Anna Wickham talks about “Quitting Drinking to Hear Your Intuition (How Anna moved from burnout to abundance)” in this episode of the Intuitive Leadership Mastery Podcast. Three years ago when I first met Anna, she was NOT intuitive at all. She was all logic. I was in her first mastermind at DCBKK 2014 talking about mindfulness, consciousness, and intuition. She later shared that she had no clue what we were talking about.
Today, she is totally different and uses her intuition freely in her business. Which is by the way, far more successful and happier for her to run.
Here is how she made this big change.
In this episode, we discussed:
Before - How not using intuition - Like swimming upstream, working so hard, burnout
After - ease, peace, accept oppotunites the universe brings.
Living her purpose - bigger than just making money
Making more money, working less, happier and healthier.
How to create time for Self-care gym, yoga, healthy food - and why this matters to your business success
How she stopped the work, party, sleep cycle.
Her Rock bottom moments -
- Hangover day when could not focus on work and her team
- Bad client situation - agency never would be profitable because expenses went up with new clients, failure
- How to not re-addict to another method to cover up pain
- Why being curious is key
- How she cleared perfectionism and self-judgement
"One of the things that changed for me during my "rock bottom" moment that I
talked about in my blog post is that I found my spirituality for the first time.
It has completely turned my life and business around. I am now living in my zone
of genius and experiencing more abundance than I ever thought possible.
I believe that most problems in society – drugs, obesity, alcoholism, workaholism, and even consumer debt and materialism – are all a result of us looking for ways to fill a void we feel in our hearts." - Anna
"The drinking part, though, was so much fun. Drinking was like liquid relaxation. It was instant relief from the anxiety that I thought I otherwise couldn’t escape. But I wouldn’t have told you I was anxious or even unhappy.
I didn’t realize I was unhappy, or that I was using alcohol as a “force quit” button for my overactive mind rather than learning how to turn it off myself. I didn’t understand it until more than 6 months after I quit drinking."
