    EP216: Are You More Afraid Of Failure, Or Success?

    EP216: Are You More Afraid Of Failure, Or Success?

    Are you more afraid of failure, or success?
    What a loaded question.
    It's easy to believe that our minds are wired to want success. But in all actuality, the way that our minds are wired can be a leading factor that's holding us back. 
    In our lives, “the longer we have sat with thoughts of doubt, the more room we gave for doubt to feel familiar. So anything and everything else starts to feel threatening. The idea of being happy and successful starts to feel threatening because we're not used to it” - (Tallia)
    So how can you break free of these thoughts of doubt and fear? 
    How can you work on rewiring your thought process to allow your patterns and habits to form around healthy thoughts?
    In this episode, Tallia Dejou joins me to dissect the subconscious mental blocks that we have around fear of failure, so we can start peeling off our layers of learned fear, in order to step into our own power. 
     
    More About Tallia Deljou:
    Tallia Deljou is a positive psychology expert and life coach teaching people how to break through their own b******t so they can find themselves and free their purpose. Here to help people wake up to the dreams written on their heart, she is committed to giving people the tools to self-coach and self-heal so they can lead more honest lives. She hosts the #7daysofdiscomfort challenge on Instagram to help people break through their biggest obstacles and shares insights on her Forbes' featured podcast, Sincerely Me. Whether through one-on-one coaching, group programs, or her personal development book club, she believes that we experience true meaning and purpose in connection with each other.

    What We Talk About In This Episode:

    EP214: Leading With Confidence - Dr. Jillian Murphy, ND

    EP214: Leading With Confidence - Dr. Jillian Murphy, ND

    This episode is one that I have been wanting to have for a while.
    We see our clients struggling with getting in front of their cameras to record their content, or to go live and “show up” in their groups. 
    When we ask “What is actually holding you back?”, it always boils down to lack of confidence, and unrealistic milestones that they are trying to achieve before putting themselves out there. 
    “I need to lose X amount of weight before I get on camera”
    “I don't need to show myself, I will just use audio”
    “I don't look like a (insert health/wellness profession), so clients would not take me seriously”
    All of these mental blocks are SO common, and yet they hold so many people back.
    Dr. Jillian Murphy, owner of the Food Freedom Body Love Method, joins me to break down why individuals, women in particular, struggle with confidence around their body image, and how that leads to a breakdown in confidence in their work. 
     
    More About D.r Jillian Murphy:
    Jillian Murphy works to help diverse, smart, health-conscious, people (who are DONE WITH DIETING), get out of their heads and reconnect with their bodies. She uses up-to-date eating psychology, clinical insight & guidance around diet culture, health, and weight to teach individuals WHY they stay stuck in negative patterns with food and feel constant body dissatisfaction and HOW they can make the shift to food peace and body joy.
    Jillian also works with parents whose CHILDREN are struggling to eat properly, whether it’s because they are exceptionally fussy or obsessed with food, via simple, practical, research-validated advice. Her work is perfect for parents who want to raise children who are a JOY to feed, who grow well, and have a great relationship with their bodies.
    Jillian’s background includes 10 years of general naturopathic practice along with over 15 years of working with children in various fields, including intuitive eating and body image. She has additional training in CBT and coaching.
