We all want money. Yes, I know money does not buy you happiness, but here's what money does do. Money buys you the freedom to make the choices that make you happy.  In this episode, I want to share five books that I've read that I truly believe are the key to you creating more wealth, more abundance, and more money in your life. Although the books that I am going to recommend might surprise you because they aren’t what you might expect, like books about investing or crypto.

Impostor Syndrome has also been found to be most prevalent with women. For most people, Impostor Syndrome looks like self-doubt, questioning whether what you do is actually good enough. Sometimes it shows itself as perfectionism where we feel like you've got to do everything absolutely perfectly, where we feel like we've got to be better than everybody else for us to matter. It can show up as not wanting to take any responsibility, because if you take on responsibility, you’ll have to do a really good job. Impostor Syndrome can be debilitating and self-sabotaging to our success and self-worth, so in this episode, I share 6 steps to overcome this.

It Is still mind boggling to me that kids go to school, and there isn't a class where they truly learn about money. Yes, there are the mechanics of money – you put your money in a savings account, you save and then that makes interest, or you invest in stocks. That's one part of it.  But there's a step before that so many of us have never been taught, and that step is the fact that money comes from how you think and how you feel about it.  We have been taught that money comes from hard work, that you need to hustle, that money only happens for certain people who are special, or you have to have been born with money. The truth is one of the most common struggles people have with money is that they do not feel that they're worthy to have the money that they want to have.

It's really challenging not to feel overwhelmed, overcome, despondent, and sad with all of the things that are happening in the world.  Oftentimes when things are going so horribly wrong, whether it's in our personal lives, or whether it's in the world at large, we often look to large solutions.  We're looking for world leaders to step in and fix things and go to the United Nations.  We're looking for bosses.  We’re looking for really big things.  For most of my school life, I went to a convent school.

Have you ever been jealous of somebody else's success? Have you ever felt jealous of someone who achieved something that you wanted? I'll put my hand up because, yes, I have felt jealous of other people's success. As good little girls, we were taught that being jealous is a bad thing. I'm a preacher's kid too, and in church we were taught that it is evil to even want something that someone else has. Envy is a bad thing.  You do not want to feel those bad feelings, and yet, all feelings are valid. And so when we say to ourselves, “Don't feel jealous,” we are suppressing our feelings. When we suppress our feelings, bad things happen. When we don't process our feelings and they just stay stuck in our bodies, unprocessed feelings lead to so many issues, including physical manifestations as disease.  And so why do I thin

One of my biggest complaints about my husband is that he is the least romantic person that I know. He's not a Valentine's Day kind of guy.    I'm always telling my husband, “You're not romantic. You don't do anything romantic for me.” But just before Valentine’s Day, he said to me, “I'd really like to do something romantic for you this Valentine's Day. What would you like?”   I did the double blink thing, because I realized in that moment something that I had not ever realized before – I didn’t know what I wanted. All of this time, I've been complaining about how my husband never did anythi

048 | What Your Pain is Telling You (and Why You Need to Listen to Your Body) with Jake Currie

There's a lot of truth to the saying "pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong." In fact, pain is an incredibly important signal from our bodies that something needs our attention.  So, why are we neglecting this signal? Why do we glorify our heightened pain thresholds and make being in pain the norm? Jake Currie, Founder of Mind Body Masters, says that most inexplicable physical pains we’re experiencing often stem from repressed emotions, and that pain is simply our body’s response to being in a prolonged state of distress. He also talks a lot about how stress and trauma can manifest itself on different parts of our body. Join us in this episode, as we go through what our emotions are showing us, and why we need to start LISTENING to our PAIN to heal what ails us. ABOUT OUR GU

047 | 3 Life Lessons from a Pineapple

I love pineapple. I could eat it all day, every day! I'm always looking at ways that I can learn life lessons in the most unusual ways. I feel like when we learn things in unusual ways, it helps them to stick. One of the things that I wanted to know was how this gorgeous pineapple ended up in the produce section at my local supermarket, and so I did some research to find out. How do pineapples grow? Where do they grow? What can I learn about pineapples? What I learned in learning about pineapples really struck me as valuable life lessons that we can learn and apply in our lives. In this episode, I share three life lessons I have learned from pineapples.

045 | I had an argument with my husband

I had an argument with my husband, and it set me off. I was so mad that I didn't speak to him for the rest of the day. I felt like I was put in a corner. You do not put me in a corner. This is my business, my thing. And I got all mad.  I was unable to go through my morning meditation the next day because I was so mad… but I had to remember something that I had learned in my meditation teacher training.  One of the things that we had learned was the fact that everything is here to help you learn and grow. Every experience, everything that you go through – good or bad. And oftentimes when bad things happen, or things that make us angry, we want to just be in our feelings of anger, hurt, and disappointment. And yet, we miss the opportunity to look for the lesson.  In this experience, I want to share that in moments of

044 | Do You Trust You?

What kind of friend are you to yourself? And so we're our own best friend. Think about what that does on a subconscious level. Do you trust you? Do you trust your own word to yourself? Do you have a friend or maybe a partner, spouse, relative, a co-worker, someone in your life who you just don't trust? They have made you so many promises and they never come through. This is the friend who says, “Absolutely, I am going to be there,” and then they never show up. Or the friend who borrows money from you and says, “You know what, I will pay you back next payday. I promise you I'm going to pay you back,” and they don't. How does that make you feel? I'm gonna guess you feel let down. You feel frustrated, you might even feel angry. You stop trusting them.

Too many of us are fair weather friends to our goals. I'll work on it when it's convenient for me. So some of us are expecting full time results. And we only want to put in part time work. If you have not yet set your goals, if you haven't decided what it is, that's important to you this year, here's your permission slip not to feel bad about that. Just because the date changed on January 1, it does not mean that anything else changed in the world. We put so much pressure on ourselves, so much emphasis on this one day, that this is the day that we all need to suddenly become a new person. Nothing magic happened on January 1. You woke up and you're still the same person. The problems you had are still the same problems. The things that you love are still the same things that you love.

Of all of the WORTHY pillars, the one that is most challenging for me is the R – Reflection and Rest. For years, I really didn't see the point of looking back at things that had already happened  because there was nothing I could do to change them. I used to think about the things where I had failed or hadn't achieved what I wanted to achieve, and I would use that as an opportunity to beat myself up. When it came to successes, I really look at it as, “Well, I achieved that, what’s the next thing?” Never did I really give myself the time to reflect.  It wasn't until I was in a coaching program where it was really emphasized that there was power in reflection, there was power in looking backward, and that actually looking backward was what could propel you forward. I was amazed at what I learned about myself, about the situations that kept repeating themselves in my life. I learned that it is important to ce

037 | 5 Tips on How To Talk To Yourself

One of the things that we do subconsciously without even realizing it, is our habits of thinking. Most people have never really thought about the fact that your thoughts are habits. When I talk about habits, most of the time people think about going to the gym or eating healthy. Rarely do we ever think about the fact that our thinking is a habit. It all comes from how we think, and also from something even smaller than that – it is the things that we say to ourselves. I read that we think roughly about 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts a day, and of those thoughts, the majority are habitual thoughts. What's even sadder is that the majority of things we think are negative thoughts, and the majority of things that we think in our minds is our self talk the way we speak to ourselves. </spa

It is a really important point for you to remember that your self care is really reflective of how you see yourself. How you treat yourself, is how you see yourself. We need to dispel this notion that self-care is this thing that you do once in a while. Self-care is how you treat yourself every single day. There are so many other things and ways that you probably haven’t even thought of being forms of ‘self-care’ – all which I talk about in this episode. Let's make self-care something that we do every single day and we don't just save it for Sunday's or occasional spa days.

029 | 7 Habits to Create A Life You Love

I literally was raised in a mud hut with no running water, and no electricity. The aspiration for me growing up was that I would get an education and I would make something of myself. What I lacked in material things I more than made up for in terms of the love and the attention that I got from my family. One thing that my grandmother would always say to me as a little girl growing up, every time she saw an airplane flying up high, she'd say to me, “Sandra, do you see that airplane up there? One day, one day you're going to be on that airplane going overseas.”  When we were on the bus, she'd be pointing out all these beautiful houses with big yards and swimming pools and she'd say to me, “Sandra, one day, one day, you're going to live in one of those houses.” And so that was the story that I grew up with this belief

Whenever you find yourself in disagreement or in conflict, whether in a romantic relationship or work relationship, it's always a great question to ask yourself -- Is this important? Will this matter a day, a week, a month, a year from now? And would I rather be right at this moment, or would I rather feel good? A lot of the time the reason we want to be right is all about ego. I want to be right, I want to be the one who came up with the idea. But sometimes being right comes at the expense of relationships and constant arguments.You have to think about it from this context and say, “Will this matter? This thing that I'm arguing about right now, in this moment that feels so big, so important -- Will it matter?” If it's not going to matter, it's not fundamentally important. As Elsa would say, “Let it go.”

Every day I wake up, I pick up my backpack, and I put it on my back and I go through my day. And as I'm going through my day, I pick up different things, and I put them in my backpack. And as I get to the end of the day, I take off my backpack, I empty it out, I go to bed. And the next day, I start fresh with a new empty backpack.” What a profound way of going through life, because here's what happens. As he rightly said, every day is a new day, it's a blank slate, it's a fresh start. And yet, for many of us, we wake up, and we carry a backpack that has all of the worries of yesterday, all of the concerns, and all of the things that happened.

There has to be some way of measuring how you're doing, there has to be some way for you to know whether you're going in the right direction or not.  I also want to remind you that ultimately, tracking is just feedback. It is telling you whether you're going in the right direction, or not. If you need to change something or not. That's all it is. And the reason we often find tracking

010 | 5 Questions to find your purpose

How do I find my purpose? This is a question that I've been asking myself all through my 30s. And then when I turned 40, I had an epic meltdown because I hadn't figured out the answer to the question ‘What is my purpose?’ You see, in asking that question of ‘Why haven't I figured out what my purpose is?’ I negated everything that I had done -- all the relationships that I had created, all the academic achievements, all of the life that I had lived up until that point, and it’s because I didn't have the answer to this one question. Everything that had gone before it was meaningless.  This led me to a lot of self-reflection, introspection about what purpose is, and why we need to have a purpose in life.  The dictionary says that purpose is the reason something exists, and

009 | My Mt. Kilimanjaro Fail

12 years ago, I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. And despite all my readiness and preparation, it did not go well.  In this episode, I am telling this story -- a story I have avoided talking about for so long -- because it is something that has been coming up for me in a new endeavor. This story is a reminder to everyone, and to myself.  This experience I share will demonstrate the power of our stories -- the power of the stories that we tell ourselves, and what we allow ourselves to believe to be true about ourselves.

008 | How to Change your Mindset

If there is one thing that irks and bothers me the most about people in personal development is when they say, “You just need to change your mindset!”  They make it sound as easy as changing your clothes. They tell you WHAT to do but not HOW to do it. I find it so disrespectful. It's not that simple.  So what can you do? What are the things that you practically do to take steps towards changing your mindset?  Because ultimately, yes, it is correct that everything stems from how you think -- your mindset. But changing your mindset is not an overnight thing. The decision to change could be in an instant, but the actual practicality of overcoming all the years of stories of the way you'

007 | 5 Habits for a Better Monday

Raise your hand if you hate Mondays. I'll put my hand up, and I'll say for a long time, I was one of those people.  On Mondays, I was always scrambling, I was always behind. And it was also just really hard to get going and motivated after the weekend, especially if it had been a long weekend. I had to start to think about what I could do to make my Monday experience better.  We're not talking here about your why and having a goal and all of that, because yes, that absolutely should be something you're excited to get going with on Mondays, assuming you work on your goals starting Monday to Friday. But for most of us, the start of the week is always a little bit challenging.  In this episode, I will share 5  things -- 5 habits that I've implemented for myself that have ma

005 | The real definition of Self-care

Today we are talking about Self-care.  Yes, that important subject that most people seem to associate with Sunday's, but self-care isn't just about Sundays. Self-care isn't just about facials and manis and pedis. Self-care is so much deeper than that.  True Self Care is truly caring about yourself. I think we really need to make that distinction. Self- care really is about first and foremost, prioritizing yourself, making sure that you are on your priority list to begin with, and that you're not the last thing on your priority list when everything else and everyone else has been taken care of.  In this episode, I talk about true Self-Care-- taking care of your mind, your body, and your spirit.

004 | Who do I need to be to achieve my goals

One of the very first things that we think about when we're pursuing any goal is ‘what do I need to do?’ And so often we write down our goal, and then we think about all the action steps and all the things that we need to do.  We come up with our TO-DO list, and yet so rarely does anyone ever think about a TO-BE list.  Yes, I think that your TO-BE list is actually more important than your TO-DO list when it comes to achieving your goals. You see, anything and everything that you do is really driven by your identity -- what you believe about yourself, and a lot of this happens at the subconscious level. We are not even really aware of some of the things that are driving us towards or away from our goals.  But for you to be successf

003 | Why you need to plan to fail

What if I told you that one of the key missing ingredients from your goal setting is you haven't planned to fail?  Why, you might ask, should you plan to fail? Isn't the whole point of going after your goals is to be successful? You're absolutely right. But here's what happens when we're going after our goals -- and it doesn't matter whether it's a big goal or a little goal. Going after your goals is not a linear line to success. What inevitably happens is that along the way we meet with challenges and things we didn't expect, or things just don't go the way that we expected.  And so the key to success is really preparing ourselves for that, preparing our minds for the fact that, hey, things could go wrong. Things could fail. So how do you do it? In this episode, you wil

002 | Fear

I wanted to start this episode with a confession.  You see, I've been procrastinating about recording this episode. I've been planning and prepping for this episode for what feels like months, and what I realized is that I was afraid. I was afraid to press record.  What's so funny is that I am a life coach, a business coach, and a habits coach. This is exactly what I work with -- people that I coach on getting over fear. And yet here I was finding all kinds of reasons not to press the record button. I thought I'd call myself out, and I wanted to share it just so that we can all feel and know that there is nothing wrong with fear.

000 | Introduction to WORTHY Podcast

Hey, I'm Sandra, and I wanted to let you know that I'm launching a new podcast.  In this podcast, I'm going to be sharing with you tools, tips, tricks, information that I've gathered, and information that my guests will be bringing to you all about how you can fully step into the power that you have.  It'll be a reminder that you are worthy. One of my favorite quotes is from Glinda from The Wizard of Oz. Glinda, the Good Witch, tells Dorothy at the end of her journey, a line that really resonated with me.  She says, “You've always had the power, my dear. You've had it all along.”  And that's what I truly believe. We all have the power. We all have it within us -- to be, to do, to have whatever it is that we aspire to, whateve
