I remember being told that balance didn’t exist. That if I wanted to truly build something I just had to keep my head down and do the work.
Good thing I don’t always follow instructions because that would have never worked. When I did try to operate that way back when I was working a “day job”, it landed me in the hospital more times than one.
The truth is, craving that balance has led me down one of the best paths I could have imagined and as a result, I get to share it with other people so that they can have it too. Continue reading “High Performers”

“I know, I know… My life is so glamorous”…
I’ve caught myself saying this a few times lately, sort of poking fun at myself as I’m conducting my daily life… you know meal prepping or spending my holiday weekend working and organizing my house.

Accomplishing what you want in life is a bit of a balancing act. You balance between focusing on the task at hand (the “seed”) or planting today right now in this exact moment and keeping your eye on the end result, keeping your eye on the harvest, on the goal, and what is it you’re looking to create.

She looks like a mythical creature, right? You’ve thought to yourself many times… “I just need a Pepper Potts” and you’re probably right.
But here’s the thing… Do you know what that entails? Do you know that it will require you letting go of some of the control? Do you know that it will require you to hire the best? Someone with the skills to do it? Someone who can manage YOU and your alpha, constantly creating mind? Do you know that will require you to reach into your pockets and pay what it takes to hire the best?

It’s funny how one day can hold so many highs and so many lows.
How you can have the best morning, have good conversations, and have exciting things happen but then have an utterly trying afternoon. One that makes you want to crawl under a hole.

PEOPLE LOVE DRAMA. Chances are, you’re creating your own right now.
Here’s the deal… our brain is pretty amazing. It has a way of knowing what we need and when we need it. We obviously CAN choose to follow instinct or make a different choice. But instinctually, our brain, our subconscious to be more precise, will follow the path of least resistance. Continue reading “People Love Drama”
