Identify Your Internal Cheerleader with Olivia Pener

Back in Episode 17, I chatted with my friend and mastermind buddy Olivia Pener about mindset blocks in online business. As always when Olivia and I chat we have a lot to discuss and I always walk away feeling like I’ve gotten so much value. When we recorded the episode we ended up chatting for almost 3 hours!  Today I am super excited to share part 2 of that episode with you. Before we jump into the next episode here is a refresher of part one:

Noisy Passenger– Your noisy passengers are the passengers in your mind that go with you and often are the loudest. They tend to be the thoughts that leave you stuck in place and doubting your abilities. Thoughts like, “People are going to hate this blog post,” or “Who am I to start a business?”

ACT Training– ACT is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. This training teaches acceptance and mindfulness strategies to increase psychological flexibility.

In this episode

  • Identifying your drowned out passengers (inspiring and uplifting voices).
  • Why you shouldn’t minimize compliments

Part 1: How to Move Forward With Your Mental Blocks

Now Tell Me:

  • What was the last amazing thing you’ve done?
  • Where aren’t you giving yourself enough credit?
  • What is something you’re scared to try?


  1. Clare Liz - NinjaVAServices

    The last amazing thing I did was this morning when I smashed through a workout that I really mentally didnt think my body could do. Afterwards I felt like I had accomplished a big mental battle by just getting over the wall I was hitting. – I really like the “I’d rather just be the real vulnerable version of me. Whoever connects with me, connects with me.” – this is definitely a motto I am clinging to from now on!

  2. Nadalie Bardowell

    For one, I would say I am not giving myself enough credit for where I am today and where I plan to be tomorrow. I don’t always take the time to look back and see how much progress I have made over the last few months. It is unreal and it feels great, here is to new beginnings for the year of 2018!!

  3. Dia

    Start celebrating those little wins, Nadalie! Thanks for commenting.

    Yes! Clare, I know that feeling. I do find that my body can often do more than my mind wants to think it can.

  5. Dia

    I know what you mean. This past week I got basically the same message from two different people that was exactly what I needed to hear.

    The episode sounds very interesting and I am going to to check it out. One thing blogging has thought about me is that I don’t give up easily. I try to push myself every though I believe I can’t make it or my body will not support for it. It’s all about perseverance and consistency
