It’s incredible how empowering it can be to bring in different perspectives to our decision making process. When we ask questions, do research, trust ourselves, consult with multiple authorities, and make decisions from there, then we can truly feel secure in our choices, regardless of the outcome. That’s what we dive into on today’s podcast with Africa Brooke: a mindset coach, business consultant, podcaster, and speaker, who specializes in helping people overcome what is commonly known as self-sabotage. This conversation covers woke culture (and toxic forms of it), self-censorship, cancel culture, and so much more. They also dive into Africa’s journey to sobriety, and how she developed self-responsibility from that.
This episode is a reminder that we live in a world of endless creativity. If we cut off that creativity by putting ourselves into a shameful mindset, or preventing ourselves from moving away from our past, we’re doing a disservice to ourselves and to the world. Africa encourages us to stay open-minded, take what works for us, and create our own opinion.
