The Shift To Freedom
How To Acknowledge We've Been Riding the Bike On Our Own with Sophie Weill
Every time we are about to take a big step, and we question ourselves if we are on the right track or making the right choice, where does that voice come from? Is it fear of failure? Is it self-doubt, our gut waving at us, trying to stop us from making a mistake, or is it just us getting in our way?
In this episode, I'm joined by Sophie Weill to identify where this voice comes from, how to avoid falling into a plateau in our personal and professional growth, determine if we are making decisions out of fear or love, and identify self-doubt's red flags.
Together, we discuss the importance of recognizing the authority and autonomy over our life choices and the need to stop seeing failure as an end and understand it as part of every process. We also explore the concept of externalizing authority, building external and internal self-trust mechanisms, and developing the strength to be ready to face the risk and the consequences of our actions.
