What’s Up with Getting Bullied at Work?

We’ve seen it all lately!

Or have we?

I’ve been there and I’m a #MeToo participant.

Why are we seeing another abuse of power?

Why are we seeing another opportunity for people to step forward and say, “NO MORE!”

I was raised Catholic and when the Catholic priest sexual abuse was uncovered….so long it took to finally be exposed, I was mortified, but also knew how common it was for that sort of power abuse.

I’ve seen bosses ignore problems, belittle people, yell in such a way as if it was out of a horror movie.

So surprised and shocked each time.

She Found HERSELF… Are You Ready?

She is all right now. She started out desperate to feel better.

She has a Masters Degree in Computer Science.

She works in a big company in Europe serving business clients.

She used to feel invisible. USED TO!

She wants to be a writer, a blogger. She wants to be seen for who she is.

We met in my Kick Ass Coaching call 12 weeks ago.

She lives in Europe and was ready to throw in the towel.

Burnt out.

Not seen.

Miserable at work. Miserable with what she chose to study and learn.

But… she is talented.

You Create It All, But How?

Thoughts are Momentum.

You create your life. YOU CREATE EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE.

Yup! There, I said it.

Everything in your physical world is an out-picturing of the world inside you….because it all starts with energy.

Your consciousness is showing. Everywhere!

The grand mirror of the physical world is a reflection of the energy world in which we live.

Your thoughts and feelings are energy.

How else would you feel them? This energy interacts with your body…feelings!

Your physical body responds and then chemicals in your body change and now you have a real deep feeling. Once it is in your cells….your body remembers the feeling.

Cracking Open to Your Success

The Crack That Opened Me Up…..My Breast Cancer Journey

Sitting in that familiar chair just like many November weekend days, watching football, snacks at the table beside me, I moved up and down while the games played. A fan since I was a little girl.

Not this day.

This day I was in the same brown leather recliner, not comfortable and not up and down as I wanted.

Not this day.

This day bandages covered my breasts, covered the drains coming out of the sides of my chest and just below where my belly button used to be. Where my belly used to be. Where my breasts used to be.

3 Ways to Stop Laboring so Hard for Success

Is there too much labor in your career?

Today we celebrate the contributions of American workers in the USA….Labor Day!

Congratulations to all of us and now…

I want to throw it on its head a bit to create more ease in your life.

You see…there may be too much labor in your career!

Are you plagued with a syndrome I see all too often in my coaching practice?

Working hard to prove you are worthy?  

Prove you are worth it? (the money– what $$$)?

Prove you are ready to be promoted?

You may be trying too hard,

What You Think of Yourself May Hurt You

Who you think you are may be hurting you….let’s explore this tricky topic. It’s more than self-image.

Like it or not, our lives are a collection of our thought habits.

This past Saturday I had a great session with my Mastermind ladies. These are women who have worked with me for a while and are frickin’ awesome! Heck….they inspire me with all they accomplish and their aligned, soul-based living. Many of them have recently achieved more in their careers and lives than they ever imagined possible for themselves.

They are living their dream lives because of one major change. They began to see themselves in new ways. There are some necessary steps to take to get aligned.

It’s Happening: Programming Your Thoughts for Success

YOUR Thoughts Are Not Who You Are…

Every day you think thoughts, and science tells us over 70% of these thoughts are the same ones day in and day out. These repetitive thoughts create a belief system that controls our decisions.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is the science of success.

When we think and feel in repetitive ways it becomes our “reality.” Eventually it feels like our thoughts are who we are.

We are wiring our brain every minute with the wiring and “firing” of neurons, especially when emotions are high. This “programming” makes it feel permanent and convinces us that we are how we think and the world is how we feel.

How to Manage When it Never Ends: Embrace Life Lessons

How to Manage When it Never Ends: Embrace Life Lessons

What? Never Ends?

I know….life is a constant flurry of things…events…feelings….thoughts…..can’t we just get off and coast?

No. We. Can’t.

Life has a way of constantly flowing.

A river that never stops, always flowing.

A horse race around the track, over and over.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer 6 weeks into a new job, I thought my entire existence was going to crumble. Cancer gives one the jag in the throat, the punch in the gut…I did wonder if I would die or how bad it would all be. When I told my boss I was so afraid of being criticized,

3 Ways to Handle Life: “When Bad Things Happen to Good People”

Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

I was “fired” (ok, downsized, re-organization, call it what you will, I lost my job) 6 times in my wonderfully successful career as a healthcare executive. I finished on a high note, but trust me there were times when it felt like it had crumbled for good!

One time I lost my job was within days of our house getting robbed! All our jewelry, every darn piece and $1000 cash that we never have around the house, but we just came back from a vacation and there it was hidden in a drawer. Hidden! And they got it! Burglar alarm and all- we sat at a movie as the calls from the alarm station came in.

I want to share mine because so many have enjoyed it as much as I have.

Your best time in your life, whether that be as a child,

a teenager,

a young adult or last week,

this time tells us things about our soul.

These times are when we are connected to the Energetic Universe that is the source of all happiness and joy.

We must create more time in this miracle making space.

When I coach people to find this space, to spend more time in this space,
