If you're a high-achieving lawyer driven to accomplish more in your life and your practice, this podcast is for you.

No matter how much we've accomplished and no matter how many degrees we have, we can struggle with self-doubt and imposter syndrome. And no matter how accomplished OTHER people think we are, we can still think we're a "hot mess" and people-please.

In this podcast we talk all things mindset: confidence, time management, nervous system regulation, goal achievement, relationships, money and more.

This podcast isn't just about being a "better" lawyer. It's about living the life you want intentionally.

Dina Cataldo is a Master Certified Life Coach through the Life Coach School and a former criminal prosecutor.

    Calming Anxiety

    Calming Anxiety

    Calming anxiety is easier than you might think.
    A few things you need to know:
    1. Anxiety is normal.
    There's nothing wrong with you. We simply weren't given coping skills for it.
    2. Anxiety is nothing to be afraid of.
    When we attempt to push through or avoid it, we can actually make it worse.
    3. What us high-achieving/over-achieving lawyers tend to call anxiety is a general term.
    Most of the time what we experience as anxiety has a layer underneath it.
    There’s another feeling your body feels, but anxiety is like wallpaper covering a wall to hide what’s underneath.
    When we peel back the wallpaper, we can see what really lies beneath.
    That's when we can start calming anxiety.
    Today you'll:
    uncover what's underneath some anxiety you feel get steps to help you feel better hear real-life stories of how lawyers overcame anxiety After you listen to this episode, you'll have the skills to calm your anxiety.
    When you do, you'll discover you're capable of so much more than you know both in your life and in your law practice.

Dina helps you tame your thoughts to make them work for you

I have listened to this podcast for several years and done one on one coaching with Dina. I have found her help and advice to be invaluable.I have taken my solo practice further and further and also made changes in my personal life that make me a happier person every day.

Great timing, great podcast

I would have thought at 52 I’d have a better handle on why I felt dissatisfied with a recent change in firms. To quote one my favorite movies, Dina is “a voice of reason in a time of great madness.” Her wisdom allowed me to recenter myself and realize I’m in control of keeping myself there.
