243: Life as a “Check Minus” – Raechel Anderson Dressler

Imagine being that kid in school who loved to help others, innocently over contributed, and being labeled as disruptive, simply because you wanted to contribute, but instead got told, “You’re not paying attention.”
Before you know it, your life has become a series “Check-minuses,” never being able to get more than an A-, because you were putting too much of your own personality into things. Consciously and unconsciously you start to turn yourself down and created a story whereby in order for you to excel, you needed to tone your authentic self-down and sometime even remove your true self from the equation. And that became your life, until you discovered, “That shit don’t float, and it sure the heck doesn’t make you a happy person.

Fellow coach, mischief maker, and the one person I enjoy a good “snort” with – and we’re not talking about putting stuff up our noses – Raechel Anderson Dressler, joins me today to teach us how to come out of our closets of “check-minusing ourselves out of the equation. And if you’re lucky, there will probably be a few good snorts along the way.
