Who Are YOU In The Midst Of Seismic Change?
The natural world teaches us there is no stillness. Everything is in movement all the time. The Earth's cycles around the Sun. The ebb and flow of the ocean. And you ... with the beat of your heart and the rhythm of your breath. Accepting that change is the only true constant in life is necessary to value that everything is temporary. You can either be afraid of it or you can embrace it with excitement and appreciation.
Have you ever been on a roller coaster? It is a perfect metaphor for life with its ups and downs ... surprise twists and turns ... and equal combination of both excitement and fear. The amazing part is that you trust you will be okay when the ride is over.
In the exact same way, how you choose to be in the midst of constant change ... excited or fearful ... determines the outcome as either success or failure, joy or disappointment, inner peace or outer chaos. It all hinges on whether you WANT it or not and how much you TRUST yourself.
There are two fundamental types of change ... the kind you want and the kind you don't.
You WANT this change.
It HAS to happen to create the life you want. You are growing a business, starting a business, changing jobs or careers, getting a divorce or making your health a true priority. Staying in this place of non-action is unacceptable. And yet, you don’t know what the next steps are and you are afraid of all the terrible, unforeseen things that could happen with so much at stake. Blowing up your current situation is necessary to create what you want for yourself … but there is always high risk where there is high reward. And you are very much afraid of what happens if you DON’T SUCCEED now that you are in unknown territory and on shaky ground. OR …
You DON’T WANT this change.
It was thrust upon your seemingly happy, comfortable (perhaps too comfortable) life. You’ve been laid off or fired … or you are about to be. The company that employs you was acquired and you don’t know if you’ll have a job tomorrow. Your company has hit a wall and the ship is sinking unless you can turn it around fast. Your spouse wants a divorce and you are shattered without a clue as to what to do next. You’ve just been diagnosed with a disease.
Screeeech … on go the brakes! Full stop. Your world just exploded.
While All Of These Momentous Events Are Different ... THEY FEEL THE SAME.
They put you in the SAME PLACE of fear, uncertainty, confusion and doubt … regardless of whether you wanted it or not. You don’t know what’s around the corner. You don’t know what your next steps should be. You are starting from scratch. And the risk of not succeeding is unthinkable.
Fear … of not knowing, not controlling, not succeeding … WILL keep you stuck … immobile … paralyzed … and powerless.
How Do I Know?
Neuroscience tells us that our bodies automatically react to fear in predictable ways. The higher, executive functions of our brain are shut down in order to prepare our bodies for fight – flight – freeze. And the impact of staying in that place of fear is disastrous.
Your ability to access your creativity, process information, retain memory, regulate emotion, make intentional choices, reflect, observe and learn are all limited and impaired. And if you stay in that place too long, chronic fear results in persistent anxiety and an inability to make rational versus impulsive decisions. You will create what you don’t want in your life.
The flood of the stress hormone, cortisol, in your body weakens your immune system, lowers bone density and increases weight gain, blood pressure and cholesterol. Once activated, cortisol needs to be physically released … or over time, it can cause cardiovascular damage, gastrointestinal issues, decreased fertility, fatigue, depression, PTSD, mental illness and premature death. Trauma lives in your body.
You are LITERALLY your own worst enemy at a truly critical time in your life.
You need a strategy for moving forward because the cost is not just time and opportunity, but YOU and your future.
AND you are mentally, physically and spiritually incapable of doing it on your own. You might think you can … but neuroscience tells us it isn’t true.
Moxie means “an attitude of fearlessness in everyday circumstances” … and my purpose is to help you short-circuit your automatic fear response, create positive mind-body-spirit alignment, learn to lead under pressure and be your best self regardless of the chaos around you. Your success can only be created from this foundation … and it is impossible to achieve alone, while you are still stuck in a fear cycle.
I’ve Experienced ALL Of These Events On BOTH Sides Of The Equation …
From Changes I Knew I Had To Make To Those That Were Thrust Upon Me.
If you've read my bio, it's clear that I know that fear. I live with the impact of past stress. I know how disorienting it is … wanting to move forward … yet, completely overwhelmed with pressure from all sides and no sense of direction. Through coaching and the use of my own methodology, I’ve broken the cycle in my own life. For myself … and countless clients … I’ve turned catastrophe into clarity, obstacles into opportunities and setbacks into success.
I want to help you do that too.
Work with me to free yourself from the fear-stress cycle and transform that intense pressure into a powerful springboard for creating unlimited opportunity.
After all, pressure creates diamonds ... and I want to see YOUR shine!
