(Final Episode) Self-Compassion: What it Is & How to Get More of It



Hello, friend! Welcome back!

This is the final episode of the #AskSteveAustin Podcast, and I’m so glad you’re here.

Today, I’d like to say a big THANK YOU for all your support around this show. And I want to give you a sneak peek at what’s coming.

I’ve been working behind the scenes the past couple of months, rebuilding and rebooting what will become “Catching Your Breath: The Podcast”. It’s coming in January. I hope you’re as excited as I AM!!

You can actually go to CatchingYourBreath.com right now and click on the podcast link at the top of the page to listen to the intro episode right now.

With the launch of “Catching Your Breath: The Podcast,” you can expect 30-minute episodes on self-help, self-compassion, and self-care. I’m going to take the principles from the book and make them as practical and action-oriented as possible for people just like you, living an extraordinary, ordinary life. I want to teach you how to cultivate calm in your everyday life. Think of it as a weekly breath of fresh air.

On today’s episode, I’d like to give you an idea of what the new show is going to feel like by talking about self-compassion.

Jesus is Big Down Under

Jesus & Retaliation (with Bec Ray)



Steve Austin’s friend, Bec Ray (The Aussie Princess), joins the podcast for another look at The Sermon on the Mount! We’ll talk about mental health, justice, & and retaliation.

Alternate titles:

  1. Jesus is Big Down Under
  2. Jesus is Sassy AF
  3. We’re all One Decision away from Being in Prison

About Bec:

Bec Ray is training to be a sassy Anglican priest in Perth, Western Australia. She’s worked in parish churches and as a chaplain in women’s prisons (she likes a captive audience for her preaching). Bec is a liberal Anglo-Catholic which means she likes to affirm everyone except those she disagrees with. She likes the bells and smells of high liturgy and the prayers are written down in a book by someone much holier than she.

Scripture Reference:

Matthew 5: 38-42 “Here’s another old saying that deserves a second look: ‘Eye for eye, tooth for tooth.’ Is that going to get us anywhere? Here’s what I propose: ‘Don’t hit back at all.’ If someone strikes you, stand there and take it. If someone drags you into court and sues for the shirt off your back, giftwrap your best coat and make a present of it. And if someone takes unfair advantage of you, use the occasion to practice the servant life. No more tit-for-tat stuff. Live generously.
