Nothing is as Powerful as Persistence

Nothing is as Powerful as Persistence

Benjamin Franklin once said that “energy and persistence conquer all things.” That guy knew a very big secret to success and happiness. It isn’t just about talent or skill set, it more often is about persistence. This is true in every aspect of life.  Have you ever heard something like ‘his overnight success took 10 years?’  It’s really bang on. There are so many examples of people who are successful who were not especially talented, educated or extra smart.  They…

How We Get In Our Own Way

How We Get In Our Own Way

I’m telling stories, making metaphors and sharing the one thing we do that often prevents us from getting what we want in life. I also share a very special tool I use almost every day!   How do you find you tend to get in your own way? (let me know in the comments below) We all do it sometimes and in SO many different ways. Staying aware, taking time to reflect often can help us move out of that…

2018 Word of the Year

2018 Word of the Year

Have you been hearing your friends talking about their word of the year? The idea is to sort through your goals and intentions and create a word (or a phrase) that encapsulates those things. One word is easy to remember and can trigger the emotion and motivation behind you. Sounds fun and brilliant right? So you figure out your own personal word, but – then what? Just like our New Year resolutions they only work if we do. In the…

Taking Control of Your Own Life

Taking Control of Your Own Life

I have encountered a fair number of new clients or friends who get upset when I talk about being in control of your own life.  Like, really upset. In fact, one person called me out on it pretty harshly.  I’m okay with that.  I’ve found the blessing in this. When someone calls you out on your beliefs you have a choice to make it work for you or get really upset and defensive. You see, it can cause you to…

I Lied And Said I Was Busy

I Lied And Said I Was Busy

Have you ever lied about being ‘busy’? The vague ‘oh I have an appointment then” when you really don’t? That sort of thing? I most certainly have.  In the past I think I lied about this quite often. Or worse didn’t and struggled through situations that were far too much for my physical well-being, not to mention emotional or mental well-being. I don’t know about you, but I use to lie about being busy to avoid the looks, the feelings…

A Word On Enough-ness

Beautiful Soul, this is your friendly reminder that You Are Enough. Too often we push and pull at our Selves, til we hardly recognize who we really are in this world because we’re trying so desperately to fit into it. Desperate to BE enough, when the truth it our enough-ness is already Truth. You are NOT responsible for anyone else. You are not them. They are not you. And yet, we are all innately connected. But only you are responsible…

How One Minute Can Change Everything

How One Minute Can Change Everything

“I only have a minute” Famous last words right?  I mean, what’s a ‘minute’ but 60 seconds? It seems like such a tiny amount of time and yet, it’s really only as small as you make it. After all, how much time does it take to say “I love you.”  Or “I want to break up.” Or have someone crash into you? Less than that 60 seconds and still the world can completely change. Of course, it doesn’t have to…

Why Successful People Seek Coaching

Why Successful People Seek Coaching

One of the things I often have to explain to people is that coaching is not therapy, mentoring or being your bestie who will love you, listen and tell you you’re wonderful, no matter what. (I will tell you the truth lovely, even if you don’t like it) I have referred people to a therapist when I realized they are looking for help healing past trauma.  While coaching can provide inner healing, it’s not a replacement for the type of…

How to Loosen the Habit of Judgment

How to Loosen the Habit of Judgment

We all do it, it’s a natural part of our human experience…judging things and people. Some folks will tell you that it’s ‘helpful’ and we need a certain amount of judgment in our lives in order to live them. You know, we need to judge whether something is right for us, if a situation is safe or helpful, if another person is going to be a good fit as a friend. But let me make a case for the difference…
