70: Ego Tricks and Being Brave with Jena Rodriguez

Hello! I am not going to lie, I am extra excited today, one because I’ve had way too much coffee and two, I have a dear friend of mine, Jena Rodriguez with me.

She’s kicking ass in business and she’s just a soul sister kind of person. And during this mind-bending conversation we talk about ego, what it is, and some very amazing insights about EGO TRICKS. Especially now in the time of Covid.

And in general, for simplistic purposes, ego is that “protect yourself” instinct, that reptilian part of us that is here to keep us alive. And that is turned on at unprecedented levels right now. We need to have that protection otherwise we would be aimlessly walking around this earth getting hit by buses.

And this is getting pushed to the max right now and there are certain “ego tricks” that may prevent us from being triggered and becoming the BABY IN THE BACK SEAT. Listen in as we unpack this important concept.

Jena and I also dive deep into BEING BRAVE and she reveals her bravery levels, including being brave by survival, by choice, and ultimately BRAVE BY PURPOSE.

I believe wholeheartedly that unless bravery is coming from our purpose, people can read through it in a hot minute.

When I say brave by purpose, it means that when we are looking through the lens of our choices and our decisions and our actions and our thinking and our beliefs it comes from within… This is not happening to us, it is happening for us.

Jena says she hears people describe their fears and their concerns and their challenges as, “I have to do this and I have to do that and now we have to stay in and we have to do that…”

Here’s the thing. If you want an immediate transformation, change that to “I get to.” Just reframe that in nanoseconds and only because as soon as you say “I get to,” you just gained so much more personal power. You became that person that can self-lead and therefore lead your family, children, and whoever else is right around you, let alone online.

Listen to this episode and gain yourself some personal power, we could all use a little now, and in the future. I feel like all of this is happening for a reason. I feel like this is the time to start having these incredibly rich, emotionally intelligent conversations.

And I just thank you so, so, so much for being a part of this with me.
