“Are you worthy of being in a loving relationship, of being vulnerable?”
Have you ever suddenly realized an assumption you had made about yourself wasn’t true?
It can be wildly unnerving and scary or it can be one of the greatest opportunities for personal growth.
My dear friend Mimi Truong had one of these wake up calls that shifted everything for her in her self-worth perspective.
Since then, she has been dedicated to awakening her self-worth, putting it front and center in her life, and teaching others to do the same.
Mimi already had a successful life, career, marriage, and friendships before this discovery.
But it wasn’t until she realized that she was terrified to speak about herself publicly that she came to terms with long-held beliefs that she wasn’t worth it.
I loved diving into her process around this journey, not just because we have such similar experiences and are walking parallel paths.
Mimi is an incredibly wise woman and gifted coach. She has taught me so much about owning my worth, and I am delighted to share some of her wisdom with you in this conversation.
