REAL WOMEN. REAL LIVES.
When faced with situations that seem insurmountable—or impossible—we can get paralyzed or discouraged. But what if we could pause, clear our minds, and allow other ideas to come forward?
In today’s episode, Barb and Melissa discuss insights they’ve had around “facing the impossible” and demonstrate some of their successes in shifting from a seemingly impossible moment into, at times, an even better outcome.
Melissa shares her seemingly Seussical slog when a venue change upends a theatrical production. She shares with us the power of resilience. [00:02:18]
Barb expounds on a statement from a colleague that helped her realize how many options we have when faced with what seems impossible. [00:07:45]
Barb reminds us that if we look in the direction of what won’t work, we will find more than sufficient evidence as to why it won’t work. [00:09:33]
Melissa and Barb discuss the relevance of having a neutral mind in any situation, especially when we are knocked off course or see something as a problem. [00:13:10]
Barb explains what she means by beginning not to respect the thoughts that try to indicate that there is no way out of a situation and instead focusing on all the possibilities. [00:17:21]
Melissa acknowledges the universality of how our minds work. That it’s not exclusive to certain people and asks listeners to consider, “If the show must go on, what would you do?” [00:19:10]
