004: Tough Love - Lockdown Survival Kit Edition
When this was posted, Greater Sydney was in lockdown. As a fellow self-helper, I was obligated to push the collective to move toward self-mastery over negativity during this time. By listening to this, you're signing a virtual contract to improve yourself in this period. I think this is an opportunity to maximise your relationship with yourself and I would not want you to miss out. Steps for the Survival Kit: Context: What kind of change person are you? Inspiration: Doing your personality tests; Habit Building: Reference to James Clear's "Atomic Habits" (10/10 read) The Outcome: Pride, Self-Confidence and Resilience

003: *Trending Series* Breaking down 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' by Robert Kiyosaki
The truth is, today you don't have to go to work for someone else and join the rat race to make money. Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" is an exemplar book on this statement. It's a motivational book where Kiyosaki debunks and demeans the traditional attitudes to money through working harder to get a better job to be able to save money. From this, this episode extrapolates that financial Intelligence is pretty critical for any individual, given we don't learn about it in school. In summation, read the damn book if you haven't already. This book is gold.

002: You are enough AND you can also be better.
Today I felt obligated to discuss that you are enough. Often when we are improving ourselves, we forget to love that stage that we are at. I know that it's hard to balance appreciating yourself and striving for better so we need to be deliberate about knowing our worth. In order for me to continue to elevate this collective, I wanted to ensure we all know that we are enough. So that's what I decided to do before we take it to the next level.

A movement is something we can observe, take part in or even subconsciously start being a part of - but do we truly know what these movements mean? Today I'm extrapolating what I've found to be valuable in the current wave of being a Minimalist and what Minimalism means. This episode was catalysed by the Less is Now Documentary on Netflix by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus.
