Do you remember a time when you felt really ‘you’? In flow? Maybe a great sense of boundless energy? The sense that there was something really motivating to wake up for each day in work, love, life? To kick off the new year I invite Lorraine Murphy, author of 3 wonderful books in the past centred around productivity, and now with a new book Step Into You, to discuss this – we talk about alarm bells that things are not going well and you need to pay attention – LOVE Lorraine’s analogy on this, and also talk about some of the tools we can use to bring ourselves back to ourselves – not entirely easy with all the demands that come up in life, often with the busy-ness clouding our own filtering and awareness of when things might not be best for us!
Enjoy the first show of 2022!
Questions I asked Lorraine:
- How do we know we’re not “US” – ie signs we’ve drifted from ourselves or perhaps have never really connected in the first place for cultural/religious/be-good-in-society reasons?
- Can you share a time when you felt really disconnected from yourself?
- What were some pivotal moments/choices that helped you step into YOU again?
- Why is the gap between where women are and where we want to be ‘vast’ in so many cases, as you say in the early part of your book?
- I want to talk about the truth bombs you unleash upfront in the book.
- You then go on to help us all Step into ourselves in expert fashion, and I love that towards the end of the book you discuss strategies for our ‘ME’ to stick – can we talk about resilience fatigue? (and also alignment over balance after that).
About Lorraine Murphy:
