Episode 6: NAVIGATING negativity & controlling what you CAN

In this episode:

  • You can only control yourself
  • Handling negativity from people around you
  • Some people won’t support you & that’s ok
  • Giving others the benefit of the doubt
  • Not having it all figured out
  • Creating space when needed

On today’s episode, we are getting REAL & chatting about handling friends or family who just might not get it or support you in a way that you wish they did. Everyone struggles with navigating relationships & dealing with what other people think. The people who THINK differently might act like what you are doing is “WRONG,” or question your motives. What I think is the absolute WORST? Is that because of their questions or comments you actually QUESTION your own MOTIVES & CHOOSE TO THROW THE TOWEL in on YOUR DREAMS because someone ELSE is CHIRPING IN YOUR EAR. & to be honest, that’s devastating to me. So, here are 3 things I do to help NAVIGATE it:

#1: CHECK IN IF YOU are CONTROLLING THE CONTROLLABLES

#2: ARE YOU WILLING TO ENTERTAIN the idea that it’s NOT ABOUT YOU?

#3: BLESS & RELEASE OR create some SPACE.

“Life is short and often throws curveballs. So, I’m gonna make the hell out of everything I’ve got, every single day, and I hope you do too.”

Quotes:

“If you are BREATHING, or doing anything different from what other people around you are doing, you are going to experience resistance from time to time.”

“Are you owning the situation & realizing that the only part that you can control, ALWAYS no matter what, is yourself.”

“Every time I wanna point the finger at someone else, I turn that finger around, I point it back at myself & I say what can I control? What can I own in this?”

“Happiness is a real compass. So if it feels good to you & something in your gut is telling you to do this? You’ve gotta do this, you’ve gotta listen to yourself.”

“Girl, don’t you DARE hold back on your potential because of someone else’s opinion of you.”

“The people that we surround ourselves with, the people whose ideas we infuse into our brains, whose comments we hear on a regular basis, that’s part of who we become. So choose well.”
