    Your Inner Critic's winning strategy for your life

    Your Inner Critic's winning strategy for your life

    Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a cycle of striving for success but never feeling truly fulfilled?

    In this episode of the Dethroning Your Inner Critic podcast, host Joanna Kleinman explains how your "winning strategy" – the positive quality you developed in childhood to cope with feelings of inadequacy – might actually be holding you back.

    Here's why you should listen:

    • Discover how your winning strategy, like being smart, kind, or enthusiastic, can mask deeper feelings of not being enough.
    • Learn how to identify your winning strategy and understand its origin story.
    • Gain insights into how to break free from the cycle of using your winning strategy to seek validation and find true fulfillment.

    Reflection Questions:

    1. What is your winning strategy? How does it show up in your life?
    2. Have you ever felt like you need to overcompensate with your winning strategy to feel good enough?
    3. Are you ready to explore the possibility that your winning strategy might be keeping you stuck?

    Subscribe to the Dethroning Your Inner Critic podcast for more insights on understanding and overcoming your inner critic.

    What do nature and confidence have in common?

    What do nature and confidence have in common?

    In this episode of the Dethroning Your Inner Critic Podcast, Joanna Kleinman challenges the idea that confidence is just about external achievements and proposes a deeper, more universal truth: everyone experiences self-doubt and insecurity, but true confidence arises from connecting with your authentic self, free from the ego's limitations.

    The host argues that our automatic mind, the "IC," creates false identities and attachments that hinder us. Letting go of these and connecting with our "Authentic Self" (AS) fosters natural confidence. True purpose, instead of being something you need to figure out, emerges from aligning with the flow of the universe and bringing consciousness into the world through your own actions.

    Reflection Questions:

    1. How does your "IC" manifest in your life? What are some triggers for your self-doubt?

    2. How can you connect more deeply with your "AS"? What practices or activities help you feel authentic?

    3. What does "bringing consciousness into the world" mean to you? How can you contribute your unique light?

    OPEN Advocacy: Pioneering Legal Rights for Non-Monogamists with Brett Chamberlin

    OPEN Advocacy: Pioneering Legal Rights for Non-Monogamists with Brett Chamberlin

    This week, Charna interviews Brett Chamberlin, the founder and executive director of OPEN, the Organization for Polyamory and Ethical Nonmonogamy. Brett opens by sharing his journey of transitioning from environmental activism to the advocacy for more awareness and legal rights for non-monogamists. This includes anyone who subscribes to relationship designs outside the norm of one man and one woman, including single people.

    He also discusses the cultural implications of nonmonogamy, the impact of societal norms, the progressing nonmonogamy movement, and the importance of community, consent, and cooperative living in practicing non-monogamy.

    When it comes to having a successful non-monogamous relationship, Brett emphasizes the relevance of developing effective communication skills, having a clear understanding of personal desires, and the establishment of healthier relationships. He calls for the questioning and challenging of the supremacy of monogamous relationships in society and how dismantling this norm will lead to a more inclusive, loving society.

    Charna ends the episode by sharing resources for people looking to explore the world of non-monogamy, as well as, an exercise designed to help you focus in on the characteristics and nuances you’re looking for in a partner when choosing a potential mate.

    Lil Nas X: Overcoming the Battle Between Embracing Authenticity & Navigating Society's Expectations

    Lil Nas X: Overcoming the Battle Between Embracing Authenticity & Navigating Society's Expectations

    Do you feel that you struggle with being authentic? 

    Do you want to overcome the judgment of society's perceptions of what it means to be authentic? 

    Today, Jay sits down with Lil Nas X. Lil Nas X is a 24-year-old award-winning rapper, singer, songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia. Dubbed “an internationally recognized phenomenon” by Billboard, Lil Nas X rose to fame in 2019 when he released “Old Town Road” and shattered genre norms, disrupted the charts and went viral worldwide.  After a highly successful EP and several multi-platinum songs, Nas went on to release his critically acclaimed and GRAMMY-nominated debut album Montero in September 2021, which featured the culture-shifting 6x Platinum hit “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)”. Following the release of Lil Nas X’s latest single “J CHRIST”, his beautiful new documentary, Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero, debuted this weekend on HBO and is available to stream now on Max.

    In this vulnerable episode Lil Nas X shares his story from being a shy kid in Atlanta Georgie to achieving his wildest dreams. Lil Nas X has proven that there is power of self-awareness and embracing your true identity, even in the face of loss and grief. He shares with us personal stories that have shaped him into the person he is today, and the person he is working on becoming. 

    The conversation navigates through fears, the misunderstood aspects of Lil Nas' message in his latest single, and the importance of cherishing time with family. They discuss spirituality, the quest for genuine love, dealing with a lack of control, and overcoming inner voices. 

    In this interview, you'll learn:

    • How to embrace authenticity
    • How to deal with societal expectations
    • How to be true to yourself
    • How to genuinely believe in what you love to do
    • How to make peace with your inner voice

    Tune in for a thought-provoking and heartwarming conversation that validates our humanness, flaws and strengths, and our ability to overcome difficult times.

    With Love and Gratitude,

    Jay Shetty

    048: From the Inside Out: Healing and Self-Acceptance for Effective Leadership

    048: From the Inside Out: Healing and Self-Acceptance for Effective Leadership

    In this final episode of 2023, Elena Armijo reflects on the year at The C-Suite Collective, the executive coaching company she founded, discussing the importance of slowing down in order to go fast. As a fast-paced leader, Elena realized that taking the time to ensure people were on board and understood expectations was crucial. Throughout the year, The C-Suite Collective intentionally focused on building strong foundations, including processes, values, and fostering community conversations.

    Check out Elena’s website to learn more about how she can support you in seeing and using the power that resides within you.

    Elena also shares her personal journey of working internally and from the inside out. She highlights the transformative power of working with a coach for an entire year, focusing on healing, boundaries, self-acceptance, and receiving support. By accepting herself more, Elena was able to effectively lead and serve others, encouraging them to also do their inner work.

    The company's commitment to inclusion and belonging was another key lesson learned in 2023. The C-Suite Collective explored new approaches, engaged in difficult conversations, and emphasized the importance of everyone's right to belong. They prioritized connection over conflict and disagreement, fostering a supportive and inclusive environment.

    Elena also emphasizes the significance of celebrating the journey, not just the end goals. With the guidance of her coach, she practiced daily self-appreciation and joy throughout December. This shift in mindset allowed her to find fulfillment in the process rather than solely focusing on achieving outcomes.

    Looking ahead to 2024, Elena plans to simplify her goals by narrowing them down to just five things. This strategic approach will allow her to fully immerse herself in each goal's journey and ensure their successful realization.

    Finally, Elena expresses deep gratitude for the support she has received from her family, partner, friends, colleagues, clients, and listeners. She wishes everyone a peaceful and restful end to 2023, while also encouraging them to embrace the possibilities that lie ahead in the new year.

    In summary, Elena shares the key lessons that guided her growth and The C-Suite Collective's development in 2023. These include the importance of slowing down, engaging in internal work, promoting inclusion, celebrating the journey, simplifying goals, and expressing gratitude. It has been a year of self-reflection, growth, and building a strong foundation for continued success.

    152. Impulse shopping and retail therapy ft. Al from Two Broke Chicks

    Impulse shopping in an experience we've all had, the feeling of buying something you know you don't really need, but you want it desperately in the moment. Often during this decade we begin earning "adult money" for the first time and that means we can begin spending as a way to emotional regulate. Had a bad day? Buy a new pair of shoes. Been through a breakup? Shopping spree. There are so many ways that companies encourage this behaviour through flash sales and low stock sales, creating a sense of urgency and getting us to spend. So, in today's episode we break down the psychology behind impulse shopping and retail therapy. 

    We are joined by Alex from the hit podcast, Two Broke Chicks, to provide us with the dos and don'ts of shopping and overspending in our 20s, breaking down the emotions behind buyers remorse, and how to be wiser with your money during this decade.

    145. The psychology of pretty privilege and beauty standards

    Attractiveness and beauty is something we all inevitably find ourselves considering.

Our obsession with beauty is psychological and deeply rooted in our biology and evolution as a species. In today's episode we break down the existence of pretty privilege and beauty standards in our 20s and how they are impacting our mental wellbeing, sense of self worth and even our financial decisions.

    Living Once Twice Ep 73 - Time to Drop the Mask (Season 7 Finale)

    Living Once Twice Ep 73  - Time to Drop the Mask (Season 7 Finale)

    “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” ~E.E Cummings

    In this season finale episode we’ll reflect on this season’s guests and discuss the importance of embracing the “real you” the person behind the mask.  Masking refers to hiding your “Authentic Self” behind an external identity in an effort to gain greater acceptance. 

    While it can be a struggle to embrace the true person, personality, and emotions underneath the masks we all wear, the gain of greater inner peace, freedom, love, and joy is worth the journey.
