167: Take The Lead: Chapter 4


Are there any labels in your life that you’re uncomfortable with? If you’re trying to live up to a label that you or someone else has enforced on you, I want you to ask yourself if that label is really serving you. If not, maybe it’s time to let it go. 

In this episode of the Leading Lady podcast, I’m reading Chapter 4 of my book Take The Lead. You can listen to each chapter individually or you can go back to Episode 163 to start from the beginning of the book. As you can tell, in this episode we’re talking a lot about labels, expectations, and judgment. 

It took me a while to figure out how to live as my authentic self and then to really allow myself to. When you walk away from this episode, I want you to know that it’s okay to change your own expectations for your life. Don’t box yourself into the life that your past self wanted. What do you want? 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • How people’s labels and judgments affect us 
  • Learning to live as your authentic self 
  • The impact of imposter syndrome 
  • Deciding who you want to be 
  • Why you need to allow room for change in your expectations for your life 
  • How we rob ourselves of feeling successful 
  • Unlocking your true potential 
  • How to stop putting expectations on others 

Labels will always exist and people will always judge but you know what? Other people’s labels and judgments have nothing to do with you. Let them think what they want. If you’re showing up as your authentic self, you’re winning.
