So, you’re stuck. Not
moving. Not taking much action.
You know all the things you should be doing to get where you wanna go, yet you don’t actually do it.
Or maybe you have no idea what you want to do and that is leaving you feeling stuck as fuck. (Side note: I feel like there should be a glue or tape company called “Stuck as Fuck”)
And, it’s likely if you’re feeling stuck, there are a shit-ton of other things you may be feeling too. Maybe you feel some fear about starting a new career path. Maybe you feel overwhelmed from your current roles as partner, parent, employee, friend, etc. Maybe you feel anxious about getting back in the dating scene. And, then your behaviors follow suit. You’re scared to switch careers, so you procrastinate. You’re overwhelmed in your current roles, but you still people-please, adding to your overwhelm. You’re anxious about dating, so you obsess over being perfect before posting your online profile. Stuck af, rinse, repeat.
Gah! So, what is one to do? This week on the show, I dial up my pal Britt Frank, a psychotherapist and trauma specialist who recently penned an amazing book entitled, The Science of Stuck. Add to cart, amiright!? In this uber-packed interview we discuss all the “parts” that make up our personality (aka when your inner child throws a tantrum), how anxiety is not something that “attacks” you but is actually a message about your safety, and Britt’s fav 5-minute challenge to help you bust through your stuckness. Get ready to wear a hole in this episode, because it’s a good one.
This pod explores:
It’s time to stop talking constant shit to yourself. It’s time to stop caring so much about what everyone else thinks of you. It’s time to let go of that death grip on perfectionism, self-doubt, and people-pleasing. After all, how has all that shit been working? That’s what I thought.
Let’s kick that shit to the curb, shall we? I’m about to open the doors for an exclusive, group-coaching immersion that will teach you the skills to access some serious “enoughness,” start believing in yourself, and speak up for yourself like a bold, boundaried badass.
