We all need to hone the skill of increasing our productivity if we are serious about our success. It takes commitment to focus and to execute to be sure! I always find that regularly bringing my attention to the question of "How productive am I being?" is very helpful. Consistency is one of the biggest challenges to my success and profitability, and not having systems is one reason. When I have a system for something, I rock it more consistently. Productivity can also have a system. What would you achieve if you had a system to be productive? Yeowza! Great thought.
Note: I think they're equally important, so I'm not going to number them.
Knowing how to stay resilient in a world as busy, stressful and chaotic as today, is essential for overcoming stress and anxiety. Resiliency, to me, means being able to bounce back to my happiness, hope, emotional balance, and energetic power when stresses and challenges derail me. Life can be pretty hairy at times. Just tune into the news these days and you're apt to be swept away by a torrent of fearful, cortisol -inducing dark thoughts of the future. Personally, I avoid that practice like the plague.
Tuning into the news that is. It's never served me to focus on what's wrong, what's dangerous, or what's about to change the course of our lives in horrible ways. As a manifesting maven, I'm way too powerful with my energy field to have it blasting out fear, doubt, and negativity. From an energetic perspective, that only serves to contribute to the chaos. Now, I'm sure I'm not the only one when I say that I can't stand...
So one of the major breakthroughs I've had lately in my life is demanding of myself and finding balance in my life between the work and the play. Isn't that an interesting choice of words ("demand of myself")..actually as I wrote that it kind of startled me. Isn't that what being the creator of our lives is all about? Demanding things of ourselves.
Letting go of sabotaging thoughts and patterns, to step into the abyss of new territory, to seek excellence and the happy path.
For me I have demanded balance in my life. This meant sometimes doing nothing but relax, when I really needed to be meeting a deadline. Magically the deadlines are always met.
Maybe it was saying "yes" to my husband or teenage daughter when I really wanted to be catching up on work. The happiness and love I received from that choice more than powered up my catching up.
Productivity is such a hot topic in this busy age of scrambling to make a living, to deal with all the responsibilities and distractions that are constantly bombarding us. We don't even realize how much cortisol we are always producing.
It's something we all need to consider if we are serious about our success.
The unfortunate thing is that most people's approach is to work harder and longer, which is contrary to what I teach my clients.
The pressure of that approach creates a chronic state of stress on the body and a continuous flood of cortisol - the stress hormone that wreaks havoc in our body.
It's just a matter of time until you are exhausted, drained, not sleeping, feeling like sh*t, and just burned out or worse - depressed, dealing with anxiety, or really sick.

When making difficult decisions it totally drains you, and wastes your time. When chronic, it creates anxiety and depression.
If you're constantly making difficult decisions but can't seem to choose, that indecision just plain squelches your self-confidence.
Many of my clients have problems with decision making, probably because it's one of my weak points. "As within, so without" kinda stuff. I'm a bright and shiny object person with a VERY active and creative mind. I have had to ramp that quality down to become a successful entrepreneur.
I have found these 6 steps to be most effective and help me immensely when faced with having to make a difficult decision.
1. First I place both options in a win-win model. When trying overcome indecision, instead of looking at all the bad "what-if's", I look at the benefits of each option. This opens my mind to what is possible, what can be gained,...
A change in stress mindset is how you regain that inner power.
Whenever I uplevel my business, I uplevel myself in the process. It's inevitable really. Afterall, isn't being an entrepreneur just one big self-development lab?
It doesn't mean it's always comfortable or fun.
In fact, growth is often accompanied by the old "Amygdala Hijack"- fear, insecurity and doubt, firing off the morning after you dialed in your next brilliant move in your business.
That phenomenon drives me nuts! I go to bed on fire, and I wake up a blithering pool of self-doubt and overwhelm.
It's like my brain literally turns into someone else's- Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde stuff. It's crazy making.
A flood of cortisol is never a good way to start the day. It robs us of our energy, our confidence, our creativity, our drive. It's nasty stuff, that cortisol.
I got a reminder from nature this morning, when in the hot tub, of how to...

We try to stay focused for way longer and harder than we should. Often we think being productive is accomplishing as many different tasks as we can in too short a time frame, but is this definition of productivity actually bettering your business?
Do you enjoy it?
How do you feel staring at a computer screen, constantly writing notes or researching ALL DAY, only getting up for a drink or the toilet?
It's draining! Not to mention totally boring.
You've got to know how to enjoy work AND get shit done. You don't need to be mentally and physically drained at work.
1. Start by doing something for you. When you sit down to work, put on beautiful music, have fresh flowers on your desk and/or even burn some aromatherapy. This first step is to get...
One of the critical things we must use for our brain to change our money mindset and support our financial goals, is the visual and emotional impact of images.
Take a moment to think.....What does wealth look like?
Let me help, because most clients are so stuck in struggle stories that they can't get their head out of the weeds to see possibility. It's like they don't even have receptors of what that could look like. Lets play a little money making mind game.
Read this and feel how this sits with you energetically. Do a quick body, mood scan before you read this to get a baseline. Read it slowly and really connect into the images and the feeling of what they elicit.
You travel first class, you eat in beautiful restaurants, you have gorgeous bouquets in every room of your house, your fridge is full of organic beautiful food in beautiful containers, you have someone come...
