Joy Is Created, Not Consumed

Tags:

I needed a little fresh air this afternoon so I took a quick break to carry my trash out. Yup, that's what a break looked like today. Anyways, while I was walking, a thought popped into my head: Joy is something I create, not something I consume.

Stop Ignoring This Serious Problem

Tags:

I can totally appreciate thinking about & classifying food based on whether it helps you achieve your physique goals or not. However, that's a limited perspective that can come back to bite you. When you only think of food through the filter of weight loss/weight gain or indulging/not indulging, you're really missing some critically important considerations for your health, energy and vitality. If you'd rather listen to this blog than ...Read More

Defensiveness & A Deficit Mindset

Tags:

Last year I went out to dinner with my mom & my sister. As we waited for our meal I asked if they would indulge me in a little experiment. I wanted one of them to share a problem or a challenge they were having but they had to share it in the form of a question.

Lies That Hold You Hostage

Tags:

Yesterday I posted a quote on Instagram that probably makes people nod & agree, but that's not enough. That's really, really not enough. This quote should change you. It should move you to action. It should prompt you to sit down and ask yourself, "what are the lies that are holding me hostage?" (If you'd rather listen to this blog post than read it, please click here to listen on ...Read More

How To Win The 5 Year Game

Tags:

Marketing tycoon Gary Vaynerchuk says that you win the 5 year game by winning the 5 minute game.

Positivity Pledge

Tags:

What we achieve, or fail to achieve, depends largely on our attitude & mindset. That's why I created a positivity pledge for everyone who attended ASCEND Nashville back in 2016. As I get prepared for a life-changing weekend at ASCEND Boston in November, I was going back through the workbook from last year. One of the first pages is the positivity pledge & I thought I'd share it with you. ...Read More

Fear Decisions Or Growth Decisions?

Tags:

I am an introvert. For real, it's true. It hasn't always been that way but absolutely has been for the last 10-15 years. I am consciously choosing to not let my shyness be a barrier to connection but rather to break down that barrier, choice by choice.

You Have To Push

Tags:

If you want different results, you're going to have to make different choices. You'll reach a point where your current choices take you as far as they can & if you want to go further, you've got to push harder or work smarter. You cannot go to the gym every day & do the same workout with the same weights and expect your body to continue to change. It won't. ...Read More

Action is the Antidote

Tags:

Sometimes I'm in a funk. Whether it's hormones, circumstances, fatigue, my own negative thoughts or a combination, the funk feels very real. In the past, I'd let the funk win. It would suck me in, I'd feed into it with my thoughts, words & actions and it would become quite powerful (read: destructive). I felt like I was a victim of the funk. It felt paralyzing - like the funk ...Read More
