Is Your Work Fulfilling You or Draining You?
I hope you answered "fulfilling me, of course!" However, what I have found in 15+ years of coaching 1000's of people is that often times a person's Fulfillment becomes the most draining part of their life.
So this week's focus is to create some simple steps in your life so that you can create ways to leave "work" at work. First, we are going to go through five simple ways to leave work stress at work, whether you are an employee, a manager, or a business owner.
Next, we are going to go through some bonus tips for business owners OR those of your that work from a home-based office space.
Let's dive in!!
Whether you have a cubicle, or you have an...
It's been such a crazy week for me! I'm sure you know the feeling! It was like no matter what I did, I just felt OFF TRACK every day! The craziest part is, this was the week that I taught 4 days in a row on how to establish consistent habits that lead you to fulfill the best version of yourself.
I think the Universe has such a great sense of humor! Sometimes all we can do is laugh, remind ourselves that we are human, and focus on getting back on track and re-starting a positive streak of momentum.
If you have been participating in the free four-week FWORDS RESET Experience, I want to thank you and congratulate you! Whether you've watched the training live or on a replay, whether you've watched one video or have completed all four-weeks, the key is you took time out of your day to work on YOU! To gain insights, motivation, and tools to live your highest and best life! And for that, I am proud of you!
I hope you had a Fantastic Week! Last Friday's F-Word blog was about how you can "Flip the Script" on your day, or any moment, by simply changing ONE word in how you approach the activities of your life.
We went from: "I have to"
To: "I get to"
Shifting from that little 4-letter word, to that little 3-letter word, makes ALL the difference in the world.
By Flipping your Script and using Visualization, you can build one of the top skills that the most successful people on the planet use every day! From Olympic athletes to billionaires... they all have this practice in common!
On one of my live broadcasts this week, I shared specifically how YOU can build this practice in great detail. And why scientifically it can work for anyone - like you! So I want to invite you to watch that training now... for free!...
You did it! It’s FRIDAY!! Woo-Hoo!!
Is that the feeling that is most pervasive for you on most Fridays?
It is a feeling that I can completely understand and used to feel all the time. Similarly I can also understand the opposite feeling that many people experience on Mondays… “UGH!!”
And yet they aren’t all that opposite at all… They are actually very similar indeed.
Most of why we feel either of those emotions is because of how we are thinking about what we have to do, or where we have to go. It’s the verbal filter we are using to frame our experiences. How we are thinking about those things that lie ahead of us that we either look forward to or we dread completely.
In this week’s love letter from me to you (this email), I want to empower you with a very small, yet very powerful “Jedi mind-trick” that can change your life — forever.
This year is flying by!
Many of you have shared with me how you started the year with your goals, dreams, and resolutions written down and ready to slay 2019!
And you've also shared your disappointment in where you feel you've fallen short so far.
You've experienced some successes, yet you are overwhelmed, stressed, and frustrated because you feel you should be further along.
That's why I have created a new, FREE process and experience for you, your partner, your team, and anyone in your life who deserves to live a more fulfilled life!
I designed this free four-week #FWordsReset experience to be a step-by-step, fun, simple, yet very powerful process.
We will focus on who you want to be, what you want to achieve, how your thoughts help or hinder you, and simple pragmatic actions you can take each day to create the life you want to live.
What do you want to FEEL in the morning when you wake up? How do you want to FEEL as you go through your day? What do you want to FEEL as you lay your head to rest each night?
If your answer is vague, unclear, or unknown, it will be very difficult to manifest the life you were truly meant to live.
That doesn’t mean that there won’t be many many challenges along the way. What it does mean is that we get to choose how we feel about the challenges.
For example, we can all relate to being in bumper to bumper traffic, on our way to something important, or on our way home from our job or business. Now, look, traffic is one of the most FRUSTRATING things ever. And yet, we each have a choice in how we feel about it, in the moment.
One person may choose to crank up the music, reflect on their day with gratitude, think about their evening ahead with positive...
There is one key to your Successes. And it's the same key that leads to your "failures" or a life that is less than extraordinary.
The above video I did for my personal Friends and Family on Facebook Live. And I wanted to share it with you today so that you too can begin to raise the vibration on all you do and all you can become.

Have you ever had this conversation:
"Hi my friend. How are you? How's work going?"
"I'm alright. Work is fine. And you?"
What do you feel when reading the word "fine" in the response above? How do you feel when you tell someone you are "fine"? Do you mean, "I feel as excellent as a beautiful expensive FINE bottle of wine"? Or do you mean, "I feel fine, okay, so-so, borderline crappy and just getting by"?
Think about your current job, career, or business. Evaluate your level of Fulfillment now on a scale of 1 to 10 - where 10 equals ultimate Fulfillment and 1 equals shear misery. Write that number down in your journal.
This most dangerous score is a mediocre score between 4 and 6 because that means you are in the "FINE zone". That means you are not uncomfortable enough to make a change, like when you absolutely hate what you're doing, or are just surviving, willing to do anything it takes to make...
Have you ever really stopped to contemplate the complexity of your own fingerprint? There is nothing like it that exists anywhere else in the world. There are over 7 billion people currently on the planet, and not one other person has your same fingerprint. Not even if you have an identical twin. You still each have your very own fingerprint. How is it possible to have what seems like an infinite combination of simple a pattern of lines, on such a SMALL surface?
Let's take it another step... you have 10 digits that each have their own individualized fingerprint. So now we are talking about 10 times 7 billion different and unique fingerprints currently on the planet. That doesn't account for all that have come before us, and all who are yet to come. Truly, how is this possible?

“Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm” - Winston Churchill
Which is worse?
Failing flat on your face because you took a risk on something you were passionate about…. Or never ever failing at anything because you never take action on something that may be risky or new?
Failure is a necessary part of Success. There is just no way around it. If you are going to grow, stretch, experience newness, or expand your Fulfillment in ANY area of your life, Failure WILL be part of the equation.
How is that for positive and encouraging motivation?? :)
The fascinating part of accepting Failure as a necessary part of your path to success is that it Frees you! Failure can be reframed from being a disaster to being something that is celebrated.
