BIG BELIEF is just so scary because it creates opportunity for BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! I suppose you could just believe small, achieve small, love small, and live small, but if you're reading this - those kinds of solutions are not an option for you!
The best solution is to build your CAPACITY to feel disappointment so that when it does show up, it doesn't have such a devastating impact.
How do you do that? You FEEL it! You don't buffer it, you don't resist it, and you don't appease it. You ALLOW it.
In this episode Whit discusses the BIG DISAPPOINTMENT she felt after choosing the BIG BELIEF that she was pregnant. She holds nothing back as she walks you through the practical steps and the emotional experience of befriending her disappointment.
"As I continue to practice allowing ALL emotion, my life gets fuller, richer, and more authentic." - Whit
As Whit and I get back to life after taking 12 teenagers on a 7 day wilderness adventure, we reflect on some of the insights that came up while the kids were staring at challenges with NO BELIEF that success was possible. Then what they learned as they leaned into the impossible hard enough to make it possible.
The key is the fuel ...the emotion ...the feeling that you are experience as you are taking on a difficult challenge. I KNOW you have a "mountain" of your own - that challenge in your own life that just looks impossible from here. I believe that these lesson learned in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California are the same lessons that help you to climb yours.
I don’t know about you, but when I see people who surf, climb mountains or seek out challenges that require facing fear and discomfort- I WANT what they have, but I tell myself “it’s just not MY thing. “
That spirit of adventure, courage, and freedom is so attractive to me.
Of course, a lot of people WANT to be “good” at surfing but if you had the opportunity to surf, just for the experience of it, would you go?
I like to think I would, so I tested it out.
Two and a half years ago, I finally sought out a trip like this.
I had recently made a life-altering choice to give up alcohol. It was a decision, I made willingly in order to pursue my dreams more seriously and become the woman I knew those dreams would require me to be.
When I discovered a surf trip was a possibility, there were a lot of reasons I thought it "wasn’t for me”.
For one, it was last-minute plus it was in a different country, El Salvador.
Hi there! I’m so glad to be in touch with you again. Do you feel unfulfilled because you lack having a clear passion to follow in your life?
I understand that feeling and as someone who has been on both sides of the fence: finding my passion and fulfilling it, to figuring it out “what’s next” after it was fulfilled, I feel that I walked a wide spectrum and I can share some thoughts.
When I was 26 years old, I was living in Hawaii, happily married, running a management business and surfing every day. It was a great life. Yet, something within me kept pressing for “more”. There was a running desire that kept telling me: “You need to live your dreams and your time is now!”
In a sense, my passion found me, because it was so in my face constantly, almost as an obsessive thought, reminding me that I wanted to manifest it.
The problem was, that the dream that I wanted to manifest seemed pretty impossible.
For a few years, I didn’t...
About 5 months ago, I read Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey. It really gave me a better understanding about the perks of training your body to become "fat-adapted". Since I'm not a nutritionist and don't like suggesting anything except for sharing my own personal experience, I won't go into much detail about the science I learned from reading the book. If you are curious, I suggest you purchase the book on Amazon to get a deeper understanding. It's worth the read.
The main reason I wanted to write about this concept of adding a healthy fat into your coffee to substitute for breakfast is that I've gained amazing results from using one of Dave Asprey recommendations, MCT Oil.
When I share with people that I add this to my coffee- most people haven't heard of it and ask- "what's that"? So I'll explain the very basics.
MCT oil is Medium-chain Triglyceride, which are triglycerides whose fatty acids have an aliphatic tail of 6–12 carbon atoms. The fatty acids found in MCTs are called...
