Can we get personal for minute? I want to know what turns you on. “Did she just say which I think she said…?” Hello, yes, I’m still here and yes, I did just ask, what gets you really excited? I mean truly HOT and bothered!! Forgive me if I’m going too fast, but life is short and I want you to enjoy every minute of it. You see, I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching lately and I’ve discovered something I hope is useful to you. Most of us are joy stoppers. Most of us only allow for a specifically allotted amount of happiness and abundance. And we are very stingy about HOW we think we can and should come by said bliss. Work hard. Pay your dues. Hustle. Keep striving. Success doesn’t come easy. Sound familiar? I have been as guilty as the next diva buying in to this belief system, but I’m starting to change my tune. As I mentioned last week, I’m still recovering from a very nasty bug. I’m feeling much better, but as a result, my vocal chords are swollen and raw and I can’t sing! Of course, I’m very sad, but there’s been a cool side benefit to being vocally […]
I’m in the mood for love…and here’s why. It’s Valentine’s Day, the day for sweethearts and romance, but the real reason I’m in the mood for love is because it’s the best, fastest way to create a truly abundant life. I have found over and over with both myself and my clients the biggest impediment to reaching the next level of success is always linked to some aspect of not fully loving yourself. It may sound mushy, but there’s just no way you can show up as a magnetic, dynamic force if you are not embracing yourself. You know why? Because human beings are feeling creatures. Our emotions dictate our thoughts and our thoughts dictate our actions, so if we are being critical of ourselves or not honoring who we are, it shows. And where it shows the most is in our results. On the other hand, when you are in alignment with your authenticity, you feel comfortable expressing yourself and enjoy being in your own skin, that shows too. You begin to make major strides toward your big goals. You also experience more confidence, a greater sense of personal power and much more joy. And here’s the kicker, more […]
There is one pretty clear rule in business, no sales equals no money. Ugg. Wouldn’t it be great if clients would just enroll themselves? You wouldn’t have to do those uncomfortable sales calls. Making sales calls is something a lot of entrepreneurs dread. In fact, a lot of entrepreneurs actually avoid making them which is a shame because by doing so they are leaving money on the table. I have to admit I used to be one of those people. The idea of picking up the phone to ask someone for egads, money, made my palms sweats. What was that rule again? Ah, yes, no sales=no money. There you have it, sales calls have to be done. But why does it seems so scary? A lot of it is wrapped up in self-worth. Have you ever had this thought “Who am I to ask for so much money?” Maybe you’ve never had that exact thought, but there are other gems we tell ourselves. Here are some you may recognize: -I don’t want to be seen as greedy. -I I don’t want to seem stuck-up. -I really am asking a lot of money for what I’m offering. -I don’t want to […]
We are so lucky to live at this time and in this society. Now more than ever there is an abundance of opportunity. However, with all this opportunity it is sometimes difficult to know which choices to make. If you are trying to decide between a good option and a bad one the choice is obvious, but what do you do when there is no obvious distinction between a good and bad idea? What if you have more than one appealing opportunity? How do you know what to do?
Last week I blogged about our beloved Pop-Pop who has recently suffered a heart attack. I am happy to report Pop-Pop is doing much better. He really is the miracle man. In my last blog I talked about what a good connector Pop-Pop is, how he reaches out to people and stays in touch and how we would all benefit from following his example. Actually, Pop-Pop is an incredible role model for many reasons. As I mentioned before, Pop-Pop had to be revived three times when he had his heart attack. That means he actually died and came back three times! Afterwards the doctors had to put him in a forced coma for several days to protect his brain. I guess all that rest gave Pop-Pop a chance to think because when he finally gained consciousness one of the first things he said was “You know, I think I came back for a reason. There must be something more I need to do. I’m not sure what it is yet, but I feel like I have something left to accomplish.” WOW! This is a 93 year old man who has traveled the world, met thousands of people, had a career and […]
