Helping You Create Your Extraordinary Life
Do you want to speed up the arrival of your dreams? Of course you do! So why does it feel like it’s taking so long? One reason might be because you haven’t uncovered your big dreams yet. It’s essential to be crystal-clear on what your dreams are before you start thinking about your goals, next project, or new year resolutions; because if you haven’t envisioned how you want your life to be, how do you go about creating it? This is exactly what I help women do in my Design Your Decade workshops, and I’d love for you to join me in one of the January sessions (or grab yourself the DIY version). In the meantime, you can get a jumpstart by asking yourself the following questions.
These questions will help you start to uncover your life’s dreams and make them a reality. So grab your journal, and start dreaming!
1. What is your highest...
My coaching, workshops, blog, and podcast all focus on helping women like you create an extraordinary life; but what exactly defines an extraordinary life? At the core, I consider an extraordinary life to be one that lifts you out of your comfort zone in pursuit of growth, joy, and purpose. To give you a better idea of what that might look like for you, I want to share some components of an extraordinary life, and the types of women who are pursuing their own.
The women that I see creating extraordinary lives aren’t unusual people. They haven’t been climbing the Himalayas or heading Fortune 500 companies, or unlocking hidden mysteries of the human body. They are the same people you see at the grocery store, driving their kids to soccer practice, or helping their aging parents with yard work. They truly are people just like you.
When my clients first come to me,...
I’ve been talking about how important habits and routines are to accomplishing your goals and creating an extraordinary life. But if you aren’t clear on where you are going or what you want to be doing, then you probably aren’t sure what those routines and habits need to be. That’s why it’s so important to clarify your life vision. I think this is the most important of the 6 high performance habits, even if (like me,) you aren’t aiming to be one of the most successful people in the world.
How do you know that you’re lacking clarity? A big clue is feeling overwhelmed in life. There are so many things to do, and there never seems to be enough time or energy to do them all. When you are clear on where you are going, however, it becomes much easier to prioritize your time, tasks, and even your thoughts. Here are the basics of finding clarity...
When you are ready to dream big and invite change into your life, it’s exciting! That’s probably why I often get asked, “what can I do now to get working towards my dreams?” The good news is that there are a lot of things you can do today, and then each and every day, to set the ball in motion. In fact, I came up with seven!
This list is a step-by-step mini-guide to creating your extraordinary life; however, you can stop and re-visit any step when it feels right. In fact, I regularly make time to go back and change things if they aren’t working, or if my goals have changed. So start with step one, and then take your time working through the rest. Remember: creating the life of your dreams is a daily practice, not a race.
Some people are surprised to hear that I have worked with my own coach and mentor in the past. After all, I spent years as an integrative health coach, and now I focus on high performance coaching. With so much experience and education behind me, you’d think I’d have all the tools I need to create an extraordinary life of my own. So yes, I have the tools, but we are all human! Sometimes, we need to ask for help when we are feeling stuck; and that’s exactly why I hired a coach of my own.
During my time as an integrative health coach for women, I focused very much on the entire person - not just their physical health, diet, and exercise. After all, if you aren’t treating your body well or are dealing with health conditions, the effects of that (and perhaps even the cause) can be found in other areas of your life, as well.
It was this interest in coaching the whole person and...
It’s halfway through the year already (can you believe it?), and I’ve been practicing gratitude daily for the past 591 days. Since October 28, 2019, each morning I write down five things I’m grateful for. Through the pandemic, extreme shut-downs, navigating sudden home-schooling, and even through the California wildfires last summer, I have been consistent, only missing a few days. This practice has reinforced for me the power of gratitude in creating a more extraordinary life, and I want to share what I’ve learned with you.
591 days of gratitude has changed my outlook and approach to life, despite being an already positive person. It’s improved my relationships, I’ve found more contentment in what I have, and it’s helped me find perspective when things get tough. And looking back on my entries, these three areas, or categories, appear consistently.
What if you approached self care as a gift, because you know you deserve the very best?
