In this "Monday mindset'' episode, I am sharing my experience with scriptwriting as a part of the extended work of affirmations. It’s not as simple as standing and speaking affirmations. It is about changing your thoughts from the level of your subconscious mind. These are the steps I use to write a script for my brain to focus on where it is going.

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I want to talk about collaboration, what it is, and how it can change your life if you truly let it. Collaboration is the action of working with someone to produce or create something. It is working together for a common purpose, and with knowledge with the right connections more is possible. It implies cooperation, is the opposite of competition, and is a word that many people say but actually might not wholeheartedly believe.

In this episode, I want to share a mindset shift or an awareness that I had this past week. It is about the things that we resent or resist and looking at the energy that we are wasting sitting in these emotions. What if these are the things we even despise of ourselves and we are holding onto that resentment. It is a weight that is holding us down, keeping us stuck in the same cycle of energy and frustration. We will never create change in this cycle.

In this episode, I am addressing the word control. Ugh, this word control ruled my life for years. I strived for control and perfection, so it is the default I go to on a regular basis. This is also a position that I hear so many of my clients drop into. This can be even further compounded when life feels chaotic, challenging or a lot of things happen outside of our control. It is a simple solution but definitely not always easy.

She encouraged Lia to never leave the house without wearing her sparkling earrings, because they would serve as reminders of the light within.

#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.
