052: BFF Thoughts

2020-04-0231:57

Since you’re probably social distancing at home, then you’ve got LOTS of time with being with your emotions… and your thoughts. If you don’t like being alone with your thoughts (or you just don’t like yourself) then it’s stemming from what’s happening inside your head. In this episode, I’ll show you how to change your thoughts about yourself with a concept I created called “BFF Thoughts”. Here's what you'll learn in this episode: The reason why you don't like being alone with your thoughts and if you don't like yourself, where that's coming from.  What BFF thoughts and Frenemy thoughts are and how one of these is sabotaging you.  How respecting the most important relationship you'll ever have is the KEY to getting the results you want in your life.  Make sure to check out today's show notes over at MonicaFrederick.com/ep52 to for the blog post, links mentioned and the transcript.
