3 Deep Insecurities We Have and 3 Powerful Steps to Overcome Them

Our insecurities are a reflection of how we view ourselves and how we take people’s comments about us. If we let comments and thoughts that aren’t our own dictate how we live our lives, we will only end up with deeper insecurities. The more we let other people’s thoughts and opinions affect our own decisions and how we see ourselves, we become blind to who we really are and the potential buried deep within us. We can not let these words continue to decide for us.  In this episode of On Purpose, Jay Shetty tells us how to find our own voice and turn these insecurities into stepping stones for healing and self-improvement.  Sama Tea is now available!

6 Ways to Stop Listening to People's Opinions & Take Control of Your Life

When we can’t decide on something or make an important decision about something big in our lives, we often seek advice from others. We ask for people’s opinions on what they would do if they were in the same situation and how they would go about resolving the issue at hand. And as we listen to their opinions, we get a sense of enlightenment, a sense of direction. And most of us often tend to listen to what they have to say. But sometimes other people’s opinions don't offer the best help simply because these opinions were given without thinking of the consequences it will have on our lives. In this episode of On Purpose, Jay Shetty talks about the types of advice we can seek from others to help us handle difficult situations but also learn how to make small decisions on our own.  Sama Tea is now available!

Who do you identify as in your relationship? Are you often in the “I need to fix this” mode? Or do you prefer to be taken care of or to be told what to do most of the time?

9 Ways To Get Comfortable Doing Uncomfortable Things and Growing Through It

Perhaps, it is easier to tell someone to be brave and to do something they haven’t done before. It’s easier to be that encouraging voice on the side cheering for them. But it isn’t as easy when you’re at the receiving end, when you’re the one being encouraged to do something you’re uncomfortable doing. It takes courage and an open mind to do something you’re hesitant to do because it’s outside of your comfort zone, especially when it’s something you never thought of doing out of fear of failing or getting rejected. In this episode of On Purpose, Jay Shetty talks about how doing small uncomfortable things can gradually lead you to embracing changes and improving yourself.

8 Principles of Communication to Improve Your Relationship and Become a Better Problem Solver

“I hear you. I understand that this is difficult for you. What can I do to help?” These are the words we desperately want to hear when things don’t work out in our life.

9 Ways You’re Blocking Your Own Growth & How To Get Unstuck

You are blocking your own growth. Not your work, not your boss, not your partner, not your family, not even your culture. No one else but yourself is blocking you from reaching your maximum potential. Yes, this is the truth. Many of us blame other people, our circumstances, our disadvantages in life, or the lack of influence we have on others to make things work for us, to achieve the things we want to achieve without realizing that all of this unobtained dreams and undeveloped potential are caused by our own lack of focus on our own growth. In this episode of On Purpose, Jay Shetty talks about the most common ways we fail to develop ourselves because we often lose focus on what we truly care about and what will make us grow.

7 Ways to Get Through Tough Days, Weeks & Months In Love & Relationships
