Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I want to share some thoughts in response to what do I do when I am in a funk?  There’s this weird message (unspoken) in social media, building an online business, of what do I do when I am in a funk? Or even more ridiculously, assuming people in the online space don’t have off days or that they’re in a funk.  That is when we’re not even being fair, reasonable with ourselves.  That is where comparison can be a really slippery slope. In this episode, we discuss: 1)  How to identify when you are in a funk, what does that look like for you, and how...

Ask Ask "What is This Teaching Me"

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I am sharing the go-to question, that I refer back to on a regular basis.  If we are always willing to learn and grow, and if we are asking for growth, then life will be forever teaching us lessons.  What we choose to make that mean is all on us. I have lived and embodied this question and lesson especially over the last month. In this episode, we discuss: 1)  We decide at any time what something is teaching us.  We are a victim of our circumstances or a the victor of our story.  We always get to decide. 2) How we all sign up for our soul contract and...

Is Perfectionism Stopping You? show art Is Perfectionism Stopping You?

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode I am talking about perfectionism and how it is a 20-ton block that we hold onto to keep ourselves “safe, protected and we believe unaffected by the potential opinions and judgements of others.”  As Brene Brown says, “If I look perfect, live perfect, work perfect, I can avoid or minimize criticism or blame.” Perfectionism is a learned behaviour that typically comes from childhood and a lot of times it is a block that we use to keep ourselves from being hurt, yet all it is doing is keeping us from being seen.  In this episode we discuss: 1) I am a recovering...

The Power of Your VoiceIn this episode, I am sharing some thoughts and misconceptions when it comes to “finding your voice”.  You actually don’t need to find your voice.  You haven’t lost it or never had it, you haven’t used it because you are waiting to feel confident, to trust it or to find a way to avoid criticism or judgments from others who might disagree with your message. In this episode, we discuss: 1)  Action breeds confidence.  The only way to start to build confidence is to get into action.  Let it be messy, not perfect, this is how you let others...

In this episode, I am sharing the some thoughts on boundaries, what we allow, how to recognize when we are carrying things that don’t serve us, and some practical tips for how to work though the process of letting go when we realize that we are carrying things that are not ours to carry.  This is a concept that affects and impacts so many of us, especially when it comes to building a business in the online space, as well as so many of us being disconnected or hiding behind our phones or devices.

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I want to share a concept on boundaries that hit home recently. Boundaries start with clarity about where you are feeling some anxiety in your life.  Ask yourself what is missing, where you are feeling anxiety and what you know is missing.  You know the answers.  In this episode, we discuss: 1)  Boundaries start with our values, and clarity on our values makes it easier for all the yes’ and no’s you will follow through with in your life and business. 2) Boundaries are a moving line, like a bubble.  Not a hard line in the sand with no negotiating...

More Episodes

In this episode, I am getting a little spicy as I talk about this fear that we have over going backwards in our life and business. We are constantly judging ourselves and comparing ourselves to others, so it gives us the vision and insight that stops and blocks us.
 

In this episode, we discuss:

1) If we are living a story on repeat, there is no strategy that will change, fix or allow us to grow.  It requires putting a spotlight on what isn’t working.

2) The steps, journey and meaning of the stories only has the meaning that we give it and put on repeat.

3) “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” ~ Soren Kierkegaard and this quote -  “Learn to see things backwards, inside out, and upside down.” ~ John Heider.  Don’t be afraid to go backwards first to see what is not working, to heal what has to be healed and to own what you need to own in order to move forward in the most powerful way possible.
