Adversity is not an Excuse! How To Find Strength in Hard Times with Mindy Henderson
Welcome Mindy Henderson, motivational speaker and accountability coach that lives in Austin, Texas! You can check her out at Mindyhendersonspeaks.com, on IG @mindyannehinderson or check out her YouTube for her uplifting, motivational content! Mindy was diagnosed at the age of 2 with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. The doctors told her parents that she was supposed to die at the age of 3. At the time, they were on a medical scavenger hunt, had ended up at the Mayo Clinic, and the doctors were wrong! Mindy's dad did physical therapy with her at the age of 2 to help her get better. He didn't listen to the doctors prediction for her life. Today, Mindy lives her life from a wheelchair, but that doesn't stop her from changing lives. Mindy now offers tools and relatable strategies to help people navigate inevitable adversity, while showing them how rich their lives truly are. Mindy says that hope is one of the #1 tools for coping with adversity. I asked her if she remembers a time where she felt like a victim to her circumstances? Or was she always so positive about it?  She tell us, "Growing up, I came home from school crying on a regular basis. My parents would tell me to “Count my blessings.” All I wanted to do was cry and be angry but their message stuck. I grew up knowing how many blessings I had and ultimately my disability has made me such a stronger person!" I asked her - What is a day in your life like? In what areas do you need physical help?  "Most people can get out of bed in 5 to 10 seconds physically. For me it takes seven minutes with help from my assistant. AND I’m fiercely independent and I’ve worked hard over my life to be intentional to live as normal of a life as possible!" "Words have power! Be careful of what you say every day because it might be subtle but it sets the tone for the space you park your brain in. If you look at it the right way adversity can be temporary," "I like to say that my disability is not my problem." "You can’t compare your hardship to someone else’s hardship- if it’s a big deal to you then it’s a big deal. Don’t play the comparison game." "If you never feel your feelings, I think you will end up crashing and burning. Get quiet. Reflect on what’s happening. But you can’t camp out there. You know when you’ve been wallowing for too long. It feels good to start taking action." "The very thing that creates our adversity can be the thing that drives us to success." "The easier road is to keep numbing this. The brave road is to create the margin in your time to think about the hard things you’ve gone through in life." "You were created for a reason. Your creator does not make accidents." Thank you, Mindy, for sharing your incredible story with us. You're amazing!

Boundary Setting Strategies that Build Self-Respect with Janelle Lynnae
You might have a problem with boundary-setting if you: Are a big People-Pleaser You feel an ongoing sense of guilt or fear if other people aren’t happy with you You feel like you’re always responsible for other peoples happiness You often don’t feel “good enough” for your work, significant other, family, etc. Feel free to check out this awesome article I found called 18 Signs You Lack Personal Boundaries. This will help you put your finger on what areas you most want to grow in. Having boundaries is important because setting said boundaries with ourselves and others leads to feeling more peaceful and free. It raises your level of self-respect, confidence, and allows you to let go of people-pleasing!  In today's podcast, I will give you some ideas of strong and clear boundaries that I encourage you to implement in your life. The main 3 categories covered today include: Practical ways to set work boundaries How to speak up for yourself and create relational boundaries The importance of creating screen boundaries Check out this article, quoted on today's show, on how working on weekends impacts your well-being. The 4 Steps to a Clearing Conversation: 1.  The lie I created was.... (I'm annoying) 2. Where this lie came from... (i.e. tangible examples of things he or she did) 3. You can support me by... (not calling me XYZ) 4. What you can expect from me is... (AKA how can I show up better for you?) Like Brene Brown says, "Clear is kind, unclear is unkind." Thank you for listening!

Kick Anxiety in the FACE! with Kate Schoenecker
Today's guest is Kate Schoenecker is a Confidence Consultant for Next Level Confident (yes, we work together!) Personal Trainer, and Yoga Instructor! You can check out her IG @mckatester or email her hello@janellelynnae.com "Some people think their walk with anxiety has to be their reality. I don’t have everything figured out but I have experienced a lot of hope and freedom in this area so I’m passionate about helping other women." Anxiety and depression is affecting 40 million adults in the United States. 18.1% of our population. Anxiety is highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of people receive treatment. Kate shares that she’s been battling different forms of anxiety since she was 3 or 4. "I first went to therapy for Tricotilomania. But when I got older, I thought seeing a therapist made me weak. I originally saw a doctor because I thought there was something wrong with my heart, but it turns out they were panic attacks. I had tingly fingers and numbness. A hard time breathing and chest pain." We will answer questions like: How do I know if I have severe anxiety? How can I stop shaming my thoughts? How do I stop unwanted thoughts? How can I use my anxiety for good? Should I go get bloodwork done? How to have a healthy relationship with my body?  How can I have a healthy relationship with myself? Why do I have so much social anxiety when I'm heading to an event? Many of us have fearful, intrusive thoughts. These are unwelcome thoughts that cause more and more fears. This can become a scary loop where are you don’t know what is reality and what’s not. One technique that's worked for Kate is naming the fear a persons name.. like Sally. So instead of resisting your intrusive thoughts, play with them! What are the 5 creative things you have done to kick anxiety in the face? 1. Get your bloodwork taken. If you’re missing nutrients, a side effect can be anxiety. I had an Iron deficiency. I went and saw an Integrative RD. 2. Thought play. Create a separate identity for your fear. Being able to laugh at yourself and your taboo thoughts! 3. Keep track of less. What all are you keeping track of? Take an inventory of what all you’re tracking in your brain. Counting Calories. Weighing yourself every day. Social media.  4. Take inventory of your movement patterns. If you’re constantly working out super hard, doing HIIT or long runs, it might be causing elevated stress your levels. Weight lifting. Cardio. If your workouts are always super intense it can lead to chronic stress. “It’s not all about calories in, calories out. Recent studies are showing that stress is playing a bigger role in what your body looks like.”  5. Try something totally new! Keep an open mind. Something you wouldn’t have tried before. Like chiropractic care, acupuncture, a float tank, water coloring. "I don’t need to be ashamed of my anxiety. It’s not weakness. It’s fire! It’s power!" "Slow and steady wins the race. It’s okay that you don’t have it all right now!" Thank you, Kate, for sharing your powerful mind on today's podcast!

"I was a baseball player but struggled with my weight. I wanted to be fit like the people I saw in the magazine, so I started with the Atkins diet in secret." "I became obsessed with nutrition, I wanted to have the lowest body fat ever & ripped muscles, so I started doing body building in my early 20’s." "With body building, there was a lot of vanity & ego involved. I thought that being a body builder would make me healthy, but a lot of these body builders didn’t actually care about their internal health. Through the process I learned it's not just about looking good but also feeling good." Briana Owen shares her story: "I had breast implants - I thought if I look a certain way then I’ll love myself.

Challenge the Status Quo & Break Free from Validation with Zach Smith
Mindset Coach Zach Smith shares his story about getting a rare condition called alopecia at the age of 7 and how he most of his life seeking validation from others, desperately wanting to fit in.  As a child he was bullied & teased for having no hair, and became suicidal at a very young age. As he grew up, he began to think the way most of us have thought before, "I'll be the best at everything. I'll be perfect. I'll out perform everyone. And when I have the fancy car & the big house, then I’ll be happy". About a year ago, Zach realized he wasn't fulfilled with his fancy job. He began to question the status quo & his social conditioning. On his journey, he learned how to break free from validation from others, found his why for living life, and began rooting his worthiness in something much deeper than perfection & worldly success.  He challenges you to ask the question: "What are you pretending not to know?" Have the courage to face your life. You can choose a life that lights you up, not just a life of surviving. Friends, this is a must listen episode! Connect with Zach on IG: @Zach_Ivan_Smith

Self-Hatred, Eating Disorders & Finding Healing with Courtney Ballard
Coach Courtney Ballard & I talk about body image, eating disorders, purging, feeling stuck, self hatred, and hopelessness. I would venture to say that MOST women especially have struggled with these thoughts at some point in their life. In order to heal from this, you must begin creating a relationship with your heart & bringing people into your pain.  Ultimately, the goal is to find value in who you are & accept yourself as whole.  Courtney coaches entrepreneurs & leaders in the world process their pain & emotions by releasing trauma so they can have a greater impact in the world. But even if you aren't an entrepreneur or self proclaimed leader, Courtney would still love to hear from you.  Connect with Courtney on Instagram: @courtneyyyballard Or Courtney's Facebook is: Courtney Ballard

Break-ups, Sex, & New Beginnings with Tam Salinas
Tam Salinas & I discuss romantic relationships: specifically learning when to walk away from a relationship that’s not a good fit and the importance of knowing who you are looking to date. Tam talks about her new decision to wait to have sex until marriage *gasp*. Ultimately, it's knowing that each human is capable of new beginnings and that leaps of faith are required in order to find GREATNESS in your partner. You must step away from a "good' dating relationship in order to find a "great" one! Want to share your story or get support on a relationship you're unsure about? Interested in the idea of waiting to have sex until marriage? Tam would love to hear from you! Connect with Tam on Instagram: @tam_salinas

Victim Mentality, Lies, & the Power of Your Mind with Janelle Lynnae
This is my first podcast ever & I decided to share my story in an extremely.. um.. vulnerable way.  As a young girl, I had some very dark thoughts & because of these thoughts, I began believing some crazy lies. I believed those lies to be truth & I was letting life pass me by. I had a victim mentality and it crippled me for years without me even realizing what was happening. This podcast is likely to get you thinking about what you  believe to be true about yourself, your life, what you're capable of, and why you started believing that truth or lie.  Let's get to the root of the issue so ultimately you can break free from the lies & live a life of action.
