Do not underestimate me!
Yes, I may have underestimated myself. And, yes, that gave you permission to underestimate me, but that ends, right here, right now.
"Good enough" is no longer good enough.
I will no longer settle for less than exceptional.
Exceptional is the only path forward for me.
I had coffee with someone today who told me that I was "the same" as someone who does not bring my same knowledge, talents, experience, or...
Clearly, simply, what am I hear to share with you?
My desire for you, loves, is that you learn to trust yourself and know that you are worthy of the life that you desire!
From our very beginning, we assimilate the "shoulds", "would haves", and expectations of those around us - our parents, family, friends, social network, and culture. Sometimes we question, but most of the time we accept these beliefs bestowed upon us as fact. So...
I read Start with Why by Simon Sinek, and I was like "That's great! What's my Why?"
Months later! Literally, many, many moooooooooonths later (12+), I was listening to the Mind Body Green Podcast with NRDC President Rhea Suh (this evening), and my Why came flooding out of me! So quickly that I didn't even have the chance to load my computer (because my computer actually requires time to load right now).
Your Why is passionate, powerful,...
Life is so full of "shoulds", "coulds", "would haves"...blech!
During a coaching session, I wanted to create a way to bring more joy into my morning routine. I love waking up and practicing yoga and I love the idea of waking up and sitting in meditation, but when the alarm actually goes off in the morning, I don't leap out of bed to do either of those things!
As much as I want to do them, there was something that had them as "shoulds" in...
I'm over life as I know it!
I'm over the comfort of the "daily grind".
I'm over doing what is expected.
I'm over giving into comfort.
I want to THRIVE!
I want to SHINE!
I want to LOVE Every. Single. Moment. of Every. Single. Day!
I want to feel purpose!
I want to help others realize their purpose!
I want to LOVE deeply!
Comfort is dangerous. Comfort is what keeps us stuck in the day-to-day situation we may be struggling to break free...
Do you also experience this? When you get super excited about something, then you get in your own way!?
You know that you're in your way.
You know that you're making excuses or blowing up the challenge.
You know that the next step is just to take a step!
Yet, that deceptively friendly voice inside your head starts to question your big goals. And you listen. Because you always have. It's easy. It's habit. You may not even know that...
I had a strange experience on Sunday evening.
I went to an event and the audience was asked to participate by sharing what we hoped to get out of the evening. The group seemed pretty quiet, but a few brave people shared. The facilitator of the event wanted a little more. The energy of the room was tense and apprehensive. I realized that no one else was going to share, so I put my hand up.
When I stood up to share, I caught the energy of...
