2 Ways To Take Your Power Back When You Feel Insecure

How do you find your power when life knocks you down?

What do you do when you are in the middle of an emotional tsunami?

How do you respond when the universe is testing you?

This is the ultimate episode about resilience, confidence, and taking your power back.

Yes, you can take control with simple tools whenever you feel that insecurity spiral kick in. You can pick yourself up, shake off the sh*t, and you can make it a win for you.

In this episode, I take you into my life as my 22-year-old daughter gets news that sent her spiraling: her ex was now interested in one of her friends.

This episode unfolds live, over the phone, in real-time, and it is about way more than dealing with heartbreak.

This is for everyone, including you.

This is about how you can make those moments of insecurity a win. It’s about finding your confidence when self-doubt comes in. It’s about getting your power back.

And this is also about how you can make better decisions. How to align your actions and reactions with what you want out of life, rather than letting your emotions hijack you.

This is powerful stuff. During this deeply relatable conversation, you’ll laugh, nod along, and probably think of a dozen friends who need to hear this too. My daughter and I unpack the situation live, and you’ll hear Kendall process her feelings, rise above the noise, tap into her power, and start coaching herself forward from a place of confidence and clarity.

Honestly, as her mother, I’m incredibly proud of what she shares in this episode.

I want you to listen because I want you to feel empowered too.

In one hour, you will learn how to turn hurt feelings into a WIN for you. You’ll hear the best advice I’ve ever received when life knocked me down, and how you can use it to make your life and your attitude 10X better.

You’ll understand how to break old patterns of self-sabotage and kick them to the curb for good.

Holy sh*t…I almost forgot! There is swearing in this episode! If you have any kids around, put those headphones on!

And seriously: for anyone in your life struggling with insecurity, do them a favor and remind them of who they are. Send them this episode so they can take their power back.
