Episode 128: Letting Go of Expectations

Letting Go of Expectations

Today I’m bringing on a guest to share her story of how to let go of expectations. Everyone experiences adversity in their lives and it seems like no person on earth goes through this life without facing their own demons. And I found oftentimes our demons can actually be a reflection of the expectations that we carry from ourselves. These can be ones that we’ve adopted from others or made up ourselves. And today’s guest has an incredible story. My hope is it will inspire you to stay the course and create whatever it is that you feel called to create. So if you’re facing some adversity right now and want some inspiration and motivation, sit back, relax and enjoy the show. 

Today’s guest is Elian Haan. I first met her back in my hometown, when I was an active member of the Chamber of Commerce. She’s full of incredible energy and she had quite the life experience. And I’m really excited for her to share her story of overcoming adversity from moving from the Netherlands to America and really starting over from zero. She’s always been a prominent figure in the fitness industry. In 2015, she started as a wellness coach at a National Addiction Rehab facility where patients stay for 30 to 90 days in recovery. She was asked to develop the wellness curriculum and help people overcome addiction through different styles of movement. She’s also a life coach who believes in physical healing and the power of energy and knows firsthand how body movement can have an immediate impact on anxiety and depression.
