Thanks to Iskra, my very first paid subscription podcast supporter! I appreciate you and am so happy you’re here.

This week we explore why we do and don’t do things. Do we move toward accomplishment, or away from punishment, disappointment or discomfort?

How can we approach our ambitions in a way that honors these two warring desires within us?

We explore the ways our beliefs about the world can get in the way of moving toward our dreams, and create more space for us to receive good things in the world.

When we notice the moment that we put on the brakes and limit how much we are willing to commit to an outcome, or how hard we want to push for that outcome, it illuminates where our most limiting beliefs are and gives us the opportunity to deconstruct them.

Humans tend to approach the same point of failure repeatedly, become confused as to why things aren’t working, and find themselves too tired to figure it out. It leads to us returning to the same projects and big ambitions using the same actions and finding ourselves stuck at the same place on repeat, which leads to despair and frustration.

Surrounding ourselves with people who have achieved or are achieving the same goals as us is so helpful in overcoming our confusion, fears, and setbacks.

We can also tap into the innate wisdom of our body to learn why we stop ourselves from moving forward, and discover the best times for us to push ahead.
