[NEW BLOG] Revealed: The Essential Ingredient In Any Plan

In my writing this year about the steps needed to create a successful plan for any project, goal, or your future, I realize I’ve been holding out on you! Not unlike when your grandmother gave you her beloved Christmas cookie recipe, but didn’t include the secret ingredient that makes them the best cookies in the world. I haven’t revealed the absolutely essential ingredient in any plan you make. I didn’t keep it a secret on purpose, in fact, it just became clear to me the other day, when I was putting the finishing touches on the Plan Like A Pro For 2018 3-Day Challenge, which starts next...

Mark Mid Summer and Look Ahead To The Future

Today I’m inviting you to pause to mark mid summer and turn to look ahead to the future you want to create for yourself. I’m marking a very special anniversary this week, as it’s been 30 years since I graduated from massage school. I’m celebrating in amazement that my deep desire to help and serve others has blossomed over the decades into an amazing career, not only as an MT, but also as a yoga and meditation teacher, school owner, life coach, and closest to my heart, as a teacher. It’s all been so much richer and deeper and more amazing than I could have ever dreamed. Join me now in...

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. Between traveling, house guests, kids activities, the lawn and garden, home repairs, and unique outdoor activities, it’s easy to just go, go, go and start to feel uncentered and pulled in too many directions. 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...

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?
