    Finish Your START

    Finish Your START

    In today's episode, Dr. Shannon teaches you the secret to finishing what you start.
    WARNING: This one's going to require some deeper thinking. Is it possible that the reason you haven't finished what you started is because you haven't finished your START? Today I'm going to teach you the secret to finishing what you start. What does it mean to you to “finish your START?” It means you'll become a starter AND a finisher.
    For some it may be easier to start, while for others it may be easier to finish.
    However, I think most people find themselves feeing stuck in the “I don’t know where to start” category.
    Start something.
    This has always been easy for me…but I’ve had to learn the hard way that starting simply for the sake of STARTING or running with an idea doesn’t always work real well.
    Perhaps you’re like me and you find it way easier to start, but…
    Is this working for you?
    For me, I got to a point in my life where I had to finally admit that STARTING wasn’t always the answer…and it simply wasn’t working.
    Starting without finishing will wear you out.
    Where’s your finish line?
    Done gets paid. If you don’t finish it, there’s a lack or loss of value.
    When you exchange that value for something of value you keep the circle of life going…the circle of value growing.
    If you start, but don’t finish, you won’t get results.
    Ideas start things.
    BUT…
    An idea doesn’t FINISH it.
    Inspiration will take you a long way, no doubt, and staying tapped into the true power of the inspiration will help you finish as well.
    HOWEVER, how about finishing your START?
    Is it possible that one of the reasons you haven’t finished something is because you…haven’t started?
    AND/OR…
    You haven’t fully finished your START?
    What do I mean by this?
    To start or finish anything you must START AND FINISH your START.
    How?
    You must...
    1. SHOW UP.
    Are you showing up?
    How are you showing up?
    When you show up are you fully AVAILABLE?
    Are you showing your TRUE SELF…genuinely and authentically?
    2. Be ALL IN.
    To FINISH your start you must be ALL IN to the START.
    A lot of times, we’re not ALL IN from the very start. We tiptoe, or walk around it – at times sticking our toe in — but we’re never fully diving in.
    The truth is, you don’t have to dive in, but you MUST get fully into the pool. Step into it, and begin.
    You must begin to WALK.
    As the water gets deeper, in no time you’ll be floating and flowing.
    And eventually you’re going to need to swim…or you’ll drown.
    FINISHING YOUR START means you’re ALL IN, and you're SWIMMING. 
    3. Go ALL OUT.
    Fully swim and flow in the deep end of the pool. Be ALL OUT…FULL OUT…so eventually so you can finish up your SHOW UP.
    FINISH UP YOUR START UP.
    Then take it to the next level.
    A lot of times we think about the END result, and think it’s so many miles down the road that we can’t even see the finish line, so we don’t start.
    If this is YOU today, START.
    Then finish what you start by FINISHING YOUR START.
    Focus on simply starting and fully finishing your start. FIRST.
    Start and get fully into the deep end, and immersed in your START.
    Remembering that in order to get to the ultimate finish line that's ahead, it’s going to require several finishes. 
    You must have several FINISHES before you get to the ultimate finish line.
    The end of our lives is the ultimate finish line…and the beginning of a new to START.
    It's another ALL IN moment.
    The first finish is FINISHING YOUR START.
    Are you willing to be ALL IN to the start AND to go to the next FINISH?
    And so on…
    If you only partially START, by NOT finishing your start, you’ll keep starting...starting...starting and never finish because you haven’t first FINISHED YOUR START. (Got it?)
    The key to your finish is FULLY STARTING…finish your start, my dear!
    If you don’t fully finish your START, you’ll never finish your FINISH.
    Starting and finishing

    Are You Uninspired?

    Are You Uninspired?

    Today I’m going to give you some powerful steps that’ll help you reconnect with the inspiration that’s in you.
    If you’re lacking that inspired, loving feeling…you'll find it IN you. It’s simply fallen asleep. It’s time to wake up!
    Disengagement will cause us to lose that loving feeling, and leave us feeling uninspired.
    Are you suffering from the diagnosis of: UNINSPIRED?
    The cause is DISENGAGEMENT.
    A lot of things can cause disengagement, including our circumstances.
    BUT...
    Do our circumstances cause disengagement OR does our disengagement cause the circumstances?
    Here are 3 things you can do today to reconnect with the inspiration that’s IN YOU.
    Start by looking at both the present AND future...
    1. Get out the past and into the present.
    2. Anticipate the future and create something you're excited about.
    3. Remember that you have an expiration date.
    The past, present, and future happen for us, and through us, to teach and grow us into our today…preparing us for our tomorrow.
    Imagine that!
    Ask your heart to show you the BIG WHY.
    AND the WHY that YOU desire.
    Why do you want to be here today and tomorrow?
    Create something compelling around this desire.
    Remember: You began with INSPIRATION. It’s IN YOU.
    Because it’s in you, it IS accessible.
    The question is, are you willing to look for it, go for it, find it? Are you willing to take what you find, and create something magnificent and inspiring with it?
    You must first be inspired, before you can share your inspiration.
    YOUR INSPIRATION ISN’T LOST.
    It’s still there…quietly waiting for you to recognize it, get inspired by it, and begin to put it to use.
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage with yourself.)

    Procrastination…Am I The Only One?

    Procrastination…Am I The Only One?

    If you’ve ever suffered from the diagnosis of procrastination, you’re not alone! There is a cure. In today’s episode I teach you a 4-Step Strategy for overcoming…treating…adjusting the Procrastination Affliction.
    Today’s S.O.L. STORY…
    I’ve been in a resistance, procrastination mode all day! This is what I know about procrastination...
    First, you do have power in the situation. You’re not a victim.
    Second, try these steps. They work!
    1. Are you getting enough physical rest? Evaluate the amount of rest you’ve had. If you’re not well rested, well fed and nourished, you won’t have enough energy to do what you’ve set out to do.
    Get some rest so you can be ALL IN…body, mind, spirit, and emotions.
    2. Whatever it is that you’re procrastinating, ask yourself WHY you’re doing it. What’s the big WHY for doing what you do? What’s your inspiration?
    Reconnect to it, or release it.
    3. Redefine your “should” or “have to” with a “CHOOSE TO.”
    If you don’t choose to, then see #2 again and re-evaluate.
    4. Schedule it. No more "someday," or "sometime." Once it's scheduled, it becomes, “this time”…today.
    Get it done.
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL.
    1. Write down what you’re resisting…PROCRASTINATING.
    2. Circle it, and go through the 4-Step Checklist, and release yourself.
    GET IT DONE.

    Date Yourself Well

    Date Yourself Well

    In today's episode, I’ll teach you how to become the great lover of your life.
    What’s the cost of NOT dating yourself well? A whole lot of unnecessary pain, suffering, and sometimes years of your life. The emotional, physical, spiritual, and financial consequences can be exponential. Today I uncover, and teach you the possibility and process of fully engaging in your life so you can fall in love with YOU. Why? So you can become the great lover of your life. 
    The PROBLEM is that often women (and men as well) suffer from one or more of four distinct syndromes that have caused more heartache and unnecessary loss than one can imagine.
    If you’re willing to explore the possibilities and process of becoming the great lover of your life, you can become the S.O.L.UTION that you seek.
    The Four Syndromes are:
    1. The Cinderella Syndrome.
    2. The Disengagement Syndrome.
    3. The Superwoman Syndrome.
    4. The Poor Me Syndrome.
    Once you’ve identified which one (or more) of these you’re suffering from, then we you discover the process and plan for healing.
    So you can fully engage in your life again, and fall in love you you, your life + life’s work.
    How? 
    There are Five Engagements Of A Great Lover.
    You must:
    1. Meet You.
    2. Know You.
    3. Value You.
    4. Be You.
    5. Love You.
    When you do, you can begin to romance (WOMANCE) YOU and YOUR LIFE like never before.
    This process of mastering the art of dating myself well has completely transformed my love…life. It’s done the same for many women, and it can for you too.
    Are you ready to learn, not only how to engage with your life, but to fully enter into the PROPOSAL of a fully engaged life of greatness?
    Then take the next step. Date Yourself Well.
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
    Go to WomenSippingOnLife.com and request your FREE copy of Date Yourself Well…The Best-Selling 12 Engagements of Becoming The Great Lover Of Your Life.

    It’s Not You It’s Me

    It’s Not You It’s Me

    In today's episode, I give you permission to be you, and to stop doing what's NOT you. If it's not you...then what is YOU?
    Where are you NOT being YOU in your life?
    Today’s SACRED S.O.L. STORY comes from my sweet little rescue dog, Stela.
    Recently she did something she had never before…while being a dog! And being a dog is what she does best, because she was designed to be a DOG, right?
    She was doing what dog’s do. We can’t blame, shame, or be upset at her for being a dog. 
    It’s not you. It’s me.
    So what’s not YOU?
    Where in your life are you trying to be something you’re not?
    You are who you are. Period.
    A dog is a dog. A fish is a fish. A human is a human. And a human like you is a human like YOU.
    I’m not saying this gives you license to proclaim, “Hey, that’s just me.” And to use it as an excuse to not grow, expand, learn, or discover.
    I’m talking about the core essence of who you are.
    Are you so busy trying to be somebody, be something…or do something, that you’re NOT being YOU?
    You’re already something and someone. You’re YOU.
    If you’re a fish, swim.
    Are you being YOU?
    It’s time to become masterful at the art of being you.
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage with yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
    1. Where in your life are you trying to FORCE yourself, and be something or someone you’re NOT?
    Please stop fighting yourself so much, my dear.
    2. Declare it for yourself today by giving yourself permission to be YOU.
    I’m giving you permission to be you. Acknowledge, accept, embrace, and celebrate you. Allow YOU to grow and expand.
    I’m giving you permission to love your life + life’s work well!
    Will you do this for yourself today?
