#009 - How to Create Affirmations that Work

Have you told yourself how great you are today (AND meant it!) ? There is no better time than right this second to remind yourself how amazing of a human you are!

We're talking ALL about affirmations this week and how they give us the mental boost we need to push through barriers and believe in ourselves!

The term affirmation occasionally confuses people, so to start, let me tell you exactly what an affirmation is. An affirmation is a declaration or a confirmation about a current truth. For an affirmation to work, it needs to be 100% true about you, your current moment, your environment, or your state of being.

With that being said, let's talk about why affirmations are SO important in the life-changing, goal-creating process! The research is there: using affirmations to try and change what you think by proclaiming a non-truth can actually decrease self-esteem AND make matters worse. It is SO, SO important to only speak the truth when you are writing your...

#008 - How to Keep a Vision Journal

We are over half way through the first month of the new year! Can you believe it?! 

Time is flying and not waiting around for us to decide what our next step is going to be. Have you mapped out what your goals for this year are going to be? It is so easy to get stuck in the day to day grind, but if you ever want that grind to change, you're going to have to plan, visualize, and get after those goals! 

Visualization is SUCH an important part of not only creating goals, but also accomplishing them. You need to be able to *see* where you are, where you want to be, and how you're going to get there. One of my favorite ways to start visualizing is creating a Vision Journal. 

Vision journaling is a way to manifest, build, produce, and craft future events, goals, and outcomes -- crafting the world you want by putting it down on paper. DO NOT get a vision journal confused with a process journal. While a process journal is a great tool, it is totally different than a vision...

#007 - Reverse Engineer Your Life: Setting Goals for a Lifetime

We survived the first week of 2021! We are officially into the new year and I hope you’re feeling motivated and ambitious! Are you visualizing what this year is going to look like for you? I hope so! You need to "see" to believe, my friend! 

Last week I talked to you about that scary BIG, HAIRY, AUDACIOUS GOAL (BHAG for short)...which I really hope you’ve started thinking about! Is it intimidating? Heck yeah!...but anything really worth going after is always going to be a liiiitle scary. 

This week, I am going to answer the question, “How do I create a vision for my WHOLE life?” I know, I know.. That is A LOT to think about. Don’t worry, today I am going to break it down into bite size pieces! 

Visualizing is nothing more than mentally rehearsing what is going to happen in the future. I want you to visualize what your future life looks like. Is that before, or after, you BHAG? When you visualize, you will think up a specific outcome or...

#006 - Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals

2020 did a number on all of us. How the heck are we going to make 2021 an exciting, worthwhile year? What changes do we need to make? What rituals do we need to institute? WHERE DO I START?!  It’s all about getting pumped up and setting our BIG goals for the year (I mean REALLY big goals!) 

This week I’m talking ALL about BIG, hairy, audacious goals (BHAG for short) and how to get the ball rolling! 

First off, what is a BHAG? I’m so glad you asked!

A BHAG is a LONG term goal that pushes you to achieve something AMAZING, MIND-BLOWING, OUT OF THIS WORD SPECTACULAR!

This goal may seem out of reach when thinking about it, which is EXACTLY why this goal is the one to go for in 2021! A BHAG pushes you to be creative and use your imagination, but also is there to give you that “can do” attitude! While it may feel like there is NO WAY you could possibly achieve this thing -- you totally can! 

Does this intimidate you? That’s good! A...

#005 - An Appointment With Numero Uno

These days I'm hearing many of my clients and even friends talk about how frazzled, stressed, and anxious they are. There's indeed a heaviness with all of us right now, but it's also more than that. On today's lovecast, I'm answering the question, “How do I refocus and renew for 2021?"

As hard as it is, we have to refocus for 2021, and I believe we can make this an amazing year despite how bad 2020 has been. I’m giving you 5 strategies for making yourself a priority on today’s podcast.

5 Strategies to Pencil Yourself In:

  1. Use a visual calendar.
  2. Add in sleep (a big chunk of time)
  3. Add in time you give to others.
  4. Eyeball your calendar to see what you’re giving away to others when you could be giving to yourself
  5. Schedule in your biggest self-love priorities in open spaces
    • Prioritizing your self-care means you value yourself.
    • Say no to others (while saying yes to yourself)
    • An appointment with yourself is still an appointment
    • Don't forget to schedule in...
