Fear will always show up when we step out of our comfort zone to enter a new space or a bigger space. We feel fear when we are in the unknown. We lack confidence and feel vulnerable when we are on the edge of growth. Yet something is drawing us to make a bigger impact or to be the pebble that is making the ripples in the pond.
So if you are a success driven person who wants to make a bigger impact or someone who wants to live life more fully and expansively, you will feel the block of fear. Wanting to create change, yet not knowing how to get past your fear is very stressful. Sometimes it creates a push-pull dynamic that makes you feel stuck. You see your potential and can’t manifest this part of your heart’s desire.Read More

You have goals for 2017 and now you find that your motivation to change is waxing and waning. Life is busy and you are distracted from your goals for this year.
Here is the good news, the most successful change happens when you take small, incremental steps and get those locked in before you add to your plan.
The reason that you have failed to sustain your goals for 2017 is not a reflection that you failed but more that your plan has not been “sticky” enough to stack your deck for success.

Create Resiliency to Reduce Stress
We are all so busy. Our to-do list keeps us spread thin. If this is your reality what would motivate you to prioritize your Self higher on your list to prevent burnout and stress related health problems? If you think of your energy resources as your checking account, every time you give your energy to others you are spending from your checking account. If you keep spending without refueling your energy, then you will deplete your checking account and draw from your savings account. Over time you will bankrupt your internal energy resources and wipe yourself out. Every time you engage in activities that bring pleasure, fun and relaxation you are refueling your bank account. You are taking in fuel to restore your energy bank. Prioritizing what really fuels your tank is key to creating resiliency in a busy life. If you explore the values of what really matters to you, you will tap into what can motivate you to shift your priorities to refuel your Self. This is one of the strategies that I can support you with in my stress reduction program to: Reduce your Stress. Create more Success.

Mind full or mindful?
Mindfulness: Paying attention to the present moment with intention,
while letting go of judgment as if your life depends on it.
– Dr. Jon Kabat-Zin
Mindfulness is paying attention to what really matters. Click To Tweet
When you are single focused and not multi-tasking you can be present in that moment with that single focus. It doesn’t matter if you are talking with someone or folding laundry. In the moment you are mindful when you pay attention to and connect with what you are experiencing in that moment. You can be mindful when you exercise as you focus on that exact movement of activity. You are mindful when you eat if you really taste your food with pallet gratification, smelling your food, taking in the beauty of your food and really feeling the gratitude for all the hands that touched that food to make it possible for it to be on your plate; down to the giveaway of the plant or animal that is feeding you.
When we multitask, we are distracting ourselves. When we are on our cell phone or watching TV while eating we are not connecting to our food or appreciating how our food is nourishing us with savory pleasure. If we are not single focused while we eat, we will gobble up our food without fully tasting it and experiencing it. So are you mindful or mind full??
