221: 5 C’s of Self-Mastery


“Your identity is a blank canvas for who you want to be.” – Nick Onken

Today I share some of the identity alchemy that I have been working on and go into detail about what it means to master ourselves. These past few years I have been going through some major changes that I talk about.

I have been doing some serious work to grow as a person and I’ve been searching for a partner who is on the same path. Identity alchemy and the five C’s of self-mastery are helping me to get where I want to go. What do commitment, containers, and celebration have to do with becoming who are meant to be in this world? You can learn all of these things in your head, but if you’re not practicing them, they don’t get integrated into this vessel that we call our earthly body.

In this episode, I define what self-mastery actually is and share a list of the five C’s that you can implement in your own life. I also explain how to use containers and introduce my upcoming Identity Alchemy course.
