From Anxiety To Living In Her Purpose
This is a MUST listen to be inspired to follow your heart.
Emma is a past coaching client of mine who reached out in 2019 to seek help after having an anxiety attack and feeling depressed for a short period of time. That experience rocked her and I remember our conversation on the phone when she said to me that she wanted these negative thoughts to be gone and never come back. I replied, "that ain't going to happen". I helped Em realise that it's about learning to live with negative thoughts whilst focusing on the things that truly matter to her, and as a result the anxiety should ease.
She came on-board my six month coaching program to help her to focus on bringing into life what her soul desired. Ultimately, she realised she wanted to expand her focus beyond the corporate world and in her heart she wanted to write and create music. Six months went by and she created over 60+ song ideas and is now producing her very own music.
Living In Alignment With Your Truth
If I could describe Dani Stevens, it'd be that she is a HUGE ray of sunshine. Man is one heck of an energy - she's legit palpable and oozes vibrancy. She is someone who is living in alignment with her truth that continues to evolve and I have major respect for that.
Her vivacious personality and down to earth sense of humour is part of her success in motivating others to take control of their lives through health and fitness. Once a corporate ladder climber and living the hustle and bustle life, her journey from burning the candles at all ends to becoming her own version of superwoman, is very inspiring. She began to motivate women by sharing her weight loss (100kg weight loss) journey online in 2012 which took on a life of its own and has opened so many amazing doors and opportunities.
Just talking to Dani you can't help but think, "shit, if she can do it, I can too!" She's an incredible role model for us all and I'm so stoked to bring her to your lives.

When Past Traumas Are Triggered
I am in the process of healing my body from sexual abuse trauma. My mind is like, "are you for real dud? You've done a fk tonne of work on this matter and mentally feel really good about it!", however, my body needs some attention and healing.
When my step-daughter's are here and I hear them walking down the stairs on down the hall, my body literally freezes. My mind logically knows it's them but my body is right back in the moment of being sexually abused. This has been happening intermittently over the last three years and it takes me some time to calm my body down. So I reached out to my White Witch of a Kinesiologist, Elena Pilch, to help me heal the residual trauma in my body.

Living In Duality
The freedom I've found in letting my darkness be there without needing it to go away or fixed in order for me to do epic shit, is beyond words.I can't tell you how many YEARS I wasted trying to fix the dark so I could THEN play in my light. Yet every damn time I'd fix it, thinking BOOM, I'm free, it'd come back and I would feel utter despair and hopelessness.
I'd think I'm a screw up, an idiot, a loser, a nobody, a failure. When I realised my focus was in wasted territory I made it my mission to let my darkness be there, come up when it wanted to have its say and then leave it be. So now when I create something new or meet a new level of potential and I'm metaphorically shitting myself, I let myself feel excited, courageous and pumped AND anxious as all fk.
Prior to this I would hate that I felt all the "bad" feelings, punishing myself for thinking and feeling negative things. It's been one of the toughest lessons to learn to accept my dark side and appreciate its presence, but it's been worth the battle.

Stop Using Other People's Opinion As An Excuse
There's cool shit in your life that you want to go for and experience. It can be living in a new state or city, starting your own business, changing industries, leaving your job to travel, or whatever. But there's a little voice inside your head making up an excuse that says, "what will others think? I can't do that, they'll laugh at me!" That other can be your parents, friends, colleagues or society, and you're using them as a reason for not going for what you want.
In today's episode we looking at taking the blame off others and taking personal responsibility for why YOU are holding yourself back.
Over Giving Your Energy
Calling all energy (over) givers, this one is for you. I'm a sucker for over giving when I listen to my ego. It gets off on being needed and wanted, yet feels resentful towards others and scolds me for when I reach burnout and am forced to take time out. The days are gone of good old solid burnout but I can still over give to a point where I notice my behaviour change (not for the good). In this episode I share the mindset I have today to help keep my energy in check and strategies I have in place to protect me from my ego.
