When we find ourselves stuck in a bad job, relationship, or situation, our reflex reaction is almost always to stay put. From feeling overwhelmed at the idea of leaving, to letting Imposter Syndrome get in the way of change, life makeovers are hard

But as today’s guest would tell you, “A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.” 

Wendy is a speaker, professional certified life coach, and midlife influencer. She’s the host of The Midlife Makeover Show, a podcast ranked in the top 1% in the world and the #1 in midlife on iTunes and Spotify. 

Today, she’s sharing her best tips on creating a compelling vision of your future, reframing your discomfort, rewiring your brain, and shifting your life into one you love living every single day. This episode might just become your pocket version of “Eat, Pray, Love” when you’re craving a motivational “kick in the butt” to get you going.
