EP 71 // Believing in My Authentic Self // Chelsie Hightower

The minute I’m trying to live up to people’s perception of me, and not just be me, the more inauthentic I feel.

I am grateful that my friend Chelsie wanted to record an episode on this podcast, because I just knew she had solid insight into worthfull living.

You may know Chelsie already if you’re a longtime fan of TV shows like So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing with the Stars. She competed on both of them for years and is truly an extraordinary dancer (I can say that because I was a fan of hers way back in college).

Chelsie has ridden the wild rollercoaster of fame, media, influence, celebrity-dom, and more. She’s learned to manage anxiety in a healthy way, pass on opportunities that don’t feel good anymore, and reconnect to what matters the most to her – again and again.

I have a feeling you’ll resonate with what she’s learned about self-worth; the truth is, we’re all learning the same worthfull lessons, no matter what our journeys look like.
