Paying Attention

A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.
— Franklin D. Roosevelt

As I sit to write this week’s letter my head is spinning. Just 20 days into this new year and already so much has happened that I didn’t expect. This reminds me once again that life unfolds as it needs to and the only option we have is to be ready to go along for the ride.

That is where our goals for the year really become our compass. They give us an anchor to come back to when the seas of life become choppy. I think we all can agree that when we’re in the middle of the ocean and a storm comes, choppy waters simply cannot be avoided.

Last week I unexpectedly found myself in Southern California to give assistance in a precarious situation. Then the tides guided me away from that situation and I found myself riding a Ferris Wheel (literally) above the ocean with my beautiful daughter, Bailey. Talking with her on the phone just 5 days before, I had shared how much I was missing her. Then bam! There I was sitting next to her, totally unexpected and unplanned. Or was it?

It was an incredible, surreal, and wonderful way to remind myself that if we linger in what makes us sad for too long, we miss out on the many beautiful opportunities that life has waiting for us. I even had the chance to extend my trip and we spent 3 more awesome days together!

How is this new year cruising along for you? Are you finding the waters choppy or smooth? How are you doing with implementing the goals you have created? Are you perhaps still just thinking about going after them

During this extra unexpected time in California, I was scheduled to give the first of 12 monthly online Masterminds for 2019. As the powers that be would have it, we experienced technical difficulties and not being in my own office I had to go with the flow. While several members who signed up were unable to join, I went ahead and kept recording the session which was all about goal setting, avoiding that new year fade, and finding your definite chief aim for the year ahead.

Instead of getting caught up in the stress of yet another unplanned turn of events, I once again had to take a deep breath and pay attention to my goal of providing value for those who need help with their goals.

The recording turned out great and after the session I was able to figure out what happened so that all future online Masterminds will be able to run smoothly. I would love to share with you the link to that video recording along with a PDF download straight from my Victory Circles Immersion Program.

If you are looking to sail towards your goals, give yourself some time to really sit with the questions I ask that will assist you greatly in riding any storms that may come along your way.

Get clear, get happy, and pay attention through the waves that are coming on the journey ahead!

Decision Making

Decision Making

Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Decisions are one of the most important things we do to keep our lives and businesses moving forward. After all, a bird can’t fly if it doesn’t decide to jump!

There are good decisions and bad decisions. The worst decision is no decision at all, as waiting for tomorrow with some kind of enlightenment or magic to happen usually leads to nothing ever coming. We have to go after what we want and the longer we wait to make a decision, the harder it is to make it happen.

My last week involved making a variety of difficult decisions. There were many moments that could have left me stuck, but thankfully I created the following 7 step framework to help keep the momentum moving forward…

7 Steps to Making a Decision

  1. What would it look like if I didn’t do anything and didn’t make this decision?

  2. What are the pros and cons of each option?

  3. How often have I had to make this same decision over and over again?

  4. What has the outcome been when I didn’t make the decision?

  5. What scares me about making this decision?

  6. What excites me about this decision?

  7. Do I have a deadline for this decision? Can I make the decision before the deadline? A goal is just a dream with a deadline.

Any decision needs to be followed up with the word trust. This trust is required so that you feel good about the decision and all parties who are involved. While the outcome of your decision will shift based on unknown factors, it’s time to stop second guessing and make the decision.

As I write this Victory Letter, outside my window are a variety of birds eating from the bird feeder my husband recently refilled. It dawns on me how important it is to use our instincts in making decisions quickly when opportunity knocks.

The birds were hungry and found a source to eat! Simple decision, right? We are quite similar to the birds, as usually we need one person act in a way that affects how the rest of us will live. It’s a domino effect that starts with a decision!

On the road ahead I’m looking forward to making many more clear decisions and trusting the process. How about you?

Avoid the New Year Fade

Avoid the New Year Fade

You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.
— Tony Hawk

Yeah! We made it to 2019! As a matter of fact as this Victory Letter drops into inboxes across the globe we are actually completing week 1 of this brand new year.

We are on cue to head into the time I have come to think of as “new year’s fade.”

The time when, if we allow it, our new year commitments start to lose the glitter, celebration and hope of the new year.

I believe and have seen it to be true that when a resolution becomes a passionately felt goal, attached to a big vision with action steps it is indeed doable.

My first question of this bright shiny new year for you…

Do you love what you do most of the time?

Let’s face it – it’s hard to joyfully force ourselves to continuously do things we don’t like, from the work we do daily to the exercise routine we follow. We have to find ways to love it!

One day last week I grabbed my iPad and watched a few YouTube videos.

One of them was Casey Neistat interviewing the famous skateboarder turned entrepreneur Tony Hawk. I watched with great interest as Tony shared his passion for his life which turned out to be way beyond his fame and fortune.

Now some might arguably say, “well sure he’s one of the lucky ones who has had success since an early age.” This is true to an extent as he actually bought his first home when he was only 17 from skateboard sales. Tony accomplished it with a passion and love for of all things – skateboarding. A passion that at the time most people viewed as a joke for a career.

His passion eventually led to saying yes to the opportunity to create a video game around skateboard, and the “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater” empire has created a following of fans that has taken him to a net worth of $140 million!

Casey asked Tony, “what is the one piece of advice today for someone who is trying to chase down their passion with something that could carry them through their whole life?”

I loved Tony’s response, “To do what you truly love, learn all aspects of it even if the things aren’t interesting to you or as exciting or sexy. Because in the end you are going to benefit from the facets of this thing you love doing.”

He went on to say that if someone asks you the age-old question about how you are, if you can answer, “Living the Dream” and mean it, you have reached success.

I sat there contemplating my own life and asking myself the question, "am I living the dream?" I watched the sunrise outside my window and a smile came to my heart because I could honestly say a resounding “YES!”  

Beyond a fulfilling personal life, every day I get to make a difference in the lives of my clients. I deliberately made the choice years ago not to be the richest coach on the planet and brag about my $10,000 monthly program, but instead to make a difference with small business owners who were struggling to make their dream a reality. Helping someone find the confidence and clarity to follow their business dream gives me a feeling of true fulfillment.

The truth is that most of the times my clients are already living right in the middle of their dream, but they just can’t see it because they are so overwhelmed with all that it takes to run their business. They have stopped having fun and have allowed the fear around money to start killing their dream.

Don’t get me wrong, money does matter – you can’t run a business or a life without it. The key is to get control of your business, put systems in place, get support, tackle the critical marketing elements, and love the parts of the business that brings you the greatest joy.

If you have been struggling to find the joy, stop and take an inventory of where you have been and where you want to go. Get crystal clear why you are moving towards the path ahead to avoid the fading of your dreams. 

There is a saying that goes, “do what you love and the money will follow.” I believe that it is critical to inject into that equation hard work, lots of courage, and finding the people who will support and encourage you on your journey.

Here’s to living the dream!

Let's do this

Often when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.
— Fred Rogers

Over the last few weeks I asked a variety of business owners what the number one obstacle they felt had stopped them or slowed down their success in the year gone by. 

Here were the most common obstacles:

  • Trusting myself

  • Perfectionism

  • Self-doubt

  • Listening to other people’s bullsh*t

  • Lack of time and focus 

  • Uncertainty

How about you? Do any of these reasons ring true for you?

Are you prepared to handle the obstacles, challenges, and hurdles that will be on the road ahead of you? We can’t avoid these sticking points, but how we handle them decides whether we will meet our goals or not.

Looking at your goals for the year ahead, how will you manage these challenges?

The hardest part about achieving goals we desire is getting honest about facing our challenges head on. Every day can be a fresh start if we can let go of who we “should” be and embrace who we truly are.

There are 3 steps to facing a challenge:

  1. Identify: where you are now?

  2. Dream: where you want to be in the future?

  3. Strategize: how you are going to get there?

The “how” is the game changer. This requires most of our time when really pulling apart what we want to achieve and how we will get there. When we have clarity about our goal and the steps required to get there, the resulting confidence will build momentum to guide us forward. 

Start with where you are right now, then spend time envisioning what you really, really want and deconstruct how you will get there. This desire and passion is critical to carry you though the challenges.

Give yourself some alone time to be honest with yourself and ask the important questions regarding where you have really been and where you want to really go. Let’s do this!

Happy Friendships

Happy Friendships

There are good ships and wood ships that sail the sea, but the best ships are friendships may they always be!
— Irish Proverb

This past week as I prepared my Christmas Cards to send to family and friends it reminded me of the lovely peace that comes from keeping in touch with the people we care about. Remembering family and friends out loud in one form or another can lift the spirits of all concerned.

Isn’t that what friendships should be all about? Lifting each other up?

Last week I shared the Goals tool for 2019 and one of the 6 categories of setting goals was friendship. Working through that really got me thinking about the how I wanted to spend more time nurturing friendships in the year ahead. I really do believe being a great friend as well as receiving the many benefits of a great friendship is one of the great joys of life. Remember family members can be friends too. ;)

With Christmas just a few days away, my gift to you is in sharing this ABC’s of friendship by Pam Fraser.  My hope is that the process will get you thinking a little bit more about those people that are special to you in your life and how we each can always work on being a better friend.

THE ABC'S OF FRIENDSHIP
Always be honest…
Be there when needed…
Cheer them on…
Don't look for their faults…
Every chance you get, call!
Forgive them…
Get together often…
Have faith…
Include them…
Just listen…
Know their dreams…
Love unconditionally…
Make them feel special…
Never forget them…
Offer help…
Praise honestly…
Quietly disagree…
Rescue them when needed…
Say you're sorry…
Talk frequently…
Use good judgment…
Value them!
Welcome them when they need a hug!
Xpress your thankfulness…
Your words to comfort…
Zip your mouth when told a secret… 

Wishing you the love of this season and friendships everywhere you turn.

Unwrap Your Goals

Unwrap Your Goals

Work is love made visible.
— Kahil Gabran

A family tradition has so sweetly been brought to life over the last couple of years as my grown children have grown older, and that is to sit down and do our annual goals together. Since we were together as a family over the Thanksgiving holiday we went ahead and created our individual one page 2019 goals several weeks ago. Now we can cheer each other on!

It feels good to have my goals ready to go at this point of the game so that over the next few weeks I can plan the action steps I need to take to make them actually happen. Because without goals and the plan that backs them up we can find ourselves shooting from the hip everyday and not getting to where we want to go.

So today I thought I would share with you this goal setting process complete with the download for the one-page goal setting sheet:

2019 Goals Worksheet.png

Tap Here to Download Worksheet

How to Use

Since life is multi-faceted and not all about work or all about play the goals are broken down into 6 areas to cover the whole beautiful thing: 

From Top to Bottom

  1. Health – no mistake it comes first because without it…we are in a mess of trouble.

  2. Love – simply put it does make the world go around.  Who is going to fill your heart this year and how will you deepen the love you have in your life?

  3. Career – That place where we spend most of our waking hours. How will you give it purpose and meaning in the year ahead? Or, enhance the purpose and meaning you already have working for you.

  4. Money – Another key element that makes the world go around. Career helps us to earn it and then what?  How much is enough and what does it mean to you?

  5. Friends – While love is utilized in friendships, this category is about taking stock of friendships and who you are spending time with and why? What do you want to see change?

  6. Adventure – Because yes every life needs a little more adventure from travel to doing something you have never done before. What would get your adrenaline pumping in the year ahead?

From Left to Right

  1. Now - Where are you sitting right now in this area?

  2. Future – What do you want to be your future?

  3. How – How will you get from where you are to where you want to be?

For Best Results

Take the time to sit with those who will give you honest feedback (in a good way) and enjoy the process. The sooner you start planting seeds, the sooner they will grow. Make sure to push through any disagreements that come up and complete the worksheet. Your future self will thank you!

Having trouble completing this worksheet? Schedule a clarity session.

Here’s to making our dreams for the year ahead come true as you begin to unwrap the gifts that goals can bring.

Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda

Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose. Nothin’, don’t mean nothin’ if it ain’t free.
— Janis Joplin

This past week I shared my last live Instagram workshop for 2018.  One of the biggest concerns that kept coming up for the small business owners and non-profits in the room was time. How would they find the time to add another task into an already full day? Even if it would improve the results of what they were already doing.

As I took the scenic two-hour drive towards home after the event through the beautiful mountains of Colorado, I thought about the element of time and my own desire to implement new ways to improve my business. Especially with the realization that the bright shiny new year of 2019 is just weeks away.

Weaving through my thoughts was the words of a Victory Letter reader who had responded to the last Victory Letter on the topic of implementing ideas. Rick Laughlin, FAPLD, QWEL, UNLA, GWA, WNLA, PPA, NALP is a Landscape Design Architect I had the opportunity to a few years ago to meet at a workshop I was teaching in Salt Lake City.

Rick reached out and said, “For me most ALL of my ideas or goals become reality since I set those goals and never, ever let any one or any thing, or excuses get in the way until I achieve my goals.”

Well of course I had to learn more because as you might remember I had shared last week that only 8% of the population (on average) achieves their goals. I asked Rick to share his top reason for achieving such an awesome way to be. Here is what he shared… it may surprise you, as I know it did me;

“About 15 years ago I had a minor stroke… I changed everything in my life taking control of my time 24 hours a day, not stressing about anything and always sticking to my short and long-time goals... everything else: the interruptions, the negative people, etc. are just inconveniences!!! I am really NOT a part of this modern day, upside down, crazy world that we live in...my time is all mine and I am totally FREE!!!

Thank you Cheri!”

Wow – as simple and complex (if you can’t break free of the ties that bind you) as that.

We speak of freedom often as a nation here in the US but how often do we honestly feel it?

I don’t know about you but as I make my plans for 2019 in these weeks ahead freedom in the form of peace of mind as Rick shared is at the top of the list for me.

No more “woulda, shoulda, couda’s" for this victory girl! Are you in with me? I have some exciting things to share in the weeks ahead about new workshops, a free monthly Victory Circle Master Mind call, and additional coaching programs to assist you in your journey. 

Here’s to making the plans in the weeks we can actually implement.

Giving From Within

Giving From Within

Some of the best ideas come at the most inopportune times, don’t close your mind to them.
— Brad Feld

It’s always interesting to me when an idea starts to brew for a Victory Letter. Then, if I fully embrace the idea, like a magnet more thoughts from a variety of people and situations gives me rich input on the topic.

This the time of year we tend to turn inwards for a variety of reasons. For many of us in colder climates the weather along with shorter days disrupts our patterns and can leave us feeling more inner reflection.

As the calendar year begins to also wind down there is the reflective pieces of the year gone by that tend to pop up. 

With all of this in mind the question remains…

What is left to be done before the year closes?

Or perhaps, what needs to be re-evaluated that didn’t get done?

What were the ideas that you had that never either saw the light of day or were perhaps never given full wing power to come to life and fly?

As you think about this and observe what you did and didn’t do with the ideas that came your way, I would ask you to think about what ideas died because of the fear to fully implement them?

Specifically, what was the fear that bubbled up when it was time to make the idea a reality?

Did you know that on average only about 8% of the population makes an idea a reality? 8 percent! That seems crazy and is allowing for so many ideas to lay dormant.

Today’s podcast I am sharing is with Eric Hozempa, Director of the Longmont Community Foundation we dive deeper into this topic of Growing Your Nonprofit. Eric shares that in the non-profit world (just like the for-profit world) dreams die because of allowing one excuse after another to get in the way of bringing an idea to life.

One of my favorite moments that transpired within this conversation was what Eric called, “Bless and Release.” The idea of sometimes letting people and situations go for the health of the organization. Listen Now >>

This is where the awareness of giving from within comes into place. As we head into this season of giving what can you give to yourself and then in turn to give to others by digging deep beyond your deepest fears.

Is it…

Fear of change?

Fear of failure?

Fear of what others will say?

Fear of disappointment (either yourself or someone else)?

Who or what could give you the courage to stand up to this fear and take the ideas that are burning inside of you out into the world?

I encourage you to sit with this and write it out. Yes, take the ideas that are brewing up inside of you and write them down on paper. This action in itself will allow you to see beyond what is just clicking around in your conscious mind. By putting it onto paper you can further see what the idea looks even more like in the light of day.

This is one of the reasons that goals are so much more effective when written then just thinking about them. When we write it something begins to shift.

Is this enough? No. The next step is to find someone to make you accountable for making this happen. For asking for help from another human being to keep you from retreating back into your thoughts. To keep you from overthinking an idea until it retreats back where it came from.

Up for the challenge? Ready to give from within? You can and must do this. Remember I am here cheering you on!

Connected Strength

There is no such thing as a self-made man/woman. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the makeup of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.
— Anonymous

This morning I sit in reflection of the Thanksgiving festivities that were just enjoyed and celebrated with my family. I love the words of this quote today (given to me in a cookbook from my daughter Bailey) as they are a great reminder of just how much we are intertwined with each other.

With some people we are connected for 5 minutes and some, like our family, a lifetime.

With my children Travis and Bailey not being able to also come home for Christmas we decided to celebrate that holiday over the weekend as well. One of the gifts that my son Travis gave us was a sculpture kit with the idea of immersing one hand of each of our immediate family members in the sculpture to represent the heart of our family.

My family and I creating the mold for the sculpture.

My family and I creating the mold for the sculpture.

It was an interesting process creating an exact mold of our hands and today's pictures are the final result. It is a great reminder of how we are intertwined and the strength with have comes from the company of others. We may not always get along because of our distinctive personalities, but when you remember to look towards that core of love (as with any relationship) it makes all the difference.

Removing the rubber mold to reveal the solid stone.

Removing the rubber mold to reveal the solid stone.

Now as you head towards the busy time of the holiday season ahead, be sure to not get so wrapped up in the “doing” of the season. Be connected in the moment with those who you wish to gather with and spend your time.

Take the needed time to remind the people you care about what they mean to you. Whether it’s a quick text/email saying hi, a long phone conversation, a cup of tea together, or the beauty of a greeting card that really shares how much you care.

Tis the season of giving ahead of us. Let’s give from our hearts!

Gratitude Gathering

Gratitude Gathering

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
— Melody Beattie

As the Thanksgiving week looms before us it is my hope that you are beginning to get into the vibe of this holiday before us.

Some will gather round the table with those they love, and others will hopefully find peace in where they are in the moment. The idea around this holiday is to give gratitude no matter where the day finds you.

Life can get hectic at this time of the year. Be sure to carve out some time for yourself to open yourself up to fully enjoying those whose table you find yourself sitting at. I am blessed to have 18 family members at my table this year and will need for sure to take some deep breaths along the way (as will they!). Compromise is the word I am taking into this holiday.

Recently during my morning momentum time, the words of a poem came flowing from my fingertips and onto the page. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to say how grateful I am to be with you each week in this letter and to share this poem with you.

May these words bring you peace and a look into what’s possible each and every day.

Making each day a holiday.

A Morning Poem

Morning thoughts abide
A new day dawns, the rise of the tide

Freedom, joy and all in between
Beauty beholden and rarely seen

Gentle pink morning sky
Giving the courage to do more than try

Holding me up 
Spinning me round

Keeping me focused
Eyes wide open, peace found

Never before has there been this day
A time to discover, run, jump and play

To feel our purpose, calling and might
Sitting with wonder as day comes from night

Here is where the essence of our day will begin
Stillness to opening all that is within

All is carried inside my mind, heart and soul
Our labors must be done with love - that is the toll

Blessings and thank you for the power I seek
Gives me this day to climb another peak

Writings and thoughts of what will be
Makes you - you and me - me

So excited that Travis and Bailey (my grown kids) will be traveling here for Thanksgiving from Northern and Southern California.  In the spirit of gratitude and compassion for the all those who have lost so much in the state of California I want to ask your help in giving to the California Fire Foundation. This is an established organization that assists in both financial and emotional support for those who have been affected by these devastating fires.

Thank you so much and wishing you many blessings at whatever table you find yourself lucky enough to be at this Thanksgiving.
