Another Selfish Episode with Naketa R. Thigpen: Justified Lies
According to Google, a white lie is “a harmless or trivial lie; especially one told to avoid hurting someone's feelings.” There are many reasons why we justify lying to others and ourselves. Sometimes we think that doing this will avoid awkward confrontations. Many times, we’re just not ready to handle the truth. <br /><br />Today, I’m going to share my health problem -- a rare autoimmune condition that I like to refer to as my “superpower” -- that led me to justify lying to my husband and myself. I’m going to share the possible reasons why you justify lying, how justifying lies apply in business, and how to break free from this compulsion. <br /><br />Thank you for listening! <br /><br />Send your balance challenge questions over to me at <a href="mailto:asknaketa@thigpro.com">asknaketa@thigpro.com</a> <br /><br />Access Show Notes: <a href="http://thigpro.com/another-selfish-episode-naketa-r-thigpen-justified-lies">http://thigpro.com/another-selfish-episode-naketa-r-thigpen-justified-lies</a><br /><br />Connect on Twitter at <a href="http://www.twitter.com/balanceboldly">www.twitter.com/balanceboldly</a>

Episode 30 The Shameless Powerplay of Sexual Assault Predators
There is a hot and trending issue about the sexual assault case filed against the producer, director, and Miramax co-founder Harvey Weinstein. Wherever you are in the world, sexual assault is a grave offense that is mostly left unreported, especially if the aggressor is a very powerful and influential person. Sexist language and victim blaming are some of the unfortunate natural responses of the society that make most victims withdraw and suffer in silence rather than endure more shame and criticism by others.<br /><br />Today, I’m going to share the truth about the shamelessness of power plays, which is a means to satisfy people’s cravings for power. I also explain how the shame and powerlessness of the victims affect their balance and relationships - both personal and professional - and how the support of others for the victims or potential victims play a significant role in helping stop or prevent this abominable misconduct.<br /><br />Access Show Notes for additional information at <a href="http://www.balanceboldly.com">www.balanceboldly.com</a>

Episode 28 Be the Unapologetic You
When on a plane, it is a rule of thumb that you first put on your oxygen mask before helping others with theirs. By prioritizing your own need for oxygen, only then will you have the ability and the strength to help someone else. This is the same principle that we’ve been discussing all throughout Selfish September to help you understand the redefinition of selfish, become aware of what avoiding bad confrontation can do for you, and knowing how you can protect your “me time.”<br /><br />On today’s episode, I share why you should be your unapologetic self, and how to use your passion in finding your purpose. I also explain how you can dig to find your ultimate purpose and eventually do better and be better in your relationships and your business.<br /><br />“If Jesus can take time out, what makes you think you can’t?” - Naketa Thigpen<br /><br />Access Show Notes for additional information  at <a href="http://www.balanceboldly.com">www.balanceboldly.com</a>

Episode 27 Setting Boundaries to Protect Your Me Time
Many people complain of burnout because of busyness but refuse to make time and prioritize their “me time.” Allotting exclusive time to yourself allows you to recharge and refuel so you can be the best you in your life, your relationships, and your business. To be able to do this consistently and effectively, you have to be strategic and deliberate when establishing good boundaries to protect your me time.<br /><br />On today’s episode, I’m going to share the different ways to create boundaries so you can do and accomplish the things that matter the most. I also discuss a system you can use to gauge any diversion and differentiate distractions from urgencies. Since you can’t change anyone but you, I also share specific practices you can try to protect your “me time” at work and at home.<br /><br />“Your boundaries are the most essential thing that you can do for yourself to really make sure that you’re keeping you on the top of that list.” - Naketa Thigpen<br /><br />Access Show Notes for additional information at <a href="http://www.balanceboldly.com">www.balanceboldly.com</a>

That’s why many doctors warn people to avoid stress-inducing activities.<br /><br />It’s the concept of avoiding by confronting.<br /><br />On today’s episode, I’m sharing this concept with you and how you can avoid stress-induced illnesses by identifying and confronting the triggers of your stress. I’ll also share how confronting burden and competition can play a role in your stress levels and what you can do to avoid them.<br /><br /><br />“We forget how helpful we could be if we could just take care of ourselves.” - Naketa Thigpen<br /><br />Access Show Notes for additional information at <a href="http://www.balanceboldly.com">www.balanceboldly.com</a>

Episode 13-How To Gain Perspective and Thrive as an Entrepreneur
Do you find yourself feeling one sided while among a certain group of people that only know you as the person you used to be? Now that we have added an extra layer of success to ourselves, we have to break those expectations and start seeing things from different perspectives. <br /> <br />The shame that comes right before the success of many entrepreneurs is embedded within our perception of how we view the complexities of our lives while we work towards our goals. Although we understand that success isn’t over night and there will be a curvy and often steep road others view our endeavors as less socially acceptable. For example, when someone asks you about your business venture, the first thing they ask is, “How much money have you made?” Versus, the socially acceptable action, attending college, people ask, “How is school going?” They never ask about your failures like they do with entrepreneurs. With perspective we find that both situations offer valuable learning experiences, but I have to tell you with my 12+ years in college, I learned way more in the first 6-8 months of being an entrepreneur. <br /> <br />Joe Pardo joins us today as we talk about adding perspective to his family business, his past life experiences and going and being Super Joe without shame. Joe Pardo proves when you work for something that you are passionate about, you don’t have to try and be super, it just comes with the territory. <br /><br />Join in on the conversation as we learn to #shaketheshame as entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial leaders....<br /><br />For more information and to access show notes, head over to <a href="http://www.balanceboldly.com">www.balanceboldly.com</a><br /><br />Thanks for listening!

Episode 07-Invite Change to a Seat at the Table
Are you tired of not pulling the trigger on things you have planned for so long? A paraphrased recommendation from Tony Robbins is to learn the importance of asking quality questions that lead to actionable answers. Instead of focusing all of our energy on the problems we are having, we are better off redirecting our energy towards the solutions. Join us as we discuss inviting change into our lives and what it means for the people who we are connected too. <br /><br />More often than not, we do not ask ourselves the right questions because we are afraid that the answer will mean we have to commit our time and effort to getting things done. Today we are taking a deep swift dive into the possible reasons you’re afraid to open the door to the change (or change agents) you need. Let’s avoid questions that lead to answers that are rooted in fear and ultimately set you up for failure and ask, the hidden questions that unlock the path to our success. What are those changes that you're going to have to make in order to make room for the success that you want? Who are you giving the keys to your future and happiness?<br /><br />Thank you for listening. <br /><br />Send your balance challenge questions over to me at <a href="mailto:asknaketa@thigpro.com">asknaketa@thigpro.com</a> <br />Access Show Notes and more for this episode at <a href="http://www.balanceboldly.com">www.balanceboldly.com</a> <br />Connect on Twitter <a href="http://www.twitter.com/balanceboldly">www.twitter.com/balanceboldly</a>
