Episode 101: 3 Steps to Know When to End Things

Why We Need to End Even A Good Thing

Welcome to Episode 101 and the final episode for The Daily Interaction show. Today’s topic is why and how we need to end even good things in life. You know that nagging voice in the back of your head that says you need to get out of something, or do something else with your time? Everything may be going great in your business, or your relationship, or even your job, and a part of you just stops being totally into it. That’s when the voice in your head starts talking louder and louder.

If you ignore the voice, it will keep harassing you until you listen. You cannot continue ignoring your inner voice without consequences. I ignored my inner voice for years when I was at corporate – and finally, I was able to get out of that job and into my business because the voice got louder and louder.

You have inner wisdom. You know best what’s right for you. In that example, my inner voice knew that I am not made for a corporate career, and I was meant to walk the entrepreneurship path – and it was right.

So how do you listen to your inner voice and gather enough information so you make the right decision? In this episode, I talk about the 3-step process that is very useful when you apply it overtime you hear that voice complaining about something you are doing – and this can be something very bad such as a toxic relationship or something very good such as a cushy lucrative easy job.

  1. Get very curious. Curiosity quiets the self-judgement and heavens knows we have more than enough judgment to deal with, and curiosity opens the door to clarity.
  2. Observe what is happening. Observe why you are feeling this way. Observe a lot and ask yourself questions.
  3. Be gentle and kind to yourself. We are very fragile and vulnerable on the inside. So exercise plenty of kindness in your dialogue as you gather your information.

Why I Am Ending the Daily Interaction Podcast

Turkey-Istanbul

As you may have guessed, the nagging voice came to me a while ago about my beloved podcast, and I did the most natural thing of all: I completely ignored it.

Until I could not ignore it anymore.

This is a perfect example of when you hear the nagging voice about the good and even great things in your life.

Why would you want to end something good?

Why would you want to stop doing something that brings you and others usefulness and even joy?

So I went through my 3-step process, and when I got very curious and observed why I am feeling this way, I realized it is not because I don’t love podcasting and creating something that you enjoy. Of course I do. There are just other pressing projects, books, commitments and works that call my name and need my attention.

To all my listeners: THANK YOU for your love. Stay tuned for more! 

This marks the final podcast of The Daily Interaction Show. I am proud to say that the podcast was sponsor-free and ad-free and completely free for 2 years, and that I produced a show for you every week except 2 random weeks where life and circumstance simply overpowered me. We had a great run, and you can access the entire archives anytime.

Going forward, the focus will be on Prolific Living blog, as well as other surprise works I have in store for you.

Hop on the list below not to miss a beat, and stay confident, stay brilliant, and share your thoughts on how you end things in your life when the time is right and when that inner voice beckons you to do so.

    Hi, Farnoosh –
    I want to say it again….your podcasts have been fantastic, and such a help to me — but how great that you are able to to recognize the moment when it’s time to shift your focus so you can be most effective. Thanks for reminding us of the importance of listening to our inner voice. I’m looking forward to whatever projects you’ll dive into next, because I’m sure they’ll be just as amazing as your podcasts have been. Best of luck!

      Thank you SO much for the kind words, for letting me know the podcast has helped you and for your support, Crabitha. You are very kind. And have made my day!

    Ah Farnoosh, you are speaking directly to me today:-) I call it going from wanted to more wanting. It’s the best way to create. We are so used to staying where we are until we feel sick about it then staying some more. As if just wanting something different is not enough justification to realize our desires. I love creating from a place of power and joy, rather than a place of frustration and resentment.

    It’s like leaving at the top of your game. I can’t wait to see what’s up next for you.

      Thank you dear Nneka, what inspiring words, what a great support I have in you – THANK YOU!!! I love your wisdom and perspective …. so you know the feeling that sometimes we wait until we get sick of something we used to love, right? Not good. I am grateful for your love and support…. I won’t disappoint with the next things in the works ….I promise :)!

    Hi Farnoosh.
    This is truly one of your best podcast. I like the way you are very courageous and a great example to new entrepreneurs who are struggling with decision making.
    Sometimes we want to hang on to things because it is what we are used to doing.
    Change is not easy, but I realize in the entrepreneur world we must constantly change if we want to grow.
    I will be reading your blog as always.
    All the best in your new plans.

      Joyce, thank you so much – great to hear I am ending on a good note and that I improved along the way ;)!!
      And from one entrepreneur to another, boy do I hear you – we sometimes have to step back and just see what’s best for us and I am so grateful you are supportive. Thank you and I hope your journey in entrepreneurship is as much fun and fabulous as mine!!
