  • Why You Don’t Need Confidence

    Why You Don’t Need Confidence

    Everybody thinks confidence is needed in order to do things that make us uncomfortable. However, confidence comes from having successfully done something in the past. For example, most of us are pretty confident that we can drive to the store and back because we’ve done it hundreds of times. But what about when you’re wanting…

  • Why You Will Never Feel Ready

    Why You Will Never Feel Ready

    A common thread with clients recently is not “feeling ready” to take the next step. For some, it’s leaving their job. For some, it’s going back to school. For some, it’s applying for a leadership position at their job. For some, it’s signing up for open mic. Whatever it is, they think that they’ll eventually…

  • Why It Isn’t “Just the Way Life Is”

    Why It Isn’t “Just the Way Life Is”

    I remember getting to a point on my journey to finding my purpose where I told myself that “maybe this is just the way life is.” I wasn’t having any luck figuring it out and even though I wasn’t making the kind of impact I wanted to make, I didn’t hate my job at all.…

  • Why Knowing Isn’t Enough

    Why Knowing Isn’t Enough

    I want to challenge the statement that “When you know better, you do better.” You know you’re called to do something bigger than what you’re currently doing in your career. But you don’t. You know you’d be more fulfilled making more of an impact. But you don’t do it. You know taking a risk will…

  • Why You’re Always Busy

    Why You’re Always Busy

    We live in a world where we fill our lives up with stuff. Whether it be material stuff or busyness, our time is spent focusing on it. And most times it’s because we don’t want to deal with what is actually going on with ourselves. Before I knew my purpose, I would keep myself busy…

  • Why You Shouldn’t Quit

    Why You Shouldn’t Quit

    I have a client who thought doing your purpose was supposed to be easy. It was challenging for her so she thought “this must not be it” and quit. Can you imagine what the world would be like if people gave up on their dreams when it got hard?  I just think about all the…

  • How to Believe Something New

    How to Believe Something New

    You know those cartoons where the bright lights shine down from above and the opera sings “Hallelujah!!” in the background? That’s how I imagined finding my purpose would be. Yeah, that never happened. BUT when I found thought work, I learned that if I changed the way I thought about finding my purpose, that would…

  • How to Stop People Pleasing

    How to Stop People Pleasing

    Do you do things that you don’t really want to do in order to make other people happy? Do you say “yes” a lot when you really want to say “no”? If so, you’re probably a people pleaser. People pleasing is having an emotional need to please others, most times at your own expense. This…

  • It’s Not “Just How Life Is”

    It’s Not “Just How Life Is”

    When I ask clients why they choose to remain unhappy in their careers, their responses basically sum up to they thought it was “just the way life is.” It seems to be the norm to have a job that you hate, even though you spend most of the hours of your life doing it. We’ve…
