Episode 6 - Playing Big with Tara Sophia Mohr

Read more

Tara Sophia Mohr is an expert on well-being and women's leadership. She has a book entitled, Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message and Tara has been featured on Maria Shiver, Huffington Post, and more. She talks to Charlie today about some of the problems women face in modern times, self-doubt, launching her book with a new born in tow, and resisting our true calling. 

Key takeaways:

4:22 – It's hard to be seen as the likeable and good girl when you're trying to challenge the status quo. 

9:55 – Play big. Identify what that means to you. Sometimes playing big doesn't have to be big at all. 

14:16 – We tend to resist our true calling because of fear. 

17:15 – Tara explains about two types of fear in this segment. 

22:10 – Women want to be both competent and likeable, but sometimes the two collide with each other and women dumb down their competence to seem more likeable. 

29:10 – Both Tara and her husband are in the same type of career field, but Tara thinks it is important to advance each of their careers individually and without using your partner as a crutch.
34:20 – Tara didn't anticipate the amount of opportunities that would open for her as a result of the book and it has been one of her challenges to manage. 

37:15 – It's so hard to focus on one thing when we get 20 new ideas a day. 

41:22 – The biggest takeaway? Self-doubt is a big problem for women. Tara says to work on taking action when you feel self-doubt.

Chantal Pierrat: Well, Tara, welcome, and thank you for being here today.

Tara Mohr: Thank you, thank you so much for having me. 

CP: I’m so excited to have you today—half an hour or 45 minutes all to myself. I think I discovered you about a year ago or a year and a half ago. I’ve been getting your blogs and I read your poetry. And the thing that struck me the most was here was a woman who was diving into business, clearly very, very articulate and wise in the business world, but who was overtly—and I’m putting some emphasis on that because it’s unusual—spiritual. And I’m just so excited because it’s such a rare combination, and I would love to dig in a little bit more about your background and how that came to be and how you came to combine these two worlds that seemingly are very separate. So maybe we could just jump in there.

TM: Yes. I’d love to begin there. That’s certainly been a big part of my journey. I was raised in a fairly unique way, hopefully a way that’s becoming less unique. My mom was very much a spiritual seeker, and had a huge passion for psychology.

So our house was full of books from all different religious traditions, from the mystical side of all different religious traditions, and she was always busy reading them. She was up at 5 a.m. writing about spiritual topics, really just for her own journey. She raised me, every morning, at the breakfast table, asking me what did I dream the night before, and having me diagram my dreams out, the Jungian interpretation, on a yellow pad while I was having my oatmeal or my Cheerios or whatever it was at the time.

And truly, I can remember incidents like being teased on the playground in kindergarten and coming home, getting into the car [when] my mom picked me up and saying, “Mom, so-and-so teased me, and I really hate him.” And she would always say one of two things in that scenario. She would say, “Well, what do you think is going on for that person at home that would make them tease another kid?” Or she would say, “How do you think God looks at that person?”

So this was the milieu I was raised in, and it was particularly remarkable because it wasn’t attached to any organized religion. I grew up with this access to inner life and to spiritual concepts that I think children are ready for and can understand, but we often underestimate how much and how early they can understand [them]. So I would say that was one track that I was on from very early in life.

And yet, at the same time, my parents were [a] middle class, professional, Jewish family who really valued education, and [they] were saying to me, “You’re bright and you have a lot of potential and we expect you to work hard in school and do well in school.” And school was a world that felt like the opposite of all that stuff I was just talking about. Because, of course, at school, nobody was asking what God thought about any of the other kids. [Laughs] Nobody was thinking about what dreams meant.

School felt very hierarchical. I was always aware [of], “Oh, you can get a good grade or a bad grade.” And yet, my mom was saying every child was divine and special. So those things were at odds. In school, we would learn about, “This war happened because this country disagreed with this guy,” and no one was looking at the inner side of anything.

So for much of [my] life, I would say these two different domains felt very distin...
