What's Your Limit?

My entire body is in pain. I just spent the weekend using muscles I haven't used in two years since my last ski trip...and it feels amazing! This weekend was all about mother/son bonding, and pushing my own limits. See that sign there? Yeah, I skied it. Five times I went down those trails, with one wipeout when I got a little too sure of myself. I was convinced I was going to be recruited for the race team....not so much.

Two years ago, I probably had the same skill set, but wouldn't even dream of touching a black diamond, let alone a double! I was playing it safe. Staying in my tidy little box that I built for myself. Those days are OVER. Sitting on the lift after my first run down these killer slopes, I realized how far I've come in two years. How sure of myself I've become, how unwilling I have become to take any crap - especially from myself.

My secrets to getting to this place aren't really secrets. I can sum them up in three: - Meditation. Quieting my mind and tapping into my inner wisdom and strength. - Acceptance. Similar to the Serenity Prayer, I stopped trying to change the things within myself and others that I could never control. - My peeps. I have the BEST circle of friends ever. They are unbelievably supportive, smart, funny, and REAL.

That's it. Really. The scary thing is I feel like I just keep growing. What's next? Heli-skiing? Maybe....

How are you pushing your boundaries to make sure you are growing? How far can you go? Where do you want to be two years from now? Start now. You won't regret it.


Unlock Love - Feel your way out.

Throughout my career as a coach, I have had many transformations. When I began my practice, it was all about advice. What could I tell someone to do to make their lives better? What advice could I give that would lead them to the goals they desired? How could I direct them so that they avoided "mistakes"? It wasn't terrible. People made progress. But I was frustrated. What I realIzed for my clients and myself is that there is no one path that works for all. Like food, not every diet nourishes every body. Advice works for some people, some of the time. However, I found something that works for ALL people, ALL of the time! That was the revelation, and knowing that beyond a doubt...

All of the answers are within you.

Every single one.

It's the reason I have been pursuing a certification in hypnotherapy (and will begin incorporating it as a tool in my coaching). It's why my coaching focuses far less on practical advice than ways for you to look inside to find the answers that allow you to reach your goals.

Don't believe me? Feel it out.

Take a minute when you have a decision to make, or are wondering what path to take, and ask yourself. Get quiet. Ask the question. Be open, and listen. What feelings do you get when you ask yourself your question? When you feel that feeling, ask yourself why you feel that way? The more aware you are of how powerful and brilliant you are, the clearer the answers will be, and the less you will need me or anyone else to help you find out what you already know.

The answers are all within you. You just have to believe and listen.
