Change is Hard — But Here’s What We Can Do About It!
Heather sits down with Ali Shapiro to talk about becoming discerning on this episode of Republic of Freedom Radio
How is your body like a startup? Approaching both with a self-directing mindset can help! There’s a great divide between conventional learning and manifesting change — how can we become our own best expert, and what does it mean to become discerning?
We’ve already talked about how the Law of Attraction is total BS. Ali Shapiro helps us deconstruct meritocracy as one example of how privilege can cloud opportunities to grow. Creator of Truce with Food, an “online coaching experience to create lasting food freedom,” and host of the podcast Insatiable, Ali talks about adult development and how changing our mindset and learning are different processes alltogther.
In this episode, we discuss being comfortable with uncertainty and how authenticity changes. We talk about how certain lifestyles can dull the sense of self (looking at you, Corporate America!) by prioritizing group harmony over our own needs. What is the link between how we see food and how we understand ourselves? What are we really learning we’re constantly subjecting ourselves to confirmation bias? Change can get a bad rap, but when the dominant cultural narrative isn’t working, it’s more important than ever.
