In this episode Christy and Rob discuss:

  • Why we should stop telling ourselves and others “should” 
  • How replacing “should” can allow you to feel free 
  • Language and our role as meaning-makers 

Key Takeaways: 

  • Whenever you say “I should do this” – it doesn’t feel good because we all want to feel free. 
  • Should you? Ask yourself, do you want to? Do you need to? Just changing the “should” to want or need affects your mind a lot, makes you feel like you have choices. 
  • Language is a big deal when managing our mindsets. We give words meaning, and when we give meaning, we give it power. 


“Small little shifts make a huge difference. When you say ‘I should do this’, instead ask yourself: ‘what are my options?’.” – Christy Whitman
