I love to hear the inspiring powerful presence you have. Keep up the amazing work, women need you!

It was a breath of fresh air. I began to realize that the freedom I felt/experienced on the coaching call was something I was created to enjoy and able to have in my life on a daily basis.

Vasavi has a compassionate and caring style of coaching with the perfect level of toughness that allowed me to push myself toward my intended outcomes.

What comes to your mind when you read that word?
For me, whenever I would hear the word change– I would cringe. I would cringe because I was so focused on what wasn’t working and what I wasn’t good at that I would spin in circles focusing my energy on unproductive activities.
Though what if, change wasn’t so hard? What if all you had to do was answer two simple questions, coupled with taking action?
Sounds pretty awesome if you ask me.
On this week’s Keepin’ It Real I break it down about the two questions you need to be asking yourself if you really want change in your life.
Once you watch the video, I’d love for YOU to keep it real about your answer to the two questions that I talk about in the video.
I can’t wait to hear your answers in the comments below.
Until next time,
Keep. It. Real.

Who’s behind the wheel in your life?
Is it the version of you who’s ready to hit the gas and ride off into the sunset?
Or is it the version who prefers to play it safe, and keep one foot on the brake?
For a lot of us, it tends to be the second one. This means our hearts aren’t running the show – our fear is. And that overwhelming, gut-twisting worry is what keeps so many people from going after what they really want in life.
So how do we break free?
Holly, this week’s asker extraordinaire, has the same question.
“Vasavi, I love watching your videos. Every time I’m stuck on a certain area of my life, you seem to send me just the right video of the week. Ok, so I have a lot of fear. I just want to kill it off. It stops me in every area of my life. I can’t date, I can’t take risks… I really want to start my own business, and every time I even think of doing it, I get overcome by so much fear, and I’m paralyzed. How do I get rid of my fear?”
Let me give you the bad news first: you’re never going to get rid of your fear. Ever.
But the good news is, that’s ok. What’s really important is what happens when something makes you feel afraid.
As author Meg Cabot wrote so beautifully: “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all.”
Watch today’s video to get clarity on what scares you, and how to take it on and win.
What do your fears say to you? How do you react? How do you wish you could react? Get real with me in the comments below. I always love hearing your thoughts.
See you next week!
There was a time when I didn’t believe in myself. I compared myself to everyone around me (with devastating results). I didn’t feel supported by the people I was with. My self-confidence was pretty much nill, and I found myself stuck in a rut I wasn’t sure I could get out of. Have you ever felt that way? Thanks to some amazing teachers a whole lotta soul-searching, I’ve finally got that negative self-talk under control! So today, I want to give you the tools that will help YOU do the same thing, and finally unleash your awesome potential.
Check out this week’s question from the lovely Lisa: Hey Vasavi, My name is Karen. I love your Keepin It Real videos because you tell it like it is. Thanks for not holding anything back. Here’s my question. I know deep down that I can do anything. But throughout the day I have all this chatter that is telling me otherwise. How do I start believing in myself? What do I need to do?
I used to allow other people’s opinions of me to dominate my life. In fact, I allowed it to dominate me so much so that I had no idea who I was. It was the “not knowing” who I was that fueled me to be who I am today.
In my last Keepin’ It Real video, I spoke about “how to be you.” How to be YOU, free from societal conditioning and following the status quo. I’m taking about breaking all the rules and forgetting about everything you have been trained (and brainwashed) to believe is “right.”
Let me keep it real with you. My fuel wasn’t always what it is today. My fuel used to be:
- always being right
- comparing myself to others
- being “better” because I believed I wasn’t good enough
- being inauthentic in all my relationships because I wanted to be loved and accepted
My fuel TODAY can be summed up in six words.
When I read this quote in Karen Salmonsohn’s INSTANT HAPPY book it hit me like a ton of breaks.
I had been using the anger, resentment, shame, and blame to keep me small and stuck. There had to be another way out. And then I got it. I got what I needed to do and who I needed to BE on cellular level. Being AWESOME would be my fuel. Being AWESOME was the permission slip I was waiting for.
Today, being fueled by AWESOME is:
- the greatest gift I can give to others
- my birthright
- my essence
- my choice
I can’t help but to think about what would have happened if I chose anger, resentment, shame, and blame as my fuel. It’s a daily reminder that I have a choice in each and every moment to be my highest and best self. I chose to make a course correction in my life. I have many accomplishments but the one that I am most proud of is the choice and commitment that I have made to be AWESOME.
You were born to be awesome. It’s time. The world needs you.
