Are you practicing what you preach?

I was just vividly reminded that life is a reflection of one’s self. A great example of this is… I have a client that does not want to pre-schedule follow up sessions with me. My client (who we will call Bob) wants to schedule the next follow up when we speak each time. This is […]

What makes an Olympic athlete so great?

I have gotten a whole new perspective on Olympic athletes with the winter games. I am constantly amazed at how much drive and determination these people have. The hours of practice; the setbacks; the ups and downs, … the list just goes on. What makes Apolo Ohno or Lindsey Vonn (or any other Olympian for that matter) different from […]

Are you insane?

I don’t know about you, but I KNOW that I am. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing expecting different results. Well… that is exactly what I have been doing. I have been going through my morning ritual but acting like it is something different when in fact it is not. And to […]

What are you NOT seeing?

I told you about the square on the wall in my office that was not painted for more than one year. Well we finally painted it. I look at it now and am very thankful to my wonderful husband for getting the job done. What I am amazed about is that I have to force […]

What holds you back?

The process of doing this blog and developing my success habits has revealed a lot to me. The last few days have been rather difficult and insightful. I am trying to grow as a person and business owner. I have found that frequently it does not go at the pace I would prefer. Through this […]

Are you taking a day off?

I gave myself permission to take the day of not too long ago. It was approximately 22 days ago, but who is counting. What I have realized that when you skip one day, the habit is not so ingrained that you automatically resume. You have to stay on top of it. One day is not […]

Are you waiting for everything to be right?

I keep waiting for all the conditions to be right. Will they ever be? Maybe. However, the realistic answer is no. The stars, moon, planets, and all of the other things in life will not be in perfect alignment for ___________ (whatever you want it to be). For me, it has been, among many things, […]

New problems?

Problems change, they don’t go away. It is easy to think that if you change your opportunities or circumstance and make things better, it will be better. It is like thinking that “rich people” don’t have problems. “Rich people” can’t possibly have the same problems as “poor people.” That is a partial truth. Rich and […]

Do you know what your purpose is?

Well T. Harv Eker, author of Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, has done it again. I was trying to decide what to write about, when I read his blog. Although I connected the dots before he wrote his January 29th post; it says it all. When working on my goal planning for the year, I […]

Are you evolving?

Everything in life is a process of evolution. We learn new habits, both good and bad, and they evolve in your life. Through this process, I have had the realization that I am evolving. The way in which I look at things is changing. When I began doing my daily ritual, it was tough. Not […]
