Quit Making New Year’s Resolutions and Design a Sexy Context

Context is the freedom to be.  Context is space.  It has no form, no place in time; it allows form and time…Once you create a context, that context then generates a process in which the content – the forces and circumstances – reorder and align themselves with the context. ~ Werner Erhard I love this time of year, not just because of the holidays, but because it’s a wonderful time to pause and reflect about how the past year has gone – what worked, what didn’t work, and what you would like to do differently. No, you don’t need to wait

Jump Start Your Goals – Step 5 – Let the Wind Take You!

The jump is so frightening between where I am and where I want to be…because of all I may become I will close my eyes and leap!    ~Mary Anne Radmacher The best part about going after a big juicy goal lies in what you learn about who you are and how capable you are beyond what you think. My friend Karen reminded me of this during a conversation we had about my achieving my Big Juicy Goal. She has known me since the days when I was still afraid to be me and she was there to support me the

Jump Start Your Goals – Step 4 – Be Committed

If you want to take your mission in life to the Next Level, look inside. Abolish your fears and raise your commitment level to the point of no return, and I guarantee you that the champion within will propel you toward victory. — Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist       ~Bruce Jenner Jump starting my own big, juicy goal this year and completing it taught me something about commitment that shifted my relationship to it from being conceptual to having an amazing experience of it at a WAY higher level.  The Bruce Jenner quote included here captures my experience perfectly. When committing to

Jump Start Your Goals – Step 3 – Let Friends Help!

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun. – Charles R. Swindoll Do you have close-to-your-heart dreams that you’ve been afraid to share because they seem impossible to achieve? Dreams that make life the most exciting are the ones that are too big to accomplish on your own. I believe that’s why most of our most treasured dreams stay locked up in the closets of our hearts. Taking them out and confronting their size is scary. There is

Jump Start Your Goals – Step 2 – Take Action!

The future depends on what you do today. ― Mahatma Gandhi It’s interesting to notice what happens naturally once you set an Inspired Intention, whether it’s to create a career you are passionate about, a loving relationship, a prosperous lifestyle or anything else that you really want. Pictures start to form in your mind about what that would look like – you start to experience in your body what it would FEEL like to actualize your Inspired Intention. Allowing yourself to FEEL your Inspired Intention becoming actualized and seeing the pictures causes your brain to go to work on creating possible actions

Jump Start Your Goals – Step 1 – Set Inspired Intentions

Although actions may speak louder than words, it is our intentions that reveal our soul. ~ Hal Elrod How often do you create a goal by “should-ing” all over yourself? I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that goals crafted from “shoulds” don’t feel very inspiring. I invite you to think back over the goals you’ve created for your business or your life this year. How have you done so far in accomplishing them? You might find yourself in one of these places: Your goal is complete Your goal is in progress You’ve given up on your goal or

Open the Door to a New Future!

Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives. ~ Viktor Frankl In my coaching practice, one of the most challenging questions my clients face is coming up with answers to these questions: “What are your biggest goals?” “What do you want?” “What matters most to you?” Such questions are often followed by blank stares or long silences or a very sheepish “I don’t know”. Like some of my clients, you may be challenged by answering these questions too. Most of us are used to being driven by what’s urgent rather than “pulled” by what

Ask Power Questions to Jump Start Your Year!

To be on a quest is nothing more or less than to become an asker of questions ~Sam Keen I’ve developed a habit you might think is weird. Thanks to my coach, I started collecting power questions. I save them into a folder and as I’m creating my vision for the year, I pull them out and use them to reflect on the past year, where I am in my life right now, and how to get a jump start on what I want to create for the future.  It’s making a HUGE difference in how I approach my life

How to Make Your New Year “Trippy”

Just when Christmas is over and all you want to do is kick back and relax, how many of you are experiencing pressure to create New Year’s Resolutions?  How many of you are resisting the idea altogether? Either way, the process (as we usually go through it) doesn’t seem very appealing or creative, does it? At best, it seems like work and at worst, it seems like a sure path to failure. I don’t know about you, but I’m not interested in deliberately setting myself up to fail. According to Wikipedia, a New Year’s Resolution is “a commitment that an
