    62. Mom Life, Pivots, & Overcoming Fear of Judgement

    Stop worrying about what people think when things don't go as planned. This episode is all about mom life, pivots, fear, and Cara Pinder's new children's book about the tooth fairy. It's also a great episode for those who have big dreams and want to achieve all the things. 
    In this episode, Melissa hosts longtime friend and author of children's book, The Tooth Fairy's Stars, Cara Pinder. Melissa and Cara discuss the journey of embracing change, following one's calling, and overcoming the fear of judgment from others. Cara reflects on her path from being a hairdresser to direct seller to becoming a published author.

    When you know you've given it your all, you cannot ever be down on yourself. You didn't fail. If you gave it your all, you gave it your all. And I always say, do your best, give God the rest. He decides what He does with the outcome. Surrender. And trust. You don't have to carry that heavy burden. -Melissa Batt

    In this episode, you will be challenged to:
    Embrace your own journeys, recognizing that purpose often emerges from unexpected experiences.
    Invest in yourself by continuing to learn and grow
    Express gratitude for your accomplishments and remember to celebrate them before moving to the next thing

    61. When You Say Yes, What Are You Saying No To?

    61. When You Say Yes, What Are You Saying No To?

    Whenever you say yes to someone or something, you are also saying no to something else. If you always say yes, how will you prioritize the things that truly matter to you?
    Today you get a BTS (behind the scenes) of a laser coaching session I did with someone participating inside of my free 12 Weeks to Success Workshop. Sonya has gigantic goals and knows where she wants to go. However, her constant need to say yes to everything and over-committing leads her to neglect her well-being and limits her time to work on her God-sized dreams. During this laser coaching session, I work with her on setting boundaries and rebalancing her life to prioritize what matters most.


    Some of her goals include becoming a life coach, creating a course to help women grow in their relationship with Jesus, and writing a book. This episode is a great example of what it is like to work with me. If you are a high achiever, constantly biting off more than you can chew, love to volunteer, and are always known as the 'yes girl', then get a pen and paper; you'll want to take notes.


    In this episode, you will be challenged to:



    Understand how important prioritizing self-care and your well-being is in your daily routines.


    Discover the profound impact of balance and boundary-setting for your daily peace.


    Realize the consequences of saying 'yes' to all and its influence on others.


    Grasp the underestimated importance of stillness and reflection in goal mapping.


    Take time to do a life audit to see how you are spending your time and why.


    Prioritize your goals - If you're struggling to figure out your goals or have trouble following through on them, this episode is precisely what you need. It will challenge you to reassess your goals and provide guidance on how to focus on what truly matters.



    My special guest is Sonya Smody from Set4Life.


    She's a high-achieving single mom who navigates life with resilience and unwavering determination. Continually pushing the boundaries of her comfort zone, Sonya knows her calling and purpose. However, without realizing it, she often overcommits herself leading her to self-sabotage.


    The Oxygen Mask ParableYou've probably heard the safety announcement about securing your own oxygen mask before helping others on flights, right? It's a brilliant metaphor to explain why personal care matters. If we can't breathe, we can't help others breathe. This principle applies to our day-to-day lives as well. For those of us who struggle to see our worth the way God does, this lesson is hard to learn and will lead to old habits if we aren't careful.


    The Power of Moving BackwardsOur culture often romanticizes the notion of always moving forward and depicts taking even a single step back as a failure. But sometimes, you have to go backward to leap forward. It's like drawing back an arrow before letting it fly. Indeed, revisiting past experiences, re-evaluating priorities, and resetting the course of life can seem daunting. But it can also create necessary growing spaces and ultimately leads to healing if you allow God to help. Sonya openly discussed her fear of going backward in the podcast.


    The Struggle with PrioritiesYou know that feeling when you keep piling on more than you can physically carry? Well, that's what we're talking about. A lot of people, just like Sonya, get caught up in a whirlwind of responsibilities. They believe they can handle everything that comes their way, from personal commitments to endless volunteering opportunities. Unfortunately, it becomes a vicious cycle of always saying yes, leading them to overlook their health and well-being. As one might imagine, this imbalance can take a massive toll on overall happiness and lead to long-term physical and mental exhaustion. From Sonya's perspective, her constant yes attitude initially seemed like a noble trait, one which made lending a helping hand to others a no-brainer. But, it came at a major cost.

    60. Lessons in Faith & Humility: Embrace Vulnerability and Asking for Help

    60. Lessons in Faith & Humility: Embrace Vulnerability and Asking for Help

    I know I'm not alone in my fear of the unknown. In the middle of 2023, I was on the phone with my mom and was telling her how exhausted I felt. I wasn't tired from lack of sleep. I was 'soul-tired'. 
    This episode is just a quick behind-the-scenes conversation with what God is teaching me as I lean into God and stop allowing excuses to hold me back. I am doubling down on vulnerability and leaning into the messy process of growth. And, I'm taking you along with me!


    In this episode, I talk about:



    Staying true to yourself in the pursuit of your goals.


    Overcoming personal insecurities and developing your faith


    Walking in unwavering courage to confront obstacles with humility.


    Mastering the skill of venturing beyond your comfort zone and seeking support.


    Believing in the vision and keeping your head focused on Jesus as you walk things out.

     



    Keep your eyes on Jesus. Not the waves, not the wind, not the people that are behind you or watching you, but your eyes straight on Jesus because he's directing your steps. - Melissa Batt Coaching



     


    Authenticity in WeaknessesThere is so much power in allowing others to see our weaknesses.  It's time to be authentic and embrace your weaknesses instead of hiding them. People are more inspired by genuine vulnerability than artificial perfection, as it creates a relatable connection. In doing so, we empower others to face their insecurities and pursue their dreams without fear. Melissa Batt opens up about her struggles with seeking approval and perfectionism. From her point of view, it is crucial to be vulnerable and show our weaknesses in front of others, even if they may be uncomfortable. By doing so, she encourages the listeners to let go of their fears and insecurities and trust in God's plan for their lives. This approach of embracing authenticity in our weaknesses can help build courage and resilience in the face of challenges.


    Speaking at Church


    Melissa Batt spoke at a church prayer meeting and shared about encountering trouble. She gave examples including conflict, anxiety, depression, and other hardships. Believe it or not, this is actually an invitation to spend more time with God through prayer. She challenged the audience to remember that no matter if it is big or small, God is there & cares. Use the hard times to fan the flame for Jesus and be reminded that the obstacles we face are often distractions from the enemy. He would prefer nothing more than for the trouble we face to derail us from our purpose & growing our relationship with God.  If you would be interested in learning more about having Melissa Batt speak, reach out to realtalktribe@mail.com.

    59. Silencing Your Inner Mean Girl by Flipping the Script

    59. Silencing Your Inner Mean Girl by Flipping the Script

    Have you set some big goals for yourself this year but are having trouble getting started or getting derailed from the habits you want to start or end? Do you think you may be holding yourself back from your true potential? So many of us fall prey to these misconceptions and most of us do it without even realizing it.   Misconception #1 - You have to be perfect to succeed. Misconception #2 - Someone else can do it better than you.  Misconception #3 - Success means never feeling self-doubt.   But the truth is, you don't have to be perfect, there is room for you even when others are also doing it, and self-doubt is 100% normal. As a Christian Life & Business Coach for women & direct sellers, I'm here to share with you the real truth - and help you silence your inner mean girl once and for all. In this episode, you will be challenged to: • Silence your inner critic and transform your mindset by reversing negative thoughts aka FLIP THE SCRIPT.
 • Own your quirks and insecurities as tools to connect you to others and remain relatable
 • Trust God to use all of you- the good, the bad, the ugly!
   Your purpose and plan has the power to impact more than just yourself. It isn't about you. -Melissa Batt   Other Tips: • Consider hiring a coach for personalized and focused accountability to help you reach your goals.
 • Cut out Bible verses related to your insecurities and post them in visible places as reminders of God's love and purpose for you.
 • Call out your insecurities and address them if you feel shame around them. The enemy can't use what you bring into the light. 
 • Speak out about the things that the devil wants to keep you silent in and acknowledge the elephants.
 • Follow Melissa Batt Coaching on Instagram for daily inspiration and tips.
   Giving Yourself Permission to Be You
Embracing our true selves, quirks, and all, is essential for personal growth and achieving true sustainable success. By giving ourselves permission to be authentic and unique, we can harness our individual strengths and stand out in the crowd. In this episode, I share my personal journey to self-acceptance and want you to do the same. In doing so, we can channel our unique abilities to truly live in the purpose God has for us and create a massive impact.   Want the worksheets I mentioned in this episode?

    58. Stop Chasing Shiny Things & Get Laser Focused

    58. Stop Chasing Shiny Things & Get Laser Focused

    Hi friends, I’m resharing one of my straight fire episodes because I think it’s so timely as the new year kicks off. We have these God-given dreams and goals, but we might be scared to start or we keep getting distracted and derailed.
    In this episode, I talk through three key things I believe have helped me achieve my dreams of being a successful life and business coach. When I started dreaming of where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do, I didn't even know it was possible to get paid to coach women. Three years later and here I am as a Christian Life & Business Coach, living out my dream AND getting paid for it. Every time I say it, I'm left in awe of how cool my God is! {Won't He do it?!!! Yes, He will!}
    Check out this episode to hear about the three things I have done to get to where I am today.
    I discuss: 
    1.How to stay focused 
    2.How to create a battle plan
    3.Why it’s important to invest in your dream.

    57. Break Free from Mental and Physical Clutter in the New Year

    57. Break Free from Mental and Physical Clutter in the New Year

    The new year is often a time for us to reevaluate our priorities, removing what is no longer working for us and adding new habits, as we start fresh for the new year. As you may know, I recently moved and am still going through the process of settling in. Moving also forces us to reevaluate the stuff of our lives, both physically and mentally as we move to a new place and space.
    In this super valuable and timely conversation I had with former coaching client, Susan Thrasher, we talk about how flipping the script will give you so much opportunity to change your life and what an impact this has had on Susan's life.
    In this episode, you will learn more about:
    •Decluttering your physical space and experience the positive impact it has on your overall well-being.
    •Finding healing and learning to let go.
    •Journaling for self-reflection and personal growth, leading to a deeper understanding of yourself and your goals.  
     
    The clutter in your mind spills out into your world. Clear the clutter out of your mind, clear the clutter out of your house, and be clear and open to share the light and love that you are meant to be sharing. - Susan Thrasher  
     
    Coaching women in life is my passion! I'd love to offer you a free consult to see if working together could be beneficial for you. You don't have to know what you need help with, you just have to book the call. It takes courage. Just DO IT.
