It’s that time of year again! Tomorrow, September 23, 2015 marks 100 days to the end of 2015! Are you up for a challenge? For those of you who’ve been on this journey with me, you know how much I love a challenge! It’s a fantastic opportunity to work on and improve something significant in your life. And it’s even better when you can grow and have fun doing it! This time, instead of having you choose, I’m...

In positive psychology, the term “flow”, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does. In his book appropriately titled “Flow”, Csikszentmihalyi (who coined the term), describes flow as completely focused motivation. It is a single-minded immersion...

Feeling unmotivated? Stuck in a funk? We all have those days. You’re on a plan to create something in your life – your ideal body, a promotion at work or a fantastic product. But, you’re exhausted and just keep asking yourself “Why am I doing this?” As part of the goal setting process with each of my clients, I help them identify the ‘why’ behind their goal. It’s important to get really clear on the desired outcome,...

  Anyone that has worked hard towards the achievement of a goal or dream knows that there are major pitfalls that can come along the way. Events and situations that can derail you and your pursuit of the goal. It is in these intense, trying times that you need to draw upon your intrinsic motivation. WHY are you going for the goal in the first place? It’s been said that a person with a big enough “why” can overcome almost any “what”...

Great customer service? It’s not always easy to find. My way of dealing with it? Voting with my dollars – keep going to places that provide excellent service and stop going to those that don’t. Situations where I am less tolerant? The doctors’ office. I had an appointment with a gynecologist today. One would think that receiving good customer service and having a warm and welcoming atmosphere would not be too much to ask in an...

Have you ever started a habit where you did well for the first week or two, even rewarded yourself for your hard work and yet, a week or two after that, were unable to keep going? The culprit? Your reward! Yes. That’s right. You may have unknowingly, sabotaged yourself! Fundamentals first. There are two types of motivations: extrinsic and intrinsic. When we do an activity to get an external reward or avoid an external punishment, we’re extrinsically motivated. On...

I have an ever-expanding toolbox of strategies and techniques designed to help you be more effective, be happier and live a meaningful and purpose-driven life. It’s something I like to call, Living your Awesome. My source? Coaches, mentors, conferences, books, my experience from coaching hundreds of people over the past few years, as well as my own life experiences. But there is also another, surprising source: my day-to-day interactions with people around me. As a coach that firmly...

Yesterday, I reconnected with my college roommate after 7 years. I’d been meaning to call her for months and routine and life kept getting in the way. We finally connected yesterday and I realized how ridiculous it was that so much time had passed. What’s surprising is that we were really close. She’s actually my cousin and was my best friend throughout college! We just moved to different places after graduation and ‘got busy with life’. So...

Picture this, you make the decision to get in shape. You want to learn how to eat right and workout right so you can reach your goals. So what do you do? Look for an expert. After all, why reinvent the wheel? Surely, hiring a personal trainer and/or a nutrition coach is the way to go. The ‘expert’ has done it for countless clients and has the experience to know what works and...

    Ask anyone you know and the desire to be happy is at the core of what they really want. From my work over the years and my own experience, I know that one of the key factors for a happy life is having an atmosphere of growth – learning new things, forging new relationships and getting stronger and better at the things we value. Habits have an immense role in creating this atmosphere of growth because of their...
