Do you want to get clear about what you want?
If so, read on.
I have a hard time believing you were put on this Earth solely to be a workaholic. Yet, most people spend their life focused on work and career, spending very little time really living life and being happy. There has got to be more to life than that!
For the longest time I struggled with the idea of making up my mind for what I truly wanted in life. What held me back was the thought that my decision was permanent. I don’t know where that idea came from, but it colored my every thought.
“What if I make the wrong decision?”
“What if I fail?”
“What if I make a fool of myself?”
All those “What If’s” kept me paralyzed from taking a leap of faith. As a result I stayed stuck in my comfort zone for years never deciding what I wanted. This indecision not only kept me stuck, it caused me to not live true to my values. It caused me to give up my boundaries and most importantly, I lost who I was in the process.
I didn’t realize it at the time, but the moment I lost who I was at my core was the moment I started losing my “Happy.” Continue reading...
You see, years ago my life was turbulent and most of the time I was depressed, angry and frustrated. It was all because I lost who I was and had over-compromised ME -- without even knowing it.
Then one day I said “Enough is enough!” and I made a commitment to do whatever it took to change myself and to live the rest of my life being happy, authentic and more true to my values. That meant I needed to change me and my life 180 degrees. What a scary, yet hopeful, goal. I had no idea how to start or where to go for help.
It took a few years -- and lots of dedication -- but I achieved the life I so desperately wanted. The life I have now is so much more than I ever could have imagined. Continue reading...
The first step towards living the life you love is Awareness. It will be hard for you to achieve Awareness unless you have the intention and focus. This takes slowing down and making time for you. Make sure you take a short…
Ever since I was a kid I wanted things to be different in my life. I also wanted to be different. I wanted to be smarter, better looking, taller, thinner and a million other things. I wanted to be liked and I always wanted more true friends.
It seemed like no matter how much I wanted things to change, they rarely did.
I used to think I was alone in this area, but as time went on I realized very few people are content with who they are and what they have. Most people want what they don’t have. Even those who we are envious of are generally not satisfied.
It wasn’t bad enough that I wanted to change and couldn’t, I also wanted to change a lot of people who were in my life.
Does that sound crazy? Continue reading...

How I Became The Life Choice Strategist
In 1999 I was at my lowest point. I was angry because of who I had become. I realized it was my fault, yet I felt powerless to fix it. I had over-compromised myself for years. I’d become very adept at just sweeping problems out of view instead of dealing with them, just like the proverbial elephant in the room.
I was living a lie. Continue reading...
This is your lucky day! Your alarm clock goes off and it’s time to start your new day. Then suddenly out of the blue you hear a small voice whispering in your ear, “I will grant you one wish and one wish only. Anything you wish for WILL COME TRUE! But there is one condition. You must make your wish by the stroke of midnight tomorrow!”
You are so excited. You can’t believe your ears. You are so wound-up to share your great news with all your family and friends. You are ready to shout out to the world how lucky you are and how you were chosen to have a wish come true. You are determined that all your friends and family will know that you have this one wish and that no matter what, like it or lump it, you need to make your wish by the end of the day tomorrow.
