35 episodes

I am Nikki, a mom of two. I believe that our childhood experiences shape us as adults and can help empower our knowledge and actions as parents.
Are there things you wish someone had told you the truth about? Things you had to learn on your own but the experience would have been much easier if someone had warned you about it or told you the honest truth about it.
I wish I knew more about things. I wish I knew more about marriage before I got married, or I wish I knew more about parenting before I became a parent.

In each episode, we’ll have conversations with other women, and sometimes men, about childhood lessons learned and lessons lost and how they impact us. Hear from real women as they discuss relationships with their mothers, their relationships with their children, what they learned from their mothers, what they teach their children. We dive into other relationships, like marriage, relationships with other women, struggles with anxiety, fear of failure, and successes.
What I Wish is an excellent opportunity to learn from other women and hear how all mothers have shared experiences. Are you ready to find deep meaning in parenting?

We’ll share real-life tips and approaches to navigating life, using what we wish we knew to help us be better parents and better to ourselves. My goal is to help mothers and daughters have a good relationship from a young age into adulthood. Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/what-i-wish/support

    Bravery is a Skill: Listening to your own voice.

    Bravery is a Skill: Listening to your own voice.

    On this episode of What I Wish My Mother Taught Me, I chat with
    Nicole Trick-Steinbach about the process of building bravery is built upon three pillars: acknowledging and embracing one's emotions, creating an action plan, and taking accountability for one's own actions and dreams.


    The first pillar emphasizes the importance of truly connecting with and processing one's emotions, as this is often overlooked in today's society. Feeling one's feelings is a necessary step in building bravery.


    The second pillar involves creating an action plan, setting goals, and taking consistent action towards those goals. It requires stepping out of one's comfort zone and embracing risks and challenges. Building momentum and moving forward, even in the face of setbacks, is key.


    The third pillar centers around taking responsibility for one's choices and actions, as well as taking ownership of one's dreams and aspirations. It is about recognizing the power to shape one's own life and make things happen. Accountability is not about controlling others, but rather about self-governance and personal growth.

    Overall, building bravery encompasses emotional awareness, proactive planning, and personal responsibility. It is a skill that can be applied to various aspects of life, such as careers, relationships, and personal growth. By embracing these three pillars, individuals can cultivate the courage and resilience needed to overcome challenges and pursue their dreams.
