What if you could be anyone you wanted to be, have anything you wanted to have, experience everything you wanted to experience, and be successful at everything you would set yourself out to do? You know you can, right? What’s stopping you? If it’s a little voice telling you to play small and live in your comfort zone—that one that keeps repeating “It’s not possible”—then we need to have a
As we relish the long days full of sunshine that come with the middle of summer, this is a good time to re-examine our new year’s resolutions. Remember those? It seems like a long time since we set them, so let’s see if we are still on course. We still have 6 months to make them happen! It’s easy to get distracted and caught up in life once the thrill
Picture your future self. Think about what she does each day. Picture all the things you hope to achieve in the future. That future self is doing them. She lives her purpose every day. This is exactly who you want to be! Of course, now you wonder how her actions help her purpose. And how did she get there? Now, if you could step into the future, to be the
Can you imagine what the Earth would look like if humans had never ventured out of our early settlements? We certainly wouldn’t have grown very much as a civilization. We wouldn’t have explored every continent, the deep oceans, the tall mountains. We would have stayed right there in our little village, too scared of what lay beyond to imagine that the possibilities are breathtaking. Is this what you are doing
When you feel uninspired, unfulfilled at work or with life in general, what do you notice happens with your confidence? Confidence easily freefalls into a downward spiral when you are unhappy. Disappointment so easily leads to the “not good enough” feeling because we take it personally. We feel like we are directly responsible for our unhappiness. But you know what’s great? We are also directly responsible for our happiness. It’s
You’ve probably heard of people who are “birds of a feather” or “peas in a pod,” but why do you think that “like” hangs out with “like”? It makes sense, of course, that you would join with others who you share a commonality with in some way. This is how we’ve found friends since we were little. As adults, though, this desire for community takes on a whole new level.
If your life were a movie script, what would you highlight? What would be your legacy? Would people want to buy tickets? We both know that you are ready to play a bigger role in the world, so the time has come to define your legacy. What will it be? Who will it affect? What will you change for the better? The most important question, of course, is who will
Finding your inner compass is the first step in the challenge of navigating the waters toward your goals. Once you know what your goals are, how are you supposed to set the coordinates? When I talk to fellow travelers, the “how” tends to be what stops them in their tracks. How am I going to find my way? How am I going to reach my goal? When the goal seems
There are times in each of our lives in which we know the sun is there somewhere, but we can’t see it behind the clouds. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed by responsibilities. Maybe you feel like you’re living someone else’s life and tired of the inauthenticity of it all. Maybe you’re just plain stuck in a rut! Help is here! The trick is to will those “clouds” out of the way.
“But if I do this, I don’t think my parents will be happy.” “Wonder what my husband will think about this decision?” “I would LOVE to…but what are my friends going to think?” When you’re faced with a decision, can you make your choice confidently without looking back?
