Week 4 Podcast

Listen below to our latest podcast for Levels 2 and 3 (please note that Steve mentions it's Week 3, though we're technically on Week 4). We're excited for Wendy Backlund to join Steve on this podcast too! 

This is a session answering the questions you recently submitted, listed below. Remember, we only have ONE MORE PODCAST FOR THIS YEAR'S FAST!

Submit more questions about the negativity fast journey, or questions you have about hope, joy, beliefs, declarations, etc. to fastandfeast@ignitinghope.com. Steve and Wendy will answer as many as they can in a podcast each week!

Questions Answered on This Podcast:

  1. What do you believe causes anxiety and post-traumatic stress and how can you get delivered from it? 
  2. I’m going through a grieving process and would like some advice. Psychology tells us that we go through stages of different emotions (shock, sadness and anger for example) when we have experienced a loss, and it's unhealthy to deny them. Is this a contradiction to this positivity feast? What’s your advice on how to deal with emotions?
  3. What is the best way to grow in healthy self-esteem and worth? Can you recommend a resource?

Questions Answered on This Podcast:

  1. Would you explain "capturing our thoughts"? To me it's always sounded like trying to catch the wind. How do you do capture your thoughts in a practical way? 
  2. What do you mean by "success is a state of being" and what does this look like in a person's life? If success is not the goal, what is the overall goal in life?
  3. How does one practically deal with negative triggers from the past to forgive and let go of hurts? What has worked well for you?
  4. How do I stay authentic when people ask me how I am doing? Is it lying to say I am fine when I am emotionally struggling?
  5.  How do I stay positive when I see so many things on the news that are negative – things like ISIS, the economy, governmental decisions that I am in disagreement with?
