The Girl with the Self Esteem Issues

Chris welcomes Rosie to the show and shares the story of how they met. They talk about Rosie’s journey in life and her struggles with her weight. Chris shares some of his current issues around weight and how he worries about what other people think.

“It’s about your personal happiness, not everybody else’s reflection of your happiness or what it should be or what it should look like.” – Rosie Mercado

Listen to Your Body (21:45)

Your body speaks to you, but are you listening? Chris and Rosie discuss the importance of looking at your relationship with food and listening to what your body tells you. They talk about the addictive nature of food and how binging behaviors can be changed.

“Really pay attention to the thoughts that are flooding through and allow yourself to feel it, because sometimes we don’t want to feel those emotions.” – Rosie Mercado

Purpose Versus Potential (40:40)

Chris and Rosie talk about how coming from a place of service opens up life in a very authentic way. Rosie breaks down the importance of living life to your fullest purpose rather than living life to your fullest potential. They end the show with a discussion of how it’s sometimes good to get uncomfortable.

“When you are working from a place of purpose and alignment, there’s a sense of service, there’s a sense of gratitude. You are motivated by your purpose to keep going, nobody’s going to stop you.” – Rosie Mercado
