174: Take The Lead: Chapter 11


What have been some of the pivotal moments in your life? In this episode, I want to share some of mine with you. 

Here on the Leading Lady podcast, I’ve been reading one chapter a week from my book, Take The Lead. In this episode, I’m reading Chapter 11: The Pivot. If you’re just joining us, you can go back to Episode 163 to start from the beginning of the book or you can jump in right here and listen to the episodes in any order! 

This chapter is about getting in tune with your emotions. We all respond emotionally to things every day, but sometimes those emotional responses might not look the way we want them to. By getting to the root of what causes your emotional responses, you can have more control over how you show up and respond to people and situations. You can show up as the person you really want to be. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • Navigating your own path through life 
  • How we respond to perceived threats 
  • Connecting with your emotions and identifying the truth behind them
  • Some of the major pivot points of my life 
  • Pausing to remind yourself of your values 
  • How getting to the root of your emotions helps you solve problems 
  • Learning your emotional triggers 

We all have moments in our lives that we wish we had handled differently. If you feel that way about a specific situation in your life, go back and check in with your emotions. How were you feeling? How would you like to have responded? What were your values and how do you want to adjust them moving forward?
