Are you a millennial that's been feeling lost? I'm talkin' to you, my friend! If you've ever gotten to a point where you don't know who you are, what's important to you, or what you want the next part of your life to look like, then this episode is for you. When I knew I wanted to leave my dreaded soul-sucking career, I felt lost. I let that title become my identity. My work consumed me, and I felt directionless without it. After *lots* of trial and error, I realized there were seven main things that I did to re-discover who I was. In this episode, I'll walk you through each of the seven steps, and I'm doing something a little different in this episode, I'm giving you action items to do after each step. I wanted to make sure this episode was something you could start taking action on right away, so I'll give you the step you need to take to make that self-discovery step come to life for you.

I hope today's episode will give you some inspiration.

Have you ever got caught up in the idea of wanting to "find meaningful work"?  Yup. Me too. I had the best intentions, though. I wanted to do something with the 40 hours a week I spent at work helping the world (at least in some small way!). But I realized there was something I should have thought instead that would have helped me narrow down EXACTLY what I wanted to do. And I'm sharing all that in today's episode. Today you'll hear: How being clear with precisely what you want in your work will help you in the long run How to implement this idea into either starting your own business OR a new career change.

Welcome to the re-birth episode! --  Ok, a bit dramatic... but not too far off! I've recently had an incredible and life-changing call with a coach and I've gotten crystal clear about who I am, what I do, who I help and how I show up in this world.  And it all has to do with helping you find YOUR purpose.  In this episode, we're chatting about:  Why I was crying all the time in the shower  What made me FINALLY quit my career I hated  My business journey so far  How I help other women find their purpose  and what the future of this show looks like.  In this episode, I use more curse words than normal. So if you need to, grab your headphones. I'm getting real and honest about my struggles up until now.  If this resonates with you, then you'll love my brand new and totally FREE resource called 5 Steps to Figure Out Your Purpose and Find Fulling Work. In this guide, you'll get clarity around what's actually important to you, how that affects your choice in career, and how to decide what to do after that.  You can find it at MonicaFrederick.com/guide
My guest today is getting honest about what happens when relationships hit rock bottom.  She talks about the crossroads she and her husband were at: either they fixed their relationship, or they separated. And they knew they didn’t want to separate.  So instead, they decided to do the work. And not just couples therapy, but they spent *6* hours a day in meditation to uncover hidden pain and to TRULY work on their issues. I know, I bet when you read the “spent 6 hours a day in meditation” you were probably like, “how the heck does that even work?!?”. I had that same question, and Petra goes all into what that looked like for her.  Ok, so if you know your relationship is in trouble and needs work, maybe 6 hours of meditation a day isn’t the answer for you. However, in this episode, Petra goes into what to do if you know you need to do the work. And spoiler alert, a LOT has to do with some much-needed self-reflection.  In this episode you’ll hear:  How to tell if it’s time for a separation or divorce  How to start meditation (even if you SWEAR you can’t)  How she had to let her ego go to grow  and more!  Not enough free time to listen in?

Ok, I know you've felt it.  The sting of rejection... This actually JUST happened to be the day before I recorded this episode and I wanted to share the exact steps I use to get over it.  In this episode you'll hear: Why your rejection is NOT tied to who you are and if you've failed Why you shouldn't be comparing yourself to other people Who you SHOULD compare yourself to instead and the golden, #1 question you should ALWAYS ask yourself!

This episode is a little different than past ones. Today I’m getting real about my journey with weight loss and how that’s affected my life. My decision to start focusing on my wellness was the catalyst for SO many changes in my life I never dreamed would happen. I started thinking I just wanted to only fit into my old jeans (and another reason why I’m *not* so proud of). In this episode you’ll hear: How my flimsy original motivation wasn’t enough to keep me consistent How I created a vision of what post-weight loss life would be like What I did to stay consistent with diet and exercise The valuable lessons I’ve learned since (*Spoiler Alert* it was wayyy more than just how to eat veggies and lift weights!)
