Emma Ferrick embodies all things this podcast stands for. She's a young mother who survived a dangerous domestic violence relationship and found the support and internal strength to reach for a better life when many in her condition would be paralyzed by fear. Her reality was a catalyst for extreme growth and pursuit of career goals that liberated her from her day job, allowing her to be with her daughter while growing her business.

In September of 2020, a reported 865K women left the workforce in the US. Many of these women are caregivers and moms who felt they had no choice but to step away from work to keep their children's education on track and keep their family intact. In this episode, I share some stats, helpful resources I've found for you to gain support, learn skills, and gain hope for starting over with the flexibility to care for yourself and your family.

With all that's swirling in the world around us, it's easy to wonder how people can get away with evil and horrible things and come out seemingly smelling like a rose. Or at the least retaining their position, their wealth, etc. with seemingly little impact.

Audacious Ideas book review of Using Neutral Thinking to Thrive. Form Mental Conditioning expert Trevor Moawads audible book, "It Takes What it Takes"

All of us have been through so much these last few months with quarantine life, protests, racial inequality, and all the powerful feelings behind centuries of injustice coming to the fore. Some of us can urge you to "be positive" or "adopt a positive mindset" but I know it's not that simple. 

 

When things have been truly challenging in my life those phrases have felt feel empty or even triggering more self-criticism. 

 

Maybe you've had some of the following thoughts.

 

"Why can't I just be positive?"

 

"How come my mind always goes back to all the possible the negative outcomes??"

 

"I've been saying these positive affirmations for weeks but I just don't believe them!!"

 

"I suck at this. Eff those spirit junkies, they can choke on their positivity!!"

 

I get it.

 

And I know many of you are in that space where it feels dark, borderline hopeless, and all this positive talk is like putting lipstick on a pig.

 

So, with that in mind, I'm sharing the concept of Neutral Thinking. 

 

In this episode, I share what it means and a bit about Trevor Moawad, Mental Conditioning expert, and top coach to pro elite athletes. In 2017 Trevor was named the “Sports World's Best Brain Trainer” by Sports Illustrated. 

 

This guy knows what he's talking about. He's done the research, the experimentation, and has solid examples of why this works.

 

I recently read Trevor's new book "It Takes What It Takes" and I'm reviewing his book along with two amazing interviews you'll appreciate from the Ed Mylett Show and Impact Theory - both on YouTube.

 

BIGGEST TAKEAWAYS

 

#1- NEGATIVE thoughts are 4-7Xs more powerful than positive thoughts.

 

#2- NEGATIVE thoughts SPOKEN are 40-70Xs more powerful and more likely to come to fruition.

 

#3- Simply AVOIDING voicing or speaking negatively can do you a world of good even if you're not speaking positively. 

 

Let me restate that last one.

 

Simply AVOIDING voicing or speaking negatively can do you a world of good even if you're NOT speaking positively. 

 

Mic drop.

 

This is a short episode. So you'll consider this without me droning on and maybe you'll be inspired to adopt this strategy or get his book to learn more.

 

Either way, I hope you find something helpful here. This concept has truly helped me stay out of the mental muck.

 

Enjoy!

Steph
