My first episode of the Good Intentions show is out now, and despite being nervous and saying ‘um’ more times than I care to admit, I’m happy that this project is out in the world! In the first episode we dive into the inspiration behind the show’s name, what it means to provide solutions, and what viewers can expect from the show. You can watch the 10 minute video here, or read on for an overview of the episode.
If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know that video is not my usual medium. I’m a writer, but something has been urging me to do this. In late January, I decided I was just going to do it, just pull the trigger and do a video show. And with this show, I’m going to encourage you to pursue opportunities, to take risks, and to problem solve.
My number one goal is to teach people to problem solve. Does that mean I always have answers? Heck no, but I want to help people.
I named my show Good Intentions after something Ed Mylett said once, but the reason I’m focusing on problem solving can also be attributed to Ed. I remember Ed saying something to the effect that people are just talking about the problem, people are stressing out about the problem, and they’re focusing on the problem instead of talking about solutions.
So Ed’s thing is once you’ve identified a problem, stop talking about the problem, stop thinking about the problem, and immediately devote 100% of your energy to looking for a solution. That doesn’t mean that the first thing that you think of is automatically going to be the solution, but you’re moving in the right direction, because a solution based individual is not going to sit there and ruminate, or call their friends and keep talking about this issue.
Did you know when you do that you’re actually giving the problem more energy and you’re giving it a bigger space in your mind? You’re blowing it up to be bigger than it is instead of relying on your power to find solutions and to be open to possibility. What if inside this problem there could be an opportunity for change, a challenge that might help you grow, or a way for something great to happen despite the challenge, heartache, or lesson attached.
The next episode will be part one of a two part segment. Episodes two and three will be on how to change your life in 30 days for free. We’ll dive into two different things that you can do to change your life in 30 days. Stay tuned!
