Who Benefits From Your Doubts? | #43


The Belief: We must strive for perfection for our own self growth, so we burn out from trying to be and do everything that is expected of us. The Reality: Billionaires and industries profit off your doubts, fears, and insecurities and you can STOP giving in to their messaging and manipulations. It is an act of resistance to be your amazing self regardless of what other people think is normal or appropriate. In this episode we’re tackling what it means to perform perfection and presentation in all aspects of life — home, work, even the grocery store. 

This episode has a very special guest, my friend Sarah, who shares her story of anxiety and panic in the face of going back to the office. Not because of mask protocols or work stress, but because of her belief that she would need to spend hundreds of dollars on looking “professional” again (until she realized she didn’t). 

Check out Jodi-Ann Burey’s TEDx Talk, “The myth of bringing your full, authentic self to work” here: https://www.ted.com/talks/jodi_ann_burey_the_myth_of_bringing_your_full_authentic_self_to_work/
