FEARLESS FRIDAY

I’m calling today – FEARLESS FRIDAY.  

.

Being fearless doesn’t mean never having fear, it’s about what do we do with the fear.  We each have fears.  It could be fear of failure or fear of success (Yes there is that fear also).

 

A big one that I see all the time is the fear of not being Enough – 

  • good enough

  • smart enough

  • have enough

  • do enough

  • have enough money for today

  • have enough money for the future

  • afraid of the economy

  • afraid they aren’t perfect

  • afraid they don’t measure up.

.

YIKES!  That is a lot of Fear. We can’t handle all of that right now in this short time, so today, release one fear.

.

How about stop being afraid that you aren’t perfect . . . that is the easiest one.  Really, I’m not kidding.  Perfection is an illusion, and we can spend so much of our time trying to be perfect that we miss out on living. It is a mental release. How about thinking “I’m going to do my best and then move on”, then congratulate yourself.

.

Today enjoy each moment, do what you need to do.  I’m not saying to not do your best, just it doesn’t have to be perfect. Take the pressure off.

.

Basically just do it, finish it, and move on.  You don’t need to tweak it to death (and Yes that one is for me, I can tweak forever).  

.

Whatever you are going to do this weekend, just do it, cook it, watch it, sew it, bake it, wash it… whatever… and realize that the doing is better than it having to be perfect.

.

You have permission to Not be perfect.  SMILE!

 .

Something to think about.

So often we say I want … to lose weight, get a new job, go on a cruise, take a family vacation, etc.  The problem is we talk and talk about it but never really do anything.  

.

A friend of mine wanted to take a family vacation but it wasn’t in the family budget, so she made a definite plan to reach her goal. First she checked the info and found out how much it would cost to take the family on their dream vacation; the hotel, the theme park, food, etc.  Once she had that amount, in this case I think it was $3000.  She sat down with her family and they made a plan.  They all wanted to help.  Any extra jobs they took, babysitting, odd jobs, an extra hours that Mom or Dad worked went directly into the special bank account for the trip.  They had a big jar and would put money in until it was filled and then took to the bank to deposit in their Special’ account. Pretty great idea isn’t it.  They all helped.

.

Now here is a big part of this too.  They made it visual by making a big thermometer poster and kept it right in the kitchen for all to see.  Each time they put money in the account, they colored in the poster.  Imagine their excitement  when they reached the top! Actually went over – WOW! It was a success,  and they were able to go sooner than they thought.

Think on these things… the answers will give you that definite goal that you need.

  • What are you talking about?  

  • What is it that you want?

  • What will it take?

  • What are some steps you can take?

  • Who do you need to talk to?

  • When is your goal date?

QUESTION:  What is ONE thing you want?

702.510.1212

Ladies – I can’t wait to see you August 4 & 5!

Life is about choices … Maybe you need a little help figuring it out, maybe you need some new ideas… 

I’d love to help you face your fears and walk toward your dreams, maybe help you get unstuck and move forward, or possibly just show you how to be more positive.  Call or email now to set up a Complimentary Discovery session or click calendar to schedule a time. 

Hang Back or Engage? It might be scary.

When you are in uncomfortable or a new environment do you hang back and watch OR do you smile, walk in and begin to engage in conversation?  When you face these new situations you have the opportunity to make new friends, meet your next client or maybe even find the answer to a problem you are having. You will never know until you open yourself up and give it a try.

 

.

First start with a smile.  You might be surprised how few people actually smile at each other, so when you smile, it encourages others to smile back.  Walking into a meeting, an event, or even visiting a church for the first time, can be intimidating and a little scary. So gear up, put your SMILE on, and just be ready to say HI!

I know this sounds so simple, so ordinary, but the truth is… it is extraordinary.  We have the chance to make a difference, and think how great it will be when most of the people start smiling because you  had the courage to do so.

 

That is the first step to engaging in conversation.  

The second step is simple also. Ready?  Ask the other person about THEM.  (It’s not about you…whew.  Doesn’t that make you feel better?!)  Yes, most everyone I’ve ever met likes to tell about themselves, so ask them… (Oh and make sure it is not a YES or NO kind of question.)

.

  • Where they work,

  • Are they married

  • Do they have children,

  • How long have they lived in town, or where do they live 

Oh and of course…

  • What do they do

The more interested you are in them the easier the conversation.  Trust me it is true.  (That’s another point, be interested in them, listen and be present in the conversation).

So there you go.  Engage the room by smiling and asking interesting questions. You will feel much better AND it will be easier the next time.

Life Is Not About Chance – It’s About Choice.  What are You Choosing Today?

.

Question:  What are two questions you can ask someone that you’ve never met before?

The 3 “C”s of Life

3-cs

 

So what do you REALLY want?  More money, more happiness, more peace, more fun?  

.

What I’m seeing a lot lately is that many people want MORE but they either don’t know how to move toward it or they don’t want to change. This doesn’t have to be some big ah-ha, it can be something small, some small change you can make today that will start the ball rolling in the other direction.  You know that downward spiral that just seems to keep going down and down.  You can stop it and begin the move upward to new things in your life.  

.

Take a look at what you want, what will it take to get there or achieve it?  Make a plan, and then take ONE step toward.  You may need to find a mentor, a coach, or someone who can give you a little guidance, a little push to take the next step.

.

Here’s the thing – YOU have to believe that you have a choice.  It starts with choosing something different.  Take a chance.  Yes, it may be a risk, it may be scary, (actually it probably will be), but you can choose to step out anyway! Very seldom is it as bad or hard as you think it will be.

.

I love change.  I know that sounds crazy, but I look at change as a way of keeping fresh, being on top of things, learning, and growing. Change can be fun, maybe not in the beginning, but as you walk through it, you may begin to feel a change in you and that starts the movement. Think of the pivotal times in your life.  Chances are it started with a change you really didn’t want, or were scared of, or what you feel was ‘put upon’ you.  Did the experience help you grow?  Did it lead you to new ideas, new thoughts, and new season of your life?

.

It depends on how you will look at it.  If you choose the poor me syndrome, then that is what you will have in your life.  If you choose the I’m not gonna let this get me down, I can get through this, I’m going to be open… points of view then you will have more success, more ways to grow and truthfully… more success.  You will grow in confidence and that will lead to some of the MORE that you want in your life.

.

  • Make a Choice for something different

  • Be willing to take a risk

  • Change will happen in your life 

.

And that can be really really good!
