Do you often ask yourself, “What do I want to do with my life?” or “Is this what and who I am supposed to be?”
Both are dangerous questions because they often lead people down an obsessive and endless path of “needing to know” versus “needing to grow”.
May I suggest a different approach? Stop ASKING yourself what you want to do with your life and start DOING things that will bring you more clarity…a clarity that can only be created by taking action. MORE
ROCK YOUR LIFE TIP: You will never exceed your expectations (not for long anyway).
Do you agree? That statement really resonates with me and I think that my expectations are how I really do self-sabotage myself. I see it in others too (heck it’s always easier to see self-sabotage in others more than in ourselves).
Here’s how EXPECTATIONS wreak havoc on our sense of joy, fulfillment and satisfaction. MORE
Do you SELF-SABOTAGE in the holidays?
Do you eat the box of chocolates instead of having just one? Or do you uncontrollably blurt something out when you KNOW you should just shut-up during Christmas dinner? “Really Aunt Martha, you should pay more attention to your personal grooming than my parenting skills”.

some days I wonder where I am going.
Today I feel this overwhelming and suffocating combination of grit, determination, exhaustion, excitement, lethargy and….confusion. Today is “one of those days”.
You know I talk a lot about clarity and how important it is to Soul-Centred Success. Some days I am not clear at all. Some days I say FUCK gratefulness and affirmations and self-love and instead I buy a bag of chocolate covered almonds and I eat every single one of those high calorie nuggets of momentary satisfaction.
Clarity, like emotions, comes in waves. I am floating on the surface letting the waves take me where I need to go. MORE
The other day I was chatting with a young woman who is at the very beginnings of her entrepreneurial career. She was frustrated with the fact that others around her were getting opportunities while she was being passed up. Her discouragement was tangible. Her heart was heavy.
I asked her if being passed up for opportunities was actually giving her the space to create her own.
Do you STALK your COMPETITION?
It’s so easy to become exhaustingly immersed in the perceived on-goings of your competition. Following their Facebook Page, tweets, advertising campaigns, market involvement and cross-customer feedback all provide useful information. In many ways, these activities of new-age obsessiveness are effective tools. Understanding competitors marketing methods and analyzing creative strategies they are employing offers insights into how they are, or are not, playing the industry game. MORE
