Elle Russ is a confident woman who has written two terrific books to help people reclaim their birthright to optimal health and their best lives. Her first book was The Paleo Thyroid Solution, which is my favorite book for addressing thyroid issues. And her most recent book is Confident as Fu*k, the “self-help book for people looking to uplevel their self-esteem and confidence and manifest their dreams to live a happier, more abundant existence.”
Elle is a best-selling author, confidence coach, and thyroid expert. She is also the show host for New York Times best-selling author Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint Podcast; and she has a podcast called Kick Ass Life.
Elle is open, direct, curious, smart, funny, kind, and generous. And I am so glad to call her a mentor and good friend.
In this interview we focus on confidence and how to develop a mindset that moves you from victim to victor — or the empowered hero of your own healing journey and your life.
In this interview Elle shares:
✩ Her disability which led to shame, which dis-abled her confidence
✩ How shame is more debilitating than the disability itself
✩ The power of vulnerability
✩ The importance of speaking up
✩ How healing demands that we step up to be the CEO of our health
✩ How you can get more respect and better results with your doctor
✩ The ideal of being both confident and humble
My favorite Elle quotes:
“Confidence is the sum of the actions you take and the thoughts you think…everyone has the power to do this.”
“It never hurts to ask.”
“Step up, speak up!”
Can you see an area in your life where you need to step up and be more confident? What’s one thing that you will try this week?
Take good care!
