The world needs your brightness. We need your light. We need the unique gifts, talents and passions that you bring to the table. We need you.

So why don’t you let your uniqueness shine? Express yourself…your real self!

Stop hiding or dimming your light. Choose now, choose today, to begin to let your authentic light shine.

Define Success In Your Terms

By |January 27th, 2015|

definesuccess

What would be possible if you defined success in your own terms and moved forward toward that vision?

How liberating would it be to define success for yourself instead of following a one-size-fits-all definition of success?

Take a moment to reflect on what success means to you. What would it look like if you were to achieve authentic success? What would that kind of success feel like to achieve?

When you define success in your own terms, you start living life on your own terms. Be different. Be you.

Document The Journey

By |January 21st, 2014|

Taking the time to document the journey and learn from it can help you to uncover new insights about what empowers you and what gets in your way. It can help you to gain clarity on what is propelling you forward and what is stopping you in your tracks.

Journaling allows you to peel back the layers, access your core truths and increase your level of personal awareness. It also allows you to celebrate your accomplishments and progress.

When we learn, we grow. When we grow, we move forward. When we move forward, we are able to sustain changes.

Flourishing Practice

Consider taking a […]

Know How You Want To Feel

By |January 17th, 2014|

Do you know how you want to feel in your work, career or life? How would you feel if your heart-felt intentions manifested? Can you imagine how you would feel if you achieved your business, professional or personal goals this year? Try to tap into these feelings.

Too often we set out to pursue a goal or make a change without having a compelling motivation. We say things like “I want to lose weight,” or “I want a new job,” or “I want more clients.” But we forget to infuse those goal statements with meaning and motivation. We don’t feel into them. When […]

Stop “Shoulding” On Thyself

By |January 16th, 2014|

Shoulding on thyself involves the act of trying to motivate yourself using the word: should.  The reality is that using ‘shoulds’ as a motivating force isn’t very motivating.

Shoulds limit you. They keep your world small and keep you stuck firmly in your comfort zone. Shoulds are a demotivating and disempowering force. They dim your light and your ability to wholeheartedly contribute, feel soul-satisfied and flourish.

Sometimes we give our inner critic carte blanche and let it have a field day telling us what we should do, think or feel. Other times we give too much credence to the people in our […]

Intentions, Goals & Affirmations

By |January 14th, 2014|

Once you’ve identified your top three priorities, take a few moments to map them out and set an overarching goal, intention statement or affirmation for each focus area. What is it that you would like to accomplish or see change within each major priority area?

Goal Statements

Goal statements utilize straightforward language and are frequently written in the future tense. (e.g. “I will get a new job in 2012.”) It is a common practice, especially in the business world, to write S.M.A.R.T goals. S.M.A.R.T. goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. (e.g. “I will make 5 new connections each month, increasing my […]

Remember Yourself!

By |January 13th, 2014|

When you are looking at your life, work, and career priorities, one of the most important things is to make sure you are also taking into account your own personal needs, growth and well-being. The Self Role is all about caring for your body, mind and spirit.

This is a critical role but often the most neglected role, especially for women who tend to put caring for and connecting with others before caring for self. It is vitally important to consider yourself a priority in your own life and to balance your career, work and/or business priorities with your personal life […]

Balancing Your Roles

By |January 10th, 2014|

Another great way to think about narrowing your focus is to think in terms of balancing the roles you play in life. Throughout our adult years, women typically distribute their time across a combination of 7 primary roles: Self, Mother, Daughter, Couple, Friend, Work and Community. Notice that work is just one of the 7 roles.

The nature of our roles and the amount of time we devote to our roles changes and shifts as we go through life. We are not necessarily active in all 7 roles at all times. Different decades (e.g. 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, etc.) and personal and […]

Celebrating 2013

By |December 30th, 2013|

As you wrap up 2013, consider spending a few minutes taking stock of your 2013 journey and celebrating your growth, contributions and accomplishments.

In our fast moving culture where our eyes tend to be strongly focused on the prize ahead, we forget to routinely acknowledge and celebrate our progress along the way. Instead, we tend to focus more on what we have yet to accomplish and on what has tripped us up along the way.

“Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey!”—Barbara Hoffman

So take a few minutes over the next few days to celebrate and acknowledge YOU and […]
