HOW TO BE YOUR MOST AUTHENTIC SELF

HOW TO BE YOUR MOST AUTHENTIC SELF

Talking time and space to know the ins and outs of who you authentically are at your core, aligning the rest of your life to who that is, and refining and growing your life through this lens is how we all are able to step into our own unique magic and give this world exactly who we were created to be and become.

I was thrilled to have my dear friend Dannielle “D” Alphonse from Be You & Thrive and the ‘The Practice of Living as we Intend’ podcast on Mondays with Meg with me today as my special guest. We have become virtual soul sisters this past year as we have gotten to know each other and I love that she is so passionate about helping women live their very best life.

THE BEST WAY TO COPE WITH REJECTION

THE BEST WAY TO COPE WITH REJECTION

To dream, dare and live authentically also means that we are almost guaranteed to have some rejection and criticism happen in our lives. I might even argue that if it doesn’t happen, then maybe you’re not daring and dreaming large enough!

Learning to move through the emotions attached to rejection/criticism is the key to success, and here are a few strategies to give you a healthier and better way to process it:

DETERMINE YOUR PRIORITIES FOR ULTIMATE TIME MANAGEMENT

The best way to get a handle on how you are spending your time is to get a 1,000 foot view of it. It’s so hard to have proper perspective on how you are really spending your time day to day when you’re right smack in the middle of it barely surviving, running from one thing to the next.

So I created an Ultimate Guide to Time Management for you and I am thrilled to get it into your hands so that you can begin to walk out your days with less stress, less chaos, and more time for what really is important for you in your current life season.

REFLECTIVE WRITING FOR POSITIVE CHANGE

REFLECTIVE WRITING FOR POSITIVE CHANGE

I can remember journaling as far back as when I was in the fourth grade. I would often have trouble sleeping at night and didn’t want to wake anyone up, so I started writing and drawing to pass the time until morning or until I fell asleep. I fell in love with music right about the same time, so a lot of what I would write would be lyrics to my favorite songs and just my thoughts about my friends and the bands that we listened to.

BUILD YOUR RESERVES

BUILD YOUR RESERVES

Having reserves reduces stress. Reserves of what? Reserves of EVERYTHING! My stress is lowered when I know I have reserves of intangibles, like energy, and reserves of tangibles, like gasoline. Whenever the orange fuel light pops on in my dashboard, my eyes flip down to the lower right side of the dash and there it is, that little orange fuel light that says I better stop soon. If you’re like my kids, you’re thinking, “Yeah, so?” They can drive for days with their fuel light on. My tendency is to want to pull over to the first station I see to maintain my reserves. Running out of gas would not be the end of the world, but it would be a big hassle I’d like to avoid…. And it’s relatively easy to avoid: just stop and refuel.

KNOW YOUR LIMITS TO SCALE YOUR CHOICE

KNOW YOUR LIMITS TO SCALE YOUR CHOICE

In coaching conversations I often ask, “On a scale from one to ten, how committed are you to this goal? Ten being ‘absolutely committed, it’s basically done’ to one being ‘I forgot the goal already.’” If the answer is seven or under, the client and I work together to adjust the goal so that their commitment level rises to at least an eight. It is only at that level of commitment that lasting change will take place.
