Teeny weeny, boring, painful, ineffective life. Or. Big, expansive, exciting, fulfilling life, where we get to share our unique magic with others and make a real difference in real lives. For me, I choose the juicy, mind-blowing life. Come with me. Let's do this together. One courageous step at a time. We got this! Let's go!

    How to Experience True and Lasting Happiness - Weekly Lift-Off Minisode

    How to Experience True and Lasting Happiness - Weekly Lift-Off Minisode

    In this week's Minisode, I discuss this quote by Robert Holden:

    "Beware of Destination Addiction-  a preoccupation with the idea that happiness is in the next place, the next job, and with the next partner. Until you give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are."

    Holy moly!  We do this all time.  Many people live their whole lives this way.  Chasing happiness, but never experiencing it.

    Listen to hear my own experience and insights on this topic.

    Plant Beautiful Seeds and You Will Reap a Beautiful Harvest - Weekly Lift-Off Minisode

    Plant Beautiful Seeds and You Will Reap a Beautiful Harvest - Weekly Lift-Off Minisode

    In today's Minisode, I discuss this quote by Robert Louis Stevenson: "Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant." 

    At the beginning of any new venture, we aren't going to see results right away.  We have to stay committed to showing up every day and giving our best to what we're creating. 

    The harvest is the domain of the Universe. Our responsibility is to plant good quality seeds, and show up each day to lovingly care for them.

    How to Powerfully Set Goals and How to Complete Them

    Happy New Year!!!!   🎊 🎉🍾

    Here we are at the goal setting time of year, and it's one of my favorite things to do! Today I'll be sharing how I set my goals for the year and what I put in place to help me stay committed throughout the year.

    It's easy to get bogged down in the middle of the year.  We lose steam and it's easy to give up and quit. I discuss how we get stopped and what we can do about it in advance, so we have a waaaay better chance of making it to the finish line.
