Do you know what a Cyborg is?
Don’t run to google, I’ll tell you. According to dictionary.com, a Cyborg is a person whose physiological functioning is aided by or dependent upon a mechanical or electronic device. Often times when things happen to us in life we forget that we are human beings having a human experience and that includes us experiencing all the emotions that we feel and it’s okay. Instead, we try to fix these emotions as if there is something wrong with them.
Queens, we are not Cyborgs. Our physiological functioning is not aided by or dependent upon a mechanical or electronic device. We get to feel all the discomfort of our emotions and move forward anyway.

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.
