Your Courageous Life podcast

Your Courageous Life podcast

Kate Swoboda says that it's time--time for us to release the fear that holds us back, and step into being our most courageous selves. To do that, we've got to get real about the fear-based behavioral habits that have become patterns controlling our lives. When you start rewiring the habits that have had you stuck, you emerge excited about what's possible, ready to take on life as an adventure, and more resilient in the face of discomfort and challenges. The Your Courageous Life podcast is some parts inspiration, other parts "What are you waiting for?", and always real about the doable actions to change your habits and change your life. Get ready to believe that everything is figure-out-able, that your past doesn't define you, and that it's time to stop dreaming big...it's time to start living big.

Today’s podcast episode breaks down the signs that this is happening--and how to respond from a place of courage.

It was an opportunity to find out where our skill-sets were coping had holes. It was an opportunity to look at justice in a new light. It was an opportunity to say more true yes, and more true no.

We can be so hard on ourselves (and others) when we don’t understand why we behave the way we do (“After all, if I know better, shouldn’t I just do better?”). When we see reframing behaviors as an opportunity to examine the needs that might underlie our actions, then we can start to understand ourselves or others differently. Our behaviors have a purpose (even if we can’t see it right away) and a bit of inquiry can help us to see w...

We often think of finding your purpose as this thing that you do, a space you arrive at, and having arrived there...the heavens part and golden light shines down, and you skip off into the sunset because now you’ve got a purpose and life is great.

Since habits are behind so much of what we do (or avoid doing) in our lives, we need to look at how to change a habit if we want to make positive change.
