The Courage to Choose Differently with Cameo Pierce – Episode 4

by | May 19, 2021 | Podcast

How do you feel about your health journey right now? 




A hot mess? 😅

You’re not alone! Those are common themes I hear so many clients repeating. That’s why I knew we had to record THIS podcast episode.

Today’s guest is someone I admire so much: my friend Cameo Pierce. I call her the female James Clear, but she truly shines in mindset, systems, and habits. Cameo and I connected on social media and have since been able to grab coffee in person, too. I always look forward to her message on holistic health and mindset and knew she needed to be a guest here on the Wholly Well Podcast!

Cameo’s story is many of our stories. She found herself the product of a messy life: steeped in poor habits, poor relationships, and a poor mindset. Several years ago, she decided she wanted to choose differently. You’ll hear more of her story in our chat about how she made the choice to change. 

In this episode, we talk about the courage to choose differently, what to do when you feel defeated in your health journey, and if balance really exists in life. I know you’re going to connect with Cameo’s practical yet powerful tips surrounding goal setting, social media, and mindset habits!

Key Takeaways

If you’re not changing it, you’re choosing it. A common quote but as Cameo mentioned, it’s foundational. We can either accept things exactly how they are or decide to put in the work to change it. While the change doesn’t happen overnight, we do need to decide this in order to take ownership over our life.

Curate what you consume. When we feel defeated in our health journey, it doesn’t necessarily mean we’re doing it wrong. It just means we’re taking in too much. This can especially come into play with the social media we take in. Just like we would approach our food and diet, we need to make healthy decisions to “limit our portions” with the people, content, and attitudes we allow ourselves to consume. 

Success happens in the micro. Setting goals too broadly can be another reason we feel defeated in our health journey. Make your goals realistic but consider micro goals. These could be things like adding one serving of veggies a day, putting your phone away 10 minutes before bed, etc. These small steps add up to big change.

You can build a mindset. As an enneagram seven, I connected with this deeply! Consistency and routine doesn’t have to be a natural inclination. You can build these skills by starting small and implementing small systems and small goals over time. A little bit over and over again is more powerful than you think. 

Consistency comes from systems. You can expect success when you use a routine or system. Whether we apply this to meal planning or workouts, finding a simple planning system can make all the difference in your ability to show up and keep going.
