You Can Get UNSTUCK. Here's How...

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

I honor where you are, and for what you have accomplished up to this point.

It’s often easy to lose sight of the lives we’ve touched, the progress we’ve made and what we have given to others. This affects our momentum, motivation and confidence, so please do take a moment for self gratitude, and the good you have already put into the world.

If you are feeling "stuck," it may be time for an Ambition Checkpoint.

This is a world-class tip to help you reassess what stage of life you are in, what’s important to you, and what your next move is.

I believe it's time for you to show up in this world as you are meant to. It’s time to next-level what matters most to you. It’s time to understand that you have the greatness within you already. That the world is conspiring to coax it out of you, and that the world desperately needs to see it.

It’s time for you to inspire others to do the same by leading as...

4 Confidence Tips to Achieve Your Next BIG WIN

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

It’s time! If you feel like you deserve more, it’s time to go after it.

There are many reasons why we (yes, me included:) avoid the crucial conversations or steps required to next-level our ambitions and desires. Whatever is holding you back, rest assured it’s 100% normal and OK, but not conducive for the progress you want to see.

Whatever it is for you, there are tools you can learn to gain the confidence required to achieve whatever it is that you want and deserve.

Here’s how to get started!

  1. Believe
    Believe what you want is possible AND that you deserve it. This is a vital first step that must be explicit in your mind. If you are not 100%, try writing daily affirmations and and saying them out loud every night and every...

The Real Secret for Leveraging Mental Toughness to Rock Disruption

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

We all face the threat of someone or something disrupting our status quo.

The mere thought of disruption can be paralyzing or it can be a secret weapon. It’s all in your mindset and what you choose to do with it.

Here’s one tip to leverage Mental Toughness to rock disruption so you can get aggressive today about planning how to rise above the rest tomorrow: Keep this in mind, and you’ll be on your way to using a tool you already have in a way that most people don’t know about.

Here’s how: Use fear to drive progress.

In order to foster creativity, productivity and courage it’s important to use this emotion to your benefit rather than to your detriment. Fear can be paralyzing or it can be a super power. It depends on your mindset, how you perceive it.

Quick Guide to Gaining World-Class Clarity (Take the "Get to Know Yourself" Questionnaire)

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

Lack of clarity is the death of productivity AND joy.

I’ve seen it personally (... yes, I admit it!), and I’ve seen it in countless individuals and organizations. Whether it’s clarity on any given day, for a project or for a long-term mission, clarity is more important than you may even realize.

See, what we think and what we say to ourselves over and over again... we tend to believe. Take it even a step further. These thoughts and comments we make to ourselves (our internal dialogue) can manifest in our actions and eventually in the life we create for ourselves.

Clarity is the starting line for our best and most joyous selves.

Our ship needs to know where to sail, and we must believe the destination is not too remote. We must also know WHY we care so deeply... really why.

Leroy Dixon is a 2x Olympian and gold medalist in track and field. In a recent interview, I was surprised to learn, Dixon doesn’t even like track...

3 Steps to Build the Influence You Want and Deserve

 

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

There is a misconception about influence that it is reserved for the elite few or for those in positions of authority.

We all have ideas, feelings and wisdom that deserve to be heard AND that may have a profound impact on others. I almost look at it as an obligation. Whether you feel like you are influential or not, you can learn to become more influential, and it starts with gaining an influential mindset.

Keep in mind that you believe what you consistently tell yourself, so use your internal voice wisely! You may have to be an actor or actress in the beginning.

I DON'T mean "fake it until you MAKE it."

I DO mean, "fake it until you BECOME it."

The first step to gaining the influence at work OR at home, is to believe that what you desire is possible.

Fortunately, there's a great tool you can use to do just that! It's a positive affirmations app that myself and my 1:1 clients...

Remarkable Tactics to Make This YOUR Breakout Year

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

In this week's Facebook Live video we talked about the importance of dreaming big.

Consider the following, and start thinking about YOUR big dream:

  • In 1976, Steve Wozniak shared with Hewlett Packard (his employer at the time) the idea of creating a personal computer. He was rejected. So he and his friend Steve Jobs got to work themselves on their dream of individual creativity for each user
  • Martin Luther King had a dream that someday there would be equality for all.
  • When Michael Phelps was 7 years old, he had a dream that there were no limits on what he could achieve.

Is there anything big or small that you dream of doing? Maybe a trip, running a half marathon, a career change? The books Peak and Talent Is Overrated are just two (but impactful) books that have proven over and over that you are only limited by what you think is possible. So start dreaming big!

Why is this SO important?

Believe It and Become It.
