Season 1, Episode 40: Dr Ed talks about Professional Relationships, Living Life Intentionally

(The latest episode in the high-impact living series)

Are you living your life to its fullest?  Or are you living in a trance, just kind of drifting along like a log drifts down a stream?  Just meandering through life rather than embracing every day with focus, attention and intention?

When you were younger, did you have a dream of what you wanted to do in your life? What happened to that dream?  Did you know that you can get those dreams back?

A lot of times, it’s our subconscious mind at play here.  We go to classes and seminars that “train” us to do something different.  And that is a great first step.  What we don’t do is address the core of the situation, which is our subconscious mind.  And that is what we are focusing on today with our guest, Dr Edward Lewellen.  We are continuing  our series called High Impact Living , and you will want to watch these shows again and again, as Dr. Ed takes us through a powerful journey of subconscious discovery!

Dr. Lewellen holds an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity, Certified Master Executive Coach, Master NLP Practitioner, Master Life Coach and has an MBA in Management. Dr. Lewellen has consulted with businesses, universities, and Chambers of Commerce. He has been invited to speak to psychology and international departments of universities.

Season 1, Episode 39: Personal Relationships with Dr Ed Lewellen

(Latest in the high-impact living series)

In previous segments in our series, we have delved into weight loss and a healthy, fit lifestyle and financial security.  Interwoven into each of those segments has been an understanding your core identity.

Through my work with Dr. Ed, I have been able to identify my core identity as:  empathy, happy, fun, insatiable curiosity, excitement and health.  I remind you of these as they will become more relevant as we move through our discussion in this episode.

Before we get started with this whole relationship business, let’s first briefly review what our core identity is with Dr Ed.  Then he is going to walk us through relationships through two lenses: one is from the lens of first not knowing our core identity, and then secondly through the lens of understanding our core identity.

Dr. Lewellen holds an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity, Certified Master Executive Coach, Master NLP Practitioner, Master Life Coach and has an MBA in Management.

Season 1, Episode 35: Becoming Your Best Healthy Self with Guest Mary Ellen Dorey

You know one of the things I am always curious about is self care.  I think as women, especially, we end up putting everyone else before us.  But really, if we are not healthy, no one else around us is either.  So, let’s take a step back, and give ourselves permission to look not just for traditional but also non-traditional ways of taking care of ourselves.

If that sounds good, you will love my next guest, as we learn about reflexology!

Season 1, Episode 34: Weight Loss and Leading a Healthy and Fit Lifestyle

This is the first in the multi-part series on High Impact Living

Did you know that 30% of Americans are considered obese?  Another 30% are considered overweight.   Which means that for every 10 Americans, only four fall into the category of “healthy weight” or below.   The United States is now the “winner” of having the highest rate of obesity among children and adults.

Yet, there is more access in the U.S. to healthy food, daily exercise, vitamins, minerals, herbs, surgeries, and all sorts of opportunities to be fit and healthy than any other country in the world.

Clearly, things have gotten out of control.  In this next installment of High Impact Living, Dr Edward Lewellen discusses how to regain control of your life, and addressing the underlying reasons for carrying extra weight.  He will show you what you can do internally to shape your world externally.

In this episode, we are specifically discussing weight loss and a healthy, fit lifestyle with Dr Edward Lewellen!

Episode 33: What’s Your Style?

A lot is said and written about personal style, but doing something about it is quite another thing.  Taking action to dress and accessorize yourself to put your best foot forward is one of the best ways to accentuate and advance your image and define your brand. Finding the right balance of style, budget, size and color is a marriage of creativity and practicality.IMG_2181

Episode 31: Are You Able to Look at Things a Little Differently?

Ayesha Aman Picture Red Shirt Small Size“Just because someone else does something doesn’t mean you have to do the same thing.”

Did you ever have a parent or someone say that to you? Did it cause you to think through how to solve a challenge differently than you would have typically done?  This thought process, whether we realize it or not, helps guide us through thinking differently. Just because it’s always been done that way, does that mean it is the most efficient or effective way of doing it?  Can we improve the process by looking at it in a different way?

Episode 29: What Problem Have You Solved Lately?

Necessity is the mother of invention” is an English-language proverb. It means, roughly, that the primary driving force for most new inventions is a need. Many of us think this way naturally; it is easy for us to think of many different ways to solve a situation.  Thank goodness we have entrepreneurs who think like this – they see a need and start figuring out how to solve the problem. Some are true-blue inventors; others are more situational and are great at problem solving between people.

Which one are you? What problem have you solved lately?

My guest today, Sharon Caswell, is just such a thinker.  From leading software development programs that have solved problems related to logistics to credit card payment processing, she recently took on wearable technology for horses.  As a life-long horse lover and trained as a software engineer.
