Emotional Self-Mastery Podcast: Why Don’t You Have More Money?

Hey Kathi Hey Cheryl. What are we talking about today? Today we are exploring “Why you don’t have more money” Kathi-Um, excuse me? Why are we discussing my finances? Cheryl-I don’t mean you specifically, I’m speaking to women who are or have been chronic underearners in their careers and businesses. Kathi-Well, that would be me-LOL-Actually, this sounds like a subject many women would be interested in-and men too, but I think it’s probably primarily a women’s issue-am I right? Cheryl-You would be right. And yes, it does happen to men as well, so I do encourage them to continue listening....

Emotional Self-Mastery Podcast: What’s Your Relationship with Money?

Today we are talking about, our relationship with money. This is a subject that is an off-shoot of the Impostor Syndrome. Our relationship with money and Imposter Syndrome are tied together through our emotions. If you haven't already listened to the 2 episodes on Impostor Syndrome, I recommend that you do, as well as the next several podcasts to come. Well, actually, I recommend listening to ALL of our episodes, but yes, the last two on Impostor Syndrome would be helpful to hear to better understand its pervasiveness. Today, we are homing in on our relationship with money. Click here...

Emotional Self Mastery Podcast: Impostor Syndrome -Part 2, Resolution

Last week we defined the Impostor syndrome and explored the financial and emotional costs involved with not getting it resolved. To recap, Impostor Syndrome is defined as a psychological pattern in which an individual questions their skills, abilities, talents, or accomplishments. It causes the person to have self-doubt and to internalize the fear of “being found out” or exposed as a “fraud” -as something other than as they presented themselves. Those who experience Impostor Syndrome (IS) have difficulty internalizing their accomplishments. When you internalize your accomplishments, you fully recognize and accept your role in making it happen. You know that...

Emotional Self-Mastery Podcast: Impostor Syndrome Part 1

This week we are exploring the reality of imposter syndrome. It’s a phenomenon that virtually everyone experiences at one time or another in their life. And affects men and women, medical students, marketing managers and celebrities. Even actress and singer Barbara Streisand has experienced it. Maybe you have too. Kathi, can you tell me about a time when you felt like an impostor? If you’ll share a story, so will I. Kathi’s Story A few years ago, I was asked to serve on the board of directors for a large health care related corporation. It was a paid position, so...

Emotional Self Mastery Podcast: Jealousy

Do you remember a time when you felt jealous? Jealousy is a complex emotion. It is both human and animal and is directly related to self-esteem. When self-esteem is threatened, we become jealous. The more fragile our self-esteem the more likely we will be jealous of something or someone. We usually think about jealousy in a romantic sense. But there are different kinds of jealousy. There is sibling jealousy-when one sibling thinks the other is getting more than they are. There is co-worker jealousy and friend jealousy. Once a relationship starts to become permanent, ongoing, or one that we count...

Emotional Self-Mastery Podcast: Starting Anew

Starting anew. Whether it’s a new year, new month, new day, new relationship, starting anew leaves us with the question, “What am I going to take with me to my next experience?” I think of it like moving from an old house to a new one and what I’ll take with me to the new place. Am I going to pack everything and move it? Try to make it fit into my new space whether it should or not? Probably not. I’m probably going to have a bit of trash and undesired things to discard before moving. Starting anew and...

Emotional Self-Mastery Podcast: Overcoming Resistance and Procrastination

Today's topic is another personal subject. It is one that challenges us pretty regularly. It's the topic of Resistance and Procrastination. Maybe you're familiar with it? When I'm experiencing it, I call it "Hitting the Wall." Because it becomes from that place where my will power is not enough to get me moving. Some people call it Resistance, others Procrastination. I see them as two distinctly different things. No matter what they are called, the end result is the same - no forward movement on the project, task, or goal. Let's talk about how the two are different and see...

Emotional Self-Mastery Podcast: Dealing with Loss Part II The Reality

What a difference a week can make. Not the episode we had intended to release this week, but listen in and you'll understand. Dealing with loss courageously is good in theory, but when it's real... Last week we discussed dealing with loss courageously and the conflicting emotions that are associated with loss. We were in the midst of the end of life experience with our fur babies. We dedicated the episode to Comet, Panda and Foxie-all beloved pets of our team. Sadly, one week later, they have all three transitioned to the afterlife. We therefore have again dedicated this episode...

Emotional Self-Mastery Podcast: Dealing with Loss

Dealing with loss is not a performance. It's a personal expression. Don't judge yourself. Listen in to this podcast episode as we discuss what it means to be courageous in loss. Emotions during loss or expectation of loss can be heavy and difficult to deal with, whether it's loss of a job, the death of a family member or friend, or the loss of a furry companion (pet). We dedicate this podcast episode to 3 of those furry companions, Panda, Comet and Foxy who are all in the final stages of life. They have brought us joy, love and given...

Emotional Self-Mastery Podcast: Trigger People

Trigger people are those who trigger us into negative emotions. This podcast was recorded just before Thanksgiving 2020, and we anticipate that it isn't going to be a traditional holiday. However, there are still a lot of possibilities to be triggered-whether you are gathering or not. Sometimes it can be on the freeway in a store or even something on the news. At one time or another we all get triggered by what people do or say or don't do or say. Sometimes, it's a personality type rather than a specific person that triggers us. People who aren't being polite...
