Episode 102: How to Create Your Comeback Story That is Worthy of an 80's Movie Montage

Feb 09, 2024


I think, especially as women, we grow up with this idea in our head of what our perfect life is supposed to look like. We have a successful career, we have a wonderful spouse and kids…

This is what you’ve always said was supposed to make you happy right? So let me ask you this… if this is what you’ve always dreamed about… are you really happy?

So often when we hear about a comeback story, we think about overcoming this big adversity. But here’s the thing. We are at a place in our lives right now, where that comeback… looks like coming back to a life that isn’t burning the candle at both ends. Coming back to a life where you don’t collapse in a heap of exhaustion at the end of the day. Coming back to a life where you find that happiness again and you get your joy and your sparkle back.

Today I am going to answer the question, how can you create your own comeback story?

The answer is powerful, it involves… an 80’s movie montage…  And I think it’s going to surprise you.

Together, we will unpack:

  • How can stress and inflammation perpetuate a cycle of suffering in our lives?
  • Why is it important to take responsibility for our own health and well-being?
  • The key steps for creating a successful "comeback story" in life.
  • How we shift our mindset and habits to achieve self-love and personal growth.
  • What role do visualization and goal setting play in shaping our future selves?
  • Making peace with our past and taking personal responsibility leading to positive transformation.
