#082 - What if your 'imposter syndrome' is correct?

Ever feel like a fraud despite your accomplishments? That nagging voice whispering "you're not good enough". What if that discomfort isn't a sign you're a 'fraud', but a nudge in the right direction? We often slap the "imposter" label on any flicker of unease, but sometimes it's a learning curve, not a character flaw.In this episode, I'm reflecting on a change I made in my business and a full-blown imposter alert went off in my head! But upon reflection, the truth smacked me upside down: it was a skills gap, not a mindset issue.Join me as we explore the idea that discomfort might be your guide, not your enemy. We'll delve into intellectual humility, the importance of honest self-assessment, and how to ditch the over-labelling that keeps you stuck. Tune in and discover how to transform that discomfort into growth!P.S.

#079 - Releasing cult-like thinking & rigid identities - w/ Mark Vicente

Get ready for an engaging conversation as I sit down with my dear friend, Mark Vicente. Many of you might recognise him as the whistle-blower for the cult NXIVM, but there's so much more to him than that. Mark is not just a public figure; he's an author, a speaker, and the cinematographer behind the iconic film Sarafina!Together, we explore the intense demands placed upon us by social media, our battles with how the public sees us, and being honest in our self-expression. Mark shares with us his experience of having a cult-like following, and we examine how historical patterns of coercion and censorship are repeating in our modern society.If you're ready to explore the nuances of authenticity, the role of vulnerability in connection, and the importance of critical thinking in personal growth, tune in to this episode.Connect with Mark:Mark Vicente is an author, speaker, and filmmaker who played a key role in the creation of the sleeper hit "What The Bleep Do We Know?!” Born in Johannesburg - South Africa in 1965, he discovered his passion for cinematography early and made his mark as a Director of Photography in Hollywood with films like “SARAFINA” and “FATHERHOOD.”Mark transitioned to directing with a focus on challenging and thought-provoking themes. His work includes “Encender el Corazon,” a film addressing Mexico's kidnapping crisis.

#076 - Dark side of dating apps, heartbreak, raw attachment style truths - w/ Rebecca Archer

I have my thoughts about what it means to love and be loved in the modern world. What's the real cost of swiping right? Is there truth to attachment styles or has it become a (Western) collective obsession? Is the dating scene really as demotivating and disturbing as people say?In this special episode, I'm joined by someone I've wanted to speak to for a while; the ever-insightful Rebecca Archer. Rebecca, a poet whose words bleed raw emotion, shares her battlefield stories from the front lines of dating apps. She talks about the art of setting boundaries, the seismic shifts caused by heartbreak, and how she channels her experiences into her poetry. Listen in and hear how we don't shy away from the gritty realities of "situation ships" and the relentless pursuit of a connection that's not just skin deep. RESOURCES MENTIONED:Pre-order my book, The Third Perspective: Brave Expression in The Age of IntoleranceConnect with Rebecca:Rebecca Archer (Instagram @wandering_in_heels), recently published her first poetry book, Heartbreak, which explores themes in modern day dating. The book documents a decade of being single and is themed around the seven deadly sins of the human heart, such as lust and envy.Taking some artistic licence,  Rebecca repositioned the sin of “pride” in a positive way in the final chapter of the book, interpreting it as the “dignity” she eventually found. By exploring negative romantic experiences and dysfunctional relationship-forming patterns, Rebecca has been able to approach the search for love with more accountability and self-respect.Rebecca says, " I do hope that by candidly sharing my experiences of modern dating, I will help others feel less lost and alone. I firmly believe that we attract the love we believe we deserve. For years, I thought I only deserved “scraps”, and so that is what I settled for. Once I learnt to stop being turned on by romantic ambiguity, and started to see stability and security as sexy, everything changed. Never forget: you are worthy of love."You can follow Rebecca Archer on Instagram: @wandering_in_heelsHeartbreak is available to buy now at: wordsbyrebeccaarcher.comHeartbreak was written by Rebecca Archer.

#075 - Let people f*cking help you!

Do you keep avoiding help from others? I'm guilty as charged. In this episode, I'm exploring the obstacles of seeking help and the profound challenge of accepting it. I've battled with this myself, particularly when I was neck-deep in writing my book. I had this mind-blowing psychedelic trip, coupled with deep meditation, and it hit me like a ton of bricks—the lesson of opening up, of not letting this hyper-independence trap me in a "golden cage." It's about the give-and-take, the law of reciprocity, and smashing through the fear of being vulnerable. So hit play and let's break down those barriers of allowing people to help together.RESOURCES MENTIONED:Pre-order my book, The Third Perspective: Brave Expression in The Age of IntoleranceIf you found this valuable - be sure to follow, RATE, subscribe, leave a review on Apple Podcasts, and share this podcast with your pals, family, and community - let's not withhold transformation from each other.⁣⁣⁣⁣You can also connect with me directly over on Instagram, I'd love to continue the conversation with you - @africabrooke or you can email me at [email protected] with the subject line 'Beyond the Self'.

#072 - It’s time to manage who has access to you

I am so, so deeply grateful for everybody who has pre-ordered my book, The Third Perspective: Brave Expression in The Age of Intolerance. Your support means so much to me! In this episode, I'm discussing something that over the past 8 years, I've grappled with and have refined as time has gone by - this notion of managing who has access to you. Be it friends, romantic partners, family, clients, audience, colleagues, even internet strangers…I covered it all! It’s easy to think that when I speak of ‘access’ I’m defaulting into talking about the physical, but  we're transcending the physical and exploring the realms of emotional, mental, and spiritual accessibility. By becoming intentional gatekeepers of our personal space, I want us to know that we can unlock pathways to greater peace, happiness, and personal evolution.

#063 - The fear of being left behind

Lately, I've been thinking about the labels society places on us. You might know me as a content creator or influencer, but that's just scratching the surface. My work delves deep, involving research and mentorship. I'm all about exploring self-sabotage and self-censorship and understanding the human experience. For fellow creatives and entrepreneurs, here's a friendly tip: Ditch the "content" label. Take breaks from social media, hone your craft, and live your ideas. Don't rush or mimic others without understanding and don't let algorithms or others' expectations dictate your path.Remember, your worth is not defined by societal labels or external validation, but by your authenticity and commitment to your craft.If you found this valuable - be sure to follow, RATE, subscribe, leave a review on Apple Podcasts, and share this podcast with your pals, family, and community - let's not withhold transformation from each other.⁣⁣⁣⁣You can also connect with me directly over on Instagram, I'd love to continue the conversation with you - @africabrooke or you can email me at [email protected] with subject line 'Beyond the Self'.

#062 - Tough lessons: owning your toxicity, using your voice confidently, the truth about success

Prepare yourself for a thought-provoking exploration of three profound life lessons that shaped my path. Last year Steven Bartlett created a Self Development Coaching project, and I was one of the selected coaches.I led the segment on mental health and different elements of spirituality, but through the lens of very grounded, realistic, sustainable self-improvement. I recently found many of the notes and lessons I did within that program. There were around 12 lessons, so today I'm sharing three of my favourite ones.I share what sparked my path to becoming a confident speaker, why feeling victimised is stopping you from moving forward and how you view success (and not just in the entrepreneurial sense). So tune into this episode and hear me share these lessons, see how some of them have changed for me along the way, and let's create a conversation. Resources Mentioned:The Diary by Steven Bartlett: https://thediary.com/pages/the-diaryBook: Say What You Mean by Jay Oren SoferCourage over Conformity Course - This two-day course is a masterclass in communication.

#061 - Confession: I've been writing timidly

Ever wondered what it feels like to get feedback that challenges you to truly be yourself? Well, I've had that experience recently when I received feedback on the first draft of my book. My editors were quick to point out that I was holding back in my writing. Sure, it stung a bit, but I've come to realise the value of their honesty. Let's be real, sharing openly about this is important.As a writer, I've come to understand the power of seeking feedback. Although I'll admit, at first, it felt like a blow, I've come to embrace feedback as a chance for my personal growth. Striking that balance between staying true to myself and considering outside perspectives is a journey I'm fully engaged in.I also share how hitting the milestone of turning 31 has sparked some deep reflections for me. This journey towards sobriety and self-improvement has been a wild ride. Not all smooth sailing, for sure, but each experience has played a part in shaping the person I am today.Resources Mentioned:Courage over Conformity Course - This two-day course is a masterclass in communication.

#055: Why are you hiding in plain sight?

This question has been on my mind lately as I reflect on the concept of visibility and authenticity. I've noticed that even those who are already famous or in the public eye can struggle with truly being seen. It's as if there's a disconnect between external recognition and internal discomfort.

In November, I went on Instagram Live to pose this thought provoking question to my community:Do your public opinions match your private (and most honest) views?Today I'm sharing that live with you so you can hear my views on this question and how different people answer it. Are you being effective with how you communicate or not? Are you willing to die on the hill for every opinion you give? Or are you staying silent in the public eye and showcasing your PR opinion? These are just some of the questions I ask you throughout this episode. I also explore how timing, delivery, tone, and body language play a huge role in how our opinions come across to others. It's easy to have a brave voice online, but when it comes to being confident in person, we need to pay attention to these elements to see how we're coming off to people.So if you're curious about this topic and want to hear different people's answers to this question, then press play!If you found this valuable - be sure to follow, RATE, subscribe, leave a review on Apple Podcasts, and share this podcast with your pals, family, and community - let's not withhold transformation from each other.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣You can also connect with me directly over on Instagram, I'd love to continue the conversation with you - @africabrooke or you can email me at [email protected] with subject line 'Beyond the Self'.

In this episode (originally recorded LIVE on IG), I covered: are you a more passive-aggressive communicator than you think?, why ASSERTIVE COMMUNICATORS are needed now more than ever, why communication is a missing piece in the cancel culture conversation, why  labelling everything as self-censorship isn’t helpful, how to know when you’re self-censoring vs using your social filter (good thing)……why risking peoples perception of you has to become non-negotiable, what happens when people start to behave exactly like those they claim to oppose……why a solutions focused approach to our collective disconnect is the way forward, why sharing online shouldn’t be the main point of undoing self-censorship, the gifts of being misunderstood…& SO MUCH MORE.Books mentioned:Non-violent communication by Marshall RosenbergSay what you mean by Oren SoferIf you found this valuable - be sure to follow, RATE, subscribe, leave a review on Apple Podcasts, and share this podcast with your pals, family, and community - let's not withhold transformation from each other.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣You can also connect with me directly over on Instagram, I'd love to continue the conversation with you - @africabrooke or you can email me at [email protected] with subject line 'Beyond the Self'.

#021 - Are other people entitled to decide how you use your voice?

"Those who have accepted self-censorship as a part of themselves tend to work overtime to justify the punishment of those who choose to express themselves openly, and without fear.Often their outrage and calls for punishment won’t be based on the contents of what that person is saying, but the fury will be because that person is even DARING to say anything at all." - Africa BrookeI appreciate your time and attention.
