What Are You Discovering About Yourself // A Group Chat with guest Chris Martin

Episode 342. Aired April 29, 2020.

With new situations, come new discoveries. What have you discovered about yourself during the last month?
Has what you need changed or what you thought you needed become irrelevant?
How has your purpose or direction changed?

I opened up the floor and we talked about what have we learned about ourselves during the Covid-19 Pandemic, things we need, things we don’t.

Self-discovery goes hand-in-hand with being pushed into new situations. Analyzing why we react certain ways and why somethings bother us and other things don’t. How we give grace more easily during uncertain times when people are scared and hurting. But maybe you have had time to contemplate a new direction. If that’s you, I want to have you on to talk about it.

14:16:21 From diane gibbs : Thanks Dave!!!
14:17:25 From John Ingles : Naomi, you insight definitely strikes home with me. It’s not what you say but how you say it. and you’re right, there is no way to slurp those word back up once they are out there. Thank you for sharing.
14:18:06 From Naomi Gee : Yes John. 🙂
14:18:10 From Dimitris Rusty Lazarou : diane is a heavy metal fan
14:18:20 From Dimitris Rusty Lazarou : don’t listen to what she says she doesn’t listen to music
14:19:05 From diane gibbs : That’s right dimi!!!
14:20:33 From Brian Yohn : Diane is a shark!
14:20:47 From jason frostholm : I have the teeth dreams, they are weird.
14:20:49 From Raijeim Douglas : lol brian
14:21:19 From Naomi Gee To All Panelists : Hahaha. #zoomlife – I hear my husbands super loud voice just started reading Harry Potter to our 8month old in the other room.
14:21:31 From Amber Cornett : That’s so sweet!
14:21:38 From John Ingles : oh my gosh Diane… I’m lost more teeth in my dreams than I actually have… horrible feeling.
14:22:02 From diane gibbs : Do you have that dream too John?
14:22:09 From Raijeim Douglas : the teeth dreams might be that you are taking on to much jason
14:22:12 From David Walker To All Panelists : That is a very real thing….I never researched the meaning behind it
14:22:39 From David Walker To All Panelists : But it was quite alarming
14:23:04 From John Ingles : yes… more than I care to admin. though it has been a while. Now I won’t be able to sleep tonight.. haha
14:24:53 From Tony Lockhart To All Panelists : Completely Agree! I find Passion work leads to the best freelance clients!
14:25:52 From Doc To All Panelists : i struggle with that balance of “make you love and find your tribe” and the I put this out and “my tribe hasn’t shown up”
14:26:25 From Naomi Gee : I agree. I have that voice about my project that will kickoff some recurring rev for my business. “No one will use this service.” “Why would they sign up for this.” But have to keep moving forward to find out.
14:27:50 From Mariana Flores To All Panelists : I have also started a personal project to try and use humor (very dark humor) as a way to deal with all of this… I was surprised to see people connect to it in a way I wouldn’t imagine!
14:27:51 From Doc To All Panelists : true
14:28:06 From Chris Martin : @Doc – I hear you. It is tough to do the work you love and wonder if you are making an impact. I’m just about 4 years in on my podcast and I have incredible moments of doubt with whether the audience is growing or not… But then I have small reminders that people are listening and getting value from it.
14:28:13 From diane gibbs : Ooh I have got to see that Mariana, can you share your instagram handle
14:28:18 From Doc To All Panelists : Do you have checklists that you use to qualify those items @Naomi
14:28:35 From Naomi Gee : Mariana, can you share your handle to see that project?
14:28:58 From André Caetano : you go Mariana!
14:29:01 From Tony Lockhart To All Panelists : Yes @mariana, dark humor is awesome haha. I learned that was my niche as well.
14:29:09 From Raijeim Douglas : andre g. I have a new granddaughter I have been warned to not swear but I was in the military and its been hard.
14:29:15 From Van Cooley To All Panelists : +1 Dave Ko: <3 Diane’s new frames.
14:29:53 From Chris Martin : @andre, I so admire that ability to dive in. 🙂
14:30:29 From John Ingles : I think there are several people posting just to the panelist and not to the attendees. Though, that may be deliberate we are seeing half the conversations. 🙂
14:30:30 From Mariana Flores To All Panelists : It started so much as “just for fun” project that I haven’t even uploaded it to my instagram! I’m just sharing it on my personal facebook page, because that felt like the most laid back option – and it worked. But I will start upload the translated english version to my instagram stories today or tomorrow, at @marianafloresart
14:31:07 From Van Cooley : Ooh.. thanks John ingles!
14:31:17 From Van Cooley : No wonder haha
14:31:27 From David Ko : Van!
14:31:27 From John Ingles : 🙂
14:31:36 From Van Cooley : Asking for help is not easy, @Andre. It’s a practice. Definitely requires letting go of ego.
14:32:13 From Mariana Flores To All Panelists : Asking for help is to admit you are out of control. As a control freak, I do so relate to you Andre
14:32:23 From Andre Gagiano To All Panelists : @vancooley yes you are so right about that
14:32:32 From BW : Yohn is in the house
14:32:42 From John Ingles : Andre. I have high respect for all you are doing for your family. Quite a challenge for you.
14:32:44 From David Walker To All Panelists : Hey Brian!
14:32:45 From Van Cooley : (Again) Hey Dave! Hey Dimi! 😀
14:32:51 From Doc To All Panelists : Hey @BrianYohn. I love you.
14:32:51 From Andre Gagiano To All Panelists : @Mariana its a struggle for sure
14:32:52 From Dimitris Rusty Lazarou : VAN!
