Show Notes

I've been wondering how I managed to accept some of the people in my life fully—just the way they are. I'm blessed to have many friends in my life whom I love and care for, but there are very few people whom I fully accept, whose flaws and shortcomings I can have in my life without getting irritated about them. I just know that's the way they are

031: Listening to myself: A bad day

This might just be the most uncomfortable piece of content I've ever published. I recently had a lousy day, and captured my mood and thoughts in a rare, ad hoc voice memo. I want to share this with you, because I believe there's value in realizing that we all have down days. But rather than just throw the recording at you, I actually listened to it again and added my comments to it afterwards. This way, you get both the raw, bruised-up version of myself on a bad day, as well as myself reflecting on it. Heads up: This is a very experimental format. I feel uncomfortable sharing this with you. Heck, not too long ago I'd feel uncomfortable sharing this part of myself with even close friends. But inner work is called work for a reason: Oftentimes it means doing the thing you don't feel like doing.   For transcript and comments: https://steliefti.com/a-bad-day/ Connect with me: https://twitter.com/steli https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/    ...

009: Turn Rejection into Progress with This Old-School Mind Hack

If you're facing a lot of rejection, here's an old-school hack I learned early on in my sales career.  You might have heard this before: The trick is to just turn every rejection as a stepping stone on the way to your goal. Work out the math. If out of 100 people you ask for a yes, 95 give you a no, and you want to get 1 yes per day, then make it your daily goal to get 20 nos.  In this episode I dig deeper into why this reframing technique works, share some personal stories, and a few extra ideas to help you make it even more effective.

121: The Impersonating Mind

Listen to your heart. Get in touch with your body. Trust your intuition. All of these are easier said than done, because they require something from the mind it doesn't like to do: relinquish control. The mind always wants to run the show, and it won't hesitate for a moment to pretend to be all these different parts of ourselves, putting on the costume of the heart and imitating it's voice, telling us what it, the mind, wants us to hear, rather what the heart is actually telling us. In this episode, I share my daily experiences of unmasking the mind, and what I learned from doing so.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep121 Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...
