Doyle extended the conversation to podcasting in May, launching “We Can Do Hard Things,” which was No. 1 on Apple’s list of top new shows.
Still, women frequently approached her on her exercise walks, messaged her on social media, and pulled her aside at events, asking the same question.
“People would ask, ‘OK, that’s great that you got yourself untamed,’” she said. ‘That’s great that you were able to do that. How do I do that’?”
So Doyle recently released a companion journal to “Untamed.” She wanted to call it “The Experiment,” emphasizing that no blueprint exists and no one has the answers for someone else’s life, but publishers scrapped it.
“Get Untamed: The Journal” has the tagline “How to quit pleasing and start living,” which has become an anthem among her fans. “I have stopped asking people for directions to places they’ve never been. There is no map. We are all pioneers,” she writes.
Before “Untamed” dropped in March 2020, amid the early unknowns of COVID-19, her initial reaction was to wait and release it later.
But the forced time out proved fertile ground for her message of stillness, of tuning out the noise and listening to yourself, “your knowing,” she calls it.
