Today’s guest is about to blow you away with this topic.

I found Maxie because I was searching for books on Audible about feeling lost, or feeling stuck, or feeling imposter syndrome, because of something I was personally experiencing and questions that I get from so many of you.

Her book, "You’re Not Lost" is so impactful because we so often create these stories of why we can’t take action, & we get so caught up in our 5-20 year plans, forgetting that the little things we do along the way are going to be the things that get us where we want to be, and Maxie does an amazing job of breaking this down.

I can’t wait for you to hear from her & see what you think! Be sure to TAG us both in your IG stories if you vibe with it! 

“Figure out what energizes you. The things that bring you more joy, more energy, more excitement than not. It does not have to be an end-all-be-all career goal. And ask yourself what’s the absolute smallest thing I can do about this thing that lights me up, and then let it be small and just go do it.” -Maxie McCoy

Quotes:

“If you are feeling lost right now, its okay. Its OKAY… the feelings of being lost are actually a really powerful place of presence to be in.”

“If you’re doing something for the first time, which all of us at any height of success have done something for the first time, you don’t know what you’re doing.”

“What is today giving you that just rocks, and how can you love that?”

“If you don’t know where you’re going & you don’t know what to do next, just look at what you’ve done. And somewhere in that is the data of what the next step should be.”

“That’s the difference between successful people & non-successful people, are the ones that consistently show up and consistently do something that they haven’t done in the face of the unknown, versus someone who just talks about it & thinks about it.”
