    Wanting What You Have

    Wanting What You Have

    Go for it!
     
    Welcome to today’s episode of the ‘School of Self-Image’ Podcast with host and self-image coach, Tonya Leigh, where personal development meets style. This a go-to podcast for women who desire to transform their self-image so that they can create mind-blowing results in their lives.
     
    How do you differentiate success from happiness? This happens to be the question I often get to ask myself lately. Your definition today might not be applicable tomorrow or in the next few days. As we try to live in the present, we tend to focus on short-term goals or wants.
     
    Let me break this cycle today by sharing my thoughts about ‘wanting what you have.’ Take time to pause and take a look at the things you already have. This will guide you to having that content and staying away from shiny little things around you.
     
    Join me for another action-packed episode of living life with gratitude, appreciation, and just positive vibes. Wherever you are right now, I wish you a beautiful Thanksgiving, my gorgeous friends!



    What I Cover In This Episode:
    1:16 - The concept of ‘wanting what you have’
    3:20 - Delaying gratification: good or bad?
    4:16 - How to live with appreciation
    10:48 - My no-spend challenge: I will not buy anything for 6 months!
    13:30 - How to practice gratitude
    14:20 - Thinking about your future self



    Quotes:
     
    “You either have to choose to have big goals in order to be happy, or you have to choose to be happy with where you are right now.” 
    “Nothing will ever be enough. It’s always us chasing more, more and more.”
    “I would love to see gratitude be a lifestyle for all of us.”

    What Is Success?

    What Is Success?

    Success has a billion definitions in the world. Time to start yours today!
    Welcome to today’s episode of the ‘School of Self-Image’ Podcast with host and self-image coach, Tonya Leigh, where personal development meets style. This a go-to podcast for women who desire to transform their self-image so that they can create mind-blowing results in their lives.
    When you search for the word ‘success’ in Google, you’ll end up seeing a million of content such as posts, stories, blogs, videos, and the like. Success is one of the most-used and powerful words across the globe. That’s how success is to people. People aim to achieve it by all means.
    For me, it took a while to realize the true definition of success in my life. I was in awe of those shiny objects around me, of people telling me what should I be, and trying to fit myself in society. But here am I, sharing my story as I hope you can start to create your own.
    So today, I’m inviting you to listen to this episode as I explore more about success. I’ll share tips on how you can start defining success, winning more in life, and just living who you really are and would want to be!
    What I Cover In This Episode:
    0:38 - I’m still on a SOSI high!
    3:07 - Reasons why you should have your own definition of success
    4:12 - How to have that ‘successful mindset’
    5:49 - Figuring out success for yourself
    8:34 - Best definitions of success
    10:12 - How to live your life to the fullest
    12:26 - Tips for staying focused on your desired outcomes
    17:05 - A step-by-step guide to defining your own success
    20:52 - The importance of having the courage
    23:47 - How to pursue success with your strengths
    29:22 - How to find your gift
    31:34 - The benefits of incorporating fun with success
    34:30 - How success can help you grow
    Quotes:
    “ Success is a degree or measure of succeeding, a favorable or desired outcome, and the accomplishment of an aim or a purpose. So just in that definition, it ties with an end outcome.”
    “... if you set that goal and you went all in. You grew. You expanded. And you learned to me you are a huge success.”
    “Success is having the courage to go for it and having the courage to go for what you want.”
    “...success is having fun on the way to your goals.”

    Leaving Something (or Someone) You Love

    Leaving Something (or Someone) You Love

    It’s all in the mind!
     
    Welcome to today’s episode of the ‘School of Self-Image’ Podcast with host and self-image coach, Tonya Leigh, where personal development meets style. This a go-to podcast for women who desire to transform their self-image so that they can create mind-blowing results in their lives.
     
    Will you agree if I say love can either be the most beautiful experience or the most painful when being left behind? These kinds of experiences are part of one’s life which is inevitable. It’s in our nature to feel and be part of the process. But at the end of the day, it’s still your choice.
     
    Leaving something (or someone) you love is a situation that most of us have experienced in life, right? As I know the emotions and thoughts might be overflowing, but you really have to decide whether to be stuck where you are or make a stand to move forward with your life.
     
    It all comes back to your choice ~ are you gonna be the same version of yourself forever? Or are you gonna leap yourself up, act smart, and accept the situation for good?
     
    So if you’re unsure yet of which one to choose, listen to find out how you can turn this leaving situation into something positive and bright!



    What I Cover In This Episode:
    1:34 - How to figure out the reason you’re leaving
    4:17 - Why you should start to take responsibility
    6:10 - How to know if a person, situation, or experience belongs in your future
    8:29 - The importance of having a niche
    10:17 - Pointers #1: Don’t second guess yourself
    12:26 - Pointers #2: Be ready and be willing to feel the discomfort of leaving
    14:29 - Pointers #3: Spend time being grateful for that person or that situation
    16:41 - Pointers #4: Make sure to have your own back
    17:51 - Pointers #5: Be okay with people being upset and disappointed
    18:04 - Pointers #6: Have the time to look toward where you're going
    21:24 - What is your greatest act of love



    Quotes:
    “You are your own answer.”
    “Here's the secret, the success is within you. As when you have a successful self-image, you can make any niche work.”
    “Just make sure you're leaving for the right reason. You are leaving so that you can grow and evolve and place yourself in expansive environments. You're not leaving to find something outside of you to fix your feelings.”
    “You get to decide how you feel no matter where you are. And you can also place yourself in places where it's so much easier to feel the way you want to feel.”

    5 Standards To Upgrade Immediately

    5 Standards To Upgrade Immediately

    Don’t settle for less. It will always be You VS You!
     
    Welcome to today’s episode of the ‘School of Self-Image’ Podcast with host and self-image coach, Tonya Leigh, where personal development meets style. This a go-to podcast for women who desire to transform their self-image so that they can create mind-blowing results in their lives.
     
    Most of you can resonate that we compare ourselves to others without even knowing it ~ I wish I can achieve so much at an early young age as her. I wish I have a successful career just like her. I wish I can look more radiant as she is. I wish I didn’t settle for less than I deserved. Stop wishing and start doing it for yourself.
     
    I strongly believe that when you set high standards, you can raise your expectation of what’s possible. You begin expecting more from yourself, more from your actions, and more from the people around you.
     
    Setting standards is the topic I want to highlight today. Let me share the importance of having standards in your life, how setting standards high can help boost your self-image, and how to be your ideal woman. This works for me and will definitely work for you too!
     
    So, make sure to grab a pen and paper and start upgrading these five standards immediately. All that and more when you listen to this episode!



    What I Cover In This Episode:
    0:48 - The importance of having standards in life
    2:14 - The definition of a standard of what is considered to be normal or average
    5:13 - How to change your self-image
    6:56 - #1: Set high self-opinion standards
    10:34 - #2: Set your style minimums
    14:03 - #3: Set how you should do self-care
    16:39 - #4: Set what you feed your mind
    19:57 - #5: Set your people standards



    Quotes:
    “...life does not give you what you want. It gives you what you expect and what you expect is a reflection of your standards.”
    “One of the stories that it reinforced for myself is that I shouldn't want for too much.”
    “The things around you are affecting you. The things outside of you if you ingest them, become you.” 
    “As you raise your standards, as you raise what you expect and what's normal for you, the universe will begin to mirror that back to you.”

    5 Investments That Have Changed My Self-Image

    5 Investments That Have Changed My Self-Image

    5 Investments That Have Changed My Self-Image
    Summary:
     
    Invest in yourself, it pays the best interest!
     
    Welcome to today’s episode of the ‘School of Self-Image’ Podcast with host and self-image coach, Tonya Leigh, where personal development meets style. This a go-to podcast for women who desire to transform their self-image so that they can create mind-blowing results in their lives.
     
    When I talk about investments, probably your first thought would be about money and getting rich. Yes, it is part of taking a leap but there’s more than that. Investments may come in different forms ~ one of which is investing with yourself.
     
    Investing in yourself should have a positive impact on boosting confidence and self-esteem. As you equip yourself with new knowledge and skills, you gain more focus for your self-development. This is a great opportunity to know yourself better.
     
    So today, let me share some of the best investments that changed my life, and I hope you can learn a thing or two!



    What I Cover In This Episode:
    1:43 - Why NOW is the best time to invest in yourself
    5:01 - How to deal with scarcity
    7:29 - Let’s talk about money and investments
    10:55 - #1:Invest with coaching
    15:16 - #2: Invest with your style
    18:17 - #3: Invest with your own space
    25:19 - #4: Invest in hiring an assistant
    29:13 - #5: Invest in working with a tax and business attorney
    33:50 - Join the challenge in The School of Self-Image



    Quotes:
    “We open up when everyone is afraid. We find our peace when everybody's clinging and hanging on out of fear. We let go out of faith. And I will tell you that way of a being helps us to transcend all that's happening in reality and it helps us to create a new reality.”
    “If you're full of scarcity, if you're worried, it's the perfect time to invest in yourself. You are your greatest asset…”
    “...some of you may argue that you don't need to make investments to change your thoughts and this is true. You don't need to do anything. You can attempt to do this work without investing time, money, or energy into anything. But without investments in yourself, you will slow your progress and you will make it so much harder.”

Love Tonya!

Tonya, Bless you and thank you for helping to bring feminine back. I enjoy your podcast and your insights to help women be a better version of themselves. Keep up your great work!

In Full Immersion Mode

Discovered this podcast beginning of the year. Listened to a few but didn’t do anything for me at the time I listened. Then about 4 months ago I found her ad for SOSI clicked and joined for the year!! My pulse was raising and was wondering why I did that. I justified it as an investment on my self. The membership sat there for the first month. I was waiting for I don’t know what (like i do sometimes with a gym membership). I decided to use and see what I could get from it. I realized there is a wealth of wisdom and information that Tonya shares! And LITTLE DID I KNOW but I would become a Tonya Leigh and SOSI super fan. For the past 2 months I’ve been literally in full immersion of the program and podcast. I’m hardly listening to anything else. My time and money investment is worth it! So good! Thank you SOSI !!
