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.
The weight of it all can be unbearable and leads to stress and anxiety that can break you down physically and emotionally.
This was true for our guest today, LaTida. After stepping into her new level, she started to feel the stress and pressure that came with it. While she loved her work, she felt that she was not thriving. Determined to reestablish her inner peace so that she can feel rooted again she decided to give group coaching a try.
Her initial thoughts were “can I get enough out of this because this is probably the most I’ve ever paid before for an experience like this? Am I going to be able to keep up with the pace? Would I like the other women in the group and would I trust them enough to be transparent in the way that I needed to be to get something out of it?
She answers all of these questions and more. Tune in for some insight on her coaching journey and what the experience could look like for you.
And if you are ready to start your journey of internal peace, join my group coaching program. The waitlist for the Deeply Rooted Group Coaching Program can be found by visiting www.brigjohnson.com/group.

LISTEN TO PAST EPISODES…
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.
What I’ve noticed a lot is that people ask for coaching in one area but haven’t addressed another and so the results that they expect aren’t there. To put it another way, I’ll equate it to CPR. To effectively complete CPR you must work on the ABCs (airway, breathing, chest compressions) in that order. If you don’t clear the airway first and jump right into chest compressions then you are essentially just circulating unoxygenated blood throughout the body.
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?
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.
