57: Go Ahead…Judge Your Neighbor

57: Go Ahead…Judge Your Neighbor

You have stories that are holding you back. 

You may even be drowning in these stories.

I know, because I have Stories, too.

We all do.

But wouldn’t it be great to be FREE of the bullshit stories you’ve been telling yourself for years?

Listen to the latest episode of Women Wanting More on iTunes here. 

In this Episode 57: Go Ahead..Judge Your Neighbor, I discuss:

*the epiphany I had today doing The Work of Byron Katie on my 5 year old son, Tyson

*the power of this Work (aka Inquiry) and the simplicity of asking yourself the 4 Questions

*how easy it is to do the Judge Your Neighbor Worksheet, and learn how to do the Work yourself

*why I believe everyone on the planet needs to read Loving What Is

MORE TIP:  

  1. Read or listen to the book Loving What is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life by Byron Katie
  2. Print up the Judge Your Neighbor Worksheets, and start doing The Work.

56: Lower Your Expectations

56: Lower Your Expectations

Maybe it’s time to lower the bar.

To stop expecting experiences, relationships, and events in your life to be a certain way.

Maybe you need to give up the fantasy of how you ‘think’ it’s supposed to feel.

And just lower those expectations

Listen to the latest episode of Women Wanting More on iTunes here. 

In this Episode 56: Lower Your Expectations, I discuss:
*my shit storm of the holiday season with sick kids, sick me, and the insanity of it all with 2 little boys and no family around
*why comparison to others’ images on Facebook is one of the worst things you can do in determining if your expectation of an experience or relationship is being met
*why lowering your expectation may be the best option, particularly when going into situations that you know are going to be stressful

MORE TIP:  

Choose ONE DAY (maybe even TODAY) that you have ZERO expectations of EVERYTHING about your day.

Instead, choose to BE PRESENT, and experience Life as it unfolds.

The next day, go back to holding those expectations high, and your blaming, shaming, and guilt-ridden experience.

Then FB me, post on my wall, or email you experience of how these 2 days are different.

55: Put the Hammer Down

55: Put the Hammer Down

Holy shit, am I ever hard on myself.

I think that if I stop pushing at this insane pace, that I will never get things done.

Are you this way, too?

Listen to the latest episode of Women Wanting More on iTunes here. 

In this Episode 55: Put the Hammer Down,  I discuss:
*the realization I had in my group coaching program today, ShieldMaiden, that I am way to hard on myself
*that the frustration, anger, and exhaustion I’m experiencing is a result of it
*and that really, this is all just because of the STORY that I tell myself (that if I slow down, I won’t get shit down)
*and that really, the opposite is true
*the solution I’m taking to create a scheduled PAUSE in each and every one of my days

MORE TIP:  

Are you pushing too hard in your life, too? 
WHERE is it?
And what can YOU do to create a pause and a time to slow down to avoid creating burnout in your Life?

Then email, FB message me, or post on my personal or Women Wanting More FB page of WHERE it is you need to slow down and HOW you plan on doing it.

54: Take F*ckin Action!

54: Take F*ckin Action!

Someday, I’ll do it. 

When I have the time. 

When I have the money. 

When I have the resources. 

I call Bullshit on all this, and here’s why….

Listen to the latest episode of Women Wanting More on iTunes here. 

In this Episode 54: Take F*ckin’ Action,  I discuss:
*that the world is full of people who talk a good game, but never actually pull the trigger and DO something
*the myth that you have to ‘know’ everything before you actually do it (and this is just a bullshit excuse for not doing the work)
*the best way to learn something new or take on a new challenge is by TAKING ACTION vs. waiting until you have the time, money or resources before you make a move (which are all just the lies you tell yourself that allows you to not take action)

MORE TIP:  
WHAT goal, special project, or task do you have that you want to get done in your life?
Take ONE step TODAY to start moving towards this goal.
No, not tomorrow.
TODAY.
ONE action step.

Then email, FB message me, or post on my personal or Women Wanting More FB page and make yourself accountable by telling me the action you are taking.

53: The Power of the Positive Focus

53: The Power of the Positive Focus

Well ain’t life just a big shit sandwich some days?

So what?

Are you going to continue to live the story and drama of what happened?

Or would you like a tool to move through it, and learn from your experience?

Listen to the latest episode of Women Wanting More on iTunes here. 

In this Episode 53: The Power of the Positive Focus,  I discuss:
*the ‘fun’ evening my husband and I had putting our boys to bed tonight
*how you can take any shitty situation, and apply the Positive Focus to it
*me in real time, taking the ‘fun’ experience tonight with my 2 year old (yes, you have to listen to the episode to find out what it was!), and turning it all around

MORE TIP:  
Think of a tough situation you have had in your Life today, this week, or this month.

Ask yourself the following questions about it:
WHAT was it?
Just the facts of what happened, not your story of the facts.
WHY did it happen? 
Positively reframe the situation
WHAT is the LESSON learned from it?
How can you APPLY this lesson to the areas of Body, Being, Balance, and Business?

What-Why-Lesson-Apply

Then email, FB message me, or post on my personal or Women Wanting More FB page about your experience going through the positive focus.
