  • A new approach to gratitude that will get you through rough times faster

    25Nov

    If you live in the United States, you’ll probably be celebrating Thanksgiving Day this Thursday.

    We have so much to be grateful for, and Thanksgiving is a nice opportunity to pay attention to our blessings, including our friends and family, our health, and healthy meals. We live in such abundance! I’ve found that gratitude is a powerful force. When I can be grateful for what is present in my life, everything seems to flow easier.

    Instead of looking at the half-empty glass, gratitude makes us focus on the half that is full.

    We are usually grateful for the great things in our lives, but have you ever thought that you could be grateful for the tough times as well?

    We might have been able to be thankful for the lessons learned that came after the hardship.

    Once we were on the other side of the pain, and had gotten our lives back  together, we were able to acknowledge the lessons that we learned from the tough times.

    Through these lessons we grew immensely, became stronger and maybe even more spiritually aware. We were grateful for the lesson – after the fact.

    I came to discover a new way to apply gratitude in my life that has transformed me at a deep level.

    Four years ago, I was starting my coaching practice and was giving my heart and soul to every aspect of growing my business. My dream was to be able to help other women in creating their dream lives, and I also wanted to be able to pay my bills while doing so.

    I put an extraordinary amount of work into getting my website ready, making my brand message clear, and learning about marketing so I could have traffic and visitors to my website. In other words, all that jazz that every entrepreneur has to go through in the beginning stages of a business.

    I was doing this by myself, and I sometimes hit walls along the way. I asked myself how do I get clients? How do I get more readers for my blog? Read More

  • Invitation to a Free Coaching Masterclass

    20Nov

    A few weeks ago, I had to cancel the webinar “Making Space for Abundance” due to a minor health issue. I thank you so much for your patience! I’m now back, revitalized and ready to share with you how to make space for more Abundance in your life.

    I am blessed to be able to do what I love for a living, and to be able to connect with amazing people like you as I share the tools for Abundance that I’ve been applying for the last decade of my life. But it hasn’t always been this way.

    For years, in my late twenties, I struggled with “figuring it out”. I was passionate about my big wave surfing career at the time, yet I wasn’t making the money that I really wanted to make. As things were not opening up for me, I started to lose the joy in my surfing. Yet, I kept pushing to make things happen, over and over again, until I ended up getting in a bad surfing accident that almost took my life. That was not a cool way to learn my lessons!

    After my almost drowning episode, I kept hearing a voice within me that was saying “Make Space, make space, make space.” I wondered, what did that mean anyway? Read More

  • How to Have a Positive Attitude When Things Don’t Go Your Way

    27Oct

    Today I want to share with you about an experience I had a few days ago, a new insight came to me. I made a major upgrade in my life that led me to greater Abundance. It wasn’t about anything material. It was about my attitude!

    I had to take a flight from Austin back home to Hawaii. I made it to the airport on time and ended up waiting for more than 4 hours because the incoming plane was delayed. I finally had to cancel my flight and schedule it for the next day, as I was not going to make the connection on time.

    In the beginning I thought: “Hmmm, how can I manifest going home today? What am I doing wrong here?” But something in me was open to seeing what would unfold from this experience. So I went along with it and was actually excited to see what surprises were in store for me with this situation.

  • Are you afraid of what people you know may think about your work?

    02Oct

    If you are a coach, a writer, an artist or offering any service that provides value to others, you may have gone through times where you felt afraid of putting yourself out there because of the fear of what people may think of you. Not just the general public, but mostly people from your life such as family, friends, past or present co-workers and acquaintances.

    You may be thinking that you are not perfect enough to put yourself out there in the world and teach on the things you are passionate about. Or, you may be feeling embarrassed from past situations or even past “failures” and concerned about what these people think about your new career.

    Well, if some of this resonates, you are probably finding yourself stuck in growing your business and not doing what you really want to do for a living. Being in this place is such a disservice to your tribe because it stops you dead in your tracks from moving forward and helping the people that need it most.

    I share two key things you can do today that helps you to overcome these fears of being judged by people, especially the ones you know. This is the same process I apply in my life and business on a regular basis.
