Are you the truest, most authentic version of yourself? As a young woman, I envisioned helping people to live better, healthier lives. This altruistic ideal was the reason I entered the healthcare industry. It didn’t take long to realize the healthcare industry was more accurately a system of “disease care” not health care. Consequently, first as a nurse and then a doctor, most of my career was spent treating the symptoms of disease not inspiring patients to change for the better. My career path wasn’t in alignment with my truest, most authentic self – the person I’d always imagined. Concurrently, my own struggles with weight and threat of disease directly conflicted with my personal ideals and authentic self. Life coaching was the catalyst that helped me recognize this nagging inner voice driving me to change. While this inner work is hard, I’ve learned to live in alignment with my truest, most authentic self. In this podcast, I share inspiration from the Tao Te Ching, an ancient Chinese text discussed in the book “Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life” by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. This incredibly moving book provides inspiration to be the most authentic version of yourself. During my podcast, I share a verse that spoke to me and echoes the ideals that life coaching helped me to realize and fulfill.
