Success is not in your comfort zone and once you accept that it opens up all types of possibilities. Our guest Tamika Newhouse knows all too well about moving outside your comfort zone. In this episode, she shares some powerful truths and aha moments that she has endured during her personal journey from teen mom to CEO.
Limitations are only as strong as you allow them to be. You must be willing to shift your words, your mindset and sometimes your surroundings to be able to achieve success. Tamika can share all about limitations. As we know when someone has a child at any age there are those in the world that look at the mother as now being handicapped. Well, Tamika showed the world that she wouldn’t be limited by anything.
There is also the idea that one must pay close attention to their creative wellness. Our mental health, as a creative, needs to be a priority because of all the people and scenarios we come in contact with. Many creatives find themselves depleted and stressed out due to the everyday wear and tear of being a CEO. That is one of the reasons Tamika created a wellness weekend retreat for creatives in Atlanta.
It takes a lot of mental strength to go on this journey.
How many of you have gone through some form of mental fatigue from your business, your job, relationships or just from life in general?
Ask yourself these questions:
Do you feel depleted at the end of the day?
Are you frustrated or uninterested in your business?
Do you find yourself getting frustrated with people easily?
