How to Deal With the Backseat Drivers in Your Life

Backseat drivers are part of the Life Map language. They are people in your life that you have allowed to control you in some way. Notice how I said YOU’VE allowed to control YOU.

Think about when you’re driving and you have someone in the backseat telling you how to drive or which way to go. You still have control of the wheel, but sometimes that other voice in your ear makes you question your own skills and abilities. So sometimes you choose to listen to them instead of your own inner GPS.

Recognizing who the backseat drivers are in your life will help you set boundaries and remain authentic to who you are and what you want. We can learn the greatest lessons from our backseat drivers if we’re open to learning about ourselves through the challenges they present us with. We can uncover many unhealthy patterns in our life by taking a look at how our backseat drivers have influenced us. Once we understand the lessons in these encounters we can take that information into the present and alter how we communicate and hold onto our power.

In this weeks video I share a couple tools that will help with your anger and frustration when you’re face to face with a backseat driver.


The Secret Behind How These Ladies Became Dancers For Beyonce and Janet Jackson

I met dancers Kim Gingras and Mel Mah 7 years ago when they auditioned for ‘So You Think You Can Dance Canada.” As a TV Producer I had the pleasure of interviewing them backstage after they wowed Canada with their amazing moves.

I’m in such awe of these ladies and what they have accomplished since the show.

Kim and Mel became best friends during the show. Right after ‘So You Think You Can Dance Canada’, they took a giant leap and moved to L.A. Both of them were on a mission to become full-time professional dancers. Kim had a dream of one day dancing for Beyonce and Mel had her sights set on working with Janet Jackson.

Their motivation and persistence paid off and they both accomplished their big goal!

In my interview with these ladies they share the ups and downs of their journey, how they pushed through and how anyone can achieve their goals with the right mindset.

They’ve learned so much from their experiences that they decided it’s time to now help others. So they created an empowerment workshop called ‘You Got This, Girl’ that is dedicated to educating and inspiring young females.

There is so much goodness in this interview and I’m so excited for you to watch!
