SF #168 – The Rhythm of Change

SF#168

Change happens!  You can either dig in your heels, hoping against hope that things will stay the same stale-sweet way they’ve always been – or you can get into the flow of things, growing and leveling up your life as you go.  The choice, as always, is yours.

This episode, Mordant & McFall entertain and edify you as they share what it means to “embrace The Rhythm of Change” via a variety of anecdotes, shifting points of view, and even comedic voices.  Nothing is safe, not even your favorite holidays.  Listen in as McFall gleefully rants about birthdays and Halloween while Mordant waxes funly philosophical in the face of such holiday-hating hi-jinx.

There are times in all of our lives when we feel life is gunning for us.  It is these times when you can throw in the towel…or choose to use the onslaught to level up and become stronger than you were before the blows began raining down.  Every challenge is another opportunity to work on your technique and grow with the flow.  Leaning In, you look your opponent in the eye and, with a bruised-but-not-beaten smirk say, “That all you got…?” Read more »

SF #162 – Positive Aggravation

SF#162 - Positive Aggravation

Can there really be a silver lining when thing after thing after thing after thing doesn’t go your way?  What really is the benefit of that?  Sometimes we as people can be a little thick.  Sometimes we need Shakabuku: “a swift, spiritual kick to the head that alters your reality forever.”  Often, it is only those aggravating things that give us the impetus to pop out of that rut we’ve become oh-so comfortably numb in.

SF #160 – Those Voices in your Head

Sf#160 FB Wall_edited-1 (1)

“Sign, sign, everywhere a sign.…” ~Five Man Electrical Band~

What can you do when you have the chatter of differing opinions going off in your head?  Which should you listen to?  How can you tell which is right and which is wrong?  Are they signposts directing you this way or that?  And, what can you do when they are so loud you can’t discern the call of common sense?

Mordant & McFall volley back and forth about the ramifications of listening to one of the voices and making a choice – even when you’re not 100% sure it’s the best one.  Remember, if you’re not happy with the outcome, you can always go back and switch things out.  “It’s not broke until you can’t fix it.” ~Rhonni Rocks~ Read more »
