In the 5 years I’ve been hosting this podcast, this is the first time I’ve tackled this topic and, funny enough, it’s one of my most asked questions: “How do you make time for sex?” “How often should I be having sex?” “How can I have sex when I’m so tired?” versions of those pop up on every single survey I’ve ever sent my listeners. So today, we are tackling those questions and more in one of my most open and frank interviews. Dr. Sonia Wright is one the show today to help us all gain a little more sex confidence.

Do you ever feel a nagging sense of dissatisfaction, even when you’ve accomplished big things? Guilt, shame and hidden trauma can keep us from pleasure –whether it’s luxuriating in our free time, enjoying every bite of a delicious meal with or prioritizing pleasure in our sex life.

On today’s show, Dr. Valerie Rein helps us understand why we feel bad about experiencing pleasure, how society has conditioned us to not trust other women and even ourselves. Today we’ll flip the question of How much can I bear? on its head into How good can it get?

How often do you use the word “should” when thinking about your day? I should be doing this or I should stop doing that. Who decided what you should or should not do? Often we don’t ask that question - we just assume that we should just live up to expectations without wondering who set those expectations in the first place. Today’s episode will help you question the rule makers (also known as the patriarchy) and live life by rules of your own making. Reclaiming your power starts by understanding who we are really fighting.

How can anyone authentically love you if you don’t allow them to see you? That’s the question posed by today’s guest, Terri Cole.

The real you–the you that deserves a place in this world. In today’s show, we do a short assessment to help you see which of the 5 areas of your life need stronger boundaries with action steps to help you feel more confident.

What does it mean to reclaim your power? Studies show that many women tend to shy away from the word “power” because we worry about how it affects everyone around us. We play small because that’s how we’ve been raised by the world, by society–to be a good girl and play by the rules. But when we shy away from our power, we don’t step into our full potential. We don’t allow our gifts to shine and make the impact we truly desire. Today’s episode sets the stage for our season on reclaiming our power and living a life on our terms.

Our measurement of success usually comes in the form of numbers. We track how well we are doing based on what those numbers tell us. But how do you decide which numbers to track? The hard truth is that most of us have spent a lot of time tracking numbers that take us out of alignment with our true definition of success. In today’s episode we’ll talk about vanity metrics, I’ll pull back the curtain on the truth behind most of those impressive numbers we see online and I’ll share how you can create your own scorecard for success.

How do you possibly live On Purpose when you don’t have a vision for what you want? Or what do you do when your dream is taken away? Often the realities of daily circumstances keep us from truly stepping into the life we want and it may seem difficult to separate the circumstances of your present with the possibilities of your future.

On today’s episode we’re talking about how you see the micro-miracles in your day, how you can cast a realistic vision for your future that feels vastly different from your daily life and how we step into the extraordinary life.

Purpose has so much weight to it and, because of that, we can shy away from figuring out our purpose. But if you aren’t living on purpose– living with intention and towards something bigger than today– life can feel meaningless and dull. We often struggle through life based on what we think we are “supposed” to do. Today’s episode gets to the heart of how you can live with more intention even when you feel like you don’t know your purpose and how we can carve out more time to do what matters most.

Motivation is the word mentioned more than any other on this week’s episode. Why? We often we blame our lack of motivation as the main reason why we don’t follow through or why we have abandoned goals in the past. Motivation is key when it comes to accomplishing any big goal or dream. So how do we build motivation to accomplish our goals? We start by using a framework that guarantees our success - the IMPACT framework will help you set your goals so motivation feels easier.

Your thoughts have the ability to influence your reality. So often we forget or we don’t notice our own thoughts, but the truth is: scientists have discovered that about 85% of your thoughts are negative and 70% of those thoughts repeat constantly.. Our brain is primed to help us survive and belong--even if survival means not living your best life. In today’s episode, Cathy Heller and I discuss what it would look like to embrace rejection, why we don’t want everyone to like us and how we can choose our thoughts, which helps us choose our future.

The biggest mistake people make with their goals is that they don’t set the right goals. Let me phrase that: They don’t set the right goals for themselves.

In today’s episode we’ll talk about how you discover your purpose and how to set goals that are aligned with the vision you have for your future. It’s time to stop living life on repeat and step into the extraordinary life you were designed to live.

Is adversity an advantage? Sometimes it can feel like the deck is stacked against you… but what if that is actually an opportunity to step into becoming your best self?
