Empower your future not your fears

After eight hours of yoga training the other day, I “grounded” by watching an episode of Project Runway. During this episode a talented designer, Samantha, lost the runway challenge.

The pain she wore on her face reflected more than the loss. She knew she didn’t leave it all on the runway. She held back, dumbed down, played it safe. Her losing design wasn’t something that genuinely reflected her talents as a designer.

Her immediate response was, “Self-doubt, it’s really always been the thing that’s held me back. I held back because I was scared they wouldn’t get it.”

Master the Worthy Girl Mindset

Many outwardly successful, bright, beautiful women have a secret. Despite external appearances, they don’t feel good enough. That drives many of us to be overachievers, perfectionists, overly responsible, burnt out and more.

Living life this way creates internal pressure and stress. Because when our worth depends on external validation, we are only good enough when we are succeeding. It’s a joy-sucking cycle.

So let’s talk about how we can change that…

Not feeling good enough? Try this…

Today I want to give you a taste of my secret sauce for overcoming moments of feeling like you’re not good enough. Obviously feeling unworthy is something that affects all of us, some more than others, but did ya know that it actually affects highly successful people as much if not more than the average Jane? Yup, it’s true.

Because for some of us (ahem, moi), we developed a pattern of striving for outward success to compensate for what we felt was lacking internally. Which on one hand is pretty cool – go us – we didn’t just sit on our butts and do nothing. On the other hand, it’s not so bueno because it leads to a constant cycle of joy sucking and exhaustion. If a key pillar of our worth is based on success, then we are fulfilled only when we’re winning, achieving, succeeding. Make sense?

So, here’s a few ways I’ve learned to deal with the “unworthies” (as I call them) when they come knocking…

Enough of Not Being Enough

Ladies, we need to talk.

On Monday I sent an email out to my subscribers asking what their number one struggle is. (By the way, please feel free to email or private message me on FB if you’d like to share your #1 struggle– I’m using this information to build out future programs including some free ones). The #1 thing I heard was: I don’t feel good enough.

5 Ways to Feel More Self-Worth and Less Self-Judgment

I’m not good enough. I’m a failure. I should be better at (everything). I’m afraid to start because I might fail. What if I make the wrong choice? In the last week, I’ve heard numerous {amazing, powerful, strong} women share these words with me. It’s easy for me to listen to them thinking, of course you are good enough! Of course you’ll make the right choice! Of course you’ll be successful! I already see their success. I already see their talent. I already have confidence in them. But it’s easier to see for others what we can’t see for ourselves.

I’ve been on the other side of that conversation. I know what its like to feel like you’re not enough. This self-doubt and lack of self-worth is our ego at work, using its primary tool, judgment. It is sneaky and shows up in so many ways, including the following:
