Internal vs External Validation
This episode is all about validation and the two ways we experience it: from external sources and from our own thoughts. We'll dive into how relying on external things for validation causes and perpetuates problems - not the least of which being what I call "fragile happiness." Then I'll explain how you can take radical ownership of your feelings about yourself and your worth. Grab some coffee and let's do this.
Creating Your Future Self
This episode is all about getting to your future self without taking the torture path. Because here's the truth about creating the future you want: if the journey there SUCKS, you're not going to feel better when you arrive. If you don't feel worthy along the way, you definitely will not feel like you're enough when you get there. In other words, happy endings do not come from unhappy journeys
Feeling Pain Without Suffering
Most of us are taught that any feeling except happiness is something to be avoided. But, human beings are emotional creatures. Emotional capacity is literally coded into our DNA. In this episode, I explain the difference between "clean pain" - which is unavoidable - and "dirty pain," which is absolutely avoidable.
Choose Growth Over Comfort
If you want to change anything, at all, you've got to be willing to feel discomfort. Changing how you feel about your life, deciding to leave a toxic job or a toxic relationship, finding your forever person. Whatever it is, discomfort will accompany change. And if you want to feel better, calmer, happier, more content, more FREE...you have to choose growth over comfort. For a deeper dive, visit kristenfinch.com.
Your relationship with your emotions is probably not super healthy...and this is not your fault.The ways we were taught to interpret and to deal with our emotions may have been legacy, but legacy does not equal healthy, does not equal true. In this episode, we unpack the baggage of our emotions, together. For a deeper dive and free registration to my Master Class, visit kristenfinch.com.

I began listening to this podcast while being coached by Kristen Finch. By way of background, I am a 43 year old attorney in New York City. I did not think I needed coaching or needed to listen to a podcast to learn about how I feel and think. I WAS WRONG! While Kristen’s coaching is obviously carefully hand-tailored to my life, the podcast fits right in. The lessons embedded in these podcasts are ESSENTIAL to success, power and confidence Kristen has literally changed my life, and these bite sized podcasts (usually 15-30 minutes) are perfect to listen to on the way to work or during a run. Highly recommend, especially for attorneys, sales people or anyone in a competitive field, or just someone who needs to evaluate their thoughts and feelings.
Kristen Finch lays it out clearly and cleanly. “It”being the answer to everything! Please, if you are feeling muddled/hopeless/anxious/scared, listen to Kristen‘s podcast. You will learn how the story you tell yourself affects you. And perhaps you will decide to change that story.
