Episode 27: How To Talk To Your 7 y.o. Self

What would life look like if you spoke to yourself in the manner that you would to your seven year old self? Would your self-imposed expectations change? Maybe you wouldn’t be bound to the *same* expectations. Now we realize we can’t go back in time but our 7 year old self is within and we can do a lot of this self talk now and boost out self esteem. If you could speak to your seven year old self is there anything you would say to coach them to help them see life differently or make different decisions? You perhaps would teach growth mindset and to speak kindly, and share all those thoughts of wisdom and how to dampen perception of stress.
