    Top Tools to Overcome a Fear of Judgment & Failure

    Top Tools to Overcome a Fear of Judgment & Failure

    The fear of failure is so often confused with the fear of judgment. Many people believe that the reason their life didn’t turn out the way they imagined is due  to fear of failure. But what if we told you that it’s actually the fear of judgment that holds countless people back? 
     
    From the time we are in utero, we are picking up language and behaviors, which ultimately wires our brain to think a certain way. While trauma has its place, it’s often our conditioning that hinders our ability to create the life we want. Our guest, Managing Partner at 1888 Ventures, Charles Robinson, joins us to discuss how to free yourself from the shackles of not only other people’s opinion but your own perception of what it takes to achieve greatness. In a world where it’s easier to theorize than to take action, it can be more difficult to take the necessary steps to become the best version of yourself. As morbid as it may sound, we all have a one way ticket out of here and we don’t know when the ticket will be called. How bad do you really want it? What are you willing to sacrifice? Also, respectfully, F anyone who tries to stand in your way. Tap in to this week’s episode to learn how to change your inner critic to your inner champion who gets shit done.

    How to create lasting change for stubborn people

    How to create lasting change for stubborn people

    With all the uncertainty that this life has to offer, the one thing that we can count on is the inevitably of change. There’s something about intentionally changing to a new default that can feel like a mini death to our mind and body. 
     
    And for stubborn people getting out of our own way is incredibly difficult. While all growth is change, not all change results is growth, so it may require more specific input to yield the output you desire. This week the ladies are here with just the strategy you have been looking for to change your life. With “The 7 Agents of Change”, you’re presented with a step-by-step guide that you can use to initiate and implement changes  in your daily life. Not only are you getting a breakdown during the episode, but you’ll also be able to pre-order the “7 Agents of Change” pack which will do an even deeper dive.

    Tools to make your marriage work after your “Wedding Day”

    Just about every married couple will tell you that marriage is hard work. Nowadays, it seems as though the emphasis is on the wedding and not so much on the subsequent days, months and hopefully years. 
     
    The perfect dress, the lavish venue and the overpriced food can easily overshadow the real preparation that is needed for a lasting marriage. You know we like to go straight to the source! We are joined this week by Dani’s husband, real estate investor, entrepreneur and co-founder of Fly Supply Clothing, Reginald Bourdeau. The newlyweds are here to offer a bit of transparency into what married life has been like for them after the honeymoon. From why it’s important NOT to pick your battles to how couples can set healthy boundaries to thrive, this episode is a masterclass in making your marriage not just work but flourish. Tap into this week’s episode for an open and honest conversation about love and marriage. The perfect marriage doesn’t exist. Your union is yours to discover and uncover over and over again so that you may fall in love over and over again. May the odds forever be in your favor.

    How to Overcome Childhood Trauma

    How to Overcome Childhood Trauma

    Becoming the best version of yourself can feel damn near impossible when your childhood trauma still affects you on so many levels. Recognizing how your trauma shows up and working through your triggers is the beginning of reparenting yourself to reframe your childhood.  
    It’s probably safe to assume that most of us have experienced trauma throughout our children on varying levels from mild to severe. Since trauma is not only what happened to us but rather how we perceive what happened, it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly when and how the damage was done. Our guest, trauma expert and holistic therapist, Edit B Kiss, joins us to discuss how to heal from deep wounds in order to lead a life filled with love, joy and purpose. Edit believes that it is possible to not allow our triggers to wreak havoc on not only our lives and relationships, but also our physical health. Our past can feel like a sentence to forever live a life trying to escape it. Edit is here to give us hope and tools that actually work to move the needle forward on your healing journey. Tap in to this week’s episode to learn how to rewrite your past in hopes of a better future.

    KEY POINTS & QUOTES:
    “I’m powerful enough to change my perspective.”
    Trauma plays a role in helping you evolve and learn.
    As a parent, it is important that you lead by example in the way you treat others and by the way to live your life. 
    People should learn how they best deal with trauma in order to find the modality that works for them. 
    Being reactive to your triggers on a daily basis is a sign that you have unresolved trauma.

    Do This to Reclaim Your Power & Release Unhealthy Attachments

    Do This to Reclaim Your Power & Release Unhealthy Attachments

    Reclaiming your power and releasing unhealthy attachments is possible, even when you’re afraid you cannot. Removing toxic energy and making intentional changes and choices starts first with owning the power we all hold inside.
     
    Between pandemics, natural disasters and actual wars going on, it’s no wonder so many of us are riddled with feelings of anxiety, despair and hopelessness. With the collective nervous system in a constant state of flight, fight or fawn, we have to become intentional about how we choose to deal as we attempt to heal and move forward. Our guest, blogger, content creator and host of the podcast “How I See it”, Han Huante, joins us to discuss how being unapologetic and authentic helps her overcome feeling powerless. When your heart, head and your actions align, it becomes easier to honor your highest self and step into every room as HER. We have all had moments where we give our power away or it is taken from us against our will. But life is not what happens to you, it’s about how you react that matters. Han is here to give you the girl’s girl pep talk you need to get off your ass and make the changes necessary to be the best version of yourself. No excuses. Tap on in to this week’s episode to be reminded of your power and how to stand in it.

    How to Stop Wasting Your Time & Your Life

    How to Stop Wasting Your Time & Your Life

    Tap in to learn valuable tools to shift your mindset, adjust your habits, and stop wasting your time and your life.
     
    Vera Wang didn’t design her first dress until she was 40. Henry Ford didn’t create the revolutionary Model T car until age 45. Samuel Jackson didn’t land his award-winning role in Spike Lee’s “Jungle Fever”, which catapulted his acting career, until age 43. Controversial as she is, Kris Jenner didn’t pitch the hit show “Keeping up with the Kardashians” to E! Network until she was 52 and we see what happened there. The point is, it’s never too late to be who you might have been. It’s actually not ok to give up and damn yourself to a life of mediocrity. Alechia believes it’s a slap in the face to the creator who gave you gifts that you should use to elevate your life and serve humanity but instead you choose to squander them and keep them to yourself. If you’re good with some tough love, then you need to come on in and have a seat. Tap into this week’s episode for some invaluable tips on how to reclaim any time you feel you may have wasted and how to live your best life at any age. Yes, you have the time. No, your life doesn’t HAVE to stay the same. Your moment is here and the time is NOW.

La Grice ,

Sooo caught up… like Usher

Idk how your podcast always ended up getting pushed down amongst the gazillion others that I follow but it finally stood out with this episode. And I was doing yoga while listening. But the way that it brought a light to my session and put an extra pep in my step for the day. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The pattern that I used to find myself stuck in and lost in a daze it was all laid out for me. I’m not even sure that I finished my yoga session that morning after that huge “A-ha” moment.
No longer am I painted the color of confusion. Thank you ladies for this one.

Relatable Content!

These ladies talk about real, relatable content. Specifically the Villainous Victims episode. And it’s true…we are all villains in someone else’s story, which can be tough to admit. But necessary to understand.
