Summary: In episode 81 I had Braden Campbell on the Podcast In his episode we talked about a lot of topics. In this blog I wanted to highlight a few of the topics we talked about (To watch or listen to the full episode the links will be below!)  The topics I will be highlighting in this blog are , The lessons of life, Living in the present, Showing up and That your existence matters.  Let’s Dive in 


The first thing I want to touch on is lessons in life.  Lessons in life are different for everyone.  One thing that Braden said about the struggles he went through is everything was a lesson in his eyes. He has looked at life problems through a positive lens vs a negative perspective.  I think that is advice we can all learn from. The easier route can be to become a victim in situations, to say “Poor me”.  However, the way that you are going to grow and learn lessons  in life is to look at the positive in situations.  


Living in the Present… this is something that I believe everyone has struggles with. It is easy to get distracted and let your thoughts wander to the past or the future.  Staying in the present will help you feel less discouraged and help you with your steps to move forward.  Braden said that staying present has helped him to not overthink his next step moving forward.  He believes that as he lives in the present that the next step will fall into place.  I agree with that statement.  So many times people want to achieve goals and get stuck in the fear of the future instead of just taking that first step then letting whatever is supposed to happen, happen.  If you are struggling with living in the present, start by challenging the thoughts that are keeping you from living in the present.  


Showing up. Showing up means that you are putting in your 100% in all areas of your life.  Your 100% may vary from day to day but as long as you put in all you got everyday you are still going to reach your goals.  Braden’s take on this topic I absolutely loved. His message was that if you are living at your best then you will see a positive change in your day to day life and the lives around you.  


The last topic I want to highlight in this blog is that : Your Existence Matters! You are on this planet for a reason. You have so much to live for.  Braden has had struggles with mental health and shared his struggles during the episode.  One of his main messages was that YOU Matter.  All of us at some point in our lives feel lost or that we aren’t good enough. I love that his message was about pushing through those negative thoughts and that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
