Letting Go of Fear - 095

Letting Go of Fear - 095

2019-09-1000:51:4618

Not only does fear feel totally sucky,  fear robs us of our potential. Everyone has fear… and the way we experience it determines if we go for our dreams and lead a life we love, or we stay stuck and unfulfilled, and feel like we don’t have a purpose. Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/095 Fear is an emotional response to a perceived threat. So it can totally be a byproduct of our self-worth issues, but it goes even further, because it can attach itself to anything. One of the things we are most afraid of is the unknown… which means it can be difficult to take action on anything that is uncertain… which applies to everything we haven’t started yet. Our guest today is Monica Berg, author of Fear is Not an Option. She’s had an incredible life story. 17  years  ago  she gave birth to a  boy with special needs and in that moment, was forced to face what is a lot of parents biggest fears… and in doing so it turned into her greatest teacher. Today we will learn:Why the unknown is often scarier than the worst case scenario How fear physically manifests and what to do about it  How to shift your perspective and  collect evidence for your own fearlessness  Sign up for the Morning Mind Love at mindlove.com!Learn more about your ad choices.

Have you ever had a goal that you worked really really hard for, for months maybe even years, and then when you accomplished it, it just didn’t feel as great as you thought it would? Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/094 So if our goals aren’t always fulfilling, is there really any point in having goals if they aren’t gong to fulfill us anyway? YES… yes you should have goals… but there are important ways we should choose and strive for these goals if we want them to feel meaningful to us. Today we’re talking to Kelsey Ramsden is my friend and also an award-winning business mogul and entrepreneur. She’s ranked amongst the top women entrepreneurs in the world. After achieving every milestone she set out for, scaling multiple companies to millions of dollars - she still didn’t feel complete. So she studied why.Most of the remarkable things in our lives are by way of chance, however we often try to engineer everything remarkable… “If I do this… then that…”The key is to put yourself in the way of chance. But how do we do that?Today we will learn: Why your big moment is often underwhelming.  How to define yourself outside your success.  How to put yourself in the way of chance to create magical synchronicities. --Sign Up for The Morning Mind Love for short daily reminders of how freaking powerful and magical you are, straight to your inbox!Learn more about your ad choices.

Your life and what you do with it, is directly impacted by how worthy you feel. If you don’t feel like you deserve something, chances are you won’t have it.Why? You won’t take action or you won’t create the energy needed to attract the outcome.How worthy you feel will affect your ability to see things, even challenges as things that happen for you instead of to you.So it’s really important we get a handle on this.But how? It’s not like we just chose to not feel worthy. Our self-worth is usually a reflection of a whole lot of past experiences, what other people have said to us, other people dripping their personal crap onto us, and evidence we’ve collected throughout our lives.Today we’re talking to Tracy Litt, a certified mindset coach and transformation therapist and author of the book Worthy Human. I loved this interview because she calls you on your bullshit. She’s fun and direct and cuts right to the heart of what’s real and true.Today we will learn:How to own your shit through a total subconscious auditHow to handle it when you’re affected bu other people’s shitHow to change your experience by tuning into higher parts of yourself and othersSupport Mind Love's Sponsors: ThirdLove.com/MINDLOVE for 15% off your first purchaseFIGS Scrubs ← Use code MINDLOVE for 15% off your first purchaseTalkspace ← Use code MINDLOVE for $65 off your first monthShow Notes: https://mindlove.com/089Sign Up for The Morning Mind Love for short daily reminders of how freaking powerful and magical you are, straight to your inbox!Learn more about your ad choices.

Right now in the world, the sacred feminine is rising. We see it in the MeToo movement, we see it with the rise of female-founded companies and women CEOs, but we also see it in the shift of masculinity.We live in a patriarchal world. This doesn’t mean that men are ruling the world, it means that the dominating energy has been of the masculine.Both men, women and non-binary have both masculine and feminine energy. Having too much of one or the other causes and imbalance.Most of modern history has suppressed the sacred feminine, from as far back as burning witches at the stake, to limiting women’s rights.But now, the feminine is finally claiming her place. And with that comes a lot of learning to fully harness our feminine power.The feminine is all about receiving – it’s the root of our intuition. So many of the things women have been convinces are weaknesses or embarrassments are actually our power… from our big emotions, to our menstrual cycles.As the sacred feminine takes its place at the table, we need sisterhood and connection more than ever.Today’s episode is full of juicy women’s history, how to work with our goddess energy, and unleashing the wise, wild women within ourselves.Our guest is Rebecca Campbell, devotional artist and author of popular books such as Light is the New Black and Rise Sister Rise. I’ve been a fan of hers for awhile so I’m really excited to spend this time with her today.Today we will learn:How to recognize the ways we have been keeping ourselves containedHow to use your menstrual cycle to align your work flowHow we can best show up for the balance of the masculine and feminineSign up for The Morning Mind Love here!Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/088Learn more about your ad choices.

We live in time of entrepreneurship. Even people with full time jobs are likely to have a side hustle. Today, anyone can start a business if they have the right mindset.It’s easy to look at influencers and entrepreneurs and assume they got lucky, but the truth is, it takes a lot of work and a lot of passion.So today we’re going to go deep into the mindset of a highly successful entrepreneur. Our guest is my friend and mentor Pat Flynn – a beloved thought leader in the areas of online entrepreneurship, digital marketing, and lifestyle businesses. He is an entrepreneur, blogger and podcaster best known for his blog and podcast Smart Passive Income, where he conducts income experiments and shares the results.Pat’s podcast was the very first podcast I got hooked on. What drew me to him was how authentic and genuine he was when he was sharing knowledge. In fact, he was the person who taught me the ins-and-outs of podcasting AND he was one of the people who helped me gain more clarity around my purpose.When I think of an entrepreneur, Pat is one of the first people who comes to mind because of how many things he’s got his hands in… from Kickstarter to podcasts to blogs to YouTube… he even started a business on a topic he knew nothing about – food trucks – just to show with the right technique and most importantly, the right MINDSET, anyone can be successful while building a life they truly love.Today we will learn:How to decide your next big moveHow to find people who align with your missionHow work life balance is less about balance and more about finding your centerSupport Mind Love's Sponsors: Talkspace ← Use code MINDLOVE for $65 off your first monthCitizenryPodcast.com ← Use code MINDLOVE for $50 off your purchase of $200+FunctionOfBeauty.com/MINDLOVE  ← Get 20% off your first order Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/087Learn more about your ad choices.

I love, love, LOVE your content. I always wonder what you're going to come up with next, and you never disappoint! This came in perfect time as I'm about to start nursing school and needed a little push to deactivate some social media! I also have an add-on downloaded to my laptop that only allows for one tab open at a time. I can get up to 10 in one sitting if I'm not careful. 😂 Thanks for your hard work and excellent content. You're doing an amazing job.❤

I have a question about this one. How can you tell apart intuition from something that you really want. For example, I was attempting to read my intuition while listening to the podcast and what I pictured was something that I’ve been already wanting and talking about so how do I know it’s my intuition and not just that I’ve been thinking about that for the past two days? Or do the things you really want and your intuition coincide? 🤔

Love this podcast. Thank you. It always gives me insight and pause as to how I interact with my love one. However this guest sounded just very angry, and so certain about things. So quick to pigeonhole and to group disorders. She cannot possibly know if a toxic parent will be a toxic grandparent. And her arrogance of book sales; I can't help but wonder how many people have thought that she is toxic.

thank you so very much for the insight and love you send out into the world through your poscast! I am a new listener and resonate deeply with all of your episodes. I was born with toxic parents and now at 35 have finally made the choice to save myself and end tbe cycle of being in a 13yr toxic relationship. the last 7months of freedom haven't been easy but the saddness of it ending is much easier to handle then the pain of "being in it". I am proud of my progress and after listening to this episode am reassured that not only is true happiness possible but that I was not crazy, and that his behavior was disrespectful. and most importantly gained the strength to know that to finally let go of that rope is not selfish and I don't need to explain myself or give him one last good bye. THANK YOU
