Primal Potential

The Primal Potential Podcast is about transformation, not information. So many of us KNOW what we need to do to achieve our goals but we aren't DOING it. There's a continuous gap between our INTENTIONS and our ACTIONS. Primal Potential is a TOOL to help you create massive change in your life and ENJOY the journey!

Today we're taking a look at some powerful research supporting the fact that busyness leads to bad decisions and, most importantly, what we can do about it.

https://primalpotential.com/723/

Here's the article referenced in today's episode.

“When we get caught up in a time scarcity trap of busyness, a panicked firefighting mode, we might only have the capacity to focus on the most immediate, often low-value tasks right in front of us rather than the big project or the long-range strategic thinking that would help keep us out of the tunnel in the first place.”

It always helps to figure out first in which area in your life that you could insert DISCIPLINE a little more! Be specific with what outcome you want, work on it every day, and stick with it. The highlight of this Saturday's Q&A episode is discipline and how you could incorporate it into your life. Join us as we tackle the topic!

Today's winner gets a bottle of Probiotics!

Here's the list of questions we're discussing in this episode:

  • Can you talk about discipline?
  • You always hear that you should be “the dumbest” person in your group in order to elevate and grow. I get the concept. But how do you find that in real life? I have some great long-time friends... that I’m keeping but I keep thinking I should do more and find an additional group? Not easy to do at my age and introvert tendencies.
  • The pictures on my online dating profile are from when I was 30 pounds lighter, which I gained in the last couple of months due to stress and lack of focus. Should I disclose that I’ve gained weight or should I update the pics (which I haven’t been taking pics) or should I pause online dating until I get my shit together?
  • Why can't I stop eating? I've listened to hundreds of EB's podcasts. I'm in therapy and I've lost 80 lbs over 2 years... and I still can't stop eating/bingeing and keep regaining my weight. I still have 100 lbs to lose.

We announce the winner of Probiotics at the end of the episode!

Here's the Primal Potential Facebook group mentioned in the episode. We're excited to have you there!

There are three simple ways to win: leave a review on our Apple Podcasts page, or leave a review of Chasing Cupcakes, or you can even follow and tag me on Instagram or Facebook and share with us your favorite episode of the show.

Money is a weird topic. I love to talk about it because I think it makes it more accessible for everyone. Others get super squirrely when it comes up. On today's episode, we want to bust through some money myths and misunderstanding and explore how creating financial abundance is for EVERYONE.

On today's episode I have Brett Thomas, a former sales executive who left the security of a 25-year career to work for himself and make a bigger impact in the world.

We'll also tak with Pat Hintze who quickly realized that working for someone else would limit him. He has worked for himself for over 20 years and the ways it allows him to serve his family & community have far exceeded his expectations.

Lastly, you'll hear again from Brooke Thomas, who believes that we have to generate to be generous.

Thanks to the recommendation of a friend & business partner of mine, I read "Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business" back in November/December.

If we begin to assess and respond to warning signs of impending health problems, we can create a buffer against many health challenges. The key is, we have to know what these warning signs are and where we stand.

Ladies! Whether you are pre-menopausal or post-menopausal, we ALL have a monthly hormonal cycle. When you eat for your cycle, you feel better! Increase your energy, improve focus, decrease hunger & cravings just by making a few small adjustments based on where you are in your monthly cycle.

I'm so excited to have Brooke Thomas back on the show! Too many people are "fine". Things are "okay". People are living a fine life, even a good life, but not a life they love.

Oftentimes, setting a bigger vision feels weird. We're unsure of ourselves and make decisions based on how others might respond to the moves we make. That means living small!

In this converation with Brooke Thomas, we talk about how to create clarity for your life and how to respond to yourself as you start going through the fears, doubts and dramas.

Be on the lookout for Brooke's new podcast - the Live Out Loud Show launches this week and as soon as it's life, we'll link to it here!

One of the topics we're focusing on in this Saturday's Q&A is NUMBERS - the thing you see on the scale, on your bank account, or on anything else that contributes to your life and mindset. How do you face these figures? What does 'avoidance isn't refuge' mean when it comes to these numbers? Join us as we tackle the topic in this episode!

Here's the complete list of questions we're answering today:

  • I would love your opinion on tracking body composition and weight. I'm working with a counselor who wants me to avoid numbers altogether, as she thinks I try to over-control these variables. However, I believe that avoiding these numbers is hiding from them. You once said "avoidance isn't refuge" in the 12WT and it's always stuck with me. I think it's important to train myself to be able to face the numbers and have an objective, non-dramatic response to them regardless of what they are. I also think it's important to have an objective measure of progress so I can re-evaluate whether or not what I'm doing is working. On the other hand, I also feel a reasonable amount of stress at the thought of letting go of numerical measures of progress altogether, so maybe she's onto something. What are your thoughts?
  • What are some physically actionable activities to ride out cravings?
  • How do I stop self-sabotage and procrastination from keeping me from identifying what I truly want in my life?
  • I'd love to hear tips for facing the plateau- after sustained effort, there is a point where the scale seems stuck- (or broken!) How do you maintain focus to have the positive belief that it will happen with sustained effort?
  • What’s your thoughts on nut consumption? I absolutely love them, so if you are pro-nut, when would Be the best time to eat them and with what?

Today's giveaway winner gets a bottle of mood+! We announce the winner at the end of the episode!

Taking action isn't the same as creating a solution. Respond to a problem isn't the same as solving it. Are you exhausting yourself with fruitless effort? I want us all to commit to making this a year of ACTION instead of a year of learning. Let's make this a year of CHANGE. If you need a little fire about taking action, this is the episode for you!
