Jen Hardy is a Neurolinguistic Trainer, Empowerment Coach, and Public Speaker. She’s also incredibly cool! I had the pleasure of meeting Jen recently in San Antonio and I think you’re really going to like her!
What is your personal definition of success?
My personal definition of success is being able to look back and regardless of the actual outcome, be able to say I enjoyed the journey? Was I who I would’ve wanted to be along the way? Did I learn something that will support me moving forward? Am I doing something that is making a difference in the lives of others? I feel like we all to often get caught up on and attached to the end result and miss the beauty in the moments it took us to get to where ever we’re headed and have gotten to.
Can you share the steps you take daily to improve?
- Get enough sleep!
- Be willing to look at where I need to take responsibility in any area of my life that isn’t going the way I desire it to since I am after all the creator of my reality!
- Do the inner work to discover what old patterns, stories or limiting beliefs are in the way of feeling aligned.
- Be kind to others and see behavior not as a definition of someone but instead as something interesting to dive into and understand better.
What is your advice for someone making an important decision?
Well, this depends on how you process information. Ask yourself if you need outside support to talk you through it or are you confident and comfortable making choices on your own? Some of us need support, some do not, and some need a little of both! I know I prefer to talk through what I am thinking about with others and get input but not everyone needs that. I would definitely say get really clear on the outcome regardless though. As in; What specifically do you want?? What will you get if you be/do/have this thing? What will you not get if you be/do/have these things? What will you happen if you be/do/have this thing? What will not happen if you be/do/have these things? Are you doing it for yourself or others?? It’s important to be self-initiated! I actually have a great list of questions you can ask yourself I’d be happy to offer your audience. They can DM on IG or FB to get it! I think we often again, don’t consider the full journey and all the possible outcomes. And sometimes we don’t necessarily need to-sometimes we just KNOW.
Tell me about a specific moment that set you on the path you’re on now?
That would be after completing a session with my (now) coach but then she was my mastermind mentor. She did some work with me where I released some “shtuff” I had been holding onto for decades in only 15mins… I immediately wanted to know how she did what she did with me and how I could learn to do it myself and for others!
If you could recommend one book for our audience, what would it be?
Oh man…only one? I’ll do this differently; for the men listening- “Daring Greatly” for the ladies “Untamed”
Unbound – A woman guide to power is another phenomenal book & recommend it often!
Which character traits do you value most?
- Curiosity/A desire to grow and learn
