Last month I decided to start capturing the array of interesting conversations and meaningful insights I have each week. Here’s what’s sticking with me today.
- The unique grief of losing a beloved family member who you wanted to pass on because they hadn’t been themselves for far too long.
- That moment when you find out a well-respected, high-profile person in your field has just launched a business eerily similar to yours, and you discover within yourself the capacity to be thrilled for them, thrilled for the industry, and eager to partner to make the world a better place—together. The scent of…validation?
- Sometimes you get a funny feeling about a prospective client. There isn’t anything that’s explicitly a red flag; there’s an opening for coaching, you get along well from the start, but still you get weird vibes about the overall situation. I call that a yellow flag, and though it doesn’t stop me from moving the engagement forward, it does give me pause. I proceed with caution. So far, so good. So far, so good. Then: BAM! There it is. If you’ve experienced this enough times, as I have, you eventually learn how to protect yourself from the fallout, and move on with only the loss of a little time. But if you flat out ignore the signs, it can really hurt you. I’m happy to survive this week’s episode unscathed.
- Your story is your credibility, not your credentials. Put another way, your differentiator is your unique life experience. There’s way more value in you than in skills anyone can build.
- All you need for a 90-minute lecture to be worth your time is the one sentence that makes you rethink your whole business.
- Acceptance is being in full receipt of reality.
- Medical bills are impossible to budget for because no one will give you a straight answer on what anything actually costs.
- You can redirect the course of your entire day, week, life, just by redirecting your breath in your body. Breathe deep into your belly, your heart rate lowers, your blood pressure lowers, your vagus nerve is stimulated, your cortisol is lowered, your stress is reduced, your digestion improves, your immunity improves, you begin to heal.
- Two whole people recognizing themselves as individuals and taking responsibility for their own path through life while actively choosing to be the other person’s biggest supporter is my definition of partnership.
