Episode 27 – How can I stop getting caught up in comparing myself to others?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Princess’s question:

“How can I stop getting caught up in comparing myself to others?”

Before we dive into the question of the day, JG shares his own personal “Ladder of Consciousness” and how he uses it to instantly shift from a low state of mind to being high-spirited and Steve talks about we can use LSD (it may not mean what you think it means) to rise us up the ladder!

Steve also talks about how devotion to the people you serve can be the antidote to the envy of others and why you have NO real competition to begin with!

Plus, JG talks about the upside of comparison and how it can actually serve you instead of tearing you down!

And we take a minute to shout out one of our uber-creative, playful and supportive viewers, DJ Emma Short-E in the UK who has taken both Steve and JG’s voices and done amazing things with her scratching skills!  

Tell us what YOU think…

How will you use the power of the ladder to raise YOUR spirits the next time you are feeling low?  And in what ways will you USE comparison to build you up?

Episode 26 – How do you help someone you know is suffering but isn’t ready to listen?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Phil’s question:

“How do you help someone you know is suffering but isn’t ready to listen?”

In this episode, JG shares how offering up “words of wisdom” to those in “need” rarely works and we talk about the difference between getting people to SEE the light and instead deciding to BE the light.

Plus Steve goes through some late stage puberty (that he tries to blame on singing) and then shares some brilliant wisdom from the late, great Dr. Nathaniel Brandon on suffering that just may wake you up!

How about you?

How do you think your relationships with family and friends would improve if you detached yourself from the personal responsibility of making them change?

Now back to the matter at hand!

In this episode, JG shares the alternative to being triggered and sucked into a typhoon of negativity and Steve shares a simple and powerful mathematical equation to keep you calm and help you convert the stress of a negative person into the amusement of a movie!  …and he proves that Jason is horrible at math!

Plus you will hear about the really tempting job offer that Steve and JG recently received.  Don’t worry; we turned it down so we could keep focusing on the show for all of you!

We want to hear from you!

How will you use the tips we shared in your own relationships to keep others negativity from hijacking your happiness?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Anne’s question:

“How do you set yourself up for success when you want to create something new?”

After we take WAY too long playing a little game of “guess the Beatle” (which JG fails MISERABLY at), we jump into helping Anne become a “Time (and creativity) Warrior”!

JG shares what he does to manage his energy and space and Steve gives us a really masterful way to get inspired, to take action and to create something original – without all the pressure and stress!

Plus we give a big shout out of love and gratitude to Meredith for her support of our show and for spreading her goodness in the world!  Thanks Meredith!

Episode 24 – How can I have more fun with boring tasks?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Arzu’s question:

“How can I have more fun with boring tasks?”

We all have parts of our lives or work that are important but not necessarily overflowing with fun and excitement on the surface right?

Tune in to Episode 24 of the #NotSoSerious Life to see how Steve and JG bring fun TO our own tasks and activities.

We also talk a bit about outsourcing, delegation and breaking through any self-imposed barriers to utilizing the gifts of others when it makes sense.

Plus Steve shares that the concepts of “boring” and “fascinating” don’t actually exist! #mindblown #POW

How about you?

Besides music and “bribery”, how else do you make the seemingly “not-so-fun” into something you enjoy!?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Richie Ravioli’s question:

“How do I stop letting my mother turn me into a negative person when I’m around her?”

I think we finally figured out the missing link as to why Kellogg’s hasn’t sponsored us yet.  JG shares a powerful sales lesson and we kick it up a notch to make ourselves irresistible to their shrewd business and marketing minds!

Now back to the matter at hand!

In this episode, JG shares the alternative to being triggered and sucked into a typhoon of negativity and Steve shares a simple and powerful mathematical equation to keep you calm and help you convert the stress of a negative person into the amusement of a movie!  …and he proves that Jason is horrible at math!

Episode 22 – How do you turn an idea into a reality?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Aaron’s question:

How do you turn an idea into a reality?

We may be going a little loopy today as we play a game of “Name that Beatle” AND JG does a mentalist trick on Steve that is sure to offend any real magicians who watch the show!

Once we got over our shenanigans, we dove into Aaron’s fantastic question about taking action to execute on an idea.

We have ALL experienced having an amazing idea for a book or a business or some other adventure that we get really excited about and then, the resistance creeps in and we are left with one more unfinished dream or project.

JG and Steve are here for you and share the way they go from “Fantasy” to “PLANtasy”.

Steve outlines his low-tech, old school and super effective way to brainstorming ideas on action steps and JG shares the exact method he used to create a 3-month training program in a very similar fashion!

AND we may have an idea for yet another sponsor since Kelloggs still hasn’t called.  What do you gals and guys think about our new prospect?

It’s time for YOU to weigh in…

Drop us a comment below and tell us what you do to overcome resistance and get into action on your own ideas.

Episode 20 – How can I be playful in a business setting without looking unprofessional?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Steve’s question:

“How can I be playful in a business setting without looking unprofessional?”

Playfulness in a professional environment – does it mean you should walk into a business meeting and start goofing off and being a class clown like JG did for the first 18 years of his life? 

Find out today as we tease out the SPIRIT of play vs. the action of playing and what the goal of playfulness is for Steve.

JG also shares how his version of playfulness helped him to connect more authentically and to strengthen his relationships with colleagues and clients back in his corporate days.

And we give a great big shout out of appreciation to Inner Circle Members Jackie and Jenelle for their love and support of the show!

P.S. – Stay tuned to the end for proof that you can neither dress JG up nor take him anywhere.  Watch as he ruins his workspace and invites all of the ants in his building to feast on his office.

We want to hear from you!

How have you been able to balance a playful way of being with a professional demeanor in your own life?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Caroline’s question:

“Why do you think some people experience real transformation in their lives and others don’t?”

JG embraces his inner “Rainbow Rasta” as the team talk about the ONE thing they each think is vital to real transformation in our lives (both to occur and to stick!).

Also, Steve answers the question of “Why you NEED to change”, JG talks about the two (seemingly opposite) sides of the transformation coin AND Steve teaches JG some French!

PLUS, we shout out two of our amazing Inner Circle members, Mandy and Christina who we are so grateful to for helping spread the word about our show!

Episode 17 – How do I strengthen my mindset and believe more in myself?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Malcolm’s question:

“How do I strengthen my mindset and believe more in myself?”

Besides having TWO new possible leads for sponsorships (since Kelloggs is STILL dragging their feet) we also talk about the beliefs, worries and judgments we may carry with us when we try something for the first time, like starting a new business.

Plus JG and Steve share two alternatives to believing in yourself that are both powerful and practical – IF you are willing to test them out!

Tell us what YOU think…

Have you ever tried to uncover evidence from your past successes as a way to jumpstart your activity on a new project or opportunity?

Where else do you get stuck on “believing” in yourself that holds you back from taking action?
