Tell us a little bit about you, Kirsten Roberts, and what you do.
I’m an Aussie and work all over the world. I work with women to really allow them to peel away all the layers of beliefs that are keeping them stuck. There are so many amazing women in this world who have so much potential inside of them. They are always showing up doing things for everybody else, their job, the school council, the kids, sporting clubs. They justmake things happen. Yet when it comes to saying this is my dream, I really want to go after this, I really know that I have more in me, I have the capability to have a bigger impact for my family and on myself, we tend to stall. So many women just stall because they don’t believe they are good enough or they feel guilty for wanting more. They think they should be happy with their gorgeous children where they are in life. We help peel that back, get clear on what their dreams are, and then set about making that happen again and that impacts their entire life.
How did you get where you are?
I was absolutely this woman. It wasn’t until I was 40 that I really found myself. Anybody who is listening and you hit 40 and you’re frustrated, don’t be frustrated. There is still so much time in your life to go after your potential. I was in consulting atr an accounting firm and all my life I have felt like that there is something more that I’ve got to do. I have been restless of jump from job to job. I have been never really settled or satisfied but didn’t really know what it was. I didn’t really know what I was capable of, in a way as well. When I did finally take the leap into this business with no safety net, no 6-month savings, I worked on my beliefs and it was like a whole new world has opened up to me. It’s magnificent.
What fears do you see stopping women most often?
The most common one is fear. “What if I fail?” “What if I fail my family?” “What if I fail bringing the money in to help pay the mortgage?” It comes from a feeling of not being good enough, not trusting ourselves. Another big one is, “What if I succeed?” “What if I succeed and I get so busy it takes me away from my family? “ “What if I succeed and I make a lot of money?” The third one is, “I just don’t compare.”
Are there specific things that you work with your clients to move past those fears?
There is a number of things that we do to move past those fears. One of the big things that anybody can do is getting them out of their head and onto paper.
Share the story on how your Radical Life live event unfolded.
My dream is to bring the game changing voices of the world, women of the world together, so collectively our voices become stronger. It’s this amazing collection of voices about the whole woman that allows us to just to see how we can drop the mask, how we can see with our dreams are, how we can trust ourselves and just go for it.
Do you think you can honestly be happy and successful without doing inner work?
My view is no. After seeing what’s on the other side, I would say the people are happy to exist and they believe that level of happiness is okay. I might get some beautiful children, we’re saving for a holiday, we sort of live for our holidays, we can’t wait for the weekends to roll around, but everyday feels like Groundhog Day over and over again. Some people will say, “I’m happy. We’re doing okay.” When you actually say what it feels like when you can just totally show up as yourself, live free of judgment, not worry about what people are thinking of you , go after what makes you happy, you are more connected with your family. You view life differently, you laugh more. That’s where true happiness lies, but we don’t often know that’s there.
