Very often people say to me, “You are so lucky… You have a wonderful marriage, a wonderful career, you work with amazing people… You are just so lucky….” When someone says this, this is the first thing I do…. (Turn the volume up and listen)

I am grateful for the success of my coaching practice. I planted seeds for the past 20+ years to allow it to grow into what it is today: I read about leadership at an early age, I put myself in managerial roles I was not yet “ready for,” I practiced coaching my friends, etc…. IN THE COMMENTS SECTION, WRITE YOUR ANSWER: What outcome are you grateful for, that is only there because you planted thousands of seeds along the way….

07/21/2021

Yes, the commitment to success is a choice, BUT success is not. It is the biproduct of a thousand different things. IN THE COMMENTS SECTION, WRITE YOUR ANSWER: Where in your life have you created success that, when looking back, you can see it took a thousand choices?

07/20/2021

It’s easy to say, “This isn’t where I thought I would be by now,” and then just be harder and harder on yourself. I catch myself doing it all the time… It’s a waste of time and energy and brain cells to berate yourself for not being where you thought you would be. There is great opportunity to learn from the past, but right now is the time to ask yourself: “Where do I want to go and what are the steps to get there?” It’s just like boiling water: it takes time to reach 212 degrees. IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW: Write down one area in your life where you are willing to start warming the water one degree at a time, until it creates steam!

Week 30 of 52 … What one-word intention would you like to set to help create positive momentum for yourself?

07/18/2021

Over the past seven days, what did you accept, that typically you would have denied yourself?

Contrary to the belief of our “busy” society, self-care is not a luxury. It is a necessity. What you withhold from yourself, you are also withholding from those around you. In the comments section slam down your answer to this question: Where in your life are you denying others love or care because you are currently unwilling to offer or accept this for yourself?

Contrary to the belief of our “busy” society, self-care is not a luxury. It is a necessity. What you withhold from yourself, you are also withholding from those around you.

07/16/2021

Serving others 20 hours a day achieved the opposite of what I would have thought, in ways I never expected. Do you have a similar story in your life, past or current?

07/15/2021

As we gain awareness of the fact that self-care helps us survive, the mind will reward us with more opportunities to show up for ourselves so that we can show up even stronger for others… Fill in the blank in the comments section: I am grateful that I exercised self-care recently by ____________________.

07/14/2021

I’m not doubting you love your family, children, and friends. But I am asking you to surrender for a moment to the idea that there is even more to offer . You just don’t know what you don’t know…yet. Take a listen to this video and either DM me or add in the comments section your thoughts.

It’s not possible to FULLY give a gift to others if you are unwilling to fully accept a gift yourself.
.
It’s not possibly to FULLY give a compliment to others if you are unwilling to receive a compliment yourself.
.
It’s not possible to FULLY give love to others if you are unwilling to love yourself.
.
It’s not possible to FULLY give care to others if you are unwilling to care for yourself.
.
You are the source of whatever you pour into others, and you can’t pour from an empty cup.
.
It’s not possible to fully give to others what you are unwilling to accept for yourself. I know this idea may push back on some things you have been told to believe in your life. The more this idea triggers you, the more I invite you to open your heart and mind to look for where those statements are showing up as true in your own life.
.
ADD YOUR ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS SECTION: Gifts, compliments, love, or care… Which of these areas are you not good at receiving or offering yourself, yet? And in what ways is that lack of being able to receive and offer it yourself, preventing you from showing up fully for those around you?

Do you have a comparable story?

07/08/2021

In the comments section, slam down a time in your life that you gave yourself permission to make a decision that served you, with no guilt attached… I’ll go first… Then you:

07/07/2021

Ask questions focused on what you DO want… Not what you don’t. Example:
In what ways can you … generate more freedom in your life?
In what ways can you … experience more happiness?
In what ways can you … live in harmony with your life purpose?
In what ways can you … feel more love?

07/06/2021

When I feel like I am stuck…
When I feel like I have tried everything…
I always ask myself this question:
.
“In what ways…?”
.
The quality of my life is in direct proportion to the quality of the questions I ask myself… And the same goes for you.

There is ONE breadcrumb I unintentionally left behind every time I set out to do something and failed. I DIDN’T ASK FOR HELP…. Can you track a time in your life where the house of cards fell because you didn’t ask for the help you needed? If so, add your story to the comments section here.

07/04/2021

The most productive and successful people I know have one thing in common, and there is not one person I admire who does NOT do this one thing… They all ASK FOR HELP… They all ADMIT TO NOT KNOWING SOMETHING… They all SET BOUNDARIES…. I bet there is a time in your life that you can identify a moment of growth because you didn’t try to go it alone. In the comments section, write down an example of a time that you went to do something monumental and you DID exercise your independence by asking for assistance…

07/03/2021

In the comments section put a number: On a scale of 1-5, where do you land on the maturity scale? “1” means you have to prove to the world that you can and need to do everything all by yourself and “5” means you know how to ask for help, you are comfortable admitting you don’t know something, and you can set boundaries…. I think I’m still at a 4 with occasional bursts of 5. What about you?

Gratitude gives you the opportunity to focus on the things you DO have in your life, instead of the lack… Choosing to focus on the positive allows you to start to become the CREATOR of your own life. After all, you can’t create from what you don’t have… So…. Answer me this in the comments section below: What did you focus on this week that you DO have? What did that teach you about yourself?

When you become the creator of your life, you get to choose your focus… Taking responsibility for becoming the creator of your life requires you to take ownership of things you blame… So, let’s give this exercise a twirl, shall we… Answer this question: What are you fixating on? In the comments section write down the lesson that you have not learned yet that is causing you to fixate. This exercise won’t solve everything, but it is a huge step to taking ownership of the things with which you are not happy in this moment… GO:

When values do not align, it creates incongruency. Incongruency creates fixation, fixation ruins sleep!!!!! This is my story of how I learned the hard way…. Do you have any stories like this?

06/24/2021

I don’t want to fixate on your fixation more than you already are. BUT… let’s slam down gratitude for something you USED TO fixate on but don’t anymore…. As we recognize that we can end fixation in different areas of our lives, we can follow the breadcrumbs and see how we ended the fixation back then… So… in the comments section, finish this statement: “I am grateful that I no longer fixate on ________________.”

This is one of my favorite sleep hacks when I find my mind fixated on emotionally charged items at night: 5,4,3,2,1 Sensory Exercise: Whisper 5 things you can see, 4 things you can feel, 3 things you can hear, 2 things you can smell, 1 thing you can taste.
