Take The Next Step To Lead Your Extraordinary Life

Take The Next Step To Lead Your Extraordinary Life

I’m reading a wonderful book right now by Danielle LaPorte called The Fire Starter Sessions. She talks about what it takes to light the fire in your life to be your best self, whether it’s your health, relationships, career, or all of the above.   “I dream of invitations that humble me, and magical connections with people I recognize on a cellular level. I dream that we band together to leverage change. I dream of feeling more electric and sweet every single day. Mostly, I dream of being amazed. How ’bout you?” ~Danielle LaPorte   Too often we settle. We don’t feel our best, but we’re used to it or think it’s “normal.” We don’t feel fulfilled by our work, but it’s paying the bills. Maybe somewhere deep inside we don’t feel like we deserve to be healthy, wealthy, or happy. That our dream is impossible. Ask yourself, what’s holding me back from living an extraordinary life? What’s preventing me from taking the necessary steps to reach my goals? ...

How To Propel Past The Proverbial Slump

How To Propel Past The Proverbial Slump

  Do you feel stuck? In your business, in life, certain relationships, or health issues? Is the same nagging thought or string of thoughts keeping you up at night? Do you keep coming back to the same answer, but are too afraid to execute the solution for fear that it won’t be perfect, or turn out the way you want? Don’t let the little things get in the way of you moving forward.  I was at a business training a couple months ago, and we were covering the importance of setting up a clean and organized work environment in order to work more efficiently. I’m a BIG fan of this idea. Which is why I was shocked to hear the next speaker get on stage and proclaim, “If you’re messy, be messy. Build your business.” Right then a light bulb went off. If you wait for things to be perfect before making a move–in any situation–you will become paralyzed with fear and overwhelm. And, the fact is, sometimes you need to...

Lesson Learned From My Husband, A Red Caboose, And No Internet

Lesson Learned From My Husband, A Red Caboose, And No Internet

  Last Friday, I married my high school sweetheart and we went on a mini-honeymoon for the weekend. Usually, when we leave town I take my computer, my iPhone, my day planner–my work life–with us. The beauty of having my own practice, and an online business is that I get to design my own hours and work from anywhere. Which can be a blessing and a curse. It being our honeymoon and all, I decided to “unplug” and bring only my Kindle, and the newest issues of Vogue and Vanity Fair for entertainment. (When was the last time I read a magazine cover to cover?!) We went to Strawberry Springs in Steamboat (If you haven’t been, GO.) where we stayed in their nicest accommodation, The Caboose. It’s literally a caboose, still on the railroad tracks. To my surprise, we had running hot water (yay!), a kitchen (yay!), our own bathroom and shower (double-yay!), a gas fireplace and solar-powered lights! Suddenly my picture of “roughing it” was turning out to be...

9 Simple Steps To Accomplish Everything You’ve Ever Wanted

9 Simple Steps To Accomplish Everything You’ve Ever Wanted

Recently, I accomplished a financial goal that I had set for myself. It was so exciting to realize I had reached my goal! My mentor had pushed me to set that goal, and I had felt really scared about it — it seemed so unattainable. And what if I didn’t reach it? I would feel like a failure. But then I realized, if I didn’t reach my goal I would still be farther along than I am right now. So why not try? Goal-setting is somewhat of an art. There’s a lot more to it than just wishing something would happen. If done properly, it can give you the guaranteed roadmap to accomplishing your dreams. Here are my 9 simple steps to accomplish everything you’ve ever wanted: 1)  Before you make any goals — financial, personal, health, relationship — get really clear about “why” you want to accomplish that goal. Write it down. Make sure it moves you. In other words, if it brings up emotion or tears when...

What Are You Not Doing That You Love?

What Are You Not Doing That You Love?

I hate to admit it, being a wellness practitioner and all, but I have never been all that into exercise. (Anyone who knows me well is nodding and smiling right now.) I know! It’s terrible. I don’t like to run or swim or lift weights or play sports. Ugh, sports. But, to quote SJP in Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, “I love to dance.” (Who’s seen that movie? Great scene.) Yesterday, my mom found my old ballet shoes from when my number one dream was to advance to dancing en pointe. (My other dream was to grow my hair past the middle of my back. Dream big, right?) The lambs wool I used to wrap my toes peeked out, still stuffed in the box toe. I inspected the hand-stitching of the satin and elastic straps — had I sewn them on, or had my mom? The iconic pale pink material scuffed off the toes, revealing the paper mache structure. I cannot tell you how much I LOVED these shoes!...

Follow Your Dreams, Your Health Depends On It

Follow Your Dreams, Your Health Depends On It

In Gay Hendricks’ book The Big Leap, he talks about the difference between living your life in the Zone of Competence or the Zone of Excellence versus living your life in the Zone of Genius. What I find fascinating is his account of many clients who experienced ill health as a direct result of not living in their Zone of Genius, but rather settling for a career, relationship or life situation that did not utilize their purest forms of talent and inspiration. Many physical symptoms such as headache and back pain are warning signs, like the flapping and wobble of a flat tire when you’re driving on the highway. The symptoms are saying, Slow down, stop what you’re doing, and pay attention, because there’s something out of integrity here. ~Gay Hendricks, The Big Leap Indeed, it’s bad for your health to ignore your dreams. You might know exactly what it is that you’re not doing in your life (that every cell in your body is yearning to do, that...
