5 Ways To Live UnLeashed

Too many women give up - beaten down, decide it’s easier to wait until life settles, opportunities magically appear, or believe their time has passed, altogether...too willing to pass the baton on to our younger counterparts.

But why is that? Aren't we in our prime? Don't we have years of experience under our proverbial belts? Shouldn't our wisdom give us unshakeable confidence?

In our years of supporting women (and knowing ourselves), we have found that the most significant answer boils down to FEAR. Maybe not a rampant fear for our lives, but fears that still paralyze us none-the-less and keep us in holding patterns year after year as life slips away, despite all the experiences and wisdom we've acquired with age.

Unfortunately, this results in our fears restraining us from UnLeashing our true and greatest selves.

These fears can include:

  • FEAR of what others will think about us. Yes, we can still be stuck here after years of life chipping away.

  • FEAR of not having enough. Sometimes, we tend to keep an eye on what others have instead of what is right in front of us.

  • FEAR of being alone. So many of us are starting over after life takes a turn we weren’t expecting.

  • FEAR of our ever-changing bodies. (Menopause, weight gain, health issues that we have never dealt with before.)

  • FEAR of failure of what could happen if we step out of our comfort zone or start something new at our age.

It’s time to get out of our heads.

It's so easy to get stuck in our head, not moving forward, frozen by these fears. Most of the time, it’s easier to default back to what we know and what is “comfortable" while still longing for something better. We've lived long enough to learn many hard lessons but still live with a quiet nagging deep within us that we want something more.

We've come to realize there are at least five things that can help us move past our fears and step into the woman we know exists within us. Maybe you're well on this path, or perhaps it's time to take inventory of where you are and start taking active steps to be that woman you know you can be.

These five ways to UnLeash your best self include:

  1. Unleashing old ways

  2. Unleashing fears

  3. Unleashing confidence

  4. Unleashing friendships

  5. Unleashing our money mindset

1. UnLeashing Old Ways

Do you ever feel like you're trapped in your old ways of thinking about money, your health, work, or life in general, not moving ahead and feeling stuck?

We know that feeling too – old habits are hard to break! But, we were so determined to move past being stuck and make meaningful changes. We wanted to regain control and pave a better way for our second acts in life. It hasn't always been easy, but it certainly has been worth it.

We’re here to say that you don't have to stay stuck in a life that doesn't look and feel like the life you want and deserve. As overused as it sounds, it truly does start by taking that first step. Maybe it's through journaling, working on new habits, creating a new schedule, or working with a professional to help you move forward in this area. Envision for yourself; what kind of life do you see? What does it look like? Not in general words, but specifics. The more detailed, the better! Let this lead your way.
