    Surviving or Thriving: A Conversation with Emily Adams

    Surviving or Thriving: A Conversation with Emily Adams

    Growing up in the Amish culture, Emily always questioned why her family and community lived differently. She always felt a little different growing up, not all that interested in the traditional roles of sewing, cooking and cleaning that Amish girls are taught to do. And yet, she always found herself wondering was there more to life out there? At 17, she found out, taking the decision to leave the culture and everything she had known her entire life. It was the bravest and scariest thing she ever did.

    In this episode, Emily and I talk about the mental strength that it took at 17 to question it all, leave the only family and world she knew for uncertainty. She reflects on how her ability to believe in herself when no one else believed in her became the thing she could always rely on. Navigating an abusive marriage, becoming a single mom, putting herself through school, landing a job in the corproate automotive industry were all faced by Emily head on, and she knew she could get through it because of that trust.

    Now, having left the corporate world to become a coach, speaker and writer, Emily reflects on how for the first time in her life she's found true happiness and feels like she is living her fullest life on purpose. We talk through her journey of surviving to what she now fully embraces is her THRIVE chapter.

    I know you'll love this conversation.

    Caring versus worrying about what other people think

    Caring versus worrying about what other people think

    We all care, in one form or another, what others think of us and our choices in life. The funny thing is that it's usually not a stranger in the street offering their opinion, but more often than not, a family member or a close friend. Someon's opinion of you can have a huge impact on your life, if you let it. In this episode, I unpacks the real reason behind why women care so much about what others think - to the extent that it borders on full blown obsession. We peel back the layers of how this shows up in subtle and invisible ways, the damaging effects of being a people pleaser who listens (and in turn worries) over every opinion but your own, and how long-term, this can chip away at your own self-belief.

    Let this episode serve as a reminder to you that when you worry about what other people think of you, you start to let it take away your individuality, and you think you should conform in some way. Look at it differently and remember you are the only version of you; once you embrace that and accept who you are, I promise there's even more happiness waiting for you

    The real reason you hate uncertainty

    The real reason you hate uncertainty

    I'm not a fan of uncertainty, but I've had to get real comfortable with the discomfort of not always knowing what is to come. In this episode, I unpack the real reasons why you hate uncertainty - one of the reasons being is because your brain hates uncertainty. Uncertainty equals danger; and when your brain doesn't know what’s around the corner, it can’t keep you out of harm’s way. It always assumes the worst, over-personalizes threats, and jumps to conclusions. (Your brain will do almost anything for the sake of certainty). And you’re hardwired to overestimate threats and underestimate your ability to handle them—all in the name of survival.

    Despite your best efforts, things won’t always go as planned. Expectations will go awry, unexpected events will blindside you, and you will experience disappointment and rejection. If uncertainty is unacceptable to you, you only amplify your fear and end up at war with yourself, resisting and arguing with life rather than living it.

    Let this episode serve as a reminder to you that you are enough to accept the unknown—no matter what—and use the unpredictable outcomes to thrive fully into the person you were meant to be.

    It's Not Your Fault, But It Is Your Responsibility to Forgive

    It's Not Your Fault, But It Is Your Responsibility to Forgive

    I am a big proponent of forgiving yourself, but I get how much easier it is said than done.

    This week's episode unpacks how to get to a place where you can truly accept that things that have happened to you are not your fault; however it is your responsibility to forgive. And forgiveness always begins with yourself.

    It can be difficult to stop faulting others for how their faults have impacted our lives, even after we may have moved on from something trauamatic. Forgiveness is all about choice, and at a certain point, we all come to a place where we ask ourselves, what are we choosing?

    It’s not being selfish to consciously choose to forgive yourself, to do some inner reflection and learn from experiences. And it’s not selfish to forgive something or someone because the anger and pain is too heavy to bare. That’s the point. 

    Let this episode serve as a reminder to you that forgiveness is power AND recognize that forgiveness doesn't always look like what we thought it was going to look like.

    Your Pain is Calling, You Gonna Answer?

    Your Pain is Calling, You Gonna Answer?

    In this week's episode, I'm unpacking how pain can be the best signal in the world that something needs to shift within you. I unpack how the tendency to lean into overachievement and always needing things to get done can keep us stuck in a vicious cycle of fatigue. I argue that it is this fatigue that keeps us disconnected from what our pain is really here to show us.

    I dive into how affirming it can feel to embrace your pain and how to remind yourself that you aren't defined it. I remind you of the power of choice to take empowered action that allows you to celebrate the fullness of who you are without beat-up and judgment - just loving compassion. I invite you to celebrate who you are as a result of the pain and reflect on how it shaped you and even more, prepared you for who you are becoming.  

    Let this episode serve as a reminder to you that you can be anchored into your power AND make peace with previous versions of you that have been hurt by painful events. If pain is calling, it's time you answer.

    The Next Generation of Changemakers

    The Next Generation of Changemakers

    In this episode, Dina sits down with Jill Ellyn Riley, one of the authors of Living the Confidence Code (Harper Collins Publishers and a New York Times Best Seller). This heart-felt discussion will give you an inside look at what went into identifying the girls featured in this book and spotlights a few of the many inspiring ways girls around the globe are effecting change. While reflecting on each others' adolescence and what makes up our story, Dina and JillEllyn muse about their love of the power of storytelling. They reflect on how much we learn from the stories of the girls in the book and how we stand in awe of their bravery and resilience. Just like the book illustrates, the conversation illustrates that the best way to understand confidence and learn how to harness its secret powers is to see it in action for yourself. One thing is for sure is that this incredible conversation will have you asking yourself: "What would you like to do once you tap into your confidence?"
