A few things I keep hearing in my coaching sessions...

My name is Sanni McCandless and I’m a life coach for outdoor-focused individuals who want to create more tailored, intentional lifestyles. I help people establish a clear, thoughtful path towards what they want while uprooting any old thought patterns, limiting beliefs, fear and self-doubt that might be getting in their way. When I started Outwild with my cofounders Courtney and Jeremy, one of my goals was to help more people change their lives for the better, faster. So today I'd thought I'd share a few of the limiting beliefs I frequently hear as a coach in case this sounds familiar to any of you...

Three things I hear from my clients on a regular basis:

  • Being a good person means self-sacrifice.

  • A passionate lifestyle is an irresponsible lifestyle.

  • Uncomfortableness is something to avoid.

What do I believe?

  • We are capable of the most kindness and compassion when we’ve taken care of ourselves first.

  • When we live passionately, we are more motivated and energized. This enables us to think more clearly, get more done, and become more creative problem-solvers. Believe me, your responsibilities won’t know what hit them.

  • Being uncomfortable signifies that you’re pushing yourself, pushing yourself requires vulnerability, and vulnerability is where growth happens.

If this type of thinking intrigues you, I hope you’ll consider attending an Outwild event. Changing your life can be an ass-kicking, but it is so dang worth it! And it’s much better with new friends, guidance, and day-hikes along the way.

Thanks for reading!
