Episode Description

Making others happy seems to be a women’s role but the price paid is destructive, self-sabotaging ‘girly thoughts’ that arise wreaking havoc on her success -- personally and professionally. Noted psychologist and author Dr. Patricia O’Gorman coined these ‘girly thoughts’ in her latest book, The Resilient Woman: Mastering the 7 Steps to Personal Power. The Resilient Woman is a guide for women to uncover their inner power, providing tools to help women find their own best solutions and stop their girly thoughts that tell them who they are, how they should act, ultimately holding them back. Areas include: 1) Discover the resilience patterns established in childhood; 2) Understand issues that are specific to women when dealing with any relationship; 3) Learn to overcome trauma - physical, psychological, and emotional; 4) Discover how to self-motivate by losing the victim mentality; and 5) Understand what resiliency is and is not, and how to achieve it.
