Overcome the Fear of Making Mistakes

Posted on November 10th, 2014 by


Have you ever been afraid of making mistake?

Have you ever been worried that you will do or say the wrong thing?

Let’s tackle that fear right now.

You will make mistakes.  It is 100% guaranteed that you will mess up, so there is no need to be afraid of it.

I make mistakes all the time.  I disappoint myself, others and make the wrong choices.

Sometimes I make big mistakes, like spending a ton of money on a marketing idea that tanks.

Sometimes I make small mistakes, like forgetting to put my son’s clothes in the dryer and making him go to school with wet underwear.  (To him, this is a big mistake :)

We are imperfectly perfect, so we are going to fall down.… Read the rest

Take a Chance

Posted on September 19th, 2014 by

girl-jumping-off-cliff-with-umbrellaYou know that thing deep inside that you really want to do?  Yes, that one.  What is stopping you from doing it?

Are you worried that it may not work out?  That the risk is too high? Or that you just aren’t ready?

We don’t take enough chances in life.   We have dreams, desires and wishes that die inside us.   The truth is that we have everything we need right now to achieve our wildest dreams.  All we need to do is make a plan and take action.  But we don’t do it.  We don’t cross that line between where we are now and where we want to be.

What stops us from taking that chance?  In order to get what we’ve never gotten we must do what we’ve never done.  That means venturing outside of our comfy zone and doing things that make us feel uneasy. 

We want security.  We like knowing what’s going to happen, even if it’s not our ideal situation.  A regular paycheck feels good.  A relationship that isn’t working is better than no relationship at all.  Our desire for certainty makes us feel safe, but it also kills our dreams.… Read the rest

How to Push Through Obstacles

Posted on September 7th, 2014 by

push through obstaclesYou start something new.  You’re excited and the ideas are flowing.  You get right to work and doors begin to open.  Great things start to happen.  You wake up in the middle of the night with ideas.   You can’t wait to get out of bed in the morning to put them into action.

Then BAM!  You hit a wall.   Everything stops flowing.  Things become harder and more complicated.  There are obstacles.  The learning curve is bigger than you thought.   You see other people further ahead of you.   You get tired.  You have flashing thoughts of doing something different.  Then you lose momentum and motivation.

Is this a sign to stop and go in a different direction?  Is it time to reconsider your passion? 

No, it is simply the natural cycle of success.… Read the rest

Upgrade Your Thinking

Posted on July 21st, 2014 by

Upgrade your thinking I got a call from a client today who was worrying and obsessing over a problem.  Her mind was racing with the worst possible scenarios.   She called me so I could replace the bad thoughts with good ones and she would feel better.  I typed her name into my computer, found her file and hit enter.  Instantly her thoughts changed from bad to good.

Seriously, I wish it were that simple!!  We all have thoughts that we wish would vanish forever.  But the truth is that negative thoughts have an important job.   Sometimes they do positive things for us.

If we thought positive all the time, we would be absent from reality.  While it’s nice to look at the bright side, it is crucial to recognize and prepare for the obstacles too.… Read the rest
