Hello, happy Thursday and welcome to the last PYP episode of 2023! And it's a good one! Good referring to how Tom is feeling and doing. It has been one of the most challenging and yet the most rewarding year of Tom's life. Tom loves doing the 'end of the year reflection' episodes; it's like a highlight reel of the past year. So, looking back at what he and Zen went through this year, Tom was quite stoked and thankful just to get through it all. All the unconditional love and support Tom received was an amazing gift. He was overwhelmed in the best possible way. To Tom's surprise, it got even better! Recently Tom (and Zen) had the best day of the year! It was a gift and a celebration surrounding the fact of how well Zen has recovered. Tom is so very thankful for so many things but this last gift was simply next level. Gratitude, gratitude and gratitude. Enjoy and thank you for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! Tom was thinking he might have an episode a week after his last episode looking at his sticky notes. Then the tipping point; Tom remembered what happened nine years ago today. He knew he would record an episode that would come out on 'Thursday' (some folk call it Thanksgiving) which Tom doesn't celebrate. But what Tom will celebrate is that exactly nine years ago on a 'Thursday' he had spent it alone and had an amazingly quiet, peaceful, rewarding day. He knew he had spent the last year and a half depressed and he was coming out of it. And he was thankful everyday. The very next morning Tom knew he wanted to start a podcast. He knew what his message would be. To be thankful and mindful. Tom has not left that path or swayed from that message in the last nine years. And Tom has only gotten better. Tom sharing his experiences is part of his reward, part of enjoying the fruits of his labor. Enjoy and as always thanks for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! Tom explains what's behind the title and where it came from. The title and a pretty amazing story happened the day before Tom recorded this episode. So it's a full episode of Tom's experiences and they all seem to end 'good' (wink-wink). Personal growth is quiet and a reminder of the importance of focusing on what you can control. Lastly, Tom feels he is being very repetitive with the message that your life is on you and he continues as such. Anyone looking interested in online training message Tom! Enjoy, and as always, thanks for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! Yes, it's been awhile. Tom almost had an episode ready to record prior to his producer, Niko, returning from his trip. But then something happened. As it does in life. But Tom's energy was now demanded in another area. As well as his focus and time. Once Tom was in the middle of it all, he didn't have the energy or clarity to surmise his experience. In time, hindsight becomes a wonderful friend. Tom will share when he has something of value to share. Tom believes this episode has value because he wanted to share it. Enjoy, and as always, thanks for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! Another episode out in 2023 and what a year! Tom wrote down the title while speaking with a friend. It sounded cool and it immediately made Tom think about 'little things done consistently' and the similarities between them. Building a solid day, A Pro You day, one that not only serves you but fuels you, is the path of personal growth. Tom has shared this principle before in many ways but at the core of it, it all has to do with you taking control of the things you can and letting go of the things you cannot. Tom is dog sitting with Zen and shares how Day One went and his thought process reading into it. Any questions, or comments, or interested in online training, please contact Tom. Enjoy and as always thank you for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! Tom found delight in this episode's title and he shares how it came about. From the opening moment one can tell Tom is feeling good, different. And by different, he means better; better than ever before and there's no hiding how Tom feels - one way or the other! Tom has shared a quote that he made up many years ago, "How one deals with a test has a direct outcome on the test" many times. Well, that could've been the title as well. 2023 has been a challenging year in many ways for Tom, yet he's by far the best he's ever been. Tom shares why July was challenging and how he overcame it. Tom shares his opinion and feelings on all of this and more. Enjoy, and as always, thanks for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! Tom was journaling and wrote he had a feel good day. Then he stopped and thought 'why was it a feel good day?' He was highly aware of the answer immediately, it was because of his actions. Stop thinking and start doing is the key. Yet, another idea which is easier stated and much more difficult to apply to one's path. The more belief you have in your worth, the more clarity you'll have in moving forward on a path of your choosing. Lastly, Tom announces his return to social media and why he chose to. Enjoy and as always thanks for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! Is that really the title? Yes it is. Tom is definitely in a place where he doesn't care much about what he's doing or how. So when the title came to him, he went with it. Being open and grounded are words Tom has used before, mainly due to the fact that is where he feels he is. The version Tom is, he simply gathered thoughts on sticky notes, as he always has, and there was no consistent theme... easy. Moving forward. Tom's hope as always, is that something he shares resonates in such a way that you apply it to your walk, your path and you reap the fruits of your labor one day. That's why Tom does what he does. Enjoy, and as always, thanks for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! Tom is hoping that this finds you well. On today's episode, Tom shares a pretty traumatic story with another positive outcome, which is beginning to be a theme in Tom's life (wink-wink) and should be in everyone's life. If 'being fine is a choice' (last PYP episode) how easy is it to actually do? Tom's answer - "It's easy once you understand it. Understanding it takes a lifetime". At least for Tom it did! And why he does what he does, why he shares what he shares - so it won't take you as long! Enjoy and as always thanks for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! In a brief text exchange, Tom received the title of today's episode and for the last three weeks it hasn't left his thoughts. Tom finishes his mental, emotional and financial test with great humbling clarity, that he shares. Tom's growth is apparent to him in lieu of how challenging this year has been for him. Which reinforces the message Tom is always sharing - 'growth only happens when you're uncomfortable.' The more discomfort, the more the growth. If embraced, this knowledge will help move you forward and you will become the best version of you. And once again, you are worth it! Enjoy and as always thanks for listening!

May 11, 2023

Hello and happy Thursday! Today's full episode title is "Let go of the banana or blame the pumpkin" which is a line Tom got from the book he is currently reading. Tom loves when he hears something that has a bit of a twist but has the same or similar core meaning. Tom shares a story of how monkeys are caught using a pumpkin and how that relates to things that we hold onto in life. All we need to do is just 'let go'; we can't and so we blame other people #pumpkin. Shocker: Tom has another beautiful monster story that actually caused Tom embarrassment as well as growth. The biggest take away from this episode, and most as of late, is the connection with discomfort and learning. The most we'll ever grow is going through a challenging moment in life. Fact. How one embraces, accepts and moves forward with that knowledge is on them. Is on you. Enjoy and as always thanks for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! Sustainable Foundation..? How does Tom come up with these titles? It is typically the exact thing he is discovering, learning or experiencing at the time of recording an episode. Tom has used the word sustainable before - "Being thankful is sustainable" - and foundation he has used for ever. Just not together. Why not? Tom had not reached that point on his path yet. How did Tom get to that point? Going through and growing through a challenging beginning of the year and an even more challenging month. Wait? Tom became the best version of himself by going through an uncomfortable experience? YUP! Tom would want to add that this is not the first time nor the last that this was his experience whilst going through a challenging moment in time. Enjoy, and as always, thank you for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! It's been awhile since Tom has released an episode and there was a reason for that which Tom covers in detail on today's episode. Tom reached out to his producer Niko to chat. Tom wanted to share what was going on with him and the podcast. Before they could chat the story had changed. There was an amazing journey that happened leading up to Tom's birthday (which he doesn't celebrate anymore - wink-wink) and post his birthday all wrapped around Tom's best friend Zen getting major knee surgery. Yup, all that on today's episode! Enjoy, and as always, thanks for listening!

Feb 23, 2023

Hello and happy Thursday! It's official - PYP is 8! Tom could not be more grateful. When he thought about the anniversary all he could feel was gratitude. Tom made a note. Then Tom had a moment of clarity on building a 'solid' day. Tom made a note. Yet Tom didn't feel he had enough for an entire episode and then... Tom had the most up and down ride for three days. All he could think of, and he repeats it during this episode, "When you are ready for the next test, it appears." The very next day Tom had clarity and peace and he knew what was happening and why. Not always fun or comfortable sharing his funk but that then allows Tom to share the good - what he has learned. Come to his well - buy the water he sells! Enjoy and as always thanks for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! Tom's process with putting out an episode of PYP became simply 'if he had something to share, he would'. Well, Tom has plenty to share on today's episode but it was not fun, comfortable or easy to share what Tom shares. But, always sharing the positive perspective, it is only because of what Tom experienced that he gained the insight and truly a deep understanding of the term Beautiful Monster; which Tom has mentioned in a previous episode. Tom has always been very transparent and no need to change now. This is exactly the same type of process one goes through when first beginning meditation; one sees, for the first time, the chaos in the mind. It can be daunting and overwhelming. Pursuing this path will not be an easy, familiar, comfortable path. So it's a good thing Tom has deemed himself worthy so you can learn from his mistakes. "Come to his well - buy the water he sells!" During the intro Tom thought the title would be just Beautiful Monster, but when he thought about it, it is his beautiful monster that he is sharing, hence the title change. Enjoy and as always thanks for listening!

Hello and happy Thursday! And happy Earth rotating around the sun if you're into that kinda thing. Tom has been enjoying Tom thus far in 2023. So much so, that he hasn't had much else to share. Until he did. It wasn't a great morning but it prompted reflecting, which Tom did and then what he shared with a client became worthy of the first PYP of the new year. Tom shares another moment, not a shiny one, but a real one. Which is why he continues to share the good and the not so good because... #drumroll that is life! The episode ends spontaneously as Tom gets emotional sharing the joy he feels and why he shares what he shares. Enjoy, and as always, thanks for listening!
