EP22: Decision Making and Uncertainty in the New Paradigm

One of my favorite topics to explore from within the New Paradigm is decision making. Decision making in the Old Paradigm is all about empowerment, choice, and going after what you want. Uncertainty is something you solve for by taking action. Decision making in the New Paradigm leads us in a very different direction. Do

EP21: Your Problem isn’t Special (The one criticism I received in this run of The Little School of Big Change)

In the Old Paradigm, it looks like we have problems that need fixing. Problems that are special and unique to us; different from everyone else’s problems.

EP17: How Life is Providing Constant Feedback

Do you know what your feelings are showing you? If they provide feedback that guides us through life, do you know how to read that feedback? The Old Paradigm had it wrong. It taught us to read our feelings in a way that actually isn’t accurate; a way that has created endless confusion and complication

EP16: The Anatomy of Anxiety

In this episode, I share Sherry’s story. Sherry experienced a lot of anxiety. And a lot of anxiety and fear of her anxiety. As she began to see more about who she really is and what her thoughts and feelings really are, she was far less afraid of her  feelings. Anxiety as a chronic, habitual

EP15: How Alcohol Addiction is Changeable with Annie Grace

In this episode of Changeable I talk with Annie Grace, author of This Naked Mind. Annie used to drink a lot, and now she doesn’t. It didn’t resonate with her to label herself an alcoholic or go to meetings and talk a lot about it (although those are helpful things to do for some people).
