How to Feel Safe in an Unsafe World – TPS436

Humans have an ingrained need to feel safe, which is difficult in the current environment. In this episode, I offer suggestions to help you create a habit of feeling safe.


It’s pretty hard to feel safe when your world seems to be falling apart.
Feeling safe is a matter of brain training.
Safe is a feeling, not a situation.
When I became aware of not feeling safe in certain situations I decided to teach myself to feel safe.
First, have you ever felt safe?
Sit still and do nothing and notice the busyness in your mind and make a decision that you will teach yourself to feel safe.
Entrepreneurship often feels unsafe.
Our brains are wired to always be looking for danger.
It helps to assess the situation and re-perceive the situation.
Out in nature is a good place to practice feeling safe.
After you assess a situation, take a deep breath and determine what action you need to take, if any.
I did a blog post about the value of imagining a positive future. Read it here.
We will go through a difficult time as we transition out of COVID-19 into the future.
Look inside your body and notice when you feel contracted.
If you are worried about money, I offer some suggestions for getting beyond that.
You can’t make good decisions when you are worried.
No one else can help you feel safe. It’s a habit you have to develop.

Visualization: Does it Work and If Not, Why Not? – TPS434

I recently saw a short video on LinkedIn that talked about visualization and it pushed some buttons for me. In this episode, I talk about my long experience with visualizations and what you can expect if you are using them as a technique for getting what you want.


I share how I tried to use visualizations that didn’t work. Understandably.
There are times when visualizations do work.
What you are visualizing has to be in tune with your true path in life.
I have faith that I’ll be led to what I need.
Results with affirmations and visualizations will probably take longer than you want. You can’t control time.
Learning how to wait is a useful skill to develop. I share a technique for doing this.
Being in a hurry doesn’t work. You have to learn to deal with time.
I discuss trying to “manifest” money, which involves other people’s behaviors.
If you have a disappointment habit, your visualizations probably won’t work.
You have to teach yourself how to feel satisfied—and safe.
It’s important to get your feelings in the right place.
Learning to manage money and cash flow is important if you want to create more money.
I trust that whatever I’m going through is what I need to become who I’m becoming.
The act of creating your life stories is probably going to take longer than you think. So you have to learn to wait.

Marina Bruni: Energetic DNA and the Choices You Make – TPS433

Dr. Marina Bruni trains her students to simultaneously shift from right-brain to left-brain and from left-brain to right-brain strategies. A dual-qualified lawyer and coach, she is a featured speaker in the sequel to The Secret,  How Thoughts Become Things.  

As a Master of Neuro-Linguistic and Energy, Dr. Marina Bruni teaches how to activate your brain to tap into your energetic DNA, create more powerful choices, and design the outcome you want. She has shared stages with world-class speakers such as Sharon Lechter, Les Brown, and Jack Canfield to name a few.

Marina discusses what she means by “energetic DNA” and why knowing about it is important.
I ask how she defines prosperity and abundance because that is one of the main outcomes she is promoting.
Being wealthy and being rich are two different things.
Make sure that your definition of success is what you really want.
How can a person determine what they want and how can they find their place of comfort in this chaotic world?
Most people want to fit in, which makes it difficult for them to see things from a different perspective.
Each of us attracts people who can best benefit from what we have to share.
Coaches often want to work with people who mirror who they are.
I ask how each of us determines our energetic DNA and if it changes over the years.
We talk about how each of us has our own truth.
The energetic DNA is not the same as our genetic DNA.
When we make choices that are out of tune with our energetic DNA, it creates some blocks and negative patterns which make it difficult to tap into our own energetic qualities.
Marina says that the only way to discover our energetic DNA is to have Marina do a reading. She explains what happens during one of her readings.

The Value of Building a Network – TPS432

If you think you need more money, in reality, you need more people because money always comes from people. Because aloneness is one of the main emotions acted out through money. In this episode, I discuss how building a robust network can help overcome feelings of aloneness.


Creating a network can be difficult because it means a change in behaviors.
In business, you can be part of multiple networks.
A business network can allow you to create a team of other professionals that you can use with your clients.
I talk about the different networks I belong to.
It takes time to adjust to the pace of a new network you are joining
The organizations I belong to function on the give to get principles.
If you are functioning by yourself, it’s difficult to build a successful business.
I talk about the value of having a podcast and using social media to form different types of connections.
The internet provides a lot of opportunities for connection, but you have to reach out and nurture relationships.
The question is, how can you increase your network?
I talk about some of the networking opportunities during the pandemic.
Connection is one of the keys to business success.
Try different groups in order to find one that might work for you.
In this day and age, we can’t do things alone.

Bob Miglani: Embrace the Chaos – TPS430

In this episode, Bob Miglani explains how chaos is opportunity in disguise. Bob is a keynote speaker, bestselling author, and Founder of Embrace the Chaos, an Experiential Change Company. He helps people and organizations change, transform and grow. Bob was born in poverty in India and grew up in the U.S. helping his family run their successful Dairy Queen franchise for 25 years.

His journey became the subject of his Washington Post bestselling book called Embrace the Chaos, inspiring others on how to embrace change in their job, career, business, and life. Today, Bob helps teams adapt to the post-pandemic world.

Bob talks about how and why he got interested in embracing the chaos.
You can’t control the chaos, so let go of the idea of controlling it.
It’s important to learn how to deal with uncertainty. You can do this by creating some certainty for yourself.
Instead of thinking of the worst that can happen, set a goal for yourself in the future that you can focus on.
This is a good time to reinvent yourself and think about starting a business.
We talk about how people can overcome their fear of the future.
The chaos won’t go away, but you can control it better by controlling yourself.
So much of what we do is habitual. Bob talks about breaking old patterns.
Meditation can help you recognize the patterns.
We talk about letting go and trusting that something will show up.
To move forward, it helps to let go of the past.
Opportunities can only come to an open hand.
If you wait for perfection, you’ll get nowhere in life.
Chaos is opportunity in disguise.

Take Control of Your Health – TPS429

In this episode, I share my experience going through sepsis, a potentially fatal condition that I obviously survived. The experience has led me to do a lot of thinking about the frailties of our medical system and I share some of my thoughts with you.

I share the harrowing experience I went through when I thought I had COVID-19, but it turned out I had sepsis.
I’ve been thinking a lot about our medical system and its shortcomings and how people make unhealthy decisions for themselves.
We haven’t taught people that they have control of their health.
Your body is a complex machine that needs certain kinds of fuel. The wrong fuel will cause symptoms.
Each body has different needs.
We put too much faith in the opinions of medical doctors. It’s important to learn how to communicate with your body.
There are good practitioners within the allopathic system who are open and willing to try alternatives. The idea of integrative medicine that combines different systems is what makes sense to me.

If you’d like to share your thoughts with me on this topic, you can write to me at

For people who have wanted to leave their jobs, is this a good time to start a new business?
Mike asked himself, “Am I living my passion every day?”
We talk about how one finds one’s passion.
Ask what am I good at that could be the basis for a business and take one step forward at a time. Get help and input from others.
Break everything down to the simple things that you have to learn and tackle one at a time.
Engaging people in an authentic way is the basis of sales.
We talk about establishing relationships using Zoom rather than in person.
Mike has looked deeply into the issue of trust, which is more about us than the person who is trying to gain our trust.
We can develop trust in business relationships if we agree on the future goal, a common outcome, and the rules of the game.
There is a scarcity mindset happening now rather than their normal abundance mindset.
High end earners rarely give referrals to others.
We talk about approaching high-end clients.
Mike shares his personal challenge to not sound promotional when talking to people. He uses writing books to put forth his genuine desire to help others.
After you figure out your why, identify your ideal customer and interview them about themselves and what they want. Learn the language of your ideal customers.
If you don’t lead by serving, you aren’t leading.
Be patient, be serving, be compassionate.
This is one of the rare moments in history where everyone is experiencing similar emotions. This allows for more authentic discussions.
People are becoming tired of the chaos which Mike believes will lead us to a better place.
