This week, we talk to best-selling author, coach, and speaker, Iona Holloway. Iona was really an achiever early in life, doing well in both academics and athleticism. But despite all her achievements, she struggled with an eating disorder that was her ‘coping mechanism for survival’, as she would put it. She also shares how living with this struggl…
 
Who we are starts with the beliefs that we hold, what we believe is true of ourselves. What beliefs do you hold? What does your bank account say about the beliefs that you hold? What does your body and health say about the beliefs that you hold? What do your relationships say about the beliefs that you hold? Ask yourself, “What are the beliefs that…
 
My father used to say to me all the time, “Sandra, your success will have no meaning unless you bring others with you.” In my journey, I had gotten carried away by the quest for more and more – thinking that my happiness would lie at the other end of more. If I could just make more money. If I could just have more shoes. If I could just get the nex…

This has become her competitive advantage, allowing her to write…
 
This episode was taken from Sandra’s Instagram Live broadcast the day before Valentine’s Day. We are sharing it here because she delivers a very powerful message that everyone needs to hear. - The WORTHY Team We have been fed this romantic notion about someone ‘completing’ you. Who remembers the famous line from Jerry Maguire – “You complete me.” T…
 
It's really challenging not to feel overwhelmed, overcome, despondent, and sad with all of the things that are happening in the world. Oftentimes when things are going so horribly wrong, whether it's in our personal lives, or whether it's in the world at large, we often look to large solutions. We're looking for world leaders to step in and fix thi…
 
Have you ever been jealous of somebody else's success? Have you ever felt jealous of someone who achieved something that you wanted? I'll put my hand up because, yes, I have felt jealous of other people's success. As good little girls, we were taught that being jealous is a bad thing. I'm a preacher's kid too, and in church we were taught that it i…

In this episode, we're talking about boundaries! Why they're important, how to start setting them, and reflections on how we love (or don't love) ourselves. We kick off this 2-part series featuring my mentor, Lisa Carpenter, with a much needed discussion on why it's so important for us to learn how to set boundaries and honor our relationship with …
 
One of my biggest complaints about my husband is that he is the least romantic person that I know. He's not a Valentine's Day kind of guy. I'm always telling my husband, “You're not romantic. You don't do anything romantic for me.” But just before Valentine’s Day, he said to me, “I'd really like to do something romantic for you this Valentine's Day…
 
There's a lot of truth to the saying "pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong." In fact, pain is an incredibly important signal from our bodies that something needs our attention. So, why are we neglecting this signal? Why do we glorify our heightened pain thresholds and make being in pain the norm? Jake Currie, Founder of Mind Bo…
 
I love pineapple. I could eat it all day, every day! I'm always looking at ways that I can learn life lessons in the most unusual ways. I feel like when we learn things in unusual ways, it helps them to stick. One of the things that I wanted to know was how this gorgeous pineapple ended up in the produce section at my local supermarket, and so I di…
 
Have you ever stopped to think about all the promises or the vows or the commitments that you make to other people for the things you'll do for other people? Now, here's the thing. If Self-Love is the foundation of everything that you have in your life, if you feeling worthy to have, to be, to do all of the things that you want for yourself, what a…
 
I had an argument with my husband, and it set me off. I was so mad that I didn't speak to him for the rest of the day. I felt like I was put in a corner. You do not put me in a corner. This is my business, my thing. And I got all mad. I was unable to go through my morning meditation the next day because I was so mad… but I had to remember something…
 
What kind of friend are you to yourself? And so we're our own best friend. Think about what that does on a subconscious level. Do you trust you? Do you trust your own word to yourself? Do you have a friend or maybe a partner, spouse, relative, a co-worker, someone in your life who you just don't trust? They have made you so many promises and they n…
 
Too many of us are fair weather friends to our goals. I'll work on it when it's convenient for me. So some of us are expecting full time results. And we only want to put in part time work. If you have not yet set your goals, if you haven't decided what it is, that's important to you this year, here's your permission slip not to feel bad about that.…

We are so good at being kind and compassionate and forgiving to other people. And yet, it's so hard for us to extend that same kindness and compassion to ourselves. Sometimes the way that we speak to ourselves can actually be considered ‘violent communication’ because it's so easy for us to beat ourselves up – to be a bully to ourselves. Today, I w…
 
This episode is Part 2 of our conversation with Mary Lou Rodriguez. “Any time your brain can not predict how a new experience will feel, it will do everything to avoid it. It doesn't matter if the feeling is amazing. It doesn't matter what it is, your brain will do everything to avoid it.” Mary Lou Rodriquez is a passionate professional Master Hypn…

Of all of the WORTHY pillars, the one that is most challenging for me is the R – Reflection and Rest. For years, I really didn't see the point of looking back at things that had already happened because there was nothing I could do to change them. I used to think about the things where I had failed or hadn't achieved what I wanted to achieve, and I…
 
One of the things that we do subconsciously without even realizing it, is our habits of thinking. Most people have never really thought about the fact that your thoughts are habits. When I talk about habits, most of the time people think about going to the gym or eating healthy. Rarely do we ever think about the fact that our thinking is a habit. I…
 
It is a really important point for you to remember that your self care is really reflective of how you see yourself. How you treat yourself, is how you see yourself. We need to dispel this notion that self-care is this thing that you do once in a while. Self-care is how you treat yourself every single day. There are so many other things and ways th…
 
Is your self-worth really equal to your net worth? Do you agree with that? I used to think that. In this episode I share a personal story -- my journey on how I became what I am today. Self-worth and self-love, this is the journey of a lifetime. I truly believe that this is a journey that all of us go on, and we struggle with different things at di…
 
One of the things that I'm so passionate about is talking about self-worth, because this has been a lifelong journey for me. I am 47 years old, and 47 years is what it has taken me to learn that everything -- whatever it is that you want in your life, whether it is love, whether it is money, whether it is a job -- everything comes down to your self…
 
Watch the VIDEO of this episode on my YouTube channel: youtube.com/c/sandrachuma One of the questions that I get asked the most is, “How do you get your glowing skin?” Okay, I am not a beauty blogger. I do not play a beauty blogger on TV, or on YouTube for that matter. But given the number of people who've asked me that question, I thought I'd shar…
 
There's so much conversation right now about self-care, and yet there's really very little conversation about self-worth. I am going to make a bold statement about this: Whatever you have in your life right now -- whatever money is in your bank account, whatever your body looks like, whatever it is that you want in terms of career, in terms of rela…

I literally was raised in a mud hut with no running water, and no electricity. The aspiration for me growing up was that I would get an education and I would make something of myself. What I lacked in material things I more than made up for in terms of the love and the attention that I got from my family. One thing that my grandmother would always …
 
I want to share something that happened to me when I was at university. Something I think we often do, especially as women, is apologize for ourselves. I was at university overwhelmed by ‘imposter syndrome’ because I was already 40 when I studied Journalism in Columbia University. I felt like I didn't really belong, as a 40 year old going back to s…

Emily is an MBA graduate, a certified NLP practitioner, and also a certified Time Line Therapist. Emily shares her journey just after she had graduated her MBA thinking that she had it all figured out. Unfortunately, things didn’t turn out …
 
We are now in the home stretch of the last quarter of the year, and I wanted to share with you 9 tips to make these last 90 days, the best 90 days of the year. I'm going to start with a confession, though. This was about the point in time in the past, when I would put my life in cruise control. I've kind of convinced myself that there are only a fe…
 
The day this episode comes out is actually on my 29th wedding anniversary! My husband and I have been married for 29 years, but we have been together for 32 years. And I wanted to share with you some things that I wish somebody had told me before I got married, things that would have radically changed some of the things that happened in our relatio…
 
In today's episode, what I'm going to say may be a little bit controversial, so get ready ladies to clutch your pearls, because I'm busting a myth about affirmations. I’ll be honest and say I've been one to put affirmations out on social media. I love a good affirmation myself. So why am I saying affirmations don't work? Alright, what I said is why…
 
I recently had to move houses. People move every day all day, but it was a different kind of move for me, because this is the first time ever in my grown up life that I had moved somewhere smaller. All of my life I've been progressively living the dream where every time I moved, it was to a bigger and a better house. Now as circumstances would have…
 
I want to tell you the one thing that I know is guaranteed NOT to work when it comes to creating your habits -- and it is relying on Motivation and Willpower. Those two things are not going to help you build habits that are sustainable. So many of us are trying to get to a result, but we're not thinking about our habits in the context of them becom…
 
Whenever you find yourself in disagreement or in conflict, whether in a romantic relationship or work relationship, it's always a great question to ask yourself -- Is this important? Will this matter a day, a week, a month, a year from now? And would I rather be right at this moment, or would I rather feel good? A lot of the time the reason we want…
 
What would you say is the most complicated relationship that you have in your life? I think most of us would immediately think of relationships with partners, spouses, parents, children. But really the most complicated relationship you will ever have in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. It is so complicated, so nuanced, and the …
 
Sometimes the people who win and achieve big things are not the smartest people in the room. They're not the ones who have the best ideas. They're not the ones who are better than anybody else. They are just the people who showed up consistently. “How you do anything is how you do everything.” This was one of the things my father used to say to me …
 
I recently had a conversation with a mentor of mine, and I realized he had just dropped a truth bomb. He said, “You know, Sandra, I treat my life like a backpack. Every day I wake up, I pick up my backpack, and I put it on my back and I go through my day. And as I'm going through my day, I pick up different things, and I put them in my backpack. An…
 
“Sometimes we think we're good because we don't feel as bad as we used to, or it's not as bad as it's been in the past. We're still not good, we're just not bad.” My naturopathic doctor recently asked me, “How are you?” How many times have we asked that question? or been asked that question? I responded with my standard answer. “I'm great.” And she…
 
I sometimes get asked why I decided to become a coach. To be 100% transparent, I did not decide to become a coach, it almost feels like coaching has chosen me in some way. In fact, ‘coach’ is a title that I really resist because I don't really see myself as a one. My perception of a coach was someone who has it all together, and are now in a positi…
 
Recently, my team was able to track that our podcast -- which we had just launched a couple of months ago -- has now just exceeded 1000 downloads. In my mind, I dismissed it. And here's why. I am friends with people who have hugely successful podcasts -- millions of downloads on a regular basis. And so when my content manager told me that we were a…
 
One of the things that I hear most often from people is that they find TRACKING, triggering. People have a difficult relationship with tracking because they generally use it as a way to beat themselves up. Now, this is something that I can totally relate to. But what I know for a fact is that if you want to be successful -- achieve your goals, crea…
 
How do I feel worthy? How do I feel worthy of having, doing, and being the person that I know I can become? How do I feel self-worth? The dictionary says that ‘self-worth’ is ‘a feeling that you are a good person who deserves to be treated with respect.’ That is powerful. And yet so many of us don't feel ‘good’ in a way that we deserve to be treate…
 
How do I find my purpose? This is a question that I've been asking myself all through my 30s. And then when I turned 40, I had an epic meltdown because I hadn't figured out the answer to the question ‘What is my purpose?’ You see, in asking that question of ‘Why haven't I figured out what my purpose is?’ I negated everything that I had done -- all …
 
12 years ago, I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. And despite all my readiness and preparation, it did not go well. In this episode, I am telling this story -- a story I have avoided talking about for so long -- because it is something that has been coming up for me in a new endeavor. This story is a reminder to everyone, and to myself. This experience I sh…
