This week's show is with Elizabeth Lovius. Elizabeth has always been interested in making things work better. In her early career at IBM, with a background in training, quality management and process improvement she went on a journey to discover what makes people perform at their peak.

Committed to life long learning, Elizabeth has since trained with and been mentored by some of the world’s leading coaches. In the early 90s, at a time when coaching practice was still emerging, she was apprentice to two pioneer coaches and authors: original Inner Game sports coach and co-inventor of the GROW model Alan Fine and internationally renowned transformative mastercoach Michael Neil. Today Elizabeth is a practitioner of the pioneering work of Sydney Banks, the 3 principles of human experience and she helps leaders develop creative and practical solutions to real life leadership situations. 

In this show we explored personality types, that age old question of "Who am I" and whether there's something before our personalities... some kind of true essence.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Humans are often driven to figure out the answer to the question 'Who am I? which can lead us down the path of taking personality tests such as the Enneagram, Belbin and Myers Briggs. These tests aren't really answering that question but they do reflect our thoughts and beliefs at that time.
  • We all have a 'true essence', who we came into the world as babies that's before our personalities and thoughts. 
  • There are many 'channels' that are available to us, we aren't limited to live life only through our personality type channel for example, there's so many other channels to explore!

This week's show is with Eva Church Robinson. Eva was introduced to The Three Principles in 1994, at that point she was 2 years clean and sober after 16 years of being almost constantly homeless and suffering with severe substance abuse related problems.

In Eva's own words: "I was working at the same treatment program that I had spent 6 months at previously. I was going to school for Counseling,  in my own apartment and my husband and son and I were trying to reconcile. At the same time though I was NOT happy. I didn't have any peace of mind. I knew that I never wanted to go back to where I came from (using alcohol and drugs). Yet at the same time,  If what I was experiencing was what life was all about,  I didn't want it either. Then one day at work, Roger Mills and Kristen Manchiem introduced the staff to The Three Principles. I left that day and I truly knew that I had found hope. That was the beginning of of my 1000% life transformation. And my real beginning of being of service to others and myself as well as my Son and Husband."
 
In this show Eva shares her story of starting life growing up in an alcoholic household and then going onto to experience teenage pregnancy, bereavement, serious drug and alcohol abuse and homelessness. And how she overcame all of those struggles and now lives an amazing life helping others who are dealing with some of the issues that she once did.
 
It's such an incredible and inspiring story that has lessons for all of us.

This week's show is with Erika Bugbee. Erika is a partner at Pransky and Associates and co-creator of the company's Online Learning Division.  For 35 years Pransky and Associates has helped individuals, couples, and executives who are motivated and open to learning relate to their minds differently so they're less affected by limitations, fears, and distress, and optimizes their enjoyment, peace of mind, and potential in life. Erika has a Masters degree in psychology and joined Pransky and Associates in 1999. She's married and has two kids, 12 and 14 years old and lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

In this show we explored what Erika’s seen about the default setting that most of us have and how that gets in our way. 

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Our minds often have a default setting like blaming ourselves, or looking for danger but they're not true, they're just the setting that our thoughts are being created through.
  • We all have the opportunity to wake up to our settings at any moment - sometimes that comes from recognising the same setting in someone else. When that happens, the setting ceases to have the same power over us, it's no longer our default.
  • Everyone's lows are going to feel different and individual to them but they're still part of the same predictable trend that all humans experience - all of us go from low to high moods. Understanding that allows us to take the lows less seriously and simply wait for our mood to rise again.
