I heard an analogy this week that stuck with me. It was that I’m a thoroughbred and my jockey is whipping me to perform. Wow. The visual in my mind is crystal clear. Holly whipping herself to achieve no matter how sick or how tired she was….no matter how much her body was screaming forContinue reading “Whipping Yourself to Achieve”
How many times last week did you say “I don’t have enough time”? What fun and joy did you miss out on because this was your automatic response? If you are like I was, you may be saying this multiple times a day without even realizing it. You believe that you are super busy andContinue reading “Time Anxiety”
Do you get tunnel vision when you are going after a goal and ignore the other parts of your life? I sure did and it led me down the path of some serious imbalance and stress. It’s interesting to me that tunnel vision is something our bodies do under stress. I personally have never hadContinue reading “Tunnel Vision”
Have you ever held back from asking for help because you didn’t want to look or feel stupid? I’ve done this all my life. I start to feel unsafe when I don’t know something and I’m talking to a person who I’ve deemed to be an authority or expert. I immediately change the subject backContinue reading “Fear of Looking Stupid”
I gave a speech this week for our local Young Marine’s organization to celebrate the promotions of all the great kids who worked hard this year.

Many of my clients tell me that they aren’t very good at making decisions. This definitely isn’t true or they would starve toContinue reading “Decisions, Decisions, Decisions”
I can’t believe how many of my clients, friends and coworkers overthink. Hell, I can’t believe how much I overthink. You know what you get when you overthink? Stuck. Like your tongue with a PBJ, stuck. No action. I’ve seriously been overthinking what I’m going to say to you since this morning. What an inefficientContinue reading “Overthinking Leads to Stuck”
I can’t relax until everything I decided to do today is done. This is the thought several of my clients have had this week. I have it all the time as well.

Does something just feel off in your career? Are you thinking that there has to be something more? That you were put here to do great things and this just isn’t it? Your alignment may be off.
