Are they real?
Why are we hung up on them?
What do we need validated before we can let them go?
Do they serve us?
If no, how can we tell a better story that supports our future, our growth, what we want and what makes us happy?
How can we leave behind the story of blame, hurt, failure, and pain to tell a story of surviving, of writing our own stories... of making life better than we could have imagined.
Use these small daily tools in this episode to identify the stories you tell yourself (and others!) and learn how to honor your pain or struggle while changing your story to a more positive, empowered one filled with choice and opportunity for you.
You can do this. You deserve good things. You deserve to be happy. But first, you must make the choice to be.

I asked myself “How do I write more consistently” and then my brain answered:
“You just do.”
My goal during the coming months is to share short meanderings and curiosities about life via my blog to get back in the flow of organic and authentic writing.
Writing that doesn’t have a destination.
Writing that tickles the curiosities of the soul.
The kind of writing that transports me in time and thrusts me into a magical sort of flow state that I love feeling.
I’ve committed myself to doing things with greater consistency and the only way to do things consistently is by actually PLANNING for them… So I’ll be dedicating the first waking hour of my day to writing these blog posts. No more and no less than an hour. I find that if I push myself to write MORE, I burn out and end up not wanting to write the next day. I...
Here is your weekly dose of “High Five Friday,” a list of things that are adding value to my life or capturing my attention this week.
We live in such an incredible time. We can literally live and work anywhere in the world and make a living. There has been no other time quite like this where the only limit to our experience is our ideas, our beliefs and our commitment to making it happen. Many people are feeling pulled to adventure. To travel and explore the world around us. We’re pushing the limits of the stable job, the 8-5, and living in the same place for our entire life.
So the question is, what would it look like for you to live your life of your own terms?
Pull out your journal or a piece of paper and complete the following questions:
1. What do you value most in life?
2. What are your deal breakers? (these are things that if they happened, you would be done … be it with your job, your relationship, your career)
3. What are you tolerating right now?
4. What would your...
"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
There will always be a reason that the timing isn’t right. Or you don’t know where it’s all going and why, so you neglect to begin. That’s why this quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is so important. It’s profound in it’s simplicity, but powerful when actually done. That is why you must simply begin right here and now.
So instead of skeptically asking ourselves “What is it all for?” or stating, “I need to know what it will it look like in 3 years from now before I will begin.”
We must instead ask ourselves this:
“What is the FIRST thing you can do in pursuit of that relationship, career, or life you want?"
Without judgement, without letting fear wreak havoc on your mind. Declare your starting point and START now. With each and every step...
Most of us aren’t depressed. We aren’t uninspired. We don’t lack passion, dreams or ideas. In fact, what most of us are, is stuck.
We're depressed because we want something more, something different, something better, more our style, more real and true and congruent with our passions and purpose in life. When we know too much, like what our soul longs for, what would make us happier, more playful, loving, and kind, even a better contributor to our world, we must actually go forth and do that. It is when we stifle the energy that becomes us, that we grow depressed, listless, self-hating and sabotaging.
We say we’re uninspired, but we’re actually just scared. We need to summon the courage to push forward to something greater for ourselves, for our vision, for our future. We get “uninspired” because we’ve allowed inspiration in to play and we’ve waited too long to take action to allow inspiration to become our...
If there is something out there that you dream of, something that you have not taken on yet, that inspires and motivates you, or if it's been a while, maybe it kind of haunts you, try getting a Coach.
Try at least questioning.
Pick up a book that inspires you.
Think about who you would have to become to pursue this passion and joy.
What would you have to give up?
How would you like you life to be?
Right now, if you could do and be and live anything, honestly, be honest with yourself, what would that be?
What are your 3 biggest goals for this next quarter... for these next 3 months? Write them down.
We've only got this one, and if we do it right, we are better together. If we do it right we spend it pursuing our dreams, our passions, and our goals. I believe that if you know something that can help someone, it's our responsibility to share it. That's why I'm here. That why I recoded this video. That's why I care about you. I care about what you do, who you are, and what...
