[Ep. 50] Misguided Motivation and Self-Love with Brad Yates


When I was kid I had a stand off with a much older and taller boy, whom I’d just met at a playground. He bet me that I couldn’t kick as high as him.

There was NO way little Jen was going to be told that she was not as good as someone else, even if they were 1.5X her size.

So I kicked.

Really high.

So high in fact that the force of it pulled my other leg out from under me and I ended up on my @ss. Scraped limbs, bruised ego and all.

As rational adults we don’t really enter into such physical competitions.

But in the mental game?

Gloves are off.

Think of all the lines that float through the back of your mind:

You’ll be lazy if you don’t…

You’ll never be successful unless you…

If I’m not burning the candle at both ends I won’t …

I’ll lose traction if I don’t…

The funny thing is, by motiving ourselves with negativity we end up creating an even bigger load to bear.

Now, not only do we need to achieve something but we need to carry this fear, anger or worry with us at the same time.

So in addition to exerting the energy, creativity, innovation and perseverance you need to bring more success to your business, you also have to expend all this energy worrying about missing out or being lazy or not productive enough or not whatever enough.

Imagine how much further you could fly without having to carry this heavy package of mind chatter on your back?


Today’s guest is here to help you drop that load.

Mr. Brad Yates helps us shift that need to motivate ourselves with negativity and leads us through a tapping exercise that left me wanting to giggle.

I can’t wait to see how light you feel after too!

So warm up your tapping fingers and get ready for some laughter, lightness and a MUCH easier flight with Brad Yates.



When we love ourselves more, we allow more success into our lives.
