The GOOD, The BAD and the UGLY Have a Best Before Date

The good the bad and the ugly all have a best before date, and that day was yesterday. Today is new, as is tomorrow... and the next day. This is to remind us that this too (meaning everything) shall pass. It’s best not to spend too much time either celebrating or whining as it’s a new day and a new year, what are we going to do next?         As 2015 draws to a close, the business owner, entrepreneur and executive cannot help ...

Are you good enough?

I just want to start by saying (with not much humility) I just completed several exams where my abilities were assessed by Master Certified Coaches as “good enough” to receive my PCC or Professional Certified Coach for the ICF otherwise know as the International Coach Federation, the first and largest Association of Coaches worldwide! This is a HUGE achievement for any coach and most don’t do it because it is scary!  There are 3 levels of certification, ACC Associate Certified Coach (150+ hrs client coaching), PCC ... Read more

Evesdropping #2 “Eve has been shoulding all over herself!”

You met Eve last week in “Eve” a REAL client! Eve had come a long way in her quest for happiness and value in her first coaching session. Her next session began with thoughts about feeling guilty. Eve felt guilty about so many things. Guilt about not being the best mom, not doing enough of ‘this’ and even doing too much of ‘that’ at times…I know that you get what I am talking about. Some of you have been there, ... Read more

10 “Energizing” Habits #2…What feeds your soul?

What feeds your soul? Yeah, for me! Last week I kicked off “10 daily “energizing” habits and I for one did it! Well I did the first one, which was the plan, after all. I was a bit lazy on the weekend as I did some writing in advance, sort of. In reality I wrote every day as I was working on a new piece or editing one for the next day so it seems that is the nature of this beast. ... Read more

I am “committed” to myself…are you?

My Commitment to Myself as the Woman I was Meant to Be I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I won’t look back, slow down, back away or be still. My past is redeemed. My present makes sense. My future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, colourless dreams, and small vision, cheap living and dwarfed goals. I will work daily towards my goals. I will write daily for my spirit. I now live by Faith, lean on my Higher Power through prayer, ... Read more

Do you check out the water first or do you just jump?

Curiously, he looked off the dock at the lake in Hudson, Quebec. A bit later I noticed him looking into the in ground pool. Every time he would take a small step forward, he would take an even greater one back. It was as if he was wondering if he could walk on it- but wasn’t sure. Though this happened repeatedly throughout the day, he never did jump into the water. Max is a 6 year old husky shepherd/cross that we have ... Read more

Are Your Goals YOURS?

Are the goals you are working on yours? Does it feel like the road is paved in gold and it seems all you have to do is dream it and it becomes your reality or is it like slogging around the base of a mountain but not quite getting your footing to climb it or you can’t find the path? One reason may be that someone else set the goal for you. Not consciously but maybe they want something for you more than ... Read more

The Missing Ingredient of Achieving Your Goals

Setting goals gives us a feeling of starting anew. But if our goals aren't created properly, we are setting ourselves up for failure right from the start. So next time you create your goals, add this additional element to ensure your success. Not only do you want to write them down, look at them daily, and take deliberate action toward achieving them, but you also want to visualize them as if they have already happened. So... Want to lose 20 pounds? Visualize yourself 20 pounds lighter. Want ... Read more

A Little Motivation

A Little Motivation Pain doesn't tell you when you ought to stop. Pain is the little voice in your head that tries to hold you back because it knows if you continue you will change. Don't let it stop you from being who you can be. Exhaustion tells you when you ought to stop. You only reach your limit when you can go no further. - Unknown Related articles Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired: How I Fought Back and Got Fit (thehappyhousewife.com) That which ...

Are You in a Habit of Action or Inaction?

Action is fascinating because action is habitual. You can be the habit of action or the habit of inaction - both having dramatically different results. The more you create the habit of action, the more action you take. And the more you create the habit of inaction, the harder it is to get started. Which habit are you in? What holds you back? All it takes it the first step. Then another step. No one ever said it has to be the right step because ... Read more
