When You Find Something Wonderful

Yesterday, I missed a presentation. I was attending the PA Conference for Women in Philadelphia. I was on my way to this presentation when I decided to take a swing by the Coaches Corner, where I’d worked that morning. Last year, it hadn’t been very busy at the Coaches Corner where pro bono consultations were being offered.

I don’t know what changed but this year it was jammed. When I took a swing by, there was a line of women waiting to meet with a coach. All the coaches were busy, so I delightedly pitched in for the afternoon. (latest count, over 400 women experienced coaching!)

On my way home, I met a woman on the train platform. She asked if I’d been present at this presentation. I told her what occurred and she mentioned she’d missed it, also, but that there was such a buzz about it that she was disappointed to have not chosen it.

This morning, I looked this woman up online and watched her video presentation to Google employees earlier this year.

Oh! My!

Her name is Lisa Nichols. Her website is http://www.motivatingthemasses.com/about/lisa-nichols/

Her story is amazing and her skill set and desire to educate others about making shifts in thinking was powerful.

I recommend checking it out and here are a few of Lisa Nichols’ statements:

“Sometimes, the biggest breakthrough comes from what you unlearn.”

“I’m a major part of my own rescue.”

“Abundance is a 360 degree experience—health, relationships, and spiritual groundedness.”

“Money is a dignified conversation to have because when good people do well, they are empowered to make a difference in others’ lives.”

“Abundant thinkers give themselves permission to fail all the time.”

If any of these statements resonate with you, contact a coach.

Ready to make a shift in your thinking which assists you in changing your life for the better?

About That Goal

The goal was important. Important because it was made from the deepest of intentions, based upon values and life purpose. A plan was made. Life happened. The plan got sidetracked. Sometimes, life’s big stressors arrive in clusters. When they do, dealing with what’s most important takes precedence. The goal took a backseat to pressing priorities. […]

Your Next Step


You don’t know what it is. You do know what it is. Either way, you feel immobilized. Questions you might ponder: What’s holding you back? Is it perfectionism? Is it fear, grief, sadness, or self judgement? What would you do if you could put your concerns aside? When would you prefer to take action? How […]

Owning Past Learning is One Measure of Success. Why?


This past Saturday I got way outside of my comfort zone. I signed up for a 6 hr. chair yoga instructor training class. The class was open to yoga instructors and those with health care experience, PT’s, OT’s, RN’s, who had yoga class experience. I love yoga and have benefitted physically and emotionally over the […]

Uh, Oh, Here Comes Certainty!


Have you had an experience when you were certain, absolutely certain of something only to find out you were 100% wrong? I experienced this a few weeks ago. My husband and I went to the movies to see a film based upon a book we’d read several years ago. The film’s ending was not as […]

Career Decisions: Staying, Leaving, Growing


The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states “The average person born in the later years of the baby boom (1957-1964) held 11.7 jobs from age 18-48”. According to the bureau, longitudinal studies have not been performed to determine how many career changes those jobs may have included. We know that today’s college graduates will have […]

A 1st Step to Creative Change


We cannot feel inspired at all times. Sometimes, we feel flat even when change is looming. Always, change is looming. We may not feel inspired but most of us want to feel a sense of control. The 1st step to control and making a creative change is about knowing yourself very well. Who are you […]

Confusion to Clarity

Here we are. Spring is upon us. It looks, feels, smells like Spring! This AM, after an early morning run, I sat on our back porch with my cup of coffee, taking in the sight of our large cherry tree covered in blooms. The scent of my neighbor’s lilac bushes are wafting into our yard. […]
