Podcast Episodes

EP130: Keep Your Batteries Charged

We always try to get the most out of something, even if it means depleting the source. It’s not that we want to deplete anything, we simply think there’s a little more we can pull out before it ends. Instead, why don’t we learn to take a pause and reenergize our source? This episode talks about keeping your batteries charged.

EP129: What Do You Really Want?

Most times our uncertainty misguides us. Uneasy feelings have us choose the less aligned option between our dream choice and a reasonable choice. It doesn’t need to be like that. Surely, there must be a way to make room for our dream choice. This episode talks about going after what you really want.

EP124: Love and Lower Your Walls

Life is like a game. We move through the game trying our best to protect ourselves while scoring big goals. What you think of it depends on how you view the game.
