00:00:00 Christine: You are listening to the Your Empty Nest Coach podcast, with Coach Christine, episode number 40. Forty? How am I at 40! The Problem With HUGE Goals. This podcast is for you, a mother who years ago walked away from a career to raise your child. Sure, you’ve been busy volunteering, car pools, maybe part-time work and taking care of everyone. But your main gig, that has been your child. Now, that they are in their later years of high school, the empty nest looms ahead for you and it is freaking you out. I’ve been there and I get it. Together, we’ll turn our freaking out energy into freaking awesome energy.
00:00:45 Hello, my future empty nest friend. Today’s episode came directly from some client work. I love working one-on-one with clients. It is totally my jam. Not only do I enjoy the deep dive work that we are able to do, but I find it energizing that by working with my clients, I am able to process my work on a deeper level, as well as refine the tools and analogies to bring it all to you. Right here. This episode is a direct result of some client work. She’s ah-mazing! Just like you. Although, I’m not sure she believed that when we started working together. Together, she and I were able to figure out her sticking point, and I’m excited to bring it directly to you. So much freaking fun! By the way, can you believe I’m at episode 40? I can’t. It’s crazy. This goes live in two days, that last recording was awful, so I’m re-recording it just before I go on my retreat, and hopefully it is better and you like it. Thank you to my editor for telling me it’s not good enough. I appreciate you!
00:01:58 This topic is a little more advanced in concept. If I lose you, I encourage you to take a listen, or re-listen, to my Empty Nest Prep episodes, where I cover your thoughts and feelings a bit more. We all get these big goals, thoughts and ideas in our life. Don’t get me wrong, they are fantastic as a start. Thoughts like, I’m going to get organized. I’m going to lose weight. I’m going to find a new job. I’m going to discover a new career that is right for me. These are just some examples, and I want to take one of them and process through it together.
00:02:36 I’m going to get organized will be our example for today. It is a fantastic initial thought. But if the thought is only that thought and nothing else, you are left with a feeling that may not have you in a great place, because the inference is that you aren’t organized. Do you follow? When you walk into a room and your mind delivers the thought, I need to get organized, and then later, you go home, look at the kitchen, and you get the thought delivery, I need to get organized. Then, to the closet, same thought. The bathroom, same thought. Whew, those are some tough thought deliveries when they continue all day long in your mind. What is the action from that thought delivery?
00:03:29 As I see it now, the problem is that the thought is just too darn big. It could mean anything. When you walk around continually allowing the thought box “I’m going to get organized” to enter your mind, and then, you sit in that box, and feel whatever feeling you get, which since it is a significant and lousy thought, more than likely you aren’t sitting with a good feeling. What gets done? My guess, for many of us, is that not much changes. We don’t love the feeling we are feeling, but we are super comfortable with the thought that our mind likes to allow entry. Thoughts like, I’m not organized, or I need to get organized. You may even believe that not being organized is part of your identity.
00:04:18 I’m recording this to challenge you on that thought. Whether it is organization, being chronically late, finding a new career, or becoming healthier, I want you to take a moment and consider that you may not be that big thing that you think is your identity. It may just be a thought delivery problem. The package is way too big, and you continue to allow it in your mind, when in reality, you can send it back, and ask that it be delivered in a completely different way, or not at all.
00:04:51 Stay with me. Here’s your action item. Identify the big thought for you. If it is “I’m not organized.” I want you to become conscious enough in your thoughts that you notice the specific thought, “I’m not organized.” I then want you to use it as a trigger to tell your mind, that thought is too big. It isn’t actionable or helpful. The next time you walk into your office and see a mess, and you catch this thought delivery that is way too big, “you’re not organized” or “you need to get organized,” I want you to condition your mind to hear a doorbell. Maybe one you don’t particularly like, and with it arrives the message, “That thought is too big. It isn’t actionable or helpful.” Imagine a delivery person with a 1,000 pound box that they’re about to leave on your doorstep, with no way for you to move it inside. Would you want to accept that delivery?
00:06:00 Imagine that if you leave it outside your door, the doorbell continues to go off, and follow-up with that inactionable thought every few minutes. Annoying? You are allowing your mind to do this to you now, anyway, so let’s notice it, and take care of it. Now, when you hear the doorbell of that too big thought, work on saying to the delivery person, “That thought is too big. I need you to take it back and give me smaller actionable packages.” Then, look to your mind, your GPS to find a way to take a concrete action to move forward. You catch yourself thinking, I need to get organized. Doorbell rings. That thought is too big. It isn’t actionable, or helpful. What is one thing I can do now, to move forward? Maybe the next time you enter a room, you’ll decide that you will spend ten minutes today, cleaning one section of a desk. Make it small. Make it actionable and doable.
00:06:50 Ten minutes is easy, and when you refuse the big delivery, and accept one like, “I’m cleaning a small portion of my desk today,” you gain power in your life. Keep it simple, too. Stick to one area. Get used to connecting those thought deliveries and then, when you can address them with no problem, or have cleaned your entire desk, pick another area.
00:07:14 Think you need accountability? Ask someone to check on you later in the day and put an appointment on your calendar. Do this enough and you will see real change in your life. Why? Because it is the small consistent actions in life that will create massive change. If your thing is weight loss, you could use your too big thought delivery doorbell as an opportunity to choose one thing to do. It could be anything. Eat one more vegetable than you did the day prior. Maybe push your breakfast off an hour to slowly increase an intermittent fasting window, or switch a dessert out for a fruit. Want to see a real and significant change in your life, catch yourself thinking the big thoughts that cause inaction in your life. Start to notice the doorbell on those thought deliveries. Gaining power in your life always starts there.
00:08:08 I can’t wait to hear how you change your life. The questions I have for you in this episode are: one, do you have a big goal that is causing inaction in your life? And, two, are you ready to notice where you need to challenge yourself more?

Christine: You are listening to Your Empty Nest Coach podcast with Coach Christine, episode number 8, Imposter Syndrome and Answers to Your Questions. This podcast is for you, a mother who years ago walked away from a career to raise your child. Sure, you’ve been busy with volunteering, car pools, maybe part-time work and taking care of everyone. But your main gig, that’s been your child. Now, that they are in their later years of high school, the empty nest looms ahead for you and it’s freaking you out. I’ve been there and I get it. Together, we’ll turn our freaking energy into freaking awesome energy.
Hello, my empty nest friend. My goodness, we’re at episode 8. I am getting more excited with each episode. My heart is full. Thank you for being here and if you’re enjoying this podcast, if you could do me a huge, huge, huge favor and take a minute to let me know by reviewing this podcast. It helps other people to find it.
Today, I’m going to answer your questions and with that I’m going to talk about imposter syndrome. You’re probably wondering why imposter syndrome? This is about empty nesting. This may help you. You may have never heard of it. I was surprised that some of my friends had never heard of it, but it is a real thing. I’ve had to deal with it often. My first question that I was asked, brings up the imposter syndrome for me. The question is, Christine, what are your credentials? How is imposter syndrome part of this? On psychologytoday.com there’s an article “The Reality of Imposter Syndrome.” In this article, the top description of it is a psychological phenomenon in which people are unable to internalize their accomplishments. Basically, it’s the feeling that you have gotten into a place in your life and you feel like a fraud, and you feel at any moment someone’s going to figure out that you shouldn’t be where you are.
I’ve had this a few times in my life, two in particular, is one, I became a Peoplesoft developer rather quickly. I seemed to learn things quickly and moved into a role where I had multiple people on my team that reported to me. They were all external consultants. This went from not being in a developer role at all to that role within about six months. Every day I would feel like someone’s going to find out I really shouldn’t be in that spot. The reality is I had all of the skills that everyone else did and just by putting myself out there, and trying it and doing it, that is what sometimes makes me feel that way.
The other time that this happened to me was in my balloon business, and again, very quickly I learned balloons, and within six months I decided to go to a convention and compete. I got, I don’t even remember, I think was third place in a up-and-coming new balloon award that was not exactly what it was called, but I kept thinking they’re going to find out I really don’t know what I’m doing. In reality, I knew everything that I needed to do to get that award, but there’s always that level of doubt.
With this question, Christine, what are your credentials? This hits every fear and doubt that I had in starting the business, truly. Even though, for the past ten years I’ve wanted to do some kind of coaching and encouragement role in my life. Ten years ago, I started it but kind of stepped away because of this fear. At this point in my life, I need to just do it. I am so proud of the people that I have worked with and the results that they have had. If you want to know my credentials, my credentials are I am an empty nest mother. My daughter is in college now. She went early and I am sharing my experience and the tools that I learned, with you, in the hopes that the way that I present them to you help you. If I can help one mother a year to feel empowered, to feel good about herself, to have a great impact on her children and her family, that is a huge win for me. That is what this is all about.
The irony is when I coach myself through this imposter syndrome is what I’ve realized is by not being who I really am meant to be, I mean, everything in my being feels like this is right. This is what I need to do. But if I were to not do it, guess what? That is when I’m truly being an imposter in my life. Isn’t that crazy? I know I’m not alone in these feelings. I’ve mentioned it to friends who had never heard of it and they were like yes, I’ve experienced this before. Sometimes you don’t step out and do the thing that you’re meant to do because of this fear. I’m sharing with you that I am here. I am standing here, in the fear, and I am here to help. I want to encourage you to be who you are meant to be, too. Got it? I hope that answers the question with a little lesson involved.
Question number two, Christine, I want to create a business, but I have no experience in the area I want to pursue. Congratulations, you get to learn it. Everyone starts somewhere. Right? What I want to challenge you to do, if this is a question of yours. If you have a business that you have no experience in, I want you to check your thoughts. Because I want to create a business, but I have no experience in the area I want to pursue, what type of feeling does that generate in you? For me, that would not generate a positive feeling. Changing that to something like I want to create a business that I know nothing about and I’m going to learn it all. Be really creative. Change your thought. Or, I have a business I’m developing and I’m learning every step. Right? I also want you to think about future you. Ten years from now, what do you look like in that business? What’s your life like? Then, I want you to work backwards. How did you get there? Really process that out. If you need help with something like this, my free program, it’s a seven-day program, you register for it on my website, it’s all about finding future you and it helps you to work through all of this. Check that out.
Question number three, there is a lot on my plate right now, Christine, how should I proceed? I am not going to tell you how to proceed. If you have a lot on your plate right now, first of all, check that thought, because the thought I have a lot on my plate right now, generates a lot of anxiety in me if I have that thought. Right? You could say, I have this to do, this to do, this to do and this to do. Whatever those things are. Pick one thing and do it. It’s not the wrong decision, because whatever you pick is the right decision because it’s what you chose. It’s that simple. You don’t need any drama around it at all. Just pick one and do it. The overwhelm that you are indulging in is extremely self-indulgent. There is no point to it. What are you afraid of? Just pick something. Just do it. It seems cliché because Nike said it but, it’s right. Just pick one and do it. You can always change your mind later. Just remove the drama and do it. Let me know how you make out.
Question number four, Christine, I feel like I’m in a funk with the realization that my babies are leaving the nest. How does that thought make you feel? I feel like I’m in a funk with the realization that my babies are leaving the nest. Of course they’re leaving the nest. It’s a beautiful thing. They are able to be independent human beings. This is what they are meant to do. You need to check all of your thoughts around it and realize, observe. Remember we’re observing our thoughts. Observe, and when you catch yourself saying something like this, I feel like I’m in a funk, right? Where does that take you? The realization that my babies are leaving the nest. That doesn’t help me, but if I feel proud that my babies are leaving the nest, right? You can change it any way you want. My babies are leaving the nest and that’s okay. My babies are leaving the nest and that’s what they are meant to do. My babies are leaving the nest because I did a really good job. Write some of these down. Play with them and find the thing, find the thoughts, the sentence, that makes you feel okay with them leaving. When you catch yourself in the funk next time, you can pull out this sentence and say it over and over again. Eventually, you’ll catch that funky sentence before it forms completely, and you’ll be able to change it and you’ll be able to see the positives. You have done an amazing job to get here. Really. Think about all the amazing things you’ve done. Well done, mom.
Last question, help, I don’t want to make any decisions. Who does? Because then you’re giving control of your life to someone else, which, yes, if something goes wrong, you can choose to blame them, if you want but what does that get you? You’ve given control of your life to another human being. Just make a decision and do it. It could be good. It could be bad, but life is good and bad anyway, so just make a decision and try it. I know, I can be a little tough. It comes from love. I just want to see you grow and be who you are meant to be. These are all baby steps.

Christine: You are listening to the Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, episode number 7, Empty Nest Prep, part 5, Putting It All Together. … Hello, my empty nest friend! We made it. This is the final portion of my five-episode series titled Empty Nest Prep. These five episodes are the base level material of everything that I teach.
Christine: You are listening to the Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, episode number 7, Empty Nest Prep, part 5, Putting It All Together. This podcast is for you, a mother who years ago walked away from a career to raise your child. Sure, you’ve been busy with volunteering, car pools, maybe part-time work and taking care of everyone. But your main gig, that’s been your child. Now, that they are in their later years of high school, the empty nest looms ahead for you and it’s freaking you out. I’ve been there, and I get it. Together, we’ll turn our freaking out energy into freaking awesome energy.
Hello, my empty nest friend! We made it. This is the final portion of my five-episode series titled Empty Nest Prep. These five episodes are the base level material of everything that I teach. I recommend listening to them in order, as they build upon each other and these five episodes have material that will be referenced throughout my podcast. For a quick review, in part one, we noticed our thoughts by picturing them as thought boxes being delivered to a house, which is our mind. In part two, we learned to observe those thought boxes while being kind to ourselves. In part three, we learned that we are responsible for our feelings 100 percent, and what thought box we open determines how we feel. In part four, we learned that our feelings create an action in our life, which create a result. I didn’t give you the very first piece of the puzzle. What? I know, so nice of me. I left that out on purpose. I’ve found that my clients get hung up on it when I start there.
What is this problematic first piece? It is the idea that your thoughts are optional about whatever circumstance you have. I’ve found the thought box story helps to set the stage for the phenomenal tool I’m about to introduce you to. If you’ve listened to all the episodes in this series, you already know four of the five elements that create this powerful too.
I introduce you to the self-coaching model. This model was assembled by the amazing life coach extraordinaire, Brooke Castillo, of The Life Coach School. I have not yet met her in person, yet. She’s no doubt my coach. I’ve been listening to her podcast since it started, or really close to when it started and it has changed my life.
Brooke’s self-coaching model has five elements in it that build off of one another. It begins with a circumstance. A circumstance is something that is indisputable by everyone on the planet. It is a fact. It is not drama. It is not full of adjectives. It is a simple fact that everyone agrees with. Everyone. When I say everyone, I mean everyone. I don’t mean everyone with the same views as you. I mean everyone. You know how your family can all be in the same room, someone says something, and while you find it hysterical, another person finds it offensive or awful, or boring, or stupid, or creative? Guess what? That reaction you have isn’t a circumstance then. Anything in your life that has the opportunity to be interpreted by other people in different ways is not a circumstance.
A circumstance is I am at home today. My child has a D on their transcript. My husband came home from work at 9:00 p.m. A circumstance is not I’m all alone at home today. My child’s life has been ruined by the D on their transcript. My husband doesn’t care about me because he comes home late. Do you see the difference?
By now, from our thought box visualization, you may recognize that my latter examples are thoughts. Thoughts that are optional. They may not feel optional, but I want you to trust me on it, and I want you to consider the possibility that I’m right. The circumstance is what triggers that bright light to suddenly shine on a particular thought box, and you automatically go to it. Are you with me? A circumstance happens. You have a thought. We already know that a thought creates a feeling for you, right? You sit in your thought box and sit in that feeling, which leads you to take an action, or inaction, and that produces a result.
The understanding of how those five elements work together to create a result in your life has the power to change everything. I’ve got to tell you. Now that I get it, I only wish I had learned it sooner. Gone are the days where I blame others for my feelings and for my actions. I will say it is much easier to assume that other humans on the planet are the cause of your feelings and actions, but when you blame others for your feelings, you flat out hand them complete control over your life. Right? That is not at all fun to think about. Imagine someone walks up to you and says you are a horrible mother. A spotlight turns on immediately in your head to a thought box that is labeled I am a horrible mother. You feel sad or anxious, or however that thought makes you feel. It will be different for everyone.
What if the spotlight shines on that thought box, you read it and you think, that’s not right. Turn the spotlight off and walk away to a different thought box. How do you feel? How do you show up in the world? What box do you want to choose and why wouldn’t you do that? Seriously. This is difficult because our minds flip on the spotlight continuously to boxes that we are used to opening. At first, you won’t even notice the spotlight. It’s such a strong pattern for you. Over time, you’ll start to notice it is on, and you’re in a thought box feeling all of whatever feeling is going on.
After time, you’ll begin to notice the spotlight as it turns on. A couple of times, you might even catch it before the switch to turn it on happens. It is a very simple concept when you understand it, but the work of it isn’t easy. It is worth every second you put into this. I hope you’ll join me because I’d love to see your life change the way mine has. Truly, you are worth the work, my empty nest friend, 100 percent.
In my next episode I will answer some of your questions.
The questions for this week are: 1) What are your thoughts about the self-coaching model and my visualization to go along with it? 2) What isn’t working in your life right now?
Christine: You are listening to the Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, episode number 6, Empty Nest Prep, part 4, Taking ACTION in My Life. … Hello, my empty nest friend. How are you? I’m thrilled that you are here. This is part four of a five-episode series titled Empty Nest Prep. These five episodes are the base level material of everything that I teach. I recommend listening to them in order, as they build upon each other and these five episodes have material that will be referenced throughout my podcast.
Today, we’ve made it to our actions.

This podcast is for you, a mother who years ago walked away from a career to raise your child. Sure, you’ve been busy with volunteering, car pools, maybe part-time work and taking care of everyone. But your main gig, that’s been your child. Now, that they are in their later years of high school, the empty nest looms ahead for you and it’s freaking you out. I’ve been there, and I get it.

Hello, my empty nest friend. How are you? I’m thrilled that you are here. This is part four of a five-episode series titled Empty Nest Prep. These five episodes are the base level material of everything that I teach. I recommend listening to them in order, as they build upon each other and these five episodes have material that will be referenced throughout my podcast.
Today, we’ve made it to our actions. For a quick review, in part one we noticed our thoughts by picturing them as thought boxes being delivered to a house, which is our mind. In part two, we learned to observe those thought boxes while being kind to ourselves. In part three, we learned that we are responsible for our feelings 100 percent and what thought box we open determines how we feel. Now that we have identified the feeling, what comes next? That would be an action. This is your action, or inaction, in response to the feeling that you have in a moment.
In the example from our last episode, we automatically went to a thought box that led us to feeling frustrated. I’d like you to take a moment and feel frustrated. I have no doubt that there is something that immediately comes to your mind, that’s in your life, that leads you to frustration. I want you to go there for a moment. Feel that feeling in your body. Does it make you want to take, or not take an action? Let’s take the feeling of excited. There’s got to be something in your life that makes you feel excited. Go there for a moment. Feel that in your body. What type of action, or inaction, does it make you want to take? That feeling brings up the action or inaction in your life.
This is what I want you to understand. The feeling of frustration may bring you inaction and it could bring you an inability to have empathy for another human being. If the feeling of frustration is with your child, in a particular moment, how do you think you show up in the world, at that moment? If the feeling of frustration is while you are at work, do you believe it is even worth your time staying in frustration? How much work will you get done, when you have that feeling?
I’m adding on to our visualization now. Head back to your thought boxes. You chose your box. You always choose it. Right? You have a spotlight on it. You get in it. You then, sit in the box wrapped in the feelings of the box, and now, there is an action that happens. Almost as if you become one of those ballerina’s in a jewelry box that spins to music. Really picture this. You choose the thought box. You get inside of it and you feel the feeling. It’s written all over inside. The moment you are there, the platform begins to spin. This is the action that the feeling caused. As the platform spins, you are moved to an action, or maybe, this feeling causes no action at all because the crank is broken. In the way I visualize it, the action that takes place and the music playing is different based on the feeling associated with that thought box. Sometimes, I’m not even a ballerina. You make this whatever works for you. It’s your visualization.
At the end of that song, when the music stops playing, it marks the end of your action and you now, have a result. A result in your life, that you created. I hope you’re following me, because when we put all of this together in the final part of this series, next week, and you work on it, your life will change. I’ve already said this in a variety of ways, but every thought in your life is a thought that you have chosen. It might be such an incredibly well-worn path to a specific thought box, that you believe it has to absolutely, 300 percent be the thought that you have to have in that particular moment. But, my empty nest friend, that is never the case. You chose it. You can fight me on this. That is absolutely a thought, too. Be curious why you want that thought.
The important question is do you want your thoughts to boss you around?Or, do you want to use your thoughts to create the life you want? This brings us back to the beginning. All of those thought boxes and what causes us to go into the thought boxes, that is what our next episode is all about. We’ll put all of this together using a tool created by an amazing life coach in our next episode. I can’t wait to share it with you.
My questions for this week are:
1) Are you with me, or are you completely lost?
2) Have you noticed anything different about your life since listening to this podcast?
Since you are still listening, my Early Bird Registration may still be open for my six-week, personalized online coaching program. I have only a handful of spots available, and this program will never again be offered at this low early bird price. Head over to my website, YourEmptyNestCoach.com and click on the six-week coaching program link on my menu. There you will find videos, testimonials, and even a printable about the program. I would love to see you there. Go check it out!
