In this episode of Bounce we get really uncomfortable and Christina and Jacky welcome Jenny. Jenny comes from the same city as George Floyd in the US. She grew up in a world where Black lives didn't matter. Where fear was an every day worry. Where simply going out could mean danger. Jenny thank you for your honest reflections. We also really walk around the importance of understanding judgment and asking the real questions... how do we move from a place of Racism to a place of connection?
Nelson Madela has a quote which sums up this discussion. "No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be TAUGHT to LOVE. for Love comes more naturally to the human heart than the opposite".
Join us for laughter, tears and why not be curious to understand why the voice of Black lives matter is loud and needs to be heard.
Don’t we all need this episode right now. Judgment is the thing that stops us from BoUNCING... from FINDING JOY... it’s the small moments along our journey... Judgement is the barrier to connection, is fear based and is a defined barrier to resilience, freedom and personal growth... the barrier to living with others... to being enough... to be free from SHAME... don’t miss this!
Today Jackie and Christina unpack and relook at Tall-Poppy Syndrome and how when we are cut down it can stop us from trying again. (Tall poppy is
not just an Australian syndrome... it happens all other the world). Tall poppy syndrome can create:
Loss of confidence
And also how to BoUNCE back from being cut down. It's like the man in the area quote.... it's about failing and standing up again. Putting ourselves out there.
What is Tall Poppy? It's where people who stand out for their positive ideals, dreams, achievements or success... yet when they stand out it isn't always viewed positively and can be seen as antisocial or anti-cultural. Tall Poppies can generate hostility from others and also a host of undermining behaviours to bring them down a peg or two.
Jackie interviews Christina around her experience as an Executive in Australia and how she struggle with this Tall Poppy in her own career. Both Jacky and Christina share a 5 step BoUNCE process to move through when we need to get up again...
#1. Recognise what is going on - Take yourself out of the picture and just walk around it
#2. Understand if you are feeling like a victim . are you staying small because you are buying into fear and shame and seeking your worthiness from others?
#3. How to set boundaries...
#4. Finding your Village and allowing them to help you rise...
#5. Reming your self of your worthiness and the difference you are making...

This week Jackie and Christina share their insights into the inner critic, how it shows up and how to work through it when it shows up? Why?

Stand together, be friendly, forgive, love, be grateful, be Co-Happy, have Happiness, be Humble ... have Peace...

In order to BoUNCE we need to be ok to embrace our vulnerability. In this episode, Jackie and Christina share how they have navigated this week, their fears and also how they work at shifting their thinking. Moving from FEAR to LOVE. From SCARCITY to JOY.
It takes being open, recognising how we feel. It takes talking to our coach, speaking about how we feel and choosing to find our way. "The most dangerous stories we make up are the narratives that diminish our inherent worthiness we must reclaim THE TRUTH about our LOVABILITY, DIVINITY and CREATIVITY". We need to retell our story we tell ourself when we feel overwhelmed, uncertain and scared.
Jackie and Christina unpack GRACE and INTEGRITY and how these elements fit into their walk through vulnerability and into BoUNCE... Don't miss this deep felt and honest conversation from a place of LoVE.
