    “Instagram is my weapon of choice. And I don’t mind being visible as long as I’m visible on my own terms.”
    “It all goes back to not doing something just because everybody else is doing it, but doing it because it feels right.”
    “I’m loving the collective resistance that I'm seeing happening around the world, whether it's walking out of the Senate, schools, turning up for marches, speaking out, having vigils. It's incredible.”

    How to let go of the risk of failure (part 2)

    How to let go of the risk of failure (part 2)

    This week, we’re taking a closer look at how to approach the fear of failure so that you can let go of it for good.
     The threat of failure brings up a lot of very real worries and feelings, which are completely valid. Failure is so wrapped up in our sense of self, what we’re capable of, and our hopes for the future… no wonder we put so much effort into avoiding it.
    In this episode, I share the experiences that taught me to recontextualize goals in terms of ideas, commitment, and decisions. Practice this and you will never fail again!

    “Just notice: what are you committed to? Where do you feel that in your body? What are you willing to keep doing until?  And then there is no way you can fail.”
    “It takes time to really sink into commitment. Every single time you keep a promise to yourself, you're edging closer to sinking into the commitment feeling.”
    “It's worth reflecting on your reasoning. Do you love the reason that you've decided to not take an idea into the next stage?”

    How to let go of the risk of failure (part 1)

    How to let go of the risk of failure (part 1)

    Are you afraid of failure? You are definitely not alone. The fear of failure is such a big reason for self-doubt to show up. 
    To complicate it even more, we define failure in so many ways, from not making the cut, to guilt around something unfulfilled, all the way to something simply not going your way.
    This is a bit of a personal one for me as I’ve been diagnosed with ‘heart failure’ I’ve been playing with my relationship to failure for the last few months. I want to share my learnings for how I've made some deep peace with this.
     Tune in for the first of two special episodes.
     
    QUOTES
    “We make failure mean that something is bad or wrong with us, usually because we've been told that. We've been told that failure is a form of humiliation. Of course we would avoid it at all costs if we don't believe we can tolerate it.”
    “We forget that because we've failed in the past, we have so much more information. We're experienced, more understanding, older and wiser and more resourced.”

    Tending to wealth with Megan DeBoer

    Tending to wealth with Megan DeBoer

    Is you self-doubt tied up in your relationship with money? This week, I'm joined by the Founder of Tended Wealth, Megan DeBoer.


    Megan defines wealth as a state of plenty in relationships, health, community, our environment, and of course our finances.
     
    Tune in for a rich discussion on the familial and cultural lineage of money, how we frame our relationship with money based on this history, and what we can do to create new, revolutionary narratives around how we build wealth and what we put it toward.

    “The lived history of your grandparents, your parents, what they had to do to survive and the narratives that formed… all of it makes so much sense in the context of where you find yourself in this moment.”
     
    “If we all share these kinds of stories around our worthiness and our need to work really hard, there's something about that that can be really healing. That sense of ‘I'm not in this alone’ can feel a bit like we're sharing the load.”
     
    “There is cultural and societal status attached to that form of wealth. And so it's radical reclamation of what it is, to see wealth that we create around us and our own bodies, to include in that our communities and the financial health of the people in our communities.”

    Five reasons biz feels hard (before you set your biz on fire: listen in!)

    Five reasons biz feels hard (before you set your biz on fire: listen in!)

    Business ownership can be the most rewarding way to express who you are – you get to do meaningful work, live your values, and create beautiful things or offer helpful services. At the same time, it can be an epic self-development quest that you probably didn't even realise you were signing up for (I certainly didn’t).

    There’s no way to create a business that is risk-free, which means that self-doubt is often waiting around every corner. Listen in for five reasons why business can feel so freakin' hard, and what you can do about it!

    If you’re looking for support as a business owner, Bravehearts is a new programme inside of Self-belief School, specifically for business owners. This is low/no content - just coaching and co-working to support you to complete a business goal before Christmas!

    We start 6th November. Get access by signing up to Self-belief School right here: https://selfbelief.school/enrol/#bravehearts

    ‘We think we're just showing up and selling our beautiful work and getting to create a meaningful job for ourselves. But actually, you are going against everything you've been told will keep you safe.’

    ‘As kids we heard, “do what you're told”. And as adults, we're looking to know the invisible rules of how to be an adult. We end up crowdsourcing our decision-making. And this is because we just aren't shown… how to trust our inner knowing’

    ‘People are going to unfollow, unsubscribe, disagree with you. These are all just everyday, neutral choices that people make. If we have untended attachment needs, we can make any of these things mean that we are being rejected.’
