In this episode

This week on Journey to June I had the pleasure of having my dear friend Christi Nix Bloomer join us. I met Christi at a weekend coaching and marketing seminar in Dallas 4 years ago. Her energy and way of being struck me. We connected right away and have kept in touch ever since supporting one another’s journeys as business owners, coaches, and mothers.

Christi and I are unique individuals, who are similar in a lot of ways. Maybe that’s why, when she and I connect every month, it’s difficult to tell one conversation from another. But thanks to Journey to June, I managed to sit down with my good friend, and have a discussion that taught me so many memorable lessons – some that I needed to remember, and some that I never knew about.

1. Knowing what to do isn’t the most important thing; you need to also dig deeper to find out WHY you haven’t done that so far. Digging deeper – this is such an integral part of anyone’s journey. You need to dig deeper and do the inner work in order to make progress. If we keep moving without doing the inner work, the obstacles will keep resurfacing. And a big part of that inner work is finding out what was stopping us from doing what we needed to do.

2. People can give you the tools, but you still have to do the work. You can have all the answers but you still need to take action. This is something I have often talked about when I am describing different types of Soulstigators. An Awakening Soulstigator is “waking up” to the answers and learning about what they could do to change their status quo. But an Ascending Soulstigator is someone who does something about it. This is why I try to explain during my programs that I am not here to give you the answers. I am just here to give you the tools you need to do the inner work, and hold space for you while you do that. I don’t have all the answers; you already have the answers within. I’m just here to help you find them.

3. Take some time to do the most “UN-YOU THING” you could do. Making yourself uncomfortable to stretch your edge. Clients often don’t even know why they are joining one of my programs; they just know that they want more and want to be more. And that’s all that matters. They don’t know what they are capable of. That is why it is important to make yourself uncomfortable. Getting yourself uncomfortable is sometimes the first step you need to take if you want to learn more about yourself, and doing the inner work.

4. Habits that we have developed based on conditioning makes us feel safe. And you need to do the inner work to break those habits. This once again circles back to the importance of doing the inner work, understanding what you are capable of doing, what you
should do, what was stopping you from doing it, and how to not fall back into the same old cycle. As Christi and I talked about, a lot of our habits are developed because they make us feel safe. But doing what we are conditioned to do often makes us feel stuck, because we are constantly going through the motions – doing things we’ve always been doing. This circles back to my point about making yourself uncomfortable. To get where you’ve never been before, you need to do things you’ve never done before.

5. A leader doesn’t have to know it all. Sometimes a leader just needs to know what questions to ask. This is an important takeaway, not just for leaders, but just as a human. We need to give ourselves grace for sometimes not knowing. The first step to self-awareness is acknowledging that unawareness. Once you acknowledge it, you can move forward in your journey to find the answers. And those answers always come to you when you do the inner work.
