Part 4 of 4: What Key Things Did I Learn to Get Me Where I Am Today

Part 4 of 4: What Key Things Did I Learn to Get Me Where I Am Today

This is a continuation of the series on 4 key lessons I learned to help me grow into the person I am today…

The fourth lesson is I learn from everyone and everything.

Every second holds the opportunity to grow and become happier with who you are. If someone has experienced something similar to what I am going through at the time I listen intently and learn from their mistakes and their outcomes. That is why I continue to read or go to seminars, or talk to people openly about life.

I figure if I can at least learn one thing from each source it was worth my time and energy. I feel strongly that life will continue to present situations to you until you learn the lesson. Three years ago, I had taken on a LOT of responsibility. It felt like I was […]

Why We Do What We Do, and How We Can Do It Better

Why We Do What We Do, and How We Can Do It Better

I’ve shared a Tony Robbins video below with quite a few people in the past week – all sharings have been well received so I couldn’t resist passing it along to you as well!

If you know me at all, you won’t be surprised for me to share a Tony Robbins clip – he’s a great mentor of mine even thought we’ve never met. I did have quite an incredible opportunity to work for one of his companies at one time, but my path took me down a different road. Long before that, I had the help of his “Unleash the Power Within” seminar to teach me my most limiting belief – the one thing that held me back time and time again.

This video below… — sccrreeeeech! I could almost here you saying, “Well, what the heck was your most limiting belief?!?” For multiple reasons, which I think are goodies, mine […]

Do You Feel ‘Good Enough’? How a Shift in Perspective Can Change Your World for the Better

Do You Feel ‘Good Enough’? How a Shift in Perspective Can Change Your World for the Better

I have done a LOT of soul work ever since I was a little girl. As dorky as it may sound, I have actually broken my 28-year old life into two stages, and I even have titles for them! The first stage was my teenage depression years titled, “From Lost to Found” and since then I have been in “No Guts No Glory” mode.

In between these two stages rests one of the most important moments of my whole life. A special pocket of time where it felt like time was slowing down; my heart and mind and soul were wide open to receiving ‘the message.’ I was at an Anthony Robbins event and eighty to a hundred people surrounded me, chanting, screaming, jumping up and down all in support of me breaking this one-inch board with my bare hand. I was one of the last and my hand was pulsing […]

“I’m negative more and more lately… I cry because I don’t know what else to do… I can’t seem to snap out of it… I’m not happy (though I know I have reason to be)… I’m so disappointed in myself that I can’t seem to find motivation to fix how I feel… I reach out and tell people how I feel but nothing changes – if anything, I just feel worse…”

Sound familiar? If not, congratulations, you’re in a better place than most people I’ve been talking with recently. And I am sincere in wishing you congratulations – we must take notice […]

Q&A: Bad Relationships, Our Need to Feel Appreciated and How to Overcame Those Obstacles

I received a question from a reader named Amanda. I wrote back a long response to her question but found her email address to not be a working address. So, I open this up to all of you in hopes that Amanda finds the answer she was looking for…

Amanda’s Question:
“I toppled across your website this afternoon and started reading your blogs; they are truly inspirational. I was curious.. in one of your blogs you talked about how sometimes our need to fill appreciated can keep us in bad relationships far too long.

My Response:
Good morning Amanda! Thank you for the kind words – this is why I keep going and do what I do. I always said if it impacted even one person – it was all worth it. 🙂

Is Your Thinking Aligned with the Majority or the Minority?

Is Your Thinking Aligned with the Majority or the Minority?

A new Conscious Divas post!

I heard a study that only 9% of people polled in the US are earning the same amount or more income that the previous year – everyone else was making less or jobless. This is very concerning to me and makes me question what people are thinking and feeling. I wake up and see the latest news announcements about how the world is in a very delicate economic state and how we might be headed for a major hit. Company stocks are plummeting which gives us FEAR, families are living on a shoestring budget and feeling STRESS, and relationships are experiencing TENSION due to all the pressures we face.

Yep, this is the way I see the majority thinking and it makes me want to put on my Super Woman cape on and save the world.

 

I have […]

How to Be There for Your Teen While Also Giving Space

How to Be There for Your Teen While Also Giving Space

Read my latest personal growth message posted as an expert author on the Conscious Divas website. Below is a teaser of the article with a link where you can read the full post. Enjoy today’s article on “How to Be There for Your Teen While Also Giving Space”.

You may or may not know by now that I hold a strong passion for opening communication between teens and parents. Wow oh wow did I push and pull my parents in every possible direction as a teen. “I need you” … “No, get away” … it must have been so incredibly confusing for them! But I couldn’t help it, I was an emotional roller coaster.

I was confused to the max about the pressures I felt surrounding me. Who did I want to be? How did I want to show up in the world? I constantly analyzed how others showed up and compared […]

An AMAZING Blog I Stumbled Across

An AMAZING Blog I Stumbled Across

I am constantly looking for others that share in my passion to help others by sharing their wisdom and their life experiences. I have a few I’ll be sharing with you over the next few months. This blog in particular is new, but POWERFUL.

The domain says it all: FEELING THEN HEALING — http://feelingthenhealing.wordpress.com

Don’t we all go through this experience of FEELING then HEALING? When going through moments of heartache OR bliss – we MUST FEEL first. We soak in the most exhilarating times and the most hurtful times. Either way, whatever our experience, we take the feeling deep inside ourselves and lock it in. We can then draw upon this AMAZING force of emotion and past experience to help propel us into our best future.

This blog I found – about Standing in the FIRE Of Life – calls us out. Calls everyone of us out to be our […]
