Hi Soul Friends, Its Tannaz Hosseinpour, and welcome to another short solo cast of Minutes on Growth. This week I want to speak about purpose. Let me start by saying that ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ฉ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ž๐ง๐œ๐ž ๐ก๐ž๐ซ๐ž ๐Œ๐€๐“๐“๐„๐‘๐’ – ๐ข๐ญ is ๐๐Ž๐“ ๐š ๐œ๐จ๐ข๐ง๐œ๐ข๐๐ž๐ง๐œ๐ž.

Because the universe makes no mistakes.

Every single person is born with a ๐ฌ๐ฉ๐ž๐œ๐ข๐š๐ฅ ๐ฉ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฉ๐จ๐ฌ๐ž ๐ฌ๐ญ๐จ๐ซ๐ž๐ ๐ฌ๐š๐Ÿ๐ž๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ข๐ซ ๐ฌ๐จ๐ฎ๐ฅ & ๐ก๐ž๐š๐ซ๐ญ that will make the world a better place.

To complement that purpose, theyโ€™re gifted a set of ๐ฎ๐ง๐ข๐ช๐ฎ๐ž ๐ฉ๐š๐ฌ๐ฌ๐ข๐จ๐ง๐ฌ, ๐ญ๐š๐ฅ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ฌ & ๐๐ž๐ฌ๐ข๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ.

It is then ๐Ž๐”๐‘ responsibility to discover these magical gems, our truth, and to live life to our ๐‡๐ˆ๐†๐‡๐„๐’๐“ ๐ฉ๐จ๐ญ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ข๐š๐ฅ.

It is ๐Ž๐”๐‘ responsibility to ๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฐ ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ข๐ง๐ง๐ž๐ซ ๐ฅ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ฌ๐ก๐ข๐ง๐ž because that light enhances lives.

It is ๐Ž๐”๐‘ responsibility to believe that our ๐ฉ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ž๐ง๐œ๐ž on this physical realm, right now, at this very moment, truly ๐ฆ๐š๐ญ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ, because it DOES.

However, often times when we are ๐ฎ๐ง๐š๐ฐ๐š๐ซ๐ž of our gifts & purpose, we betray ourself with negative self talk. We stop believing in ourself. We dim our light. We self-sabotage. 

Diminishing your potential and inner light is an act of self-betrayal


But what if you haven’t discovered your reason, your true calling, your purpose yet? I recently released a FREE 7 part Mini Series on Instagram to help you gain insights into your purpose. My instagram handle is @minutesongrowth and there is a Life Purpose highlight on the main feed, and if you’re interested to dive deeper, I also have a self-paced online course that covers all those 7 topics in much more detail. It is guaranteed to answer your “Why am I here?” question.

You see your presence truly matters. It always has. It always will.

You just need to believe it.

I was listening to a podcast the other day where the host shared a story that I want to share with you. He said imagine you buy a million dollar lottery ticket, and place it in your pocket. The ticket you bought is the winning ticket but you have absolutely no idea as you haven’t had a chance to check yet. At that point in your life, you’ve now become a millionaire but you just don’t know it yet. Until at some point, days later, you check the numbers and realize that you are the winner, you are a millionaire. Has anything changed throughout the hours? No, the ticket was always in your pocket. You’ve been a millionaire for some time, its just that NOW you actually know it.

It’s the same with your greatness. You have ALWAYS been great, you just need to know it now. Knowing it can become easier when we embark on a journey of self-discovery, where we discover our talents, & passions, where we get know ourself better. We usually study everything else except ourself, so today, I ask you to please put some time aside for yourself, discover your truth, discover yourself so that you can live a meaningful and fulfilled now

& never forget how great you are. Your presence matters. Believe it. Know it

Sending you lots of love, speak soon.

Episode 41 – The Poison of Gossip

Please click here to listen to the episode.

Hi everyone, its Tannaz Hosseinpour and welcome to another solo episode of Minutes on Growth.

When my mind is in overdrive, I sometimes like to watch reality tv. As I was watching one particular Real housewives episode, I noticed that I had spent a good 30 minutes watching grown women gossip about one another continuously, which got me thinking about the overall action of gossiping. Why do we gossip? It never really solves anything. I mean most of the drama on the show is because they are gossiping, so nothing really good comes out of it. So why do we feel the need to engage in it?

You see, when we gossip, we’re operating out of a scarcity mindset – we’re talking from a place of judgment, comparison and doubt. These are all low vibrational, low frequency emotions, so in other words we are creating a negative energetic field around ourself, and then once we’re done gossiping, we continue walking through the day with that cloud of negativity following us. So not only have we hurt another person but ultimately we have hurt our own state of wellbeing as well, hence why it’s so poisonous.

A few years ago, one of my mentors told me something that blew my mind. She said its impossible for you to recognize a trait within someone else if it’s not present within you at some level. If you think someone is jealous of you, then perhaps that trait it within you otherwise you wouldn’t have noticed it. It might be at different levels but the seed is there.

Since learning this, I’ve become really conscious of gossiping. Whenever I find myself gossiping about someone, I try to bring my awareness back to my statement. I ask myself, what part of myself needs healing and awareness? What trait of the other person is triggering my wounds?

Do I still sometimes gossip? As much as I’d like to say no, the answer is yes. Even though I try my best to not engage in this toxic behaviour, I’m only human, and I too fail. I have however noticed that when I do tend to fail and gossip, I’m usually doing it with the same people. So community plays a major role in this as well. Who are you surrounding yourself with? What activities are you engaging with when you’re with them? How do you feel when you’re with them? How do you feel when you’ve left them? This is why we need to be really intentional with our community and how we spend our time. I talk a lot about this in my Discover Your Purpose Online course so if you’d like to learn more about how you can create an empowering community for yourself then check it out.

Another great way to restrict yourself from gossiping is to practice the socrates test – whenever you find yourself wanting to gossip, ask yourself, is what I am about to share with others true? is it positive and good? and lastly is it useful? Not everything we say must be useful, but it needs to be true or good so If it’s not good or true, refrain from engaging. Everything becomes a habit when we repeat it over and over again, so we can program our mind to automatically pass statements through this test.

So today if you catch yourself judging someone else, take a moment and pause. Ask yourself, where are these thoughts coming from? What part of my soul needs my attention? How can I shift from this scarcity mindset to an abundant one? and lastly is it true, good or useful?

Remember, what you focus on expands,

Sending you lots of love, speak soon.

Episode 39 – The Power of Pause.

Please click here to listen to the podcast episode.

Hi Soul-Friends, welcome to another solo episode of Minutes on Growth. A couple of weeks ago, as I was navigating through a bubble of confusion, I felt a sudden urge to reach out to my spiritual mentor at the Kabbalah centre. He informed me that the foundational course Kabbalah 1 for the first time ever was taking place online, being taught by Marcus Weston and that it was starting within 2 hours. Could that have been a coincidence? I don’t think so. I took this as an immediate sign from the universe to enrol in this transformational program once again(for the third time I must add), to remind myself of all the practical tools that I can use in my day to day life to enhance not only the quality of my life, but my overall state of consciousness. I have spent the past 8 weeks, signing in for an hour a week listening to my teacher remind us of how magical life is. Reminding us that nothing is a coincidence and that everything is divinely orchestrated. He’s been reminding us that every challenge that comes up in our life is an opportunity for us to grow from. We always have the choice to either respond with awareness and to use that challenge for our highest vision, or to allow the ego to keep us stagnant and stuck in old patterns.

Last week, even though my course has not finished yet, I decided to enrol in the second Kabbalah 1 class taught by another teacher , the amazing David Ghiyam, that is taking place online , because while the material is the same, there is a major difference in the way teachers explain them, and there is always something new to learn. There is an abundance of wisdom that is being shared through different people all the time. & I was not wrong. On the first day of class, David reminded me of a practical tool that I often times forget about. The power of Pause. In Kabbalah, we’re taught that the only way we can move forward is by not reacting. When we react, it is our ego that is narrating the story. It is our goal to silence and transcend the ego, & to allow for the soul and the light to shine.

So in other words, whenever we’re feeling doubt, anger or lack and we’re triggered, and we want to react a certain way, we PAUSE instead. Once we’ve paused, we need to rejoice in our pause. We need to let the universe know that we are happy to pause. Some argue that this is similar to suppressing your emotions or bottling it up. But it’s not. When a situation arises that triggers us, when a challenge arises, we want to pause, we want to express our pleasure in the pause because we know that this challenge means that our soul is READY to transcend to the next level. This is a test from the universe to see if we’re ready to grow. If we pause, and allow the light, god, source, energy to guide us, we evolve. If however, the ego reacts, we stay in the same situation, and the pattern once again continues. Every challenge is an opportunity. Every single challenge.

Is pausing easy? not really, but it’s important that we try. No matter how many times we fail by reacting, we allow ourself to try again. Our purpose in life is to evolve. Our purpose in life is to leave it better than how we entered it. If you’re listening to this episode, I know that you believe this too.

I want to add that all that I just said is simply my perspective. Is it 100% right? Probably not. No one’s perspective is 100% right, it’s simply their perspective. But let me ask you think, what world would you rather live in? In a world where challenges are perceived as opportunities for growth or in a world where challenges push you into a victimhood consciousness – where you believe that the universe is punishing you or that you’re not worthy of lets say a quote on quote easy life? I choose to be in the first category because the first belief empowers me to grow.

So today, just for today, are you wiling to shift your perspective to look at every challenge through a new light? Are you willing to silence the ego to allow the light to come in? Are you willing to not react and simply pause?

Thank you for listening, Speak soon.

Episode 37 – How To Change Your Life

Hey soul-friends,

Itโ€™s your host Tannaz Hosseinpour, and Welcome to another episode of Minutes on Growth. I want to talk quickly about mindset. I hear this question quite often “How can I change my life.” While there isn’t one pill that can solve that over night, we can pinpoint a major truth that can shed light on the situation.

Your reality is a reflection of your inner stories. To change your life, you need to change your stories.

You need to become aware of your inner critic, and notice the times it narrates your life.

๐‘ฌ๐’‚๐’”๐’Š๐’†๐’“ ๐’”๐’‚๐’Š๐’… ๐’•๐’‰๐’‚๐’ ๐’…๐’๐’๐’† ๐’“๐’Š๐’ˆ๐’‰๐’•?

A lot of the time, we donโ€™t even know what stories we carry within us.

Theyโ€™re so deeply rooted that we are unaware of their existence.

In other words, we are on auto pilot.

So when do we become aware?

๐™’๐™๐™š๐™ฃ ๐™ฌ๐™šโ€™๐™ง๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™ž๐™œ๐™œ๐™š๐™ง๐™š๐™™!

Sometimes the trigger happens after having a conversation with a friend, new experiences, reading a book, watching a video, listening to a podcast, advice from a coach or mentor etc.

Or sometimes life throws us a huge curve ball that forces us to change.

In these moments, itโ€™s important to ๐ ๐จ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ง.

To look for reoccurring patterns and to ask yourself why.
To realize that the old stories no longer serve us.

To acknowledge that the old beliefs, perspectives, thoughts and opinions are actually holding us back from achieving our true desires, from living our highest visions.

So if you notice yourself struggling in an area in your life, donโ€™t be afraid to question it. Ask yourself why it is manifesting in the physical realm. What belief do you need to let go off for this reality to change?

๐—•๐—น๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฒ๐˜…๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—บ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ป๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ถ๐—น๐—ถ๐˜๐˜†.

Unfortunately, the majority of people tend to underestimate the power of their mind, and the power that lies within them. They tend to stay within their comfort zone, within lack.

If you want to live your truest and highest self, you need to step outside of victimhood & claim that extraordinary power that is ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐˜† ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚.

Today, I want you to know that ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ ๐š๐ซ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐š๐ฎ๐ญ๐ก๐จ๐ซ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐จ๐ฐ๐ง ๐ฅ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ž

You always have a choice.

You are powerful beyond measure.

So, the question that remains is, are you ready to tap into YOUR super power?

I know you are otherwise you wouldn’t be listening to this right now.

I know you can do it.

Sending you love. Thank you for listening, speak soon.

Episode 35 – No AttrACTION without Action

Please click here to listen to the podcast episode.

Hey soul-friends,

It’s your host Tannaz Hosseinpour, and Welcome to another episode of Minutes on Growth.

One of my favourite topics to talk about and do workshops on is decluttering the mind and manifesting. I believe that mastering the art of decluttering is one of the strongest foundations for personal development and growth. However, I’ve noticed that almost every single time I finish a talk on this topic, I get the same question at the end – the question is “I’ve stopped thinking negatively and I’ve been focusing on positive thoughts but I’m still not manifesting my desires”.

I understand this question so well — Growing up, I witnessed a lot people in my life be super positive but not be able to manifest their desires.

Let me ask you this – If you’re a student and you have an exam coming up – if all you do is ask the universe for good grades, and just meditate or feel relaxed – will you get a good grade? No. You cannot get good grades without actually putting in the work and studying.

Yes – asking the universe for good grades will plant the seed of intention into your subconscious. By saying it out Loud, you let the universe know that you feel deserving and worthy of it and it will boost your self confidence.

Yes – by meditating and feeling relaxed, your mind will be able to better absorb the information as its not in a state of fear. The more relaxed you are before and during the exam, the better you’ll do

But without the 3rd component – of actually showing up to study – chances are you won’t do that well.

So use this analogy with all your intentions and goals. Ask yourself, when you set a goal..

Are you showing up to your life every single day to the best of your ability? Your best can be different every single day – some days you might be on fire and supercharged – some days you might feel like you need a break – but as long as you SHOW UP to the best of YOUR ability- that all that matters. It’s important to SHOW UP & take action. The word action is in attraction – you can’t have one without the other.

Ask yourself, am I acknowledging the fears that I’m having right now — what baby steps can I take towards the ones that I do have control over?

If I want to make x amount of money, and I’ve set the intention and I’ve surrendered it to the universe, and I walk with faith and trust — am I actually showing up to my life by taking action? am I working on my skills? am I open to opportunities? am I willing to listen to the universe when it is speaking to me through family/friends and random coincidences.

If I want to become fit and healthy, am I mindful of my eating habits? Am I trying to put in 30 minutes of movement every day? Am I drinking enough water?

If I want to attract ” the one”, am I working on becoming an embodiment of my desires by working on my personality traits – am I putting myself out there? am I open to meeting my significant other online? and so on..

So if you’re listening to this episode, I kindly ask that today, just for today, you show up to your own life to the best of your ability. and you keep doing this , day after day. Stop waiting – stop procrastinating – stop asking the world for permission – you are the author of your own life! You can attract the life of your dreams – you just need to take action – consistently – one step at a time.

Thank you for listening, speak soon.

Episode 33 – Resistance to Setting Intentions

Please click here to listen to the podcast episode.

Hey soul-friends,

Welcome to another episode of Minutes on Growth. I’m your host Tannaz Hosseinpour and today I want to talk about personal resistance. 

I’ve been thinking a lot about intentions – how we set them, why we set them and how we can actually release them into the universe so that they can come to fruition. I’ve noticed that there is a lot of hesitation when setting intentions during hard times, especially intentions related to material wealth. When life is flowing and going exactly as we’d like it to, there is less resistance to asking and manifesting. Somehow, the words flow out easier and we have more trust in the process. But when life feels difficult, for example during a pandemic, or a financial crisis, we think twice before setting them.

In Kabbalah, they introduce us early on to a word that I believe holds immense power: certainty. They argue that we need to live and breathe life with certainty. We need to believe at all times, that everything is from the divine source, from light, from god, from the universe.

Certainty I believe is the element we need to add to the equation when resistance is involved. Realizing that the fear that holds us back from setting and releasing an intention is just the inner neighbour, the inner critic within our mind that wants us to have doubt. The inner critic that thrives on drama. The inner critic that takes us away from our truth. The inner critic that preoccupies our mind with so much clutter, that we no longer see certainty. we no longer feel connected to the universe.

In those moments of resistance, let us shift our focus and awareness onto certainty. Let us know that the universe always has our back. Let us know that the universe will always support us. Let us walk with full trust and certainty – knowing that what we have released will come to fruition. Today, let us set intentions without focusing on the how — let us surrender to the unknown with certainty.

Thank you for listening, speak soon.
