Today I'd like to introduce you to someone.
She is a knowledgeable fitness coach with 9 years of experience. She placed in the top 1% nationally in Crossfit during her 7 years of competition. She has trained with the best Olympic-level weightlifting coaches and world-class Powerlifting coaches in her quest to perfect her benchpress, back squat, and deadlift. She is CrossFit Level 2 certified and has achieved Red III in the Level Method system. (She used to be a part-owner in a...
Maybe even now...you want to take a leap of faith toward your dream but...you don't feel worthy of it just yet?
Perhaps you've even thought - it's okay to want it and okay to go after it, but getting it? That's for other people right now. Me get that? Do that? Be that? One day.
I have good new and bad news - which is really just more good news.
The good news is: you don't really need the credentials...
Those afflicted with this special calamity often see giving up on their goals (or not actively pursuing them) as an act of kindness or graciousness. Although they may not label it as giving up or pushing them aside.
To this person, it sounds more like putting off or delaying a specific task or tasks to help someone else out. Or a relaxing of standards to make someone else happy in the moment (so they think).
Did you ever ask your mother for something over and over even though she kept saying no? And finally you asked "But why?" just to hear her reply "Because I said so?" [with THAT look that dared you to go any further.]
Just me? Riiiiight, okay. Sure. [winkie winkie]
I must have done that a thousand times. So annoying! (Her, not me, of course. Soooo not the answer I was looking for) I was smart enough to know that was the end of it - at least for a few minutes.
Luckily, I still have a little bit...
Should you set truly big, scary goals? Or be more reasonable?
What if you want the big scary goals, but hate the overwhelm that comes with it? And the guilt about what you're NOT doing no matter what you ARE doing?
Great Q's. Enlightening A's in this video.
At the end of the video I mention an intensive 5-week program. If you want the details, email me ([email protected]) for a short...
Journaling is an authentication process. It's taking your dreams and aspirations out of your head and putting them on paper, therefore taking a step toward making them real. It makes them more concrete and gives you clarity.
And here is where many people totally miss the boat on this sweet deal.
Journaling isn’t a record of yesterday or today unless pulling on past resources and using them for your benefit today. Example: Remembering how you pushed through something difficult to get...
The three words that ruffle my feathers as a coach?
I. Don't. Know. *Especially when on repeat.
Actually - I smile because I know exactly what to do when I hear them.
Just saying those words or thinking those words cuts you off from possibilities. It perpetuates a helpless, confused, foggy-headed feeling. Or brings about the same.
NO! [insert hand up motion here]
Just stop. You do NOT have time for that energy. It does not and will not help you move forward. And YOU? You definitely want to...
So annoying, right?
It doesn't even make sense at first glance.
But don't worry - I have no intentions of asking you to sit around a camp fire holding hands to discuss it I will, however, explain it.
If you're goal-oriented, if you like to win...reading this is worth your time.
And if you're of the analytical nature...reading this is REALLY worth YOUR time.
So often, we set out to handle something, to achieve something. We set a goal. Or we desire something in our lives, about our...
It's as certain as a math theorem.
Conversely, when you set a goal to reach an outcome or result and your mind has some math (i.e. beliefs) that doesn't add up, you'll never hit that goal. Not when you're pushing to grow and be the next level you.
And if you know me - you know I'm a total math geek. It was my favorite subject in school. Why? Because it was...
It's BS to look at someone who has/does/is what you want to have/do/be and think "Oh it's easy for her; it comes easy to her."
Can I just be straight? (You know I will anyway.)
No, it doesn't. She has fears and doubts, too. She just takes action anyway. Consistently.
No matter how experienced one is regarding success, mindset, goals, and what have you, fear and doubt still creep up. It's just that the more successful and experienced a person is, the faster they deal with the fear and doubt so...
