Create a Life You Love

Create a Life You Love

Does having a life you love mean you're happy every minute of every day? Of course not. If anyone tells you they are - run! Those Internet ads with a guy grinning from ear to ear next to an exotic car with a mansion in the background make me laugh - then they make...

I Have ADHD

I Have ADHD

Most of the time, I like my ADHD. I received the formal diagnosis in my forties but I always suspected that my brain isn't wired like everyone else's. By the time I was in 4th grade, I'd developed a fascination with how our brains work. I chose  "Left Brain Right...

Fear
Fear Will Crush Your Soul

Fear Will Crush Your Soul

You hate your job but you you can't bring yourself to leave. You tell yourself you have to think about your family. Your kids will be in college soon. You need the stability of a paycheck. You drag yourself to work, put your time in and try to decompress on the...

Kiss Resolutions Goodbye

Kiss Resolutions Goodbye

Somewhere deep in your subconscious is the belief that resolutions are meant to be broken.   Try something different this year. Reflect on what worked well for you and what you'd like to improve. Once you've identified that - create a plan with measurable...

Every Mindset Has a Story

Every Mindset Has a Story

The story we tell ourselves about who we are and what we can do starts before we ever set foot in school.   Fascination with people and success came early in my life. It started with my family—wondering what made my dad want to work for someone else when three...

Mindset and Body

Mindset and Body

So, yesterday I went to my first Bikram yoga class, a.k.a. “hot yoga”. I have friends that take or have taken Bikram classes and I’ve heard stories about passing out, having to leave, and my personal nightmare - throwing up in class. Trying something new can feel...

Procrastination Sucks

Procrastination Sucks

2011 - New Year, New goals, same challenge with procrastination. When I say procrastination sucks, I mean it will literally suck the energy, momentum and life right out of you. It's been my Achilles heel for as long as I can remember. Most of the time it's just a...

Perserverence Mindset

Perserverence Mindset

A few days ago I talked about the fear mindset and how it can really hold you back. The antidote to that of course is action. But once you get into action mode, the next step is perseverance. I’d like to introduce you to Naomi Dunford, someone I absolutely love....

Overcome Fear

Overcome Fear

Sometimes you just have to tell yourself to shut the FUD up – FUD,  meaning Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt… Fear can paralyze the most ambitious people and plans. In and of itself, fear isn’t a bad thing, it keeps us safe by alerting our senses to real danger – a bad...

Taking Action

Taking Action

Yes, my age old theme – taking action. Doing the same old things will only get you the same old results. A couple of days ago I found out that Greg Reid, one of my favorite authors was going to have a book signing today at a nearby bookstore. The timing was perfect...

Mindset for Success

Mindset for Success

I know, I’m still lagging in posting but working my way back. It’s been quite a year so far, with tears of loss and pain mixed in with those of joy and success. It’s been that kind of year for almost everyone I know. When you’re filled with self-doubt or a feeling...

Focus, Balance and Death

Focus, Balance and Death

It's time to come back to my poor neglected blog. I've written a million posts in my head between the last one and now. One of the posts was about staying focused which related to my training for the marathon in memory of my mom-in-law. I'm happy to say that I...

Mindset of Gratitude

Mindset of Gratitude

There are certain topics that are timeless. The one that has been on my mind for quite some time is one that feels most appropriate for my life right now - The mindset of gratitude. One of the most important gifts we can give ourselves is the ability to be grateful...

Valentines Day Mindset

Valentines Day Mindset

No, I haven’t completely lost my mind. I know Valentines Day is over, that’s actually the point of this post.. The flowers are starting to fade and wither and the cards and gifts are already becoming a distant memory. So what are you doing to keep the Valentines...

Taking Action

Taking Action

Time to literally walk the talk! I'm going to be walking the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in memory of my mom-in-law, Bryna Kerska, whom I mentioned in an earlier post. I have asthma and even though I am active and walk on a regular basis, this distance while...

Your Mindset

Your Mindset

I was so prepared to start 2009 on top of my game, my “stop making resolutions” musings were waiting for me to hit the post button, I was happy, rested and into the full swing of a new year. On January 3rd, I received a call letting me know that my beloved...

Living Life

In my haste to leave, I never hit the "Publish" button for this post. oops, guess I really needed that vacation! Pictures and stories later this week. This is a very short post on my way out. Last week my husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary and in  a few...

Change

Change

Dear World, Please let today be the first day of our journey into a brighter era. That the last eight years has been difficult is a gross understatement. Rather than focus on the past and what went wrong, I’d like to focus on a brighter future.  I want to wake up...

Stay Balanced

Stay Balanced

We’re all busier than ever and this year in particular everyone is probably on information overload.  In the midst of the financial and political turmoil and an already full plate, we have to remember to stay balanced. It’s ok to play! We’ve gotten so used to the...

Visualization

Visualization

Long before visualization was all the rage in mainstream, it was something I did without even realizing the power it held. When I was little, I always dreamed of a better life - obsessed is probably a better word. When I was in my late teens, a friend passing...

Mindset in Children

Mindset in Children

Much has been written about success, achievement and mindset for adults, yet there seems to be a fairly small selection as it relates to children. I find this puzzling because childhood is such a critical time in the development of self esteem, which is more often...

Making a difference

Making a difference

If you ever thought that one person couldn't make a positive difference, take a moment to watch this video. It may start out a little slow, but stick with it. To watch this video is to know what I aspire to. My path may end up being different, but the end result is...

Success

Success

When you see your favorite athlete, business person or actor/actress do you ever look at them in amazement and marvel about their “fortune” in becoming successful? Do you wish you had the talent and expertise they do? What most people forget is that they are simply...

Your gut and brain

Your gut and brain

Call it intuition, a sixth sense, or your “gut”. I like to think of it as the deep dark recesses of your brain. The sooner you learn to access and trust this powerful resource, the sooner you can tap into real change in your life. Whether it's in business or a...

San Diego Earthquake

San Diego Earthquake

Yes  we felt the earthquake in San Diego, and yes we're ok - thank you for thinking of us. For those of you going home from Comic-Con, we just wanted to give ya a little excitement on the way out!  I was on the first floor of a two story building and the...

Randy Pausch: October 23, 1960 – July 24, 2008   If you haven’t watched this video, please make the time to watch it. If you have watched it, make the time to watch it again, and then give yourself the gift of living as Randy Pausch did. Not just waking up every...

Living a purposeful life

Living a purposeful life

Painfully reminded by the date of my last post, it’s amazing how quickly time passes. I’ve been remiss in my posts lately, but good things are happening. I’m focused more than ever on living a purposeful life. What does that mean exactly? By definition: Having...

Promote Tolerance

Promote Tolerance

Sometimes despite the best efforts to surround yourself with like-minded individuals someone sneaks in under the radar and jolts you into a world you wish didn't exist. Something I would consider a hate mail assaulted my inbox last night night. It came from a...

Twitter and Life

Twitter and Life

Jason Lee Miller of WebProNews recently asked "whats the point of twitter?" http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/2008/04/14/whats-the-point-of-twitter I love Jason's integration of philosophy and technology. This same question could be applied to much of life and the...

Did you Do it?

Did you Do it?

So, did you do anything differently last week, or did you stay in your comfort zone? Continuing down the path of trying new things, my husband and I attended the 25th Anniversary celebration for "Foundation For Change" http://www.foundation4change.org/ an...

Wake Up!!!

Wake Up!!!

What did you do differently yesterday? Did you wake up at the same time, take the same route to work, follow the same old routine? Do you even remember the drive in to work or school?  It's nice, comfortable and predictable. It allows us to live on autopilot. The...

Beyond Words

Beyond Words

Have you ever had an experience that words just can’t adequately describe? That sums up the last few days for me. It was the face to face portion of our Having It All Challenge. We were finally able to meet the people that we’ve spent the last five and a half...

Planning for 2008

Planning for 2008

How many of you are thinking about New Years Resolutions? This time last year, so was I. This year I can happily say that New Years Resoloutions are a thing of the past for me.  Don't get me wrong, planning is great, resolving, not so much. As part of our Having it...

Can We Really Have it All?

Can We Really Have it All?

I am currently going into my third month of John Assaraf’s “Having It All” Challenge (HIAC). I hesitate to use the word “program” because it’s so much more than that. It’s a life transforming course comprised of calls, webinars, podferences, guest speakers, seven...
