Show Notes  A handful of times in the past we have so enjoyed our time with a guest that we have said, “We must do a follow up to this conversation.” Well today is the very first time we were able to schedule such a follow up in back-to-back weeks.

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Our guest today, Ellie Gould, is a specialist in making the kinds of changes in your life that are both valuable and lasting. In fact, she has created a process to help each of us understand who we truly want to be, how we might get there, and then, most importantly, how we can STAY there. Ellie Gould makes a most compelling argument for the use of “feeling” our way into success in life. In our left-brained “thinking-oriented” world, our feelings are often regarded as an enemy or roadblock to success. Instead, Ellie advocates the Power of Your Emotions in her...

#264 Rand Sperry: Did I Live, Love, and Matter? show art #264 Rand Sperry: Did I Live, Love, and Matter?

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today is our very first show for the New Year of 2023.  I thought, for today, I would start the new year chatting with my friend Rand Sperry about personal development expert Brendon Burchard’s take on what it means to live a life of purpose and to leave a legacy that matters. Brendon suggests something like this: “At the end of our lives we will all ask, in one way or another: Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter?” It seems to me, that if we approach life with those three questions in mind, we will be able to say, “Yes. I have lived a good life.”

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  On our show with Lindsay Davis today we explore the very core of human existence. I think we can best sum it up with the words of psychologist Phil Sutherland, “As human beings, before we are anything else, we are a “burning ball of desire.” Lindsay and I probe the ROLE of burning desire in every single move we make. We ARE desire. We express desire. Without desire we are barely more than automatons. But with desire we are hungry. We are fruitful. And we can find extraordinary pleasure and productivity in life. And why should our lives NOT be pleasurable and productive?...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   In his latest weekly blog found in , Terry Hershey explores the words of theologian/philosopher Howard Thurman by delving into Thurman’s question, “What makes you come alive?” Thurman’s actual words are, “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” I liked the topic so much I invited Terry on the show to discuss it. So. The question is: What makes YOU come alive? Several things make us feel alive, but rarely do we address the question...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  We have a most interesting and insightful show today. Our uniquely special guest is Ann Sidney, Miss World 1964. Her new book, ‘Surviving Miss World’ is a searingly honest account of how winning the 1964 Miss World Beauty Pageant radically altered the scope of her life. Born to a working-class family in England, at barely 20, Ann Sidney’s overnight fame reveals a life during the ‘swinging sixties’ few of us could ever dream of. Her win led Bob Hope to invite Ann to join his USO tour, entertaining ‘our troops’ by traveling to Korea, Guam, the Philippines, and...

Show Notes 

Guess what? Our good friend Terry Hershey has a new book titled “This Is the Life.” I just received a copy a couple days ago and have read through it. It is really good. I think the subtitle explains much about the content: The full title reads, “This Is the Life: Mindfulness, Finding Grace and the Power of the Present Moment.”

I know much has been written on mindfulness and living in the present, but Terry indeed offers a fresh perspective on the subject. For me, it is NOT so much a “how to” book and is it a “why to” book. I found the book a most refreshing read attempting to restore us from our frenetic, hectic and chaotic daily lives.

It is filled with stories, anecdotes, and references to masters, especially in the spiritual world. And by spiritual I am not talking about religion but about otherworldliness. Personally I a much attracted to the notion of finding grace in the power of the present moment.

But most of us that reside in cities and suburbs are inundated with a driving need to accomplish, “to add value, ”to be forward thinking, and then, unfortunately, to raise our children to follow the same lifestyle.

But I am giving away too much of our content for discussion today. For those few listeners that are not familiar with Terry Hershey he is a most popular public speaker—in fact I consider Terry to be one the most enjoyable and impactful pubic speakers I have ever heard. He is also, obviously, an author of more than a dozen books, and landscape architect and probably most importantly a gardener (of a 2 acre garden) in which he cares for diligently and with great grace and devotion.
