How to Build Inner Strength

In this episode, I talk to you about how to build inner strength.  It doesn’t do us any good to just say “I want to be a stronger person.”  You need to have the tools to be able to build your inner strength and recognize when a situation is effecting your inner strength negatively.

Topics Discussed:

  • Sometimes we don’t realize that we’ve given someone the power and permission to make us feel a certain way.  This podcast will teach you how to combat this and provide you with tools and tips to need to change this reaction.
  • Tips for being more self-aware and learning to recognize when a negative feeling is being triggered by someone.
  • Learn how to break the habit of allowing others to make you feel inferior.
  • How to embrace change and fear.
  • Reframe how you view your failures; they teach you how to do it better next time.
  • Take time to sit with a pad of paper and a pencil and write down your priorities and values.  This will help you feel more confident in the life decisions you make.  Need help with this? Sign up for my free 30 day program.  Link is below.
