Welcome to the Be That 1% Podcast Experience!

Welcome to episode 40 with Carly Benson who is a recovery and holistic life coach, yoga instructor, event curator, podcast host, and writer. In this episode Carly shares with us her passion for living intentionally, the path she was headed down before she realized she was meant to accomplish more in life, and how having a willingness to want more for yourself is more important than having willpower.

Key Take Aways 

  • Everyone struggles with the “what are people going to think” syndrome
  • Being intentional means being honest
  • “It’s not about willpower, it’s about willingness”
  • Living a life out of the norm takes doing what 99% of people won’t do
  • The more you set intentions, the more clear you will become about the path you’re headed down
  • You have to be able to cheer for yourself
