We all crave happiness, that's a given. We chase it through countless efforts, yet some of us reach that blissful state seemingly easier than others. Why the disparity? A few weeks ago, we discussed the importance of taking action, but today, I want to highlight the crucial role of support in your journey, especially at the beginning.
If you'd rather watch, here is an 11-min video I recorded a while ago.
Studies show that our success rate doubles when we have others cheering us on. So, let's see if any of this resonates with you (remember, no judgment, just curiosity).
Scenario 1: You dream of starting your wellness journey, but before you even begin, your spouse throws cold water on it. Sarcastic comments, doubts about your past "failures" – all drain your motivation before you even take the first step. Sound...
In the light of recent teachings on vision, values, goals, and action, I can't help but reflect.
Why do some people succeed with purposeful action, while others remain stuck in wishful thinking? Why do some achieve faster than others? Often, we dream, want, and wish, but stay glued to talk instead of taking that crucial step. We get stuck in the "I need to do this" loop, never actually doing it.
Procrastination? Lack of discipline? Fear? Feeling unsupported? Probably a combination.
But I believe the real answer lies in the absence of needle-mover action. The most critical thing for achieving your desired results is simply acting. Acting despite fear, despite not feeling like it, despite the daily hustle. Acting on that one thing like your life depends on it, because in a way, it does. And guess what? Your happiness depends on it too. After all, isn't happiness the ultimate outcome we all crave?
But what does inaction truly cost us?
Daily frustration, a vicious cycle of failure,...
In a distant memory,
I see a five-year-old little girl sitting in a dark corner. She has her arms wrapped around her legs and her head is hiding between the circle of her arms and knees. She feels scared. She does not even know for sure why. But what she does know for sure, is if she keeps sitting like this—quiet, silent—no one will either hear her or see her. And that means she is safe.
Twenty-five years later, she finds herself in a different country. She is a young mom with two beautiful daughters. She is married and living in a beautiful house. Everything looks perfect on the outside. But on the inside, she feels sick and tired and worn, and sitting in the same position hugging her knees. Except now she is at her favorite spot, looking straight across a peaceful lake and questioning her ‘silent’ life, questioning her worth.
“Why is my business not breaking through, why am I feeling drained in my marriage, why...
Hey there, dreamers and visionaries! Tired of setting goals that feel more like bandaids than blueprints for your best life? You're not alone. I've been there too, chasing shiny things to fill some inner void. But guess what? True happiness and purpose come from aligning your goals with your vision and values. Think of it like building a house: a sturdy foundation of self-discovery leads to a vibrant, fulfilling life you actually love living.
So, let's ditch the "gotta fix it" mentality and get inspired!
It all starts with clarity. Who are you? What lights you up? What legacy do you want to leave behind? This isn't just woo-woo stuff, it's powerful introspection. Imagine your ideal life in vivid detail. What skills shine through? What relationships nourish you? This becomes your North Star, guiding every decision and goal.
Values are your roadmap. They're the principles that guide your actions and choices. Are...
The champagne cork has popped, the glitter settled, and the blank slate of a new year beckons. But with it comes the inevitable flood of resolutions, often destined to fade with the January frost.
This year, break the cycle! Ditch the "all or nothing" approach and embrace a sustainable strategy for lasting change. Here are 3 crucial things you can do right now to avoid resolution failure and set yourself up for success:
Start by anchoring your goals in your deepest "why." What do you truly want your life to look like, not just in a year, but at the end of a decade? What values do you want to guide your journey?
Now, break down that ambitious vision into achievable milestones. Think stepping stones: goals for 3 months, 2 months, 1 month, even weekly and daily. Each small action propels you forward, making the long-term vision feel less daunting.
Going solo? You're stacking...
The holidays are a time for joy, family, and togetherness. But amidst the hustle and bustle, it's easy to neglect self-care. This year, let's change that. Instead of waiting until New Year's resolutions kick in, let's embrace self-compassion right now, during this hectic time.

Think about it: when life gets busy, wouldn't you treat your child or loved one with extra care and understanding? Why not extend the same kindness to yourself?

As the holiday season approaches, we often find ourselves preoccupied with thoughts of overindulgence and weight gain. It's a time when many resign themselves to the idea of gaining weight and plan to lose it afterward.
What if we could shift our perspective and view 'weight' as a lifelong journey rather than a temporary fix?
