3 Ways to Recharge This Summer

I’ve been spending too much time on Facebook lately, peering at the curated versions of peoples’ lives. I find myself feeling a bit less than whenever I do it, but I find it hard to look away from the shiny versions of other peoples’ lives. It is so easy to view other’s worlds and think that their grass is greener. If you could just be like them, have their life, their friends, their children, their home, all would be well. It would not be. Perhaps because of the line of work I’m in, I gain access to…

A Wish For The New Year: Honoring Myself

I am going to get a bit personal today, to take a chance to express my internal longings for the double-purpose of saying out loud what I long for and also helping you connect with what you personally crave for your life, too. Here goes. I feel like a brilliant diamond that is covered up, not quite visible or glowing the way it has the potential to be. Mired down in the muck of feeling scared and limited in my skin, I find I’m not sure how to be who I really am. How to be myself…

What You Are Meant For

You are meant to live a life that is meaningful. You are meant for a life that allows you to make a living using your true gifts and talents, a life that shines your light in the world. In fact, it is not only an opportunity, it’s your duty. Because we need your best work to make the impact you were born to make. No one can make the same contribution that you can, just as no one has your unique perspective or combination of talents, skills, interests, and passions. You are meant to quench the craving…

Practicing Gratitude

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. I love that it’s about slowing down, taking notice of the abundance around us, and appreciating those we love and who have supported us in our lives. But I have to be honest: when I first sat down to write this post, I wasn’t feeling very grateful. It is so easy to become focused on what we don’t have, haven’t yet achieved, or still want for our lives.  It can be difficult to pause and appreciate our accomplishments. While it’s good to be motivated and have goals, sometimes we are too hard…

Let’s Play!

Play is as important to adults as it is to children.  If you hang around my blog much, you’ll soon start to notice how important the idea of play is—whether child or corporate executive, we all must play to tap into our deepest creative well.  As adults, when we have a project or business that we are passionate about, it’s easy to become totally engrossed in our work. Then, before you know it, hours have passed in a flash. Even days. Being productive is a great feeling. But it is important to make sure that your life…

The Ebb and Flow of Strong Emotion

There is an image that helps me weather times of intense emotion, such as fear or sadness, and I’d like to share it with you. Perhaps it will resonate and help you in times of stress, too. My favorite beach in Maui is Napili Bay, a beautiful small crescent of sand and surf with a view of neighboring island Molokai. When I’m there, I wade in past the breaking waves to a spot where I am up just up to my neck in the water but I can still touch. The sandy bottom has no rocks, so…

I Don’t Want to be That Guy

I have a weird story to tell you. Last weekend we took a road trip and stopped at a gas station for some fuel. I went into the little gas station store to buy some drinks for my family. As I approached the cash register, I noticed a guy in front of me. Normal stuff, right? What was interesting was what he was doing….

I Just Did Something Really Scary…

I just finished doing something really scary… …and I have never felt so alive! For the past year, I have been in the process of upgrading my coaching credential from Associate to Professional level. It has involved logging hundreds of hours of coaching experience, submitting a detailed application including client and mentor coaching references and completing a three-part exam. The written and recorded coaching exams I completed about nine months ago; they were both doozies. And this past Friday…
