What Is Home Inspection Stress?

Join Chad and Ashley Taylor, owners of Pisgah Home Inspections, for a chat about why we get so stressed out about home inspections and how to perceive them from a less stressful perspective!

More about Chad and Ashley:

Chad’s journey is nothing short of impressive! With 20 years of experience in residential home building and a passion for custom carpentry, he’s a seasoned expert who knows homes inside and out. Chad has even had the honor of helping construct stunning Bobby McAlpine homes alongside his mentor, Jeff Beale in Montgomery, Alabama.

Chad’s secret sauce? He has an exceptional understanding of how homes should be built, combined with some time off in between inspections to shred on his mountain bike. His keen judgment allows him to distinguish between critical issues and unique quirks in your prospective home, and deliver that information to his client in an unalarming way. With Chad as your inspector, you’re not just getting an inspection—you’re getting a wealth of construction knowledge and experienced judgment!

Ashley is the Heart and Soul of Pisgah Home Inspections. She brings the perfect blend of warmth and positivity to Pisgah Home Inspections. While Chad is out in the field ensuring no detail is overlooked, Ashley is the friendly voice and organizational whiz behind the scenes, ensuring everything runs smoothly.

Together, they make the ultimate team.

Understanding the Identity Factor Is the Key to Moving Forward – TPS482

Just like everything else, your self-concept is a habit that affects all of your decisions. Protecting your identity often keeps you from moving forward. In this episode, I talk about The Identity Factor and how you can move past the restraints put on you as you try to keep yourself safe.

Highlights

Definition of The Identity Factor: A mechanism that kicks in – subconsciously – whenever you try to make a significant internal change that will affect your self-concept and your position in the world. There’s a fear that if you make these changes, it will lead to your being alone and alienated.
I talk about the behavioral effects of The Identity Factor.
Common among successful people is that they never feel satisfied. So learning to be satisfied is a threat to who they perceive themselves to be – even though they understand that learning to be satisfied could make them more comfortable.
We are programmed to always want more, which keeps us unsatisfied.
If you have a habit of feeling alone, learning to feel connected can be a threat to your identity.
It is perfectly natural to resist major changes to how you have been. It’s easier for younger people than for older people.
Are you willing to look at who you have been so you can decide who you want to be?
It takes courage to let people know who you really are.
For your life to change, you have to change.
The more adept you are at change, the better your life will be – even though those periods of change can be uncomfortable.
To become naturally prosperous – where you really feel rich – you need to look at many internal aspects of yourself and be willing to make changes.
Each person has a unique combination of things they have to work on to become more comfortable.
To be a full human being, we have to learn how to live in society and we get to choose how we want to do that and who we want to connect to.
Your external world is just a reflection of what’s going on inside of you.

Q & A on Sustainable Happiness

Great questions on cortisol, adrenaline, sex, bonding and 14 Days to Sustainable Happiness, with reader Kristen Helmstetter.

THE HAPPY BRAIN PODCAST helps you blaze new trails to your dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphin. My guests are pioneers in retraining the inner mammal. I love learning from them! Listen in and subscribe so you can blaze new trails to your happy chemicals too.

Your host, Loretta Breuning is founder of the Inner Mammal Institute and author of “Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain your brain to boost your serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphin levels.”

Life is more peaceful and satisfying when you understand your inner mammal. Good feelings come from brain chemicals we’ve inherited from earlier mammals. They evolved to do a job, not to make you feel good all the time. When you know the job each chemical does in the state of nature, your ups and downs make sense. More important, you can re-wire yourself to enjoy more of them in sustainable ways.

It’s not easy, alas. Our brain is designed to release happy chemicals when you take steps that promote survival. But our brain defines survival in a quirky way: it cares about the survival of your genes and it relies on neural pathways built in youth. To make things even harder, our brain habituates to the rewards it has so you always have to do more to get more happy chemicals.

We are not born with survival skills like our animal ancestors. Each newborn human wires itself from its own early experience. Happy chemicals are like paving on your neural pathways, wiring you to repeat behaviors that made you feel good before. This is why our urgent motivations don’t make sense to our verbal brain. It’s not easy being mammal!

When you know how your brain works, you can find healthier ways to enjoy happy chemicals and relieve unhappy chemicals. You can build new neural pathways by feeding your brain new experiences. But you have to design the new experiences carefully and repeat them— a lot!

The Inner Mammal Institute has free resources to help you make peace with your inner mammal: videos, blogs, infographics, and podcasts. Dr. Breuning’s many books illuminate the big picture and help you plot your course. You can feel good in new ways, no matter where you are right now. Get the details at InnerMammalInstitute.org.
