COURAGE + CONFIDENCE

Nov 24, 2020

When was the last time you had courage?

I was recently asked this question and to be honest it was so hard for me to think of something because in my opinion I’m courageous everyday! It’s just who I am as an individual. The shit I’ve gone through has forced me to PUSH through life on a daily basis so when I’m faced with adversity I do see it as being courageous. 

I’m not aware of it and I think most of the time, neither are you. We don’t think about courage in the moment because really we’re just taking action for something that we have to do. But courage comes in so many different ways. 

During this week’s PUSH, Eddie and I shared what it means to be courageous and how this newly discovered courage can lead to more confidence. 

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed…

  • How often do your exercise courage in your life (13:38)
  • How to talk yourself into more courage (17:29)
  • Gaining courage by focusing...

Self Sabotage! Why We Do It!

Nov 17, 2020

 

“We sabotage the great things in our lives because deep down we don’t feel worthy of having great things”- Taressa Riazzi

We’re all victims of self sabotage, whether you believe it or not. In fact, at most times, our greatest self sabotage is when we are closest to reaching new opportunities and blessings. 

It holds us back from pushing us towards our goals and trying to level up in life. We become our own worst enemies by creating fake scenarios and adopting toxic behaviors that halt our progress. 

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed… 

  • Are you your own worst enemy? (11:19)
  • Some classic symptoms of self-sabotage (15:02)
  • How avoidance is a form of self-sabotage (18:14)
  • Why people unknowingly choose to self-sabotage (23:01)
  • Low self-esteem and lack of confidence will lead to self-sabotage (25:33)
  • Negative thought pattern and negative beliefs are holding you back (27:20)

10 Things Most People Learn Too Late In Life!

Nov 10, 2020

Do you ever wish we were given a handbook on HOW to live life??? I definitely do! 

Unfortunately, life isn’t supposed to be that easy. In fact, life is more like playing a game and it’s our job to figure out what “game” we’re trying to play in whatever season we’re in. 

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed… 

  • You gotta use it or lose it (09:10)

The SH*T you can’t say!

Nov 03, 2020

It’s ELECTION DAY! And we decided enough is enough...

Why is it that as people we’re so filtered all the damn time! 

We’re so worried that we’re gonna piss someone off because of our own opinions. We avoid certain topics because it’s gotten to a point where relationships fall apart, family members don’t speak, and division becomes more and more of a “normalcy”. 

So today Eddie and I decided, to F* the haters and just say the sh*t you aren’t supposed to say! 

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed…

  • Why as a society we have become so politically polarized (12:31)
  • Cognitive dissonance and doubling down on our political choices (15:13)

Fully Exposed!

Oct 28, 2020

Okay, I know what you’re thinking… 

WHAT THE HELL is this episode about?

I know it sounds sexual but trust me it’s 100% NOT! 

If you’ve been following me and social media then you know that we recently started doing MAJOR  renovations on our house that we’ve saved and prayed for 15 years! What a blessing right!

You can read more about my post HERE!

Through this home renovation, I was inspired for the title of this week’s episode and it made me realize that sometimes in order to grow you have to strip down everything you know to the foundation and be FULLY EXPOSED. 

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed…

  • Stay in faith and stay in action even when you feel discouraged and helpless (08:01)
  • Are you triggered when you see other people winning (09:50)
  • How being fully exposed can lead to tremendous growth (11:15)
  • You have to be completely vulnerable to grow (18:24)
  • Comfort kills you (22:13)

Why NOW is the PERFECT time to start!

Oct 13, 2020

Fun Fact: Back in 2009, I started my business in the middle of a recession. Fast forward 11 and ½ years later and I’m officially closing that chapter and moving forward with coaching and consulting fellow entrepreneurs to create their dream businesses and I’m so READY and freaking excited to get GOING!

KNOWING YOUR WORTH & HOW TO NEGOTIATE YOUR VALUE!

Sep 29, 2020

You are WORTH so much more SIS!! 

 

Since being a coach, being a mother of three daughters, and employing tons of young females during my time as a business owner I’ve seen so many women struggle with knowing their worth and being able to articulate it to others.
