    (Matt Monday): Doomed to Never Find Love? This Will Change Your Story...

    enSeptember 18, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Overcoming Limiting Beliefs to Find LoveAngie's story of overcoming physical challenges and healing her self-worth serves as a reminder that we all have the power to overcome our limiting beliefs and find love despite life's challenges.

      Our limiting beliefs about our ability to find love can be dissolved, allowing us to move forward and find happiness. Angie's story serves as a powerful reminder of this. She was hit by a drunk driver at the age of 23, leaving her injured and facing a future without the ability to walk again. Despite being told she would never live independently or take care of herself, Angie defied the odds and learned to walk again. However, her self-worth was still affected, and she struggled to find a way to rebuild it. She turned to YouTube and found inspiration in Matthew's videos, which helped her begin the process of healing and rebuilding her life. Angie's story shows us that no matter what challenges we face, we have the power to overcome them and find love. It's important to recognize and challenge the limiting beliefs we hold about ourselves and our ability to find love, and to seek out resources and support when we need it.

    • Overcoming self-doubt through vulnerability and friendshipVulnerability and forming friendships can help build confidence and overcome self-doubt. Confronting fears with understanding and patience leads to self-acceptance and growth.

      Confidence is a deeply personal and complex emotion, and overcoming self-doubt often requires courage and determination. The speaker shared their experience of struggling with feelings of worthiness and fear of rejection, which they discovered were common among women. They attended an event focused on confidence, where they met others on similar journeys, and formed lasting friendships. A pivotal moment occurred during a retreat in Florida, where Angela encouraged the speaker to confront her fears in a one-on-one conversation with a man. Despite her initial reluctance, the speaker eventually shared her insecurities, and the man responded with understanding and patience. This experience taught the speaker the importance of vulnerability and self-acceptance in building confidence and forming meaningful connections. The speaker continues to apply the lessons learned from these experiences and Matthew's work to further develop their confidence and personal growth.

    • Past experiences and insecurities shape perceptions and behaviorsReflecting on past experiences and insecurities can help us embrace vulnerability and live more authentic lives

      Our past experiences and insecurities can significantly impact how we perceive ourselves and others. In the conversation, the speaker recounted an instance where they were accused of being arrogant, which led them to reflect on their own insecurities and how they had been hiding them behind a facade. This moment of self-realization came after a phone call from a friend, who had reminded them of an earlier conversation about the importance of embracing vulnerability. Another example the speaker shared was a memory of an embarrassing moment in the kitchen, where they had fallen and their skirt had risen, revealing their legs. Instead of focusing on the potential embarrassment, the speaker was more concerned about their insecurities being exposed. This experience, along with the earlier conversation, made the speaker realize that they had been holding themselves back due to their insecurities. These experiences illustrate how our past experiences and insecurities can shape our perceptions and behaviors, sometimes in ways we don't even realize. By acknowledging and addressing these insecurities, we can learn to embrace vulnerability and live more authentic lives.

    • The Power of Kindness and AuthenticityKindness, no matter how small, can deeply impact someone's life. Be open to help from others and accept yourself, scars and all, to build meaningful connections. The 'get the guy' techniques can help approach and connect with a partner by being authentic and open about past.

      Acts of kindness, no matter how small, can have a profound impact on someone's life. The speaker shared a story about a woman who washed his dress after he fell and how that simple act touched him deeply and stayed with him. This experience taught him the importance of being open to help from others and the power of kindness in building connections. Another key takeaway is the importance of being true to oneself and not letting others' opinions define one's worth. The speaker mentioned how he learned to accept himself, scars and all, and not let potential partners' reactions determine his self-worth. Lastly, the speaker emphasized the effectiveness of the "get the guy" techniques shared by Matthew, which helped him approach and connect with his current partner by being authentic and open about his past.

    • The power of vulnerability and trust in relationshipsSharing stories and vulnerabilities with loved ones can lead to profound experiences, personal growth, and even starting a charity to help others.

      Sharing our stories and vulnerabilities with loved ones can lead to profound experiences and personal growth. The speaker shared a story about her partner surprising her with a romantic proposal during a trip to Scotland. Despite initial nerves and mishaps, the moment was made special by the beautiful setting and the speaker's trust and openness with her partner. Additionally, the speaker mentioned how sharing her own personal struggles with her partner led her to start a charity and help others. This experience at a retreat provided her with the confidence and support to overcome her fears and make a positive impact in the world. Overall, the power of vulnerability and trust in relationships can lead to transformative experiences and personal growth.

    • Embracing Love and Support During Challenging TimesDespite unexpected life challenges, the love and care of loved ones can help us heal and embrace new experiences. Resilience, love, and community are essential in overcoming adversity.

      Life can take unexpected turns, and it's essential to appreciate the love and support of those around us during challenging times. The speaker shares her experience of being told she may never have a child due to injuries from an accident. This devastating news was hard to accept, but the love and care of her loved ones, including her husband and parents, helped her through. The speaker encourages others to attend a retreat and embrace new experiences, even if they seem different from their goals or expectations. She emphasizes that despite her physical scars and life changes, she feels like one of the girls and is grateful for the opportunity to share her story. The speaker's journey reminds us of the importance of resilience, love, and the power of community in overcoming adversity.

    • Personal growth through unexpected pathsDiscover fulfillment and new tools for self-improvement by embracing unexpected journeys and the support of coaches and mentors.

      Personal growth and transformation are possible, no matter where you start from or what obstacles you face. The speaker, who had initially thought she wanted to go in one direction, found herself on a different path but discovered fulfillment and new tools for self-improvement. She expressed her gratitude to her coaches and mentors, including Matthew and Angela, who had supported her journey. Angela, in turn, was recognized for her inspiring work and her own transformation. The speaker encouraged listeners to seize the opportunity to experience the same transformative process for themselves at the upcoming live retreat, which was nearing its final registration period. Overall, the message was one of hope, growth, and the power of supportive relationships in fostering personal development.

    (Rewind): Don’t Avoid Difficult Conversations In Relationships. Do THIS…

    (Rewind): Don’t Avoid Difficult Conversations In Relationships. Do THIS…
    Sometimes we avoid speaking up about what we really want with a person because we're afraid we will "make waves" in the relationship.

    We come from a place of fear and anxiety. "What if me telling him I want something to be different makes him walk away altogether?" we think to ourselves.

    So we ignore the conversation and silently suffer.

    But then nothing gets better. We just put off the conversation for another day while time keeps moving on.
    If this is you, this episode is for you.

    Fearless Emotions

    Fearless Emotions

    In today's podcast episode, I want to talk to every strong woman who is doing her best she can but still finds herself feeling inadequate and not strong enough. 

    Since no one has all the answers and we all need a break, it's safe to say that taking the "I have my shit together" mask off is the surest way to fulfillment and true authenticity. 

    Many of us have developed a belief that we have to be strong at all times. Many of us believe that that's what strong women do which can't be further from the truth.  

    Our own expectations to be and act perfect, to constantly care for others and rarely take a break creates way too much pressure that is becoming difficult to handle. 

    Since I have my share of struggles in this area, I know that being a perfectly strong woman isn't as empowering as it sounds. Constantly suppressing my emotions and pretending that I am the toughest cookie in the room cost me burn-out and a mental breakdown. 

    If you are finding yourself in my words, then this podcast episode is for you. 

    Tune in and learn:

    - how I developed a belief that I have to be always strong and negative side effects of this belief

    - the fear of hurt and our urge to build walls and armor up 

    - why protecting yourself from hurt means protecting yourself from love

    - the most powerful way on how to deal with negative emotions, embrace vulnerability and understanding of true empowerment

    Unconditional Love

    Unconditional Love

    "How can we love ourselves and others without condition, prejudice, judgment, expectations, and criticism?"

    It is one of the biggest questions that I have been thinking about lately.

    Often our love is based on conditions, not only towards others but also towards ourselves. We think, "If you do X, Y, Z, then I will love you and approve of you."

    But what if the person we expect something from doesn't do what we want? Do they deserve to be loved less?

    My client and I decided to take on an accountability game. We have to tell at least one person that we love them each day. I will go into details in today's episode and share with you our results, but frankly, it has been challenging and super fun for both of us.

    I know that some of you may be thinking, "Does it mean that I have to tolerate things I don't like? Does it mean I have to let people do whatever and still love them despite that?"

    Yes and no. Unconditional love doesn't mean we lower our standards or remove our boundaries. Unconditional love means we love someone no matter what, even when it has to be from a distance to honor ourselves and our healthy well-being.

    In today's episode, I will tell you the details about the accountability game with my client and how it is improving our interpersonal relationships. I'll also talk about what unconditional love is but mostly, how to apply it towards loving yourself first.

    At the end of the episode, I will share with you a simple tip on how to become more mindful of loving others and set the right intentions every morning before you approach the day.

    e1: ALLOW MYSELF TO BE VISIBLE featuring Lydia McClain | Vocal Empowerment Coach and Breathwork Facilitator

    GIVE OURSELVES PERMISSION. ALLOW MYSELF TO BE VISIBLE.

    Lydia McClain has never been on a podcast before. And this would be my first one. It didn’t take long for us to get deep. As a vocal empowerment coach and breathwork facilitator, she has such a beautiful insight into connection, vulnerability and true intimacy.

    We talked about a sense of sovereignty, self-love and self-worth, unhealed relationship cycles, boundaries, partner healing sessions, accountability, speaking your truth, and perfection.

    In the end, no one has it all together all the time. We can still do the work while we work in the self-help industry. We’re all in this together.
    Own the beautiful mess that is me. Own my emotions. Own our moments.
