Ep. 14 Take Charge Of Your Future: Create Your Own Table The Unlock Lab

    • Careers

Summary

Are you the kind of person who wants to be “In the room where it happens?” In this empowering installment, I dive into the transformative concept of "creating your own table." I explore the idea that we don't always have to wait to be invited to the proverbial table of life. Instead, we have the power to craft our own spaces, conversations, and initiatives in alignment with our deepest desires. In this episode, I invite you to consider your own long-held aspirations and embrace the courage to take action, while offering practical advice on enlisting support and redefining the narratives that hold us back. Get ready to feel inspired and motivated to sow the seeds of your dreams this spring as you tune in to The Unlock Lab!



Key Moments

00:01 Reject rugged individualism, seek
support for success.

03:43 Bring people together, create, and
making changes.

09:16 Support others and ask for help - it’s
inspiring to them as well.

11:07 The power of reciprocity

14:13 You have control to create your world.

15:38 Push past your inner critic, inner
narrative and self-doubt.

17:06 Taking the action might bring you to what’s
more pertinent on your path.

16:41 Push past disappointment and fear to
honor your whisper.



Tosca Quotables

(00:01) The Myth of Rugged Individualism: "This idea of rugged individualism; ”do it all yourself” and “don't ask for help unless you're literally falling off the damn cliff”. That way of thinking doesn't serve anybody. It certainly doesn't serve you, and it doesn't serve the people that actually want to support you."



(11:07) The Power of Reciprocity: "And part of this is when you give people the opportunity to give to you, not only do you receive, but they receive, too." 



(13:39) Fuel for Change: "If you've been complaining, if you've been frustrated, if you're pissed off about the way things are, great. That is fuel."



(15:38) Embracing Creativity Despite Inner Criticism: "Take a micro step - it can make a world of difference to honoring what it is that you need to create. And if there's an inner critic coming up...remember that nobody does it the way you do it. Nobody has the specific experience you have. Your personality, how you share yourself. It matters that you bring it forth. There is a reason for you to bring it to the world."
