I want to share with you a topic that’s been on my mind a lot over the last few weeks: mental health.
For context, most people are currently staying home, social distancing. And many cities are mandating mandatory face covering for the time being.
I’ve been pretty much inside full-time for the last 8 weeks – and it’s crazy to think 2 months has already passed. Whether you are used to working from home or not, everyone has had to make adjustments.
It’s one thing to have calculated risks in your business, it’s another to experience change at this scale. We are in a time of universal, global change, whether it’s changes to your marketing, your offerings, your physical workspace, your workout routine, your diet, your family dynamic, your social life – all of the above and more. And on top of that, everyone reacts differently so you might be seeing all sorts of different responses and reactions from the people you know.
There is no standard way to feel right now and it’s had me thinking a lot about how to stay mentally healthy during this time and also how to increase resilience in the face of unpleasant emotions.
When it comes to your mental well-being, I want to make sure you hear advice from an expert who is qualified to be giving it.
Dr. Joan Rosenberg is a best-selling author, speaker, and educator with decades of experience as a licensed psychologist specializing in the subject of how to develop confidence. And not only that, but how to handle unpleasant feelings. Her book, 90 Seconds to a Life You Love was my favorite of 2019 and I’ve been revisiting it now because it is dedicated to the topics of how to work through difficult and unpleasant feelings to allow you to create confidence and the outcomes you want.
Dr. Rosenberg also taught a LIVE training on Developing Unshakeable Confidence for Entrepreneurs followed by a Q&A in the Beyond Influential Insiders Membership. If you want to watch the Replay, check out the Insiders right here.
For this week’s episode, I want to revisit Dr’s Rosenberg’s interview on How to Build Lasting Confidence and Create a Life You Love because it is definitely worth a re-listen today.
From the Original Episode:
If I could recommend one episode of Beyond Influential that could change your life – it’s this one.
Mindset and personal development themes come up a lot in my content and teaching. Ultimately, my mission is to help you create a life you love through leveraging what’s unique about you and the online space.
What most people don’t realize is that personal branding is a mental game more than anything else.
Which is why I’m so excited to introduce you to this week’s guest, Dr. Joan Rosenberg.
My brother, Jordan, who is currently finishing up his doctorate in psychology, is not someone who gets easily excited about things – so when he told me I needed to know about Dr. Rosenberg, read her book, and interview her… I listened. And he was right.
Dr. Joan Rosenberg is a bestselling author, speaker, and educator with decades of experience as a licensed psychologist specializing in personal development, particularly the topic of confidence and how to develop it. She has dedicated her entire career to giving you the emotional and mental tools you need to make sure you are able to move through any issues you might face and live an authentic life you love.
To say that she is qualified on the themes we cover in this week’s episode of Beyond Influential would be a gross understatement. We cover a lot of important topics, including why people tend to avoid unpleasant or uncomfortable emotions (and why this is detrimental), ending the comparison game, learning to accept compliments, good habits for starting and ending your day, the basis of intuition, how to help children develop healthy ways of dealing with strong emotions, and so much more. This episode is really jam-packed with actionable take-aways. So don’t miss out on a chance to take in tips that can improve your life today!
