Happy summer! And if you are a USA peep, a day-early happy Independence Day 🙂
Independence, liberation, freedom….such fantabulous concepts, are they not? There have been so many important jubilant fist-in-the-air time periods in history when a freedom from power-over, tyranny, oppression, or cruelty has been won. Then there are the smaller freedoms, like when a teenager gets their driver’s license, or graduates from high school, leaving the family nest for new adventures (read: without parental dictatorship).
And then there are the less grandiose-seeming shifts that happen, allowing us freedom from inaccurate ideas in our mind – habits, beliefs, faulty “information” – that hold us back. While this latter type of freedom may not have the same news-worthy status as America sliding out from English rule, or as a young person flying out of the nest to go forge their independent life, it can create a massive positive ripple-effect in our life experience.
For example, let’s say Chelsea always struggles to make ends meet financially, working at her minimum wage job at Dunkin’ Donuts. She has this belief system, due to her high school grades, that she isn’t smart enough to have a more lucrative job. Because school focuses on test grades in subjects like math, science, and grammar, she never got connected with her way-above-average abilities in people skills, quick diagnostic thinking, computer proficiency, and empathy.
One day, one of her “regulars” is standing outside when she gets off her shift (yes, a little creepy, but stick with me here past the creep-factor). The regular, named Marge, is a manager at a large insurance company, and they are looking for a few top-notch customer service reps. Marge has always been impressed by how Chelsea works with customers, never gets flustered, helps her service team with cash register issues, and seems to be the “good vibe” glue that creates such great customer service in the store. Chelsea stands out and Marge wants her on her team at the insurance company, which will pay three times what Chelsea makes now, and includes benefits. In that moment, Chelsea is freed from her crappy old belief system about her worth on the job market and over time, this new self-confidence ripples out into her entire life experience. Freedom, baby.
Where might your old habits, belief systems, or “information” be holding you back from freedom? If it’s in the area of BodyMindSpirit health, I can help! Here are quotes from two coaching calls I had this morning:
“You’ve helped me re-structure how I think about food choices and preparation. I’ve never felt better, and I’ll carry this on for life!” (Let freedom ring!)
“I’ve struggled with weight and emotional eating for so many decades. Your work with belief systems is amazing. I’ve lost 30 pounds, but more importantly, the voice in my mind has made a big shift toward kindness, and I feel much less anxious.” (Let freedom ring, baby!)
I’ve had three spots open up in my six-month Transformation Coaching Program. If you’re ready for some new freedoms (health, energy, peace of mind, etc.) and some real traction on your health, grab one of these openings and let’s get started. And, I always have plenty of spots available in my “Savvy about Supplements” Coaching – a 90-minute coaching call that will free you from wasting money on ineffective supplements! Focus your nutrient intake where it matters based on your health history and status, and support your body effectively. Give me a shout and I’ll fill you in on the details!
