I am so excited to introduce all of you to Laura Noel this week! Laura is the founder and CEO of Stretch into Success where she works with high-performing leaders and entrepreneurs as a mindset consultant to help them move outside their comfort zone.
Laura has a really compelling background with a career starting in the military. One day, she had an epiphany moment where she got clear on what her purpose truly was in this world and ended up making a complete 180-degree transition into coaching and consulting.
In this episode, Laura and I go deep into the mindset tactics that are required to take your vision and your life to the next level. Think of this episode as working with a mindset trainer who is really going to help to pull you outside of your comfort zone and give you specific tactics on how to make that happen! Laura shares key insights around how we can live our lives full of purpose, how to combat imposter syndrome and self-doubts, which mindset pieces we need to put in place in order to become more effective leaders, how to discover our purpose, and how we can all live to our highest potential.
This conversation was truly insightful and I can’t wait for you to get the opportunity to know Laura and hear all of her incredible nuggets of wisdom!

BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women

Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation into my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics.

CALL TO ACTION
More than anything else, imposter syndrome is what I hear about when working with clients who are trying to improve their mindset and push their comfort zone.
What role has imposter syndrome played in your life? Head over to my Instagram @DrMeghanWalker, we are running a poll where we are looking at the influence of imposter syndrome as a marker for moving outside of our comfort zone in a positive way.
“[Allow] yourself to be curious. If you don’t know [your purpose], start somewhere [and] try different things.” — Laura Noel
“We always hear the saying, ‘Success is 95% mindset, 5% doing.’ … If you don’t have your mind right and you aren’t that person yet in your mind who has the goal, you’re [only] going to touch on [success] briefly and revert to your old habitual way of being.” — Laura Noel
“[Imposter syndrome happens] when things start to happen quickly for [us] … we’ll put the breaks on and the gas at the same time.” — Laura Noel
“Things [happen] quickly for us because we’re in alignment and we’re focused … but [imposter syndrome can happen when] our mindset and our self-image just haven’t caught up with us yet.” — Laura Noel
“Trust people who are doing what you want to be doing. Be an intelligent follower. Trust that intuition. And the reason why we do that.” — Laura Noel
“My purpose is helping people get aligned with their purpose and the power that’s already inside of them; helping them get clear and focused on their dreams, and living it with ease and flow.” — Laura Noel
