    #127: CONFIDENCE OR FEAR (SWITCH TO SAFER PART TWO)

    in Self Help

    CONFIDENCE OR FEAR?
    (SWITCH TO SAFER, PART TWO)
    EPISODE #127
     

    In this week’s podcast show we are going to be talking about:

    The balance between making confident choices and fearful ones
    How to decide what things really matter to you that you should take action on
    An invitation I have for you to become an activist

     

    THANK YOU:

    Aimee 1 of 2

     

     

     

    CONFIDENT CHOICES VERSUS FEARFUL ONES: / MAKING DECISIONS BECAUSE YOU WANT TO VERSUS BECAUSE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU SHOULD:

     

    Motivation and intention matters.

    You must dig deep into your heart to really find out the why behind what you do and behind why you do what you want to do.

    Intention sometimes isn't obvious to us, but whenever we are able to identify that our intentions / motivations are fear-based, we are automatically set up for failure.  Fear, even in small amounts, always brings with it its friends: self-doubt, uncertainty, hesitation and anxiety. Together, these weigh heavily on our hearts and our ability to really take action in life.

     

     

     

     

    HOW TO DECIDE WHAT REALLY MATTERS TO YOU:

     

    This new wellness consciousness was overwhelming for me at first; I wasn’t sure where to start and where to stop, at what point the small changes I made were making a difference and at what point I needed to do more. And then I remembered the compound effect – which is much of the essence of what I teach in everything I do – that every little thing we do does matter and that in culmination, over time, they make large differences.

     

    Here are the questions I asked myself when trying to figure out what really mattered to me when it came to the products I was putting on and around my body:

     

    What would I do to protect myself from something that knowingly contributes to cancer, to hormone disruption, to reproductive complications, to weight gain

    #003: CONFIDENCE IN THE MOM BOD.

    in Self Help

     CONFIDENCE IN THE MOM BOD
    EPISODE #003
     
    Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn’t know you had … and dealing with fears you didn’t know existed.
    –Linda Wooten
     

     

     

     

     

    LET’S GET INTO THE CONFIDENT CONTENT:

    I’m going to put my personal trainer hat on today – and, since we’re just getting to know one another, I owe it to tell you about my experience in the fitness industry:

     

    I specialize in working with body image issues, eating disorders or significant amounts of weight loss needs (50lbs or more)…. essentially my sweet spots are with the folks who need to just lose “those last 5 pounds” and those who need to lose a lot more than five pounds.

     

    I’m an athlete for life – marathoner, Ironman athlete, obstacle race competitor, snowboarder, surfer, cyclist….I love being active. I have competed internationally in my sports of choice and am grateful to say that the sport of swimming paid my way through college. I have been active in the Fitness Industry as my field of profession for almost ten years now.

     

     

    SOME THOUGHTS ON THE MOM-BOD:

     

    You’ve heard about the Dad Bod – let’s celebrate the Mom Bod today. The Mom Bod is a beautiful thing…and it’s time to stop talking about it like it’s not.
    Stop with the excuses – stop blaming your body on your baby, take ownership of your body for where it is right now – 5 pounds overweight or 50 pounds overweight and stop saying that you’re “too busy” to take care of yourself.
    Celebrate your body for the battle scars you incurred from carrying your child and giving birth; celebrate and accept it as it is today.
    Get serious – have a system and a plan – my plan is 6x/week, social time while exercising, morning workouts, pre-planned meals, one big grocery shopping trip per week, one big cook-up and tracking.
    Plan your fitness a week at a time, but have flexibility in your pla

    #001: WHY CONFIDENCE MATTERS FOR MOMS

    in Self Help

    WHY CONFIDENCE MATTERS FOR MOMS
    EPISODE #001
     
    “Babies are bits of star-dust blown from the hand of God. Lucky the woman who knows the pangs of birth for she has held a star.”
    ~ Larry Barretto
     

    WELCOME TO THE SHOW!

     

     

     

     

    WHY CONFIDENCE MATTERS FOR MOMS:

     

    I was worried about being a good mom, until I decided to take action on my fears. I decided to cling to confidence, which I know is a choice and it is a mindset that is engaged in active living. As I waited the arrival of my little girl, I set my intentions on a few things:

     

    I would trust in God’s plan.

     

    My fears about not being a good enough mom, or the right mom disappear when I remember that God placed me with my baby for a reason. Of all of the millions of women in this world, God chose me to be Ellie’s mom. That gives me confidence. God knows more than me about why I am a good match for her, and I trust Him.

     

    I would pray for my child and write down my prayers.

     

    Writing down my prayers is something I have always loved doing, but now as mom I love it even more because it frees my heart to literally be able to see that I have given it – I have given my child – over to God. It gives me confidence that I am not in control.

     

    I would invest in myself because I know that I can’t give what I don’t have.

     

    I want to instill confidence and speak nothing but words of life to Ellie, but in order to do that, I must make sure that I have that to give out in the first place. I know too many moms who stop being themselves and stop investing in themselves completely when they become moms – all in an effort to love their children well – but ultimately jeopardizing the amount of love they can really give.

     

    I would prioritize my husband and my relationship – and we would not lose our identities, our relationship and ourselves by being pa

    Winning in the Game of Life: Choosing Confidence over Fear

    in Self Help

    April 2, 2014 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio


    THEME: Winning in the Game of Life: Choosing Confidence over Fear


    INTERVIEW GUEST: Dr. Susan R. Cushing


    Dr. Susan R. Cushing is a graduate of the Boston College and Tufts University Dental School, a Fellow in the International College of Dentists and a Master in the Academy of General Dentistry. Susan practices all phases of dentistry with an emphasis on Cosmetic Dentistry and treating fearful and phobic dental patients. She is also a Clinical Hypnotherapist and a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, where she helps others re-program their own thoughts, actions and behaviors, in order to enhance the quality and effectiveness of their lives. Dr. Cushing is also the author of a new book, titled, “Fat No More! The Book of Hope for Losing Weight."


    This Week’s Message: Fear can be the greatest motivator, but it is also the number one cause of stress, which leads to effort, struggle, suffering, accidents, pain and disease.Confidence resides in the absence of fear and comes from knowing that all is well regardless of appearances. Whether you experience fear or confidence has nothing to do with the circumstances of your life or your external environment. Rather, it has everything to do with your inner perceptions – the meanings you take on about your situation. In every situation you encounter, you always have a choice to perceive things through the eyes of fear or confidence.  How will you approach your next challenge in life...with fear or confidence?

    About Lisa Condie:


    Lisa Condie is a featured contributor to both the Huffington Post and TUT.com.  In 2014, she was named one of Huffington Post's '50 Over 50', and featured on the Today Show. 


    Lisa went to Italy on vacation in 2012. On her last day there, she made the decision of a lifetime to move to Florence! She wrote about her adventures of life in Italy and, as her readership grew, women started writing to her. They were asking Lisa to show them around Tuscany. Interested in her story, they also wanted to discover their own inner strength and courage. To answer that request, Lisa co-founded A Better Way to Italy, and recently founded, Find Yourself in Tuscany.


    Lisa Condie is a native of Salt Lake City, Utah, now living in Florence, Italy. While raising two children, she enjoyed a career in the fitness industry that spanned thirty-two years. She was an instructor, personal trainer, presenter, and owned two fitness related companies.


    In August of 2012, she sold her home and most of what was in it, left her business, retired her aerobic shoes, said goodbye to friends and family, to head for Tuscany. Being a resident of Italy has allowed Lisa to cultivate relationships with the very people that FYI Tuscany will depend on. By knowing them, the culture and the city intimately, attendees will have an experience beyond that of a regular tourist. She has hand-picked the tours, hotel rooms and restaurants.
    But, most of all, she wants to share her passion and skills with other women.  While every chapter in our life comes with challenges and curve balls, every woman can find a way to be joyful. Lisa is a seeker of joy and a believer in serendipity.
