    How to Stop Hustling and boost your Confidence

    How to Stop Hustling and boost your Confidence

    0:00 Do you ever feel compelled to rush throughout your day to get more stuff done? What about hustling when you know you don't even need to do that? If you've experienced either of these, you're gonna want to lean in and turn up the volume on today's episode because our guest, Savanna Schiavo is going to help us ditch the hustle and reprogram the rush. 
    1:09 About Savanna Schiavo
    2:25 Savanna’s life before becoming a life and confidence coach.
    5:55 Why hustle and rush often creep into our lives and how conditioning, culture, and our internal desires inform these activities.
    “Hustle and rush are coming from a place of fear, and a place of lack. It's us acting out of fear of not-enoughness essentially.” - Savanna Schiavo
    11:06 The correlation between fear of lack and confidence.
    11:59 “When we're taking actions from the place of hustle and rush, it's blocking our confidence. It's blocking our creativity, our energy, our ability to flow, our ability to relax and tap into our gifts." - Savanna Schiavo 
    13:18 “To access more confidence in our business, we have to solve for the fear that's been driving our business. We need to look at the fear that is keeping us from feeling competent.” - Savanna Schiavo
    14:45  How business owners can tap into and reprogram fear so it works for us and it becomes something positive versus staying stuck in that negative emotion.
    15:32  What do you believe is keeping you going all the time? What are the beliefs that have been driving this behavior for me?
    16:10 Common beliefs we don’t even notice that we think are true.
    17:19  Question 2: Is this true?
    19:30 Question 3: If you didn't believe this, what would be different about you? 
    What you're doing is showing yourself, your subconscious mind, what would be available to you, if you decided to let go of this optional belief, and practice and open up to new beliefs. 
    22:02 How do we share ourselves, share our messages and attract the right people into our businesses using social media as a tool rather than a place to feel bad about ourselves?
    23:11 On attracting the right people by being magnetic.
    26:05 Savana’s favorite way to create content  
    27:10  “I let myself be the really imperfect human I am so people really get to see me. I think that's what is so powerful.” - Savanna Schiavo

    9:36 “It's so easy to compare our insides based on someone else's outside, that's what social media does so well.”

    11:09 How holding onto guilt and shame was a normal part of growing up for Yong
