Monday Mention: About Progress with Monica Packer

I need to own in to my choice to not play small, so that I can grow in my life, because I will always regret if I stopped something or I played small because of someone else’s opinion.

Monica Packer

I recently heard maybe the most raw podcast I have ever listened to, and I listen to a lot. So, if ever you listen to an episode I recommend, I invite you to listen to this one:

In it, Monica reads a negative review she received about her podcast, her heart, and her identity. She talks about the 3 types of Naysayers we might encounter, steps into their shoes a little bit, and gives 3 helpful ways to deal with them as well.

Here is a quick rundown for you:

3 Types of Naysayers

  1. The Well-Intentioned Naysayer: Uncomfortable on your behalf, sometimes mute (but you can tell)
  2. The Unknowing Critic: Unknowingly feel fear/threatened, scarcity mindset
  3. The Anonymous & Cruel Critics (Trolls): Intentionally malicious

3 Ways to Deal with the Naysayers in Your Life

  1. Anchor In: To your support system, to your divine nature, to knowing what is right & doing it anyway (ask for support, not permission)
  2. Gratitude: Try to find ways to get your mind off of you.
  3. Dare Greatly: Not everyone is going to love you, but look to the seats that matter.

I strongly encourage you to listen for more. You won’t regret it 😊.

Here’s to not playing it small because of someone else’s opinion, loving ourselves more, and anchoring in to the things that matter.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I will be listening to this. I do love your synopsis. Ultimately it’s all about loving yourself and being OK with the naysayers too.

    1. You are welcome ❀ . You are right, I think that is the bigger goal. There is a quote I love – "The fact that someone loves you doesn't rescue you from the project of loving yourself". Thank you for reading! πŸ™‚

  2. Love, gratitude, and joy are divine negativity trouncers. Jenny, this truly an inspirational message. I love the reminder to ask for support, not necessarily permission (depending on the circumstance of course). This is a wonderful encouragement. β™₯β™₯
