Episode 520: How to Lose Your Emotional Obesity


On Today’s Show

Our culture is emotionally obese.

We are unhappy, we are unfulfilled, we are resentful, and we harbor the emotional issues – from childhood till now – that keep us from achieving our dreams. Whether we know it or not.

From selling her multi-million dollar business to the Fortune 500 to writing her latest book, it’s been a journey for Laura Coe. Now she’s here to tell us her story and why we need to address our issues if we ever have a shot at regaining agency over our lives again.

On today’s episode, Dave recaps episodes 516-519 where Healthcare Entrepreneur Laura Coe talks about her book, “Emotional Obesity: A Philosophical Guide to Lighten Your Life.”

Episode 516: Why You’re Stressed and Tired

1 Simple Thing Action:
The very first thing is awareness. You cannot do any of this work unless you are willing to stop, pause, take note of the things you are thinking, and question their validity. The very first step of the process is awareness.

Episode 517: How to Get Your Mind in Shape

1 Simple Thing Action:
Replace the junk food thoughts with nutritional thoughts. The negative thoughts are like junk food. Ask yourself, “What do I want?” “What would I do if the world were completely my oyster or if I could have anything I want?” Notice the immediate limiting belief statements and write those down. Those are your junk food thoughts. Then talk to a dear friend or get a coach to replace those with empowered, nutritional beliefs that empower you.

Episode 518: The Truth About Authenticity

1 Simple Thing Action:
Trust the deeper part of yourself that says, “This is my truth.” Take today and say, “Today I am going to act from my authentic truth.” Just be in your truth without feeling guilty or responsible for someone else. Just grant yourself a simple truth. Try that ten times and see the kinds of things that come up. It’s a workout, but keep flexing this muscle, and practice being kind to yourself until you get better at it.
