We all have patterns in which we interpret and therefore respond to the world.

This positively and negatively influences every relationship in our lives. The relationship with ourselves (self-image), with others, and with our spiritual faith.

Beth McCord is a renowned expert in the Enneagram, which is a map for self-discovery and personal growth based on 9 basic personality types.

The Enneagram accurately and clearly describes why you think, feel and behave in particular ways based upon your core fears and core desires.

My focus in this show was not just to understand your personality type but to understand what difference it actually provides in your life.

Much of Beth’s mission is to help us all be more self aware and understand how to use the awareness to benefit us and specifically not let any understanding of our weaknesses cause any shame or contempt.

I think you’ll find new insight you can use for your immediate benefit in this episode, and if you want to figure yourself out more, Beth is offering us a free enneagram course at yourenneagramcoach.com

Nutrisystem

America is struggling more than ever with weight gain, and it’s not happening to us. We are doing it to ourselves. A primary hurdle to addressing it is our diet and simply knowing what to eat for our individual needs, how much, and having it ready and accessible for consumption at the appropriate times. Now please listen, the best thing you can do is the work and investment to figure out just what you need, shop for it, cook it, and prepare portions to have with you every day. 

But the bottom line is…it’s just not going to happen for many people. If that’s you, Nutri system is a simple and convenient option. They give you a personalized plan that adapts to your unique metabolism and gets you in fat-burning mode.  They ship pre portioned foods to your door, with a structure that fits your busy lifestyle. Just grab the meals designated for you and all you need to do is add some fresh fruits and veggies, which to me is a must for your overall health, aside from mere weight loss.

Nutrisystem works to help you keep feeling full and not deprived of food, and I appreciate addresses the sweet tooth most people have with better options. 

Many people lose up to 18lbs in the first two months and Nutrisystem works with you to keep it off. You get unlimited one on one coaching and they have a top-rated app called NuMi for extra motivation to help you stay on track.

I wonder of the claim of saving 7 hours is actually a bit stingy, as aside from just task time, my experience with myself and others is inefficiency.
