The first thing you need to get rid of when you’re ready for transformation is that negative voice in your head. Imposter syndrome and negative self-talk will always hold you back. Sara Sheehan guides and talks to people about their transformation with her course and program, Wake Up Transformation.
About Sara Sheehan
Sara actively encourages you to push through your negative self-talk. You are more than what the voice in your head is telling you! And if you find yourself negatively spiraling and like your life is out of control, there are ways you can turn that drift upwards into a positive life outcome.
If you’re experiencing an identity crisis, for example, from a quit that’s lead to a huge part of your life not existing anymore, you’re not alone. There are so many ways you can help yourself through something like this. Sara shares some of the ways you can work through an identity crisis, including meditation.
You’ve probably heard people talking about their 5-year plan. Sara and I both have a problem with the 5-year plan… we’ve changed so much in the last 5 years, how will we know who we’re going to be in the next 5? By creating a plan like this, and the same goes for those new year’s resolutions, you might be thinking too small and not allowing for deviations on the plan that might bring you into your higher self.
Sara recommends thinking back to what you wanted to be and do when you were 10 years old. When we embrace our hobbies and the things we loved when we were a child, we’ll reconnect back to our state of flow. And the flow is where the magic happens.
Finally, Sara explains why you can’t have a healthy transformation when you’re in a toxic environment. It’s essential that you leave unhealthy situations, relationships, or aspects of them in order to truly transform your life.
