Emily Reuschel is an elementary school teacher turned entrepreneur and thought leader. She cultivates personal and professional growth for rural women through high level masterminds and retreats, 1:1 coaching, public speaking, digital content, and her podcast: Gather in Growth. Her personalized habit challenge, #YouDoYou82, helps women build strong, attainable, and consistent habits to show up for the lives that they love. Her joy list includes red dirt country music, iced americanos, snuggling on the couch with her family, personal growth books, and long runs on rural backroads.
Today we are talking all about habits, personal growth, motivation, and making changes to become the best version of your self. These are the main things I discussed with Emily:
- How Emily’s past has brought her to where she is now
- How Emily discovered it was rural women she needed to be talking to
- A peek into Emily’s health journey and how it made her make a change in her life
- Personal growth and building habits
- Giving ourselves grace through change
- Motivation doesn’t always come first
- Emily’s morning habits
- Speaking as if things already happened/are happening
- Taking the one right step for YOU
- Emily’s habit challenge – YouDoYou82
A few highlights from this episode:
[6:18] – All of the things that we do give us the skills and tools that we need for what we are eventually going to step into.
[7:06] – I think so often we create what we crave.
[14:53] For the first time in my life I started taking care of myself from a place of love.
[23:13] – When we wait to feel motivated we’re never going to feel motivated. The truth is that motivation comes with discipline and intentionality.
[34:43] – One of the most powerful things in life and in habits is to do the hard thing and turn inward and figure out ‘what do I actually want’ and to be honest enough with yourself to know ‘what do I need in this season’.
