Episode #121: Kimberly takes the mic with an open heart and authentic approach. She is just NOT inspired, SO she picks up two books that will infuse good energy, positive thougths and inspiration to take back the reigns and get your week off to an amazing start! We first take a quick glance and summarize Robert Greene's 48 Laws of Power and how it gave us a bit of the "ick." Have you read this book and if so what are your thoughts? Kimberly gives an honest perspective on how she felt about it.  Next, you can listen to her orate portions of famed basketball coach John Wooden from his bestselling book "Wooden." We cover the importance of Helping Others, Making Each Day Your Masterpiece, and Make Friendship a Fine Art. As we read passages, we carefully extract meaning and find ways to practically apply these concepts to our own lives.  The second book we read excerpts from are "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F&@ck!" by Charles Manson. We read short passages on Pleasure and Material Success. As we consider these concepts, we highlight the importance of not chasing material things too much and becoming aware of when we begin to caught up in material things defining us. We also remember that constantly applying pleasure seeking behaviors is NOT a winning strategy to a fulfilling life. We remain humbled, grounded and rooted in our deep values, even as we continue to climb and ascertain material wealth. We speak on the dangers and pitfalls of both of these ideals that can become diminishing to our overall happiness, as they often have diminishing returns after a certain point.  Please rate, review and comment on Apple and Spotify.

Episode #120:  We unpack the complex topic of fear of success, particularly from the perspective of women. We reflect on the influence of family and culture on our views of success, and how women face unique challenges in balancing career strides with motherhood. The conversation acknowledges the difficulties women often encounter in finding supportive partnerships with other successful women, as opposed to competitiveness and envy. We consider why women may not collaborate as naturally as men, proposing that the novelty of women's roles in leadership could lead to a protective instinct over their positions. We also recognize the importance of women supporting one another, the significance of female mentorship, and the societal progress made since the Women's Liberation movement, all while understanding there's still a long way to go in achieving true equality and camaraderie in the workplace. We explore the societal judgments faced by stay-at-home moms versus working moms, drawing from personal experiences of trying out both roles. I share insights about the unexpected challenges and loneliness of being a stay-at-home parent, despite the common misconception that it's a luxurious and easy lifestyle. We discuss the importance of support systems, such as having family help or a cleaning service, to manage the relentless demands of home life, highlighting that parenting is not a job meant for one person. Additionally, we touch on the evolving role of fathers in child-rearing, the potential benefits of a four-day workweek, and the positive impact involved fathers can have on their children's confidence. The conversation also addresses the pressures of competitive sports on children and the impact it can have on the entire family, questioning the balance between competition and enjoyment in youth activities.   Dr. Karen and Kimberly examin the concept of an internal self-image temperature and how personal growth can challenge this set point, leading to discomfort and potential self-sabotage. I share my personal journey from a modest upbringing to taking the risk of investing in a startup, highlighting the internal conflict between the security of a steady job and the aspirations of creating impactful change. We discuss the importance of confronting these changes and the accompanying sense of loss, while also embracing the growth that comes with stepping into uncharted territory. Throughout the conversation, we emphasize the value of taking calculated risks to live life fully and authentically, with the ultimate goal of encouraging listeners to be the best versions of themselves and make a meaningful impact in the world.   This segment features an engaging conversation with an esteemed guest, celebrated for both their professional prowess in athletics and their remarkable character.
