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…

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…

The Power Of Changing Your Mind

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

Did you see the movie “Fences”? I loved it! It is based on a powerful play by August Wilson. I loved that even though it was a movie, I felt like I was watching a play. No cinematic fluff. I loved that the filmmaker chose to keep it simple and NOT to use all of the tools available through current technology. It was carried solely on the strength of the brilliant acting (Viola Davis won the academy award for Best…

THIS Is Why I Meditate!

By | Personal Growth, Success | 2 Comments

 Last week myself, my husband and my youngest son were heading to Jamaica for the weekend to attend my nieces wedding. We had a 7 am flight. It’s always a struggle to get my teenage son out the door that early in the morning, but after much nagging and shouting, we finally made it to the Baltimore airport at 5:30 am. I attempt to get us checked in, while my husband parks the car, but the kiosk keeps spitting out…

The Greatest Gifts

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

Monday was a ‘doozie’ 🙁 I woke up feeling anxious. So I listened to a guided meditation called “fear clear”. Then I picked up a book I’m currently enjoying: “The Book of Knowing and Worth” by Paul Selig. It didn’t take long before the voices in my head started reminding me that it was Monday and I “should” get up and “get to work”. Traditionally, Mondays are the day I work ‘on’ my business (marketing, planning) , not ‘in’ it…

10 Things You Need To Know To Be A Deliberate Creator

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

  What is a “Deliberate Creator”? A person who consciously creates the circumstances of their lives using an understanding of the Universal Laws. Imagine being able to design your life. To know you have the power to manifest anything you want. To have your life go well all the time. To have control over your mind and your body. It IS possible! Yogi’s and Yogini’s have done it for a long time. Many western scientific studies have documented the mind/body…

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…

Navigating Self Doubt and Negativity – Emerging Powerful

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

The darkness was upon her. She could feel the familiar heaviness creeping into her chest. Her mind becoming foggy as the weight of self doubt descended upon her. It happened in an instant. Triggered by a simple comment from a friend. Tumbling headlong into the darkness she was oblivious to the rest of the conversation. Her mind down the rabbit hole of negativity in a flash. She felt helpless to stop it. The tears begin to flow. She reaches up…

The COST of Not Being Present

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | 4 Comments

  December can be a really joyful time of year, reconnecting with family and friends. Lots of celebrations and parties. It can also be an emotional and stressful time of year. For some, it’s a time of financial stress… Running around buying gifts, entertaining, traveling to visit with family and friends. For some it’s a time of emotional stress. Feeling sad, missing someone you’ve lost this year, (through death or divorce). Or the stress of feeling obligated to go places…
