Feeling Stuck? This Episode is For You!
“I don’t know what to do, Mark!”
If I had a nickel for every DM I’ve gotten with those words…. Well, I’d have a lot of nickels. It feels to me like being stuck in a particular area of life is something we all experience at some point — or perhaps at many times throughout our lives.
How do I move through this? Should I stay or should I go? Should I leave my job and start the business? Is this friendship serving me? Why can’t I stop this behaviour/pattern or start this new one?! The list goes on! The good news? There’s a reason we get stuck, and getting unstuck is totally possible. Enter this week’s podcast guest, Britt Frank!
“No one is coming to save you, and that’s good news. You are now empowered to own your life.” - Britt Frank

Why we get stuck in certain patterns, behaviours and ways of being
How to get unstuck through what Britt calls “micro-yesses”
The power of waking up to and embodying conscious choice
Accepting the truth of your past to change your present
