How to be more successful while living your dream life
Episode #24 – Interview with Spencer Snakard
Spencer is an Executive Transformation Coach, Trainer, and Speaker. She works with Visionary Entrepreneurs & Transformational Leaders who are on a mission to make a major impact, helping them to break through barriers to their next level of success while loving life every step of the way … and without giving up what matters most to them.
She got a degree in psychology because she wanted to help people live their best life and fulfill their dreams. But she discovered after college that she didn’t agree with the field. She found a weekend seminar about transformational training and coaching that was all about creating possibilities in your life and being unstoppable in all areas. She knew instantly that this was what she wanted to do. It was a long path until she was able to run her own coaching business and now she is loving every minute of it.
The biggest obstacle on her journey
Her biggest obstacle to get to this point was fear, just like for everybody else. Spencer believes that we are spiritual beings that are having a human experience and that who we truly are is a soul and a spiritual essence. While we are in these breakable human bodies we have necessary surviving needs because of that. We have this idea of who we need to be so that we can belong which can limit us. After a long journey, Spencer discovered that she has this vision of herself of someone who can survive anything and comes out of hard situations even stronger.
It’s a common fear that if we don’t do things in a certain way, we won’t be liked or respected. That’s the reason why many people put a mask on or play a role because they think that’s the way to success. One of the most powerful things we can do is take that mask off and show who we really are. An important step is to actually recognize who we truly are and what our place in the world is. It took Spencer over 15 years to get to that point of truly knowing herself which shows that you just have to take it one step at a time and start with finding yourself and your own intuition.
How to trust your intuition
As much as Spencer wa
nts to give tips, they would barely scratch the surface. You have to put in the work to find out who you are and what matters most to you. With that, you will also achieve your goals and vision in life. She recommends working with a coach or someone who can support you with that because they can look at your situation from an outside perspective.
One thing that Spencer always tells her clients is if there is something you want to achieve but you can’t make it happen or it feels like a struggle, then there is probably something related to your identity that is getting in the way.
About the hustle mentality
I personally believe that if someone is hustling to get the job done instead of enjoying life, they might be missing a connection or they could be looking for a deeper fulfillment without even knowing it. Spencer agrees that hustle is very identity-driven. People believe that they have to work hard or give everything they can because they think that’s the way it has to be. She had a similar experience with a client who believed that people in happy relationships had to be broke and successful people can’t be in a happy relationship. She had seen that people didn’t have both and developed a fear that if one of those would be too good, the other one had to fail. She was afraid to move forward and become more successful.
Common believes that are holding us back
For anyone, this is some feeling of not being enough. This is where the conflict of our spiritual side and the human side really shows. That could be because we are these spiritual beings who are all-powerful and limitless but we are living in these limited physical bodies that are cut off from this limitless power. So we are living in a physical appearance of not being enough which could explain why people feel this way. We have to find a way to embrace this side of humanity and this starts with recognizing that we are magnificent beings that don’t need to be repaired.
How to not compare yourself to others
So many people are comparing themselves to others and try to copy what they see. It’s important to realize that these people don’t have the perfect lives you see. You also have to discover who you really are and what your talents are. There is a huge number of coaches who don’t just get clients because they are a coach but because of who they really are and the way they inspire people.
Spencer’s journey of becoming a coach
It was quite a journey for her. She discovered coaching right after college and she worked with the company that she did the course with. She was working long hours and tried to find a better way of work in a corporate setting but it never evolved that way. She started teaching yoga and opened a yoga studio which wasn’t a way to make money but rather to feed her soul. She even tried to sneak in a few life lessons and coaching into her yoga classes because she wanted to help people. A big part of yoga is personal development and embracing all of who you are. That was her way of doing what she wanted but yoga was never truly what she wanted to do. When she discovered the world of online coaching she realized that she was able to do this on her own and in the exact way that she wanted to do it. She wasn’t sure if she would fit in the coaching industry or if she could let go of the yoga studio. But she felt like she could no longer ignore the callings to her soul for this. She felt like this is what she was here to do and she could no longer hide it.
