“Start by starting.” - Meryl Streep

It’s nice to daydream and set big goals for yourself, but for you to start seeing some real results in your life, you need to start putting some real stuff out there in the universe. And the best way to do that is to simply do one thing every single day in pursuit of your goals.

How to Make a Digital Vision Board in 5 Simple Steps

rocarshow

Last weekend, I went to the Hawaii Auto Show here in Honolulu. There were shiny models from all of the major car dealerships on the island, including some sports car brands I had never seen up close and in person before, like Ferrari! Now, I’m not much of a car enthusiast, but sitting in the driver’s seat of all those luxury cars helped me visualize what MY ideal car would be. And as you can see below, I now have a black BMW convertible on my digital vision board!

What is a digital vision board and why should you create one?

A digital vision board is a collection of images that represent your desired future in an online format. The two biggest benefits of digital vision boards is that you can take them with you wherever you go and they take less time to create than the traditional physical vision board. You can make as many versions you want for as many goals as you want!

8 Reasons Why You’re Not Making Any Money in Your Business (Some of These Might Make You Mad)

Why You’re Not Making Any Money in Your Business

As a coach, I feel like I’ve heard it all when it comes to helping people reach their business goals. I hear so many of the same excuses over and over again that I can almost finish someone’s sentence when they start down the path of self-sabotage. Given the hundreds of women I’ve worked with through my classes, courses, coaching programs and live training events, I thought it might be time for a little tough love to nudge you back into your power as a talented entrepreneur.

Here are some reasons why you might not be making the money you want in your business right now. Deep down, if you know any of these reasons are holding you back, don’t get mad, just commit to shifting your mindset and taking action.

3 Steps to Stop Giving Away Your Power

Train Tracks

“The most common way people give up their power is thinking they don’t have any.” – Alice Walker

One of the most exciting (and terrifying) lessons you can learn in your life is that you can do anything you want and no one can stop you. It’s even more eye-opening to realize that the only person holding you back is yourself.

Yes, you read that right.

YOU are the only person that can hold you back from making progress on your goals. We choose – whether consciously or subconsciously – who and what we let hold us back. And it’s time to do something about it before it’s too late.

It’s time to stop giving away your power.

If you’ve been struggling to make progress on the big goals you have for your life, these steps can help you tap into the motivation you need to move forward.

Are You Sabotaging Your Success by Waiting for the “Perfect Time?”

1267744_87396573

Every time I offer a new course, I get dozens of emails like this:

  • Aww man I have to work one of those nights so I won’t be able to attend all the live calls! Will you be offering the course again?
  • This is exactly where I am in my life right now. I NEED this course! But I don’t have the funds. When will you offer it again?
  • I really want to work with you in the course, but the timing of the calls is off for me since I live on the west coast/another country. When you offer the course again, can you please hold the calls at a different time of the day?

Do you notice a theme in any of these questions? Yep, they all focus on the possibility of me teaching the course in the future instead of taking advantage of the transformation that’s being offered right now.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a personal development course that could help someone change their lives or an entrepreneurship class that could help someone build their business and make more money. I’ve been teaching online courses since 2010 and I can count on one hand the number of people who actually take action if and when there is a “next time.” So if you’ve ever emailed me with one of those questions, you probably received a loving, yet direct invitation from me to shift your mindset and not count yourself out.

I can stand in a place of integrity and ask people to make empowered decisions because I’ve been there. I’ve done it myself. I’ve made the excuse of not having the money or the time or wasn’t ready or whatever. Now that I think about it, every time there’s been a life-changing opportunity placed in front of me, I honestly DID NOT have the money or the time and I certainly didn’t feel “ready.” But a few years ago, I made the decision to stop focusing on what I didn’t have and find a way to get what I needed.

A Daily Gratitude Practice to Attract More Abundance into Your Life

gratitude journal

I love this gratitude journal by Catherine Price!

“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle or you can live as if everything is a miracle.” - Albert Einstein

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned over the past year is how the spirit of gratitude can positively impact your life. Although I don’t have every thing I want, somehow I ALWAYS have every thing I need. And acknowledging just how blessed I am has caused even more blessings to pour into my life this year – in the form of people, opportunities and even income.

Studies have shown that cultivating a sense of thankfulness in your everyday life is also good for your mental health and emotional well-being. Psychologist Robert Emmons demonstrated this in the research for his book Thanks!: How the New Science of Gratitude Can Make You Happier, finding that:

How to Set a Positive Intention for the Week

file251272828278

“A good intention clothes itself with sudden power.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Even though I work from home, the beginning of the week always feels “busy.” As soon as I wake up on Mondays, I sense looming deadlines. All I hear in my brain is go go go ring ring ring do do do. Needless to say, it’s not the most conscious way to enter the week!

To help me get centered in my life and work, I like to start the week off by setting a positive intention.

This is a practice that extends from my years of writing poetry. One of my professors would always instruct us to “get centered” by sitting still in a quiet place before beginning to write. Setting weekly intentions has helped me reduce the feeling of overwhelm in my business. There’s always so much to do – so many emails to respond to, so many great projects to work on, so many people to connect with, etc. This strategy has helped me to get focused and stay productive each and every week.

When should you set your weekly intention? Well, it’s best if you can do this exercise at the beginning of the week, on a Sunday or Monday. But you can and should feel free to do it on any day and at any time you have a moment to sit down and be still.
