Celebrate your wins! Celebrate your successes!  If you are in a community that makes you feel guilty about celebrating achievement and the good you are doing, it's time to rethink your community.  Stop dimming your light and diminishing the value you add to the world.

Jana discusses "Kindness" and the word "Nice". 
Dr. Wayne Dyer once said, "If you have the choice between being right and being kind, always choose kindness."

Jeff Bezos gives us, "Being Clever is a gift. Being nice is choice."

Nice is just a little bland. Its like "good".

A few years ago Jana and I created 5'x4' Vision Boards with some pretty wild things on them for each of us.  Most people would be shocked at how many of those things have come to fruition. 
There is power in intention and consistent awareness.

When it comes to people touching your body, are you more comfortable with same sex touching or opposite sex touching?  It's strictly business, but still.

Jana and I started taking Ballroom Dancing. It has been incredible. I can't say enough about it. We spent about half an hour talking to a new friend, Rita, a student at the studio. She's a widowed senior. I call her Senior Rita.

Have you ever not done something because of your fear of failure?  "What if I'm not good at this? I've never done this before. What if I can't do it?"

Billionaire entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist, Sara Blakely's dad had a tradition of asking her and her brother "What did you fail at today?" at the dinner table.  This encouraged the Blakely's spirit of adventure toward...

What are you not telling yourself when you say, "I think I'm going to treat myself today." ?  Are you telling yourself HOW you will be treating yourself?  You've been training hard, working out, and watching what you eat.  Go "treat" yourself to some ice cream, piece of pie, a double quarter pounder with fries and a coke. 

If you were a million dollar sports car, a racing machine, and you jus...

What time is it? The time is always NOW. Get aware of the moment you are in. Turn down the distractions and turn up the gift of the present moment.  You are exactly where you are supposed to be.  Learn what must be learned. Do what must be done. Take action now and focus on the task at hand.

Jana has a Freudian slip... who would have thought masturbation would come up in the middle of a mindfulness discussion.... multiple...

 “Is exercising, then, like taking an antidepressant? Not exactly. In essence, NOT exercising is like taking a depressant." - Even Happier by Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar

We don't exercise to add days to our life; we exercise to add life to our days.  Exercising, even moderately releases all sorts of happiness "Brain Chemicals", or neurochemicals.

Are you waiting on SOMETHING so you can be HAPPY?  I often hear clients say, "When I have X I'll be Y."   It's the classic if/then equation and it doesn't add up.  It is just Bad Math.

Are you focused on happy, planting happy, creating happy?  Do you have happiness triggers? do you actually remember the things that spark joy, that raise your emotional frequency and life vibration?

Are you spending all your energy trying to stabilize the world around you to create stability in your life?  Trying to "Fix" everything external ... to change an INTERNAL feeling?  Can we just rest in that question for a moment and get REAL?

Do you say "Yes" to EVERYTHING?  Is it hard to say, "NO"?  In order to stay true to your own Purpose in life and to be available for the best possible opportunities to live into your best possible life, you will have to set personal "Yes" "No" boundaries.

When you say "Yes" to 1 thing, you are effectively saying "No" to the 101M other possibilities available in t...

Which wolf are YOU feeding? Fear and Faith both exist in the imagination.  I believe fear is just poorly directed imagination.  BELIEVE is the possibilities over the probabilities.  March forward in Faith. Don't get held back by fear.

Are you excellent at offering to help, giving compliments, being there for others? Is it difficult to receive when others try to do the same for you?  Have you ever felt like the world is divided between the #Givers and the #Takers?

Do you find yourself stressing about all the things that you don't even have control over?  When we try to control.. we are placing unreasonable expectations on people and the world around us because the expectations are unexpressed expectations.  We envision how we WANT something to go from a singular perspective and then expect all the pieces to just fall into place.  It gets frustrating when expectations are consistently no...

In business and in life, we all want to be successful. There are times however when it feels like we hit a plateau or a ceiling for growth.  We've maximized our capabilities.  In the simplest form, that could look like not being able to recognize available opportunities because our capability to Think Differently" has been maximized.  We become trapped in our "sameness".

Is there an area of your life that you need to declutter?  Thoughts, Physical space, Emotions, Energy, Your Friends or Social Circle??? What you watch, or scroll through?

There is A LOT of noise in the world.  Is it crowding YOU out?  Clutter may be a sign of a scarcity mindset in a specific area of your life.  Clutter in your life also correlates to areas of our lives that are not organized and cause us stress and anxiety...
