How this looks for each person is different and while it's easy to compare other people's methods of "letting go" to your own, it's so important to remember that your way of "letting go" is special to you and GOOD. So don't worry, stop comparing, and keep going. Rate and review this podcast. Every comment matters! Follow me on Instagram @becca.lynn.johnson

Sheli Gartman: We've Gotta Make This Life Worth Living
I can’t think of a better come-back podcast than this interview I had with CEO/Founder of Women Ignite International, Sheli Gartman. I had the privilege of having coffee with Sheli a couple of months ago and she poured some much-needed belief into my life exactly when I needed it most. I have often spoken the words “it’s okay to lean on the belief of others while you grow your own” and she’s a true example of fulfilling that role in my life. As the bio of her website reads: “Sheli Gartman (“Sheli G”) has been inspiring and educating businesses, teams and individuals for the past 15 years. She loves people and is constantly inspired by the souls that come into her life and seeing their potential bloom and brighten the world. Sheli is an international speaker, dynamic business consultant, and personal development facilitator. From large to small businesses, entrepreneurs, and non-profits, Sheli engages and challenges her audiences with the tools and methods to activate their highest strengths for lasting results. It’s not enough to say she is passionate about this work: it’s not work, it’s her passion. This is about changing the world.” I’ll tell you this, that bio speaks absolute truth of who Sheli is. And I know this conversation will inspire you. As Sheli says towards the end of this podcast, “we’ve gotta make this life worth living.” Tune in as she shares her story and as we cover everything from how our convictions give us confidence to pivot, to the importance of having mentors, intentionality in our pursuit of personal growth, and the importance of grace along the way. I do want to take a moment to recognize that Sheli mentions her extraordinary dad throughout this podcast. During the time this interview was recorded, her precious dad was in the hospital and has since passed. I know he’s looking down on Sheli and is so incredibly proud of her for the woman she is and the impact she is having and will continue to have in this world. In a way, this conversation is a real tribute to her father. And for that, I believe it’ll be cherished forever. Sheli is a true example of a life lived Rooted In Reason™. Enjoy this conversation.

It Does Not Start With Why
Contrary to popular belief in the professional development space, I believe that discovering your purpose should not start with finding your “why.” Simon Sinek, an influencer in this space and the person who started a movement around this concept, states that “people like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY.” While yes, each of these influential leaders knew exactly why they pursued the passions they felt called to, I suggest that it was not a “why” that initially caused them to move. They were surely inspired by their why, and it most definitely rooted them as they pursued their dreams, but I would suggest this… It started with WHO. I would contend that these influencers knew exactly who they were which helped root them in their reasons WHY. Unless we know who we are, identifying and truly understanding our why will oftentimes be met with doubt and resistance. I know this. I have lived it. I actually lived in this space of doubt for 5 years of an entrepreneurial endeavor. It wasn’t until I did the work to truly discover who I was that my “why” became meaningful, significant, and deeply rooted allowing me to become unstoppable. In Episode 11 of the Rooted In Reason Podcast, I share a personal experience that showcases why starting with why, and digging into people’s why, is not always the best place to start. Unless we truly know who we are, we will question everything about why we do the things we do and why we feel called to the things we feel called to. Start with Who. Who are you? What are the gifts, strengths, and passions God has given you? Start there!! Then, as you grow in the confidence of who you were created to be you’ll become deeply rooted in the reasons (why) behind everything you do. Tune in as I share a meaningful example of how starting with “why” can actually cause more harm than good if we don’t first understand who we are. It does not start with why. It starts with WHO.

The Importance of Baby Steps
Do you have a big vision for your life? Got goals? Dreams? Things you really want to achieve? Does thinking about those BIG things ever bring on fear, doubt, or uncertainty. I get that. I know what it feels like to have vision and goals that are so big that it's literally paralyzing to even think about how you are going to achieve them. Thank goodness for the movie, "What About Bob!" That movie changed my life! I am not even kidding. Who would have thought? It also brought me a ton of joy because it's hilarious! But seriously, that movie taught me a SIMPLE and PRACTICAL tangible mindset I began applying into my life 15 years ago. Doing what I learned from that movie has helped me achieve and conquer some BIG VISIONS and BIG GOALS and I know it will help you too! Tune in as I share how "BOB", and this movie, changed my life. Be sure to rate, review, and share this if you feel it can bless others! I am rooting for you!
