Angel Shannon - "Enoughism"Jun 27, 2022
Today I'm sharing some insight for finding fulfillment, forging meaning, and making an impact from an inspiring difference-maker living her legacy.[Angel Shanon is the founder of Steva Health. Catch our entire conversation here.
[ANGEL] "To your bigger question about what to do, because that's what people want, "Give me. Give me. Tell me what to do ," right?"
"We're very 'do' oriented."
"I have this little little sticky notepad thing that i came up with, 'Today i will not...'"
"Literally, it just has lines. I give that out to clients and say, 'Just pick one thing you will not do today.'"
"It's really reversing it's reversing that propensity to always have something to."
"And here's another thing I think a lot about i terms of my own path in overcoming what I call 'enoughism.'"
"There was a time when i just always felt like I needed to do more. Give more. And i'd be working harder than my patients!"
"I'd be in the middle of the night coming up with resources and tools and they'd come to their appointments and I'd say, 'Did you do any of the things that we talked about?'"
"And they'd say, 'No.'"
"So, I'm working harder than my patients are to help them."
"So, I had to overcome that 'enoughism.'"
"So I have another little sticky thing that I give to folks."
"I just give them a little marker and give them a sticky pad to just write 'Enough.'"
"I just take that word, 'Enough,' and write it on your sticky pad and post it in a couple of places as a reminder that you are always enough and you are always doing enough."
"And I think just rewiring that mindset of doing, doing, doing is, again, just another first step."
