537 Elle Russ: Confident as Fu*k
How to Leverage Vulnerability as a Strength
We all take a lot of things for granted: Our gifts, our talents, our health, and anything and everything that comes easy to us.
Often, it’s only when something is taken away that we realize in our loss how much we valued what we no longer have.
Over time we also come to realize our challenges and traumas are our best teachers – guiding us to heal ourselves and others.
Elle Russ is on a mission to help people find their true confidence – and it’s a journey of self-acceptance. We all have things we don’t like about ourselves – things we try to hide from others in shame and for fear we won’t be liked or accepted “if they really knew”.
Elle found success super early managing hundreds of people as a hyper-charged tech exec by age 22. Then one day she lost the use of her hands, permanently.
Imagine for a moment not being able to … use your hands.
Today Elle shares her painful journey overcoming her shame, self-judgment and hypo-thyroidism along the way, and how it led her to write the books Confident As Fu*k and the best-selling Paleo Thyroid Solution, which has helped thousands of people around the world reclaim their health.
- Why the things we lack and the challenges we face are often our greatest teachers
- Why vulnerability is a strength and a pathway to true confidence and self-acceptance
- The courage to get out of judgment, particularly self-judgment
- How to overcome shame and imposter syndrome
- How to break the addiction to struggle
- Why what others’ think of you is none of your business
- How to go from foggy, fat and fatigued to fit, focused and full of life using Paleo and ancestral diets
- And much more!
