How To Use Your Strengths To Create A Resilient Life

Resilient people don’t shy away from difficult or uncomfortable situations that they know they must deal with to create the life they want. Take Susan for example. She came to me recently to talk about wanting to go from full-time to part-time work as a massage therapist. While she’s clear on her why — more time for travel and family — Susan is anxious about dealing with her client’s reactions when she invites them to move on to other practitioners. There are a lot of nuances to making this sort of transition, but two main areas are involved. The logistics of Susan’s schedule changes and the...

I Found A Tick and Other Reasons To Become More Resilient

It’s just a little, little thing, a tick, but, oh, how it focuses the mind. I found a tick on my forearm this past weekend, while I was down in West Virginia. (Or, West By God Virginia, as it’s more rightly called.) The first thing I did, without even thinking, was to start breathing deeply. I felt my belly and my feet. I probably said, “Oh, S#it” a few times, too. Just some things to get over the initial stress reaction. Because you see, I have chronic Lyme disease in my central nervous system, which they didn’t discover until after I’d had it for at least 2 years. So there are still...

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.

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

How To Stop Fear Of Failure From Stopping You: 7 Strategies For Moving Forward

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...

Posted by on May 9, 2017 in Achieving Goals, Blog, Changing Habits, Empowerment, Mindset, Overcoming Fears, Productivity, Self Acceptance, Self Love, Worry and Anxiety | 0 comments

Ever feel overwhelmed? When there are so many important things to attend to, you can wear yourself out trying to take care of everything and everyone — leaving you feeling scattered and exhausted. And often your own self care — and your hopes, and dreams — get bumped off your To Do list all together!  But don’t despair — everyone feels like they can’t keep up with their own life sometimes. That time is flying by and important goals always get put on the back burner.  And that feeling balanced and centered will never happen. I’ll let you in on a little secret:  the elusive feeling...

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...
