    780: How to Trust Your Gut and Make Your Next Best Move

    780: How to Trust Your Gut and Make Your Next Best Move

    I'm at a crossroads, y'all. My book, Get Over "I Got It" is officially out in the world. (And a huge thank you to all of you who supported me by buying a copy -- whether print book or audiobook). This journey, three years in the making, has been an extraordinary learning experience for me. This dream, a lifetime in the making, was finally checked off the list.

    But you know what no one tells you to prepare for? The "now what" part of the journey. I'm sure there are authors and entrepreneurs who planned that next chapter way in advance. I didn't. And now, as I said, I'm at a crossroads.

    Which isn't a bad thing. And in this episode, I share how I'm navigating this part of the journey, living a few important questions and choosing to be open to being guided by spirit -- with support, of course. I'm committed to my calling, which I believe is to help women learn how to get the support they deserve for success and fulfillment. But answering that calling isn't always easy.

    Whatever part of your journey you're going through right now, I hope you remember to get quiet, listen to that internal voice ("trust your gut") and then make your next, best move.

    Insight from this episode:

    Why we don’t need to be the martyr ever and how to create safe spaces for ourselves. 

    The benefits of focusing on the possible as opposed to what’s probable. 

    Tips for getting comfortable with the “uncomfortable asking.”

    How to tell when you’re happily giving, tolerating, or enduring, and why you must protect your own emotional wellness and negotiate when necessary. 


    Quotes from the show:

    “I had a feeling of, like, I need to stick it out here because there needs to be a beacon of light. But then I got to the spot where I was like, actually no, that doesn’t have to be my job, and I’ve done it enough and my kids need to be in a spot now where they don’t feel different all the time.”  –Nick North Support is Sexy Ep. #779


    On being straight passing: “There is a cost to it. There’s a cost to every time someone says something terrible to you, even if they didn’t mean it to be terrible. Even if their intention wasn’t to hurt you. It still hurts.”  –Nick North Support is Sexy Ep. #779


    On the uncomfortable asking: “That can feel really scary. That could be a huge fight. That could potentially open up big cracks in the foundation that you were just really hoping you wouldn’t have to look at.” –Katherine North Support is Sexy Ep. #779


    “If my “why” has good intentions… then I can change it from it being about me to it being about giving back… If I can go back to the why I need that support, it usually has a really good intention behind it that will put good things into the world… If I have to trick myself to take care of myself that way, I’m for it.”  –Nick North Support is Sexy Ep. #779

    “If my identity is: I am fat, there is just no way, how can I be thin? How can I be fit? If I am fat, and I lose 20 pounds, 30 pounds, I am, for a moment, thin. I’m a thin fat person… I still identify myself as fat.” –Patricia Moreno Support is Sexy Ep. #778

    “You can’t get the idea until you’ve set the intention or you’ve asked the question.” –Patricia Moreno Support is Sexy Ep. #778


    “Sometimes we get the inspired moment, but we don’t take the inspired action.” –Elayne Fluker Support is Sexy Ep. #778


    On willpower: “I’m not going to force myself. I’m going to allow myself. I’m going to become this person. I accept that I am willing to change... Yes, I have to put effort. Yes, I have to be conscious because I like to grab those things. But it’s an internal willingness to change versus a short-term holding my breath and forcing myself.” –Patricia Moreno Support is Sexy Ep. #778

    “Unlearning for me has been a process of digging into, reflecting on, deconstructing the ways in which I was conditioned to not seek support. How was I conditioned around what it meant to be independent and to be self-actualized and self-directed?” –Dawn Shedrick Support is Sexy Ep. #777


    “When I let go of the Superwoman Complex and hired [a team], I can focus on the aspects of my business that are going to allow it to grow and to expand, yes, to bring in more revenue, but to actually have more impact, which is more important to me.” –Dawn Shedrick Support is Sexy Ep. #777


    “There’s as much value in the unlearning as there is in the learning.” –Dawn Shedrick Support is Sexy Ep. #777

    776: One Week After Book Launch: Why You Win When You Finish

    776: One Week After Book Launch: Why You Win When You Finish

    It's one week after the launch of my new book, Get Over "I Got It", and whether it's conversations with friends or one of the many interviews I've been blessed to do, a question that keeps coming up is: How does it feel to be a published author?

    My answer: I'm not sure, but I do know that it feels amazing to finish!

    On this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast -- which was recorded while I was out on my walk this morning, so please excuse the background noise -- I share what I am feeling and thinking one week following my book's debut in the world. My perspective has definitely evolved throughout this process.

    In a nutshell, whatever dream you have, remember to celebrate the steps you took day to day to see it to fruition. This way any "success" or accolades that comes after that are just bonus. And if those things never come, hey, you've already won!

    Thank you for your support. If you'd like to learn more about me and about my book, Get Over "I Got It" visit getoverigotit.com.

    And if you post a picture with the book, please use the hashtags #getoverigotit and #GOIGI so we can celebrate you, too!
