4 Work Myths That Are Holding You Back

This week, I decided to video my blog on work myths…

Take me on the go– less than 10 minutes to learn the 4 Work Myths that are Holding You Back.

These 4 work myths were essential for me to overcome as I gained in my successful career.

My clients know about breaking through these seemingly brick wall stories…it is possible.

How to Live a No Regrets Career and Life

A burst of energy came over me yesterday about a promise I made a long time ago.

This promise gets stronger by the day.

Each.

Day.

My feelings and motivation get deeper and I am more committed to my life with each client I work with.

You see….when I was a young nurse, I was reminded by many of my dying patients to enjoy life before it is too late. I have been living life this way with gusto for years.

Sure, every now and then it has been clouded by external events that have caused me to be in fear mode more than “no regrets” mode, but mostly I operate from…

“what do I want my life to have been when I am in a rocking chair in my golden years?”

The rocking chair test is a powerful way to pull back the lens and see who we are,

How Inspiration Can Help You Be The “Noticer” of Success

Today (in the U.S.A.) we notice those who gave their lives to our country. This is so inspirational to all of us.  Where would we be without that level of dedication and loyalty?  

Noticing their success and loyalty can truly fuel us.

Because, one key element of The Law of Attraction is “You are what you think about and you attract more of what you put your attention on.” So- notice and expand more of this awesome inspiration.

How to Find Your Way (Use Your GPS) in Your Career

Your Inner GPS is Essential- I call it Your Soul.

I finally learned how to “Bring My Soul to Work”.

Years ago I was reading a Wayne Dyer book and felt so attached to the words and message. I felt lifted and happy to know how to see my soul and feel great in the spiritual, energetic Universe.

I went off to work and each moment I felt deflated inside- where was this spiritual message?

How can I keep this feeling inside while I work?

Well, I found out and I share it in my Free Training this week.

Have You Seen Your Greatness?  6 Steps to Find Yourself

Life and career can be overwhelming and a continual tug and pull of your energy and attention.

Others weigh in on what we should do, who we should and our focus gets stuck on the outward direction.

Often we don’t know what we are capable of and become exhausted keeping up with what people think of us, what others’ expect of us and fixing problems one after another and it never gets done.

We end up getting “comfortable” being miserable.

We settle for being smaller because no one showed us what’s possible.

Friends and family are ignored in the pursuit of what you want in your career.

Marriage, Money and Your Career

Careers, money, marriage and families all go together! Your work is one of the most impactful pieces of the fabric of who you are and all those around you feel your energy and excitement (or lack thereof) of your work).

A few weeks ago I met a father and podcaster,  Andy Hill, who lives in Detroit (I lived there as a kid), we had a great chat for his podcast Marriage, Kids and Family.

This past Holiday season when a Kick Ass client told me it was the easiest,

She was shot down for a promotion.

“That’s ok,” she told herself….”I didn’t want to work that hard or play those ridiculous office politics, anyway!”

Just under the surface, she was crushed.

Deep down, under her rationalizing brain, her mind began to spin.

Thoughts and feelings of all the times she was ignored, overlooked,

even mocked for being her.

All those feelings came streaming out.

Not to worry, she knew exactly how to suppress them.

Wine with friends, they will understand and so, a night out bitching together,

Every day women go from “why me” to powered up. Success has certain traits and leaves clues.
