Welcome to Episode 119 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast we talk with coach, author and corporate speaker Lillian Ogbogoh who has helped many women master self-confidence, specifically by eliminating the seven habits that rob them of power. Lillian believes that each of us can be the person who holds ourselves back the most — before someone else can hold us back. “You have to learn to talk about you like you would your best friend,” she explains, noting that women have been taught we’re not supposed to brag. “If you are not celebrating you, who would?” Lillian asks.

Lillian is passionate about women stepping up to their power and “showing up.” She shares with us her own story of overcoming her fear of speaking in public and how NLP — neuro-linguistic programming — helped her overcome this fear and become a certified NLP practitioner herself. Her message will resonate with women who want to move up but fear that they’re just not good enough as well as anyone who needs additional motivation to build their legacy.

So if you want to know:

  • Why you need to talk about failure — not just about success
  • How fear can rob you of being rational and keep you “stuck”
  • How trying to be “Wonder Woman” prevents you from learning from others
  • The importance of having a “bounce-back ability”
  • Why you need a life team — and who should be on it
