How to Reach the Next Stage of Your Personal Evolution

podcast Dec 01, 2020


Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Every next level of life will demand a different you -- Leonardo DiCaprio. 

And this is exactly what is happening in my life, and in the lives of all of my clients.  As we continue to step into this new version of ourselves, it is not all sunshine and rainbows.  In fact, it feels like the more I am living the life that I set out to create, the more my Inner Critic is going berserk.  And this is why I love supporting people to get to the next level of THEIR lives… because it DEMANDS a different you to get yourself there. 

You can’t get to the next level of your life with the same mind that got you to where you are now.  It’s going to take dissolving parts of yourself that you have been dragging around with you for your whole life, so that you can make the space for the DIFFERENT you to emerge. 

And that is exactly the work that I continue to do in my own life.  I use my...

The Hidden Side of Judgement

podcast Nov 17, 2020


Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners.  Today I want to talk about what judgment really IS.  Whether it is judgment of ourselves or others, it all comes from the same place.  Right now as I am recording this podcast, it is right before the 2020 election.  And there is so much judgment out there.  So much ‘I am right, you are wrong” and so much anger!  I am not going to talk about what’s going on in the world right now.  I want to talk about how YOU can return yourself to what is essentially all of our natural states, which is happiness and success, in any area of your life.  And accessing that natural state is possible, even in the uncertain world we are living in right now.  See, life will always be messy.  Life was messy before, life will be messy again.  I am in the business of working hard to boil things down to their essence and teach the universal principles that apply to ALL...

What Constitutes a Life Well Lived?

podcast Nov 03, 2020

Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners!  Today I would like to talk about what constitutes a life well lived, because I think there are a lot of people who are confused about what it really means-- they think once they reach their goals, that is when life will be good.  I speak with so many people who are  unhappy either because they have hopes, dreams and ambitions that they have all but given up on, or because they are still not where they think they “should’ be.   And the sad thing is, it’s not due to any fault of their own. It is certainly not because of stupidity, or laziness, or negative thinking, or a deprived childhood, or a chemical imbalance in the brain. It is simply because they do not know that they are separate from their Inner Critic, and therefore are fused with their automatic thoughts and mistaking them for the truth.   Those automatic thoughts that make them feel inadequate, unfulfilled, thinking that...

We Are All Puppies!

podcast Oct 06, 2020

Hey Dethroners!  Ok so we are now 7 months into the pandemic and the issues we were dealing with pre-pandemic have multiplied exponentially. 

We are going to be ok once we learn what we’re supposed to learn from all of this--but we don’t know that yet. And not knowing is killing our logical brain. Because our Inner Critic mind wants predictability and wants to make sure that we are never uncomfortable or in any emotional pain moving forward.  

So what does our Inner Critic focus on? Well, it focuses on all the potential dangers and all the things that aren’t right with ourselves, in our family, in the world, and we think we’re not yet who we’re supposed to be, and this isn’t the way life is supposed to be. But did you ever think about where we got these ideas for who we’re supposed to be and the lives we’re supposed to be living? Why are we always thinking that there is something wrong with who we are now?

What can Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s life can teach us about confidence

podcast Oct 02, 2020


Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners!  This week, Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away at 87 years old.  And I have been doing a lot of thinking about not just the legacy that she leaves with all of her incredible accomplishments in the fight against gender discrimination, and the rights of minorities and the LGBTQ community, but also the legacy for all women to step into their power and own their ambition.  

Now, I doubt there was ever a time in RBG’s career when she thought about quitting, or that she didn’t believe in herself and her potential. But I wonder if she, like so many women, ever struggled with fear, doubt, uncertainty, ambivalence, and the insurmountable challenge of balancing motherhood and her career. I have been thinking about how women like RBG are able to have a profound impact on our world because of their ability to override their Inner Critic mind.  Because I suspect that even an extraordinary...

How To Make Your Life Work

podcast Sep 22, 2020


Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

Hey Dethroners! Why is it that for most of us, even when our lives are great, we find reasons to be unhappy? And yes, you can feel relieved to know that this is not just you that feels this!  

This is all of us. And that is because our Inner Critic mind is hard-wired to anticipate the worst outcome. That is rooted in our primitive survival mechanism, which is how our Inner Critic mind was created.  

At 2 years old, you might have figured out that the way to get what you wanted was to scream and yell, and try to power trip your parents. At 2 years old, that is the only power that we have. As we get older, we try to figure out how we can get what we want. Beginning at about 3 or 4 years old, we’re trying to figure out how we get other people, beginning with our parents, to love and value us.  And these early beliefs create lifelong patterns.  

As you got older, you began to find other...
