If you’ve ever downplayed yourself or minimized an achievement, or perhaps feel like you’re playing small with the real potential that you know God has placed inside of you, then this podcast episode is for you. This coaching podcast explores how to break this self-sabotaging and self-critical habit that’s not only making you feel “not enough,” but is keeping you from showing up fully and shining brightly in your life.

Comparing yourself is the fast track to self-doubt, spinning your wheels, and insecurity.
Are you ready to feel alive?
I’ll teach you my proven 3-part strategy to break the pattern of comparing yourself to others.
This is a FREE CLASS that you’ll get INSTANT ACCESS to:
Fan for a few years –
Texas Fan and Grandmother
Trish, thank you for speaking the truth to counteract so many of the subtle lies I believe every day about myself and my self-worth.
Feel bad for making other people not be so good
Uncomfortable with attention on us
Someone said something to you once (like Brent .. Who are you to…)
Self-protection from expectations or public failure
False humility – we don’t want to make others “feel bad”
Is it wrong to be successful?
It leaves us with a smaller life.
It creates a smaller world.
It limits us.
It prevents us from living a big life.
A big life requires big thinking – and big self-concept – and big reasonability.
Present yourself with openness
Celebrate the potential in others
Determine that your greatness is an example, not a discouragement
Accept some of the awkwardness
Brush off compliments
Justify your success
Think you’re just lucky
Tell yourself it’s because other people helped you
Compare yourself to others as proof of diminishment
Maximizing what doesn’t go well, minimizing what does
A self-critical voice is your dominant voice
Me dismissing my greatness is an insult to the God who put my talent inside of me.
I am thankful for the effort I put in.
I am an example of what is possible for others.
I am committed to a life of growth.
I will not insult who God made me be.
I am responsible for maximizing everything I have been given.
I pursue excellence, not perfection.
The world needs people to shine brightly.
I have permission to live a big life.
