Showing Up As Yourself

Ever have one of those moments where you think you know how something is going to go, and then it turns out completely differently, but it still works to your favor? That was my experience last week when I asked my facebook connections to vote on a video topic for a contest I'm entering. I […]

Humanity & Divinity

I've been wanting to write a post for a very long time about a concept I dubbed "the two I's". Inasmuch as we have two eyes through which we see the world, there are two "I's" through which we see the world: our divine self and our human self. You can try to dodge them, but […]

924: The old Porsche and a new perspective

About a year ago, my husband and I bought a Porsche. We call it "The Time Machine" because it's really a blast from the past. When we bought it, we got the expected commentary from friends and family: "A Porsche? Really? How can you afford that?" "What are you going to do with a Porsche? […]

My Love-Hate Relationship With Comparisonitis

"I am enjoying showing up as myself more completely." That was the nugget of gold I rendered from my weekend intensive with my coach this past weekend. Once a quarter I sojourn in Minnesota for a few days to do deeper work to heal my "stuff" and open up blocks around my mindset. Because I'm […]

(Author's note: this post originally appeared in 2011 on one of my old blogs. I've freshened it up a bit for you today.) One of the things that really annoys me are those folks that say they want change, but don't take action when answers are provided. It dawned on me why they don't budge. […]

His children, gathered in the room, listened to him tell off […]

Safety Is Your Nemesis

[Note: I originally wrote this post a few years ago, for my Business Action Hero website. I've refreshed it here because it's still relevant - maybe now more than ever.] "If you are deliberately trying to create a future that feels safe, you will willfully ignore the future that is likely.” - Seth Godin It hit […]

Cheerios & Howard Stern: What You Can Learn About Your True Voice

[Note: This isn't a topic I get to blog about much, because, well, my skin color is usually irrelevant to the work I'm doing in the world (funny how that works, huh?). I've been very fortunate that the bulk of the racist remarks I've dealt with in my life stemmed from ignorant classmates during my […]

The Pretender, The Coward, or Your True Self: Which "You" Are You?

Last year, I was introduced to a concept that I've continued to grapple with from time to time. The picture below is taken from page 61 of Dr. Maria Nemeth's book "The Energy of Money". It's an illustration that one of her teachers once shared with her: When my coach first introduced it to me, […]
