Raise your hand if you’ve ever experienced burnout or complete mental, emotional, physical, professional, or spiritual exhaustion? Me, too. In this video I discuss my solution for recovery and it may or may not involve multiple bowls of “Lucky Charms.”
When I’m learning and expanding my world view, it’s not uncommon for me to experience discomfort alongside the learning. Typically that discomfort appears in the form of doubt, anxiety, frustration, a desire to quit, self distrust, fear of the future, or distractions.
The good news is none of that is the “real” YOU; it’s your ego. And your ego has a really loud voice so we have a tendency to pay attention to the loudest voice. . . until we train ourselves to listen to a different voice.
In this video I talk about the differences between those two voices in your head.
Just when you thought you had that sneaky “victim” mentality under control and had stepped fully into your own, those old thoughts and stories come creeping back and taking over your thinking again! Don’t worry! That’s completely normal. And completely fixable. With practice.
If I had a nickel for every time someone asked me about balance in my life. . . .
Ever wonder how to answer that question? Or how to create it in your own life? What IS balance, anyway? Does anyone have it? How did they achieve it? And better yet, how do they maintain the seemingly impossible? When you see someone else who apparently has it all together, do you long for a life that isn’t the one you’re currently living?
It’s okay. Let all that out. And watch this video.
I give you: A Discussion on Balance
Is fear creeping in on you again? When you’re experiencing the physiological “side effects” of fear, what do you do? Do you inadvertently hold your breath? Do you stop eating consistently? Do you bite your nails? Do you phone a friend? Do you . . . ?
What if FEAR is wearing a mask to make you THINK it’s fear, but it’s not actually?
That sneaky fear. . . always playing tricks on us.
You should probably watch just to find out what my drag queen name would be!
If you’re not hustling you’re not winning. Is that true? What is hustling, anyway? I want to suggest that what works (systems, programs, implementations, processes) for someone else may or may not work for you, but what will always work is for you to follow your commitment. If you’re committed, you’re “all in,” and when you’re “all in,” follow THAT commitment and you’ll know exactly what to do. That’s where the magic lies — inside of you.
Do you believe your “decision maker” is broken?
When you don’t trust yourself to make decisions, you aren’t making any decisions because you’re not willing to make a choice for fear of risking making the wrong choice.
No decision is final and when you watch this video I’ll provide you with some different perspective on all the choices we get to make along the journey.
What is commitment? No, really. When you truly COMMIT to something — what does that look and feel like? In this video we’ll discuss that specific question AND I have a special gift for you at the end of the video!
When we are rigidly attached to an outcome we set ourselves up for failure. Events are just neutral; they have meaning only when we assign meaning to the event. We can choose responses, rather than being attached to an expectation of others’ behavior or an event.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles is the classic movie reference I make in this episode!
