Episode 506: Achieving Success Without Sacrificing Yourself | Becca Powers

You shouldn’t have to choose between career, happiness, and good health  – all three should go hand-in-hand. It takes a lot of courage to pull yourself out of a situation that isn’t serving you, but the moment you prioritize your well-being above all else, you will achieve true success.

In this episode, I am joined by Becca Powers, a motivational speaker, executive life coach, and author of the best-selling book Harness Your Inner CEO. Listen to our conversation, where she discusses her journey of valuing her self-worth and well-being while pursuing her passions. She shares her inspiring story of when she realized she was her own EO, as well as what motivated her to pursue entrepreneurship while balancing corporate life.

We also touch on the following: 

  • Taking a step back and reconsidering your career path and your passions
  • Asking “what if” questions that support your well-being and decision-making
  • Evolving while celebrating the achievements of the person you used to be
  • Kundalini yoga – the yoga of self-awareness
  • The inspiration behind the book Harness Your Inner CEO
  • Tips on how you can harness your inner CEO

Thriving Points:

  • What I found was that I ended up finding an alteration in my career path that gave me more freedom and flexibility for my schedule; that I was able to fit things in without one sacrificing the other. They actually complement each other really well. So I was able to write the book, coach clients, build a speaking career, and it actually even accents or helps my current corporate career. – Becca Powers
  • What was most important to me was giving space to let this part of me express itself without sacrificing myself in the process. – Becca Powers
  • Many times in life, we are faced with a decision and we can choose either option, but the main question is “Which one serves me the most?” – Becca Powers
  • I started reframing and saying no so that I could say yes to myself. When you finally admit that things are falling apart and that you don’t have the answers, that’s when the answers can come in. – Becca Powers
  • When you let things go, you actually recognize that you have power. – Nikki Rogers
  • Nothing requires self-sacrifice, and that would be the rising into your power pieces –  to be willing to consider yourself at least as much as you consider others. – Becca Powers
  • Prioritize yourself above all else and then everything else will fall in line. – Nikki Rogers
  • Resistance is one of the things that stop us from fulfilling our dreams. – Becca Powers
