moneyIt is always an honor and privilege to listen to and speak with author Mike Robbins. Our call last week was no different. In fact, from the feedback I have received, I know that people really were touched and inspired.

 

Mike Robbins, has written both Focus on the Good Stuff and Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken. Mike and his work have been featured on ABC News, the Oprah radio network, in Forbes and the Washington Post, and on more than 300 radio and TV stations in North America.  He is also a regular contributor for the Huffington Post.  Mike is also the host of his own radio show, "Let's Get Real with Mike Robbins," on Energy Talk Radio.

Here are a few key takeaways from my interview with Mike:


- Take care of yourself! We so often forget about ourselves when we are so busy taking care of all of those around us.

- Key advice Mike received: The most important job you have as a father is to teach your daughter to love herself by loving yourself and allowing her to see it!

- People often resist self appreciation. It seems that society has this rule against it, and so we follow (i.e. don't praise yourself too much, it makes you look bad)

- Our relationship to others is a function of our relationship to ourselves. Remember, "no one can make you feel inferior without your permission"

 

- The holidays themselves are not stressful. It is what we make of them. We act as if we are the victims but it is a function of what we allow and create.

- Most of us are suppressing our authentic selves. Practice being authentic. Practice using statements like: "I feel ....", "I notice...."

- You can resolve conflict in two ways: deal with it all the way through or just letting it go.

- "Joy doesn't exist in the world, it exists in us"
