What have you changed since COVID started?

“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” – Viktor Frankl

Rather timely given what we’re all facing.

How can you change yourself?

Where do you even start?

It can get a bit overwhelming.

Here are a few ways I’ve changed myself since COVID started:

1. Accountability groups

2. Working out 2x a day

3. Writing out a 3-year...

Stop letting other people dictate your limitations.

Stop letting other people dictate your limitations. There is a reason why they try to downplay your potential. [Hint: it has nothing to do with you] 🤔

There is something about you that scares them.

And so they project their own insecurity onto you, as a feeble attempt to prop up their own ego.

You represent their failure, their fear, their envy, their regret. A...

In light of all of this panic and all of this fear, be kind.

Be kind anyway, but especially right now, be it more than you have before.

People are being forced to make hard dec...

Owning who "you" are

When you are 5-6 years old, your life is pretty simple. You wake up, you have ideas, and passions, and you create a picture of the world. Then life happens. Your parents influence you, your friends, your teachers, then your boss at work, and so on.

When I attended the Rich Litvin "Intensive" last year, I learned that a lot of people (including myself) were li...

#RealTalk - The last week of July sucked for me.

Out sick most of the week - several deadlines pushed and the joys of working as a one-woman-shop fully realized when meetings were missed without notice because I wasn't able to reach out to everyone in time to cancel.

Guess what?


Am I behind? You bet.

Will I be able to handle it? Yep.

You know what we need to bring back?

The AIM Away Message.

People need to get away from their phone, email, slack, DMs etc

The away message was awesome for so many reasons

One - it let people know you were away!

How well do you care for your mind?

Put intention into what you feed your brain? Protect yourself with the content you consume day in and day out? 🤔
