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?
What if those thoughts were wrong and the epic sh*t that we want to do really was a possibility? What if? Just because our brain is offering it to us doesn’t mean that it is true.
Listen in to learn how to play the what-if game so that you can begin to transform these negative what-if thoughts into great motivators that can get you to dream bigger.
Also as a reminder, for the month of May 2022, I am offering an opportunity for some FREE coaching. We’re gonna call it the Melanin Hour. It’s a safe place where you can talk about everything high-achieving, life, business, work, etc. To sign up for one of the two open coaching calls visit https://www.brigjohnson.com/coaching
MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE —
The podcast that teaches High Achieving Black Women how to use thought work to be her absolute best self, no matter the situation.
She will learn how not to let outside influences impact how she thinks and feels about herself or how she shows up in the world.
LISTEN TO PAST EPISODES…
As high-achieving women, we are always leveling up and achieving new heights of success. One thing that is certain when you succeed is the various expectations that you place on yourself and that others place on you.
Today we will continue our conversation about the ABCs that you need to accomplish epic shit. Last week I shared that the C of the ABC is circulation. We must make a decision and commitment to circulate our epic shit into the world so that others can benefit. But before we can circulate effectively the first thing that we need to have is Agency. This is the belief that you know that you are capable of doing epic shit. This week we will discuss the B of the ABC which is building self-trust on purpose.
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.
Contrary to what you may have heard, in most cases, you get more benefit from sharing your desire than if you don’t, and the most important person you need to share it with consistently is YOU.
Have you ever thought to yourself, “they don’t get me”? Listen, if you’re a high-achieving black woman, you’re probably talking about some things that some people don’t get.
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.
