We often don't realize this, but we have a bully inside our heads.
It's important to pay attention to how we're telling ourselves stories, what those stories actually mean, and whether they're valid.
A quick example: If I tell myself that someone hates me because I'm wearing scrubs, then we're going to have tension because this is the story that I've told myself, regardless of whether it's true.
Mindset really comes down to the story we are telling ourselves more than anything else.
And a lot of times, the stories that we believe came from what we learned when we were children.
For me, it's the memory of my mother saying that my uncles were rich because they were doctors. At that moment, my little five-year-old brain said, "I have to be a doctor or I won't be able to make money."
That decision and belief served me.
My subconscious mind took me from being a music major, to taking one class in Trigonometry and high scoring that class, to going into science to one of the most difficult colleges in the country called, Harvey Mudd, to medical school.
We are being programmed from such a young age, and if we don't pay attention to how we're speaking to ourselves and what beliefs are driving our current actions...
We get stuck in a box.
Our beliefs create our future.
And we need to step out of the box to create a life we love.

About Our Guest
Jill Romig is passionate about helping women make peace with their past, step into their own, and become more comfortable and confident in their skin through her Living Boldly coaching program. At 53, she finally figured a few things out and is excited to share with women struggling with aging, fitness, nutrition, intimacy, and fashion. Despite being an accomplished CPA and a fitness instructor for 25 years, she struggled for many years over her weight, self-image, self-worth, and self-esteem.
She made a shift in her mid-40s as she immersed herself into self-help and learned about the law of attraction, vibrations, source energy, and positive affirmations to become the best version of herself. All of what she has learned she then applied to her coaching program, Living Boldly.
