[Video] What are Your Morning Rituals?

by

How do you start off your morning?

What you do in the morning matters!

It can set the tone, energy and attitude for the entire day. It can line you up feeling positive, confident and able to go with the flow of things (even if the flow isn’t going the direction you wanted.)

Watch this short video message and get some ideas for your own morning ritual!

I hope you en-joy!

PS: If you really want to reinforce morning rituals, consider coming to the Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea. We’ll practice some beautiful rituals to set our intentional energy and activate the creative alchemy. You can find more details here: http://www.joyfulbusiness.com/retreatbythesea.

[Video] It’s time…

I just wanted to share a quick note with you about the videos I’m doing on Facebook Live.

As you’ll hear in the video, I’ve been doing lots of healing, marinating and incubating over the last couple of years. It’s been a deep rich rollercoaster ride! That happens when you have huge personal shifts… and it can’t help but to impact your business as well.

I’ve really slowed down in my business to focus on getting clear about what it is that I really want. Asking myself… What wants to emerge next?

I’m starting to share it in this video.

I hope you enjoy and get inspired too!

To your creative success!

Passion Plus #4 Success Habit – Practice

by

Chattahoochee RiverI’m back home in between creative adventures.

Last week my 16 year old son, Sam and I, were in Atlantic Beach, Florida. I am a program coach for another coach and this was where we were holding a 2 day Immersion. I turned it into extra vacation for me and a week long vacation for Sam and his friend.

Next week I’m off to New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Being home in between trips feels both grounding and unsettling at the same time. I like “home” and how it enfolds me – encouraging me to rest and nurture. But I also feel another urge. To be out in the world. Especially in nature.

So several mornings this week before coaching calls and classes I’ve taken myself down to the beautiful Chattahoochee River. Sitting by the river I feel I can breathe fully. I feel expansive. I feel connected to the bigger world. Then as I take a walk in the woods nearby I can feel my body relax into what I most want to create and how I want to BE in the world. I can feel the PUSH feeling ebbing and shifting into a surrendering of what I really want.

As I started creating this post, I wasn’t expecting to write about this.

And yet, this is what is so present for me. Surrendering to life.

Circling back around to our message for today about how it takes more than Passion to create success.

It takes…

Passion PLUS Practice.

For me, it’s a practice to surrender. Being passionate about my work, my message, my business and my life gives me energy but it’s a type of raw energy.

You have to practice your passion to refine the energy.
