    EPISODE 1693: Moving Beyond Need…

    EPISODE 1693: Moving Beyond Need…

    Would you like to experience a full, great, prosperous, abundant life —outside of need? This is how…
    A need-based belief will keep you needy.
    What does “need” mean to you?
    And what does it mean to be “need based?”
    What do YOU need?
    If you only give yourself what you need, you will keep yourself in a state of need.
    It’s vital that you learn to ASK and RECEIVE beyond any need.
    Have you ever felt needy, or been around a needy person?
    No one wants to be around one, let alone BE ONE.
    BUT…
    When we don’t take care of our needs, we become needy.
    Give yourself permission to move BEYOND NEED today.
    Those who ask are those who receive.
    Those who seek are those who find.
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP
    Identify your biggest need right now.
    Then identify an area where there’s no need — it’s abundant and amazing.
    Look at where you can move beyond need in your first example.
    Look at how you can continue grow (if this is your desire) in the area where you currently have no need.
    Please take some time today and write this out.
    Commit to setting a new mindset, a new heart set…a new BELIEF in moving beyond need.
    Thank you for being here, and allowing me to SIP ON LIFE with you.

    EPISODE 1692: Love Yourself For A Change

    EPISODE 1692: Love Yourself For A Change

    How do I love myself? This is a question I get asked A LOT…
    Today you’re going to learn how to begin the process of LOVING YOU. Consciously. Compassionately. Consistently.
    Are you ready to get an A+ in LOVE?
    LOVE. Loving yourself. It seems like it would be so natural, right?
    It was at one time, but like many natural, healthy things…life has a way of teaching us the opposite.
    These 6 Keys will help open up the door of your heart, and release the chemistry of your INNATE SELF LOVE.
    Think of it as showing love THROUGH yourself.
    Will it be pure?
    Unapologetic?
    Unashamed?
    Naked?
    Unafraid?
    Unconditional?
    Here’s how it can be...
    Key #1- Acknowledge YOU and the love you desire.
    Key #2 - Ask YOU for the love you desire.
    Key #3 - Give love to yourself.
    Key #4 - Act on it. Act with it. Take massive loving action.
    Key #5 - Accept love from yourself.
    Allow yourself to receive it (receive YOU), my dear!
    Key #6 - Abundance. Receive abundantly and act abundantly in love with it.
    WHAT CHANGE DO YOU DESIRE?
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
    Take an inventory of where you’re accepting or pursuing anything that’s not what you desire.
    Write down anything that you’re accepting in your life…but it’s NOT what you desire.
    Write down anything that you’re pursuing in your life (possibly unconsciously) that’s NOT what you desire.
    Commit today to LET IT GO, and commit to passionately pursuing what you DO DESIRE.
    Passionately pursue YOU.
    Love yourself for a change…
    And create what happens!
    I can’t wait to hear about what happens next.

    EPISODE 1691: You’re NOT Broken

    EPISODE 1691: You’re NOT Broken

    STOP TRYING TO FIX YOURSELF. YOU’RE NOT BROKEN. Here's how...
    What’s the difference between counseling and coaching? This was the question I was asked. This is my answer...
    Counseling focuses on FIXING.
    Coaching focuses on FINDING.
    Counseling focuses on the PAST.
    Coaching focuses on the PRESENT, while creating the future you desire to love and live.
    At least, this is what I do with my clients in Healing Life Coaching.
    You may FEEL broken, but you’re NOT.
    You (and your life) may not be working, but you can.
    My desire for you is to feel (and be) fully functional, aware, and thriving.
    NOT just ONE step up from BROKEN.
    HOW?
    1. Find yourself. Stop trying to fix yourself.
    2. Inspire yourself.
    It’s time to begin Inspiring yourself in the healing process,
    Inspiring yourself in the process of loving your life and life’s work well.
    3. Expose the TRUTH. Period.
    Stop waiting for your life to change to love it.
    Love your life to change.
    Stop waiting for YOU to change to LOVE YOURSELF.
    Love you to change.
    Love your life to healing.
    LOVE YOURSELF FOR A CHANGE! (More about this in tomorrow's podcast...)
    Stop trying to be improve yourself, be better, or be best...
    FIND AND EXPRESS YOURSELF.
    In order to Be Excellent Starting Today you must Be Expressed Starting Today.
    Expressing who you are.
    In order for you to do this, you must know.
    And…
    In order to know, you must EXPRESS.
    Got it?
    It starts right here. Right now...
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
    Write yourself a letter today. Tell yourself why you’re NOT broken.
    Write out how you feel, then remind yourself: I AM NOT BROKEN.
    Even if you’ve felt (or feel) broken.
    Acknowledge how you feel, but don’t take it on as your truth.
    Thank you for being here, and allowing me to SIP ON LIFE with you.

    EPISODE 1690: Once You Know Your Love Language…

    EPISODE 1690: Once You Know Your Love Language…

    So, you’ve discovered your Love Language…now what?
    In order to become the great lover of your life, you must become fluent at speaking the language of love.
    This takes practice. Daily practice.
    But the good news is, the language of love is quite practical.
    Why? Because the more you speak it, the more you begin to love your life and life’s work well.
    What if you could put your love language on every single topic of your life?
    Imagine what that would look, feel, and sound like…
    It would look like YOU loving your life and your life’s work well!
    Not only is it possible, but YES...it’s practical.
    Besides your topic — or what you’re speaking about with the language of love — those people, places, and things that surround you also affect how you speak it.
    Who are you surrounding yourself with, and how’s it affecting your accent? The ACCENT of your love?
    Think about this as you go through each of these 5 primary languages of love…especially YOURS…
    1- Words Of Affirmation
    2- Acts Of Service
    3- Receiving Gifts
    4- Quality Time
    5- Physical Touch
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
    1. If you haven't yet taken the test, go to 5lovelanguages.com and take the 5 Love Languages test by Gary Chapman. 
    (Again, I have no affiliation with this website or company. I've found it to be a powerful tool in my own life, as well as in the lives of my clients.)
    2. Identify your primary love language, and write out a plan to start showing and speaking love to YOURSELF in this language...starting TODAY.
