Awesome with Alison Ep. 35: How to OWN your life more fully!
October 26, 2017 Alison Faulkner

Do you want to be the boss of your life? Of course you do. That’s why we’re sharing our definition of “ownership” and how it applies to creating a life you love. We also share 7 ways to own your life more fully and the benefits of ownership in your life. Then we throw some practical application tips at you so you can start reaping the awesomeness of more ownership in your life TODAY.

We created this episode in memory of our 3-month-old Gavin, who passed away unexpectedly this week. And we continue to keep him with us in our hearts. We hope his short beautiful life inspires us all to live with more intention, love and ownership.

Here’s a quick recap of what we cover:

7 ways to own your life more fully and the benefits of ownership

  1. Eliminate criticism –when you are criticizing others you’re not OWNING your actions
  2. Accept yourself and what is – become more self aware
  3. Strive for humility – think of yourself less
  4. Claim your strength – do not allow others to take your power
  5. Be reliable – it will build trust from others and you’ll trust yourself more
  6. When you take ownership your life changes immediately
  7. Love your weakness

To learn more about what each of these mean give the episode a listen!!!

    I just read the show notes. I don’t know you or your family. I can’t imagine the pain you will live with and are going through. I will hold you all in my heart. I’m so sorry for the loss of your sweet Gavin.

    I listened to your podcasts when they first came out and then got a little distracted (mostly listening to Wheels on the Bus thanks to my 2 year old) and on Monday I re-found your podcasts and pretty much listened to them all. THANK YOU. I just feel so empowered and honestly feel like I can take on the world. I just keep texting my sisters (I’ve got five of them ) and telling them to listen.
