Show Notes

I've always been a very cerebral person, relying primarily on my intellect to achieve my goals and solve problems I encounter. For a very long time, I equated the mind with myself. I viewed the body as a vehicle that just carries my mind. But as I started getting more in touch with my feelings, I also started paying more attention to my body—and began to realize that it's so much more than just a vehicle. The body has it's own wisdom.

Recently I decided to pay more attention to what my body tells me—and soon caught my mind pretending to be my body. 

When you bring mind, body, and soul in harmony, when you connect the different parts within you, then you also become whole and feel more connected with everything around you.

140: The Miracle of You

An important point that I need to keep remembering is that it’s truly a miracle how adaptable we are. The capacity of a human being to heal and transform and overcome obstacles is tremendous. We are always healing, fixing and overcoming. We need to remember that no matter what difficult situations or feelings we’re experiencing, we aren’t alone - millions of other people have or will also experience the same thing as you. Don’t let the “I should be better” syndrome creep in and create unnecessary fear and tension in your life. At the end of the day, everything in life can be fixed or changed.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep140 Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...

015: Want that startup job? Let your CV tell a story

Thousands of people apply to join my our startup every month. Lots of “why you should hire me”-style pitches coming my way. Once you’re on the receiving end of screening job applications, you realize: CVs suck. Almost nobody is good at writing CVs—even badass marketers and great sales people are surprisingly bad at it.   I’m pretty sure I missed out on hiring some amazing talent, just because the CVs they sent me unsold me on learning more about them: A list of places they studied and worked at, that doesn’t tell a story, doesn’t convey a compelling message, doesn’t give me any sense for why this person is the right fit for the role. So yes, thank you, but no.   In this episode of the podcast, I share why you need to make your CV tell a story, and how to do it well.   Connect with me: https://twitter.com/steli https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/ https://www.instagram.com/steliefti/ ...

122: Next Level Anger Management: Appreciating My Inner Truth Teller

I've spent a good amount of time over the past 2 years working on the anger that I thought I didn't have. And for the most part, I thought that I was good by now—I felt I had a good relationship with my anger. Until something unexpected happened: I got angry, and I hid it (even from myself). And then my jaw started to get painfully tense again, and it wouldn't relax. I started to work on it, tried all kinds of techniques that I have in my anger management toolbox, thought I had resolved the underlying issue—but my jaw still was tense. Ultimately, I learned that there was something for me to learn which I wasn't ready for, and I would never have uncovered, if it wasn't for my anger and its physiological manifestation, the tense jaw. It took a couple of days of inner work, which wasn't pleasant, but in hindsight, I'm incredibly grateful for the lesson learned.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep122 Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...
