Larissa Halls from Everyday Inspiration and I catch up for our monthly wholehearted conversation where we focus in on juicy topics in the areas of Mindset, Motivation, Psychology and more….
This month we dig down into the concepts of self-support and self-advocacy as essential tools and philosophies for your Next Chapter Journey.
Key points from this episode
- Self-advocacy is essential for creating a platform for growth
- Avoid the “second arrow” – you can experience pain, disappointment, failure but it is the way you then respond to the experience that’s vital. Do you berate and belittle yourself? Do you speak harshly to yourself? That’s the “second arrow” and you avoid this,often deeper wound, if you practice acceptance and self-support.
- Create visual cues and reminders for yourself
- Practices like EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Affirmations can move you from disempowerment to empowerment
- Be realistic in your goals to build confidence and efficacy
- If you’re not enjoying the results you are producing try asking better questions of yourself.
- Say it, see it, feel it, do it!

I love the work of Debbie Ford and her “10 questions” have been inspirational to me in sifting through feelings and options in my own Next Chapter.
I thoroughly recommend her book and you can download a PDF of the questions below.
New York Times number-one bestselling author Debbie Ford presents revolutionary questions that, when answered with complete honesty, change the way we see ourselves and make decisions – ultimately moving us toward the life we desire.
The realities of the life we live today are a result of the choices we made yesterday, three months ago and three years ago. But we don′t wind up $50,000 dollars in debt because of one extravagant purchase. Nor do we put on 30 unwanted pounds as a result of a couple of decadent meals. And our relationships certainly don′t fall apart overnight because of one decision.
We are where we are because of repeated unconscious choices made day after day. If we want to understand why and how we created our present day reality, all we need to do is look at the choices we made in the past. Ford cuts right through our denial with the 10 questions that immediately reveal the true motivations behind our thoughts and actions. But more than that, by rigorously and honestly asking and answering these 10 vital questions, we regain control and have the power necessary to create the life we always wanted.
