Are You Overspending Because Of Your Scarcity Mindset?

Are You Overspending Because Of Your Scarcity Mindset?

Are you wasting time worrying about your spending habits? Learn how to spend from a place of empowerment, integrity and abundance.

All overspending comes from a place of scarcity. 

Think of retail therapy. Are you spending money to feel better?

You know that rush you get when you buy something? Your brain actually gets a dopamine hit when you buy something from a place of wanting to feel better. It’s the same as when you eat that 3rd cookie, instead of just the one you planned on. You ask yourself, “Why did I eat that when I knew I only wanted one?” It’s always because you wanted to feel different or better than you were feeling—even if you’re unaware of it. Eating sugar in concentrated amounts also gives your brain the reward of dopamine. Eating and spending can both be addictive. Just like alcohol, drugs and social media can become addicting.

Math or Mind Drama... Which One Keeps You From Making More Money?

Math or Mind Drama... Which One Keeps You From Making More Money?

Math vs. Mind Drama

For example, let’s say you want to make 200 K. That’s the math of the equation.

Everything else is mind drama. Mind drama includes doubts about your capabilities, the “how,” of how you will go about making that 200 K and all your other beliefs surrounding making the 200 K. All of these beliefs really have nothing to do with making the 200 K.

How to Think About Your Earning Power to be a Badass Lady Boss

These 4 principles about earning money have changed the lives of many of my clients. They’ll change yours too. And— save you so much time, effort and relieve you from a lot of unnecessary financial and time-related stressors. 

I’m not going to focus on the “how” but rather on bigger concepts of the mindset shifts you must make to earn what you want and what you’ve always deserved.

Lately, I’ve been talking to you about all things money and time-related. Today, we’re focused on your earning potential. Your current beliefs about money are what’s causing you to get the results you’re currently getting regarding how much money you are generating and your earning power.

How much time have you wasted contemplating your ho-hum debt? How to think about debt and create something magnificent.

How much time have you wasted contemplating your ho-hum debt? How to think about debt and create something magnificent.

 Debts are “neutral and just there,” you could feel peace of mind today no matter what your debt. Here’s how.

I’ve been coaching a lot of clients lately on money issues and I wanted to share with you some of the most important ways to shift your mindset about money and debt to help you live your most irresistible life. Don’t let debt get in your way of your dreams.

Money’s a topic we all have some “issue” about because of our particular money blueprint, or money beliefs. Beliefs are always optional. So, don’t stay stuck believing your problem-based thoughts about money.

Creating Money by Creating Value = More Free Time in Your Week To Do What You Love

Creating Money by Creating Value = More Free Time in Your Week To Do What You Love

A lot of you will notice when you examine your mindset around money and time that you have a belief that you have to put in a lot of effort and time to make money. When time and effort = money, you’re basically sitting there with your hand out waiting to get paid. Do you currently feel that you “should” get paid the most you can for the least amount of effort and time? That’s not empowering. And that won’t create more of what you want in life. It will keep you stuck though.

What I am about to share with you is so important. Hint: You must get out of that “hand held out waiting” passive role and into massive action to create value from thoughts that serve you and don’t burn you out.

Make More Time With a Money Mindset

Make More Time With a Money Mindset

Money can buy you time, and there’s nothing more valuable than time.  

Some people think there’s nothing more valuable than money- I would argue there’s nothing more valuable then time.

It’s true the more money you have the more time you can buy, You can hire a work and personal assistant to do all the things you’re— ehhh at, or ehhh about doing and spend that time doing what really matters to you. What if you could spend more time with loved ones, doing things you truly value, or creating your life from your zone of genius?

Have you had a situation lately where you felt judged? Did someone misinterpret who you really are? I have. It sucked. It shook my confidence. I wasted a few days procrastinating because I was so disappointed. But you know what? It was one of the best things that happened to me. I got in touch with my feistiness— a feeling that really gets me determined and in touch with my true essence! I know who I am. I know what I am capable of. I know I do awesome work with my clients and they get incredible results. I am so honored to do what I do. Why the hell do I care about what others think? And why do you?

Got Confidence?

Got Confidence?

This is going to change your life and here's why. Confidence is the single most important feeling or “tool” that you can use to fuel your dreams. And I’m gonna give you the secret formula to increase your self-confidence today!

I just got back from our second and last in-person Master Coach Training. Where my coach and mentor asked us what’s difference between confidence and self-confidence. I loved her take on it.

Just a fun little note we flew on a private jet from Dallas to Austin. Hello? See the picture? That was a surprise and so much fun. Here’s a picture of me getting off the jet headed for our two days together so that the best of the best could get into every nook and cranny of each of our minds to uncover all the BS that could be holding us back from making our wildest dreams a reality and be able to do the same for our clients. That’s what’s required to become a master coach - basically master your own mind.

Planning Out Your Week

Planning Out Your Week

The way I overcome my primitive brain and it attempts to stop me from doing things that feel uncomfortable but ultimately lead to my goals is to invite a conversation. I talk to my mind. I listen to what it has to say, thank it for it's concern and assure it we're safe to move on. Then I get to work at creating what it is I truly want in my life. Talk to your mind and do it anyway! 

How to Get Out of the Habit of Self-Sabotage

How to Get Out of the Habit of Self-Sabotage

Last week I talked to you about creating ONE impossible goal for 2019. Did you do the assignment? I really hope so because it’ll change your life!  

When you have a BIG goal it becomes even more important to understand the spiral of self-sabotage.

Self-sabotage defined. It’s the act of creating unnecessary problems for one’s self that interfere with your own goals.

Why Being Past-Focused is Never a Good Idea

Why Being Past-Focused is Never a Good Idea

How do you interpret your past? 

Your past is anything that’s happened up until this very moment. Be clear that all the things you’ve EVER done or not done is what you’ll use to define who you are.  

So, as this year wraps up. I wanted to help you say goodbye to the past you, the parts you didn’t like, in order to get focused on what you want to create in the New Year.  

It’s important to have rituals that support you when there’s a marker in time, so you can look at this last year and how you can learn from it, make adjustments, and move on. Please don’t dwell on what you aren’t happy about. That just won’t serve you and there’s no need to bring that into the New Year into the new you.  

These skills I will teach you here are important because you’ll learn how to define yourself by your future, instead of your past. 

The next few writings you’ll receive from me are going to get you ready to have the best year of your life so far. So keep reading and stay tuned for next week.

Fact vs. Story = Miserable vs. Happy

Fact vs. Story = Miserable vs. Happy

Did you know that you can create your own unhappiness by how you choose to interpret the facts of your life?  

The next time you feel like crap, separate out the facts from the story. I promise using this technique will make you happier immediately. Who doesn’t want some happy?  

What Do You Want to Use Your Life For? Knowing This Will Help You Make More Time.

What Do You Want to Use Your Life For? Knowing This Will Help You Make More Time.

It’s a big question right? What do you want to use your life for? 

When it comes to making more time in your life you really must answer this question for yourself.  

The reason this is important is that when you know what you want to use your life for, you can live intentionally. What's the point in teaching you how to make more time in your life to make more money, have loving relationships and a lifestyle that rocks if you don’t know what to do with that extra time? 

Don't Waste One More Minute When Your Brain Tells You, "You Can't Do Hard Things". It's a Lie.

Don't Waste One More Minute When Your Brain Tells You, "You Can't Do Hard Things". It's a Lie.

First things first, if you have been secretly worried that you may be incompetent that’s not it. That thought is a brain error! Repeat brain error! 

It’s not your fault that you keep starting and stopping or get into full-blown freeze mode when you try new or hard things, it’s your brain’s fault.  

Your brain is well-intentioned. Your brain's wired to protect you from danger. It doesn't want you to try new or hard things. It thinks you could die. It's programmed to protect you from being eaten by the next wild animal that comes around. It tries to conserve your energy at every turn in case of an emergency. But last time I looked no wild animal was out to get us anymore. Unless you are vacationing somewhere exotic and get lost from the crowd. This used to be a good thing because it kept our species going and allowed us to survive. But now it doesn’t serve us.  

If You Didn’t Say “I Don’t Know” How Would Your Life Be Better?

If You Didn’t Say “I Don’t Know” How Would Your Life Be Better?

How often do you hear yourself say “I don’t know,” either out loud or in your head? So many of us do right? But it stops us from accessing the wisdom that you have within. When I heard the concept that we all have the answers within us, I felt annoyed 😠. I initially thought, if I had all the answers then my life would be easy. But having the answer doesn’t = easier. But it does = you having a pretty darn good shot at making your dreams a reality. Without the confusion, you can bask in the sunshine of clarity and not the clouds and thunderous storms of angst. It’s so easy to have all the right answers for everyone else right, your best friend, your partner, your family? So why's it so hard to do that same thing for yourself? Because confusion, the kind we’ve been indulging in for a long time, gets you stuck in a labyrinth of "I don’t know’s,” with no end goal in sight. 

6 Steps to Beat Procrastination & a Little Technique Called NET

6 Steps to Beat Procrastination & a Little Technique Called NET

I fell off the wagon again… the procrastination wagon that is.  

I’m in Brussels for the first time right now doing my re-certification as a practitioner of Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET). I’m excited to be here for the next 3 days and visit the city. So far all I know is that Belgium's home to the best french fries in the world, ridiculously delicious Belgium chocolates & waffles, and that you must see a statue called the Manneue Pis (according to my NET buddy who’s from here). No one can tell me why this statue is popular here, but just that “everyone goes.”  

Ok so I didn’t see Manneue Pis, but I did see Jeanneke Pis. AND I want to confirm that yes I tried the fries and they were fantastic. Big deal coming from an American, no?  

4 Ways to Love What You Have (Relationships, Jobs, Etc.)

4 Ways to Love What You Have (Relationships, Jobs, Etc.)

You have the option to feel any way you want at any time. Your thoughts cause your feelings, and thoughts are optional.  

You need to know this. You always have the option to feel however you choose to feel. This is always available to you. Sometimes we choose to feel sad and angry and frustrated, and that's fine. That's our choice. We can choose to feel however we want, but you have to know and remember that it is always a choice. Your choice.  

It's when we start to believe that how we feel isn't a choice that we get ourselves into trouble. We leave jobs and relationships we think we dislike only to find ourselves in a similar situation because we don’t realize this fact that we get to choose our emotions.  

Why are you luckiest woman on the planet? Oh, just by asking your mind good questions?

 Why are you luckiest woman on the planet? Oh, just by asking your mind good questions?

Worrying is like praying for something you don't want.

One of my clients, let's call her Margo was upset because at 37 she's not met "the man of her dreams" and she desperately wants to have a family. She was very worried about it being "too late." She was also focused on how she was "unlucky in love," and how other people so found love were "the lucky ones." She also was feeling confused about the the next steps in her business.

How You Can Up-Level Your Life by Vanishing Self-Doubt!

How You Can Up-Level Your Life by Vanishing Self-Doubt!

Don't stop because of self doubt. Ever. It’s a lie. Made up by the oldest part of your brain, the reptilian brain to try and keep you safe. It’s on high alert, but you don’t need to be when it comes to believing in yourself.

Many of my clients are already very very successful people, though they may try and be modest about it if you asked them... but each time they want to grow and evolve they have to deal with self-doubt. Of course, I do too. And a couple of points here...

Are You Repeating the Same Old Patterns? How to Stop!

Are You Repeating the Same Old Patterns? How to Stop!

Our mind is an interesting thing. When we are young our minds are in a completely different brainwave state than when we are adults.

So until about the age of 7 or 8 years old, we download all the things that are our experiences in life and this helps to shape our personality and understand all the stimuli of life that comes our way. If our minds didn’t work like this we would be like infants all of our lives, literally seeing things for the first time ALL the time and as you can imagine we would not be able to function as adults. This does not mean our minds are set in stone because of our previous programming. 

But if you are not aware of this phenomenon you might repeat realities from the past or unhealthily blame your parents or your current partners in relationships for “triggering you,” to respond in whatever way you are conditioned to do.
