Episode 8: Failure is OK with Ashley Looker

Hi, gorgeous! We’ve got so much soul and inspiration on tap for you in this week’s interview. Lindsey and I are thrilled to introduce you to Ashley Looker, Women's Wellness + Empowerment Coach, yoga teacher, and recovering perfectionist. Ashley got real and vulnerable with us about authenticity, turning traditional views of failure on their head, and what it means to truly thrive.

This episode was made for all of our fellow recovering perfectionists out there and for those of us who want to reframe -- and release -- the guilt and shame that often accompany failure.

HERE'S A SNEAK PEEK OF THE GOODNESS…

“Failure is a necessary part of our growth. It’s a necessary part of being an entrepreneur. It means that you’re taking risks, and you’re stepping out of your comfort zone, and you’re trying new things.”
— Ashley Looker
“I try to see failures as feedback, as ways to get more clear, as messages. What’s the lesson, what am I supposed to be learning from this, and how can I become more clear about what the next step is?”
— Ashley Looker
“It’s not always that pretty. Sometimes, it’s mascara running down my face, falling on the floor, on my knees, incredibly heartbroken. But, I really try to ask myself what the lesson is.”
— Ashley Looker on failure
“What I’ve found is that when I take the pressure off and I realize and accept and acknowledge that this is practice, it feels so much lighter for my soul.”
— Ashley Looker on the power of viewing everything in life as a practice
