“Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out.”~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
~ Do you live with “What if” thinking?
~ Do you avoid an outrageous life because of what others might think of you?
~ Do you always seem to be getting ready to start? “Tomorrow… Someday.”
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are not alone. Most of my coaching clients report being afraid to go for their dreams out of fear that they would look foolish, make a mistake or be rejected. In fact, I used to struggle with very similar feelings and fears.
If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”
“Your every action is either an anchor on your tail or it’s the wind in your sails.”
~ Joe Charbonneau
In my coaching practice I often work with individuals who genuinely desire to move to the next level of achievement or success, yet continue to hit roadblocks and obstacles. They cannot understand why, when they put in time, energy and effort, they are failing or are moving slowly towards their goals. One of the first things I do in such a scenario is to ask the following questions:
This is my new, personal blog. My mission is to help you perform fearlessly,
create outrageously and live boldly.
My goal is to create insightful, relevant and practical content that you can put to work in your professional and personal life. If you desire to approach your business, creative endeavors or relationships with less fear and more boldness, then this blog is for you.
I will be writing on personal development, enhancing your performance, productivity and becoming creative in the work that you do. On occasion, I will write about things that do not fit neatly into one of these categories.
I anticipate posting one to two times a week. I will send out an e-mail to everyone when I do, alerting you that a new entry has been posted. From there, it’s up to you. To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe via RSS or e-mail.
Please do provide me with feedback. I want to hear from you! If you disagree with me or want to provide an alternative perspective, go for it! The important thing is to tell me what’s on your mind.
