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…

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…

Peeling Back the Curtain – How I DO Self-Care

Self care needs to be purposeful! Yes, yes I know I’ve said that before (a few hundred times) and yet there are some folks out there you have heard it – but clearly don’t get it.  How do I know? Simple, because they are not living it. Too many folks are half-assing it, forgetting about it or not prioritizing it and then wondering why self care doesn’t help them. So I’ve decided to share with you some of the very…

Why I Don’t Bother With Labels

Why I Don’t Bother With Labels

Some people have asked me ‘what’ I am. Have you ever had that question? It can be asked around religion, spirituality, job title, culture…so much can land under that question. I find that amusing because there was a time when finding my label, my ‘thing’ was super important to me. I thought that knowing the correct answer would not only bring me clarity but would support me in creating Step Into Brilliance and even my own personal best life. I…

The Dirty Nasty ‘How’s’

What’s a dream you have, one that you’re putting on hold? What are you waiting for? Could it be the ‘hows’? THAT is exactly the last thing to sit and wait for. Listen, goal setting 101 – write it out. What do you WANT? To finish a website? Write a blog? Lost 20 pounds? Build muscle? Learn a new language? Learn to practice forgiveness?

Why Motivation Is A Line of BS

Why Motivation Is A Line of BS

We’ve been fed a line, and we’ve taken the bait because it sounded delicious. Motivation. Truly, a bunch of crap and half-truths are floating around out there and these are keeping people from being honest and getting shit done. So listen, if you ARE feeling motivated right now – hey get going! Have at it and enjoy! For those of us ‘other’ folks who aren’t? Here’s the truth…your probably not going to get motivated anytime soon. Well, at least you…
