Hi amazing group of fabulous people! Happy New Year!
Here in Southern California we are having epic winds! It reminds me of the dance we need to adopt when we are in the whirlwind.
Watching the trees bend and blow and really move yet stand steady, certain and flexible! That agility is what is the key for all of us, especially during this time.
To be agile, to be courageous, to try new things and to go for the outcome of what we want without the fear of “breaking”. That is one reason I just delight in nature. It models the way.
To assist agility is having clarity. Now more than ever clarity is a must. We have talked a lot about clarity over the years and it is the secret sauce to exponential growing.
Think back to a time when you had absolute clarity. It might have seemed wacky to others or no one else understood but you were clear. Remember it?
Remember the energy that came with it? The focus and certainty that you could do it. That is gold!
Now think about something you have been wanting to shift, maybe around your career or health, reduce your stress, selfcare. It could be in any area of your life. Let’s get clear about it.
What do you want in this area? Be specific! Details. Details give us clarity. We can’t go for a vague result because who shows up when it’s vague? That loud Monkey mind. Yes, the worry, doubt and fear.
Write out the outcome you want to achieve.
For instance: “I want to be healthier so tomorrow I am going to start doing a cold shower, 3 minute meditation and warm lemon water before I start my day and I will do it for 40 days in a row.”
It is clear, specific, measurable and time defined!
Boom. Now your brain can deal with it.
Break something down that you have been wanting to do in its simplest form and then take action consistently.
Clarity and agility. You CAN do it!
Happy Tuesday everyone!
Happy, Happy New Year!!!!
Do you remember when you were a kid and you got into something so fully that you lost track of everything. It could have been sports or art or maybe it was math or reading a good book or writing and you realized you had gone into a time hole hahahaha. Hours and hours had gone by and it felt like minutes.
Maybe you have had this when you were out in nature or meditating or running. This is available at all times. Just catching the wave of our passion and interest and digging into it. If you don’t have much of this in your life can you add it?
Honestly for me it is being truly present. Even when I am doing things I don’t want to do (cleaning the house, vacuuming etc.) If I am present I can actually just zip through it in a much better mental state with energy and ease.
Otherwise I drag myself around, moaning and complaining and that just sucks and it takes twice as long hahahaha.
Give yourself the gift of finding ways to bring presence and joy into your everyday activities. Maybe it’s adding music or a podcast that is exciting and fun to listen to or an audible book while you drive to the grocery.
Are you willing to commit to adding in something you LOVE doing that you haven’t been doing. The key is to just add it bit by bit. I hear you from here, “Courtney, what? Add it in, how, how, how?”
Well the real question is why? Because it feeds your soul, adds pleasure, rejuvenates you, is self care and adds massive value to your life! That is the answer that will get you to do it. When you want to and you know why you need to you will find a way to do it. Period! You will.
Look back at a time in your life when you stuck something in that was so important and you had no idea how you were going to do it because you really didn’t have “time” and you did it and it was a WOW!
I did this with my colleague and amazing friend, Julie. We went to a business seminar in 2019. We both thought omg, how, can we really and we made it happen and I am grateful everyday that we did!!! You never know when the world will shut down and you won’t be able to do it.
You deserve it. Do it. You will feel so good. It will add energy and give you a boost.
This year, make it the year of doing what you know you MUST do, no matter what. Just do it!!!
Side note….I loved Soul the Disney plus movie that is live streaming! Check it out. So good. Flow, energy, spark….it is important. Happy happy New Year! Let’s gooooooo!
