Meet Yourself: Learning by Living

By Lucy Liang
Have you gotten what you wanted and still didn’t feel happy or thought “it shouldn’t still feel this hard?” Hear stories from others on how they make sense of themselves, re-connect with their own inner guru, and live life with more ease & alignment. We have discussions on: - Self-discovery & how we “meet ourselves.” - How to live in alignment with what you want. - How to learn through living life (instead of just reading books) - What work, life and relationships can teach us about ourselves and each other.

5. The Pathless Path, Redefining Work w/Paul Millerd
Paul’s an independent writer, freelancer, coach, digital creator, and author of The Pathless Path - a story about finding yourself in the wrong life, and then doing the REAL work of figuring out how to live. Through experimentation (learning through living!), Paul pieces together a set of ideas and principles that guide him from unfulfilled & burned out to a more purposeful life. The Pathless Path is about leaving a path centered around “getting ahead” (Default Path) and instead focusing on doing work that matters to YOU (Pathless Path) without blowing up your life. If you’re considering leaving your job, embarking on a new path, and dealing with the uncertainty of leaving the default path, then you don’t want to miss today’s conversation!

4. Balancing Our Inner Elements with Robin Goldberg, DMD
Robin is a dentist who also teaches meditation. She uses meditation techniques to help people move through their personal paths of spiritual development. While meditation has been super helpful in many many areas of her life, the one area she still felt out of control with was her weight and relationship to food. Last summer, she finally took steps to integrate that final part when she joined our Badass Body Boss program. In this episode, you’ll learn about her story with food, how her mindset has shifted around that, how meditation has helped her notice & integrate aspects of herself, and she even shares a short meditation with us halfway through the show. 👋 Connect with Robin!

2. "Dream Job" Myth, Fear & Defining Success with Angie Wang
As the clock struck midnight when she turned 30, Angie realized not only did she not like her job, but she was blaming her “entrapment” on external circumstances like society and family. She decided “no more excuses,” let go of her chains, and set off to define her own calling. As she went from tech -> fitness -> podcasting -> life coaching, each time she discovered new things about herself that continue to provoke curiosity and propel her down this amazing life path she carved. You’ll learn about fears around judgment and imposter syndrome, how guilt plays a role in our choice of work, how to test-drive with your “dream life” in small steps without blowing it up, limiting beliefs around money and work as a digital nomad and as an immigrant in the US, and more. 👋 Connect with Angie!

How guilt plays a role in our choice of work. How to deal with the different “parts” of us that make up our Internal Family System. Why chasing a “dream life” often leads to disillusionment, and how to do it in a more experimental way via the Odyssey Journey method. Why this “dream” can be an illusion. Limiting beliefs around money, family, and work - and how that changes when you’re a digital nomad vs being an immigrant in the US. Our surprising realizations of what “success” had meant to us. How parental modeling shapes our beliefs. Dealing with conflicting beliefs about the corporate ladder. Masculine and Feminine traits in work & life. Harmonizing money/results with experience/flourishing. On being honest at 2 levels (with others + with yourself).

1. The 3 Stages of Self-Discovery + Why I'm doing this
Have you ever worked hard to get what you wanted and still didn't feel happy? There are 3 stages that I've noticed everyone goes through on the path to self-discovery: The Hostage Stage The Driver Stage The VIP Passenger/Guest Stage Once you understand these stages, it starts to make sense why this journey feels so hard (even though we think it shouldn't). And why this led me to start this podcast. --- Support this show: anchor.fm/meet-yourself/support Weekly Newsletter: lucyliang.com/newsletter Work with Me: lucyliang.com/work-with-me/ Contact: lucyliang.com/contact/
