Coaching Call #084 – 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.
