Today’s guest is Jenna Phillips Ballard, a certified personal trainer and life coach for celebrities, previously featured on Dr. Phil and The Doctors. She is on a mission to motivate and inspire leaders to make the world a better place through self-love.

After waking up from a coma in the year 2000, she recovered from brain damage and learned about the power of self-love. Her commitment to recovery depended on how she felt about herself and she realized her purpose was to inspire others to break through their limiting beliefs and create an unforgettable life.

She cofounded Ascension Leadership Academy with her husband and together they have coached hundreds of people into their greatness. She’s also the founder of Unicorn University, an online membership community where women never spend another day of being beige, broken or behaved.

We are discussing emotional intelligence – reframing the stories we tell about the experiences in our life and engaging with our children. Join us!

“I believe that being a parent, being a mom or a dad or a parental figure is the most important job in the entire world because of our world, our planet depends upon how our children today are going to take on that responsibility when they become adults. It’s incredibly important that people get the opportunity to look at their life through a different lens. You can’t change the past, but you can absolutely change the story you tell about your past and that’s how you can re-write history”

What you’ll hear in this episode:

·      Compassion as a mindset

·      Finding the lesson, learning and opportunity in parenting struggles

·      How Fear limits mindset and fulfillment

·      Managing Fear and operating in its presence

·      Finding our worthiness beneath all the preconceptions we have about ourselves

·      Selfishness and setting examples for self care – modeling and cycle breaking

·      How to shift your mindset around time, busyness and abundance – reframing how we see time and capacityRef

·      Being an interruption to your own thought patterns that don’t move you forward

·      How to be a “meaning making machine”

·      Reframing typical mom complaints as invitations to conversation

·      Reframing as a practice, shifting your mindset around abundance and asking for support to stretch your plate

·      How to get out of your own way

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

Joyful courage means finding the joy and the bliss in any specific circumstance, situation, no matter how scared out of your mind that you are – it’s being courageous, staying in the heart anyways, going for it anyway, because joy is a choice. You get to choose joy.

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

Joyful courage means being willing to step out of complacency, out of the box, and follow that inner voice that you have saying “Yes!” even when you are in doubt or fear say “Yes!” anyways and I strive to do this in everything I do is bring joy to it. Go to the grocery store and find some joy. I have a friend who buys flowers every Tuesday during her grocery shopping and her goal is to give those flowers away by the time she gets back to her house….Stepping out of our boxes and our little narrow lanes and our busy-ness or overwhelm in our own life but just stepping out a little bit to see there’s this world out there and what can I do to bring joy into the world – and we need it.

Today’s guest is Larissa Dann, a Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) trainer. We are discussing parenting without rewards and punishments. Join us!

 “Children don’t misbehave, they behave to meet a need.”

What you’ll hear in this episode:

  • Being assertive without alienating our children
  • Using “I messages” to communicate needs
  • Trusting our child’s desire to be helpful vs. presenting requests in a way that is prescriptive
  • Using active listening to gain cooperation
  • The limitations of contingent rewards
  • The impact of rewards on motivation for cooperation – who are they cooperating for
  • Omitting rewards to foster self-discipline and an inner locus of control
  • Preparing children for adulthood by making them less dependent on the judgment of others
  • Using relationship skills to help your child develop a moral compass
  • The power of natural consequences in building resilience and developing internal judgments about right and wrong
  • Trusting children to care and problem solve to find mutual solutions
  • How children’s behavior is impacted by unmet needs
  • Avoiding the temptation to attribute intent or take behavior personally
  • The gift of imperfection and modeling accountability
  • The benefit of modeling alternate skills to teach solutions instead of using punishments
  • The impact we have on the world through our own parenting practices in the way we raise our kids
  • Parenting as imparting soft skills
  • Brainstorming solutions to discomfort when the activity is non-negotiable
  • Creating routines and agreements, doing with vs doing to and communicating expectations in a way that is an invitation to relationship
  • Conflict as competing needs
  • Shifting language around what “works” to what is “helpful” – moving from control to partnership

 

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

This is what it takes to be a child growing up in an adult’s world and it’s something we so often forget. Children so often are powerless and it takes courage for them to say no when we are the huge person in their life and when they think they might get into trouble and yet they are the most joyful beings on the planet. In the face of the most dire situations, children can somehow find that spark of joy that they can bring out from terrible situations. As a parent, it takes the courage of conviction, to parent against the flow of accepted parenting opinion and practice and the joy comes when you see your children flower and grow sometimes despite your many mistakes.
