We decided to collaborate and offer a 2-hour immersive workshop to help these entrepreneurs unpack or unlock one aspect of their story to gain clarity in their messaging to attract and connect with their ideal audience to grow their brand.

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.

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 today’s episode we discuss:

1) Our ego sits in comparison, and judgment, wants us to stay small and protected, and wants to block us from receiving support from others. This process also interferes with our feelings of worthiness, and that opens up so many other issues of worthiness in our life.

2) Our ego wants things to be perfect, it expects it, and ironically our imperfections are what make us human, allow us to connect with others, and build relationships with people who know, like, and trust us. The difficult day for our ego is truly a beautiful day for our soul who is truly trying to be heard.

3) “We are all in training for life, the more we sweat in training, the less we bleed in war.” Robin Sharma. We are always a work in progress, and instead of meeting these days with resistance, what if we ask deeper questions about what are we here to learn, what is this teaching us, and what if the lessons we are learning today make us even better for the challenges or opportunities for tomorrow?
