What’s Your Fear Of Confrontation Costing You?

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

I used to HATE confrontation. I would avoid it like the plague because I was raised to believe it’s “not nice” and I placed a high value on being “nice”.  Is that true for you too? It’s one of the driving forces behind what I call “TOXIC NICENESS”  (where we hold back from expressing how we really feel for fear of hurting someones feelings or to avoid them thinking badly of us.) Fear of confronting (looking at or speaking the…

Using Your Fear As Fuel

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Most of us are taught that being a strong, successful person means that you don’t entertain fear and you certainly don’t show it. Probably because wallowing in it can be draining and can rob us of our joy, self confidence, energy and our power. I know this to be true as I lived with anxiety (fear) for the first 30+ years of my life. I did not know it was my normal state until I experienced NOT having it for…

The Things That Piss You Off (the gift of triggers)

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

My cell phone rings. It’s my husband. “Your Moms flight has been cancelled. We’re on our way back home”. My reaction is not joy at having more time with my 87+ year old Mom. On the contrary, I’m pissed! I was really looking forward to her leaving. I love my Mom, but for no obvious reason, during the last week of her visit, her very presence had been triggering me. [trig·ger (trĭg′ər) A device used to release or activate a…

Finally! The Baby’s Here!

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

If you’ve been following my journey over the last 8 months or so, you’ll know that I was journeying though what I called “The Void”. I surrendered fully to my Souls journey, letting go of much of what I was doing and how I was doing them and creating space for what was wanting to be birthed next through me. It’s has been a journey that has required: Developing greater levels of courage and trust – in myself and the…

Challenge or Opportunity?

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Well, Donald Trump has been in office 11 days and chances are you are feeling A) The world has gone mad B) Incredibly stressed and angry C) Disconnected from the whole thing I spoke with a friend last night (who lives in another country) and she was feeling incredibly stressed out by what is happening here in America. I was curious as to why she felt so affected, since she doesn’t live here. I forgot that the world is more…

I’m BACK!!! (Did You Notice I Was Gone?)

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | 2 Comments

I’m BACK!!! Ok, so maybe you didn’t even notice I was gone… 🙂 But if you did, you may be wondering where I’ve been … or maybe not (but I’m going to tell you anyway) Lol! I’ve been in “THE VOID”. It’s a place of deep unknown – in between letting go the old and waiting for /allowing the new (the next level of expansion) to emerge. It can be pretty scary. Especially if you don’t have support and don’t…

The Power of Language: Finding The “Right” Way To Talk About What You Do

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

The effective and powerful use of language is an art. The words we use have the power to heal or to harm. One word, one sentence – said with a certain emphasis – can create a sonic boom in someone’s awareness. It can attract or repel. It can open you up or shut you down. It can make the sale or kill it. How many times do we get caught up in trying to say things the “right” way? How many…

Are You Paying Attention?

By | Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

Yesterday I was going to the restroom on a break at a seminar I was attending. I was checking my emails on my phone while I walked (even though I get annoyed at people who nearly run me over because they are looking at their phones instead of paying attention to where they are going! Lol!) My very full bladder was relieved to find there wasn’t the usual long line in the ladies rest room and I only put my…

Powerful Thinking. Powerful Results.

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

I was at an event last weekend and I asked a woman I was chatting with if she had joined the program that was being offered by the coach who’s event it was. She replied: “I’d love to. I really want to. I need it …BUT … I’m in another program that doesn’t finish until October.” I asked her if the program she was in covered the same things as this program. She said no. She also said she knew is…

What Got You Here, Won’t Get You There

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Today is day #23 of a 100 day exercise commitment I’m doing. What that means is, I am choosing to move my body for a minimum 30 minutes EVERY day – whether I feel like it or not. I’m actually not doing it to lose weight or be healthier (although it will probably result in both) This is an exercise in strengthening my ability to truly COMMIT to something. Really commit. Not half ass, lying-to-myself, pretending-I’m-really-committed-but-letting-it-slide-if-it-gets-hard-or-inconvenient, or, I’ll-get-to-it-tomorrow, kind of…
