A fun game to help you stay present in your life08Mar
Today I want to share with you a game or a challenge that’s been really transformative for me in becoming more present in my life. I think when we are more present in our lives we can really take charge and be responsible for directing how our life goes. Rather than us feeling like we are being run by our emotions and our thoughts, we can start to create the life we want.
In this video you will learn a fun game my husband Gregg and I play. We noticed these three patterns that go in a triangle which cause us to lose our inner power, hence the name of the game The Bermuda Triangle. The more you play this game, the more you will become aware of what is running you day to day and how to transform it.
How do you go for your dreams, when those around you don’t support you?24Feb
Are you upset because your family, your partner, or your friends don’t support you in your pursuit of your dreams?
Have you ever shared a great business idea, or a life goal with a loved one, only to find that their response is indifference or lack of trust in your ability to succeed? They may even tell you that you are going to fail.
If you’ve been holding back from going after your dreams, or if you’re trying to make your dreams work but are feeling defeated due to the lack of support, then this is an opportunity for you to reclaim your power.
When we listen to the voices around us, follow them and believe them, we are giving our power away to others, or even to our own fears.
We all feel fearful when we are pursuing something big in our lives. It’s scary to drop what you’ve been doing for years and take a different path. It is scary to invest money in a project that we don’t know is going to be profitable. Nothing in this life is certain (well they say that only taxes and death are).
4 Lessons From A Date Night Gone Bad (+ Are We Manifesting Our Bad Luck?)18Feb
Have you read The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks? In the book, he talks about what he calls the Upper Limit problem. He explains that we sabotage our own happiness when things are going well for us, because we can only allow so much abundance into our lives.
He goes on to explain that we are only comfortable with a certain amount of happiness, joy or money, and that when we are about to exceed our self-imposed limit, we unconsciously create situations to ruin those moments so we don’t move into more prosperity.
Oh well, I did just that the other night…
Lose control of your life15Feb
Last night I had a dream in which I was falling from the sky at full speed and was about to smash my face into a gray concrete road. I don’t know about you, but every time I dream that I’m about to die, I wake up in a cold sweat. My heart pumps hard, and when I wake I’m relieved to find that I was just dreaming.
Last night it was very different. As I was falling, I started to say within myself, “There is no fear, there is only love — Love only and only love.”
My magic mantra didn’t stop me from hitting the ground. In fact, I hit the ground so hard, that the road broke into pieces. Mercedes, the body died, but my soul was still alive: vibrant, exultant and awake.
When dreaming big hurts08Feb
Have you ever felt so passionate about something that you ached inside? I have. I am feeling that way right now.
As you may already know, I want to publish my book and have it read by millions of people around the world. It seems like an impossible task. But what if it is possible?
My Hell Yeah! is to complete my book and have it published everywhere. I can already see the white cover and bold pink print similar to the photo above. I envision it in everybody’s hands—from those riding the subway in Buenos Aires, to those reading it over coffee in a café in Paris, to those reading it on the beach at a resort in Bali.
A few months ago, I paid a book agent for a coaching session where we brainstormed about my book. After one hour of listening to her, what I got out of it was that: I am not famous enough to publish as a celebrity, nor am I different enough to position myself as a self-help author, nor do I book enough speaking gigs in a year to be known as a prestigious speaker. She also noted that I don’t have a hundred-thousand email subscribers, therefore I ain’t an Internet sensation.
So in a few words, she told me to forget about writing the book and give up my dream.
Are you procrastinating in developing your business?08Feb
You’ve started your business, and there is a hell of a lot to do! You have to work on your website, marketing, branding, social media, connections, building and growing your list, launching products, and the list keeps going!
You have dreams and visions, but your days go by and it doesn’t feel like you’ve accomplished anything. All you remember is that you entered Facebook in the morning, with the idea of just catching up with your virtual friends and, suddenly, the day is gone and nothing got done.
Are you hiding behind Facebook, Twitter, or the TV?
Well, you’re not alone. I’ve talked to many women who’ve shared similar concerns. They all find ways to procrastinate, and avoid taking responsibility for their businesses.
If you’ve been avoiding what you need to be doing to grow your business, this may be a good time to ask yourself WHY.
Why are you avoiding the things you need to do?
Are you too stressed out?
Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed by the number of tasks you need to tackle in order to build momentum in your business.
Maybe you’ve spent too much time comparing yourself to other entrepreneurs, and you’re feeling defeated, frustrated, or that you’re not good enough to run a successful business.
