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!
