More and more frequently I’ve found myself in conversations with various people from all different walks of life about things they’re noticing make them feel overly drained or zoned out.
One of my friends said “I always feel like I’m more dumb and a zombie after scrolling”.
I went on to explain to her how normal that actually is (these days at least) and how it’s actually a massive exchange of energy that’s happening that we’re really not recognizing, therefore not making different choices OR giving that action the space it deserves without draining the life out of you.

When your team becomes your family.
It’s been such an interesting ride in building a virtual business these past 6 years. I remember when the thought of working with a coach or subcontractor that I’d never met before felt so foreign, or temporary.
Looking back I realize that due to the way I originally learned that business was “supposed” to be, that is where those beliefs came from.
“Good help is hard to find”
“Finding someone who is reliable is almost impossible”
“Sometimes you just need to find a warm body to fill the chair”
These are all things that I’m sure we’ve all heard a time or two when working in a management position or owning a business. These are things that we believe to be true because, well that’s what everyone says is true. Continue reading “Delegation”
We all seem to want more of something… but maybe it feels like an empty desire. One that’s fun to say but doesn’t seem at all like it could ever be a reality. OR maybe it feels sad or discouraging because nothing ever seems to work out right.
There’s never enough money or time or progress… What if I told you that you could flip that narrative and start actually getting more?
Well– what you track… grows.

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”
What to do when people are shitty….
I was in the shower pondering on the way different people approach different situations and I thought about that question; What do you do when people are shitty to you?
Well, I feel like we all may have a go-to reaction that we’ve developed over the years when faced with people being sucky towards us but is that really the best option?

I was finishing a book the other day and it promoted this insane overwhelming feeling of gratitude. One small statement caused me to go into deep thought about intentional living and why it works.
The statement: “This is why we practice”
Mindfulness mainly but all areas fit under the umbrella really.

“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…

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.

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.

Everyone is looking for the secret sauce, the answer to how to get all of the things they want and usually, we want it all right this very moment, right? Oh I know, I’ve been there too.
This is something I encounter a lot in my world and unfortunately, the answer isn’t what most want to hear. There is no quick way… but the cool part of that truth is it sure does help differentiate between who’s ready to commit now and who still needs time.
In the newest episode of the Lifestyle Creation Podcast, we talk about how accepting that consistency is the key to all of the things that we want is not always a fun realization. But we do talk about how to get past that, how to start now and allow the space for shifting, tweaking, and moving as needed along the way.

Not around it or over it or under it, but THROUGH it, through to the other side where this thing, even if right now it’s annoying or uncomfortable or seems hard. Through to the other side were doing the things actually is your norm and a tool you know is the secret sauce that allows you to create whatever it is that you want.
