Releasing the Past, Embracing the Future: 5 Mindset Moves to Confront Conditioning

Hey there, friends! Dr. Taryn here, your leadership coach, and I'm so excited to dive into the main ideas from the latest episode of Cheers to Your Pivot. In this episode, we focused on the concept of prioritizing purpose and how to confront the conditioning that may be holding you back in your personal and professional life. Let's break down the key takeaways from the episode.

I share the 5 mindset moves to help you confront the conditioning in your life and to begin grieving the old versions of yourself.

Timestamped Key Takeaways from the Episode:

[00:09:30] Journaling: Journaling is a powerful tool for releasing negative self-talk, acknowledging fears, restoring faith, and tracking personal growth. It's a great way to cultivate gratitude, set daily intentions, record wins, and explore your emotions.

[00:12:51] Alone Time or Meditation: It's important to set aside alone time for meditation. I share my personal journey of transitioning from thinking meditation was about sitting in silence, to realizing that it can be done while walking or being in movement.

[00:15:05] Getting Clear on Your Strengths: The Clifton Strengths assessment is extremely effective in gaining clarity on natural strengths and abilities, and how it can help you let go of an old version of yourself that doesn't honor your strengths.

[00:17:18] Assessing Social Circles: Surrounding yourself with people who align with the direction you want to go in life is impactful and there is significance in reconnecting through phone calls to restore feelings of connectedness.

(00:19:59) Working with a Coach or Therapist: I encourage you to consider the support of a coach or therapist in the process of grieving old visions of oneself. I emphasized the role of professionals in helping individuals gain clarity and self-acceptance for a more authentic life.


I invite you to join me in this prioritizing purpose miniseries as we continue to explore the idea of leading your way and doing work that truly matters to you.

Remember, confronting conditioning and grieving old versions of yourself is a crucial step in gaining the clarity and direction needed to live a purposeful life.
