    Victim Mindset, Radical Responsibility & Unpacking Our Own Biases in Relationships

    Victim Mindset, Radical Responsibility & Unpacking Our Own Biases in Relationships

    “We won't always see our own bias either, that's the thing about being biased is that it can often be inherent and built in to the point where we don't even realize that it's actually a story that we're telling ourselves and that it might not actually be true.”
     
    Today on the podcast we are talking all about taking responsibility for our own behaviours, and patterns. I will be challenging you to look beyond your own dogma and own your life choices.
     
    We’re covering:
     
    -Victim mindset.  Are you currently playing out a victim mentality when it comes to the relationships you have allowed instead of looking inward to heal your wounds and write a different narrative.
    -Radical responsibility. Taking on the ownership of our lives, instead of blaming other people for our current circumstances, and emotions.
    -Unpacking our own biases in relationships. We all have them based on past experiences, but today I challenge you to become more self aware of these biases and actively work to grow out of them and flip the script to a more positive outlook.
    -And so much more
     
    Are you ready? Let’s dive in!

    How to Take Tough Feedback...and When to Say F*ck It with Sarah Swain of The Great Canadian Woman

    How to Take Tough Feedback...and When to Say F*ck It with Sarah Swain of The Great Canadian Woman

    Today I’m talking to one of my absolute favourite humans, and now 4 time guest on the Room To Grow podcast, Sarah Swain!
    Sarah left her 6-figure corporate gig in January of 2018 with no back-up plan other than "I trust myself enough to make this happen." 3 years later she is now the proud owner of a Canadian Media Company & Publishing House , a mentor to emerging leaders in entrepreneurship & strategist to online, service-based business owners. Sarah believes deeply in creating financial independence so more people can have more choices and lead happier, more fulfilling lives. featured in Forbes, Sarah doesn't shy away from talking about money, and why you need to create more than one stream of income in order to protect your livelihood from unexpected changes in our world, as we all experienced in 2020. Sarah lives in Alberta Canada with her husband Rob and when she isn't busy taking the world of online entrepreneurship by storm you're likely to find her soaking up the magic of the Rocky Mountains.
    Today we dive into a conversation all about negative feedback.  We’re talking;
    -How to navigate your online presence and the feelings that come when you get negative feedback from your followers 
    -The process you need to go through when you receive any kind of feedback from someone.
    -Sitting inside the inevitable “ick” feeling that you get when you receive feedback that is negative from someone you trust
    -And so much more…
     
    I really love the conversations that Sarah and I have everytime we get together and this one is no exception.  We will always inevitable receive negative feedback in our lives, learning how to sit with it, process it, take it into account moving forward, or say f*ck it, is what is most important!

    Navigating Depression: When Everything Feels Dark

    Navigating Depression: When Everything Feels Dark

    "Overall, this is what I want you to take away the most from this. You get to turn your pain into your purpose. That is your choice and yours alone. And even in the depths of despair, I held on to the same thought I've always managed to grasp onto, like some sort of life raft in the darkness, which is: this is an opportunity for growth."
    Today's episode is a little bit heavier than what everyone is used to, and we're talking about moving through depression.
    This episode is very raw and I am sharing:
    What has been going on with me How I moved through what has definitely been the darkest period of my life, to date. The importance of why I'm talking about this today And so much more  
    Are you ready? Let's go.

    Cultivating a Deep Sense of Self Worth

    Cultivating a Deep Sense of Self Worth

    “The universe will remove anything you put your self worth in, to remind you it doesn’t live there.”
    -Mark Groves
    Your value and your worth is INNATE. You don’t have to earn it, fix something about yourself that you may have believed in the past was broken, you don’t need someone else to love you before your worth shows up. You are worthy. Period. Full stop.
    Todays we're talking all about;
    The deep work of cultivating your sense of self worth How to detach our self worth from our jobs, our income, or our partners Why showing up for yourself consistently is so important when doing this growth work And so much more! Have a listen now!

    The Right People Feel Different to Your Nervous System

    Our bodies are so POWERFUL and learning to tap into the innate consciousness your body possess is a skill that will guide you through life. We can feel it when something doesn’t feel quite right to us - but whether we choose to listen or not is another whole situation
     
    Today we’re talking all about;
    Tuning into our bodies and recognizing when it is telling us that something or someone doesn’t feel right. Answering the question: how do you know it’s the right person? Why that butterfly feeling might not be as romantic as you think it is And so much more!

    Trust is a Choice: Creating a Confident Relationship with the Unknown

    Trust is a Choice: Creating a Confident Relationship with the Unknown

    Dr. Rachel Botsman defines trust as "a confident relationship with the unknown" and I thought that was such a beautiful way of phrasing it.
    Trust will provide growth, which requires patience, uncertainty, vulnerability, and looking inward with the understanding that you don’t know what’s next in the abyss.
    Today we're talking:
    Giving people close to us the benefit of the doubt While also learning how to become more discerning with our trust The ways trust can be both built and torn down in the smallest ways that we may not even notice unless we pay close attention What happens when we're out of integrity in any area of our lives an dhow it shows up elsewhere Figuring out how to trust yourself first and foremost, regardless of circumstances How you can feel trust in the body  
    Take a listen!

Keep going!!

THANK YOU to Emily. I’m a holistic health entrepreneur and I look forward to every episode. It doesn’t matter if it’s a topic she’s already discussed, I love to hear every angle or thought she has on it (money, confidence, imposter syndrome, authenticity you name it). The content is incredible and so relatable. Keep going, you’re driving impact and changing so many lives.

Eye opening

I just listened to the latest one about the infidelity- and in the middle of it, I thought- she should write a book. The world needs to hear this, how women don’t have to stay because of money, fear, etc. she was a powerful message. I’m on to listen to more, but had to share that she is very honest, insightful, with gratitude from her circumstances. Wow. ❤️

nyvonne722daisy ,

Good but long

Some episodes are almost 2 hours! And I’m just not interested in podcasting as a business but 🤷🏻‍♀️otherwise I love it
