The last step to uplevel your leadership and consciousness!

Nov 08, 2018
 

When I started my leadership journey, I was absolutely TERRIFIED to speak in public. But I knew there was something about being able to get up and talk to people and connect with them that was important to my process, so I wanted to grow into a leader who could get on stage and be comfortable.

The last step in this process is to take action and step up and live as though you already are the person you want to become. I had to just get up and speak even though I was still scared of it. I could...

Uplevel your leadership - Step 2 - Increase your awareness!

Nov 06, 2018
 

We put a lot of work into improving our businesses, tracking how well we’re doing at reaching our goals and looking for ways to make things better.

In fact, I bet you spend WAY more time paying attention to your business than you do to yourself. Right?

If you want to grow your leadership and grow your consciousness, you have to pay that kind of attention to yourself and your thoughts and feelings.

You have to become the observer-witness.

How else will you know what you need to work...

Dream a little dream

Sep 10, 2018

When I was a teenager, it was easy for me to daydream. In a small town, without cell phones, video games, or distractions, and with plenty of boring downtime, I spent long hours dreaming and visualizing my bright future. As an adult, I am busy, always chasing, jumping from task to task, getting things done. We don't allow enough space and time to dive into our imagination. We have Hulu and Netflix, Facebook, and constant email checking to fill our down time. We don't take time to...

What are you rehearsing?

Sep 07, 2018

If I could choose just one tool that made my process of growing as a leader easy, it would be the power of visualization and mental rehearsal. It's that powerful. 

The basic concept is that your brain doesn't know the difference between what's real and what's imagined when it comes to learning. It can almost just as easily learn by visualizing a situation than actually performing a task or taking action. 

If that is true, to be a good public speaker for instance, wouldn't it be much...

Stop ‘should’-ing on yourself

Sep 05, 2018

We spend our lifetime telling ourselves that we shouldn't be the way we are. We should be more educated, smarter, prettier, taller, have straighter/curlier hair, be more accomplished, more successful, richer, and then we will be worthy. 

We believe that if we are all the things we made up at some point in the past, we will gain everyone’s collective approval and we will be okay. 

What's this all about? To find the answer, we must go to the era of our ancestors and look at how...

On journaling

Sep 03, 2018

Journaling is great. 

When I started journaling and discovering what holds me back from being fully self-expressed and showing up in my full power, I saw that fear of judgment was the other side of the coin of looking for approval. We want to look good and we want to avoid being judged or criticized.

But why? What is it about judgment from others that has us doing mental gymnastics trying to figure out how to make people think positively of us? 
And more importantly, how might you...
