    Transitioning From Old Self Into New Self

    Transitioning From Old Self Into New Self

    In this #PerformanceHack Episode I discuss the importance of staying present during transitionary times. 
    Many times, people either get caught reliving the past or going back to old beliefs and behaviors. Or people are anxious to get to the 'new' because the in-between phase is uncomfortable. 
    It's where the daily work of building new pathways to create new beliefs and behaviors can get exhausting. It is during this phase though where the most important lessons lie. 
    I give a few tips towards the end on how to navigate through this time and the valuable lessons you'll learn coming into the new version of you.

Brief & Impactful Message

Perfect dose of inspiration delivered in a concise message. Great for busy professionals — I look forward to more episodes! I have been following Michelle on instagram for 3 years and she is very knowledgeable. She’s always reading and learning and sharing valuable information.

In many episodes, Michelle hits points that I can relate to. For example, in episode 7, she talks about the importance of being present and not letting the feelings of stress/anxiety take over when faced with challenges; need to be present and take action from a point of clarity - thanks for all of the helpful reminders!
