The Power Paradigm with Radiah Rhodes & Dr. Roni Ellington | Radiah’s Q2 Inner Game Plan™

A few weeks ago we talked about Dr. Roni’s Q2 Inner Game Plan and how she was committed to becoming a First Lady of Leisure and Love. This week, it’s Radiah’s turn to reflect on how she has been showing up in 2021 so far and who she wants to be for this next quarter. 

The process of creating and implementing an Inner Game Plan is life-changing. It uplevels your intention, your commitment to that intention, and to who you want to show up as. The shift it requires of your mindset and your actions trickles into every aspect of your life.

Listen in today as Radiah walks us through her Q2 Inner Game Plan and tells us what her game, The Serenity Code, is all about. We invite you to use the plans we share as inspiration for what your own plan could look like. Who do you need to be to have the life you want? What steps are you taking to become that upleveled version of yourself? We’re exploring these questions and more in today’s episode. 

 

What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • Why fitness goals don’t have to relate to weight loss.
  • How Radiah’s Game Plan has changed since the start of the year.
  • What draws Radiah to gardening.
  • Why the name of her Game Plan is The Serenity Code.

The Power Paradigm with Tawana Bhagwat, Radiah Rhodes & Dr. Roni Ellington | Martyrdom to Motherhood

The paradigm of how we mother often gets conflated with martyrdom, but these are not the same things. Society praises women who sacrifice and suffer for their children, yet also demands that we don’t raise them to be entitled.

With Mother’s Day around the corner, we’re exploring what it really means to mother. How do we embody motherhood and where do we derive that identity from? The way we think about a good mother in our culture doesn’t empower her, so why do we continue to lean into it?

Listen in today as we discuss the choice that is motherhood and why no one is actually forcing you to give anything up. You have the option to be present to being a mother and not present to the struggling and sacrificing. We’re sharing some advice for mothers who feel like they don’t have a choice but to sacrifice themselves and how our personal fulfillment benefits our children.

 

What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • How society glorifies the sacrifice of motherhood.
  • That it is possible to shepherd your children through the world without sacrifice.
  • What helped Dr. Roni reframe her whole motherhood.
  • Our advice for women struggling with feeling like they don’t have a choice.
  • How we cultivate entitlement in our children.

The Power Paradigm with Tawana Bhagwat, Radiah Rhodes & Dr. Roni Ellington | When the Best Action is Inaction

For high-achieving women, taking action is how we get things done. It’s how we lead movements, build empires, and create success. We do it all. But what if taking action isn’t the best way to get what you want? 

Without inaction, you don’t leave room for possibility. You don’t empower those around you to step up to the plate. You actually do more to achieve less. For many of us, the idea of giving up control and taking inaction seems impossible, but we’re here to tell you that sometimes, it’s the best move you can make.

Listen in today as we explore the times when inaction is better for your game than action, and how to know the difference. Understanding who you are and the game you want to play is key, so we’re sharing how you can get a better sense of these things and see if action or inaction will get you closer to the life you want.

 

What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • How to know when inaction is the right thing to do.
  • What happens when you’re always the one doing the most.
  • Why being busy can actually take you out of the life you want.
  • Why high-achievers struggle with giving up control.
  • How games allow you to go all-in on yourself.

The Power Paradigm with Tawana Bhagwat, Radiah Rhodes & Dr. Roni Ellington | The Power of Presence

Something many lot of our clients bring up is the desire to be more present, not just with the people they love but spiritually and mentally. The truth is, the body is the only thing that has to be here in this moment; your mind and spirit can wander. To access presence, you need the body.

Tune in this week to hear Radiah, Dr. Roni, and Tawana discuss the importance of presence and how you can cultivate more of it through prioritizing your body. So many of us put our bodies on the backburner, and this episode explores why that can be dangerous. The body remembers how you treat it, and the kinder you are, the better your mental and spiritual outcome. 

 

What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • Why it’s so hard to stay in the present moment.
  • The lessons Covid is teaching us about being present.
  • Why resting is just as important as physical activity.

The Power Paradigm with Tawana Bhagwat, Radiah Rhodes & Dr. Roni Ellington | Reset Your Body

We’re continuing our discussion on resetting this week by focusing on resetting the body. Your body is your vessel; you cannot live the amazing life you want to create without it. So taking care of your vessel needs to be a top priority.

We’re all guilty of putting walls up, especially when it comes to our bodies. We say terrible things to it that result in feelings of guilt and shame. This is no way to honor your vessel. And part of resetting is relearning to love it. 

Listen in today as Radiah, Dr. Roni, and Tawana reveal what you can expect from the 7-Day Body Reset this April inside The Inner Game Plan. Honoring your body means not making it wrong or right; it’s about loving it regardless and treating it with honor. You’ll find out how the 7-Day Body Reset will guide you on this journey and why doing it together makes it even more impactful.

 

What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • What it means to reset your body.
  • How to evoke the body that you want.
  • Why our bodies are often our last priority.
  • How to love your body and treat it with honor and respect.
  • What it means to fall back in love with your body.
  • How this reset is a real opportunity for those over 50.

Time for Self

Last week, we talked about the importance of pleasure and play. We need both in our lives, so why do so many women struggle to make time for it? And it’s not just making time for enjoyment we struggle with; it’s making time to get to know ourselves.

Can you say with confidence that you know what your body needs and desires? If you don’t take time to figure that out, you will continue to dishonor yourself by making other commitments more important. 

In today’s episode, Tawana and Dr. Roni explore what it means to build a sovereign self and how to honor that self with your time. It’s a wonderful thing to be ambitious and achieve success, but without taking time for yourself, you’re missing out on creating even more amazing results. Listen in to find out why you keep dropping the ball on yourself, and how to honor yourself in every aspect of your life.

 

What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • How the guilt about taking time off can feel worse than dreading a busy workday. 
  • The lie we’ve been conditioned to believe about working hard.
  • Why taking time for yourself always yields the most results.
  • The 3 components of every goal.

Blame It On The Pandemic

We are almost one year into this pandemic, and if you’re starting to feel like you’ve had enough, you’re not alone. We don’t know when we can travel or socialize again, which can make us feel all types of ways.

One thing we can do is recommit to the things we want. The choices you make right now will define the quality of life you have in the future. If you’re committed to being fit and fabulous at 50 like Dr. Roni, the decisions you make around food today matter.

In today’s episode, Radiah and Dr. Roni explore some of the effects this pandemic has had on our eating habits and our commitments to ourselves. They share what it’s like to be in resistance instead of commitment, and why both are okay as long as you make the choice. This pandemic is wearing on all of us, but you don’t have to settle for anything less than what you want if you’re willing to commit.  

What You’ll Learn from this Episode:

  • How the pandemic is affecting many of us at this stage.
  • What the antidote to settling is.
  • How to know if you’re in resistance or commitment.
  • What it means to commit to something.
