    Lucinda Cross: Get Off Your ASK

    Lucinda Cross: Get Off Your ASK

    When it comes to asking for what you want in life, are you the type of person who tries to figure things out on your own or are you the type of person who is willing to ask for help and support?
    For many women, myself included, it’s hard for us to ask for what we want because we’re not taught to ask.
    For me, I think about why I waited so long to ask for help when my business was crumbling in the last recession and it’s because I grew up in a household where I was not taught to ask. I was taught to figure it out.
    Combine that with the fear many of us have about asking for support, and it’s no surprise so many women hold themselves back professionally, as entrepreneurs, and even in their relationships.
    Today, Lucinda Cross, author of The Big ASK and an International speaker and influencer, joins us to unpack why so many of us fear asking for help. Lucinda pulls from her own experiences and from the hundreds of people she’s interviewed on this subject and has come up with some practical steps you can take now to get closer to asking your big ASK.

    Get Off Your ASK Takeaways
    The fear of asking usually comes from either not having clarity on what to ask or having asked before and been let down. – Lucinda Cross
    Come up with 10 solid reasons this thing matters, then when you get rejected, remember those reasons and keep asking. – Lucinda Cross
    When you tell people to ask for what they want, they usually only know what they don’t want. – Patrice Washington
    No one wants to do anything for someone who is doing nothing. – Lucinda Cross
    Don’t be an ASKhole (i.e. someone who keeps asking and asking, but then does absolutely nothing). – Lucinda Cross
    Even on your best day, when your swagger is at 100% and everything about you is hot and on full blast, there will be those who don’t feel you. – Lucinda Cross
    Two-thirds of 7 billion people want to say yes to you. They just need to know you exist and know what you have to offer. – Lucinda Cross
    As you work on your big ASK, use Lucinda’s work as a guide. Walk through the ten reasons why this thing matters to you and as you go, get more and more clarity on your ask. You also want to avoid being an ASKhole, so be respectful of the person you’re making the big ask of and don’t waste their time.
    Do you have a big ASK? Have you ever been an ASKhole? And how can you avoid it from happening again. Let us know in the comments below.

    How I Learned to Love Myself

    How I Learned to Love Myself

    Have you ever struggled with loving yourself? I know I have. And since a Redefining Wealth community member recently asked me how I’ve learned to love myself, I figured it was probably a good topic to discuss, since it’s still an ongoing process for me.
    For me, I grew up feeling very ugly. I compared myself to others in school, I felt I wasn’t as pretty as my cousins, and even at home, I grew up with too many people saying that I was ugly. So, in that respect, it wasn’t just a feeling, it was something I was told.
    And because of that, I became addicted to achievement. My whole identity then became about being the best student with the highest grades, being the captain of the basketball and volleyball teams, and being class president – all fine things. But all were done from a place of trying to be loved, not from a place of purpose.
    Since then, I’ve learned to love myself, but it’s something I have to continually practice every day. It is through evolving and learning new ways to embrace who we are and how we love ourselves that I’m able to love myself, and it’s the thing I want to share with you in today’s episode.
    This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer.

    How I Learned to Love Myself Takeaways
    I have the power to reject what does not serve me and receive what empowers me. – Patrice Washington
    You don’t have to pick a compliment apart or give a compliment back – just say thank you and receive it. – Patrice Washington
    Learning to love myself comes from getting up every day and choosing to chase your purpose. – Patrice Washington
    The more I see how my sloppy progress is a blessing to others, the more I fall in love with myself. – Patrice Washington
    Loving myself has nothing to do with achievement – it has to do with fulfillment. – Patrice Washington
    I don’t need anyone to tell me how to be me. – Patrice Washington
    God was not practicing when he created the masterpiece that is Patrice. – Patrice Washington
    Every day that I wake up with breath in my body is another opportunity to do my best to get it right. – Patrice Washington 
    Are you struggling to love yourself? Are you struggling to find your purpose, or rather, to follow it? Are there topics or questions you’d like me to cover on Redefining Wealth? Let me know where you need support, and I’ll do my best to cover it in an upcoming episode.

    Deborah Tillman: Parent With Purpose

    If you’re a parent, then you already know parenting isn’t always easy, and parenting in the time of COVID-19 is something altogether different.
    Our kids want to go to school. They want to play with their friends and have birthday parties and sleepovers, and go places. And they can’t do any of that right now.
    Not only that, but for those 8 to 10 hours they were at school every day, they’re now at home. And you’re home with them trying to manage everything.
    It can be a lot to handle, and it’s why I invited Dr. Deborah Tillman, host of America’s Supernanny and author of Parenting on Purpose, to give us parents some actionable steps we can take to be better, especially in the wake of this pandemic.
    Join us as Dr. Deborah breaks down the reasons why parents need to encourage, connect and respond to their kids. As she says, “It’s important to give children the space they need to communicate what’s wrong and not be judged on or criticized for what they say.”
    This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer.

    You can’t expect people outside your home to be a better role model than you are to your own family. – Deborah Tillman
    Give children the space to communicate what’s wrong and don’t judge them for what they say. It may seem insignificant to you, but it’s not to them. – Deborah Tillman

    Herdyne Mercier: Stop Policing Grief

    Herdyne Mercier: Stop Policing Grief

    Does grief always have to be reserved for the loss of a loved one, friend or pet? Can you experience grief with any loss like the loss of a job, loss of normalcy or loss of your finances? 
    According to Herdyne Mercier, Chief Grief Crusader and host of the Redefining Grief podcast, grief is a natural response to any loss and you have the right to grieve anything you want.
    In the midst of this global pandemic, it’s normal to experience grief and not even realize that’s what you’re experiencing. You might be grieving the loss of your job, the loss of your income or the loss of being around friends or visiting your parents, and that’s normal and okay.
    In today’s episode, Herdyne walks us through the anchors of grief and goes deeper into explaining why grief is normal and natural and how embracing grief and our grieving process is one of the best steps we can take for our future.
    This episode is brought to you by our complimentary Purpose Chasers community. Want to share your aha moments with a group of like-minded purpose chasers from all over the world? Visit iamapurposechaser.com and join NOW.

    Stop Policing Grief Takeaways
    It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death is the destiny of everyone; the living should take this to heart. – Ecclesiastes 7:2
    We should give people the dignity of their own grief process. – Patrice Washington
    Grief has no timeframe. – Herdyne Mercier
    Stop policing my grief because none of us are immune to heartache. – Herdyne Mercier
    The ability to tell the truth about your heartache is freedom. – Herdyne Mercier
    When you connect with someone who sees you, hears you and validates your feelings – that’s power. – Herdyne Mercier
    I know what darkness is and I’m not going back so I have no choice but to anchor in my faith. – Herdyne Mercier
    I want to die empty and die knowing I gave it my all. – Patrice Washington
    As we’re all navigating life differently now, a lot of us are probably grieving our schedules, our titles, our routines, our income, etc. – and that’s okay. Grieve what you need to grieve, but also know that this time can produce a new normal that’s more glorious than how things were before.

    T-Kea Blackman: Success Doesn't Make You Exempt

    T-Kea Blackman: Success Doesn't Make You Exempt

    With everything going on in the world right now it’s understandable that people are worried and scared. We’re in a time where our normalcy has been stripped from us and it doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor or black or white. COVID-19 is no respecter of person.
    Some communities are obviously more impacted by this virus than others, but we’ve seen both celebrities and everyday people stricken by it, and we know no one is exempt.
    Not only is the virus detrimental to some, it’s having a catastrophic effect on our mental, physical and spiritual health. There are so many people out there who are suffering and afraid to speak up. 
    That’s why this rewind episode with T-Kea Blackman, author of Saved & Depressed: A Suicide Survivor’s Journey of Mental Health, Healing & Faith and owner of Fireflies Unite, a mental health media and communications company, is so important.
    Join us as T-Kea and I go deep into the topic of mental health. We cover everything from T-Kea’s own struggle with depression and her attempted suicide to society’s understanding of mental health.
    This episode is brought to you by the Wellness Recovery Action Plan – a 4-week online self-designed prevention and wellness training that anyone can use to get well and stay well, so they can create the life they desire.
    Hosted by T-Kea Blackman, this training is for you if you’re battling burn-out, struggling with making self-care a priority, especially in a season like this, and unclear about how to detect the early warning signs of deteriorating mental health.
    The Wellness Recovery Action Plan is an evidence-based practice and was initially used by health care and mental health systems all over the world to address all kinds of physical, mental health and life issues.

    Success Doesn’t Make You Exempt Takeaways
    I didn’t realize my desire to end my life could be linked to depression and mental health. – T-Kea Blackman
    We all have mental health. The problem is a lot of people use “mental health” and “mental illness” interchangeably and distort what each means. – T-Kea Blackman
    People assume if they have mental health – good or bad – that they have issues, but that’s not true. – T-Kea Blackman
    Depression is not a synonym for sadness. – T-Kea Blackman
    When people use depression and sadness interchangeably, it minimizes the severity of depression and can cause more damage. – T-Kea Blackman
    Sadness tends to fade away once a situation gets better, but with depression, there’s a lingering sadness that actually never leaves. – T-Kea Blackman
    If we understand that depression is truly a disability, we can have a greater level of compassion for those suffering from it. – Patrice Washington
    You can’t always see someone’s mental health just by looking at them. In fact, oftentimes, it’s the high-achieving, high-functioning people who have poor mental health or are struggling with a mental illness. That’s why we need to always show compassion for those struggling and really offer support instead of judgement.
    Now, let us support you. How has COVID-19 affected your work, relationships, family, etc.? How has it affected you mentally, physically and spiritually? Are you struggling with or ashamed by what you’re feeling in the wake of this pandemic?

Episode 79

I have been enjoying your podcast for a few weeks now and decided to start going back into some of the older episodes when I came across this one. I have now listened to it 3 times and I just cannot express how much it touched me. As we approach summer I will be reviewing my goals that I set for 2020 and I am using this podcast as my framework. Who I need to become in order to live the life I'm dreaming of, is just as important as the life I'm dreaming of. I am now asking myself everyday if I am becoming the person I want and need to be in order to see this idea through. Thank you so much Patrice!! Keep speaking from your heart!! Sincerely, Tina
