Do what you want to do

The real growth that came from this was realizing that yes, I can, but just because I can doesn’t mean I have to keep doing it. (Colleen Conlon)

Just because you can doesn’t mean that you have to.

You can choose to conduct your life as you please, and you don’t have to do it in ways that benefit others or make you appear a certain way.

Celebrate your achievements

Don’t let your motivation be fueled by proving someone right – or wrong!

You can celebrate your achievements and know that they have value, despite other people taunting or teasing you to push harder or to do more.

In receiving those comments, I needed to give myself grace to realize that I already did what I set out to accomplish, and I don’t need to make my whole life about continuing to keep a title or getting it back. (Colleen Conlon)

Ask for help

Even though your success comes from you, your efforts, and your perseverance, you must and should ask for help when it is needed.

No person is an island, and success is not more genuine or well-earned if you never asked for assistance.

Everything has happened the way it has because I accepted help, and then I started asking for more of it, instead of closing myself off from other people. (Colleen Conlon)

There is power and grace in asking people for help, so do not let that stop you. Even Guinness World Record holders need help, and ask for it!

Meet Veronica Cisneros

Veronica Cisneros | Empowered And Unapologetic PodcastI’m a licensed therapist and women walk into my office every day stressed and disconnected. As a mom of three daughters, I want my girls to know who they are and feel confident about their future. I can’t think of a better way to help other women than by demonstrating an empowered and unapologetic life.

So I started  Empowered and Unapologetic to be a safe space for women to be vulnerable and change their lives for the better before she ever needs to see a therapist.
