I came across a quote this week by James Clear, the author of Atomic Habits (highly recommend this book, btw)... “Most people think they lack motivation when they really lack clarity.” and I thought, How true! I've seen this in my own life multiple times. And I run across it every single week with my Coach Action Plan calls. I've even kind of nicknamed what we do as coaches as helping people get untwisted, which is another way of saying we help them get clear. Think about the different niches and why people get stuck. Here are a few

I thought I'd share a few strategies that have worked for me when things in life and business haven't gone "as planned." If you've been reading my emails for a while, you may know that I've been working on getting to neutral in my life and business. Thus the 30-day writing challenge and the meditation challenge. It's basically the idea that I don't get an emotional charge around the negative aspects of life and business. I just handle them with ease and grace from the get go. A lofty goal, I know. And since I'm not there yet, I've

A friend shared this letter with me and I have to share it with you.It's so badass and inspiring, you'll want to save it.Which is exactly what I did.I keep a "mindset" file where I put all of the amazing, inspiring stuff I come across so I can refer back to it whenever I need an extra boost.And this went to the top of the list.Go read it now. It will only take you a minute or two. I promise it's worth it. And then come back. https://twitter.com/ecomchasedimond/status/1295849812139499521Are you back? Did you read it?Amazing, right?Don't you just feel like

Since the end of the 30-day writing challenge, I've had a few moments of..."Oh my God, I forgot to write today's email!"And then realizing I'm fine. No email to get out today. There's this strange withdrawal that happens when you do something daily and then suddenly stop. And I'm finding myself missing doing a daily challenge. And it got me thinking that I'd like to do another challenge starting in September. And perhaps get into the habit of doing a new daily challenge every month. Not a writing challenge. At least for now.But something else. The goal of the

I came across this question a while back that I thought was a great thought exercise. The question is..."What if the only things you had tomorrow were the things you expressed gratitude for today?”So, they just wouldn't be in your life tomorrow if you didn't express gratitude today. Trippy, right?Even if we just start with things right when we get up in the morning, we've already got a pretty big list.bedpillowsheetsbedroom lightelectricitynightstandpajamastoothbrushtoothpasteetcKeep making the list throughout the day and it's going to be in the thousands most likely.It puts things in a whole new perspective, doesn't it?Hope you have an

I have to admit that every once and a while the craziness of what's going on in the world gets to me. And I have to pull out ALL my tools to deal. And it got worse this past week when I heard that Trump is sending "federal agents" to Albuquerque. Because that's gone so well for Portland. But I'm dealing because what else am I going to do? So, I thought I'd share one of my tools because you might be having these moments, too. I call this tool, "Flipping the Switch."It's pretty simple, really, and I'm guessing
