Episode Summary

The most memorable life lessons are often be found in the "Can you believe I did that category!" This experience is no different. I will unpack how lessons learned from the escapades of an impromptu 4" heel walking excursion marry so well with "The Gambler" by Kenny Rogers. Be inspired as well continue our journey living with victory in mind. Happy Listening!


[00:00:43] Introduction to the show.

[00:01:47] Today, our conversation begs to find out exactly what four inch heels have in common with Kenny Roger’s “The Gambler” song. 

[00:02:11] What tune and lyrics are being referenced to - a cappella rendition.

[00:02:58] Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. - Enter the 4" heel story. It was all about looking good.

[00:04:42] Consequences of the 4" heels start piling up Clippety-clop style.

[00:05:43] When wise choices are in short supply.

[00:07:15] Cute had left the building.

[00:07:46] My toes! My toes! Did I even own toes?

[00:08:21] So regarding The Gambler song...

[00:09:02] And I didn't know when to fold.

[00:09:41] I rationally cancelled Rational thought out. 

[00:10:41] But, instead of walking away, like me, we might keep pushing into what we're doing when we know it wasn't good for us in the first place.

[00:11:26] To hold or not to hold? To walk away or stay?

[00:12:29] Decision making - learning the skills on how to listen to ourselves.

[00:13:21] Learning to cast our vision. 

[00:14:19] It’s all about being honest with ourselves.

[00:14:57] We need to work on taking steps that are gonna benefit us in the long run.

[00:15:29] As painful as it was, I love, love, love the lesson of the heels because it's a tangible experience of how it's okay to fail.

[00:16:13] What do I need to walk away from? 

[00:16:39] Don’t forgot about the fact that ya need to know how ta run. 

[00:16:58] And you never count your money when you're sitting at the table, there'll be time enough for counting when the deal is done. So you are the only one who knows how and when to evaluate some situations.

[00:17:32] “Just keep swimming, swimmin’ swimmin’…" just keep at it, living in and walking with victory in mind.
