Not For the Faint of Heart
Not For the Faint of Heart

Are you with me?

Tired of hearing canned phrase such as:

  • Mindset
  • Empowerment
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Level Up
  • Lean In
  • Change

Oh, and so much more…

The thing is, this is what I do for a living and there has never been a word or “title” that truly captures what it takes for my clients to achieve sustainable change. It is a process and:  

It takes bravery

When you reach out to someone what has the capability to help you dig deep and heal, you are fighting your every instinct to STOP!

Your subconscious is comfortable and knows your current life and knows how to navigate this existence, so it fears that you are stepping into new territory.

I have had clients come that have put this aside and are ready for anything different than what they have. And then they will either:

  • Remain engaged in the battle of their desire for something better

OR

  • Start off engaged, but then stop doing the work and slip back into their comfort zone

Like anything new in your life, when you start off it is confusing, it is hard, and it is messy. Change is exhausting and impacts your mind, your body, and your spirit.

Congratulations to those of you who are truly on this journey. Your bravery is inspiring.

This is not for the faint of heart.

It takes curiosity

When you have been brave enough to embrace the process of personal change and dig deep for your truth and your healing, you start to see life from different perspectives. You become curious, once again, like the four-year-old asking why, then why, and then why again.

You become comfortable with:

  • Dropping judgement
  • Asking more and more questions
  • Believing you do not have all the answers
  • Knowing there are other truths
  • Remaining fully present and in the moment

When you allow curiosity to become a natural skill it becomes a tool to creativity, intuition, and growth. It means you drop your ego and are open to possibilities you may not see right now. It means being fearless with change, embracing that you may be wrong, and learning from every possible interaction.

Congratulations, you are embracing life with the awe and wonder it deserves.

This is not for the faint of heart.

It takes doing the work

When you meet someone who has truly changed, you have met someone who has been brave enough to face themselves and curious enough to find new answers. This is someone who does the work every single day.  

This takes perseverance and focus. It means checking in with yourself every moment of every day. It means honoring yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Doing the works means you are living with:

  • Integrity, knowing your values and living accordingly
  • Ethics, choosing to live reliably, responsibly, and ergonomically
  • Leadership, modeling behavior that motivates and inspires people to be more
  • Vulnerability, willing to look at your pain and do what it takes to heal and forgive

Doing the work means you are pushing through, even when you don’t want to today. It means knowing this is hard, understanding that no one else cares about your growth, and being strong enough to get past your desire to take a break, and you move forward anyway.

Congratulations on your strength and showing up for you.

This is not for faint of heart.

Personal development does not happen with a weekend retreat. It does not happen with reading books, reading blogs, or listening to videos. It does not happen with a deep conversation with your coach.

You will have breakthroughs, gain clarity, and maybe a different perspective.

But real change happens with emotional fortitude, doing the work every single day.

What would it take for you to step out of your comfort zone and be brave enough to change, curious enough to hear something new, and strong enough to do the hard work on you every day?

It takes allowing yourself to know you are worthy of self-care and self-development. It takes having someone at your side guiding you through the barriers that could hold you back. It takes someone who has done it and is willing to go through it with you.

This is not for faint of heart, but if you are ready:
