Everyday Excellence

By Jode Allen

Join your host, Jode Allen, as we explore what it means for the ordinary, everyday person to excel in healthy, meaningful and powerful ways. We'll dismiss the hype of the super-achievers, high-power performers, and Pinterest Perfect comparisons that often lead to feelings of overwhelm, shame and failure. An excellent life is not just reserved for the gifted, the rich, or the beautiful. It is available to every one of us. And it comes through understanding and practicing simple principles of excellence every day.

Episode 5 - Are You Coachable?

Episode 5 - Are You Coachable?

Finding real and lasting change in our lives requires that we commit to mastery--mastery of different areas and aspects of our life. Not just repeating the same conventional wisdom and practices that got us to where we are now. Reaching toward excellence will require that we quit thinking that we know it all or that we can master what we need through our own experience. It will require that we align ourselves with others who have achieved what we want to achieve and are doing what we want to do. We can gain decades and centuries of experience and wisdom and accelerate our own results to a matter of weeks, months or short years by finding the right experts, coaches and mentors to guide us. But the big question is, are you coachable? How willing are you to learn from those who you engage to teach you? In this episode, I will cover 4 levels of coachability and offer some ideas for you to best take advantage of the opportunities that lie all around us to gain valuable knowledge and experience in the shortest amount of time.

I also invite you to allow me to offer you the opportunity to take the Habit Finder Assessment. It is a tool that I use with all  my coaching clients to help quickly target habits and patterns of thinking that may be sabotaging your growth or gifts that you may be under-utilizing. Right now you can take the assessment and get a free debriefing session on the assessment results with me by going to I'm confident you will be illuminated by the process.

Episode 4 - Victor or Victim: Taking full control of your life.

Are you a victim or Victor? Do you know what it means to take 100% responsibility and control of your life? In this episode I will talk about the difference between the victim and the victor mindset and how we can learn to make the circumstances that we want in our lives and not be a victim to our circumstances or what happens to us. I'm going to talk about how taking responsibility is different than taking blame or giving blame. By taking responsibility we empower ourselves 2 reach for excellence regardless of what happens to us.

Episode 3 - A structure For A Successful Life

When seeking to create a more excellent life, it is important to create a structure to guide how you implement, monitor and improve your philosophy of life. Without structure, life will just become chaotic and mediocre. A structure gives you the ability to intentionally identify where you need to focus your efforts and what actions will be most effective in helping your create a healthy, successful life. There are many different and good structures that you can build your life around. In this episode I will share with you the structure that I have developed that helps me stay focused and balanced (as best as I can) in keeping my life moving toward excellence every day. It consists of a synergy between Healthy Mind and Body, Healthy Relationships, and Healthy Finances.
