Today, I’m excited to share another powerful talk from The Big Talk Academy Virtual Showcase.


I love these episodes because they give you the opportunity to hear from speakers like you who are on their journeys to taking big stages. These episodes also give you the chance to listen to the live feedback these game-changing thought leaders receive from me at the showcase.


This week’s big talk, “How to Use Maslow’s Hierarchy to Move Beyond the Limitations of Our Childhood Dreams,” comes from Stephanie McAuliffe.


Stephanie speaks, writes, and teaches on the human condition and the impact of our internalized energetic patterns. She specializes in personal transformation and multi-dimensional energy work. Founder of The Way of the Diamond Warrior, she’s an avid cyclist, nature enthusiast, and lover of art and live music.


In her talk, she explores:

  • What kept her from dreaming during her childhood

  • How she achieved self-actualization through external accomplishments 

  • Why external achievements are intoxicating but, ultimately, lead to disillusionment

  • The way she began trusting herself to dream again and how you can do the same
