Have you ever thought to yourself, “they don’t get me”? Listen, if you’re a high-achieving black woman, you’re probably talking about some things that some people don’t get.

Here is the thing, secretly we want them to get us. This is a primal instinct to want to feel like we are understood and we belong. So when we’re different, and people start making reference to it. There’s this discomfort. And that’s what I want to talk about.

As we recognize and honor that desire within ourselves to create our epic shit, not everyone will get us. And that is okay. What we tend to do in response to this is to think that we are wrong or go on a mission to prove to them that we are right. By doing this, we’re using precious resources of our brain, trying to solve for people to get us. You are wasting the energy that is needed to actually solve the problem of us creating our epic shit.

Here is what you should do instead. Listen in to learn more.

And for the month of May 2022, I am offering an opportunity for some FREE coaching. We’re gonna call it the melanin hour. It’s a safe place where you can talk about everything high-achieving, life, business, work, etc. To sign up for one of the two open coaching calls visit https://www.brigjohnson.com/coaching

Episode 89 – Owning our Freedom!

Episode 89 – Owning our Freedom!

How often do we push something to the side when we can’t decide on what to do or what we want, simply because we don’t want to own our decisions?

Episode 88 – The Ultimate Peace for the High Achieving Black Woman

Today we are discussing one of the most common topics that my clients present to me during our coaching session. It comes in different variations but what it boils down to is that as high-achieving women we want to do more to reach a level of peace but that level is not attainable because as soon as we think we’ve reached the level, there is yet another mountain that we need to climb.

Episode 83 – What you DO you GLUE

Newton’s first law of motion says, a body at rest will remain at rest and a body in motion will remain in motion unless it is acted upon by an external force.
