  If not why?

I teach, mompreneurs, to find their passion and purpose by doing what they love.

I think it’s different for every person; but there’s just a lot of questions and kind of deep-diving and soul-searching that you have to do.  We have to do it consistently, not just in the beginning or in the middle of your business.  It’s a daily thing. Ask yourself,  how does this task fit into my bigger plan and my bigger purpose?

How to Create and Produce Podcasts that Entertain, Empower and Engage Audiences

Ginni Saraswati, award winning journalist shares How to, Create and Produce Podcasts, that Entertain, Empower and Engage Audiences.

  • Ginni is an award-winning journalist and host of the Ginni Show, Comedy & Connectivity. In this episode Ginni shares how podcasters can, create and produce, entertaining shows by understanding what they are good at.  How podcasters can use their strengths to engage and entertain audiences.

Excerpt from the interview

Ginni, I was reading in your bio that you’ve got a great radio story. It is an inspiration to all those radio personalities out there that are toiling for no pay!

My story well it is an interesting one, because I was in my second year in university studying creative art.  There’s was a radio station in Melbourne, the city I grew up in Australia.  They had a course going for people who wanted to learn everything about radio.  The station was joy 94.9 which was Australia’s first and only LGBT radio station, and I think only one of three in the world at that time.  Anyway I applied for the course and I got accepted.

That’s when my life changed. I was more looking to do producer type stuff.  I didn’t want to literally get behind the microphone.  I knew a couple of things would change if I were to get behind the microphone of an LGBT radio station.  I was completely afraid that this would automatically out me to everyone. I had not yet come out that I was gay.

How did you Transition from radio to, Creating and Producing podcasts?

I knew that radio and now podcasting is an intimate space, because people generally listen to radio or podcasts on their own.  It’s not something that you go “hey it’s Friday night let’s go to my place and listen to a podcast!”  Podcast listeners are listening to a radio or an external device and it’s within a meter away from them or it’s right in their ears. So it’s a very intimate space,  that’s why it’s so impactful and why podcasting has become so popular.

How to, Create and Produce Podcasts, that you can monetize?

There is a lot of money in podcasting. Advertisers are getting a lot back from Ads because of the intimacy of the medium.

  • 45 Percent of Podcast Listeners Have a Household Income of $75,000 or More

Podcast listeners are a relatively affluent group. Compared to America as a whole, monthly podcast listeners are 29 percent more likely to have a HHI of $75,000 or more. Combined with the large ratio of podcast listeners in the coveted 25 to 54 demographic, this is why advertisers are starting to seek out podcast sponsorship opportunities.

  • 85 Percent of Podcast Listeners Have Attended College

Podcast listeners are also an educated group, as they are nearly 20 percent more likely to have attended college at some point, compared to the U.S. population as a whole. And among people who have secured a four-year college degree, the difference is even more striking, with podcast listeners 40 percent more likely to have done so.

The perfect medium for advertisers. Podcasts are very educational, it’s like you know the audio version of YouTube! Anything you want to learn, there’s a podcast that can teach you whatever you want to learn.

How to, Create and Produce podcasts, with Radio experience

I found inspiration in the part of your story about working for 10 years on the radio for no pay!

Yes, when I first got into morning radio, we started at 6:00 am, so I got up at 4:30 am, no matter what I did the night before.  That’s how much I loved radio. It did take a good 10 years of hustle, getting up early, staying back late.  The first time I got on the radio, I got the graveyard shift from 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., which meant I was getting to bed like 2:30 am or 3:00 am, and then on the reverse, when I got the morning show, I had to get up at 4:30 a.m. to make sure I was there for 6.00 am.  It did take a lot of hard work; but you know no pain, no gain.  Let’s remember nothing comes free.  I don’t think you can do anything great that you don’t build up.  It does take a lot of work and consistency to build anything great.

I worked for free for 10 years; but you know it was the most rewarding experience in my life. I got to meet and interview amazing people and make strong connections.

Mel Robbins tells the story as well about working on radio for free and you almost losing her house because she was not making any money and her husband’s business wasn’t doing well.  They almost lost everything.  She tells a powerful story in her book the “Five-second Rule”

She now works for CNN and she’s blown up but it all started with working for free on the radio!

How to, create and produce your own podcast.

On my radio show we started to re-purpose some episodes into podcasts. So I got the idea to start my own podcast because one, the attention was going to podcasts and secondly, I wanted the freedom to talk about what I wanted to talk about.  On the radio you’re regulated, you’re in kind of a regulated industry; you can’t mention or talk about certain things; so there’s no freedom in in radio.

Not so for a podcast. You can talk about anything within reason on a podcast. You can curse, talk about sex or whatever you want. That’s how Genni Media my podcast production company was born. Now  my company Ginni Media is a boutique Podcast Production Company serving the vision of entrepreneurs, celebrities and influential organizations around the world. Specializing in podcast production and content re-purposing, they provide a concierge-style service to ensure your voice is literally being heard where it needs to be.

That’s awesome, if you are reading this and working hard at something and not seeing any fruit, just keep on working and building.  Keep on sowing seeds at some point in time it’s going to grow into a forest.

I was listening to Joel Osteen this morning and he it can take a year, it can take ten years, or it can even take 30 years! You have to have faith.

How did you have the courage to introduce your sexuality on your show even though it was a criminalized act in your home country of Sri Lanka?

Well I kind of lived a bit of a fragmented life back then. My family even though then I was on an a Gay radio station, weren’t exactly aware that I Gay. My mother never questioned me about the content of the show. They didn’t find out until about six or seven years later.  I was doing a TV segment,  I was like about twenty three years old. My sister knew and certain cousins of mine knew,  I didn’t really feel the need to come out because I don’t think it’s necessarily something that needs to be announced, because if you are in a heterosexual relationship, you don’t sit your parents down and tell them. So I was doing this TV segment in Australia on channel 31 at 10:00 p.m. on a Monday night. I didn’t think anyone in my family would be watching a Gay game show program at 10.00 pm on a Monday.  But apparently my auntie and uncle were watching and they heard me say I am Ginni and I am Gay!

Can Medical Intuitive Readings Talk to your Spirit?

Christine Lang, Medical Intuitive Readings

Medical intuitive readings, connect with, spirit, to helps people find the find cause of their symptoms, so they can heal, thrive and become stress free.

In this episode of the Transform your Mind podcast, Coach Myrna interviews, Christine Lang, Medical intuitive and Psychic.  Christine interacts with, spirit, through, medical intuitive readings, to understand what your spirit is telling you through symptoms.

Introduction Medical Intuitive Readings

Christine How did you Start, medical intuitive readings,  and hearing from Spirit coming from a law background?

I know it’s not your typical path for a lawyer to take that’s for sure.  When I was in law School, I started developing allergies, not asthma, but upper respiratory, runny nose, sneezing, constantly eyes watering,  and it was before the days of allergy medications that were non drowsiness,  so my two options back in those days were to take Benadryl and then drink diet coke all day to stay awake in my law school classes.

So as soon as I graduated law school, I embarked on this study to figure out a cure for my allergies. I made the connection between higher stress levels and worsening  allergy symptoms.

To deal with my stress levels, I started meditating, doing yoga and Tai Chi to slow down my mind, and then I learned to do some energy healing from a Yoga practitioner.

Before long, I was offering my friends energy treatments. I started to notice that before I gave these treatments, I would know things about their physical symptoms that I shouldn’t have known.  I was hearing a voice. After the third time hearing this voice,  I went upstairs to my room and sat down on my meditation cushion and said “Who am I talking to?” and my spirit said “Welcome Home!  this is who you came here to be.”

Hearing from the Spirit as a, Psychic

I just started crying.  She said I’m going to start teaching you and she started showing me how the body works. She said “this is what the body feels like when there’s blood pressure medication in it,  this is what the kidneys feel like when diabetes is starting.”

She just started teaching me the connection between how we internalize our stress and create weak areas in the body, and how our, spirit, uses our body like a giant answering machine, leaving us messages all the time. That was the start of my, medical intuitive readings, practice.

She taught me how to raise my energy level even higher and hear the other person’s, spirit,  so now when I sit in a, medical intuitive readings, session, I hear my, spirit, and then I also hear the other person’s, spirit.

Your, spirit, is your soul, your essence, your divine essence. Some people call it your higher self. Whatever you call it, it’s been with you from the beginning and knows your whole story.

Transform your Mind Stitcher

Explain the, spirit,  body and how it communicates with symptoms in a, medical intuitive reading, session?

Our, spirit, is communicating with us constantly, it’s a constant stream of communication.  Your, spirits’, first preference on how she wants to communicate with you is through your feelings.

We get feelings and feedback from our, spirit, all day long; but in our culture we were taught not to pay attention to our feelings. From kindergarten through college we are taught to suppress our feelings and only rely on our mind and what’s logical.

So your, spirit, will send you these feelings and emotions which we usually push down and ignore. Then our, spirit, start speaking to us through our body because that’s something that will get our attention. Still a lot of people ignore, that is where I come in. In my, medical intuitive readings, I communicate directly with, spirit, and receive the message for my client.

What are some common symptoms that you find in your, medical intuitive readings, that our, spirit,  uses to get our attention?

I would say the most common symptom I see is people with stomach issues; Acid Reflux or other digestive issues.  Your stomach areas is where we tend to store stress that relates to how you see yourself and how you think other people see you.  So when we’re having trouble with how we think we’re being perceived, we’re likely to have insecurities that leads to get some sort of digestive upset stomach.

People say things like, ever since I lost my job I  had food allergies and an upset stomach.  I had acid reflux and GERD.  They are having trouble digesting life and so those are the symptoms that kind of alert you that it’s time to get quiet and still and do some meditation or do some journaling. Something’s to help you make peace with where you are now, so that you can get your power back. Your sense of empowerment to move forward.

Another common symptom is  throat issues.  For example every time they get sick they lose their voice, they’re always clearing their throat, have a lot of post nasal trap,  or have laryngitis a lot.  These symptoms are the spirit sending the message of fear. Fear of speaking their truth, either because when they were young they were you know told to be quiet all the time or they got in trouble if they said the wrong thing.  It could be that they’re in a romantic relationship or a situation at work where if they speak their truth,  they get punished. I pick up these things in my, medical intuitive readings,

Have you been FUMBLING IN THE DARK to find the RIGHT SOLUTION for a chronic health condition?

Do you go back and forth between western and traditional medicine … managing “symptoms,” but never finding relief from the condition that keeps you from experiencing your fullest health potential?

Well, the answer is simple. On a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual level there is something going on inside of you. An energetic imbalance may be manifesting on the physical level … or, a physical issue like toxicity is causing you mental and emotional stress.

For example: if you are chronically emotionally stressed about your job, a relationshop or something else, the stress shuts off your body’s healing response and holds you in a ‘fight or flight response.’ When locked in a ‘fight or flight response’ the following symptoms often occur:

  • Abdominal weight gain & difficulty losing weight
  • Reduced muscle mass with increased fat storage
  • Premature aging
  • Weak immune system with slow wound healing
  • Difficulty coping with stress, feeling overwhelmed
  • Anxiety, depression
  • Low energy, especially between 2-4pm
  • Difficulty sleeping or non-restful sleep
  • Poor memory, difficulty concentrating

How Nutritional Supplements Help you Achieve Optimum Health

Dr Stephen Lewis Nutritional Supplements
Dr Stephen Lewis Nutritional Supplements

Dr Stephen Lewis says everything begins in the gut.  We have to use, nutritional supplements,  because about 85% of all the minerals in the soil in America are depleted.

In this episode of the Health is Wealth series.  I interview Dr Stephen Lewis. Dr Lewis is the founder of Green Wisdom Health, a company that helps clients achieve optimum health by utilizing extensive, but low cost lab work.

Tell us your journey Dr Lewis to becoming the founder of  Green Wisdom Health.

My daddy died when he was 53 years old and I was 15 years old. It was devastating. I felt that it was something that now I could fix real well with, nutritional supplements, even though according to the FDA, nutritional supplements, does not cure anything!

But today I have been able to put off Dementia in my mother for 25-30 years through the use of, nutritional supplements, We prevented her bones from becoming brittle and easily fractured.  You couldn’t make her fracture a bone at her age because she takes,  nutritional supplements,  My mother was almost 96 years old when she died because of, nutritional supplements,

As a Doctor, I was always more into nutrition than most common practice.  We started doing low-cost lab work and was able to determine a whole lot of what’s was going on in the body.

Nutritional supplements for optimum health
Nutritional supplements for optimum health

For example. My daddy died at 53, nutritional supplements, might have allowed him to live longer.  He had ulcerative colitis or irritable bowel syndrome.  Nutritional supplements, do an incredible job at stopping the leaky gut.

Everything begins in the gut.  I tell people they have to use, nutritional supplements,  because about 85% of all the minerals in the soil in America are depleted.  There is even a Senate document that states that  our foods are devoid of almost all nutrients and that was in 1936! Imagine what it will be today.

There’s no nutrients in the soil.  People who spend a lot of money for organic is wasting their money. Organic is an improvement only.

How the Thyroid processes, nutritional supplements

If the Thyroid is  not working correctly, nothing in the body is going to work like it should.

The Thyroid is incredibly important, it has a lot to do with whether you’re stressed, have anxiety or depression. It has a lot to do with how your hormones are doing.  It has a lot to do with your digestion or lack of digestion.  How your heart beats etc.

So in my book “The Thyroid Sniper” I list a pretty well-rounded list of the different vitamins and the different minerals and amino acids that can be found in certain, nutritional supplements, that gives you optimum health.

 

Transform your Mind podcast, nutritional supplements

How the proper, nutritional supplements, help us return to optimal health

The proper, nutritional supplements, help us return to optimum health because there is no way we can eat enough to get enough of the nutrients we need in our body, for example just  magnesium alone. There’s no way to get enough magnesium out of your diet. Even our government says that we’re about 94% deficient in magnesium.  But magnesium can help depression, because it facilitates over 300 different enzyme reactions and it also is good for the heart.  It helps many people with arrhythmia, it helps lower blood pressure. You can’t get enough of it out of your diet.

You may also have a B12 deficiency and most, nutritional supplements,  out there will have B12 in it; but it will be the wrong kind so  your body cannot convert it.  Our bodies also don’t make enough digestive enzymes.  I can tell you, if your proteins are low and if your alkaline phosphate is low,  and if your globulin is low or high,  then that points to gastro intestinal inflammation.  Keep in mind every disease has a root cause and the GI tract is always part of the equation.  If you fix your digestion with digestive enzymes and, nutritional supplements, then you can break your food down and not create, Leaky Gut.

Probiotics as a, nutritional supplement

Probiotics is the new big study.  We have about ten times more microorganisms than we have cells in our body, so taking probiotics as a, nutritional supplement is a must.  Generally people will start feeling better mentally, they will have more energy, they’ll have more restful sleep, they’ll say, I don’t know why but my depression went away. That is the power of taking probiotics as a, nutritional supplement.

I’ve been taking, nutritional supplements, for a very long time and yeah I’ve got a pharmacy! but I’ve heard people say things like, nutritional supplements, are a waste of time because you are just going to pee them out.  All you are doing is having very expensive urine!

Your body takes what it needs and excretes the rest, that is why I do very inexpensive lab work for my clients to find out what their body is missing and then I will give them the, nutritional supplements, their body needs so as not to have expensive urine.

Most nutritional experts will agree on five, nutritional supplements, that everybody needs:

  • You need a good multivitamin,
  • a good probiotic,
  • you need a digestive enzyme,
  • you need fish oil
  • and you need fiber.

I don’t really agree with the fiber, if you eat enough really good vegetables you don’t need fiber as a, nutritional supplement, but I think vitamin D should be thrown in there.  It’s incredibly important and you cannot convert enough sunlight to make enough vitamin D.

How Ketogenic Diet Helps Reverse Diabetes

Thom King, Founder of the Steviva brands and author of the book “Guy Gone Keto” explains the, Ketogenic Diet, and how it helps reverse diabetes, alleviates Alzheimer’s and dementia.

 

Your body, the human body has the ability to burn two types of fuel.  Your body can burn glucose or your body can burn, ketones,.  So in the absence of glucose in your body, that’s when the switch goes on and you start to burn, ketones.  

 

Transform Your Mind iHeart Radio
iHeart Radio

I’m sure a lot of people are like what the heck are, ketones,?  Ketones, are actually metabolized fat. Your liver produces ketones by metabolizing fat; so basically if you are eating a high-fat diet, lots of butter, coconut oil, avocados etc.  your  liver is actually metabolizing those fats and turning them into, ketones,  that is a, ketogenic diet,

 

Transform your Mind TuneIn Radio
TuneIn Radio

Your body operates very efficiently on, ketones, you have these little cells in your body called mitochondria, that probably sounds very fancy; but think of mitochondria as the little batteries that powers your cells.  They’re found in every living thing on the face of the planet and the more you feed your mitochondria, the more energy you have.  If the mitochondria live on, ketones, then you want more ketones in your diet. In the, ketogenic diet, you’re able to produce more energy from your mitochondria and this elevates brain function.

 

Transform your Mind Spotify Podcast

I would say that the biggest benefit of the, ketogenic diet, is elevated brain function and cognitive function.

 

The, ketogenic diet, not only reverses the Diabetes epidemic; but it also  alleviates Alzheimer’s and dementia. People on the, ketogenic diet, also says it helps them with brain fog as well.

 

Soundcloud Transform your mind podcast

Coconut oil is one of the fats recommended in the, ketogenic diet, people consider coconut oil sort of an exogenous, ketone, but that’s not 100% true.  Exogenous means that you’re taking it from the outside of your body and putting it into your body; but it’s by consuming coconut oil that your body or your liver actually metabolizes that coconut oil.  The liver then converts that over to, ketones, and so you’ll feel an instant rush of energy.

 The, Ketogenic Diet, and Sweeteners.

 The main benefit of, ketones, and the, ketonic diet,  is reducing our intake of sugar. We want to reduce glucose and carbohydrates in our blood.

 One of the ways to do this is to not use sugar, but use an alternative. Thom King is the founder of the Steviva Brands.

 The, ketogenic diet,  benefit from healthy sweeteners like Steviva because your body can’t turn it into glucose.

 Sponsored AD

Do you ever think that you have too much stuff?  Maybe two or three of the same item but don’t have the one thing you need or want?  Or maybe you spend hours getting ready to host a garage sale only to have most of the things taken to charity anyway.  Perhaps you have a service you’d like to offer in exchange for another service that you need or maybe just looking for one specific hard-to-find item like sports memorabilia or auto parts.  Well BarterUpOnline.com can help you solve all of these problems.  Whether you have unwanted items, looking for specific items or simply willing to trade services, https://barteruponline.com/ is for you.  The process is easy come to our website sign up for a monthly account which will cost you $2 dollars a month billed once a month or sign up for an annual account, which will cost you $1 dollar a month Billed once a year.  So visit our website today, no money no problem, only trades.

The, ketogenic diet, comprises of  70% fat, 20% protein and 10% carbohydrates.  The carbohydrates should come from cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, brussels sprouts etc.; not sweeteners like sugar.

Anything that grows above the ground is essentially good to eat in the, ketogenic diet, if it grows under the ground, it is probably going to be too high on the glycemic index and you don’t want to eat it.

ketogenic Diet Transform your mind podcast
ketogenic Diet

 

One the biggest principles in the, ketogenic diet,  is going to be avoiding sugar, because sugar will take your body out of ketosis. You want to deprive your body of sugar, so it forces your body to burn fat for energy, and that is where alternative sweeteners come in.  

Some of the sweeteners that we use would be Stevia, some of them are monk fruit which comes from a natural fruit from Southeast Asia.  We also use Organic Erythritol is a natural sweetener found in fruits and fermented foods, derived from fermented corn.  It’s about 70 percent of sweeter than sugar; but doesn’t have any calories to speak of and no impact on blood sugar.

We work with a lot of different sweeteners but probably the one that I’m most excited about right now is called Keto Sweet Plus, it is a blend of Monk fruit and Stevia and you can use this just like you would sugar.  So if you’re baking and you need something to rise, it will do that.  It also engages in fermentation.  It also participates in what’s called the my yard effect!  That is the interaction of proteins and fats which creates caramelization.  So when you’re barbecuing and you slather on a bunch of barbecue sauce you’ll notice that you get like the hard shell.  You know it gets crispier than is actually that is. That is a function of the artifact, and so this particular sweetener works well in baking and condiments and it’s  been my go-to sweetener over the past couple years and works well with the, ketogenic diet,

If you head over to www.steviva.com you will find hundreds of recipes, you adopt them as your own.  All of them are part of the, ketogenic diet, with low carb recipes.

Guy Gone Keto and the, Ketogenic Diet,

 Guy Gone Keto I would say it’s a guide book. It is my journal from eating bad foods and being 40 lbs overweight to becoming healthy again.  I was carrying 40 pounds of extra weight, getting  brain fog, my blood pressure was 190 over 99 and at that point it’s like I need to make a change.

So I just started journaling about it and a year later I had a book, and months after that I had a publisher.

 I do have some recipes and meal plans for the, ketogenic diet, but I would say that the premise of the book is more the steps or even the tools that you will need to make a lifestyle change.  

 I started reading your book and it reminded me of Mel Robbins book the “5 Sec Rule” In the beginning of her book she shares her story of what her life looked like before she found the “5 sec rule” your book Guy Gone Keto, you started off in the same way sharing your story.  It makes the readers connect with you more.

Transform your Business Life: Dress for Success

Dressing for Success

 

How to, dress for success, we have all heard the saying don’t dress for the position you have now; but the position you want to get. 

Since I was a little girl I could pick out the women who had money. They would be dressed in suits or what I believed to be expensive clothing, with their hair and make up perfectly done. When they passed me, they smelled like heaven. But looking back, I realized that to, dress for success, did not mean that you had to be wealthy and have a closet full of expensive clothing. For all I knew these women that I admired, could have had only one suit in their closet or one, dress for success, frock.  It is not the quantity of your wardrobe, but the quality.

Not only does it show you how to pleasure your woman; but at the beginning of the movie, it shows you what the closet of a  rich successful business man looks like.  Dozens of dark color suits, dozens of white shirts and dozens of ties. Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Google have all tried to change the dress code to tea shirt and jeans; but take a look at the Senate or President Trump or Wall Street. The business suit is still the, dress of success, 

I have always seen movies with the men being fitted for a suit; but I have always bought my man a suit from off the rack! Apparently that is bad! 

 

A carefully fitted suit is worth it’s weight in gold.

Even if it is off the rack it shouldn’t fit like a sack!

Get it altered to fit. It does not matter how much the suit cost; but it must fit!

That is the secret to looking successful. That is the way to, dress for success, 

 

The consensus is that a business suit should be single breasted and either dark blue or dark grey.   

Heading back to Christian Grey in 50 shades of Grey. Notice that all his shirts were white. I have never seen President Barack Obama, in nothing other than a white shirt. Your white shirt should be one hundred percent cotton with button down collars and always long sleeves. Short sleeves are out! Complete the look with a pair of black loafers, well shined and with a new looking heel. If your heal wears down to one side, get it replaced at the shoe maker. 

 

Here is the formula for, dressing for success Women,

 As from my intro I have been trying to copy Sandra Bullock’s look in the proposal for some time now.  That is my, dress for success, look. If you haven’t seen the movie, she rocked the black pencil skirt with a white shirt and pumps with elegant heels.  

Find a look that flatters your figure. As women we come in all sizes. I don’t have time to get into the best look if you are busty, hippy or made to wear clothes like a super model. The formula to, dress for success, for women is to invest in a few classic, simple suits in dark colors.  The same as the men, grey or blue. I still have the suit jacket I purchased from my first big pay check as a salesperson, 20 years ago. It was a grey wool blend double breasted skirt suit. I paid $700 for it from my $30,000 pay check. I felt successful so I went out and started, dressing for success,

 

Nice simple fitted dresses also work wonders, especially if paired with a blazer and some fashionable jewelry. The great thing is that you can loose the blazer for the after work parties and still be, dressed for success,. 

As women we like to flaunt our sexually, but avoid wearing bright colors, tight pants, mini skirts, plunging necklines or blue jeans. It may get you in the door short term; but it be paid for with long term loss, because men will hit on you, since they will feel that is what you are selling. Then a whole can of worms is opened up that doesn’t end well.

How to Use the Universal, Law of Action, for Success in Life

Coach Myrna

On Today’s episode “5 Minutes with Coach Myrna”, I teach How to Use the Universal, Law of Action, to achieve Success in Life

In the first episode of 5 mins with coach Myrna, I shared the First Universal Law “The Law of Divine Oneness” If you missed that episode please download. I am teaching on the 12 Universal Laws because they are the blue print for a life by design. They are the rules of the game.

Life is the only job that we don’t get a manual for and most of us leave this body as clueless as when we were born.

Today I want to teach on the:

The second Universal Law the, Law of Action,

Successful people are future oriented so if you are not taking action towards a vision or goal, you will remain stagnant.

Movement creates energy.

Newton First Law states – A body in motion stays in motion. If you, take action, towards your goals you will attain them. If you take, MASSIVE action, towards your goals you will attain them much much faster.

1. Because we are spiritual beings having a human experience, your higher self, which is your source, GOD, gives you guidance in the form of thought or dreams. When you act on that guidance it opens the communication for more guidance. Acting on the guidance you get from your higher self will propel you in the direction of your purpose. One way to gauge if you are moving in the direction of your purpose is your emotions. If you feel excited and happy to do the action then you are aligned. If you don’t feel good then it is not aligned to your goals or purpose and it is not from your spiritual guide. It is said that we have five voices in our head. You have to be able figure out who is speaking to you when you get direction.

If you don’t know what action to take.
Ask yourself, What does successful people do?
Ask yourself again, What do I have to become to do something I have not done before? Taking action usually means stretching yourself to do something you have not done before. The, Law of Action, means taking action in the direction of your goals.

Playing to your strengths will not stretch you.

You have to go beyond your comfort zone and stretch yourself like a rubber band!

Would you like to know what a Life Coach does? A Life Coach prepares you your main goal in life by getting you to your purpose and then holding you accountable to make it happen.

Strengths can be categorized in two columns. The first column are the ones you are born with and the other, the ones you cultivated.

For example Warren Buffet tells the story that he was deathly afraid of public speaking, but he was born with the ability to do math. At a very young age he had the ability to take apart financial statements and understand the true value of a company; but he had zero ability as a speaker. So that was the strength he cultivated. He took action, he joined Toastmasters. The, Law of Action, at work.

Tony Robbins teaches that not only should take action; but you should take, MASSIVE action.

Most coaches will tell their clients, if you have a goal take some action towards that goal. If you want a Mercedes Benz then order a brochure or go test drive it. If you want to enroll in higher education, then go visit the campus and get information; but, MASSIVE action, is totally different. MASSIVE action, is quitting your job and starting your own business. MASSIVE action is Ed Sheeran getting on a plane and coming to America looking for a record deal, with no money in his pocket and sleeping on the subway until he found work! The, Law of Action, worked again, Ed became the biggest male pop-star on the planet!

Conclusion, take action, take, massive action, let the, Law of Action, propel you towards your goals.
