#17 Lose Your Inner Mean Girl


Today, my guest Jenny McAlaine and I talk about that inner mean girl. You know, that little voice that tells you that you are not enough? It’s time to give ourselves more self-love and control our innermost thoughts.

Today’s Guest

Today’s guest is a former teacher and school principal and is now a life coach for young women. Through her work, she provides support & empowerment for them not just to cope, but to thrive. I am so excited to have Jenny McAlaine as our guest on episode #17 today, where we dive into one of her favorite topics, how to stop trash-talking yourself.

Key takeaways from this episode:

  • The thoughts that we are thinking are often what is making us feel stuck or overwhelmed.
  • Get rid of that inner mean girl. You know, that little inner voice that tells you that you are not enough. It holds you back from the life you want. 
  • Try this activity: List out 100 things for ME to love about ME. Start with 10 per day and take the time to celebrate yourself. 
  • We are socially conditioned to look externally when trying to figure out what’s wrong. It’s hard to grow with this mindset.
  • Want to start with a coach? The only requirement for success is to be ready to take action towards evolving into the best version of yourself. 
  • Go ahead. Feel your negative emotions. You can’t get through to the other side without that step.
