by | Sep 6, 2019 | ketoforwomen

Have you ever hit rock bottom in your life? What do you do, and where do you go from there? Deanna Wilcox shares a very important message for you to not only hear but also do something with. So get ready to take action on what you’re about to learn!

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • Deanna’s health journey and what it was like to battle mold illness
  • Some of the symptoms of mold illness that Deanna experienced
  • How a mindset shift starts
  • Why a mindset shift is so hard
  • Uncovering your limiting beliefs
  • Deanna’s mindset journey

Key Takeaways:

  • You have to get to that almost-bottom basement level to understand how powerful your mindset is.
  • Your limiting beliefs can hold you back from claiming your healing.
  • Gratitude is the quickest way to start noticing some changes and getting rid of the negative emotions.
  • You can live a much more vibrant life than you are currently living if you just learn to change your mindset.
  • The smallest step is going to provide you the biggest leap as far as the change that you will see in your life.
  • Even though you do the mindset work and you develop this strong and powerful mindset and you develop this great awareness, it doesn’t mean that hard stuff doesn’t happen anymore. The difference is in the way that we approach them.
  • Staying aware of your limiting beliefs and negative thought patterns every day is very critical.
  • When we live without hope, we are experiencing the very pain that we’re trying to avoid.

Action Steps:

  • Don’t focus on what you don’t have.
  • Start loving your illness.
  • Uncover negative thought patterns and limiting beliefs through journaling, meditation, and practicing gratitude.
  • Be real with yourself.
  • Be open to working with a practitioner when trying to solve your issues.
  • Don’t be a victim, always remain the student. There’s something we can always learn even when it’s hard.
  • Sit with your emotions. Feel all of them, but don’t get stuck in any of them.
  • Start living with more hope.

Deanna said:

“This was the very beginning of one of my mindset shifts is realizing that had I not been through what I’d been through, I don’t know if I ever would have learned what I learned.”

“I am living a far more vibrant life than I ever could have dreamed of because I did deeper work than I ever know that I needed to do.”

Hey there, I'm Shawn!

I’m obsessed with nitro cold brew, 90% dark chocolate, and helping coaches and practitioners build a business they love. With nothing but a passion for helping others and the desire to never have a boss again, I quit the corporate world and built my own million dollar coaching business over the past decade. Now, I help others do the same.
