The Secret Saboteur

You know the old saying, “Never put off until tomorrow, what you can do today?” It's the basis for the secret saboteurs that we all have to face at some point. I’ve been putting off writing this article for days. I had a good idea for the article and coming up with the idea is half the battle, so no big deal! I’ll just sit down and write it. But each day for the last 10 days, I found myself doing something else (anything else) and day after day, before I knew it, the day was done but the ...

Finding Your Thermal Lift

In our aim to achieve our Best Year Yet®, a close knit circle of supporters and allies can be critical. This may take the form of family members, friends, and coaches. I propose the simile of storks preparing for long-distance travel. As they leave the ground, they fly wingtip to wingtip, watching one another, for the one that hits the thermal: the one that lifts the entire flock to higher air and saves energy for the long voyage....

Are Your Dreams Too Big?

  One question I get asked a lot is how to set the right goals. People worry that they aren’t being realistic when they let themselves dream or that they might be setting goals that are way too big to achieve – all of which begs the question, “What dreams are too big to be realistic?” As with most things, the answer to this question comes down to how important your dream is to you. The bigger the dream, the more dedication it may take. Does that keep you from setting big goals or inspire you to ...

Get Rid of Your Rear View Mirror

Lately, I’ve been distracted by my rear view mirror. I can’t get into my car any more without glancing at it and recalling a passage I recently read in a book called Miracle Morning by Hal Erod. In it, Hal says one of the most crippling causes of mediocrity in life is a condition he calls Rear view Mirror Syndrome (RMS )....

Save a Life Today - Your Own

My partner has a saying that helps me keep myself from getting caught up in the stress, drama and weighty-ness of work situations – “We’re not saving lives here.” It’s a great reminder that I don’t need to put too much stress on myself over the little things. Since I have stepped into my role at Best Year Yet®, I have a different perspective on that saying....

Demonstrate Commitment

Commitment is a powerful force that can change the course of your life.  It has mine. Without demonstrating you are serious by taking a step in the direction of what you want, that force can just slip away.  That first step, no matter how fearful it may be, is the act of claiming your power.  And the Universe loves nothing more than to support you in being the powerful person you are....

What Are We Waiting For?

Most of us are waiting.  We don’t realize we’re waiting because we’re so busy.  But if we really look, we’re waiting. We’re waiting for the right moment to get started on what we really want to do.  Or for the right job.  Or for the right person to join us.  We think to ourselves “Once I get this done, then I’ll really get started doing what I want.” But before we finish doing what we’re doing, we’re interrupted by another priority that pulls us away and off we go doing that thing, desperately ...
