How often do you feel like you are running in circles, drowning in chaos, and dreaming for more balance? If you are raising your hand saying, “all the time”, know you are not alone. But also understand that balance is created and earned, it isn’t necessarily a given. And with a lack of balance can also come a pessimistic outlook and disbelief in oneself.
That’s something that my podcast episode with Kim Gorski touched upon very well. Head to my podcast here to listen to the January 16 episode.
Working around the clock as a high-level event planner, neglecting her health with food choices of pop tarts and a box of pasta, and leaving self-care as her last thought, Kim struggled with balance and confidence for years. It started and grew from her adolescence with a challenging family dynamic, leaving her to succumb to the neglect that she believed was ‘normal’. The submissive and tentative lifestyle and beliefs in herself didn’t stop until her twenties when she began to learn how much more she deserved from life and in relationships; how much more she was ready to earn. She learned that she had the ability to change her mindset, health, and lifestyle and to surround herself by people of love and positivity rather than negativity.
Kim describes herself as a “former extreme pessimist to an obnoxious optimist.” She CHOSE to make a change in her mindset and continues to choose to grow in that mindset everyday.
Kim Gorski is the CEO of the brand, Balance Over Perfect where she mentors women to find more self-love, learn how to be insanely productive, and share how health & fitness changed her life. She has worked hard to create a brand she is proud of and a system to help we women learn how to do it all, productively and without going insane!
Don’t shy away though, men! Kim is a high performer and advocate for helping all business entrepreneurs grow into themselves to find the best way to serve.
Changing her mindset to a more positive, courageous, and determined one took more time than one would think. It took Kim many years to come to the breakthrough moments where she finally thought to herself, “I will be more than this.”
Being a high performer in our lifestyles and businesses takes a change in mindset direction. It requires us to choose how we want to live our days and how we want to believe in ourselves and in others. Kim, in a very vulnerable way, shares the facts of what living a lifestyle where you have more self-doubt than you do self-acceptance is like. She is raw with us about what it takes to change your mindset to truly start to affect your life on a greater spectrum than just mediocre.
