“Being Realistic” vs. Getting After Your Dreams

Hi, I'm Shaina

I’m a Clarity Coach, mindset expert and interior design enthusiast living in sunny Los Angeles. I help people get unstuck and create a lifestyle they’re proud of.

I worked with a client who was exploring her own future possibilities.

Her partner said to her: “just be happy with what you have.”

* k. where do I begin?*

At first glance, this THOUGHT sounds nice and even righteous. 

just be happy with what you have ???

But the subtext reads: get your head out of the clouds, be realistic and don’t be irresponsible.

Whether we’re dealing with our own logical brain or a highly practical person in our life, it makes it challenging to think beyond our current reality and reach for more.

Today, I share:

  • What “being realistic” means…and when it is a good thing!
  • The HUGE DISADVANTAGE of subscribing to realism (I talk about this in a way I’ve never done before *must-see*)
  • How to bridge the gap between reality and your dreams

My guilty pleasure is Bravo!
Real Housewives, Southern Charm, Vanderpump, Million Dollar Listing...I watch it all.
I'm a sucker for anything nostalgic.
I still watch reruns of Dawson's Creek on the regular
I know the lyrics to almost every 90's song.
Nathan says it's my hidden talent
My happy place?
Summer days. I love the beach, being tan, cookouts and country music!
Monica Gellar is my alter ego.
Cleaning and organizing are my therapy
I always have a candle burning at home.
I have a cabinet full of them.
My favorite movie?
Father of the Bride.
If I weren't a life coach...
I'd probably be an interior designer or do something in TV/ film production. Any chance I get to visit sets, I'm all over it!
