I’M SO GLAD YOU SHOWED UP
My whole life’s work is to serve others as they begin to authentically show up in their own stories. We must not live in fear or shame or remorse about what has come to pass; that is how we arrived where we are today. Instead, we must learn to ask hard questions, challenge societal, religious, and other unjust constructs, and become the people we were created to be.
Welcome to this community. You are one decision away from getting back on the right path and living like you matter. Because you do.
NEW PODCAST FROMBETH FISHER
Remorselessly Biblical - Chat with Carrie Maldonado
The people that will tell you not what you want to hear but what you need to hear are the ones you should listen to. Beth is that person. She is not afraid to have difficult conversations with you because she has your best interest at heart and knows you can achieve more.
I admire Beth for her will to live, her positive nature and helpfulness. When I met her, I was thinking about my life and how I would like to change some things, and Beth inspires me every day. She really helps women and girls understand who they truly are, how to get self-worth and get stuff accomplished! These are the things she embodies and has taught me:
If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it.
If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no.
If you don’t step forward, you will always be in the same place.
Never give up, because great things take time. I can and I will.
Beth is many things to me. Best friend, shoulder to lean on when I need, one to listen when I want to rant and rave, sarcastic, witty, the smartest person I know, hardworking, energetic….the list could go on and on. Beth is complex in so many ways but less so in the ones that count. Like caring, compassion, supportive, and always there. She is the type of person to hear your favorite cookie in casual conversation and then surprise you with a homemade batch of them on your birthday. She is a survivor in every sense of the word – cancer, divorce, life in general. But, she never wears that on her sleeve. She simply moves on. Whatever comes her way in life, she handles it with grace and aplomb and gets past the challenge. I have never met a stronger yet softer person in my life. I am blessed to call her friend.
I’ve always had a respect and an admiration for Beth. I knew that if I were to receive coaching about some personal life decisions, I wanted it to come from someone just like her – driven and successful, but with a character full of grace, love and respect. After her book release at the beginning of this year, I spent a few months avoiding the inevitable. Me taking the step toward coaching would mean re-igniting a couple of things in my personal life that I had either allowed to lie dormant, or was buried below a bunch of “stucked-ness.”
Making the decision to start coaching when I did feels like it was a divine appointment. Truthfully, I didn’t know just how much I needed what Beth had to offer until I was in the throes of it all. What has started happening since working with Beth is what I refer to as “The Great Unraveling.” Putting pen to paper and allowing myself the space and time to address issues that I didn’t even know were buried “in there,” has been some of the most grueling, and certainly the most rewarding, work.
