Welcome to Episode 39 of our podcast, Courageous Conversations, hosted by Leanne Pilkington.

In this episode, we welcome back Tanja Lee, leadership and mindset coach. She talks about what’s changed since we last had her on the podcast in 2019 both in business and her personal life, why listening to her inner voice has helped her change direction and focus, the 5 things that hold us back from fulfilling our potential, and her plans for coaching into 2020.

00:15 – Revisiting 2019 for Tanja as both the best and worst of her years.

04:00 – Listening to her inner voice and looking for the gaps in real estate coaching.
06:00 – Reviewing a message from her journaling in Bali about goal-setting
08:00 – “Our higher self knows what we want.” Fear gets in the way of courage.
09:00 – Tanja’s new calling to empower people to find and fulfil their potential now.
10:10 – “We know what to do, we know how to be fit, we know how to be successful, we know how to be wealthy, but we sabotage ourselves.”
11:00 – It doesn’t have to be about the hustle and bustle all the time, and the challenge of over-consuming information.
12:00 – 5 reasons why we don’t fulfil our potential: addiction to being right, avoiding responsibility, staying safe and comfortable (this is the most common), being a victim, and seeking significance.
15:30 – “If our soul just wants to go create what it loves, our ego’s agenda is to seek validation.” Overcompensating leads to people-pleasing, and then to burnout.
18:40 – As creators, we can create what we want. But if we’re in situations or relationships that aren’t serving you or you’re faced with too much drama around it, “there is something unconsciously in you that is attracting that to you.”
19:30 – There’s a lot beyond our control, but there is also so much we CAN do.
20:15 – Tanja’s plans to carry her lessons through her coaching.
22:00 – Tanja’s daughter’s health scare while travelling in Bali
