JOIN THE TRIBE! Although growing and pushing yourself to be a better person can be wildly fulfilling, it isn't without an obstacle or twelve. For many people (probably you), they find themselves at odds with a few peeps in their world who simply "don't get" this whole personal development thing. In fact, they may actually really like the old, unhealthy, un-boundaried, people-pleaser version of YOU. If you're comin' up against this racket, honey, you are certainly not alone. When you start seeing awesome changes in your life, you #natch want to share those insights with the people you're closest to. But, more often than not, you're met with "that's nice for you" or even more common, "what's all this woo-woo, hippie shit you're into lately?" In this episode, I address six things to keep in mind as you start sharing your new-found enlightenment with your nay-saying friends and fam. You'll learn specific ways to address these peeps, how to tweak your approach to get the response you're looking for, and what to do if you need to lay down some badass boundaries. This pod explores: How to have compassion for your friends and fam who think you're now a part of some internet cult The #1 thing you MUST watch for when you approach people with tools you KNOW would help them out Why you need to find like-minded people who've drank the same "koolaid" and where to find them REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! DEEP, DOWN + DIRTY: THE TRIBE Join me for a 12-week, group coaching immersion designed to take you from struggling in the land of "shoulds", guilt trips, and comparison to flying on the wings of confidence, courage, and self-love. Imagine waking up feeling confident and proud of yourself! Hello! Or how about telling someone "No, I'm not available for your event" and feeling Not. An. Ounce. Of. Guilt. Plus, now your time is all freed up for mani/pedis and mimosas. Listen, when you actually LIKE who you are, you'll finally start the biz you've been too fearful to start, finally get back in shape + love your hot bod at the same time, and/or have time for the shit you really want in your life: like finally signing up for roller derby or planning that trip to Italy. #grazie Get ready to g
Rated 5 out of
Refreshing, engaging and downright enjoyable ways to improve your life. Free! What more could you ask?
Amy and Mr Smith provide love and life advice you can really take to the bank. I tune in to every pod, even if I don't think it's directly relevant to me. Nine times out of ten, I learn something new, or have some new insight, that gives me a shove in the right direction. Plus, it's always so much fun. These guys love to laugh, and make their listeners laugh, too.
When it comes to the life coaching part, don't expect hand holding or baby steps. Amy tells it to you straight. Reeeeeeeally straight. But only in the way that your best friend would. That's what the pod is like - screwing up your courage to talk to two great friends about your inner worries, and then realising it's not so bad after all and heck, you can even do something about those worries.
Every episode is a joy to listen to. Trust The Joy Junkie.
