  • Finding your Balance and Inner Peace

    02/11/2019 Duración: 14min

    Inner peace depends largely on choice. It's the decisions we constantly have, and many of our habits determine how much peace we experience in our daily lives. It's this realization that prompted these words by Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart  “Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.” --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/mindtraps/message

  • Trusting the process when the path is not clear

    19/09/2019 Duración: 01min

    Life and the goals you want to accomplish during your journey are never linear. If you want to reach your desired destination, you need to surrender to the process, no matter how difficult it is. Life and comfort don’t co-exist. Though we refuse to admit it and allow the curated life displayed on social media to influence our decision making or outlook, nothing is permanent, and at any moment life could throw you a curveball that could change the game up without warning.  When you trust the process, you accept and have faith in the unknown. And yes, you step outside of your bubble and allow life to guide you along your journey. for more episodes: https://radiopublic.com/mind-traps-WeybE2 Find me on Twitter! @Musolek --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/mindtraps/message

    In this episode, I dive into dreams and how to stay determined, motivated and on-track to pursue your dreams, even in the face of discouragement from the people around.  Now we cannot eliminate discouraging sentiment, it's just the nature of life so it's to be expected. But we can learn now to manage it so as not to let if keep us from pursuing our dreams and living a life that makes us happy, even if we fail along the way. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/mindtraps/message

  • Episode 4: How travel or living abroad helps you grow

    10/03/2019 Duración: 11min

    Moving to a foreign city can be unsettling, especially the thought of leaving your family and friends behind. Not everyone can hack it because living abroad means letting go of the comforts you're used to, especially if you feel your country is the best in everything. But for those of us that shed this mindset, living abroad or travel can be especially rewarding, even when you don’t know anyone and starting over is inevitable.  Some things living abroad has taught me Less stuff = less stress The best things in life aren't things, it's experiences that are more valuable You are more open to different ways of life by experiencing different cultures with a more open mind, you'll learn the value of living differently Roll with it man - You quickly learn that you can handle most situations life throws at you. There really aren’t a lot of things worth getting upset about. This doesn't mean you have to accept everything as it is. Choose your battles.  Thais have a popular saying: Sabai,Sabai whi

  • Episode 2: Imposter Syndrome

    09/02/2019 Duración: 04min

    A recently published research paper flips the assumed gender dynamic of imposter syndrome on its head.  But let's ignore the science and speak about the reality each of us face with this emotion.  What are your coping mechanisms you find effective to deal with feelings of imposter syndrome? Do you often avoid challenges because it’s so uncomfortable to try something you’re not great at or is unfamiliar? --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/mindtraps/message
