* How The Joy Of Missing Out
author Tonya Dalton discovered the stories and self-talk that were keeping her from really enjoying life and celebrating her success* Why identifying the litmus tests she put herself through helped her determine what she really wanted out of life and business* How she reflects on the good, the bad, and the ugly to keep her stories and self-talk in check* How Tonya rewrites her stories so her self-talk supports her and the life she wants to lead
Let’s talk about self-talk.
Self-talk is that voice inside your head that narrates everything happening around you.
Sometimes self-talk pumps you up—like after you nail a meeting with a new client and you remind yourself what a boss you are.
Sometimes self-talk cuts you down—like when you realize you’ve made a mistake and you tell yourself you’re such a screw-up.
I think we’re all pretty familiar with how our inner critics or inner cheerleaders can impact the way we feel or act at this point.

You’ll also hear from podcaster Elsie Escobar
about how she audits her growth and accomplishments over the course of the year and sets intentions for the year to come.
Then, you’ll hear from Hailey Thomas
about how a sudden loss led her to rethinking the way her business operates and how it impacts her life.
Alright, back to self-talk and the fear of missing out.
A bunch of the stories we tell ourselves revolve around what it takes to be a good business owner.
And these stories make it really difficult to take good care of ourselves.
Your story might be that a good business owners is always available for their clients—so the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night is check your email.
Or, you might tell yourself that a good business owner always completes their to-do list—and you beat yourself up when you don’t.
Or, you might tell yourself that a good business owner is on all the social media platforms—so you work your tail off to be o...
