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.

#284: Authenticity is a Practice 

In this Friday Facts episode, I want to talk about the buzz word, “authenticity” especially in regards to the online space and building a business.  Brene Brown defines authenticity as, “ the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.”  We make a choice to be authentic, live in alignment, say yes and no to the things that matter, and honour our boundaries. It is a practice, not a one time thing. 

In today’s episode we discuss:
1) Authenticity is not a case of having it or not.  It is a practice, it is consciously living a life that we want to live.  It requires a check in on a regular basis as our lives change, we change, and we are faced with different challenges everyday. 

2) When we make decisions for the wrong reasons it does not mean that we failed.  Instead it means that we are humans on a journey getting to know ourselves and learning what we want to say yes and no to.  It is a hell yes or it is a no.  There truthfully is no in between. When we make decisions for the wrong reasons, that out of alignment or inauthenticity is a chance to learn how to do things differently the next time. 

3) As Brene Brown says, “there is no authenticity without boundaries”, and this hit home for me. Living a life with boundaries means living in our highest form of self respect, giving to ourselves and being ok with saying no to something that simply isn't meant for us. When we say no to others it can be uncomfortable, but that short feeling of discomfort is so much better than anger, resentment or frustrations.  None of those emotions will move the needle forward in our lives.
