The Gift of Choosing Joy in Every Moment: Pamella Horton on the Your Messy Brilliance™ Show
I’m so happy to bring you this conversation in the latest installment of the Your Messy Brilliance™ Show with my friend and Featured Truthteller, Pamella Horton! Just in time for the “holidaze,” Pamella shares vital information on how we can connect with our bodies to prevent burnout and stress, and to really figure out what the heck is happening just below the surface!
Pamella is a self-proclaimed “International Cultural Engagement Specialist,” a title I love and that she goes into detail about in our conversation. She is also an Employee Engagement Speaker and the founder of Maven’s Connections and the callingtherealYOU Podcast.
With an expertise in Mindset, Well-being, and Organizational Development, Pamella has helped thousands of employees live happier, healthier, more successful lives. She bridges the gap between a mediocre work experience and an extraordinary one for both employees and employers. She also provides a blueprint for companies to create and sustain a highly engaged business environment that results in acquiring top talent, improved employee retention, and increased profit margins.
As I’ve discovered, if you hang out with Pamella long enough, you will find yourself believing in yourself even more and knowing that you can achieve anything. “Awareness is the number one key,” she explained to me. That is, in order to combat burnout and get on the right track to finding and expressing your passion, you have to first “acknowledge the fact that you are firing on all cylinders but are missing most of the targets,” she says.
She also encourages people to give themselves rewards for the baby steps, and to recognize that simply choosing to do things differently can change our lives. Because we learn through practice and repetition, Pamella also offers a great suggestion for connecting even more with our desires: putting sticky notes containing the messages of what we want to integrate all over everything! I hope you’re as inspired as I am!
