Being Religious Won’t Guarantee a Happy Life

By |2018-10-22T07:52:05+00:00October 11th, 2018|Others|4 Comments

Are you religious? Most of the stay-at-home moms I know are. I'm not surprised because so many of us see stay-at-home motherhood as a divine calling. Although religion can be a great help, religious rituals alone don't guarantee happiness, especially if you’re only going through the motions. I can say from experience, you will never feel real joy until you experience God’s presence. Besides, if your religion boils down to passed down routines, traditions, and habits that lack a spiritual connection, then does it really have value at all? There are many people attending Sunday School, singing in the choir, [...]

Strengthen Your Wings… And Fly!

By |2017-09-15T12:13:32+00:00November 10th, 2014|Others|Comments Off on Strengthen Your Wings… And Fly!

I'm very excited! Today is the US release of the book I wrote with 18 amazing authors from my One Degree Shift community. The book is a beautiful collection of stories written to encourage you on your purpose path. One thing I'm sure of is that after you read these stories you will be inspired, strengthened, and changed. I know this is true because we are not the same after writing it. In the book, I share a story of how I built a wall of restraint around my heart to keep pain at a distance, and later realized how [...]

Three Ways to Be a More Powerful Communicator

By |2017-09-15T12:43:30+00:00August 5th, 2014|Others|2 Comments

Several times a year, I work with entrepreneurs in a small group coaching program to improve their communication skills. I just completed this intensive workshop a couple of weeks ago. During this five-week program, we dig deep and cover not only how to be a more powerful communicator, but we also uncover the internal blocks that mute your voice and cause you to disappear. I will offer the program again soon, watch for it, and if you’re ready to speak more confidently then join me. Here are three strategies that I teach in the Communicate with POWER program. 1. Know [...]

No Is a Complete Sentence

By |2017-09-15T12:49:36+00:00July 23rd, 2014|Others|5 Comments

Have you ever said yes to something you really didn't want to do? I have. I've said yes for several reasons. I didn't want to disappoint the other person, so I said yes. Sometimes, I’ve felt so darn guilty that I caved in. At other times, I felt put on the spot and pushed in a corner. More times than not, I've regretted when I agreed to do something that I didn't want to do. Then there were the times when I did have the courage to say no, but my response was so abrupt that it came off a [...]

Make A Shift To Purposeful Action

By |2017-09-15T12:53:30+00:00June 21st, 2014|Others|Comments Off on Make A Shift To Purposeful Action

Here's a post from my Facebook timeline. See if you can relate to it. I asked life, "Why are you so difficult?" Life smiled and said, "You people never appreciate easy things." If you're anything like me (and I suspect we're alike in many ways), you may get busy doing a lot of activity but not seeing a lot of results. You know what I mean? There is a difference between ACTION and ACTIVITY. Activity will keep you spinning your wheels but not making any progress. As Stephen Covey teaches in his book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, [...]
