Episode 135: Put Yourself Out There, Or Else

When was the last time you did something that scared you? When was the last time you stretched yourself into discomfort so you could grow and flourish? I’m not saying you need to make yourself miserable, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: you can’t become the person you’re meant to be without leaning into your fears.

In this episode, Alison and I break down how you can use your fears, negative emotions –and maybe even hangovers– to guide you toward your own path. It’s time to show up. It’s time to do something that scares you. It’s time to stop always doing what feels good in the moment instead of doing the thing that will bring you real fulfillment. Because there are consequences to avoiding this growth, and they're worse than the temporary discomfort, friends.

What you’ll find in this episode:
