Give me 30 days
& I’ll give you a midlife mindset revolution

(without having to blow all your money on retreats and workshops and therapy)

Have you seen the
Happiness U-Curve?

​It ain’t pretty for us
early midlifers.

We have more economic and social power than ever...but our satisfaction's at an all-time low.​


Have you ever wondered why?
 

Because there is an explanation…

 

...and it’s not because something's wrong.​

 

 

As 35-50-year-olds, we're likely caught in a web of:

 

Frustration about change...both the kind that's happening (collagen) and the kind that's not (career);

 

Fear about regret and uncertainty (Is there more to look back on than forward to?); and

 

Feeling overwhelmed by responsibility (Kids, parents, money...oh my!).

 

It's all slowly eroding our satisfaction...

 

and something's gotta give.

Do you wonder,
"Is this all there is?"

 

But also think this business of having it all seems like an impossible standard?

 

I feel you. And I have good news:

 

You. Don't. Have. To. Participate.

 

I had the early midlife ennui coupled with the "Wait, that's impossible...and I just feel like crap striving for it!" light bulb moment about having it all:

 

We can't achieve our way out of self-criticism to more satisfaction.

 

It all starts with
self-love
self-acceptance.

(this isn't just a platitude...the science of self-acceptance is fascinating)

Before SELF-LOVE…
Before SELF-CONFIDENCE…

Before SELF-WORTH…
Before SELF-ESTEEM…

We need
SELF-ACCEPTANCE.

Self-acceptance is core to our health, relationships, and early midlife satisfaction.

 

Research shows it's:

 

The habit that makes us most happy, even compared to being positive, learning new things, and being part of something bigger;

 

The cornerstone of our psychological wellbeing, with a supportive role in depression, anxiety, negative body image, and disordered eating; and

 

The most powerful habit for life satisfaction...yet the habit we practice least.

Big Ol' Buts:
Got barriers to more satisfaction?

 

Accepting ourselves is such an abstract idea if no one’s ever guided us through how to do it. There are roadblocks galore and instead of accepting ourselves, we except ourselves:

  • Berating ourselves for mistakes;

  • Chastising ourselves for not doing the things we think we “should” do;

  • Fighting with unwanted thoughts;

  • Wrestling with traumatic memories;

  • Getting irritated by bodily aches and pains.

For decades, we've been taught how to think in ways that diminish and devalue us...all while aspiring to "have it all."

We think these thoughts, and they seem like they’re our thoughts.

 

But they aren’t. They're outside messages we've internalized and don’t know how to recognize or change. All the effortall the achievingin the world isn’t going to change that. And what happens?

  • We play small and don’t go after our dreams because "What if I fail?" and "What will people think?"
  • We dislike our bodies, which just want to support us.
  • We stay in relationships that don't serve us.
  • We care more about what others think than what we think...especially of ourselves.

By the time we reach 35-50, we've spent decades denying our authentic selves and desires again and again...all to win some prize that never comes.


And when we’re dissatisfied, what do we do to feel better?

We spend money and time on stuff that doesn’t help us actually feel satisfied in the long run.

 

True story: I love a good Athleta splurge as much as anyone. But some new athleisure wear isn’t going to solve my satisfaction problem when that problem is caused by my thought that I’m not fit enough to be rockin' this gear.

 

Right? Right.


That’s why investing in mastering my middlescence has been my best investment...ever.

 

INTRODUCING

The Middlescence
Masterclass

A 4-week live coaching party
to build the best relationship

with yourself

Insight that demystifies midlife

Personal inquiry that digs deep

Science-backed liberation that helps you grow

Liberate yourself from the inside out.

 

Here's what it looks like...

  • Not caring if your boss or family or friends are happy with you because you're satisfied with yourself and don't need to control what others think of you.
  • Not feeling guilty as a working parent because you're doing an amazing job and can be present for all parts of your life.
  • Not caring if that Bumble date is attracted to you because you know you're worthy and have no room for insecurity in your life.
  • Not caring if others think you're too much, too opinionated, too loud, too whatever...because you might be all those things...and they're wonderful.

 

Here's how...

 

MODULE 1: Exploring My Middlescence

While the prevalence of midlife crises is exaggerated, the 40s funk is real (remember that darn Happiness U-Curve). Explore the unique challenges of middlescence (a.k.a., “the puberty of adulthood”), cut through common midlife myths, and get clear about what plagues you.

 

 

MODULE 2: Embracing My "Self”

After decades on the self-improvement hamster wheel, liberate yourself through the science and skills of self-acceptance. Release your inner critic, identify the symptoms and consequences of your conditional self-worth, and create a more accepting stance toward yourself (that often serves as a catalyst for lasting change).

 

 

MODULE 3: Coaching Myself

Most of us ignore what’s going on in our mind and lack the tools to use it purposefully or channel our resources accordingly. Identify and understand the thoughts and emotions that compromise and/or create your results, and learn a cognitive science-based system for processing them (and coaching yourself) to create more life satisfaction.

 

 

MODULE 4: Reclaiming My Life

As part of the "Is this all there is?" ennui, we all have stories that keep us stuck in a cycle of fear, frustration, and feeling overwhelmed. Learn how to rewrite your past and reprogram your brain to feel completely different about where you’ve been, where you are today, AND where you’re going.

Create a better relationship

with yourself.

 

Struggling with "Is this all there is?" If so, it’s tough to love yourself, be present for others, or Make. Positive. Changes. In. Your. Life.

 

I can help you with all of it.

 

The Middlescence Masterclass is a cognitive science-based process with tools for you to feel satisfied, regardless of circumstance.

 

Heads up: It's not about "fixing" anything.

 

When you can be with and move past difficult thoughts and feelings, you're standing on a powerful foundation for making lasting change.

I know this 'cuz I lived it.

 

Eventually, in my quest to feel better amid a flurry of bullsh*t (and to “fix” myself because I still thought I needed fixing), I sought coaching.

 

It was powerful. So powerful I then got certified as a coach.

 

The tools I learned to shift my thought patterns, and feel and release my emotions transformed me during a time of major upheaval (some might call it a midlife crisis...not me).

 

As I started to help other 30- and 40-somethings, I clearly saw alarming consistencies among the challenges of my clients. Contrary to being unique or random, they were the product of decades of messages and socialization that've prescribed how to think about ourselves.

 

No matter how many degrees or promotions earned...

 

No matter how many material possessions acquired...

 

No matter how many relationships solidified...

 

We're not taught how to think a thought purposefully to help create the satisfaction we seek.

 

And by early midlife, we're starting to notice what's missing...but we're lacking the resources to properly address it.

 

We ALL need concrete, effective help getting negative messages out of our minds for good to create new levels of self-acceptance, courage, joy, and satisfaction. The kind we'd always imagined was possible for others…but not for us.

 

But knowing intellectually about all this stuff doesn’t translate into satisfaction.

Enter:

The Middlescence Masterclass

 

A 4-week group coaching experience to develop the knowledge, mindset, and skills to create lasting, unconditional life satisfaction

 

 

Because the world is always coming at you with new challenges.

 

But now you can have the tools to handle whatever comes your way.
 

Anytime. Anywhere. For anything.

 

You can solve your frustration/fear/feeling overwhelmed once and for all for a fraction of what you’d spend on retreats and workshops during the span of your life.

 

The best part? This stuff is science-backed to work.

If you're here, you already know you're interested.

 

That said, The Middlescence Masterclass is for you if you're:

  • Your own harshest critic;
  • Stuck in unwanted or difficult thoughts and feelings;
  • Thinking your life's a "problem" to be solved; or
  • Wondering if this is as good as life gets.

Join today.

Insight that demystifies midlife.

Personal inquiry that digs deep.

Science-backed liberation that helps you grow.




 

During The Middlescence Masterclass, you’ll start noticing that you feel more chill.

  • You're kinder toward yourself.
  • Your emotions aren’t a rollercoaster ride.
  • You're more courageous with acting on your abilities.
  • You’re spending less time feeling badly during Instagram comparisonitis and more time gaining clarity about the power of managing your mind.

 

After The Middlescence Masterclass, you’ll realize it’s been a while since you were flogging yourself.

  • You're less judgmental toward everyone...including yourself.
  • You're more composed when something unexpected happens, because you can handle it.
  • You see your reflection in the mirror and surprise yourself by thinking, “I look good!”

 

After another month of putting the skills of The Middlescence Masterclass to practice, you're consistently coaching yourself.

  • You’re naturally thinking more helpful thoughts...and when you look back at your thoughts from month 1, you don't even recognize some of them.
  • You show up in your career as the rockstar you always knew you could be.
  • You're the magnetic, loving, courageous person you've always wanted to be.
  • Most importantly, you’re excited for the future because you're proud of the work you’ve already done and you're ready to live what matters most to you.

What's included?

 

Weekly Teaching Sesh

 

Each module features a series of pre-recorded video/audio lessons I post weekly, for you to watch/listen to at any time. These include insights created just for this group that'll have you wondering, "How did I get up every morning without knowing this before?"

 

 

Live Coaching

 

I offer weekly live coaching (hot-seat style). You’ll have the chance to submit your questions in advance. I’ll help you answer them, and may use them to springboard into surprise teaching nuggets, too. I often do.

 

 

Playbook

 

The workbook's more fun cousin, this playbook is full of prompts for our time together, as well as science-backed tools and exercises to reinforce what you're learning.

 

 

The Bullshift Self-Coaching Model

 

 The Bullshift Self-Coaching Model is a cognitive science-based tool you'll learn during the program that helps you change your thoughts about yourself and the world on purpose, to create the feelings, actions, and results you want in your life.

 

 

Community

 

 Connect with your fellow early midlifers and stay on top of announcements. Sometimes, it's easier to remember and keep engaged in something when it pops up on Facebook...since you're in there all the time, even though you said you wouldn't be this year. #nojudgment

 

 

Lifetime Access

 

And after that? The sky's the limit. And the one thing you know for sure is that The Middlescence Masterclass will ground you in the skills you need to live what matters most.

I see you,
midlife superstar.

How much is not joining costing you?

 

Do you throat punch yourself for feeling frustrated?

 

Are you spending too much energy fearing the unknowns?

 

Do you feel overwhelmed by all the things?

 

We all have core values...like caring for and connecting with loved ones, learning and growing, and engaging in fun and nourishing activities.

 

Often what gets in the way of us pursuing these core values are unwanted or difficult thoughts, feelings, memories, and bodily sensations.

 

These are the hidden costs no one tells us about. We're paying the personal, emotional, and social tax when we don't learn a new way to think about and for ourselves.

Questions?
I've got answers.

What happens when I join?

You'll get one email from me right away. The program starts Monday, August 5th. Leading up to it, you'll receive reminders for when the program goes live. Starting August 5th, we'll connect weekly (lessons, coaching, tools, and more!) for an intensive and powerful month.

 

Can I have an in-depth conversation or 1:1 coaching with you?

The Middlescence Masterclass is a great option if you face persistent personal challenges. This program is foundational to a 1:1 relationship with me...you even get a 30-minute solo session with me during this experience. If you're interested in becoming a private coaching client right away, I require an application. Email hello (at) meghankrause.com to learn more about becoming a private client.

 

What if I want to cancel?

You can cancel within 14 days by sending an email to hello (at) meghankrause.com to request your refund.

 

Does this work?

Yes, it works when you set aside time several times a week to develop your skills in mastering your middlescence.

 

Other questions?

Email hello (at) meghankrause.com and I'll get back to you sharpish.

But life's already “full and rich.”
(said with a hint of distress)

 

The reason you’re frustrated about change isn’t actually your collagen (or lack thereof) or career.


The reason you fear regret and uncertainty isn’t actually grounded in reality.


The reason you’re feeling overwhelmed isn’t actually your job, your kids, your friends, or your hobbies.


It’s your mind.

 

When you don’t know how to create and honor boundaries...

 

When you’re constantly worried what others think...

 

When you take on things out of guilt or obligation or appearances...

 

...you know what happens?

 

You're frustrated, fearful, and feeling overwhelmed.
All. The. Time. (claps in between for emphasis).

 

And you're still wondering, "Is this all there is?"


The answer: "No...there's The Middlescence Masterclass."

 

When you manage your mind, you'll always have plenty of courage to do what you want to do...and to discard the junk.


Okay...it's time to get started on your more satisfying lifetogether.
