How Are You Speaking to Yourself?

HufPo.Text.Speaking

I used to speak to myself with such unkindness, most of the time not even realizing it or it’s impact.

Luckily, I no longer do and shared a bit of my story in my most recent Huffington Post blog.

I Dropped The Ball

Balls.text

It’s been a long time since I’ve shared.

As working women I know you can relate to juggling too many balls.  The feeling of just too much – that something has to give. My blog was a ball I chose to drop. 

I dropped it with a choice to be kind to myself. Full stop.

 

But now I’m back.

I have clarity and intention.

My mission is to be back in service to women just like us.

Women who want to:

  •        Thrive at work and in life but too often feel like we are failing at both.
  •         Do what we have been avoiding with increased confidence.
  •         Expand our networks in ways that add value to us and work within our schedule
  •         Connect with other like-minded women in relevant and productive ways
  •         Stop feeling like we are alone.
  •         Learn and leverage how others navigate similar scenarios

Sure, but why does it feel like such a challenge sometimes? 

Because this is life and our lives are full.  

And…it is the ONLY life we have to live.

What I now know is that the details around us are not going to change, just how we choose to navigate them can. 

But, we don’t know what we don’t know. 

Which leads me to my mission.  

My mission is to be an outlet for women, just like us. To plug into and to create the change we desire.  To leverage the experiences of other women in service of each other. I have some exciting new projects on the go that I CAN’T wait to share!

But in the meantime…

I just wrote a Huffington Post article titled: Is Status Quo Killing You? .

A great place to start is choosing to do things differently. To start taking inspired action. To get out of your own way, #GOOYOW, so you can live a life that brings you way more fun, joy, and success. 

Until the next time!

Best wishes, me.

3 Steps to Do What Scares You

Rock.text

Last week I presented a “How to Self-Promote Authentically, with Confidence” keynote to 250 people and that was big deal for me. I had convinced myself that my content was best delivered in more intimate settings.

When I accepted the invitation, from the Women’s Executive Network in Toronto, I assumed the group would be 30-50 people, 100 max.

Well I was wrong.

The week before the talk, I found out over 200 people had registered.

I was so scared, but I knew that quitting wasn’t an option.

Earlier today I posted “How to Do What Scares You” on the Huffington Post that I wanted to share with you.

I hope you enjoy the read!

 

 

3 Ways to Conquer Your Fear

A consistent theme in my conversations with intelligent, competent and ambitious women is fear.

Here’s a short VIDEO if you prefer to watch rather than read.

Fear.text

This fear can be boiled down of two things.

Fear that:

  1. We’ll be labelled badly – “They will figure out I’m not as good as they think I am”.
  2. We’ll fail.

3 Leadership Lessons from Yoga

After almost a decade hiatus from yoga I decided to try again six months ago – but quit after one class because I got hurt.

I allowed my competitive, “try your best”, self to take over…and yoga won.

Since then I have turned 40 and my body is screaming at me to do something differently, so I decided to check my ego at the door and try again.

The class was SO HARD.

How to Lower Your Frustration

I grew up with a ‘fire in my belly’, of course only on display around my family.

I am proud and grateful to say that for the most part my fire has been extinguished, but definitely gets ignited by triggers.

Triggered by things like how someone is responding, or not to me; when things are not going as planned; etc.

The little annoyances that we experience or encounter over the course of our day.

What is it for you?

What is something that is frustrating you right now?
