How to Overcome Self-Doubt - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

Let’s get real about self-doubt for  a minute. Quite frankly, it spreads. What starts out as a slight hesitation, grows into an all-out war with your mind. It’ll play tricks on you. It’s a clever emotion like that. It’s one of those emotions that thrives on your avoidance. The only way to deal with fear is to face it. To view it as your teacher instead of adversary. And the most effective way to do this is to embrace it by acknowledging it and learning from it through a determined desire to grow.

Tune in to learn:

  • How to use self-doubt as your teacher
  • How to seize opportunities instead of fear them
  • How to get in the game and win instead of hanging on the sidelines and missing out

Embracing Anxiety and Mental Health with Singer, Songwriter Ash Harris - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

I have welcomed a talented artist on today's show. We're going to chat about some of life's curves and how they helped shape the course of their life. 

I am so excited to introduce you to Ash Harris, also known as Acoustic Ash. Ash is a prolific indie singer songwriter who continues to excel within the songwriting field whether it be through political poetry or the ever-emotionally evoking and sincerity of Ash's interpretation of everyday events. These events include loss, love, money, and politics. 

Ash uses an acoustic guitar in a smoky, soulful expression as a platform for diversity and equality. Rumor has it that if you stick around to the end of this episode you will be in for a musical treat. 

And what a treat it is!

How to Deal with Creative Burnout - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

It is great to have goals and desires and a steady pulse on actions. But, it’s only great as long as you are not burning the wick on both ends. Because when you do that, that light, that energy will fizzle out.

Have you ever felt this way? Completely overwhelmed and unable to continue with projects, even those projects you absolutely love? You’re not alone. Even the most passionate of creative people can end up burning out from the pressure of always trying to keep up with an unrealistic pace.

Here's how to avoid it: 

  • Unplug
  • Find harmony in the work you do
  • Add wiggle room
  • Change your environment
  • Meditate with deep breathing

How to Make Better Decisions

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

It can be hard to make a decision. Especially important ones where the risks are great. Sometimes deciding on something is a leap of faith. You’ll never know the outcome until the consequences and benefits of your decision begin to show. What this tells me is kind of comforting in one way. Here’s why. The outcome of the decision is not as important as the act of deciding.

In today's podcast, we take a look at: 

  • Avoid paralysis by analysis
  • 3 tips to make a better decision
  • What to do if the decision fails

How to be there for yourself

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

If you could have a chat with your younger self and offer a piece of life advice that would change the destiny of your journey for the better, what would that be? What would that conversation sound like? Would you ever dare talk to her in a negative voice? With a lack of respect for who she was created to be? With distaste that she isn’t more like her friends? Of course you wouldn’t. You would treat her with the kind of wise love you gained through the years.

 
We discuss:
  • How to thrive instead of just survive
  • How to rise out of defeat
  • A new way to view adversity

The Desire to be Needed

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

Life is all about giving. About serving. About adding value. About being part of a greater purpose than your own. The desire to feel needed is universal and is healthy as long as it is served in a way that lifts you and betters this world and those who live in it. In this episode, I share a very personal revelation I just learned that has helped me to understand how to embrace the need to be needed in order to live authentically and purposefully.

 
We discuss:
  • Common misconceptions on what drives us
  • Turning wishful thinking on its side and turning to thoughtful action instead
  • Learning to discover what you truly want out of life
  • How to open up to life's unexpected surprises

When everything in the world tells you to turn around, to go back to where you feel safe, to go back to that place where you don’t have to expose yourself to discomfort, what do you do?

Do you follow the same path as everyone else and oblige? Or do you go toward that unknown anyway in hopes of finding your purpose? 

 
We discuss:
  • Why the most challenging paths are the best for our future
  • How to continue the journey when others whisper your defeat with it
  • When to ignore the naysayers and travel outside the norm
  • How to keep going when everything in you screams for your mercy to stop and go back to comfort

How to Get to Where You Want to Be

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

Most of us spend our time looking ahead. We get excited when we think about an upcoming trip, the beginning of a new television series, summer when it’s winter, a new job, or a holiday. There’s always something to look ahead at. Something that calls us to pay attention to it and be there in our minds instead of where we are. This can be dangerous. 
 
We discuss:
  • Why living in the future is dangerous to your life today
  • How you can better set yourself up for success right now
  • How to connect with yourself on an intimate honest level
  • How to confront that which challenges and scares you

How to Get in the Zone

Curves Welcome

How to get in the zone. I know a lot about this. In fact, I would bet any writer knows about this. To sit down and create a brand new world in 80,000 words, give or take, requires an extreme connection with the zone. You might be a writer, cook, accountant, doctor, no matter what you do there always comes a point where you need to zone into something with everything you have. Not getting there can be extremely frustrating.

I know how that feels. First, let me say, life tosses us curveballs and those curveballs can totally take us off track. One minute we’ve got laser precise focus on our intentions, the next second, yes second, because that’s all it takes, we are thrown so far off course we can’t even begin to recognize the landscape before us.

Many things can do this to us, job loss, a fight with someone we care about, an accident, a death, even good things like winning the lottery, getting a promotion, receiving an award, beginning a new friendship or romantic relationship. Any outlier to your set point can catapult you from where you intended to be. Good or bad.

And because life isn’t linear - if it were that would be boring - we’re forced to deal with this imbalance throughout our life. And the sooner we can recenter, the sooner we’ll get back to that incredible feeling of being in the zone.

Curves Welcome - How to Add Value to the World

We’re in the midst of challenging times. Everywhere we turn, we’re hit with news that affects us all on a deep level, some deeper than others. Many of what we are facing in the world triggers alarms within, sounding off warnings that we better buckle in for a bumpy ride or else be tossed out of our seats and land in the sea of what can only be described as incomprehensible.

Families are being torn apart by indifferences brought out by politicians, governments, and religions. What once used to be an energizing get together with those we care about has now flipped into something that brings on panic, fears, and insecurities.

The situations that bring these emotional levees to the breaking point may change along with the passing tides, but here’s what remains the same: the solutions lay not in an instruction manual that in some make believe world we’d be privy to get our hands on but in our ability to act with love and compassion in order to bridge new pathways to peace within the contexts of our own lives.

Curves Welcome - How to Manage Time Effectively

If you are the type who says yes to everyone because you don’t want to let them down or seem like you’re not being a team player, you’re going to get hurt. By hurt I mean, you’re going to burn out. It’s as simple as that. The more demands you let others toss on you, the less time you have to be the best version of yourself. You can’t add value to your family, friends, volunteer organization, or job if you’re heading for a nervous breakdown.

Tune in to learn how to take back control of your day.
