To create the life, performance, and business that you desire and deserve, you have to see it first. You have to have a positive expectation about yourself, other people, and the circumstances in your life. Dr. Kamphoff talks in this episode how when you continually believe in the best-case scenario and make it happen with your "my-scenario", your life changes. This will change your future and bring your grit to a whole new level. 

This Week's Power Phrase: “ I focus on what I want to happen. I believe the sky is the limit for me.” 

This Week's Quote of the Week: “Don’t spend a lot of time imaging the worst-case scenario. It rarely goes down as you imagine it will, and if by some fluke it does, you will have lived it twice.” —Michael J. Fox

Many of us have gifts that we are not expressing to their fullest. We may not have reflected about what is unique about us, or we might have taken our own unique gifts for granted. We may have even overlooked or downplayed them. But when you name your gifts and work to find your Zone of Genius, you gain more excitement and energy to live your life on purpose. Dr. Kamphoff asks us to consider “What is in your Zone of Genius? How can you spend more time in that zone?” When you make the choice to do just that, you thrive. You spend more time doing what you love and what you were uniquely designed to do. 

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I own my unique skills and talents. I engage in what I love.” 

Quote of the Week: “Hard work doesn’t feel like hard work when you are doing what you love.” —Unknown

Today on the podcast we discuss expectations. Expectations can place pressure on us without even realizing it. To be our best more often, we want to stay focused on excellence, not perfection. We are at our best without expectations when we are focused on the process (the small things we need to do) and our mind is in the present (not the future where expectations live). Today, to be the best you that you can be – do your best and have fun. These two expectations will free you from pressure. 

Power Phrase this Week: “I do my best and have fun!” 

Quote of the Week: “Expect nothing, appreciate everything.” Anonymous

Your inner critic is your disempowering inner voice that can sounds scared, angry, or judgmental. We want to be aware of our inner critic to reduce it. We all have an inner critic inside of us. Remember our inner critic tends to lie to us. We want to respond to our inner critic with challenging it, and choose a more empowering and truthful statement to tell ourselves instead. 

Quote of the Week: “Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.” Brene Brown 

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I talk to myself powerfully instead of listening to my inner critic.” 

Apr 13, 2022

Regularly practicing gratitude is powerful because it has a lasting impact when doing it regularly. Gratitude is connected to better health, more optimism and resilience. Remember, you can shift your focus at any time to what is good and what you are gratitude for in the situation. Choose to take the perspective of a resilient person and draw the good from a difficulty. 

Quote of the Week: “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”—Oprah Winfrey 

Power Phrase of the Week: I choose to intentionally practice gratitude daily. I focus on what I am grateful for to stay fueled and excited for my life.”

In order to reduce overthinking, self-doubt, fear – all of our inner limits – it all starts with self-awareness. Your self-awareness is having an understanding of yourself, your emotions, and what drives you. Cindra challenges you this week to notice yourself – how are you feeling/thinking about, and use the PCR strategy that she discusses to keep increasing your own awareness of yourself. 

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I choose to lead the hardest person first—myself. 

This Week’s Quote of the Week: “Self-awareness is the ability to take an honest look at your life without any attachment to it being right or wrong, good or bad.” Author Debbie Ford 

Mar 11, 2022

Think about a time that you were in flow. What did your flow zone feel like? What led to that feeling? What were you doing? Dr. Cindra shares with us three things we can do to get in the flow more often. Flow is like a muscle—the more you train and experience flow, the easier it will be to reach your flow zone. 

Power Phrase of the Week: “I find my flow and do what I love.”

Quote of the Week: “This is how memories are made….by going with the flow.” Amanda Bynes 

Mar 7, 2022

High performers don’t hope their thinking will work for them; they make their thinking work for them. They are intentional and purposeful with their daily self-talk. They condition their minds each and every day which helps overcome self-doubt. In this episode, Cindra shares two ways to address self-doubt to be intentional with your self-talk.  

This Week’s Power Phrase:  “I level up my thoughts to level up my life.” 

This Week’s Quote of the Week: “Fear and self-doubt have always been the greatest enemies of human potential.” Brian Tracy 

Feb 26, 2022

We can all train our mind like a professional athlete, and we should. When we do, we get to our goal quicker and think and act like a high performer.  To give ourselves the best chance of success, we can work to have a short-term memory of mistakes, focus on the right thing at the right time, and see adversity as helping us get to where we want to go. 

 

This Week’s Power Phrase:  “I train my focus each day to help me reach my goals.” 

Quote of the Week: “The sky has no limits. Neither should you.” Usain Bolt 

Feb 22, 2022

Everyone is a leader. As a leader, you are leading yourself and leading others towards a common goal or purpose. You will not be effective at leading others until you’re first effective at leading yourself. In this episode, Dr. Cindra talks about how we can each lead ourselves more intentionally.  

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I show up in this world with intention.” 

This Week’s Quote: “To lead yourself, use your head. To lead others, use your heart.” John Maxwell

Feb 4, 2022

We have the opportunity to practice acceptance every minute of every day. We can work to accept the situation, accept ourselves, or accept other people. Acceptance is a pillar of peak performance. In this episode, Dr. Kamphoff shares with us how we can move towards acceptance more often.  

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I accept what is and know that I am doing the best I can.” 

Quote of the Week: Wayne Dyer said, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

The key to feeling unstuck is a change in your perspective. In this podcast, we discuss three perspective shifts to getting unstuck to help you feel like your best self again. 

Power Phrase of the Week:  “Each day I master my mindset and see the opportunity in the difficulty!”  

Quote of the Week: “If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one.” Dolly Parton

Jan 25, 2022
In this episode, Dr. Cindra talks about how we can approach any task from a mastery or an ego orientation. A mastery orientation is focused on improving and learning. With a mastery orientation, you engage because you enjoy it and are passionate about the activity. This is the orientation we want to develop because it leads to long-term success. On this episode, we discuss several ideas how you can develop a mastery orientation. 

 

Power Phrase This Week:  “Today I focus on myself and on getting 1% better!”  

Quote of the Week: “The time that leads to mastery is dependent on the intensity of our focus.”— Robert Greene 

Jan 13, 2022

Leading yourself can be very difficult because our brain is hardwired to see what is missing. Instead, you can lead yourself to your own personal vision by remembering these three principles: 1) What you think about yourself, you become, 2) Thoughts only have power if you believe them, and 3) You can act independent of how you feel. Chance thinking doesn’t lead to success – instead, make time each day to master your thoughts and lead yourself. 

This Week’s Power Phrase:  “I level up my thinking to level up my life!”   

Quote of the Week: ““Work harder on yourself than you do your job.”—Jim Rohn, American businessman and self-made millionaire
