Debbie’s Story: Part 2 How to Make Dreams Come True!

Debbie-Grant-story-part2

Inspired by Debbie,

I am sharing the behind the scenes way my clients make dreams come true.

The techniques are not to use better resume writing techniques, although we must be good.

It is not the best LinkedIn profile, but we must be good there also.

It is not JUST learning to speak up and have a voice and be aligned and proud of who you are.

It is not just to network and make yourself known to the right people, and that is certainly key!

JUST HOW DO DREAMS COME TRUE?

How did Debbie, and hundreds of women just like her do it?

She learned the basics of playing in her greatness,

New Job Means New YOU! Ready?

New Job Means a NEW YOU!

Wanting more in life requires being more.

Yup– and I spent my life working on me.

Whether it was the hundreds of repetitions of hitting a tennis ball against the garage door late in the evening…hoping for that Wimbledon Tennis Championship or late night layups in the driveway wanting to seal a victory for my team.

I was born with an innate sense of working on my skills.

The hundreds of books and countless conferences hardly touched the surface….but then…. I put it all together.

As a young nurse I studied and studied.

When I rose to the ranks of health care business professional I subscribed to The Wall Street Journal,

Kim’s Story: Showing Up As The Real YOU!

kim-rb-story-show-up-as-the-real-you

Kim and I met on Facebook…..she was disagreeing with me about my favorite saying:

“Everything Always Works Out For ME!” I asked her to try it for one DAY!

She did…here’s what happened!

To say she has learned to live in the flow and create miracles is an understatement.

Not only does she have her dream job and dream salary (thanks, Mo for the wonderful techniques!!), but she is enjoying her family more, more quality time and she feels like herself AGAIN!! Many years (too many) spent thinking this sort of life was a fairy tale, she finally felt enough was enough!

Kim is now living her life to her soul’s fullest!

I am talking about shine this month.

Your soul shining. Your soul shining is…..well……Is. Everything!

“If only my life was better. If only my job was different.”

The secret lies inside YOU.

My clients show me this everyday.

You know the secret?

Your soul is the secret.

The secret to your freedom, joy and happiness is……

Choosing you.

Your Time to Shine? Why Playing Small Hurts so Much

your-time-to-shine

She said, “Yes, I will go for it!” She said YES to shining brighter!

This brilliant, award-winning software engineer was working with me to stand in her power, to leave a toxic workplace, to change her career and life.

What was going on with her became obvious as we worked together.  

Stranded in a place that was too small for her, she was stifled and it hurt every day.

She loved her team, she loved the work.

But, her boss and the culture had robbed her soul.

Playing too small hurts in every way.

  • Your opinion isn’t valued, because you aren’t in the right seat.

To Know Yourself Is To Love Yourself

to-know-yourself-is-to-love-yourself

People tell me all the time that they don’t feel good enough inside to do what they want to do. This comes from a number of reasons including confidence, inner critics, anxiety and more. When you love yourself, amazing things happen. You get the things you want (including jobs, relationships, money).

Read my post on vision boards which can help with this.

The only way to love yourself is to get to know yourself! If you love yourself, you will begin to do things that fulfill your happiness, your confidence, and even your willingness. It will help you succeed.

We spend a lot of our lives discovering ourselves. We are people…we change.

5 Reasons Why Money Matters

5-REASONS-MONEY-MATTERS

Yikes….I was told as a young girl that talking about money is rude. Money is also the root of all evil, right? I really need to stay away from money. It is bad….and people with it are bad!! Those were the messages I grew up with, how about you?  Just like many of us, I was raised to be honest, modest and a hard worker.

I was raised that envy, money and greed go together.  So, work hard for little money is how that works out…heck no! As a young catholic girl money was the devil and to be avoided at all costs! But, we need money. We need money to live, to give and to create comfort.

Spring-career-cleaning---1280x720

Planting the Right Seeds for Your Career Success

Each spring seeds are planted all around the globe.

We reap what we plant.

And, we must tend to our plantings.

I hear this all the time…….

“Why am I NOT getting the promotion?”

“Why do I always get a bully boss?”

“I work so many hours and it never seems to matter.”

Amazingly, we miss the idea of planting the RIGHT seeds, when it comes to our careers and life.

Seeds are marked, planted and managed….right soil, irrigation, and eliminating pests.

Milijana’s Story: The Invisibility of Playing Small

Milijana's Story : Stop playing small in your career

Being bombed out as a little girl, refugee to Germany and the life of being unwanted was all she knew. Teenage years battling an eating disorder hurt her deeply, she barely survived that.

Some days being angry and hateful was the only defense.

Until she found her strength in the gym.

Years ago, being strong meant lifting the most weight. Milijana was a true super-hero in the gym. Medals, awards and being recognized as the strongest women in Croatia were proud moments. She thought it would take away the years of trauma. Trauma was weighing on her in many ways, eating disorder, suicidal thoughts and deep rage.

She found her safety in the gym,

Kimmy’s Story: I Did It! Never Thought it Possible!

Kimmy’s Story:

I found my dream job, and so can you!

I was really focused on a job title, and what title I should go after.  However, once I had clarity about the type of work I wanted to do in great detail, the job came to me, I didn’t have to go for the job.

I had to make a list of all the things I wanted in my new career.  What were the qualities of the job, how did I feel working in my new career,  what was my team like,  how did they feel about me, how did I feel about them.

EVERYTHING I put on that piece of paper I have in my life today.
