Worth in Progress

Worth in Progress explores the real and raw process of personal development. Because, it is never as easy as reading a book or listening to motivational speakers, I share the real life examples and stories of our triggered reactions and help guide you through understanding the reason behind these behaviors. We might as well laugh at ourselves a little while we heal that inner child and find our self-worth! www.MariaGrandeLLC.com

EP 19: You Can't FIX People

In this episode we talk about the natural tendency to want to help people when they are struggling but, when we are trying to save people, it can become an issue. The Savior complex is the need to rescue and this episode addresses where this need comes from. We also talk about codependency and I give you signs to recognize the traits. This also relates to our people pleasing episode so I address an email I received at the end of the discussion.

EP 7: Finding Your Voice. Being Confident in Communication

In this episode we discuss what it means to find your voice and the 4 things to identify in the process. Not saying what you need to say can be harmful in many ways and we talk about the conditioned patterns that keep us from communicating effectively. Learning to say no instead of being a people pleaser is breaking the pattern but how do we get there? Inner child healing is one of the ways I learned to develop my voice. It helped me identify my fear behind my behavior. Also, we discuss using profanity as a way to express your feelings. Is the taboo language always wrong?

It is hard to juggle work, kids, marriage and limiting beliefs at the same time. This could also be an issue of self-worth so we need to dive deep into self awareness.

EP 12: Faith Over Fear

Right now, the world is in crisis and society taught us that worrying will somehow help. Of course I am not saying that there is nothing to feel anxious about. I am simply saying that constant fear and worrying serves no purpose at all. Self-awareness will help you pull yourself out of the fear state and refocus. This will allow you to keep your power and be much more effective. We end this episode with a breathing technique you can try in order to recenter yourself.
