Episode 37 – Ask. The Questions to Empower Your Life

In episode 37 of Fresh Tracks author Michael Jenet shares his insights on the powerful role question asking plays in our success. We start with discovering what questions we ARE asking ourselves and then branch into how asking intentional questions can bring us closer to what we want to create in our lives. Michael shares that learning to retrain our brain to seek out positive outcome oriented-questions is a key to living a happy and successful life.

In this week’s show we discover that our brains are like computers, and it’s our job to give our logical brain an out – especially when our life is not where we want it. There IS a ‘best’ kind of question you can ask! Learning to take control of our questions and to raise our IQ (Intentional Questioning) is the secret behind those who live happier fulfilling lives and those who merely survive it. Michael provides tips we can all use to retrain our brains, get unstuck in business, and have a deeper understanding of the powerful word “if” and the role it can play in our success.

Episode 33 – 3 Steps for Manifesting Anything you Want

Episode 33 – Kelly Robbins shares with us the three keys to manifesting anything you want. Sounds simple right? Whether it’s more money, a different job or feeling differently (such as happy vs mad all the time), we ALL have the innate ability to manifest. The simple truth is no one teaches us how to manifest what we want with intention and so we struggle. Actually, what no one tells us is that we are ALWAYS manifesting – even when it’s what we don’t want. Which is crazy!

All the things in your life that you have and you don’t want you are actually manifesting. You are just unconsciously manifesting it rather than manifesting with intention. In this week’s show Kelly also shares four of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to manifesting and in embracing personal development in general. Breaking through the ‘self-help shelf’ syndrome where many of us get stuck as well as how to recognize if you are stuck and breaking through it.

Finally Kelly shares how asking the question ‘What is needed for me to make a shift today’ can be the biggest manifesting breakthrough of all.

Show Notes:

2:00 – Precautions before you begin the manifesting process
3:31 – Beware the self-help shelf syndrome
7:00 – What do you really want to manifest anyway?
9:00 – Inspired = In-Spirit means you’ve got this!
12:35 – The secret key to KNOWING that opportunity is around you
15:30 – The role rituals can play in manifesting
19:33 – You can’t meditate your way to success. When to start moving in order to manifest.

Episode 32 – Integrating Your Many Parts Is Where Creating Fresh Tracks Starts

In episode 32 of Fresh Tracks I speak with Danielle Watson, founder of The Purse Process. Danielle talks with us about the power of taking our many, oftentimes varied selves and integrating them into one that serves the world. How can we own that space in our own unique way? Danielle is a perfect example of this – she has taken her degree in archaeology and anthropology, a successful mobile yoga business owner, and the willingness to break the mold into becoming a successful coach. Danielle shares that reintegrating our many parts into one allows us to use our skills and knowledge in an unconventional way, which we call creating Fresh Tracks.

Danielle took her purse process across the country and helps people take a deep, no-nonsense view of how their actions are affecting their results and how their beliefs are guiding their actions. And yes, she does all this by going through your purse! In this week’s show Danielle also shares her adventures doing her first Ted Talk and talks about her belief that every single person has the skills and knowledge that can be used in unconventional ways. If you’re looking to create fresh tracks you probably already have all the skills and knowledge inside of you – the key is to look for a new context in which to apply them.

PP Home PageAbout Danielle Watson
Danielle Watson is a global provocateur, professional muse, choose your own adventurer, and the creator of The Purse Process®.

As an anthropologist who doesn’t like digging in the dirt, Danielle was faced with either walking away from the field she loved, or rising to the challenge of uniting the seemingly irreconcilable. In the process, she hatched something irresistible: The Purse Process®.

Danielle’s Purse Process® is a pioneering tool that applies tried and true principles of archeology in a fresh way, placing a decidedly modern and feminine spin on this dusty science. The Purse Process® is part of the unique tool kit Danielle uses as she guides women through restoring their core confidence, mentors them in achieving self-actualization, and teaches them how to turn their personal quirks into high-value professional assets.

Danielle’s uncommon mix of enthusiasm, personal strength, femininity, and vulnerability has made this unlikely anthropologist a popular, pint-sized inspiration to women everywhere.
