Podcast: 43 Fate Favors the Bold with Richard Paul Evans

Podcast: 43 Fate Favors the Bold with Richard Paul Evans

This is a story worth hearing.

 

You’ve likely heard of Richard’s bestselling book, The Christmas Box. But the story behind how it came to be, how Richard became the incredibly successful author that he is, and how he has followed his purpose is incredible.

When Richard Paul Evans wrote the #1 global best-seller, The Christmas Box, he never intended on becoming an internationally known author. Three years later, this quiet, simple story of parental love and the true meaning of Christmas made history when it became simultaneously the #1 hardcover and paperback book in the nation.

Since then, more than 8 million copies of The Christmas Box have been printed. Seven of Evans’s books were produced into television movies and have starred such well-known actors as Maureen O’Hara, Rob Lowe, Christopher Lloyd, James Earl Jones, Naomi Watts and Academy award winners Vanessa Redgrave and Ellen Burstyn. He has since written more than 35 consecutive New York Times bestsellers and is one of the few authors in history to have hit both the fiction and non-fiction bestseller lists.  There are currently more than 30 million copies of his books in print.

During the fall of 1998, Evans founded The Christmas Box International, an organization devoted to maintaining emergency shelters and providing services and resources for abused, neglected or homeless children, teens and young adults. To date, more than 85,000 children have been served by the Christmas Box House facilities and programs.

 

 
In this conversation we talk about what is possible when we choose to be the best at what we do, when we take the chance, and when we let ourselves be bold.

 

“If you want to be a bestselling author, there’s an empty seat, go take it.”

Podcast: EP 39 Personality Isn’t Permanent with Dr. Ben Hardy

Podcast: EP 39 Personality Isn’t Permanent with Dr. Ben Hardy

Have you ever wondered if you can’t change?

 

I am bringing back one of my earliest podcast guests for a second episode because he just wrote a new book and it is so good. If you remember Episode 4 about willpower, you’ll know that Benjamin Hardy is someone worth listening to.

Dr. Benjamin Hardy is an organizational psychologist and bestselling author of Willpower Doesn’t Work and Personality Isn’t Permanent.

His blogs have been read by over 100 million people and are featured on Harvard Business ReviewNew York Times, Forbes, Fortune, CNBC, Cheddar, and many others. He is a regular contributor to Inc. and Psychology Today and from 2015-2018, he was the #1 writer in the world on Medium.com.

 
 
 
He and his wife Lauren adopted three children through the foster system in February 2018 and, one month later, Lauren became pregnant with twins, who were born in December of 2018. They live in Orlando.
 
 
In this conversation we dive deep into the myths versus truths about how much our personality impacts who we are and what we do. Ben teaches us wisdom about how to make powerful choices about our future self, how to become who we want to be, and how to view our personality as an asset instead of a limitation.

 

“A person’s view of their own future is the strongest indicator of who they are.”

Podcast: EP 38 You Will Perform to Your Self Esteem

I’m sharing one of my favorite success tips.

 

I learned this in one of my earliest sales jobs and it’s served me well through the years. I’m sharing some of the best habits I know to build your self-esteem, because your self-esteem is a direct reflection of your ability to perform. If you’ve been thinking about how to build your self-confidence (in your work, relationships, health, or anything), I hope these ideas will serve you.

Podcast: EP 35 The Permission + Power of Play

I’ve got an unusual invitation for you.

 

If you know me well, you know I have an alter ego my friends call “Summer Tiff.” It’s the person I become in the summer months, when play becomes a big priority. This came about from a wake up call I had about four years ago, when I realized my priorities were not aligned with my joy.

In this episode, I’m inviting you to play more. To let yourself have fun. To see it as a business and relationship strategy for success. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

“Everything is energy.”

Podcast: EP 32 When the Weeds Return

I’m revisiting an old lesson.

 

If you’ve ever judged yourself for repeating the same mistakes, struggling with the same insecurities, or not progressing in a perfectly linear path, this episode is for you. I’ve been having the same conversation with many friends and clients lately about why we tend to judge ourselves in how we progress. It’s easy to notice yourself struggling with something you thought you had “mastered” and assume you failed.

I’m here to remind you that progress is a process, a practice, and it requires constant revisiting of the things we have already become aware of. Just like weeding a garden, self-improvement and healing are a constant practice. And we’re all revisiting our same lessons again and again, in new ways.

“It doesn’t mean you’re a lost cause, it means you’re a progressionary human.”
