Hello and welcome to SuperPower Mommas. I am your host, Laura Greco, and I’m so excited to have you listening today. Our topic is how to get what you want by loving yourself first. I’m so excited to have Nat as my guest today. Nat, can you share your last name?
Sure, it’s Couropmitree.
There you go. I love meeting Nat. I actually participated in a-five day, I don’t know if it was really a challenge or not, but it was definitely a series of times where we did meditative work for ourselves. What I really loved about when I talked to Nate about things is how he really uses the source of love and respect and dignity within all of us to really help people to achieve what they want but from a premise of love. So I want to welcome you, Nate, and so welcome to the show.
Thank you, Laura. It’s a pleasure to be here.
Okay. It’s Nat. Oh, no. I did it again. Welcome. We’re going to start off with our traditional question which is what is your superpower?
My superpower is love, ever present love and essentially the way that it shows up when I meet people is it’s like a warm embrace. It’s like this supportive energy that gives people permission to relax, to let down their guard and be themselves.
That’s so important in any situation, isn’t it?
So, when we think of those superpowers, how has that led you to the work that you do today?
Yeah, as with every superpower it’s not just meant for other people, it’s meant for ourselves. So my life journey has been about learning how to love and how to love myself first and not depend so much on circumstances or other people to be loved or valued or feel secure. So, it directly informs my work here. It’s my purpose in learning to live as love and I think that what happens to a lot of us, especially innovative entrepreneurs and even in our cultures, we learn from an early age that are love, value and security is an external. It is not within us and that we have to meet specific conditions in order to feel love, valued and secure in order for us to have what we want, and we spend a tremendous amount of our life and energy trying to meet those conditions so that we could feel those ways and then ultimately have those things that we desire.
Yeah, yeah. It truly does affect every part of our lives, right?
Yeah, absolutely. In relationships, if we believe that or learn to believe that we can’t be ourselves, that someone won’t love us for all of who we are, all aspects, the “good” and “bad”, then we might have a tendency to hide or suppress those parts of ourselves out of fear that we won’t be loved. It can affect our health, how much joy we allow in our lives if we’ve been taught that work comes first and play comes later, then we always try to meet that condition of always working first. But the thing is there’s always more work to do. So we never get in any play or joy. As entrepreneurs, if we believe that we need to be perfect or we need to give more or we need to prove or earn or not need anything in order to be loved and valued then that drives us, it’s this unconscious pattern that drives us to keep on trying to meet those conditions before we can get clients or be paid what we want or take time off or even have our own schedule. I mean, it affects every aspect of our lives.
