How did your childhood experiences shape your relationship to achievement? How do you go after praise, and how do you process praise and applause once you receive it? Do you ever find yourself achieving for achievement’s sake only to find that your accomplishments fail to register or, worse, leave you feeling numb and empty?
On this episode of Package Your Genius, we have therapist Dr. Reisha Moxley (our therapist in residence) back for another special episode in this series on the mindset shifts necessary to claim your biggest dreams. Because as you have probably figured out by now, mindset is everything.
We discuss what comes up for achieving women and minorities; how your worth starts with you. Because when you base your worth off of how others respond to you (applause), you become beholden to their feedback and need it to build your esteem and form your own opinion of yourself.
In this episode we explore:
The gift and curse of high achievement
How the praise you experienced as a child shapes how you process (and perhaps require) praise as an adult
The ball and chain of achievement – how the more you achieve, the more people expect from you
How to reframe praise as a parent to your kids
How to find “peace in the plateaus” between achievements
When goal setting triggers dormant, unresolved issues and old feelings come back up
Why you don’t have to know all of the answers
… and much more
