We are usually much harder on ourselves than others. Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy. We’re going to experience failure from time to time. It’s inevitable. During stressful times, we can find ourselves falling into traps, such as negative self-talk, those damaging things we say to ourselves that get in the way of us doing epic shit.
You see, we’ve been taught how to be very harsh with ourselves because other people were very harsh with us for generations. It’s time to stop being so hard on yourself! And I want to help you with this.
Join my next masterclass happening the first week of March 2022. If you’ve ever been stuck, if you’ve ever struggled with self-doubt, if you spend way too much time making a decision because you just gotta get it right, this is the master class for you because I will explain why we do what we do and how to correct it.

LISTEN TO PAST EPISODES…
Last week we played the what-if game. What if all these obnoxious thoughts we had on consistent bases had nothing to do with our worthiness yet they continue to hinder us from creating epic shit? Right.
Today we are going to play the what-if game. As high achieving women being marginalized and growing up in the way that we have, we’ve been conditioned with all these negative thoughts in our brains that we have to fight against on a daily basis. Things like I’m wrong. I’m unworthy. I can’t do this. Who am I to think of doing some epic sh*t?
Do you know how these series get us hooked and cause us to binge-watch? It’s because they end each episode with a cliffhanger that leaves your brain wanting to know and figure out what will happen next. And so you keep watching one episode after another until you’ve binge-watched the series.
If you are old enough to have played Candyman as a child you can remember entering a dimly lit room (usually the bathroom), standing in front of a mirror, and saying the name “Candyman” five times in a row. The expectation is that the monster will show up behind you. This experience caused you to intentionally put yourself in a scary situation.
You guys know how I am always talking about self-coaching, right? That’s because I truly believe that it is a powerful tool to aid in your growth on your journey to accomplish epic shit.
As a coach of high-achieving women, I find that so many of us have stopped dreaming. Our ancestors sacrificed for us so that we have what they dreamed of and now that we are successful and comfortable we have stopped dreaming. There are many reasons for this that include us not waiting to fail or appear to be greedy.
