EP. 53 What‘s Your Go All In Pattern?

November 22, 2021

I love to observe my clients and share with them the patterns that I notice. Their habits, their groove because once we know our patterns, we can prepare for it. 

In episode 51 we discussed our quit pattern. This is the point where we often find ourselves giving up and quitting. We discuss the importance of identifying this pattern because once we know where or when we tend to give up, we can address it by using thought work to explore our limiting beliefs so they can be released really quickly and help us to remove mental obstacles that are stopping us from reaching our goals. 

This week I want to discuss our go all-in pattern. This is the point where you decide that you are all in on a goal and you're fully committed. So for you, when do you decide to go all-in? Is it when you know all the what if’s and solve for them? Is it after you receive external validation and gather others people's opinions? Or is it when you have evidence that you will succeed?

Whatever it is, it's ok. There is nothing wrong. We just need to identify our pattern so that we can then create thought disruptors, like plans and protocols to redirect our pathways and decide to go all-in now without the disruptors stopping us.

Listen in to learn more.

EP. 52 The Value of Coaching with Ashley Rhodes

EP. 52 The Value of Coaching with Ashley Rhodes

November 15, 2021

Self-discovery is a process where a person is guided, through self-questioning and examination of one's own thoughts, words, and actions, in order to reach their own conclusions regarding who they truly are. This is at the core of the work that our guest, Ashley Rhodes, focuses on in her practice as a life coach. 

Through her own growth, Ashley discovered that part of her work here in this lifetime is to help guide others to a life they desire. A life where they embody the power and skills to create more joy, acceptance, ease, and love of self. She believes that coaching allows for space to safely and honestly work through what’s holding you back from what is possible in your life. She works with people who feel disconnected and dissatisfied in their lives and helps them master intentionality to create the life that they truly love living.

Listen in as we discuss her experience with coaching from the perspective of a coach and a client and how it has allowed for some major breakthroughs in her life.

EP. 51 What’s Your Quit Pattern?

EP. 51 What’s Your Quit Pattern?

November 8, 2021

Do you find yourself quitting things a lot?  Whatever it is we want to achieve in life, no matter how much we want it, there will always be times when we hit a challenging period, our motivation hits a wall and we feel like giving up. This is because by default, our mindsets and thought patterns play out over and over again throughout our life. If we don’t identify and change them we're likely to repeat exactly the same pattern again.

That's why it is important for us to identify our quit pattern. Once we know where or when we tend to give up, we can address it by using thought work to explore our limiting beliefs so they can be released really quickly and help us to remove mental obstacles that are stopping us from reaching our goals.

EP.‌ ‌50‌ ‌Why‌ ‌Going‌ ‌From‌ ‌“goodt”‌ ‌to‌ ‌“gooder”‌ ‌is‌ ‌Hard‌

November 1, 2021

Have you ever noticed that when you are in a difficult situation the motivation that you need to get out of it seems to come easy compared to when you are in a good situation but you desire more? 

The thing is that going from bad to good is a different journey than going from good to better and it requires different motivation. While going from bad to good you are motivated by pain and discomfort but going from good to better you are already comfortable so you need a different strategy for motivation. There is a right and a wrong way to accomplish this and I want to help you make this journey with ease and joy.    

Listen in as I share some key strategies that you can implement to move from good to better without drama.

EP. 49 How We Can Use a “goodt” Past Against Ourselves

EP. 49 How We Can Use a “goodt” Past Against Ourselves

October 25, 2021

For the most part, we recognize that if our past was not so good, our brain tends to use it against us by constantly providing evidence of past mistakes to justify the current goal won't be realized. But if our past was “goodt” wouldn't we still have this problem?

The answer is yes. No matter how perfect your past is. No matter how well things line up, your brain will still use your past against you. Once we hit an obstacle we begin to say to ourselves “That big thing was hard, this should have been easy. Why am I struggling?” And we make it mean we’re not smart enough, we’re not predestined to do this thing. Listen, none of those things are true. Our brain is f***ing with us. Our history of success can equally be used against us and when we recognize that this is happening we must slow down and reroute our thoughts. Tune in to learn how.

EP. 48 The Value of Coaching with Simone Williams

EP. 48 The Value of Coaching with Simone Williams

October 18, 2021

Black women are forced to conquer dual challenges in the workplace as members of two minority groups. We have to deal with the disadvantages of not just being a woman, but also being black. I’d like us to discuss how black professional women can break barriers and achieve success. 

I am joined today by my client Simone. We are chatting about her experience with coaching after dealing with several losses in her personal life and feeling displaced in her professional life. She explains how shifting her mindset has proved to be such a powerful thing because by changing her mindset there has been a huge impact on her outcomes. It’s time to quiet the self-doubting voices in your head so that you can feel empowered and find success.

EP. 47 When Your Brain Says NO, You Say YAS

EP. 47 When Your Brain Says NO, You Say YAS

October 11, 2021

Today I want to continue our conversation about desire. I want to talk about another reason why we dampen our success expectancy. We've been taught that our future success is based on how successful we have been in the past. The thing is, if most of us looked to our past to determine our future success, we would not have any hope of creating the desires of our hearts because our brain is going to tell us every little detail about our failures. 

Can I tell you something? Our past has absolutely nothing to do with our ability to create in the future. We can create desire, whatever it is that we want. Lean into it. It's possible. Don't allow your brain to give you probability thoughts. When our brain is saying NO, we get to say YAS!

Listen in as we unpack this concept.

EP. 46 How To Deal With Disappointment

EP. 46 How To Deal With Disappointment

October 4, 2021

Disappointment is the unhappiness you feel from the failure of something hoped for or expected to happen. This is the internal fear that you experience when it comes to wanting and desiring more. For a lot of us, we don't want to desire because we're unwilling to experience disappointment.

So in this episode, I want to help us understand the disappointment in such a way that we are okay with experiencing it. When we put it all together we have to understand our cultural history, which is the danger of desire, the immortality of desire, greed,  and our lack of tools for preparing ourselves for experiencing discomfort, disappointment. Once we understand this we can move on to the work of cultivating desire.  

Listen in as I share three ways that you can deal with the fear of disappointment that is dampening your desire.

EP. 45 The Reason Why You Are Suppressing Your Desire

EP. 45 The Reason Why You Are Suppressing Your Desire

September 27, 2021

In episode 44 we talked about how vital it is for us to have desire yet having desire is often viewed as greed. I want to offer that we can be grateful and still desire more. It is the desire that moves us and gives our life direction. Without this continuous stream of desiring, there would be no reason to do anything. So if we want the thing, we have to create the desire to want it. And if we want to create the desire to want it, we have to make it safe for us to do so. 

With this realization, why is it that we still shy away from experiencing desire? The reason why we dampen our desire is to avoid a specific feeling. It’s what we feel when our expectations for the desired outcome are dashed. This reason is totally in our control and that is what I want to unravel in this episode. Listen in to learn more.

EP. 44 The One Emotion That Scares The Sh*t Out Of Us And Why

September 20, 2021

If we want to attract a thing into our lives, it's first necessary to have a deep, burning desire for it. Desire is a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen. It is the mental state that is needed to cultivate anything for us at all. Such as those big goals that we have. 

We may believe that it's only natural for people to want all manner of things, but often the concentrated mental effort needed to put into motion the forces of circumstance to bring the desired goal/dream from the mental realm into the physical is not there. This lack of desire is true for WOC. Desire is the one emotion that scares the shit out of us. And today, I want to talk about why that is.
