Highs and Lows…Where Do You Go?

So I have a confession to make…I haven’t been feeling myself lately. I’ve been overwhelmed, feeling overrun, and not like myself. And it’s crazy, because I have had so many fantastic things going on in my life! So that made me feel so guilty…why was I feeling this funk..I should be on a total high!!!

Today’s video is all about the highs and lows in our life. It is common to experience both, it is just a part of life. And you shouldn’t feel bad if you don’t feel on top of the world right now…it’s ok! What is important is not to stay in a funky place too long and realize that YOU have the power to change it, that you can create the reality that you want all by shifting your mindset. Believe me, I had to give myself a check and I am back on track to living a vibrant life and leaving the funk behind!

Watch today’s video as I talk about the highs and the lows. of our lives.

How do you experience your highs and lows and what will you do to shake things up to a more positive state? Tell your story in the comments below!

Obsess Your Way to Success

What an amazing weekend I had! It has been really busy in my world, with coaching and massage clients, working on my book, writing articles and blogs, and all the work I am putting into creating new, exciting programs for you guys! I haven’t had much time in between, but was fortunate to have scheduled a long weekend to hang out with some good friends in the windy city. We had a blast catching up, ate a lot of great food (including Chi town pizza!), took an adventure down Rt. 66, and even had some down time too! A very much needed long weekend!

One of the conversations that we had at dinner was all about success and what makes an individual have that “IT” factor. A common theme that we all agreed on was that most successful people are totally involved in their industries. They immerse themselves and maybe even obsess their way to success. I can totally relate…I know I have had many a night staying up til 2 am working on creative material or mastering some tech on my website! Sometimes I feel a little nutty staying up so late, but it is something that has to get done in my world to grow to the next level!

I find this topic fascinating. Watch today’s video to dive a little deeper in this area!

What areas of your life do you want to be successful in and how will you “obsess” about it? Please share in the comments below!

How to Handle Rejection Gracefully

It has been a whirlwind week! I am still on a high from my Huffington Post article being published! Whoo Hoo!

But, not everything always goes as planned and today’s post is all about being rejected. UGGGH!

I remember one of the first times I was rejected. It was in 3rd grade and I really liked this boy named Brett. In my mind, he was my one and only!

But Brett didn’t see me like that…in fact Brett didn’t see me at all. (How dare he!!) I felt completely rejected and totally heart broken.

Ah, young love! But even though this moment stung, I learned from it. I learned how to heal a broken heart and gained a better sense of who I was. I learned that I didn’t need a boy to make me happy and that all the happiness I needed all came from within. I got over him, and I survived!

Rejection is not fun…but it is a part of life and a part of our journey. Watch today’s video to learn how to handle rejection gracefully! (Bonus-You will learn a little about my pageant days too!)

How will you handle the challenges of rejection? Will you choose to internalize it or will you handle it gracefully? Share your story in the comments below!
