Curves Welcome: How to Benefit from Criticism

Curves Welcome –How to Benefit from Criticism

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr reflects back on a critical review that changed her life.

What do you do when someone criticizes you? Do you let it stop you? Or do you use that criticism to your advantage and as a tool for growth? Yeah, that’s hard to do. To look at criticism as a tool for growth. When someone slings hurt your way, the first reaction you want to take is to sling it right back, right? The ego gets involved and says, how dare you treat me this way? How dare you insult me?

But, what if you took a different approach? What if instead of slinging it back in an attempt to protect yourself from hurt, you put it aside for a while until your emotions cooled? Then, when they’re nice and cool you approach it again through a new lens, a lens of objectivity, a lens of discovery.

You’re probably thinking, hey wait a minute, this person just ripped me into a million pieces, and publicly no less, and you want me to discover something through a lens of objectivity? What are you nuts?

I guess maybe I am a little nuts. Hahaha

Tune in to find out just how nuts I can be with this…

Have you ever experienced a moment when your life flashed before your eyes and this jolted you back to being totally alive? It’s wild when it happens. One moment you’re gliding by on auto-pilot, and then BAM, reality smacks you upside the head and causes you to hyperventilate and tremble for what seems like an eternity.

So, I experienced this kind of eye-opening, heart-pounding, super scary moment while driving a few months back.

Curves Welcome: How to Stop Comparing Yourself

Curves Welcome – How to Stop Comparing Yourself

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr reflects on how we compare ourselves to others, and the damage this causes us.

 

I listened to a podcast by Brendan Burchard the other day and he said something that completely resonated. “When we compare, we stop performing our best because we are following instead of doing our own thing.”

I do believe that comparisons can be helpful if you do so with the intention to grow and learn from them.

But most of us, when we compare, we are often doing so from a viewpoint of lack and if I’m being honest, envy. Of course, this doesn’t serve us. We know it’s a dangerous game to compare ourselves because it brings about feelings of inadequacy and can seriously stunt our growth. Yet, many of us still do it.

Tune in to find out why we do this and how we can stop through a simple change in perspective.

Curves Welcome: How to Improve Focus

Curves Welcome – How to Improve Focus

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr takes a look at priorities and how they play a crucial part in our life journey.

Focusing too intently on activities that aren’t related to your priorities will only cause you to move further away from it. That’s obvious, but incredibly many of us tend to forget this important fact as we go about our daily life. We are lured into the temptation of eating the wrong foods, selecting TV over exercise, procrastinating about getting our blog or books written or studying that course on finance we may have deemed as a priority. We see this neglect all the time with people who want to be active, yet they dedicate themselves to clearing out their DVD recordings by watching marathon episodes the whole day.

I’ve been there. I’ve opted to watch hours upon hours of recordings of American Idol year after year while I had big projects waiting on me to get started. Watching a star be born on American television will not help me generate revenue and put food on my table. My word count for the day will not build itself. I am not going to meet new readers or score interview opportunities if I’m parked passively in front of the television watching someone else give birth to her dream.

We’ve got this one shot at life, friends. One shot to make the most out of an incredible gift. Don’t let the distractions take you away from experiencing the satisfaction of living a life of purpose, rich with those things that open your heart and put a smile on your face.

Tune in to learn how to focus on what’s really important in your life.

Curves Welcome: Turn Uncertainty into Opportunity

December 21, 2017

Curves Welcome –Turn Uncertainty into Opportunity

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr analyzes uncertainty and its powerful effect on life. She examines those who have the ability to take a bad situation and create a good outcome from it.

Uncertainty is as much a part of life as breathing. Most of us fear uncertainty on some level. We may fear things like getting into a car accident on the way to the grocery store, losing our job that we love, finding out we didn’t get that promotion we sought, missing out on a fun vacation because of a lack of funds, having our car not start on an important meeting day. You’re not alone if you’ve had these thoughts. But what makes us have these thoughts in the first place?

Some experts might say it’s out intolerance of uncertainty that causes us to fear it.

Interestingly enough, many of us view uncertainty as a bad thing. We attribute a bad outcome to its presence. But what if that uncertainty is necessary for you to get to a new place, a better place? What if these uncertain situations create good outcomes in the end?

Tune in and see how bad things can evolve into good.

Curves Welcome – How to Be Attentive to the Present Moment

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr talks about one of the greatest life lessons she learned from her dogs, how to be more mindful in this chaotic world.

The greatest lessons I’ve learned in life have been through my dogs. Dogs are natural leaders, healers, and friends. Without words, without judgment, without criticism, and instead with a simple look, they know exactly how to communicate the important things in life.

One of the greatest life lessons I learned that I learned from my dogs is indulging in the present moment, or in other words, being mindful.

Dogs understand how to live in the present moment. They know how to dig in and really grasp the here and now. If we can learn how to be more mindful, we can learn how to live a better life. How to stay calm, centered and attentive to the present moment.

What do mindful people do on a daily basis to make the most out of life? Tune in the find out!
