We all want to feel valued and significant, but what about when it challenges our core beliefs, character or boundaries? Being rooted and grounded in your self-worth can help you stand strong when popular opinion wants to sway you and offer fleeting significance. In this week’s podcast Bethany shares the importance of staying aligned with your trueness and having the courage to stand alone.
J.K. Rowling states, "It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not lived at all. In which case, you've failed by default." Failing can be scary, risky, and disappointing, but it is also the very thing that leads to growth, innovation, creativity, and breakthrough. In this week's podcast, Bethany talks about the power of creating environments where your teams can fail fearlessly; resulting in exponential success.
Have you ever found yourself hustling to prove your worth? Trying to please people at work, church, school, and basically everywhere you go? When we don't know our value and self-worth, we are willing to sacrifice who we are for the sake of belonging. Our hustling eventually catches up and only sets us up for burnout, resentment, anger, and exhaustion. Our value and self-worth can only be defined by how we truly see ourselves. Listen as Bethany shares how the hustle began for her and how we can begin to discover our value.
Perfectionism is the underlying belief that my actions are tied to my worthiness as a human being. If I work really hard at being perfect, no one will see how broken I am and the deep struggle to be valued. We beat ourselves up with negative self-talk, when really it's time to let go of our unrealistic goals, show up, and be seen. Letting going of perfectionism frees us to be real, grow in excellence, and own our mistakes. We will thrive in life as we bring our best us to the table!
