[00:00:02] Welcome to the Energy For Life helping busy women reclaim their energy and power and self-worth. Here is your host Corona Brady.
[00:00:14] Welcome back. Welcome to episode four. So today I want to talk to you about the importance of investing in yourself. I can offer a unique perspective here. This year alone I have spoken to literally hundreds of women hundreds of women who have reached out to me personally to speak to me about their bearnaise stuck in vicious cycles of negativity costs and vicious cycles of limiting beliefs that are holding them back in their life. Hundreds of women who have zero self-care are so disconnected from themselves on their bodies and are feeling so lost. Many of these women are using food alcohol shopping daily to numb. They are really feeling. Maybe you can relate today maybe you can even see yourself in these women. I want you to think of everything you own in your life. All your worldly possessions everything you’ve invested in today. Think about it. Maybe an item of clothing for a moment that you invested a lot of money in. Maybe it was a really expensive pair of jeans – a really good quality pair of jeans or maybe a really nice kind of winter coat that you bought yourself or a really nice good leather handbag that you invested in.
[00:01:44] Think about that item that you invested a lot of money in is not a quality item. Do you still own that item? How long has it lasted you? I’m not sure about you but anytime I invest in anything of great quality where I invest a lot of money that item lasts me years sometimes I might even get a decade out of it are even longer.
[00:02:11] And personally I love investing in things of great quality because I know that it’s not going to break on me. And I know that I’m not going to have to go out quickly and replace us. Now I want you to think of something an item of clothing while we’re on the topic of clothing something that you invested in that was actually quite cheap.
[00:02:29] Let’s say it was a T-shirt or a top. Do you still have that top? What happened. Did you get a lot of your side of it? Was it good quality more than likely. I’m guessing that it probably broke maybe shrunk because you didn’t invest a lot in it. It wasn’t great quality. When we invest cheaply we get cheap results. That goes for your life ladies if you’re always looking for the cheapest option the cheapest way to do things. Guess Wallace Well just like the example of the T-shirt.
[00:03:06] Often when we spend very little money on something that happens. We get cheap results. The hardest part of my work is that I see so many women who are stuck trying to do this alone. They’re exhausted they’re depleted they’re stuck in negativity they’ve got limiting negative beliefs that they’ve been holding a lot of the time since childhood. They’ve got no self-care. They’re feeling really lost and stuck and they’ve been feeling in this way many of the women I’m speaking to have been stuck for a number of years many of them a decade some two decades and some even up to three decades. You see the thing is most people try to go it alone. They try to figure it out by themselves without realizing that there are people in the world who are experts and who will make you commit to making this change for example. It’s kind of like people who struggle right for years trying to go to the gym when if they just forgot I used that extra bit of money they got a personal trainer. They would be forcing themselves to commission and in doing so they would actually be making the change they really desire. I see women every single day that are hunting the Internet finding cheap ways cheap solutions to get to the root of their problems. Unfortunately, we’re living in a time now of information overload. There is information everywhere you can go to Google. You can put what your problem is that you’re dealing with right now in your life and it’s going to give you a whole heap of results back.
[00:04:41] But there’s kind of a bad thing to that because it’s overwhelming. Nobody’s actually talking you truly a proven system that works that gets results. I see women every day trying to do things as cheaply as possible when it comes down to investing in their personal growth. So they’re jumping from as self-development book from one to the other. Again it’s just information. Nobody’s talking you through a proven system that works. Nobody’s holding your hands cheerleading you on. And most importantly nobody is holding you accountable if you are stuck in vicious cycles and you’ve been stuck in that space for a very long time and there’s a lot of things going on at the subconscious level. You’re actually going to need more than information more than a book to actually create the transformation. And I think that’s why there are so many women stuck right now and they’re not getting the results they desire. They read books after books. They’ve got a bookshelf with many many books on them and the books often are just kind of gathering dust or they’ve read a couple of pages of a book and then they gave off because they realize it’s too hard. You know I have personally spent close to 200 times and dollars on mentoring on self development programs on becoming a better person because I realize there are actually people out there in the world that are so much smarter than me at things that I want to learn about ice and things that I want to grow in and I want to learn from them. I want to learn from the best.
[00:06:21] So learning to free yourself from the negativity and the limiting beliefs that might be holding you back on every level or freeing yourself from the fatigue or the disconnection from wood in it’s on trying to do that on your own. It’s quite crazy because no one else you know has managed to do it and you’re just going to be learning a bunch of things that are actually learning how to implement them. This is when we go to the Internet and we find this and that and then we become overwhelmed and then nothing’s happening so we end up just completely giving up. I wouldn’t be I really mean this I wouldn’t be 10 percent of the woman that I am today if I hadn’t. Invest in all the mentoring and the help that I’ve received. What’s more likely is people get scared of making a change and then they go into this really destructive pattern of giving up and thinking What’s the plan. This is way too hard. This is just who I am. I just have to accept this. I just have to push on and push through. This is the life that was given to me. It just doesn’t work for me. This isn’t right for me. I’ve tried that and it didn’t really work. And what happens you just stagnate. You start feeling like you don’t deserve to understand yourself you don’t deserve your own self-love you don’t deserve your own self-care that you should feel guilty and that you don’t deserve to feel that peace you’re desiring and the joy that you’re desiring in your life.
[00:07:55] Investing in proven quality solutions in the end provides a short course tear dreams and your desires and ultimately this saves oceans of your precious time ladies oceans of your precious energy and oceans of your precious money and that additional pain where you’re banging your head against the wall wondering why your wound hasn’t healed from the cheap band-aids you bought when really it needs major surgery. So some food for thought today. How have you invested in your personal growth today? Are you two struggling and trying to go it alone right now. Are you always looking for the cheapest options? What do you think the real reason is that you’re still stuck.
[00:08:44] If this applies to you today then don’t you think it’s time you invest in you don’t you? Don’t you think you’re worthy of it?. I’m Corona Brady. Thank you so much for listening today.
