#19 THE WALL ST OF LIFE

So, it’s the last Wednesday episode of Season 2. You’ll still hear my dulcet tones on Monday Mocha for the next few weeks but our special time together on Wednesday will be back in July.

I love sharing my Wednesdays with you. It’s a day I look forward to most and I love that people from all over the world; from places that I’ve only ever dreamed of listen to The Ginni Show. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

This episode takes a little transactional turn in the sense that we look at ourselves and how we interpret love and how we use that to essentially “trade,” or interact with out acts of humanity. What’s really in our emotional bank accounts? Why do we always deposit and withdraw such emotions to “trade,” with?

I hope this episode serves you in learning a little more about yourself, what emotions we tend to turn to when we feel an uncomfortable situation and how we can filter out what’s good for us to what just is.

 

Wednesdays will be back in July my friends, but until then, enjoy the Monday Mocha episodes. Please be safe and happy 🙂

#18 MINDFUL SPEECH

Words are such powerful tools. We use them everyday. In speech. In text. In thought. In almost every human interaction. Yet sometimes we forget just how much we take words for granted and how impactful they can be on others and ultimately shape a belief they have.

This podcast is dedicated to everyone who’s ever felt a little different. Anyone who’s searched for that understanding and may not have received the kind of words they hoped for.

#17 MENU, PLEASE?

It’s the battle I’ve faced most of my life. The thing I love more than anything in the world, that was engrained so deeply in my culture and something that I love sharing with my loved ones…my favourite four letter f word…..Food.

There’s things about Food that I love and things about my love for food that I have used as comfort for other things. This episode, we feast…on all the thought forms are we need to cultivate health and happiness.

#16 APPROVED

As kids who enter the world and go through brand new experiences, the memories we form pave the way to our beliefs about ourselves. Generally speaking, a lot of these beliefs evolve around how much we want to be liked – how much we want that fellow human approval. After all, it’s apart of humanity to want to relate and connect with our own species. The issues that arise from this need for approval is that we compromise so much of our own inner voice and needs and fill our minds and energies with resentment.

Oprah calls it the “disease to please,” and when we place ourselves in a position to seek approval or behave in a way just so others will like us, over time resentment builds.

This episode goes through the patterns around approval and where these usually form – home and school; the things we do so that our parents and the cool kids at school like us.

#15 EXCUSE…..ME?

Are you liking The Ginni Show? It would mean the world to me if you gave it five stars. Click here to leave your review.

Now..onto this episode. Are you constantly told that you’re getting in the way of yourself? And then it’s hard to understand what that actually means?

What is it about you that is getting in the way of yourself? What are some of the thought patterns, beliefs and behaviours we subconsciously engage in or are programmed within us that stops us from living the happiest and healthiest life we could?

This podcast is a little more serious but I’m also on the lookout to bring as much JOY as I can so am always finding ways to do so.

#14 HAPPINESS IS ICE CREAM. OR IS IT?

Are you happy? What are some of the things about you that make you happy? And in your life that make you happy?

Sometimes happiness is a projection of what others predicate for us. These others can be anyone from our parents, grandparents, teachers, cousins to our school peers. We find ourselves trying to squeeze into a mould that simply isn’t made for us. This applies to almost everything about us. The way we think, the way we behave, what we do and don’t do. It’s interesting how much this projection is a loud tape recorder in our heads.

This episode, we delve into why sometimes what we feel makes us happiness, is the very thing that leads us to unhappiness.

WHEN YOU TALK A LOT

I used to be very quiet in my pre-teen years. I was the quiet, unassuming student; the one that would be called “oh so obedient,” during parent/teacher interviews.

Even in my first month of kindergarten, I was so shy that the teachers tried to get me to talk by distracting me with sesame street toys and shiny objects.

Then one day, I was on the school playground and it was my turn to go on the swing. The teachers were delighted because they all seemed to be playing a game of, “Let’s see who can get Ginni to talk.”

I was the shy, chubby Sri Lankan girl who kept to herself and played quietly with the other kids. One of the teachers began her schmoozing; buttering me up so I would finally saying something out aloud. She tried asking me about television, my parents, food – she played all the right cards. Then, she finally exhausted all attempts and said, “Do you talk at all, Ginni?”

I finally gave in and shouted “Yes!” This was met with a look of relief on her face. She probably had gloating points for a whole year and was made the “Diversity Co-Ordinator,” at that school after that moment. You go girl.

Since then, for me, it’s gone from “Let’s see who can make Ginni talk,” to “Let’s see who can shut Ginni up.” What a journey.

And the same goes for podcasting! A lot of entrepreneurs now are turning to podcasting. It’s a great way to share the great knowledge you already have and network with other professionals, experts and colleagues in your industry.

As one of my favourite leaders – Gary Vaynerchuck says; with business these days; it’s likely that you’re a media company first. And podcasting is one of the many, many digital mediums we can use to be that kind of company. To commentate, inform and share key points of information about our industry.

Having worked for both live to air broadcast radio at commercial and community stations, I’ve found that podcasting is a great platform that breaks the usual censorship and red tape you have to be mindful of when it comes to the industry regulators the station faces. How you distribute your content and allocate time for your guests and sponsors is entirely up to you – if there is no affiliation with another station or broadcaster.

Podcasting allows you to share all your information with potential customers and existing clients in a more personalised way. The human voice has an influence and a tone of emotion that cannot be conveyed by text – no matter how much you can channel Hemmingway or Shakespeare in your writing.  This way, you have your listener’s attention. You have an exclusive human connection.

This is the place where The Ginni Show is different from your entrepreneurial podcast. Firstly, the content on the show is not really selling you any product, other than stories of myself and ridiculously large family. It’s these things that got you to my site and to the podcast in the first place. The fact that you take time out to listen to the show;to listen to me. In my shows I try to provide content in a way that’s unique but also universal in how it connects us all through it’s themes. Even though I’m telling my story – in my story, there is a shade of your story. That’s the most valuable connection we will have; more than any further leads or revenue; the connection of humanity.

 

#9 BUILDING WALLS

Over the past three weeks, the world has been either in a state of shock, fear…some are seeking to be positive and others are just in a total state of W.T.F.

I didn’t want to make this podcast about politics, but instead I wanted to use what was going on around us to take time to see what was reflected within us.

With the constant fear inspiring rhetoric we hear in our news feeds and from our leaders, of course, it’s natural to be freaking the F out.

Sometimes the only way to combat such negativity is to start with ourselves. See where it is within us the places we started to build walls around our hearts and our lives. Where did we become intolerant of others out of anger or hate? Because they shared a difference of opinion or political belief? At what time did we separate ourselves from everyone else? Where did we fail to be the best person we could be and use love, peace and thoughtfulness as the foundation. If each and every one of us begin to cultivate that kind of unity within – what is without will begin to reflect that.

It’s the series finale of The Ginni Show and I wanted to say thank you to all of you for tuning in, for inviting me into your spaces, your homes, your cars and your bathrooms – Hola to the toilet phone users out there. Laugh and love that little bit harder and take extra care of yourselves and one another these holidays.

I’ll see you in January 2017.
