Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money in order to do more of what they want so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you really need to do in order to have what you want. I couldn’t have said this any better! This wisdom is from Margaret Young. My coaching challenge for you? This weekend, be bolder. Be more true to yourself. Do what you love. Pay attention to how your life flows and what comes to you.Read More

Spring! Glorious Spring.
Things are beginning to green up again and the shoots of daffodils, tulips, and crocus are pushing their way out of the dark, cool ground.
Over the weekend, my husband and I took stock of what the effects of winter winds,snow & ice storms created in our own backyard.
Tons of debris was left over from this past season.
Dead wood, fallen branches, and moldy leaves needed to be cleared.
As we all know, we’ve got to clear out the old so the new can come in. And for new growth to take hold and flourish, as garden experts tell you, the old dead “stuff” must be collected and removed.
What clutter have you accumulated in this past season?
What stands in the way of your dreams, your goals, and your version of your ideal business and life?
What are your dreams? Do you long to write and publish your own book? Paint in watercolors? Write a screenplay that will be adapted into a blockbuster movie? Break the 7 figure mark?
What is the “stuff” that is cramping your style your style, holding you back from realizing your dreams and goals?
Napoleon Hill was quoted to say, “If your mind can conceive it, and you believe it, you can achieve it.” In order for your personal garden to grow and thrive, for you to live the life you were meant to live, it is so crucial to identify and RELEASE the mental & physical clutter that holds you back.
Spring clean your attitudes, resentment, attachments, fears,limiting beliefs and doubts and watch how clearing this clutter brings you an abundance of opportunities, cash, and new connections.Read More
Doing what's most important & letting go of all the rest
Join the club. ( There’s are a lot of members!)
Try this experiment today: Ask everybody you meet today: “how are you?”
The probability is extremely high that you will hear:
“Ok…., but I am really swamped.”
“I can’t seem to get “it”( fill in the blank) all done.”
“I just don’t have enough time. ”
We are all swimming, some of us drowning in the sea of “too much” Too much to do, too much to process, too many people to respond to, too many things to read, do, execute, etc etc etc.
Wouldn’t you rather have less stress? Fewer problems? More ease?
I thought so!
Join me at “No Problem Bridge” .
Seriously, No Problem Bridge really exists. ( I snapped this photo this in Aspen,Colorado near John Denver’s memorial park)
The best practice to reduce the stress in your life and in your business is to Simplify.
Author Bill Jenson writes in Simplicity, the New Competitive Advantage, that simplicity is about power.
Simplicity is the power to do less ( of what doesn’t matter)
Simplicity is the power to do more ( of what does matter)
Imagine that you have clarity, focus and are in flow with all of your projects. Your creativity is in high gear. You’ve got the resources. The right people show up at just the right time to help you accomplish your outcome. Your energy level is high. You feel great. Things get done. Life is good.
Each of us can have this experience.
The key is to simplify. Do an honest inventory and let go of what no longer is a fit for you in your business or your life.
Coaching challenge for you this week?
Streamline your life. Simplify. Downsize. Clear the Clutter.
Your end result?
Radically fewer problems. Less drama. Less stress.
Life on purpose, without all the “fillers’
The Key to Planning & Designing a Joyful Business & Personal Life
As this year comes to completion, it is the perfect time to take “stock” of what worked well for you this year AND what didn’t.
Just the other day, one of my newer clients, whom I will call Julie as to protect her identity, shared with me that her life and business are running at peak capacity. From the outside looking in, her life looks very,very good. The catch? She feels like something is missing. She create a big and busy life, but truth be told, she said,”it feels like my life is running me”.
After listening deeply, together we identified all the various projects, commitments, and demands she was currently facing. After getting everything on the table, it became pretty obvious. She had created her own “monster” and it was time to pare down to the absolute essentials. She began to see why she was exhausted and unfulfilled.
In what I like to call the “Aha moment”, she said to me in a hushed tone, “Is this where I was really going?”
“I don’t think so!”
It’s easy to get caught up in the “Millionaire Mindset Bootcamp” bandwagon and follow a model that promises you rock star status in your industry, full of glitter and gold. If this is what you truly want and it gives you great joy to achieve it ,then it is clear. Go for it!
Alot of business owners I’ve met share that they feel like they’re on a treadmill of working,working and working. To what end? Often money goals are created out of group-think. Hey isn’t this what everyone wants and is working for? These goals are usually driven to have more..such as ” I want to break 7 figures in my business. The illusion is that when they make their million dollars, then life will be sweeter and they’ll be happy,finally! So the money goal is set and they put their heads down and work like a dog to try to make that happen. Often they succeed,but at what cost?
With Julie, she was able to get the clarity about what was truly a priority for her and what was no longer truly profitable and/or energizing for her. She had the true clarity about what the important values where for her and this clarity allowed her to redesign her life and business in ways that were much more in alignment for her.
Her question transformed from, “Is this where I was really going?” to clarity. She declared”Now I know what I want & where I am going AND I’m committed to enjoy ALL my life.
What a powerful place to be in. To know what you truly value and desire for your business and your life IS THE WAY to having it all!
Here are a few powerful questions that can help keep you on YOUR path ( not someone …Read More
