You Need to Hit The Reset Button

I have to come clean.

In this month’s Business Insights newsletter we sent out a couple of weeks ago, I highlight three changes I’d made in my life that’d made a big difference in feeling less overwhelmed, more on top of things, and generally freer.

I’d decided to simply my life by taking on less.

I created some new boundaries to protect me from the overachiever, Type A, driven me.

And I gave myself more self-care time.

I was pretty proud of myself for making them. And everything was going great.

Well guess what?

Watch the Best TED Talk Ever

Best TED Talk … says who?

Well, I do. Oh, and the thing’s gotten over 15,300,000 views.

But there are a lot of great TED Talks out there. We use a couple in our trainings. What makes this one so special is it just happens to offer up the secret to being happy … even when … especially when … circumstances don’t align with your desires and you’ve lost the freedom to choose.

Get Out of the Drama Triangle

I loved my mother.

She was my Mom and no matter what, we’re hard-wired to love our parents … our mothers especially.

My Mother was a very difficult person to be with. Very negative … some would describe her as cantankerous at best.  She was also very much a victim of her life … a martyr … a victim of her circumstances.  You know the type.  Just being in their presence can negatively impact your energy.

And the not so pretty truth is that my Mother taught me how to be a victim.  I was quite good at it, especially after being widowed twice.

Bring Me Sunshine

I don’t watch the news.

I know a lot of people feel as if they need to stay informed. That’s fine, but I prefer to take a different approach.

A Good Day

What constitutes a good day in your world? And what makes a bad day a bad day?

It’s all a matter of perspective, isn’t it?

There’s what happens and then there’s how you view it. Some see snow falling and cringe. Others admire the beauty.

This Is What’s Making You Tired!

It was bothering me … taking up mental and emotional space … and I wasn’t doing what I needed to do to resolve the issue, so it continued to bother me.

What was it? An issue with my accountant. I’ll tell you more in a moment.

But does it matter what the issue was?

No.

Because life is full of stuff you have to deal with.  If it isn’t one thing, it’s another.

The issues themselves don’t matter.  

The only thing that matters … and it matters a lot … is this:

Do you deal with them … or don’t you?

More to the point …

John Lennon – The Key To Life

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy.”

How To Get More Clients & Make More Money

There’s a fantastic way to build your business by leaps and bounds … in a short period of time.

It’s truly transformative. It’ll bring you new clients and keep bringing them to you … as many as you want for as long as you like. I know, because that’s what it’s done for me. I can trace more than a million dollars worth of income directly to the results I’ve gotten from following this one powerful strategy.

And it’s not going to eat up your time or your money like networking and advertising will.

It’s the greatest marketing strategy there is … by far … for building a service-based business.

Drive in NYC? What, Are You Crazy?

I have to tell on myself.

I’m pretty scared to drive around big cities.

So, when I booked a speech on Long Island, New York, I faced a dilemma. I couldn’t get out to where I needed to go and back without paying a small fortune to a limo company or attempting a series of really problematic connections via train and taxi. And I sure didn’t want to drive.

Rent a car and drive in New York City, coming out of LaGuardia and onto the Long Island Expressway? Oooooh baby, no thanks!
