Get What You Want by Getting Out of Your Own Way: Podcast

Munson-Laurasm“When we base our happiness on things out of our control, we’re living in insanity and powerlessness.”

How can we take control when things are difficult, and how can we create the life that we envision? In our free tele-class, author Laura Munson walks us through a series of powerful questions to help raise self-awareness and be able to:

•  Claim your life
•  See where you are stuck
•  Get out of victim-stanced thinking and into Practical Creative Thinking
•  Get your life to work by actively creating your life!

Laura led participants through thought-provoking questions in self-awareness to create balance within these four categories


•  Inner Critic: When is she loudest?  What does she say to you?
•  Self vs. Self: Where are you in a fight in your life?  What do you resist that you know is good for you?
•  The Flow: What do you most like to do? How often do you do it?
•  Practical Creativity: When you are facing hardship, ask yourself:  What can I create?
