Adventure. Adventure. Adventure.
That’s it in a nutshell … but I wanna expand on that.
As I’m walking down my entrepreneurial path as a Soul Empowerment Coach, I find that I am also running down the path as a mama-bear of two high school girls. Hand in hand is the glory of family and work. I’m tellin’ ya though, I’m running with my mind and arms wide open – wide wide open on this continuous journey to satiate my hunger, because no matter what “they” say, you can have your cake and eat it too!
Hungry to Learn
Hungry to Connect
Hungry to Inspire
Hungry to Teach
Hungry to Grow
Hungry to Glow
I often ask myself, what is it that moves people from being stuck in the muck, with all that self-sabotaging mindset madness … to a place high in the sky filled with competence and confidence? What keeps them hungry enough to keep gobbling up the nutrients that they need to flourish?
You know what? I think I figured it out!
It’s simple really …. we all know that each and every one of us has a part, a devastatingly HUGE part, in holding ourselves back from getting what we truly want, desire, deserve and dream of. We get in our own way of achieving things that we want to happen … because we aren’t really sure what we are hungry for?
It’s ADVENTURE – we’re all hungry for adventure!
But what does that really mean? We know life can be hard … we all have needs and dammit sometimes it can be pretty difficult to get those needs met! Nobody is put on this earth to do that except our own unique self. Whether the needs be in our personal life, our work life, family, marriage, social, physical, spiritual … we have to know what we want. We have to be willing to take a bite into new and inspiring adventures … but we have to be hungry!
So, here are the top 3 things that I love doing in my personal life, and with my amazing, adventurous clients:
AWARENESS: You can’t transform your life if you’re not aware of what you want to change and how you can change it. When you turn up the consciousness dial on your life, you will find all sorts of potential to set yourself free from the pain & suffering that your day to day life can bring you. It’s not fun when you are in the shit pit, but it’s even less fun when you don’t know that you are there. I love guiding women through their old stories to realize the patterns that are keeping them held back … so that they can create brand new adventurous stories. Out with the old and in with the new … right?
Start with this question: What current story that you are living, do you want to change? Get really specific with just one thing you want to change in your life (Hint: start small so you can gain confidence to do the big ones)
ACCOUNTABILITY: You know what it’s like having someone in our corner, to back you up and support you when you need that extra push! It’s not a secret that we get better results when we have a team behind us to listen to our ideas, our feelings, our challenges and our wins. I love guiding women through the mind muck to help them discover what is important for them to change in their life. We all know that others want us to change to fit their mold, but where do you look to for adventure, and who do you look to? Sure, we can do it ourselves – absolutely … but as we’re crossing the bridge from awareness to action, accountability is key. Whether they are small steps or big steps, having a cheer leader to keep you on track and accountable is part of my own personal definition of success.
Start with these questions:
– What’s your definition of adventure?
– How can you break free?
– Who can you get to support you more deeply?
ACTION: For those of us who love to feel the pride of success, this is the ultimate! Taking action. We can talk all we want about what we want to do, how we are going to do it, and when we are going to do it … and even who we are going to do it with. However, if we don’t do it … then it’s just garbage talk. See how it works – become AWARE of what you want. Find someone or somehow to keep you ACCOUNTABLE. Then simply jump off the bridge and take the action – regardless of the outcome. You may have heard of the 80:20 rule, well this is where it applies the most: STOP WAITING FOR THE PERFECT TIME & JUST DO IT! I didn’t get to where I am at by waiting, I’ll tell you that much. I had to quit my job, and yes, it was hard! I had to jump into learning all of this business stuff, and yes, it was hard. I had to challenge myself to show up when I didn’t feel like it, and yes, it was and still is hard. But damn, we are human BEings … and we’re meant to do hard. That’s why we have our brain, so that we can figure things out!
Start with this question: When am I going to do what I want to do? Pick a date, and reverse engineer the steps to get there.
Soooo – what’s blocking you? The answer to our problems always lies inside of us … we just need the right people in our lives to support us ’cause I can tell you for certain, that we’re not meant to do it on our own!
