I have an incredible episode planned for you today.
I’ve invited my good friend Shannon Schultz-Wooten back on the show. She gets a trophy for having the most number of appearances on the podcast.
Shannon is a Life Coach & writer. Specifically, she is is a mindset coach for visionary entrepreneurs ready to trail blaze a path to wealth & intimacy. She is a rebellious, creative junkie, who believes that life can be whatever we want it to be as long as we have the sass, class, & willingness to create it. She is also the author of Infertility Sucks, You Don't coming on on December 24th. Mark your calendar.
Lately I was really noticing that so many of you get stuck in this loop of "if I can just get pregnant, my life will be so much better;"" if I do these few things, then I’ll get pregnant;" "Please god, diving power or universe, if I do this, can I please have a baby."
This is what Shannon calls bargaining and it never works to bring us happiness or the results that we’re looking for.
Don’t get me wrong, the right strategy does matter, I talk a lot about nutrition, lifestyle, strategies around ovulation and implantation. And If you don’t have the right strategy you’re going to be spinning your wheels.
But strategy aside, if you’re not in the right frame of mind, it can hold you back because as humans, we’re really good at getting inside our own heads.
We’re really good at telling ourselves that we’re not enough, we’re not worthy, we’re not deserving. And then these thoughts spiral out of control and you end up sabotaging your own efforts.
And not only that, we become really good at pointing fingers and playing the blame games. Life sucks, life is not fair, blaming our bodies for failing, blaming our husbands for not having super sperm, blaming other people for their happiness, how dare this person invites me to a baby shower knowing what I’m going through.
I can go on and on about all the pearls of wisdom that Shannon shared but I don’t want to spoil it for you. I think you need to have some context around them otherwise they’re just quotes on paper.
