Is your teenage daughter a hard worker who gets frustrated and feels defeated when things don’t go her way?
If mind management sounds like some type of voo-doo, though you see your daughter repeating the same behaviors over and over, but expects a different result, this podcast is for her.
Welcome back to the Cultivating Resilient Teens Podcast where you can find the full show notes on my website, cultivatingresilientteens.com
Today’s episode is inspired by an incredibly ambitious, bright, and determined past client who knew exactly what she wanted.
But there was just one ‘key element’ missing.
And no matter how hard she tried, she continued to find herself back where she started.
But let’s not be too hard on her because the key element that kept her stuck isn’t a core competency you learn in school.
And standardized testing dismisses it, too.
However, this element definitely has an impact on your daughter’s performance.
So today we’re going to introduce the 6 most common thinking errors that may wreck your daughter’s confidence.
And, how to break free with 2 Strategies that work.
Let’s start with the 6 thinking errors the teenage girls in my private coaching practice say are the hardest to handle.
1.) Believing it’s always “All or Nothing”
All or nothing sounds like:
I’m never the one who gets picked to lead the project
2.) “Catastrophizing” her situations
Catastrophizing sounds like:
This is so stressful because if I don’t say the right thing, everyone’s going to think I’m weird
3.) “Shoulding” all over herself
Shoulding sounds like:
I should eat lunch with those girls because if I don’t, they’ll think I’m rude

Because if you take anything away from our conversation today, it’s that developing strong sense of self is one of the greatest gifts your daughter can give herself.
And developing a strong sense of self begins with observing your thinking habits and patterns and the effect they have on your behavior, choices, relationships and mood.
