140. How to Reach Seemingly Unattainable Goals
Have you ever felt like you’re doing all the things to reach a goal, but you’re super frustrated and discouraged with results?
I was there just this last week. In fact, I even said to one of my coaches, “Oh my goodness! I feel like I’ve tried everything.” And she said, “Ok, slow your roll. We’ve tried 2 things.”
She was right. We all have a little brain drama from time to time, amiright?! And THIS – the brain drama – is what feels so exhausting if we let it get away from us.
So in this week’s episode, I’m sharing build some mental muscles – like recognize which “Emotional Zone” you’re in and which one you need to be in to reach your goal – so you can keep moving forward toward your goals without burning out or giving up.
139. How to Like You!
When I asked a woman a while back why she was interested in coaching she said, “I don’t really like me.”
I think this is more common than we realize. I could certainly relate.
But often we don’t realize the reasons WHY we don’t like ourselves. We think we don’t like us because of the way we behave, the circumstances that we live in, or because we feel so burned out and overwhelmed.
We don’t realize we have options and we CAN like ourselves despite all of the things I just mentioned.
And this is so important because at the end of the day that’s what we have. And when we DON’T have a good relationship with us – it’s exhausting!
When we have our back, like our ideas and decisions, and are kind to ourselves it changes everything.
138. Emotional Marathons (+ Rest)
Do you ever feel like you have just run an emotional marathon? Sometimes it’s even hard to recognize when we’re in the middle of it because we’re in it – we’re in the thick of it – and we sort of become desensitized to it.
But when it’s over, we’re exhausted. We’re drained.
And interestingly we don’t rest. We head straight to the cookies or we watch Netflix for days.
On the podcast today I talk about these marathons and how to take better care of yourself when you’re in them and when they’re over so you don’t self-sabotage and start adopting habits you’re not happy about.
137. Why Monday
In the past when I didn’t do something perfectly or, frankly, I really didn’t want to do something – I’d tell myself I’d just start again on Monday.
But WHY Monday? Why do we do this?!
Monday makes sense to our subconscious mind, but in the grand scheme of things putting things off until Monday makes it super difficult to get things that matter to us. Most likely in ways we don’t realize.
In today’s episode, I share why we do this and more importantly how to STOP doing this. Because the truth is, there isn’t anything magical about Monday.
136. Getting Up and Good Mornings
Do you just hate mornings?…

135. Striking a Balance Between Being and Becoming

134. Eliminating Drag
Do you ever feel like you have some to-do items that have been on your list for weeks – even months?
Over time these little things start to drag our energy down and if we put them off for too long we can sometimes create 10 times the amount of extra work for ourselves. The result is a lot of unnecessary stress and overwhelm in our lives we can definitely do without.
133. How Hobbies Help Us to Be More Productive

132. All-or-Nothing – Out the Window!
Often we kill our productivity by taking an all-or-nothing approach to our goals. We try something out and want to knock it out of the park on the first try and when we don’t, we give up. In this week’s podcast, I share how to toss the all-or-nothing approach to goal getting out the window
131. Productivity With Little Kids
