Impact

Impact

“If I wouldn’t have hired you when I did, I probably wouldn’t still be alive”.

I will never forget the feeling of hearing that statement from one of my clients. It knocked me back in my seat. I remember crying when we got off the phone because of the impact he made on me during that conversation.

I didn’t know he was close to giving up on living when we started our work together.

I knew he had goals, he needed structure and we had a lot of mindset work to do, but I didn’t know suicidal thoughts were at play. During the first few months of working with a new client, we spend a lot of time going deep, like really deep into the dark shadows of self. We uncover fears and limiting patterns, unhealthy habits and space that needs room to breathe. Sometimes those are just around performance, professional growth, communication, self-worth, rebelling against structure, lacking a plan, etc. Continue reading “Impact”

Validation

Validation

Are you calculating your own worth based off outside validation?

Before you write this off as “Nope, not me” and keep scrolling… Hear me out because this one can be pretty tricky.

When I say outside validation, I’m referring to a number of things. From approval, acceptance, and praise for your personal work, thoughts, or actions- to feeling whole based off the number of people who are seeking your energy, your advice, or your attention. Continue reading “Validation”

You’ve Got To Find What Makes You Tick

You’ve Got To Find What Makes You Tick

I often hear from people about how they have a hard time staying motivated, or consistent, or moving forward versus moving around and around in circles.

And I have many questions to get to the bottom of why that keeps happening, instead of what most expect which is for me just to throw a pre-written plan at them and tell them to just use that.

You see, cookie-cutter responses have never worked for me and it’s been my experience that they don’t really work for other people either. But most will just keep accepting that type of advice over and over, continuing to feel like they’re not making real progress (not long-lasting at least) and wondering what must be wrong with them because none of these things are working.

Mornings

Mornings
I used to hate the morning time.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m still not someone who bounces out of bed ready to have all of the conversations and interactions with other humans right away.
But over the years I’ve learned how to make my mornings, MINE.

Drop the Battle

Drop the Battle

“If you go into every day ‘waging war’ then war and struggle is exactly what you will get. It will always be hard.”

 

I was given this advice several years ago by a friend over lunch and it has proven to be one of the most impactful statements anyone has ever made to me…

No one is making him a Martyr

No one is making him a Martyr
Dear People who are posting about George Floyd’s rap sheet and saying things like “Why are you making HIM your martyr?” Please take a moment to read this.
First of all, let’s have a little vocabulary lesson. The word Martyr is defined as a person who is killed because of their religious or other beliefs.
Um… Is that what you’re seeing happen here?
Was George suffocated because of his beliefs? Is that what ANYONE is saying?
Have you seen ONE person claim that he is the shining example of what all humans should aspire to be like?
No.

Your Lens

Your Lens

Sometimes even when the reality isn’t really all that rosy we continue, out of pure subconscious comfortability to only see things through our trusty rose-colored glasses. 

 

The truth is, most of us were given those glasses at a really young age and they’ve become something we’ve carried in our pockets ever since. We put them on every time our experience was the only one that was comfortable to see and over the years they’ve become something that we depend on, unbeknownst to us.

Enjoying TV

Contrary to what most people talking about lifestyle, building a business and being growth minded say… I absolutely enjoy TV.

Disappearing into a show or movie serves my soul in such a beautiful way. Continue reading “Enjoying TV”

The Morning

The Morning

Setting the stage for your day is literally one of the BIGGEST things you can do for yourself. It’s a freaking game changer, that’s for sure.

I feel like in several posts I’ve made, almost every training, and more conversations than I could even begin to count, having a morning routine is a topic of discussion. It’s something that’s a constant piece and something I highly suggest. So, in this week’s episode of the Lifestyle Creation Podcast, we’re talking all about how to start your day on YOUR terms.
