The Power of Guidance

The Power of Guidance

Update: 2019-02-153


The way you were raised still has effects on you today.

It’s not that you should blame your parents. They did the best they could.

But you should be aware of how your current actions reflect the truths you learned growing up.

Growing up, my parents were raising four kids and working multiple jobs. I always felt invisible.

I know that a lot of what motivates me today stems from those feelings of not being seen.

For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Alanis Morissette where we talked about the stages of development and how they mold us into the people we are today.

Alanis Morissette is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and actress. Her album Jagged Little Pill has sold more than 33 million copies globally. She’s also an avid supporter of female empowerment as well as physical and spiritual wellness.

Learn about Alanis’ upbringing and how it made her into the person she is today on Episode 759.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

Why Alanis was an overachiever growing up (2:00)

How parenting was different 40 years ago (3:00)

The stages of development and how significant it is if they are missed (3:30)

How inaccurate mirroring from parents can make you not trust yourself (5:00)
