When a business hits a plateau or even a downturn, the business owner typically looks to the usual suspects: strategic planning, marketing, recruiting and developing better talent, setting new goals, and tactics to improve financial results.
These are all critical areas to constantly improve. But they are not enough.
Unfortunately, business owners sometimes ignore the one factor that might really be keeping their businesses from taking off: the business owner’s belief systems.
Many business owners have beliefs that limit their ability to grow ...
As I was writing another article on self-awareness, I was thinking about how difficult and draining it can be when we put so many others ahead of ourselves. The people that work in jobs where that quality of care is important are often the ones most affected by this type of energy drain.
I wanted to take a deeper look at this for those of you, my clients, friends and followers who are self-employed in a care-giving job. It could be you ...
Today is the first day of the rest of your life...
Blah, blah, blah...boring, right? What if you put a spin on it? What if...today was just today? This is not glib question, but really staying in just today - just for today.
How difficult is it to leave yesterday behind and not bring tomorrow into your thoughts or actions? This may seem difficult but just takes practice. First create a vision of what you want your life to be like then allow ...
There have been days as of late that I find myself standing in the middle of a room spinning. Not the kind you do as a kid with your arms wide looking up to the sky with puffy clouds and the sun peaking through. The kind where you can’t decide what to do next. I do know that this is temporary. My environment is not optimal at the moment with moving boxes everywhere and none of my “STUFF” anywhere nearby or ...
Life is Good!
Life will give you exactly what you need. Well it has for me – consistently.
Right now life is giving me a wee break to renew and energize with my beloved.
This is PERFECT!
Life really is GOOD!
Let me know what makes your life good.
I remember a commercial from decades ago told us if we did not like who we were we could “live it as a blonde”. As if changing our hair color was all we had to do. Is it really that simple? It has not been for me, how about you?
If you don’t like what’s happening to or around you – what are you doing about it?
If you want your life to be different who are you willing to become to be ...
Lao Tzu said, “When I let go of who I am, I become what I might be.”
So when you take a good long look in the mirror and connect with your truest self, who are you right now? This can depend on how open you are to outside information what that “who” description will look like. It could be a physical description with all the added stuff that you have done so far in life. It could be who you believe ...
Today I know what my purpose is and I can tell you that it took more than 50 years to find it. It is not apparent in all that I do, but I am getting closer daily. I believe God had guided me to be of service with what I have learned in my first 50 years. I expect to have another 50 as my mom’s mom lived to be 99! This purpose comes to me in the form of intuition. ...
Who’s driving your car?
You know how it works, you are a passenger in the car beside your spouse, family member or friend and you give unsolicited directions. “Turn at the next corner, it’s shorter.” “How come you don’t change lanes?” “Slow down! (to a crawl) – I am nervous when you ( not me) drive.”
It wasn’t that many months ago that it occurred to me after the words slipped quickly from my lips, that I may be not only trying to ...
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, ...
