Freedom to Change

Today I want to talk to you about the freedom to change. We’ve been on a theme of freedom this month because of July 4th and this is a very important freedom to be conscious of and to adopt. Now, why is that?

It’s very easy in the physical world to think that things are solid– like these leaves are solid, this iron railing is solid – and yet, over time, it all changes. These plants, they all change. We change.

Freedom to Choose

Today I want to talk to you about being free to choose. That seems to be self-evident, doesn’t it? It’s like, “Of course, I'm free to choose,” but in my experience, sometimes we’re really not. We think we are, but we’re really not. Making a choice conscious is a really great practice.

Creating Freedom

It’s Summer Solstice here in the northern hemisphere. Lots is going on. You may feel upset by the news. I don’t follow the news real closely, but three different friends have told me about the situation with the children at the Mexican border and they’re highly upset. That got my attention. It got me to thinking, “What can we do? What can I do? I'm not an elected official. I'm not in Congress. I'm not the president. What can I do?”

Align With Prosperity

Today we’re talking about aligning with prosperity. What does that mean? That means being 100% willing to be prosperous. Even though in your mind, you may think, “Oh, of course I want to be prosperous,” in your feelings, in your memories, in your body – you may not feel you deserve prosperity. You may think that it’s not right, that you haven’t done enough, or that somebody else deserves it more than you do.

Compassion or Companionship?

Do you ever feel a conflict about going for more abundance when others around you are struggling? Do you wonder whether your doing well hurts others – that you should just keep struggling too?

What do you deserve?

These questions probably often play in the back of your mind: “Can I buy a new pair of shoes?” “Can I afford a bigger home?” “Can I take a day off and not have my business or my family suffer?” “When do I get to take a REAL vacation?” Are you someone who wears shoes and clothes past their prime or lives in a place “that will do” or never takes a break to refresh and renew yourself?

What’s Your Story about Money?

Money is a subject that most of us pay a tremendous amount of attention to. Whether we are always aware of it or not, often these questions are playing in our mind: Do I have enough money? Why aren’t I earning more? Why is it so hard to hold on to money? Am I spending enough or too much on myself? Will I have enough money for the future? Why is money so hard to talk about? Why do my partner and I always fight about money?

“I love you being you”

Last week I wrote about my realization of the many years spent trying to be “not me”. Trying to fit in, to do it “right”, to be approved of and included. A friend responded so generously with, “I love you being you.” Isn’t that a great message to receive? For sure, we women are encouraged, directed, and even programmed to be “not ourselves”. Whole industries – fashion, makeup, hair, diet, body image, etc. - and career directions are built on women fitting into certain norms and roles.

The Second Basic Principle of Authentic Selling

In the last issue I said the first principle of Authentic Selling is Trust. The second principle is Transparency. Does it surprise you that you can be open and honest and still sell? It’s true! In fact, in our jaded, “I’ve been sold too often” world, it’s what works best, even if it is an approach you don’t experience often. Imagine talking to another person, wanting to help if you can, having a real conversation, and offering your services if they are a fit. All the while being honest, having integrity, and being transparent.

The First Principle of Authentic Selling

What do you have to know and do to be able to sell with authenticity and integrity? The first principle of Authentic Selling is TRUST. Trust of yourself. Trust of the other person. Trust of the process. One of the reasons you shy away from learning to sell well is that you don’t trust yourself to be true to your values and to honor the other person. Let’s look at that now.

Can a Conversation Change a Life?

This past week my coach was in Chapel Hill working with her coach. Yes, coaches have coaches – at least the good ones do to keep learning, growing and expanding so they can share what they master with their clients! I was delighted to have breakfast with her before taking her to the airport. At one point in the conversation, I talked about feeling an undercurrent of anxiety about the state of the world and about a situation in my business.
