Limiting Beliefs

Limiting beliefs have plagued my life for as long as I can remember. The difference between now and the past is that I actually know what limiting beliefs are and how to identify them. The problem today is whether or not I stop long enough to check-in with myself to identify the limiting beliefs floating through my mind. No matter how much I learn … Read More Limiting Beliefs

NQTD

When you make a decision, how often do you question it? Are you like me and question most decisions you make? No? Okay, well maybe this isn’t for you then. Yes? Oh then stay tuned. Why do we question decisions? I have learned that I question my decisions because I haven’t trusted myself. It’s a sad realization and a challenging one to overcome. It … Read More NQTD

What Are You Committed To?

Are you committed to your goals or to your excuses? Do you even know? I used to think that I was committed to my goals, but I kept making excuses. I had some goals that yes, I was absolutely committed to. I wanted to have a better life than my parents. I wanted to explore the world. I wanted to make something of myself. … Read More What Are You Committed To?

It’s Easy For Her…

…there is no way I could ever be like her. Have you ever thought that? I have. It is defeating. It is depressing. But there is so much wrong with that thought. It took me years to realize it and learn how to overcome it every time that I encountered it. Now, I see that others might be thinking the same thing about me. … Read More It’s Easy For Her…

Your Thoughts Will Run or Ruin Your Life

  I have lived within my thoughts all of my life. My thoughts ran and at some points, ruined my life. We have been programmed without even knowing it and that programming turns into our thoughts, both unconscious and conscious. These thoughts are what contributes to how we act, our anxiety, our depression, and what we pursue. Kara Loewentheil teaches about thought work and … Read More Your Thoughts Will Run or Ruin Your Life

I Need A Mentor

I need a mentor. You need a mentor. How the hell do I find a mentor?! I’ve asked myself this question for years. I’ve always heard successful people talking about their mentors and how they recommend everyone having a mentor. But I didn’t know how to find one who would take me on as a mentee. Do I just find someone that I look … Read More I Need A Mentor

My Own Path

When I first started out on this journey with this blog, I was under the impression that once I hit it big and was making good money, I would quit my project management career and be a full-time blogger. I then advanced that thought to becoming a well-respected life coach. Either way, I saw the only option of being a life coach as my … Read More My Own Path

I’m An Overthinker

Overthinking is what I do best. I can and will overthink for just about anything. It is truly a problem. Are you an overthinker? Overthinking affects our lives more than we probably would like to admit. We zero in and focus on a specific topic and think about all the possibilities. Usually, the possibilities that we think about are negative. Whether you are ruminating … Read More I’m An Overthinker

Why Personal Development?

I thought I would take a moment to give you a little history on how I got here, to this blog, to wanting to become a life coach. It all started (damn I sound old) when I opened my mind to Beachbody coaching. Nope, I’m not selling you on anything, I am no longer selling the product. I had wanted to workout but couldn’t … Read More Why Personal Development?

I Expect A Lot

I expect a lot. A lot from myself. A lot from others. I expect that people will show some fucking common courtesy and stop being dumb. Like, why do you feel the need to do a fucking U-turn right outside the crosswalk in front of Costco?!?! Seriously! My mother-in-law was with us when I was complaining about this. I didn’t go full road rage, … Read More I Expect A Lot

Other People’s Opinions

I have lived most of my life trying to please what I thought were other people’s opinions of me. I lived in fear and shame because I never thought I could meet other people’s expectations. I made myself smaller and smaller and I bottled up all of my own personality so I could be liked. I wanted to be loved. I wanted to meet … Read More Other People’s Opinions
