• 4 Ways You’re Seriously Hurting Yourself and Others By Not Following Your Calling

    Think you’re doing yourself and others a favor by staying small in your safe ordinary life? Think again. If you follow me on Facebook, you know I’ve been reading Joel Comm’s, “The Fun Formula.” In it he says words so aligned with my own beliefs, I feel like I wrote them. Here he shares the first thing that way not following your purpose hurts others. You’re preventing the world from your gifts. “I believe that every single person who has ever walked the face of the earth was made with distinct passions and innate talents. We have an aptitude that inclines us toward specific skills and abilities that we pick…

  • When Change Isn’t Possible

    Say you’re in a job you despise, but can’t leave. Or you live in a place that doesn’t suit you, but financially you can’t pick up and go. There will be times when the best thing you can do is keep working that job and remain in that situation even if it’s making you unhappy. That feeling can leave you trapped like being stuck in a cage. It can make you feel victimized and powerless. But here’s where you take that power back. Yes you can’t move from the place you are right now, but there are things you can do to improve your mood, cut the chains of entrapment…

  • The Right Way to Use Intuition to Make Your Next Career Move

    We hear it all the time. People leave the safety of their steadfast careers only to become best-selling authors, millionaires and even famous talk show hosts. From Steve Jobs to Oprah who has said, “I’ve trusted the still, small voice of intuition my entire life. And the only time I’ve made mistakes is when I didn’t listen. For all the major moves in my life—to Baltimore, to Chicago, to own my show, and to end it—I’ve trusted my instincts,” successful people risk big. But not every opportunity is a good one. How do you know whether saying, “Yes,” will lead you down the right path or one towards financial loss and…

  • Sorry, but…

    You’ll never get there. You just don’t have what it takes. You’re not ____ (talented, smart, experienced, etc.) enough. Something tells me you have a voice like that one. It stays quiet until you’re about to do the big thing, the thing that will push you over from dreamer to doer.

    Okay you’ve read my posts on why you don’t want this year to be another replay of 2018 and why you don’t need stuff to get to your dreams. Now you’re ready or are you? We all want change. And we want change fast. But take it from someone who went to graduate school to learn how to help people change: no matter what great product or program you purchase, you won’t be successful unless you check one thing. How ready are you really? I believe we’re all in different seasons of change with tendencies to get stuck in one season. Spring people are full of ideas, each one more…

  • Don’t Be Disappointed in 2019

    I used to have friends that could not tolerate the subtle flake of disappointment. They fell apart if their favorite dish wasn’t up to par, which was the reason why we rarely ventured to new restaurants together. I didn’t get it. What’s the big deal if we’re subtly uncomfortable? Why does it matter if I didn’t order the seasonal flavor the last time and they’re out of season this time? Until I got older, and I too crumbled at the slightest slice of disappointment. What age uncovered is oodles of long-held disappointments. It’s not just that your meat was undercooked, it’s that you haven’t and maybe won’t ever finish that…
