Stepping into one's own personal power is something that I have become passionate about over the last couple of years. It was something I struggled with for a long time; being a follower throughout much of my teens and 20's, wanting to desperately please others, not feeling like I "fit in", and repressing what I really wanted to say.
I have transformed my way of being, with a lot of hard work, into a woman who can now own her confidence, voice, and character. I now embrace what makes me different, the spiritual side of myself, and the fact that I don't like to conform. It is rather freeing, and allows me to be who I am.
Don't get me wrong, this is not a perfect process, nor will it ever be. There are days where I do doubt myself, that I allow a naysayer to get into my head, or feel completely ungrounded. However, I spend many more days now in the light than in the shadows. I don't want to ever go back. And I thank all thank all the people who were my support and mentors along the way.
Here's the thing.... I couldn't transform myself without support, coaching, and guidance from others. Others who could call me out on my shit, be a mirror for me, and redirect me when I was floundering. There is no such thing as "doing it on my own". Humans were not designed that way. That is why I do what I do. To help others tap into their spirit and soar.
I recently had the honor of being interviewed by Kajay at Personal Development Genesis, a website that helps people live a happy, healthy, and vibrant life. In this interview I talk a lot about stepping into your own power, building confidence, and the tools I have used along the way to do so.
Here are the key points covered in the interview:
- how to be more comfortable with change
- how to find more confidence
- creating positive habits
- how to get past negative thinking
- letting go of comparing yourself to others
- being present and not falling into the "when I.." trap
- people pleasing
- finding your purpose
