Sometimes we know we want to take action on something, but we're not quite ready to take that action.
You've made a decision, or you're on the precipice of making a decision, but there's a lag between that decision being made and you feeling ready to take the action. This is what I'm calling Lagging Action.
This usually happens with those big, life-changing decisions - like leaving your job, moving cities, even changing your...
It's that time of the year again, when the collective is focused on setting Annual Goals.
According to Forbes and Inc. only 8% of people actually accomplish their New Years Resolutions and around 80% lose their resolve by mid-February. So why do we keep doing this!?
It's with good intention and the desire to create change in our life!
As a coach, I am here to tell you that change is possible and it is possible for you!
It's a matter...
I've heard this and said this so many times. It was this morning when I was talking about expecting someone in my organization to talk to me this week about my merit.
My organization calls our annual salary review "merit".
This morning my friend stopped me and said in her perfectly matter-of-fact way "you have merit and nothing they say or do can change that".
Words have so much meaning and I was allowing this conversation about my merit...
When did you learn being seen wasn’t safe?
When did you learn being recognized in a crowd meant being punished?
When did you start hiding?
When did you shrink into a wallflower?
Sometimes it’s a trigger in this life that your soul recognizes as a danger from another life. Sometimes the time you remember in this life doesn’t seem like it could have been enough to send you into the shadows, but that might have been the...
In the process of waking up, there are many stages and each has their exciting pieces and the parts that are full of fear.
One of my most feared places during this process is looking at the gap between where I am now, and where I want to be.
If you have dreams, this gap can strike insurmountable fear into any mere mortal!
And yet, the only way to get there is to keep moving forward.
Sometimes I get scared of even looking at ...
This work isn't sexy, and it may not be quick, but you will feel strong and confident in knowing that these are life-long, sustainable changes.
I'm not going to give you the answers. I will support you and encourage you, but I will not hand you the answers because they would be my answers, not yours. True, lasting, sustainable change can only come from you doing the work and finding your own answers.
It may not be easy, but it also...
As I reflected back on 2018, I felt like I spent the year like a golden retriever! It felt like I had a favourite tennis ball, then another tennis ball was thrown and I got excited about that one and chased after it. Then, I found another tennis ball on my way to collect the one that was thrown; then another one was thrown...and another...and another. And all the tennis balls were all so exciting. I completely lost my initial tennis...
Every experience that we have creates a story within our life. Each one of these stories has the possibility of traveling with us - when we don't take the time to process them, move through them, and let them go.
When we hold onto a story, that story can become intertwined with our identity.
If you have dabbled in the self-help space, you are likely at least aware of some stories you are traveling with. Being aware is definitely...
When your intuition speaks, but you're not quite ready to listen to it, that's ok!
There are times when we choose not to listen to that small, quiet voice in the back of our heads. Sometimes we hear it, or we feel it - a nudge - and we know something is true, but we are not yet ready to take action on it.
When your intuition speaks, be aware of it. Cultivate your practice of hearing it, but you don't always have to take action on what it...
I want to say this is "learning" to listen, but in reality, it is a relearning or a returning.
When we are born, when we are young, all we know to do is listen to ourselves. We feel something, and we share it with those around us - even before we have words. Actually, especially before we have words. My mum reminds me that when I was a baby, I would "tell" everyone around every tiny detail that was going on within my human body! This is...
