IT GIRL RADIO EPISODE #69: Don’t Put Your Happiness on Hold
Do you ever wonder why you don’t feel happier when you achieve your goals? Do you look like you have it all together on the outside, but feel like a mess on the inside? Do you fall back into old patterns or stories that keep you from living your dream life, no matter how hard you try? This episode is going to help you move past your success blocks, and kickstart your 2018! My guest on this episode of It Girl Radio is Annabelle Matson, a success coach and the founder of the Dream Life Academy and the Transformational Coaching Certification. A few short years ago, Annabelle struggled with feeling like her life was a mess despite appearing to have it all together. She quit her job and moved to a new country in the hopes of ‘fixing herself’ but realized that the change had to come from within.
I’m sure we’ve all told ourselves the same stories: I’ll be happy once I quit my job/travel the world/make $10K a month. But the reality is that once we achieve these goals, the feeling fades quickly, and we’re often left feeling empty and unsatisfied again. Annabelle takes us through why this happens, and how we can start being happy today, instead of putting our happiness on hold.
After transforming her own life, Annabelle decided she wanted to help other women do the same. Today, she coaches her clients to let go of limiting beliefs that keep them stuck and helps them to start taking action towards their dreams. How can you make this change as well? Annabelle has just the advice and tips you need!
If you are struggling to define what your goals are and what your purpose is or lack clarity in what you’re working towards, this episode will be the guiding light you’ve been searching for. Tune in to find out how you can make the changes that will help you move past your success blocks and get on the fast track to success, today!

ANNABELLE'S INSIGHTS SHARED ON THIS EPISODE:
“On the inside, I was incredibly unhappy. And I couldn’t remember the last time that I felt joyful, or happy.”
“This feeling of dissatisfaction — it followed me wherever I went.”
“It has to be painful enough for us to want to be able to do something different, to actually create a change in our lives.”
“I was responsible for where I was at. And I was the only one that could get myself into a better place.”
“It’s not a void that can be filled from external things, achievements, or doing or having, alone. It has to come from within.”
“What we end up realizing is a lot of what we want is already here, and I think that is really freedom.”
“Our true purpose in life is to be happy, and to be fulfilled.”
