22. Practical Steps to Stop Self-Sabotage, Shift Your Mindset, & Start Showing Up for Yourself | Brianna Wiest

Brave Enough to Be

In today’s episode, I’m joined by author and poet, Brianna Wiest. Brianna has built a worldwide readership through thousands of published articles and tens of millions of views. She is a senior contributor at Forbes, a top contributor at Medium, and writes and consults for national publications.  Brianna is also the author of five books — and her latest, The Mountain Is You: Transforming Self-Sabotage Into Self-Mastery is being published in June 2020! Her dream is to use the power of words to help people awaken to their fullest potential, build emotional intelligence and fulfill their life purpose Brianna is one of my favorite writers; someone whose every word I want to share on an Instagram Story and just say: “YES, THIS.” I believe her words resonate not just because she braids them together so well, but because she is so good at exploring and explaining the human condition.  In today’s conversation, we talked about how you can begin to change the way you think, what she’s learned from her most popular pieces, the piece of advice that’s most contributed to her prolific writing career, and why it’s so important to let go of attachment to the outcome. We also talk about: What self-sabotage is, how to identify it, some of the main reasons we self-sabotage, and the practical steps she took to begin shifting her behaviors in her own life The piece of advice that’s most contributed to her prolific writing career and the unconventional way she finds flow while writing Why self-hate is a learned thing (and how to unlearn it) The questions to ask yourself whenever you keep running into a block in your life . . . and so much more! Brianna was one of the first names on my “Dream Guest” list when I was first thinking about this podcast, and I’m so grateful that we got to share this conversation.  I’ve admired her as a writer for so long, and after this conversation, I like her even more as a person.  — Follow Brianna: Website Medium Instagram Other Notable Links: Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed Resilience by Eric Grietens CREDITS Editing & Sound Engineering: Jordan Johansen Music: “Kenton” by Dr Crosby (Licensed via Marmoset)

And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do -- and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem."“Civilisation began the first time a person cast an angry word instead of a rock.”"we should do one thing a day that scares us.""No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.""Women are like teabags. You don't know how strong they are until you put them in hot water. (don’t go there!)""Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people."
