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...

Overwhelmed? Scattered? The Truth About Navigating Life With Ease

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...

Finding Authenticity in Letting Go

Posted by on Dec 1, 2016 in Blog, Changing Habits, Decision-making, Empowerment, Mindset, Overcoming Fears, Self Acceptance | 4 comments

For the last 2 years I’ve had a huge personal goal: down size to half the size of the house I live in (or less). Actually, it all started about 6 years ago, when I decided I would be letting go of half of my belongings. Books and clothes were easy; I got stalled on furniture and mementos, especially anything associated with family. All my Mom had to say was, “It was your grandmother’s,” and I’d move whatever it was from her dwindling attic to my overstuffed one. Then I found the decluttering phenomenon, Marie Kondo and the KonMari method, outlined in her best-selling book, Tidying Up, The...

[BLOG] Help For Post Election Distress

Every client and student I’ve worked with since the election is dealing with some post election distress. It ranges from devastation at the election result, a family rift over political differences, fears for safety because of racial slurs and hate speech, anxiety over the uncertainties ahead, or simply media fatigue. If you’re experiencing any of these feelings, you’re not alone. No matter which candidate you supported, this election season and the turmoil it has unleashed, has taken a great toll on each of us, and our nation as a whole. I believe it’s important to recognize this fact and...

Why Everyone Should Teach Something

Why Everyone Should Teach Something

Let me tell you why everyone should teach something. But first, I have to admit I’m a teaching geek. I’ve loved teaching since my father made us a chalkboard by painting a piece of plywood with backboard paint, adding some trim and a ledge on the bottom to hold the chalk. I lined up my dolls and stuffed animals for “school” and gave lessons in the garage. But teaching is about so much more than giving information, and the best teachers open our minds and hearts by making us think, wonder, expand, and question, in addition to giving us the gift of knowledge. I believe everyone has something...

Are You Stepping Up?

Are You Stepping Up?

Can you remember a time in your life when someone or some situation called you forward, asked you to open wider, be more, give more of your true self out loud? Was there someone who saw your uniqueness, your spark of genius, and named it? Maybe it was your high school art teacher who told you to keep drawing, or a boss who encouraged you to take on more responsibility. Or maybe it was yesterday, in yoga class, when the teacher asked you to hold a pose longer than usual. Where are you being asked to step up? To step out of your comfort zone and put your unique self out into the world a little...

Why I Created A New Website

Posted by on Mar 19, 2014 in Blog, Mindset, Overcoming Fears | 1 comment

There was really nothing wrong with the old one. Everyone that stopped by beingandbecoming.com, said they loved its content and feel. Strangers, even, not just people who already knew me. So why did I go to all the time, expense, and, need I say, stress, decisions, learning curves, and hair pulling, to create a new site? One word: Authenticity. Not that the other site wasn’t Authentic. It was authentic and a leap of faith to close my school after 15 years and launch that site and a private practice. And I have loved every minute of these last few years. Working with people one-on-one is so...

4 Steps to Find and Follow Your First Nature

I’m an introvert. Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’ve had me as a teacher, or seen me on the dance floor, and you just can’t believe I’m introverted.  I didn’t realize it either, until I got to know myself and what I needed to stay replenished, inspired, happy, peaceful, and able to give my best self to the people and things that matter in my life. According to Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, “People tend to confuse shyness and introversion.” I asked myself Cain’s question: “Do you recharge your batteries when you are alone...
