Hey Ass-kickers!

Welcome to episode 85 of the Your Kick-Ass Life podcast. Returning veteran of the show, my best friend and yours, Amy E. Smith is here to talk about the all-important art of standing up for yourself without being a dick!

If you haven’t heard Amy before or have forgotten her background she is a certified confidence coach, podcaster, renowned speaker, and personal empowerment expert. Through all of her endeavors she helps people find their voice using her particular brand of wit, wisdom and irreverence.
On today’s episode we delve into how to listen to the stories being told by your inner critic  (or as Amy calls it, your inner sh*t talker), what unwanted identities are, why all of us have them and what to do about it.

 You’ll Also Hear:

  • What are the two fallacies people buy into when standing up for themselves?
  • There is a scientific reason you care about belonging: what is it?
  • What is the only thing you can control in a given scenario?
  • What keeps us trapped in people-pleasing mode?
  • What is power and what can Madonna teach us about it?
  • How can you change a concrete belief? Amy explains.
  • The connection between standing up for yourself and your relationship with your inner critic.
  • And much more!

Amy sheds light on the difference between intention and reception, why reception is where you should focus your efforts and how to do so. Plus, I share the work that has changed my life. Tune in to hear that and more on episode 85 of The Your Kick-Ass Life Podcast.
