Tools for No … The Pause

(from my soon-to-be-published book, Just One Step: The Journey to Your Unstoppable You) A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the challenges of no – that “yes” is easy and that boundaries (“no”) are hard. In response, I had several people tell me that it’s so true for them and […]

The Feedback Loop

In a world where the norm is to avoid feedback and everything that comes with it (the judgments and criticisms), conscious leaders genuinely and continually seek to know themselves better (for better or worse), so they invite and crave feedback. They seek feedback for the same reasons as others—it’s the […]

Yes Is Easy … Boundaries Are Hard

(Excerpt from my soon-to-be-published book, Just One Step: The Journey to Your Unstoppable You) When I speak to audiences, I often ask them how many of them are great at saying “yes” to others, and an overwhelming number of hands go up. I then ask how many of them are […]

Beware Your First Answers

When it comes to asking questions of ourselves or about situations (often related to assessing risks), we need to be very aware of our first answer and even answers.

(Excerpt from my soon-to-be-published book, Just One Step: The Journey to Your Unstoppable You) Last week I wrote to you about feeling lost or stuck and the reality that being stuck is a choice. I also closed out my thoughts with a few comments on fear – the importance of […]

There’s No Stuck

(Excerpt from my soon-to-be-published book, Just One Step: The Journey to Your Unstoppable You) There have been times in my life when I felt lost and said so, whether it was meant generally or specifically about a certain aspect of my life, and this is something I regularly hear from […]

Just Explore

(Excerpt from my soon-to-be-published book, Just One Step: The Journey to Your Unstoppable You) Have you ever been lost? Have you ever felt lost? I’m sure that I have at some point in my life (at least metaphorically), but one specific experience on the Camino taught me this powerful lesson […]

Setting the Intention to Let Go

(Excerpt from my soon-to-be-published book, Just One Step: The Journey to Your Unstoppable You) I’m back from my Alaskan journey and disconnection, and now it’s time to get back to sharing thoughts and ideas that matter. Two weeks ago, I wrote about the reasons that we want to hold on […]
