4 Steps to Reframe Failure and Tips to Develop New Habits  - Seize the Day with Natalie Miller-Snell

4 Steps to Reframe Failure and Tips to Develop New Habits  - Seize the Day with Natalie Miller-Snell

April 2, 2020

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell.

 

In todays podcast I discuss steps to help us reframe failure and offer tips to help develop new habits.

 

When we perceive things have failed, it’s important to address the cause and not the ‘symptom’.  Conversely, it is also important to review and celebrate when things go right.

 

Theory and evidence suggests ‘little and often’ is a sustainable way to achieve long term habit changes, and these can be formed in as little as a few months.

 

“Forget mistakes. Forget failure. Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it.” Will Durant, 1900s

 

I hope you enjoy the show!

How to Find Your True Path - Curves Welcome
 
Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr
 
Today’s episode is inspired by my character Emma from The Fiche Room. It has to do with learning to embrace what’s in your heart even when it doesn’t jive with the dreams others have for you.
 
I remember when I first told someone important to me that I wanted to write a novel. This person nodded, smiled politely, and carried on with her activity at the time, dismissing the idea as something incredibly idealistic and silly.
 
That dismissal caused me to question if the person had it right, was writing a book a silly idea that would lead nowhere? Who was I to write a book anyway? And what if it failed miserably? The person would be able to look me in the eye and say I could’ve told you that would happen.
That kind of stuff used to bother me back then.
 
But thankfully, I did have strength in me to move past the dismissal and try my hand at it anyway.
 
Tune in to listen to the lessons I've learned about this.

How to Be There for Someone

Curves Welcome by Suzie Carr

Certain situations carry a tremendous power because they are teachable moments. They allow us to show up and be there when it matters. They allow us to understand how small details mean so much. To send that card. To buy that person a coffee. To leave a favorite chocolate bar on their desk. To bake a casserole. And perhaps most notable, to show up not having all the answers but having all the love that can comfort those moments of unknowing.

Tune in to explore this with me.

About The Hosts

Sheena comes from a media background and in 2014 she started The Lesbian Review, a website dedicated to reviewing the best lesbian books and movies. In 2016 A podcast channel seemed like a natural progression and so she started The Lesbian Talk Show

Sheena discovered lesbian fiction in her late teens and it helped her with her coming out process, something for which she will always be grateful. 

Tamara is a marketing professional and has branched out into design and photography. Her natural love for research and learning meant that she was the perfect podcast partner when Sheena wanted to start Les Talk About It. (Well, that and the fact that Tamara is married to Sheena.)

How to Move Beyond a Bad Mistake - Curves Welcome

How to Move Beyond a Bad Mistake - Curves Welcome

How to Move Beyond a Bad Mistake - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

Today’s episode is inspired by my character Jackie from The Dance. It has to do with learning how to be gentle with yourself after making a regrettable mistake so you can free yourself enough to move forward and not get stuck in the past.

Mistakes happen. Harsh words sometimes get slung. We act in a hurtful manner. We gossip and someone finds out. We fail to do something of importance when it really matters. We forget a critical event. The list of potential mistakes is endless. In the wake of mistakes, regrets can pile up and dilute our passions and abilities to bring our best back into life.

Tune in to today's episode to learn some tips on how to move beyond a bad mistake.

Each guest has offered their own unique and different take on how to Seize the Day; how to take advantage of opportunities presented to us.  It’s fabulous having them all together in one bite sized, inspiring piece of audio.

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite latin expression, Carpe Diem. I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life who have offered me invaluable guidance. I'm hoping to do the same through these podcasts.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips; sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to help point us in the right direction.

Find a Hobby You Love - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

It’s often through embracing a hobby that we find our passion. The point of a hobby is to have fun doing an activity that lowers our stress and allows us a break from watching the clock and checking off to-do items on our list. It’s a chance to be a kid again and approach life with that same spirited-adventure. When we embrace this side of life, we live it, and we live it with a smile on our face. We feel lighter and more excited about the moments ahead of us. 

Join me for this episode as we explore ways to find a hobby you will love.

How to Create Positive Change through Flexibility - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

The world is never going to fit our ideals. We will always live in a state of frustration if we expect life to go a certain way. The beauty of life is that it does challenge us and make us acutely aware that we are not one person living on an island with a magic button to turn things on and off as we wish. We are living in a complex system amongst others with differing, often competing goals, and if we wish to live in harmony with these differences, then we have to learn how to be more flexible.

Join me for this episode as we explore ways to become more flexible in life.

Let’s face it, receiving criticism can be stressful and deflating to your confidence depending on how it’s delivered, but more importantly, how you interpret it. See that’s the key right there.
