Anna Doecke: Director, Counsellor, Workshop Facilitator, Speaker

With over 10 years’ experience working with people, Anna suffered compassion fatigue/burnout. At this point she discovered that there’s more to life than constantly going, going, going and giving into the pressures of life, feeling like she had no power or control over her own life. Through her own personal counselling journey and the work of Dr Brené Brown, Anna discovered who she truly is and gained the confidence to share that person with the world. Anna now has a Counselling and Personal Development business helping individuals and groups to be more authentic and courageous in their life. Using Self-Care concepts and the research of Brené Brown she’s choosing courage, vulnerability and living life to the fullest.

We all want to feel significant and worth while, yet often the people who we put in charge of validating us don't do a great job. The thing is though, even when they do well in this role, it still doesn't make us feel whole. 
The key is to remove this role from anyone external and take 100% responsibility for being your own validator. 
Check out todays show to find out how.

Listen in as I chat to 2015, 2016 Australian Superbike champ Troy Herfoss. Our conversation is all   about the importance of developing internal success and significance reference points and ensuring the personal beliefs you hold about yourself are not limiting peak performance in any area of live. 

Troy has had a very colourful career not just on the road race scene. He has been the Australian Supermoto Champion, multiple AMA Supermoto Champion, X Games Silver medallist, Australian Supersport Champion, 2 times Australian Superbike Champion and is also and elite cyclist competing regularly at a national level.  

Results from a recent urine sample gave conclusive evidence that when Troy gets up in the morning he pisses excellence. 

It is a great privilege to have him as my very first guest on the insecurity project.
