Sharon wrote the model after years of waking up with "the worst negative self talk," she says. "Self loathing, self pity. And I tried hard to play a small game because I never wanted to risk myself."
Wanting a career and life that connected with her heart, Sharon convinced herself "the only way forward was to stop. Can anyone tell me if there's anything more illogical ... I really want to move forward in my life so I'm going to stop?"
Enter Core, Crud, Crust—think of two smaller circles inside a big one—which will help build your online coaching business, and is also "a journey to ourselves."
Our core is who we are on the inside "once we scrape away the BS about how we tell ourselves we're not enough," says Sharon. "It's the heart of us, the truth of us, the part that is courageous and adventurous and loves the idea of growth."
In a nutshell, decisions, goals and life’s purpose are determined from a place of love, truth, courage, a sense of adventure, playfulness, and childlike wonder.
This is less poetic.
As we grow up, we start convincing ourselves "the fears are real, the limits matter, the boundaries we create in our lives about who we can be become fixed," says Sharon.
"We create these stories for ourselves: I'm a procrastinator, I'm a self saboteur. Our world begins to shrink because we start believing this stuff and we think it defines us."
So, decisions, goals and life’s purpose are determined from a place of fear, lack of trust, self-doubt, self-loathing and constant negative self-talk.
