Coaching Call #084 is out! The topic of this week’s call is: She’s Tired of Feeling Unworthy and Needing Other People’s Approval.
It’s about time I did a call on self-worth! This client had a very common issue: she was constantly comparing herself to others and coming up short, and was feeling great shame about not being good enough. We worked through a variety of issues, both specific and quite general, and I offered several simple techniques to shore up her confidence and worthiness.
Believe it or not, feeling better about yourself isn’t really that complicated. With a few shifts in mindset and a bit of practice, you can be walking down the street in confidence (and a twinkle in your eye) in no time.
I’m taking the month of January off to travel to Peru and go do my own inner work (getting an energy upgrade. And possibly an oil change). In the meantime, I’ve decided to give you a little treat and answer your LOA questions on Video for a change! How freaking exciting is that? Enormously. The answer is: enormously exciting. Someone out there is shitting kittens right now. You’re welcome.
Awesome Alan asks: “My name is Alan and I have a life altering question for you. I am a 45 year old man who’s always had a dream about playing professional golf. The reason that I haven’t made it on tour in the last 20 to 25 years is a lot of reasons (mainly mental). I could give you a long story about all the whys’ and wherefores’, but that is the past.
The reason that I’m writing you is that I haven’t given up my dream of playing. If I do, I will always regret it. I might just have one more shot and I really want it.
However, I’m stuck in a dead end job which I must have to pay my bills. I’ve tried to consciously come up with a way to practice and play while working and pay my bills. As you can probably guess, I can’t come up with an answer.
From what I’ve been reading on your website and blogs, should I turn over the life altering question to my subconscious mind through visualization…? If so, what and how should I visualize? And if there are more ideas you have, I would love your feedback.
Alan (future winner on the PGA tour)
P.S. I love your picture on the top of your website… you are HOT!!!!!”
