The power of surrender and acceptance (and what they're not)

In episode 65 Lisa shares what happens when you surrender and accept the things you can't change and what is possible from this powerful perspective.  In life, things will happen that you can't control,  don't like and wish could be different however when you learn to use the tools of acceptance and surrender you'll find a peace you never knew existed.  As always, you get to choose the perspective that serves you living your best life and if you're choosing to live pushing back against your reality you will only create more resistance and more unease.  As the saying goes... what you resist persists.    You don't have to like your current set of circumstances to accept them but what is possible if you allowed yourself to surrender and stop fighting them?   To apply to coach with Lisa www.lisacarpenter.ca/wwm

Episode 4: Let's talk about your relationship with money

Join me on my first carcast after being inspired during my regular Sunday grocery shop.  I just couldn't hold myself back from sharing this interaction and my take aways from it. A complete stranger inspired me to talk about money. How we think about it. What we believe about it. Have you ever explored your stories about money? Have you considered how much those stories are impacting you on a daily basis? Your relationship with money is often mirrored in your relationship with food OR is the same journey as someone who struggles with their weight.  Diets and debt are both grounded in lack. Money and food are ENERGY.   How you think and feel about them will determine your level of wealth and health. YOU must become 100% responsible for your relationship with your money.  I'd love to hear your insights from this episode so slide into my DM's over on IG https://www.instagram.com/lisacarpenterinc/ Interested in unpacking your money stories?  Apply to work with me at www.lisacarpenter.ca

The power of discomfort in transformation

In Episode 47 Lisa dives into the power of being comfortable with discomfort.  It's easy to read books and take courses hoping for transformation but when we avoid being uncomfortable not much changes.  When you can learn to lean into behaving differently and be ok with being uncomfortable that's when lasting transformation begins.

Episode 5: Behind the scenes emotions of the FFL podcast launch

Hey hey listeners! Yesterday I posted the following over on my social media channels and today I'm sharing how it made me feel and how I'm navigating all of the emotion of putting myself out into the world in this way.  I'm launching my new podcast in a few days and let me just say, it's far from perfect. There's no fancy intro and outro. There's no cool voice over. I don't have show notes. One episode I recorded in my car. This is the foundation of Full Frontal Living™ I don't wait for perfect. I challenge myself to sit in the discomfort of launching something that isn't more polished. I challenge myself to speak when the message wants to come through me and not when I'm sitting perfectly poised in front of my fancy mic. I challenge myself to just speak what's on my mind WITHOUT a script, with some "uhms" mixed in and unedited. For far too many years I waited... and waited... and waited... Waited until the graphics were perfect. Waited until the branding was perfect. Waited until I had the perfect thing to say. Waited for the perfect sales page. Waited for the right time. Do you know what happened? Nothing. I just wasted time and robbed the people who needed to hear my message from finding me. Not anymore. I commit to showing up REGARDLESS of the circumstances. I commit to being there for my audience. I commit to being in integrity with how I live and how I coach. I commit to transparency. I commit to just being me (which is far from perfect). I commit to allowing things to be DONE and figuring out the rest later. Perfection is just a smoke screen we throw up to hide our insecurities and fears. It has NOTHING to do with excellence. My people need me to show up raw because they're craving someone to give them permission to do the same. They're craving freedom from their fears, doubts and judgments. I am launching this for all the high achievers who are being so damn hard on themselves. Successful women who are looking for freedom from doing all the things, freedom from overwhelm, and freedom from their anxiety, doubts and exhaustion. I'm here to preach what physical and emotional wellbeing looks like when you practise it from the inside out. This podcast is for those of us who LOVE what we do but who need to love ourselves more. You can create massive impact while having a healthy relationship with your body, your business and the people you love. We all deserve to have a voice and we all need other voices to guide us towards becoming the best versions of ourselves. I'm excited, nervous and humbled that I to some I will be that voice.

Episode 7 Why self care doesn't work {part 2} and how to embody a new perspective.

In todays episode Lisa dives deeper into what it means to matter in your own life.  She explores what it takes to truly care for you physical body and your emotional well-being.  It's not something you DO but who you're willing to become. I need to talk about the relationship you're having with your body.... This has been a foundational part of my work for years now because YOUR BODY is a direct reflection of how you feel about yourself. Treating your body like an afterthought means you're treating YOURSELF as an afterthought. It is the vehicle you get to DO life in. It lets you experience your 3D world. It is the vessel that allows you to live out your soul's purpose. It lets you see, hear, smell, taste and touch your physical world. It gives you LIFE. If you're feeding it crap If you're not giving it rest If you're not giving it movement If you're feeding it toxic thoughts If you're demanding it work to exhaustion If you're hating on how it looks You destroy it. It will support you until it no longer can. Think about it It's the ultimate co-dependent relationship... You treat your body like crap yet it CONTINUES to show up for you and give you LIFE. Would you stay in a relationship with a person who treated you the way you're treating your body? If you want to live your life with the highest level of performance then HONOUR your most valuable piece of equipment like a Mazarati and not a broken down Chevette. Successful people KNOW that they can only serve at their highest level by making their relationship with their physical body a number ONE priority. REST MOVE EAT TO NOURISH PLAY BE PRESENT TO ALL FIVE SENSES IN THE MOMENT When you fundamentally shift the energy in the "DOING" of these activities you take self-care to a higher level. They are not punishments to create an outcome. Treat your body with the REVERENCE it deserves and you'll get to enjoy life and make an impact on an entirely different level. We are cosmic beings having a human experience AND while you're here respect your physical ride. ~ Lisa Please be sure to check out the resources mentioned in this episode Run Like Clockwork Podcast  with Adrienne Dorison & Mike Michalowicz Share your take aways over on IG Applications to coach with me can be found at lisacarpenter.ca

Episode 31: How my client Elisa went from chaos to calm, changed her habits and reclaimed her physical and emotional health and well-being

In todays episode I'm highlighting one of my previous clients Elisa and her journey of transformation from can't' to CAN.  As a 44 year old type A, professional woman who is also juggling a family with special needs children Elisa lived her life working more, trying harder, reaching for perfection and in the process let herself, her health and her identity go.  She got lost in the chaos of her life and her physical and emotional health reflected her lack of attention to her own self care. In a cycle of burnout and living on coffee she decided things needed to change (and with the real threat of diabetes on the horizon).  She realized that she couldn't change her circumstances but she could change how she was showing up for herself regardless of the circumstances.  Elisa's story is COMMON and what she was able to accomplish is also available to you.   Weight Loss From Within™ is OPEN for registration and doors close July 25.   If you are one of the first 10 women to register you'll also receive a bonus 1:1 coaching session with Lisa.  Register for Weight Loss From Within HERE
