Episode 38: Next Level Thoughts

podcast Nov 20, 2019

Ever made a huge decision that felt so right and suddenly you were met with fear and doubt? Perhaps you hear the voice in your head asking you, “What was so wrong with where you were? How are you possibly going to make this work? Are you sure you’re good enough for this?”.


Before you go back to where things were comfortable, I’m here to tell you this is a natural part of evolving into your future self and these are the thoughts I call: Next Level Thoughts.

These are the thoughts where, if not recognized instantly, most people turn around and give up on their dreams. Whether it’s the dream career, role, partner, or weight.

If you’re anything like me and my clients, and you love setting goals for yourself no matter the time of year, then you don’t want to miss this episode where you’ll discover how to instantly recognize Next Level Thoughts so that you can move beyond this moment and focus on achieving your dreams.
