Do you remember when you were a kid and thought you could do anything?
Be an astronaut…be a teacher…be President...
You didn’t worry about how you were going to make that happen, you just wanted to because it made you happy to think about the possibilities and you believed you could!
Fast forward 20, 30, 40+ years and what happened to that little girl that wanted it all?
How did she become the woman that wistfully thinks of her dreams only to rationalize her decision to not go for them because she either doesn’t believe she can, or she’s too afraid that she’ll fall flat on her face if she tries?
You might be wondering...Where did that woman come from?
It’s understandable that you feel the way you do. We’ve been conditioned since the time we were kids that failing is bad, so why in the world would we choose to do something where we might not succeed?
The risk of making a fool of ourselves in front of others and disappointing ourselves is just too great.
@@We have dreams…we have goals…we have deep seated desires that are just waiting for us on the other side of our fears.@@
But, time and time again, we get in our own way.
GETTING IN OUR OWN WAY
Instead of wondering where that fearful, doubting woman came from and why she holds you back, I'd rather you wonder about a different question...
How can I get rid of her and reclaim the fearless girl I used to be?
She’s still in there…I promise.
She’s wanting to come out and play.
Can you feel her? Can you sense her excitement over the possibilities your life could have if you just dropped the other part of you that’s holding you back?
Getting in our own way is something all of us do at some point in our lives.
Some people only do it temporarily, they catch it, and they switch it up and step around whatever was trying to hold them back.
Other folks hear those fears and doubts and they stop right in their tracks. They just don’t know how to see around it! AND THAT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE
If you feel that way, you aren’t alone and there’s a reason you have thoughts.
Did you know your emotions lead to thoughts and our thoughts lead to actions?
I’m sure on some level you know that…it’s life, but have you ever really thought about that?
Or better yet, have you ever really thought about how changing one piece of that equation could alter the outcome?
When we feel we aren’t good enough, we think we can’t do something, so we don’t even try.
But, what if we could raise our confidence and know that we are good enough?
Think about that for a moment…how would that change things for you?
If you truly felt you were good enough, how differently would you think? And ultimately, how differently would you act?
A NEW WAY OF THINKING
Our inner critic is the voice we hear in our heads that tells us we’re not good enough. But, that voice is reacting to how you’re feeling about yourself.
@@Our inner critic is a part of who we are, but it’s not who we are.@@
Let me repeat that...
Our inner critic is part of who we are, but it’s not who we are.
When we can wrap our heads around that and learn where that inner critic comes from and, more importantly, why it’s showing up…we can change how we interact with it and start using it to our advantage.
When we do that, we start to erase the doubt because we start to step out from around the doubts and see the possibilities and believe we can achieve them.
I’ve been in the place where I doubted myself…for years, I didn’t believe I could achieve my dreams or accomplish the things my heart truly wanted.
So, I stayed small, followed the rules, and for years, the real me that was buried inside got more lost and more unheard with each passing year.
That all changed when I woke up and realized I had a long time left in my life (if I’m lucky!) and the idea of spending the rest of it like this was not okay anymore.
I started looking within, learning who I am, and making some changes. Some of those changes weren’t easy. I had to say goodbye to some people in my life. I had to get real about what wasn’t working, and I had to start stepping out of my comfort zone to try new things.
I’m not the same person I was a few years ago. Life went from black and white to a rainbow of colors!
My mission is to help other women experience this type of transition in their life.
- I want to help you turn on the light in your life and see all the sparkly, beautiful colors that surround you. I want you to see possibilities where you currently see challenges.
- I want you to believe yourself, where you currently doubt yourself.
- I want you to say yes, instead of saying no.
This is why I created my new Small Group Coaching Program….FEARLESS!
FEARLESS is all about learning how to get out of your own way and start living your life by your rules.
Registration is now open but there are limited spots!
It’s a small program on purpose. I want you to have the opportunity to connect with other like-minded women to commiserate, share, and grow together. I’ve been part of groups like this and magic happens when women in a similar place that share a motivation to change their lives, come together.
Starting on June 27, for 6 weeks, you will...
- Start to dig into that inner critic (I call it the inner bully because that’s exactly what it is)
- Challenge the self-doubts
- Learn a completely new way to think about what it means to fail (hint…failing isn’t a bad thing!!)
- Learn how to partner with your inner critic so you start to call the shots
- Develop or expand your self-care practice so you cultivate your inner mama & support system
- Develop power shields for defending your space and your boundaries so you can continue living a life by your rules
Are you ready to be fearless?
Spots are limited and there’s a extra special bonus for the first 5 that register! So…don’t delay!!!!
Your future is waiting for you, my dear, and it’s beautiful.
I hope to see you in my program! If you have any questions at all, feel free to email me and let me know! I'll follow up ASAP :).
