    Embracing Change: Breaking Free from Limiting Beliefs

    Embracing Change: Breaking Free from Limiting Beliefs

    Embracing Change: Breaking Free from Limiting Beliefs
    Episode 148
    This podcast episode delves into the importance of challenging limiting beliefs for women of color to unlock their full potential. Santana Innis, a master certified coach, discusses the significance of identifying and questioning these beliefs.
    One common limiting belief Santana mentions is the notion that women of color must work twice as hard to achieve half as much. This belief stems from experiences of discrimination and inequality, particularly in the workplace. However, Santana emphasizes that this belief is not inherent or true; it is a belief system that can be challenged and changed.
    To challenge limiting beliefs, Santana suggests first identifying them. Women of color need to recognize beliefs that may hinder their progress, such as feelings of unworthiness or doubts about their capabilities. Once identified, it is important to explore the origins of these beliefs. Santana encourages individuals to examine why they hold these beliefs and how societal expectations or personal experiences have influenced them.
    Santana also highlights the importance of acknowledging the fear and vulnerability associated with challenging these beliefs.
    By challenging and freeing themselves from limiting beliefs, women of color can tap into their power and embrace their worthiness and capabilities. This process involves self-reflection, self-compassion, and a willingness to question and let go of beliefs that no longer serve them. Ultimately, by challenging these beliefs, women of color can create new narratives and pathways that align with their true potential and aspirations.
    This episode covers:
    [00:05:31] A journey of mindfulness.
    [00:19:02] Limiting beliefs and self-doubt.
    [00:23:09] Confirmation bias and cognitive brain science.
    [00:27:17-00:27:28] Taking a pause for opportunity.

    Self-Limiting Beliefs
    A journey of mindfulness.
    Mindfulness is awareness of one's internal states and surroundings and can help people avoid destructive or automatic habits and responses by learning to observe their thoughts, emotions, and other present-moment experiences without judging or reacting to them..
    Santana Innis: “I’m the daughter of a first generation Afro-Latino growing up in the inner city struggling with mental health, anxiety and knew there had to be another way. I found my first Thich Nhat Hanh book, The Miracles of Mindfulness. and had my new therapist which started a journey that's been going on for a decade. A journey of answering the call to always go inward when something hurts, don't hide, look inside.“
    Refocus: Mental wellness tips for the Black woman
    This journey led Santana to “answer the call to align her work life with her life's purpose”.

    AMBITION IN LIFE: The Power of Ambition and and Finding Fulfillment: Insights from Bianca B. King

    AMBITION IN LIFE: The Power of Ambition and and Finding Fulfillment: Insights from Bianca B. King
    Episode 146
    Tap in as Bianca B. King, CEO & Founder of Pretty Damn Ambitious, discusses a redefined version of ambition. She describes it as the joyful and diligent pursuit of success, informed by one's ideals. Bianca emphasizes that ambition should not be seen as a sacrifice or burden, but rather as a driving force that propels individuals towards their goals and purpose.
    According to Bianca, it is essential for individuals to evaluate their ambition and ensure that it aligns with their core values. Ambition should not push individuals to the point of exhaustion or unhappiness. Instead, it should be a source of joy and fulfillment.
    Bianca encourages women to dream big and not limit their expectations. She believes that societal expectations and the fear of being seen as unrealistic often lead women to temper their ambitions. However, she reminds listeners that the achievements and progress made by women today were made possible because of the dreams and ambitions of those who came before them.
     
    This episode covers:
    [00:01:38] Redefining ambition.
    [00:17:39] Dream lifestyle and fulfillment.
    [00:20:35] Personal power and influence.

Freedom Power

I’m grateful for this podcast and the few like it.
The content is always presented in such a digestible manner and really aides as a remedy to get me through my day.
There’s an usher to freedom in this podcast. I love the conversational aspect of how it’s presented and I can listen to it with full attention, all the while having my mind full of inspiration from the various topics. One of the most recent episodes has a great takeaway, “Progress not Perfection”.
That is so freeing! Thank you!
