    How To Overcome Your Resistance To Work Less

    How To Overcome Your Resistance To Work Less

    Do you have a deep desire to work less but find it difficult to slow down despite how much you want to? Many of those in midlife with good careers and successful businesses are finding themselves exhausted today. They’ve hit their threshold where they know the pace is no longer sustainable.  Working hard is coming at a cost to our kids and relationships, and more often than not – our health. 
    I understand. I’ve been there.
    We can do all of the things we’re supposed to do: delegate more, hire more people, get better technology or a smarter time management system. Any of these ideas can work temporarily. 
    But what happens when you get the additional resources, or you finish the project, and you still find that you are missing other priorities because you are working too much?  What’s really preventing us from slowing down?
    The reason we can’t slow down has everything to do with understanding our motivations and the overused coping mechanisms we use when we are stressed.  
    It's not our fault we’ve gotten here, but it is our responsibility to change it. 
    It’s 100% possible to work less and worry less while you do. This episode will walk you through the steps you need to take to work less—without worrying the other shoe will drop when you do.
    Our mission is to help you become unstoppable so you can do the best work of your career while you enjoy more inner peace and freedom.

    A Practice To Cultivate Your External Self-Awareness

    A Practice To Cultivate Your External Self-Awareness

    External self-awareness is a vital leadership quality. Today's leaders must do more than bring forth the best ideas, strategies, or plans. They must be able to manage the energy of those they lead. This is a critical determining factor of whether or not people will actually follow you. If you want to be able to engage others, you must speak to a specific part of the brain. But you don’t have to figure this out on your own! 
    Today I’m showing you how to engage others, so your message lands. Talking to others in the way the brain feels safe, allows us to be hears so that we can positively influence others. Let’s face it, we all need others to fulfill our visions—we simply can’t do it alone. Use the tools and strategies I’m sharing today with colleagues, stakeholders, clients, friends, and even your children.

    Your Mindset Management Practice For Higher Performance

    Your Mindset Management Practice For Higher Performance

    High-performing athletes are doing this right—it’s time the rest of us in other industries receive the benefits of incorporating a daily mindset management practice, too. Athletes know that managing their minds is as important as honing their skills which keeps them at an elite level. Mindset management is a practice they’re dedicated to and that the industry prioritizes. Leaders, executives, and parents alike can greatly benefit from a daily mindset management practice.  Too many of us put extreme pressure on ourselves to perform extraordinarily every day but don’t train our minds to support those levels.
     
    You wouldn’t build a house with a sand shovel and you shouldn’t expect extraordinary performance from yourself without harnessing the power of your thoughts.  Today I am sharing one of my favorite mindset management practices that takes only 5 minutes. When you use it, you will navigate unexpected challenges, handle criticism, and manage problems with more ease.

    Feeling Your Feelings So They Don’t Run You

    Feeling Your Feelings So They Don’t Run You

    Let’s face it.  Life is full of a LOT of BIG emotions. And yet we’ve grown up in a culture which tends to encourage dismissing and compartmentalizing our uncomfortable feelings. To prevent ourselves from feeling certain feelings we often numb ourselves. We do this by drinking too much, medicating, overeating, and workaholism —- just to name a few. These are all signs that we may be resisting feelings that we’ve made impermissible to feel.  
     
    The problem is when we don’t tend to our feelings, they start to run us. We may make choices to avoid the feelings in ways that usually cause us more stress, wreck our relationships, inhibit our peace of mind as well as limit any chance of high performance.  Today I share two practices (both of which can be done in under five minutes) to begin to release the valve that may be causing a pressure cooker —  unknowingly — especially in our fast-driven life.  When you practice what I am going to show you, you will find you’re not as triggered by situations, stress decreases and your peace of mind returns.
