& HERE’S MY STORY
I never had a problem achieving my goals. Until I realized the reason I was setting and achieving goals was all for the wrong reason.
I remember that day clearly. I was out for a walk listening to a podcast. The podcast host starts screaming through my earbuds YOU ARE NOT YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS!!!
I froze. I stopped walking. I felt stabbed in the heart. Felt uneasy. WHOA. THAT HURT! Tears started to form. You might be feeling the same way right now. Sorry. I am here for you.
I LOVED accomplishing things.
Certifications. CHECK. Create a website. CHECK. Speak at a conference. CHECK. Enter a speech contest. CHECK. The list keeps going on and on. CHECK. CHECK. CHECK.
I couldn’t help but be curious about why those words touched a nerve with me. I didn’t set out to define my worth from my accomplishments.
What is wrong with having a lot of accomplishments? NOTHING!
If you are not making them define who you are, as I was.
We all want to feel validated and accepted. I thought achieving goals was the way to do it, especially as someone who didn’t fit in with the crowd.
Achieving goals gave me the validation and acceptance I was looking for from others.
In reality, all I was getting was dopamine (feel-good hormone). I wasn’t feeling fulfilled or living my purpose. I would go from goal to goal, looking to feel worthy. Those accomplishments were all outside of me. They would never give me the worthiness I was looking for because that is an inside job.
This is where Life Coaching helped me. I thought I didn’t need coaching. I knew how to achieve goals. I didn’t realize how taking actions that weren’t aligned with who I was damaged my mind, body, and soul.
In reality, I was masking – hiding your true self to fit in with society.
This masking led to severe anxiety, self-doubt, many fears, shame, and low self-esteem.
When I was out there achieving goals to fit in with society, my true self got lost in the accomplishments and the dopamine. All those accomplishments didn’t do anything to alleviate the anxiety. As soon as I was done with one, I went to another and another. It’s very easy to get distracted by the bright shiny lights of a new goal of more certifications and achievements and still hide to stay comfortable and not put yourself out there.
Once I realized what I was doing was causing all the anxiety and taking me farther away from my true purpose. I knew I needed to change. Change required me to change my brain. To get out of the habits that were keeping me safe.
Life Coaching helped me form new pathways in my brain to stop hiding when I got triggered by something that kept me in overwhelm and confused where I would shut down and turn to staying safe and comfortable.
I was truly amazed at how fast my anxieties and fears faded away. I will be honest I had my doubts!
Life Coaching helped me utilize my unique powers within myself to go after goals that I never thought were possible to achieve. Think of what you can accomplish when you have the tools to soften your fears and doubts.
This was a life-changer because I knew I was different than most. I now accept and love who I am without looking for validation from my accomplishments to feel worthy.
Having fears and doubts is never going to go away. That is part of being a human. I now know the techniques to manage my mind and regulate my nervous system, so I no longer have to let them stop me from putting my gifts out into the world. I want help you.
Life Coaching equips you with tools to overcome your fears.
I was able to follow my dream of becoming an entrepreneur – Stopping the negative critical voices and accepting myself as worthy even though I felt different for not fitting in with the norms of society helped me build trust within myself to create my own rules in my business around my unique needs.
I enjoy living debt-free – When you realize nothing outside of you will make you happy, and that shopping is only an escape to feel better. You stop spending money on things that you don’t need. You learn to break the habit of shopping to fill a void by discovering other ways to feel fulfilled inside.
Living a healthy life – When you accept yourself as you are now, you prioritize self-care. You longer need food to calm your emotions. You learn calming techniques to do instead of grabbing for a bag of chips. Overcoming my fears led me to fulfill a long-held dream of becoming a certified yoga teacher. A goal I never thought possible!
As you can see, it’s not only about achieving your goal…..
It’s empowering yourself with techniques to live your best life.
It became my mission to help you feel worthy of having the life you want by showing how to use the Power you have Within yourself to overcome any obstacle.
The main thing holding you back is you have habituated patterns in your brain that are not working for you, which may look like…
- Doubting your abilities to put yourself out there in the world.
- Having a fear to speak in public.
- Hiding to stay comfortable.
Your brain likes to keep you safe and alive. That’s its job. The habits form to keep you safe. Creating new pathways shows the brain you are safe doing the things you want.
This is all normal. There is nothing wrong with you. You can stop the pattern and form a new useful one that will get you to your goals.
I am forever grateful for learning and having these skills. They not only allowed me to reach my goals but to help others reach theirs too.
This JOY for me turned into a career change, and I became a Life Coach to help others feel worthy as you are to creating the life you want.
I hope that you always know you are worthy and enough today to reach any goal in life you want. You are capable of doing great things. The world needs your greatness!!
I would love to help you reach all your goals!
It starts with a complimentary consultation where you come up with something you want to change, and I show you the process of changing your habit and give you the techniques for you to have to empower yourself to use when needed.
