Are you going to be on the edge of your life (quietly reassuring yourself that it's ok here and that those jumpers are crazy anyway) or are you going to be the one that jumps straight into life, in spite of its uncertainty?
What advice does a mother have for her son when the conversation turns to owning a business and protecting your digital tattoo? Ben Gallaher, a Son...
Feeling afraid from time to time is entirely human. We are prewired to experience the rush of adrenaline and cortisol that prepares us to defend ourselves or run when we are threatened. It's a survival mechanism that tells your brain to pay attention and your muscles to prepare for danger, and it has been critical to the survival of the human species.
The first week that I went full time with my business was a scary week. Actually, it was a terrifying week. My expectation was that as soon as the we...
What gives you confidence? What makes you feel fantastic, like you could take on the world with your head held high? For some, it's all about the ma...
I speak to countless people who complain about their lives and say they want to quit their jobs, but who stay put year after year. I get it, I was there myself once. Understanding what is preventing you from taking action is one of the most important ways to move forward.
Fear. A four letter word that packs a lot of punch. This little sucker keeps us trapped, playing small and giving up on our dreams. It convinces us of a distorted reality in which we are the victim and only 'bad' things can happen to us. The continual monologue of all things that could, would and will go wrong.
These things do not happen to people like us. You see it on television and movies. It happens to friends of friends and every so often to close friends, but it does not happen to us.
I now know that being vulnerable is a good thing; I know that I am loved and that I am strong. I appreciate every day, the rainy storms, the sunshine, the good coffee in the morning, everything. I can't get enough of it. I am more fearless then ever and have never been more calm and relaxed.
Fear has shown up in my life as depression, low self esteem, lack of self worth, sadness, shame, lack of confidence, comparison, resentment, illness, regret. Fear keeps us living small lives. We were not meant to live small lives.
Trust yourself enough to keep going and to be excited about the direction you are headed. And please take a moment to make someone else feel recognized and better also. This, more than anything else, will begin to bring greater love into your life.
Something interesting has been happening over the past few weeks - so many of the women I work with have all been running up the same thing...FEAR. It's something that comes up again and again - for me and for the women I work with.
Most of us have severe feelings of fear wash over us at the most in opportune times in our life and business. I think the human spirit includes feel...
We as a society have been normalized to egregious corporate behavior and accept massive layoffs and burnout, but those are precisely the bad habits that we must try, with our personal greatest might and bold voice, to break if we want to ensure a sustainable and healthy world for generations to come.
Imagine if you were to see that, see how the blessings of your own effort have allowed you to come alive in unimaginable ways -- and, not because anyone other than you made it happen. Imagine how surprised you might be. Imagine how we would celebrate.
As she approached her 40s, Kayt Sukel suffered a midlife crisis... in reverse. Instead of binging on wild adventures--bungee jumping, big-game hunting, flings with Bieber-aged men-- Kayt became a play-it-safe suburbanite, which is not how she sees herself.
Have you ever felt like you were sliding down a silo, desperately trying to brace against the sides so you wouldn't keep falling? For the past four years, I've been slowly sinking to the bottom -- spread eagle and grasping for a handhold to stop the downward slide.
Money is freedom or at least it should be. It enables you to live abundantly and affords you a lifestyle that is much higher than ¾'s of the world'...
I would first like to thank Mayor Martin, Sandy Goldstein, Monsignor Digiovanni and my fellow clergy for your leadership in organizing this historic and important event in our city. We are truly grateful for this gathering of Many Faiths, One Community and Stamford Proud.
"A Story Worth Living" is a film that anyone can identify with. I found comfort in knowing that the story I have has meaning, we're never truly alone in our life's course, and that there is always redemption if we are willing to find it.
