I interviewed mindset coach Kimberley Wiggins to find out how she helps women cultivate the confidence to shine their brilliance. (The strategies are applicable to men, too!)
Listen to our 2-part dialogue on YourCreativeChord PODCAST.
Kimberley Wiggins is an empowerment coach, speaker, and the owner of Inspired Women Amazing Lives and A Voice Worth Sharing Productions.
Wiggins works with women to help them build their confidence, become more visible in their business and get over themselves to build the success they desire on their own terms. She does this by “helping women reconnect with their brilliance.”
Wiggins is also a podcast consultant helping those interested in learning how to start a podcast. She’s passionate about empowering women who have a message to share.
We discussed self-compassion practices for women, as well as ways for nurturing creativity and living an inspired life. Wiggins minces no words when it comes to raising the bar for women to be empowered and authentic.
In our interview, she shared how her mindset coaching practice centers on “awakening the core of who you are and sharing your brilliance!”
HERE ARE A FEW SNEAK PEAK HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR CHAT:
Wiggins is intent on dispelling the myth that women are victims or less capable than others. “We as women are not hurt or damaged; we have just somehow lost our brilliance. I help you to get it back.”
Wiggins vigorously requests that more women take action without being apologetic or hesitant. “Don’t Ask! Do!”
We talked about how standing up for truth or your truth sometimes elicits flack from others. We viewed this from the perspective of expecting resistance. “The resistance from the wind raises the plane!”
Wiggins enthusiastically confirms, “Getting resistance is an indication you are on the right track!”
We dove into how personal, financial, career or health issues can be changed from struggle into mission. “You’re in charge. Take full responsibility.” (You da boss!)
For those wrestling with negative self-talk patterns, Wiggins recommends that you “Be able to identify who you are. Ask yourself: Who am I? Ask questions of yourself!”
“Challenge negative self-talk by thinking differently. It’s not the negative stuff you’re saying—it’s what you are NOT saying to yourself.”
“Stop accepting that. Speak to your subconscious mind and stop it. Let your subconscious mind know that you are in charge of who you are!”
“Stop seeing yourself as not being able to move forward in your life.”
Wiggins also shared a few of her tips for women to build more confidence and a positive self-image. “Consistent action and building your confidence is what helps awaken you to the greatness inside.”
“Shining light on the good places within you crowds out the darkness.”
We also talked about how to stop saying yes when you really need to say no. We talked through how to formulate a response to say no when you’ve got too much on your plate or it’s not a good fit for you (or the other party). We walked through a scenario illustrating how to incorporate healthy boundaries by postponing a concrete decision with the use of your calendar.
“Go to your corner to determine if it’s a win-win.”
“Being still to allow space gives you the ability to take your power back.”
