If you’re like most of my clients, you know what success feels like. And that lasting, fulfilling and multi-dimensional success is not built overnight.
You and I also know the more successful you are, the less people can relate to you, and even fewer of them are willing to tell you what you need to hear. So, I’ll be the one to tell you the truth in the most loving way: it’s time we have a little heart-to-heart.
What if, despite your big dreams and achievements, you discovered that somehow you are:
… still playing a smaller game and holding back…
… settling for mediocrity instead of rising to being outstanding,
… ticking off all the boxes, but living out someone else’s definition of success (which you’ve long outgrown)…
… squeezing yourself into other peoples’ standards and expectations…
… entertaining judgmental and limiting self-talk because you’re caught up in myopic thinking, experiencing tunnel-vision, and are driven by your go-getter attitude…
I was there, it nearly cost me my business, my marriage, my life.
By the age of 30, I had more than I could ever asked for – successful international athletic career, academic accolades, love, family, happiness, home, thriving business (which I started after I lost my job the same week I found out I was pregnant).
While powering through the days of snuggling a newborn, caring for a toddler, managing my team, and planning to retire my husband… something unexpected happened.
Post-partum depression and two trips to the ER due to burnout were clear signs that the same work ethic, strategies, and mindset that had given me everything, could now kill me.
I would love to say that what happened next was a movie-like epiphany and an instant transformation that has catapulted me right back to the top.
But. It. Wasn’t.
Through the journey that followed, I unlearned, undid, and unmasked it all.
To reevaluate, release, redefine, reframe, rebuild.
To transform and transmute this feeling of deep disconnect, overwhelm, isolation, frustration.
I looked critically at everything: my beliefs, stories, attitude, habits, conversations, expectations.
Including my business, my marriage, my family, myself.
I am in a very different place now…
And, I figured out a way to create intentional living, business by design, and make a greater impact with greater joy, fulfillment, excitement, ease, and grace…
… while becoming a conscious parent to our crystal children;
… while traveling with my family for months on end;
… while reconnecting and recommitting to my loving husband (after my ego was willing to walk away from it all);
… while being a (to quote my clients) reliable, unflinching, insightful, intuitive, strategic, and compassionate consultant, coach, and mentor to my clients…
…while simplifying our strategies and cutting my working hours in half…
