29. How Cancer Transformed the Health Coach from People Pleaser to Peacemaker

Some people devote their lives to living healthy. That was the case for Liza’s guest, Deborah Herlax Enos. Deborah is a certified nutritionist and has been in the healthcare industry for over 30 years, so she was the last person you’d expect to be diagnosed with breast cancer.

Through Deborah’s journey, Liza served as her cancer mentor and the two reflect on how the experience changes women and what Deborah is most grateful for today. First, she stopped being a lifelong people-pleaser and discusses the distinction between being a peacekeeper and a peacemaker. A peacemaker can sometimes ruffle feathers, but comes from a place of empowerment and also stems from love. Moreover, Deborah re-learned how to authentically love herself, instead of loving the idea of what people think of her. You do not need a cancer diagnosis to self-heal and find self-love. Listen to this episode and start your own transformational journey of self-healing today
