057 | How To Change Your Beliefs
Who we are starts with the beliefs that we hold, what we believe is true of ourselves.
What beliefs do you hold?
What does your bank account say about the beliefs that you hold?
What does your body and health say about the beliefs that you hold?
What do your relationships say about the beliefs that you hold?
Ask yourself, “What are the beliefs that I would need to hold for me to live the life that I want, to create the business that I want, to create my dream life?” – the dream life that you are perfectly capable of creating for yourself.
In this episode, I share the origins of where our beliefs usually come from, how to identify, question and examine them, and ultimately how we can change what needs to be changed for us to step into our dream life.
056 | 4 Keys to Get Off the Bench and Step Into Your Dream Life
My father used to say to me all the time, “Sandra, your success will have no meaning unless you bring others with you.”
In my journey, I had gotten carried away by the quest for more and more – thinking that my happiness would lie at the other end of more.
If I could just make more money.
If I could just have more shoes.
If I could just get the next dream car.
And as I checked off each of those milestones, it was empty. It was hollow.
What was it that I was doing to fulfill the words that my father had said to me about bringing others with me?
It took me a really long time to get to the point where I figured out what my purpose was. I realized that we all are looking for purpose in our lives. We all want to do something that means something in the world, and what that looks like is going to be very different.
For some people, it's speaking on world stages. For other people, it's just being the best mother that they can be to their family, raising their children the best that they know how. But for many of us women, we stop ourselves from going after the things that we dream of, because we don't think we're good enough, or society tells us that this should be the dream that we want for ourselves, even though we know deep down that it's not.
What does it take for us to get to the point where we can get off the bench and step into our purpose and dream life?
In this episode, I share four keys on what it would take for us to step into the game of life, where you can truly start to live a life that is aligned with who you are meant to be and truly live a life that is aligned with your purpose.

054 | The only person who could ever complete you is YOU
This episode was taken from Sandra’s Instagram Live broadcast the day before Valentine’s Day.
We are sharing it here because she delivers a very powerful message that everyone needs to hear.
- The WORTHY Team
We have been fed this romantic notion about someone ‘completing’ you. Who remembers the famous line from Jerry Maguire – “You complete me.” That is the kind of love that we are sometimes looking for – someone who completes us.
But that's not true. The only person who can ever complete you is you. The only person who can give you the love that you deserve is you.
053 | What If the PEACE we're looking for all starts with us?
It's really challenging not to feel overwhelmed, overcome, despondent, and sad with all of the things that are happening in the world.
Oftentimes when things are going so horribly wrong, whether it's in our personal lives, or whether it's in the world at large, we often look to large solutions.
We're looking for world leaders to step in and fix things and go to the United Nations.
We're looking for bosses.
We’re looking for really big things.
For most of my school life, I went to a convent school. I wasn't Catholic growing up, but I went to a convent school because it was one of the best schools in the city that I lived in. I learned many prayers, many of which I have forgotten, but the one that has stayed with me and one that I have come back to over and over again. It has been the prayer of St. Francis.
Even without coming from a religious perspective, I think that this prayer had some of the most profound words when it comes to looking for the solutions that we all so desperately want. It has all to do with starting with ourselves.
052 | 3 Reasons Jealousy Is NOT A Bad Thing
Have you ever been jealous of somebody else's success? Have you ever felt jealous of someone who achieved something that you wanted? I'll put my hand up because, yes, I have felt jealous of other people's success.
As good little girls, we were taught that being jealous is a bad thing. I'm a preacher's kid too, and in church we were taught that it is evil to even want something that someone else has. Envy is a bad thing.
You do not want to feel those bad feelings, and yet, all feelings are valid. And so when we say to ourselves, “Don't feel jealous,” we are suppressing our feelings. When we suppress our feelings, bad things happen. When we don't process our feelings and they just stay stuck in our bodies, unprocessed feelings lead to so many issues, including physical manifestations as disease.
And so why do I think that being jealous is a good thing?
Let’s try to unpack why we feel jealous. In this episode, I share three reasons that I think we primarily feel jealous, and how to change our mindset of these reasons into something good that can help you achieve your goals.
Worthy of your Time and Attention!!!
I love the podcast music! I am on the # 4 or the May 4th episode and my thoughts so far are that I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to self reflect about ways to make improvements in their mindset, habits, goals, career or relationships.
Words I use of to describe the podcast are, Smart, Dynamic, Inspiring, Encouraging, Enlightening.
I laughed when Sandra used the word Buttercup 😂.
“To be list.” So insightful.
Sandra referenced Don Miguel Ruiz - I knew there was a reason I was drawn to her stories, words, and wisdom.
Episode number 5 was so good! It reminded me to be what I needed for others. Society has told us that we are not complete without a man for soooo long. While marriage is a sacred gift… it’s also a lot of hard work. These tips are gold! Episode 25 is a MUST SHARE ! Share it with the women in your life … single or married. Then open up conversations of what it really takes to nurture a happy marriage but also the benefits of staying single. ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you! This podcast is really encouraging.
