We all have stories in our heads that get in our way. These stories prevent us from stepping up, from pursuing our dreams, and from feeling empowered to create our lives the way we want to. In order to change our behavior – and hence our lives, we must first change what we are thinking – our mindsets. You must recognize where the conditioning is coming from, and how. And then you must take the steps in order to recondition your mindset. But how do we do that when society (the media, government, and other institutions) seems so hell bent on perpetuating the mindset that, if not, recognized, threatens to keep women disempowered?
In this episode, titled ‘Women, Mindset & the Key to Our Power’, Coach Kathy talks to Dr. Samantha Madhosingh, a psychologist who through her organization Elevate Her, helps people shift their mindset, change their story and become better leaders. Dr Samantha’s work with young girls enlightened her to the understanding that the messages young girls receive follow them into womanhood and impact how they show up. In this interview she will explain how women become conditioned – in childhood and in adulthood, how we need to be conscious of when it is happening, and exactly how it affects us conscious so we can shift our stories and step into our power. Coach Kathy and Samantha also share tips on how they empower their own daughters and parent them in a way that means they know they have a voice.
