Mimi Bishop and Jackie Ghedine are both certified life coaches who focus their work on Generation X women.
Co-founders of The Resting Mind, they are co-hosts of the podcast Make Your Life Magnificent with Jackie + Mimi available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher and have been featured in Business Insider, Entrepreneur, Thrive Global, Tiny Buddha, TEDx and are VIP Experts at FairyGodBoss.
Many of their clients have the skills, experience, and accomplishments, but they find themselves getting tongue-tied when having to answer the age-old questions, “tell me about yourself.” Using The Resting Mind’s proprietary tools combining brain science and energy leadership they help Gen-X women create sustainable change.
In this dual-guest episode, these women share their thoughts on the impact of our thoughts, what energy leadership is, and how we can make choices about how we show up, as well as their own stories of moments from their lives where the understanding of the world and their relationships changed as a result of important loss, or fear of loss.
Takeaways from this episode
While our energy may impact how we feel, our thoughts directly influence our energy. We can make choices about how we want to behave and the way we want to resonate in the world.
How we choose to view our experiences in life, can lead us to a place of incredible learning. The easiest way to learn from an experience is to pause and ask the question: "What can I learn from this?"
Shared moments of life tension where we are forced to rely on another human being and to show up for them in important ways create important bonds. If we allow these bonds to remain part of our lives, they can act as a gift in what might otherwise simply be a painful memory.
People have a tendency to go the most extreme language in labeling their emotional experiences. BUT not every experience is a 10 out of 10 on the pain or pleasure scale. Because words have power, it is wise to differentiate true pain and tragedy from hiccups and blips in life.
