I am beyond excited about today’s podcast. My guest, Curt Steinhorst, loves Jesus, is married, has two young boys, and has been our friend for almost 20 years.

Inspiring Better Work Habits, Focusing Your Team, and Getting Stuff Done in the Constantly Connected Workplace. He is on a mission to rescue us from our distracted selves.  After years studying the impact of tech on human behavior, Curt founded Focuswise, a consultancy that equips organizations to overcome the distinct challenges of the constantly-connected workplace.

Diagnosed with ADD as a child, Curt knows intimately the challenges companies face to keep the attention of today’s distracted workforce and customer.

Curt’s unique insight and entertaining speaking style have captured the attention of audiences worldwide. He speaks more than seventy-five times a year to organizations that include everyone from global leadership associations and nonprofits to Fortune 100 companies.

During our interview, Curt gave me his definition of thriving from both a corporate and personal perspective. Both definitions point to becoming aware of living in the moment, rather than being frustrated about where we may be going. Honestly, my conversation with Curt was so eye-opening as we talked about the impact social media has in shaping our relationships, marriages, and communities. The digital world allows us an instant connection, but can also leave us feeling very lonely.

I know you will enjoy this fascinating interview with Curt Steinhorst.

1024 683 Thriving Beyond Belief

As we continue into the new year,  I am so excited about the inspiring story my guest shared with me today.  My guest today, Katie Bryant, is married, has three kids, and lives in Rochester, New York. She is a Fitness and Lifestyle Coach, but honestly, listening to her story and how she got to where she is today is so riveting, it brought me to tears.

Katie shares that she had a vision of what her marriage would look like, but didn’t realize God had a very different plan.  After her third child was born, she began to fight depression, anxiety and struggled to understand her purpose. To most people, her life looked perfect, but inside Katie was spiraling down and lived in such a low place, she decided she was going to end her life.

Miraculously, her beautiful children would be part of God’s healing journey.  Katie ended up in the hospital, heavily medicated, and began a six-year journey to discover a new life God had planned.  The road was difficult and not very clear after coming home from the hospital.  Katie shared how she started overeating, drinking alcohol, and gained 50 pounds.  She tried every gimmick and diet, but two words kept coming in front of her, CLEAN EATING. She began reaching out to this community and over the next months found support from others who wanted to cheer each other on.

Katie admits her walk has been a difficult road, but today as a Fitness and Lifestyle Coach one of the questions she asks women is,  “Why do we work so hard to cover our shame and vulnerability?”  Katie’s definition of thrive is “living my best life, not what society thinks, and helping others do the same.” She used to end her day with the thought, “I’m still not good enough,” but today, she ends her day knowing she has tried in every area to the best of her ability.

Katie made a decision to change her mindset and today her mantra is “I NEVER QUIT.” She focuses on her journey, and to be the best person she can be. I hope Katie’s story will be a blessing to you today.

Here’s my interview with Katie Bryant.
