DeeAnn Lensen is a three-time best-selling author, award-winning advanced esthetic educator, master coach, and spa consultant.
My life changed when I realized that I was essentially living in my own little castle surrounded by a moat. The next level of success and fulfillment glowed just beyond the other side, and I kept working on building a bridge to get there. But I repeatedly gave up and allowed the bridge to rot after convincing myself that I was “too busy” for it and that I was okay where I was. Subconsciously, I was holding myself back so I wouldn’t have to face my insecurities or risk failing.
I am an international spa consultant and skin care expert, as well as a certified coach and NLP practitioner. I added coaching to my business because I realized that people go to the spa to feel better, and that spa staff needed to have an understanding of their own self-esteem if they were really going to be effective in providing that. Once I received my certifications, I understood that I also got into coaching because I needed it! It was only through coaching that I fully realized how my upbringing had created a set point for success and happiness. When I rose above it, I was accosted with unconscious excuses not to continue—there is safety inside the moat!
Almost every woman I know or have worked with has struggled with the same thing. They find themselves stagnating in their career or their goals, unable to find the motivation to move forward, or constantly running up against self-imposed roadblocks. They don’t realize that their ego is trying to protect them from failure because this reasoning feels powerfully authentic.
Want to explore your potential? Start with noticing the way you talk to yourself and work on replacing self-criticism with self-compassion especially when you apply your skin care! The messages you download are a deal maker/breaker, so upgrade your internal perception of yourself and watch your life improve!
Changing these messages on your own can be challenging, so if you find yourself faltering, consider reaching out for support. Something I offer that can be very beneficial is group coaching. In these groups, we support members to shine a light on their current reality & build their own bridge to the other side of the moat.
