Why Being A Dreamer Is The Real First Step To Creating The Life and Work You Want

Even though hard work is often touted as the key to success, being a dreamer is the real first step to creating the life and work you want. “Nothing happens unless first a dream.”  ~ Carl Sandburg How can you know what you desire, how you want to feel, or what you want to work hard to create, if you don’t let your imagination run free first? The answer is, you can’t. And if you don’t let yourself dream big things, you’ll probably only see a very limited set of options — safe options that may be fear based and may not serve you at all. “All our dreams can come true, if we have the...

3 Experts Weigh In: How To Make Time For What Matters Most

There are a few simple questions you can ask yourself — even on the go — that will help you take back your time for what’s really important to you. Summer is such a busy time it can be hard to make time for what matters most. Even the long summer days don’t seem to be enough for the extra time we all need and want.

This week I’m sharing the advice of 3 expert authors, each with a unique...

Why Play Time Is A Necessity (Cowboy Boots Optional)

My contribution to your life this week is to tell you why I’m not writing a blog or creating a freebie resource for you. It’s not because I’ve run out of ideas. On the contrary, I’ve got ideas stockpiled like eggs on a vegan farm. The reason is I’m taking some vacation time to P-L-A-Y! You DO take vacation time, don’t you? Time when you completely unplug from your responsibilities and give yourself permission to do nothing productive? Not to organize the garage or paint the spare room. But time to Just. Have. Fun!? I know I find that hard to do. Being an...

Posted by on May 16, 2017 in Achieving Goals, Blog, Business Building, Changing Habits, Decision-making, Empowerment, Mindset, Overcoming Fears, Productivity, Worry and Anxiety | 2 comments

I’ve been dragging my feet lately about some things I need to do for my business. Ways I need to put myself out there, risks I need to take to bring my business to the next level. I could tell you it’s because I’m really busy or because Mercury was in Retrograde and both those things are true. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was also afraid of failure. Does this ever happen to you? You have a great idea — something new to offer in your business, or maybe you want to try a new hobby, or go for a new job — and you think about it all the time, but you don’t do anything about it. You’re...

Feeling Stagnant? Surprising Ideas For Getting Your Motivation Back

Can I share something with you I don’t usually like to admit? I lost my motivation. I tend to “overload my plate”, neglect my self care, and then have to recalibrate every once in a while. This time I’ve been on “all out” for so long I didn’t even see what was happening. I finally got the message when I realized how stuck I’ve been on moving a few projects forward. Have you lost your motivation, too? Do you ever feel like you: Can’t seem to make progress on things you really care about? Feel like you’re going in slow motion? Can’t see clearly what needs to be done or how to do it? In this...
