Posted by on in personal success
Last night at our Powerful You! Women's Network meeting, one of our topics revolved around self-discipline and what motivates us to get things done and ultimately, succeed! We all shared great experiences, ideas, tips and our own personal successes. Giving it further thought, I was reminded about the one thing that I didn't mention and its value, it's all about the "WHY?" 
 
I've always coached my clients into success when we step back and look at WHY they desire this particular success and what would their life look like and feel like if they succeeded at this particular desire...

Here are some of the questions for you to ponder when you ask yourself WHY?  
 
Do you have a reason to succeed? Have you defined the reasons "WHY" you want to succeed? Do you live those reasons with every breath you take? Are you living a purposeful life? Do you take action daily based on your intent to achieve your dreams? Is life controlling you, or have you taken control of your life?
 
These questions can clearly identify for you if you are living your life with purpose and truly believe in your reasons "WHY" you want to succeed. Living with intent to succeed is a life that is driven, motivated, inspired and focused with every thought, action and behavior!
 
When you surround yourself with the reasons and you live with that intent daily, every day has meaning, purpose, and joy! When you keep the thoughts of those reasons foremost in your mind, you will naturally make choices that are aligned with your vision, your values, and your intent to succeed. When you are faced with obstacles and challenges, you can hold onto your "reasons to succeed" to pull you through and help you to strengthen your passion and vision for what you want to accomplish!
 
The only impediment to success is the lack of a reason for that success. Know your "WHY", connect with the reasons, keep that connection strong, and you will find your way to success regardless of the obstacles, insecurities, fear, and challenges you encounter.
 
When you have a reason; you own your life, you own your purpose and you have a stake in the outcome. When you have a reason, and live your life driven by your "WHY"; discipline, commitment, persistence, and creativity become the natural tools you use to accomplish your dreams.
 
The best motivation for success is to consistently keep yourself connected to the reasons "WHY" you want to succeed!!
 
Wishing you a Happy Journey into your Success!

Do you know what it feels like to have something constantly surface in your life and every time it does, you think of the same thing? Well, that "thing" for me is "The Four Agreements". I read this book as part of my curriculum when I was in training with iPEC (Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching) and eight years later, it is still a very big part of my life, my coaching, my personal journey, as well as my overall philosophy on life! So why the long lasting connection? This book offers four simple agreements and I am here to tell you, they have been life changing.

Did I just hear you complain about…

Posted by on in Leadership

Last night Pete & I watched  ”New Girl”  definitely not a PG! family type of show, nevertheless it was funny and I did Laugh out Loud!

So there’s one male character who’s a wannabe and he tries to hook up with every girl who breathes! What I liked was how they bash him for his crude behavior and more so, how his guy roommates keep him accountable for it with what they’ve dubbed a “Dou... B..” Jar. Every time he makes a “DB” comment or displays “DB” behavior,  he has to pay up and contribute to the Jar!  For example, the “New Girl” was crying her eyes out over a breakup and he proceeds to take his shirt off to show off his pecks, I would imagine to take her mind off things…lol

Integrity is…

Posted by on in Leadership

I was honored to be invited to be one of the Coaches who took part in the “Above Board” Chamber of Florida‘s panel discussion “How to be a Better You in Business.”  

One of the questions asked related to how the word “integrity” is being used so loosely and has become a “buzz word” in business and networking.  My response ended with, “when your actions and behaviors are consistent, ultimately those “acts” will tell the story, for better or for worse.”

In August of  2007 I wrote a blog post that I was reminded of  when I heard my Pastor’s sermon yesterday entitled ”Is Your Tank Full”  His message was one of enlightenment. He perfectly makes things real. He made us all realize that we have a choice to keep ” our tanks”  filled and more importantly, we get to choose what we fill our tanks with. Thank you Pastor Jay for that reminder! 

Upon further reflection of my old post, I realized how much I have grown spiritually and how the same post would be somewhat different today.  When I wrote the original post in 2007,  I was full.  I was grateful,  I was aware and I was serene.  I was content and extremely satisfied with my life.  Today, I see my life the same way.  Yet, I realize it is so much better because  I know mind, body and soul, it is all possible because of the faith upon which it is grounded.

light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel1In our darkest moments, we could never imagine ever having another happy day; can you relate to that?  It’s that feeling of the walls crashing in on you and all you can think of is how will I ever get past this, beyond this?

On such a day, my Coach, Fredi Baker said to me, “Elle, in the midst of all this, there is a gift.” I thought the woman lost her mind. I left the session feeling confused, angry, and very discouraged. How is it possible for me to see “a gift” in all this when I feel as though my heart has crashed, my life has lost its zeal…

Positive Energy

Feelings are Energy.

Thoughts are Energy. 

          Positive feelings and thoughts of awareness, appreciation and gratitude are the “fuel” that energizes your day.

Positive people produce positive energy...
