Is Your Pain Too Comfortable?

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

This is your bottle of Tylenol speaking. I know you’re stressed so I’ll get straight to the point: 

Fact is, you’ve been hoovering down my contents like I’m a bag of skittles. It’s making me wonder…

Is your pain too comfortable? What are you ignoring or denying in life that’s creating this level of physical pain? 

Sometimes the body uses pain as a warning. Or it could be more accurate to say that your soul uses the body to send you messages. 

So I’ll ask again: is your pain too comfortable? What are you denying?

Here’s What Your 90-Year-Old Self Wants You To Know

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

Have you considered what your 90-year-old self wants you to know?

Shortly before you die, you’re going to have a moment where you feel regret. It’s going to feel horrible. It’s going to break your heart.

What’s the regret about?

Not speaking up. Staying small. Letting fear win. Allowing excuses to get in the way of your dreams. Swallowing other people’s poison for a paycheck. Betraying yourself to be liked.

And then there’s the biggest regret of all — the awareness that you didn’t go for it.

GO FOR IT: Go for Greatness; go for Life;

Your Blind Spots Are Costing You Over $500,000 Dollars

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

What are your blind spots costing you?

Blind spots, by their very definition, are hard to see. Usually we don’t know what our blind spots are until someone points them out to us.

Blind spots often have to do with how you’re viewing or seeing reality. The way you see reality directly impacts how you react to life.

So how does that cost you money?

If you react to your boss, co-workers, or life circumstances through the cloudy lens of a blind spot, you usually get ignored, imposed upon, laid off or passed up for promotion. You miss out on raises and consistently receive less than you’re worth.

Lisa’s Story: She Was Ready to Settle Forever, Then She Learned the Truth

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

When my client Lisa was just a little girl, an attorney came to her parents’ rescue when their farmland was threatened. To Lisa, he was like a guardian angel whose wisdom saved the day.

She was so moved by the experience that she decided to be that guardian angel for others and became a disability lawyer — a really good one.

But she was working too hard. She didn’t have control of her schedule and wasn’t making the impact she wanted.

Shortly before reaching out to us, Lisa filed for divorce. She told us she felt out of control, as though life was “happening to her.”

After our 12-week workshop,

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

I am excited to kick off the week with a wonderful conversation with a fabulous educator, Cathy Beals, EdD. Cathy came to work with me and my team because she was experiencing the problems many women have:

    Nadia’s Story: Overworked, Burnt Out, and Feeling “Not Enough”

    Do you ever think or feel that you’re not enough?

    This thinking/feeling pattern can be tough to identify. It starts in childhood and becomes so ingrained you hardly notice.

    But here’s how you KNOW it’s operating under the surface:

    • You work yourself to the bone but never receive the validation, promotion or financial compensation you seek.
    • Fear stops you from using your voice to advocate for yourself.
    • Your shaky boundaries allow your boss and co-workers to take advantage of your work ethic.
    • You burn out and end up with physical symptoms or chronic illness.

    My client Nadia was working 60 hours a week including overnight shifts.

    Does Age Matter in the Workplace? Your Age and Your Work Attitude

    Does age matter in the workplace?

    I’m just gonna come out and say it: gray hair doesn’t make you obsolete.

    There’s a lot of noise out there about career opportunities diminishing with one’s fading eyesight. Even if this is a perception that’s shared by a lot of people you know, it’s just that: a perception.

    You see, your age is never the issue.

    But what about your age and your work attitude?

    The issue is your mindset and the way you understand success! Too many people are walking around hypnotized by what everyone else is telling them to do or be. Don’t allow it!

    The Hard Work Myth is Holding You Back: Stop Playing Small

    Is the hard work myth holding you back and causing you to play small in your career?

    We’ve been told all of our life that the harder you work, the better your career. But working yourself to the bone with no self-care is not the path to success!

    Do you work and work and work with the same results? → Never moving up the ladder? → Never getting that pay raise?

    STOP trying so hard for too little return. Stop wasting your gifts and talents in work that crushes your soul. START paying attention to what will make you grow and save your energy for what really matters!

    What Your Parents Told You is Wrong and Holding You Back

    Your parents’ advice was wrong — is living by their “rules” holding you back?

    Based on our Facebook poll, aside from those who stated they didn’t receive any career-related advice growing up, the most frequently heard advice that respondents reported receiving from their parents was, “you should become a: (fill in the blank), despite the fact that you have no interest in it.”

    You need to understand how your family is still affecting your day-to-day life!!

    Are your parents holding back your performance, income level, your power?

    We all love our parents. While their recommendations come from a place of love (sometimes) and asking their point of view may be helpful,

    Your Traumas Are Showing Up in Your Career

    Are your traumas controlling your career — or are you?

    At some point in your career, you are likely to experience trauma. Perhaps it’s a negative work culture, colleagues that don’t like you, feeling overworked and underpaid, or uncertainty with how to manage up and level up. These can all leave you feeling stuck and fearful.

    Aside from making you feel lousy, these feelings deaden your soul and keep you from being the best that you can be. Your trauma begins to take hold of your career. You’re unable to attract the right level of role, so your contribution is less than what it could be, and your earning power is much less.
