Jacqueline Hurst - How to Do You and Why You're Absolutely Good Enough
Show Notes

Today's guest is Jacqueline Hurst. She is the UK’s leading Life Coach, GQ Magazine’s resident coach and columnist, a teacher and a speaker.

She has worked with over 8,000 clients worldwide over nearly two decades. She's also a Certified Life Coach, Master NLP Practitioner and a Certified Health and Weight Coach.

Jacqueline's recent book, How to Do You,  became a no.1 Amazon bestseller. The book is best described as a “manual for life," and the title immediately caught my attention because of how mind boggling (yet true) it is that we have trouble being "ourselves". It's clear that life has a learning curve, and in fact, most of us don't even know how to think properly.

Let's ask ourselves: does it feel good when people like the person you're pretending to be? Why do we need to keep being reminded to be ourselves? What determines our worth?

Listen as we discuss:

  • What is it like being a coach?
  • We are not taught the difference between a thought and a feeling.
  • Jacqueline's struggle getting to where she is today.
  • How to help those who are struggling (and when to quit).
  • Her new book, How to Do You, and how it came to be.
  • How it can be effortless to strive toward peace, the ultimate goal.
  • Why affirmations don't work for everyone.
  • Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Not feeling good enough is almost always the core problem.
  • Why comparing yourself to others is fundamentally flawed.
