3 Simple Steps To Stop Making It So Freaking Hard

Freaking hard

This year Mike and I have had a goal to be one of the top 25 growers in the network marketing company we partner with.

Last year we had the same goal and we missed it by one spot. We were number 26. It simultaneously felt great to be that close (you know what they say: if you shoot for the moon, at least you’ll land amongst the stars) and crappy to miss the chance to be whisked away on an all-expenses-paid trip to the Dominican Republic.

New Year, New You, New Earth

It's the New Year as I write this.  The topic on my mind is LIFE.  Yesterday in church with the teens I teach we discussed LIFE as a power.  I said to them that LIFE is what we experience in this moment, right now.  Life is not in the past.  The past is gone.  If you're hanging out in the past, you are in a ghost town.  Life is not in the future.  The future is not guaranteed, it doesn't exist until it becomes the present.  All of our power is in this moment right here.  So what can you do with this moment?

How To Handle Your Feelings About The Sandy Hook Shooting

How does one handle the news that 26 people were shot in an elementary school, 20 of whom were small children? Managing our feelings in situations like this can be confusing and overwhelming. How do we find any power when we’re powerless? How do we go on with our day-to-day lives when such a tragedy is unfolding so close to home? How do we act normally without fear of going to the movies or the mall or dropping off our kids at school?

The Stages Of Spiritual Growth

I’ve been feeling inspired to write this post.  I’m writing it solely based on my own experience and the various books and ideas I’ve studied.  I’m only an expert in my experience, so if you feel I get something wrong in this entry, keep that in mind and (kindly) throw your 2 cents in.

Breaking Away From The Male Stereotype?

Last year Northwestern University put out some discouraging research that confirmed what most of us know about leadership stereotypes – they’re male.

There are other studies that say actual women – not stereotypes - are often viewed as very good leaders. But the stories we tell are filled with stereotypes.

Take Off Your Corporate Mask – Step Into Your Power

This month while I’ve been giving my eSeminar to the amazing and brave people intent on developing their own Authentic Leadership Style, I’ve been exploring deep and powerful dimensions of authenticity and sharing them on my blog. One of the elephants in the room when we talk about authenticity is emotional discomfort and even fear. We assume that being authentic – and taking off our “corporate mask” – to allow our authentic self to shine at the office means revealing weaknesses about ourselves that can undermine our career and success.Of course we’re all capable of undermining ourselves, but honestly the only times I see this happen as a result of taking off the corporate mask is when I (or others I know well) have gotten our authentic selves so out of sync with our masked selves that seeing the two “in the same room” (so to speak) is a shock. And when this happens, the dramatic gap is already undermining our success. It’s just that because we have our mask on, we usually don’t see it (though others usually do). In my experience, taking off the corporate mask can only strengthen you.

Who Am I? The Magic Of Personal Branding

Practical experience and research both tell us that women struggle more than men to speak up and promote themselves. Even women who speak up often find it hard to “sell” themselves. If you’re on the corporate ladder this can slow (or stop) your climb; when you’re self-employed, it can kill your business. Obviously the stakes are high!

Fear, One Breath From Excitement

Sometimes I dream about men who want to kill me. Angry, obnoxious, patronizing men filled with resentment and hurt egos. The other night it was my dad chasing me with a pair of scissors, the week before, it was Arabs threatening me, because I didn’t hide my face and body.

Is Medicine A Fundamentalist Religion?

For the first 36 years of my life, I was raised in a fundamentalist religion, where I was indoctrinated by zealots, frequently abused by the leaders of my religion, and oppressed when I expressed dissenting beliefs.

My religion was medicine, and I’ve now learned that much of what I was taught was patently untrue.
