How to stop feeling like shit

Welcome to the latest episode of The Simply Smart Business Show. In this show, I’m talking to author, certified life coach, mentor to high-achieving women, Andrea Owen about her new book, How to Stop Feeling Like Shit: 14 Habits that are Holding You Back from Happiness, because it’s JUST SO GOOD.

Listen to this episode here:

I just have to start by sharing a few of the chapter titles, because they’re just brilliant:

  • Being An Arsehole to Yourself: Learn to Manage Your Inner Critic.
  • Compare and Despair: The Never-Ending Mind Fuck.
  • The Demolition Darby of Your Life: Self Sabotage.
  • Feeling Like a Fraud: The Imposter Complex
  • Perfectionism Prison: Self Destruction at its Finest

Absolute gold dust. I know that these alone will resonate with so many people.

Key takeaways from this episode:

  • The goal is to get women to do the work. If something strikes a chord with them and makes them feel really uncomfortable, they’ll become more conscious of the problem and work on it.
  • Not every person out there wants to be an outspoken activist, but there will still be things that you want to do, whether that’s setting better boundaries, having hard conversations or just having more compassion for yourself.
  • Don’t let shame run your life. Stop trying to engineer your life to look a certain way.
  • Not feeling good enough… it’s universal. But there are ways to fix that.
  • In the book there are big tools and little tools – both will have a massive impact.
  • Look at the next level of your business and think about what you’re actually afraid of. Fear of failure is something that gets thrown around a lot, but what about the fear of success?
