Getting what you want from life really isn’t all that difficult when you make a point of asking yourself “what am I willing to do to get it?” The hard part is actually being willing to try anything and everything to get what you want. 

Unfortunately, until you are willing to get really uncomfortable in your pursuit of what you want from life, you will have trouble attaining it no matter what you want.

In this episode, I sha...

Practicing gratitude regularly is the key to a more fulfilling life and a daily gratitude practice is one way to open the door to living a life filled with thankfulness for all you have in your ...

Who’s doubting themselves these days? Are you saying me, me, me, me? 

Doubt pops when you begin to wonder if you are in the right relationship, picked the right career, doing a good job as a parent, or asking yourself if you should leave that organization you’ve been with forever. 

Doubt has a funny way of creeping into your life at the exact moment you don’t want it to because that it’s job. Doubt wants you to ch...

When I say that your relationship with yourself is the cornerstone upon which all other relationships in your life are built, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Yep, that’s a no brainer. Of course I have to have a good relationship with myself to have relationships with other people that are solid. 

And yet, do you? 

Do you have a solid relationship with yourself mentally, physically, emotionally? What about with money? Or y...

When you think of the words simplify and life where does your brain go? Does your brain say, yes, please let’s do this? Or does your brain say to you, hah like that will ever happen! You are a hot mess, your life is a hot mess, your relationships are a hot mess and there is nothing you can do about it. Nope, you’re going to live a complicated hot mess of a life forever. 

I know from my work that everyone on the planet needs help sim...

A thoroughbred is powerful, strong, with focused motion that generates momentum and pushes them forward. A rocking horse has focused motion but never goes anywhere.

Do you do a lot of things and find yourself always in motion but never get anywhere like the rocking horse? Or do you have a focus -- a goal -- toward which you have laser focus so that the action you take is specific, strong, and powerful?

There is a big difference betwe...

Perfectionism is just procrastination all dressed up. You know, a nice suit, tie, and polished shoes or an evening gown with pearls – clothes that you don’t necessarily wear but when you have to get into them it just doesn’t feel right? You spend a lot of time trying to make things in your life perfect and all that does is delay you from taking action in your life.

The curious thing about growth and change is that literally one thought or one action can change your life. For me, that thought was “I can impact people’s lives.” With kindness, with generosity and with an intention of being the best human I can be I can impact people’s lives.

And with that simple thought, I embarked on a journey to improve my mindset, improve my thinking, and to improve my skills as a coach. Growth is th...

I see it all around me. I see it in myself. I see it in others. I see it almost everyday. I see so many of you saying I do not know what to do. I do not know how to make a change in my life. I don’t know how to become the type of person I can be proud of, the type of person that I’ve always wanted to be.

Here’s the thing when we are dealing with being unsure of ourselves and not knowing the next right step. The next right ...

Leaning into your why is the awesome sauce of your purpose. And that’s when life gets super exciting because you instantly have something to lean on in hard times. When you question your passion or your love for what you do. Or the relationship you have. Or how you show up in this work. When passion and love start to fade, purpose is what can prop them up, buoy them in a storm, and keep them afloat.

Recently, I was in my weekly mastermind and someone in the group shared a fear about using social media. I get it, if you haven’t tried something before and aren’t quite sure where to start it can be a little daunting.  And then it got me thinking.....“What you fear the most, frees you the most.”

Here's something to consider, fears are just unprocessed emotions and in this episode I share something I am afraid to do,...
