In this episode, I am sharing some thoughts on my reflection of sharing my story, mental health, and World Mental Health Day on October 10th, 2021. We say our mental health is very important, yet I truly believe that we are being called to rises up and support more humans especially this year. It’s interesting because there’s a larger divide than ever which leaves people feeling isolated and alone.

In this episode, I am sharing some thoughts from Robin Sharma’s latest book, The Everyday Hero Manifesto. In one of the chapters, he spoke about what a difficult day for the ego looks like. Those are the days where we are full of doubt, unsure of our next steps, second-guessing everything, and how it seems easier to stay put where we are. A difficult day for our ego can truly be a beautiful day for our soul, who is literally waiting to soar and fly.

In this episode, I am sharing a question that came up in our Radical Responsibility Mastermind call, and it was in line with the energy and stress of what a lot of us are experiencing in the world right now.  It feels as though there is a massive division happening right now and I know the media and fear are not helping the situation.  It doesn’t matter what side of any topic you are on, we can all refocus and bring in more empathy, kindness, compassion and do this without carrying it all.

In this episode, I am sharing some thoughts on the word “how”, and it is really important in how it is used and how we can break the pattern in our use of it. Yes, I hear the irony in these words. This came up in a conversation with one of my mentors and I knew I was being called out. I had to share this lesson with you today.

In this episode, I am sharing a lesson that I am learning on repeat in all areas of my life and business.  There is a very specific distinction between standards and expectations.  One is based on fact and one is based on fiction.  I have always been one to set very high expectations for myself, and as a person who has always been driven and pushes towards goals, I am learning to let go of or shift the meaning of expectations.

In this episode, I am sharing some thoughts on one of the most common questions I hear in my dm’s or from my clients as they are trying to find their voice and there’s this inherent fear of what will “they” say? We start with worrying about who “they” are, family, friends, relatives, co-workers, or even the strangers who show up in our lives to share their opinions and judgments with us.

#297: The Blocks to Owning Your Story

In this "Monday mindset'' episode, we are talking about the 4 blocks to owning your story.  After coaching women for the past 5 years on owning their stories, I have found that we all tend to fall in between one of these 4 blocks.  Identifying and owning your block is the best way to learn how to move through them.  If you want the freebie gift of learning to identify your block, connect on the link in the show notes to sign up and be the first to receive it.   

In this episode, we discuss:

1. The Victim Block – this is where we ask why, we keep ourselves stuck in our stories, we are looking for a reason or a justification. Learning how to change our questions from why to what and get into action can create the changes to stop being stuck as a victim in the story. 

  1. The Fighter/Perfectionist Block– this is where we put our head down, work harder to control the world, burnout over and over, have ridiculous expectations of ourselves, and resist asking for help. Learning to let go of the control, focus on our own actions, ask for help and be open to receiving the help can shift this blockage. 
  2. The People Pleaser Block – this is where everyone else is their top priority, they say yes to everyone else, they lose themselves in the process, they have a lack of worthiness and typically zero boundaries in place. Learning to put their needs first, fill their cup first and use the overflow for others, and then understand the importance of boundaries is the only way that they can learn to move through this block.  
  3. The Hider Block – this is the professional smiler, the one saying, “I’m good”, they are a natural deflector, takes the conversation off of themselves, very afraid of the judgment of others, and afraid to let others in. Learning how to embrace vulnerability, show up and allow ourselves to be seen, then allows others to be our support.  They have been waiting for us to show up.
