The Secret to Rising Up When Life Keeps Knocking You Down

95: Deep Dive Series Part 1: The Myth of Having It All

I’m starting a new deep dive series in this episode of Couch Time. Part 1 of this series is all about the number one thing that I hear from people that keeps them up at night – how to find the rhythm between work and personal life.

Do you struggle to find that rhythm?

It may sound like a silly question because most of us struggle with this. But what if it didn’t have to be that way?

We have to let go of the myth of having it all. There’s a dangerous allure with the idea of having it all, and I’m diving into it today and giving you the steps to finding the rhythm of your life.

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • [2:02] – This is when I realized I had to make a change and escape survival mode
  • 6: 14 – There is a dangerous allure to having it all. Here’s why
  • 7: 07 – What you need to know about the social media mirage
  • [9:46] – This is how cognitive dissonance can send you into an identity crisis
  • 11: 10 – Let’s have a reality check
  • [11:45] – It’s time to define success on your own terms
  • [15:05] – Are you investing or squandering your time?
  • [16:41] – How to find the non-negotiables in your life and set boundaries

I hope this series helps you find the rhythm in your life. Life is not a destination with only one rhythm. It’s about your journey. It’s about making conscious choices every day that align with your values and priorities. And remember, you don’t have to do it alone! We’re here to support you every step of the way.
