    Getting Rid of the Inner Critic - Part 1

    Getting Rid of the Inner Critic - Part 1

    That Inner Critic you have that drones on and on every day about how bad you are at being a human is NOT your voice. It was put there by society- capitalism, religion, patriarchy, white supremacy, school, religion- in an attempt to control you. And it’s time we undo it. 
    This is Part 1 of a 2-part series that will help you get rid of your inner critic. 
    The first step is truly becoming aware of what it is and where it came from and that’s what I’ll cover in this episode.

    How To Make Better Decisions

    How To Make Better Decisions

    One of the skills I see people struggling with the most–and one I struggled with for years–is making decisions. And the reason people struggle is because they’re focused on the wrong thing. You’re focused on guaranteeing the outcome you want which is impossible. Instead, I want you to focus on the reasons you’re making the decision. When you're clear on what your reasons are and you actually like them, it becomes a lot easier to make decisions. 
    I dive deeper into why knowing your reasons is the most important step and how it can change decision making for you in this episode.

    Leaning Into Uncertainty And Doubt

    Leaning Into Uncertainty And Doubt

    On this week’s podcast, I’m taking you behind the scenes of all of my UNCERTAINTY and DOUBT around my new membership launch. You might be wondering: “Why are you doing this, Goli?”
    Because I want you to stop thinking that other people have it figured out.
    Because I want you to see that the entire process is filled with fear and doubt. 
    Because I don’t want to just show you results; I want to show you the messy middle.

    Quiet Quitting

    Quiet Quitting

    This week, we dive into the new viral trend of Quiet Quitting and why it’s a problematic term.
    Quiet Quitting is a trend on social media where people stop going above and beyond their job descriptions and instead only do what they’re paid to do. 
    This is, in no way, quitting. 
    And it’s harmful to call it that because it operates under the assumption that the employee is doing something wrong when really they’re setting up proper boundaries. 
    On the podcast this week, I dive deeper into why this is problematic and what we should be calling it instead.

I’ve found a new podcast home!

Holy cow I love this podcast. It’s so honest, approachable and really speaks to my soul.

From being gentle with yourself to celebration (which is near and dear to my heart) to building a solid foundation and community.

This podcast has it all!
